A Southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. She knows how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC. She picks her battles and fights with the heart of a pit-bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Her mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern belle who could direct an army, loves her momma, and will always be daddy's little girl.

Movin' on Up!

My freshman year I lived on campus in the dorms and last year I lived in the residence that houses all sororities (ASU's form of Greek Row). So this year it was time for a change! As I mentioned, I moved in to my very first apartment this week!

This is the view standing from the back of the room looking out towards the door.

This is the view as seen by standing in the doorway .
Dresser and Mirror. Goodwill $50 total
Bed Frame. Ikea. $90
Duvet. Pottery Barn
Curtains. Ikea. $25
Small Game table. roadside find!

* The dresser, mirror and game table were all painted by me and my Mama to match my room! we love re- vamping old furniture!

Another angle of my room. I am in love with these new colors! They are much more subdued than my previous colors but I think they are still youthful.

This is our lovely living room. I am sorry for the dark picture. We love this spacious area! We have a love-seat coming as well for additional seating but we are happy with how it looks!

Overall, I am very pleased with the way that everything came together! I was a little homesick at first, I will admit, but I love my new apartment. Let me know what you think!


  1. So cute, I love your room and the colors you chose!

  2. I am in love with the colors of your room!!! I love the dresser! Is thrifty furniture shopping not the greatest?!
