209 South Side

I have been living in Stockton,CA for almost a year and a half now. I can't believe that much time has already past and I still haven't gotten used to living here. 
It's way different than my Hometown of San Francisco or even Oakland... It's really nothing like the Bay Area at all. I feel like a City Girl trapped in a country environment and the most noticeable part is, I look like it! I always stand for being true to myself, know matter what anyone else thinks and that way of thinking is not going to change. Maybe that's why the people I have encounter out here gave me the nickname Pocahontas. 

PS: Have you gone though anything like this? If so, let me know your story.

I Need Your Help!

Hey fellow Shy Children!

I need your help! Blogging is something I really enjoy doing and passionately love. I come up with my own ideas and basically keep an open book about my life. But over the years of doing this I never really ask what you would like to see.
 That is why today, I need your help! 
I want to know what type of post/s you love and would like to see more of. I'm basically asking for your feedback as my reader/friend because you all take time out of your busy days to check out my blog, so the least I can do is share content that you like/love. So please leave a comment telling me everything you like and would like to see more of.

Hey fellow Shy Children!
It's that time again, where I have to clean out my phone and share a set of oh so lovely selfies. This set is actually kinda special because none of the photos ever made it to social media... Don't ask me why because I have know clue and even more of a 'no clue' to why they are still in my phone. But like the good saying goes, " someones trash is another persons treasure." So I hope you treasure these selfie shots.
PS: What photo/'s do you have in your phone that never seen the light of day on social media?

Favorite Candle? This is going to sound so basic and generic but Bath & Body Works "Leaves"... Yeah, I know basic! But I also really like Bath & Body Works Apple Crumble along with Targets fall limited edition candles from last year. I don't know if Target is doing the collection this year for there soy candles but if you want to see a video I did talking about Bath & Body Works cheap alternative candles check this video out!

Favorite Lip Color? My favorite lip color for the fall is anything vampy but more specifically on the purple/plum/ox blood/Bordeaux side of the scale.

Favorite Drink? Teas & apple cider... I really need a Keurig for this time of year. But if you were wondering what Starbucks drink I get, I love the Salted Caramel Mocha Frap. and the Green Tea Frap... Can't help it, I'm a cold drink Starbucks person.

Favorite Blush? I keep it vary natural in the fall time because I don't want it clashing with my bold lip. So I love to use the e.l.f. Blush Pallet in Dark and wear the two right colors mixed or I will wear Wet n Wild coloricon blush in 
Pearlescent Pink.

Favorite Clothing Item? I have two favorite fall clothing items. The first one would have to be my favorite black and grey striped cardigan sweater and my Timbs look a like boots.

Favorite Fall Movie? I associate fall time with  Halloween because it's really my favorite time of year/holiday so I love getting into the Halloween spirit. I did a blog post last year sharing with you all 10 Movies To Get You Into The Halloween Spirit, so I suggest you check that out and get inspired. But if I had to pick one I would have to say The Addams Family because you got to love Wednesday Addams.

Favorite Fall TV Show? This would have to be hands down American Horror Story. I'm obsessed with the series and I can't wait to watch this years Hotel themed one.

Favorite Thanksgiving Food? I live for Thanksgiving Cornbread dressing! With that being said I am very picky about who makes it and how it taste.

Favorite Halloween Costume? I am very Wizard of OZ when it comes to this. I can be the Good Witch of the North or the Wicked Witch of the West... But I'm going to be one.

This tag was created by Jaclyn Hill via YouTube. I was not tagged by her but I wanted to do it anyways. If you would like to do the tag, I tag you!

New In {Drjays Haul}

New In Drjays Haul 1
Labor Day weekend I placed an order on Drjays.com because I recently won a contest they were having for Back To School. The giveaway was to win a $100 gift card/store credit that you could use on there site to get cool new clothes to wear back to school. I of course am not enrolled in school but being able to shop and test out items that I can eventually share my thoughts and opinions with you, Is my favorite part.
I was going to go all out and pick hot stuff like the BOY London tee or crop top    or even a stylish bag but I new what I really needed as essentials and that's bras.
I am a plus size girl with a big chest so finding bras that fit and are actually my size is really hard and can be really expensive. But I have found the golden ticket to my problems! Drjays has a plus size intimates and sleepwear section that has a nice variety of plus size bras for an amazing low price. So I highly suggest you go over and check them out because paying $8 for a bra that retails for $35 is a great deal. 
Other than the bras I did get a nice pair of sandals called the Adidas Adilette and they are so freakin comfortable I can't even explain. I did get two other things but they weren't for me, so make sure to check out my YouTube channel to see those items.
Bras shown: Amazing Dot Support Push-up Bra, Best Kept Secret Lace Trim Bra, & Lace Trim Perfect Coverage Bra
PS: All bras mentioned come with bra extenders.

Insta Child: Photos From My life

Hey friends!
I know a lot of you don't follow me on Instagram or maybe you had know clue I was even on Instagram. But for any reason, Instagram is a place where I share a lot of photos from my everyday life and since you... My friends/readers are such a big part of my life, I wouldn't want you to miss any exciting things going on. So I decided to share some photos on here... every week, for you all to see.

This weekend as you may all know was my last few days off, from the week I took off. I spent the days relaxing and coming up with really exciting topics to blog about. 
That week I also got a chance to test out some Impress manicure nails and they looked absolutely amazing on. But speaking of amazing did you guys check out the new issue of Seventeen Magazine? It's a nice social media issue that doesn't just cover the glam life of it, it gets into the struggles also. I suggest you check it out and maybe even with a cup of hazelnut coffee in a Holiday theme mug.

Adidas Slides

Jacket: Forever21 | Top: Basic {old}  | Jeans: Target |  Sandals: Adidas Adilette {Drjays} | Necklace: Forever21 | Lipstick: MAC "Rebel"

I'm so happy to be back! If you didn't noticed I took a much needed week off to gather my thoughts and spend time with others. It might not sound like a lot but when your like me and you really put your time, heart and soul into your blog, you can sometimes forget that there is more to life other than thinking about yourself 24/7. But I did get a Drjays order in the mail and sharing these comfortable Adidas Adilette Sandals was the first thing on my list.
