Just Journals

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

I am obsessed with notebooks. Seriously. I own way more than I need and always want to buy new ones when I see a cute journal in the store. I've tried to journal regularly, but I only manage to fill up about a notebook a year. That means that I have a ton of empty journals lying around in my room that are waiting to be filled with my words…

Either way, I love finding new, beautiful journals. I especially love any journals that reflects what I love, such as Jane Austen or traveling. Any journal with the Eiffel Tower or a cute bike completely steals my heart. Whimsical journals always end up catching my eye as well. Needless to say, I normally always find journals that I would love to own in pretty much any store that carries journals. Put me in a stationary store and I go absolutely crazy with lust. What can I say, it's the little things in life that I find the most magical :)

June Wishlist

Happy June! Now that it's June, it officially feels like summer, even though this is my third week of summer break! The weather has been absolutely beautiful (well, until it started raining yesterday…) and I just love being outside. Everything is so bright and sunny and all of the flowers are gorgeous! We got my mom flowers for mothers day and they definitely brighten up our house. 

Needless to say, I'm dying to add even more color in my life! Bright nail polish, shoes, clips, dresses…you name it! I also love switching up my sunglasses every day now that I get to finally wear them. I know that I have way too many pairs, but I'm always finding ones online that I'd love to add to my collection. I don't splurge on myself often, which makes Ebay so addicting! With accessories that are almost all only $1, I want everything! It's all in my budget and almost impossible not to buy it all. 

In between scoring new deals on Ebay, I started my job last week and it's so much fun! I'm working for a child watch program and I absolutely love it. The kids are so cute! I had no idea that the 3-5 year olds would be so gosh darn fun to hang out with. Not only that, but they love Frozen and are always singing the songs. I even got to color some Frozen pictures with them. I can definitely get used to getting payed to play with kids and color pictures! Hopefully June ends up being as great as it's starting out to be!

May Wishlist

As a college student, May means that it's finally summer! And I have had my eye on a ton of things that I'd love to celebrate summer with. First on the list? Keds! For work, I have to wear closed-toe shoes and Keds are my go to footwear. They're so cute and comfortable! And I am absolutely in love with Taylor Swift''s collection. They're so colorful and perfect for summer. I already own a pair of turquoise polkadot Keds, but I'd love to add more to my collection. 

As you can tell, I absolutely love florals and light pink. I saw the floral cross body bag at JC Penny's and fell in love! Unfortunately, it was pretty much the only brand of purse not on sale that day, so I decided to wait and see if it goes on sale before I give in and finally buy it. Isn't it just perfect for summer? 

As always, a coupe of Modcloth dresses made it onto my list. Hopefully, if I save up money this summer, I won't feel as bad splurging on a dress. I don't think I've spent more than $30 on a dress before, but if I end up splurging on a dress then it's definitely going to be on a Modcloth dress! They're just too pretty not to want. The hardest part would be trying to decide which one dress I would pick out of all of the beautiful dresses that I'm in love with. Decisions, decisions….

April Wishlist

Every Spring, I become obsessed with all things pastel and floral. I rotate through my Sally Hansen pastel nail polishes and want to buy every accessory or clothing item with a floral pattern. I just get so excited that the warm weather is coming in, the flowers are blooming, and the grass is turning greener, that I need to celebrate!

I am completley in love with all of the items on my wish list, even though many of them are way out of my price rang. A girl can dream of owning a $100 Modcloth dress…maybe one day! But I just love the floral lace patters on both the violet dress and the high wasted shorts. So cute! And, of course, we can't forget my beloved Keds! I didn't even know they came in coral! I'm dying for another pair of them.

So if you can't tell, I'm super excited it's finally April and that Spring is well on it's way in. The weather is finally warming up and I smile more and more every time I walk outside. If only the weather would get just a tad bit warmer so that I can finally wear my dresses without a coat ruining the entire look. Here's to a bright and flowery Spring!

