Secret Santas and Slytherin Scarves

The Christmas season is among us and I am absolutely loving it! I have been Christmas shopping like crazy and I've been obsessed with finding the perfect gifts for everyone in my life. Oh, and for the two secret santas I'm a part of! Secret santas are my favorite, so I decided to plan one for my Quidditch team and for the Knotty Knitters club. Tonight is our Christmas Party for Quidditch, so we get to exchange gifts! I'm so beyond excited for it! Here's what I've been up to getting ready for it :)

1) I made a Slytherin Scarf for the person who's name I pulled! I'm so excited because it turned out so much better than I had hoped! Now I want to make one for myself too! Haha, that pretty much always happens when I knit something for someone else...

2) I also got a Harry Potter trivia game for only $2 at Goodwill as part of the gift as well! It made me so happy when I found it because it's the absolute perfect thing to give a person who plays Quidditch. And I was still able to stay under the $10 limit! 

3) Love, Actually is by far one of the best Christmas movies ever and I'm bringing it to the party tonight in hopes that everyone will want to watch it! It's one that not a lot of people have seen, so I can't wait to see what they think about it!

4) I painted my nails green and red sparkles to celebrate the season! I can't stop looking at my nails :)

5) I also made a cake! Since I don't have eggs or oil, I actually used Diet Sprite and it worked out perfectly! Then, I used the Dunken Hines Strawberry flavor in the icing to make a strawberry iced vanilla cake! The icing tastes SO yummy and I'm pretty sure I ate at least half of it before it went on the cake. Haha, that tends to happen when I bake! I hope they all like my cake too! 

And that's how I get ready for a Quidditch Christmas party! It's my first Christmas party of the year and I'm beyond excited to start of the season right. Hopefully it turns out as fantastic as I think it's going to! Happy Christmas :)

Friday's Favorites

IT'S FRIDAY!!!! This week has been so long because I'm back at school after Thanksgiving break with only two weeks left of classes. I'm so close to being done with this semester, but that means exams, papers, and endless amounts of homework. I can't until it's all done! Only a week and a half until I can go home for over a month! I'm so excited! To hold me over until then, I've been getting a lot of Christmas shopping done online because buying the perfect gift for people is my favorite part of this season! But enough about me. Here's what I've been eyeing this past week! 

1) How perfect is this cookie monster mug? I would LOVE to have this! It's perfect for milk and cookies by the fire :)

2) Tehe, this image is so perfect for the season. I love my family to death, but things do get crazy around the holidays! 

3) It's a kitty watch!!! How adorable is that?? 

4) Mmmm I could totally go for some chocolate banana ice cream right now! 

5) I seriously almost died when I saw this Christmas mustache mug. I guess it's from Target, but I couldn't find it anywhere on their website! I have to find a way to get to Target ASAP so I can get this mug!!

6) These hats look so warm and cozy for the winter season! I wonder if I can find a pattern to make some fluffy hats like these...

7) Not only do these socks look insanely comfortable but the pattern is so much fun!! I love anything colorful and these socks definitely qualify :)

8) Ahhhhhh a mustache mug cozy!!!!! I have to see if I can make one of these because it's beyond adorable. 

9) This image is so true! I would take a cinnamon roll any day of the week. Who could give up such yummy food??? 

10) I cannot get over how cute this iPhone case is. I'm pretty sure it's the scene from Tangled, but it also kind of looks like Hogwarts...but whatever it is it's adorable and I love it!

The Confidence Project #2- Knit in a public place on campus

I've knitted in public before, but never alone because I've always been scared of getting looks from people. Yeah, I know I shouldn't care what people think of me, but if I'm just sitting there knitting in the middle of campus, it's a bit weird. I never had a problem meeting in a public place for knitting club because there were a bunch of us and it was fun, not awkward. Knitting by myself is a whole other story. 

I decided to make this a goal for my Confidence Project because I knew that was the only way I'd have the guts to do it. And you know what? I did it! I sat down in the basement of King Library (right by the King Cafe, which is probably the busiest place on campus), grabbed a table, and got set up. I brought along the supplies for a headband one of my friends wanted me to knit her as well as my computer to watch some Downton Abbey! 

