Summer So Far Favourties

 Here are some of my favourite things so far this summer!

DIY: Flower Crowns

I’ve recently discovered the convenience of making flower crowns. Why would I want to spend $30 on one from Urban Outfitters when I could make my own. It doesn’t require sewing or spending lots of money which is a plus!

Here is the easiest and most effective way I’ve found to making them.

– Use an old or new stretchy head band, it shouldn’t be larger than about an inch. Try and make sure the headband will still fit even if it gets a bit tighter because I’ve found glue makes them fit smaller.
– Buy fake flowers from a dollar store
– Detach the fake flowers from the stem and cut off almost all of the stem that is still attached to the flower.
-Use a glue gun to attach the flowers. Place them so that the petals overlap a bit so that when it’s stretched out there won’t be large gaps.
-That’s it!

My Concert Essentials

I’ve actually been to quite a few concerts at locations ranging from the second floor of a building to a stadium. No music festivals (yet) but Taylor’s Swift last concert got pretty crazy. I thought sharing these things would be especially helpful for someone who’s not been to many or maybe someone looking for some wonderful advice.

-Timing: Aim to get there just a bit before the opening act. Running late or being late to a concert is extremely stressful and if you payed $100 for a ticket you might as well see the opening act.
-Closed toe shoes: Once someone ran over my toe, it was just gross.
– Accessories: Sunglasses and a flower crown not practical, you’ll just look cooler (check out my post on DIY flower crowns here)
– A wristlet or just cash: It’s inconvenient to carry around a purse but you know you’ll end up caving to buy the $5 bottle of water
-Hair ties: If you have long hair hair ties are just an essential everyday already.
-A phone with space: If you like taking pictures make sure you  have the space so you’re not forced to delete stuff off your phone half way through.
– A good phone case: If you’re prone to dropping your phone you’re even more likely to drop it at a concert, use a case that protects it.
– SING: It’s the only place socially acceptable to scream song lyrics. I mean you can try it walking down the street but you won’t be judged at a concert.

Spring Style Inspiration: Selena Gomez

I’ve been a fan of Selena Gomez since she was on Wizards of Waverly Place. I’ve always admired her style, even then. I think her casual street style always looks super cute but It must be hard to be photographed constantly! I like how comfortable and bohemian her outfits look. The key elements of these outfits are a white bag, sunglasses, and headbands. I will definitely be taking inspiration from these outfits for spring!

What’s In My Purse

For those that are unaware sharing what is in your purse is a popular thing to do. It actually is kinda strange I guess, but whatever. I don’t carry a purse around everywhere because I have to carry school books and such so I use a backpack. So this is a combination of things actually in my purse and things in my backpack that would be in my purse if I didn’t have to use a backpack (lot of rambling there sorry).

 So ya I kind of always carry tea, a Fruit to Go, and my Menchies (a frozen yogurt store) rewards card everywhere. I’m prepared for any food related situation. I also keep a little wristlet with ID and some money as well as my wallet, gum, lip balm, hair tie,  and sunglasses. I normally have this in my backpack but I always have my agenda/notebook and a USB key. If you’re wondering my purse is from Garage.

Have a great day!
