Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween everybody! As you know, I am a big fan of costumes, so I find Halloween a very fun holiday. We have made tentative plans to go to a trunk-or-treat tonight at a church near Jeffrey's school, and I'm looking forward to seeing him experience Halloween like only a six-year-old can. I think I might throw a costume together last minute, or I will be a pirate for the third year in a row. Either way, once I finish my AP Music Theory homework (which is inconveniently due online at 11:59pm tonight), I'll get to start prepping for the festivities.

I know I've been a little MIA this month, but I want you to know I've already got some stuff in the works for November! Hopefully I'll get back into the blogging swing-of-things and we can end 2014 with a bang. Wow, I just realized there are only two more months left in 2014! That is such a crazy thought. So much has happened in the last year, everything is swimming in my brain!

Let's toast to a fun, candy-filled weekend... Love you guys!
xoxo,
Ireland

Fifteen // Music Monday

Well, today is a very special day for me... it's my fifteenth birthday! And because of this, I feel I have no choice but to flashback to 2009 and post Taylor Swift's "Fifteen" video.




There is a sweetness about this song that always makes me feel good inside, even when I'm having a rough day. And while my story is a little different from hers, the song is still so relatable and comforting. I love that. And I hope you do too.

xoxo,
Ireland

The World Was Young // Outfit Post



It's hard to believe that it is the 11th and this is only my first post of the month! I have been under so many school-related deadlines that I haven't had time to take outfit pictures or blog lately, but I'm going to be more regular in the future. Starting in May.
 
Just kidding.
 
Sort of.

 
Anyway, for my first formal speech this year on Tuesday, I had to dress "professionally", so I channeled my inner businesswoman and matched my dress to my jacket and my belt to my shoes. When I got to school, my hair was clipped up (as you can see in these pictures), but one of the girls in my theatre class French-braided it for a performance, and I left it up for the rest of the day. I LOVE having my hair braided, and I can't do it myself, so whenever someone offers, I'm like YES.

Happy weekend-ing.

xoxo,

Ireland
