Spring Cleaning 2013

So it’s been a while since I’ve posted, life happens. Any who..here is Trust Fund Broke’s Top 5 things you MUST clean this spring.

SpringCheck

1. Your Closet – Now this may be obvious, but you need to get rid of that sweater that you haven’t worn since senior year. Plus, it is THE best de-stresser. I’m a little weird, but I organize my closet by season. I’m all about getting rid of old and in with new more fabulous stuff!

2. Your Car – Really underestimated. The trunk, middle console and glove compartment are all places we seem to use to hide our extra things. I personally hate getting into dirty cars. (Obviously, a couple papers here and there are fine) but I’m talking lazy people with the fast food garbage everywhere, unless we consumed that in the time of me being present in the car, I automatically think you’re disgusting.

3. Your Phone & Social Media Contacts – Okay, de-friend those people that aren’t even creep worthy (unless you do actually want them to see how fab your life is) and delete those contacts that have one name or “Adam from the Bar” unless you text him on a frequent basis I highly doubt he remembers you at all. Sorry hun. And the games, just de-app them.

4. Your Computer – Ahhh, you know ALL those funny Meme’s you saved to post to Facebook? Yeah, you probably forgot about them and now you have 30 pictures saved with LoL1 LOLOLOL and HAHAHAHA. Do some clean up and make your baby shine!

5. Makeup – Most makeups have a 6 month expiry date. Thats not long at all. Then, the air gets them and bacteria and causes infections and thats just gross. Wash your brushes regularly and replace that Mascara!

Pinterest Fav’s – March 2013

I <3 Pinterest. I do. It’s literally my go-to for everything. Most of that is fashion. So here’s some of this weeks favourites!

I love this, I’m a country girl at heart and I love how this is mixed with more city-fied peices.

This is such a fantastic work outfit. Still super put together and it looks effortless.

I think this is perfect for a casual lunch date with friends or to run errands in.

I’m obsessed with everything about this outfit. The white jeans, light chambray shirt, the bubble necklace, and that bag is divine! Perfect for the summer

 

It’s March!

Holy smokes. I can’t believe it’s already the first of March! I’m not sure where the time has gone this year. But I’m ready for the sun and sand that’s for sure! I went to Florida almost a month ago. (sad) I’ll throw up pictures later. But now, I need to buckle down and do stuff for me! 

I have a gym membership and I don’t use it. So it’s time for bikini boot camp for this girl! and I’m sure like most of you, I’ve been on Pinterest non stop searching for new spring and summer outfits. 

I’m cleaning out my closet this weekend (don’t worry, there will be a post coming next week for that) and I’m excited to make it clean and better.. bye bye garbage! 

I’ve also been working on my 101 list as well. 

I just feel better when everything in my room looks like I had it professionally styled. 

Keep checking back! I have tons of new posts for you :)

Lauren Conrad: Style Icon and It Girl

I think every girl that ranges from 16-29 more than likely uses her as a style reference. With her girl next door attitude and her  seamlessly effortless style Lauren Conrad out shines them all.

We all saw her grow up on Laguna Beach, where her style was less than par than it is now and constantly battled the whole Kristen & Stephen thing. (Seriously, what was that horse shit anyways). We saw her fail her first semester at San Fran and move home to Laguna to her life on the Hills, as an emerging fashion student to what she is today: Style Icon, Entrepreneur, Fashion Designer, Author.

I personally, adore Lauren Conrad. If she’s wearing something, I’m quick to try and reproduce it for my self. That California blonde? Yep, you guessed it. I had that too. Her books? Own them, read them, love them. She’s on a cover of a magazine? I’m right there buying it.

Why I love her:

  • Carefree easy style (You can copy & look like a million bucks) 
  • She’s an awesome role model she’s not Lindsay Lohan wasted all the time
  • Who didn’t feel the Hills was about their life?  (I did!)

Look at her golden locks!

Her style is timeless!

Lauren Conrad is todays IT Girl, even though her claim to fame was reality tv. I personally, adore her.

Love & all that other stuff.

I was in love once or maybe twice. Back a long as time ago. He broke my heart about 2 years ago. We’re going to call him JR.

Now, what JR and I had was some real love – at least on my part.  I was 17 and head over high heels in l-o-v-e. I thought he was the best thing to happen to the universe. But, boy I was I wrong. After the 2.5 year relationship went down hill, I’m talking waaaaaaay down hill. I had realized everything I had thought I wanted & known was gone. We we were engaged and had the fairytale life planned out, at least I did. Turns out, he left me for some 18 year old bimbo. So, I had started being 20 years old and going out and partying away (I still do) and didn’t give a damn about nothin’. But that’s when the other major players (key word there) came into my life.

A- We had worked together, and he turned out to be a really good friend after everything. He was one and still is one of my better guy friends. Now I’m not sure when feelings came into play but we’d occasionally hook up during my train wreak year, and recently, that lead to more. Now, I love A with all my heart and I let him in without even knowing, but he lead me on to get what he wanted basically, and well.. He hurt me and didn’t realize. So with JR & A, both under my belt, this girl well, did some things and in Sept 2012 enter J.

