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.

 


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.

Children’s books photoshopped with NSFW titles

What Moana taught me about trauma

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 34th birthday is in a few weeks, and I really need to get my shit together, er, meet some goals before I hit my mid-thirties. Oh god. How am I almost 34 and not 14?!

 

Me on my 14th birthday with two-thirds of my younger siblings. Hashtag resting bitch face 4LYFE.

 

I think this list is actually supposed to 36 things I’m going to do before I hit 35, but let’s be real, y’all — if I get 10 of these done, I’m going to be super proud of myself.

  1. Visit a city I’ve never been to before.
  2. Paint my living room (bonus points for bedroom and kitchen).
  3. Buy a new car.
  4. Start journaling again.
  5. Write more. (I’d like to get some of my writing published, but that’s more of a wish than a goal.)
  6. Get a bed frame and a new sheet/comforter set.
  7. Don’t give up on this blog!
  8. Work on my hand-lettering and calligraphy.
  9. Go back to school or whatever I need to do to begin my career change.
  10. End 34 healthier than I will be starting it.
  11. Get my wisdom teeth removed. (I know, I know, I should have done it like 15 years ago.)
  12. Grow a plant and don’t let it die.
  13. Actually finish five books I haven’t read before.
  14. Organize my closets, including…
  15. Donating or selling stuff I’m not going to ever wear again.
  16. Repierce my nostril.
  17. Get a new tattoo/fix the one on my leg.
  18. Start hiking and riding my bike again.
  19. Get more involved in the charities and groups that are important to me. Make activism a bigger part of my life.
  20. Do one thing that scares me — go on a plane, go to the top of a tall building, touch a tarantula… Something that gives me goosebumps just thinking about.
  21. Wear something that scares me, and not just in the house, but in public. I’m talking bikini, crop top, romper. And then document it here and on Instagram.
  22. Perfect my liquid eyeliner. Or attempt to.
  23. Build my savings account up by $1000+.
  24. Raise my credit score another 10 points.
  25. Maybe potentially possibly do the St Jude 5k?
  26. Take a train down to New Orleans.
  27. Make more things to sell on my Etsy.
  28. Continue to work on my mental and emotional health by finding a new therapist (my old one retired, wahhhh!), making sure I refill my meds on time, finding coping skills for my anxiety, and continuing to practice self love and positive thinking. (Even when I don’t wanna.)
  29. Start drawing and painting again.
  30. Look up local auditions for plays and maybe go audition (if I find a play I’m interested in).
  31. Put up shelves in my kitchen.
  32. Add more artwork to the collage wall in my living room.
  33. Donate to charity at least once a month.
  34. Stay frosty.

 

Wish me luck!

    • 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.

    • My first Christmas in my apartment (2016) vs this year. Still don’t think I have enough decorations though.
