I'll be the first to admit, I very rarely read a book from start to finish. It's a bad habit that I need to fix, but I get distracted easily and end up setting books aside, forgetting what page I'm on, and never coming back to it. I have good intentions, but I find myself bored halfway through. Maybe I'm just reading the wrong books?

After picking up #GIRLBOSS by Nasty Gal CEO Sophia Amoruso, I haven't been able to put it down. I'm literally a girl obsessed. In one sitting, I read straight through three chapters...and that number might have been five had I not written this post.


Even with the tired rags-to-riches American Dream story it presents, Amoruso spells out her journey to success with a little extra sass along the way. She turned her eBay vintage sales into a popular online store, and I'm sold. I think I may even finish it (no promises). I'll be sure to do a better book review about it if so.

In any case, it's already inspired me to continue chasing my dreams despite the current state of the union. Post-grad or not, this book is one to check out.

One of the most exciting and stressful times being in college was sorority recruitment. My school hosted deferred recruitment in the spring, as opposed to the traditional fall semester process held at most colleges. As a first year, I stressed for a semester, making sure that my "resumé" would help me get a bid from a sorority.

When it finally arrived, I was frankly overwhelmed by the number of women that I talked to each night, walking from house to house hearing the chants of each sorority urging me to "Go Greek" and whatnot. At the end of the week, I opened up a bid from Alpha Omicron Pi. I couldn't have been more thrilled to run home to my new sisters!

Much to my surprise, job interviews are almost one in the same. Sure, I wasn't welcomed with a group of singing women when I went to interviews, but the process of the interview mirrored the structure of sorority recruitment.



Recruitment takes months to coordinate. Unlike some girls who shared my recruitment experience, I came in prepared, and it made a difference. I knew exactly what I was looking for in a sorority and what I wanted out of it. I knew I wanted a sisterhood and a home-away-from-home, a place that I could grow and be involved, and, most importantly, a place where I could become a leader. Although I kept an open mind, I was sure of what I wanted out of a sorority and was determined to find it.

Landing the perfect job is a lot like that. It takes preparation. It's unlikely that you'll step foot in an interview without knowing about the company, what position you are being interviewed for, and what you're looking for in the job. Just like recruitment, I arrive at interviews with background information and what my expectations are of the position being offered.

Also like recruitment, interviewers want to know all about you. This means being able to give a brief summary of yourself, highlighting accomplishments, and showing what you can bring to the table. Sororities are similar - they want to know what you have to offer to their chapter and what you can contribute. Companies aren't going to hire someone who won't add something to their business, just like sororities are unlikely to extend bids to those who aren't interested in getting involved.

Company culture is an increasingly important factor as well. If your personality and work style doesn't flow with the current team, chances are you won't be happy there. Same with sororities; they're looking for people to call their sisters, women who will mesh well with their chapter. Every house is different, just like every company is different. They're all working to find the one that suits you.

Last but certainly not least, small talk is key. You have to be able to expect the unexpected with both recruitment and interviews. While it's always good to rehearse in advance, there will always be questions that you haven't thought of answering. I laugh now, but that improvisational theater class I took as a freshman always helps here. You always have to be on your toes. Most importantly, you have to be yourself!

While I might not have been invited back to every sorority each night, I also don't always get a call back after interviews. However, I know it will all pay off when I get a job offer I can't refuse - just like when I accepted my bid!

Lilly girls, get excited! The Lilly planners are back and better than ever. The 2014-2015 agendas are now available for pre-order via the Lilly Pulitzer site, scheduled for release in late June. In any case, the agendas come in the cutest prints I've ever seen and, as always, will brighten up the day!

I used a Lilly planner all through college and love their features that help you stay organized but cute! Last year, I went with the Luxe agenda in First Impression. While I'm a little sad that they didn't bring the Luxe back this year, I think they did a great job staying true to classic Lilly while using some of their newer motifs. 

I've shared my favorites from the collection below, but you can view all the prints and sizes here!

Hooray, hooray! My favorite season is upon us - peony season! I've been snatching these up since I first spotted them in the Fresh Market a few weeks ago. I can't get enough of these pretty blooms! I love keeping them on my desk - they smell so nice and are perfectly pink. Blair Waldorf and I have that in common: peonies are definitely my favorite flower!

I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday! I was lucky enough to spend it lounging by the pool with family. Afterwards, my dad grilled up some yummy BBQ. Despite a few thunderstorms, it was a great weekend. I couldn't think of a better way to remember those who have served our country! I've also shared what I wore yesterday below.


What I wore: Lilly Pulitzer dress (old), Target wedges, & necklace (borrowed from my sister)

I'm not really sure who made flamingos a thing, but I'm glad they did! I've been obsessed with them since I was little. I mean, my very first painting featured one of these feathered friends! Not surprisingly, I got a little too excited when they started popping up on dresses, skirts, and handbags.

