an explanation.

so in my last post i talked about how crazy things have been with me of late. and let me tell you, the sure have...to the point where i've been really lost. its not like i'm super busy, that's not it. actually i've spent most of my time watching day-time talk shows and eating peanut butter and honey sandwiches. this might sounds absolutely insane to some, but its true. i think i've just been 'stuck'. you know those kids-senior year in highschool and they have absolutely no clue what they want to do with their life. should i go to school? do i even want to go to school? should i get a job? should i travel? you know super indecisive. i was never that kid. i always knew what i wanted, where i was going, what i was going to do. i knew BEFORE i got to high school, before middle school even. i didn't know exactly what school, but i knew i was going to college and that i wanted to study art. and then i did. i graduated- with honors, got a job, a boyfriend and was paying back my loans on time. i was good. i did everything i was supposed to. and i did it in a timely manner. and then my mom got sick. and then she died. and then i quit my job. and then my boyfriend broke up with me. and then i couldn't pay back my loans.

and here i am...that senior in high school that doesn't know what they want, or where they want to be in life. and it sucks. it sucks so fucking hard.

i've been wanting to go back to school for a very long time. but with everything else that's been happening, i just threw it on the back of the burner and focused on other things. i got another boyfriend...and then he broke up with me too. and now i'm back to figuring out what to do. but i think i've finally figured my shit out. i'm going to focus on me for a while. i'm going to be the main focus of my story for alittle while. i'm going to go back to school for graphic design and i might even move out of my dad's house. yep, i'm going to attempt to be a big girl finally.

of course i'm still going to work on order & chaos, i'm so in love with it. i'm still going to do my art and still going to do festivals, when i can. but i'm going to try and do something with my life again instead of wasting time in front of the tv, crying about a boy and not bettering myself for the future. if i don't, no one else is going to. so i have to make the move. and i'm going to.

a vanishing act.

hey everybody. sorry i've been so absent recently. i've been trying to find a balance within my life the last few weeks. things keep changing so very drastically with my world lately and i've been struggling with it. i can't seem to find that middle ground of my personal life, my internet life, and my career. and as far as my career goes, i don't know where its going at this point. my internet life-i've been ignoring and that sucks. my personal life is just all kinds of topsy-turvey and its been just a whirlwind of insanity. so please stick with me, as soon as i get things smoothed out, i'll be back. i know some of you have emailed me in the past week or two and i'm trying to get to then, i promise i will soon! please stay patient. i just wanted to let you know whats been happening and that i'm still here, just not exactly here. ya know. i'll be back though.

green bubble gorgeous- review

last weekend, when i went to the i made it! market holiday event i had the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies of green bubble gorgeous as i was walking around snapping photos! they generously gave me a sample of their chap stick. i chose the butter rum flavor.

i instantly fell in love with this product! i'm a huge fan of chap stick, or lip gloss (if its not to chunky). i'm also very picky with the products that i use. green bubble gorgeous' products are "All natural and organic ingredients, 100% recycled/100% post consumer made shipping materials! Biodegradable and recyclable/refillable packaging"

this stuff is sooo smooth and great smelling! the butter rum flavor smells amazing! beyond that, probably my favorite part, this stuff last on your lips for a very very long time! so you don't have to keep reapplying it, which means that it last much longer than the usual chap stick!

i love that its natural and organic with free trade products. in addition they're from pittsburgh-which in my book makes them all the better!! i highly, highly, highly suggest you guys go and check them out and also buy some of their products, especially this chap stick! i'm in love with it! i've been telling all my girl friends. and i can't wait to try some of their other stuff when i get some money!

 support local and organic businesses!

here's a few of their other products! check it out!

how yummy do all of those look?! and yes, those last two photos are soaps!! wow, right? love it

x-mas/birthday wishlist

its that time of year folks! the holidays are fast approaching. this year i'm not able to afford any of the neato things that are on sale or even to buy my friends or my darling nice presents :(
BUT i am making them their gifts. and with the holidays just around the corner, i can't help but window shop a bit for myself. and on top of this, my birthday is right after christmas. yep, 5 days after. with this being said, the older i get, the more inclined my family is to smoosh my christmas and birthday gifts together into one. i'm ok with it the older i get. so i figure i should just combine them myself. and show you guys some of things i've been dreaming about of late!!
