Hey Cats!

Happy Fri-Yay! This week has been so busy that I don’t even know where it went. But it’s been fun! Last night, I drove downtown to have dinner with my mom, who’s in town for training, so it was great to see her! After work today, I’m going into full-on vacation mode, with pedicures at 6, then finishing up shopping, packing, and getting to sleep early for our 5 am flight Sunday morning. It will be here before I know it! Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:

1.College Station’s Best

Napa Flats CS (2)

So I found this list  of the 45 Best Places to Eat in College Station and it made me want to return to Aggieland for the sole reason of eating. I’m proud to say that I’ve eaten at most of those places (if I could choose my last meal, it would def be from Napa Flats), but there’s a few that are new! And some that I’ve missed. Just another reason to go back! If you live there, try some for me!

2. Lyon and Post

Lyon-post

I’ve been seeing other bloggers talk about Lyon + Post for a while now, but I didn’t really know what it was so I just ignored it until I saw that one of my favorite bloggers (Brenna from Chic Street Style) scored a mega deal on an adorable dress, and was intrigued. After perusing the site, I discovered that it’s a site that sends you clothing to try on but doesn’t charge you for any of it unless you keep it! Which is great for those of us who are short and are sometimes scared to buy things online. They have great brands like Elizabeth and James, BB Dakota, Vince, and more!  There’s no subscription fee, and you get to try before you buy, just like a brick and mortar store! It vaguely reminds me of “About the Fit”, the fictional company that Anne Hathaway’s character runs in The Intern (which is a fabulous movie, by the way. It motivates me to no end to be the ultimate girlboss, and I watched it with my ex-boyfriend and he hated it and that’s part of the reason he’s not my boyfriend anymore. Bye). I’m waiting until I return from vacation to send for my first batch of clothes, but I’ve already got my eyes on a few things! If you’re interested, register here to get a $30 credit for your first purchase!

3. White Queso

white queso

White queso is my latest obsession. Actually, any queso, but I’ve been on a particular quest for queso blanco since Cinco de Mayo. The clinical staff in my office had fajitas catered on Cinco de Mayo from a local Mexican food restaurant, and they had white queso. One of my coworkers was telling me how delish it was, so obviously I had to go sneak some. Then I kept finding reasons to go up to the front, but I would actually just stop by the break room and sneak a chip loaded with queso. I’m not proud, but I’m also not sorry about it. Anyways, right after the queso-swiping incident, I came across this recipe for white queso from The Baking Fairy, so obviously I pinned it. Some of my friends and I are planning on grilling dinner one night soon, and I’m definitely making this!

4. GIF of the Week

Brandi-redmond

This is how I feel that VACATION IS HERE!!!!! I literally cannot control myself. P.S., still trying to decide how I feel about Real Housewives of Dallas. I think Real Housewives of Houston would have been better, but Andy didn’t ask me. But considering the above, maybe he should have. ALSO: speaking of vacation: I will not be posting next week…sorry! I think it’s just time for a break from everything. But! Check back the following week, because I will have plenty of beach content!!

That’s all for meow- see you in a week!

Hey Cats!

We made it!! This has been the longest week. I honestly started thinking that it was Friday on like Tuesday. So that was sad. But it’s finally Friday for real, and I’m headed to see my family this weekend! Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:

1. Healthy Recipe

bell-pepper-pizzas-550-watermark

I found this recipe for bell pepper pizzas from Peas & Crayons on Pinterest a while back, and it looks so yummy! I love pizza, but I also love healthy versions of my favorites. However, I will most likely omit the broccoli. I mean whoa, it’s pizza, not a salad.

2. Dress

MUMU LBB

I know I featured this dress on my Beach Packing List post, but I can’t get over it. I love the print, Lite Bright Bull from MUMU, and I think I may have to get it. I’ll wear it on my birthday! Also, it’s May and my birthday is in August and I’ve already bought two rompers “to wear on my birthday”. I need help. Or a social life that requires something fancier than Nike shorts & a t-shirt. But probably both.

3. GIF of the week

This is how I felt when I thought it was Thursday but it was actually Tuesday.

