Friday's Favorites

I know, I know. I suck. I'm SO sorry I haven't been posting at all this past week, but I promise this is going to change! I'm finally getting organized and I updated my calendar, so I have everything scheduled out that I want to accomplish on the blog. Hopefully I stick to my schedule! Here's what I've found for today to share with you all :)

1) How cute are these polka dot jeans? I didn't even know you could do that! I so want a pair to wear in the cool autumn weather I'm looking forward to :)

2) I LOVE these sunglasses so much! Not only is the shape perfect, but the little flowers on the edges are just too cute! 

3) I have been seriously craving sweets lately, and I couldn't help but squeal when I found these adorable owl cookies. I love the colors and they look so darn cute! It would be hard to eat them, but we all know I would....

4) This Snow White laptop sticker is just too cute! I definitely need to find one of these to personalize my own Macbook!

5) I love animal jewelry, so I fell in love with this elephant bracelet when I saw it. The colors are so perfect and the little elephant is just too cute!

6) How cool is this sunflower cupcake? Oreos always make everything better, so putting them on top of a cupcake is genius! Add in the little yellow icing pedals and you get an adorable sunflower cupcake that's bound to brighten any day :)

7) This octopus earring is kinda creepy but super cool at the same time! I love nautical animals, so having an octopus look like it's crawling up my ear would be so cool! 

8) Just look at these cheetah print Vans! Are they not perfect? I'm definitely going to need to find myself a pair to add to my shoe collection! 

9) This candy heart keyboard cover is SO COOL! I love having a keyboard cover (mine's purple at the moment), but I had no idea they made one in the shape of candy hearts! I seriously have to find where this one is from so I can get one for myself! 

10) Any Up! reference makes me so happy, so when I saw these cupcake Up! balloons I couldn't help but smile. Aren't they just super sweet? The colors are so pretty and I just love the whole look of it. This would be perfect to make for a friend's birthday or a movie night! 

And that's what's made me smile this week :) I swear I'm going to be more active in the following weeks! I'll update you on more of my adventures in the kitchen, school, and life as a college student! Make sure you stop by later this week for more fun posts! In the meantime, hope you guys all have a happy Friday and fantastic weekend :)

Instagram Weekend

1) One of the first things I did when I got back to school was check out the good old library again! I got a couple of classics I've been wanting to read for a while. Hopefully I can finally get to them!

2) The view out the window of my dorm :) I love it here in my new room!

3) Knotty Knitters poster! We had a ton of people sign up at our club fair, so I'm thinking it's going to be an awesome year for us knotty knitters! Spreading the knitting love <3

4) Being back at school means sooooooo much homework. There's always something that needs to be done! Hopefully I can get used to the workload and get back into the groove of blogging more often!

And that's what's been going on in my little corner of the world! Hope you guys had a fantastic weekend! I know tomorrow's Monday, but it's just another chance to start off a week right :)

Friday's Favorites

It's Friday! My first week of classes was awesome, but I'm ready for the weekend! Lots of club things going on, so I'm excited to finally get back into full swing of being back at school! Here's what's caught my eye this week :)

1) They're Eiffel Tower scissors! How cute are they? I would love to add a pair of these to my knitting bag! 

2) This light switch cover is just too cute. The quote is absolutely perfect and it's from Harry Potter! I need to get one of these! 

3) This Disney cake is so amazing. I love how each layer is a different disney movie! I couldn't imagine how long this took, but the end result is definitely worth it! I mean, look how amazing it looks! 

4) Yes!! This movie is going to be so amazing and I can't wait for it to come out! I read the book and completely love it, so I know the movie is going to be just as good!

5) Mmmmmm these oreo brownies look to die for. I'm drooling just looking at them! 

6) A yarn bombed telephone booth! Isn't that so cool? I want to yarn bomb something so bad, so maybe I'll be able to plan something for this year :) 

7) I love lace so much this year, so these shoes are definitely something I would love to find in my wardrobe sometime soon! 

8) I squealed out loud when I saw this Chip tea cup! He is so so adorable and I didn't even think of owning an actual tea cup of him! I'm going to have to find one of these ASAP! 

9) I LOVE fun animal rings, so this kitty ring definitely has to find it's way into my collection sometime soon! 

10) Owls are kind of an obsession of mine, so when I saw these owl friendship necklaces I got super excited! I really want to find one and give it to my sister so that she knows I'm always there for her, even though we're four hours apart now :)

Wow, this is seriously an awesome Friday! I can't believe the cute and fun things I found this week! I hope you guys have an awesome weekend and I'll talk to you later :)

Back to School!

So I'm not sure if you guys have noticed, but I've been lagging on the blog. Like a lot. And I'm super super sorry about that. I know that there are a lot of you who don't even read this, but I love blogging, so it's been really sad that I haven't had time to write. But I have a really good excuse for the past couple of days....I moved into college!!! It's my second year here, so I'm rooming with one of my really good friends and our room is so awesome!

