Friday Five

Happy Friday!! This week has been so busy because my Relay for Life event is today! I'm the director of communications for SMU's Relay and we are so excited to finally be having our big event today! We are so close to reaching the $100,000 mark in our fundraising! Fingers crossed that we can make it to our goal of $170,000! All of the money we raise goes directly to the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research and help those who have been affected with cancer.

1. I've had a lot of press recently, all within SMU publications but still pretty cool! I was interviewed for SMU's Fashion Broadcast about fashion photography, SMU's Blog about my experience studying Digital Advertising while having a blog, and I was featured in SMU's second issue of SMU Look Magazine! It's exciting to get to share my blog with the SMU community!

2. Last weekend I got to meet my new puppy (pictured above)!!!! Ellie, our new mini goldendoodle, is the cutest thing ever!! She has an instagram, of course, because she is a #millennial dog. (haha, kidding, but she does have an instagram.) She is so well behaved for only being 12 weeks old. I was surprised she was able to ring the bells hanging on the door to signal she has to go to the bathroom just about every time and she was able to figure out her new treat puzzle in just a few seconds!

3. I can't even tell you guys how much I want to take a ride on a FlyNyon helicopter in NYC! Check out their instagram and try to tell me that isn't the greatest way to see the city!

4. I'm wearing this dress to my sorority's formal tomorrow! It's definitely a bold color and the ruffles are pretty unique but I absolutely love it!

5. I loved Samantha, from Preptista's post about her 4 year blog anniversary! She included a super cute video to mark the milestone on her blog! I always get a little disappointed when other bloggers celebrate their blog anniversary because I don't exactly know when Dash of Serendipity started.  I began on Tumblr (so many years ago! honestly, maybe seven years ago!).  But, my first post on this website was on March 8, 2013! So, should that be my blog's birthday?

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Ellie is adorable. She has the prettiest coat.


  2. I am obsessed with your dress you wore to your formal!! It is beautiful, and I love the color and ruffles.
