It's the end of the semester...The key?

Monday, December 3, 2012

Here's the key to the lock:: Organization and time management....who would have thought! 

So we have reached this point yet again the end of the semester, where we are finally starting to see the light to the end of the tunnel and we will have one more semester under our belt of our degrees. 

But getting to see the light at the end of the tunnel is a lot harder than it sounds. 

There are these things. 
Called distractions. 
Such as....
1. Facebook (Seriously though are people that you don't even care about more important than your exams)
2. Twitter
3. Tumblr
4. Dear lord Youtube. Seriously, animals and youtube what an obsession. I could watch animals on youtube for hours on end. 
5. Netflix. This is something that is highly addictive and if continued it will be 1am and you will still have a 10am exam to study and take. 

These are just a couple of things that we are faced with when it comes to distractions. 
So how to deal? 

I mean I could tell you to just stop looking at them, and stop watching the netflix and stop facebook stalking. But you won't listen. And god knows I won't even listen. 

So what next...
Say hello to a friend that we need to know. 
Time management...WHAT IS THIS?! you may ask 
I actually have no idea so I googled what it was
Get this its where you organize your time and prioritize your time. 

This is where my lilly calendar comes in hand. 
This planner has been with me since day one of the semester and will continue to be with me to my last final.

Do not neglect your planner. 

However realize that you need to have you time, pamper yourself some how...paint your nails and then type up a term paper, or blog. 

Or go to the gym and blast some music through your headphones and get yourself pumped to study till hours on end.

So my exhausted friends. 
Keep on going most of us only have a couple weeks left!

Keep calm and Red Bull on! 

He's just not that into you?

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

When you go out on a date, especially a first date you put on your best game face you don't step out of the lines that you have set for yourself, you try your hardest not to act as weird as you would around your best friend, you spend about an hour or two getting ready for your date and making sure there is not a hair on your head out of place and that your outfit shows that you know how to dress yourself but that you also arent too high maintenance. okay now STOP.

You are ready, you have primped and prepped yourself for the date, you are ready..or as ready as you can be. Some of you may even have your note cards ready for possible conversation topics if it ends up being an awful date and the best conversation you can come up with is staring at eachother making bug eyes hoping that he will say something soon or your best friend (who is now apparently pregnant) calls you and tells you she needs emotional support because her boyfriend sucks and she doesn't know what to do. 

If you have ever gone on a bad date you know there is nothing worse then you thinking its a bad date and him thinking its a really good date and while you are not interested in him he is VERY interested in you. 
HOWEVER it seems that in a sense women are easier (most of the time) to get a vibe off of whether or not she is into you or not, she will text you more words, she will seem genuinely interested in what you have to say and your interests...even if she has never heard of your interests. 

However. The world of guys. They are on the opposite side of the spectrum most of the time. They are harder to read than Arabic or Chinese calligraphy. 

How can you tell if a guy is really into you, how can you tell what he wants. Men may be harder to read however they all kind of are wired the same way in some sort of fashion. 

How many times have you texted a guy you like and never gotten a response back and then the fall off planet earth and you never hear from them for weeks or even a month. And you would rather think....okay maybe he didn't get my text, maybe he is just really busy, maybe his dog died and he is grieving, he could have died, yep that's it he died. We jump from idea to idea, most of which are irrational and quite silly. However that doesn't stop you from coming up with all of these exaggerated reasons why he never called you or texted you back. 

However you know exactly why he didn't call you or text you back...he is just not that into you. You may not like the fact that he is not that into you, and how he handled the fact that he is not that into you. 
However some guys just need a little teaching to when it comes to how to be nice about it and not just avoiding the person.

Basically how do you handle such a situation? You realize that not every guy is right for you and not every girl is right for that guy...if that were the case then we would find our "soulmate" a lot easier. But don't get discouraged because a few dates went poorly or a guy turned you down or told you that he just didn't like you. It's not the end of the world and you learn what type of person you want to be with when you have a couple crappy dates or when a guy just tells you no. 