Wardrobe Wishlist: Feline Fantasy

It's been forever since I've done a wardrobe wish list, and I've missed it! I was so ready to style a dress from Modcloth, but this winter storm that just blew through our last two days of 70 degree weather and dropped the temperature to below 30 degrees yesterday completely dampened my spirits. I couldn't imagine wearing a dress in this weather! Haha, but I can definitely see myself curling up in a big, comfy sweater like this adorable cat one. Seriously, I live in sweaters during the winter. 

And nothing is better than cat-themed clothing! My friend got a shirt from Walmart that is a collage of cat faces, and I was so jealous that I actually drove to Walmart later that week to get one. Little did I know, everyone else loves cats as much as I do, and Walmart was all out! I had even asked an employee to help me find them and she took me to the completely empty shelf. I guess I have to keep my eye out and react quicker when I hear about cat clothes through the grapevine. 

Another wardrobe must for me during the winter are boots. Over the past year, I have collected three pairs of boots, two that cut just below the knee and one that cuts right above the ankle. Boots can dress up any outfit and they are so comfortable. I have a 15-20 walk to and from class, so comfortable shoes are a necessity in my life. I could live in my boots and be one happy camper. It doesn't look like it's going to warm back up to 70 degrees anytime soon, so it's back to sweaters and boots for me!

Wardrobe Wishlist: travel Time

Today I'm leaving London and heading back home to Ohio! That means I've got hours of travel time ahead of me and I know I'm going to want to be as comfortable as possible during my flight across the pond. 

Though I am definitely not a frequent flyer, my trip to London taught me some pretty important things when it comes to a travel wardrobe. The first major thing I learned was bring a sweater! I would get hot and cold throughout the long flight to London and while waiting hours in the airport, so it was great to have a big, comfy sweater to be able to put on when I was cold and simply take off when I got too hot. And I love fun graphic tees, so of course I fell in love with the quirky little pug in glasses t-shirt from Modcloth. 

Another thing I now know to make sure I have on flight is a nice, big carry on bag to put all of my books, puzzle books, iPod, and anything else that will keep me occupied. I have so much more stuff going home than I did coming here, and I have no idea how that happened! Haha, I guess I accumulate a lot more in a 6 week period than I thought. But I have a big carry on bag to ensure that everything fits and is easily accessible during the flight. 

I'm so sad I'm leaving London, but at the same time I can't wait to get back to Ohio and finally have my summer! Lazy days with my sister on our days off of work sound so nice! I absolutely can't wait :)

Wardrobe Wishlist: Day in the Park

There are so many parks around London that I've been longing for the chance to go to one and just read for the entire day. Sadly, I've always got stuff going on, but maybe for my last week here I'll spend an hour or two on a sunny afternoon, reading in the park.

The perfect outfit for the park would definitely involve breezy clothes with tons of colors! And don't forget the big purse to fit everything I could ever need in it. The perfect purses are the ones that seem absolutely endless and can easily fit a nice, big book and all of my other things.

The weather has cooled down here in London to the low 60s, but it's supposed to get up to 70 before I leave! And then it's home to 90 degree weather next week! I know that's pretty hot, but I couldn't be more excited to finally feel the summer weather. I'll definitely be living in tank tops and shorts for the rest of my summer. I hope you guys are soaking up the sun as summer sets in, enjoying the sunny days full of good books and tan lines :)

Wardrobe Wishlist: Summer Lovin'

Yesterday, I actually started sweating when I was walking home from the grocery store. What? Is this real life? Does it actually feel like summer in London? Back home, it's been in the 80s and I've been super jealous. I know, the hot, sticky summer weather sucks, but after such a long and brutal winter, I have been craving those long summer days where you can sit outside in a tank top with a glass of lemonade, wasting the day away with your nose buried in a book. But before that weather came to Ohio, I was off to London where it's in the 50s and 60s ALL THE TIME. Needless to say, I was ecstatic that the weather reached the 70s. 

