Daily writing prompt: Describe an outfit that makes you feel good. (It can be from any period of your life.) Double points if you post a picture of yourself in the outfit.

This outfit is so typical of my style. I would have to say it’s one of my favorites because it combines unlikely patterns and textures and is not uber feminine. The pleather skirt gives it a more artistic, edgy look. I balance the outfit with a long sleeve, high front body suit. I find that it’s most effective to plan outfits around one specific body part, rather than bearing it all. In this photograph, you can’t see it, but the leather skirt is high waisted and also a few inches above my knees. In order to make the outfit look less exposed, I chose the long sleeve top in combination with the skirt. I also like the little bit of cheetah print that shows in the back from the bandeau I was wearing, which pops among the other neutral pieces. Lastly, the pink beanie adds an edge to the look too, so despite the fact that it’s pink, it makes the outfit more tomboyish. I like my outfits to emphasize both feminine and masculine traits, because I am not dominantly either in my style nor personality.Β 

Daily Writing Prompt: Dig through your purse and discuss the contents that you find.

One of the best methods to learn about an individual’s interests it to investigate the contents of their purse. Obviously that doesn’t mean dive right in without their permission. With that being said, let’s get started on the contents of my own purse, one that I frequently use and rarely clean out!

The first object I pulled out was my Nexus 7 tablet. This tablet was originally given to me to assist me in my extracurriculars at school, and has proven much more useful than that. When my computer has issues, the first device I turn to is, of course, my tablet, because it’s compact, it can hold all of my assignments, I can access all the necessary resources to get my work done, and it has the same essential capabilities! During the Summer, I like to bring it with my on my Barnes and Noble outings, and other places with free wifi!Β 

The next item removed from my purse was my Trublend Minerals powder makeup. My skin gets really shiny throughout the day, so I’m usually carrying this when I’m headed out for a busy day so I can manage to get some touch ups every now and then. I’m not a sponsor or anything for this brand, but if you have severe acne like I do, you should definitely give this powder product a shot! It has a beautiful, light finish, lasts a decently long time, and is relatively gentle on the skin! What’s not to love?!

Next up is my “Blazing Lava” lipstick, by L’oreal. It has a red, glitteryΒ tint and applies lightly at first, which looks great for everyday use and, when applied heavier, is essential for a night out. I found this lipstick to be a great buy. Originally, I was skeptical about purchasing this particular one because someone in the store had broken it, but I really wanted to try the color, so i let the doubt slide off of my back. And turns out it’s an essential part of my beauty routine!

Here we go. Two Yogurtland spoons. A couple of days ago, my sweetheart and I ended up going on a date to Yogurtland to get some froyo before he went out on a trip with his family. We had an amazing time, I filled my belly with all kinds of sweets, and I got one of those cute little Yogurtland spoons that they give you with your froyo! The best part is that the spoons are all cute and colorful. I don’t even know if they’re reusable, but I reuse them in college. I really can’t ever have enough silverware.

Lastly, I have a water bottle because I can’t go anywhere without one. I have a real problem with not drinking enough water on a daily basis, so having it on hand and weighing down my purse gives me incentive to drink it, and it works! I tend to drink much more water without thinking about it, if I’m carrying it around.

So tell me, what do you have in your purse?
