     No matter what your political views are - there's nothing political in this post today! I do have some good (neutral) memes on my Twitter from last night though. 

  • A Hoppy Halloween: Above you can see what I went as for Halloween this year! A few months back, a Kmart location here in Charlotte went out of business. I went to browse around during one of their last weeks in business to see if I could find bargains on anything for my apartment. While I did find a few household items, they also had a bunch of last year's Halloween costumes that were majorly on sale, including this bunny suit! Rabbits are my favorite animal so I immediately scooped it up. I didn't do anything crazy for Halloween, but I enjoyed dressing up as the Easter Bunny for broadcasting school and my internship on the day of!
  • A little overwhelmed: The last couple weeks of October felt like an absolute whirlwind for me- especially the weekdays. Throughout the summer I felt like I was able to be pretty productive- I did fairly well with managing broadcasting school, work, blogging, and things around the house like cooking and chores. Anyways- over the past few weeks I have felt constantly like there aren't enough hours in the day. I feel like I haven't been able to give my blog the time and attention that it deserves over the past few weeks.  I'm hoping to be much better at time management in my days or evenings off from school and work leading into the holiday season- any tips for me? :-)
  • THE LIZZIE MCGUIRE MOVIE IS ON NETFLIX: ...I really don't need to say anything else other than that!!! Major PSA!

  • My mom recently surprised me and sent me this beautiful winter coat in the mail! With temperatures getting colder here in NC, I can't wait to wear it soon!
  • The cutest polka dot dress is on its way to me and I'm already too excited to style it.
  • Speaking of holiday party dresses... I already have my NYE dress! I actually bought it before Halloween- how bad is that?! I found mine at the Limited Outlet, but this one is almost identical. 

     Thanks as always for reading!! Stay tuned for a more personal and special post on Friday. :-)
