DIY Teabag @Dream A Little Bigger

Does anyone else have a cafe problem? I do. This semester I got stuck having to take classes every day of the week and in doing so I have pretty much wrecked my bank account. Everyday I'd stop at Port City Java or Java Dog for breakfast and a coffee. For the last month or so I've been trying to be more responsible and bring food and drink from home, which is where today's tutorial comes in!

Isn't this tea beautiful? It's "Moonlit Earl Grey" and it has dried cornflowers and bits of orange peel as well. I also have a delicious Creme Brulee I picked up from a tea shop where my bff just got a job (now she has me hooked on trying more and more flavors/blends)

Learn the quick technique to making your own tea bags for on-the-go at Dream A Little Bigger!

Downtown Photography

I've got at least an hour of free time at college every day and I've been taking photography walks around downtown during my breaks. It's been really fun. Here are some of my best shots from my latest semester!

Style Saturday: Purple Haze

Style Saturday's have mostly been outfit themed so far but I want branch out a little bit. Today we're going to talk about the only other beauty aspect I enjoy besides clothes, since I don't wear makeup; I love coloring my hair.

I lost my "dye-ginity" when I was 12. My best friend helped me change my super long, super plain brown hair for the first time since I had tried to cut my own bangs when I was 5 or 6. I was one of those children who was born with features that changed when I grew; I was born with blue eyes and red hair but they both settled on brown about a year or so in. I remember being so confused as a kid looking at my baby pictures and thinking, 'That clearly isn't me." I wanted to see what I would have looked like if my hair had stayed so I chose a warm auburn. I loved it and have been a dye-hard ever since.