So if he doesn't respond to your text and falls off planet earth know you arent alone for one and second, he obviously was not worth your time...AND it doesn't make you any less valuable or beautiful because a couple guys here or there don't want to continue on dating you. 

Just pick yourself up and put yourself back out there. 

And if all else fails....get a couple of cats and start a cat lady life...but please, use that as your last resort. Once you go cat lady you can't go back. 

Keep Calm and Carry On! 

Found this: truth.

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
Louise Erdrich (The Painted Drum)

The rules of loving you.

So sometimes late at night I am up thinking about what life is really all about. Where am I supposed to be? And all these other questions that make me wonder what exactly am I going to do, am I meant to have a relationship. Is my relationship just going to be with fashion? Can I find someone who I can stand to be around and can stand to be around me while finding me attractive.

So here goes my list::
1. Learn that you are beautiful
2. Understand that you can be happy with out a man
3. Some people are not meant to be in relationships
4. I have so many great friends who are single and know their place
5. You need to make myself happy first. 
6. If a guy wants you he will come...if not he isnt worth your efforts anyways.
7. Don't be a smelly perfume that comes on too strong
8. Strength is more than muscle it is control of yourself and emotions
9. However dont try to control everything, it's impossible
10. It is okay to cry
11. People are humans and they make mistakes
12. Keep yourself well and you will feel good about yourself as a person
13. You don't need a boyfriend
14. Life is full of choices try and make good ones for the most part. 
18. Give yourself enough time to heal you will know when you find the right guy. DON'T SETTLE
19. Priorities: school and work always come first
20. Tell yourself everyday that you are beautiful 
21. Remember one mistake doesn't ruin everything.
22. SMILE it will prevent having to use botox!!!!

Keep calm and Carry on! 

Happy Monday Ya'll

hope it was a good monday! and if not look...Corgis! 

How I am prioritizing school and life

Recently I have been thinking of ways to make school and life a bit less stressful. Trying to brainstorm ways for life to be a bit more manageable with out stress and anxiety. And I think a lot of other people wish they could try some of these things and figure it out. So I am going to make a list of ways that have helped me..

1. Have a planner! : I know that some people claim that they can use your phones and if you can great! But actually use it. My planner has everything important in it not just school work it goes from what I need to get done for the day and also my school work and then little things that should be done by the end of the week. It helps me feel like I can cross things off of my day so I know I have accomplished more than I thought. It's giving yourself credit for what you did for the day as well.
I have however found that having a cute planner makes it easier for me to use it...I have a lilly pulitzer planner and adore it. I use the stickers to mark off important days and exams. And I use both the weekly and the monthly. There is so much space to write in the planner and its totally adorable. 
Organized and Cute? Double yes. 

2. Have ME time! : Be selfish for a couple hours or an hour of your day. It helps keep you mentally sane I need a couple of hours to get on tumblr and reblog or watch netflix and tumblr. Or read a book. Anything that I would like to do...I do it. It helps me realize that I can have a life and still succeed at school.

3. Prioritize, Prioritize, Prioritize  Make sure that you do what you need to do first and this sounds like commons sense but sometimes the most important thing is the least fun thing to do but it needs to be done.

4. Also realize that every day is a new day: If one day is a total bust realize that you can still aprricate the good days. Don't take those days for granted they can be the best days that show you that the bad days will end

There is a light to the end of every tunnel no matter how dark. 

Off to do my work now! 

Its safe to say...

I'm addicted to starbucks.

I need it.

Must keep calm and carry on....

Oh all the Elephants And Donkeys:

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Its that day we have all been waiting's election day.
Polling lines are long and people are very on edge.

