Playing In the Sun

The other day, my oldest friend from high school and I decided to get together to have a cute little photoshoot. We love photography and I wanted to test my new camera that I got over a year ago and haven’t really used it. So we decided to go to a local park that had a farm and a few cute animals and decided to take rustic pictures.

I suggest if you are trying to catch up with old high school friends, try something that you both enjoy and make a day out of it. No matter how hot it may be outside, you can always end up grabbing some ice cream later to cool down.

Having been home for about 2 months now from South Carolina, I have become a little southern girl with my cowboy boots. I was not expecting to come home with a love for preppy clothes, cowboy boots, and southern hospitality but, apparently, I do. Still not a big fan of Lilly Pulitzer, oops!

Happy Fourth Of July! Stay safe, and enjoy yourself and I will see y’all soon!

Dorm Room Essentials from Bed, Bath and Beyond*

I have been waiting for this this time of year to finally buy materials for my dorm room. There was never an idea what I had wanted to do to my room for theme wise, it is rather about what I like and incorporate with everything else. I am the type of person who loves color, more like too much color, so I decided to buy items that will not make my side of the room like a rainbow and won’t clash with my roommate and her colors.

I love the colors blue and gray and that they were the perfect soft touch to my room. Being extremely into fashion, I had to buy a set of hangers for all of my clothes. I think these hangers are useful because they are quite slim that no matter how many pieces of clothing I have, I would still have some room left in the closet. They have rubber ends so it helps keeping the clothes from falling off.

The gray box is a cute little bin for under bed storage, which includes striped fabric inside. I wanted something that could be neutral in the room and I was never the biggest fan of the big, see through, plastic containers. I liked the ones from Bed. Bath and Beyond because they came in a few different sizes and colors such as mint, black and gray.

I bought a small make up holder because, other than the pretty blue color, I do not have the largest collection of makeup. If you are looking for something that holds all of your makeup, think of the size of your collection. There are a few different sizes available, not matter how big the collection may be. A trick that I use is that I like to keep all of my makeup brushes in a pencil holder, it is organized and makes the room pretty based on the design of it.

This cute little garbage can was pretty unique and small enough to hide underneath my desk. I wasn’t too interested in those metal trashcans so I decided to find something different. The trashcan comes in a few different colors, including splash paint, which I had wanted to get. To keep the colors neutral, I opted for this one.

Being a college student, laundry is one of the big experiences that I will have to go through. I decided to buy a laundry bag that is completely durable and cute at the same time. Who says laundry has to be mundane? So to make it fun, I had to buy something that I love, especially one with gold polka dots.

Bed, Bath and Beyond has helped me find my college essentials without making it so difficult. I love shopping here for college materials because they have basic and unique finds at decent prices. I also love their decor and bedding that is reasonable for college student budgets. Bed, Bath and Beyond has helped me find everything on my list for my dorm.

Prom 2016

High school has finally ended for me, so despite my busy schedule I had one last hurrah with my friends at prom. I knew there was a lot of hype around prom but I went in with an open mind and I had one of the best nights.

I had gone with a date, who I had asked, but it is perfectly fine going with just friends and not with a date. The whole date concept is something that is implanted in our heads so I thought it would be better to go with a good friend of mine to have fun one night before I leave for school.

My track teammate mentioned I looked like Angelina Jolie in my dress and I literally died! After a fun night at prom we ended up at a burger joint by my school known as Steak and Shake where we pretended to be rich people who wear such clothing as an everyday thing. Although my feet did hurt, I could not have asked for anything else. I am going to miss everyone next year.

Review: Her Campus Book

Going to college may seem like the best four years of your life when you get to grow up, but at the same time, it is the scariest. Being a junior in high school has me thinking on where to go to school based on academics, the campus and the food. But it keeps me blinded about the other situations that I might face when I reach orientation.

Being an Her Campus High School Ambassador and apart of the Her Campus Blogger Network, I was excited to hear about their new book. It is not like those books where it tells you what is the better school, but rather how to get through college and become apart of the grown up world.

The Her Campus Guide to College gives more insight on how to create relationships, be aware of creepers, being healthy and how finding a job once graduation is over.

I love that this book shows real life situations and how to be able to handle them and not have it end like a Halloween episode of Pretty Little Liars. It is a great idea for parents to give to the growing children to give them guidance when transitioning to a higher level of school or college seniors ready to tackle the new world of finding a job. Share it with your friends and even share it with your grandmother who wants to get back into college.

