Playlist No. 18

It might be pathetic, but I have had a recent "re-interest" in One Direction. I know they are "awful" but there is something so catchy about their songs! And honestly Taylor Swift, One Direction, and Disney get me through exam weeks. They are so happy and I cannot stop listening to them. But I also love my indies and we'll get back to those songs in June-xoxo darling, Hayden.

To Do

Formal high school is over. Now it is less than a month till I put all of that in my rearview mirror. Praise! I decided to make a list of things I want to accomplish this summer before I go to college. Hopefully I get to them all & stay tuned-xoxo darling, Hayden.

On My Nails

So back in December when I bought Essie's Toggle to the Top, I was really excited. I was headed to the National Championship and wanted to up my "nail game." Unfortunately, this color looks super pretty in the bottle but when I paint my nails they come out super rough and kind of ugly...despite the number of top coats I put on. In the end it is great to look at but not great to actually use-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Reading List

It is almost summer, I can taste it! I have exactly a week left of formal school and then I start my exams...that is terrifying. However, come May 23rd around four o'clock I will no longer be worried about IB or high school drama. When I think of summer I think plane travel, Italian beaches {although I've never been to one...}, sunnies, and books. Below are some of the books I am either currently reading, are on my request list at my local library, or are about to be put on that list. Any recommendations to add this summer? -xoxo darling, Hayden

  2. Lessons From Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris
  3. The Melancholy Countess
  4. What Would Jackie Do?

Costal Living Summer

I am going to be brutally honest, I am not the biggest fan of Costal Living. I think it focuses too much on houses and table settings and not enough on the actual coast {which Southern Living is starting to do and I am not happy about it!}. However my Mama still brings them home so occasionally I read them. And for some reason, this time I fell in love. Their May issue has so many great things in it that I have cut them out and posted them on my bulletin board.

Weekend Re-Cap

This past week was kind of awesome. I was in school for one day, the rest of the time I relaxed and kind of kept to myself. Here are some photos-xoxo darling, Hayden.

My favorite junior was inducted to Rho Kappa {I'm the president} and since we are the same person we both wore stripes.

The fantastic Taylor Boutelle {here, here, here} at the Rho Kappa induction ceremony.

It was arts and crafts Friday at my house.

Striped picture frames {navy + white}

FGCU inspired picture frame {green + blue}

"That's so rachet!" Painting my nails at a baseball game...

Enjoying a rootbeer float + FGCU baseball with the family.

My graduation announcements were sent out-clad in chevron envelopes!

On My Nails

I realize I have not posted an "On My Nails" in weeks and I apologize. This week I painted them Essie's Naughty Nautical. And to be completely honest I am not in love. The name is amazing but the actual polish doesn't go on real well and it doesn't shine. I do not do matte and I certainly am not okay with a polish that should shine that doesn't. So I probably would only paint my nails this color if I had to...and that is why I did not take a photo with my nails this week. 

 P.S. This was my prom mani and I am obsessed with it...probably because it was my favorite color.

So today I finally figured out how to change my instagram on the blog! So now, instead of seeing my instagram photos across the top of the blog, they are to your right. I think it looks much cleaner this way, however if you liked the old way, let me know-xoxo darling, Hayden.
