thankful + new hair

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope all of you are enjoying this beautiful Thursday and spending time feasting with the ones you love. Currently, I am in Alabama spending the holiday with family. God has blessed me so much over the past year and I couldn't be more thankful! However, I need a major nap right now after stuffing my face with so much food... (I also need a nap to prepare for a late night filled with shopping ;)). What are your plans for the evening? Before I go shopping, I may go see the new Dumb and Dumber movie. It is a family favorite and I am so excited to see the second one!! 
p.s. I died my hair :P I am slowly trying to achieve an all ash blonde color and I may go for a little ombre in December. Kinda feeling like Elsa from Frozen right now lol.

2015 holiday gift guide + my wish list

 As promised, I put together a little gift guide of a few items that I think would make great gifts to any friends. I know that buying gifts for a lot of people can get pretty expensive, so everything listed is $50 and under. I prefer my gifts to have a personal touch as well as practicality in use. I know it's the thought that counts but why buy a gift if the person will never use it, ya feel me? Okay, so here's my favorite gifts for the season plus I linked the items to where you can buy them below.

Here are a few items on my wish list for Christmas this year! I always like to see what other people are asking for to get ideas :)

the road not taken

This week has been one of the hardest weeks to push through. The anticipation of Thanksgiving break lingers upon me. Not only is Thanksgiving next week, but also Black Friday. I haven't decided if i am going to fight the crowds or whether I will stay home and surf the internet sales. Unfortunately, I have a little surgical procedure being done tomorrow, so this weekend I will be stuck in bed recovering. I am hoping to use the time to put together a little holiday gift guide for those of you who are in need of gifts for your loved ones!

polar vortex

Two words: 'Tis cold. Actually, it is so cold that I had to choose a location indoors to shoot these pics because I couldn't bear to be outside without a jacket. Yes, I know I am slacking. I haven't been the best blogger for the past two weeks but I am hoping to get back on it soon. On a better note, the holidays are right around the corner and I could not be more excited. I need a break from school and there is nothing better than spending time at home with family and yummy food (and catching up with my tv shows via netflix). I have some exciting projects in the works for 2015 and I cannot wait to share with you guys. As the year comes closer to an end, I keep thinking about how amazing 2015 will be.

autumn weddings

 Recently, I went to my cousin's wedding and I had so much fun! The wedding was a country chic theme and it was darling. The venue was a rustic barn, which fit the theme perfectly. I enjoyed snapping a few photos outside the barn before the wedding started. Okay, so I know I probably shouldn't have worn black to a wedding but 1. it was a fall wedding aka wear dark colors and 2. I wore colorful tights to make up for it :) :) :) I literally just threw this outfit together while packing for the wedding and I couldn't be happier with the result. I like the edgy look of the shoes mixed with the more feminine pearl and lace details. Every girl needs the perfect little black dress and I purchased mine from

hello november

Now that it's November, the holidays are just around the corner. It feels like summer was just yesterday (probably because it was since the weather was 80 degrees last week...). Anyways, I am finally donning a few of my sweaters and pulling on my tall boots. I decided since I am about to go off to college that it was time to invest in a nice pair of riding boots. I ended up purchasing the new Tory Burch riding boot for this season. The boots are high quality and I know they will last me for years. The subtle TB logo imprinted on the side adds a nice touch, making the boot not appear too gaudy. I also did some bargain shopping recently at the outlets in Charlotte and scored this pink J. Crew Factory sweater for 50% off and this leopard skirt at Banana Republic for $20!

october 31

I wasn't originally planning to do a Halloween post but last minute I threw a costume together with some friends and it turned out looking pretty awesome! I spent a total of $5 on this costume and that was for the hair dye (total fail by the way). I wanted to be Snow White so I could dye my hair black but as you can see it turned out more of an ashy brown color. The whole outfit was simple to put together: yellow maxi skirt, white button down, blue tank top, red cape, and a red ribbon. I'd like to say my dwarfs look pretty spiffy too :). 

Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween! Oh, and Happy November! ;)

October Favorites

Oh my goodness, where has the time gone? October flew by so fast. I will say it has been one of the best but most stressful months I have had this year. Every time fall comes around, I set goals for myself that I will go to a haunted house, carve pumpkins, bake holiday treats, etc. Usually, I never do any of those but this year I feel like I embraced all the fall activities that I could! I went to a haunted house earlier this month and even though it wasn't too scary, I had so much fun. It also got me into this stage of watching scary movies every weekend with friends. This past week I was watching a Chucky marathon and it was hysterical. I also went to the fair recently with one of my friends and we had fun playing with his GoPro camera on all the rides! You can view the video of our clips here. Okay, so on to some of my favorites for the month....


So I was introduce to the Walking Dead this month and I am really loving it. I haven't had much time to go back and watch the previous seasons but I am hoping to do that with all the holidays coming up.  I also caught up on Revenge which has been one of my favorite shows for about 3 years now. This season is mind-blowing and everything is finally coming together. Lastly, I started watching the office on Netflix. O. M. G. It is the funniest show I have ever seen. You have to have a good sense of humor to really get into it. It has definitely cheered me up when I am having a rough or stressful day because I can't help but laugh at all the silly things they do on there! 

Long story short.. I used to be a die hard Taylor Swift fan and then once she turned into a pop star and ditched the curls, I started disliking her. Well I saw her new album on iTunes this week and decided I would give it a try. I am OBSESSED. I bought the whole album (which I never do with any artist). Her lyrics are always on point. Some of the songs I have been loving are Clean, All You Had To Do Was Stay, and I Know Places. 

As far as fashion favorites, I have been loving hats and flannels. I think I wear a hat every single chance I can so I apologize if I post like 5 outfits in a row of me wearing a floppy hat... but they are just so darn cute for the fall! Flannels have also been a go to since I can style them a million different ways. I can throw it over a tee or dress, wrap it around my waist, use it as a jacket, etc. AND they are available anywhere for affordable prices. 

Side note | I apologize for being absent this week. As some of you know, the deadline for early admission at many colleges is November 1st. I have been working all week on perfecting my applications as well as having a huge load of school work piled on top of me. Now with all of that behind me, I will be posting much more in the upcoming weeks!
