Finding a Path Away From Prejudgment + Jumpsuits
If you have been following my blog, you probably have noticed that I, of course, LOVE fashion and sharing the latest trends and such with all of you. BUT, I also really enjoy sharing things that are weighing on my mind and heart-some serious topics and some silly topics- but nonetheless, topics that are important to me.

Since I always try to look on the bright side of things though, I can think of three good reasons I do actually like the cold weather- FIRES, COMFY CLOTHES, & BOOKS!

I always blew everyone out of the water in our reading minute contests in elementary school because I would seriously read at least six hours every weekend (the requirement was to maybe read 30-45 minutes a weekend, HAH, but my parents couldn't get my nose out of a book). My whole family is a bunch of book nerds though, so my parents loved that my sister and I had a passion for reading.
I really enjoy most types of books, and I feel like I go through genre phases where I gravitate to one genre for a period of time until I get sick of that style. I have been in what I call "the feel good" romantic comedy phase for a long time now though. I think it's because I feel …
