Going Back to My Original Intentions

I started blogging because I love to write and I think it's so neat to be able to share all the random little thoughts that go through my head and all the things that I love, but as I sit here staring at a blank post, having no idea what to write about, I'm realizing that I've strayed really far from those original intentions. What I truly love more than anything else in the whole world are my friends and family, but I don't think I've ever mentioned them before. I keep asking myself: If practically my whole world revolves around the people that are special to me, am I really writing about all the aspects of my life?! And the answer is no... absolutely not. Up until a few days ago, I hadn't directly told any of my friends about my blog, and I'm pretty sure that was so wrong of me... they deserve to know. Now that I've leaked what once was my biggest secret, I feel so relieved and, in a way, free. Don't get me wrong, the primary focus of my blog will still remain about fashion, but I think it will be a lot more relatable and enjoyable to read if I bring in some other real people, so meet these incredibly special individuals:


Dad // Anyone that personally knows him knows that he's a total goof. He's the one to go to when you want a laugh or any football statistics (go Pats!!), but he's pretty great at just being a friend, too. I truly think that I was blessed with the best dad on the planet (sorry guys) and wouldn't trade him for the world.

Mom // She's behind the camera, in the kitchen, on the sidelines, and pretty much anywhere else you can imagine. She always listens, is the family cheerleader, and serves as my best friend (until she has to parent, that is). My mom is the bomb.

Molly // Thank God for older sisters... Molly has been my best buddy since day one. She is ridiculously athletic and cares so much for others - two of the things I admire the most.

Andrew // I don't even know where to start with this little dude. Some days I spend playing with him for hours and other days he makes me want to rip my hair out. I think it's the fact that we're so alike that makes it harder for us to always get along, but we make things work. We get closer and closer the older we get. Hopefully he'll grow out of his football obsession soon so he won't constantly ask me to play - that causes major controversy.


Emily // Everyone that sees her adorable little face becomes instantly obsessed. My sweet Emmy is the so precious, sweet, and feisty. I could snuggle with her all day long.


Morgan // Morgan found my Instagram account and blog without me even telling her, and now that she knows I feel so much better. She's so supportive and sweet and is someone I'll always know I can count on!

Samantha // Sam is one of the smartest people I know, both in academics and in social situations. She always has the best advice to offer when I'm in need of a second opinion, but she doesn't act like too much of a mama bear. I could spend hours talking to her about the deepest conversations and then go play outside like little kids, so I always treasure my time with her.

Liv // Liv is the goofy friend. She's crazy good at sports, loves to crack jokes, and never fails to make me laugh. She's one of those people I can wear sweatpants around, and that's important. Oh, and she's embarrassingly taller than me - I'm going to need to hit five feet to even have a chance.

I do have a few other close friends that either didn't want to be mentioned individually or have yet to find out about Prepster in Pearls, but I think that even just having these people on board will really make blogging that much more fun for me (even though I love it as is) and bring on some new possibilities!
