dusting off the old keyboard

well let’s see, I haven’t written in here since 2010. Hello if you still remember me. There has been so many things that have happened, and I have so many friends to talk to but for the first time in 3 years I feel like spilling it to the blog. Random, I know. Well, summer school obviously went well, because I’m still at LSU. Selfies have become more socially acceptable (selfies used to take up most of my blog), and I have had what you may call my college love. I have pulled countless allnighters for tests, cried from stress at school, been the life of the party at the clubs on school nights, got kicked out of clubs, got a 100 on a final, had an interview done on me for my fashion for the reveille, was properly introduced to Chase (whom I went to highschool with), watched him lose over 160 pounds and go on the today show, danced in the LSU homecoming parade. Just a lot of random things. 

 

I have learned that my favorite part of college, and probably life itself is getting out of my comfort zone. Comfort zones may be comfortable, stable, and reassuring. But all of those things live in the house of BORING. For instance, coming to LSU not knowing ANYONE for that summer semester was the bravest and scariest thing I have ever done, but it was also the best. Making that decision instead of staying home and going to hair school/nicholls/whatever small community college has led me to the main road with many trails of adventure.

 

We don’t truly know who we are unless we have the strength to separate ourselves from the people,things, and places that have made us who we are our whole lives.

 

I’m in the midst of sculpting myself, and at the peek of self discovery.

 

Please stay tuned, and I encourage you (no matter how old you are) to do something that is not in your routine. Smile at a stranger you always thought was cute, try that chinese fruit that has always freaked you out, stop watching dancing with the stars and take a local salsa lesson. We don’t know when the advantage of life will be taken from us, so do the things you have always even wondered about.

Lazy or busy?

shh, your queen is speaking.

how weird is that picture? Oh well, it includes a pumpkin which is festive, and I am wearing a tiara which is good for this blog.

I know we haven’t spoken in a while and there is a lot to catch up on, but I kinda just want to speak of some current issues. For instance, I really can never sleep anymore. I know what is not the answer to this problem though, taking one of my dad’s sleeping pills, that’s what. I did this one time and I woke up to the question ” so why did you drop the salsa and just leave glass everywhere” opps.

Anyways, college. COLLEGE COLLEGE COLLEGE. Ugh, how our relationship is so damn unstable. The biggest challenge is truly balance, unfortunate for me I am such an uncoordinated girl. Am I lazy or just busy? I think its a little of both. Sorry if this blog is about nothing but I felt the need to do it for my readers that I have out there, like Austin’s mother who I seen in the mall the other day, shout out to my number one reader.

hmm.. Let’s show you some pics of my life and explain..

k so this is my blue dog wall in my room at the apartment. yes I like blue dog, obviously.

Coming to LSU I tried diets, and I just put the die in diets and let them do so.

candles have become a big part of my life, it’s an obsession. They just brighten up my life.

met a new friend, her name is Gabby. We are both obsessed with weddings, but she really went all out on this adventure and told this dress place she was really getting married. Fun day!

I got the iphone4 so I facetime now..

this is my crazy best friend, we built a tent in my living room like children. We have so much fun!

Guess who? MWAHAHAHAHAH

so this is the view I get on an average day. this is the view of me laying on a bench in the Quad in between classes.

now this is me in the quad enjoying life.

Now this is class. Tyler’s roommate’s gf left this for him. Gosh that mushy love just makes me sick!

Now this is the wonderful lady who helped me drop my class of hell. We became great friends.

I’ve been loving these convertibles.

shopping a little too much..

obsessing over gaga.

more and more FaceTime!

This is my roommate from Guatemala. She is amazing, her name is Maria!

This is Tyler’s first time getting drunk.

This is the meal I mad for us the morning after we went out..such a mom

evennn made cookies.

this is Grant being a good student.

and this is me being a nutritious student.

We spend A LOT OF TIME AT THE LIBRARY. ugh.

this is me living it up at my first game.

This is my parents being cheesy and coming visit me with boxes of random objects.

This is the partying getting to me. Standing on random BMW’s and whatnot.

awake on a game day with my game day buddies.

game day with my buddies again!

Letting the partying get the best of us again.

this was me yesterday being a child and falling in love with the unique pumpkin.

well I’m so sad to go, but I hope you have enjoyed this blog. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders to do this and get you caught up somewhat.

 

LOVE&&FUTUREZZ’s,

Fashion Blog!

Greetings all!

I hope your summer is being enjoyed, and I hope you are making memories.

I have some great news, I completed the LSU summer provisional program, and I am now attending in the fall. I plan to major in Apparel design.

I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on my wardrobe and fashion lately. Hence, this is going to be my fashion blog.

What do I think are some must-have’s for this fall?

Let’s start with your fingers, and wrists.

Nail it with nude and pale pink nails!

Now for your wrists.. Watches are back, silver is not. Go for anything big and anything gold. It’s called “boyfriend style”, and I have fallen DEEPLY in love with it.

Of course, who would not want this gold Rolex covered in diamonds? A watch like this cost around $36,000 no thanks, I’d take a new BMW

I happily settled for this beautiful fossil, only $100.

The next must-have I will name is simply because they are a classic and will never grow old. It is the accessory I would marry if it were a human. The Ray Ban’s! I love my tortoise shell Ray Ban’s with all my heart. I purchased them with some graduation money.

Another accessory that I would love to have is this bag below. Anything with the combination of vintage and Chanel is a winner.

Now as far as clothes, anything black, or white. Neutrals are just as good. Make sure you don’t forget high waist skirts, ruffles, and lace. Lace leggings are a good modest thing to go under your skirts. Oh and Ralph Lauren never dies.

