Take every chance. Drop every fear.

>>>>My friend Jamie thought I might forget about Words for Wednesday while I was in NYC. That is not at all the case. Here’s your dose of inspiration/motivation/optimism for the day. All you need is a strong Christmas blend from Starbucks and you are good to go. Enjoy your Wednesday!

Ah la la la la life is wonderful…

>>>wonderful Thanksgiving: My mom decorated the Thanksgiving lunch table so cute I just had to share. We also started a new tradition of writing a little note to everyone at the table explaining why we are thankful for that person. Next to each plate was a little box/basket where all the notes were placed. So typical of my mom, so adorb. >>>WOnderful nyc: Couldn’t help but obsess over the beautiful color-changing lights at the Shops at Columbus Circle. The mall is right next door to where I’ll be interning so I can grab a cup of coffee and stare in awe. >>>Wonderful happiness!: Fueling the happiness fire by […]

Lust, thankfulness, sleepiness, inspiration.

Happy Holidays from ZARA Thanks to because i’m addicted for sharing pics from the Zara Holiday collection. >>>I’m currently sitting in the airport in a FEW different MINDSETS: In Zara lust.

The Good Life

>>>Fall quarter is officially over! I’m sitting at home with my two dogs at my feet and thinking about the fantastic times I’ve had the past eleven weeks. Two songs encompass how I feel about my life and my first quarter of senior year. I couldn’t help but jam to Good Life by OneRepublic: Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want. We’re young enough to say…Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight. Like this city is on fire tonight. This could really be a good life, a good, good life. AND The Good Life by Kanye West: I always had a passion for […]
