Blogtember Challenge- Guilty Pleasures or, #RepublicanGirlProblems

My guilty Pleasure is easily Lilly Pulitzer, even though I  only buy it on sale.  And by sale I mean at her twice yearly #afterpartysale. I love it because it is so nice cherry and bright. It just makes me happy when I wear it. And her clothes are so comfortable and fit me perfectly and I don’t have to hem them, which is a blessing because I am 4’11” so lots of stuff doesn’t fit off the rack

Told ya I have a Tusk In the Sun Obsession. I also have the 2015-2016 agenda. 

Another Guilty Pleasure of mine is watching Harry Potter movies because no one else will watch them with me. This is because i end up quoting the entire movie. Yeah, its bad when you have I believe 5 out of the 8 memorized. 
 And watching CSPAN , hey someone has to do it. And here are some memes about CSPAN and Rand Paul, because he is interesting and has done some cool stuff in the Senate. His whole view of the Federal Reserve and and how there needs to be less regulation is what i believe in. So yeah. I also have all three of his books. 

Blog- Tember Challenge: My Style

My Style

My style
If I had to describe my style I would have to say country Prep. I’m all about those Classics; those things you can throw with a million outfits and still look put together. And by classics I mean: ballet flats, cowboy boots, polo’s, dresses, skirts and a good pair of jeans. 
A recent #OOTD 

My style is definitely classic with a little something thrown in, I am more likely to choose color than a big blingy jewelry piece.  
There’s a lot of styles that I don’t get: pre-tore jeans, crop tops and high- waisted jeans. I have nothing against those I’m just not that kind of girl.

SHOES: I would have to say cowboy boots, Sperry’s and flats are what I live in. Me and shoes do not get a long, once I find a pair that fits I go with it.
Of course when i look for a picture of my boot(s), i can not find one. 
Jewelry: Simpler the better. I am definitely a southern girl when it comes to pearls, I wear them the most often. I’m a big fan of bangles and charm bracelets. AND I LOVE BOWS. #NoShame

Dresses, Skirts, Jeans and Pants: I go through spurts where I’ll just where dresses and skirts every day and then I’ll go to the opposite end and wear pants all the time. Pants and Jeans I love to dress up or down and if I can wear something Lilly, you bet I am. The more color the better. 

Blog-Tember Challenge: Things I am Passionate about

This is an easy question that does not get asked often enough in my opinion. Most of the time people ask what you do for work or what you are studying in college. But without further ado, 1. God 2. Politics 3. Making a difference.
I am passionate about God because I have come to realize he always has a plan and our best interests at heart. He longs to meet us where we are at. And one thing I love about being #Catholic is ADORATION. I love hanging out with Jesus.

Politics is one I bet many people are like “How?” but for me it’s easy. I have always been interested in since high school and ever since I had to live through the 2009 meltdown it has been a large part of my life.  I can also watch CSPAN and enjoy it which I have learned is not a skill that many have. I believe I can use it to help people which is the othe
 I know these are serious so on other side,
 Not serious side I am really passionate about
1.      Harry Potter – Because he is what got me reading and what allowed to escape to another world when I needed.

2.      Lilly Pulitzer – Well this is more borderline obsessive, I love it because her clothes are bright and cherry and it makes even the worse days seem better when I have Lilly on. The prints are amazing and remind me to be happy. And its nice to save my money for something I know is well made and I know I will get a lot of use out of.

3.      Books – This is about the same reason as #1. Im a nerd and I know this and embrace this. My #wishlist has stuff from #thegeekycaldroun and #fandomofthemonth club.
4.      Disney – Well how can anyone not like Disney ?? I actually know of some people, these same people believe I am too old for Disney but I believe otherwise.

5.       College Football, preferably SEC and UGA.-Once football season starts………….Im a very different person. Go DAWGS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Lilly Pulitzer Agenda Preview

I am in love once again with the new Lilly Pulitzer Agendas. I have had two and love them both dearly for keeping me on top of what needs to be done and when. I have always gotten the large but after today I am thinking that I need the extra large for all that I have going on. Mind you , everything I am doing latley seems like to just stay afloat but that’s another story.

Agendas

And the ones in the runnning for me come december are:

letschachapatternLoopy-Lilly-Agenda

If I decide to stick with the size I have right now; which is a large I would get either Loopy or Lets Cha Cha in Blue.

But if I upgrade to the Jumbo I will get my all time favorite pattern TUSK IN THE SUN. And I love the addition of the green elephant.

And here is a picture that highlights all their features. At first I thought that spending $28 on an agenda was crazy. But then I used it and the rest is history.

So what size and print are you thinking of getting? Have you preordered yet? They are available online at the Lilly Website and Lifeguard Press.
