Today is my birthday. 21. The last “fun” birthday. I feel like I’m now officially “in my twenties.” And lucky for me, classes begin today. And since it is my twenty first, I’m including a link for my Lilly Pulitzer shot glasses tutorial. xoxox


Lilly Notebooks

Normally I would use two three-subject notebooks for all of my classes (one for MW classes and another for my TR classes). But this semester I’m going to test out using a different notebook for each class (of course Lilly ones!). I’m thinking that this is going to cut down on some unnecessary bulk. With…


A little Preview

I’m not ready to show y’all my room yet… but I can tell you the bedding I got! Green gingham from Pottery Barn Kids. I’m using sheets from Martha Stewart… just white with lace trim. And I’m using the same pillows from my regular dorm room bedding. The green matches really well! I promise to…

I’m so jealous of her painting abilities. [No really, take a look at her portraits!!!] I was showing Soccer Mom some of the…


Last Day

Today is my last full day home 🙁 I leave bright and early Wednesday morning. I’m excited to see all my friends. I can’t wait for crew to start back up. And I’m anxious (in a good way) for my internship. But I’m definitely going to be missing a few things about being home. I’ve…
