Finally...Outfit of the Day

Crochet Top-TJMaxx
Basic Black Tank
Shoes-Antonio Melani
Necklace- 14k Gold cross Necklace (gift from grandparents)

Today was a good day, ran a few errands with my mom, got a few things in town (shoes woohoo) and came back to the Island house for the evening. Now I am watching Dance Moms and working on my "nice things" for the other camp counselors. Ah yes there are 24 of them I need to do, but the memories I have made this past semester have been amazing...I leave for camp Monday but refresher trainings begin Wednesday. It will be nice to be back with everyone getting ready for the incoming freshmen campers and slowly but surely packing up my little loft apartment...ready for the town home with my best friend this year.  I am SO excited, this will be my third year as a counselor and I think it will be a great way to end my last "free" summer...before heading out into the real world. But for now...

Favorite 5

Almost done with my project, AH I can just taste my last little bit of summer left. Then off to camp and school will begin again.  Lately I have had weird feelings seeing as how this will be my last year of school...My last year will definitely be one to remember that is for sure! Might as well live it up and make the absolute most out of it...I can't wait to get back in the swing of things and move into my new apartment...lots of new decoration ideas!!!! :) 

Hopefully I can have a few outfit posts soon, but for now here are my top five favorite Pins of the week...

These shoes are sooo cute! Really easy to make too. I am going to have to do this when I get a chance. 

This is actually a pic from one of my favorite bloggers Atlantic-Pacific...her style is amazing.  The stripes+the floral print look great together as well as the leather bag.  I just love everything about this photo.

I have been searching for a skirt like this...any ideas where I can find one? 

These bracelets are too cute...I would love the tangerine color. Ok all of them haha Tory <3

Spaghetti squash...one of my favorite easy easy things to make.  You literally just cut it in half, put it face down in a glass dish half filled with water, and microwave it for about 7-8 mins. Then take it out and scrape out the squash with a fork and add butter, cheese, and garlic salt/pepper. It tastes just like regular noodles :) 

Hope you had a wonderful weekend

Ginger Tea

Eh after a most unpleasant evening with a stomach virus my mom found a simple recipe for Ginger Tea...It is suppose to be really good for sore throats, upset stomachs, and overall soothing.  I really liked it, and it definitely helped my tum.  It has a nice spicy flavor kind of Christmas ish in a way lol... going to try to add this to my morning breakfast.

Simple Ginger Tea Recipe
  • 4-6 thin slices or 1 tsp of fresh ginger root
  • 1tsp honey
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup of boiled water
  • Let ginger steep in the water for a bout 10-15 mins
  • Enjoy

Break...Accumulated Accessories :)

Part two of my school project has been taking over my life, but at least it's something interesting.  I have to basically create a business for a country we visited (Europe Trip woohoo) and develop a marketing plan.  I chose the United Kingdom :)  Taking a break for now, and here are a few accessories I have picked up throughout the summer...some are from my trip and others are from my home area.

 I pretty much thought these Emi Jay Hair Ties were SO ridiculous...who pays for a piece of tied fabric?? Well supposedly they don't crease your hair and I am all for that so I thought I would give them a try.  I found them at a local store but they can be ordered online as well.  I love the neutral colors.

 Left: Topshop                                                                     Right: Merge

 Bottom: Accessorize                                  Upper: Topshop
 One of my favorite things I brought back from Austria!  My Swarovski ring, necklace, and earrings.  They go with everything AND match my Aggie Ring WHOOP

 Merge lately has had some really nice jewelry to choose from. This necklace was so cool I had to snatch it! It's kind of hard to tell from the picture but it has a double layer chain.
 I got these at the very beginning of summer for Easter actually, but I absolutely love them.  Honora always has really nice pearls and I got these for half price on Rue La La

 J.Crew always wonderful

 Both of these bracelets are from Topshop UK. I like stacking them with all my other bracelets and the stones are really pretty on the left...Pinks and golds are a nice combination.

 All of these are from Accessorize.  The upper left necklace is exactly what I had been looking for.  I really wanted a copper looking collar.  It goes wonderfully with my summer items and it will definitely carry nicely into the Fall as well.   The beading on the other necklace is so pretty and I love the hints of sparkle it gives.

Back to work! Happy Wednesday

One of those days...

where you want to curl up in a cloud blanket, drink something hot, forget about life issues, and JUST CHILL. Yep that is today. I finally finished a report for class 70 pages to be exact eh but it wasn't too bad.  I'll begin my second one at some point tomorrow. Right now I just need some me/chill time...time to sort out some thoughts and try to not be so hard on myself.  Sometimes thinking is good, other times not so much lol I need to just be...one day at a time. 

The Cloud Blanket...
Who knows, maybe it's this sunny thunder weather outside. Whatever it is I am completely thrown off at the moment. Weird Mood, Weird Feelings, MEHHH. BUT there are a lot of exciting things to look forward to. I'll focus on that, the good things in life.

Sweet Summer Time

Soo these are a few things I have seen a LOT of this summer... I created a few sets to kind of show what's in my closet/on my wish list :)

Colors of the Spring
Lots of Lace, Mint, Florals, and Pastel Colors...Plus you can never go wrong with a good leather bag MK you do it well :)

Tango Tangerine
Ah yes Tango Tangerine...THE Summer 2012 Color decided by Pantone themselves
I love this
In love with my new leather Oxfords (Italy for the win).  I have seen lots of gold collar-like necklace pieces and gold detail on just about everything (which I LOVE) And hats, summer is definitly the best time for a good floppy hat...beach day? YES

My study abroad class work has kept me super busy these days.  My 40 page photo book is just about complete and I cannot wait to see the final product. It will be a nice keepsake.  I'll have to do a post of my favorite souvenirs later when I have more time woohoo I just wish I could be back in Europe...but I have to say, home is pretty wonderful.
