My Obsession is Real.. w/ Planners

Happy Wednesday!

Currently making muffins & watching SVU. I’ve got serious love for this show. I’ve been watching this show since I was in elementary school. It’s probably an obsession at this point, lol. Who else is with me?

& guess what, another YouTube video is going up this week!

Since we’re on the discussion of obsessions, who else loves a cute planner? I’m always on the search for a cute planner that catches my eye, one that sticks out from other planners, and a planner that matches with my personality. I know, seems like a bit much for something as simple as a planner. I look at it this way: this planner is what keeps your whole life organized. Everything from your homework that’s due (if you’re a student), appointments you have, events that are in the future, to-do lists you’ve made for yourself, when to write blog posts/film a YouTube video (in my case), and other simple tasks like “stop by grocery store”. So yeah, a cute planner is a MUST for me because I’m always writing in it, looking at it, and depending on it to keep my day organized.

I found the perfect planner on Amazon. The brand is me & my BIG ideas. & you guys, this planner is everything you could want. It’s colorful in all the right ways, the months and the weeks within that month are color coordinated, each page before the month page is decorated with a design or quote, and there are tons and I mean tons of uplifting quotes in the cutest places. See? PERFECTION. If you have an obsession with finding the prefect planner for you, check out their website. I can promise, you’ll find one on their website that’ll fit you perfectly.

I know, this seems silly to write an entire blog post about a planner. But I figured I can’t be the only who searches for the prefect planner, and since I’ve found me & my BIG ideas, I wanted to share this brand with you guys because their products are great!

I may be a little psycho but at least I’m a psycho with a cute planner. Haha.

Have a great week & we’ll talk soon!

Having a “Hat” Moment

Happy August 1st, everyone!

Currently sipping my iced coffee while sitting at work! I officially finished my summer class this past Friday, & man oh man, was that a great feeling. My fall semester starts later on in August so I’m trying to soak up all the free time I have left.

Here’s the thing, I’m trying to get over being ashamed that it’s taking me longer than 4 years to graduate with my undergrad degree even though I’ve now done two summer semesters, which means I should have actually graduated early. When I switched my major to marketing, I didn’t realize how much harder my business classes would be. But they have been really hard for me, I’ve definitely received a few D’s, and a D is not a passing grade so I’ve had to retake those classes. I’m frustrated with myself because not only is it taking me longer than I would like to get my degree, it’s also costing me a lot more money.

With all that being said, I still just need to remember that everything, and I mean everything happens for a reason. & so what, it’s taking me a little bit longer to finish school but that’s okay because what matters is the fact that I’m finishing.

I just want anyone out there that’s feeling discouraged with what they’re doing to not give up. Maybe you didn’t get that job you wanted or maybe you aren’t where you expected to be in life. All that matters is the fact that you aren’t giving up. In order to succeed and live the life you want to live, you have to grind every single day to reach your next goal, whatever that goal is. I can promise you, what you want out of life isn’t going to just fall in your lap. You have to work for it and you have to work hard, even if you hate the grind. But grinding everyday at something you love will pay off in the end! & just because you aren’t where you want to be doesn’t mean you still can’t get there.

Okay, inspirational speech over with! Lets talk about this outfit:

I have been loving wearing this hat this summer! I used to think I couldn’t pull off a hat, but in reality you can pull off anything you want to pull off! My mom actually picked this hat out for herself but I decided to try it on myself and I fell in love.

A hat is perfect for a day by the pool, if you want to shade your face while you go for a run outside, making a trip to the mall, or having a casual afternoon/evening out with friends, family, or your significant other!

Also, a hat pulls together so many different types out outfits! You can wear a hat with jeans/shorts and a tee, with a casual dress, or with workout clothes.

Let me know if you need some style inspiration, I’ll help out anyway I can!

Have a great week & we’ll talk soon!

How to Dress like the Hottest Babe at a Festival

Hey, hey, hey, it’s finally Friday!

What are your weekend plans?? Hopefully something fun!

This blog post came to me yesterday in the middle of nowhere so I figured I’d go for it.

If you know me, you know I have a strong passion for fashion (did NOT mean to rhyme right there, lol) & I love, love, love festivals (I love animals more, but that’s not what this particular blog post is about).

I’ve realized I seem to get a lot of recognition with the outfits I wear to festivals, whether it’s at the festival and total strangers are complimenting me on my outfit or if I post a picture of my outfit on social media.

Since there are festivals still taking place in July and August, I thought I’d share with you where to buy some outfits that make you stick out in the crowd!

Δ Windsor Store

They have a huge variety of dresses, tops, and bottoms. I seriously mean HUGE. Their prices are amazing and you can wear the pieces of clothing for your everyday life, not just to festivals! Double win.

Δ Urban Outfitters

I know everyone knows about this store but they have some great pieces that can be worn to festivals. Their prices a bit higher, but they give off that major “boho” feel!

Δ VXN Designs

These outfits are definitely more for the risk takers. They are way more on the scandalous and sexy end. They have very high prices but their outfits/costumes are so unique. You would catch everyone’s eye wearing one of their pieces.

Δ Make Me Chic

Make Me Chic is another store that has great prices! Their pieces are very versatile and they have pages upon pages of clothing items. Their items are more on the relaxed side, not so va-va-voom, but they still make statements!

Δ Little Black Diamond

If you have heard of iHeartRaves and like what they have, then Little Black Diamond is your store! I would categorize this store as more of “rave wear” like iHeartRaves is. Little Black Diamond just has more originality!

Δ Miss Holly

Miss Holly is one of my favorite stores to buy a festival outfit at. At first glance, it doesn’t look like you could wear their pieces to a festival, but I can promise you can do anything you want to do. Especially when it comes to fashion. I’ve rocked two of their sets at two different festivals, and they both were such a success!

Δ Planet Blue

Plant Blue is more on the expensive side but their stuff is so, so, so, cute. Their items make you look like a little ball of sunshine. The clothes really are so effortlessly chic and are perfect for festivals!

Δ Verge Girl

Verge Girl has a more retro sense of style to their pieces, which gives them their uniqueness. Their prices are also the bomb dot com and you can have a lot of fun mixing up their clothing items to have them fit your style.

Δ Princess Polly

They have a killer selection of bodysuits, which I think are perfect for festivals! They’ve got super sassy bralettes, which are super fun & comfortable to wear at festivals.

Δ Beginning Boutique 

Beginning Boutique has some more simple pieces that still manage to make that statement, but then they also have a variety of extremely unique and fun pieces! Check out their “Best Sellers” page and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Some other places include Nasty Gal, Dolls Kill, & B~Glittz!

Well there you have it- some of my favorite stores to shop at for clothes, accessories, shoes, and festivals!

Let me know if you want to know of anymore stores, I seriously have a very extensive list.
