Bryn Tries Bullet Journaling - Part 2

It's been a month since I made my bullet journal, and it's been quite an experience so far.  I started it in hopes that I would be able to organize my life even more than I already was and work my crafting skills to turn this into the journal of my dreams.  I've gotten the hang of it in a month, but there are definitely some changes that I want to make for the future.

Twelve Last Minute Cute DIY Halloween Costumes

image via
When I got invited to a Halloween party last year, I had no costume planned.  At the last minute, I threw on a brown dress I had bought the week before, some dark brown wedges, put a red bow in my hair and said I was Clarice (aka Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's gf). Not my best, but it worked for the night, and it was pretty original.  If you are a Halloween costume procrastinator or got invited to a party last minute and have no costume planned, I'm here to give you twelve DIY costumes that you can make in one day using the items in your closet.  You can thank me later.

My Boyfriend Dressed Me For A Week

I wouldn't call myself a style guru, but I like to think that I have some sense of style.  Whenever I feel like I'm not digging my outfit, my boyfriend always comes to the rescue to make me feel better and confident.  He offers some decent style advice, so I decided to see how he views me and my style.  I asked him to dress me for a week, and I was fairly surprised with how it turned out!

October Birchbox Review

This month, I picked the curated box that Birchbox created for its subscribers because there were two certain products that captured my attention and inspired me to pick that box rather than one made specifically for me.  Although I knew the products I was getting for the month, I was still surprised when I opened the box because they weren't what I was expecting.  Did I like them?  Did I hate them?  Find out my ratings for each of these products below!

The Wine Chronicles - Sunday Recap

Hello, everyone! Even though I've had scheduled posts lately, I figured I'd give a little recap of my life for this past week!  I feel like it's been pretty uneventful, even though it's been more eventful than others...  We've been having crappy weather here lately because of a typhoon that was heading toward the PNW.  It's been rainy practically every day, which has made me not a very happy camper, but I enjoy the bits of sunshine I get every now and then!

Sometimes I feel like I'm the Queen of Stressing Out Over Everything.  I'm serious, I will worry about the smallest of things sometimes.  We all need to take a minute out of our busy lives to stop every now and then to relax.  It not only helps our mental and physical health, but it could probably help us live longer, too, tbh.  Here are ten great things you can do to relax because you are too blessed to be stressed.

Decor Love: Peace, Love, and Pineapples

Pineapples have been everywhere lately, and it inspired me to decorate a room around that theme.  I haven't done a Decor Love post in a while, so I thought right now would be a perfect time! Pro-tip:  whenever you want to design a room around one object, it's best to do it in small doses--you never want to overdo it.

All of these items are so great together, and I'm super excited about the sequined pillow!  Check out the pieces below and where to find them!

How to Stay on Top of Your Schoolwork

image via
By now you probably have a good system for homework and studying down, but as the semester goes on, it's harder to maintain and you might end up doing homework later and later at night.  I've found that I always started the semesters out strong and got work done the day they were assigned, but as the weeks progressed, I slacked off more, resulting in me staying up for hours into the night to finish schoolwork.  I know a lot of students face the same predicament, so I made a list of tips for any student who finds they're struggling to keep up with schoolwork. I personally found number 4 to be very helpful when I was in college!
