My Life Through Instagram

I am instagram crazy. Wait, no – I am instagram insane.

Here’s an update of my life through instagram pictures.

I found myself in a Best Buy bathroom in Fenway the other night with crazy amazing lighting so I took a bathroom mirror selfie. I am def a little embarrassed but a lot happier with how the picture came out so I instagrammed it. via @SamanthaGuarnieri

Lately, I’ve found happiness in hamburger & french fries socks and white leather converse. This was taken last night when I lied in bed for a solid hour with only one shoe on because laziness.


Looking forward to the beautiful autumn week ahead – and the countless landscape pictures I’ll be liking on instagram!


Bringin’ Back the 70s

My Visual Merchandising Professor told my class that the 70s color palette is coming back for Spring 2015, so here I am relaying that information to you.

70s color 9

A very major part of all trends is color. Today I learned that there is even something out there called the “Color Association of the United States” who we can thank for bringing certain colors “in” and “out” depending on season and trend-forecasting. It’s crazy to think that there’s an association just for color, but then again there’s someone out there who makes a living off of naming nail polishes so I guess it’s not that crazy. Back to what I was saying before about the 1970s – when I think 70s I think bell-bottom jeans and shag rugs, which (thank goodness) are not the part of the 1970s designers chose to bring back for Spring 2015, but rather the colors from that groovy decade.

Here’s a poster by Sebastian Nordlund created in (you guessed it!) 1976. This is a prime example of the colors you should be keeping your eye out for the Spring 2015 season.

Bye bye hair.

This is just the first of many changes I plan to make in my life. Not saying I am unhappy with my life at the moment, but I do feel unfulfilled. I want to spend more time on myself and that means a lot more blogging. I love to write and I’ve sort of lost track of that in the past few weeks when I became completely overwhelmed with school work. This forced me to take a step back and look at my life as a whole. This re-evaluation of my life has made me want to become a better person. Again, not saying I view myself as a “bad” person but I do believe there is room for improvement. My first step on the path of changes was donating 10 inches of my hair to locks-of-love. The entire thing was such a terrifyingly invigorating experience. My heart pounded the entire time (three hours to be exact) but I couldn’t stop smiling. I feel like a weight’s been lifted, both literally and figuratively. I am already so happy with the baby steps I’ve been making and happy with where I see myself going.

I know I said that my 19th year of life would be “irrelevant” but perhaps I spoke too soon.
