New Dorm Room!!!

Posted by Abby at 6:22 PM 6 comments
Hello everyone!!  So after hours of unpacking, and even more hours of stressing, I have officially moved into my dorm!!  I am pretty happy with how everything turned out.  Unfortunately, the chair that I posted a picture of earlier didn't fit so I had to send it back with my parents.  Everything else I brought up worked great, though!  I'm not going to do a super in depth room tour at the moment since I'm still not sure I'm going to keep everything exactly as it is, but I figured I would share how my room looks for now.

So here you can see my bed, desk, and nightstand area.  As I said in an earlier post, the bedding and pillow is from Urban Outfitters, and the throw at the end of the bed is from Pier One.

Above my bed I just hung up some photos of my friends and some of the people I have met in the past.  I got both the string and the clothes pins from Michael's.

This is my nightstand area.  I just have a couple of mugs, some lotions and deodorant, a cat lamp one of my best friends gave me, a (fake) plant from Pier One, and a Britta water filter from Target.

I took this picture while I was still moving in, so there was still a bunch of junk on it.  I hung up a 4-piece bulletin board from Staples, but it's already fallen down twice so I'm not sure if I will keep it or not.  And I also used a shoe shelf from Target as extra space on my desk.

Finally, we have my closet.  I am so happy that all my clothes actually fit inside of it because I was worried I packed too much.  And the two bins on top I'm just using for extra storage, and they were from Target as well.
. . . . .

So that is my side of the dorm.  Obviously I have a roommate but I wasn't going to take pictures of her side because weird.  I'm pretty happy with it so far, and hopefully I can sort through any of the small glitches I have with it.

Been A Bit Hectic

Posted by Abby at 10:15 PM 4 comments
I am leaving for college in four days, so I have been busy packing and saying bye to friends and making sure everything is in order as far as housing and books and all that.  It's a very weird feeling knowing that in just a few days, I'm moving to a new city and completely starting over.  I find myself already feeling nostalgic for my home and the city where I live, like I've already moved away.  

So yeah I've been a bit busy recently, so I haven't been able to make a post in a while.  Once I move in and get settled, I plan on making a dorm tour-esque post, so hopefully my room will actually look nice.  Until then, I'm afraid this is all you get.  But I will be posting more soon... hopefully.

Liebster Award!

Posted by Abby at 8:53 PM 1 comments

I was nominated for a Liebster Award! I had actually never even heard of this until I was nominated by Helen, whose blog can be found here. ((Thank you, Helen!)) I think this is a cute little way to give some more info about myself, as well as help discover lovely new blogs.

The rules are as followed: 
  • You must answer all 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you. 
  • You must link back to the person that nominated you. 
  • After completing these questions you must nominate bloggers (with under 200 followers) and give 11 questions of your choice. 
  • You can not nominate the person who nominated you. 
  • You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link to your post so they can learn more about it.

Questions from Helen:

1. What is your favourite item of clothing?
As of right now, it's a black romper from Forever 21 I just bought. I have been loving it recently.

2. Best memory from school/uni?
Every Thursday my friends and I would leave between classes and get iced coffees from Dunkin Donuts and those times were always the best.

3. What food could you eat forever?
Ice cream, definitely.

4. Which place would you love to visit?
New Zealand! And Australia. And Rome, too.

5. Your miracle makeup product?
Definitely the Nars concealer. It gets rid of the horrid dark circles I have under my eyes when I wake up in the mornings.

6. What 'resolution/goal' would you love to complete by 2015?
Well since I'm starting up at my university this semester, I would say my main goal is just to not panic and stress too much, and to try and remember to actually have fun and not just kill myself over getting good grades.

7. Favourite blogs?
Of course, I love Zoella and SprinkleofGlitter, and I've also been loving FromRoses and The Beauty Department.

8. Worst makeup or fashion mistake?
I once over plucked one of my eyebrows and had one thinner than the other. Does that count?

9. Best advice for your 15 year old self?
Fix your freaking haircut.

10. Who's concert would you love to go to?
Oh man, I love nothing more than going to concerts. McFly, Childish Gambino, Sir Sly, Arctic Monkeys, Pharrell Williams, Lorde, and I would love to see The 1975 again!!

11. Marmite, love it or hate it?
Never tried it!!

I am nominating:

Also, if anyone wants to answer these questions, feel free to do so in the comments!

Okay, my questions are:

1. What/who made you want to start blogging?