I expected to have a lot more anxiety than I actually did when I was knitting. As soon as I started my project, I kind of forgot about everyone and got immersed in the episode of Downton Abbey that I was watching. I'm still on the first season, but that show is so awesome! I think that helped a lot with making me comfortable just sitting amongst studying college students, knitting with my baby pink yarn. I would have taken more pictures of me actually knitting, but there were people sitting right behind me, so I felt like I would have looked weird taking pictures of myself...haha maybe that should be my next challenge! But seriously, this was actually more fun than I thought and I'm so happy I got to do it! I only stayed for about 20 minutes because silly me forgot a cable needle, so I could only go so far on the project I was knitting. Maybe there will be another chance for me to knit some more in public! But I think I'll drag along a knitting buddy because knitting is much more fun when you have other people there to enjoy it with :)

That's another confidence task down! I wonder which one I should choose next...

Top 10 Christmas Movies

Christmas is seriously my favorite time of the year. Between the presents, food, and family, there's really nowhere to go wrong! Not to mention it's winter break then, which means NO CLASSES OR HOMEWORK! Which I'm really looking forward to as all this work is piling up at the end of the semester. But you want to know the best part of Christmas? The movies of course! So I decided to put together a list of my top 10 Christmas movies that I make sure to watch (multiple times) throughout the holiday season :)

1. Die Hard This movie is by far the best Christmas movie ever. It takes place on Christmas day and Bruce Willis is a serious beast. We watch this movie every year we put up the tree and it never gets old. 

2. Love, Actually This is definitely a close second to the best Christmas movies ever. I absolutely love every single storyline in this movie and the fact that it's British doesn't hurt either ;) 

3. White Christmas This is a Christmas classic that is a must to watch every year! Me and my sister love to belt out the "Sisters" song every time it plays :)

4. Elf You'd think I'd be tired of this movie by now based on how many times I've seen it (which is a lot) but it never gets old! This one is by far the funniest Christmas movie and will be forever quotable you cotton-headed ninnymuggins! Haha, just kidding...

5. Jingle All the Way This is my mom's favorite Christmas movie, so I've grown up with it. This one is so cute and will forever have a special place in my heart :)

6. The Holiday This is another one of my mom's favorites and I can definitely see why! Not only does it have Jude Law (can you say yummm??) but how they switch places is so adorable! 

7. Holiday in Handcuffs I know this is a cheesy ABC Family movie, but it's SO GOOD! I love how crazy she is and how Mario Lopez is just kidnapped for Christmas. Seriously it's such a good movie! 

8. While You Were Sleeping I love old romances, and Sandra Bullock sure knows how to make them! This one is super cute, especially when she goes over to her "fiancĂ©'s" house for Christmas. 

9. The Grinch I used to hate this movie, but it's grown on me over the years. I love the whole town they live in and it's just a cute reminder of why I love Christmas! 

10. Bridget Jones's Diary While this isn't really a Christmas movie, it does begin and end at Christmas, so it counts. But that's why it's #10 and not higher up on the list. This movie is probably one of my favorite movies ever because I can't get enough of the British charm! And any movie with Colin Firth is a must for me :)

13 Before 2013

Wow, can you believe November is almost over? We only have FOUR days until the best month of the year! But then that means we only have one month until 2012 is officially over. Isn't that crazy? I saw over at Oh Shoot that Vivs made a list of 13 things she wanted to get done before 2013. I thought about how I've wanted 2012 to turn out and what I still haven't accomplished, so I decided to make a list of my own! 

1) Try out art journaling 
2) Read 17 more books to officially reach 130 books in 2012
3) Finish at least 3 yarn projects that I'm currently/want to work on
4) Finish two items from my Confidence Project List
5) Get a passport
6) Run at least four times a week
7) Blog every day of December
8) Read two classics from my 100 Classics List
9) See at least two new movies in theaters
10) Watch at least two Audrey Hepburn movies
11) Finish Season One of Downton Abbey
12) Bake some goodies for Christmas 
13) Find the perfect Christmas Gifts for my family and friends

It's not that impressive of a list, but they're all things I would love to happen before New Years rolls around! Wish me luck :)

Chef Santa and the Christmas Countdown

While I was home, I was able to decorate the house in Christmas decorations! Every Black Friday, me and my sister wake up super early and put up the decorations while my mom hits the shops early. Then, when she comes home, we go out with her around 10 am so we can hit the sales that end before noon, but aren't with all of the crazies. It's a perfect system and I look forward to it every single year! 

