Festival Attire Is The Best Attire

My oh my has it been a whirlwind of a few days down here in the beautiful state of Florida. Two days of raging and now it's time to actually start relaxing a bit on my vacation.

My Christmas dreams came true with the arrival of the beautiful all white headdress to my possession before driving down to Miami for the amazing Life in Color Festival. 

Me and the found of dayglow/Life in Color Luk Tracz. 

Found Dominic sporting a headdress too :) 

Click on this link on Twitter to read about the Festival I had attended, and there I was!

Shelby and I also went to the second day show Dada Life, Tritonal, and Pierce Fulton. We had the awesome pleasure of meeting the PLUR veteran Lady Casa at this event, one of Shelby's bucket list items. It was amazing to see a friend have such a touching moment.

Dada life was amazing, highly recommended show.

Merry Christmas!

Time for the big drive, I'll be excited to update next week with all my pictures oh my it'll be an interesting and adventurous week. My friend Shelby, who writes the EDM Phenomenon blog, is the perfect girl to go to the beach with. We can expect many wild nights and early mornings sippin' piƱa coladas on the beach.

This is one of my favorite ornaments I got in St. Johns, cannot wait to be on the beach. 

Spent sometime with the family this morning and am now making some coffee for this long trip ahead.  Hopefully I can bring some sunshine back to PA with me.

Christmas Eve Is Magical

There is nothing like being able to be next to the coal stove on Christmas Eve at your moms house watching 24 hours of a Christmas story. Exactly what I plan on doing all night tonight!

A little care package/Christmas gift from my brother :) 

I think I am finally ready to embark on the road trip of a lifetime tomorrow. The last couple days have been busy bee days running around doing last minute things for the trip and Christmas activities with friends and family.

It's so strange to think I won't be seeing most of my friends until next year now! 2013 was so good to me I can only hope that 2014 has half as much excitement ahead. I need to start thinking of a resolution, anyone have them in mind already??

Sun Bound

The stress of the holidays is setting in but it is almost over! One thought that is keeping me going in full force these next couple days, arriving in beautiful Miami, Florida for the Life in Color Festival. Now my only issue is trying to not pack my entire wardrobe to take with us.

I will be taking a little break from blogging while in Miami but will hopefully have a moment or two to write and quick post. This adventure will be titled: Two Girls, A Jeep, & Time To Rage. Exactly what it entails to be, a great fucking time with a best friend. Not only are we going to the Life in Color Festival on December 27, 2013. We are also seeing Dada Life at the Sun Life Stadium the day after as well!!! Then a few days of relaxing on the beaching, and maybe some shopping. New Years Eve should be spectacular in Miami, I've never been out of little State College so I'm sure in for a treat.

Anyone else traveling for the holiday?! Where are you going??

Crunch Time

Sure finals are over but now comes time for the insanely busy time of working nonstop in retail to make Christmas go round and getting to all of my family functions before driving to Miami! Like most girls packing really stresses me out, I have two concerts to attend down there and New Years Eve out on the town, time to start planning and packing.

Most of all I don't want to get too stressed or wrapped up in my trip before I leave because I just want to be able to enjoy my time with my family as well. They mean the world to me and without the crazy, strong, support system I've always had I don't know where I would be today. It's so important to be thankful for everyday you have with them. During these next few days I need to be semi-party ready but comfortable enough to run around and do errands as well too.

Some of the best pasta available around Central PA. Fasta & Ravioli Co.

DIY Gift Wrapping Ideas

Tis that time of the year! Time to start getting ready for those Christmas parties and family gatherings. Being a broke college student this year not only did I struggle affording gifts but also the materials to wrap it all together! So my post today is dedicated to how you can be resourceful with things found around ones house and dorm when it comes to dressing up presents.

Materials I used:
Boxes from packages
Color construction paper
Hemp/twine cord
Colorful ribbons
Fake Flowers

Helpful hints: Take advantage of all free gift boxes that are given out at stores!! Also be on the look all year round for little boxes and interesting paper patterns to keep stored in an area for this time of the year, it makes the scrounging up process much easier.

Not Sure Where You're Going

Just like some days when you get up and you have absolutely no idea what you want to wear or what life will hold for you that day, sometimes you're just not sure where you are going. Such is life sometimes especially when you're coming to a crossroads in life, like the major turning point of graduating from college. So you're an adult now...what's next?

I believe it is OKAY if you don't have the answer to this. Not only is it intimidating to think about being all on your own and getting a real job to pay for bills and rent but it's all around a transitional period of your life from partying every weekend to getting more serious. Who wants to do that? Well it doesn't necessarily need to happen like that but it is a big difference than most of us are used to.

Embrace it, push yourself out into reality and don't be afraid to get hurt and screw up. Failure is going to happen in your life and if you can push passed it and deal with those issues to try again you will become even stronger. Don't ever be afraid to follow your dreams even if people say you are crazy, because anything can happen!

All I know is where ever I chose to go, I'm taking my pup with me.

Have An Open Mind

When you go in to your favorite store the next time you go shopping I encourage you to try the one thing in the store you would never wear, or think you could never pull off. This is something I believe you should do at every store, because I bet 9 times out of 10 you will be surprised with how it actually looks or the fit of it and how it becomes more likable than it appealed on the hanger.

Also have an open mind when thinking about taking a new chance on a look or the way you style an outfit. It takes a lot of confidence to not care what other people think but you will be so much happier if you live this way. To not care what anyone else thinks of you and to not judge anyone else because you wouldn't like to be judged either.

That's how I felt about the sweater I am wearing today but I am so glad I pushed myself to try it on! 

Today's Look: 
Black Leggings- Target

Red Velvet Doesn't Only Look Delicious On Cupcakes

I love that velvet has come back to the holiday season trend as hot as it was in the 1990's. There's something about that feeling of velvet that makes you feel warm and fuzzy, like the holiday cheer is just buzzing through you. It's also something that I believe adds some class to an outfit for a holiday party.

Today's Look: 
Dress 2011 Season- Tracy Reese 
Black Oxford Wedge- LOFT

When You're Feeling Lucky..

Go for it! If you have good vibes about something or have a strong feeling you could actually achieve something you really want you just need to jump in head first and go for it! Try your best and if you fail or don't get the exact results you want at least you don't have to live with the underlying question. what if? You never know when you could miss out on the next big opportunity just because you were afraid to take a risk.

I've been feeling lucky lately and have pursed entering as many free concert ticket contests, free trips, free clothes, and anything else I can just on the whim of having a good feeling about it. I haven't been completely unsuccessful either! About a month ago I won a re-usable tote from Ann Inc. and a contest they had going on their BFF app. Then last week I received a Taylor Swift Wonderstruck perfume set from another fashion blogger The Modern Austen. So next time you see a little contest on your Twitter feed don't think you'll never win! You may just be surprised.
