A Letter To Myself & Life Update



These last few weeks have been hectic. To wrap-up my summer, I spent it "joyfully" packing for uni. Being someone who is notorious for overpacking/being extra prepared makes this part of the college experience quite the feat to manage. As quickly as that step came, it went, and now I'm at school. I'm live blogging this basically. Right now I'm taking a much needed break from organizing and decorating to do this. It's as though I finally have a chance to breathe after so many hours spent arranging and rearranging.

What's Black And Blue And Red All Over?

Answer: This pre-fall haul!

As promised in my last post, I have another (much smaller) haul for you all! I just could not resist picking up a bunch of autumnal pieces the other day when I was out shopping. As you all know, autumn is my favorite season for a variety of reasons; the fashion definitely being one of them. Finally that wave of warm clothing and colors has hit stores. Woo! My excitement cannot be contained. :)

BLACK

flats
chelsea boots

BLUE

RED

TJ Maxx

Since there are still 30 days until autumn, I will most likely be purchasing more clothing and beauty bits between now and then, so if you'd like I can try to make a pre-fall haul video?? Lemme know!

 Have you purchased anything for this coming fall? Also, can you believe that there are only 4 months left in 2015?!

▻Collective Summer Haul◅


At last this is uploaded! It's been a long time coming. I kept pushing this off, and when doing so my pile of purchases grew and grew. That left me with a lot to get through, so I figured a video would be the easiest way to show you the clothes, shoes, accessories, and makeup products I've bought these last few months. Plus, since I'm new to YouTube I wanted to try my hand at a haul video. I hope you like it!

Of course me being me, I've accumulated more after filming this video. Knowing that about myself, that's most likely why I procrastinated on making this in the first place because I wanted to include absolutely everything. There will be another smaller haul soon. However that one will take form as a post rather than a video. And it's all about autumn!! *is unbelievably happy that fall is just around the corner!*

What is your favorite piece from this haul? :)

Mug Cake

I was craving chocolate cake today, but was too lazy and impatient to make a proper one, so this happened...


Ingredients

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon canola/vegetable oil
3 tablespoons milk
handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon (or more depending on taste) cream cheese


Steps

1. Into a mug, mix all of the solids. *all-purpose flour, sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, salt*


2. Add the liquids and mix well. *egg, oil, milk*


3. Mix a handful of chocolate chips into the batter.


4. Drop a dollop of cream cheese in the center. Push it downward to get a filling effect.



5. Microwave for 2-5 minutes on high. 
I recommend checking the cake every minute to make sure it gets fully baked but not overdone to the point it starts drying out.

 

6. Enjoy your dessert!


Have a lovely day and stay fabulous! :)

Porcelain Print

Also known as China Plate Print/Wedgwood Print/Blue Antique Floral

This has been a favorite print of mine for as long as I can remember. I recall being at the beach one day when I was about five years old. There I was walking up and down the shore in search for little treasures. Whole shells, sea glass, and of course sand dollars were always a joy to find, but little did I know that one day I'd discover something completely new. On my quest I found three little pieces of white glass with a blue drawing on them. Straight away I ran to my mother asking questions a mile a minute. What is this from? Where is it from? Why is there a picture on it? She answered all of my questions about these three little pieces. I'd like to think that when curiously examining these plate pieces is when I fell in love with this delicate print.

From then on whenever I'm at a store and see something with the porcelain pattern, I get really excited and always gush about how pretty it is to whoever I'm with. The excitement is only heightened when it's something other than a plate with this print. I absolutely love when inspiration is taken from mundane things and applied to a completely different form. This happened the other day when I went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond with my mother. I saw the most beautiful bedding with this print and that's what sparked me to make up this wishlist.

It only makes sense that this lovely blue and white antique design would look good on more than just a plate. With its pristine and exquisite details it surely adds a touch of femininity to any piece. Your eye can't help but be drawn in.


Are you as head over heels with this print as I am? Which is your favorite piece?