Here are a couple of shots of our decorations around the house. We have so many boxes we have to bring up from the basement, but it's so worth it to have a decked out Christmas house! I love our Santa Chef and our Christmas countdown Santa. Every morning in December, my sister, brother, and I always run to the Santa as soon as we wake up so we can move the star for that day. It gets pretty intense, but it's something I look forward to every single morning of December :)

I'm so excited to spend the next month with these decorations. It's sad I'm stuck at school for the next two weeks in my dorm, but once exams are over I can go to my beautiful home and bask in the yards of sparkly garland and Christmas lights! And hopefully when I get home, there'll be some pretty presents under the tree :) Eeeh I absolutely can't wait!!!

Pumpkin Pie and Christmas Decorations

The holiday season has finally arrived and I could not be more excited! I had a wonderful day with my amazing family eating wayyyy too much food. Despite the huge mistake of absolutely stuffing myself with delicious good, it was a pretty awesome day! I got a lot done in the past couple of days...

-Run a 5k I ran the Turkey Trot 5k Thanksgiving morning and it went so well! I finished in 22:54, which completely baffled me. I had no idea I could do it that fast! I got a super cute long sleeve shirt from the race and got a personal pumpkin pie for finishing within the first 260 finishers. After running this race, I felt so amazing! Nothing like knowing you can finish 3.2 miles in only 23 minutes is a really good feeling :)

-Knit some Christmas presents Being a knitter, there's definitely a whole other world of Christmas presents that are possible. This year is the first Christmas I'll have as a knitter, so I'm definitely going to be using my skills to create fun presents for my loved ones! Right now, I'm making a Harry Potter scarf for my Quidditch secret santa. I'm so excited to see how it turns out! 

-Put up Christmas Decorations Every Black Friday my family puts up our Christmas decorations, so I've been enjoying a very bright day today! We put the tree up, all the stockings, and the rest of the random decorations all around the house. Putting up the tree is definitely my favorite; we put Die Hard on the TV and cram as many ornaments on the tree as we can. It's absolutely fantastic and I love our tree so much! I'm so excited to spend the next month with such a pretty tree in the house!

And that's how my holiday week has been so far! Sounds awesome right? Well, it does to me! Running, eating, and decoration. Yeah, that pretty much sums it all up :)

Christmas Sweaters and Art Journaling

So I am FINALLY home for Thanksgiving Break and I couldn't be more excited. Today, I went out and ran a bunch of errands and then saw Looper at the Dollar Theater and I have to say, it was a pretty fantastic day. I got to go to Target, Goodwill, JoAnns, and Barnes and Noble. I haven't been to those stores in SO LONG because I've been stuck at school without no car. Here's a peak at what I picked up throughout the day :)

-Pink Christmas Sweater That's right! I got a super cute Christmas sweater from Goodwill for only $3.29! It's pink with reindeers and snowflakes on it, and I absolutely love it! I can't wait to wear it to Christmas parties this year! 

-Journals First, I found the mustache journal at Target for only $1 and knew I just had to have it. Then, I completely flipped when I saw the Jane Austen notebook at Half Price Books for only $2! I've really wanted to try my hand at art journaling, so I thought these two would be the perfect journals to start with! I made sure to pick up some Sharpie pens to go with them :)

-Harry Potter Yarn My Quidditch team is having a secret santa, and what else do you get a Quidditch player than a Harry Potter present?? I decided to knit a Slytherin scarf for my secret santa and I'm super excited to see their reaction! I really hope they love it! 

And those are some of the goodies I managed to scrounge up today. I feel so happy and giddy about everything I got, which is why I absolutely love shopping! I can't wait to feel this way again on Black Friday!!!! Oh, it's going to be such a fantastic day. I'm putting up the Christmas tree early in the morning, then going out and hitting those sales! It's going to be absolutely fantastic this year! I'm hoping to get my Christmas shopping done, but we'll see! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year :)

In My Backpack

Being a college student, I'll be out of my room sometimes for the entire day; in between going to class, group meetings, study time at the library, club meetings, and other extracurriculars, there sometimes isn't any time to breath! So I always have to be prepared for anything. That's where my handy dandy backpack comes in. This backpack, which I've lovingly decorated with buttons throughout the years, is basically my life. So here's everything I keep stashed away in here that I absolutely cannot go through college without...

1. I can't go anywhere without my notebooks and folders! I always buy fun ones, like Star Wars or The Avengers to make class a little bit more exciting. 

