"She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."-Proverbs 31:25

Soak this in, ladies.

Summer Heat

Hello lovelies! As I have not been blogging all summer, I thought I might update you on a few things in my life. At the beginning of Summer, my family went to Disney World! Ah, yes...that place is quite magical, isn't it? I finally finished up my English Composition classes! I know each and every one of you is excited about that one. Every single morning, except weekends, I woke up to walk almost two miles with my mom! I found a new appreciation for French style with a fabulous new a copy because it is worth it (and I said so). Recently, my old roommate moved in to her new sorority dorm...we will both miss living with each other so much! I move in with my two new roommates to our apartment soon! I am looking forward to getting back on a normal schedule...not the studying...or walking in the blazing heat which sucks the air out of your lungs as soon as you walk outside. I cannot wait to find my own new adventures this year! This upcoming second year of college will be a great experience for me! Hopefully I can keep up with this blog more often, so stay tuned!

Beauty Girl

Check out one of my sister's contributions to BeautyGirlMag!

Also, any takers for writing an annotated bibliography?? Didn't think so...

I am possibly going to begin putting random money in a jar to save up for my much wanted Louis Vuitton...judgement free zone, guys.

"You're considered superficial and silly if you are interested in fashion, but I think you can be substantial and still be interested in frivolity."-Sofia Coppola

I get way too many strange looks when I tell people my major in college is Apparel Merchandising. For all you lovely people interested in fashion (or anything else, for that matter), don't listen to those people who bring you down. Do what you love. Love what you do. Enjoy every second of it, simply because it makes you happy. Be the best you can be at what you love, but also be smart about it.
Prove everyone wrong.

Too Many Caroline's

Well, well, well my pretties.
 It's been a while, but I've been living...who knew that could happen?!
So, I've been asked to blog by this girl...check her out! Her blog life is a little more interesting than mine...for now...
Today, I went to my first Chemistry class. The teacher was telling us all of the graphic horror stories about accidents with chemicals we would be using in the lab. Well, all who know me know that I pass out at the thought of a drop of blood. Yes, I passed the middle of class...and when I came to, class had been continuing like nothing had happened. Yep. I sure felt significant in that class room.
After another series of events, and the fact that I would have to skip a test to go to DISNEY WORLD, I dropped the class.
Anyone see any llamas lately? I did. Watch Romancing the Stone, and you will too.
That is all.

At this very moment I am avoiding studying.
I would pretty much rather be doing anything than studying...even going to the dentist. It's that bad.

So, Sunday is my birthday, and I am super excited. I am going to party it up with my home slices.*
I'm definitely looking forward to that!
Random side note: I hate when people spell "definitely" like "definately." It drives me absolutely insane!

Birthday week awesomeness has already begun, and let me tell you, it rocks.

Home slices*-Family

Buy, buy, buy...SAVE

Hello lovelies...
Just for random times, here is my not-gonna-happen wish list:
Well guys, there you go because sometimes you just like to look at well-made, pretty things.
Also, somtimes you just need to buy something nice for yourself. Go ahead...I'm such a bad influence.

Chica of the Wilderness

I would just like to prepare you guys for the picture you are about to is probably the best picture in the world.
WARNING: This photo may cause extreme awesomeness and randomness!
See? See?! I told you picture ever.
Just so you know, I am being the second cougar in this picture, Kate (my oldest sister) is very afraid/astonished by this first cougar, and Bryant (Kate's husband/my brother-in-law) is running from the first cougar.
We, clearly, love the wilderness. I happen to love this indoor wilderness a little more. I'm an inside pet.

Speaking of the fabulous red purse swaying at my side, it is Kate Spade. It was originally $200. I bought it at T.J. Maxx. I spent $60. 'Nough said.

Who has two thumbs and likes cute, tall boys? This chick.

Copy Cat

Lovely people! I have changed my blog header, yet again. I figured warmer weather means brighter colors! Plus, I took that picture at DISNEY WORLD!!!! AHHH!!!!!
Please excuse my tiny hyperventilation...
Plus, I was bored.
Plus, it's my noisy little blog and I can!!
Please excuse my tiny, four year old fit of rage...

I really liked my first ever header, but technically the pattern I used wasn't mine so I got afraid of getting in trouble for copyrighting...I have a mild case of paranoia. Maybe I should put a link on the word copyright linking you readers to a page telling you that the word copyright is copyrighted...copyrighted? Copywrit? Copywrote? Hmm...just kidding guys.

Just in case you readers haven't noticed...I tend to write in the exact dialect of the flow of my brain. Now, now, settle down. I know what you are thinking...This chick is a straight up loon! Well, think again! Actually, you are correct; I just want you guys to keep on using that thing your skull has been preserving for all those years...

