It’s that time of year again…. Losing your voice, talking to a million girls, and getting new members for our sorority! This weekend is a very long, tedious process. We have to be there for about six to ten hours each day, and it is very exhausting. However, it’s all worth it in the end. We always end up welcoming an amazing group of girls to Kappa Alpha Theta by the end of recruitment!

Yesterday’s theme was lavender and white (I have NO clothes in lavender so that was a struggle. I wore a washed out sweater that used to be light blue but then turned a pinkish lavender color haha.) One of my sisters painted our KAO letters so beautifully. What do you guys think?

If you have any questions about recruitment and how it works at LMU, please comment below and I will be happy to answer them! I know it’s a lot different here at college with sororities and such. :)

With the release of the Oscar nomination list for 2015, I thought it was perfect timing to share with you guys what I thought of some of the movies.  First and foremost, there’s basically only like five different movies that are nominated for all of the categories, but that always seems to happen.

My favorite: American Sniper.  I know there’s a lot of controversy right now with the idea that it glorifies war, but it was a very good movie.  Everyone in the theater was left silent when the credits rolled.  Bradley Cooper did a phenomenal job playing his role as Chris Kyle, a former American sniper in the war with Iraq.  It’s a jaw-dropping true story and a must see if you haven’t already!

AMERICAN SNIPER

The Theory of Everything.

x900

I walked into this movie not really knowing what the hell it was about, and not going to lie for the first 15 minutes I was sitting there like what the F%$* am I watching….. but then it turned out to be one of my favorite movies this year!  It was a brilliant story about an astro physicist genius who has Lou Gehrigs disease, and the movie focuses on his strong battle against time and illness.  Eddie Redmayne did such a good job getting into full character and captivating the audience.  I definitely recommend seeing this one!  For those of you who did, what did you think?

Other nominees of which I have not yet seen include Boyhood, Foxcatcher, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, Wild, Still Alice, Birdman, Selma, and more.  Have you guys seen and/or recommend I watch any of these?

Senior year is the year of saying ”our last”. We’ve already had our last first day of school our last lambda chi cocktail! Cocktail is one of Lambda Chi’s pre-rush events where each guy brings a date. I borrowed Madison’s dress from ANGL and paired it with my Steve Madden black heels. We all had a great night dancing!!

I’ve never seen so much fabric in my life than the MOOD fabric store in LA. They got in A LOT better fabric in since the last time my mom and I went. We actually found so many gorgeous fabrics that I absolutely cannot wait to see turn into our beautiful pieces. I’m so excited for our clothing brand words cannot even describe! Unfortunately I can’t show you guys a picture of what we picked but you guys will see them soon!

After MOOD we sat down and had lunch at La Boulange, which is an absolute must go-to if you guys are ever in LA on La Brea street. Fresh red sangria with a steak and quinoa salad. Now that’s what I call a lunch!

Do you wanna know when you become an adult? Is it when you turn 18? No. 21? No.  It is when you’re shopping and you instantly have a strong STRONG desire to buy a cheese platter.  Like, what moms do.  I was so in love with this ”H” marble and wood cheese platter from a store called Tabula Rasa in Manhattan Beach that I HAD to get it.  I was with my best friend Amanda, and she surprised me and bought it for me as a late birthday gift!

It will go great with creamy brie, juicy green grapes, and a large glass o’ wine.  I will use it in my future house when I graduate college! Thanks Amanda for my first cool grown up gift.

Hi bloggies :)

WOW I loved all the amazing feedback you guys gave me on my last post.  I really love to write about fashion and celebs, it comes very naturally to me.  I like adding my own personality and wit when I critique outfits, celebs, etc.

SOOO you guys have inspired me to transform my blog.  I want to have a lot more posts similar to the Golden Globe post, where I both critique and admire different outfits, pieces, and all things fashion.  I also want to do other fashion-related posts with ”Steal VS Splurge,” ”Favorite Thing Right Now,” ”Steal Her Style,” and maybe some different hairstyle posts by me!  This is exactly the kind of change I wanted for my blog in 2015.

What do you guys think about all this?  I’m super excited about it because I loved reading all of your comments seeing if you agreed or disagreed with my writing.  Let’s discuss fashion from now on!  But of course I will also still put personal photos :)

Which brings me to this post about Kylie Jenner’s adorable keychains that she is notoriosly known for (besides those extra extra big lips).  I’ve always loved how she carries around her car keys with a big fluffy keychain.  It’s a fashion statement, but let’s be honest it’s going to be so much easier to find your damn car key in your purse. I might get one of my own in faux fur.

