1. This Giveaway // Southernly Stated

Um, I'm sorry but I don't think trash tanks come any cuter.
Trash Tanks:: you heard it here.
Why are they called that?
No one knows... I just know that errrybody at my school does so I'm hoppin' on the bandwagon.
PS I want/need/have to have that first one.
2. Favorite Steal of the Summer
I love J.Crew umbrellas but I've had the same cheetah print one (notice a pattern?) since high school and it was time for a new one.
Well, this baby was on sale plus an additional 30% off plus my college discount of 15% AKA
the umbrella was like 7 bucks.
SEVEN. 
Normally those umbrellas run close to $35-$40 dollars.
Yes please.
3. Favorite Cleanse
via pinterest
I did Jillian Michael's detox/cleanse & I did lose the weight!
Granted, it was water weight but I just felt better and had more energy.
The Recipe (drink this EVERY day for 7 days)::
60 oz. of distilled water
1 bag of dandelion root tea
1 TBS of sugar free cranberry juice
2 TBS of lemon juice (I used the bottled kind.)
Stir and drink-- I prefer it over ice. 
4. Favorite DIY
via pinterest
I bought everything I need to make this cute tray--I just have to sit down and do it.
Instead of the pink, I am using a turquoise monogram.
As soon as I complete this project, I will be writing a how-to post on it so stay tuned.
::ALSO if anyone has any advice as to what color scheme I should use in my apartment please let me know:: 
I am at a loss.
I have dark brown/tan bedding... what colors should I use for pillows/accents on the wall?

  1. I love those tanks! That DIY looks so fun, easy and cute! I'm looking forward to your post on it and to see how you do your monogram! I think with dark brown/tan bedding, I might pair pink or baby blue! Or just do beige/cream/neutrals. That might be boring, but you could add pops of color in framed prints or big wooden monogram on the wall!

    1. Yes I did! I maybe didn't splurge as much on sweets. I loooove me some Larabars (esp. chocolate chip cookie dough) Not at all! Sugar Free Cranberry juice is hard to find so I used no sugar added. You should !!!!
