Today marks a pretty special day for me as I am officially 3 weeks past my last chemo treatment! To explain the significance of “3 weeks”, my chemo regimen was every 3 weeks and it would usually take just about 3 weeks for my body to heal in between treatments. Which also meant by the time I started to feel a little more normal again, it was time for another treatment. BUT today is different since I have no more chemo!! :D :D :D When I was diagnosed 5 months ago, I couldn’t imagine going through all of this, nor did I think I even had the strength to.

With me being on medical leave for the past couple months, my days of dressing nice are few and far between. Nowadays you can find me sporting whatever is comfortable, whether it be my favorite pair of jeans, leggings, a soft flannel shirt, or a comfy tee. And while I could be sitting around in pajamas some days, my inner fashionista is still eager to wear something interesting! I actually long for the days where I have somewhere to go, someone to see, and an excuse to dress up. While I know I have bigger fish to fry at the moment, it’s nice to sometimes worry about the little things. Sometimes you just need to feel normal once in a while, you know? Continue reading
As I enjoy this time before my 4th and last chemo treatment next week, I’m faced with not only excitement, but also many worries and fears about my future. It may seem like things are finally “over”, but there’s still a laundry list of things I’ll need to deal with such as hormone treatments, residual side effects such as fatigue, and overall just trying to feel like myself again. I met with the doctor this week and went in thinking this would be an easy visit and that he would congratulate me on almost being done. Instead, I was asked a series of questions about the next steps in my treatment and left the office feeling more stressed than I needed to be. Continue reading
I can’t believe we are only days away from The Force Awakens, which means Star Wars all week! With the cold weather in full force, I’m so excited for the variety of Star Wars jackets that have been coming out, especially this BB-8 one! I wore this casually last weekend at The Force Awakens pin event in Hollywood and today I’m trying it out a little more dressed up. Get ready for lots of Star Wars this week!!
I wanted to take a quick mental break from Star Wars today to actually wear and enjoy some of the fun stuff I got from Black Friday shopping! Among the many things I purchased, I made sure to take full advantage the “$10 for all tees” sale at Hot Topic and picked up this vintage style Black Widow tee, even more appealing because of the ringer neck. I love it’s old school similarities to shirts I wore when I was a kid. And no matter how many skinny jeans I own, I still love an awesome flare pant, especially these corduroy ones (also on sale!). Paired together, I thought they were a fabulous and groovy outfit that could take me from a casual day of shopping to dinner and drinks with friends.
With my 2nd round of chemo over and a few spare outfit photos in my back pocket, it’s time to focus on other important things like The Force Awakens!! I can’t believe we’re less than 2 weeks! It seemed like just yesterday winter 2016 was not even within reach and now I can’t believe we’re almost here! Like myself, I’m sure you have all noticed the crazy amount of Star Wars merchandise out there – from Star Wars at Forever 21, to pajamas, and even cuff links . I mean, who knew I would ever own a pair of Darth Vader tights, right? Nowadays they’re making Star Wars everything from head to toe! Part of me is a little worried about the over saturation, but at the same time, I can’t help but buy everything! What do you guys think about the huge influx of merchandise?
When Hot Topic announced the Spring 2015 Marvel line designed by last year’s Her Universe Fashion Show winners, I immediately knew had to have a few of their pieces in my wardrobe. However, I completely regret not buying one piece – their Stark Industries jacket! I was so bummed that they sold out and prices were nearly double on eBay due to the popularity! I guess Hot Topic realized this because they finally announced this summer that they would be restocking those pieces. This time I made sure to pick one up right away and have been trying to get the most use out of it before the weather gets too cold! I love the vintage bomber style of this jacket and decided to pair it with a ’40s inspired midi skirt. If only I had some classic pin-up curls to go with this!