Fun Fact: ABout 2-3 times a week people tell me I look like Kylie Jenner. Agree or disagree?

This is her new Fendi keychain that she got for Christmas!

Look, GiGi Hadid has one too!

You can get similar keychains here, here, and here! They are available in faux fur, which is great.

The Golden Globes  couldn’t have happened on a better night: the first night back in LA with all my girlfriends, wine, and more wine.  One of our favorite things to do is gather at one of our houses, watch TV, drink wine, and talk!  So the Golden Globes attendees got their fair dose of our criticism and gossip last night!

There were some drop-dead gorgeous looks last night, while there were also some excruciatingly painful dresses that stood out like crazy.  Take a look!

BEST:

rs_634x1024-150111170238-600-golden-globes-kate-hudsonn-.ls.11115

Kate Hudson.  The absolute winner of the Golden Globes style award.  She looked absolutely stunning in this white Versace gown. Clean, elegant, and very put together.  I also love her ears (girl crush) and she was definitely showing them off last night!

rs_634x1024-150111152011-634.Chrissy-Teigen-Golden-Globes.jl.011115

Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad.  She definitely knew how to wear this dress: rocking a high ponytail and an even better contagious smile!

rs_634x1024-150111162447-600-golden-globes-katie-cassidy-.ls.11115

Katie Cassidy in Mikael D.  Not exactly sure who she is but she looked amazing in this black and white dress.  The silhouette of this dress looks like it was made for her body. She knows she has a great leg and has no problem showing it off.  You go girl!

rs_634x1024-150111162250-634-golden-globes-jennifer-lopez-.ls.11115

JLO looked amazing in this other dress by Zuhair Murad.  The neckline was very flattering on her chest and she picked all the right accessories.  That cape was perfect for the Golden Globes.

WORST:

Okay so I was actually impressed with how the majority of the stars dressed last night, but there were definitely a few that just didn’t make the cut. Like, at all.

rs_634x1024-150111162421-634.Keira-Knightley-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

Keira Knightley in Chanel. Oh. As much as I love her, I need to ask her why.  She’s pregnant, so maybe she was trying on her baby’s future bib?? All I gotta say is Butterfly fly away.  BUT she does look very gorgeous and glowing I have to admit!

rs_634x1024-150111162727-634.Tina-Fey-Golden-Globes.jl.011115

Ladies and gentlemen: the upside down lightbulb! Turn the light off please. Tina Fey in Antonio Berardi.  She definitely could have done better for being the main co-host of the show.

rs_634x1024-150111165012-634.Jennifer-Aniston-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

I was very surprised when I saw this dress on Jennifer Aniston by Saint Laurent.  The sequin halter top made the whole dress very cheap looking and kid-ish.  Love the shoes though, does that count for anything?!

What do you guys think about these dresses?! Do you disagree with any of my comments?

With my Winter Break almost over, it is time to say goodbye to my newly found love… Training Camp Hot Yoga! When I first came home I bought a month pass for Barre classes, and Ive been going ever since!  Barre classes focus on core strength, legs, arms, and butt.  It’s all about toning and keeping your muscles engaged through the entire workout.  It’s one of those workouts that has you shaking all over and dripping with sweat (my favorite kind of workout hehe).

Although I’m leaving this location, I’m planning on trying out Cardio Barre in Santa Monica with my LMU friends.  They found an amazing deal on GroupOn for 10 classes for $50!  Now that’s what I call a deal.

The black and white photo of me was from today after my workout with a freshly roasted coffee in hand.

Today I got something that I’ve wished for for a long long time… I tinted my windows on my car! I finally got to pimp my car out a little. So now I’ll be ridin dirty all around town!

My dad didn’t want me to get it done, because he thought it would ruin the car. He doesn’t know that I actually did it yet but I bet he doesn’t even notice! It was something I wanted and paid for on my own. Even if he does notice, I know he will like it :)

Hi guys!

I keep getting more and more excited about our clothing line!!!! It’s happening, it’s real, and we’ve got the ball rolling. There are a lot of different steps to make in order to create a clothing line, and we’ve only just begun! Today my mom and I drove up to LA to visit Mood Fabrics, where they had THOUSANDS of different amazing fabrics to choose from. We collected a handful of great quality fabrics that go with what we were looking for.

I am beyond excited to show you guys our journey into the fashion world. We already have gorgeous sketches and ideas. I think (and hope) you guys are going to love it. Follow our clothing journey on the blog, and we would love to hear any of your recommendations along the way!

I told you this year was going to be the year of the Montazamis ;)
