It’s a hard life for us girls who are the life of the party. One day we’re on the moon, the next day you’re in the bed wishing the sun wasn’t so bright. It’s a painful crime, and a lesson that we must learn, once you’re drunk your drunk, stop drinking. So it’s time to wipe the mascara of your eyes and stop wondering who that guy is beside you and where your bra went and get ready to face the day. I’ve been there done that and have created a master plan to look amazing while your sobering up.
It never occurred to me before but, it seems as if my whole relationship can be summed up in one Taylor Swift song. She is the epitome of bad relationships. Album after album is basically her crying about break ups, which is why so many single ladies love her. Even if the teen queen lyrics sometimes make your skin crawl, you have to admit she knows what you’re going through.
It seems that no matter what you can’t stop time. Earlier this week it was my birthday and for some reason I can’t just wrap my mind around that. I guess its because I’ve never looked at my life pass 20, shame ain’t it?It’s weird though, I feel myself changing and evolving into the woman I am meant to be. I have had quite the interesting life, and have faced many obstacles. I may be young but I feel as if I am quite wise beyond my years.. I thought it’d be nice to share my experiences more or less life lessons with you.
Have you ever thought ‘Gee it’d be great to have a street view visual of my neighborhood as a rug!’ then your dreams just might come true today! Google Earth is now being made in to rugs as a part of a project by Dutch Designer Roosmarijn Pallandt entitled “Consider This Landscape A Territory” Each rug is basically a screenshot of a certain location, which is then printed and woven & knotted to mimic the natural terrain capturing the very essence of the image location. The rugs are actually made by hand by local people and as you can image takes months of research, each piece is custom made using only natural undyed fabric such as silk yak wool and eucalyptus.
Already produced in Thailand & Portugal this project is set to expand to places such as Japan, Peru and parts of Afri
ca and hopefully world wide!
Its hard to tell where any relationship is going now days. Even though things seem fine, you some times find yourself asking “is this as good as we’re going to get or is there more? ” I know I think about it constantly but there is a way to know.
When I look at my wardrobe, I hardly become inspired to get dressed, Everyday I see more and more clothes that I don’t wear,and I don’t have the desire to wear anymore. It gets depressing when you sit in your closet for half an hour wondering what you should wear and the only thing you can think of are those pair of jeans you’ve worn three days in a row now and a T-shirt. Today I’ve finally had enough of all that and trying to shop for more clothes and they end up getting lost in the crowd of hated clothes and things never worn. So I figured, maybe if I cleaned out what I don’t like, I’ll see what I do like and I can stop living in the world of make believe and realize I have plenty of clothes of which I do actually like.
If you’ve been dying to clean out your closet, let us help! It can be a daunting task but I promise it’s worth it!

When you’re younger, like 21-24 you’re always told you have plenty of time to find the one. It doesn’t matter what type of feelings you have for them it’s always “you have time you don’t need to settle down, get your life together than find what you want.” While that’s all fine and good, what if you find someone you want to spend the rest of your life with? What if they support you and allow you to do your whole career thing? Continue reading
In my life I’ve learned two things, don’t take life to seriously and if it’s not meant to happen it’s not meant to happen. Both these lessons were learned in one summer.I was young and just enjoying life, I was fresh out of college and had nothing to do. Everyone split after collage so I was kind of on my own. There was a guy I had met at a party while I was in college. Of course I was pretty drunk though so I’m not really quiet sure how he got my number, but he had it. So one day we went out for coffee, nothing huge. We hit it off ok. As far as the relaxing and hanging out part of the relationship we pretty much got it. Continue reading
It’s so strange to that people think that you can have a real friendship with someone you had sex with. I’m not saying that it’s impossible, but it’s damn near hard. I was having a discussion with one of my friends about this, is it ever possible to have sex and remain friends after? She, of course, thinks that it’s completely reasonable. Continue reading

I have no idea what I want to do with my life. There I said it. It has been set in my mind that I have to have a set goal and achieve it. But I have no clue what I want to do with my life. Curse my indecisiveness! It worries me, like what will happen if I don’t figure it out? Will I become a bum? A prostitute? Or worse, a disappointment? I like a lot of things but when it comes to my career or even just an idea of what I want to do I draw a blank. Continue reading
I’m easily fascinated by personality types and people’s spirits. The spirit that a person has speaks greatly about them. I first heard about it through a friend when she had taken the test and it sparked so much curiosity. I just love taking quizzes and finding out more about my self. I took a quiz on spiritanimal.info, apparently I’m a humming bird. I’m joyful and playful and very free spirited. Pretty much sums me up. Discover your spirit animal here.

