Originally, I was stuck on figuring out what to pair my new python leggings with until I randomly found this top to make the outfit more flattering. Then, I coincidentally had studded boots to match! The photos came out better than I thought so props to my photographer. I am so excited to go to Greece this coming Saturday, on the 9th, and if you want to join me on my adventures, be sure to follow my Instagram @aetherlily. I will do my best to make a few blog posts and videos so watch out for those too! I know the days are going to fly by fast but I will be making the best of it.

Thank you for the comments on my last post! I will reply back to you all so be sure to leave your links.

Happy 1st of August, everyone! I honestly wish there was a faster way for my to edit photos and publish posts so when I am on-the-go so I don't have to go crazy and get frustrated over how slow the process takes me. I recently discovered eShakti, a website that allows you to buy customized clothing. I had the chance to choose out this dress and send my measurements along with it! It came out very pretty. The skirt was very snug but the top was loose. I think it is because I estimated on my chest measurements so make sure you take the time to use a measuring tape when sending them your measurements. Overall, the quality is great and I plan to take it to Greece with me! I paired it with one of my favorite colorful necklaces and my most recent shoe purchase. There are a lot of things I want to get done before I leave for Greece but I hope to get at least one or two more outfits posts in before then.

Hey guys! No, this is not an outfit post. I wanted to write a personal post about my personal life, and what I would like to continue doing with this blog. I just turned 23 this week, which is why I have not posted recently because I have been spending time with friends and family. Summer has been zooming by but I hope to be able to do as much as I can before I go back to being a second year full-time graduate student. Thank you to those who have been sticking around and following my blog! It really makes me happy to know there are people like you who appreciate and read my blog. I know there are tons of blogs out there just like mine but I am just doing what I love. Aetherlily has given me a creative outlet and something to do during my spare time. Yet at the same time, I want it to be a place where I can share my thoughts and communicate with you guys out there. I feel like I have lost some of that after the first year I began this blog.

Therefore, I wanted to take the time to make this post and hear your opinions and thoughts. Just post in the comments section of this post or hashtag #aetherlilychat on Twitter! I will reply back to you guys so we can get a conversation going. It can be about anything! I have been on a make-up shopping spree because I have been so into make-up lately. Let me know your recommendations! The products pictured above are some of my recent purchases that I currently use. They are mostly drugstore brands or from Sephora because I need to stay affordable. I actually went over my budget because I was trying to save money for my trip to Greece next month! So excited. Have any of you been there before? I also just made a Youtube account because I wanted to expand my posts via video whether its my outfits, make-up, DIY projects, and especially travels. I love travelling and I want to be able to share my experiences and tips I learn along the way with you all. You can check out my Intro video I just posted a couple days ago or watch below!

Thank you again for visiting and listening to my rambles. I may make more of these personal posts in the future so I hope you all do not mind them. =)
