one year of | treschic!

got the last bit of daylight with these photos! I literally got out of the shower and took these.

Last year in a spur of the moment after christmas boredom I created treschic. I never expected anything, just a little hobby that I could do in my free time. I never expected how much I would love blogging and just the whole blog world in general. There are so many amazing blogs that I follow and nothing inspires my style more than all the amazing bloggers of who's blogs I read every day. I couldn't be happier with starting my blog a year ago today. It was one of the best decisions to this date. So thank you, thank you to my followers for following me, and thank you to the people who I follow for being so gosh darn inspiring and cool. 

To year number two of treschic!

I'm on break and loving every minute of not having to do anything

I am finding out of focus pictures of the Christmas tree better than focused ones 

I'm wishing for a white Christmas, when in reality thats not going to happen 

I have been sleeping in until around 11 and I have no idea when come january third I am going to be able to get out of bed at seven 

I've finished all my Christmas shopping! 

I have my temps! YAY.

I now have one hour out of the 50 required driving hours to get your license

I'm really wanting this camera.. does anyone have it? Is it a good camera? It's cheaper than the d3100 so thats a plus..

new. york. city.

times square
safe to say that I spent a fair amount of time on this street..

aaabbbbbssssssss <3 abercrombie models

yes, that would be the saks fifth avenue
statue of liberty 


9/11 memorial 

New York was amazing. I had never been before. We went at such a good time because it wasn't too cold but all the Christmas decorations were up. 5th avenue is truly captivating. We mostly went shopping.. YAY haha my dad was not as enthusiastic as we were. I may or may not have bought four sweaters in two days...

All in all it was truly amazing in a dizzying kind of way.

'e pluribus unum' - 'out of many one'

United States of America. A country. My country. A place that I love, no matter how many times I say I want to live somewhere else. America is such a great place, even though I may be biased. Our motto e pluribus unum 'out of many one', is such a true statement, so many different people coming together as one, thats what America is. We're still a young country, but we've gotten through a lot and we won't forget, we can't forget. Never in my life have I felt so patriotic, just going to DC (albeit, it was my fourth time), seeing all of those monuments, made me realize, USA is a place to be proud of living in. 

I thought about deleting the above paragraph. I don't know.. These last two months have just been kinda off. So much work so little time. Agh. Next wednesday and thursday I have 3 tests and two papers due, fun stuff I tell you, fun stuff. Did average on the PSAT. Darn I need to learn how to care again.

the power of a compliment

"word |wərd|nouna single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed."

But a word can be so much more. A bad word can cut you like a knife and a good word can turn your day from bad to good. 

And thats why I believe in the power of a compliment. Recently, I have decided to leave nice messages for people on their tumblrs or formsprings or whatever. Being nice just to be nice, good idea right? Yes, it was such a good idea. Just the possibility that I might make someones day and turn their frown into a smile is enough for me to take five or ten minutes of my day to write them a nice note. 

It's the holiday season, and as far as I'm concerned, that's the best gift that I could ever give to someone. 


p.s. these pictures are just some pictures I have taken lately, I haven't had any time for outfit pictures unfortunately. I just went to new york and dc so be expecting pictures from there!

a life is a life no matter how small

shirt - forever 21
skirt - nordstrom(bp)
jacket - gap outlet
shoes - DSW (steve madden)

It really puts things in perspective. Scary, almost, it's an unfathomable number, 5,795,780,847; I couldn't even picture one hundredth of that number. It's so weird how the earth is such a huge place but most of its inhabitants are confined to a small section of it and hardly ever travel to many other places.

I believe in travel. I believe that everyone should have at least one meaningful travel experience in their life. Traveling changes you, it takes you out of your comfort zone and you have to expand your horizons. Its crazy how me, someone who likes to have everything under control and the same, enjoys travel, where so many things are out of your control and it's a different every day. 

It's safe to say I'll love traveling forever,
I've caught the bug,
and it's not going away anytime soon;
World here I come.


P.S. does anybody know anything about ? I got an invitation to be a part of it and I want to make sure it's legit.

Australia: highlights

1.) At the Sydney Aquarium. iPhone photo, oh yes!
2.) Sand at some beach haha
3.) Sunset at a beach near by the to the previously mentioned beach 
4.) Ohmygosh so cliche Australian -- pulled over on the side of the road to get a picture..
5.) Leaves, ahh so tropical
6.) At the Great Barrier reef, I have NEVER seen water so blue, it was absolutely beautiful 
7.) Sydney Harbour Bridge
8.) Manly Beach
9.) View from our hotel room in Cairns
10.)  Low tide in Cairns (love this picture)

Australia was the most amazing experience that I have had in a while. Was it hard? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely. It still feels so surreal, it was the experience of a lifetime. I conquered so many fears on this trip it's crazy. 
Plane Bathrooms.
Plane food. (not quite over this one..)
Going into the unknown.
Things being out of my control.
Eating new foods.
Leaving my family. 
and many more.

To say that it was just myself getting me through these things, would be a complete and utter lie.
Written while still in Australia:
"Most people would say that doing something they didn't think they could do and overcoming their fears would make them realize just how strong they are. I, however, beg to differ that statement. In fact, I have found it to be quite the opposite. Now before you stop reading this thinking that it will be a post about me complaining about how hard it was, don't, because its not. Not at all. Actually this post is about how I, a fifteen year old girl who has anxiety and has never been away from home for more than a week, was able to travel halfway around the world and live with a host family for a month. It's about how someone who used to cry and have a panic attack every single time she got on a plane was able board her 15 hour flight with hardly any fear at all. But most importantly it is about how I had the realization of just how powerful my God is. 

Now I'll try not to make it too preachy or anything, but I really feel that God has moved me to write a post telling about this experience. And who knows, this might even bring someone to him, I might make an influential difference in someone else's life.
Traveling halfway around the world with no one but a peer at age 15, is not exactly a piece of cake and I knew that from the gate. But the one difference is that I knew that even though I wouldn't have my mom and dad with me, I would have God. I have known since the young age of five, when I became a born again Christian, that God has and always will be with me. But it wasn't until this trip that I really started to see everything that he had laid out before me. When I got accepted to this trip my mom realized that God had been preparing me for this ever since fifth grade (age 10) when my teachers daughter was in Australia and we heard all about it. That truly is amazing. Even back then, five years ago, before I went to my current school, God knew that I would be going to Australia."

It's weird how something could be right in front of you and you wouldn't notice it. That is truly what happened to me -- crazy, I know. 

Australia was the best experience of my life, and I will never forget it.

P.S. My exchange student comes in 41 days! :) sooo excited
