College Dorm Room Tour 2016

I ended up getting really freaking busy with assignments and sorority so I just did not have time to get a blog post up at the end of the week but I am home now for the weekend and am excited to finally be sharing my dorm room tour for this year! I tired linking everything I could down below. I reorganized parts of my room this year and I have a few new things so I thought I would share an updated video. PS: If you like this post be sure to check out last years tour and also what's in my shower caddy! Talk to y'all later I hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall weekend ;)

Celebrity Fashion Inspiation

The other night I ended up watching the documentary The First Monday In May on Netflix which gives you a behind the scenes look at the planning and execution of the Meta Gala that takes places every year. I will have to admit that the movies at times was quite boring however the fashion lover and event planner in me found parts of it pretty interesting. Anyways it got me thinking about where I get my fashion inspiration from. Obviously my go to place is other fashion bloggers. My favorite include Kelly In The City, Prep In Your Step, Covering The Basis, and The College Prepster. Though I also have my favorite celebrity fashionistas as well. If I could have two celebrities closets it would hands down be Jenna Lyons and Kate Middleton.  Who's closets would you die to have? 

On a different note I hope you enjoyed this fun little post for something different. I have another college post coming to you soon it's just going to take a bit of time to get it all together! Hopefully it will be up tomorrow.

Perfect Shower Caddy & Essentials

If you are anything like me then you have a million and one toiletries and beauty products. I honesty have a problem when it comes to cosmetics sometimes I think Ulta is my second home. So when it came to finding a shower caddy that would fit everything last year it was near impossible until I finally found something big enough at Target though it got dirty and gross looking really quickly. So I was on the hunt again this year for a shower caddy. Thanks to my mom she had the amazing idea of looking on Scout to find something that would fit all my stuff. Thus enter the Scout Uptown Girl Tote. It's the PERFECT bag for holding all my crap and the material makes it so easy to wipe down when it gets gross looking! If you are in the need of a new shower caddy you have to check out this bag from Scout. So today I decided to share with you some pictures of the shower caddy and what I have in it ;)

Friday Favs

We made it through another week y'all so it's time for another Friday Favs post! I had a really great week and am just feeling happy. Not going to lie last week was a bit rough trying to get back into the swing of thing but I am feeling much more adjusted after this week. Next week is when things start picking up as far as the work load goes. I already have two tests next week! I am also excited as sorority has officially started and we are busy preparing for recruitment. I hope everyone had a great week and you take sometime to enjoy the weekend! I will see you back here tomorrow for another college related post as I have been enjoying sharing my college tips ;) 
 
Chocolate Chex: I have been eating vanilla Chex for breakfast for about a year now but when I went to shop for food to bring to school I decided to mix it up and try chocolate Chex and I am really glad I did! They definitely have a chocolate flavor but it's not so sweet that it doesn't taste like you are eating cereal! If you like chocolate I think you might really like these.

Making Decisions & Doing What You Love


Today's post is pretty much going to be a little rant about what is on my mind. Yes this is a bit different from my usual posts but I wanted to be real and honest with you as a follow up to my sophomore year goals post. I decided to write this post today because I really have not talked too much about my internship experience this summer.

Sophomore Year Of College Goals

Now that I am in my Sophomore year of college I am excited to get this new year rolling! When I started college last year I didn't exactly have any specific goals because everything was all so new and exciting. I wanted to try all different things which is great but I have started to narrow my focus to what I am truly interested in investing my time into. After my summer internship and having time to reflect on last year I came up with nine goals that I have for this school year. I am really happy and excited with what I came up with so I thought I would share them with you!

1. You may not know this about me but I joined a sorority (Alpha Sigma Alpha) in the fall last year. It has been an amazing way for me to meet new people and be involved in some amazing philanthropy activities. Now that I am settled in the sorority I really want to be more involved in planning and possibly holding a higher position! 

Can't Miss Deals

Today's post is going to be really short and sweet because to be honest I have lots of other things to do! Though I had to tell you about some amazing deals that are going on right now and in the next week that I had to share! All three of these deals I am planning on partaking in. I order these SUPER cute Jack Roger booties today for a really good deal with the code below. I am also really excited for two  upcoming Ulta deals as I need new brush heads and I love the Bare Minerals lip glosses! I hope you enjoy some of these deals and make sure to share any other great finds with me ;)

Friday Favs

I hope everyone had a good week and has an even better weekend. I was very productive getting last minute things done before I move back into school on Monday. As for this weekend I am going to spent my last three days with lots of friends and family. Tonight is dinner with family friends and tomorrow I get to see another friend from high school!! I hope y'all have some fun things planned this weekend as well. As for today's post I had a few favorites from the past week that I thought I would share with you since it's been a while since I last posted a Friday Favs!

The Choice: I watched this movie on the way from our vacation and y'all this movie was SO good. I don't know why but I didn't think it was going to be that good maybe it was the preview but it definitely surprised me. I loved this movie. I mean can Nicholas Sparks even not impresses me?

Travel With Me: Hilton Head Island 2016

I am FINALLY finished with a a travel video from family trip last week to Hilton Head Island! I have been busy doing other stuff that I just have not had time to sit down and put it all together but I finally am done with it! I have to admit that it's not as good as the one from Vero Beach but it turned out better then I thought it would. It was hard to get a lot of footage when most days we spend the day being lazy at the beach! 

Saturday August 20th 

We drove the whole afternoon and arrived in Hilton Head around 3:3ish which ended up being perfect because we couldn't get into our beach house until 4pm. So we picked up the key to the place and started unloading all our stuff. We went to dinner at Skillet's Cafe which was very good. It was raining so hard that after dinner we just went back home. It poured so much that the parking lots started to become flooded.