2. Pens upon pens upon pens. I have so many pens and pencils in my backpack and I have no idea why! But as an English Ed major, I have a ton of English classes that require a lot of note-taking. I love being able to choose from an array of pen colors to make my notes look pretty :)

3. My books and textbooks are always a must when it comes to class. If I don't have them, I feel so lost! 

4. My wristlet goes everywhere with me! It has my phone, license, student ID, money, gift cards, and pretty much anything else I need to live. And I absolutely adore the pattern, so I love using it! 

5. I have a slight obsession with lotion and own wayyyy too many bottles, so there's always a bottle or two stuck somewhere in my backpack. 

6. Chapstick is a definite must for me! I hate it when my lips start to get chapped and I'm left for the entire day without some chapstick to soothe them. So random tubes of Baby Lips or Crazy Rumors Chapstick are always in there :)

7. I am definitely addicted to gum too, so I always need a pack to get me through the day! 

8. I am constantly listening to music between classes. My iPod gives me a nice distraction from walking all over campus, especially since my dorm is on the edge of campus and feels forever away! 

9. Lastly, but certainly not least, is a fun book. Whenever I get to class early, which I almost always do because I hate being late, I love to slip in a couple of minutes of nice, quiet reading time. It makes the time pass quickly and allows me to get some time for reading squeezed into my busy days. 

And that's pretty much it! Without any of these, I don't know how I could make it through the school day. It'd definitely be a struggle! Speaking of school, it's back to classes for me today! Thank goodness it's only a two day weak and I can finally go home for Thanksgiving tomorrow! I can't wait for some delicious Turkey and pumpkin pie :) Hope you all have a great week and enjoy time with the family :)

Christmas Lists and London Plans

This weekend has been so relaxing, and that's just what I've been needing! I've finally had time to sit back and work on everything that's been waiting to get done. And I've been able to catch up on some much needed TV. I just finished the second season of Sherlock yesterday and it was mind blowing. Seriously, that is the best show ever! I really hope they're going to make a third season or else I'm going to be so sad! But besides my complete obsession with Sherlock, here's what else has been going on this weekend...

1) Reading my Nook I just got an adorable new Vera Bradley Nook case for 50% off! So now more than ever I've been wanting to use my Nook and I've finally had the time to read a Nook book. It's an adorable contemporary romance called Naturally, Charlie and I can't get enough of it! 

2) Making Christmas Lists Black Friday is coming up, so that means I've got to plan what I'm going to get for Christmas presents this year! Not to mention what I want from Santa this year...Haha, but I absolutely love buying gifts for people, so I've been working hard on making sure I've got the perfect present picked out for everyone I love :)

3) Planning London This summer I'm going to London for six weeks and I cannot stop thinking about it! My sister still had her guide books from when she went to London four years ago, so I stole them last time I was home. I've been going through them and have started planning everything I want to see. I know summer isn't for a while, but it's never too early to start planning! 

4) Paint my nails I'm so bad when it comes to keeping up with my nails; I've still got the chipped shade of red on from two weeks ago! But I'm definitely making time today to change up the color and make my nails look pretty and polished. 

5) Keep working on my afghan I've been making slow and steady progress on my chevron afghan. It seems like it's never ending! But I've finally moved on to the second out of three skeins of each color, so I'm getting there. I can't wait to see the finished project because I am absolutely in love with the pattern. I'm planning on spending some quality time in front of the TV with my yarn and crochet hook in hand. 

And that's what's going on with me this weekend! It doesn't sound too exciting but I absolutely cannot wait for it :)

Friday's Favorites

Oh, I'm so excited it's finally Friday! I only have two school days left until I get to go home for Thanksgiving Break! Yay! This weekend could not have come soon enough. I'm looking forward to seeing all of my family again, eating delicious food, and not having to worry about school! I get excited just talking about it! Hopefully these next few days fly by so that I'll be home before I know it. Well, until then here's what I've found this Friday :)

1) This travel themed room is so adorable! It just makes me want to hop on the next plane and see where it takes me. I would love to have a room like this in my home someday! 

2) Now that the Christmas season is finally moving in, I can get excited about Christmas food! And these chocolate covered candy canes look absolutely delicious! 

3) Speaking of yummy does this Starbucks hot chocolate ice cream look? I have to find some and try it out as soon as I can! 

4) Tehe, Sherlock is probably the best show ever. I can't get enough of it! 

5) So true! I need to find this big books mug because it pretty much describes my life :)

6) This hot air balloon necklace just looks so magical! I would love to add this to my necklace collection!

