Introduction and First Post!

Hi y'all! My name is Emily and this is my blog where I will rant about everything I love, recipes I try to make,  and DIY projects I attempt! I'm getting super into Illustrator, so maybe I'll add a few free downloads as well!

As an introduction, I'll tell you a little about myself:

I'm 20 years old and I go to the University of South Carolina. I'm planning on studying abroad next semester, so expect lots of posts about London, traveling, and Europe in general. If anyone has any tips for living in London or traveling, feel free to leave some comments! Seriously, please help me out here.

I have a shopping problem. I'm coming to terms with it. I haven't been to therapy yet. Maybe I should. I love me some Kate Spade and J. Crew, and the Southern girl in me loves bow ties, seersucker, and pearls. That being said, don't think I look cute all the time. It's sad, but true.



I'm obsessed with weddings. No, I don't have a boyfriend. Yes, it is a little sad. No, I will never stop.

And also jewelry. I'm a bit obsessed, though in real life I usually just stick to my basic studs and the occasional ring and/or bangle. My appreciation for humongous jewelry is definitely in there, though.
