Crunch Time

You know exactly what I mean don’t you.

It’s that time again, the time every college student dreads, finals! Honestly this is probably one of my easiest since freshman year, but it probably just feels that way. I am excited to be finished with this semester because next semester all my classes pertain to my major and not to mention my internship! Which is near to the Topshop Manhattan store… yup my wallet is in trouble.

I don’t talk much about honeymoons on here because well, if I plan weddings I don’t have much to do with the honeymoon, so what do I do? Dream about mine of course. Now after typing the word two times, I am dying to know where it comes from, it is a rather funny word. I did some research and by research I mean I looked up in Wikipedia the etymology of the word “honeymoon”. It comes from a tradition where the Indian elite would do a bridal tour after their marriage.

Interesting! Well, if any of you know me I often say my next adventure across the Atlantic would be to Iceland. I think it is so amazing and beautiful. If you don’t believe me just look at these honeymoon shots from OMG I’m Getting Married.

That view is to die for! I could just imagine how pretty it looks in real life. You have to check out the other pictures, while I’m not loving her hair, her use of teal shoes is awesome, definitely one of my favorite colors!

I really wanted to show you a picture of my Christmas tree in my room but last night it toppled over and it broke 4 ornaments! I was super bummed especially since I had to clean it up, but hopefully I will upload some images of it in a couple of days! I also have an exciting how-to (yay crafts) for you guys too in the upcoming weeks! This is one of my favorite times of the year! What are your plans for the winter? Do you have any exciting traditions?



Make a Statement

Happy Monday!

Even though I’m pretty sure that’s an oxymornon.

Was your weekend filled with copious amounts of homework like mine? Luckily the weeks have seem to be flying by and I’m just one step closer to busting out in the real world. Dressing this morning seemed to be an extra difficult task, and I felt the need for some pizazz, I think it’s only appropriate for a Monday. So I put on my $12 bracelet from Target I got ages ago, it doesn’t take much to spice up a simple outfit!

Recently I’ve seen on the wedding blogs and in the more nontraditional weddings brides with awesome statement necklaces. Melissa from The Loveliest Day featured some brides rocking the trend. I think it is be a great way for women who really express themselves. The photo’s are pretty gorgeous too!

I decided to do some procrastinating online shopping this weekend for some statement pieces on the cheap. I need to bulk up my costume jewelery collection if every Monday is going to feel like this.

Hubba hubba! This necklace from Topshop is a steal at $30 and also can count as your something blue!

I really like this one from Forever 21 however not a huge fan of the quality of jewelry from Forever, but what can you expect much more for $5.80?

Ooo Sparkley! This Urban Outfitters rhinestone mesh bib is beautiful! I wish I had an event lovely enough to wear it to, definitely adding it to my wishlist! Pretty good deal at $34.00.

Now that I have successfully put off my homework long enough, I must get going and be productive! Do you have a favorite place for costume jewelry or do you only wear the real thing?
