A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of my Favorite Things :: ROAWO Sup.

So this next week is gunna be quite a tough one. I have two tests right off the bat, so I’m using this weekend as ( a little bit ) of a chill / relax weekend before the craziness. I mean, Its a Friday night, I can literally hear the herds of people walking to the bars to be social & have fun, and I’m just laying in my bed with my dog soo…

Anyways.

I’ve rounded up 8 of my favorite things ( my list posts are always so awk with the numbers ) that I love this week, and yes, Drogo made the list. Again.

Little Table Styling :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com Little Table Styling :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com How cuuute is my little convenient table? Its right next to my bedroom door, and basically, I use it as a catch-all for all of my shit ( usually, its a lot more chaotic-looking ). I got the sidetable ( I don’t think its avail anymore, but theres a similar one here ) & frame from World Market, the skull piggy-bank from Gilt, and the acrylic catch-all as a gift ( similar here ).

P.S. These silver bracelets will be a part of my giveaway with Boho Nouveau coming soon! 

Upcoming Interviews on ROAWO :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com Okay. I am, like, INSANELY excited for all of the interviews coming soon to ROAWO. Y’all will dieee over these girls. And luckily for you people :: They are all going to share some of their secrets to greatness with us.

I’ve known most of them for quite awhile now ( I lurve that I have such inspiring & creative friends with passions for things! ), and I cannot wait to feature / publicly appreciate their amazing-ness. Here’s a little sneak-peak for ya:

1. Sarah went to middle- & high-school with me & has always been such a creative spirit. Now, she owns a company called Serendipity Fine Lines & Such. She specializes in hand lettering for weddings, prints, stationary, etc. ( find her Etsy store here ). Cannot wait for y’all to meet her.

2. Lauren is a health / fitness guru & Beach Body rep from Fort Worth, TX ( aka my city / whoop, whoop, go Cowtown ). Since I’ve known her, she’s always been passionate and informative about eating healthy & working out. I mean, this girl is up & on early-morning runs while everyone else is pretty much dying & hungover on the weekends. She’s got her shit together.

3. Baylor is a singer/songwriter ( from Dallas, Texas ) with a reallll talent & passion for her music. She’s gunna give us all the deets on her cool AF life. ALSO, she’s a contestant on the upcoming season of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur. Like, what a badass, right?

4. Meghan is a fellow blogger (owner of Boho Nouveau) from Canada ( !! ) with super-chill personal-style & a wanderlust to match. We got to know each other through planning our soon-to-come Fall giveaway, & I’m pretty much obsessed with her now. Stay tuned to ROAWO to find out alllll about her.

Rachel Zoe Booties :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com These booties by Rachel Zoe are out-of-stock, but you can get a similar look with these ( equally as awesome ). Love the idea of wearing white in the winter / fall… breaking the color “rules” makes me feel all rebellious. (<< This print comes in a sandal as well)

Chicken Tacos !! :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com I took the fillings from my Quinoa-Stuffed Bell Pepper for One, added some grilled chicken, and made some delish tacos ( on corn tortillas, of course ) for lunch yesterday. These flavors are my fav. The fiesta continues !!

BEST Dry Shampoo Ever :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com Lately, I’ve been washing my hair less & less ( it’s not gross, okay. Its actually reaaaally good for your hair to wash less ), so dry shamp has become a necessity. This miracle potion { Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak } is my absolute fav dry shamp out there right now.

Fall Nail Polish Line-Up :: Ramblings Of A Wild One I’m loving these nail polishes for fall. Yeah, pink is all pastel & springy, but I think you can wear this color in the fall as well. Its clean & simple. On the other hand, this burgundy Deborah Lippmann polish in ‘Blood’ and this dark blue/black Essie polish in ‘Licorice’ are deep, dark, & deliciouuuuus colors.

P.S :: The Deb Lip polish is included in my upcoming Fall giveaway with Meghan !!

My first article on Haute Mess Mag !! :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com I already announced my joining the Haute Mess Mag team a few days ago, but I just got sooooo excited when my first article was posted… I gotta talk about it again.

Haute Mess Mag is your online source for a plethora of topics like beauty, fitness, fashion, home decor, cocktails, etc. Kinda like ROAWO, but with more minds behind it.

My first article covers a few of the things I do to ward-off anxiety & stress along with a really short version of my story pertaining to clinical anxiety. I think y’all will love it & the rest of the HMM website! Click on the ‘Contributors‘ page & my picture to see all of my posts!

German Shepherd Dog :: RamblingsOfAWildOne.com And last, but obvi not least, my main man, Drogo. He’s almost 10 months old now, so I’ve been thinking through some first-bday celebration activities. Yeah, he has no fucking clue that he’s turning one, but I do & he’s having a party. Duh.

He’s an 80-pound puppy. And the sweetest boy ever ( despite his looking like a huge, scary monster of a dog ). I am absolutely obsessed with German Shepherds… they are prettty much the most badass & good-looking dog breed, in my opinion. Huskies come in a close second place.

Does anyone have any healthy dog-treat recipes or something like that? He has to have something suuuper tasty to celebrate his first bday.

Welp, that’ll do it for my Fav things this week. I hope y’all like all this shizz as much as I do ( I know you do.. okay? )

I’m off to pin things for like 3 more hours and then go to sleep on this crazy Friday night I have going. College is always sooooo badass & fun, right? …. Not.

Yaaaa, bi.

A Few of my Favorite Things + A Little Promo Code Surprise !!

A Few of my Favorite Things // ROAWO Another favorites post is finally here! Every once-in-awhile I like to share a few of the little things that make me happy, happy, happy. These little parts of my every-day life ( most days ) either make me feel like I’ve really got my shit together / they look pretty and/or they make me a cool, calm, and collected human ( <<< necessary ).

