Dressing for Fall in Florida

Dressing for Fall in Florida

I’m not one to usually sport a crop top, but I have been loving this new grey one! Today in Florida it’s just getting over a cold front, so it’s not cold but not quite sweltering out.
On days like today it’s great to wear shorts and a crop top, but just bring along a light jacket in case it gets chilly!

The Talkin’ Monkeys Project Video

As some of you may know from my previous post (here), I have been volunteering at a non profit monkey sanctuary in Clewiston, Florida called The Talkin’ Monkeys Project.

As part of graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University, we are required to perform a certain amount of community service hours as well as create a project to showcase what services we have been performing for these places. So without further waiting, here is the video my group created for our final project. Hope you enjoy!

Talkin’ Monkeys Project

Talkin’ Monkeys Project

A part of graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University is volunteering for 100hours at a non profit organization. As a transfer student I am only required 40, but today I found the place I will be acquiring all 40 hours, plus some!
There is this amazing project called The Talkin’ Monkeys, and they are literally doing such a awesome things for these animals.

A few of the primates here were saved from horrible, abusive homes, and now live in an amazing sanctuary where they are well looked after 24/7.

Today was only orientation so we did not do too much interactive activities, but I am looking forward to spending many hours here.

A Hearty Breakfast for the Unskilled Chef

A Hearty Breakfast for the Unskilled Chef

As a full time college student I am short on time, so cooking full out meals is not really an option for most days. This year was the first year I found myself having a full kitchen while at school so I have had to learn to fend for myself and go grocery shopping. It is great being able to make your own foods, but somedays you just do not have the time and patience, or even skill, to make a home cooked meal.

My breakfasts are usually quick and easy, and I try to get in a nice hearty meal for breakfast to fuel me for my long day.

A recent new favorite breakfast of mine involves NO COOKING at all, which is great and quick! If you happen to just be an atrocious cooker and even burn your toast, than the toasted bagel may not be an option for you. ;P

Today I moved into my new apartment on campus at FGCU. It was pretty much an all day event, but I am finally settled in and everything is looking great! Not to mention our apartment sits right by a beautiful lake, for an on campus apartment I am very pleased.
I am a transfer student (junior) so this Monday will be my first day as the new girl on campus. Let’s see how It goes!

Something New & Something Blue

Something New & Something Blue

I will be moving back to school next week so today my mother and I went to Hobby Lobby, Home Goods and a few other shops to pick up some cute room decorations.

It seems like every year I always follow a new theme. Last year was pink and glittery. But I have moved onto the more beachy colors!

Stripes are always pretty! This is my favorite flower/vase combination.
