What it's REALLY Like Having a Dog in College

What it's REALLY Like Having a Dog in College

Hi doggie lovers!! I'm sure y'all know by now that I have a dog Mia, a maltipoo (you can follow her on Insta here). Our family got her in January, it was really one of those things that you just chalk up to fate, and I brought her with me to college in February! I was so excited and nervous about having a dog in college and I can honestly say that it has changed my life! I thought I would do a post sharing the pros and cons, the real truth about what it's like having a dog in college!

An Instagram Review of Summer 2017

Hi friends!!! I can't believe summer is officially over! Well obviously by summer I mean that school has started, the season is nowhere near over unfortunately :( #texasprobs

My senior year of college has started!!! How insane. This summer was really special and definitely one to remember!! Here are a couple of highlights I wanted to share that sum up Summer 2017!! 

Seeing my Grandma!!!

Right as spring semester ended, I flew to San Diego to stay with my grandma for a few days!!! It was my first time flying alone and it was so much fun seeing her! She is so close to me and while it stinks that she's so far, I love an excuse to come to Cali :) 

Back in the land of perfect weather 🌴🌼🌞

MIA MIA!

This was my first summer in Austin with Mia and we had so much fun! Although I was summer taking classes, we got to spend a lot of fun together and we went to Zilker park probably twice a week. She loves it there and I love meeting other doggies and watching her play!! You can follow her on Insta now too! ;)

Park days are the best days 🌿🌻

SHAWN <3

Anyone that knows me knows that I'm completely in love with Shawn Mendes. He is probably my favorite artist and I'm just obsessed. This summer I went to his Illuminate Tour in Dallas and it was AMAZINGGG! This was my third time seeing him in concert and agh it was definitely a night to remember. 

Third time seeing you and it never gets old πŸ’œ

Reunited with Ma Girlssss

I was finally reunited with two of my best friends from high school!! We met back in Abilene, after so many months apart! You might remember these two gals from their Makeover Mondays a long time ago (link to Ems Makeover, Laurs Makeover)!! Em was in Spain all last semester and most of this summer, I hadn't seen her in over 7 months!! Laur was in Taiwan for 6 weeks this summer and I hadn't seen her since last semester! It was so good to see them and hang out with them for a few days before we had to go back to school!! Having great friends makes coming home even better!!

Senior year of college starts next week 😱 #old

Little Bro goes to College!!!

The end of summer was marked by dropping Spencer off at college!!! All the way in Cleveland, Ohio. This was my first time visiting Ohio and while the drive there and back was definitely not a highlight, getting to visit my little bro's campus and seeing where he'll be living for the next 4 years was really exciting!

I'm not crying I just got something stuck in my eye okay

Hope you guys liked seeing my look back from this summer!! I'm so excited for this semester and what's to come!!! Thanks again for your support as always!

Plaid 3 Ways

Plaid 3 Ways

Hello to all my plaid friends!!!! First let's start off with a little clarification. Plaid vs Flannel. Easily and mistakenly used often interchangeably, but I'm going to clear it up once and for all. Plaid is a pattern, while flannel is a material. Most of the plaid shirts I own are flannel, but I usually just call them "plaids" because I'm not quite sure what the material criteria for a flannel shirt entails. Anyway, moving on!

Hi hi friends!!!!!! So I recently turned 20, which is absolutely nuts to me, and I had a great birthday dinner with some of my close friends and decided to vlog the day for my first time!!!

Food Diary: Seoul, Korea

Food Diary: Seoul, Korea

Hello foodies!!!! As you might have read from my last post which you can find here, I visited Korea over winter break and it was amazing!!!! I love food so much and I was so excited for the cuisine on our trip and it didn't disappoint!! I thought a lot about how to organize this post because really more than half of my pictures from the trip were all of food. I have always loved Korean food and I was pleasantly surprised that the food in Korea was pretty similar to Korean food I've had in Texas. Of course the street food was totally new and probably my favorite part of the cuisine. I decided to organize this post by meals, street food, market foods, and then a kind of miscellaneous.

How I Curl My Medium-Length Hair!!!!

How I Curl My Medium-Length Hair!!!!

Hi friends!!! In this post I'm going to show you my favorite way to curl my hair at this length!! Hair is important to every girl and I feel like a good hair day just makes you feel so put together! You feel me?!  I've been curling my hair for almost as long as I can remember. I have straight hair, and I love my hair, but my issue is with the length it's at now, is it flips out at the end which totally drives me INSANE. Even when I straighten the ends, it doesn't stay put very long, so I've relied on curling my hair when I want it to look its best. This is how my hair's been curled in most of my Instagram pictures!!
