Tennies! -They're all the rage at the moment. 
From the colorful tweed variety by Chanel, to New Balance and Nikes (according to her Instagram, Eva Chen sports these on the regular), this is the absolute comfiest trend to date. I'm in!

As the warm weather winds down, be QUICK! Pull every sandal, sundress, and swimsuit! We have the last bit of summer sun left to soak up.

Sayonara Summer + The Sights, Smells, and Noms of NYC

Purchase from CrazyMeds.us, one of the best (and most light-hearted) resources for information and reviews on prescription medicines for mental illness!

Hello there my gorgeous, rested, and tanned readers! I know some of those descriptors might not apply to all of you. Trust me, I'm the same.

Gorgeous?  *Blush*
Rested?  Somewhat.
Tanned?  Oy. Barely!

No. I don't have glowing, bronze skin and my sleep schedule's been messed up beyond repair (bring on the Melatonin...), but my summer was strangely both eventful and uneventful concurrently. It was overwhelming.

Truly, this has been one of the most difficult and distressing years in my existence. Since September of 2013, I've been starting and withdrawing from and starting, again several SSRIs and Anti-Psych medicines. I have been going through these horrible, alterations to my brain, body, and psyche. -All this action while still attending school! After a 7-year stint as my hypomanic self (on a concrete med regimen since '08), I dropped off to this vanilla, shut-in type person with a little bit of irritability, too. Ok, a LOT a bit, and accompanied by those kind of raging tantrums over spilt milk. I was withdrawing from Abilify and Lexapro. Like I said, those were my solid drugs since forever!
During my exciting getaway in hell, I usually sat in my room. If I was not sleeping because of unnecessary drowsiness caused by side-effects, I was most likely waiting to fall asleep or goofing around on my phone.

But, THANK GOD, have things turned around! 
Exhibit A: This weekend's trip to NYC...

I had some much-needed visits with friends, plus good eats morning, noon, and night. The only bummer was its unfortunate timing, just ten days shy of Fashion Week! :( Sad face.
