Hello!

It's been a tiring past few days. I was in Nashville, Cincinnati, Mansfield, and now back in Kent. It's hard for me to feel like any place is home at the moment! I am very content though to be back at college and get settled in permanently for a long time. My weary, sickly body can't take much more moving around.

These outfit pictures were taken on the beautiful Vanderbilt campus in the heart of Nashville. It's the third most expensive college in The States and you can certainly tell with the rich architecture and well groomed campus. Hannah and I just had to stop by on this awfully frigid day and snap some photos of our fancy get ups we wore to dinner that night. I also have snapshots from this day where we did a bit of shopping, a coffee run, and ate at the vintage sweet shop again. I might post those tomorrow and they'll be the last of my Nashville photos!

Tomorrow is my busiest school day (from 9 in the morning until 9 at night; four classes) so wish me luck! I'm going to treat myself to a venti at Starbucks to get me through this cold, long day ahead of me!

Hope all is well with you beautiful people :)

With much love, Lauren.

I love your dress, the color is fab! Good luck with school tomorrow, 12 hours of classes sounds very undesirable, but I'm sure you can do it! xxx

The colors in this outfit are unexpected but so awesome. Great eye! What day did you go sans tights? Because Tennessee was having some pretty brutal winter weather, at least by my standards, last week.
Hope you feel better soon!

Keep blogging your adorable style, I will be reading for sure!!

More and more people in today's world have a memory of playing video games as children. With every new generation, games have been advancing and continue to be popular. This doesn't seem to stop, and so the trend will continue.

You should try renting a game before you buy it. You will not be able to return a game you bought once you opened it. When you rent computer games, you can check them out without having to make costly mistakes.

IF you want to find discount games for kids, look at sales in your area. Some video rental businesses are hurting now. Keep your eyes open, and you may see stores that are going out of business and offering merchandise at steep discounts. Usually the discs are still good but may need a cleaning.

Make video gaming part of your exercise routine. Physical motion sensing technology is spreading through the industry. That lets you engage in gaming while using your own muscles, playing sports and practicing yoga. You can now get into great shape using your video game in your living room.

These days, lots of games are transmitted online. There are a wide variety of downloadable games available for PCs, consoles, and smartphones. It s convenient, but it may cause you to spend more money than normal. Resist the temptation to make impulse gaming purchases, especially of big-ticket new releases. It is important to learn everything you can about a game prior to purchasing it.

It can be helpful to play a trial version of a game you are unsure about purchasing. These computer game trials are extremely helpful in helping you determine if you want to spend your hard earned cash on a game. If you the trial of a certain game, try buying the full version.

With a game that's fairly popular it can be tempting to buy everything out there for it like expansions and upgrades right when you begin playing. This can be expensive! Try maintaining discipline. Wait until you have played through the game before purchasing additional content.

To save money, consider purchasing used games. The cost of new online gaming are $60 or higher depending on the title. This price is bad enough as it is, but it can a real downer when the game is delivered and you find that you absolutely hate it. By purchasing a used game, you could save 25-50% on the game you want.

Many modern online games give you two choices. First, you can earn in-game content and rewards gradually through investment of your time and work. Or, you can just flat out buy them with your real world money. Consider how much advantage these purchases will actually give you in game. Many cash purchases don't really do that much to help you win the game. Or, they might improve it a lot and save you tons of time.

You can get good deals by purchasing used video games. It is a good idea to buy a disc cleaner if you buy a lot of used games, though. You never understand what sort of shape your game will be in when you do this. If your discs are really dirty a good cleaning kit will help to restore them. It is a good idea to look at several cleaning disc options. There are many kits like this on the market.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

You already understand how much fun you can have playing video games. People from all over the world get great joy from video gaming. Now that you have had a chance to look through these tips, you probably feel that you understand a lot more about gaming. Good luck to you!

Whoa,I love this outfit so much! The green cardigan looks so striking with your lovely dress. (I really like seeing all of the ways you've worn this dress since you won it, it's such a beauty and the blush color just looks amazing on you.) And wow, your hair, it is so pretty up like this, those are the prettiest braids. Hah, all this rambling just to say that i really love this outfit, I think it's one of my favorites of yours. :)
