Hello lovelies,
Happy Memorial Day to all of our viewers in the USA! I hope y'all had (or are still having) a magical time tanning by the beach, cooking out, or sitting at home on your computers. Make sure to thank a veteran today for their service. USA USA USA USA

To all of global viewers, today is the first official day of the summer season here in the south. Summer for Cathie and I is just right around the corner, and we are super excited to start posting some summer entries together, so look out for that. Have an amazing day! 
See y'all Wednesday!

Whimsical Weekends: Sailing into the Summer (FINALLY)

Hello there my lovelies!
I'm so sorry I haven't posted anything anything in TWO WEEKS.  Both Cathie and myself have had many last minute tests and projects crammed into our final quarter of this 2012-2013 school year... and we are happy to say that our last day is June 6. 

Anyway, next week is going to be a major challenge for both of us because we have our final two projects to turn in and Algebra and French exams to take (on the same day ughh). This week's "Whimsical Weekends" segment features some helpful tips for the last few weeks of school work and tips to study on the weekend so that your week will be a breeze. :)

Tips For Weekend Studying:
1. Plan for your week. Through out the school year I have absolutely adored my Lilly Pulitzer planner. I especially like to see the monthly calendar so I can plan for my week ahead of time.

2. Study online. Not just any website though, Cathie and I's favorite is "Quizlet". I have just been introduced to it and I have become well... obsessed (ahem, nerd alert). It helped me prepare for my French Test last week that I got a 96 on!!

3. Keep study materials, project assignment sheets, and homework in a Tri-Fold Folder. Mine is from Target and I thought it was quite boring so I decided to put my monogrammed sticker from "For Chic Sake". It's super cute and keeps me super organized. 

4. AVOID STRESS. Okay, this is my biggest struggle. Many times I suffer from majority anxiety issues when stress is involved. Many times, you just have to push through the burden of stress with these rules: 
 1. DO NOT procrastinate (ME)- finish all projects a week in advance of the due date
              2. Read things you enjoy instead of boring text books. I recently discovered Lauren Conrad's  "Style" book at B&N.
3. Relax- meditate, tan, workout, go for a walk- you will feel loads better.
4. Chocolate or Strawberry ice cream. 

That's all for now. Have a lovely weekend. Good Luck my prepsters on your last few weeks before we sail into summer. (Cathie and I also have a slight obsession with sailboats... and whales) 

LOVE, Kira 


Add a Pop of Color

Hi there,
Welcome back to "A Southern Life"! So today, I'm going to be showing y'all how I like to add a touch of color and class to my outfits. I sometimes come to find that my outfit could use a bit more "pizzaz" so my favorite thing in the entire world is accessorizing like crazy here are a few of my favorite pieces. 

All accessories don't have an over the top price here is one I found at an inexpensive price. 

I am completely OBSESSED with this color of yellow for the spring and summer seasons. 

J. Crew Factory never fails to impress. They have the preppiness of the J. Crew store but at the fraction of the cost. Its kind of my addiction to shop there. 

Here is some arm candy that I love to wear with my MK watch. 

My little puppy Lucy wanted to make an appearance on her favorite topic: Accessories!

That's all for now y'all. I will be back for another post on Friday. 
Also be on the look out for more blog posts with accessories.

Love, Kira
