velvet girl

it's been an entire week in canada and i couldn't be anymore excited to be home!
living in a different country definitely makes you realize how valuable life at home is.
it's been such a relaxing break thus far.
being able to finally see some of my close friends has been an amazing christmas gift! 
also being employed at american apparel through the holidays has been wonderful/awful for my bank account at the same time. 
awful because i buy something every shift, whoops, can't blame a girl.

i hope you all had a wonderful christmas and i hope you're ready for the new year!

i recently came across this picture while going through my camera's memory card.
it makes me miss those friends that i made in high school and i seem to be nostalgic on memories that we made.
listening to mess is mine by vance joy doesn't help the emotional loss of these friends but my new journey in university has made up for most of it.
three weeks in and i'm loving it! (and i've actually made friends!!!!)
but seriously, if you love education and want a new experience i highly recommend attending a college or university of some type and just living the experience.
sorry about the lack of outfit posts i need to find friends who will take pictures.

a three syllable word which holds such power over one. 
such a small word if you put it into perspective.
but the meaning which it holds is continuously lacking in many people around us. 
everyday i'm becoming more aware of those who surround me who lack confidence. 
it makes me very sad because i once was in their place and i know it's a tough spot to be in. 
personally, i found my confidence lacked towards beauty.
i never found myself ugly, but i wouldn't categorize myself as the idea of "pretty" or "beautiful".
i always felt that those around me judged me based on my appearance and i found it difficult to meet people based on these thoughts. throughout high school i became more aware of my issue with low confidence. 
i finally realized that i needed to fix my issues with myself and how i looked at my beauty.
i mentally sat down with myself and gave myself the pep talk of the century and i was slowly able to get out of my slump.
each day i found something i loved about myself, as cliche as that is, and i would think about it during the day if i wasn't feeling confident. 
now i can say that i love my eyebrows, my sense of style, my hair length, the clarity of my skin, and my eye colour. 
even just starting out with one thing made it possible to get to where i am today!
