I really can't believe that we're already a few days into October! The end of the year always seems to fly by and this year is no exception. I'm almost halfway through the semester and it's hard to believe the official 'midterm' is this Friday! The best part about this time of year is October Break, which starts for me on Thursday and means I'll have some fun activities posted up on here soon. In the meantime I have a recap of my September for you via Instagram pictures. Make sure to follow along to see all of my October fun - @theblushblonde!
My Little studied abroad in France last semester and I
was super jealous missed her so much! I started a collection of international fashion magazines when I went to Greece last summer and she brought me this back to add to it. It was the sweetest gift ever and I was super excited not only to add it to my collection, but because it has one of my favorite models, Karlie Kloss, on the cover!
When I went home for Labor Day Weekend I had a lot of crafting to do because I decided to take on a second Little. Coco loves to be a part of everything I do when I'm home so I pushed two of our dining room chairs together and put her on the one next to me. She was very pleased with this arrangement and after a few minutes she curled up and went to sleep. I'm convinced she thinks she's a person.
The most famous place on Villanova's campus is the St. Thomas of Villanova Church. It's no wonder that it's the main landmark considering how beautiful it is. This was one of the prettiest days of the month and I just happened to be at the church while no one else was around, needless to say I couldn't resist taking a picture. (Also who else is loving that you can do different size Instagram pics now?!)
This is my most adorable new Little! My first Little's Little (so my GLittle) disaffiliated our sorority so it's just been the two of us for a while, which we didn't mind, but we both decided it would be fun to take new littles so our fam doesn't die out. Now I have three little ones (two littles and a glittle) to love and hang out with!
This is my favorite craft that I made for my newest Little! To be honest I'm kind of obsessed with it and I think I'm going to make myself one too and do a tutorial on here. It was pretty easy to make and came out awesome!
I shared this the day I posted my Friday Fall Favorites. I am obsessed with plaid blanket scarves for fall (like this one here) - they'll keep you warm and looking stylish! I also love vampy nails and lips for fall and winter, my favorite lipstick is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipcolor in Black Cherry and my favorite nail polish is OPI Lincoln Park After Dark.
This is my good friend Nick, I met him when I was applying to Villanova and we've been buds ever since. Nick is seriously the nicest person ever and I always love seeing him! My family and I were hanging out with him and his family at the Parent's Weekend Football Game and I was so happy that we got such a good picture since we haven't taken one in a while!
We have this gorgeous historic mansion on campus that is now used for different offices and events. Every Parent's Weekend my Mom and I take a walk over to it and walk all around because it is so beautiful. If you're a history nerd like I am and are interested in the history of this beauty you can read about it here.
I don't get many pictures with my parent's, but I was insistent on getting this snap at their last Parent's Weekend. This was their fifth year coming up for it and I always really look forward to them coming, I really can't believe that this was the official last one. Thankfully we had a great weekend!
I took this the last Sunday in September when I was struggling to get things done. I'm always super lazy on Sunday's and sometimes (like this one) lack motivation. I love this notebook that I got at the HerCampus HerConference this summer and the message on it!
So this was my September in pictures! Come check me out on Instagram (@theblushblonde) and follow along with me to see more of what's here! How was your September?
