Ali & Ariel State Fair Photoshoot!

Hi all!

I am so so so happy to be able to have the chance to sneak a quick blog post in. I know I promised one post a week, but honestly my senior year has been kicking my BOOTY and this girl has been hitting the books so. dang. much. In between studying for Supply Chain and writing marketing reports, I had the amazing opportunity to shoot with Ali and Ariel! A lot of people know that I loooooooove this company. Ali, the founder, is one of the absolute sweetest people I have met. She is so so so caring, and beautiful inside and out! Her company, Ali and Ariel, makes super cute greek clothing, and we're lucky they're based so close to my campus! They host lots of fun events with us, and I've been working with Ali for a little over a year now. This photoshoot was so dang fun, and you can click here to see the full lookbook and shop all the outfits! xx

Initiation Gifts: Part Two!

Hi all! With initiation for my chapter coming up this Sunday, I thought a Part Two for Initiation gifts is in order! Initiation is such a special moment, and it means that your new member class are now your sisters forever (in a very non-creepy way)! I certainly don't think anything over-the-top needs to be done for initiation presents, but I do think that it is important to make sure your new members, little, and/or grandlittle understands how special and precious this moment is. I know for my initiation, my entire family (none of which are in my sorority) surprised me with just about a million letters of how proud they are of me. That was something so special to me because even my family from out of state who I only get to see every few years sent in letters. I still have all of these, and I love looking back on the memory!

There are so many ways to save money while still recognizing this important ceremony. I kind of think about it more like celebrating a Baptism and less than celebrating Christmas - is that confusing? I mean to say it is definitely one of those things where the thought truly matters. Below, I've made a small little gift list of ideas for that New Member in your life. For more ideas click here, and I hope you all have an amazing Halloweekend!


Resumes!

HEY Y'ALL. Happy Wednesday! All this week, I have been juggling midterms, projects, registering for my last semester of college (Um, what??) and kind of most importantly - apply for a million internships! My major offers elective credit for internships, so basically if I don't get an internship then I am stuck with a 7:45AM class my last semester of school! And to that I say a big HECK. NO. So anyways, that's why I've applied to over 30 internships! One of the most intimidating parts of applying was just sending in my resume to companies that weren't openly asking for internship applications. So, I found a bunch on Etsy (and most are for less than a cup of coffee!) that I LOVE and worked perfectly for me! Not only did they 1.) make my resume much more professional in a way faster manner than I could, but more importantly 2.) will make my resume stand out against other applicants! Below I have 10 different resumes featured, be sure to check them out!! xx

I Have Another Little?!




HIYA Y'ALL. Happy Monday!! Mondays suck but this past weekend is worth bragging about because I GOT ANOTHER LITTLE! I know. I'm crazy. I know I know I know. BUT HAVING SORORITY-CHILDREN IS SO MUCH FREAKIN FUN. Anyways I love her I love my day 1 lil and I love my two new sorority nieces I got this weekend too! And if you're not in greek life, you are probably all "whatthehellisshetalkingaboutisthisenglishissheactuallyamomwhatthefck" and so you should probably just scroll down, say "awww how cute"and then keep scrollin' buddy. AND FOR ALL MY SORORITY SISTAS - here is what I did for baskets and reveal!

So we only had TWO baskets this year! I was definitely not prepared for this, because when I was a little we received four baskets, and when I got my first little, Leandra, we have three! So these baskets were seriously PACKED!

For Day One, I got her a Starbucks metallic cup with her name in vinyl calligraphy on it, matching lil ombre pumpkins with glitter KD vinyl decals, gourmet popcorn, shirts, a Kate Spade postcard as her secret note, the creed and ta kala diokomen framed!

For Day Two, I got her a laptop cover, pink fluffy blanket, Teen Vogue Bible, two glittery frames, a bunch of shirts, a Juicy jacket with her name and our symbols embroidered in holographic silver, a Coffee & Confidence KD mug, gourmet marshmallows and chocolate!

Reveal was on a SATURDAY morning this year, bright and early! Lauren ran home to me wearing our matching fam shirts, juicy jacket, shorts, and furry slides! Literally the ENTIRE outfit was the same :,) LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER. My OG little was even there to welcome her home!! Seriously so dang fun. I also got two nieces! After reveal the whole fam went to ChopShop for brunch and then to The Madison for a spin class with #BumbleBizz! SO. FUN. (even though my booty is already sore from that workout) All the pics are below, and HAPPY FOUNDERS DAY, KD!!!

Kappa Delta Founders Day: Why This Day Means So Much To SO Many!

One hundred and twenty years ago this upcoming Monday, four women in Farmville, Virginia founded a sisterhood that would go on to impact the world. These women - Lenora, Mary, Julia, and Sara - would go on to lead their most honorable and beautiful lives, to the highest extent. Kappa Delta's founder have graced over a quarter of a million women, now members, with growth through lifetime learning, responsibility for one's own integrity and ethical actions, engagement in social and civil interests, altruistic service to others, and truth and loyalty to one another - our five pillars. As Kappa Deltas, our sisters have totaled countless amounts of volunteer hours for the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., and has raised over twenty-one million dollars for the Prevent Child Abuse America. This one is for you, Kaydee. For our past, our present, and our ever-confident, ever-loyal future. AOT.

MY COLLEGE GRADUATION PICTURES!! // 2018



Hi all! HAPPY HUMP DAY. This week has freakin' worn me out but in a nice, busy-but content way. Weekend, whereyaat??? Last Saturday, I had the BEST time taking my senior photos for college. I am graduating Arizona State with a BS in marketing from the WPCarey School of Business in April 2018, and am just so dang excited! I know a lot of people say to stay in college for as long as possible, but I'm actually graduating in three years! I just can't see myself not moving on in my life journey, and being stuck in school for another year. To each their own, I guess ;)



I took my pictures with Natalie Allen (I'll have everything linked below) at Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek, Arizona. Even though we took them in mid-October DURING a pumpkin and chile festival at the farm, the weather and all the plants looked like we were in spring. Heck, some of my favorite pictures are when I am in a peach tree grove picking wildflowers that had grown in the field in bits and pieces. We also found an adorable lemon yellow (my FAVORITE color of this season) pick-up truck, a sunflower field, and a little yellow barn! It was so dreamy and so much dang fun. I'll include everything below about my makeup, hair, outfit, and more!
