Fashion Friday #3 and Cork Calender Tutorial

Well, my roommates and I are all settled into our apartment. Phew! And it seems that we're already "in tune" with what the others are wearing.  Upon getting dresses a few days ago, I came out to find the four of us girls all in gray sweaters!  So, we took a picture to document, and although we didn't wear it on Friday, it's still my post for Fashion Friday (:  Because, really, it's too cute not to be.

Aren't they cute?!  Me, Anna, Jacque, and Kendra.

My gray sweater with pink lace and black cami- Nordstrom B.P. department
Jeans- Seven for All Mankind
Headband- Whippy Cakes.  Clearly.  I told you I'm going to wear it everyday.

To learn more about what my style is and such, go here! (:

On another note, a few days ago I did a post on my Bedroom.  I showed you this picture:


Here's a quick and easy tutorial on how I did it!

This is all you need:


A package of square cork boards (Joanne's Fabric), cute fabric, accent ribbon, glue gun, paper and scissors.

Cut out a 1 1/2 inch wide strip of fabric and hot glue it to the edge of the cork.  Then glue the ribbon on the edge of the fabric to hide any sign of fraying.


Cut off the excess fabric and ribbon.  Next, write or type the days of the week.  I hand wrote mine on sketch book paper with a thin sharpie.  Glue it on in a corner or the middle of the fabric strip.


I chose to put my fabric strip and day of the week at a different place on the cork for ever square, just to add some interest.  Here's the finished product next to my shoe calender!


Now I will be totally and completely organized and on-time to everything.  Hopefully

Happy Friday, everyone!

Love and Gray Sweaters & Staying Organized,
