Fall Trends

I'm without an outfit post for you dolls but I will have one soon (hopefully).

One thing that I'd like to try doing is I'd like to take a picture of what I'm wearing for each day I go to school throughout one week. Essentially, I'd just like to show what I do to make my all-black outfit more personalized.

Today's post title pretty much explains what this post is about...  I've been obsessed with the fall trends that have popped up in magazines and online, so I figured I would do some searching on my two favorite online stores, Forever 21 + and Asos Curve, to find some affordable plus size options. I've come up with some collages made on polyvore to showcase pieces that I'm dying to have, and that seem to fall in line with this season's trends.

Fall Trend - Feminine Prints

Fall Trend - Romantic Rosette

Fall Trend - Gothic Plum
Fall Trend - Black and Gold

Thanks for the reading, hope you have some fun fall shopping!

Lookat this, a new post, so soon after my last one!!

It's all because of my dedication to the cause, my friends. The cause? Keeping this up so that I can have something for myself.

To be honest, I've gone through many stages in the blogging world.
- At first, when I started this blog, it was a distant dream of something that I could hope to keep up.
- Sadly, that didn't work out. Almost a year later, I picked it up again. During this time, Ja Ja Jules was just something that I kept private, hidden from everyone except for my sister.
- I decided after a few blog entires to go public with my friends. Once I published the blog on Facebook, it started to become a goal to get a certain number of readers. I was preoccupying myself with reading on the internet how to gain money from advertisements, sponsors, and how to increase traffic flow. This built stress and led to disappointment when I just didn't have the time to market myself and my blog as a brand.

Now, it's just all about me. Fuck the stats. I have a blog, bitches. I'm a funny blogger who doesn't take myself too seriously. I don't have to answer to anyone, and that is what makes me happy. Don't get me wrong; if you like to blog and enjoy marketing yourself, finding your niche, getting sponsors and free products, good for you. It's just not right for me at this time of my life.

Anyway, onto the outfit! I wore this when my boyfriend and I went out for supper for his birthday. It was belated, as he works away and wasn't home for his actual birthday. I felt very confident in this, since I kept with my normal casual-feel while getting a little dressy with some high wedges and bright-red lips.

peplum top: asos. jeans: old navy (old). clutch: aldo (old). wedges: spring (similar). watch: nixon (similar). necklace: urban outfitters.

Figured I'd finish this not-so-serious-yet-personal post with a laugh:

Until next time,


Note: Yes my hair is a few inches shorter. No it was not planned. Oh, how interesting is attending my first month of Hair Dressing School.

Yeah, it's me, trying to act casual after an unexpected month-long hiatus. I feel like this is a little awkward... kind-of as if I'm calling up an old flame, trying to play it cool, seeing if we can re-connect or something. I'm obviously not good at this considering I've been happily involved for the past three years. I have mad love for the blogging community and have enjoyed having a month of just reading blogs and getting used to school, but now I'm ready to rekindle that fi-yah. (Yes... fi-yah.)

The pictures I'm sharing today were taken a while ago, I've just been too busy to post. Just a casual karaoke night out with friends, in which I sang an amazing song by Tenacious D and got the whole bar singing with me simply because of the awesomeness that was the song. One hundred points to whoever guesses what song it was!

shirt: asos (old) [similar]. bracelet: urban outfitters. earrings: aldo. clutch: forever 21 (old). leggings: joe fresh. shoes: urban outfitters.


The pictures were taken on my beautiful balcony with more apartment buildings in the background. The view facing the other way is much more spectacular, but you get an awkward glare on the window from our door. 

As for an update on my living situation, Vancouver has been treating me well, I love the big city as I thought I would. I do, however, miss my friends and family and my home land like crazy. Newfoundland is such a beautiful place and it is killing me to spend my favorite season (FALL) away from home.

School is amazing but I don't want to bore you with details on that.

Be prepared for another post soon, I have pictures cropped, edited and ready to go.
