Top Instagrams of the Month: November & December 2014

Hey, readers!

So as I’m being a good blogger and planning out posts and graphics for the next few weeks, I realized I made a blogging mistake. Yikes…

I realized I didn’t share with you my top Instagram posts from November and December! 

In the beginning of 2014, I started by sharing my top Instagram posts each month with you to show you what I do when I’m not blogging and how I am living a sparkling life. I realized I forgot both November and December, so without further ado, check out my adventures from November and December from my Instagram account!

November:

I took a selfie and captioned in with a Taylor Swift quote… you know, because darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream. Or just your typical #whitegirl.

I was inducted into Lambda Pi Eta, the national School of Communication honor society, the day after my sorority semi formal.

December: top insta nov 3

And I honored my guardian angel, my daddy, by wishing him a happy birthday. I’m sure he partied it up in Heaven with more cake and cupcakes than words in this post.

December:

My semi date took me to his fraternity’s Christmas themed grab-a-date. Fa la la la la la la

I filmed my last newscast of the semester, as the Entertainment Anchor, with some of my fellow Q30 gals. To check out our last newscast, you can view it on the Q30 website here.

And to celebrate the end of the semester and having to separate from each other for a full four months, my big, little, and g-little all went out to a local Mexican restaurant. Ixtapa had a Christmas tree set up in the corner, so the Bad Girls Club decided to take the opportunity to get a true family Christmas picture. Feliz navi-diamonds!

To see what other adventures I a had in 2014, you can check out the previous posts for January, February, March, April, May, June, July & August, September, and October. Plus, you can stay up to date for 2015’s adventures by following me on Instagram.

Here’s to hoping that 2015 sparkles even more than 2014!

My Monday Musts

Happy Monday,  “Sparkle and Shine” readers!

So this week has been one full of some pretty high highs and a few low lows. However, this is life. What was able to get me through this crazy week was my best friends. So I just wanted to give an incredible shout out to them and remind you readers that your friends can help you get through anything. Pick people to be friends with who will only lift you higher.

So if you are having one of those roller coaster weeks, remember this is a new week. Thanks to Pinterest, I have a new motivational quote to help me get through the week, thanks to the ultra-fabulous Lilly Pulitzer.

And on that happy note, here are this week’s Monday Musts:

1. “Pretty Wild”

So I’ve previously shared with you readers about how I read the biography on “The Bling Ring” and watched the movie, so now I am continuing on my slight obsession with the Burglary Bunch by watching E!’s one season show “Pretty Wild” starring Tess and Alexis, who were members of “The Bling Ring.” The show has a Kardashian like spin on young Hollywood. Except…not exactly. I watch the show on my phone thanks to the Netflix app when I’m at the gym, so it gives me something to do while I’m on the elliptical (since I save “The Carrie Diaries” for when I’m all snuggled up in my bed). The show isn’t on air anymore, but if you are interested in more on “The Bling Ring,” like myself, you must check out “Pretty Wild” on Netflix!

2. Call me “Weather Girl Sami”

 I have more exciting news to share with you, readers! Last week, I told you about how I was appointed Director of Social Enrichment for my sorority. This week, I received more great news! I was selected to be one of the three weather girl’s for my school’s TV station, Q30! This is just the first step in my dreams of being a broadcaster coming true! I am so excited to continue to be taking on the Quinnipiac campus by storm (get it, storm, weather….) And look out, readers, because I will be sharing my weather reports with you in My Monday Musts.

3. A New “Sparkle and Shine” Tradition!

Some of us didn’t get to partake in some Sunday Funday for Superbowl Sunday and were stuck doing work in the library. I took a little break from all my legal research and business law homework (#lawminorproblems) to write a post yesterday! One of my my blogging goals of this year is to let you, my fabulous “Sparkle and Shine” readers, get to know me a little bit more. What better way then through social media?! At the start of each month, I will be posting my top 3 Instagram pictures of each month! Those will be determined based on the number of likes they receive. In case you got caught up in a little something called the Superbowl, here are my Top 3 Instagrams of January 2014! Look for this new monthly tradition at the start of each month. If you can’t wait each month to see my Instagram posts, you can follow me!

Remember that Lilly quote, readers, and have a great week! Keep sparkling!
