Weekend at the Lake

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | WET Swimwear Bikini at Lake George

Today, I’m freaking out.

Today is my last Monday going to work and really the last true Monday of my #SummerSixteen (I know that was lame but I like the alliteration haha). I will be at home still next Monday, but I'm not counting it because on Tuesday I head up to school so the day before will be filled with organizing, packing, and planning. I am so so excited to go back to school, but it's a weird feeling going back as a senior. I think I'm ready for it?...I think? Half of me wants nothing more than to have already landed a job and be starting out my life in the real world, but the other half of me still feels like freshman year was yesterday and can't believe I'm almost done with the best four years of my life!


Here are some photographs from my weekend trip to Lake George a little while back! The weather was beautiful but only for a little while and after we spent this morning on our boat, we had to hurry up and get changed to go the the horse races in Saratoga.

Pink and Girly Summer Date Night Outfit

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Pink and Girly Summer Date Night Outfit

Pink is my favorite color!

But...I pretty much only wear blacks and neutrals. Every now and then, I find an awesome pink piece that I can add to my wardrobe for flare, but that's about it for color for me haha. With fall coming up, I wanted to show off this end of summer date night outfit because I don't know when the next time I will be able to wear something like this will be, so enjoy! Details linked down below πŸ™‚

Lush Bath

Who here is ready for the weekend??

This weekend I am going up to Lake George with my family and staying in a lakeside cabin! We are bringing our boat and loads of good food, I couldn't be more excited! Being out on the lake at the end of summer is the best thing because you just get the overwhelming feeling that you want to soak every second of sunshine and summer up as much as you can before it's over. At this point in the year I always feel myself making memories as they happen and it's a bitter sweet feeling. The rest of my family is leaving today, but I have to work so I will be heading out at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning and picking up my boyfriend on the way there. It's about a four hour long drive (if I remember correctly) so tonight I plan on preparing by indulging in a bath filled with bath bombs and Lush Bubble Bars.

Treat Yo Self

Who here watches Parks and Recreation???

That show has to be one of my all time favorites, so if you haven't seen every single episode, go do that! I love every single character and all of the subtle, and not so subtle, humor packed into every episode. One of my favorite episodes is when Tom and Donna celebrate "Treat Yo Self Day."

When I saw this bunch of 25 beautiful, long stem, fuchsia roses I could just hear Tom in the back of my mind..."treat yo self," and then I had to haha.

Princess Gigi

True Life: My Dog Is A Princess

If you've been following me on Instagram then you know that this is my puppy, Gigi, and she's the apple of my eye. Gigi is 50% Yorkie, 50% Chihuahua, and 100% Diva. She's a puppy still (3 years old is still a puppy, right?), and she never lets us forget! She is just like a toddler because she can run around and play and be so hyper for hours on end, and then at night she gets sooo super sleepy and snuggles up to whoever is closest to her. The best thing about Gigi is her sweet, affectionate demeanor and how she doesn't choose favorites. She will cuddle up to and kiss all over whoever happens to be nearby at any given time.

Monday Feels

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Monday Feels with Adidas Superstars and Antique Chair

Can you believe the summer is already half over?

You may be thinking that I'm looking at the glass half empty when I say this because everyone loves summer, but no matter how much I love summer, I will never be able to stop missing Syracuse, so I'm actually looking at the glass half full and counting down the days until I can go back to school!! Today I memorized my class schedule and made some plans for what I think my days will look like and when I will be able to get homework, job applications, and blogging done. Fun fun.

I decided that I look rather pensive in all of the photographs, so I wanted to share with you what has been on my mind all day, and on the topic of getting ready to go back to school, I will be discussing what happened to me this weekend and talking to you guys a little bit about stress management and how to deal with difficult situations.
