The Sunday Six, no. 01

enterpreneur, fashion, fashion blog, writing

I have been in such a giddy mood all day. Perhaps it’s the fact that Meghan Trainor graced the March issue of Seventeen magazine (who doesn’t love her rockin’ confidence and super catchy lyrics?). Or maybe it’s the fact that I bought two boxes of Thin Mints today (more about that later in this post!). Whatever it is, I can’t contain it anymore, and so I’m going to spread the joy with you. Here are a few things that have me smiling today! 1. COLLEGE. I am currently a senior in high school and I cannot wait to get out of my sleepy little small town and head into the big world. While I should probably be filling out scholarship apps right now (Shh! That’s what I told my mom I was doing on the computer!), I am super duper excited to announce to my lovely readers that I have finally finally finally decided on a major. I want to major in Communications. And I want to be a fashion journalist. And I want to live in an apartment. And I want to decorate the apartment to look like Kate Spade and Taylor Swift had a dance party and baked cupcakes and threw confetti and then handed me the keys. 2. SENIOR PICTURES. I take mine in exactly a week and I am freaking. Out. To go along with my whole fashion journalism theme, I’m going to take a ton of fashion magazines and take pictures with the spreads. I also will be taking pictures with a 1960’s Jeep! I’ll be sure and share a few photos with you guys when I get the proofs. 3. RUSH. With the occurrence of the whole college transition, I’m super excited to be able to finally join a sorority. Many women in my family are alumnae and have nothing but positive memories. In fact, my mom was a Zeta Tau Alpha and I grew up reading her Themis magazines. My college’s Rush Week applications open up in less than two months! *screams internally* 4. TENNIS. Something you may not know about me is that I absolutely love the sport of tennis. Do I have fun playing it? Absolutely! Am I actually any good at the sport? Absolutely not! However, tennis is a great sport to learn as you can play it at any point in your life. Tennis season just began at my school, which means I get to skip every single Friday for the next six weeks to go to tournaments! Goodbye AP Bio, hello cute tennis skirts. 5. CAMERA. My birthday was a few weeks ago. As a present for myself, I went on Amazon and found a great deal on a Canon DSLR. I’ve been wanting one for years and finally got one! This package came with not only the camera, but a tripod, several lenses and filters, and a fancy travel case. I hope to not only take some awesome tennis action shots, but be able to share fashionable images with you. Wish me luck! 6. THIN MINT CAKE POPS. I saved the best for last! When I arrived at the grocery store today, I was approached by some lovely Girl Scouts and their oh-so-delicious boxes of cookies. Naturally, I “forgot” my incident on Fat Tuesday this week when I ate an entire box of Lemonades by myself in under twenty minutes. Anyways, I figured I would hope that the thin mints lived up to their name and made me slimmer. I rushed home as soon as I could and decided: hey! Why stop at eating an entire box of cookies when I could torture myself even more and make cake pops? I found a recipe from Kristan and I could not be more excited to share this amazing recipe with you! Have a fabulous week, loves! xoxo, Samantha Ann
