All that's on my lust list this time is the Nikon D5200 Digital SLR Camera With 18-55mm VR Lens in Black.  It's a mouth full I know, but it's the professional camera that I have wanted for a while.  It's got everything I have been looking for.  The moveable screen, the great quality lens, the several different settings.. it's beautiful.  So far this is the cheapest one I have found, if you know where to get one for cheaper, please, please, please let me know!












For those of you who don't know, my boyfriend, Omar, is a Marine.  I know what was I thinking right?  Hah, kidding of course.  He is the sweetest and most annoying person I know.  It works somehow.  We've been dating for almost a year so we don't really know anything outside of him being in the military.  His first deployment is in February and is supposed to last about six, or seven, or eight months.  We've discussed a ton of ways to make this work, things to do, things to not do, and I'm not saying that we are experts or anything.  I mean like I said, it's the first deployment.  I just know there are some Do's & Don'ts that will definitely help us get through these next several months.
I downloaded this app, for free, and each month you get 85 4x6 pictures for free delivered straight to your door!  All you have to do is pay for shipping, but that's like what.. $5 max?  Of course you can order more pictures in all sizes (even canvas sizes) and as many pictures as you want you just have to pay.  I take advantage of this every month because it saves me a trip to Wal-Mart for ink or even to print the pictures myself.  If you're a picture hoarder like I am, this is a great app for you to down load!






Omar is getting deployed . . . 
Now I have never been a huge fan of Valentine's Day, but this year was a little bit different.  It's my last weekend with Omar before he deploys.  Now, my plan was to drive up Saturday night and spend the weekend with him, but Friday night I got a lovely surprise when Omar came home to spend an extra night with me.


If anyone knows me knows how bad I've wanted to break into magazines through Teen Vogue and I finally have the opportunity. I could cry. I have been accepted to attend Fashion University in New York City March 13th - 15th! I can't even hide my excitement. I applied on a whim thinking that if I get it than it would be a wonderful experience, but I wasn't getting my hopes up. Less than twenty-four hours I was accepted to attend one of the most prestigious and once in a life time event. March 13th can't come soon enough!




Who else is going!? Message me.





For my birthday, my boyfriend and the crew took me gokarting, but the best part is that everyone dressed up like a character from Mario Kart.  I couldn't stop laughing at how hilarious we looked walking into the gokarting area.  I was obviously Princess Peach and was given a tiara since I was the birthday princess. 

It's my 22nd birthday!

To say that I feel old would be an understatement.  I know 22 is not old, but it sure feels that way.  Two years ago I transferred to a college closer to home.  Four years ago I started college out at VCU. Five years ago I graduated high school.  Eight years ago I started high school.  Ten years ago I was 12 and my brother was 10 and we would play Pokemon together.  Seventeen years ago I played soccer for the first time.  Eighteen Years ago I went to pre-school all by myself.  Twenty-one years ago my parents got married and we went on their honeymoon to the Bahamas.  

So many things have happened, but it feels crazy that twenty-two years have gone by so fast.
For my birthday this year I'm going to dinner with my family and best friends and this weekend... well you'll just have to wait and see.
