ugg-ly.



Maybe it's just me, but I really do not like the UGG trend. 



Is it even a trend anymore? I mean, it has been years since people have been wearing these overpriced cloth boots. So is it now considered a new winter staple? Do UGG's fit in to the same category now as winter sweaters and scarves?




Personally I think that they are ugly (UGGly) boots that have become culturally acceptable to wear out in public due to the comfort they serve the wearer. I would just rather spend my 170 bucks on a pair of riding boots or those lovely fringe boots that I have been talking about. They actually kind of remind me of Pooh Bears feet. 


What do you think? Maybe I'm crazy.

Hello, hello! I’m China. I am a full time college student as well as being a Division 1 athlete in softball.

I love being creative and being able to craft my own things makes me so happy! I have recently opened an Etsy shop that I am very proud of and I look forward to expanding my products that are made with love. I can’t wait to meet some fellow bloggers who share my same interests and love for pretty things!

winter knits. the good and the bad.


Well, it is getting a little nippity out. I look outside in the morning and there is frost on the windshield of my car. Fun right? (Sense my sarcasm?) 

So with the cold, wintery weather coming around it is now time to get in to the warmer, snuggley clothes. That means knits. (I am using a lot of adverbs today, aren't I? Geesh.)

Knit sweaters, knit scarves, knit ear warmers, knit leggings.

That also means potential fashion DISASTER. Or fashion love. Here is your go-to guide with what not to wear this winter, and what to wear. (At least when it comes to knits) Enjoy.




First off - Don't wear this. "But Rach, it is so cute!" No, no it's not.




Chain Scarves. I love knit scarves, but not this. It just doesn't work.




The infamous ugly sweater. This is only acceptable at ugly sweater parties. 




Knit Necklace - Ahhh. Cozy, right? 







Okay, okay. Now on to the cute stuff. Are you excited? I am.


Ear Wamers. My favvvvvv. 




Socks. 




Over-sized sweaters. A definite winter staple. Mmh.





Okay, I want these leggings so bad.




And of course you can't forget the lovely scarves! 




What is your favorite (or least favorite) winter knit?

I wish for all of the loved ones I have that are sick, to get cured or to get better.


I wish to someday be successful.


I wish for a new mastif puppy. (I love puppies with big paws.)


I wish to go to the college of my choice.


I wish to keep the wonderful relationships I have now forever.


I wish to someday meet God.

No matter how silly or how sentimental. I want to know, I want to see what my friends are wishing for. :)
