Style Icons

So today someone asked me who I based my style off of. While for me I find  style icons can be slightly overrated, but they can come in handy when you are in a fashion rut. Most of my style icons are the typical preppy people that we all know and love some are from TV shows other are form real life. Some great places to look for style icons would be of course TV, Internet, and the occasional magazine here are my top four style icons

1. Sarah Vickers: I absolutely love this girl's style it is an old school prep that is perfectly polished, her outfits are always so well put together and she really captures the New England Prep.

2.Kate Middleton, many crave after her lifestyle, while I find myself craving after her closet. She is always seen in such lady like outfits, and like Sarah she always looks polished and poised

3. If you are a fan of Pretty Little Liars than you will know this one. Spencer Hastings, I was drawn to the show for the purpose of her style, She posses a preppy polished look, which I always try to achieve.

4. The one the only Queen B, Blair Waldorf has been my style idol since the series came out in 2007.  I have lusted over her headband collection and her effortless girlish style for years now.

There are many more style icons that I use in my everyday to day life but for the most part my style come straight from me as well. I only wear what I like and feel comfortable in, to me that all that matters. I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday

Sun Kissed

Next week is spring break which makes me super excited. This is time where I am going to catch up on work. Usually spring break for me is spent working on my tan but we are staying home this break so am I going for a healthier alternatives. I am going to try and fake a tan with the help of some special products

This is my usual tan from the summer, I hope that I can at least achieve this during my break.

Bronzer is always  a must  for me, I have naturally olive skin so physician formula goes really great with my skin tone.

Estee Lauder has some great options as far as eyeshadow colors, I am not a huge fan of the blue only because have brown eyes.

During the summer I live off this stuff, it dose not turn you orange thank goodness, it has a little shimmer to it which is really fun. Just make sure to rub it in all the way to avoid streaks and spots.

So during spring break I am going to have this products by my side, this way I can come back looking like I just spent break in Florida.

One nice thing about living in an all girls dorm first is the privacy, second is the fact that you can run around in baggy sweatshirts and flannel pj pants 24/7 and no one will judge you. Well I am afraid to say it but next year I will not have this freedom, I am going to be living in a co-ed dorm, it’s band new I am super excited! Well this got me thinking who  will be living on the floor so this means that I need to find some supper cute pj and lounge wear, that’s well is not trashy. I am not a fan of yoga pants and shorts with words on the butt, I come on can we be a little classier. Anyway this got me thinking of some cute pjs that are classy, so here are the top choice for me.

 I love the beading detail on this sleep shirt

simplicity is always classy
I love that this night gowns come in all these different colors.

 Of course Lilly Pulitzer came out with some great lounge wear !!

Then there is Vineyard Vines and their lounge wear
Hope everyone had a great Monday!!

study techniques

With midterm  next week the whole campus is in a frenzy, you will be hard pressed to be able to find a study desk at the library they are all full. You are continually running on caffeine and well for me my body is retaliating to all the stress so I am now sick. Anyways I thought it would be really helpful to give  guys some study techniques to use

1. Go back and look at your notes, I color code my notes to help me find the bigger concepts and then the sub-concept within  them.

2.Use flashcard for basic memorization; check out my stacks of flashcards for biology !!!

3.Take short breaks like 10 minuets, I learned this in general psy this semester that your brain process info better in short integrals rather than cramming everything in at once.

4.Get sleep and take care of your self during this week , I know it can be a very stressful week but still you don't want to be like me and have your body retaliating against you, it will slow you down.
This was a picture from lest semester midterm cram session. Never again will I do that to myself.

Good luck everyone one on their midterms and look at it this way, it will be spring break in no time !!

P's and Q's College Style

I don't know if its just me, but lately I have realized that college students are not the most polite people(shocker I know haha).Today I was getting breakfast from one of our dinning halls and one of the serving ladies was taken back when I said thank you and to have a nice day, she said that made her day, most college student apparently don't even bother to say thank you. I was surprised, I could not believe this that even a simple thank you could  make this women day. This made me really reflect on how much I really use my manners and to my dismay I came to the conclusion that since I came to college I have not been as polite as I was in high school. But this is going change, my parents brought me up right I am not going to let the lack of manners on campus effect  me. My goal is to well focus more on my manners, to say more thank yous, hold more doors open, and well over all be more aware of opportunities in which I can help people. I am going to kick off this little goal with  the conquering one of my greatest fears, needles. As I was walking back from class this afternoon I saw all over campus blood drive signs. What better way to help someone than to help donate blood, so wish me luck on this little adventure.

Money Money Money

Well it has come to a sad end the end of my Vera Bradley wallet, I  loved this wallet and it was great for college too because it could hold everything in needed in it such as phone, change, lipstick, multiple cards yet it as still  compact, I was able to carry it around everywhere. Well after a tragic accident with some soda, my wallet will never be the same so I am on the search yet again for a new wallet.

Francesca Joy dose an amazing job on her totes so I had to look up the wristlets. They are unbelievably perfect for me .

Francesca's Collection dose a great job of creating unusual accessories I love the color combination.

So I love the Lilly wristlet and it could fit all the essential that I need, it even has a place for my chapstick.

I love the durability of leather and Coach design is so cute .

I love the color of This Tory Burch wallet it would match everything with anything I own. 

Vineyard Vines whale wristlet .. Yes it's beyond cute.

Dose anyone have any suggestions of other places I could look for wallet/wristlets? I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
