New Years Resolutions

I have been so M.I.A the past... what? 6 months? Year? I'm pretty sure if I was an actual missing person I would be assumed to be dead by now.
Are we past the point of apologies? Because I think we are. If I did it again you probably wouldn't even take me seriously, so I'm not going to! 

If you haven't already noticed there have been quite a few big changes to the layout of this blog! As for the core, important things, they are the same, I just figured it was time for a new look! I have grown up quite a bit since I created this blog, and not only this, but the content and goals have been slightly altered since the beginning as well, so along with that I reformatted and am going to try to turn over a new leaf :)

In my College Transfer Success class this past semester, I learned something very important.  Goals need to be specific, they need to be time bound, and they need to be feasible.  
My first goal for the new year is to improve upon this blog so that I can be like the YouTube stars who don't work and spend their life on their websites.
But does that meet any of the above criteria?
My first goal is to create one well written post per week, so that by mid year I can have 20 subscribers.
Does that meet the criteria?

My New Years Resolutions are...

  1. My first goal is to exercise 1-2 times per week, not necessarily yo lose weight, but to gain muscle and become more fit
  2. To drink 1-2 cups of water per day, and drink one soft drink or less per week
  3. To finish assignments when they are assigned (therefore not procrastinate) so that I may be overall less stressed
  4. To take one day per week to work on college and scholarships
  5. To read my Bible or Devotional and pray daily, as well as work harder at paying attention and being more involved with my church 
  6. And finally, to create one well written post per week, so that by mid year I can have 20 subscribers.
I hope you all had a wonderful New Years, and I hope that whatever Resolutions you have made for yourself you can stick to them! :)

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…
