Thank you so much for stopping by The Adored Life. Currently I am a senior, studying strategic communications, graduating spring of 2013. Here you will find my outfits, thoughts on life, rants about school and brags about my wonderful boyfriend. I can be found in bed by 10 p.m., studying, baking or watching television. If I’m not in my closet you can find me in my kitchen trying to perfect my chocolate chip cookie recipe or studying.
Why did I start blogging?
In the spring of 2012 I had just gone through the worst semester of my life. I had horrible experiences with teachers and I couldn't handle the depression that was setting in. I decided to create an online journal as a tool to record my progress throughout the rest of my college days. It started out with just words. Then it became photos and words. Then it suddenly became clothing+words+photos, and here we are today.
I write about what I am passionate about. I believe in being honest and transparent about my views and life to my readers.
What do you do outside of studying?
On most Friday nights you can find me either cuddled up with my boyfriend, baking, exploring my town, exercising and in bed by 10 p.m. I get really, really wild and crazy. I have no idea how college students have the energy to stay up partying till 2 a.m. In reality, I am a college student balancing working and going to school full-time. Really, I’m not that exciting, sorry to disappoint.
My hobbies are: volunteering with Special Olympics, thrifting, reading, exercising, baking, trying to cook the perfect steal, creating the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, photography, trying to not hurt myself (this is a full-time job) and blogging.
What is your style? Preppy? Classic?
All of the above. Just kidding. I prefer to have classic pieces that I can easily accessorize and add fun, seasonal updates. Why? I’m a broke college student and accessories are my best friend. In my dream world I would have the perfect combination of classic, chic, a dash of prep and a hint of the magic Michael Kors has in his designs. Sadly I live in reality, Forever XXI is this girl’s best friend until I get a real job.
I believe firmly that as I grow into who I am, I gain more confidence in the way that I dress. As cliché as it seems, confidence is key to looking your best.
Why “The Adored Life”?
One of my friends and I were discussing my life after several major changes had taken place. She said, “Don’t you just adore life sometimes?” and I realized that was the perfect name. Although life may not all be sunshine and roses but I adore it. I never would have dreamed my life would have turned out the way it has but I also can’t imagine being happier. That is why I adore life.