Of course, that made me want to go to my flat right away, put on a summer dress, and spin around in circles. Haha, I wish I actually did that. But instead I headed straight to my computer and put together an outfit I would love to wear on a summer day. I found an adorable floral dress that I just had to pair with some Ked-like shoes. For some reason, I love the look of Keds with dresses and Keds are always my go-to shoes when I want to be comfortable when I'm walking around while wearing a dress. You can't tell from the picture, but these shoes had sparkly laces, which make them that much more fabulous. 

And lastly, this outfit would not be perfect for summer without all of the color. With blues, yellows, oranges, and greens, you can't help but get the bright, summer vibe. Oh how I wish I was wearing this outfit right now! I hope you guys are having fantastic summer weather and have found the right outfit to celebrate the sun :)

June Wishlist

There is always an endless supply of things on my wishlist, so it's so hard having to narrow down exactly what I want to share on my wishlist posts. Can I just list every single item Modcloth has to offer? Haha, they're always coming out with new dresses, shoes, and bags that make me drool every time I look at them. If only I had an endless bank account and a never ending closet, my life would be simply amazing. 

My favorite item on this list is probably the superman apron from Modcloth. I actually got to go to the London premiere (at least the red carpet part outside) yesterday and I saw the entire cast! That means I got to see Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, and Russell Crowe! Michael Shannon and Russell Crowe were literally two feet in front of me and I just stared at them in I took a million pictures of course! It was such a cool experience and now I am even more excited to see the movie when I can. But until then, wouldn't it be awesome to look like I had Superman's body while I baked? It'd make baking even more fun than it is already :)

And, of course, I've got a couple of tote bags on my wishlist for this month. Tote bags are my best friend because they fit EVERYTHING, from books and notebooks to sunglasses and lip balm. As long as the purse is big enough, I'm bound to love it. 

June has been a fantastic month so far, and I'm looking forward to finishing it up here in London. I have big plans for the next two weeks and then it's back to the US for me. Here's to hoping June ends even better than it has started.

Wardrobe Wishlist: Day Trip

From London, it is crazy how many places you can visit that are just a train ride away. I've already been to Cambridge and Dover in my first two weeks here. Both trips were so much fun and I loved being able to get out of the city for the day and being able to experience such unique places. 

When going on day tips, I've definitely learned some things about how to pick the right wardrobe. I have to where something comfortable and easy to move around in, ALWAYS wear comfortable shoes (one girl had to actually leave Dover after about two hours because her feet hurt so bad. It was so sad!), bring sunglasses, and make sure you're purse is big enough for essentials, but not too big that it's a burden. So I picked out some items that I thought would be perfect to wear if I were to go on another trip for the day. I always have to make sure that what I'm wearing looks good, because I always end up taking a thousand pictures. 

I got a pair of the orange sunglasses in mint from this fantastic store called Primark here for only one pound! I think the shape is so much fun and I love the mint color I picked out. Primark is seriously amazing, but describing my complete obsession with that store would take up an entire post on its own. Needless to say, I'm all set on the sunglasses front when it comes to my next trip! I'm heading to Stratford today for an overnight trip with my program group, so hopefully I take some of the tips I've learned and pack up for a fun adventure to Shakespeare's birthplace!

Wardrobe Wishlist: Drizzly Days

Ever since I've been in England, it's been drizzly/rainy about 70% of the time. Needless to say, I've been wishing I had a wardrobe that was both functional and cute in the rain, rather than just one or the other. I've been wearing the same black rain jacket every single day and I just wish I had a cute trench coat to fight off the rain because then I'd feel so much better about getting wet. Who cares about a little rain if I'm looking so cute? So that's why I was inspired to find an outfit that I loved that could survive the London weather. 