Short and sweet this week- Have a great weekend!

Hey Cats!

Happy Friday! I feel like this week has flown by- it has been incredibly busy! Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’m looking forward to the weekend, with dinner and beach trip planning with my friends tonight, and finally getting to sleep in on Saturday! Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:

1.Upcoming Menu Item

corn-salad

Doesn’t this Mexican Street Corn Salad from Camille Styles just look delicious? Confession: corn is one of my favorite vegetables, even though my mom says it’s not really that great for you because it’s basically just cellulose. But whatever, I love it. Another confession: I’ve always wanted to try Mexican Street Corn, but I can’t eat corn on the cob because my front teeth are super loose due to a golf cart accident and a cheerleading accident in my youth. That is so sad and I can’t believe I just told everyone that. But that’s why I have to make this, so I can finally experience the glory that is Mexican street corn. Thank you.

2. Rompin’ Around

image1 (2)

I found this  Runaway The Label romper at Marshall’s a week or two ago, and I’m obsessed. It’s definitely not something I would typically buy, but I think that may be why I liked it so much! Unfortunately, I can’t find this one online anymore, but I did find a few that are similar! Here’s one with navy and white stripes, one with stripes and a plunging neckline, a similar shape, and this one that isn’t similar at all but I love it. I can’t wait to wear this on vacation! I’m planning on pairing it with my Vince Camuto Roux heels (P.S., they’re on sale!) and simple gold jewelry!

3.Giveaway

april28-macbookair+katespade-withtext

If you’re not following along on my Blogstagram, you should be! I posted this awesome giveaway last night for a Kate Spade tote bag, Kate Spade laptop sleeve, and a MacBook Air to go inside! Don’t worry, there’s still time to enter- the giveaway runs until 10 pm EST, Saturday April 10. Good luck!

4.New Lilly

lilly-spring

Lilly Pulitzer’s new arrivals hit my inbox this week, and I’m having to restrain myself. This Ryder shift is definitely a favorite, along with these laser-cut shorts, this romper, and this top that would go with absolutely everything this summer. Lilly, keep doing what you’re doing.

5.Bethenny

Enjoy your weekend. I sure will.

Hey Cats!

Happy Friday- we made it! After a busy week, I’m so ready for the weekend. Tonight and most of tomorrow, I will be volunteering with the Junior League at an event that gives Houston-area high school girls an incredible experience of finding a prom dress and accessories, along with self-esteem classes that empower them to be confident young women, all for free! I’m so excited! Also on Saturday night, my bestie Robyn is staying with me after her career fair, and it will be great to see her! Anyways, it’s been a jam-packed week, so here’s what I’m loving:

  1. Cat Clutch from ASOS

cat clutch

GUYSSSSSS. I need this. I saw it on Pinterest and lost my mind. I mean, can you imagine the conversation starters with this? “Cat’s out of the bag!” “Cat got your tongue?”. I’m sorry, this bag is just the cat’s meow. I’m sorry again. If I keep making cat jokes you may have to kick meowt. DONE I PROMISE. But really, how adorable is this straw clutch? It would be so cute for a night out, or for a trip to the beach! I need it. Right meow, not kitten.

2. Brussels Sprouts Pizza

BrusselsSproutsandRicottaPizza1

It happened. I found someone more obsessed with Brussels Sprouts than I am. This woman put them on a pizza. And it’s genius. I had to try this for myself this past weekend, and it was just the best. The sprouts with the onions and the creamy ricotta…ugh I loved it. Try this Brussels Sprouts and Ricotta Pizza from Recipe Runner if you’re brave enough! You will not regret it.

3. Jacks & JL

JL Jacks

Two of my favorite things combined! Jack Rogers has created a special pair of sandals for the Junior League, with 10% of the proceeds being donated back to the Association of Junior Leagues International to help women continue to make a difference in their communities. How great is that? Thanks Jack! P.S., a pair of Jacks are on my shopping list for this summer. If I don’t get these, I’m thinking about getting them in bone, cork, or Caribbean blue!

