Happy Saturday!

Hey everyone!
     Sorry I haven't posted as often as I did over the summer. The fall semester has started, and it's been very hectic. I added another major, so that's been crazy. I'm settling in, though, and getting used to my schedule, so expect more posts! They're coming, I promise. Thanks for your patience :]

Thought this was too cute not to post. Sleepy Mona.

Summer Obsequies

Hi friends!
     Since summer is coming to a close, I thought titling this after the Emily Dickinson poem, "Summer Obsequies" would be appropriate. I had this casual, hippie boho thing going on today, walking around the garden acting like I have a green thumb, paying my respects to summer and getting ready to move into fall.

Get Fit with Yogamazing

Hi friends,
     This isn't my regular post, but I wanted to share one of my favorite ways to stay fit: yoga! When I don't feel like leaving my room, yoga is a great way to get some exercise.

      Yogamazing, by Chaz Rough, is my favorite yoga podcast. If you're new to yoga, he does a good job of talking you through the poses. I'm not a beginner, though, and I still like them. They're free to download off Itunes and range from 15-30 minutes. Its a perfect length for when you want to get a quick workout in. There are a bunch of his videos on Youtube, too. I recommend checking it out!

These Headbands Are a Steal

Hi friends,
     I went on a hunt for headbands today. Every store only seems to have the headwraps that go all the way around, which look weird with my short hair most times. Luckily, Claire's saved the day with a bunch of reasonably priced headbands. They had a whole wall of them. Some were a little too girly and young, granted it is Claire's, but sifting through the racks, I found some that were appropriate for my age and pretty cool.

(They were also buy one get half off when I got them. Yay sales!)

I purchased the top two. I'm excited to start wearing them!

Icon Inspiration: Ashlyn Harris

Hi people,
     My girlfriend is a big women's soccer fan, so she suggested I do a post about Ashlyn Harris. I took a look at some pictures of her and thought that she had a really cool style. This chick has a badass approach to fashion.

Throwback Thursday III

Hi friends,
     This is a quick throwback from a family party a few years ago. We were playing Bocce.

The dress was one of my favorites, but got waaaaay too short. It was from Forever 21, but I haven't seen any dresses like it from them again. The shoes were from Payless and the bracelet was my grandmothers.

My Mascara Routine

Hi friends,
     Mascara routine? That sounds weird, right? I'm very particular about how I apply my mascara, though, so I thought I could take you through my process. It's pretty quick and the best method I've found to avoid spidery lashes and dark smudging under the eyes.

Fight clumpy, smudged, and undefined lashes!

If Nothing Ever Changed, There'd Be No Butterflies

Hi friends,
     This is a pretty park by my house. It's a great space, so Ally and I decided to experiment with some picture-taking. We had fun, and got to see a wedding! :]

Pulling a Marilyn because of this wind! 

Meh, I dunno why the picture quality sunk once I uploaded them to blogger. They looked fine on my computer. Huh. Oh well.

Favorite Pins of the Week: College Edition

Hi friends,
     Yay, it's time for more Pinterest things! Since I'm back on campus, this post caters specifically to college-life.

1. The Plank Challenge
    I've got a gym on campus, but it's nice to get a workout without leaving my room. I just finished it, but I'm gonna start again.

2. Vegan Crockpot Meals
    I've got an on campus apartment this semester! Best part? It's got a kitchen. I can make these on the     weekends when I have time, so I have meals during the week.

3. Yoga Mat Flip Flops
    AKA free shower shoes

4. Rain Boots
    At my school, rain boots are a must!

What are some of your back-to-school tips or college must-haves?

Indian Bridal Inspiration

Hi friends,
      In my opinion, there is hardly anything more visually appealing than an Indian wedding. The ornate gold details, beautiful tradition, dramatic makeup, jewelry! Nothing better. Here's some lovely Indian wedding inspiration compliments of pictures I found on Pinterest.

Oh, Deer

Hi friends, 
    Pink, polka dots, friendly woodland creatures, I might as well be in a disney movie...kinda. The woodland creatures part refers to my deer necklace and owl shoes not my cat. My cat thought she was being helpful by jumping on me while I was trying to take the pictures. She was not, but I did manage to get a couple shots where she wasn't climbing all over me.

How Does a Man on the Moon Cut His Hair?

Eclipse it!

Hi friends,
      Like the joke? Tacky jokes are the best. Speaking of planets, I found this awesome Etsy shop, Jerseymaids! She makes crazy awesome galaxy jewelry and I want all of it! I don't think you understand how badly I need the galaxy headband...

Over the Knee Sock Inspiration

Hi guys,
     Is it fall yet? Can I wear my new over-the-knee socks now? Here are a few different ways to wear them (thanks, Pinterest!). I think grunge and boho are my favorite styles to pair them with. The girl in this first picture has great style!
