Beginnings are hard and usually messy-- or at least they are for me. I can no longer count on my fingers the amount of times I have embarrassed myself at the beginning of something new, and I am in no doubt that this blog will be added to that countless list of times. But here I am, nonetheless, trying something new. 

So, Striped Intentions. I had a little go at this whole thing back in the summer, but things fell a little flat. A few months later, I'm back; now holding new intentions--striped ones no less-- of sharing my life for you and for future me. I guess the reason why they're striped in the first place is for two reasons: I love linguistics-- and really just words in general-- and am fascinated by word usage that is technically incorrect but grammatically sound:"Colorless green ideas sleep furiously", anyone? The linguist inside of me chuckles at the thought of intentions being striped, which, of course, is not possible, but is still correct grammatically. Otherwise, it's mostly a play on the fact that while most of the time my intentions are good, every once in a while I may slip and be a bit malicious and vengeful or whatever. We all do it! I'm just admitting it. 

Anyway, here's what you should expect: I love style and beauty (seriously, you should see my vanity), but I'm also a student and a television junkie and a million other things.  I like weird words and semi colons and dashes-- get used to those-- and taking pictures of the sky and my food. Expect a lot of food. I think this little blog is going to be a mish-mash of everything that I am, and I'm okay with that! 

If you like what you see I'd love for you to follow along for the ride. Who knows where I'll go! I do exist elsewhere on the internet, InstagramTwitter, and Pinterest, namely-- and the latter of which I am all over lately. 

Thank you for reading-- I so appreciate it!

Profile Bio

Striped Intentions is laying on your bed, soaking in the sunlight. It's the shadows made by the blinds, lined up and down the sheets. It's wearing a striped shirt every day and not giving a damn. It's the constant search for "effortless chic"-- whatever that is-- and taking care of what you present to the world.
Too, Striped Intentions is a place to feel at home. No matter what you look like or feel like or do with your life, it's a space to appreciate life and all it's tiny details. It's having the best intentions with everything-- as striped with flaws as they may be.
