Block seven, house number one. This is where me and my three best friends will spend our junior year of college. These past few weeks have been filled with laughter, music blasting, some schoolwork being done, and of course decorating. Since this was my third year moving onto campus, I was more excited than nervous. Every year it becomes easier and easier and I owe it all to Bed Bath& Beyond. Thanks to Bed Bath & Beyond’s college checklist college shopping was stress free and more fun this year. The checklist had all the essentials from Twin XL sheets, stylish comforters, lamps, décor, dorm appropriate kitchen essentials, all making this year’s back to college shopping a little less overwhelming. For the most part, my back to college shopping was done in one day with the help of their checklist and a personal shopper to guide me through the enormous back to school section at Bed Bath & Beyond.          My friends and I are obsessed with our townhouse. Our Bed Bath & Beyond items really makes our place feel like home. We love our house so much that we want to share our house with the blogging world. I was…

If you were in hibernation this past week or living under a rock, let me give you a recap of one of the biggest events in the fashion industry, New York Fashion Week. This year, New York Fashion week began on Thursday, September 10 and ended the following Thursday, September 17. Throughout the week, designers featured their Spring and Summer 2016 collections. I find it fascinating that autumn hasn’t even begun and we are already focused on spring and summer 2016. I wish I was able to post a recap everyday during Fashion Week, but being a full time college student, I had other duties to fulfill. So I decided to do one big recap about my favorite shows and designers. Who cares if it is one week late because the great shows certainly made an impact that will last for days, weeks, and months. Here are a few of my highlights from New York Fashion Week:  Tommy Hilfiger: Tommy Hilfiger never fails to impress. While reviewing his Spring/Summer 2016 collection, I was inspired to skip class, hop on a jet, and travel somewhere tropical. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. His island inspired line featured boho inspired printed dresses, crochet tops,…

Boring outfits are so last season. I love taking simple pieces and adding fun accessories turning my outfit from drab to fab. Today’s post highlights my new colorful bag from Upcycled Styles. My embellished cross body bag causes heads to turn and it never fails to get people inquiring as to where I found such a unique item. The answer is Upcycled Styles. This registered Thai company upholds and follows a Fair Labor and Child Labor policy. Upcycled Styles strives to promote ethical working conditions to make sure each of their workers have access to life essentials and education to succeed in life. Upcycled Styles works closely with the Hill Tribes of Northern Thailand and showcases these artisans’ talents and creativity. I found out that my bag was made by a group of ten gifted women. All of them added their personal touch to my bag and I couldn’t be more proud to wear it. I enjoy wearing this bag knowing that not only does it look good, but I am doing good promoting a company that practices fair work practices. The colors, pattern, and fringe give this purse a boho vibe, which we all know is my favorite style.…

Who needs a boyfriend when you have a pair of fabulous jeans? Sadly, there’s no man in my life; however, I am in a committed relationship with my new boyfriend jeans from Madewell. It wasn’t until recently, I jumped on the boyfriend jeans bandwagon. It seems like the skinny jean trend has died out. Now all the buzz is about slouchy, shapeless jeans. Every time I try on a pair of boyfriend jeans, I feel stupid and out of place; however that changed when I took a risk and bought a pair of boyfriend jeans. It has taken some time for me to get use to the fit because I have been so use to tight fitting jeans. Now that I am use to boyfriend jeans, I am obsessed with the loose, comfy fit. Best part about boyfriend jeans is they are so easy to style. One pair of boyfriend jeans can create several outfits. I have seen these jeans paired with blazers, t-shirts, wedges, boots, sneakers, stilettos, and so on. I love the look of my Madewell boyfriend jeans. I think the distressed design gives my jeans a laidback look. Hands down, Madewell has the best jeans and that…

Who knew that three words could cause so much anxiety…back to school. Although summer has not officially ended on the calendar, my summer ended when I walked into my first class. From elementary school to middle school to high school and now college, I always experience back to school jitters, especially the night before classes start. College is a different experience because I find you don’t need many school supplies. In elementary school you needed markers, crayons, glue sticks, and much more. In high school you needed a binder and notebook for every subject. Luckily, I only take five classes in college and most of them allow us to use our laptops for note taking. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t need any school supplies. I found all of my back to school essentials at Office Depot and OfficeMax stores and online at officedepot.com. Their brick-and-mortar store and online shop offered all the supplies I needed to gear up for my junior year of college. Office Depot and OfficeMax had a huge variety of supplies, allowing students to pick items that fit their styles and needs at prices they will love. In this post, I am giving tips on how…
