Borderline or highly sensitive?

Many people will deal with some sort of mental illness throughout their lives. Unfortunately, many times they get misdiagnosed by the doctors themselves and may be led to believe they are suffering from a specific mental condition when in reality there are many different factors that may make them feel a certain way.

Many people get diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, the majority of them get diagnosed around their late teens or early adulthood. This is critical since at this age most people haven't mentally developed fully and might still feel emotional instability, which is completely normal.

Some people are more sensitive then others and tend to feel things more intensely. It's safe to add that some people are also more aware to the world surrounding them and to little details that other people may not even take to consideration. Many highly sensitive people would be able to admit that they feel "too much", or over think and over analyze certain situations that might even seem irrelevant to others.

To give a more clear idea of Borderline Personality Disorder, here are a few common symptoms:


  • Fear of abandonment 
  • Unstable relationships
  • Unclear or unstable self image
  • Extreme emotional swings
  • Stress related paranoid thoughts  
Now looking at these symptoms, a lot of them could occur to any human being with or without a mental disorder. Such as fear of abandonment or stress related paranoid thoughts could be caused by something that took place in the past and results with a certain behavior pattern that we use as a coping mechanism.
This does not mean that people with borderline personality disorder should be ashamed of it in any way, but often times they are made to believe that their feelings and emotions are not valid and are only a part of their disorder. It could be extremely confusing for someone with borderline personality disorder to differentiate traits of the disorder to actual emotions that come up due to certain situations in life.

Out For The Weekend- Mom Jeans & Reebok

This past weekend I went out for a fun afternoon in the old city of Jaffa.
I wanted to show you guys to ways I style a vintage pair of Levi's 501, aka "The Mom Jeans".

The first outfit is more on the girly side. The olive green ribbed top is from Topshop. The floral kimono is from Forever 21, and it gives the outfit a bohemian vibe. The sunnies are from a thrift store, down south in Atlanta, and the shoes are classic Reeboks.












The second outfit is for the edgier and grungier girls out there. I decided to give the "Denim on Denim" trend a try and I actually liked it. I think the trick with mixing denim is to make sure to pair different shade and washes to make it work. My denim jacket is my mom's vintage jacket straight out of the 80's. My top is from forever 21, and my weed necklace is one that I got from the flea market.















Hope you guys enjoyed this post, and you can comment what styling&fashion posts you would like to see next <3

Styles For Less

Hey friends! So today I wanted to do another post about dupes. But unlike my previous post that was about makeup dupes, this time it's going to be fashion steals for a lot less! I don't want to use the word dupe for this fashion items because a lot of the cheaper versions are actually good quality.
I chose to bring some pieces that are pretty popular and timeless and tried to find cheaper alternatives.

1. UNIF HOLOGRAPHIC BACKPACK 98$

*Cheaper alternative : Ebay holographic backpack 30$

*Cheaper alternative: Asos Bag 63$

Why pay 3250$ when you can pay 60$?