I forget how I actually know, J. Friend of a friend perhaps? Bar outings? Oh wait. Both. Anywho.. Enter Sept 2012, where my trainwreck is almost to recovery station with a few more pit stops. J & I started talking, all the time and it was actual conversation it was wonderful. he came home with me one night and we cuddled and made out and I loved it. Then later on in the year it lead to you you guessed it, sex and we had talked about being together and we agreed that with our pasts still hurting us, we shouldn’t date date yet. While, J had a birthday in Jan. Basically BEGGED me to show up, and so I do. It’s all guys. (that I knew thankfully) so I proceed to get drunk and drunker. So the truth comes out.. He looks at me and says, “I’m sorry, but I’m seeing someone & I didn’t know how to tell you”. I bawled for 3 days. Called all my friends from the bar sobbing about what an ass he is. and I haven’t talked to him since. With that being said, my friend wanted me to join an online dating site with her. I agreed and the first day, I had lots of hits and messages and it was a great self confidence boost after J. First day, I started talking to this guy, D. All was good, had SO much in common we talked 24/7. It was insane and like J, it was actual conversations. Telling me how beautiful I am. All that.. then we FaceTime’d and we stopped talking for two weeks, till today where out of the blue, I got a text that said hey :) and then we talked like nothing happened and then he ended the conversation with “I have to go to work now but have a good day [my name here]”. It stung. We used to always talk when he was at work and vice versa. But, we didn’t today. It was like a piece of my recent past had opened and shut a door on my thumb. 

I figured I’d share that story because of the dreaded (for most) Valentines Day is approaching. I thought J & D would be around for sure.. But I was clearly wrong. I wan’t to be in Love again, I do but with all these people hurting me.. I just don’t know.

UPDATE:  So, this post started while I was in Florida trying to detox from everything in my life. It turns out that all my problems (men) followed me there so to speak. D & I ended up talking ALL week where I thought it would be a great idea to get off the plane, go home and drop off my suitcase and go to his house. I mean, I got free beer but well yeah. Stuff happened, we weren’t clear on the terms and eventually stopped talking. Till his birthday on March 8th. I will tell everyone Happy Birthday – that’s just me. Well it’s his birthday 3 am  and tells me to call him. So I do, what’s the harm. Starts off wonderful. and then BAM he tells me he’s seeing someone. Who he has moved in with his girlfriend of less than a month. (Dodged a bullet?)

And J, oh Mister J. Has a girlfriend, but he spots me at a bar before I even see that he’s there. Constantly hugs me. Like everytime I see him. Well okay then. He’s an ongoing battle.

Your 20’s

They say your 20’s are the best time of your life. I was told that on my 20th birthday, and I’ve kept being told that. I’ve even told people that. But I’m not so sure if its 100% true anymore. 

Your 20’s are supposed to be college-filled-living-with-your-friends-being brokely-fabulous- and figuring out your life. Okay, that part is true. But I was skimming through the “Bible” the other day (I’m obviously made a Legally Blonde reference there) and they had a article about how your 20’s are actually ruining your life. Okay, I admit I skimmed that too. But one thing really stood out for me.

Social Network sites are affecting you more than you think. Basically saying that what seems like harmless Facebooking checking up on your friends and what not now has turned into self esteem issues as well. 

I know you’re hot. You know you’re hot. But you’re single. Yes, free drinks on weekends & random make outs with that hottie at the bar is great but when you log in it’s all of a sudden “Random girl from high school is now in engaged to some random dude” or oh look, baby pictures. 

Regardless. Life is what you make it. 

What do you think?

2013

With the year coming to an end tomorrow, I’ve been thinking about this year and what went right and what went wrong. Given, a lot of ups and downs

Some pluses to my year:

  • got out of debt (!)
  • saved and finally bought my MacBook Pro
  • met some really awesome new friends & re-connected with even greater old ones
  • got a somewhat adult job
  • started realizing my dreams

Now the downfalls:

  • Met some (fun!) but overall negative people – but who doesn’t meet bad people? right?
  • spent a little too much money on things I shouldn’t have, and I can’t even say it was clothes
  • My “Adult” job sucks
  • I moved back with my family – rent free, this is a downfall cause they enable the lifestyle I once had without realizing it.

Now I was looking at other blogs (of course) and I got really inspired after reading Carly (www.collegeprepster.com) and Mackenzie (www.mackenizehoran.com) and I loved how Carly had something to focus on each month and Mackenzie highlighted what she achieved in 2012.

So I’m not 100% sure what 2013 has in store for me yet or what I really want to achieve but I promise you this, 2012 is going out with a bang tomorrow night and 2013 will be even bigger for me.

Hello

I’ve always wanted to blog. I mean actually blog about things I care about. I love fashion like any girl and I aspire to be an Event Planner one day. I’m also 22 years old and even though I’m out of debt for now, I’m still broke as a joke (see my bio).

This blog will focus on things that inspire me from fashion to entertaining and maybe even a few personal posts.