Make your decision heard but don't make it offensive.
At the end of the day politics are not life or death...if you think so you may want to get your priorities in check.
However its amazed me how much politics are affecting peoples friendships, and their day to day lives...and even who they think is a good celebrity or not.
It's as if we are willing to put friendships on the line for politics...and this day only comes once every four years so why get so inflamed over something thats one day out of 365 days and only happens once every 1460 days?

If you are that passinoate about politcs you may need to find a hobby because honestly.
Presidents are just people, they are people who we want to lead us in the right direction.

Yes you can be a democrat or a republican however at the end of the day they are just another person like you and I.

It's one day out of the year so please try and take a chill pill or seven in some cases!
Keep Calm and Carry On!

I like smiling, smiling is my favorite

Sunday, November 4, 2012

There are so many reasons to smile but in case you were having problems thinking of some...Here are ten reasons why you should smile and always be positive. 
Happy sunday!

Friday, November 2, 2012

seeing perks of being a wallflower tonight....should I prepared to cry like a little girl.
Let the results come in soon!

sometimes you just have to...

Thursday, November 1, 2012

It is the only thing we have the power to do. 

Red Starbucks Cup, I Fill you up....Let's have a party.

This morning was the wonderful surprise to realize that one it was November first...Where has the year gone.
So much has happened in 2012 but I'm saving everything I have learned for sometime late December when the year is really almost over.

Anyways the second most amazing thing I woke up to this morning was a red starbucks cup and an eggnog latte.

It is so the little things in life that make us happy.
It was literally magical and all I could do was dance.  What more could this day have to offer! I guess I will find out! And to top it all off.....I have a bunch of school work to do.
What even.
I am in a boat with all other college kids who are heading to the end of their semester.
No sleep, more coffee, more red bull, oh and more red starbucks cups.

Sleepless in Atlanta

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

So it feel as if it is Tuesday not Wedesday. Part of that reason is that I pulled an all-nighter on monday night.
Had a research paper due, and a history test all in the same day. Plus I had a speech on monday. Want to talk about crazy. Can't believe that this semester is getting so crazy.

My starbucks crew gave me a nice little message on my cup. Thanks guys!

Any ways, I am about to crash yet again even though I got a good 16 hours of sleep yesterday.

Gave a speech on monday and getting my grade back today.

So ready for the weekend though.

I missed gossip girl and 90210 (I know my life is so hard)

And I slept through all of my t.v shows last night. (poor me)

The week has calmed down a bit but still much to do!
Can't wait to sit this weekend and do absolutely nothing.

Thinking about all of those effected by Sandy!
Hope you are all safe!

Why hello Ugg boot weather! Come and stay a while!

Monday, October 29, 2012

the first day of the winter and I get to wear a bulky sweater and my ugg boots.
today is going to be a great day!

And a late day, I have to finish a research paper and study for a test that I have.
So as I sit and eat my cereal I can only ask for one attention span to help me write the rest of this paper and to study for this test.
also giving a speech today.
Say hello to most likely the busiest week for the middle of the semester!

sunday funday cold day!

Sunday, October 28, 2012

Its a sunday funday!
And not only is it sunday but it's a cold sunday funday!
LOVE this cold weather.

Being all studious and fall savvy.
Love it!

Congrats Adele!

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

In other news! Adele had her baby boy!!
She is probably one of the other wonderful women that I look up to, along with Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Anne Hathaway, and Demi Lovato.
Her songs are empowering and I am sure her baby boy is going to inspire some happy songs for her baby boy. What a lucky baby. His lullaby's will be amazing.

Can't wait to see a picture of this precious boy!

Soon I will be doing math homework and studying my history and working on a research paper.
Oh the joys of the middle of the semester cramming sessions. And its not even like I'm behind.

Survival of the week.

Things that are defiantly going to make my week a little easier to get through::

Redbull: It gives me wings

Starbucks: Pumpkin spice latte love

L'occitane hand cream it is seriously the most amazing thing ever.

My yoga pants and t-shirts.

And Alex Clare, Florence and the Machine, and Mumford and sons.

                   So ready for winter break.

