Cheetahlicious Wishlist

Okay, so I just realized that every single one of these products is considered Leopard print, but I'm going to call them cheetah because "cheetalicious" sounds so much better that "leopardlicious." And who can really tell the different anyways, right? Lately, though, I have been obsessed with animal print and didn't really realize how much of it I had until I went shopping last weekend. I bought a pair of silver animal print Keds and silver animal print pj pants. Not to mention any time I get free underwear coupons from Victoria's Secret, I always end up getting a cheetah print pair. Coincidence? No, I'm just obsessed with animal print! 

You know what else I'm obsessed with? Forever 21. And every single item listed above is from Forever 21. Seriously, it's like a match made in heaven! Not to mention that all of these are affordable and oh so tempting for me to just give in and buy. Especially the cross body bag. It's only $22! No wonder I always end up buying things from Forever 21 whenever they're having a huge sale. Their prices are just impossible to beat with such cute merchandise. Do you guys have any prints that you absolutely love and can't help but buy?

What I Wore: It's Getting Cold!!

Dress- Forever21 | Denim shirt- Kohl's | Tights- Target | Shoes- Target | Watch- Macy's

I was so excited to wear this outfit today. I ordered this dress on Columbus Day for only $5 with free shipping. Seriously, I am way too addicted to online shopping, but how can I resist with such amazing sales? And it processed that day and came exactly 5 days later, which never happens. Forever 21 seriously rocks my socks. But back to the outfit. I didn't realize that it was going to be in the high 40s and low 50s today. With wind. Needless to say, I was a bit chilly! On my way to class, I wore a coat over my dress, but I hate wearing coats over dresses because I feel like it ruins the whole effect and I just look ridiculous with the skirt hanging out and a big coat covering whatever sweater/shirt I have over the dress. Once I'm inside, though, I love my outfit! No bulky coat to ruin my meticulously thought out clothing. 

Aside from not being appropriate dress weather, though, I really have been loving October. I can't believe there's only a little over a week left! Did you know that there's 64 days until Christmas? I just checked. I already want to start Christmas shopping, but I'm going to hold off until November. Hey, at least I have some restraint! I have, though, already started making my Christmas list for Santa. It's never too early to plan out what I hope good old St. Nick will bring for me this year ;)

10 Things Making Me Happy

How is it already October 20th? That means that it's already halfway through October and November is that much closer. The weather is getting colder and my classes are already halfway over! It seems like every weekend just flies by and I'm back in classes…but here's what made me happy this past weekend!

1. Spending the weekend at home. I spent Friday shopping with my sister and mom. Then, I spent all day with my mom, sister, and dad seeing Gone Girl and then having Olive Garden's never ending pasta bowl for lunch. It was a great weekend!

2. Getting new running shoes. I went to an actual running store and spent an hour with an employee analyzing my feet. I tried on 5 pairs of shoes and ran in all of them until I picked out the perfect pair. They're a gorgeous blue color and feel so good! Now, I'm always super excited every time I get to run in my new shoes.

3. Signing up for a 5k. I'm running the Run Like Hell 5k this Friday where everyone wears costumes to run in. I'm dressing up as an 80s fitness girl (think Olivia Newton-Jon in Let's Get Physical). I can't wait to run the race!

4. Catching up on all of my shows. It seems like all of the new shows I watch are all on Thursday nights, which is so annoying because that means I have them all to watch at once. When I was home, my sister and I were able to watch the newest episodes of How to Get Away with Murder, Stalker, and A to Z together and I'm all caught up!

5. Seeing the preview for Fifty Shades of Grey during Gone Girl. Oh, that movie. I don't know if I'll like it or not but the preview was definitely entertaining and I'm totally seeing the movie when it's released on Valentine's Day.

6. Finding movies on sale for only $2. At Kroger, I got What to Expect When You're Expecting for only $2, along with a Girl's Rule Movie Marathon collection of 5 movies that include The Perfect Man and Josie and the Pussycats. For only $2. Yay for more movies!

7. Cuddling with my puppy. Whenever I go home, I have to spend a good amount of time smothering Rosie in kisses and hugs. I know she's so tired of my by the end of the weekend, but I have to get my puppy time in before I leave her again!

8. Downloading Nick Jonas's new song. I still listen to Jonas Brothers every time I run (which is everyday), and I was shocked to see that Nick Jonas not only had a new song, but that it was in the top 10 on iTunes. I listened to it and thought it was awesome, so I bought it and can't get it out of my head.

9. TAYLOR SWIFT'S NEW ALBUM COMES OUT IN SEVEN DAYS. I used to really not like Taylor Swift because she claimed to be country, but won all of the awards for pretty much every genre. Um, not cool. Now that this new album is officially pop and Shake If Off is one of the best songs ever, I can't wait to see what other songs she's come up with!

10. Ordering the new iPhone 6. I will have the new beautiful iPhone 6 in my hands in exactly 5 days! I already have a pretty blue and pink case that will look adorable on my new phone. I can't wait to finally have a new phone for the first time in four years!

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!
