You can tell me later how creative this blog post title is.
I already know.
First things first, I am so excited to announce The Frat Collection giveaway winner...
(p.s. thank you to all who entered be ready for another giveaway starting soon!)
Congrats Ali!
Ya'll, this girl is precious and so is her blog.
So pop on over there and check it out.
On a different note, a lot of ya'll commented about my oatmeal + my wall.
I'm not exactly sure how it ended up on the wall.
It slipped from my hands... maybe took a little tumble off the chair and boom. 
Splattered.all.over.my.wall.
It's disgusting and it was 6:30 a.m. so I wasn't even a fully functioning human yet.
You know how it is.
ALSO, I was gifted this beaut and I cannot stop using it.

Does anyone else have the Urban Decay Naked Palette?

It's OK Thursday.

I promise I will be back to regular posting after this crazy week is o-v-e-r.
Today, I'm linking up with Amber and Neely
for 'It's OK Thursday.'
Its Ok Thursdays
It's ok...

...to drop your oatmeal and spill it all over the wall--especially if you had just woken up
...to want to punch 'that guy' in your class for always having something to say
...to drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte every day of the week 
...to not wear pants in your apartment
...to take a nap instead of doing something productive
...to watch Honey Boo Boo
...to be counting down the days until a break from school
...to think you're never going to graduate
...spend money you don't have on clothes. #fallfashion

What I'm Loving Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday!
Today, I'm linking up with Jamie over at This Kind of Love
for What I'm Loving Wednesday.
Little side note:: It's September 26. WHERE in the world did September go ya'll?
I cannot believe it's almost October but PTL because that means fall break.
Here's what I'm loving lately
I'm loving the beautiful fall weather. 
I'm loving the fact that the Carrie Underwood/Hunter Hayes concert was ahhhmazing plus Brad Paisley showed up for a surprise visit.
I'm loving my Starbucks gold card--finally.
I'm loving my new drink at Starbucks for a quick pick-me-up.
AKA the John Wayne-- it's a shot of espresso/vanilla/other good things that comes in a tiny baby cup. 
It's hot and cold at the same time and amazing. TRY IT
I'm loving that everything now comes in 'pumpkin' flavor. It's fall ya'll.
I'm loving when my friends send me funny pictures.

I'm loving football season.
I'm loving my Frat Collection GIVEAWAY here.

What are ya'll loving?

I Believe In...

Hey ya'll!
Erin over at Living in Yellow is having a link-up and this girl is joining in.
It's about we believe in--get ready 'cause I'm about to tell ya.

I believe in God.

I believe in laughter...the kind that comes straight from your stomach and makes you cry sometimes.
That kind.
I believe in yoga pants....every day.

I believe that eating an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Alright, maybe that's a myth but I love me some apples.

I believe in silly things...and watching your favorite trash reality TV show.


Disclaimer: I most certainly do not believe in dear Honey Boo Boo.

I believe in Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latt├ęs. 

I believe in not taking moments for granted.
I believe in true love.

I believe in going to bed at 11. 

I believe in never giving up on what you want.

I believe in being a cat lady. WHY does no one like cats?!
I believe that fall is the best dang season of the year.

I believe in the statement that "this too shall pass..."
I believe in M&Ms of any kind.

I believe making memories.

I believe on making sure you don't look back on a life of 'what ifs.'

I believe in country music and I sure do believe in Luke Bryan.
Last but not least, I believe in a good freakin' giveaway.
So check out my Friday post.
This list could go on for days.
What do ya'll believe in?

Outfits...and random stuff in my brain

Who wants to see some really low-quality iPhone OOTDs?
I knew it.
You don't have to ask twice.
I have this philosophy about getting ready for the day...
I mean, what more is there to say?
So here are my days of 'looking good.'
Or not, ya'll be the judge.
First day of school picture with my roommate.
I dyed my hair. Not super drastic but darker for the fall...Shooting for this look:

This was for a 'preppy' party.
Nothing says prep like hot pink Sperry's...am I right?
Tunic: J.Crew
Jeans: GAP
Shirt: Forever 21
Skirt: J.Crew
Boots: Steve Madden
Pink Jeans: Old Navy
Sweater: LOFT
Shoes: Francesca's 
Shirt: Old Navy
Jeans: Seven for all Mankind
Boots: Steve Madden
And that concludes my grainy, blurry, pictures shown in the mirror that fell off my door.
I mean...it's fine.
One last thing...It's football season AKA my favorite time of the year.
I'll be rooting for my Kentucky Wildcats (we're bad...I know.)
Nothing says have a great day like an e-card.
For your viewing pleasure...
ALSO
I'm hosting another giveaway ya'll!
Get excited...Here's a hint--it's one of the shirt companies I posted about this summer...

Blog Hiatus.

Wow, I am not even sure where to start.
Well, let's just say that Recruitment got the best of me in every way.
I was in charge of one of our nights and I was on-the-go 24/7.
Ladies, if you have been/are in a sorority--you know what I'm talking about.
Anyway, now that my life is back to normal 
annnnnnd now that we have some awesome new little ones.
I can now blog on a regular basis without disappearing. 
I'll start with what's been going on recently...
I baked these to.die.for brownie/cookie/oreo bars for a fraternity on campus.
Oh my gosh.
I got the recipe from Pinterest HERE.
Basically all you do is start with a muffin tin and fill the tin with cookie dough first, then an oreo (or Reese cup) then brownie batter and bake.
Holy deliciousness. 
Also, can we talk about this for a second::
Honey Boo Boo Child + Mother.
Do ya'll watch the show?
I try not to but it's hard to look away sometimes.
I mean, is that even real life?!
And so this post doesn't end on a horrific note...
Guess what's baaaaack.
via google
My favorite time of the year is fast approaching!
And I may/may not have already had like six of these.
No shame.
