April Instagram Roundup

Happy May! Today is a special day for me as it's the day I turn in my senior thesis!! I've been working on this paper for about a year and a half now, and I can't believe it's finally done. I've finished at a little over 45 pages with tons of primary research and am so proud of it. For those of you who don't know, my thesis is about Voodoo in New Orleans and all the rumors about the famous Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau (yes, the character from American Horror Story) as well as her involvement in Catholicism. If that doesn't sound boring to you and you'd like to read it for yourself I would be happy to send it to you. Just shoot me an email! 

In other news, it's time for another Instagram roundup! Woohoo! I love sharing the details of my Instagram posts with y'all, especially the ones with tons of fashion or beauty details. I know some of you don't like to use or don't have it, so I always feel better about sharing everything here as well! 

Both dresses from Marshalls. Similar Pink Dress | Similar Blue Dress

A little blurry, but still worth the post! My sorority had it's annual IRD (International Reunion Day) this past weekend and it was so much fun! I got to hang out with alum, old friends, and current sisters.  Plus, we got free food which is always a plus! Pictured with me is my best friend, roommate, and blog photographer Steph. (P.S. We've known each other since the 3rd grade!)

Just daydreaming about Italy, as per usual.

This super cute spring dress is only $24! Can you believe it?! My favorite thing is the fun pom-poms!

I have been getting back into my reading routine lately and found THE BEST bookstore near my house! All books are only $1 and I've found so many gems including this one from Lauren Conrad!

I received these beauties from Influenster! Although I don't think I'll be wearing that silver lipgloss anytime soon (maybe Halloween?), I will definitely be using this palette regularly!

More of this look will be shown on Instagram later this week! But I was obsessing over this detail shot!

 Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Lipsticks in shades Nuit & Jour, Caprice, Berry Noir, and Rose Lancome Matte

These Lancome lipsticks are so beautiful and the pigments are so strong! Plus they're pretty dang moisturizing, which makes them a winner in my book!

My little adorable easter puppy! If you're just as obsessed with Khaleesi as I am you can follow her on Instagram to see all the trouble she gets into!

Honestly my favorite dress in my closet. It's beyond comfortable and is just so pretty!

Was so excited to test out this foundation from Clinique after it won best foundation and moisturizer in the College Fashionista Beauty Awards!

Still obsessing over this dress from Free People! Don't you just love the embroidery detail?

I'm honestly surprised my whole feed hasn't turned into one big Khaleesi shrine. She is such a photogenic pup!

I love statement necklaces, especially when they're in such bold fun colors like this one from Stella & Dot!

I love this festival style dress from Free People. It's such a fun print for spring!

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday!
