Governor's School!

Well, you would never believe what I have been up to all Summer! I just got back from Governor's school! Which was an adventure in itself...
 if you don't know what Governor's School is, it is a special academic program for 5 and 1/2 weeks, for "the best and the brightest" in the state of NC, and I was very honored that I received the invitation to attend! I went for English, so I had one class that discussed Fact vs. Fiction, and another that focused on Creative Writing. I also had an Area II class that focused on Philosophy and Politics, and an Area III class that focused on your beliefs and feelings.
Basically, it was a very modern and informal type of school, 6 days a week, and whenever I wasn't in class they kept us extremely busy with performances and seminars! 

So as usual, I apologize... I should have posted at some point, but I did not, and there isn't much we can do about it now, so I am very sorry!

How about a little peek into what happened while I was gone to make up for it? :)
 This is how our TAC (Teacher Assistant/Counselor, like a dorm mother) decorated our door...

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…
