#teenvogue jeans: forever 21 | top c.o. element eden | sunnies: zerouv | shoes c.o lulus

It's still January, right? I didn't somehow sleep through six months of 2015 and land in June? Even for California, this is getting ridiculous. I don't even remember what my own eyes look like because it's been so long since I've seen my face without sunglasses. And yet, Florida is the sunshine state. k sure.

I found these jeans on a rack in Forever21, and though they were ridiculously overpriced and I told myself I definitely would not be buying them under any circumstances, I somehow magically ended up with them at the register. I was starting to panic a bit because as much as I needed these, I didn't NEED them. But I was committed, right? How much power was I giving this judgey cashier who was staring me down?? Was I about to star in a sequel to Confessions of a Shopaholic? I decided to suck it up. Then, she rang it up and said ""$4.96". Guys, I have NEVER moved myself and my purchases that fast out of a store. You know, in case they changed their mind or something. It was a solid steal: they've got a bit of a pattern that keeps them from being basic blue jeans, but doesn't put them in the "cheetah print jeggings" category. Goals.

At the risk of sounding like Gwyneth Paltrow/a middle aged lifestyle/beauty blogger, lately I have really been getting on my lipstick collection, and while I haven't found that one yet, I thought I'd just periodically update you guys.  I have currently landed on MAC "All Fired Up", which is a bit bouncier and pinker than my usual "vampire hunter death shade", as my brother has lightly termed it. Just means they won't see it coming.

I feel like time is moving faster,
 but that might also be because it's taking me so long to write this post.
