Ever since I was little I had this weird urge to label everything. Probably why one of my favorite “toys” growing up was that label maker from Jo-Ann Fabrics. Fast forward 10 years, monograms are my THING! I’ve partnered up in a collaboration with Marley Lilly–an online boutique that specializes in monogramming everything head to […]

The Top for Every Occasion

I’m struggling (hard) with finding time for everything: school, work, blog, family, friends, & my faith. Luckily, I felt the need to take a break from studying and finally get to writing…which brought me here.

Decorating on a College Girl’s Budget

So you’re probably thinking…”How did this 19-year-old just re-do her entire room on a college girl’s budget?” When I moved, I got rid of everything and just started over.
