Confidence

Leave a comment


So the last few months have been pivotal for the changes I had planned on making in my life. I’m proud to say I have made a lot of key changes that have had extremely good results. The main issue that I’ve been dealing with is being resilient in the face of negative influences. I think the main thing I’ve learned is that if someone is always being negative and talking about what they hate about themselves/the world around them, that people are going to start believing them. If you hate yourself, everyone else is going to eventually as well. I know it’s not easy for some people to be confident, but I truly believe it’s the sole factor that will motivate you to do what you need/want to do.

If there’s anything I’ve learned in college / living in a house with 30+ girls, it’s that everyone is fuckin weird. And it’s so annoying that people get all hung up on their weirdness. Once you embrace how weird / embarrassing everything you do is, you’ll realize just how weird the world is, and it’s liberating as hell.

I truly feel that one you realize how awesome you are, other people will see it. That leads to strong friendships, good romantic relationships, lasting business connections, and overall you’ll get respect from anyone you meet.
Basically just decide what you want to be and do, and then rock it.

Charity Water

Leave a comment


My friend Kristin (Kristin’s In Rome) and I have recently started a personal campaign for Charity:Water called Gelato’d In Rome. She is studying abroad in Rome, and I am working on the campaign stateside. The non-profit organization provides third-world countries with ways to get clean drinking water. This is something that I have become very passionate about, so we are trying to raise $1,000. That will help 50 people! I am asking for donations in ANY amount. Even a dollar can help. If you are unable to donate, please help us out by passing this information on to those around you who would be willing to donate. Here is the link to our campaign:

So in keeping with New Years traditions, I’m going to switch things up, and go in a new direction with this blog. Since before a lot of the reason I did this was to organize my inspiration, I don’t really need to do that now because of pinterest. Since I finally decided what to do with my life (event planning) I’m going to a lot of posts about that and my own craft/DIY projects. I think I’m going to do more writing as well. There will still be random posts about like food and fashion and everything, but I just want to get a little more specific.

 

Have a wonderful day! :)

MY BIRTHDAY!

Zomg I’m another year old!

I might seriously try to make those. But seriously, if anyone wants me to be happy on this most special of days; here is my birthday wish list:

Okay just kidding. Kindof.

But I wouldn’t mind if someone just felt like giving me an unlimited credit card to spend soley on shoes. Haha.

Awww. Okay but seriously if anyone wants to make me the happiest muhfucka and you failed at getting any of the above items, I’ll always settle for all the seasons of Golden Girls on DVD. And I’m actually serious about that one hahaha. I love that shit.

Alright but in all seriousness it’s my birthday so it’s time to go out on the town! Peace and Love!

Alright so I’m going to show you guys what I did for these crafts:

Bought this frame at Good Will for under a dollar. I originally wanted to just do the inside yellow and keep the gray border, but the spray paint kindof got everywhere and it just turned out to be a hassle.

So I had a paper towel by this to wipe the spray paint off my hands, and the wind blew it onto the frame and made these weird marks and when I tried spray painting over it, you could still tell. So I just did it all over and it ended up looking kindof cool.

I couldn’t figure out how to get the hooks into the frame to hold the necklaces so I just hooked them over the top. It looked great for recruitment, but it ended up being kindof a pain in the ass, so it’s currently being unused on the top shelf of my closet. I’m going to take it home to have my Dad help me over break. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

How to Make a Shared Room Cute (Sorority / Dorm Room)

Leave a comment


So, when you share a room with 3 other people and have to deal with 2 bunk beds and numerous dressers and everyone’s shit, you have to make it cute, especially for sorority recruitment. My sorority house is a Historical Landmark, so we can’t paint or do anything to make it look more modern because it has too look like it originally did. I have a love-hate relationship with this fact because I loveeee modern decor. Here’s what I did to make my little niche cute.

Keep checking back to see the rest of what I did for my room!

You’re Da Bomb Favors

Leave a comment


So I’m a dumbass and forgot to take a picture of my final product but this is what inspired me to make my You’re Da Bomb favors for all of our new pledges for Initiation.

We have this tradition where we set out little goodie bags and throughout our I-Week, the older members put all sorts of cute little goodies in there for all of the girls. It ranges from candy to notes to mixed-tape style cd’s, you name it. Here’s what I did:

I guess I’m not the only dumbass because I just noticed that the ones I was inspired by isn’t even grammatically correct. (Your the bomb) haha.
