    Quote Challenge~Day 2 (James Dean)

I got it the summer before 9th grade in 2009, and I can feel the nostalgia as I write this. Even though I’ve lost it more times than I can count, it somehow never fails to find me. I would lie awake at night dreaming of celebrity crushes  while listening to Jewel or Norah Jones.

    The Liebster Award Strikes Back!

    Happy Friday everyone! And yes, the title of this post is a Star Wars reference lol. Normally today would be a Fashion Friday post, but today is special because I am honored to receive another Liebster Award!
