Linen At The Sea

Guilty! These photos were taken over Christmas break. Yep, you heard me right....Christmas break!!! It's practically a week away from Easter. How have I waited this long to share these with you all. I'm as clueless as you are. I figured since we all have summer on our mind, you wouldn't mind seeing some beach pictures. Don't mind my natural hair that would not stay put due to the wind. That's the beach for you though.

I'm usually not the one to complain, but I just have to get something off my chest. I've had one hell of a week with three tests, but that's not why I'm upset; I'm emotional because of this one project. The gist of this group project was to research trends in society, fill out a table, and create a mood board. I spent hours upon hours of research for this project including multiple hours designing the layout for the mood board. I was proud of what me and my group came up with. Little did I know that I would get the worst negative feedback in my entire life; I'm not even exaggerating. I can handle critism when someone doesn't approve of something or when they disagree about one of my opinion/statements. What I can't handle is when someone assumes something of me when I know for a fact that it's not true. And that's exactly what my professor did; she made an assumption about us. It also upsets me that I felt like I let my team down. I was so proud and passionate about what we created, and in a way it was all for nothing because someone didn't see it through our point of view. 
Enough about my ranting, and more about my life. If you've been following my blog for the last couple of months, you would know that I've been doing monthly resolutions for 2017. March was all about skincare. I wanted to get into a routine to prevent me from sleeping with my makeup on. I've been pretty good about having a set routine. My skin has randomly been going crazy the past two weeks or so. I'm not sure what that's all about. I don't think it's the products because I've been using the same ones for months and months. So hopefully it's just something to do with the seasons and clears up soon. I'll keep y'all updated about that. 

And for my resolution for April is to use my planner. I always start off strong with using it the first month or so of class, but then get out of the habit of it. I find myself much more organized and productive for the day when I utilize. Plus, it's extremely helpful for blogging. So I'm going to make it a conscious effort to take it out in every class and make a to-do list for the day.

  2. Hi Kate, love these photos even if they were taken over Christmas break. And I agree with you- using a planner always helps to be on time and not to forget anything. I also use one.

  3. This looks like such a pretty place to be for December! I also love your top!

  5. That really sucks that your professor made a negative assumption about you and your team. I hope it all works out!

    Your photos are beautiful. Now I want to go on vacation. -_- Haha

  6. Such a cute look! And sorry for what you went though with a professor, we've all been there sometime. Stay strong! ♥

  7. That's so unfair Kate, people at least should acknowledge when things are done with care and effort (which most of the times shows!) even if not on board with the ideas being presented. I hope this is a one off thing and doesn't put you off from keeping creative and passionate about what you do.

    Happy hump-day, lovely girl!
