happy America day

It’s that time again. “That time” that happens to be one of my favorite holidays the entire year. Who doesn’t love a nice summer day outside with friends and family? Or at least that’s usually how my Independence Day celebrations go. AND a big welcome to the nice cold front that came through this morning. It feels like fall outside and I feel like I’m dreaming. But whatever, summer is still my favorite season, even when I’m fanning myself with palm tree leaves. Is that what you call palm tree leaves? Leaves? That sounds weird. I feel like palm trees should have their own term outside of all other trees. Anyways.. Back to America. I hope everyone has a day full of family and pool time and grilling out and all that comes in between. Treat yourself to good ole American ice cream cone with red, white & blue sprinkles.

New post coming about my new name next!

don’t forget to wear sunscreen.

Today was good, great actually. I’ve been in such a great mood these last few days; and I have no idea why. You know when you kinda get caught up in all of the things (big and small) that make up your life? Well that’s exactly what has happened to me lately; and I’m finally getting past it. When things start to get busy, I just kinda shut down and start procrastinating, which is really saying something because I procrastinate on like a normal day. Anyways, I have been diving back into all of the “mallory” things such as my music and blogging and everything in between. I’ve gotten to this point where I love being around people constantly, which is foreign to me in a way because I used to love my alone time. But over the last year, I have willingly sacrificed my seclusion from anyone and everything. The only problem is that I used to blog and write music and work on my shop all in my seclusion. I am pretty independent when it comes to all of this. So, now that I have realized all of these things about myself, I am learning to balance my time with friends and let in a little more time to myself, like right now for instance. I mean I’m not alone, you’re here too.

In other news, I recently got back from some time in California. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen some of my photos, but I have so many more to share in the next few days. I miss the soft sunsets, flying cyclists, sandy streets, and windy mountains a lot now that I am back. Hopefully, I will call that place home in the next little bit. I also miss Disney Land because I tend to leave my heart in happy places like that.

I ran this morning, still haven’t showered. Then, I went walking on a trail with friends, still haven’t showered. Then, we played tennis, still haven’t showered. And then I did Pilates. Such an active day. Ha. But yeah, I need to shower now.

And with that I will leave you. Go enjoy your Saturday night babes.

Hey guyssss. It has been quite a while since I last posted. Well only a month, but still. What a crazy whirlwind it has been ever since the beginning of February. It all started when my laptop decided to go mental on me. My laptop that has all of my pictures and other blog content. Just to clarify. I’m not going to lie, I have cried a few too many times laying on the floor holding my beloved MacBook in my hands begging it to magically come back to life.

And that’s pretty much where the story begins. I won’t bore you with the entire thing, but basically my laptop is still in the shop, that is the Apple Store. It has pretty much lived there ever since I last posted. For all of you apple geniuses out there, the problem was originally just the RAM. Then, they decided it was also the logic board. Well I now have been through multiple new RAM banks and a lovely new logic board, but it still freezes and beeps. It did work for like a week, but I had the stomach flu. Literally my life is a joke.

Anyways, I go back to the Apple Store tomorrow, hopefully for the last time. I’m pretty sure they are more sick of me than any other returning customer. Honestly, I’ve lost count. If anyone has had similar problems or is an Apple genius with loads of helpful knowledge, please hit me up.

I pulled out these pics to post again because I do not have access to my new material, including my lookbook for my first youtube video. But soon enough we will all see it! Hopefully like tomorrow soon. Until then, have a wonderful day. I know you will because it’s almost the WEEKEND.

It’s tempting to start this post out by saying “I’m backkkkkk,” but I feel like I did that last time and “continue bad habits” is clearly not on the above list. With that being said, I am back and so happy for this new month. January was a whirlwind of getting back into the swing of things. Winter break came to an end, which means seeing my best friends every day also came to a sad halt. I’ve never liked January, mainly because I hate the cold, Christmas and the holidays are over, classes start again, and did I mention I hate the cold? So, cheers to February, I am already in love with you.

On the first day of the month (yesterday), I accomplished a lot of things I had put on my list recently and not so recently. It is a great feeling to just do whatever it is you’re saying you need to do. Just do it. Don’t sit around and think about it when you could be accomplishing it. I’ve decided to make a list of pretty general goals that I would like to achieve during February and I encourage you to do the same. I’d love to see what is on your mind and to-do list.

Now, I’ll stop talking so you can go watch the Super Bowl and make your February bucket list. Hope you have had a great start to the week and month!

Hello, hello to you on this lovely January day. How crazy is it that 2013 has come to a close? I didn’t want it to end! 2013 was incredible, but I’m sure 2014 has even more in store. I don’t really like the whole ‘new year, new you’ thing. I do love the idea of creating goals and resolutions, but I do that more on my birthday. So technically speaking, my year isn’t even half way finished yet (woo, July birthday). I do love being 21, what can I say?

So, I do have some exciting news. I FINALLY got a new camera that has got me over the moon excited about what is to come with this little world I have created here. It is definitely an upgrade from my Sony DSLR and I won’t have to borrow my Dad’s super fancy Nikon anymore. I’m already in love with it. My entire life since Christmas day has been recorded on it through several pictures and videos. Just wait, just waittttt.

I shot these photos with my Dad’s Nikon which I am rather obsessed with also. I love a little leather and black and white mixed together. I actually bought this skirt in Paris this summer after hunting for it. You can wear it with a lot of different tops, just like this amazing vintage looking jacket. And let’s not forget my studded heels. Honestly, I fell in love with these so fast when I first saw them. I don’t even know why because I don’t have a ton of occasions to wear them, but I love white and I love studs so yeah, I got them. No regrets here!

I hope you guys have all had a lovely holiday season so far. I might post some photos from my own holidays with family and friends, we’ll see. I really cannot explain in words how excited I am for all that is to come in the next few months with this blog. It’s so amazing when you tap into your little world and create new things and meet lovely people like all of you. YAY for blogging.

Well, I won’t take up anymore of your time. I am going to start posting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from now on. I need a schedule and this is my way of making if official. And guess what, it’s WEDNESDAY.

What all did YOU do for the holidays?
