RANDOM STUFF, EXTRASChloe Gordon2 Comments

You know when you find something new and you want to share it with the entire world and just scream how great it is from your rooftops? I bet you know the feeling. Well the other day I was avoiding a conversation, and like us millennial seem to do ever so often, I jumped on my phone and scrolled through the infinite bounds that are known so well as “social media.”

As I was scrolling, I saw an ad for an app that had something to do with working out. I was bored, too full from lunch, and dressed in workout clothes that I had no intention of actually working out in, so you could say I had a calling to look more into the app. As I started to research it more I decided that it seemed pretty cool and hit that download. 

I literally — not ten minutes ago — finished the 15 minute leg workout, and let me tell you something… it was amazing. The music was good, the instructor tells you what to do and is motivating, and it went by so quickly.

I looked at my phone thinking I was only 5 minutes into the workout but I was three minutes away from being done. 

Now I’m literally sore, in the best way possible, from 15 minutes of doing a workout in my bed room. I can’t wait to try the elliptical and treadmill workouts once I get to the gym. It’s so awesome because you have someone telling you what to do, the music is already picked out (the worst part of working out on my own is picking good and motivated songs), and it’s fun!  

This isn’t a sponsored post whatsoever, I just needed to share this amazing discovery with you all.

If you’ve tried aaptiv before, what do you think??

little black dress

FASHIONChloe GordonComment

I feel like little black dresses have been under appreciated lately. I haven’t been hearing much about them and it kind of depresses me. I’ll be the first to say it: I’m a minimalistic fashionista. I don’t like all the bells and whistles. The simpler the better. Honestly, if I could just wear jeans and a striped tee everyday and not feel like a cartoon character (the ones that never change clothes) then I would be my happiest. Instead, I scramble everyday to find a variation of that outfit. 

Recently, Tobi.com reached out to me to work together and I couldn’t have been more excited. Before they reached out I had purchased a sweater and a suede jacket, and let me tell you, they are two of the most awesome pieces I’ve ever order online — which is saying a lot! 

Anyway, I picked out this little black dress and I fell in love with it. It’s a little different that “just a dress” because of the cutout and thefitted waistline. I’m obsessed. This dress will most likely be making an appearance at my sorority formal in the spring, and I can’t wait. 

I think the reason I most love little black dresses is the fact that they can be worn with anything. Like you could totally dress it up with fancy heels and bag and necklace, or dress is down with some booties a cargo jacket and big bag. The options are endless, even for a minimalistic person like me! 

Let me know which outfit you like better in the comments below: casual or fancy.

Conquering Self Doubt

College, RANDOM STUFFChloe Gordon1 Comment

I’ve always known that I want to do something creative with my future. I don’t know exactly what this creative thing is, but I know I’m not cut out for being something conventional like a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. It’s not in my DNA, I thrive on being creative. 

However, this past semester, I started to doubt myself. I started wondering if maybe I’m not as creative as I thought. I started questioning my originality and my ability to think outside the box. It got to be so bad that I stopped pushing myself. I stopped trying new things, I stopped thinking creatively. I suppressed my “weird” thoughts and feelings.

I think I started to doubt myself because I stopped trying new things. I felt trapped in this bubble of repetitiveness. Wake up, class, eat, sleep, and repeat. I felt like I was in this cycle of never ending boringness. 

Every once in a while its so important to break the cycle and get out and do and see new things. 

A few days ago, during the first big snow of the year, I forced my friends to drive up to the mountains and take pictures. We’ve been to this spot before, but I needed to get my creative juices flowing and experience the beauty of nature with my friends. 

And you know what? That half hour of being creative and outdoors was just the wakeup call that I needed. I’m back to myself, and that’s how I know I’m not pursuing the wrong path. I’m doing the right thing with my life and future and everything is going to be fine and workout just like it’s supposed to.
