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:

Belated Thanksgiving Post

2 Comments


My Thanksgiving break couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m in that point of the semester where I’m just about checked out of school. It seems almost everyone I’ve talked to is in that same boat, which is comforting (knowing I’m not alone) but also kindof bad. I was so excited to see my family and do some Black Friday shopping. My dad and sisters surprised me by building me a room! When I went off to college my youngest sisters used to share a room but one of them took my old room, so when I’d come home for breaks I was sleeping on the couch and it sucked. Not gonna lie, I definitely let everyone know how much I hated it. But I never in a million years expected anyone to do anything about it! It’s not completely done, and I’m excited because I always need a project to work on and it has become my winter break project for this year. I’ll for sure have a lot of pictures up.

Here is some random Thanksgiving stuff I came across online and liked. Keep checking back because I’m FINALLY going to post all of the furniture up-cycles I’ve done, and a bunch of awesome gift ideas from our initiation week.

You could have Thanksgiving anytime with this single serving sweet potato!

I have so much to be thankful for 🙂 Especially all of my followers! Thanks for the supportttt.

Edit: New Dress!

The strap on the red dress was super loose and annoying and wouldn’t stop falling down so I decided to change into this dress from Charolette Russe 🙂

Wedding! [Warning there’s a mirror pic in this post! Hahh]

I’m soooo excited for the wedding I’m going to today!

Guess Shoes- Got them for $40!

Windsor Dress
And for the record I think it’s extremely lame to take a picture of yourself in the mirror, but all of my sisters are getting ready and wouldn’t take a picture until they’re done and I don’t feel like waiting.

Finally splurged and got the Victoria’s Secret slip! 🙂

Have a love-filled day!

Giftspiration – Love Pocket

Leave a comment


I’m all about doing random sweet little things for people lately. I just feel like it’s really important to slow down and be mindful of your relationships. Life is seriously way too quick to get caught up in dumb drama. Plus, everyone feels good when you do little nice things for them here and there.

These love pockets are super simple and cheap to make. You could fill them with anything you want, but I like the idea of candy, it gives it a little pop of color. Just take a doily or even paper that you cut into your own design and sew two of them together with the surprise inside. Don’t know where I got this picture from but it’s an adorable idea!
