C. is for College!…….Bags!!

25 Aug

Ok, so last week I went and toured my college campus again, where I will live in the next month, yay :), and I saw the absolute coolest backpack I have ever seen! But, when I asked my mom what she thought she said that college girls don’t carry backpacks.  Now as a person who has pack-muled (yes I used an animal as a verb) a ten pound backpack home every night for at least eight years I was astonished that my next four years will not include backpacks!! However, I took the advice because I have never been a college student before and I left the beautiful bookbag behind 😦

Heres a link if you want to check out the one that got away,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1525&bih=655&wrapid=tljp1314316609251028&q=dakine+prom+lacey&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=14677239124526562844&sa=X&ei=YOFWTsaqJpTksQLE4Mm2DA&sqi=2&ved=0CFYQ8wIwAQ#

So, now I have a collection of AMAZING collegey bags. Here they are!


It is from the Stephanie Dawn Collection and is called "On Holiday" the color is Electric Spice. I love it it's fun and bright and the inside lining is lime green! It is like an upgraded duffel bag and it will be perfect for when I go back home for visits!

The second bag is also part of Brandy J Collection and it is completely padded on the inside and has a pocket that fits my 15” laptop.  I think that it is fun but still kind of businessy. 

Brandy J Collection "In Transit" Color: Toasted Plum

 Bag 3 is a college version of a backpack (I guess) it is from Vera Bradly I got it as a graduation present it is a messenger bag in the color “Loves Me” it is bright and fun and way different than my other bags or clothes Im not usually a pink person, but this bag is so cute and it grew on me.

So Cute!

 My final bag for this post is another messenger bag from the Stephsnie Dawn Collection (The daughter collection of Brandy J) It is still colorful and has a paisley pattern and has orange which I love, but this is a much more serious collegey bag.

A serious, thinker face for such a serious bag haha. This is what all college students look like when they are thinking....right?

 I guess this is better thsn bsckpscks 🙂 Hey, you gotta move on sometime!


N. For New Blog and NAILS!

30 Jul

Hey, this is my first blog post on my new blog, life.A.toZ. I obviously need to get to know WordPress a lot better and I plan on doing just that! On my blog I plan on bringing any random and interesting thing that pops in my mind.  For now, I am going to be reviewing and recommending Books, Movies, and Music.  Also I will be posting dream interpretations and some of my nutty, nutball dreams. But, for my first post I decided to keep things fun and classic.  When I think classic one of the first things that comes to mind?…………PACMAN!

Totally fun and cute! Bring back this phenomenon with nail polish!

 How to: Use the bold and traditional colors to make the ghosts! Paint the entire nail and wait until it dries completely.  Then, use a toothpick dipped in white nail polish to make the eyeball, or a white-out pen would also work.  Next, you use another toothpick dipped in black nail polish to make the pupil. On the Pacman nail, it is easiest, for me, to pain the whole nail yellow….wait until dry…..paint the bottom third of nail black right over the yellow….wait until dry. Then using black and the toothpick again make a black triangle for the mouth and make the dot for the eye! TahDa!!! Pacman nails! If you aren’t quite ready to practice on your nail, you can practice by painting on a sheet of paper just like you would on the nail, this helps if you are not comfortable using the toothpick yet.

These nails are fun and cute, but most importantly they are sure to get noticed and start conversation, because who doesn’t love Pacman!!
