a pile of randoms.

five things you should know:

1. a spray bottle cures everything. especially wrinkles when traveling. but heck, we use it for wrinkles even when we're not traveling.
2. i have no self control when it comes to tortilla chips with a hint of lime. none, i tell you.
3. if you haven't worn something in over a year, it's time to get rid of it. no "but, i know i'll wear it..."- you won't. this is extremely hard for me. i swear my closet just got ten pounds lighter.
4. humidity is your best friend and your worst enemy. friend: dewey and moisturized skin, especially after coming home from italy and realizing just how dry it is here. enemy: sweating constantly making you feel ugly as your clothes stick to you reminding you that the heat is a bit too much.
5. life should be lived reading. books are full of more than just stories. read, read read. it changes your life.

let's hear something i should know. come on- tell me something good.

oh yeah, one last thing: i have red hair, just in case you forgot;
because to be honest, sometimes i forget until i look in the mirror. 
life is full of randoms, but that's what makes it good. 


  1. I think you should also know that family is EVERYTHING (but I'm pretty sure you know that already!!) Also that dry shampoo just may be the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously.

  2. great pile of tips! thanks for sharing!

    do you want to follow each other (on bloglovin' and gfc)? let me know!
    see you around!

  3. I think you should know that iced coffee is the best way to start a stifling Monday morning.

    And that the week before a beach weekend is the longest but also the most anticipated of the whole summer. It's like you smell the salt water at your desk all week.

    (These are the things I'm living today.)


  4. I'm with you on the whole thing about not having worn something in a year. I actually give myself six months though...b/c if I don't...I'll never get rid of it. Ugh...I love clothes.

  5. Tortilla chips with lime are the best! I just finished a terrible book. Are you on Goodreads? I need a recommendation for what to read next.

  6. getting rid of clothes is the hardest thing!! I feel like a pack rat or hoarder sometimes. I'll be doin' a lot of closet cleaning soon though! Yikes!
    1 thing you should are great. that is all. :)

  7. first of all, you are GORGEOUS. second, i'm with you on the clothes part... i got rid of some skirts yesterday and i about died.

  8. Haha you are so right about the clothes! I don't know why it is so hard to get rid of clothes that havent been worn in years.

    I love your hair. Red is my favorite hair color.

  9. You, my friend, are very wise!

    All of these are so true! (sweating really IS awful and reading IS the best!)

    Red is totally your colour!

    I will look forward to reading more! Love your newest follower,

  10. Dry shampoo is amazing!! And I am totally that person who hasn't worn something in a year, but I refuse to get rid of it!!! I just can't let go!!

  11. LOVE the red hair. and something you should know, smoothies are better than energy drinks, anyday.

  12. Totally agree. About the humidity. And the books. And most likely the tortilla chips with lime (though I have yet to try this). Love the red hair!

  13. I think I need to write an ode to a spray bottle one of these days. That thing seriously saves my life! As for reading, I hope to get back to that once my little is a little grown. His busy hands make reading a much beloved pastime for now.

  14. Haha, I feel you about the tortilla chips. I'm horrible and unstoppable when I start eating it.
    And about the #5 - word!
