My Current Favorite True Crime Books

Friday, April 19, 2019 No comments
Hey everyone! I get a lot of questions on how I find true crime books or what are my favorites so I thought I would compile a small list with a short synopsis on each book. The topics in these books might be sensitive for some people so I will be putting a trigger warning on what topics are being discussed. If you're just here for cute clothes, feel free to scroll past these posts. I also get a lot of questions on why I read true crime and find it so interesting. I am not glorifying these crimes by any means and my heart goes out for all the victims and their friends and families that have been affected by this. While I do find it interesting that people like this exist, I also think it's important to bring up mental health and how certain people slip through the cracks of the justice system. I also think it's important to educate yourself and keep yourself safe from harm. If you have any true crime recommendations, please let me know! I'm always down to read more.

Spring Dapper Day

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 1 comment
Even though I'm no longer a passholder, I still love going to my favorite Disneyland day, Dapper Day! They have an expo in the Disneyland Hotel where you can find vintage items, reproduction items, handmade jewelry, art, and more! I love meeting up with friends and meeting people I follow on Instagram (which sounds so scary but everyone so far has been amazing!). Daniel doesn't mind dressing up and going because they usually have art to look at and he meets up with his artist friends. I've had this dress for a while now and I got it from a vintage store for only $5!!! I believe it's from the '80s because it had these ridiculous shoulder pads that I took out but it gives off a 1950's vibe and it's elastic waist, which is always my friend. I found this amazing suspender set from Amazon for Daniel and it matched my dress so perfectly! I'm so excited for Spring and I've really been loving wearing wide brim hats with flowers.

My Birthday & I'm back???

Hey everyone!! I cannot believe I have not made a post since Christmas but I started going to University and I moved out of my parent's house so you can say I've been a little busy. I finally transferred from community college after 6 years (!!!) and to a university. It's only 30 minutes from my new home in Orange County, I still work at the public library but I also got a job at my college's library AND I also got an internship with the public library so I'm honestly all over the place. I do want to keep blogging and I've been taking lots of outfit photos but I want to include my love of everything true crime here as well. I was thinking of reviewing some of my favorite true crime books that I've been reading or maybe some podcast recommendations as well. I would love to hear what you guys want to see! Thank you so much for sticking around and now on to the outfits!

Since I don't have a Disneyland pass anymore and I love theme parks and dressing up when I go to those theme parks, I had to get another pass. Knotts is so close to my house and Daniel loves the big rides but I just go for the food and taking photos. I've gotten a lot more into vintage western wear thanks for Janey at Atomic Redhead, she has the best western wear! Square dance dresses are great because they're super full and a lot of the skirts have elastic waistbands which is great for those of us, like myself, who have a hard time finding their size in vintage clothing. 

Knotts has this amazing food fest called the Boysenberry Festival where they just have tons of boysenberry flavored food and everyone goes all out to dress up. I need to go again with a purple themed outfit before it ends. If you want more information on Knott's you can go to their website or Janey also has a couple Knott's blog posts (apparently this a Janey shout out post hahaha).
