Today I Adore Organization.

Hey everybody!

Well I am still going crazy with mid-term assignments, projects and tests... soo sorry for the neglect. Last week I was working on a filing system project. 16 main file folders -> 100 manila folders dispersed throughout -> over 100 Resources in the manila folders. And I am such a nerd because as I was organizing all of this I was having way to much fun. So in honor of my love for organization and Pinterest I am sharing with you my top 3 pins off of my Organization board. Perhaps some good ideas for you?

Organizing Your Purses on a rod so they don't get awful creases in them! Genius.

Using old wipe containers to store those plastics bags you need but Hate to have floating around.

Using clothing storage for Ribbons & Craft supply storage.

Well hope I got some good ideas buzzing in your brains. Sorry for my flakiness ladies but I promise things will settle down soon!

Is it Midterms or is it Just Me?

Hey guys, well this week seems crazy and stressful and I am not feeling at my best so the blog has been put on the back burner for right now. But I did want you to all know that I am actually still alive and I am still "blogging". 

I was looking at some other blogs last week and I found myself getting down on myself because everyone looked so great. Reality Check: blog life is not all of real life. Then I thought I would hope my blog doesn't make anyone feel bad {not that I am ya know, that amazing}. The point of my blog is so that I can track what I wear and find what I like and what I don't like, what works on my body and what doesn't. I like looking at other peoples blogs and finding inspiration but sometimes I get caught up in that nasty bug of envy. So dear readers, I hope that when you look at my blog you are slightly amused and find some ideas for your own outfits. Don't ever feel bad because I guarantee you are all wonderful, amazing ladies {or gentlemen?}. I am just a normal person; I have grumpy days, fat days, happy days, silly days and a week {here & there} where I am completely stressed out and I wear my fat hoodie around like it's going out of style... which it is haha. 

Anyways, point is; You are beautiful & wonderful and don't let anyone else make you think otherwise, especially yourself! You guys are all great and I love all your wonderful comments. Have a great day!

P.S. I don't actually think it's midterms... which means I'm in trouble in a few weeks!

Today I Adore Compliments.

Hey guys! We made it to the middle of the week. So have you heard of Pinterest? It's wonderful. I found a picture this week and this girl was wearing red pants with a camel colored top and I thought it was gorgeous. I sat there sad because I have been searching for red pants but with zero results. But then :) I remembered I had this red skirt and I just purchased this top in Park City two weeks ago... and my outfit was born! Don't you love when that happens?

Top: GAP - $25.99
Skirt: Forever 21 - $8.90
Shoes: Report - $12.99
Belt: Old Navy - free {like 7 years ago!}
Bracelet: American Eagle Outfitters - $3.00
Necklace: Target - $7.99

So today I had several really nice compliments on my outfit from some totally random people and it made me so happy. It made me realize that I certainly need to make an extra effort to compliment people around me. Don't you find that even when you feel 100% confident in how you look/feel it is still an amazing feeling to get a compliment? Maybe I just thrive off of positive reinforcement too much haha. Anyways, I hope you all go out of your way to give someone a compliment this week and make them smile. You are all great!

Does anyone remember The Baby Sitters Club? I realized this outfit could be on one of their book covers! I was in love with BSC as a kid, I even made up my own club called Groovy Girls. I was the president and we had a vice pres and secretary. Each week after Achievement Days (my churches girls club) which is now a different name (that makes me feel old)... I think Activity Days? Anyways every week after Achievement Days me and all my friends would go into the Mothers Lounge in the bathroom and hold a meeting... we were so cool. Eventually it dissolved but I had big dreams as a ten year old. Did anyone else make "cool" clubs too?

Today I Adore Sunshine

So it`s snowing... and I know I`m from Canada and it snows there but every year at the first snow (especially when it`s this early) I feel like I should cry and crawl into hibernation! Perhaps it`s dramatic but it`s just how I feel and I can`t help it. So if you are somewhere warm today you better go soak up some rays and wear some sunglasses for me! Thanks all you lucky girls!

Black & Blue

Hey everyone! Meet my new skirt :) I bought this weekend for $8.50 at Forever 21 and I am super pumped about it... also the sheer blouse... Love. Anyways, I titled my post "black & blue" because Once Upon a Time I was in this amazing seminary class (the BEST ever) and we all had nicknames. My cousin and one of my best friends was in that class and she was nicknamed Black & Blue because she is tough and isn't afraid to get hurt or hurt someone else (I admire that about her). She is leaving a mission for our church in 6 weeks and I am going to miss her like crazy! We lived together for three years and I just can't imagine not having her around. So this for her :) Love you Britt!

Top: Old Navy - $15.00
Tee: GAP - $10.00
Skirt: Forever 21 - $8.50
Shoes: ALDO - gifted for my wedding :)

Have a wonderful day everyone! It`s rainy here so I finally get to wear some of my wonderful sweaters!! Tell me your favorite part about fall!
