Iron to the Face Clark Gable.

A sudden change is happening and the photo above is my current emotion 
and how I've been feeling for the past 48 hours. 

I know ya'll think I'm probably insane for moving twice in the past 2 months, but I am moving again. I'm packing up the apartment and the pets, and heading back to the suburbs for some TLC. I'm keeping my salon day job in Chicago, and will most likely be spending a majority of my time out here, but I will be a short 40 minute drive away.

I'm not the best person to talk about self respect to, because I've definitely had my times, but sometimes, if you have to get out of a situation and you know you do, just fricken' do it. It's going to be painful, it's going to suck really bad, you're going to be fine one minute and horrible the next, and even if time doesn't heal it completely- you'll be a better place. Not every day can go as planned, and when it does a complete 180, you have to make the best out of it.

Hopefully this move is temporary. I plan to be back in my own (hopefully) apartment in Chicago after winter. I'm going to use this time to become a better self, save money, blow Bird Trouble up like crazy, reconnect with a few people, and have a blast doing it. I plan on going on vacations, I plan on doing a lot of thrifting, but first, I plan on getting out of unhealthy place in my life.

This being said, if there's short periods of time where I'm MIA from twitter, facebook, instagram, my blog, or my shop- don't think I've left. I'm just getting things situated! 


ps. Is anyone going to the Vintage Bazaar at the Congress Theater tomorrow? I'll be there shopping!


  1. Good luck with everything. Sometimes, being in the suburbs really clears your head. I live in the suburbs now and I wouldn't change it any other way. Just listen to your heart!

  2. I hope the move goes smoothly. I'm sure it'll be nice to get away from the city for a bit.

  3. I hope everything is going OK with you. Let me know if you need anything or just want to hang out! <3
