Instagram Life Recap

From time to time I like to give an update on my life by sharing a few of my favorite Instagram pictures. (By the way if you don't follow me you totally should @crumbsandcurls!)  I mentioned the last time I did an update that I was participating in the 100 Happy Days Challenge, which is something I have absolutely loved.  I have about 3 weeks left in the challenge and it has gone by so fast.  It has definitely made me notice the little things in life that make me happy and I encourage everyone do their own 100 Happy Days Challenge!

I was dying to get my hands on this copy of Vogue.  I am a huge Blake Lively fan and am very excited for her new website Preserve.  The article in here is all about her new adventure and has some details about her life with her gorgeous husband.

I've mentioned on here several times that my family moved a few weeks ago, however I don't think I mentioned that with our move came new bedding for me!  I took this picture when I initially set everything up and was so happy with how it all came together.  I love my fluffy pink princess bed!

Recently I started a pen pal-ship with the lovely Jordyn of The Fairy Princess Diaries.  I just love getting snail mail especially because she sends me the prettiest notes around! 

Between my family moving and going back to school I spent a lot of time in different HomeGoods this summer.  On one of my trips I saw this beautiful print and had to snap a picture of it.  It's seriously an addictive place to shop!

I shared this delicious churro fondue with my Mom during a lunch date at Max Brenner in Philadelphia. Max Brenner is the most amazing spot and is known for their amazing chocolate confections; if you are ever near one of their locations you absolutely have to stop by.

I have been wanting to make steamers for years now and this year my Mom made them for my Dad's birthday.  Needless to say I was very excited to dig into this giant bowl of them!  They were absolutely delicious and we ate 100 clams between four people.

I haven't seen one of my best friends in months so we only just got around to giving each other our Christmas presents!  She got me these adorable kitchen accessories from Anthropologie that I cannot wait to use.

I got these magazines while I was in Greece this summer.  I really want to collect international fashion magazines and this is the first addition (I brought it as one magazine in a bundle) to my collection.  What better way to start my collection then with Gisele?

Coco has decided that my bed is actually her bed.  This is her the other night rolling around in my pillows and making a mess of everything.  Thankfully I was getting ready to go to bed and she essentially unmade my bed for me!

To decorate my new room I made these faded sparkle monogram letters that I hung above my bed.  I will have a tutorial up for these some this week!

So this is my Instagram as of late!  You all seriously need to check out 100 Happy Days because it is something you will enjoy, I know I have!  I start classes today so I wanted to wish good luck to everyone going back to school, and tell everyone who isn't going back yet to enjoy their last bits of summer!