Even When You Are A Good Driver...

Well, tonight a deer hit me. No I did not hit a hit me. I was driving back to college from home when I saw a deer about to cross the street. Since no one was behind me, I stopped the car. The deer passed so I let my foot off the break when BAM!
Hello deer number two. I didn't realize you had an appointment to meet Sophie today. Oh, it was a walk-in appointment?

For you (including me) animal freaks out there, the deer was fine.
For you (including me) car lovers out there, Sophie got a little bruised around the tire. :(
I never thought I would be one of those girls who doesn't hit deer, only gets hit by deer. I am that girl, apparently.

So, Leah, what did you learn today?
Well, I learned that you should always, always leave five seconds later or sooner than you planned.
Freaking genius right there.

Fashion as of right now...

is a t-shirt, jeans, and toms. This is what happens when you have a deathly (over dramatic) cold and are about to rush off to take an exam. Wish me luck! :)


Sunday, February 27, 2011

Fashion is...

  • creativity
  • only about having fun
  • should never be taken seriously
  • not always style
  • sometimes trendy
  • about being something you aren't
  • a way to show the real you
  • a way to showcase your imagination
  • crazy
  • calm
  • bold and neutral
  • mixing and matching
  • layering
  • simple
  • not caring what anyone else thinks

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Haha. Ha...

I'll post something awesome soon! Pinky!

Speaking of Scrunchies

So, how does my new blog header look?? Be brutal! Not really.
I dressed cute today...after my classes...
So fellas, this is what I wore except I buttoned the cardigan, wore a green scarf, and a camel colored coat.
          I must crunch up for you to see all of me in a picture...
                                      darn you tiny mirror:
                                        Crunchy scrunchy:
                                  My favorite shoes. Ever:
Today, Mom and Kim (sister) picked me up and we went out on the town! Okay, really we went shopping and to Olive Garden...I feel your judgemental eyes, and I just don't mind :)
Once again, I bought tons of candy. Maybe I will take a picture of all of this amazingness that I am engulfing, or maybe I will keep you guessing.
We went to T.J. Maxx (because I am now addicted...thanks Kate), and we found a beautiful red leather Kate Spade purse. O. M. Y.* It was originally a $400 bag, but at T.J. Maxx it was $99! Golly gee I love Kate Spade!!!! If only I had a job...Oh wait, if only I had a job that actually gave me hours...I'm just a dreamer, though.
Dear Kate Spade, I would love to buy everything you create. I would also like to work for your New York store. I pinky promise I would clean it and take care of it and treat it like my own...Wait, we aren't convincing our parents to buy us a puppy, are we?
OMY*--Oh my yeti

Eat a Cupcake

Lovely people of blogging-ton! Greetings (I'm a nerd)! I haven't posted anything new in a while because I have been busy doing college stuff and things. Stuff and things...HAHA English teachers Mom and Kate! Don't hate me.
So today I went to class at 8 A.M, picked up some frozen food at the store on campus for lunch later, went back to my dorm, and took a nap...a really long nap. It. Was. Great. I had other classes...yadda yadda yadda...then I went SHOPPING :)
I went to Old Navy, T.J. Maxx, and Target...
I love Target, but not when they play hide and seek with creepy toys with me:
                                     Look at this cupcake:
              I bought a gold watch ($12.99!!!), Almay smokey eye shadow for brown eyes (with bonus eye liner!), mints, and CANDY:
                       Eye shadow play date with my eyelids:
I am fairly smart (time to toot my own horn...toot toot*), but when it comes to test taking, forget it. I suck at taking tests! Good thing tests don't matter in college...oh wait......
Today, I discovered that I should not shop alone. Over these past few months I have discovered that I should never go down the snack or cracker isle, alone or not.
My name is Leah, and I am addicted to snacks/crackers.

Toot toot*--I just said toot.

Fruit By The Inches

So, my birthday isn't until April, but.........

Or maybe I should get a (better) paying job so I can save up for these things.
I can hear my dad sighing with relief now...

Has everything gotten more expensive, or am I just getting old? Wait, I know what you are going to say. I knew I had wrinkles...

Random: Is it just me, or did Fruit by the Foot get smaller??

Dun Is My Second Language

Well, guys, I am bored. New news? Nope. Do homework, you say? Already done...duh.
(I almost spelled "done" like "dun"...maybe I should freshen up on my first language...)
Three things I love:
Good things to love, no? I also love florals, but my mind went blank when I was making this selection...oh, sweet life of a college kid.

Breaking News: I am planning to have lunch with a good friend from high school on Friday! Yay social life!
Just kidding. I have a social life.

