Year Of Fun: February 2017

I have been waiting to share this post with you because I loved sharing with you what fun things I did in January for the first month of the "Year Of Fun". February seemed to go by really quick which might have to do with the fact that it is the shortest month. I had another really great month of time spent with friends and family doing some things that made everyday life more enjoyable. I already have some super exciting things planned for March which I can't wait to share with you as well! I would love to know what things you enjoyed doing this month. 

1. Ice Skating // My dad's work rented an ice rink for the night so I met my family their after I was done at work and had some fun skating. I didn't end up skating too long between needing food because I was starving and trying to get skates that felt right on my feet. Though the little time I actually skated I had lots of fun. I had not been in a while!

Luxury Wish List

Today's post features some things I normally don't post on here. I have always tried to stick with reasonably priced items on my blog because that is what I buy and can afford. While I don't spend hundreds of dollars on clothing I am willing to spend more money on shoes and accessories. I have always loved more high end accessories but never really invested in anything. Though as I get older I am becoming more interested in quality over quantity. Meaning I am more willing to spend money on things I know I will have for a long time. After getting my Tory Burch boots for Christmas my love of high end shoes began! I think I am attracted to luxury accessories as opposed to clothing because it will last a long time. Plus I have always loved shoes and handbags. With that said I thought it would be fun to share the items that are on my luxury wish list. Obviously I will not be purchasing any of these items in the near future as some of them are crazy expensive. However they are things I have in the back of my head for when the time might be right! Plus it's always fun to dream a little. Also as time goes on some of the items I might wish for might change but these are my items for right now. They are pieces I could see myself using on a daily basis! I would love to know if you have any luxury wish list items.

Random Thoughts...

Long time no post but I had another very busy weekend as usual! My sorority left Friday after classes to travel to Ohio for a conference. We went to workshops pretty much all day Saturday and then we left after the day was done to drive back to campus. We got back late Saturday night and I was a driver so I was SO tired when we got back that all I did was crash. Sunday I spent pretty much the whole day catching up on homework as I had SO many assignments to do. I did take a break to meet my parents for a quick dinner before sorority! Anyways I wanted to catch you up on what has been going on in my life and also share some random thoughts for the moment...

1. The weather has been SO warm I literally love it. It has been in the 50s and when we were in Ohio on Saturday it was 70. This weather really makes me wish winter was over even though I know it's not. It also makes me wish I didn't live in the cold.

My Advise On Picking A College

Today's post is going to be different than what I normally post about on the daily basis but this is something I have been meaning to talk about forever I just haven't taken the time to write about it. Yes this is going to be a longer post so sit back grab a cup of tea or coffee and lets get into this post!

Even though I stated this blog in my junior year of high school I never really talked much about the college process or choosing a school here on my blog. I guess maybe because my blog is an escape for me from my daily life and I really didn't want to talk about college any more than a had to at the time. Though over two year later I am finally ready to share my thoughts!

Spring Inspiration

About this time every year I get so sick of the winter weather. I am honestly done with the snow every though we still have a long way to go. My sister is off to Florida this weekend and I would be lying if I didn't say I was jealous. Yes I was just their a little over a month ago but still I could really use some warm weather right about now! While that is not going to happen any time soon I figured the next best thing would be to look at bright fun spring colors for inspiration. So I decided to put together a fun little inspiration board of things I have my eye on for this spring and summer season! What things are one your wish list? With that I am off to bed.

Five Tips For A Fun Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day everyone! While I don't have any elaborate plans really for the day other than eating a few pieces of sponge candy (thanks mom)! I wanted to share with you five things that I think would make for the perfect Valentines Day. You could even spread these activities throughout the month or week. I think Valentines Day can be fun whether you have a date or not. It can be just as fun to pamper yourself a bit or spent it with friends. I hope you enjoy these fun activities and I would love to know of any more idea you come up with 💗

Get A Manicure // There is just something about getting my nails done that I found so refreshing. I always feel so much better when I spend the time and get my nails done. Even though you could easily do your own it's the perfect time to treat yourself. 

Best Collaboration Ever

On this dreary Monday morning I woke up to some very exciting news in my inbox. I got an emil this morning that Lilly Pulitzer, S'well Bottle and Starbucks collaborated to create a exclusive Lilly print Swell bottle that will be available at select Starbucks locations! I KNOW RIGHT I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT. If you have been following my blog for a while then it is no secret that I am obsessed with water bottles. I have been wanting a S'well bottle but never loved the colors but now OMG how can I not get one! They will be available in select Starbucks stores February 15th and then online in a couple months. I don't know how expensive they will be but I am assuming they will be similar in price to regular S'well bottles. I have a Starbucks near school which I will mostly likely be checking out but I don't know how many Starbucks will sell them. We will have to keep each other updated! Talk later just had to share this with y'all in case you are interested.

Friday Favs

Happy Friday everyone! I am spending the night relaxing in my room and my roommate went home for the night so I have the room to myself which is always a nice treat. I noticed that I have not posted a Friday Favorites in almost a month but I have not had to many different things to share until recently! I have been feeling hungry 24/7 this week so I included a few snacks I am loving I picked up at the store. I don't know what it is but I just can't seem to feel full! Anyways hope you have some fun things planned for this weekend. 

This Is Us // My family recently signed up for Hulu and we are testing it out to see if it is worth it. So far I am loving it because I can watch all my TV shows at school because I don't have a TV. While it has all my regular shows I watch Greys, The Middle, etc it also has some shows I just haven't seen because you know you get in a routine. Anyways I started watching This Is Us this week because I have heard some good things about. OMG let me tell you I am hooked. I have already watch way to many episodes to admit but if you are looking for something new to watch check this out.

Saying Hi

I just wanted to say a quick "hi" and let you know I didn't forget about you! I had a CRAZY and really fun weekend so I didn't post anything. Friday I worked after class and then went out with friends after work. Saturday I also worked and then I went home to go ice skating with the fam and spend some time at home. Then Sunday my little got initiated as a member of ASA and then Sunday night I went to a Superbowl party. So yeah I was really busy this weekend and this week is recruitment for sorority so I also have a super busy week. I am going to try an post a few posts this week but I am just letting you know things might be a bit lacking until next week! Thanks for sticking around and I hope you had a great weekend too.
