Shirts, Tees and Camis

Does anyone else look at Pinterest at all the cute Brandy Melville tops, or Urban Outfitter clothes? I have a solution that will.. well… probably increase the urge to look for ideas. The key word being ideas, that won’t totally drain my college fund.

DIY Shirts!!

I love this DIY it is definitely one of my favorites. It’s so easy and the results are as cute as the ones you see people buy.

1. Smith’s RoseBud Lip Salve


I’m going to tell you all a secret, I should do a post on my vast knowledge of chap sticks; I love them so so much! The idea of super soft lips just makes me want to keep piling on this chap stick! Not to mention that it has such a unique smell and tastes lip Rose (*disclaimer* no, i did not taste test it :D)
I used to get super chapped lips, but now i have a routine every time I wake up or leave the house. Keep On Reading!

Magic in Tiny Little Bottles

I don’t know about you, but I get headaches pretty often, I don’t know why, but I also have a chiropractor basically on speed dial. . . I just turned 18… ya I know crazy.  I hate taking Aspirin or anything for headaches and neck aches because I feel like it is not healthy, so my Essential Oils kit is the perfect replacement!

I’m honestly going to say these have changed my life. I got them last year, and I don’t know what I would do without them. Keep on Reading!

Looking through the Glasses

Looking through the Glasses

Hellooooo!

I was looking through instagram and I saw kendall Jenner post a pic in stripe pjs and these cute simple thin rimmed glasses.

I immediately fell in love! They are now my new obession 🙂

I do wear glasses and I have contacts, but I decided getting fake glasses would be cheaper than getting ones with my prescription in them.

For years, I felt like wearing glasses just didn’t suit me and I didn’t like them. It could have been me going through my awkward stage in middle school, but now I’m in love with the way they add to an outfit. These style enhancers, bring out different sides of the the same outfit.

Your Flight Has Landed; Welcome to New York!

Your Flight Has Landed; Welcome to New York!

Hey guys!

I wanted to tell you about my trip to NYC and all the places I went, and my purpose for going there! New York City has been that one place to me that has always interested me. I decided I wanted to look at schools out there, for Fashion Design and Journalism.

Frosty morning Flights.

So my mom and I packed up our backpack; yup. you heard me backpacks. Saying we packed light was an understatement, we barely brought anything. I kind of liked it though, not so much to worry about. We got our tickets and we were outta MN faster than you could say Minneapolis!

The schools I checked out were:

  • Pratt Institute of Art– I fell in love with this school, It was all enclosed and the campus was beautiful. It was in Brooklyn, so you weren’t in the city, but still had all the benefits that the city offers just a subway ride away.
  • Parsons School of Design– This school was breathetaking, it was so uniquely designed, I felt so inspired. It was in the center of Midtown, and if you have never been there, it is crazy… all the time. You were directly in the city, so there were some postives and negatives, but mostly postives.

We left on October 15th, it was a friday, we got in NY at 10 am. Went straight to Pratt’s tour and then made our way into the city for Parson’s tour, all-in-all, I fell in love with NYC right away.

After the busy day, my mom and I both crashed, we got some food at the restuarant connected to our hotel, which was the 48LEX, it was amazing! The breakfasts’ were a little boring, but you really did not have to eat there if you did not want too. The rooms were spacious and super modern. The staff was kind and accomadating!

The second day we got up and got ready for our day in SOHO!!

We went to everywhere! Brandy Melville, Micheal Kors, Chanel, Kate Spade, and Vintage Twin Pop-up shop! We then walked a few blocks to the Tribecca area to go the Black Tap, If you have not heard of this place PLEASE CHECK THEIR INSTAGRAM! It will honestly bless your day, but it will make you super hungry …soo….

After we ate we shopped a little bit more then started heading back to the hotel. On our way we stumbled upon Grand Central Terminal which was just breathetaking, something you have to see! We saw street performers outside which was so cool! When we got to the hotel we were offically tired, it was confirmed.

We walked to get chinese from this little buffet place, then took it back our hotel room. We finished our second day in NYC eating chinese on our bed and watching Modern Family.

I dreaded this day…. but it was inevitably… sadly.

Our last day in the place I had fallen in love with. We walked to central park and spent most of our day just looking around and seeing places. However, I did get a Chanel bag, I was so happy, I still an shocked! I then got some things at Zara. We made our way to Rockafeller Center, which was so fun! Then it was time to go :(.

Our Uber was late.. but we got to the aitport with plenty of time… we thought…. we almost missed our flight (ughhhhh, so much stress). We got back to MN at about 8:30pm and I had to then return back to reality of a college student; with an essay due the next day.

XOXO,