7) These bow tie nails look so cute! I haven't ever tried doing something that detailed on my nails before, so maybe I'll give this one a try! 

8) Look! It's a rubix cube cake! Can you get more awesome than that???

9) This Dita Von Teese quote could not be more true. You can't please everyone, so don't let them put you down! Just be happy being you :) 

10) Awww I love these adorable embroidered pillows. It looks so simple and I bet it wouldn't be hard to do at all! I'm definitely going to try out embroidering something cute like this myself. I just can't get enough of its cuteness :)

The Confidence Project #1- Wear Bright Tights

That's right! I finally wore a pair of bright tights to class for the first time ever! I've had these tights since the summer, but I've always been a little afraid to wear them. What would people think of me? Would they make me look like a 5-year-old? But they're so cute, so I decided to make wearing them a task for The Confidence Project and I actually did it! 

I wore them on Wednesday, which I spent out of my room from 9 am all the way until 6:30 pm, so tons of people saw me and my bright tights! I actually felt so good while wearing them because they're so bright and fun! Who wouldn't feel happy wearing so much color? I'm so happy I decided to do this task first because it wasn't hard at all! Now, I want to go out and buy tights in all different types of colors because they make the outfit much cuter and then I can wear skirts in the cold weather! Yay!

So overall, my first task in The Confidence Project was definitely a success! I have no idea which task I'm going to attempt next, but hopefully it goes as smoothly as this one! This project has already made me feel more confident in myself and I can't wait to see where else it can take me :)

Pumpkin Pie Wardrobe

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year, and it seems that every time I get ready for the day, I'm looking for an outfit that is inspired by the warmth of Thanksgiving dinner. So I decided to create a wardrobe that, to me, evoked the essence of delicious pumpkin pie and cozy times with the family gathered around a warm fire. 

I'm absolutely in love with the burnt orange and soft browns that remind me so much of this time of year. The Modcloth coat and sweater I picked are so adorably cute that I simply can't get enough of them. The sweater is already adorable, but add on those brown heart elbow patches and you get a sweater that is a must need for this season! And big totes are definitely useful for that Black Friday shopping! You don't know when you'll need to pull out a book when you're waiting for hours in those crazy lines. Ahhh I can't wait! Haha, it doesn't sound fun at all, but Black Friday is a shopaholic's dream, so I am beyond excited for the day to come :)

So basically what I'm getting at is that this time of year is awesome and it's only about to get even more amazing. An adorable pumpkin pie inspired wardrobe, absolutely delicious food, and fun times with the family...what more could you possibly ask for??

William Shakespeare and Duck Soup

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Mine seemed to fly by because it was so busy, but it was so much fun! Being surrounded by such talented athletes and Quidditch enthusiasts was amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better weekend! But now that it's over, it's time to come back down to reality. Here's what I've got planned to do with my time back home at Oxford...

1. Write my Shakespeare paper I have a lovely 10 page Shakespeare paper due this week, so I'll be spending a lot of quality time with my Shakespeare text book! I'm writing about The History of King Lear and how the women who hold power in the play (King Lear's daughters) are inevitable failures due to their feminine qualities. Yeah, it completely demeans women, but that's what makes it so fun to write! I get to see how life back then was like and how Shakespeare brilliantly portrays their ideals in his play. The not so fun part is putting all that in to a 10 page paper, but I guess we'll see how it goes! 

2. Start a knitting project  I've had this adorable turquoise yarn in my yarn stash for a while and I have no idea what to do with it! I really want to start a new cowl project, so I've been roaming around Raverly looking for the perfect pattern. I haven't found it yet, but I'm determined to start something new this week, so hopefully I can find a pattern soon! 

3. Watch Duck Soup I'm not entirely sure what this movie is about, but it's on my list of movies to watch, so I got it from the library! It definitely looks like a very interesting movie, so I'm excited to see how it turns out! 

And that's all I'm going to be up to on this lovely Monday night! That's pretty much the dull life of a knitting college student! Haha, but I wouldn't trade my life for the world. I know writing papers sounds icky, but English is my passion, so I've grown to get used to writing papers in exchange for being able to surround myself with literary geniuses like Shakespeare and Jane Austen! But enough rambling from me. I hope you guys had a great Monday and enjoy the rest of your week :)

Literary Lover's Wish List

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

I am a bookworm and proud of it, so there are so many literary products out there that I would just die to get my hands on. I'm currently reading my first Jane Austen novel (Sense and Sensibility) and I am HOOKED! Seriously, I can't get enough of her writing and I never want to put the book down! I can't believe it's taken me this long to read Jane Austen's writing! I think I've found a new love :)

That being said, I've been drooling over literary inspired accessories from all over the web. Like the Wuthering Heights shirt and The Great Gatsby sweater...I would love to have those in my wardrobe! And how about that adorable plaid backpack? It just screams "library" to me and I want it so bad! I could just imagine walking around campus with it...spending long, lovely nights in the library curled up with an Austen or Bronte novel...And I think the Wuthering Heights locket is just too adorable. Gahhh I just want everything!!! 

