Links and Thoughts

I came across these links while visiting my list of daily blogsss and I just had to share because there is self love fevaaa and I'm just lovins it.
Two of these have lists of things you can do for yourself to achieve self love, and I'm going to do everything on them! I especially need to do the thing about spending time alone, because I haven't done that since I was little.
Came across this one via the lovely lady at

And these came from

And for FUN These body harnesses are hella cool.

I wish I knew how to make the links clickable on a word, but I'm not that computer savvy. Sigh.
Perhaps if I google it I can figure it out, but I probably won't.
I still want to do some outfit posts but I haven't taken any pictures. One day I will.

A couple more things...

I came across this photo/quote on pinterest and it made me smile. Perhaps the most beautiful woman who ever existed, was also wise.

On another random note: Working in clothing retail is sometimes REALLY challenging because some older women think that EVERYTHING in their outfit has to match perfectly, like pants, shirt, ect. has to be the same exact color. I just don't think that way and when I try to help them find things to GO WITH the things they've already picked out, they just look at me like I'm crazy when I say a deep red top would look good with their chocolate brown jacket. I dunno, I guess I hadn't thought about how much fashion "rules" have changed since they were young.

Trunks N' Treasures

Sooooo there is a lady here that finds handbags, clutches, suitcases, makeup cases, and other goodies and she PAINTS THEM. She's absolutely ahhmaahhhzing. Here is what she painted for me!!/trunksntreasures

Isn't it GORGEOUS? I'm very pleased with it. I just asked her to do a peacock feather and some swirlies, and it turned out waaayyy better than I expected.

So, as I said a few days ago that my skin was breaking out and it was totally bumming me out. BUUUT, it has since cleared up and I've been feeling pretty good about myself. It probably also has something to do with the fact that I bought a dress yesterday that I tried on a couple months ago and now I have to take it back because it's too big. Nothing like needing a smaller size to make a girl feel good about herself.

On a random note, I've been waiting for a package from a friend who lives in Japan and it hasn't gotten here yet and I'm getting antsy! :-/

Well goodnight!

Have been sooooo busy!

It's been crazy busy the last few days, I haven't been able to get on the computer at all.
I had been feeling pretty good about myself lately until I woke up and my face totally broke out, the worst I had ever seen it. But I tried to counter that badness with some goodness, so I wore extra cute outfits and it made me feel a bit better. BUUUT, I really wanted to do an outfit post on every single one of those days, but the weather and busy-ness did not let that happen.
One of these days, I will do an outfit post. ALSO, I did an awesome DIY which I will post sometime this week.

A few things about me and my plans for this blog.

I am no great typist. I type just like I talk, and I tend to ramble and lose my train of thought.
This blog is not a place for me to fish for compliments or to whine about my crappy self image. This is a place for me to let my creative juices flow and a challenge to get out of my comfort zone and get to a place where I can truly love myself.
Okay, a little back story:
A little over a year ago I hated everything about my appearance. I was overweight and miserable and depressed a lot. I went on a VERY strict diet and lost about 50 pounds and I felt much much much better about myself. I'm still not where I want to be with my weight loss, but I'm in a better place than I was back then.
To those of us who have not always done so, being okay with and even loving who you are (inside and out) is a process. I want this to be a learning experience for me to get out of my "funk" and be a full and happy person and to MAYBE, JUST MAYBE be an inspiration for people who are in a place where they judge themselves on an impossible set of standards and just be okay with "me"

Okay, I'm done rambling.

With Love,
Chelsei Cheesecake
BTW Chelsei Cheesecake was a nickname my uncle gave me when I was little and it stuck with me. 

Hello there!

I've been wanting to start a blog for quite a while now, but have been wary about it. BUT, then I thought, "What the hell?" So here I am.
Because I read a few handfuls of blogs on a daily basis, I have tons of inspiration and absolutely no know-how. SOOOOO bare with me.

Things you can expect to see here:
Reminders to myself and others who have a problem with self love.
Outfit posts showcasing my fashion sense, or lack there of, depending on your opinions.
Things that I sew, knit, braid, glue, cook, or otherwise conjure up.
Anything else I deem worthy of recognition