Recently, I’ve been on the brink of serious depression. I haven’t been the happiest of person’s, the littlest thing would just irritate me for hours til the point of no reason! I can’t begin to tell you how many packs of Newport’s I went through just to try to calm myself down. I would lay in bed thinking about what I was going to do, how was I going to pay for my bills? What am I doing with my life? What if I never get out of this rut? I didn’t have an answer for any of those questions it broke me this happened for three nights in a row.
One night I attempted to rest my eyes and again those negative thoughts started flooding my mind, they ran so deep that I literally felt my heart hurt. Yet I continued to lay there and let those thoughts flood my mind. even when I tried to think positive and tell myself it would work out the thoughts over powered me and just kept haunting me. Finally, after laying there til 4 am I just got tired of living my life in a constant state of fear and I said the words that sounded as if the clouds opened and God himself came down. “Fuck it” Those two little words seemed to mute the voices. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let this little funk get to me, and instead of worrying about what may happen I made things happen. I decided to make my problems in to solutions and really, just enjoy my life.
I know I’m not the only one going through it, so I decided to make a list of things that I am going to do from now on so I can enjoy the official start of my 20’s (since my 21st birthday is next monday!).
- Buy the shoes
Every time I went shopping I would see something I love but I would never get it. Why? Because I work part time and I never know if my paycheck will cover my bills. Although it typically does (9 times out of 10) I’d be freaked to buy them even if they were on sell. So I decided, I won’t be reckless, but I’m going to get the d-mn shoes if I love them.
- Get out more
- Indulge in my creative side
- Explore everything
- Smile, laugh, and stay positive
Let’s just say that didn’t happen. When I did blossom (my last year in high school) I was still a little shy about really showing who I was. I tried so hard to dress how I wanted to dress but still “fit in” and not to be to out there(yes I cared what people thought). When I went off to college I still wanted to seem “cool” shopping at stores I didn’t really care for (like stores in the mall) spending money on things that I liked but didn’t love. Believe it or not I started my blog in college during all this, I was really inspired by a blog called young, fat, and fabulous I saw her style blog and was like “I can do that” so fa la la la here we are. But I still was like, this doesn’t feel right so I still posted and realized I had a ton of other issues to deal with, it was my confidence.
People would tell me all the time how I was pretty but those words really don’t mean much if you don’t feel it yourself. So then I started a campaign called Love YOU not your body (back when this was called My Pretty Little Look Book) it was half for me and half for everyone who ever felt like I don’t know what’s wrong with me. After doing the first steps I instantly felt better and I grew to actually like myself. And that’s great but I couldn’t show off my confidence (being broke puts a damper on things). But after I my confidence boost I moved out of the city back home and got sad just because I felt I was wasting life. I had a job I hated and was still broke as hell, so around December I something ticked and I was like I gotta do this, this, and this. So I quit from the job I hated and got one that I LOVE and got a kick ass car. The more I grew personally the better I felt about me, the less I had I felt I needed an persona to show of a side of me like I am me(if you’ve been with me from the beginning you know how many names I’ve had lol). I actually would go out in public and would get mad if someone called me my actual name, I signed my name as my persona I introduced myself as my person that was me. Not any more.
Now since I have the confidence and the money I finally started wearing and acting like I wanted to. Then actually it was a few days ago I felt at home in my clothes. If you follow my instagram (KimberlyLove_) you saw those seriously ripped pants I had on a few days back. I wore them with a pair of combat boots and a tiny black cami, and sweety I live in the bible belt you don’t see to many people walking around looking like that, so when I came through I got stares even a few laughs. I started feeling myself going back then I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror in one of the stores and was like “I look so cool” and suddenly I was like this is IT this is what I love. And every since then I’ve been wearing these boots every where (except work). I feel like I should have been dressing like this all along I love my dark make up I love the boots, I love wearing black, and I love wearing almost nothing but boots or even covering up (like today). I don’t feel like I need to be perfect or even the prettiest girl in the room I just gotta be me. I writing this for anyone who was in my situation or currently going through it. It does get better you will start to feel at home in your body if you just Embrace your Ugly, Embrace who you are. If you feel like you should be a girl or a guy or your rocker not prep even if you’re not that stylish but you love your style. Just be you, you’re going to find your way one day. It won’t be easy, there’s going to be a lot of tears but at the end it’s worth it. Just remember life is a journey not a destination.
I love decorating, not so much of moving the furniture around but the designing the wall space of an area. To me it really creates a mood and an atmosphere that can be either really calming or really hectic if you let it. Me, I like a calming atmosphere when I walk in to my house I like to be able to come in and relax, unwind from a tiresome world. This is my envision for my apartment I will soon be getting, I want a very Carrie Bradshaw goes to London and meets a crazy factory girl in a spa feel if you get my drift ;-). Any ways I’m really in to turquoise, white, teal, and gray that’s my whole palette because those are my favorite colors! Here are a few images that I had in mind.
