This is Olivia. We go way back. Our friendship began in Park City, Utah, when I was 5. My parents took me and my sister (this is before my brother was born) to a toy store and we each picked out a stuffed animal. Wolves were my favorite animal at the time, so of course… Read more »

My completely irrational fear

I think everyone has some sort of irrational fear, like fear of heights or spiders or clowns. I have no idea how these fears originate because they’re mostly baseless; for instance, I loved clowns until I reached a certain age when suddenly they became the creepiest beings ever. But that’s not the fear I want… Read more »

No words.

I rescheduled my posts for today and will be publishing them next Tuesday instead. I just didn’t feel right posting lighthearted things in light of the tragic news from yesterday about Robin Williams passing away. Depression is a debilitating and devastating disease that suffers must fight against on a daily basis. It should not be… Read more »

Story Time: The Absolute WORST Date

I’ve written about quite a few dates that Ilhan and I have gone on (like this one and this one), so I thought I’d share a different kind of story today: the worst date I’ve ever been on. It’s a hilarious story to reflect on and I don’t really talk about anything from before I… Read more »

I get really scared of the dark (lol), so I don’t like… Read more »

I had a paranormal experience.

So this past weekend, Ilhan and I went on a ghost tour with my sister and her boyfriend in Old Town San Diego. You read the title of this post right…I had a paranormal experience, and it happened on this tour. And I couldn’t not tell you guys about it! I’m going to try to… Read more »

Love languages and why they’re important

Have you ever taken this test to find out your love language? If not, take a moment to do so. I recently took this test and felt surprisingly enlightened about myself. Although I had already known my love language is gifts (because it’s just obvious to me haha), I had felt kind of weird actually… Read more »

Thoughts on OOTDs & selfies

via. Confession: I love fashion blogs. Although I am far too lazy to actually compose outfits and photograph them at the frequency that a proper fashion blog requires, I wish doing so was more “me.” I love dressing up and feeling pretty and there’s something about that that I want to share; it’s such a… Read more »
