Blowfish Party!

Party, pictures, and fun times- c/o Blowfish Shoes 
A month ago, I entered a contest on a whim. I was home for spring break, I was on Facebook, I was bored. I don't remember how exactly it happened--I'm pretty sure it was in an ad on my sidebar--but I entered my email address into a Blowfish Shoes sweepstakes. A few days later, I got an email telling me I had won!!

The $500 in Blowfish Shoes prize was what originally caught my eye,  fashion obsessor that I am. I had been interested in Blowfish shoes ever since I won a pair 3 years ago through another fashion blogger's giveaway. But the prize included more! I was pleasantly surprised by the second half of it; a screening of The Duff Movie for 50 of my closest friends and me. After much coordination and cooperation on the part of CBS Films and Blowfish in accommodating my hectic college schedule, we set the date. Two weekends ago, I brought a bunch of girls in my sorority (Kappa Delta) for a Saturday afternoon showing and left happier than I could have imagined!!

Why was it so awesome? First of all, it wasn't just a movie screening. The morning of the screening, two taxis picked up my first-year friends and I, since we don't have cars on campus. Then, when we got there, the lovely Nikol of Blowfish Shoes showed us to our own private theater, and passed out popcorn and free shoe tickets to every single one of my friends!! My friends thought I was a celebrity. It was AWESOME

The movie was funny and cute--a good time for a group of college girls. I imagine that my high school self would have loved it even more! When the movie ended, my KD sisters and I clapped wholeheartedly. And then came our next surprise--a party, complete with food, a photobooth, and POLAROID PICTURES! As a girl who loves a good photograph, having polaroid pictures was the best thing ever. The party was a great time. It was like the fancy movie theater birthday party that I never had as a kid! 

To sum up, Kappa Delta at UVa is now obsessed with Blowfish Shoes. I've received snapchats and texts from happy sisters receiving their free shoes in the mail, and am so excited to go home in two weeks to find 10+ pairs of new shoes waiting for me!!

And here's what I'm most excited for: this summer, to express my thanks and love for Blowfish Shoes, I'll be spending an entire month wearing and blogging in only Blowfish. I may even be taking over the Blowfish Instagram for a week! Stay tuned...I can't wait to show you all how I style my new shoes. Winning a sweepstakes is certainly something I'll remember for the rest of my life, and I couldn't be happier that the sponsor was Blowfish Shoes. Thank you, Nikol, for one of the most fun Saturday afternoons I've had at college! KD loves you!

After 8 months at college, I have finally taken photos at a quality worthy of the 'good old days'. Back when I had loads of free time, and a perfect spot to do them right outside my front door! Well, I have a solution for taking photos here at UVa now that the weather is nice! This past weekend, I lugged my tripod all the way over from dorms to the beautiful gardens that surround the famous Lawn. There are 10 gardens in total I believe, and I found two of them particularly beautiful. The trees all in bloom here make it even more wonderful than I could have imagined! These may be some of my favorite blog photos...ever!

I wore this outfit on Saturday to hang out with a bunch of friends, eat yummy baked goods, and have fun outside. It was the perfect "darty" (day party) attire! I got loads of compliments on the frog print of my Lilly Pulitzer dress and wore my new favorite necklace. Also had multiple photoshoots with friends on this day because a) I had my camera with me and b) it was SO NICE OUT!!! God, I love it here.

FINALLY, I just wanted to remind you about the GIVEAWAY! You definitely don't want to miss the opportunity to win $50, and there are not many entries yet so you'll have a very good chance of winning! Enter here:

Have a wonderful rest of your day, y'all! Sending love from Charlottesville!

Welcome to my dorm room! I decided to take some indoor pictures to highlight what my life is like on a typical day at UVa--in comfy clothes, accented with jewelry. This outfit's key piece is definitely the white druzy necklace from Charlotte Couture. I've had it for a few weeks now and have worn it nearly every day. I've gotten compliments from random strangers, sisters in my sorority, friends in my dorm, and even professors! When you get that much attention for a necklace, you know it's a keeper! So, to celebrate the start of April, the beginning of Spring/warm weather, and the overwhelming popularity of the white druzy necklace one of you will be lucky enough to win $50 to the Charlotte Couture shop!!

Use the Rafflecopter above, as always. 

Since coming to college,  I've definitely been using accessories a lot more to spice up an outfit. It's easier & more practical than fitting tons of clothing into my dorm room. You should see how much jewelry I have at school with me!! Especially since getting a second piercing in my ear this past summer, I've been extra attracted to ear jewelry. I have a few favorite places to get studs for my second hole--including Fresh Trends body jewelry. Do any of you have additional piercings? I've found high quality, super clean studs necessary to prevent infection. I've definitely used cheaper earrings in my second hole and felt the start of infection as a result. Since then, I've been sticking to the higher quality alternatives. Where are your favorite places? Any brands other than Fresh Trends that I should try?

Next year, once I have my own room and a lot more space in an apartment (YAY) I will certainly be bringing a lot more clothing...but I think my newfound affinity for jewelry will be long-lasting, too.

Back to work for this girl...but make sure you enter the Charlotte Couture giveaway. You won't regret it! :)
