Lilly Lovin'

There's nothing better than putting on these incredibly cozy Lilly sweats after a long day at school! With temperatures down below freezing, I don't know what I would do without them!

Winter Blues

What better way to get excited for spring than by dressing for it and pretending it's already here? (Note: After a series of trial and error, it was discovered that this only works indoors.) Aren't Northeastern winters the best?

DIY of the Day

I stumbled upon this idea on Pinterest, and I just HAD to try it right away! I was pretty skeptical at first. The thought of glitter so close to the USB holes in my iPhone and laptop freaked me out a little, but it turned out great! The nail polish totally holds it all together. I used my one of my favorite polishes of all time, Milani "Disco Lights." I highly recommend this brand if you want to try this yourself. If the polish were a little thinner and less able to retain the glitter, you might have to worry about shedding, which could harm your phone/computer (I tell you this from experience. I fried an MP3 player when I was younger by "decorating" it with glitter.). A top coat of clear polish could fix that, though!

Put A (Gorgeously Detailed) Ring On It

C Wonder-ful

Someday, when I get my own apartment, EVERYTHING will come from C Wonder.

When I first heard about it, I have to admit that I was a bit wary. It seemed way too much like a "Tory Burch for Target", you know? Everything changed as soon as I walked into the store for the first time a few weeks ago. I have been totally converted. C Wonder emblematizes everything I loved about the "old" Tory. The bright colors, simple-yet-dazzling patterns, and animated store atmosphere were what originally attracted my attention to Tory Burch, but her brand (see "empire") seems to have lost all that in the shuffle of high fashion. No worries, though, fellow mourners, C Wonder has adopted all of these spectacular attributes- and they have a home decor collection!

All in all, my favorite item in the whole store HAD to be this gorgeous necklace. If anyone would like to buy it for me for my birthday, let's just say I wouldn't be entirely opposed to the idea. (My favorite color is turquoise.)
