Happy 2015!! How was everyone’s NYE? I spent the night back at school with my best friends, which is always a good time. I set up a backdrop for photos, which in my mind looked much better, but I’m still pretty satisfied with how it turned out. I mean, it’s on the staircase of a college house basement. It worked for what I wanted though – just a little New Year’s flare. I wore head-to-toe Forever 21, keeping it pretty casual in a plain black shift dress, booties, and a silver statement necklace for a little extra oomph. Those booties also proved to not be as comfortable as I thought when I wore them out a previous night, probably because they’re still brand new and I was wearing them for hours – and walking around town. Yikes. Needless to say I was plenty happy to be taking them off at the end of the night.

Anyway, I’m feeling some seriously good vibes about 2015 and I hope you all are too. Here’s to a new year of fun, fashion, and TEACHING!



My apologies for the lack of posts the last month.. It’s been such a whirlwind lately. On top of completing seminar papers and projects, I was preparing for graduation, working, and trying to take in the last few weeks of college in the best way possible.

Although I only “fake” graduated (I’ll be student teaching in the Fall), I am still feeling the same emotions as my roommates and friends. How did four years go by so quickly? How do we move on from here? It’s incredible how many memories we’ve all made in such a short time. I especially am thankful for how this year ended. I literally couldn’t be happier that I am in a place where I feel myself again, surrounded only by those who make me feel my best.

We’re all moving on to a new chapter of our lives, one where we no longer get to live together and share experiences with one another each day. However, I’m fully confident in the fact that we all have such a desire to remain in each other’s lives. I truly believe that this next chapter will be our best one yet. I’m so proud of my friends and their accomplishments. We’re all on our way to doing big, big things.

I wish the entire class of 2014 the best of luck!! We did it!
