One of my favorite brands from a young age has been Volcom. Not only are they very fashion forward in a laid-back vibe, Volcom is also known for their unique art and tasteful music.
One thing I really enjoy reading is their blog Volcomunity: Telling her story. There are seven different groups of women who write blogs regularly. Not only are they very interesting to read, it really inspires me to work hard so I could be one of them one day.
Go to thier website and get some inspiration.
Happy Mundane Monday!

For the last couple years i've been shopping at Forever 21, where I can purchase anything from casual to formal. The BEST thing about Forever 21 is you buy everything at a great value. I can also rely on Forever 21 to keep my wardrobe colorful, as well as accessorized.
Forever 21 is where I purchase almost all of my jeans. At such an affordable price (usually $15 or less) I can buy any color, or style and not feel guilty. Most people think these jeans will only last less than a year, BUT i've had most of my jeans for 4 years and they are still good. The only reason I may throw them out is because I'm getting bigger :/.
If you need a quick outfit for an affordable price, Forever 21 is the place to be! Go check their website out here.

Being smaller framed and having a bigger bust is very unfortunate. It is very hard to dress cute or find cute dresses because my bust is too big and my waist is fairly skinny. Here are some two tips for all your women out there with this problem.

This british-born bomb shell is not only a pop artist, she is truly a fashionista. Her bold bob haircut, fierce make-up and unique wardrobe makes her very memorable.
Jessie inspires the young and the old with her powerful lyrics. My favorite song from Jessie is Who You Are. Throughout the last three years my family has been going through a tough time, so when I heard Jessie sing she gave me hope. "Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising, just be true to who you are."

Well, I'm the type of girl that loves to walk down the cosmetics isle when I go to Target or a CVS store. For the last couple years, if I want to buy an affordable lipstick, nail polish, or eyeshadow that won't break the bank I go to the N.Y.C. Cosmetics area.
What I like about N.Y.C. Cosmetics:
- Very affordable (usually under $2)
- Wide range of colors (If you want a hot pink lip just for one night, this is the cosmetic line to trust)
-Not only is it cheap, the quality is good.
- Nail polish dries quickly and lasts long.
So, if you need make-up for any occasion, whether it is for a workday and you want to play up your lips or cheeks, or if you are going out with your girlfriends for the night and want a smokey eye, go out there and buy N.Y.C Cosmetics. You will not be disappointed.

This weekend I went to Kohls and bought some of her clothes. This is what inspired my wardrobe for today (as seen below). Her polka dot chiffon shorts and satin tank was so comfortable to wear at work, especially during the summer when it gets really hot outside. I wore a light cardigan to cover my shoulders and a cute pair of Libby Edelman heels to add a little spark to the outfit.
Not only is lauren known for her clothes, but her writing abilities and her "fresh" look. No wonder I idolize her.
Cheers to Lauren!
I want to make my degree useful by becoming a better blogger and take on the challenge of finding a job before I graduate in December. They say change brings opportunities, I hope they are right.
I would like to use any inspiration from my everyday life and share it with you all, whomever may want to read this.

With all the heat in St Louis, I think it's time to cheers to one of my favorite drinks, a Pomegranate Mojito.
The Pomegranate Mojito is a rum based drink with a little sugar, lime juice, fresh mint leaves, and Pom juice. Pom juice can be expensive, but you only need a small bottle for these. Pm juice can be found in the fresh juice section of your market.
Here's an amazing recipe I got from www.recipegirl.com. It is made for two.
1 Tbs granulated sugar (superfine sugar mixes in more quickly)
1 Tbs fresh lime juice
10 mint leaves
6 Tbs white rum
¼ cup pomegranate juice
soda water and 2 additional mint leaves
1. Combine sugar, lime juice, and mint leaves in a tall glass; mash leaves with the back of a spoon. Mix in rum and Pom juice.
2. Fill two martini glasses with ice. Divide mixed mojitos between the two glasses. Top with a splash of soda water, and garnish with an additional mint leaf.

This weekend Lynsey Porter, Erin de Jesus and myself took a spontaneous trip to the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. We decided to watch Lindenwood University's women's water polo team play in the 2011 Collegiate Club Nationals. It was an amazing time. Due to unlucky weather, there wasn't too much to do in between the games. We were fortunate enough to see the historic football field.

Anyways, last night I saw Fast Five. It was worth the ten dollars and fifty cents to watch this movie. There was action from beginning to end, just what I like. Another plus to watching this movie was all the famous actors like Vin Diesel, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and the lovely Paul Walker.
Here is the storyline from IMDB if you're interested: "Former cop Brian O'Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they've blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he's not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can't separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey... before someone else runs them down first."

Who woke up this to watch this royal event? I didn't... that's what hulu or YouTube is for. :)
At the crack of dawn, Prince William and Kate Middleton got married at London's Westminister Abbey. This event may have costed the British economy over 50 billion dollars. Are they crazy!?Who’s in: the highlights:
The Beckhams - Soccer star and robot fashion icon, David and Victoria Beckham, will tote their brood to Buckingham Palace, after the David and the Prince apparently “got along like a house on fire” during the South African World Cup. That sounds, great, we think.
Guy Richie - Director of thickly accented dialog and ex-husband of Madonna, Guy Richie, owns Prince William’s favorite watering hole, The Punch Bowl. Tip your bartender, you know?Elton John - As a friend of the groom’s mother, Princess Diana, Sir Elton will most definitely be on the guest list. When asked by BBC if he is to perform, John responded, “I will probably be busking outside.” (Busking = performing in a public place, usually for money. English English is hard.”)
Joss Stone - Remember her?Mr. Bean - Otherwise known as Rowan Atkinson.
David Cameron - the current prime ministerTiggy Legge-Bourke - Prince William’s old nanny, with the best potential dog name, ever.
Who’s out: the highlights:
Tony and Cherie Blair - Former British prime minister and wife. Tony notably clashed with the Royal Family on several affairs.
Gordon and Sarah Brown - Former British prime minister and wife. Official reason for rejection: the two were never formally Knights of Garter. Don’t you love the Brits?Barack and Michelle Obama - The American president did not receive an invitation. Sources speculate this is due to the heightened security cost his presence would require.
Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson - Ex-wife of Prince Andrew was the only one in the family who did not get a gold-embossed invitation, sources saying she would stir up too much “drama.”Margaret Thatcher - The former prime minister declined, citing poor health.
When all is said and done, Kate Middleton is still a badass.

Reese has been one of my favorite fashion icons, as she always has a polished look. She knows how to drop in a pop a color, whether it is in her outfit, or her make-up. Reese is known to wear dresses. In an article in in-style she said, "you can make a dress you go-to fashion statement." Dresses are easier to put together rather than a top and a bottom. Whether it's a day dress for the office or a little black dress for the evening, wearing a dress makes fashion sense because you don't have to worry about coordinating clothing. You're free to concentrate on accessories, which can be as simple or as over-the-top as the occasion demands.

After our brief lecture we did an in-class exercise on the "YOU" attitude. Boy did my group start to over think these sentences. Go to this blog by dumb little man on how to Think Less and Get Happy.

After work, I met the class in the library and had a quick tour of where everything was. It wasn't anything new for me, unfortunately. Later, we we went to our classroom in Spellmann and learned how to research our social media topics within Lindenwood Universities website. We got assigned our groups and I am very happy with who I will be working with. All we really talked about in class today was our group topic, which is the use of youtube, Facebook, & Twitter.
