Magic Knights

This passed Friday XΩ hosted a Father/Daughter event at an Orlando Magic pre-season game. We had so much fun hanging out with all of the dads and watching the Magic play a great game. My dad picked me up at the dorm where we had a quick dinner while I finished getting ready. We drove downtown and met up with all of the girls and their dad's outside the Amway Arena. Hurricane Sandy was passing us in the Atlantic so, of course, the winds were really strong that day. Pictures were still taken, but the majority of us had wind blown hair. Ha! 

We headed inside and sat all together in pretty good seats. We weren't on the floor but it wasn't the nose-bleed seats either. My dad and I decided to take advantage of the $10 concession counter and got some classic popcorn and Dr. Pepper in a souvenir cup. Of course everything was ridiculously overpriced; $14.50 for a chicken sandwich! A CHICKEN SANDWICH! It was a good thing we had already eaten. 

After the game, we were able to head down to the court and take pictures as a group. It was a great experience! I'm so glad my dad was able to make it and that he enjoyed himself! 

We all wanted to match so we could represent the sorority and out team so we all showed up wearing shades of blue, white, and black. I was wearing a top from a boutique in Rouen, France, a denim jacket from Target, "Artist" jeans from American Eagle, and nude flats from Urban Outfitters.

I'm now on Bloglovin!

XΩ "Letter P" Social with ΣΠ!

From Mr. Peanut and Priests to Preschoolers and Pledges, there were so many creative costumes Chi Omega's "Letter P" social with Sigma Pi last night! I wanted to take advantage of my Pink Ladies Jacket I got when I was performing in Grease so I decided to go as a Pink Lady! I went with full 50s style hair and makeup with bouncy curls, that of course went droopy as soon as I stepped off of the bus, and a bright red lip.This was my first "clubbing" experience so everything was new to me. We weren't able to rent out the club completely so there were other people there that weren't apart of our sorority or their fraternity. It kind of made things a bit awkward, at first, but it got better toward the end of the night!

I'm off to a Father/Daughter Magic game tonight! I hope it'll be a lot of fun so look forward to a post on that soon!

So I missed Music Mondays, but luckily we have today for Tuesday Tunes!

This song is by a YouTube sensation; she filmed herself singing on YouTube and now she has a song on the soundtrack to The Hunger Games and this song I'm posting is her first single. Enjoy!

My Week in Photos No. 3

Some fabulous new shoes I bought from ShoeDazzle.com // My first experience at Knights Give Back, a day of volunteering with the school //  The final product of some dolls we were making for girls from Africa and girls of Orlando // How I spend my Saturday nights // Some wonderful tea I made for myself while I watched Halloweentown

Not a very busy week this week so there wasn't very much to capture. It's been a long week though; especially after some horrible things that went down with my professor. I'm glad I got this weekend to lay around and relax, watching movies and sipping tea. But get excited: new episodes of both Once Upon a Time and 666 Park Avenue tonight at 8! 

I hope everyone had a great week!

Color Crush // Oxblood

This fall, there seems to be one color that is all over the place: oxblood. It's been on the runways, on all the blogs and plastered all over the makeup counters. I've fallen in love with this color and I thought I would go searching for some ways you could incorporate it into your wardrobe.

1 / 2
Incorporate oxblood by bringing it in with a cozy sweater or sweater dress. Pairing it with a neutral like black can tone down the color while still helping you look fabulous!
1 / 2
Wearing a pair of awesome oxblood pants helps you keep the colored-pant trend from the summer alive and well! 

1 / 2
Not feeling quite so bold? Bring in this fantastic color with a cute bag or a bold lip!

Here's how you can get the look yourself!

How will you incorporate this color trend into your wardrobe?

Weekend Wishes

Since it's the weekend, I find that I have more time to catch up on the blog posts of my favorite bloggers and my YouTube subscriptions. I catch myself daydreaming about items they have worn or have mentioned and I just need to have them for myself. So here I am on this Friday afternoon, sharing with you some of the items on my wishlist!

Happy Friday! 

My Week in Photos No. 2

Music Mondays

I know this is kind of late but it's still technically Monday where I am. This is a little diddy I heard today for the first time on my way to work. I loved it so much that I had to buy it. As soon as I got out of my car I was on iTunes looking for the song. Of course, I almost paid $1.29 for the ringtone instead of the whole song but, luckily, I wasn't logged in. Phew! 

Happy Monday!

The Perks of Being a Witch

This passed week I decided to take advantage of some of the perks of being a Universal employee. On Sunday my roommate, her friends, and I went to SeaWorld Orlando. It wasn't a very long trip (I had a Chi Omega meeting that afternoon that I couldn't miss) but it was fun either way. Thursday the university was closed for a football game so we thought we would take advantage and head to Universal Orlando and Islands of Adventure! We rode the new ride at Universal Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem and, let me just say, it is SO adorable. The whole thing made me laugh and it was extremely well done. Of course, we went to the Wizarding World and enjoyed some butterbeer and went on all of the rides there, including Forbidden Journey. I went back home Thursday night and I finally got to enjoy a home-cooked meal: Spaghetti! We're heading to my high school's homecoming game tonight, so expect a post from that!
