making my home coming dress

HOCO.jpg

 

It’s homecoming season. This was my first homecoming, I actually went to two of them, but I ended up making my dress. It was a challenge but I’m very happy with the outcome. I also ended up saving A LOT of money which is always a benefit. I wanted to share this process to show an overlook at the making of a homecoming dress, and if anyone has questions – feel free to leave a comment or fill out the contact form!

my september bullet journal

 

 

A new month, new bullet journal spread. I got a bigger bullet journal, after finishing my last one at the end of summer. This has more room, which is perfect for the school year and my long to-do lists. The general layout stayed the same, but the theme this month was just a bunch of cloud doodles. I kept it minimalistic and clean. If you have a bullet journal, feel free to ask questions or leave a link in the comments!

the making of a vision board

RO_-7

 

What else is there to do on a summer morning except to make a vision board. I like having order in my life, having a plan, a schedule. I obviously had to be even more planned and organized out, which led me to make a vision board. My sister and I cut things out of fashion magazines that “spoke to us”. What spoke to me were headlines about the women joining Congress. What spoke to my sister were ads for chocolate bars. That doesn’t matter, but we had fun collaging and were able to get through half a season of friends.

my may bullet journal spread, pinterest themed!

may bullet journal.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited for this spread because it was by far my favorite bullet journal spread I’ve ever done. I used Pinterest to find inspiration for these pages after developing a color scheme. The core colors are a few shades of blue, a bright red, a light pink, and grey. I definitely did not keep it minimalistic. After determining that I wanted to make this month extra special, I decided to start early. This took a lot more time than my usual spreads, although if you do want to see those posts, keep reading to the end for all of those links. Enjoy!

spring look book

 

Hello Everyone! Since the weather was kind of off, not all of these pictures were from the day I wore them. Some of the outfits were featured in other blog posts, so I reused those pictures for this post. Not all of these outfits are very “springy” because the weather in Virginia is all over the place. I also jumped around during the week to my favorite looks. Let me know in the comments, your favorite look from your spring break. Enjoy!

Hello Everyone! During spring break, I finished all of my homework and studying early. This led me to sew something. I wanted to do something really creative and artistic and overall new.

Shirt_6

 

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited about this post! I recently realized how the t-shirts I have. My collection is mainly made up of tourist/gift shop shirts and cute t-shirts. There are also even more categories past those two subcategories, such as cropped, oversized, etc. Instead of styling 1 shirt 5 ways, I wanted to style 5 different t-shirts for a few different styles. Altogether, I was really in the mood for a fashion-styling post. That’s also where the roots of this blog are from, fashion + stuff *woah, i am such a fashionista*. Enjoy!

Hello Everyone! I am soooo excited about this post because this is probably my favorite spread I’ve ever done.

I’ll post an overview of the bullet journal set up on my Instagram, but this post is about my March Monthly spread. In the past, I used regular lined notes books, but this is my first time using a dotted book.
