Is this another post of a girl wearing eyeglasses just because? 
No, in fact I don't have the best vision- I'm just another near-sighted human walking on this earth.
 I got my first pair of glasses when I was 13 years old. I remember going in for my eye test thinking "oh dear, I'm going to be the loser with glasses at school." Now I can't get enough of them. I own a few pairs that I will coordinate with my outfit from time to time. 
When I discovered these TUESDAY-L clear glasses from Coastal Eyewear, I knew I had to have a pair. I've always been a huge fan of clear frames but for some strange reason, I thought they would look odd on my face/skin tone... But let me tell you, I haven't been more obsessed with a pair of glasses in my life. I guess you can say I have to force myself not to wear them going to bed as well.

Four day weekend is over... BRING BACK THE WEEKEND PLEASE! Missing the endless amount of sun, fireworks, pool time and delicious BBQ immensely. For this relaxing day back to work, I've been knee deep in LANY's new album and Lostboycrow's new tune. Whenever new music is released, I get into this weird zone where I just want to block out the world and just inhale every song and listen deeply to the lyrics in a quiet setting. I bet a lot of people reading this, thinks it's weird but it's just something that I love to do. 
Add these babes to your summer playlist and I promise you, you'll be jamming out 24/8.

Abbot Kinney is one of the most magical places in LA. There is a ton of art everywhere, the cutest restaurants and boutiques and just so much character on one street, that has you coming back to that side of town consistently. You can definitely get a ton of inspiration wandering around Abbot Kinney. Even the alleyways are a piece of art. When Ashley and I stumbled upon this "blue infested" alleyway, we couldn't get enough of it. It was just hues of blue everywhere. One of the walls even had a bright rainbow that I was obsessed with... Talk about A LOT of boomerangs made here for Instagram after we discovered this little gem. It's amazing how much beauty you could find wandering down one magical alleyway and especially exploring the streets of Abbot Kinney.

The vibrant sun, the feeling of slurping down an iced cold lemonade while digging your feet in the warm sand on the beach and listening to the waves crash = heaven. 
Also laying out on your beach towel and chatting away with your favorite babes as the sun kisses your skin, what can be better than that? Nothing in my opinion. There's no other paradise like throwing on your favorite swimsuit and making your way down to the beach for a r&r kind of a day. Not only am I ready for another beach day this memorial weekend but I'm ready to hit the beach everyday this summer in my Faithful Strappy Monokini from

I wanted to chat a little bit about confidence and self love.
Being 23 years old and living in Los Angeles, trying to create a name for yourself in the fashion/lifestyle blogging world has taken a bittersweet toll on me mentally and physically. 
I'm sure almost everyone has felt like this in their life at one point but I wanted to share my story with you guys.

I started "darkmintdaisy" about three and a half to four years ago, and for awhile I was comparing myself to other babes in the industry. (How come I don't have enough followers as them? I've been blogging longer or no one likes my style or I need to post four times a day everyday because everyone else is doing it and etc.) All of these negative feelings start to take over your body and soul and you start to put yourself down. I wanted to get rid of my entire closet because I felt like an outsider with my outfit choices that I would upload on social media. I would scroll through endless amounts of posts on Instagram and just compare myself to others. 

Until one day, I had to snap myself out of it. I needed to stop spreading negativity in my life. Once I stopped comparing myself to others, I felt ALIVE again. I dressed however I felt whenever I felt and posted whatever I felt whenever I felt. Once you find out who you truly are and stop comparing yourself to others, it is an indescribably feeling. Do whatever you want, whenever you want. Don't let anyone stop you from your dreams and most importantly, wear whatever makes YOU feel good babe!

And speaking of wearing whatever makes you feel amazing... One of my favorite pieces in my closet right now is this graphic tee from I adore the cut out in this top and am obsessed with the fact that you can see the details of the bralette that I paired this outfit with.
Throw on some color tinted shades and ripped jeans and this outfit is EASILY one of my favorite looks, because not only do I feel confident in it but I'm feeling like a badass babe as well.
