2013 In Review

We stood by trees awkwardly...too many to count
We performed at the Naples Phil...five times
We took artsy shots...too many to count
We supported Shalom...all the time

We gave a make-up tutorial...twice
We went to homecoming...twice
We wore floppy hats...twice
We went to Texas...twice
We went to LSU...twice
We drank tea...twice

We drank Starbucks by a fake Eiffel Tower...once
We baked the best cookies ever...once
We had a preppy competition...once
We hung in the SkyLounge...once
We mastered the hair flip...once
We had our last first day...once
We looked like a witch...once
We posed like Gatsby...once
We went to St. Pete...once
We went to prom...once
We made t-shirts...once
We modeled...once
We saw snow...once
We had fun...everyday.

Thank you so much for supporting us in 2013, we cannot wait to take 2014 by storm!

Plane Essentials

Since I will be on a plane very soon (I am so excited to be off to LA!), I thought I'd share my essentials for the plane. 

  • I cannot stress my love of magazines. Above are some of my absolute favorites. They get me through the stress of flying.
  • A really great fleece will make every situation better.
  • Eye masks for long flights are a must!
  • I don't know what I would do without my iPhone full of music!
  • Pretzels are my favorite carry on snack because they're easy and don't need any maintenance. 
  • Super Bubble is my go to for ear pains.
  • Headphones to go along with my iPhone, I usually have Skullcandy.
  • Loafers are perfect for flying because you can slip them off at TSA but you still look stylish---effortless.

Happy Monday!

What to Wear: New Years Eve Edition

With New Years Eve quickly approaching, it is important to choose your outfit carefully. This is the one time of year where it is acceptable to go over the top in sparkles and colors like silver and gold. While my outfit won't look like this (mainly because I don't own any Cartier...) this is something I would enjoy wearing. My outfit choices will be posted in a few days.

Gingerbread House + Southern Living Pie

Christmas is all about gaining a few pounds correct? Well, that certainly happened in our house. We were up Christmas morning decorating gingerbread cookies and making a gingerbread house. My Mama made an amazing banana cream peanut butter pie {here}.

Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes

One of my all time favorite drinks at Starbucks (or anywhere for that matter) is peppermint mocha. I love peppermint any time of year and chocolate coffee is the best thing on this planet. To make these cupcakes all you need is a chocolate cake with a little instant expresso and a peppermint mocha frosting {just add coffee and peppermint extract to a chocolate frosting}. And frost with some holiday sprinkles!

Captiva Boat Parade

A few weeks ago I was able to participate in the Captiva Boat Parade. It was such a fun experience, and I swear we were the loudest, rowdiest boat. Here are some photos:
