Instagram Diaries #2

I am finally home for the holidays – yay! It feels so good to be back with my family. After this crazy, non-stop whirlwind of a semester, I am looking forward to a relaxing two and half weeks of sleeping, eating homecooked meals, playing video games, catching up on TV shows, and obsessing over Pinterest. My journey home was a little…

Happy Birthday, XOXO, Amanda!

Wow!! Has it really been a year since I’ve started this blog? Time sure does fly. I regret that I didn’t have time to write more often, but hopefully that will change this next semester.

I know I’m not the only one obsessed with these adorable creatures, so I’ve put together a gift guide that will make the cat…

2011 Emmy Awards: Best Dressed

The Primetime Emmy Awards is one of my favorite award shows. Not because the show itself is anything special – it was actually a bit of a snoozefest this year – but because I probably know and, thus, root for the nominees more than I do for, say, the Oscars or Grammys. Plus, I love seeing all my favorite TV…
