LIFE :: Rain, Rain, I'll let you stay

After a blistering hot North Carolina summer, I'm welcoming the week of rain that we are currently in the midst of. I finally got to pull out some of my sweaters, and more importantly, I get to wear my new rainboots every day this week. Really, I've been jumping in puddles on my walks to class just because I can.

I've been spending hours upon hours in coffee houses across Chapel Hill because I had four midterms this week. The exams were miserable, but my time in varioius coffeehouses across the town was splendid. Currently, I'm sitting in Caribou Coffee. Other destinations this week? Open Eye Cafe in Carrboro, Jack Sprat Cafe, Cafe Driade and good ole' Starbucks.

Another delightful discovery is that many coffeehouses also sell wine. And as of this month, I'm 21 years old and can purchase wine. This also made studying a lot more tolerable.

Next week I have yet another exam as well as two papers due, so I'm positive my coffeehouse craze is not even close to over. I'm okay with that. Bring on the vino!

The Long Awaited Return

Hello friends,

As tends to happen in my ever-hectic life, I got distracted by other responsibilities (namely, that little thing called college) and unfortunately abandoned my favorite project, the lovely blog. I have been keeping up my Tumblr, which is just so quick and easy, but I've been missing Joy is Style!

So, I'm vowing now to be a good little blogger and actually update Joy is Style multiple times a week.

I came across this DIY wall idea from Design*Sponge and it is beyond awesome.

For a step-by-step, be sure to check out this post from Design*Sponge.

More later, lovelies!
