College Students!

So another semester is upon us. Amidst the studying and finals, we know have to worry about books for next semester. To me it is a waste of time and money to buy books. You will spend hundreds of dollars on a book you will never use again. That is why I am a firm believer in book renting.

CampusBookRentals.com has so many amazing books. They save you so much money and they relieve the stress of searching for spare change in your couch.

Perks of Renting:
- save 40-90% off bookstore prices ( that is a no brainer)
-Free shipping both ways (again duh..no brainer)
-You can highlight and mark the books as they were your own
-Flexible renting periods
-They donate to Operation Smile an amazing organization that saves lives.
-So not only are you saving money, your saving lives..way to go...your a superhero!

Also Campus Book Rentals has a Rentback program. So the books you have "that you thought you would use again", you can make money on. You can rent out your books to other students. That way you make 2-4x more money than doing a buy back program.

Or you can just sell your $300 book back to the school for $20...and take a kick to the pants.

New York

I have been hoarding sweaters lately. It has been beyond cold here. Well for me it is beyond cold. I wanted a cute way to kinda dress up this sweater. So I added a cute frilly tunic underneath. I loved how this outfit turned out. A more girly way to dress up a varsity sweater. How do you like to dress up sweaters?

Little Aria is growing up so fast. I cannot wait to start doing outfit posts with her. Man she is so cute and I just cannot stand her pinchy cheeks.

Fall Dots

Yesterday Aria got her 2 month immunizations. It was so heartbreaking. She was a trooper though. I am back at work. I miss her so much while at work, but I know she is in good hands with her grandma! She sure loves her Grandma.

So I got this skirt from a Honey and Lace party. I love polka dots and I love maxi skirts. So win win. I do have to warn you the fabric is quite thin so I would suggest wearing a slip or tights underneath. I don't know why companies don't line their fabrics? Why make a garment see through?? So I am going to line the skirt myself. Kinda irritating.

Have you ever turned a can't into a can?

This whole blog of mine use to be a can't. I have always been painfully shy. Awkward even. But I have always had a passion for fashion. I started designing clothes when I was in Elementary school. When I found that I lacked the skill of sewing I went to styling. I started Nightchayde. Soon after I got some really awful comments fired at me. I kept telling myself I can't do this. I started listening to the negativity of others. But one day I woke up and told myself that I can do this. I can be myself despite what other people may say. You can do anything you set your mind to. You don't have to be rich, popular, or the expectation of beauty. Everything is subjective. You are the only one that dictates what you can and cannot achieve. I love this campaign by Covergirl. #GirlsCan!

Camo Time

Fall means out comes the camo. I love a good camo jacket and comfortable leggings. It has been getting cooler and cooler. This is my last week home with Baby Girl. I am going to miss her so much. It has been so hard thinking of having to leave her to go back to work. I love my job, but when I love staying home and being with Aria.

Why I am perfectly fine my husband is in love with another girl.

From the moment I hit the dating years there was one thing I always looked for in any guy I dated. Would he be a good father? I know it's always "too soon" to think about that stuff if your just dating someone. But you marry who you date right? So what's the point of dating someone if they lack a trait that you look for in a guy. I dated some really big losers. I dated some amazing guys. But non of them showed my the genuine love that Brandon did. I knew he would love our child as much if not more than he loved me. 
Brandon was the first to find out if we were pregnant or not. I took the test set it on the counter and took a shower. I told him to look at it first. With tears in his eyes he just showed me the test. It was positive. I honestly think he was more excited than I was. I was a little more freaked out. My mind instantly went through the labor part. I was petrified of labor. Absolutely terrified. 

My first Trimester was complete and total hell. I was so sick. I remember the only foods I could keep down were Fries, and Ramen noodles. After I got my flu shot I was so so sick. I was curled up in bed just crying. Bawling really. And my sweet husband sat there and reassured me everything was ok. That this would all be worth it. And again I knew I had made the right choice in finding an amazing father for our child. This is how he would calm her after a broken heart, a scrapped knee, a bad day. He would take care of her just as he took care of me. 

Fast forward to the day I was most excited about but feared the most. It was birthing day. He sat next to me through the whole process. Got me ice chips, held my hand, watched movies with me. Through the whole process he was there. He even held my puke bag while I hurled my guts out. Now that is true love! Aria came out and I saw his face. He was in love with another girl. And I am totally ok with that. People who say love at first sight isn't real has never experienced seeing your child for the first time. That is truly love at first sight. She started crying and they took her to the warming table and as soon as she heard daddies reassurance she stopped crying immediately. She knew that calming voice. Watching him hold her and comfort her. It absolutely warmed my heart. I was so exhausted and he watched over her. He had no idea what to do but he did an amazing job.

Ladies please, when searching for a companion require that they will be an amazing parent. Guys, never settle for someone who won't be a caring mother. Screw looks, screw money, screw all the petty things people search for in a mate. This is not one thing to settle on. I see the love Brandon has for Aria. I know that she will always be watched after by not one but two loving parents. And that is why I am ok with my Husband loving another girl. 

Yes mom I did cry a few times writing this. Don't judge.
