Friday 5!

These shoes. We ALL know it wouldn't' be a Friday 5 without a par of shoes, and these bad boys are pretty close to perfect.

Turnabout is tomorrow! Expect a picture dump sometime next week! I love my dress, and my group, It's gonna be great!

I'm thinking about giving up soda for lent this year. I've become wayyyy to dependent on it, and it's soo bad for you. I've done it before for 6 months, so 40 days shouldn't be so bad!

I've been working out almost everyday this week, and I'm feeling really good about it! My favorite is just doing 30-40 minutes on the elliptical!

I've started using the website along with it's app on my phone and I really like it! More to come on this soon!

What have you been loving this week?

Spring Come Soon... Please?!

An open Letter to Spring:

this weeks forecast. :,(

Dear Spring,
        I'm rather tired of your friend winter over here. Although I love the snow and a fire in the fireplace or two, but I'm really cold. I do not enjoy having leave my heated blanket in the morning. I hate having to find a matching pair of gloves in the morning. I hate that my wet hair freezes the second I walk out the door in the morning.

       I've threatened multiples times to take a detour to Florida over spring break. I am practically winter's biggest fan, but I AM DONE.

       I look forward to wearing sunglasses and driving around with my windows down blasting country music. I look forward to wearing shorts and Jack Rogers and my Lilly dresses. I look forward to accumulating tons of freckles on my face and no looking like a a complete ghost all the time.

       However, I do not look forward to having to work out in order to get ready for the beach and shaving my legs more than once a week.

It's Raining.... It's Pouring!

Hey guys!
    Today in Chicago came the Great Melt. It's been raining for at least a solid four hours now (and it's only 8am!), and it's above 32˚, so basically, the streets are covered in icy slush and lots and lots of water. This only means one thing: Rain Boots!

Here are some of my favorites:
// 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 //

Which are your favorites?

My Perfect Imperfections

Hey guys!
    This post is inspired by a popular tag video that's on youtube called the Perfect Imperfections Tag.  This is where you list 3 things that you don't like about yourself, but then you come back and say 3 things that you do like about yourself! It's meant to be a bit of a confidence booster! (I feel like this could potentially come off as sounding conceited, but that's obviously not what I'm going for here. just voicing my thoughts :)

       One of the things I don't like about my body is my stomach. I do not  have a flat stomach, and although I would love a great set of abs, I don't think I have the body type for them. I think this is a problem area for most girls though.

       Another thing I'm not crazy about are my arms. Although I have fairly muscular arms, my shoulders are very wide, and kind of chubby looking. I get muscle from working out and ballet, but my shoulders are still pretty wide, and they can look a little fat in clothing such as tank tops.

      Lastly, I don't love my hips. I feel like they aren't extremely proportionate to my body, and look wider than they are. Ahh the struggles of being a girl haha

     That being said, there are a lot of things that I love about myself too!

       I really love my eyes. I have minty/foresty green eyes and really long and eyelashes. I like this about myself especially because I can't change this/ don't have a ton of control over this. I can change what my body looks like by eating healthier and working out, but my eyes are naturally really pretty (at least I think so) by themselves.

      Another thing I really like about myself is my hair. My hair grows really quickly, and is a naturally reddish brown color. I think it's a fairly unique color, and I really like how it looks curled. My hair holds a curl very very well which is a huge blessing to a curling iron addict ;)

       Lastly, I really like my skin. Although it's not always the clearest, like right now for example, it's still very manageable. When I was little, I used to be very insecure about my freckles and porcelain skin, but not I love my freckles and wish they hadn't disappeared from my face! (I still have them on my arms). I also appreciate my pale skin. I know that I'll really appreciate it when I'm older and hopefully not too wrinkly ;) And hey, what's a little self tanner or spray tan here or there? ;)

What are your perfect imperfections? Comment down below or feel free to write your own post!

Monday Musings

Hey y'all, 
     I've been having a bit of blogger's block recently, so some recent thoughts are just going to have to do for today :)

+ The movie "Crazy Stupid Love" is basically one of the best movies ever, so there's that. All of my previous derogatory comments towards Ryan Gosling have been retracted. (But I still don't like the Notebook)

+ I had lunch with my Grandma on Saturday and it was so fun :) I love hearing stories from when she was younger and about my dad!

+ Tbh I'm totally slacking on my "Q&A" book. I haven't done it in like a month, but I'm going to start up again!

+ Tbh, I've been spending wayyyy too much time on Tumblr and Pinterest recently haha

+ The temperature is going to go above freezing here in Chicago this week and basically the whole state is going to flood. When I say there's at least a foot of snow on the ground everywhere, I'm not kidding.

+ One of my favorite bands- Bastille- released a video of them singing their hit Pompeii with an orchestra and I'm basically in love. So there's that.

+ I'm going to my school's Turnabout dance (I asked my friend Alex) in a couple of weeks and I ordered a dress, but I'm not sure I love it, so if you guys have any suggestions, they will be greatly appreciated!

+ When I'm sitting in my chair with my blanket on my lap, Whiskers likes to lay on the part thats on the floor and it's pretty much adorable.

I'd find it hard to believe if you enjoyed this post, but, ya know ;)

Friday 5

Hey Y'all! Hope you guys had a great week! My week wasn't terrible, but it was the first 5-day week of school since December.... :/ #Chiberia

Okay, so I tweeted a picture of some boots that I had been looking at buying a few weeks ago, and then I got a giftcard for christmas and caved :/ (Would it really be a Friday 5 without me mentioning shoes?)

They're from, but sadly I think that they are no longer available :(

I'm not going to lie to you, this whole post could be about shoes, but I'm going to refrain.
Fact: I'm obsessed with The Office
Fact: I'm very very very excited to be going on a ski trip with my school next week! I cannot wait! Granted, I'm not the best skiier, as you may have read... but I'm still super pumped!

I have a slight Diet Coke obsession. Let's just say, I maybe up verrrrry late tonight. 

I'm on the lookout for a reasonably priced Lilly Pulitzer dress to wear to my cousins confirmation in March, so keep your eyes open for me!

The Olympics ceremonies start tonight! Who's going to be watching?!

Oh hey there....

Well, That whole new year resolution about blogging consistently......
#Thatawkwardmomentwhen...... :(

Junior year is proving to be very time consuming. It's not that everything is realllly hard, but I just have so much to do!

I'm really going to try to get back on the blogging wagon because I really like it!
Even when I'm not blogging though, I always try to keep up with my Pinterest and Tumblr!

Talk to y'all soon!
