Letting Go

I apologize in advanced for the string of depressing blog posts. Last post was certainly one of the more down posts I've ever done and this one is likely not to be super uplifting either, however I felt as if it needed to be addressed.

Breakups. My most favorite subject at the moment.

Yes I realize my post a couple of weeks ago is sort of ironic at the moment but I don't want to take it down. I can't seem to bring myself to do it. Maybe eventually I will, but not right now.

Either way, breakups are probably the hardest thing we will go through in our young lives. There is nothing that feels quite like having the person who you were in love with tell you that they don't want to be with you anymore. If you have never felt this pain, I envy you, because it is probably one of the worst pains you can ever go through. It's not like a paper cut that will sting for a while but eventually the pain will dull down. This is a constant ache in your heart that no matter how much you want to just reach inside and rip your heart out for relief, you can't. It's not something that by eating a pint of ben and jerry's ice cream with your girlfriends while watching a sappy chick flick will help either. Only time can heal a broken heart.

I'm not saying I'm an expert by any means, I'm fortunate enough for this to be my first and only heart break of my life. But I do think I am handling it the best that I can and maybe by writing this I can help at least one person out there that my be thinking their life is ending because this person doesn't want to be with them. So here goes - my list of ways to 'get over' a break up.

1) Cry. Go ahead and do it. Because it hurts. It hurts like a bitch (excuse my french). Now this really doesn't do anything else except let you get your emotions out but I think it's an important first step. To be in touch with your emotions is important and the fact that you feel this way clearly means you felt very strongly for that person, so it's okay to cry. Just make sure you are not sulking in your room for days at a time but a good long cry here and there will suffice.

2) Get off social media. This is important especially if your relationship was public on Facebook and suddenly you were victim of the dreaded 'in a relationship' to 'single'. Your true friends will see it and call or text you to see if you are alright, you do not need to deal with everyone and their brother commenting or liking your change in relationship status. This will only make you feel worse and cause you dwell on the break up for longer. It is also very important because we are all guilty of the post-breakup stalk. Yes, I know you have, don't deny it. It may not even be the persons page it could just be a picture you two were tagged in together. This will bring up old emotions and make you feel worse, just get rid of it. I can't tell you how much easier my breakup would have been if I had taken this advice. Note: This also goes for Instagram and Twitter. Twitter especially! Because we all at some point have posted this semi-depressing tweet with lyrics to a song you don't really know that well, but felt related perfectly to the situation you are going through. I'm telling you right now, no one wants to see that. So spare yourself and others from that popping up on their feeds.

3) Get out of your house. I don't care if it is taking a drive to the grocery store with your mom, get out. This was crucial for me. I didn't have to work for a full week after my break up. I didn't plan it that way, it seriously just worked out like that. You are prone to sulk in your bed after a situation like that happening but if you force yourself to get out of your house then you do not have the option anymore to go lurk back into bed for the rest of the day. This also helps to get your mind off of the person. I started my internship that Friday after it happened and I honestly can say I don't think I thought of him once in that whole time I was working. Granted it was only two hours and once I got out of there he once again consumed my mind, but it was a step!

4) Talk to someone. While I know not everyone feels comfortable talking about this kind of thing to others, I promise you it will do a world of wonders. As a general rule, you should have that one person you can go to with anything. For me it is my best friend. I know I can tell her anything and she will not judge me for it. Now this can be just about anyone - a friend, a parent, a sibling, a teacher, a therapist, even a pet! (Although I would recommend getting someone who can actually speak back to you, but a pet works for the time being). You need to be able to confide in someone and explain to them why you are hurting. Hopefully that person knows you well enough to give you advice to how to handle the situation and how to move on from it. Talking it out can also release a lot of the emotions that you may have been bottling inside. You could even tell that person everything you wanted to tell your Ex if you think that will help. Just talk and keep talking. You won't even realize how much of a world of a difference it will make.

