Sweet On Sunday #27

1. I just love the color and detail of this Perk Me Up Bag

2. One look at this Transcendent Soiree Dress and I was in love. I can't get over the rose laced fabric on top!

3. This Road Trippin Sweater looks SO comfortable! Definitely a good sweater to rake a road trip in. 

4. While I would probably never have the courage to actually wear this Mink Pink Powder Room Coat, I still think it's gorgeous. 

5. These Meet A Cheetah Slip Ons are calling my name! Not only are they cheetah print, but they look so comfortable too!

Boot-i-liscious Wishlist

When fall comes around, one thing always comes to mind: Boots. I own three pairs of boots and a pair of rain boots and that's still not enough for me. I have to stop myself from drooling any time I see a cute pair of boots online…and from grabbing my credit card to impulsively buy every pair I see. There are so many cute pairs out there and I just want them all! 

I typically find myself more drawn to a light brown shade of boot as opposed to black or dark brown. I think that's because I own one black and two darker brown pairs of boots and am dying for something completely new to add to my wardrobe. Lately, dark green has been catching my eye as well. A nice forest color is so pretty and absolutely perfect for the fall season. Ah, there are just so many colors and designs available! And I want them all!

10 Things Making Me Happy

What is up with this gloomy weather? It was rainy yesterday and today and is supposed to rain for the next two days. What happened to the crisp fall weather that had finally started to show up? I don't need rain! On my way home from class today, it was absolutely pouring and my backpack got soaked…but nothing inside was damaged, thank goodness. I've been holed up in my room ever since and thankfully the rain has stopped in time for me to go to my weekly knitting meeting. Hopefully it isn't too bad the next couple of days! Here's what's been keeping me happy throughout this dismal rainy weather...

1. Turning in huge assignments I had been working on for weeks. Today, I had a 20 pages recommendation report and an English midterm due and I had been working on those assignments for over two weeks. It feels so good to have them turned in and finally off my chest.

2. Wearing new clothes. I wore my new Mickey Mouse baseball tee on Monday and it made the gloomy day just a little bit brighter.

3. Painting my nails. I love changing up my nail color and when my dark purple started to chip literally the day after I painted them, I decided to take it off and paint them "Fuchsia Power" pink. They're so fun!

4. Having classes cancelled. Tomorrow, I normally have two classes but somehow they both got canceled, so now the only thing I have school-wise is my weekly movie viewing at 6pm. Even then, we're watching Singin' in the Rain, which is a fantastic movie, so it's definitely going to be a good day!

5. Planning a weekend at home. I head home on thursday and I've been planning out the three days I'll have with my family. We've already planned to go to Olive Garden for lunch, see Gone Girl, and go out to breakfast with my brother and his fiancé. I can't wait!

6. Meeting Emily Giffin at Books by the Banks in Cincinnati this weekend. I completely obsessed over her when I was talking to her and she just laughed and called me sweet. Haha, but she was so sweet herself and it was amazing getting to meet her, along with some of my favorite YA authors.

7. Finding delicious recipes I want to try. I found these Coffee Cake Muffins on Pinterest and can't wait to try them out.

8. Receiving pictures of my book mail from my mom. I have all of my books that publishers send me sent home since I don't trust my mail in a college town. My mom opens them all for me and sends me pictures in case there's anything time sensitive I'm sent. This past Friday, 8 books came for me in one day and I loved seeing all of the pretty covers that my mom texted me.

9. Looking at bookish Instagram photos. I've started following more and more Instagram accounts dedicated to photographing books and they're just so pretty!

10. Visiting a massive thrift store for the first time. I've heard about the thrift store near my college town ever since I started school, but I've never actually made the 30 minute trip there to check it out. I finally drove there last weekend and it was amazing. Seriously, I could have stayed there for hours and the prices were unbelievable! I already can't wait to go back!

Sweet on Sunday #26

1. This copy of Little Women is beyond gorgeous! It would look beautiful on my shelf…

2. I love this Photo Booth Strips Frame that the awesome gals over at A Beautiful Mess made. I'd love to make one of these full of photos of me and my sister!

3. This Titles With a Twist shirt is so cool. I'm so tempted to buy one!
4. Since I'm getting the iPhone 6 soon, I've been looking for phone cases and I absolutely love this Geometric Wood Pattern Case from Etsy!

5. I am totally a breakfast person, but only when I get to have a heaping bowl of super sugary, colorful cereal. This Froot Loop Sweatshirt is just too perfect for me!

Weekend Plans [10/10-10/12]

Happy weekend, everyone! I don't know about you, but I have some big plans to catch up on a lot of things on my to-do list this weekend. There just seems to be no time to relax during the week with all of my classes, homework, and extracurricular meetings. I could definitely use some quiet time to make a dent in my long to-do list...

Attend Books by the Banks
I am beyond excited to attend Books by the Banks this year, which is a huge event where tons of authors of many genres come to meet readers and promote their books. This year, the big author coming is Emily Giffin, author of Something Borrowed. I am in love with her writing and could not be more thrilled for the chance to meet her. Some of my other favorite YA authors will be at the convention too, so it's definitely going to be an exciting day.

