I have so many other things I want to post, but I didn’t want to miss out on reminding you all about #GivingTuesday.

In continuing with my summer-themed week, I thought I’d share my Summer 2015 Bucket List.

Weekend Inspiration

I can’t believe it’s already the last weekend of January – how does time fly so fast? And with that, it’s my last weekend of winter break before classes and my internship (!!!) begin on Monday. It’s tough to pin down what was the best part of this break (maybe the fact that it was…

Oh, to be Blue Bayou

I’ve recently become a big Vera Bradley fan ever since I discovered their Canterberry Magenta design. I’m still building my personal collection, but so far I’m the proud owner of the large duffel, zip ID case, luggage ID tag, and the Mandy bag (currently in shipment to my apartment).