5) Pamper yourself. Whether it is a massage, mani/pedis, or even a hair cut. Do something that will make you feel beautiful. With all the negativity going around, having a positive change in your life will really make you feel so much better. Because after a break up, at least for girls, we always feel ugly and unwanted. Doing something that makes you feel beautiful even if it is only for a minute will brighten your day and hopefully help you realize, you are just as beautiful as you were pre-break up. For me this was a big help. It probably doesn't help that I have a shopping problem, but when I got my paycheck last Friday I went crazy. I probably spend over $250 on new clothing. Ridiculous? Maybe. Did it make me feel better? Hell yeah! Now it is not the most healthy way to deal with things because it ultimately makes you pretty broke, but the way I think about it is if you buy something that is pretty, it makes you feel pretty. And this is exactly the point I was making! I bought this one dress and I wore it the other day and someone told me I looked "Hot". Did that help my self-confidence? Hell yeah! That's all it takes is a little pick-me-up. If shopping helps, like me, then go ahead and do it. I wouldn't recommend spending $250+, but just a nail polish color or new bright lipstick can do wonders! Trust me.

6) Lastly, Pray. I realize not everyone is religious, so for this maybe there is some substitution out there? If not and prayer isn't your style, just ignore this, but this really helped me. Prayer has always been a weird thing for me. I cry every single time I do it, I'm not kidding. Even if it is happy things! I still cry, not entirely sure why but I do. Maybe that's why I don't do it as much as I should. Either way when I was feeling at my lowest throughout this whole process I prayed. I asked God to heal my broken heart. I prayed for my husband. And I prayed for my Ex. It was amazing how much better I felt after that, even if I was crying the whole way through it. I'm not saying this is for everyone, because I know it's not. I'm just letting you know that if you are Christian and don't have the best relationship with God, try this. It sounds crazy but it seriously helps. Now I didn't get automatic answers but after I was done I felt a wave of relief come over me. Take this as you wish and handle it in your own way, but I think it's worth a shot.

So there you go, the 6 ways to get over a break up. I'm not saying that if you follow these 6 steps then you will be over that person, but it is a good starting point. I am not over him yet, in fact I will probably never be fully over him. If they really meant that much to you then they will always carry a piece of your heart. You will just need to learn how too forgive them and accept the fact that they were in your life for a reason. It may have been a lesson. If that is the case you need to learn from that and move on because people are constantly coming in and out of our lives. It is our job to figure out what their purpose was, to learn from it, and to apply that to our future endeavors.

Because at the end of the day...

Until next time,

Farewell Old Friend

I'm back! I'm sorry I missed Sunday's post. I was having kind of a rough night because of what happened today, I will explain later. But I didn't really have anything I knew I wanted to talk about and I also didn't really feel in the spirit to write. Anyways, onto today's post.

Today marks the end of a life for someone in my family. It was my dog, Rosey. We are all going to miss her so much. She seriously was the best dog anyone could ever ask for. Rosey was 13 years old and her health was failing her. There wasn't ever a big incident that let us make the decision easy. It was basically up to my dad. Her health had been failing for a while now. The Vet even told us that there was nothing else we could do for her. So, it came down to my dad making the decision. And since my whole family was going to be out of town this upcoming weekend, he decided that today was the day.

My whole family came to say goodbye to her. Going into the office was so hard because I just look over and I see my father crying. That led me to start to cry. We all went in and they let us have a couple more minutes with her to day goodbye. My dad, mom and I were all crying while my older brother tried to make light of the situation, cracking jokes.

Time was up and they brought her to the back room. They told us they would bring us back when she was sedated right before they euthanized her. Once everything was all set up, the technician led us to the back room. And there she was. Laying on a towel calmly breathing. They told us she would still be conscious at that point, but it wasn't the same. While she was still alive in that moment, I knew she wasn't truly there. If she had been she would be the lively, loving lab that she had always been. She would be scratching up a storm because her allergies were off the chart, she wasn't Rosey.

We got to pet her and kiss her one last time and then the vet came in. They inserted the needle in her leg slowly. At one moment she shook, like something I had never seen. It's like her soul was just torn out of her body. I knew at that point she was gone. But even still, seeing her lay there it didn't seem real. It seemed like she was just asleep and that she would wake up at any moment. But she didn't. She was gone.

Going home I cried the whole way back. I walked through the front door to my house and my first reaction was to call out to Rosey to greet her. I saw her bed, it was empty. I went upstairs to see the spot that she would lay in all day was empty as well. And that's when it really hit, she was never coming home. Sure she will always be there in spirit. But the flesh of the dog I had for more than half of my life was gone forever. 

I will miss her so much. She has taught me so much about love and loyalty that I will never forget. She was my best friend as a little girl. Any time I was upset I would just go and cry to her. I told her everything. She will always hold a special place in my heart that will never be filled.

Love you Rosey. I can't wait to see you again someday.

First Day of Summer

Happy Friday everyone! As you may or may not know today, June 21st, was the first day of summer. It's, finally, officially socially acceptable to lounge around in your swim suit all day and do absolutely nothing, score.

If you are a Lilly lover such as I am you may or may not know that the first day of summer is 'Wear your Lilly' day. Now this isn't a national holiday or anything but it is a cute idea and as I was looking on Instagram today (mine is @caseyrosexo, follow me if you'd like), I noticed a lot of girls decided to hop on the bandwagon and wear their Lilly today. So for today's Fashion Friday's I decided I was going to show you my outfit of the day with the Lilly item I decided to wear to celebrate the first day of summer. Because everyone can use an excuse to wear Lilly.

Now the Lilly piece in this outfit is actually the jeans! I was selling my clothing to a local consinement shop and while I waited for them I shopped around a bit. I found these jeans, in my size, for only $14! So of course I decided that I needed them. I do not know where they can be found anymore because the style looks like something they haven't had for a couple of seasons at least. The most similar I found was here on the Lilly site. It's a much lighter pink but the cropped style is the most similar.

Now this it's not a very exciting outfit by any means, but I thought it was cute and comfortable enough for work (And also a little secret, I didn't shave my legs so I needed something that covered that area). But the shirt is from Forever 21, I got it a long time ago but I think anything Navy and White striped would look super adorable with this. I found something I liked on the Forever 21 website that I think would pair nicely with these pants here. And lastly, the flats are from Steve Madden which I showed you guys on my Workin' Lady post. I seriously can't wear these enough, in fact I've worn them so much that I probably need a new pair because these puppies have seen much better days. Here they are again on the DSW website.

Hope you enjoyed today's Fashion Friday's. Leave me a comment letting me know which Lilly pieces you are loving for summer!

Until next time,

Arrow Obsession

When joining a sorority becoming a little bit obsessed with everything your organization stands for kind of comes with the territory. If you know anyone that is in Chi Omega, I guarantee they have tons of Owl paraphernalia in their life. Delta Gamma - Anchor. Zeta Tau Alpha - Crown. You get the jist.

On my last Sorority Sunday I talked a lot about my sorority, Pi Beta Phi, and their background. I also talked about our symbol - the arrow. Now being that it is one of our symbols, I have become a little bit obsessed. Pretty much anything and everything that has an arrow on it, I've got to have it. Seriously's kind of a problem.

That's why for this Sorority Sunday I've decided I was going to insert a list of arrow-related things I am currently obsessing over. Enjoy!

I first saw this pillow when I was actually in Target and I immediately sent it to our Vice President of Housing and told her - we need this pillow. Except we don't, but she agreed it was just as cute.

This Gray Threshold Embroidery Linen Arrow Decorative Pillow can be found at Target for $23.74

This next pillow I may have also slightly fell in love with as well. I mean for one - arrows, duh. Secondly, it is magenta. Which might as well be wine. Which is one of our colors. Perfection!

This Bright Magenta Love Arrow Pillow can be found on for $39

Lastly, I had to include this. I was looking on JC Penny's website and saw that Jonathan Adler had made line just for Penny's! Now I for one love Jonathan Adler. If you may not be familiar with him, think of his things as a more urban Lilly Pulitzer. They tend to design kind of the same small items - agendas, iPhone cases, etc. It may not be your style but I love him. So naturally I was beyond excited to see his JC Penny's line. It is mainly filled with home decor which is great because any chance I get I will redecorate my room. If you haven't seen any of his stuff before, I would recommend going on the Penny's website and checking out his line. There is some super cute stuff on there.

Anyways, back to this bookend. Now if you know me at all, I don't read. Don't get me wrong its not like I hate to read or anything but I simply never do it. During the school year I don't like to clutter my mind with yet another book when I should be reading my History book, which rarely gets open. Now to many people's dismay I actually did start, and finish, an entire book today while sitting at my brother's baseball games. Granted it was Style by Lauren Conrad, but Hey! Give me some credit here, I'm trying! And you can laugh, but the only reason I bought the book in the first place was so that I could have some books for my bookends (I know, I'm literally the dumbest person ever). Either way, I have fallen in love with these bookends because, of course, they are arrows. So you can guarantee they will be mine when I get my next paycheck.

Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler Katie Set of 2 Arrow Bookends can be found at JC Penny for $42

What do you think? Pretty silly, huh? Well I can't help it, I'm in love.

Let me know what decor items you are loving this summer, I'd love to see it!

Until next time,

Workin' Lady

This past Monday I had my first interview for an internship! So today for Fashion Friday's I decided to show you exactly how I styled my professional attire.

Good news is they are all still available!

La Dee Dot's top in Ivory from Francesca's for $38

Factory Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton in Brilliant Cobalt from J. Crew Factory for $44.50

Steve Madden Heaven Patent Flat in Taupe from Steve Madden found at DSW for $39.95 

The top pictured is kind of sheer, so I put a nude cami underneath and tucked it all into the pencil skirt (which is so comfortable by the way). The flats can absolutely be substituted with a heel, however I just didn't feel completely comfortable in the heels that I had.

Hope you enjoyed this week's Fashion Fridays!

Until next time,

Love, Always

Today, June 10th, marks the 1 year anniversary of my boyfriend and I. Now I normally wouldn't post something so sappy and personal on here but it's something that I wanted to share.

Its amazing to think that it's only been one year. It seems like a lifetime for all we've gone through together. The ups and the downs. The laughs and the cries. You've been there with me through it all.

Its funny how much someone can effect your life. You think another person couldn't possibly impact your life in such a way as you have. Even though it's been only a year I can't imagine my life without you. It actually scares me to imagine a life like that. 

Who would think that such a relationship could come from two stupid college kids. I mean let's admit, we're both pretty dumb. From the way that we could barely form coherent sentences with each other when we first met. To when you first told me you loved me at that fraternity house (romantic I know), you had to have a little too much to drink in order to get the courage to tell me. And that night was the first night you opened up to me about your family. I feel so honored to be apart of your life. And I can't wait to see where this crazy journey leads us next.

I love you babe.

Until next time,

Arrow Minded

Since we like to make cheesy alliterations on this blog, let's go ahead and start another one!

"Sorority Sundays"


So as you may or may not know I am in Pi Beta Phi sorority at my university. I posted a couple of days ago about crafting for my little and the Big/Little process but what I failed to talk about was my sorority in general!

I absolutely love Pi Phi (shortened name), ever since bid day I have fallen head over heels in love with everyone in this organization and everything about it. I am so blessed with the opportunities that it has given me thus far.

Let's start from the beginning, we were founded on April 28, 1867 as the first national secret society for women. We were originally named I.C. Sorosis but then later changed our name to Pi Beta Phi. Our colors are Wine and Silver Blue. Our symbol is the Arrow and our mascot is the angel.

Now you may understand why this blog is called "Bows and Arrows". Bows - just for the girly side of it all and Arrows - for my sorority.

"But how did you choose to become part of this organization?" - Good question! ;)

I decided to participate in rush last fall at my school. We have 9 Panhellenic sororities on campus that I 'rushed' (I can go through the whole recruitment process at a later time). Each day of rush you go to less and less houses until you are down to two houses at Pref Night. After going to both houses on Pref Night I knew which one I belonged to. There were pros and cons to each but the biggest reason that I chose Pi Phi was because I was a legacy.

A legacy is defined as someone who's mother, grandmother, or sister is affiliated with that organization. My grandmother is a Pi Phi, which I didn't learn until the summer before I decided to rush! Having her to talk with about everything related to Pi Phi has really made the experience that much more special to me and has brought us closer than we have ever been. I am so glad I get the opportunity to share this experience with her.

Now onto present times. It has been a whole school year since I rushed, so where am I now?

In January I was slated to be the Vice President of Membership for my chapter. I was beyond shocked that they slated me for this position because it is not normally a position you give to a new girl. The VPM (for short) is in charge of the biggest event for any sorority - Recruitment. That's right. I'm in charge of it all. I just went through it last year and now I am leading it. It was extremely overwhelming at first, but I have some great people on Exec who I can turn to for help. They have really been my life savers and I cannot thank them enough for all they have done.