Read more books
I have so many books I have to read for review, so I'm definitely taking any down time I have to catch up on that looming stack that seems to grow bigger and bigger every day…

Crochet baby blankets
My cousin is expecting twins (yay!) and her baby shower is the second weekend of November. I want to maker her a baby blanket for each baby, so I definitely have to get working on that project if I hope to have it done in time for the shower.

Say goodbye to my adorable iPhone 4 cases
By this time next week I should have the new iPhone 6 in my hands, which means all of my adorable iPhone 4 cases will be of no use to me anymore. While I'm excited to have my first upgrade in four years, I am so sad because I have collected some super cute phone cases, so I'm trying to use them all before I have to say goodbye!

Drink hot chocolate
Since the weather feels deliciously like fall, there's no better way to stay warm than by drinking some hot chocolate with peppermint creamer! Yummmm.

Binge watch The Vampire Diaries 
I own seasons one and two of The Vampire Diaries and haven't watched that show in forever. I saw a lot of hype online about season six starting up on tv, so I decided to start the series over and try to catch up to the current season. I'm on the last disc of season one and hope to make some leeway into season two before the weekend is over!

What I Wore: Twirling in Tights

Dress- Forever21 | Sweater- Ann Taylor Loft | Tights- Target | Boots- Delia's | Scarf-Handmade

This is the first outfit of the season where I got to wear tights and I was so excited. Over the past year, my tights collection has exploded and I have them in every color you can imagine. When this dress finally came in the mail from Forever 21 after I ordered from their website, yet again, a couple of weeks ago, I knew that my light pink tights would go perfectly. And look how pretty they look together! I love it :)

You know what I also love? Fall weather. Wearing this sweater over my dress with a scarf was absolutely perfect for how the weather turned out to be, which was in the high 50s and low 60s. While it ended up being a bit more windy than I had anticipated, I had my trusty tights on to protect my legs from any possible flashings that a gust of wind could have caused. Yet another reason to love tights! I can't wait to pull out even more of my collection as the weather gets colder. Here's to a great season ahead full of bright tights, snuggly sweaters, and even more snuggly scarves.

Top 10 Halloween Movies

I know that Halloween isn't for another three weeks, but seeing as Halloween candy and decorations have been in stores for the past two  months, I thought it was acceptable to share my favorite movies to watch during October. I'm definitely not a scary movie kind of girl, so most of my Halloween movies are the adorable Disney movies that I watched over and over again as a kid. They made Halloween so fun and aside from getting tons of candy from Halloween, the movies were one of my favorite parts of the holiday.

1. Hocus Pocus
I'm pretty sure this is everyone's go-to Halloween movie. I mean, who doesn't love this movie!? The Sanderson sisters are fantastic and I love the whole storyline. The part where they sing "I Put a Spell On You"? Definitely my favorite scene.

2. Halloweentown
This is another one of my go-to Halloween movies, especially because they play it on Disney pretty much 24/7 during October. I pretty much grew up on the Halloweentown series, but the first one will always be my favorite. And what's up with them completely replacing the actress for Marnie in the fourth movie? That was so not okay.

3. Harry Potter and the Scorcerer's Stone
Troll! In the dungeon! Haha, the Halloween part of this movie is one of the coolest Halloween scenes ever. The candles all over the ceiling and the troll coming in from the dungeon and almost killing Hermione in the girl's bathroom? Classic.

4. Mom's Got a Date With a Vampire
Oh my gosh, my sister and I loved this movie when we were younger. I don't know why, but it was just such a cool idea that the kids had to save their mom from dating a vampire and that the dad from Lizzie McGuire ends up being the vampire hunter that saves the day in the end. You can't get more Disney than that.

5. The Little Vampire
I almost completely forgot about this movie until I came across a list of kid friendly Halloween movies. This was probably one of the first vampire movies I ever saw and it is just too adorable for words. The little boy and his vampire friend are so cute and I love how they get along super well even though it's not normal for humans and vampires to be friends.

6. The Goonies
While this isn't exactly a movie about Halloween, it's still a fantastic scary story that has a little bit of adventure thrown into the mix. There are definitely moments that freaked me out as a kid, but it's easily one of my favorite movies now.

7. The Birds
I watched this one for the first time a couple of years ago and it is so scary. While a movie about birds may seem harmless, there's absolutely no reason why these birds attack this town. No reason at all. I think that's the scariest part of this entire movie.

8. The Silence of the Lambs
This one is probably one of the most psychologically scary movies I've ever seen. Seriously, a guy kills women and then makes a suit out of their skin so that he can cross-dress? That's so disturbing! And Jodie Foster has to try to find this guy by consulting with Hannibal Lector, one of the most infamous serial killers of all time? Freaky.

9. Psycho
Of course, I have to throw another Hitchcock film into the mix, and this one is the most notorious film for have a psychotic main character, hens the title. As one of the most classic scary movies in film history, I had to include it!

10. Casper Meets Wendy
This is another movie that I grew up on and my sister and I loved it so, so much. It was just so much fun and we loved how Hilary Duff was a witch! Who wouldn't want to be her, an awesome witch with a ghost as friendly as Casper as a best friend?
