Memorial Day Weekend

These past few days I really haven't been aware of what day it was (haha). Fortunately enough, I knew at least it was Memorial WEEKEND! In town, you began to see all the American flags whipped out and the BBQs beginning. Not only that, but the HEAT is just absurd at this point, and not having any AC in my car is just ridiculous. Gotta love the valley, right?
To give thanks to all the fallen soldiers this weekend I stuck myself out of my comfort zone and tried to get out as much as possible. I am blessed to be able to do any of this, to just sit down and admire the day. I felt like sitting in a small dark room wasn't necessarily the best way to show my appreciation, right? I don't mean to be cliche, but I know that I wouldn't have been strong or brave enough to do what those fallen soldiers did for us and I will forever be grateful for that.

So, to celebrate, I whipped out my summer clothes and got some yummy food and spent time with my friends and family!

I also wore SHORTS! Jeeze, if I wasn't already out of my comfort zone!

Shorts: American Eagle

I hope you all took time out of your day to appreciate and really enjoy today! ^~^ Have a good one!


What does your room say about you?

We can all agree that a persons room defines who they are. I mean... unless you're living in a place where they don't allow you to do anything to the walls or anything like that, then I guess maybe you can't fullllllyyyy express yourself, but for the most of us, it really is a mirror of who we are. I'm usually always really particular about my room but some days I really just don't care about how it looks and then really soon after I want to change the whole appearance of it. That goes with everything in my life really.
As I grow older, I really begin to appreciate the small things and as I wake up every morning I smile at all the things around me. All the hand-me-downs and DIYs I made to make my room my own, it makes my room ME. Wether its the magazine cutout poster I made in the 7th grade or the new-to-me cheval floor mirror I got last month, everything about this room reflects who I am and I love it. 

What does my room say about me? But most importantly, what does your room say about you?


Good hair days and even better books

I'm pretty sure you can tell by my previous hair post that I have been feeling super happy about my hair, in fact... I've had a natural/product free GOOD HAIR DAY! It hardly looks as damaged as it did before and Im just so happy with how soft and smooth it feels today. It also has grown so much, I am so incredibly stoked on it! BUTTT..... I am a hair cutting addict so who knows if that is really gonna last. Regardless, I will enjoy it while it lasts!

In other unrelated news, I have been reading like a MAD MAN lately! I am currently reading 3 books and if you were to ask "Dalisse, why don't you just read one at a time so you can finish it faster and move on to the next one?" I would tell you that I get mega burned out on books because I read so much of one at a time that I have to take a break from reading that book and continue reading another. I'm not sure why that happens but it is pretty much that way about everything in my life. Currently I am reading, Enders Game, The Time Traveler's Wife and Flowers in the Attic. I really have no preference between these three because in my opinion they're equally good so far. Not the best books I've read, but I would still recommend them! I've only just started Flowers in the Attic and Time Travelers Wife, being only 1/4 of the way in, but I'm over half way into Enders Game! They also all have movies so I'm really happy about that! Yay!
I'd also like to think I got my boyfriend into reading since in the yearish time we've been together, his book collection expanded significantly. He'll probably disagree but shh, ;P.

Check these books out and feel free to give me recommendations!