So this summer will be filled with planning for recruitment. However, I do get the opportunity to go to San Diego for the 69th Biennial Convention where I get to meet Pi Phi's from all across the country. I was chosen as the alternate delegate and our President is our chapter delegate. I am so excited to travel to San Diego with her and I will absolutely keep this blog updated with everything from that trip!

I hope you enjoyed the first edition of 'Sorority Sunday'! Keep checking back during the week for more posts and maybe even more themed days?

Until next time,

Rain, Rain, Go Away

I wanted to start a segment on this blog called Fashion Fridays. It is going to be something that I'll either post outfit of the day's or just fashion finds that I have been loving recently!

So in honor of Andrea just putting a damper on this summer weekend, I've decided to make the theme of this Fashion Friday "Rainy Days", we don't have to stop being stylish just because the weather isn't cooperating right?

Lets start from the feet up, shall we?

The first thing that I think we all knew was coming was none other than the Hunter rain boots.
I've been in love with these for some time now and while I have decided to spend my money on other things instead of on these, they will be mine in the near future - mark my words.

These are the Original Tall Gloss Rain Boots in Black that retail for $140
Here they are at Nordstroms as well as the Hunter website

The next thing that I feel kind of like a copy-cat for loving and drooling over are the L.L. Bean 'Duck Boots'. I'm not sure if it's just a southern thing but I have been seeing these pop up all over the place lately and I can't help but jump on the bandwagon.

These are the basic Women's 8" Bean Boots in Tan/Brown that retail for $99
Here they are on the L.L.Bean website

Onto Rain Jackets...

This particular jacket I actually own in the black color. It is from Columbia and it does the job. The only thing I do not love about it is it doesn't stay on my head, I have to constantly hold the brim of the hood in order for it to cover my face. Kind of a bummer, but other than that it is a great jacket!

This is the Women's Trail Turner Shell Jacket that retails for $90
Here it is on the Columbia website

The next jacket is from none other than Marley Lilly. Any southern girl who may or may not have a slight obsession with monograms knows and loves this site. Literally anything you could possibly think of to monogram, they have it. This is their lovely rain jacket with a monogram on both the front left chest as well as on the hood! Ahh, couldn't love more.

This is the Monogrammed Black Eddie Bauer Jacket that retails for $59.99
Here it is on the Marley Lilly website

Last but not least we can't leave the house without a cute umbrella!

Now another thing a southern girl needs to have in her closet is something from Lilly Pulitzer. Lilly just screams southern, fun, and preppy. I actually own one of her umbrellas from a couple of seasons ago and I cannot remember the name of the print, but every time I open it up I get tons of compliments on it.

This is the Lilly Pulitzer Umbrella in the print "Chiquita Bonita" that retails for $30
Here it is on Lifeguard Press

The last umbrella I realize is kind of unrealistic. Its Burberry and it's expensive. But if you paired it with the L.L.Bean boots from above doesn't it just scream London? Hey, a girl can dream right?

This is the Burberry House Check Umbrella that retails for $450
Here it is on Burberry

How I would personally style all of these outfits is by picking a shoe, add some fuzzy socks of course. Then add either jeans or leggings (my personal favorite). Add a comfy sweater if it is during the fall or winter or a light tee shirt during the spring or summer. Top that off with a rain jacket of your choice. Grab your cutest umbrella and you are out the door! Completely shielded from the elements!

These have been some of my personal favorite items for a dreary day. I realize black has been a popular color for a lot of these but you can absolutely substitute colors for the jacket or boots. I have a pair of hot pink rain boots that bring a smile to my face every time I wear them because they are just so fun!

Hope the rain didn't ruin your day too much but now you'll be ready for the next time it comes!

Until next time,

Spring (er, Summer) Cleaning

I know its a little late for Spring Cleaning, but hey better late than never, right?

When I moved all of my things home from college about a month ago, it just didn't seem right that I had all of these clothes. I was so certain that half of those clothes I hadn't worn for at least a couple of months.

So tonight I just decided to do it. To go through my closet and get rid of the things that either didn't fit anymore (freshman 15, whoops), or I just didn't wear as much as I should. In reality I thought I would have maybe like 10-20 items - mostly jeans because I had been holding onto jeans since my early years of high school when I was a twiggy little thing. Needless to say, I ended up having to get rid of way more items then I thought I would have.