So here’s my most recent collection of simple, every-day favorites:

Healthy Breakfast // A Few of My Favorite Things // ROAWO 1. A Healthy, Homemade Breakfast: I LOVE starting my day with a well-sized, healthy breakfast. For some reason, it just makes me feel clean & organized which is the BEST way to start the day. There’s just something about the good, clean energy that getting up and cooking some bfast gives you… plus it makes my house smell nice and home-y.

Usually, I’ll have something like this :: A mixture of whole-eggs / egg whites with avocado & my homemade salsa on top, blueberries, a glass of green tea, & a big glass of lemon water.

You Musn't  Be Afraid to Sparkle a Little Brighter, Darling // A Few of my Favorite Things // ROAWO A Few of my Favorite Things // ROAWO 2. Daily Inspo Quotes: I am obsessed with words ( probably why I’ve loved every literature class I’ve ever taken )… like really, really obsessed with them. I mean, my Quote Board on Pinterest is ridiculously lengthy ( around 2,500 quotes pinned to date ).

I think what I like the most is how I can read how someone ELSE puts words together and think “wow, that’s EXACTLY how I feel / think!” Because, sometimes, its hard for me to do that myself.  I think its kind of hard for all of us at times… thats what can make communicating so difficult. Communication is SO complex ( << obviously, you can tell I’m really interested in this topic ).

Anyways, so back to my framed inspo: this is the easiest way for me to remind myself every day to be happy / stay inspired. Okay, so the second quote I have pictured is a little aggressive / extreme, but whatever. We all get in those moods where we need a little bit of that. I like to print out my favorite quotes, frame them, and put them around my room for a daily dose of badass-ary.

Fresh Flowers // A Few of My Favorite Things // ROAWO Fresh Flowers // A Few of My Favorite Things // ROAWO 3. Fresh Flowers: They always say every room needs something alive to make it feel right. Enter: flowers. This is SUCH an easy way to brighten up your home. I mean, when is the last time a freshly-cut flower bouquet / plant has ever stressed you out? Pretty much never. Though I’m just a college-kid on a college-budget, I try to pick up some flowers whenever I see some that I must have.

Grocery-store flowers are good ( cheap ) enough for me.

Laptop Skin // Society 6 // ROAWO 4. This “Wanderlust” Laptop Skin from Society6.com: So, if you’ve kept up / ever read ROAWO before, you know I like to travel as much as possible. Obviously, this laptop extra is perfffect for me. I’m kind of in love with it. Plus, I’ve gotten so many compliments, so obviously, its da-bomb.com.

Also, Society6 is one of my FAV online shops for stuff like tech skins / prints / iPhone cases / etc. There are so many options, so theres something for everyone.

Louboutins // A Few of my Favorite Things // ROAWO Louboutins // A Few of my Favorite Things // ROAWO 5. These Christian Louboutin Wooden-Heel Leather Platforms: I mean, can we have a moment of silence for these? I’m known to splurge occasionally on some of my must-have items ( sparingly, of course ) & these were seriously so worth it ( I found a similar pair on eBay here << such a steal ).

But, exactly as expected :: I haven’t worn them yet because I’m too scared to scratch them up / get them dirty. You might be thinking “then whats the point of…” I get it, okay. I’m a crazy freak. I also always get the bottom-protector put on these types of shoes as well :: I don’t like when the red gets all scratchy.. OCD.

Metallic Tats // A Few of My Favorite Things // ROAWO 6. MetallicTats: I am seriously into this trend. First off, I don’t really like wearing a ton of bracelets, because I feel like they just get in my way. So, these are perfect for me. These jewelry-inspired temporary tattoos stay on for 4-6 days and look so, so badass.

MetallicTat is the brand I’m currently working with & I LOVE them! MetallicTat is owned by Leandra Simmons out of Encinitas, CA ( << one of my favorite places ever ) and her designs are fun, unique, and perfect for festivals / parties / a night out / or whatever else.

** The Super exciting part:: Visit MetallicTat on Etsy ( link above ) and use the promo code ROAWO10 at checkout to receive 10% off your order !! **

( I’ve already featured this little bull-skull metallic tattoo here. )

My German Shepherd // A Few of My Favorite Things // ROAWO My German Shepherd // A Few of My Favorite Things // ROAWO 7. My Most Favorite Thing… My German Shep, Drogo: He completes my life, pretty much. Who needs a boyfriend ( or even friends… k no, thats dramatic) when you have the most perfect / sweetest cuddle-bud ever? Most of my day consists of: feeding Drogo / walking Drogo / talking to Drogo like he’s a human & like he’s going to answer me. I have long, sometimes funny, convos with my pup.. like a crazy-dog lady ( yes, he’s not even a real adult-dog yet.. an 80-pound beebus <<< my coined term for “baby” ). Maybe he wants to hear about my day, okay?

But actually, having a dog means someone(thing) will literally think that you are the best person / thing that has ever existed. Ever. You can’t NOT love that. Plus, despite his I-could-eat-you-whole appearance, Drogo is the sweetest & most playful dog ever. Best friends fo life.

So thats it for for now. I’m finally starting to create a posting schedule ( for the last week, I’ve posted almost every day ). Now, I’m going to try to stick to Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

I also wanted to take a sec to thank everyone who has given me such amazing / encouraging feedback about ROAWO. I originally started this whole thing as material for internships and I have gotten SO much more from it:: discounts, promos, & collabs ( <<< so fun, contact me for info @ ramblingsofawildone@yahoo.com ) / connections with people who enjoy the same things that I do / further knowledge in the subjects I’m interested in / a creative outlet to fill my time / etc.

So thanks to everyone who has been soooo cool about it. I really appreciate it. Really.
