41 days to Christmas!

I’m feeling very festive lately, I’ve been loving going places and seeing Christmas decorations, and hearing Christmas music in all the stores. So I’ve started my Christmas countdown, there is exactly 41 days and if you count it from this exact moment (7:09pm) there is 2 hours and 51 minuets! I really want to decorate our dorm room for Christmas, so I thought I’d post up some inspirational pictures. :)



I love love love this cupcake Christmas ornament from


Our neighbors in our dorm a couple doors down have a pink Christmas tree up, I want this blue one.

christmas cookies

Christmas cookies! I am really excited to make Christmas cookies! I think I am going to cheat here pretty soon and just go buy pre-made sugar cookie dough, so I can decorate cookies.

While making this blog I pauses to look for Christmas counters and I found the Mickey and Minnie Mouse one I put at the top of the page. I know it honestly doesn’t go with the page at all but, I do love Mickey and Minnie, it makes me want to watch all the Once Upon A Christmas Disney movies. :) I think when I go home for Thanksgiving I’m going to have to grab all of my Disney Christmas movies and bring them back to my dorm to watch.

Procrastination, no more.

No more right after this post :)

So, college is by far the hardest thing I have ever done, high school I would say doesn’t prepare you for it at all. Elementary school I think did a better job getting us ready for college by showing us how to read, write, and add together numbers. After that the rest of our K-12 years were just a waste of time it seems.

However, I must admit that I have only been doing a slight bit more studying in college than I did in high school and I feel like that is where I am going wrong. So For about the next 30 days or so I am going to try an experiment where I every morning (or the night before) I plan out my day by the hour so I can give myself the right amount of study time I need for each class, and I am going to do something really weird… I am going to give myself a bed time. Yes, a bed time. So I can actually wake up in the morning with energy and not with the burning desire to hit my snooze button again, and again and again.

I realize that I should’ve started this idea sooner but, I also realize that I am a freshman and its better that I start this now then never. So, I just thought I’d share this little bit of information since I haven’t blogged in literally a million years.

I am now going to end this procrastination and get back to studying for my midterm now. ;)

I <3 Post Secrets


changetheworld-1dorthyfairy    youareloved

I really like Post Secrets I bought one of the books a few years ago from Urban Outfitters and there are a few in it that every time I read them I cry. I tried writing some of my own down once, but I ended up throwing them away… I think that means I fail. I really like these ones though, and I think it would be fun to make the bottom one and go around to different dorms sliding them under people’s doors. I think I will.

The actual Post Secret website can be found here:

My first week of school is officially over!

I only had two classes today and they are all over with now! So the first week didn’t seem to be to bad. Only got lost a handful of times trying to get to classes, and I didn’t want to seem like a total and utter freshman by pulling out my map every now and then, but I did it anyways! Only one of my classes was really what I call “hidden”. However, I find that if you walk into classes five minuets late than its easier to make conversation with whomever has an empty seat next to them.

I feel like nearly all of my classes are just repeating high school, especially my biology 101 class and my chemistry class (sort of), I don’t think you can count what my high school chemistry teacher did as actually teaching the class. So far all my teachers are pretty laid back only one of them wants to go by Mr.. So and So, all the others are on the first name bases. They say that the 12 years of school leading up to college were to prepare us for college, however, I am pretty sure you’d get into quite a bit of trouble by calling your teacher by their first name back in the day.

Dorm living isn’t as bad or as great as I thought it would be. Its cool(ish) during the day if you know how to get your room tempature down and way to stinking hot at night!

I really do love being in a place where everyone looks so different and has so many different styles. In Hermiston, there are really like two styles, normal and weird it seems and here people are just who they want to be. I love it. I spent to many years in high school wondering if people thought what I was wearing or how I did my hair was weird and I’d say about 60% thought I was weird and the other 40% thought I was ok. Its ok though, since I found about 70% of them being people whom I wanted nothing to do with in the first place.

Anyways, I got an IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) placement meeting tonight and try outs for the team on Sunday! I am super duper excited. There were quite a lot of girls and a few boys at the informational meeting the other day but, I’d classify about half of them as horse “enthusiast” and not people who are real knowledgeable about horses and showing. So this weekend should be interesting.

Oh! I gave my blog a make-over! Do you like it?

How is everyone else’s first weeks of school going?

Life As I know It.

So I’ve been in college now for about week and a day and in all honesty just like I’m going to assume a lot of new freshman are I miss home a lot. At the same time I’m all excited and what not to be away from home and not having to tell my parents what I am doing every minuet of everyday, but I almost kind of miss that too. Wait, not really. I miss my parents and my sister, a few select friends who actually really care about me and I really miss my animals!

This is Sparkle my pretty lady, who I miss very much!


However, I am really looking forward to all the OS equestrian team stuff to get started! I am so ready to be riding a lot and to be apart of a team again. I miss playing soccer and being with all my soccer girls mucho.

