1. Hello, I Have a Blog If I'm talking about my blog, it normally comes out as an accident! I'll say that I'm writing a blog post if somebody asks what I'm doing at the moment, or I'll just mention it briefly in passing, but it's rare that I'll actually say "Hey, I'm Francesca and I blog every day." A lot of people just don't get it. Or they do and I'm just really paranoid. What do you guys do?

2. Tropical Printed Dress + Braids Oh my lanta, this dress is heavenly. I love the look of these crossed braids, especially with Alex's hair color. I'm anxiously awaiting warmer weather now!!

3. How To: Be More Productive GUYS, THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST POSTS OF ALL TIME. Being productive is one of my favorite feelings in the entire world. It gives me a lot of satisfaction knowing that I'm doing something conducive with my time and am not spending all of my spare moments lollygaggling (though, sometimes you need a bit of relaxing time! Nothing wrong with it when it's in moderation). This post is perfectly timed with April coming up soon AKA the last month of school before the dreaded week of finals.

4. Day-to-Night: Black and White I am all about the black and white look, no matter what time of year. It's so effortlessly chic.

5. Three Book Suggestions I have The Girl on the Train in my possession, have heard only good things about Delirium, and John Green is my absolute favorite so you know Paper Towns has been devoured many-o-times. Just like Carly, I'd have to say that'd be my suggestion of the three books she's mentioned (disregard the fact that it's also the ONLY one I read of the three. Owning and hearing about the books counts too!!!)

6. Brush Cleaning Basics I swear by baby shampoo to clean my brushes (though I just use Johnson's, if I'm being honest). Ideally, I like to do them on Sunday night, but sometimes I wash them more frequently than honestly depends on how much makeup I was wearing that week. Clean brushes are super important though! Don't forget!

7. Notes On Being A Boss (Of Your Life) Takes notes, ladies!

8. Scared or Not, Here You Come Ever since Taylor Swift's sophomore album Fearless debuted, being "fearless" has been something that I've always strived for. I want to be brave and fearless too! Perhaps now is the time to put it into gear, eh?

9. Polka Dots or Stripes? I love both, but I think I'm partial to stripes. Which pattern takes the cake for you?
