Tomboy at heart

I feel like I've always been a tomboy at heart.
I grew up climbing trees, racing my bike around the block, and playing football with the neighborhood kids (I was a bomb receiver). I didn't really know about makeup or hair until I was in high school and my idea of dressing up was wearing a pair of jeans that didn't have any tears or scuffs on them (and trust me, they were not the intentional fashiony kind of destruction).

Honestly, if you had told 13-year-old Ariel that she'd become a fashion blogger one day, I would've laughed in your face...and then ran away dribbling a basketball or something.

Because of my childhood roots, I feel like I sometimes gravitate towards "tomboy-chic" outfits. Don't get me wrong, I still love dressing up in a cute top and fitted jeans, but there is something nostalgic about wearing an oversized hoodie and a snapback that takes me back simpler times.

Today I have RoundSquare to thank for my nostalgic outfit! They're a new and upcoming company that offers super chill merchandise, like beanies and caps. One of their mottos is "What's your angle?" because they believe that embracing our differences is what makes us each uniquely special. We all see the world in our own "angles" and they want you to express that! They don't currently have a website yet, but it's in the works and in the meantime, you can follow them along on Instagram at roundsquareco!

Any fun plans for the weekend?
I'm sensing some Netflix and fast food in my near future.
And I'm usually always right.

Cheers.

Happy Birthday Mumsy

Today is the most important day of the year.
It's the day my mom was born.

Everything I have in my life, I owe to this woman.
Because without her, I wouldn't have existed at all.

I love you mom!
Hope your day is wonderful and amazing, just like youuuuu.

love, Ariel.

On thin ice...

What's going through my mind in every single one of these pictures:

"PLEASE DON'T DROP THROUGH THE SNOW PLEASE DON'T DROP THROUGH THE SNOW..."

This old patch of snow that I so geniusly wanted to take pictures on had certain..."soft" spots.
I literally had to tip toe on it praying that I wouldn't drop through whatever feet of snow was underneath. It already happened to me twice while walking to this spot and it was terrifying (Lauren can testify). It wasn't really the dropping through that was terrifying--it was the not knowing if I would drop through or not. I would take a step, wait a couple seconds to see if I would drop, then do it all over again.

Basically, I risked my life for you guys.
You're welcome.

Also, I realize I wasn't technically standing on "thin ice," so my post title doesn't make sense.
But naming it "On thin snow..." just didn't sound as dramatic.
So ice it is.

PS. How CUTE is this golden locket from Made By Maru?
It's still empty but I'm planning on putting a little itty bitty picture of Connor and Samson in it. :)

How are you guys liking The Bachelor this season?

My current favorite: Kaitlyn.

Which is funny because she's the one that left the worst impression on me on the first night.
I just love how she was able to roll with the punches... err I mean cob... on their one-on-one date. She has an amazing (ca-ching) sense of humor and seems a lot more real to me than most of the girls.

My favorite moment:
I rewound and replayed this moment about 20 times because I could not stop laughing at her reaction.
Also, WHY IS SHE STILL IN THE RUNNING?
They hardly showed her in this week's episode so obviously the producer's could care less if she's on the show anymore. If Chris is legitimately interested in this psycho chick... he needs some help.

Who are your favorite girls so far??
It's anyone's game at this point...
No really, pretty sure Chris has kissed 85% of the girls already and it's only Week 3.
It's ANYONE'S game.
Even crazy Ashley S.

Have a great Wednesday, friends!

Cheers.
