“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire” -Unknown
I just started my final semester of undergrad yesterday and it’s such a surreal feeling. I came across this “unknown” quote on Pinterest recently and thought that it was fitting for anyone who’s in the process of trying to pursue their passion(s) or find the next step on their pathway of life.
Last night, some of Hollywood’s finest hit the red carpet in Beverly Hills, CA at the Beverly Hilton for the 74th Golden Globe Awards. The star-studded red carpet featured some absolutely gorgeous gowns and looks! Today I’m counting down my top ten faves. Enjoy!
Hip hip hooray, it’s here! Today is the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale! Twice a year, Lilly holds a sale on pieces from recent seasons, and it’s my favorite time of the year to buy new Lilly! Honestly, I very rarely pay full price for anything Lilly because I’m working with a college student budget.
I tried waiting to get through the MASSIVE online line this morning, but the site kept crashing. So, I popped on during my lunch break at work to check things out! There are some great goodies this year and I’ve shared all of my faves below.
Back when I first started creating consistent content for Bowtiful Life, back in high school and at the beginning of college, these were always my favorite posts to write. Now, when I go through and read old content, the Wisdom Wednesday posts always stand out to me.
Later this month I will be celebrating my 5 year blogging anniversary.(!!!) It’s truly eye opening to look back at posts from years past and see that although so much has changed, some things have stayed the same. One of these things being my love of quotes, especially optimistic ones. I have a tendency to latch onto them when I find any that I particularly like and today I’m sharing one of my current favorites with you that I found through an author on Instagram, Victoria Erickson.
I found this quote and it resonated so deeply with me that I quickly surrounded myself with it. I wrote it down on a piece of paper and I stuck it onto the mirror that I look into each day when I get dressed, I put it up on my personal (private) Instagram account, I made it the caption of my profile picture on Facebook and I put it in my phone as my home screen so that I could look at it when I’m out an about.
I enveloped myself in these words as a gentle and loving reminder.
I can’t believe that it’s already a brand new year! I thought it was only appropriate to start off my blog posts for 2017 with a brand new playlist. These are some of the songs that I’ve really been loving recently and I hope you end up enjoying them as much as I am! Enjoy!
There’s nothing quite like a bit of bling, rose gold and sequins to kick off the new year! This blazer was a Christmas gift and as soon as I opened it I knew it would be the perfect piece for a NYE look. I paired it with some of my favorite jewelry, some black basics and voilà!
2016 flew by in a blur and 2017 has sounded so far away, until recently!
This year was a bit crazy for me. I met some amazing people, had opportunities to partner with some super cool companies and brands, traveled outside of the USA for the first time in my life, started my last year of college, was the busiest I’ve ever been in my life, and so much more! I’m truly grateful for all of the experiences that 2016 has brought me and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store!
In honor of the coming new year, I picked out some of my favorite blog posts from 2016, one for each month, in an attempt to roughly recap the whirlwind that was 2016.
It’s that time of year… where Nordstrom has a sale! I’ve looked through the entire sale and done all the footwork so you don’t have to, and I’m sharing some of the best deals as well as some of my favorite finds from their half-yearly sale in this post!
These are just a few my all-time faves and I’ve linked more from every category below.
I don’t think I have ever been quite this excited to finish off a semester… This year has been amazing so far, but life has been SO incredibly busy! This past semester I was taking 18 credit hours, working a part-time job, acting as Chi Omega Lambda Mu‘s Marketing Director, interning at a not for profit, keeping the blog and social media up and running, attempting to have a social life, and running on lots of coffee and very little sleep…
With being so busy, the blog didn’t get quite as much attention as usual, but I’m looking forward to having significantly more time to devote to Bowtiful Life over break and in the coming new year! (Who else is in disbelief that 2017 is just around the corner?!?)
