that time I tried the blogger pose and looked like a dead fish

Let's just talk about these photos.
As I walked outside by my apartment complex to have my roommate take these photos of me, a bunch of boys were standing on the top floor balcony and asked what we were doing.
I immediately said "Don't judge me! It's for my blog!"
Then they proceeded to photobomb us. Typical boys.

Once we didn't get photobombed, Amy started taking photos of me and I told her she should take a photo of me doing the blogger pose....that ended badly. (hint: go to last photo)

She said: "You look like a dead fish."
Yup. I'm cool.

dating slash revelation slash gospel rant.

As a 21-year old girl who has made big decisions in her life and consistently uses her agency, I want to discuss a little bit about personal revelation.

When I was a sophomore in college, I was an undeclared major. I had previously been an Elementary Ed major and knew that wasn't the major for me. I was really worried because I didn't know what I wanted to do. I thought I wanted to do Public Relations but I was unsure. As I was talking to my dad about it, he gave me amazing advice which at the time I didn't really understand. 

He said: You have to make a decision and go for it. If it isn't right, God will tell you. 

Oh, truer words have not been spoken. I have employed this way of thinking into all aspects of my life. Especially dating.

People believe that to make any decision in their life, they need to pray about and go to the temple. Now, don't misunderstand me. When you are making BIG decisions in your life (ie: marriage, moving to a different city, kids, etc.) praying and going to the temple is essential to help you make those decisions. 

But guys, lets be real for a moment. You have your own agency. God doesn't expect you to pray about every decision you make. He TRUSTS you! That's why he gave you agency in the first place. You have the ability to decide what you want to do. If you are praying and reading your scriptures consistently, you have the Spirit with you to guide you in those decisions. If you're making a wrong one, God will let you know. He won't lead you astray. 

I recently dated a boy in November. Things didn't work out, but did I pray about whether or not to date him? Heavens no. I thought he was cute, he was a good member of the church and I wanted to date him. So I did. 

It is important for us as members of the church to trust. I know personal revelation is different for every person. However, I think if you pray about every decision you make you miss out on a lot of opportunities. You don't take risks and you don't give things a chance. 

You know that girl you didn't really know if you wanted to date? Date her. What if it turns into something great? You never know!!

So go get it tiger! Believe in your ability to make decisions and live life to the fullest.

Kimono? Yes, Please!

Sometimes my blog friends win giveaways and then I get a FREE kimono . So that's rad. Elise is the bomb. It's from the cutest boutique called Adorn-It in Logan. So fun!
But I'm seriously in LOVE with this floral piece! Also, I can't tell you how essential having a black maxi dress is! If you don't have one in your closet, GET ONE. This has definitely saved my life more than once and it's adorable!

In other news, my former roommate Emeline is AMAZING when it comes to taking photos. Am I right? She's the greatest. If you want to follow her stuff, you can follow her on Instagram: @emeliiine23.

Plus who doesn't love new photos of themselves!

Digging this Dress

I LOVE dresses.
And not only this dress, but I LOVE Eshakti.
If you don't know me, you know that I love this company and refer to them any chance I get. 
As a tall girl, I love that I can customize the dress length. Makes my life SO MUCH easier. 
What clothing company is your favorite?

How I Feel About Love

First off, I made this graphic so that's cool.

Second, I have been really struggling---just with the fact that I feel like all the good boys in the world have retreated back into hibernation mode and are starting to become grumpy bears. 

Third, I have the greatest friends in the world and my girl Ashley sent me this quote and I've been reading it all week. 

It describes exactly how I need to start thinking about love. It's not about being the perfect size or being the best kisser. It's ALL about God and sometimes I forget that.