I had so much stuff that I packed to bring that it was a super tight fit in the car. But thankfully it all fit! I had it loaded and ready to head back to Oxford early yesterday morning. I love my family so much, so it was so sad when my room was all packed away and they were ready to say goodbye. The past three months were such a nice break that I completely forgot what it was like to live without them. I wish I wasn't so far away, but I've made such a great home in Oxford that I couldn't imagine my life without it either! Hopefully I can still see my family enough over breaks so that I don't miss them too badly! 

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! I was worried that it would be super small and we wouldn't have any room at all, but we made it our own and it's so adorable! I have my friends and family all over my walls and desk, so I won't get too home sick. It's the perfect amount of space for us and I couldn't be happier! Now, though, I hope I have a lot more free time to blog and get inspiration for new posts! So make sure you check back for a new and improved me :)

Craft Corner: Magazine Magnets

Since I'm leaving for school soon, I had to finish up all of the projects that I've had lying around all summer! And one of those was my magnets that use magazine pictures!

-clear stones
-magnet strip with a peel-off sticky side
-glue stick
-magazine pages (A Delia's catalogue is absolutely perfect for this)

What I did was cut out the magazines so that they would fit on the back of the stones. Then, I glued the picture to the back of the stone, let that dry, then stuck a little piece of magnet to the back! It's so easy and simple, yet it looks so good now! They'll go perfect with my cookie sheet magnet boards! I found super cute pictures, like some of owls, Star Wars, Mickey Mouse, and even Harry Potter logos! I'm so happy how these turned out and can't wait to put them up in my dorm room! Who knew something so easy could turn out so awesome?

Instagram Weekend


1) My puppy is so adorable! She's been hanging around my room more lately and it makes me so sad that I'm going to be leaving her soon :(

2) I got an adorable new case for my iPhone! It's a pink turtle! Haha, I'm completely obsessed with it now and it was only $3 on Amazon!

3) I got new shoes too! I love the colors and pattern of them so much! They were definitely a great find :)

4) I've been thinking a lot about studying abroad for an entire semester in Luxembourg during my Junior year. We'll see if it actually happens!

5) I finally finished my knitted pillow case! Woo hoo! It only took a month ;)

6) And the packing for college begins! The hardest part is deciding what clothes and shoes I can bring to school! Our room is really tiny, so we'll see how much I can fit!

Kitchen Krazy: Ninjabread Men

So my birthday was a little over a week ago and part of my present from my best friend was these awesome Ninja cookie cutters. She seriously knows me so well because I am obsessed with these guys now! Who knew you could cut cookies as Ninjas?? Well as soon as I got them, I knew I had to make them! I just used sugar cookie mix from a box (I know, I know, but it was so much easier!) and whipped some up! 

I normally don't use cookie cutters, so I wasn't sure how thick to cut them...but it all worked out! Haha, they're just so adorable!!! They're my chubby ninjas :)

And they were so delicious! I'm already planning on making them again this week and maybe making some to take back to school with me on Saturday! I think they'll be a big hit on move in day and what better way to bond than with Ninjamen sugar cookies?? Have any of you found any fun cookie cutters? I'm definitely keeping my eye out for more! I never knew they could be so much fun :)

It's Friday!!! And you know what?? Yesterday was my last day of work for the summer! And now I only have a week left until I move into my dorm! Ahhh this summer went by so fast and it's so sad, yet exciting because I'm going back to school! Anyways, here is what's caught my eye in the last days of summer! 

1) These Aristocrat shirts are so adorable! I need one in my wardrobe now!

2) Moustache nails! How awesome are these?? I really need to try them out soon! 

3) I love owls so much, so I think this suitcase is so cute! It looks like they used duct tape to make the design, which is so smart! And it looks adorable :)

4) R2D2 toms! I find more and more toms that are so perfect for me that I really need to get myself a pair soon!

5) These animal nails are just too cute for words! Haha, I would pick a favorite one but I love each animal so much!! 

6) Look at these Harry Potter shoes! Are they awesome or what??

7) How perfect are these Disney aprons? As much baking as I've been doing, I would absolutely love to have one of these! Maybe I'll figure out how to make my own :)

8) This whale canvas is so cute! I love how they used different colors going up! It's so perfect for the summer! 

9) More Superhero sweatshirts! I really need to get one because not only are they just plain awesome, they look super comfy too! 

10) I want this Little Mermaid shirt so bad! I wonder if this is in the Disney store, because if it is I really need to go there! I would probably end up buying the entire store :)

And that's everything I couldn't get out of my head this summer! Hope you all enjoyed it and have a fantastic Friday :)
