I Wanna Be Sedated





{Floral Crown: DIY -- Jacket: Modcloth -- T-shirt: Thrifted -- Skirt: Thrifted -- Tights: H&M -- Boots: Dr. Martens}

Hello hello everyone. I've been getting some use out of my new floral crown, it turned it out quite lovely! I am always a bit shocked when I make something and it ends up looking like, well, like I didn't make it. I really should get into the habit of making more things since I know you guys really enjoy my DIY posts. Hopefully once I get down some sewing skills I can really take off with my craftiness. Which brings me to a question that I was going to ask you all, do any of you have an inspiration journal? I've been wanting one for a while, but I am also uncertain on where to begin. Any tips or advice would be lovely! 

My winter break is finally winding down and I am not really feeling too excited for my next semester. Granted I only have class two days a week it still feels like a ton of stress coming my way. And whether it is my own or my family's doing I feel a lot of pressure to get high grades. I'm certain it is a mix of both, but I am scared of disappointing everyone around me or even worse, myself. I know this stress got the better of me last semester, which is probably why I am feeling so anxious, but I am determined to not let that happen again. I am ready to fight and finally start enjoying my life a bit more. Everyone always says less stress makes a person more happy, so my number one goal for this upcoming semester is to take a deep breathe and keep reminding myself to relax. 

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and keeping warm

Good luck next semester! I'm sure it will seem less intimidating once you get into it. I love The Ramones and I love this tee! I bought one for my younger son. Great outfit!

I don't have an inspiration journal but it sounds like a great idea. And gosh, stress is the worst, so it's nice to see that you're aiming for more relaxation this semester.

I get really stressed out about school too, so you're not alone. I have a lot of anxiety related to it - which I've just realized recently! I'm up late now because I'm stressing about forms and crap I have to get filled out to graduate. Ugh.
But anyway, this outfit is so so cool. I just love your Ramones shirt paired with the leather jacket. Also those boots look awesome on you.

Gotta love the black and burgundy combo! You look so cool, I like everything about this outfit, it's awesomely edgy. Cherry DM's are a classic, right?
