Fuct It

December 9, 2016






Happy Friday, babes! So ready for the weekend. I have completed all of my classes and only 2 final exams separate me from fully enjoying my winter break. It is so weird to think I only have one semester of college left. To be completely honest, I am quite nervous since I do not have an official job lined up yet post-graduation. I plan on applying to a multitude of jobs this winter break. If you guys have any connections..hook a sista up hahaha.

This outfit is reflective of my mood as I finish out my last fall term. I am wearing this Fuct t-shirt that I tied in the center to make it more flattering on since it is a men's shirt. I paired it with this silk cardigan, but to be completely honest it is actually a robe I decided to wear as an outwear piece. Lastly, I just wore a comfortable pair of high-waisted denim and my sock booties.

First Experience with Bullet Journaling

December 7, 2016

What is a Bullet Journal?

You have probably heard of a "bullet journal" (or Bujo for short) before, but if not it is this organizational system developed by Ryder Carroll that has been gaining popularity. It is a journal, planner, diary, log, to-do list, located all-in-one place. I was trying to explain it to my boyfriend and he said,"...So, it basically is a blank journal?". Essentially, yes it is just an empty notebook, but I think that is the beauty of it. You have the opportunity to completely customize this journal and to fill its pages with whatever you desire. I will direct you to the introductory video by the official Bullet Journal website:
 

Who is it designed for?

The Bullet Journal is for anyone. However, it is ideal for people...

  • Who have millions of to-do lists laying around
  • Who struggle to stay organized
  • Who enjoy stationary, journaling, & scrapbooking
  • Who cannot live without their planner
  • Who are seeking a unique creative outlet
  • Who keep a diary
  • Who are patient

What do you need to get started?


To start your own Bujo, the only things you really need are a blank journal and a pen. However, there a couple useful tools that improve the process including: a ruler, pens (ink, glitter, colored, markers), stickers, and washi tape. The journal I am using is the Strathmore softbound drawing journal and I picked it up at Michael's Craft Store.

How to Start a Bujo?

After conducting my research prior to starting my own Bullet Journal, I found the first thing to do is to use the first 3-4 pages to make an index. This will be filled out as you go and is an easy way to keep track of all the content and to use as a quick reference to find a specific page in your journal. Next, I used 3 pages to create a future log by laying out each month in calendar form, so I was able to see an overview of the entire year. The next page I utilized to create the Bullet Journal key (pictured below). These symbols will help keep all of your tasks in check. Following that, I started my December section and began with a monthly log (pictured above). The next page breaks down my week where I am able to jot down all my daily tasks and events. After the weekly log, I dedicated a page to "blog ideas". This is where the beauty of it comes in because you can seriously fill the pages with anything you want/need.


What are some fun Bujo ideas?

Helpful Resources
That concludes my quick overview of Bullet Journaling. My own journal is now only 3 days old, but has been proven to be quite useful already, especially as a student heading into final exam season. The day I started it, I spent a solid 4 hours putting it together, so I do conclude with a slight warning. Bullet Journaling takes a lot of patience and does require some time commitment. but it is a unique way to stay organized and creative.

C.R.E.A.M. $

December 5, 2016







Good morning, fam! How does the weekend manage to slip by so quickly every single time? This past weekend I went out with some friends, nursed a slight hangover, celebrated my mom's birthday, and completed a few shifts at work. What were the highlights of your weekend?

Keri's thrift chronicles continue with this gorgeous genuine leather, suede jacket I found at Impact Thrift Store near my home. It's basically in perfect condition and I am so in love with it. When I pulled it off the rack at the store, I actually visualized this above in my head. I will never grow tired of an all white outfit and this coat just brings it all together. Since I have been thrifting quite a bit more, would you guys want to see a post on my thrifting tips? Do you have any questions?

Wishlist #10: Tis the Season

December 2, 2016
*Click product to shop it!*


Happy Friday, lovelies!! I thought about doing a gift guide for the holiday season, but I was having trouble pulling some products together. I was like who am I to be making a gift guide when I struggle to come up with my own gift ideas for the people I know? Haha. So, instead I decided to put together another wishlist of things I would like for the holidays. I do feel like that is a good way to shop for somebody though. It makes sense to purchase things that you would want to purchase for yourself -- even though the temptation to keep them is going to be real... Anyways, these are things I thought would be good for a holiday party outfit and a few accessories to go with! Enjoy your weekend, babes! 💕