That's a lot of clothes...
And the great part is that there are places locally that will buy gently used clothes and give you cash for them! Which I can really use after getting rid of about half of my wardrobe.

I know there are a couple of places around where I live and I'm sure there are some near you if you just google it. They are becoming pretty popular with the price of clothing on the rise and the need for staying in style keeping steady. Check it out! It certainly will help your closet and your wallet.

Until next time,

Casey Rose

Crafting Daze

Well hello again, long time no see.

I didn't realize how difficult it would be to find things to blog about. It's been a week or two since my last post. I figured that because it was summer time and I had all these things to do that putting up blogs would be a breeze! Not the case.

Ever since I had gotten back from the beach my life started up again as normal - working, babysitting, taking a few trips here and there to visit my boyfriend and my friends in Wilmington. Other than that, it has been a lot of sitting around at home doing a lot of nothing.

However, one thing that has kept me busy is crafting!

As you may or may not know, I am in Pi Beta Phi sorority at my university. I rushed last year in the fall and have loved every second of it. For those of you who are familiar with sorority life, you understand the whole Big/Little process. For those of you aren't, I will explain...

When you rush a sorority and begin the new member process there is a point down the road where you are assigned a 'Big'. This person is supposed to be your mentor, someone who is normally a year older than you and was just in your shoes as a new member last year.

At my school the way we find out who our Big is going to be is by Big/Little week. This was probably the best week of my life, not joking. It is 4 days of getting spoiled to death. The first day is normally a card or letter from your Big (this is still anonymous by the way). The second day you receive some sort of sweet treats. Third day is tee-shirt day, my favorite; you get a bunch of hand-me-down tee shirts from your big and family. And the last day is reveal day! This is the day when you find out who your big is and you get completely spoiled with a basket full of things Pi Phi related. For example my big gave me a couple of items from the Pi Phi Lilly Pulitzer collection, wine glasses, more tee shirts, cork board, Pi Phi related canvases, etc.

This can get to be pretty expensive if you decide to go all out, however at the end of the day it is all worth it. So with all of that being said, and having one year of greek life under my belt, I get to be a Big next year! I have already started crafting for my little and I am loving every second of it. I have only started working on two canvases for her and neither are completely finished yet, however I figured I would update you on my progress as I go along as well as maybe do a tutorial as to how to do some of these.

I got inspiration for my first canvas off of a group on Facebook called The Big/Little Connection where a lot of people post different crafts they did for their littles. I thought it this one was precious, so the crafting began...

Now some of you may be asking how I got the hands for the design. Well I tried finding cartoon hands of our symbol online but I had no luck. But if you have a Mac then you are in luck. There is an effect on the Photo booth application that is called "Pop art". All I did was pose my hands in a certain way and took loads of pictures until I found one that I liked the best, here was the winner:

Then what I did was printed the picture out (I actually had to use two pieces of paper to get it the size I wanted) and on the back I shaded over the lines that were the most important for my picture (obviously the TV in the background didn't make the cut). After that I flipped it over, positioned it how i wanted and proceeded to trace the lines of my hands and it turned out like the picture shown below. This method also works very well if you were painting a cooler.

I then colored it in with neon paint, I decided to go with these colors instead of the muted colors that were from my inspiration. (sorry for it being side ways, i couldn't figure out how to get it horizontal)

After a few more coats I added the black around the edges. This is good because you don't have to completely worry about staying within the lines when originally coloring above because the black will hide any mistakes.

After that I drew the black lines in between the boxes.

And traced the lines around the hands. You also want to keep your original photo that you traced in case you have to go over any lines that may have been covered up by the paint - that blue covered up everything.

And here is the finished product! I'm obviously not completely done, I still have to add the "Throw what you know, Pi Beta Phi". But I will probably just use either silver sharpie or paint for that, it shouldn't be too difficult.

So that is my first project of the summer! I am very proud of the way that it turned out. If you have any questions about paint or brushes that I used feel free to leave a comment with any questions that you may have! I have also started on a chevron canvas so be on the look out for that, I am done with the chevron but I want to wait until it is all finished to make a post about it because it is going to be one of my favorite pieces :)

I will definitely have a post at the end of the summer with all of my finished products so also be on the look out for that. Other than that, happy crafting!

Until next time,

Casey Rose
