Now trending: Bucket bags

Now trending: bucket bags
I have been loving bucket bags lately! I want to invest in a new fun bag and I think a mini bucket bag is perfect for summertime. I love that they can fit a lot even though they are still small. That mini Marc by Marc Jacobs bag might be my favorite ;)
These next few weeks are packed with exams, final projects and papers as school winds down. It’s hard to believe that I’ll be graduating in less than a month! Time surely has flown by. I just have a few more days of classes and then all I have to worry about is what dress to wear to graduation!

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine's Day Gift Guide
I can’t believe we’re already half-way through February! I feel like time is flying by, and it’s my last semester of college so part of me is very bittersweet about that.
I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s day. But I’ve also never been a hater. It’s just always just been another day of the year for me, except for the tinge of excitement for Feb. 15 when all that candy goes on sale.
With that being said, my mom’s birthday and my birthday are both in February. So, I definitely get in the spirit for thinking of gift ideas for giving and receiving (wink wink).
I think Valentine’s day is a great way to surprise someone you care about with a little gift, so I compiled this list of ideas for you! I’m pretty positive my mom and sister would love everything on this gift guide.
Not sure what to get the lady in your life? You definitely can’t go wrong with a beauty-related item like a nice nail polish or candle.
What are you giving your significant other (or your mom, aunt, sister, cousin, neighbor??) this Valentine’s day? Don’t forget the chocolates!

Game days are the best. Everyone on campus (or even in just in Gainesville) seems to be in a great mood. I love walking around campus before kickoff and soaking up the school spirit! It’s still too hot lately to wear jeans and cozy cardigans for tailgating, sadly, but the weather is definitely cooling off slowly!

I wore this last week for the UF home game. Although I didn’t go, I still wanted to get in spirit! I love showing my Gator pride by incorporating bits of royal blue + orange in my looks. It lets me be in spirit while also wearing pieces I can wear outside of the stadium.
What do you wear on game days?

Mother’s Day gift guide: What to get your mom

Mother's Day gift guide
Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Have you gotten her gift yet? C. Wonder has a great selection online. The key is to give her something small and thoughtful–I like to go with a “mini luxury”: a little-pricey item that I know she would love, but would never buy for herself; i.e. Jo Malone lotion. And don’t forget the flowers!!
Hope everyone’s having a great week so far! I am soaking in the sun and spending a lot of time with my family. I’m so lucky to live right next to the beach—I definitely miss that all year back at school!