4. Taste of Streep

FullSizeRender (3)

Who does not love Miranda Priestly Meryl Streep? I stumbled upon this incredible Instagram account while creeping hard. No shame. You should follow it, because it consistently makes my day.

5. Bethenny is Back

bethenny-gif 2I forgot that the new season of RHONY premiered on Wednesday night until I turned my TV on. YAAS. Bethenny is back, and she knows it all.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! That’s all for meow!

Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

I’m coming to you live from my home office! I technically have the day off, but I have to answer calls from home today. To be honest, I’m a little nervous, because I won’t have all my files or anything to help me. But I’m sure I’ll get through it! I was so excited to sleep later, and I went to bed around 11, which is pretty early for me. This short week has been wonderful, and I’m excited for the holiday weekend! But anyways, on to the good stuff. Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:

1. Golden

gold-paint

Considering yesterday’s post, you already know that I love gold spray paint. It’s a cheap, easy way to add a little glam to your home! This post from You Put It On has quite a few ideas to make your house a gold mine, from candles to magnets and things in-between! I definitely have a few extra projects in mind after reading this.

2. Tassels

bauble-bar-tassels

These Acid Tassel Drop earrings from Baublebar are to die for. I’ve been wanting some tassel earrings since last summer, but I haven’t worked up the bravery to buy any, simply because I’m not sure if I’ll actually wear them. However, this seems to be the summer of statement earrings, so it’s only a matter of time.

3. Brownies

BrownieFeature

These Slutty Brownies  from What’s Gaby Cooking (my latest food obsession) are calling my name. I am D Y I N G to make them, but obviously I can’t just make a pan of these for only me, because fat. The Bible study I’ve been going to is having a girl’s night, and I’m thinking about making them then. So stay tuned, because I will definitely be sharing them with you if I do.

4. A Cinderella Story

cinderella-story

I found this wonderful Buzzfeed quiz that tests your knowledge of A Cinderella Story, the ultimate 2000’s chick flick. I made a 100 (duh), and if you don’t, literally never talk to me again because we obviously have nothing in common.

5. Abby Lee Miller

anigif_enhanced-buzz-32052-1367531106-15

Walk into your 4th of July party like this, everyone will LOVE. IT. This is how to win friends and influence others. Trust.

Enjoy your weekend, trolls. Abby Lee and I sure will.

Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad it’s the weekend. Both of my roommates were gone this week, so I was home by myself all week, and that got a little boring. But I’m at home for my mom’s birthday and a dentist appointment, so it will be nice to see my family for a few days! Here’s what I’m loving this week:

1.

double sided earrings

 

These double-sided earrings from My Jewel Candy. And basically everything from My Jewel Candy. They have cute, affordable jewelry for every taste- check it out!

2.

t-swift

 

Taylor Swift’s new song/video Shake It Off. I’m not even sorry about this one.

3.

kate spade purse

 

I finally got a big-girl purse! I bought this Kate Spade Raina bag during last week’s surprise sale and it came in on Tuesday! I love my Longchamp, but I’ve had it since before I went to college- it was time.

4. Being at home- my senior year (no.) starts in a little over a week, and I’m excited, but not super ready to get back into school mode. I’m glad I have a chance to relax and see my family before things get crazy!

5.

adult-cats

 

Saving the best for last, this ecard is exactly how I feel about life. I can kind of handle myself, but also not really. Who’s with me?

I’m linking up with Amy & Karli today for Oh Hey Friday!

 

Have a great weekend! That’s all for meow!

Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

I can’t believe it’s already Friday! I’ve had a great week at home, and I’m a little sad it’s coming to an end. I’m excited for my internship, but I also love spending time with my family! But you can’t have it both ways, so Monday it’s back to Aggieland I go! My parents have been at work during the day, so I’ve been on my own a lot this week, running errands and lunching, but mostly lounging- not sorry. Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:

1.

10 things before buying

First is this article from Yahoo! that gives 10 questions to ask yourself before buying anything expensive. As someone who is a bit of an impulse shopper, these questions make the “it’s an investment” excuse seem null and void. So before you swipe your card, take home that fabulous handbag, and then realize you can’t eat out for the next two months, go through this list- you’ll thank me.

