FFs is my semi-weekly post of things I’ve found, I’ve loved, I’ve bought, I’ve wanted to buy… Basically my wish/read/look/love list.

Alyssa Moore: Survivor
[TW: Graphic details of abuse, suicide]
You may have heard about an event that was broadcast on Facebook live that happened in Memphis this past May. What you may not have heard about what the ongoing abuse and terror Alyssa experienced at the hands of her now-deceased ex, how Memphis police dropped the ball repeatedly to keep her safe (MPD has a history of dismissing women and other victims, sadly), and how Alyssa has turned her own pain into power. I don’t know her personally, but my brother Walt does and is very involved in the music scene here. Unfortunately, time and time again, we have to be reminded that mental illness does not excuse abuse, and good behaviors or talent in a person does not mean we should ignore their violence.

Chevy Spark
I am in desperate need of a new car, and I am kind of obsessed with the mint Chevy Spark right now. Eeek! It’s so cute! Plus it has a good rating!


Do Your Best Pendant — $24
I also really like the “Bullshit” mini-pendant, but it’s sold out. 🙁


Tier Me Roar jacket — $69.99
How stinking cute is this jacket?? (Yes, I’m aware that it’s currently hotter than the center of the sun in Memphis, but I’m ready for autumn!)


First Date Ultra Matte Lip Set — $18
I’m always looking for good liquid lipsticks, but it’s hard to find colors that work well both with my skin tone (porcelain with very pink undertones) and tiny mouth. I love these colors, and the small size are great for trying out a color before making a splurge.

You’re not lazy, you’re just terrified

Before You Know It, Something’s Over
About the author’s struggle with her father’s death. Long, but good read, especially if you’ve lost a parent. I spent Monday morning hunched over my desk, crying like I haven’t in a long time. (My mother died seven years ago.)

I dressed like my skinny best friend for a week to prove style has no size

22 Tumblr Posts That Went Downhill Real Quick

Have a great weekend and tell me what you’re reading and loving in the comments!

 

My first Friday Finds Fawns & Foxes post! (Yay, alliteration!) FFs is my semi-weekly post of things I’ve found, I’ve loved, I’ve bought, I’ve wanted to buy… Basically my wish/read/look/love list.


I know I’m late to the party, but I just got my first Stitch Fix. GAH. They really did send things that absolutely fit me. One item in particular had me almost jumping up and down. I’ll post what I kept soon, but for now you can view the unboxing video on my instagram. It’s $20 for a fix, and that $20 goes towards any items you decide to buy. They send you a pre-stamped envelope to send what you don’t want back in, which makes it SO simple. Seriously, go check it out.


Sourpuss Tattoo Roses Line Dance Dress — $61
I may have possibly purchased this for my birthday… (I did.)

Look at this adorable pink house!


Glitter Seashell Bag — $50
Y’all. This. Bag. TBH, the whole store needs to be in my closet NOW.

    • I don’t have super any recent pics, so here’s a drunken selfie of me from a few weeks ago to go along with this absolutely irrelevant chain of text. I’ve also turned off comments because I don’t want pity or sympathy or advice. I just want to purge my feelings. I haven’t posted much in awhile because I’m not happy. I haven’t liked myself in awhile, and January and February have never been good months for me. I’ve been really self-critical and sad and isolating myself from the world when I’m not working. I know logically that this depressive period will end, but that doesn’t mean it hurts less or doesn’t feel unending. I’ll probably feel ashamed by tomorrow and delete this post, but don’t forget your “gone” friends. They may be hiding from the gray skies right now, but they will bloom again when the sun returns.
    • Work party last night! And snow! ❤️❄️ I hate that I didn’t pics of everyone.

    • 2009 vs now. Me then: “I won’t be happy until I’m skinny!” Naw, girl, you won’t be happy until you quit accepting shitty behavior in relationships, get your meds straight, go to therapy, and focus on yourself. I may have gained weight and gone through some real shit, but things are so much better now.

    • 2018 was my “get shit done” year. I’ve focused on my career, my home, and doing things I’ve needed to do for years. I’ve gone back to therapy, took a year off from dating, and have tried to stay on top of my health, both mentally and physically. I hope that 2019 will continue in this vein, and be the year I worked towards finding my own happiness. I finally feel like I deserve that.

    • My coworker said I looked like a rich bitch after I put on my coat, but my outfit is totally Target except for my boots. But if you pronounce it “Tar-jay,” we can pretend I paid hundreds of dollars for this look.