Everyone can find help within this book and I promise that you will not gain the Freshmen 15. You will not regret getting this book as there is so much to know and prepare for, including the Sorority life and passing finals.

Find this book on Amazon and Barnes & Nobles. Check out Her Campus for more!

And I promise that it completes your college bookshelf (and your artsy dorm decor).

Thank you to Her Campus for partnering with me on this post. All opinions are my own.

1. I have a strong desire to travel, but I hate planes. I really cannot go by car much longer either as sitting just makes me anxious after a few hours. Despite wanting to go to London, Sydney and L.A. I cannot travel on a plane for a little more than 4 hours or else I also get anxious. As you can see I get anxious a lot.
2. A Cinderella Story is my favorite movie of all time. The movie with Hillary Duff as the main girl. I love the music they play along with the story line, I am still waiting as the outcast girl to have a kiss in the rain with the quarterback of the football team.

Favorite moment right there! ^
3. My music is completely random. Although I cannot sing I do sing to different genres of songs from the Frozen soundtrack to All Time Low to Iggy Azalea.
4. I have an obsession with bunnies! Even though I had one when I was 8, I really started wanting one again. Maybe name her Alice. I even have a bunny shaped lamp.
5. I am a hopeless romantic. If you haven’t known, I love the whole Romeo and Juliet type of stories, make sure it has a happy ending. I hope one day I can get my happy ending despite the horrors of real life.
6. The Gallagher Girls Series is my favorite series of all time! I have read each book about 5 times and I still love them. The funny moment is I feel like Cammie Morgan and I are like one person.
7. I named a sack of sugar Lucas Ashton Calum Clifford. In Psych class we had to carry around a sack of sugar and pretend it was a baby so I named it after the members of my favorite band 5 Seconds of Summer.
I would like to thank you for reading my posts along with sticking with my random posts whatever they may be about.
I kind of literally went through my Twitter feed to figure on what to put as my facts and items.

Florida Day 3: DisneyWorld and MGM

We have finally got to the last posts of my trip to Florida! It has taken me a little over a month to get this far, but we’ve made it! I wished that I have been able to do more and go on more rides but hopefully next time!

Hello Mr. Crane, nice to see you there! Do you mind hiding while I try to take a picture? Thank you!

Two Wendys and a Peter! Love you mister Peter Pan! I swear to God, I waited maybe an hour or so (maybe exaggerating) to meet his awesome character. The line consisted mostly of teenage girls who love how he will never be corrupted by growing up. I feel the same love for Peter but he gives me this feeling of being taken away to unknown places from the terrors of adulthood. You will never guess but I was extremely nervous to even be a few feet from him. Let’s just say I am not a pirate and the watch on my necklace won’t let me know what time it is to go home.

We ended up at the Grand Floridian for lunch! Other than the few restaurants they had, we ended up eating where they served breakfast. But the hotel was extremely beautiful! There was a wedding there and the bride looked so pretty and I told my mom about it and she stated that I shouldn’t be getting married at Disney. Oh well.

We had gotten on the bus from the hotel off to MGM for the ending part of the trip! I wish I done more than complain about my feet hurting but I absolutely loved it! I was always into the whole movie idea and it was just incredible! We went on the Great Movie Ride and I saw a clip of my favorite movie star, Audrey Hepburn at the end. I realized why I wanted to be an actress, not because it is fun to be someone else for a change but to be part of a long lasting legacy.

Hey people! I am in NYC!

Florida Day 2: Harry Potter and Epcot

I am not someone to go on crazy roller coasters and waiting in long lines by myself so I would not say that Universal was the best ever. I have been obsessed with Harry Potter since I was ten and I kind of have a strong obsession with both the movies and the books and well that is how my love for England started! First thing in the morning, after having my delicious Mickey Mouse shaped waffles, my grandmother and I headed to Universal.098

As soon as I stepped through the gates of Hogmeade, I fell in love. I knew I was home. 100 101

My new buddy. It was kind of weird that everyone was asking if I was from New York, only in my head.

I absolutely loved it there! I tried Butterbeer, a little too sweet to finish, along with a wand! I had gotten Fleur Delacour which was pretty cool and I will never know what I will do with it until I have discovered my unknown powers and save the world from evil!

Epcot was not as exciting as I remember, but it was fun to see all the different sights that they held. France and the United Kingdom were my favorite and they were both magical.

I loved these kids Peter Pan and Wendy costumes!
