Happy Halloween

 Happy Halloween Everyone!

Family Times

 {My mommy and I}

Last May, I made a photo book for my mom.  It was from my dad and I for her birthday/ mother's day.  I found the photos I used and decided it would be fun to share a couple of my favorite.

5 Things

{Corn beef hash Sandwich.  
This pictures was actually taken a couple of 
weeks ago but I'm still obsessing over how good it was!} 

This week I decided to do a list of 5 things I'm loving right now, but I couldn't arrow it down.  So instead of leaving out some things I decided why not just make it 8 things that I loving.  Here are 8 things that I'm currently loving.
{These AMAZING  Miu Miu shoes 
via Blonde Salad!  If only I could afford $890 shoes.}
{This great picture of Bailey of this 
wonderful blog The Joyful Shoe Horn}
{I love the Sally Hansen Salon Effects.   
I wore this on my 5 day backpacking trip and 
they still looked good as new by the end.  
I can't wait to get some sparkly ones for Halloween.}
 {This book is absolutely hilarious. 
I haven't finished it because school work has gotten 
in the way, but it worth looking into.} 
{I know the photo of Bailey was already one of my things,
but being sick and having this cute things to cuddle
has definitely been a plus.}
{This is a hand-me-down Donney and Bourke from 
my mother.  It is the perfect size for running
a quick errand.}
{Cosmo!  Finally it came in the mail.  
I have been obsessively checking the mail
all month waiting for it.}

Sex In The City

Last night Talia and I were watching Sex In The City and Carrie was wearing the cutest outfit ever.  I decided to come up with my version of her outfit and share it with you guys.  I love how the Mickey Mouse shirt contrasts the formal look of the outfit.  Carrie was wearing this out to dinner with the girls and Burger but I think you could totally wear this both day and night.

DIY Bracelet

I made this beautiful wrap bracelet last night.  I followed the instructions from the blog Honestly WTF and it turned out great.  This is just what happens to your bed though when you choose to this instead of homework.

Rent The Runway

I have super exciting news!  I have an opportunity to land a position with the company Rent The Runway as a new blogger.  How amazing is that?  For those of you who don't know what Rent The Runway is, it is an amazing website that allows you to rent designer dresses for a fraction of the retail price. 

I need everyone's help though!  I need to show that I qualified for this job by registering 100 people on their website. This shows that I have blogging skills and that my blog is reaching people. So if you could please click on the link Rent The Runway and register it would be amazing. You can also go to their facebook and like their page.  Any way that you can help me really is appreciated!  Go check it out.

J. Crew

I seem to just be on a roll with things I'm obsessing over.  Saturday it was Michael Kors and today it is J. Crew.  I love how put together and well thought out their outfits are.  They have such key pieces that really allow for mixing and matching.  For instance, the denim button up; it goes so well under the blazer, pink sweater, and the poncho.  The new arrivals make me want to go shopping.  There are so many great pieces that I could do so much with.  Too bad I'm a poor college student, so I will just have to dream.

I have an obsession with rings.  I love rings with any outfit.  If it wasn't over kill I would wear a ring on every finger, every day.  Most of my rings are silver, so I have been trying to find some new gold rings.  Well I found them.  Okay, so they aren't the cheapest, but I love them!  They are my Michael Kors, who I love, so I couldn't resist.

My Birthday

 Yesterday was my birthday!  It is my favorite day of the year.  I think everyone should have to day off from responsibilities on their birthday.  After all it is a day all about you.

Last night Derek took me out to dinner to the Pizza Research Institute.  It was delicious!  I had an amazing coffee drink called a Yuppie Hell.  It was french roast coffee with coconut milk.  Derek had honey lemonade and we ordered half the special, half apple walnut pizza.

After Dinner Michelle had invited over Ashley, Kelsey, Julia, Talia, and Ang to help me celebrate my birthday.  It was so much fun having all the girls over.  It was one of the best birthdays that I have ever had.
