So as many of you know that follow me on social media (if you don’t follow your girl @danieminor13!), this past weekend I went to Her Conference!
Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies; going to events is another favorite of mine. This past weekend, I took an Amtrak Train to NYC where the conference was being held. Amtrak allowed me to combine my two favorite things!
Her Conference is a conference put together by the staff at Her Campus. Her Campus is an online magazine for “collegiette” women! Along with being an online magazine, they also have a blogger network, which I’m apart of.
So, when they announced the dates for the conference, which is held in NYC, I immediately purchased a two-day ticket. At the time it didn’t matter to me how I got to NYC, where I was staying or if anyone I knew was also going to the conference that I knew;I knew I was going!
A month before the conference I had the place to stay, but still hadn’t locked down how I was getting to NYC… then Amtrak popped into the equation! Continue reading
I cannot believe it is already Definingdanie.com’s birthday. This first year of blogging has been unimaginable. Defining Danie has opened so many doors and friendships, that I could not imagine not having anymore. I really would like to thank everyone who has supported me through this first year. Thank you for every share, like and follow!
I have definitely learned so much about blogging and about myself through this year-long journey. I cannot wait to see what is next on my journey of the online world! Who knows? If there is anything new that you would love to see on Defining Danie, you have to let me know!
The number one thing that I think has improved since my first post is my use of exclamation points, haha! (Whoops, I guess that was necessary though…) I think that I was so excited when I first started that I thought that everything just HAD to have one.
Make sure you’re connected at all times!
..I belong in Europe is all I can say. For two weeks I traveled all throughout Dublin and London. I was there with one of my classes that I took during the semester, Global Advertising and Public Realtions. While visiting, we not only visited the touristy sites, we worked with groups that we were paired with all semester.
My group, International Wit, worked to compare Continue reading
I cannot believe how long it has been since I have posted a blog post. I missed you all!
I am nearing the end of my spring break. I had a fun start to my spring break! I went to Canada with my sister and best friend for the weekend, and then we drove back to Maryland for the remainder of the break. We went to Windsor, Ontario. It was absolutely adorable for a weekend.
Yesterday, I went to a new salon and had the best hair cut/color I have ever had! If you are in the Annapolis, Md. area, you must go to see Virginia at Possibilities Salon in Crofton, Md.
I went BLONDE! I love it so much. I have always wanted to go this light with my hair, but I was too nervous. I can’t imagine having any other hair color now.
I bought this adorable cup at Target! Tell me it’s not adorable!
I missed you all!
Good morning everyone! This weekend was a jam-packed Chi Omega weekend for me (I am not complaining!). This weekend we had our Family Day brunch and our spring philanthropy event. Chi Omega’s philanthropy is Make-A-Wish Foundation! For my chapter’s event, we did “Chi-O Karaoke”. At the event, we raised almost $20,000! YES, you read that correctly!
At the Family Day brunch, sisters were recognized for many things. In Chi Omega, we have six purposes that are very special to us. They are:
Within those areas, two sisters were chosen to receive awards within each purpose! I was lucky enough to be chosen as the “High Standards Emerging Leader”! I was so honored to be chosen out of my more then 200 women for this award.
Two years ago, Kent State’s Chi Omega chapter was able to raise enough money for a special little girl named Mackenzie, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. On Saturday, a healthy Mackenzie sang “Let It Go” from Disney’s movie Frozen for all of the Greek Community! It was so inspiring to watch her with such confidence, and know that Chi Omega helped make her a happier during a rough time in her life. Let’s just say when she sang… there was not a dry eye in the house! I was crying like a baby, haha.
The brunch was lovely, and we killed our philanthropy event! I know the news does not always portray Greek Life in the best light, but I promise you there are a lot of positive aspects to it. I am thankful to Chi Omega for some of the lovely ladies that I have met through it!
Here are some pretty photos with some of my beautiful sisters:
Hi everyone! There is a really fun event coming up this Friday from 6-8! I am hosting this event along with a few friends!
The event is called “Thrift Night Out”! Remember that really adorable Goodwill boutique that I wrote about last week? Well, that’s where the event is!
I live in an apartment-style dorm. I decorated a little in the beginning of the school year, but last night (at 2 a.m. of course) I realized I had a lot of things with my monogram on it, but, nothing with any sayings on it! I came across a quote on Twitter that I absolutely fell in love with- so it had to be painted and put on my walls! 🙂
I used this owl-shaped piece of wood that I bought at Michael’s craft store over the summer that I hadn’t done anything with. Then, I painted it with two coats of white paint.
I decided to use the quote: “She needed a hero so that’s what she became” because a little girl power is ALWAYS needed! I used my favorite gold paint that I also bought at Michaels’s craft store. Make sure that when you’re using a gold paint, to buy the metallic gold paint! It will shimmer, and look GORG (just like all of you!).
Make sure to go over the words at least twice, so the paint isn’t transparent!
At first, I was thinking I liked the board with just the words, and no bedazzles, but I wouldn’t be Danie without any extras on my crafts! So, I decided to look in my crafting bin for something cute I had to put on it, and I found two pretty fake flowers!
I just magically had two flowers left- so, it was meant to be for this craft! I just hot glued them on, and they stayed perfectly.
Now it’s time to hang up your masterpiece! I used a command hook and hung it up in my living room!
I hung it up underneath of one of the many monograms that are in my apartment!
These small things make your dorm room have personality! I would love to see some of your DIYs that are in your dorms!
No, there isn’t an election, a wedding or my birthday. It is the day that Lilly Pulitzer is coming to Target!
You read that correctly, LILLY. PULITZER. IS. COMING. TO. TARGET. I am so excited! They are going to have a 250-piece collection featured in their 15 different patterns!
What I am wondering is, what are their prices going to be like?
Target, is known for being somewhat affordable, and Lilly Pulitzer, although I love it, is not. Will they have affordable prices, or is it still going to be $80 for the bag that I have been wanting for forever?!
But, look how cute the collection is going to be:
Ugh, look at how adorable those place settings are… they are a must for me! I mean, even the Target symbol next to Lilly’s is adorable!
Let me know your thoughts on LP coming to Target,
