Here I am on the third day of September finally wrapping up August (I really am trying to get my life together guys).
We ate a slew of epic meals in Minneapolis that you can check out starting here.
I also made blueberry muffins, but I used a new recipe and it sucked. I’ll be going back to my standby from Brown Eyed Baker from now on.
I jumped on the choker bandwagon after being obsessed for months, and bought a gold one and a silver one from Forever 21. They are amazing.
I mastered the half-tuck with my J Crew white button down, paired with high waisted black pencil skirt.
I tied a button down (flannel) around my waist too many times this month. It instantly adds dimension to an outfit.
And I discovered one of my new favorite podcasts Fashion Friends.
I finished 6 books, not too shabby considering I started full fledged school in August.
Mockingjay ~Suzanne Collins
Unsigned Hype ~Booker T. Mattson
The Sign of the Beaver ~Elizabeth George Speare
The Call of the Wild ~Jack London
Johnny Tremain ~Esther Forbes
Start ~Jon Acuff
Favorite: Unsigned Hype it was extremely funny, and I will post a review in the upcoming weeks.
Least favorite: The Call of the Wild it didn’t really wow me, I had to read it for school though.
I listened to I’ll Make a Man Out of You from Mulan on repeat, that song is life. I listened to a lot of Alicia Keys: No One, Superwoman, New Day, Girl on Fire, her voice always gives me chills.
I discovered a newer song that I really love: Crush by Yuna featuring Usher. I saw the music video on TV and instantly loved Yuna’s voice and clothing style.
And on our roadtrip we listened to Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder, cause it ain’t a trip without MJ and Stevie.
I learned Hello by Adele on the piano this month and have been practicing often.
We went to Minneapolis
I started high school (wha?)
We watched Gifted Hands (Ben Carson movie)
I attended a study skills intensive
I saw a To Kill a Mockingbird play with one of my best friends
I started looking for scholarships
I’m ecstatic about the posts I have lined up for you all, stay tuned for some epic fashion inspired by songs, book reviews and trend discussions!
