Four Eyes

I do not like wearing my glasses in public. I am all for the “hot librarian” look but not for me. For the longest time, I have been nagging about getting contact lens but my lazy ass has not gone to the optometrist (I had to look up what an eye doctor is called. Don’t judge me). My eyesight is not that bad. I can function without glasses. For me wearing glasses is like watching a movie and switching from 480p to 1080p HD. I would rather watch the movie in HD but the regular quality still works. Did that make sense? Anyways, how are you guys? I hope you had a wonderful christmas and you are enjoying the holiday season!

"Life is tough, my darling but so are you"

I got today's title from a quote I saw on Instagram. Not sure why but it put a smile on my face. Some tend to go through life without knowing their worth and strength. When obstacles are thrown your way and you might feel overwhelmed, never forget you are strong. I like to believe one of the reasons life can be difficult is to push you to be better. When you are feeling down or defeated, pat yourself on the back and know you are one tough cookie.

Feyi's Updates, Fun Finds & Favorites #3

It's been a while since I have written a post that wasn’t an outfit of the day. It is nice to go back to the “older” ways of blogging. Okay! So what have I been up to? Well… I just finished my first semester of my senior year. I am currently on winter break. I graduate in the fall of next year so I am not freaking out about graduating or entering the “adult world” right now. The end of this semester also means the end of my term as Editor-in-chief for my school’s magazine. I am extremely happy with the way the two issues turned out. I couldn’t have done it without my amazing staff. On another note, something I have been avoiding is talking about the election and president-elect Donald Trump. It has been over a month since he won and I still can not believe it. I think my brain is still processing that someone that has openly been negative to almost very minority group in America is going to be the next U.S. president. The next 4 years are going to be eventful. I just hope that he does not cause a bigger divide in America than the one that already exists. There is so much hate going around and this world needs more positive vibes. Anyways, enough about politics lets get to the fun stuff!

I have been wearing these pieces nonstop. It is a lot colder, so I am not wearing the jacket as much as I used to. Although for the longest time, I didn’t leave the house without it on. My sneakers have become a staple in my closest. They go with almost everything. The only problem is that they get dirty really easily. I got this pair from ASOS for only $20! My all-time favorite for this season will have to be my robe. It was one of myTarget impulse buys but I do not regret a thing. It is extremely fluffy and doubles as a blanket.

I do not want to give anything away so all I will say is, I am obsessed with these shows. Nothing makes me happier than an amazing plot and strong characters that are a little flawed. When a main character is too perfect, I can not relate. These shows are incredible in different ways. Everyone needs to watch them!

Long Live The Bomber Jacket?

The Bomber Jacket. I had my doubts when it first came on the scene. For the longest time I thought it was going to be a trend and like most trends do, go out of style. To my surprise, it is still going strong and on display in every retail store. The bomber jacket as always been around. It was first created for military use. Bomber jackets were worn by pilots in the US Air Force hence the name bomber jacket. Fashion is constantly drawing inspiration from military attire such as combat boots, camo print, aviators and so much more. Mainstream fashion recently added bomber jackets to the list of “borrowed ideas”. Now, that this style of jacket is part of popular culture it will be cool to see if the bomber jacket will move from a trend to a closet staple. What do you think?
