just to clear the air,

to those you just had to comment
and couldn't just assume for yourselves.

thanks for being super sensitive and commenting anonymously..

yes, jeff did leave on a mission.
but no he currently isn't on one now.
he came home.

he's still an amazing kid, don't be quick to judge.
because i'm sure 80% of you just did.
before you start making the typical utah assumptions that come up, go through the experience with a close friend or family member, then you can understand.

sorry to be so harsh.
it's a little touchy subject for me right now.

lower bowl tickets to the jazz game.

they won.
awesome game.

I was pretty stoked when I saw lauren conrads ombre nails.

so cool right?
my thought process was, I have a million bottles of nail polish, why don't I try it?
I kind of had a variety of pinks and purples, and the purples looked the most gradient.

now I'm trying to blame my camera but..
yeah they don't look so ombre in the picture but I promise, my nails look pretty sweet.
maybe they'll look better with the pinks..

pillow crafter.

so a while ago I posted about possibly making my own duvet cover.
for christmas, I received a down comforter from my parents.
and now my sweet grandma is helping me make this one

we're about halfway done.
pictures to come soon.

I wanted to spiff up my bed a bit more and I stumbled across these pillows on pinterest

so I got a little crafty and made a couple of my own versions.
be warned, they definitely don't look as cute as those are obviously.

so the first one i made was the striped one.

I made mine from an old grey and white t-shirt I had

and the other was a bow one that I made from some mint green scrap fabric I had

end result

I'm pretty satisfied.
it took a lot of work and my seam ripper was my best friend for sure.

another cute pillow ideas?

these days are the ones i live for.

Friday, January 20, 2012

indeed, i agree.
anthony is my favorite by far now on project runway
and this last episode i loved that quote
and i also loved his dress.

quite stunning.
i'm very surprised he wasn't in the top.

Sometimes I have a three hour break in between classes,
with a serious case of the girl pains.
So I decide to crawl into my dad's lifted blazer with tinted windows and the spacious backseat,
and take a quick nap.

No big deal.

a strong, innate desire to rove or travel about.

Monday, January 9, 2012

oh i'm a college girl now by the way.
it's about time.
i've been out of school for way too long.

on mondays and wednesdays i have classes from 8:00 am to 5:15 pm.
a couple breaks in between.
but still, it's a long time.

i'm really mad that when i was looking at colleges in high school, i just automatically ruled out utah valley university.
i really regret that because i love this place.
not too shabby.
now if only i could get an apartment...

BCS college football championship!
who are you rooting for?
i personally just want alabama, because i always go for the underdog for some reason.

more all stars?

first america's next top model did their all star season,

now project runway?
could life get much better?

they are pretty excellent if i do say so myself.

i was pretty excited to watch the season premiere only to find out there were a few disappointments.

a different host.
yes my friends, no heidi klum. it just was not at all the same hearing the same words from an american supermodel i never even heard of. i was missing that german accent and especially the "coming up on pwoject wunway".

different judges.
no nina, no michael. although i am pretty pleased to hear from isaac mizrahi.

and worst of all
a different mentor.
the best part of project runway, tim gunn, is. not. there. the catch phrase of project runway. make it work. it isn't said once. it really is a giant disappointment since i have a great love for tim. however, i will say that joanna coles has great insight into the fashion industry and will have a great opinion.
this should be a hoot.

especially from anthony.

19 years and counting

my birthday was..

six hours of shopping,
two of those hours were spent in sephora.
mint chocolate chip ice cream cake
and watching a little bit of james dean under the arm of my gentleman.

here's a little wardrobe wednesday (i know it's tuesday, give me a break)
birthday style
blouse: nordstrom, skirt: H&M, tights:gift, shoes: urban outfitters
and i finally got my very own mug.

fancy my watch?
this amazing boy gave it to me

he also gave me the tights i'm wearing above and a six pack of diet coke that i drank from my fancy mug
he's truly a keeper.

cheers to being nineteen.
