Christmas Presents...

I just felt the need to show you what I bought for everyone in my life for Christmas... It is as follows:


(She is a nurse, I thought it would be fun to scare people with while she is working ;)



(I got it in Light Carolina Blue and White. Hardcore Carolina Tar Heels Fans right here! :)

Mom & Dad (together):
I bought them a black picture frame from T.J.Maxx, I am putting a poem I wrote for them in it. It is called a "Did You Ever Imagine" Poem and it talks about me growing up. Their Christmas card is a letter of gratitude I wrote to them. We had a project for school about our family and those two things started out assignments, but they made me think, so I decided to give them to them as gifts :)

Little Brother (8 years old):

(For those of you who don't know what skylanders are... I don't really know either, it's some kind of video game that he likes...)

Papaw & Papa (Grandfathers):


Memaw & Mamaw (Grandmothers):
I am giving them a copy of another poem from that project. It is called an "I am From" Poem and it talks about them and my life as I've grown up and how they have influenced it. They will cry :') They always cry lol ;)

Cousin (Girl) & Her Daughter (5 years old):
I bought my cousin a PocketBac from Bath and Body Works, put it in a Bumble Bee magnetic holder, and an "All I Want is a Cranberry Kiss" lipgloss.
I bought the five year old costume Jewelry and play make-up. She loves to dress up :) From

All From 
(My Friend Kaitlyn, I grew up with her :)

(For a girl who has always been like a sister to me, she is my neighbor and in college)

(I bought these, but the girl I bought them for hates me now so....)

(Bought them for someone, decided to keep them ;)

(An artsy friend who loves neon green)

(For a friend who wants to be a photographer)

(Also for Kaitlyn)

And then I also bought (knock off) Pandora Beads from a street vender on the OBX (For another neighbor who has also been like a sister to me). 
Feather Earrings (For my Best friend who dresses like a highlighter :), a mustache ring (another friend), and heart studs (another friend) from Rue 21
And music note earrings (a new friend) from

Boyfriend :)

(He is big into playing guitar, I got it personalized with his name on one side and Philipians 4:13 on the other :)

I hope this gave you some ideas about what to buy the special people in you life :) Comment or e-mail me if you have any questions about anything!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's

Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
