Inspiration Monday

Hello my dears! Unfortunately, today's inspiration Monday is going to be short and sweet. After going back to classes today after a whole week of sleeping in, I am quite exhausted. I found this photo in my inspiration folder on my computer and I thought that I would share it with you. I hope that it inspires you as well!

One Year Ago Today

Exactly one year ago today I started this blog. It has been a great year with some really great moments. I have been through two semesters of school, switched to the fashion program, enjoyed one great summer, and enjoyed many adventures. I feel like so much has happened this year and I have changed so much, which makes me really glad that I started this blog when I did. I went through all of my posts from the past year last night and it really brought up some great memories, which is why I wanted to include some of the photos in this post. I was able to re-live some the the memories from my many adventures, and also able to see what I was wearing last year, which inspired some outfits for this year. It has been quite a ride and I am glad that you were here to share it with me. I am looking forward to another year of blogging, and I for one can't wait to see what adventures await me this year!

DIY Wednesday: Bird Pin

For today's DIY Wednesday I chose something quick and simple. It can however make a huge difference in an outfit. I chose to pin mine with a classic trench and chambray skirt for a classic look with a quirky twist. For this DIY, all you need is a fake bird, a pin backing, and some glue (I used hot glue, but super glue would also work well). Simply glue the pin backing onto the fake bird and you are ready to enjoy you new accessory!
Happy DIY'ing!!

......And The Sweet Serenity Of Books

Seeing as how it's my spring break and all, and I have been doing a considerable amount of reading. I thought that this would be the perfect time to share my personal library. You can catch glimpses of my new bookshelf, which I thrifted and spray painted. I have many books, most of which are fashion books and classic novels. I also keep a few mementos on my shelf, including the vast array of playbills and programs you see. However, my collection is far from complete! I love just curling up with a good book in the middle of the day. However, my favorite time to read is on a blanket in the park. I have always loved reading, I was always the first to fill up my book-it button (remember those) and the library has always been one of my favorite places. Reading can inspired you, educate you, and take you anywhere in the world you want to go. I adore sitting down with a good book! What are some of your favorite books?

Inspiration Monday

Hello Lovelies! Sorry I have been such an absent blogger lately. We are currently experiencing some ridiculous rain and flooding lately, so outfit pictures have been a no go! Not to mention that I have been working on some super exciting projects lately! Which I will let you know about later if everything works out!

I am soo looking forward to my spring break next week, but that means getting through this week of mid-terms! I am also looking forward to spending some time with my friend Janessa this week, who is visiting from out of town!

So I apologize for today's inspiration post coming a little late. Better late than never though right! Sadly, I have no idea where this photo came from, seeing as how I found it stored away in my inspiration folder on my computer! I hope that this photo inspires you as much as it does me! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Monday!!!

Inspiration Monday

Today's inspiration Monday is about the White Gardens at Sissinhurst. I was going to post later this evening, but my class was cancelled so I have been hanging out in the library for the past couple hours. Not that I'm complaining, the library is my favorite place on campus and cancelled classes are awesome! So anyways, since I was stuck here for a while I thought that I would share with you about the gardens. I was reading about it in The Encyclopedia of the Exquisite this weekend, and when I looked up the photos I was blown away. It is so beautiful, and knowing the story behind it made it interesting as well. I could look at the pictures for hours. I hope that you enjoy them as well. Have a wonderful Monday...I'm off to explore!

Photo Diary

Due to the fact that I haven't been posting much this week, I decided to include some photos of what I have been up to this week. I was unable to finish my DIY yesterday because I lost some of my tools of that I needed...sad day! Hopefully my posting will be a bit more regular soon! These are some photos from my week, including the book I'm reading along with a new hair lovely, a photo from a lunch date, a cupcake from a local bakery sitting with my favorite mug, and the official blog debut of my dog Gabby!
