Favorite Fashion Item for Spring 2018



I'm gonna level with you all here: I don't really follow trends. I keep an eye on 'em, sure, but I'm not one to follow the flock. And chances are high that if I am being trendy, it's because I was probably already wearing it.

Sheer dresses? Check. Print on print? Check. Shirts under dresses? Check.

But there is ONE 2018 spring/summer trend I'm finally getting on board with and that, my friends, is the jumpsuit. I've always though they looked fabulous on other people and were the next best thing to dresses if you want more mobility forgiveness. But I could never bring myself to wear them - they'll feel awkward, it's too hard to go to the restroom, nobody in my area wears this and I'll be seen as pretentious, etc.

I used to care about that stuff.

Both of my two black jumpsuits came to me via Goodwill - one is a slinky little number with draped pockets and a very low-cut v-neck. The other, which I'm wearing today, is a loose and long jumpsuit with an elastic waist, relaxed fit, and geometric lace print on the shoulders. One is perfect for a night out if I'm feeling especially optimistic about my body and the other is perfect for a day at the office with sneakers and a blazer.




But I want....more.

Now I want them in colors and prints. I want them fitted and relaxed. I want them long and short. This could become a problem....

  1. That sounds like it would be a such a fun problem though...I love these. They are so elegant! I wore a jumpsuit exactly once. It had buttons all the way down the front and the bathroom situation put me off them for the time being...

How I Fail At "Adulting" Even Though I'm 31!

Inspired by this post from Sian Katherine, I thought it would be really interesting to examine the ways in which I, a thirty-one year old human being, utterly fail at being an #adult. In recognizing that we all have different abilities based on our cognitive understandings, physical and mental health, and socio-economic privileges, keep in mind that this is all in good fun, based on my own personal experiences, and that there is no one true way to 'adult'.



1. I do not possess a driver's license. When many of my sixteen year old peers were out getting their permits and indulging in six hours of behind-the-wheel training, I was quaking with anxiety and pretty much putting it off entirely. I first got my learner's permit when I was 18 and even though I did some actual driving, never pursued getting my license.

I'm 31, and I've only recently acquired my learner's permit again after at least a decade of no driving.

Menhera and Yami Kawaii - So Cute I Could Die

Unless you're an avid follower of the more obscure fashion trends to creep out of Harajuku in the last two decades, you probably haven't heard of the fashion subculture movements that are challenging Japan's silent mental illness epidemic and suicide problem.

*Content Warning: Mentions of mental illness, self-harm, suicide, and other potentially triggering ideas. Read at your own risk.


Enter Menhera and Yami Kawaii.

According to the tumblr account fymenhera, menhera (メンヘラ) is a Japanese slang term derived from the English 'mental health' and sparked a whole underground fashion subculture often referred to as yami kawaii (病みかわいい) or "sick cute".

Refinery29 did a piece on this a while back, which you can find here or simply watch the video below:


Japan (and other parts of Asia) have long carried an intense and negative stigma towards mental illness. Those suffering from mental illness or other mental health problems had very little in the way of resources or…

~ The Deep Questions ~ Tag

So I pulled this questionnaire off tumblr from user fuckyeahsurveys. So let's dive deep into some of our personal feelings and beliefs on a variety of thought-inducing questions.


Deep Questions 1. What is more difficult for you, looking into someones eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someones eyes when they are telling you how they feel?Oh, this is a tricky one. Eye contact is painfully uncomfortable for me anyhow but I would have to say it's more difficult when someone is telling me their feelings. Being on the receiving end of something like that makes me feel kind of powerless and at their mercy. If it was the other way around, I'd have control of the conversation and would be more confident. I think.
2. Think of the last time you were REALLY angry. WHY were you angry? Do you still feel the same way?The last time I was really angry happened quite recently, actually. I was met with a barrage of insults and personal attacks late at night, many …
