messy reality

since everyone and their mother has an iphone except me, i've always thought instagrams were pretty rad :)

my friend coley took these when she was visiting the other day. you guys have seen my vanity, my work space, and other parts of my apartment/ life in pristine condition. but normally, my reality is just a bit more messy :)

i like these snaps because it's a little more authentically what my day looks like. mess and all.

over the years, i've gotten better at being a "clean" person. but sometimes, that urge escapes me, and i've been leaving messes all around lately. oops!

at least scout understands.

  3. I love Instagram. <3 I use it on my mom's phone, but I can't wait to get my own.

    Your room is so much cleaner than mine! I'm seriously going to deep clean it when school gets out!

  5. These photos are lovely...better than any filter I've seen on instagram! Even your messy space looks like organized chaos :) Mine...even my cats don't approve of :)

    1. lol!! it is a sort of disorganized organization... but i have bad habits of leaving things around, and leaving drawers open. my bureau is basically never free of crap.

  6. Everything looks really neat! When things are "too much in their right place", it looks like a fake environment. Not saying I like to live surrounded by a mess and junk, haha.

    Hey, I got your CDs today! :D I'm planning to ship them soon :p. Thanks a lot!!!!

    1. awesome, i'm glad you got them! i do like looking at pretty, "perfect" pictures on elsie's blog and all that. but i dunno. i feel like there's something special about ones like these, too. they look more like a real life lived.

  12. I totally get that. I'm pretty messy...I mean I like things to be clean, but I dont mind clutter, and sometimes I look at my photos on instagram and shudder, people probably think I'm a slob! ;) Youre messes are pretty though!
