January|February|March on Instagram

It's no secret that I absolutely love Instagram (find me at @crumbsandcurls!).  Two weeks ago I talked all about what I do to my pictures before they actually make it on Instagram (you can find that here), which I have a lot of fun with.  I figured though that since now you know what goes into my Insta pics it would be fun to do a recap - especially since I haven't done one in a while.  Today I have for you my favorite pictures from the last 3 months!  

[Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for an Instagram link up!]

My January started with Sorority Recruitment.  At Villanova freshmen aren't allowed to rush a sorority until second semester so we have our big recruitment in January, a week before school starts back up for the Spring Semester.  During rush we have assigned outfits for each day so we all coordinate (which I think is so cute!) and for the third day we wear red dresses and nude heels.  Last year my friend Maggie and I got the same red dress, but never got a picture so we made a point to get one this year.

Towards the end of the month was my 23rd Birthday.  Unfortunately I had the flu on my actual birthday so I landed up celebrating it the weekend after.  To celebrate my friends and I went to a delicious Asian-fusion restaurant near school.  In total there were about fifteen of us and I had such a good time!

I used my birthday money to get a Clarisonic Mia 3 v I am obsessed with it!  I am planning on doing a review on it soon because I love it so so so much and highly recommend it.

The last 3 months were filled with lots of basketball - thankfully it's my favorite sport!  This picture is my friends and me at the Villanova/Georgetown basketball game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.  The student section is right up against the court and if you leave the tailgate a little early you can sit so close to it.  I will definitely miss these seats when I graduate!

I finally found cinnamon buns that I could have with all of my food allergies, which was no easy task. However I of course I can't remember the name of who makes them now, but they were delicious and too cute not to take a picture of.

I've mentioned on here before that my sister is in Alpha Gamma Delta at her school too, which I love! It's so much fun being sorority sisters with your biological sister.  She came over a few weeks ago to get dinner and we decided we needed to wear letters and take a picture.

This is a #throwbackthursday picture from when I was in high school.  For my first job I worked at a small boutique as a sales associate and would model for their ads too!  It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot from that job.  I can't believe that this was taken 8 years ago; I love how long my hair was at that time and I'm feeling inspired to grow it out again.

When I made these Peeps crayons I just had to take some pictures of the colorful crayons before I broke them up.  I used Crayola crayons because they are my favorite, but someone told me that you have to use the Crayola crayons when making the bunny crayons because they tried a different brand and it didn't come out right.  I recommend using the Crayola 64 Count Box for any of your crayon needs! 

I had my mom snap this picture before I left to come back to school after being home on Spring Break for the week.  When I was in high school I was really sick and couldn't actually go to school, my parents got Coco for me when I was sixteen to keep me company while they were at work during the day.  I can honestly say that that was the best thing they ever did, but I do miss her so much now when I'm at school.  Whenever I come home we have a whole little routine that includes lots of love and snuggles.

I landed up having to go home for a weekend after Spring Break and got to spend a little more time with this cutie.  That weekend was the Big East Basketball Tournament, which Villanova won!  I took this the second night of the Tournament to show off our school pride.

For March Madness I dyed my hair blue with Garnier Color Styler for this post.  Since I've never touched my hair before with any color I thought it would be fun to post this little teaser on Instagram the night before the post.  I really enjoyed having blue hair for a few days!

This is another #throwbackthursday from high school.  This picture was taken before Senior Prom with one of my best friends from high school and our sisters.  I love looking back at prom photos because I had a great time and my dress was definitely my favorite one I wore during high school.

I got my nails done before Easter and it was my first spring manicure.  Like I said in Thursday's post I'm all about different pastel nail colors for spring, especially mint green like this!

I am a big kid who still has to dye Easter Eggs every year!  This year instead of buying a kit I made my own dye with food coloring that I will be sharing on here next year because it worked so well! The colors were very vibrant and better than any kit I've ever used. 

This is my most recent picture of Coco, in case you can't tell she makes frequent appearances on my Instagram because I'm a crazy dog lady I love her.  She gave me this sassy look while I was packing to come back to school after being home for Easter, needless to say she was not pleased I was leaving her!

So these are my last few months on Instagram in a quick recap.
