Just wanted to post a little reminder to all my fellow bloggers.. This past weekend while my step-mom was at church her car was broken into and her purse was stolen. Her car window was broken and they took her entire purse and another bag of stuff. Although no one was injured and all the purchases made using her card will be refunded, it's more of an inconvenience trying to get copies of everything again and that feeling of your privacy being violated. I don't want this to happen to anyone else so I just wanted to remind everyone not to leave anything of value in their car that is in plain sight to anyone! Hope every had a wonderful weekend and a fabulous Monday!

This weekend I am going home to see my family for a few days before spring break and I am SO excited because I haven't been home in about 7 weeks which is a really long time for me! I have no set plans except to relax and enjoy being around my sisters and my parents and all the animals we have running around :)

I hope everyone else has a relaxing weekend spent with people they love!

Style Icon: Lauren Conrad

I have loved Lauren Conrad since Laguna Beach premiered on MTV back in 2004. She has always seemed like the most "real" person on reality TV and she is easy to relate to. Her style has definitely evolved since those Laguna Beach days to more sophisticated chic. I actually had the opportunity to attend one of her book signings last year and she looks just as gorgeous in person as she does on television. You can read about that here. Here are some of my favorite looks:

I chose a new font to try for my blog... please leave a comment here on whether or not you like it or if you can even read it? I would love your input!

What I've Been Doing

I took a break from blogging because I wasn't feeling inspired by anything lately and it feels nice to get back to my blog :) This past week was busy with school and work and I've also been sick all week/weekend so I've been resting a lot and trying to do anything possible to make myself feel better! The weather has finally warmed up and it feels absolutely amazing outside. It's still not hot but it is way better than 30 degrees.

I have noticed some new followers and I am excited that you have found my blog! Sorry for the absence but I will be brainstorming posts tonight and I hope you will enjoy them!

Spring Break is right around the corner and in just twelve days B and I will be going to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands with his parents for a week-long vacation! I am SO excited that I may already have my bag packed.. just kidding, but not really!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!

First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's day! I apologize for not posting on here in a few days. Lately I've been really busy and I've kind of forgotten that I had a blog and I have kind of been lacking inspiration and motivation to post anything. So I think I am going to take a temporary break from blogging, just until I find my inspiration again. I have been reading everyone else's blogs and will continue to do so because I love all of them! I hope everyone has a great day!

I love watches. I think they are a great statement piece and the bigger the watch the better. Sometimes I steal/borrow my boyfriend's watches and wear them. One of my favorite watch brands is Nixon because they offer such a unique style to each of their watches. I have several of their watches and some of my favorites are featured below.
These are a few of my favorite watches:


Michael Kors Crystal Rim bracelet watch $180
MARC by MARC Jacobs oversized watch $200
Michael Kors 'Bel Aire Chronograph' $250

Nixon Rayna watch $160
Nixon Capital watch $200
Nixon Shutter watch $190

Hugo Boss silver dial watch $431
Nixon 51-30 watch $400
U.S. Polo Assn. black dial bracelet watch $22

How do you feel about watches? Are they something you wear everyday?

If I could be anywhere in the world right now I would choose to be here:

and I would be wearing this (or something similar):

and I would be drinking several of these:

But instead I am stuck inside studying anatomy until my brain explodes with knowledge.. Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Four Years

Today is mine and B's four year anniversary. We met January 15, 2007 when some friends and I went to Wilmington to shop for a day. One of my very good high school friends is from Wilmington and was dating B's brother T at the time and introduced us that day. Ever since then we've been together and "officially" started dating February 1, 2007. In some ways it's hard to believe that we have made it this long and survived college and all of the ups and downs. But in other ways, I couldn't imagine things being any other way. Here are a few pictures from over the years:
