it is officially november!! cue the holiday music, red cups, and yummy desserts. i am so extremely excited for this month and the upcoming holiday season! november has been and always will be one of my favorite months of the year because after daylight savings on sunday things start to feel that much cozier. i’m so excited to spend most of the weekends this month relaxing on the couch with holiday music, cozy socks, and a few good reads.
here’s what i’m loving this friday!
one . red cups
[my very first red cup of the season – well documented of course! nothing makes me happier than that little cup of cheer at 8 am! my favorite holiday drink is also officially out as well – skinny peppermint mocha! what’s yours?]
[i still need to have these heels. sam edelman himself is coming to ohio state tomorrow for a fashion show benefitting a cause near and dear to my heart – buckeyethon! i’m so excited to play dress up with my best friend and have so much fun at the event!]
have a fabulous weekend and go treat yourself to your favorite holiday drink! you all deserve it!
after two weeks of crazy out of control packing and finishing summer work and saying goodbye to friends and family i am back at school! today was my first day of junior year and after hearing all three professors today talk about how there’s no excuses for missing classes because we’re not little underclassmen anymore, reality has set back in. these next two years will be it before i’m thrown into the real world and the real life twentysomething job search….HELP.
on a less intense note, i’m buried under j.crew bags and tupperware boxes filled with pretty things for my new/old apartment (same place, no roomie, hello decorating frenzy)
there will be pictures to come once i have a majority of it decorated and presentable but here’s what’s inspiring the design!
[never enough monograms]
[navy is my favorite color]
[lilly things….i made these!]
[cape cod inspired guest bath]
since i am finally back to school and not working crazy hours anymore, expect to hear from me a lot more!! i’m also working my way through a cookbook, stories to come i’m sure!!
i am very much a crafter. that being said, i am very much ocd when it comes to crafting. i love straight, clean lines and if something gets messy you can bet that i’ll be redoing the entire project.
on a complete whim in michael’s, i decided to buy a large wooden S to decorate and hang in my bedroom. being the lilly pulitzer obsessive that i am, i mod podged different prints onto my S until it was covered.
for a total of $3.00 i think the finished product came out pretty cute! it looks adorable hanging on my wall because my bedroom is neutrally colored so the bright colors definitely add some pop!