The Future Freaks Me Out

Monday, October 22, 2012

I am pretty sure I am not supposed to know where I will be in twenty years.
But I am stressed out that I will not be successful.
I don't know if maybe my emotions are fogging what is actually important.
Or if maybe I need a priorities check. But I feel as though if theres something I want more than anything its to go to a college that I want to go to.

I guess part of me went into major freak out mode today.
I wanted to have an answer today, and I know that thats kinda impossible to have but I think I was expecting more out of the situation then I received and I jumped ahead a bit and assumed that things were going to be ruined.

I mean its monday.
Monday is the worst day of the week after sunday.
I am ready to have Thursday (my friday)

I just want more clarity and less confusion.
I want to know about other colleges.
Why is college so expensive.
I don't understand.

Oh the things that I am left to ponder.

Rant rant rant.

Off to finish my work

random tidbits

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Oh here comes monday.
Time to plan out which nike shorts and yoga pants will be used for the next couple of days.
Wish my oh so fashionable clothes got more use when the semester was in session but honestly there is no point in trying to.
Takes too much time.
News has come that I will be eventually transferring to a better school *cough* UGA if I can maintain my GPA. (which is totally possible!)
Obsessed with this new Jcrew and Chicos shirt I got.
Thinking of actually wearing one of those tomorrow. So that would be a nice change.
Once upon a Time is on in less than 30 mins...Sooo excited. Monday, Tuesday and Wendesday are some of the best T.V days. Oh and Thursday when glee is actually on.
Looking forward to my morning pumpkin spice latte and public speaking class.
I am listening to the last glee episode songs.
That episode made me cry like a little girl.
SO good...even though all the cute relationships are gone....I still will always love the show.

In other unexpected random news.
I am writing an an essay for a glamour magazine contest.
Sooo excited for them to at least read it!

Once upon a time is literally right around the corner!
Keep calm and carry on.

Friday, October 19, 2012

Sometimes we just need a break
I have done nothing except a couple math problems and watching a season and a half of Greek. 
Thank you netflix. 
Tomorrow I am thinking of going on a mission for a creme winter sweater. 
And craving a pumpkin spice latte (surprise you?)
And dreaming of some new lilly pulizer dresses. 
A girl can dream right?
Keep it classy. 

Happy Friday!

Its the weekend! Lets get ready to have some fun!!

This Just Made My Day

Wednesday, October 17, 2012



Know that everyone you come across if fighting a battle. Realize that we all have insecurities. And sometimes those insecurities get the best of us. But its not what we feel on the outside its how we act even when we feel like we aren't pretty enough, smart enough, or even good enough. Each person that I come across I know is facing a battle. Keep your head up high darlin' things can only go up from here.
Keep Calm and Carry On

the pressure of being an "adult"

Monday, October 15, 2012

Sometimes we get so worked up over what being an adult is all about.
We turn 18 and automatically we think FREEDOM and ADULT HOOD and INDEPENDENCE.
However all of these things don't come when the clock strikes midnight on your 18th birthday they come with time.
And by time I don't mean a couple months.
Could be a year or two years, maybe even five.
And that's okay as long as you're not 30 and living in your moms house.
Being an adult is much more than freedom and independence
It's being responsible, its having experience, it's knowing how to handle situations.
Being an adult also entails that you know how to manage your time, your money, and your social life with your work life (which is totally managing your time...but still)

There is so much more to being "grown up"
And what we don't realize is that even though you turn 18 or 20 in my case, that you need to have it all figured out.
Goodness knows I don't.
Don't rush your years of being somewhat carefree.
I promise:
To learn from my mistakes.
Take advice when needed. (there are about three people I'll take advice from..yes im stubborn)
Listen to my parents...(or learn after I do the opposite of what they say)
Try new things that I wouldn't normally try.
To be honest with myself on where I am in life.
And not be afraid to fall to the bottom.
And be able to know that I have the strength to climb to the top again.