Who knew there would be so many accessories for literary lovers? I've discovered a whole new world and some of these things are definitely going on my Christmas list this year! It's so hard to narrow down the long list of literary accessories though! Now that I've discovered Jane Austen, I want everything and anything that has to do with her! But Wuthering Heights is still one of my favorite classics ever, so I love anything Bronte inspired. What's a girl to do??

Jane Austen and Banana Split Chapstick

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! I've got a pretty busy two days ahead of me, but I absolutely can't wait for them to come! Not to mention the weather is supposed to be absolutely fantastic! Here's what I've got going on this beautiful weekend...

1. Midwest Cup That's right! Midwest cup is being held in Mason, OH this year and all of the Quidditch teams from the Midwest region will be there! I'm so excited because Quidditch tournaments are always a blast, full of diehard Harry Potter fans and really talented athletic people. We have to finish in the top ten in order to qualify to go to World Cup in Florida, so wish us luck! 

2. Yummy Romances I'm definitely going to try to spend some quality time with this delicious historical romance in between games! I am absolutely smitten with pirate-like (handsome, rugged captain of a ship who follows no one's orders but his own) characters and that's exactly what the hero of this novel is! All I want to do is read, so I'll have to make sure to set aside some time for that this weekend! 

3. Banana Split Chapstick I was at the market yesterday and I came across these delicious flavors of Crazy Rumors chapstick. They had all kinds from strawberry sherbet to mint chocolate chip. But when I saw the banana split flavor, I just knew I had to have it. It smells so yummy! Now, I really want to try out all of the other delicious sounding flavors as well! I may have found a new obsession :) 

4. Jane Austen I started reading my very first Jane Austen novel a couple of days ago for my Romanticism class and I am in love! Seriously, I cannot put down my copy of Sense and Sensibility even if I wanted to because I cant get enough of the story. That whole time period is so amazing and the characters are so enchanting! I can't believe it took me this long to read Jane Austen because I have definitely been missing out on some fantastic literate. I can't wait to finish this one so that I can dive into her other books! I'd personally love to read about the famous Mr. Darcy and see if he's really as dashing as everyone makes him out to be ;)

And that's pretty much everything going on for me this weekend! It's definitely a busy one, but it'll be full of fun Quidditch times and some pretty fabulous books. Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend as well!

Friday's Favorites

Wow, where did this week go? I feel like just yesterday it was Sunday night and now it's Friday! Hey, I'm not complaining! That means it's the weekend! I'm going to be at the Midwest Cup for Quidditch all weekend, so I can't wait for that. It's going to be a busy, Harry Potter filled two days and I am so ready for it :) But until then, here are some lovely things I've found in the past week!

1) How adorable is this sheep sweater?? I have to find cute, quirky sweaters like this one to add to my wardrobe! 

2) I LOVE iPhone covers, so when I saw these Kitty covers, I about died from their cuteness. And the pastel colors just add to their adorable factor. Can I have one right now? Please??

3) These unicorn earrings are so fantastic! Seriously, it's like their flying right through your ear! That's absolutely magical :)

4) Tehe, this Julia Roberts gif pretty much describes my life. 

5) How fantastic is this pig USB port? Haha, I would absolutely love to have this just sitting on my desk...I would never get any work done because I'd be too busy playing with the adorable piglets!

6) Just look at these pretty rose cupcakes! I wish I were that skilled with icing to make these! They'd be perfect for a tea party :)

7) I've been looking for some adorable new mugs and this Alice In Wonderland mug would be a lovely addition to my collection!

8) This is such a cute way to organize cards/art! I would love to display all of the cards I've received all in a little line on the wall...

9) I love this shade of pink as a hair color! Do you think I could ever pull it off? 

10) I love the look of pretty, old classics lining the shelves of a bookshelf. I hope that my collection of books grows to be as gorgeous as this one!
