One Last Day of Summer Vacation

Today feels like my last day of real summer vacation…ever. I start my senior year of college on Tuesday and as I don’t know when I will be going back to school for graduate work, this is it. This is the last summer I know where I will be in the Fall. The life of an actor isn’t easy, but it sure is rewarding. I have butterflies in my stomach thinking about it right now. As my fabulous voice teacher reminded me earlier this week, “Life is not a rehearsal” and I am so ready to live every day this year like it’s my opening night. I typically settle for “good enough” when it comes to a lot of things, because a lot of people have put me down the last 3 years. But for some reason, I do still consider myself a happy person 100% of the time. The two words that scared me so much 4 years ago, as I began my final year of high school, “senior year”, now are full of so many new things. “Senior Year” means I can’t rely on school anymore, I have to make it in real life. It also means the future, and one I truly hope will be filled with some of the best people I’ve met in my life during college. But, it also is scary because I don’t know where I’m going to be ten months from now. I can hope, I can dream, but most importantly, I need to DO. My future is in my hands now, and I refuse to settle. So to everyone who bullied me, didn’t believe in me, left me behind, or even forgot about me, this year is for me, not you anymore. 

Until next time, xo.

Got to spend the day at my family’s beach house yesterday! It was so beautiful outside, a little hot, but it was lovely to spend the entire day at the water once again. Rockin my too cool for school (#nerd) Ray Bans and Lilly bikini!

DIY Ottoman

My roommate comes home to our apartment this week! But alas, that means I am sent back to the love seat in our living room (she’s 5’6”, I’m 5’1” you see). I had been wanting to get an ottoman for the living room anyway so I could stretch my legs out. But then being me, I wanted it to serve the dual purpose of storage as well. It’s perfect for storing out of season candles and holiday knick-knacks! 

I got this navy ottoman at Target ($19.99). 

Then I went to JoAnn Fabrics and picked out this fabric ($7.50) and just got a yard. I used a pillow from our living room as color/print inspiration. 

Lay out your fabric nice and smooth on a flat surface. If you have an upholster gun, fabulous! If not, a hand stapler will work. And if you’re really in a pinch and looking just to test out the fabric, duct tape! My mom loves to cheat this way so she can try out a new chair cover or recover the piano bench without committing to the new fabric 100%. 

Remember to pull the fabric tightly in order to give it a professional look. I fold it just like wrapping a present! 

And voila! They come in so many fun colors and it’s so easy to customize them to make your space unique. I chose the navy because it was neutral enough to fit into our space plus my friend Lauren said, “I’m pretty sure navy fits into your life anywhere” so I was sold! Plus you can’t beat the price! Until next time, xo.

2. Ray Ban Aviators 

3. DIY Lilly Clipboard (for directing at work and meetings at school)

4. Kate Spade Wallet

5. Bath and Body Works Fragrance Mist in Pomegranate Lemonade

6. Lilly Pencil Case

Fall Haul!

I have been dying for these high waisted colored jeans from Charlotte Russe (buy one, get one for $12.50. An awesome deal) plus it was $10 off a $50 purchase so I got this beautiful white and gold infinity scarf for free! I chose the black pair and this minty blue color for fun! I’ve also been looking for the perfect pair of leopard flats. I found these loafer style ones at Target last night and had to snatch them up. I can’t wait to wear them with a neutral outfit to spice up my normal preppy style.

You can’t go into a new season without a new decent! Bath and Body Works always has AWESOME sales and yesterday was no different. The Lemon Pomegranate is fresh and yummy, and it was buy 2 get one free! So I picked up the body scrub, shower gel, and mist (free!) and then the body lotion was on sale for $5! I love love love it all!

The only thing missing from my Fall “Must Haves” list is a new vest and a big cozy sweater (kimono style). If you have any suggestions, let me know! Until next time, xo.

Starting to become a bit devastated that summer is nearing it’s end, though I cannot wait to jump into fall shenanigans at school! How lucky am I? A spent in Canada with my boyfriend and friend, Mark! Look at those Falls. (It was SO hot. Very different from the last time I was here and they were frozen!)