The apple may fall far from the tree, but it always seems to find a way to a basket.

Stay young, stay preppy, and stay positive

Prude is a relative term

This is how I feel all the time.
Is it so hard to find a decent man?
That will treat you right and not like something in return.
Its crazy the things men do to get a woman....or occasionally get in her pants (sorry boys not happening)
Which makes women more skeptical (myself included) about mens motives when they do something nice for us.
So it leads me to this.
I am not going to just bend around backwards for any man.
This may make me a prude however in my eyes.
I am just being "highly selective" and goodness knows sometimes we have to be.

Where are my ugg boots??

What a wonderful morning to have a pumpkin spice latte in hand.
Its a bit nippy outside but its nice.

I am so excited for ugg weather.
I keep trying to make it ugg weather but I can't do it.

I am so excited for the temperature to go under 50degrees
I even tried wearing my beloved ugg moccasins but its just not that time yet.

Its an awkward inbetween seasons period.

I have a slight obsession with winter and all of the fun fashions.
Will have to go into that later.

Happy Monday Folks!

once upon a time starbucks had delivery

Sunday, October 14, 2012

Finally went to starbucks and got a coffee.
Thank goodness!
Of course it was a pumpkin spice latte.
Actually switched it up for a frappachino.
I remember why I only like those in the summer.
They make me cold!

Starbucks should do delivery.
I would pay for that.


Tonight and tomorrow night are going to be good t.v nights.

First Once Upon A Time...loveee it!

Then Monday night is..Gossip Girl, 90210, and switched and birth...its a fantastic t.v night!

Blake Lively is amazing, I adore her fashion and she looks perfect even with out make up. (serious jealousy brewing over here...kindof)

Till later

Middle of the semester blues

I haven't had coffee yet today.
I am dragging around.
We ran out of milk in my house so I can't make a latte.
This is a problem

I am feeling like sleep is the best option at the moment.
sleep sleep sleep.
But you see I have a bunch of school work to do.

First order of business coffee.
Then after coffee...comes the dreaded studying and reading.

Why can't it just do itself.


Camels are Cute

Thursday, October 11, 2012

for some reason I just cant get enough of camels, they are this obsession that I love. Kate Spade came out with this wonderful line of almost camel everything just in time. 
I have the wonderful camel wallet, and the camel earrings.

Literally the cutest idea. 

I know that people find them to be disgusting animals but after you get over the fact that they can be slightly disgusting they are the cutest animal to me.

I feel as if this camel obsession will be lasting with me through the winter season as well. 

Halloween is around the corner

I am ready!

What girl doesnt like getting dressed up and wearing a hopefully cute costume and going to a party and spending time with her friends.

We are having a party this year, I am so excited.
I am feeling like an upper east side New York party planner and I love it.

Pinterest has been fueling my ideas for what should be done.

Thinking of making mummy dogs. ( crescent dough with a mini hot dog).
And I am going to go find some type of costume, I am not going to buy my costume though.

I found this wonderful boho chic shop, that has all sorts of bits and ends to make an amazing halloween costume.
Bring on the thrifting!

Everything should just stay pumpkin till thanksgiving.
Pumpkin everything is what is needed for a while..
Though part of me is so ready for gingerbread and eggnog lattes.
/Oh the joys of the ever so wonderful holiday season feel as though they are right around the corner!

Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Tory Burch...oh my!

I am a girl who is obsessed with fashion and most importantly labels.
Some may say that it's a bad thing, I just think it's an expensive hobby.
I am a girl who is obsessed with starbucks lattes, black coffee makes me sad.
If it's not flavored I won't drink it.

Kate spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Coach, Chanel...I mean my list just goes on and on.

You are in for a treat for this is where I will be posting all of my lovely details of my latest obessions, my fantastic fashion cravings, and of course a dash of what is going on when it comes to men.

Labels, Clothes, starbucks, and Men.
What more could you want?
