(Almost) Fired for Forgetfulness

Back when I first started my job, I was thrown into the world of social media marketing at work. I had no idea what to really expect, other than the fact that I’d get some cool pictures out of the experience. Monthly we would plan, style and execute shoots that ended up on the country’s …

Dirty Girls

Months back my Mom and sister committed to an all girls mud run, and usually this is something I would completely tear apart, but I decided to join them. Of course me joining them was infinitely more for the fear of missing out on a bonding experience that my mom and sister would have without …

Life with an (Un)Fashionable BF

I am very lucky to be in a happy relationship with my best friend (although he refuses to call me his). He is thoughtful, kind, funny (mostly to himself), generous and very personable. He is also fashionable, for the most part. Not to say that I am the biggest fashion guru on the planet, but …

Wide Legged Bandit

Just under two years ago I started a job at a new company, and though at first it seemed like a far reach from my personal style, I quickly began to drink the Koolaid, or even chug some might say. You see, my personal style BEFORE my new job was mostly all black and whatever …

The Rebirth of Rapunzel’s Reality

I originally started this blog because I needed to create something, in a time where I felt that I had nothing particularly special happening in my life. I mainly shared the misfortunate happenings that seemed to continuously occur to myself—a young, single and naive girl living in the city. Fast-forward to four years later, I’d …

Crying on the Inside, Broke on the Outside

As I sit here cuddled up in my bed on a Sunday afternoon, doing countless hours of reports for work (on my day off), it strikes me.. whats this all even about? I’m 22, working in retail, working to live, living with 3 roommates and having Ginger Ale for breakfast. Is this what being a …

Club Footed Freak

I’d like to apologize for my unexplained, extended absence from Rapunzel’s Reality. These past few months life has decided to pick up, now this doesn’t mean that embarrassing things don’t happen anymore, its more that I don’t have the time to write about them. But this most recent experience left me no choice but to …

Tears and Fears of Near Unemployment

Most of us by now can all understand the depressing roller coaster that is unemployment, and because I decided to document my broke-ass journey, your all aware of mine. For the past two and a half months I've been working at a clothing store that I've really come to enjoy, and would be quite upset …

Don’t Pay the Extras

To be perfectly honest, I don’t do much with my free time. Basically, my time when I’m not working is spent watching netflix or drinking cheap alcohol and pretend I’m saving money that way. Recently, I had a night off and was asked by my agency to be an extra in a music video. Now …

The 28 Realizations of an Independent Twenty-Something

1) coupons are useful 2) if you pay for electricity, sometimes you’d rather stick to your furniture than turn on your air conditioner 3) cheese is awfully expensive 4) eating sushi every night for a week for dinner, will make you tired of sushi 5) mac and cheese although homemade, isn’t as nutritious as you …
