Play Nice

Image
I so can't wait for next weekend, my best friend is about to head down the isle and we're celebrating by having her bachlorette party in Big Bear, an intimate setting with just the girls. A weekend of cozying up in a beautiful cabin, drinking, being with the girls, a little bit of jacuzzi time and creating important memories with the bride-to-be. How do you celebrate with your girlfriends, is it big, lavish and going out on the town or is it more of an intimate gathering?

Work Hard...

Image
Lately my school works seems to be unending with the loads my professors have been assigning in reading, papers and projects and I really can't wait for a break, which is coming up in just a few short weeks. I try to keep the mentality work hard and good rewards will come. Until then I'm trying my hardest to remain cool, stay in good spirits and get through the insanity of this semester. How do you get through stressful periods of school, work or life in general?!

The Buzzing of Bees

Image
Alright, I'm ready for spring to arrive whose with me on this?! It's been a long, intense and one out of control winter for everyone!!! I know I really have no room to talk about it being cold even though I remember quite well what it's like to be in extremely icy cold weather (even though I miss Indiana dearly) but hey Spring could you hurry up already. I'm longing to wake up and hear birds chirping as I make my way outside with my breakfast in hand and enjoy the simple pleasure of an early spring morning like the buzzing of bees, dipping my toes in the shallow end of the pool where the water is still, picking fresh flowers and soaking up the sun.  What are you most looking forward to this spring?!

Red Head Beauties

I fell in love with Jessica Chastain in her first film Jolene, then she lit up the screen in The Help and I couldn't get enough of her. I have yet to see her in her Oscar nominated roll in Zero Dark Thirty but I know I'll love it. What do you think of Miss Chastain and her gorgeous red locks?!

Weekend Wrap Up

Image
Most of my weekend was time spent alone, whether it was roaming around town, eating lunch (yes by myself), getting lost in a book or just enjoying the quietness of doing nothing and being completely by myself. Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm crazy introverted.
For the longest time I was concerned that I'd never have a life, being around people can be exhausting, I need to be able to recharge after a day of talking to people and putting on my work face. Let me clarify I have a great and close knit group of friends and I am indeed not single, I couldn't ask for a more perfect and healthy relationship!  But at the same time I couldn't help but think that being introverted was a bad thing. I once read an article in a psychology class that if you can't spend quality time with yourself, examining your life and who are as a person then maybe you should consider stepping back a bit from your social life and give yourself a little more attention. How can you be your truest an…

Friday Movies

I can seriously read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (and the other Oz stories by L. Frank Baum) and the Wicked Series over and over. Something about this story is so mesmerizing, I'll admit I've seen Wicked twice and in fact performed in the play production of it! All I can say is I cannot wait to see the newest, Oz the Great and Powerful with James Franco!!!! What are you watching this weekend!

Well loves how has your week been?! It's been kind of a long one hasn't it?! I've gotten through my first week of big assignments and papers and I can't wait to relax a bit from homework for the weekend.  For the first time in weeks I don't have any plans for the weekend except for being curious about a Jazz and Blues Music Festival and possibly seeing a local band perform tonight and getting pumped for my bestie's bacherlorette party coming up! Other than that I'll be lounging around and trying to keep warm and so wanting to dive between all these comfy looking pillows. Have a wonderful weekend ya'll!

31 Bits

My usual beach trips consist of driving to Laguna Beach and spending half the day at the basking in the sun and the rest of the time roaming the quaint little beach town. I've been at least a dozen times, however every time I go I find somewhere new that I can't help but fall in love with. Of course I've come across some pretty cool art galleries, bathing suit and sandal shops and hanging out at the cutest little ice cream shop directly across from the beach. Last summer while walking the streets and admiring the pinkish orange sunset, I found this shop that had Lauren Bush Lauren's FEED products. While perusing the store I came across 31 Bits Jewelry and I couldn't help but buy a few of their bracelets. Now I'm eyeing their neck candy and I'm simply loving these big and chunky necklaces, what do you think?!

Around Here

As far as this blog goes I have never really shared much of my personal life except for the Weekend Wrap Up, which seems to be one of the more popular postings here. I've thought about incorporating more of my real life in photos of me, my surroundings, the clothes I love, the things that inspire me and so on... so I thought what better way to introduce real life photos than of my home. Excuse me for the bright pink walls, I can't control my obsession for pops of color!
 P.S. I'm completely obsessed with this gold mask I picked up in New Orleans two years ago, I keep it on my bookshelf to remind me of the great birthday I had with friends in college. What personal treasures do you display through your home?!

Home Bodies

Image
As much as I love to get out, travel and explore the local community I'm also completely comfortable being a  home body and lounging around the house and enjoy doing things like making piles that need to go to Goodwill, painting my nails and catching up on my latest magazine subscriptions and making to-do lists for myself. As a student in college, I looked forward to the weekend after big tests because that meant waking up early and heading to the local farmers market and perusing the booths for flowers, finding and trying new tasty treats and spending the rest of the day cleaning, organizing, doing laundry and catching up on guilty pleasure reality t.v. shows- I was really into Keeping Up with the Kardashians in college. I recently just got a new cookbook on healthy eating/cooking and I'm really wanting to try out some new recipes as well as working on my photography skills. When you have free time what do you like to do?

To Wear or Not To Wear

Image
What do you think of skirts, do you rock them with confidence or do you stray away from them like me?! I have always had a love hate relationship with skirts, I think they're beautiful but they look funny on me and cut me off and as a shorty that isn't exactly flattering!! But I'm willing to try again with a few styles in mind (pencil, tulle, leather...), what do you think of this gorgeous tulle skirt, gorgeous right?!

Lately I've been gravitating towards simple, solid and fresh looking outfits and Emerson Fry is always amazing at making Plain Jane look so sophisticated and chic. This is a preview of Emerson Fry Spring Collection and I can't wait to sport some of these blouses and dresses! What are you looking forward to this spring season?!

How has everyone's week been, I don't know about you but's it's a been one long week over here!!! I'm still getting used to the extensive amount of reading for classes and ending the week finishing up essays as we speak. I'm looking forward to spending part of my day not thinking about classes and enjoying time off with my man. Saturday is completely reserved to my best friend whose getting ready to head down the isle in just a few short months while Sunday hopefully I'll be able to bum around for bit and enjoy some cozy time, doesn't this room look dreamy and completely divine!!!
