Back to Cool

Back to cool

I’m not in school anymore, but my favorite part of going to school was back-to-school shopping! Here are a few items I wish I thought of when I was still in school (all things I would still buy today).

1. Back Me Up // I know my iPhone dies really fast and when I was in class I would have killed for an external battery charger. Say goodbye to hunting down outlets!

2. Book Toter // Well how cute are Hershel Supply Co. backpacks? Even if you’re wearing sweats and your boyfriend’s tshirt, you will be chic toting around this backpack!

3. Well Rested // I believe the key to having a good school day is waking up on a good note. If this typography pillow case won’t set your day off right then I don’t know what else will…

4. French Case // Your cool new pens need a cool Parisian place to call home.

5. But First, Coffee // I don’t know about you, but I need coffee in order to stay awake during class. Am I an addict? Maybe…..but this gold tumbler definitely makes me want to drink more caffeine!

It’s Monday already….the weekend always feels too short. Here is an #OOTD of mine from the weekend. This is always the outfit I gravitate towards when I don’t want to put much thought into an outfit, but I still want to look put together. Can’t go wrong with some boy fit denim shorts and a slouchy top. Stylin’ while stayin’ comfy! As we like to say it in the south….have a great week y’all!

Home-spiration // Gallery Wall

Whenever I have a creative brain fart, I know I can always turn to my Pinterest. Currently, I am looking for decor for my two very white, blank walls and I always found that a gallery of frames was somewhat beautifully messy. Here are some pictures I found that sparks my interest, and I hope it inspires you!

Classic black and white gallery with a pop of color for surprise and intrigue- A Beautiful Mess 

Frame2

This layout is just classy and not too sassy. Right up my alley!

Well you know anything with gold is something I can’t say no to. I’m in love with how gold just instantly dresses up simple art and typography- Sequins & Stripes

Frame6

Here’s another option: wooden frames. Gives the space a more natural feel.

Accessories are to outfits as what framed art is to a big wall-  Dwell

Every wall needs love! So show your walls some love, slap some frames on it….but of course, do it strategically. Also TGIF y’all!

Tech OOTD // Puncha Yo Buns

I swear Kat and I are 7 year old kids at heart and we can both agree that Adventure Time is one of the greatest shows we’ve ever watched. If you haven’t seen it, then you should at least give it a try, watch one episode and let us know what you think. Expect a lot of randomosity! After watching it you’ll understand the “Puncha Yo Buns” reference. Kat created this simple background for all our fellow Adventure Time lovers!

DIY // Gold Patterned Coasters

Gold Coasters1

Hey Monday DIY // I was in need of coasters for my desk because of my excessive coffee drinking, so instead of searching for my ideal coasters…I just DIY-ed them. It’s pretty easy to do and here are the tools you’ll need:

  • Cork board (I got a four pack from Target)
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Masking tape
  • Circular item to trace (I used a Bath and Body Works large candle cap)
  • Spray paint

Gold Coasters3

5 Easy Steps:

  1. Trace circles on the cork board
  2. Cut them out
  3. Tape the pattern you want
  4. Spray away
  5. Wait an hour and it’s ready to use!

Hope you have an awesome week! Don’t let Monday bring you down!
