5 things I'd tell my freshman self

1. Confidence! Girl get some more confidence and do what you want! Embrace what you like, and say what you want to say. Looking back there are times where I could have done something great, but was too scared to actually follow through with it! Limiting yourself is so incredibly toxic, and it is so easy to make a change. Wear, say, do what you want (within reason) and you will be so much happier in the long run.

2. Fake friends. This one is tough, but also very important. You will have friends that make you feel less than, unimportant, and cause you change everything. In your mind these people best thing that has ever happened to you, but on paper it's toxic. Leave the moment you feel ignored. Know your worth and leave, being alone is better than being surrounded by those who make you question yourself.

3. Do more. Give more to the community, and do everything you can to help others. There is no gratification is solely helping yourself. Give whether it's time, money, or even a compliment. You never regret a time you were nice to someone.

4. Sadness over maturity. The next four years you are going to grow so much, and experience so many new experiences. As you mature, you will fall more into yourself and understand your personality. You'll confuse maturity with sadness, and so will others. Just know your interests will change, but people won't and they'll question you on why you're different. Stick to your instincts and don't change because they will come around again.

5. Cherish. Everyone and everything around you is a gift, and quite honestly I am still not sure if you deserve it, but cherish every moment of it regardless. When you feel alone, your friends are there and they understand more than you think. They don't care if you say something weird because they care about you not what you say. Your family was made just for you so cherish every meeting with your grandparents and late night talk with your mom, because these high school moments won't last forever.

Galentines Day Party Ideas

Who doesn't love Galentine's Day?

Answer: No one

I think Galnetines Day is the best day to hang out with friends, and show them how much you appreciate them . To show my appreciation I decided to plan a Galentines party. Everything I ended up buying was super affordable and cute (and probably from Target).

For my tablescape I bought plastic champagne flutes and dipped the rim with sugar. Two raspberries placed in the bottom also gave a nice touch. The napkins on the table are both from Target and were only a dollar for a large stack!

Since this party was last minute I did a few things that really made it seem like a ton of effort and time was spent in the preparation of the party...

1st - Adding a fun print out game to the table shows others that you really though out the night, and the activities 

2nd - adding fresh roses overall makes the table prettier, but also shows you spent time grabbing them

3rd - it's all in the details! adding glitter to the table or small lights can have a huge effect on the overall tone of the decorations

Bows Bows Bows!

 Everything that's old is new again, and that includes bows! This classic look has has found itself in today's trends, and I couldn't be happier about it. The cute velvet ribbon to make these incredibly structured bows is such a cute and unique design. These bows are all over stores, but can very easily be made at home!

Making these bows are super simple, and only take a couple                                                                      
of minutes. 

To make these bows you just need some velvet ribbon, fabric scissors, and hot glue. A six inch piece of fabric will work for the body of the bow, and the rest is up to the preferences of the maker.
