Back To School Link Up

Original image here
Hey there everyone! It's that time of year again!! Some people are already back at school and others are just getting ready. I, myself, am just getting excited for the back to school season even though this is the first time I won't be going back to school.

With so much inspiration on the internet, I thought a link up of various back to school themed posts would give us all a variety of sources all in one place!

Rules for the Link Up

  1. Your post must be back to school themed. This is very general so get creative! Outfits, makeup, hair, organization, dorm room, etc. 
  2. You can share a link to a post you created any day (not just today)
  3. Link back to this site so that your readers can get even more inspiration!
  4. You MUST visit the person's blog who linked before you and leave a comment! Let's make friends, inspire, and help each other out!
Feel free to comment below introducing yourself and what your back to school post is about!

Back to School Bags

(Jeremy and I - August 23, 2010)

It's absolutely insane to me that this picture was taken almost exactly four years ago on my very first day of college. For the first time, it's really hitting me that I won't be going to school anymore. Nonetheless, back to school season aka fall aka school supplies season is my FAVORITE time of year. I get so excited to buy school supplies haha! Even though I won't be going to school I'll still be stocking up on notebooks and highlighters. And with all the back to school sales going on, I'll probably even shop for a new bag!

Healthy, Full Lips + DIY Lip Scrub

Hey there everyone!
Today I wanted to share my lip care routine and a simple DIY lip scrub. By using natural ingredients you're not only saving $$ but you're also not accidentally eating those weird tasting ingredients in store bought scrubs. I love this scrub because it's so simple, tasty, and quick. Combined with my favorite lip balm and a neutral lip liner, I've found the perfect way to make my lips look naturally fuller!!

July Favorites

July Favorites

Happy August everyone! Although I've already posted in August and I'm a bit late for my July Favorites, I figured I'd share them with you all because not only have they been my favorites for July, they've been my favorites all summer long!

So without further ado- here are my favs!!

  1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup: I love this makeup and it's held up in my sweatiest of days- You can check out a post I did about this makeup in combination with sunscreen here.
  2. Faux Leather Bag: I purchased mine from Forever21 and I absolutely love it! It makes any outfit look way more put together!!
  3. Birkenstock style shoes: While I don't own a pair of Birkenstock brand sandals, I do have a few knock off versions from other brands! You can check out a post I did on these here.
  4. Nars Lipstick in Pago Pago: Love this lipstick! Perfect "Your lips but better" color.
  5. A Chunky Silver Chain Necklace: I've loved the chunky necklace trend and I love my necklace even more because I scored it from the CottonOn sale section for $2.
  6. RayBan Boyfried Flat Top Frames: I saw these glasses and immediately fell in love! They are so cool and look really good on everyone! They're my first pair of expensive sunglasses everr, so I treat them as if they were babies.
  7. Bralettes: I love the relaxed feel of a bralette- they look soo cute with a shirt that shoes the straps a little bit and some lace peeks out. 
  8. Floral Kimono: I stopped by a Fashion Q randomly on my way to a dinner party and I stumbled upon the cutest floral kimono that was similar to the one pictured. I love that it has a black background so it's not too in your face floral.
  9. Vans High Top: I love these kicks for a relaxed day when I still want to look fashionable. They give a cool skater vibe!
  10. Lastly, a forever favorite- Flannels. They are seriously a necessity in my wardrobe. I have tons and tons of flannels and lucky for me I don't usually have to purchased them because I just steal them from Jeremy. 
Let me know what your favorites are for July or just the summer in general!! I would love to hear the things you guys are loving!! :)

Don't Trip Tie Dye Sneakers

Hey there everyone!
Today I'm back with a pretty cool DIY. I've recently become obsessed with Unif Clothing and I adore the entire line. Some things are a bit outrageous and not my style but still totally cute. The only problem... the price tag. I'm a firm believer that casual clothing (unless they're basics that will last forever) should not come with a hefty price tag. Trends come and go, so why waste a ton of money on something that will soon be "sooo yesterday." 

Hence this DIY! I was browsing the site and saw these "Don't Trip" tie dye sneakers. I immediately fell in love but was heartbroken when I saw the $120 price. 

Check out this easy way to get your own tie dye sneakers that can say whatever you want for a fraction of the cost.  (Ahem *Less than $20!!*)
