I’m basic. I like Gilmore Girls, Starbucks, The Twilight Saga, fuzzy slippers, cookie scented candles, and all things autumn.
I am confused as to why so many females out there are denying their inner basic babe.
What’s to be ashamed of? Being basic makes it socially acceptable to have pumpkin everything.
Pumpkin is not overrated, I don’t care what you say. You can put it in, on, under just about any food or beverage and it’s a fallgasm in your mouth.
It’s time, ladies. Embrace the beauty of the basic.

Absolutely adore your writing style. It’s like you’re legit reading my mind sometimes.. I’m a self confessed basic ‘babe’ (loving you’re politeness, btw) & personally cannot wait to unashamedly embrace the pumpkin. Haters gon’ hate!
p.s. Please tell me you’ve got instagram. Dem vsco snaps would be right at home on instagram!
Your comments have made my whole day! What a doll, you are. I haven’t let my blog/instagram worlds collide yet, but I do believe you’ve given me the confident boost I need to do so! Do you have one? I’d love to follow on my personal account until I get another up & running! Thank you for your words!
I feeeeel ya. Mine consists of an outrageous number of birds-eye snaps of sushi and FAR too many shots of avocado, if that sounds like your kind of thing! I’m also trying to balance the whole being-a real-person and being a foodie at the same time. I think your instagram would be an absolute delight to gawk at. Good luck! http://instagram.com/marshingtons?modal=true
