Fall in Love


I want to fall in love with you

I can’t…

Your heart is somewhere else

Daydreaming about having you to myself


Why did my feelings get involved?


Your love is all I want…

Falling in love with someone that you want to be with and don’t know if they share mutual feelings is hard. Feelings can pull out different emotions. It’s up to you to control how you feel and what you will do next. Feelings aren’t always temporary.

Confessions of a Book Lover ❤️📖

Loving books started for me every since I was younger. Friends and family members used to call me a “nerd” or “bookworm”. I paid them no attention cause nothing could stop me from loving to read. My first collection of books were the Junie B. Jones series by Barbara Park. I blame my elementary school teachers for hooking me on those books lol.

Every time when I went to the store with my mom. I always beg her to buy me a new book. It feels so good to buy a fresh book from the store. I will literally spend hours searching for the “perfect” book before I make a purchase. The title, book cover, or the book description helps me decide if I want to buy it or not. I’m always determined to leave out the store with a good novel. Anyone that’s a book lover like me would understand.

Currently, as a young adult, I still have the same feelings towards books. Whenever I have extra money to buy one I go straight to the book section in the store. Usually, I go to Wal-Mart or Barnes and Noble. I used to go to Books-a-Million since they weren’t as expensive as Barnes and Noble but it’s been awhile since I went there. Wal-Mart may not have a huge variety of books like the other two stores but their prices are way cheaper. So, most of the time I will try checking out what books they have before I go into my other two favorite bookstores.

This is random, but I’ll rather read a print version of a book instead of the kindle version. Reading books from a tablet is cool and all, but let’s face it. It’s nothing like the old-fashioned way of reading books. I love the feeling of a thick chapter book in my hand. It’s more to read and I get add it to my bookshelf.

Anyways, books are the greatest creation that was ever made. I couldn’t imagine myself living in a world without any books. Some of the knowledge I have today comes from books I have read. Shoutout to my mom for feeding my book habit before I was able to buy books with my own money lol!

Do You Know About Polyvore? (Des Blog-a-thon #12)

Polyvore has been out for years. The first time I got introduced to it was 4 years ago from a relative. It’s a website for creating outfits that you imagine yourself or others wearing. Polyvore is a popular fashion website, but there still are people who know nothing about it. Also, you can get this app on your phone or tablet from the app store.

I love this app because I see so any cute clothes that I wish I could buy. Sadly to say I don’t have money to be shopping all the time. The cool thing about finding clothes on there is that it is brands that come from stores that we all shop at. Each piece of clothing has a price beside it. This is good to see if you were willing to buy it. Polyvore has a way of directing you to the site the piece of clothing came from so you can buy it anytime you want.

(Prices beside items) 

So, basically, you’re making your real outfits on your computer. Doesn’t that sound familiar? If you have seen the movie “Clueless” a few times you’ll remember when  Cher was making her outfits on her computer and she pull out the outfit from her closet. I thought it was so cool when I saw her do that on her computer. Then came to realize later that Polyvore actually makes that possible.

Creating outfits on Polyvore became a hobby of mine. Every outfit I made on there was a way to show my creativity when it came to fashion. Even though, I’m not an expert on styling clothes together. I still felt like a fashion designer lol. It can be addicting to see how many stylish outfits you can create. There is no limit to how many you can make.

Also, they have contests you can join on there. Each contest has a theme to them, so you’ll have to create an outfit that goes with the theme. They are popular on there. This is a good way to get noticed on there if you’re serious about fashion or just want to do it for fun.

If you don’t have an account on Polyvore sign up now! It’s more women on this website than men, but men are still allowed to create an account on there. I highly recommend Polyvore to you if you are into fashion. Down below there will be screenshots of outfits that I created on Polyvore. Oh yeah, follow me on Polyvore at xxdes. You should see my username in the screenshot pictures.
