It's My Birthday!! I'm Officially 20!

Hey everyone! Just wanted to check in to let you all know that i'm officially 20!  It's crazy how time flies, I feel like just yesterday I was turning 16. I've had a pretty nice/relaxing birthday so far. My mom gave me an Instax Mini camera for my birthday, which I had been wanting for a while!! I can't wait to start using it and take a lot of photos. Late I'm going to dinner later with family and then having cake, I can't wait!!
Now you all get to see a photo of "little Sabrina," back when I was chubby and had a bowl cut. Oh how things have changed ;)
Well, I'm off! I'll check back in tomorrow :).

It's Almost My Birthday!...19 Before 20 Recap

Hey everyone! So it's almost my birthday. (I turn 20 on April 16th!). Last year on my birthday I posted a goal list of a few things that I wanted to accomplish before I turned 20. You can read the post from last year here. I had so much fun looking back on the list and seeing things that I've accomplished. In the list below, I crossed out the things that I feel like I've accomplished best.

A few things in detail:

Get a Tattoo: I didn't get just one tattoo, but two! A coffee cup tattoo and an arrow tattoo. I plan on getting many more tattoos in the future, I have so many ideas/

Go to a Concert: In September I saw Local Natives and then in the beginning of this semester (spring) I finally was able to see Tegan and Sara, and they were amazing!

Start up an Etsy Shop: This one makes me feel so accomplished. I started up my graphic design Etsy shop over the summer and it was one of the best decision's I decided I've made. Not only is it a good source of income while I'm in school (because let's get serious, I can't make money blogging all day), but I was also able to learn so much about Photoshop, blog design, graphic design, etc, during the process.

Develop Personal Style: In the past year, I really feel like I grew up a lot and became my own person. I feel a lot older and more mature than I did a year ago. I think I found my own personal style, two of my favorite outfit posts include What I Wore : My Favorite New Boots / What I Wore : Black and White is Best

Celebrate Halloween: I dressed up this year!! I was a gothic/skeleton/girl type thing. The best part was that I wore a blonde wig, lol! I had so much fun dressing up. I tried to go to the Village Halloween Parade with a few friends but we ended up just wandering around the city and getting frozen yogurt because it was so crowded near the parade.

I can't believe that I'll be turning another year older soon, time really does fly!

What I Wore : Spring Break in PA

Hey everyone! Since it's officially spring I've been wanting to brighten up my wardrobe a bit. I have a bad habit of wearing black and other dark colors almost every day. I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone and wear more bright pieces this spring/summer. 

So I'm officially on spring break for the next week! My school decided to have spring break over Easter this year, which resulted in a very late break. A lot of my friends who I've talked to have already had spring break at their colleges weeks ago. All I can say is that this was a much needed break! I have a lot of work to still get done, but I'm looking forward to relaxing. I came home to PA today and I'm going to be home until after Easter. When I get back to nyc, the semester is going to fly by and be over before I know it. I'm already excited for summer :).

A Few New Things from My Etsy Shop...

Hey everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that I've added a few new templates to my Etsy shop, One City Owl Designs. If you're looking for a new look for your blog, be sure to check out my templates. In addition to the current templates that I have listed at the moment, I'm also working on adding new three column blog templates to the shop, so those will be up fairly soon.

I'm going home to PA for spring break this Saturday and I'm so excited! My school's spring break is over Easter for some reason, and as a result it's a lot later than other colleges. I was originally going to stay in the city for most of my spring break, but things have changed and I realized that I needed a break from the craziness. I can't wait because it will be a lot easier to take new outfit photos! Also, my birthday is coming up this month, on the 16th, and I'll be turning 20, which is another thing to look forward to!

7 DIY Projects for Spring

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share a few "spring-inspired" DIY projects today. The weather is beginning to get a little nicer here in New York and it's been putting me in such a good/inspired mood.

Oh, and I have good news! I just found out yesterday that I was accepted in the Communication Design major at my school. For those of you who don't already know, I'm currently majoring in Advertising and Marketing, and although it seems like a useful degree, it's not really for me. I can't wait to finally be doing something more creative! Communication design is a foundation degree so after a year of that I can go into either packaging design, graphic design, advertising design, etc, for my Bachelor's degree. I can't even begin to explain how excited I am. I had to submit an art portfolio and a three part art test when I applied and I was so nervous that I wouldn't be accepted. Now I'm just relieved and I can't wait for next semester!! You can tell I'm excited, right? :)
