I tend to be a walking contradiction: Despite my life often being a mess (in the best way possible!) I have an affinity for all things organization. Planners, calendars, stationery and the likes. I just can’t get enough! So I’m sure that you can imagine my thrill when I was introduced to an amazing site called Minted. It is a stationery site powered by a global community of designers, meaning that you get a name behind the amazing designs, and you can easily access all of the designs by your favorite designer! Minted offers a lot more than just stationery. Looking… View Post

I was lucky enough to be able to spend last weekend in Chicago, and it was an amazing experience. I was all on my own and I got to explore the city uninhibited, I met amazing people, and I went on my very first ‘big girl adventure’ and I now anticipate many more! Over the course of my stay I was shuttling back and forth between the city and my cousin’s apartment right outside DePaul University.

This weekend I got to do one of the coolest things I have ever done. I took off on what I dubbed my ‘big girl adventure’ and rode the train up to Chicago (by myself!) to walk in College Fashion Week.

She had grown up in Chicago and told me all about her childhood there and gave me recommendations about must see locations, where the best food is, and on… View Post

As promised, I am updating my goals list so I can share my progress with all of you! If you missed my last post, I presented you with a list of my top five goals to accomplish during my sophomore year of college. I am about two and a half months in now, and thought this would be a great time to check in! Buy a DSLR and learn how to use it. So….I said this one would be done by October 13th, or three days ago. And I’ve run into a little bit of a roadblock with this one. I have… View Post

As sad as I am to see the final remnants of summer slip away, I couldn’t be more excited for the fall. Between the leaves changing colors, comfy sweaters, and the quickly approaching holiday season, I have nothing to complain about. To top that off, I am obsessed with the fall 2014 trends. Say goodbye to the beachy vibes from the last season and welcome sleek and bold looks. On top of berry hued makeup and leather accents, there are so many hair trends to get excited about! In order to start experimenting with some of the latest hair trends, I got… View Post