They're also the inspiration behind my weekly mantra. I often refer to myself as a "flamingo in a flock of pigeons" a la Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. It's comical but so true - sometimes, you just have to be different from the crowd!

My desk space is my home base. I spend a lot of time sitting there, so I wanted it to be functional as well as reflect my personality. After all, I write, blog, and sometimes paint from this space. I might as well be inspired by it!

If you follow my Instagram, I've recently rearranged the everything on my desk, and I couldn't be happier! It's bright and welcoming, and now displays one of my paintings.


If you're looking to enhance your desk space, I've collected a few tips below to help you organize and make it your own!

Keep it simple. - Desks can easily be cluttered by folders or books. Find a place for everything and keep it as clear as possible from any unnecessary objects. Store these in desk drawers or on shelves for easy access!

Make it yours! - Although it's best to keep things to a minimum, adding a few frames, flowers, or trinkets can personalize the space. I like to keep fresh flowers on my desk for a pop of color.

Have a calendar nearby. - Calendars are essential in my opinion! Whether it's a desktop, wall, or mini calendar on your desk, these are great to keep close by for easy planning. I chose this cute Kate Spade calendar to hang above my desk. The pretty watercolors every month are just so fun!

Get creative! - Use unconventional items for storage. For example, I use my favorite ABD You Can't Sit With Us mug to hold my pens. It's cute but functional!

Living an hour away from one of the world's leading tourist destinations has its perks. I mean, heading over to Disney World for the day doesn't require a plane ticket, twelve hour car ride, or even a hotel stay, and I love it.

As a Floridian, I'm pretty much an expert when it comes to handling the parks. I know the what roads to take to avoid traffic, when not to go to Magic Kingdom, and what to do when I'm there. In the fifty plus times that I've hopped aboard the monorail, I've also learned what to wear for a day at the happiest place on earth (no, really, it is!).

If you're like me, style is everything. I love any excuse to dress up! However, Disney World is not a place to rock your new tulle skirt and platform booties. It just isn't. Save those for dinner at the resort hotels, trust.

While I'm a fan of DisneyBound, not all the outfits are sensible enough to wear to the parks. It's common knowledge that Florida gets hot. Like, REALLY hot. And humid, which makes you feel kind of gross and sticky. Ew. Don't even get me started on afternoon thunderstorms!! With this in mind, it's best to be practical when packing for a Disney trip.

Lucky for you, I've hand-picked a winner of an outfit that combines style and comfort. With a little faith, trust, and pixie dust, you'll be on your way to infinity and beyond while looking cute and staying comfy!



Top - J. Crew, Shorts - Rag & Bone, Sandals - Jack Rogers, Backpack - PacSun, Sunglasses - Ray-Ban, Bracelet - Alex and Ani, Ears - Disney Store (sold out online, available at Disney Parks)

Top - Choose something that is airy and light-colored to avoid absorbing heat. This pretty top from J. Crew is just the solution!

Shorts - Avoid dresses or skirts. Again, trust. A classic pair of denim shorts can easily take you from Splash Mountain to Thunder Mountain and back to Cinderella's Castle. Make sure they're an appropriate length, though. After all, you don't want a wardrobe malfunction before posing for a picture with Mickey himself. Awkward.

Sandals - I've worn both tennis shoes and sandals to the parks, but I have to say, my Jacks always win! Whatever shoes you decide to wear, ensure that they're broken in. You don't want a painful blister halfway through the day (been there, done that).

Backpack - Okay, this is my one free "tourist" item. I think backpacks are almost necessary for day-long stays. If you go for a few hours, a crossbody bag will totally make the cut. But, if you plan on staying from opening until the Wishes fireworks, I recommend a backpack to hold your essentials. Plus, it keeps your hands free. I love this lace one from PacSun. Stylish, but functional!

Sunglasses - ESSENTIAL. It's bright! Bring a pair that won't fall off your face and keep them with you at all times. I love these Ray-Ban aviators - so classic and chic.

Jewelry - Keep it minimal. I love this Alex and Ani Disney bracelet for obvious reasons, but these are also great because they won't fall off your wrist. The band is adjustable, so you don't have to worry about losing it getting off a ride.

Mickey (or Minnie) Ears - Okay, I lied. This is definitely another tourist item that you just have to have. They're obnoxious and sparkly and just scream "I AM READY TO MEET THE PRINCESSES!!!" But, really though. There's tons of options, from the classic Mickey ears, which can be embroidered in the parks, to a Minnie Mouse headband, to Princess crowns...it's hard to choose just one! I recommend waiting until you get to the parks to get these vs. ordering online because 1. trying them on in the store is soooo fun and 2. the parks tend to offer more of a selection. These really just take an everyday outfit to the next level, don't you think?

