"The Good, The Bad, & The Pretty Ugly"

These past couple of weeks have beaten me up. So much has happened I can't even remember half of the days. I started my Senior year (yaayyy!), finally got my driver's license, broke my iPhone, forfeited one of the classes I've been looking forward to for months just to name a few things. This week can be summed up with "The Good, the Bad, and the Pretty Ugly." So many great things happened, but with everything that went perfectly something else had to fall through the cracks.

August is upon us which means school is back in full swing. More importantly, I now get to use my agenda! I've never really been into filling an agenda from top to bottom and cover to cover, but's "I Am Very Busy" planner makes me want to write everything down. Plus every time I pull it out of my purse someone comments on the cheeky cover or the super cute inside pages :)

Senior year means it's time to look at colleges and of course that's a stress load in and of itself. Trying to make sure everything turns out right college wise while still trying to truly experience my last year of high school AND trying to run a fashion blog writing 5x a week. Let's just say I will need a lot of prayer this semester.

I shattered my phone this past weekend. I had already cracked it in two separate places, but the fact that I had gotten it fixed twice in the month of June had me kicking myself for being so careless. My iPhone now sports a navy and grey OtterBox to save me from any more trips to the repair shop because when I walked in for the third time on Monday afternoon I could see them all judging me with their "She's back again" expressions.

What made cracking my iPhone so incredibly annoying apart from the fact it had already been fixed twice was that I am hosting a giveaway! I am currently hosting a giveaway on Instagram that you can enter RIGHT NOW to win a load of fabulously glamorous goodies from some of my favorite shops including, Macarons and Peonies Shop (which I've mention a bunch of times on A Glamorous Revelation), and Love Is which I talked about the last time I wrote a "What's Happening With My Life"-type of post. Head on over to Instagram so you have a chance to win. Aannd the giveaway has been extended all the way to next Saturday so you'll have even more time to enter and celebrate National Friendship Day!

The best part of the past two weeks has been all of the great stuff that's happened on A Glamorous Revelation. Last week Kierra from A Pretty Thought wrote the first ever AGR guest post and I absolutely loved it. I have so much respect for denim, but spend so much of my life in skirts, dresses, and "fancy pants" that I've hardly given it much thought this summer beyond a chambray shirt. Luckily Kierra works in the denim industry (Hudson Jeans, anyone?!) so she was able to offer her expert advice on finding the perfect fit and style of jeans for YOU. And to top it off I got to write part 5 of my Blogger Confessions series as a guest post on her blog. I shared the tidbits of advice I've learned from being a small blogger and wanting to monetize in a big blogger world. You can check out my post on I've also partnered up with some amazing brands to create some fun content that you'll get to see around here veerryy soon :) I can't wait!

So now that you've heard about my life what's going on in yours? Anything fun happen? How about interesting? Or just plain weird? Let me know in the comments! I'd love to hear about all of you guys's awesome lives.
