OOTD: Tall Boots Hide Hairy Legs

Get your coffee addict sweater HERE
Dark lipstick, a cheeky sweater, and knee high boots to mask the fact that I've stopped shaving several weeks ago. Yup, it's officially fall everyone!

For real though, how many of you ladies keep up with the shaving/waxing routine once colder weather sets in? I'm honestly curious! I'm lucky that my roommate understands. We're both way ahead of the game as far as No Shave November goes. You can expect some "Hairy Holidays" postcards from us this winter.

I've often thought about the whole body hair maintenance us ladies are expected to keep up on. Where did it start? Who decided that this should be the norm? How far back can we trace this practice? I'm debating making an assignment for myself and do a little paper investigating the history of this specific beauty trend.

If you have any knowledge on the subject please share in the comments!

"What's your type?"

“Hey Linda, what’s your type?” my roommate hollered out of her room at me.
The question took me off guard. I paused, no answer readily available.

Wait, what was my type? I racked my brain, trying to pin down what kind of guy I usually went for.

Let’s see there was the stereotypical jock I dated in high school. Tall, immature, but with captivating green-blue eyes. A generous helping of obsessiveness and jealousy came along with that dish unfortunately.
First boyfriends shouldn’t count, I shook my head, moving on. I was still figuring things out then.

Then there was the sweet musician I felt for sure I was in love with when I started college. Wavering at just an inch or two taller than I, he was about a whole foot shorter than the jock I'd dated beforehand. It hardly mattered though when a boy took you star gazing on rooftops.
But that was such a switch! They were nothing alike….

I recalled the shy artist I met during my first art class in college, and his sweet brown eyes. His quiet demeanor had suckered me in before boring me into ending things a few short months later.

Oh jeez Linda, do you even have a type?

Let’s see, then there was the adventurer. A friendship that confused us into trying something more before quickly realizing how unrealistic that was. His scrappy personality had me hiking up trails and trying new things all while laughing at his squirelly ways. I smile just recalling that blonde head bobbing up and down, waiting for me to catch up.

Ughhh, there’s practically no similar trait that ties any of these guys together!

I blush just thinking about Josh. That Caribbean fling had me dreaming about dark, tan muscles and light green eyes flecked with gold that ever so slightly veered towards feral. Almost hungry, if you will.

“You doesn't even matter,” I told her. “Don’t set me up with anybody.”

I don’t believe I have a type. Tall or short. Light or dark. Blue eyes or brown eyes. Heavy set or skinny. I think my track record proves that I don’t care. I enjoy getting to know people of all kinds – and if something happens, it happens. There are so many interesting facets to others that you get the opportunity to know, and it'd be a shame to overlook someone sheerly because they don't fit a certain "type" you picture in your mind.

But I mean, I'm not gonna say no if Don Benjamin asked me out, so there's that... ;)

Music Monday: The Chainsmokers

I'm not even going to bother doing a little write up on these guys. If you haven't heard of this dj duo, you've probably been living under a rock, and you need more help than just musical suggestions.

Sorry, I'm a little extra sassy today due to getting an unpleasant visit from every girl's favorite monthly visitor. Bleh. 

Now, take a listen to this awesome song (and fabulous cover by Connor Maynard I decided to throw in here) and excuse me, for I have chocolate to go hunt down.

5 Youtubers Worth Your Time

Okay, when I say "YouTuber", I mean someone who is making their living off of YouTube. Ergo fully qualifying them to be dubbed this term. So! Without further ado, these are 5 channels that I'm fully addicted to and find it worth my time to drop everything when they upload just to watch.

If you don't know who Claire is, I highly recommend you grab yourself some popcorn and settle in for a binge session. Claire Marshall is #GOALS to me. Seriously. How can one human being be so inspiring, down-to-earth, and unbearably cool? Yes. UNBEARABLY. I almost can't stand it. I'm straight up fangirling, but I adore this YouTuber so much and her editing style is perfection. She avoids cliche editing styles that I see all over YouTube. It's always unique and never over the top. Her attention to detail is marvelous, and you can really sense that in  all of her videos. She vlogs, covers beauty topics (hello, she's a freelance makeup artist so of course), and occasionally does fashion videos! 

Okay, surely you've heard of Casey. He's practically an iconic vlogger, with his channel boasting over 5 million subscribers. And I'm definitely one of them. There's something about his video content that's captivating. He leads an exciting life and is based in New York, and his success allows him to take these adventurous trips around the world. 

This duo is soooo fun to travel with - and I say that like I have, because it feels like it thanks to their vlogs! These two started traveling while in college, and their motto "Shut up and go" has brought them quite the success. Their chemistry as best friends, playful personalities, and thirst for adventure always makes their videos a sheer pleasure to watch! 

4. Helen Anderson

I only recently started watching Helen, but she's already turned into an all time favorite. She's bold, unabashedly herself, and has killer style. Plus, she has a British accent, so who doesn't love that?

5. Megan Batoon

This girl is an absolute riot. I adore Megan's channel because it's chock full of terrible puns, many witty vlogs, and incredible dancing. Megan Batoon is also part Filipino, so, you know...#pinoypride and all that! But seriously, this is one talented, hard working chick who also knows how to stay real and keep the laughs rolling.

Who are some of your favorite Youtubers? I'm always on the lookout for fun channels!
