Friday Favorites


Y'all, I can't believe how quickly the weather changed again this week. It was a beautiful 50 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday, and then this morning I woke up to several inches of snow! Can it just be spring already?! I hope everyone enjoyed the weather while it lasted and had a wonderful Valentine's Day, though! Last night my boyfriend and I got Panda Express, watched The Office and ended the night with Hershey sundae pies; it was such a fun and enjoyable night in. Now today, I'm avoiding the outside world at all costs and sharing with y'all a few spring new arrivals in hopes of warmer weather as well as some YouTube videos that brought a smile to my face this week!

Feeling 22


I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22!! Shoutout to Taylor Swift for forever making 22 a milestone year; I feel like I've been waiting forever to take advantage of this moment haha! I'm going to keep things short and sweet today, but instead of a typical fashion or lifestyle post, I thought I'd give y'all the opportunity to get to know me a little better. So, today I'm sharing 22 fun facts about myself that some of you may or may not already know, but honestly, I'd be surprised if anyone knew all of these because my little idiosyncrasies are incredibly numerous! 

Cozy on Campus + Sherpa Jacket


When it comes to getting dressed to go to class on campus I always want to look put together, but at the same time, I refuse to sacrifice my comfort for it. Honestly, nothing sounds worse to me than walking across campus in anything besides running shoes and leggings. I'd go as far as to compare it to cruel and unusual torture, actually. So, today, I'm sharing with y'all one of my go-to winter outfits comprised of all my essentials plus the coziest sherpa jacket! I've also started going to barre between my classes, so playing around with versatile outfits like this one has been a favorite of my lately!  


Friday Favorites


Hey y'all! Happy Friday! Today has been off to the weirdest start for me. First of all, I had the strangest dream last night about getting caught in a tornado and then living in a helicopter with my cat for 10 years... like what??? Then, I was getting ready to shoot pictures for a post for next week, and my hair was just not cooperating. It wouldn't hold a curl whatsoever, and one side looked like my hair belonged on a scarecrow! I may be exaggerating, but you get the idea haha! Hopefully once I get done with class, I can just shower and try to continue the rest of my day feeling fresh. Before I go too far into weekend mode though, I want to share with y'all my Friday favorites!

Comfy + Casual Valentine's Day Outfit


We're officially one week away from Valentine's Day, and with the weather right now, let me just say my mindset is as far away from pretty dresses and basically anything that isn't a cozy oversized sweater haha! Last night, my roommate Rachel and I were chilling in our living room when it suddenly started thundering, snowing and icing all at once. It was so wild! So, with the chilly weather expected to stay and for those of you who may have more casual plans next Thursday, I want to share with y'all this super cozy and casual outfit that is totally appropriate and equally feminine for Valentine's Day! 


Valentine's Day Gift Guide


I know Valentine's Day isn't really anyone's favorite holiday, but I think it's all what you make of it! I personally enjoy everything the day brings – mainly chocolate and more chocolate in my case – and for the past two years, I even got a little thrill in seeing other girls get flowers delivered to them at my sorority house! By the way, shoutout to my mom for always sending me flowers and making sure I didn't feel left out when I was #single haha! Anyways, I always love browsing through the Valentine's gift sections – I have a weak spot for anything pink – and I thought I'd share with y'all some of my favorites this year!


Friday Favorites


Hey y'all! Happy February! The first month of 2019 is officially over, and I can't even imagine a better start to this month/weekend than the break in cold weather we're getting right now! If you're not from Kansas, it's been well below freezing all week, but right now it's almost 60 degrees outside – talk about an instant mood booster! Today I have a full list of Friday favorites for y'all, with things falling into every category for the first time in quite a while. So, I hope y'all enjoy it and, afterwards, before sure to soak up the beautiful weather before it goes away again!

Winter Book Reviews


My favorite part about breaks has always been the plentiful amount of time I have to curl up with a good book! Reading is my absolute favorite thing to do when I have a significant amount of free time, and this winter break I decided to knock out a few that have been on my reading list recently. Most of these books were written by authors I'm a die-hard fan of, but I also snagged Michelle Obama's memoir, which I blew through in a matter of a couple days because I couldn't set it down! So, without further ado, let's get into my honest thoughts about the books I've read this winter. 

Tips for Practicing Patience + $100 Giveaway


Hey y'all! Boy oh boy has this post been a long time in the making... I don't think I'm alone in believing patience a tricky trait to possess, and as some of you may know, I'm now going on three years' worth of goals and resolutions revolving around this topic! I have an incredibly futuristic – and sometimes stubborn – mindset leading to patience being something I struggled with (and honestly, sometimes still do), but I'm super excited to share with y'all an update and some tips alongside one of my favorite Midwestern brands! 

Side note: I was having a hard time choosing which photo to put first, so I put the one with the peace signs as a placeholder. Honestly though, I'm kind of digging it now, and I think I'm just going to roll with it because it's a true embodiment of my mood as of late haha!

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! I'm currently writing this between my two classes today. This is super random, but does anyone else have issues taking their professor seriously if they don't use commas correctly in their presentations?? It's probably just a me problem, but gosh does it bother me haha! Anyways, now that that's off my chest, I'm very excited to share with y'all my favorites from this week. Stores are slowly starting to introduce some of their spring pieces, which has made me dream of warmer weather every day. Plus, there were several blog posts I read this week that I'm sure y'all will love, too!

My 2019 Mantra

Hey y'all! I can't believe this is my first time on here for 2019! I just started my last semester at K-State on Tuesday, and gosh, is it surreal to think about graduating in May! This year, in lieu of creating a list of goals and New Year's resolutions, I decided to choose a phrase to live by. This has definitely been a trend in the blogging sphere, but honestly, I'm all about it. I originally got the idea of navigating away from a list of resolutions from one of my favorite bloggers Brighton Keller, and I think it's a great way to look at life more holistically!