Everyone here is dressed so cute when they're on their way to work, in tights, dresses, and flats. I wish I had thought to bring my tights, but seeing as it was in the 80s when I left Ohio, I thought it would be summer weather here too. Boy was I wrong! But I've heard this is the coldest May they've had in awhile, so I don't feel too bad about my false assumptions. At least I remembered to bring my cute blue and pink polka dot umbrella! That handy little thing always makes me smile :)

It's supposed to be super sunny today, so I'm crossing my fingers that I can finally pull out a pair of shorts and leave the rain coat at home! Hopefully I can visit some markets and maybe go back to the Borough Market, which is pretty much my favorite place on earth. A sunny afternoon filled with tasting cheese and bread? Yes please!

Travel Wishlist

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

Since I'm leaving on Sunday, all I've been thinking about is packing and what is going in my luggage. One thing I've never done before is go on a super long flight, so I have no idea what to have in my carry on! I'm going to have a 2 hour flight, and then a 7 hour flight to London, so I'm going to need a lot of things to keep me occupied during those long hours. 

I am absolutely in love with that Pan Am bag, and I wish I had one of my own! Sadly, I don't so I have to opt for a different bag to bring with me to stash all of my stuff in. I do, though, have a big comfy sweater that I definitely plan on bringing with me. It's not as gorgeous as the blue and white one from Modcloth, but it'll definitely do. And how cute is that owl contact lens case? I'll be rockin' my glasses for a majority of Sunday and Monday, which is perfectly fine with me because I love my glasses. Too bad my contacts will have to be sitting in the boring green and white cases I got from the eye doctor...

So overall, I hope that I'm set with my own carry on for my trip. I may not have the awesome things on my wishlist, but I'm pretty happy with what I do have. As long as I've got my Nook with me, I should be perfectly content for hours on end :)

Summer Wishlist

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

All I can think of is summer, even though technically it's still May. With this summer feeling comes with the craving for fun, bright colors. Not to mention anything and everything that has to do with owls or cupcakes! For my apartment next year, I'm looking for really fun rugs and I found that owl rug on Target's website and fell in love. Wouldn't it be awesome to have an owl rug in my bathroom?

I've always wanted an Instax camera as well and I think it would be perfect to record summer memories. And, of course, the bright yellow is a must for the brightness of summer. While I'm taking pictures, I can lay fun records on that pretty pink turntable. Now that sounds like the absolute perfect summer to me.

Wardrobe Wishlist: Spring Fling

I am so wishing for the warm weather we had all last week. All of a sudden, Ohio decided it should be 50 degrees after being 70 for so long. This makes me so sad! But to combat the cold weather, I wanted to make a spring outfit that I'd love to wear when it's nice, warm, and sunny. Don't the all of the bright colors just want to make you smile? 

I love floral patterned clothes at this time of year, especially seeing all of the pretty flowers on the ground everywhere. I love seeing the flowers on my runs in the morning because they just seem to brighten the world. Haha, I've missed this weather so much! I'm just glad it's supposed to warm right back up on Wednesday. Maybe then I'll be able to wear some shorts and cute tops without freezing. I can't wait!

Wardrobe Wishlist: Summer Treats

I saw this ice cream cone dress on Modcloth and instantly fell in love with how perfect it is for summer. I've been craving ice cream so much lately with this warm weather, and this dress just makes me want the cool summer treat even more! Haha, so I knew I just had to make an outfit centered around it. I'd love to have such a fun dress as part of my own wardrobe!

Summer is so close for me that I can almost taste it! Come Wednesday at 2:30pm, I will be free for the summer and I absolutely cannot wait. So many things are going to happen in the next couple of months and all I have to do is get through these finals to get there. I can do it. And we all know putting together fun outfits like this one is so much more fun that studying for those finals...

Wishlist: Marvelous Mugs

I don't know what it is, but mugs can be so darn cute and I am absolutely obsessed with them! I love going to Good Will or other thrift shops and finding a super cute, quirky mug to take home with me. I just know that when I'm older with my own home, I'm going to have one awesome collection of mugs. My favorites are definitely ones with animals on them, like owls, penguins, and cats. About a month ago, I found one with dinosaurs on it for only 50 cents! You could say I was one happy girl. 

