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 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.

Some Instagram Photos Printed with Printstagram

print 2 print 1 print 3

With the idea in mined of wanting to redecorate and make my office more blog and video friendly, I was brainstorming some ideas to make all of that possible because I feel like it's been talked/thought about so much and nothing has really been done to make my vision a reality. I do have a picture on my desk that I got printed a while back from my Instagram account using Printstagram. I don't know why I never made a blog post on the photos I got printed or even about the website I used. I know I mentioned it on Twitter and Instagram but for the blog nothing was said. 

That being said, now is the time Printstagram (now called Social Print Studio) needs its time to shine. Because all I can remember about the experience is everything positive and being human usually you will remember at least something that didn't go the way you liked or expected. But in this case I'm still really in love with the site and the experience I had shopping through them. 

Back when I ordered Printstagram was still very new and really only has 3 to 4 options to choose from... give or take. Also remember getting Instagram pictures printed from your account was also very new and know one really talked about it and the selected few really kept the printing sites and process a secret like it was golden. So I completely had to try a site for myself and really get my own opinion and experience. 

I decided to go with the Square Prints because in my head it was between them and the Mini Square Prints but the Mini gave you way more prints for the price and at that time I didn't have 48 photos worth printing. So Square Prints was just right with 24 prints per set. But now looking at the site there is way way way more options to choose from.

The options I've been looking at now are Photostrips, Minibooks and the Large Format and once I get the photos I am pleased with, they will definitely get printed with Printstagram . Also a little bonus, shipping is super duper fast and if I'm not mistaken the prints came from Overseas but there HQ is in my Hometown of San Francisco.

PS: I hope this little info/experience helped you out and if you do order from Printstagram (Social Print Studio) let me know what you think.

Grunge Child

Blazer: Torrid | Top: Forever21 | Shorts: Forever21 (used to be Jeans) | Tights: Forever21 | Shoes: Nike | Hat: Forever21 | Sunglasses: Garage Sale | Lips: Cailyn Art Touch tinted lip gloss "Love Affair" 

I am so over summer and can't wait for autumn/fall. Fall has to be hands down my most favorite season; due to the style , hot trends and temperatures. I love the grungier look, but being a kid who grew up in the 90's, it just comes easy. I sometimes like to dress up the style a bit... LOL, yeah dressing up grunge sounds classy, huh? That's the San Francisco city kid in me ❤️

PS: What's your favorite fall style or hot trend?
