I'M GONNA ADULT TODAY // OOTD


Last year I made a post about everything that was on my 2014 Christmas list, so I thought I'd keep the tradition up and make one for 2015. This list is a lot more chilled out than the last and caters to things that I feel would help me in this venture I'm trying to pursue as a blogger (and maybe a few extra things I don't need, but have absolutely no self control and couldn't help but add them in....) Oops! 

MY CHRISTMAS WISHLIST 2015


As of late, I've been getting super in to makeup and trying to slowly build up my collection. As I was scrounging through instagram I came across a makeup company called Bdellium Tools. I had never heard of them up until that day and what really drew me to them was the fact that not only where they a local company, but they offered a selection of vegan makeup brushes that looked incredible. All their brushes are handmade and even from online you could see that the quality was impeccable. I even remember tweeting about the company and getting tweets back from other bloggers about how great they were. So, when I was told I would be getting the chance to try out some of their lippies I was obviously ecstatic! If their brushes looked that great, their lip crayons shouldn't be anything short of amazing too, right?

Seeing as Thanksgiving is next week (honestly, where has time gone?!) I thought now would be a good time to put out a gift guide for all you boyfriends, girlfriends, brothers and dads who find yourself struggling in the gift department during Christmas time.

ALL THRIFTED ERRRTHANG // DENIM ON DENIM OOTD

I hadn't initially planned to put up a post tonight, but as I was scrolling through my youtube subscriptions, I came across a video uploaded by Buzzfeed called "I Survived A Suicide Attempt". Buzzfeed has a following of over 5 million on youtube and to know that people with such a huge platform are using it to inform and share their own personal struggles in regards to mental illnesses and suicide warms my heart like no other.

The video was done tastefully, but they were still able to get the message they wanted to across. For those of you who aren't subscribed to them or just wouldn't have found yourself coming across the video yourself, I wanted to share it with you all here as I believe its a must watch.



Chances are none of the people who took part in the making of this video will never come across this post, but I still wanted to thank you. Thank you for reliving such a troubling chapter in your life in hopes that your story may help at least one person. Thank you for being open and honest. Most of all, thank you for continuing on even when you believed you couldn't any longer. The strength you all hold is incredibly inspiring.

"Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem."

For those of you currently struggling with thoughts of suicide or may have even attempted, please know that the place you're in right now - it's not forever. Work through it. No matter how hard and no matter how much you stumble through the process, grasp on to that happiness you deserve. Those 4 people you saw above are only a few of so many that are living proof life is worth living even through your darkest times. I believe you and I believe in you. 

Sending you all my love, 
K xo
