Album of the Week: The Ladder

In preparation of Andrew Belle coming to concert October 23, I've been listening to his second album, The Ladder, a ton! I would recommend it, it's so good!

Jewelry Organization

Okay, so I'm a huge fan of organization. And that also pertains to the little things that sparkle, hang, dangle, and tangle! Organizing jewelry can be really fun and creative, with easy DIY ideas! Here are a few jewelry stands that I love:

This kid is found here.

I love this one! Found here.

So pretty! I love the colors on this kid, found here.

Here are some of the DIY ideas I found, which I would love to try out someday.

Old metal rake as a necklace organizer. You could keep it rusty, or sand it down and spraypaint it a fun color!

Put an old picture frame to good use!

I love this idea! Painted branches on the wall, then pushpins, well, pushed,
into the wall. Then hang necklaces! Love it!

Another personal favorite: shower hooks hung on a towel rack. So fun!

Oh, so cute! A board (I'm assuming), covered with fabric, and cabinet hooks screwed in, to hang dangly earrings on. And you can screw in doorknobs, to hang necklaces. How cute is that?! How do people come up with these ideas? (And why can't I think of any of them?!)

Album of the Week: All Those Pretty Lights

Obsessed with Andrew Belle. This is his first EP, and it is amazing! I highly recommend listening to it! He is playing October 23 in Norman, so I have to start memorizing lyrics to sing along!

I'm Home!

I can't believe it, but I'm finally home! It was a long 9 weeks, but it was wonderful, hard, fun, challenging, and a great experience. I'm glad I went. Here are a few pictures from the summer!

We had a designated weekend off, where we were supposed to bond with our d-group. We decided to go to Disneyworld! We drove six hours to Orlando, and had a fantastic time! We took pictures with Mickey, Belle, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. It was SO much fun.

Having lots of fun at Disney!

D-group ready to go to the Kaleo Rave! I called my sister before we went, and told her what we were going to do. Our conversation went like this:

                                Me: We're having a rave tonight!
                                Mack: A rave? 
                                Me: Yeah! Except it's a Kaleo rave, so there's no
                                       dirty dancing, drugs, or drinking.
                                Mack: So, basically, not a rave.
                                Me: Exactly.

Celebrating the 4th of July with other Kaleo friends!