Just a little over a week ago, I nervously walked on stage in front of thousands of people, shook hands with the president of the college, and was ushered into a photo opportunity with my newly received diploma.

I returned to my seat and sat there staring down at this black folder containing my college degree. I thought to myself, now, what? 

I didn't have a plan. I felt like everyone else around me had it all together. My sorority sisters all seemed to be heading off to graduate schools, spending their summers doing research or traveling. Me? I had my bags packed to go back home, hoping that I would figure it all out later.

Now, as I sit here in my room, one that I spent many of nights studying for that AP Government class (jokes), I'm faced with the reality that it's all over. The best four three years of my life went by in a flash, but it's time for me to move on.

I'm so used to having my whole life planned out. I knew what classes I'd be taking next semester, what residence hall I'd be living in, what books I had to read over the summer. Now? It's all up to me to decide, and that's weird. Like, really weird.

If I'm being honest, I'm completely scared about what's next. And, that's okay. It's okay that I don't have a plan. It's okay that I don't have everything figured out. Heck, I'm 21 years old with a world full of opportunities in front of me. While I'm nervous about what the future holds, I know it's going to be okay. It doesn't feel that way right now, but I just know it is.

The best thing for me right now is knowing that God is in control. He has a plan for me (Jeremiah 29:11), and it will happen in His time. I just need to learn to be patient, to keep trying, and to put my complete faith in Him.

Have you ever felt like you didn't have a plan for what's next?

Since I've moved back home, I've been busy unpacking, reorganizing, and redecorating. In the spirit of starting something new (cue Troy and Gabriella), I thought, why not update my blog too?

On a whim, I decided to change the branding of Lucky Day. I've been keeping a secret Pinterest board full of things that I've been inspired by, and I couldn't help but be drawn to the combo of blush pink and gold. It's classy and sophisticated, but still girly and fun!

Don't get me wrong, I still love the shade of aqua that once appeared on here, but I was frankly bored with it. It's a gorgeous color, but it wasn't very "me." I've always been a pink over blue kind of girl, so my blog wasn't really a reflection of what I really love, so I think the new image definitely fits the part.

Below is a snapshot of my inspiration board. Champagne, gold, and soft pinks make such a pretty combination, don't you agree?

I did it! I graduated college. I made it through three years of endless nights in the library studying for impossible exams, writing papers I never thought I could finish, early morning classes fueled by extra shots of espresso, a few lots of late night Domino's orders and Disney movie marathons, laughing (and crying) with sisters who will be with me always, and, through it all, discovering who I really want to be in life. Although it's easy to think that everything is over as I'm leaving my Rollins home, my life has only just begun. I'm excited for new adventures, new places and faces, and most of all, the new opportunities that lie ahead.

Now, for the fun part! I recently had my senior pictures done by Emma Cowart Photography. For those of you who have been following me for a while, she also was the genius behind these stunning Gatsby pictures. If you're in the Orlando area, definitely check her out.

I had the best time with Emma taking these photos around campus. Rollins College is absolutely gorgeous, if I do say so myself, so it was the perfect location. While I'm pretty much obsessed with all the ones she took, I've shared some of my favorites from the session below!












What I wore: First Outfit: Lilly Pulitzer dress, Jack Rogers (similar), Kiel James Patrick bracelet, Kate Spade earrings (old); Second Outfit: Lilly Pulitzer dress and earrings (old), Jack Rogers, Kiel James Patrick bracelet

Congratulations to the class of 2014! We did it!

I made it through three years of endless nights in the library studying for impossible exams, writing papers I never thought I could finish, early morning classes fueled by extra shots of espresso, a few lots of late night Domino's orders and Disney movie marathons, laughing (and crying) with sisters who will be with me always, and, through it all, discovering who I really want to be in life. Although it's easy to think that everything is over as I'm leaving my Rollins home, my life has only just begun. I'm excited for new adventures, new places and faces, and most of all, the new opportunities that lie ahead.

Now, for the fun part! I recently had my senior pictures done by Emma Cowart Photography. For those of you who have been following me for a while, she also was the genius behind these stunning Gatsby pictures. If you're in the Orlando area, definitely check her out.

I had the best time with Emma taking these photos around campus. Rollins College is absolutely gorgeous, if I do say so myself, so it was the perfect location. While I'm pretty much obsessed with all the ones she took, I've shared some of my favorites from the session below!












What I wore: First Outfit: Lilly Pulitzer dress, Jack Rogers (similar), Kiel James Patrick bracelet, Kate Spade earrings (old); Second Outfit: Lilly Pulitzer dress and earrings (old), Jack Rogers, Kiel James Patrick bracelet

Congratulations to the class of 2014! We did it!