Sleeping In

Pretty, pretty nails. Yep, I grew those suckers! I'm a proud little fingernail momma!
Tomorrow, I get to sleep in as late as I want. Everyone say it with me, "Ahhhhh..." Jealous? You should be.

I was watching the television* today when I saw another stupid cave movie preview. Listen people, quit going into stupid, scary caves/holes and we (the world) will not have to endure your stupid previews.


The television*-I am an eighty year old man who just discovered the technology. Kids these days...

Pocket Full of...Llama??

Lots of posts today, huh guys? Well, that's what happens when I am bored...and have already taken a nap...
This little fella came from my oldest sister for Christmas. We all have them now with each of our first name initials on them. The only difference? Mine is gold because I love gold jewelry. My family knows me so well :)
 Random: My llama
I got this little guy at Christmas. Isn't he adorable?! However I have no name for him/her yet...any ideas??
Maybe I will take him/her with me so I can take pictures of him/her in random places...maybe I won't...maybe we will have to wait and see...maybe.
In case you guys didn't know, I love llamas. I'm not entirely certain how this love came just happened.

Good Deal of the Day: My oldest sister, Kate, called my older sister, Kim, and I while we were at dinner one night. Kate had found all of our sizes in the classic white Converse on BIG TIME sale! She bought all three pairs for less than the original price of one pair! Bargain dance!*

Bargain dance*-It's kind of like a ho-down and a hula dance combined.


I Warned You

See? See that? Told you so!

Southern Humidity

Hmmm...I don't like the look of that. Humidity + Leah's hair = Frizz Monster. Simple enough math for you? I thought so. 

Random note for today: My nails are long and strong! Impressive, right? For you all...probably not. For me...YES.

Another random note: Llama + camera = fun post tomorrow.
That is all.

Cloning Ellie

La de da...hhhmmm...oh, hey fellas! So I was looking through my Christmas pictures from this year when I realized that we kind of adore my oldest sister's dog...
See here:
                                   By the way, this is Ellie:
                     Ellie loves the snow...mostly digging in it:
 She has a front paw...she just likes to lay with it curled under:
            If I could clone Ellie, it would already be done...or is it:
Maybe someday I will have my own Ellie. Well, not exactly Ellie because Ellie is Kate's dog. Maybe I will invent a cloning machine/device/mechanism. Maybe I won't. Maybe I'm a super genius. Maybe that's most definitely true. Shhhh! I don't want the spies to know how super genius my smarty pants are!

Now I am done being weird for tonight. Okay, that's a lie. Actually, I like being "weird." Who wants to be normal?? Have I talked about this before?? Anyways...

Roll Out of Bed

First day back to college...ahhhh.
I found all of my classes again, and they all went smoothly. Hopefully they will be manageable...just saying.

Random Picture Day!!!!!

My car, Sophie, all iced over:
View from the Country Store outside of Callaway Gardens:
          Riding across the mountain outside of Callaway Gardens:
                                The prettiest little icicle tree:
                               Toomer's Corner the day after
I did not take a shower this morning...7 o'clock came very early this morning. I wore basically exactly what I woke up in. I am a tiny bit of a bum. Don't judge me. My hair won't look greasy until later tonight. I'll shower then...maybe. It's not like I don't wear deodorant! I'm in college; you've done it too! Hmph, arms crossed.

Hmm...I think that is all so far this week. As of now I am cuddled up at my parents house smelling the delicious dinner being cooked. I will go back to the dorm later tonight...but right now, home sweet home!

Back to School...I'm not a Fool

Friday, I think, Mom, Kim, and I went to Auburn so I could walk around and find where all of my classes will be for this semester...I'm paranoid I won't be able to find them...sue me.
I got this dress from the Loft. It is so comfortable!!! In this first picture I wore a belt with it, but I actually didn't wear the belt that day...just so you know.
                     One of the buildings for one of my classes...
We were running to the car...Kim said, "go pose by that rock!"        I  said, "Okay!"
                    Mom and me walking back into downtown...
                The three of us in front of the main Auburn sign...
Oh college...maybe you will be more fun this semester. *Fingers crossed.*

Handy Dandy

Today started just like any other day. I rolled out of bed (like it was a hassle), slipped on my slippers, put on my glasses, looked over to the floor, and...there was a lizard! The little fella was just chillin' by my monkey bag.* The lizard looked exactly like this:
Poison. Slithering tongue. Deathly, razor sharp claws.

When Mom came home from work, she captured this little guy with my pink butterfly catcher.** My hero.

*Monkey Bag: Not a typo.
**Pink Butterfly Catcher: Everyone doesn't have one of these lying around?
