Feelin' 5 kind of ways: Post- Senior year Homecoming

I think this is a song or a saying or something that people say a lot.

  1. Not hungover- not about that life (just thought I'd establish that)
  2. Like I can't walk. My feet doe. they're definitely not a pretty sight. Like, at all.
  3. Like I need about 14 more hours of sleep
  4. Like I need about 7 extra weeks to apply for college. lol in my dreams.
  5. Like I can't believe that was my last homecoming. like hold on wut???

normal posts to resume tomorrow.

Friday 5

Throwback to last years homecoming:
 #nodates #nobodylikesus

Pretty freaking pumped for this weekend.
Who's excited for the dress reveal?

I found this shirt on this morning and I think I need it.

I think I'm going to to an OOTD for today's outfit because I'm dressed up in Blue & Gold, but I went SEC tailgate style! Look for that post next week as well as a Homecoming Recap

Can I just say how much I love the song "Highway Don't Care" by Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw.  

I wore those ballet flats I talked about a few days ago, and they killed my feet. They were definitely not as comfortable as they seemed :(

I hope everyone had a good weekend!

"Target" Practice.....

Do you see what I did with the title there? Aren't I soo funny? Don't answer that.

I hopped on over to Target (read: tar-jay) last night to "pick up a couple of necessities" and ended up spending a paycheck. Sorry I'm not sorry? It would have been worse. Trust me, I had to refrain from buying quite of few adorable things.

What I did pick up is shown below minus the adorable heeled booties because I really couldn't justify buying them at this very second (that's such a lie I totally justified it, I just felt guilty about buying 3 pairs of black shoes oops) so run, do not walk, to your nearest Target and pick all of this up.

Women's Mossimo Supply Co. Ona Scrunch Ballet Flat • Mossimo • $16.99
Women's Mossimo® Gail Ankle Strap Open Pump • Mossimo • $29.99
Women's Mossimo® Hartley Buckle Strappy Boots - Black • Mossimo • $29.99
Women's Knit Shift Dress • Merona • $24.99

What you can take away from this post: Target is a death trap for your wallet, and mine is on a suicide mission.

Happy Fridayyy

Yay! you've made it to another weekend! Well, technically you'll have to make it to around 4 o'clock today, but hey, we're closer than we were last time I posted!

I'm currently typing this Thursday afternoon at Starbucks and I have already devoured a pumpkin scone and am sipping on a caramel macchiato (a girl can only take so many PSL's ;) I thought I would just take today to reflect on my week! (I suppose we could call this a Friday 5, but I have no idea how many bullet points I'm going to have, so basically it's a free for all)

+ The sunrises I've seen driving to school at the bright and early 6:45 AM are really gorgeous! Although, I wouldn't go as far to say that I'm not looking forward to day light Savings to end in a few weeks.

+ I got a case for my school laptop this week from and have decoated it with an adorable sticker from It came in the mail the same day and I'm pretty excited about it. All it's missing is a giant glitter monogram and a sticker and I'm all set!

+I'm in the home stretch of applying to colleges, and you could say that I'm freaking out. This process is unlike anything I've ever gone through. I'd say what's most difficult is the fact that you've never done anything like it before, you trying to navigate it can be sooo hard. I'm trying to have all of my applications in by November first regardless of deadlines, so hopefully I'll be hearing back from schools fairly soon!
P.S. I feel like there should be a support group for seniors applying for college because lemme tell ya: It's a whirlwind.

+Also, can I just put something that's currently rocking my world right now out there: Choosing a college major. Like... wut??!! Since when am I an adult?

+I've worn my Washington D.C. Spirit Jersey that my cousins got me at least twice in the past week (including today) and I"m not even sorry about it. It's literally the best thing ever. I will most definitely be purchasing more in the very near future... especially this Kentucky one!


+I haven't been working very hard on my 18 before 18 list and time is ticking! The only things I've crossed off so far are: attend a Major League Sporting Event, and I've read 1/5 books. I need to whoop my booty  into shape!

+Speaking of Shape, my body is definitely not in the best of it. I really want to head to the gym more with my mom and look good for homecoming next week. I haven't exactly been adhering to my meal plan...

+Diet Coke is life.

+Did I mention TGIF yet?

+Thursday my dad woke me up with: "Good morning Jordan!! Happy Throwback Thursday Thursday!" Like dad, who are you?

Well, thanks for bearing with me on this randomest of Fridays! On this weekend agenda, I'm working, teaching religious Ed. Working on College Apps, and attending the Chicago Marathon on Sunday to cheer on my Uncle for his 6th (maybe 7th?) Marathon! Go Uncle Mike!!

Talk to y'all next week :)

Homecoming Dress Picks 2014

Hey everybody!
I know some of you may have already had your homecomings, so I apologize if I've missed you, but my HC is Oct 18th and I'm pretty pumped about it despite the fact that I'm date-less and have zero plans so far -oops- One thing I DO have though is my dress! Now, obviously I'm not going to tell you what dress I've chosen because that would be cray-cray, but I will tell you it's one of the ones I've featured below!
Speaking of: below are some dresses that I've found while looking around that I think are super cute. Plus, they're in a variety of price ranges so you'll probably find something you like! (hopefully)

Which one is your favorite?
Which one do you think I bought?
I hope everyone's having a great week so far!

I feel like I need to address my intermittent absence.
Senior year has been really different than the rest of high school so far. I currently have two jobs, and and involved in a lot of activities after school as well. Not to mention the lovely experience of prepping for the ACT in a few weeks and applying for college. Slightly important.

I feel like I haven't been very dedicated to this blog recently and that upsets me. I hope to create a place full of content that people enjoy and would be interested in, but it's proving to be very difficult right now. Absence does not always imply laziness it can imply the lack of inspiration (and time).

I would love to know what you guys feel like reading. I'm really drawing a blank at this time. This blog is going a lot of different places: fashion, lifestyle, fitness etc.

I hop to resume a regular posting schedule in the near future, but I honestly can't make any promises right now. I hope you understand and stick with me for now.
