If You Like Starbucks & Makeup....


then today is your lucky day!
But not yet, though.

You're stuck with me for a little bit while I share my friday letters.
Link up with Ashley and share yours!
Let's get at it, shall we?


Dear California, I get to explore you next week. NEXT WEEK. I'm going to say HOLLA for that and I don't even care how lame I sound. Dear new studded loafers {from urbanog}, you are my favorite pair of shoes right now. You are so comfortable and fun! I know that you love them, too. ;) Dear lonesome tomato from our tomato plant, you are the only thing I grew this year. Besides some basil and a little bit of cilantro. I haven't gotten a hang of this 'green thumb' thing yet. Dear Rocky, when you were getting a bath last night you literally stood there like a statue. Then, you ran around the house like crazy sliding on your sides to try and dry off quick. It's hilarious. Dear cookies in our lunch room, I found it to be just cruel to see you sitting there but with a sign on you that said, "do not eat". Luckily, my coworker let me sneak one. You were eyeing me down! Dear Mickey D's iced coffee, thank you for my morning fix. Dear Ohio State football, the ESPN special (training days) that has been on this week has me SO pumped up. One more week until you are here! Dear Zara bib necklace, I cannot wait until you arrive in the mail. I'm a little bit obsessed with you. Dear husband, I'm excited to spend the weekend with you just laying low and getting our favorite breakfast tomorrow. It is so nice to have you home and thank you for waiting until after you got home to tell me about the creepy man who has been sneaking in girls houses and watching them sleep. However, I'm still extremely freaked out by this. Dear readers, if you like Starbucks, Too Faced Makeup, scarves, and other amazeball things - you should read below and go say hello to the cutie below on her blog. 


No, not me {Go Bucks!}...

keep reading!

Hey guys! I love Katie's blog and she is hilarious!
My name is Arielle,


And I blog over @ Gracefully Southern .


I'm a twenty something Florida girl trying to find her place as a smart part of this big world! I have a penchant for Gator football (less then 2 weeks before game day!), the South, traveling, big hair, lipgloss and diet coke. From my love of any and everything girly to the fun adventures I will always remember, I hope my blog will serve as a revolving reminder of this crazy but beautiful life! And in all I do I hope to remain, Gracefully Southern.

I am about to start my senior year at the University of Florida. Go Gators! 


Here is a little snap shot into my life!



I LOVE my dog, Moose.




Twin sister, Kendra and me
