A refreshing perspective on the Steubenville rape trial. Totally worth the read, especially if your outlook on humanity is in need of a boost.

Monday Musings: Valentine Edition

Hello Lovelies,

3 weeks out is a perfect time to start looking for Valentines gifts my friends. Before you think I’m an over achiever who’s bombarding you with V-day love before it’s even the short month, think of this: Two weeks average shipping on anything you buy, right? That’s a few days to shop and consider and a few days to buy something different if you open it and think, wtf? I can’t give them this!

Here’s a few of my personal suggestions:

A Jane Austen love mug for your literary beau, belle or bestie.

Mr. Darcy Proposal Mug - Jane AustenMr. Darcy Proposal Mug - Jane Austen

For the internet guru or busy television junkie a Reddit Gold or HuluPlus subscription is major. Print out the subscription certificate and stick it in a card with a sweet note. They’ll remember their valentine all year-long.

For those of you in climates actually experiencing Winter, a cozy scarf with a tiny personally heart stitched in the underside gives you the excuse to tell them they can carry your heart with them. Yes. I got that cutesy. No regrets.

Hope these sparked a few ideas for you! Happy Monday!

Studying Spring Style

Hello Lovelies,

For most of us Spring semester is either here or right around the corner. New classes mean new opportunities, new friends and hopefully new dates, at least for those of you that don’t attend an all women’s college. (Fear not sisters: that’s what the weekends are for.)

Coffee Date Cute

Here’s some simple inspiration for a cute coffee/study date. Cozy neutrals and bold girly pops of color. I’m not usually a fan of orange, but with cream and fuchsia, it can definitely work. Downplayed jewelry and makeup help to balance the bright bag and top.

Enjoy :)

HuffPost Blogger Weighs In

Hello Lovelies

A few days ago I gave my two cents on the Taylor Swift fiasco. To summarize, don’t judge other’s based on their sexuality.  Also anyone who dates Taylor may get a song or two written about them, but they also get tons of publicity, meaning they reap plenty of rewards for the time with T. However,  Saturday morning a Huffington Post blogger weighed in, so I thought I’d share just to reiterate. Afterall, two heads are better than one.

Fuss Free Monday Hair

Hello Lovelies,

I haven’t started back classes yet, but I know when I do I’ll want a sweet and simple fuss free look to get me through the day. Hair out of my face, but more put together than a pony tail or a bun. We all want to make a good first impression,after all.

I think I’ve found the one! Thought I’d share just in case ya’ll are feeling the same. Enjoy! Courtesy of The Beauty Department.