BLAZERS, BLAZERS, FREAKING BLAZERS!

make sure the look tailored, and you are good to go. Put it over anything and add sophistication to any outfit. I used some examples from Ann Taylor and J.Crew

As far as shoes.. for everyday, these would be fabulous..

Going out, or just want to stand out? Step into some of these babies.

Let’s face it. This season is full of boyfriend style type things, from the oversized watches, to the men’s style dress shoes, to the blazers.

Feel like a girl again and fall into a little black dress! The example on the left is by Fendi, and it is $2,190.00 That’s a little out of my price range, I don’t know about yours, but the one on the right is very similar. I find anyway. It is on UrbanOutfitters.com under sale. It is only $30.00

Well that’s my take of this season, hope you’ve enjoyed!

FASHION&LOVE,

Brittany Elizabeth(like the queen) Bourgeois

Thoughts of whatever

Summer, It’s been a year! I mean I see you around from time  to time, but I don’t feel you. I don’t hear you, and the beautiful songs you sing. We really should get coffee and catch up soon.

What if this becomes a pattern? What if LSU  takes away my summer every year? What if Summer and I become strangers? The thought of this makes me want to vomit, and this thought also leads me to other thoughts. Call me negative, but in America, as soon we are old enough to start functioning we are sent to school. After we graduate, we either continue our education by attending college, or we skip a step and join the work force. We work until we are too old to work, and then we retire and watch life slip through our fingers. Most of us by this time are either in a nursing home, have moved to some glorious place to relax if we’re lucky, or just turn crazy. I don’t like this idea. I want to be free! I don’t want to be a homeless bum though. In America, if I don’t live my life altering myself to fall perfectly into each step of this ridiculous process that we call life, then I am either lazy or crazy.

I want to get away, I want to leave this country. I need to discover every culture. If the world was a buffet I would not strictly only get food from America. I want a little taste of everything, after all we do only have one life. I do not want to spend mine doing what millions have already done, living the exact same life, and doing the exact same things. I want help people and actually make a difference.

I’m not sure exactly where I want to go, how I am going to get there, or even when I am going to start this journey. What I know for sure though, is that I will not take part in this pattern. I spend too much time thinking about nothing, lol.

LOVE&COLLEGE,

“the house that built me”

I was so sure that I was ready to leave this small town, so sure about being on my own without my parents nagging me everyday. I was so sure of all of these things for quite some time now, but today it hit me.

When I was driving down my street I realized that I was moving out in less than a week, and that this place that I grew up, rode my bike, learned how to drive, learned guitar, and gained all my friendships, the place that I call home, wouldn’t truly be my home next week. It’ll be the place I visit.

What if I’m bored and I just want to go next door to Jada’s, or if I need a night away and I want to escape at the abates behind Jada? Or what if I just absolutely want to pick up Savanna on the golfcart and drive down to the snowball stand? These little everyday things and habits that I’ve gained would from now on take a lot of effort, just to be equal with the lifestyle I’m accustom to.

I’m finding it hard to move away from “the house that built me”, I feel like I’m separating from all I know. Maybe I’m just a big baby, no I am.. I hope this new chapter in my life is very colorful. like these pictures I took tonight due to boredom.

that’s just one.

let’s close with this thought.. How do we know what dish we belong to, when we don’t even know what ingredient we are?

NOSLEEPANYMORE&LOVE,

Brittany Elizabeth (like the queen) Bourgeois!

oh p.s. look at one of my senior pictures!

I graduated a few days ago..

Wow so the day I thought would never come, did. It still hasn’t hit me yet. Graduation day I sat there and looked at everyone in our bright purple caps and gowns and thought the next time I see these people they will probably be in walmart with their new families. They’ll mostly be mothers and Fathers. It’s so crazy that these supposid “Best time of our lifes” is over, and it hasn’t hit me! You know what else hasnt hit me? That I’m moving out in like two weeks! I’m going to summer school at LSU and then in the fall I will study fashion at LSU. I hope I have a thing going with this. wish me luck!

Love&Grownup world,

killing a million birds with ONE blog

Wow, so guess what I did today?

I presented my seinor project! I really did so well! I’m giving my bling elephant ring the credit, the elephant’s trunk is up and that stands for good luck, but not only that, my Memaw was in love with elephants when she was alive and I know wearing the ring helped her be there with me and keep me as  calm as possible.

Let’s back up  my life time line a little bit, the weekend that just passed was my senior prom, and my “sister” Savanna and I thought it would be cool to get a spray tan for the first time ever. When the lady asked how dark I wanted to be I said, “PRETTY dark, just not orange” and Savanna said “dark, just not orange.” Well I came out a million shades darker by saying “pretty dark”, I litterally looked like an African American.. After the lady was finished spraying me I went to get dressed and she was like “oh honey, you can’t put your bra back on” So that was great news! I was really excited about waiting to pay in front of everyone without a bra and sitting in the waiting room looking like a brown cave woman while Savanna was getting sprayed for at least 20 minutes! THE BEST PART! I literally already was brown and then the lady so oh and prepare to darken with in the next 4 hours, oh thats WONDERFUL!

 so much in fact, that my mother made me put on an afro wig and hold a wooden watermelon. I know that I will extremely regret putting this picture up, but hey, anything for my readers.

Alright,  so to make the contrast even bigger I got my teeth whitened!

This was my sister and I at prom.

The Monday after prom, we had senior skip day! That was so fun! My tan was kind of worn off by this time, and I was mixed instead of black. This is my husband and I going down the slip-n-slide. I’m going to miss him, he’s leaving for disney world tomorow!

Guess what? I graduate in exactly one month from today! Look at the picture that I turned in for senior baby pictures, what can I say, I stayed the same. Messy.

SUCCESS&LOVE,

Brittany Elizabeth (like the queen) Bourgeois!

p.s. look who caught a fish like two weekends back 🙂
