Posting these pictures is breaking my heart right now. I was doing so well with the nice, fancy background photos! Alas, with school taking over, it's difficult to find someone willing and able to spare a few moments in the name of fashion personal style photography.

This is my first time taking the tripod/self timer combination out for a spin, so bear with me. I was a bit iffy about posting today due to the photography quality (focusing the damn thing and finding an empty-ish background in my room have proven to be quite challenging). However, this is one of my favorite outfits I've worn all semester, so I deemed it worthy of your consideration.

Hope everyone agrees and isn't too offended by my lack of camera-focusing skills!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, everyone!

I'm finally back today with a new outfit post! It's been so hard trying to keep up with the blog, for multiple reasons. First of all, school's getting pretty crazy- everyone and their mother decided the next two weeks are perfectly appropriate to throw exams and projects our way, so I'm all over the place trying to study for everything. I'm always taking the maximum credit hours, too, and I work. It's sort of overwhelming at the moment.

Finding someone to take pictures has also been pretty difficult. I feel awkward asking my friends whenever we hang out because it feels like I'd be taking away from that time- also I don't want everyone thinking that's the only reason I want to hang out.
However, I've been working on some non-personal outfit content that hopefully proves to be useful to everybody, so I'll still be updating the blog regularly (maybe just not as idealistically regularly as I had originally planned). 

Thank you for stopping by, even sporadically! I appreciate each and every one of you! 

P.S. This outfit made me feel pretty badass. One of my favorites in a long time.

Lifestyle: Tumblr Style Letters Tutorial.


Hello, everyone!

It's been a while, but I finally took a breather and managed to post this. In my dorm room tour last week, I promised a little tutorial on the letters on my wall, so here goes nothing! This is an easy peasy tutorial, so whenever you're looking for a quick way to spice up your dorm room, look no further:

Step 1: First of all, think about what you want your wall to say. Write out your entire phrase, then figure out how many letters you'll need of each. It's easier than taking each letter as it comes. Mine says "On va s'aimer, On va danser, C'est la vie." It's part of one of the catchiest songs ever! 

Step 2: After you've figured out the number of letters you need, it's time to choose the font. Dafont.com is one of my favorites, because there's a lot of pretty fonts on there. I always choose the ones that say 'Free for personal use."

Step 3: After downloading the font, open up Word and place your paper on top of your laptop screen. Trace the font on the piece of paper that you're putting on the wall. Use the part that will not be shown. Do this only for symmetrical letters, such as O, A, U, etc. 

Step 4: Other letters will come out backwards when you finish cutting them. For those, you should first transcribe the letter onto a white piece of paper, cut that up, then post it on the front part of the piece you'll be using on the wall. Cut your letters out. 

Step 5: Voila! Add some cute lights (these ones are from Target), and you've got yourself some cute new decor. For my letters, I reused an old Lilly Pulitzer planner because I absolutely loved the prints on each month page. 

Let me know if anything doesn't make sense- I'm currently on a special diet of no sleep, and plenty of homework and unhealthy sweets and greasy foods, so I might not be the most eloquent. I still wanted to share my procedure with you guys, though! Now I'm ready to collapse and cuddle with my stuffed animals! Nighty night!

Lifestyle: Dorm Room Tour.



Hi, everyone! Since my outfit posts seem to be going on a bit of a hiatus for lack of photographers, I've decided it would be a good time to try somewhat expanding my YouTube channel, as well as my lifestyle and tutorial type posts. Naturally, I'll be getting back to my beloved outfit posts as soon as I possibly can- I'm just working with more of a mix right now :)

Thank you for stopping by! Let me know what you think about my new dorm room!

Hi, everyone!
I stand here today to bring you another abnormally short post from my new series called "It's only the 3rd day of school and Ada is already burnt out." 'Tis a series involving a lot of drama and excitement--- just kidding. What I'm really trying to say is that it involves a lot of sleep deprivation, overpriced textbooks, and mad amounts of dry shampoo. 

Thanks for hanging in there with me, watching it all unfold!