Note: So I understand that lately all of my pictures that I have been posting are super crappy, this is all due to the fact that I am using my Blackberry to take pictures with lately. I did get a new digital camera before coming to school, however I still don’t have a memory card quite yet. As soon as I do I will be posting more pictures of around campus and of my dorm room! Which still isn’t finished being decorated yet! We haven’t had time to go shopping for a few things yet, but hopefully soon!!


If your one of my close friends reading this blog back home, know that I miss you all very much! Especially Jordan, Deidre, Kember, and all my other friends who went off to different schools who I won’t see till break!

The Beautiful People.



This just might be the cutest look I have ever seen on ever! Her outfit is absolutely adorable! Very porcelain doll like and the fact that she has the animated character in her hand makes this picture even cuter. I want this outfit immediately! I’m going to have to attempt to put something like this together! When I have time and money of course :)





Which look is your favorite??

Zombie Tag Blog Style.

Last night some friends and I had a failed attempt at playing Zombie Tag in a local park, which ended in just playing normal tag. However, it seems that I still wound up being "it" through my friends at "Who Does She Think She Is, Madonna?" They tagged me to fill out this questionnaire, so here I go!
1. Why did you start blogging:
I origionally started blogging to just put my thoughts down, a journal of sorts without pen and paper. I'm a much faster typer, but then I decided to write down my happenings as I started getting ready for college and decided to start this blog. Where I just blog about whatever I feel like. So basically, I started blogging because I thought it was a good idea and wanted to share anything and everything with others.

2.Do you prefer Spring/Summer or Autumn/Winter?
I love Autumn and Winter the most! I love layering clothes and wearing tights and cute sweaters and I just love the cooler weather. I hate hot weather with a passion.
3. What did you notice first: Smokey eye makeup or bright lips?
I'm a huge fan of bright red lipstick, but I wore a smokey eye forever it seemed. So I am going to go with the smokey eye, but red lips are a very close second.
4. Who are your style icons?
Zooey Deschanel, I love her vintage chic style and her to die for always perfectly messy hair!
5. Describe your personality in 3 words.
Sarcastic, Caring, and outgoing. Oh, and I'm a classy one :)
7. Which era do you think influenced fashion the most?
40's-60's is in my opinion the best years of fashion. I love 50's mod. My style varies by day, but I almost always have some form of 60's jewelry mingled in.
8. What beauty item do you always repurchase?
Ivory, Cover Girl cover up.
So now I am suppose to tage a few people:

The Beautiful People.







Sticking with the mood of all things fashionable, I love my new little dress from Forever21!

Baking, Baking.

So I find that I’ve been baking quite a bit over this past week.


My Smores Cupcakes before they were frosted.


Frosted in chocolate ganache. Made these for my uncles 27th birthday.61699_468035701843_533536843_6659245_5140100_n61320_466222081843_533536843_6615814_461912_n

Sorry about the quality of my photos, my Blackberry doesn’t always capture how beautiful something really is.

My Thoughts On… The MTV Video Music Awards.

I think that in order to really put your name in from of the words “Video Music Awards”, your channel should really show music videos. Not marathons of Teen Mom, and why are most of the “Teen Moms” from Ohio? Are there no pregnant girls in Oregon? Anyways…

To me the VMA’s were a night of awkwardness, oddities, and poor fashion choices. The best fashion of the night I would say goes to Lady Gaga of course, and her thanks to the late Alexander McQueen was touching, where will her awesome shoes come from now with him gone?




If I could only see the top of Lady Gaga’s head in a swimming pool, I’d think some new breed of odd shark was coming to eat me…


I’m not to sure about my feelings about this meat dress, I feel like its like a serial killers fantasy or something like that,. but I’m really excited by the fact that Cher is in this picture, her hair looks wonderful!


Personally I thought the best performance of the night went to B. o B, and Hayley Williams, Airplanes is a beautiful song and both singers were actually into the performance. Unlike Rhianna and Eminem, Rhianna stood there awkwardly like a Zombie in a dooms day inspired outfit with bright pink hair, she looked like my gaming character from Fallout 3. While I love Eminem, Rhianna made the performance painful to watch and it got even more awkward with their very staged back to back ending that made you think you were watching a 5th grade talent show.





I adored Katy Perry’s dress and love her new “rainbow” hair, I’m thinking that upon moving to college I should try this :)

While some things about the night were rather ok, some rather awhile, others were rather pathetic, Taylor Swift’s forgiveness song to Kanye West was rather pathetic and Kanye West’s ending performance left this viewer wondering why the hell they would allow for Kanye to wrap the show up, when the few other good performers could’ve ended the show with a bang. Instead we all just turned off our television sets when Kanye took the stage. Way to keep viewers engaged MTV.