2.

I got to see my little blonde bestie on Wednesday! She goes to school allll the way across Texas, so we rarely get to see each other. Also, we’re both staying in our college towns this summer, so Tuesday was probably the only day we’ll be in our hometown at the same time…tragic. But we’re planning to visit each other, so that will be good! We went last-minute shopping for her trip to Europe (she left Thursday- tell Kate Middleton I said hello!) and caught up. Definitely a highlight of my trip home, as usual! Also, we’re both wearing Kendra, duh. Kinsey’s wearing the Danielle Earrings in Rose Quartz, available on the Color Bar, and I’m wearing my Elle Earrings in Turquoise.

3.

Next is this little impulse purchase. I’ve been dying for this candle for years, ever since the people I babysat for in high school had them all over their house. I guess this means I’m an adult- choosing to buy a candle instead of nail polish.  It’s a Tyler Candle, made in my hometown, and the scent is Limelight. It’s such a fresh, sassy scent, and I can’t wait to use it in my room at school! They can be found at gift shops across Texas, and online. I’m obsessed.

4.

watermelon flats

These kate spade new york Jade Watermelon Flats bring back memories of a watermelon swim suit I had as a small child, and I’m loving it. How cute would these be for summer? Kate, you’ve done it again.

5. Last is the story about the cat that saved a little boy from a dog attack. I saw this on the news on Wednesday, and was quite surprised, since cats are usually pretty uninterested in anything other than themselves.  I’m sure you’ve seen this on the news as well, but if not, you can watch the video here. Just another reason to love kitties! I also love how the little boy said that the cat was his hero- so sweet!

So there you have it- another week! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Today I’m linking up with Darci, April, Christina, and Natasha!

That’s all for meow!

Friday’s Five

Hey Cats!

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’ve decided to add a few new features to the blog. One is Monday Musings, and the other is Friday’s Five. Now, I know that basically every blogger does Friday’s Five, but I think it’s a great way to share what I’ve been up to during the week aside from blogging, and to share little things I’ve come across that might not be able to stand alone as a single blog post. So here’s this week’s- enjoy!

1. This past weekend, my roommate Trina and I went to see Bring It On: The Musical on campus, and it was to die for. It was basically all of my unrealized childhood dreams (being cheer captain and a Broadway star) rolled into two hours. The acting and singing was phenomenal, and the stunts were everything. If it’s coming to a city near you, you definitely don’t want to miss it!

photo (64)

2. Next is this hilarious video of a girl screaming “Do You Want to Build A Snowman” while getting a splinter removed. I found it on Buzzfeed, where all good humor comes from, while I was supposed to be writing a paper- this is totally better. I honestly probably shouldn’t laugh at this, but I can’t help it. I watched it about three times in a row and was rolling on the floor in laughter, probably because I identify with this child and her dramatics.

3. My bestie Ashley and I have been dying to try out Wafology, a new food truck in the BCS. We finally went on “Waffle Wednesday”, and it was just divine. We both had the chicken & waffle sandwich with maple aioli sauce, and we agreed that it was the best thing we’d ever eaten. I also love how it was folded up like a little waffle taco- tacos are one of my main food groups.  They have many other delicious menu items, and it’s  my goal to try them all. If you’re in the Bryan/College Station area, FIND THEM. They post their location on Twitter and Facebook daily!

4. Last night my sorority had a mixer on Mount Aggie, a turf-covered “mountain” on campus, with a men’s organization. My roommate Trina and I went, and we had all the fun. All of it. We sled down it a couple of times by ourselves, but mostly together. We had a major crash at one point, but no injuries! Obviously, we took multiple selfies and videos as we descended, which may or may not have caused a few wrecks…oops!

photo (67)

5. I came across these monogrammed Jack Rogers sandals a few days ago, and I’m obsessed. If we’re being honest, I didn’t really get the hype over these shoes for the longest time- they kind of reminded me of something I would’ve worn at age five when my mother still dressed me. But, my feelings have recently changed, and they’re definitely on my to-buy list for the summer! I mean, they have a monogram, so I obviously #needit.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
