Hi lovies! This week has been super crazy + I have neglected you all :/ I have been studying my butt off for my exam on Friday afternoon -- it is honestly all I have thought about. I am seriously having withdrawls from blogging, pinning, + tweeting! is that even normal? ha Anywho, as you all know I love pretty pictures + words. They always seem to capture exactly what I want to say. Currently...


...I am missing my N. He drove down to see me this past Tuesday + Wednesday & left at 4 am this morning to get to work. bless his heart. I already miss him like crazy & am sad that I won't get to see him until next weekend. & on top of that he will be in the DR on a family vacation so I won't get to talk to him as much. bummer.


...I am relying on coffee to keep me awake. I already had two cups this morning + am already looking forward to my afternoon pit stop to starbees to grab a PSL. god bless coffee.


...focusing on my studies! I have this huge exam tomorrow afternoon & until then this girl will be doing nothing other than studying. I am hoping all this hard work that I have put into this exam will pay off. I really want to be able to relax this weekend & do something for me. Maybe a massage or a mani/pedi is in my near future :]



design darling pen holder c/o Mackenzie Horan | necklace F21 | gucci perfume

PILLOWS | one + two
OFFICE SUPPLIES |  to do list notepad + pink le pens
HOME DECOR | pink vase + ikat tray + gold tray + j. adler horns + tall boxwood topiary

I fell in love with Mackenzie Horan's little blog quite some time ago + not too long after I fell in love with her online boutique. She has everything from accessories to home decor & I seriously want it all. That gold tray up there I have been swooning over for forever & silly me waited way too long + now it is currently sold out. But trust you me, as soon as it comes back in stock this girl will be purchasing. I am also a huge fan of her monogrammed office supplies, especially the pen holder. Mackenzie sent me my very own pen holder + surprised me with my current favorite new pen, the le pen. Honestly, if you haven't tried that pen you are seriously missing out -- so order them, they are fabulous!

Are you currently (wanting) all this fabulous stuff in her shop too?

Happy Wednesday loves!
&& be sure to stop back by this afternoon for a little surprise! you'll be happy you did :]

If you haven't heard of the amazing Joss & Main yet, you have seriously got to check it out. This little site has become my new not so little obsession. I could sit there for hours looking at what all the different curators have to offer & what sales I should NOT partake in because I am broke as a joke. for real! I should have went on a spending freeze like two years ago when I started school. ha Anywho, currently my favorite currator on Joss & Main is the wonderful Stacey Risenmay -- her stuff is just fabulous & her chic + coazy asthetic feel draws me in. & the fact that it is all home decor & there is a pretty new house that will need to be decorated in the future doesnt help! If you have the time check out the site, you might just fall in love!

oh & p.s. I did not make it to the grocery yesterday. BAD ASHLYN! I know I should have went even with all your encouragement, but do not fear I did eat dinner. Stesh can even vouch for me ;) we had like a 2 hour skype date last night, soooooo needed! :] & I managed to get ALOT of my work done yesterday for school. I was productive. GO ME!

oh & don't forget to enter this giveaway to win $75 on your choice of pillows!