In my own collection now, I have mugs shaped like an ice cream cone, a squirrel, and an owl. Oh, and one of my absolute favorite mugs is my Central Perks mug (from Friends the TV show) that my sister got me two Christmases ago. Needless to say, I'm always excited when I need to get something to drink because then I get to pick out which of my adorable mugs to use. I'd love to collect some literary/book related mugs because I think those would be perfect to use when I start to teach! Oh the possibilities :)

Do you guys like to collect fun mugs? What are some of your favorite mugs that you own?

Wardrobe Wishlist: Light and Breezy

Lately, it has been absolutely gorgeous outside, but with this lovely spring weather has come some pretty hefty winds. That hasn't stopped me from wearing my dresses and skirts though. I have waited too long for these temperatures to let a little wind scare me off. 

This dress I found on Modcloth reminded me so much of the light and breezy winds of spring that I fell in love with it! So, of course, I had to make an outfit that evoked that same feeling. I love the blue and greens and think that they embody spring so well. Not to mention the birds on the ring and watch. Can you tell I'm excited that spring is finally here? 

Temperatures are supposed to dip again over the next couple of days, but warm weather is in the future for next week. It's crazy how finally being able to wear a dress can make me feel so happy. I feel so free and light! Haha, I know I'm weird, but it just feels so good to be happy because of an outfit. If only I had the money to buy every dress I fall in love with on Modcloth....

Wardrobe Wishlist: Tea for Two

The weather has become absolutely gorgeous since around Saturday afternoon and I'm loving every second of it. With this warm weather, all I want to do is wear dresses and have a little picnic with the light breeze keeping me cool under the warm sun. Doesn't that sound like paradise? 

A tea part would be so much fun to have in this weather, so I couldn't help but pick out the perfect outfit for that occasion. I love the florals and lighter, pastel colors for this season. And don't you just adore that tea pot pin? It's so cute and perfect for a tea party. 

Jane Austen is my hero and I'd love to be able to spend an afternoon reading The Jane Austen Handbook while sipping on a cup of tea. Getting lost in the wonderful world of Jane Austen while wearing an adorable floral dress and just feeling fabulous? Sounds good to me :)

Easter Baking Wishlist

Last night, my mom and I were trying to figure out what we wanted to make for dessert after our big Easter lunch and I ended up looking on the internet for hours. Who knew there was so many easter desserts out there? Anyways, we found so many adorable ones from Betty Crocker's Classic Easter Desserts. I have to say that the Bunny Butt Cake is my absolute favorite. We were going to make that, but with all of us kids going back to school Sunday night, my mom and dad would have been left with like half a cake for just the two of them. So instead, we settled on our classic Healthified Strawberry Pie. It's not a fun Easter dessert, but it's still yummy. 

Cupcakes are so much fun, and I love the variety there are on Betty Crocker's website. You can make bunnies, easter baskets, chicks, and even carrots in dirt. Holidays are the best time for baking because there is so much room for creativity and just plain old fun! Do you guys do any fun baking on Easter? I'd love to hear the recipes you use!

April Wishlist

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8

There are so many things that have caught my eye that I'd love for the month of April. I'm dying to have a new watch and anything in pastel colors looks absolutely adorable to me. And mustache cookie cutters? How much cooler can you get? Hopefully I'll be able to get some more Friday baking days in with my friend before she graduates. Then, I'll have to go back to baking by myself next year, but at least I'll finally have my own kitchen in the apartment I'll be sharing with three of my friends. Oh boy, good things are in the future for me. Here's to hoping that April is as awesome and not as stressful as I think it will be :)

April is SO CLOSE! And I'm hoping that with this new, beautiful month comes some beautiful spring weather. April is going to be so crazy with the last weeks of my sophomore year of college, planning for my London trip that I leave for in May, getting as many Quidditch tournaments and team bonding in as possible, and survive not seeing my sister for entire month. Just thinking about it makes me so excited, nervous, stressed, and sad all at the same time. It's about to be an adventure indeed.
