  • Daily [Dose of Charm] Blog: Wedding 12/13/14

    Saturday was an amazing day! I absolutely love weddings! Seeing people so in love is a great feeling, and you can't forget about the gorgeous decorations that the bride spends months dreaming of (or years if you're like me, my Pinterest is enough evidence of that). My cousin's wedding was yellow and blue - the decorations were darling! And of course I had my handsome date by my side! I wore an open shoulder dress that I am in love with, it's called…

Now I LOVE picking out gifts for other people and seeing their face when they open it! Buuut what I don't love is the step inbetween those two, yup - wrapping. I recently got asked to…

  • Daily [Dose of Charm] Blog: Meet my pup 12/09/14

    Today has definitely been one of those days where I have had 0 motivation to get anything done, blahh. I woke up with a headache and decided-since it is my senior year after all-I would sleep through my first and second hour (Ecology and English). So maybe not the best decision, but I woke up happy and refreshed! Even my pomeranian, Beau, had a lazy morning in his pin. He didn’t bark or complain once that his mom laid in…

  • Easy Beginner Calligraphy

    I recently found this tip on how to easily learn to write beginner calligraphy and I had to share! I am definitely one of those people that doodle all over their notebooks in class, so this will be a nice skill to practice for future crafting (or maybe my procrastination)! You can use this for addressing letters, crafting canvases, or just writing quotes like I did! What will you use it for? Happy writing! Copyright © 2015 dailydoseofcharm.com
