{Brave Wednesday.}

So I know I promised my return last Saturday, but I got stressed, tired AND sick, so blogging got the back-burner treatment once again. However, now that I am slowly feeling better, but I have absolutely no energy to do anything else, here it sit, blogging.

 As I am sure you know by now (seriously, I'd be sick of myself by now), I working my way out of my self-consciousness and making my self feel beautiful and like myself again. So, on a day when I received horrible treatment from who I thought was my best friend, I forced myself to get out of the house (and my self-pity) and have a good day.
      Now, the mall used to be my least favorite place to be, but I got brave and went by myself. Yup, you read that right. I am the type of person who loves to stuff with people not by myself, and I sometimes need another person to bounce feelings, ideas, and impulsive buys off of. But, I told myself I would have fun and I learned two key things.

gorgeous skirt at Charotte Russe.
Numbah 1. Shopping by yourself can be hard. I am the type of person who second guesses almost anything, so when you're by yourself, you don't have that extra person to ask,"Does this look okay?" or "I'm not even sure I like it.. Whabout you?"
Sweater dresses are a MUST for my wardrobe.
However, after I got used to this, I rather liked it. It got me to try on crazy things I wouldn't even look at with friends (and I ended up liking them), and I made my own decisions without using someone else as the excuse for why I didn't buy them.

crazy, STUDDED shoes that only came
 IN MY SIZE. (I didn't not buy them however,
due to their complete impractical-ness.)
 Numero Dos. Being on a mall date with yourself, can in fact, be fun. At first you compare yourself to the cut couples and the girls that looked like the stepped off of a magazine cover, but once you get in the groove of I-am-going-to-be-happy-and-try-on-anything-while-jamming-out-to-One-Direction (yes, One Direction) mood, you have fun. 
       Aaand, I felt incredibly secure in my own skin, and weirdly, I also felt beautiful.
       Shopping-1, Staying-At-Home-0.
my love for peacocks has gone too far.

my inner diva wants this needs this.
 I am going to add in a bonus life-lesson here, and say, Sephora's is an incredibly dangerous place to be when your by yourself. You want EVERYTHING. Trust me. Even the most insensible color of lipstick calls your name.

There. Extra bonus, done.
next lip color, I will own you soooon.

next fragrance purchase? i think yes! 
 I have decided that I am going to have a weekly date with myself. Whether that be at the mall, coffee shop, book store, or a movie, I can't wait to have my own mini-adventures. :) So, be on the look out for "Brave Wednesday" posts <3

all my love,

I will end with this. He is very secure with himself.
