My Name Is ____ And I Am A Monogramaholic

Yes, it's true. If you haven't figured out by now, I am OBSESSED with monograms! "If it's not monogrammed, is it really even yours?!" My obsession with monogramming has carried over into all of my stuff for my dorm! (OBVIOUSLY!) I have a wooden monogram for my wall, monogrammed towels, and even a monogram on my lamp! One of the best things to do, whether you're a monogramaholic or not, is monogram your towels that you will be using in your dorm bathroom! Whether it's a suite-style (like mine) or you share a bathroom with the entire floor, you don't want someone accidentally using your towels! Especially if you're a "save a trip to the laundry room, use your towels more than once" kinda girl like me, the thought of other people using my towels grosses me out! Especially if I'm going to reuse them! With monogrammed towels, there is no excuse for a "mix-up." So take my advice, monogram everything!! There's no doubt that it's yours! 
And the great thing about it, is most of the stuff is totally DIY! (I have a monogram machine and a Cricut available to do most of my stuff, but if you don't, most craft stores (Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc.) have iron-on letters that you can put on almost anything!

Gettin' Crafty With It

Ok, so like I mentioned before, I love doing crafty stuff! (You should check out my Pinterest boards (; )
Soooo.... I saw these beauties on Etsy, but of course I thought to myself, "I could totally do that!" So I set out on a little adventure to make bow tanks! I won't give away my secrets...yet! But I've made a little extra money from friends paying me to make bow tanks for them! All you need is a monogramming machine (If you, like me, have to have EVERYTHING monogrammed), a racer back tank, a little bit of fabric, and a TON of patience! If you want to see pictures of all of the tanks I've made, follow me on Instagram! @haydenlee13

My Life As...Hayden

Hey y'all! My name is Hayden, and I'm going to be a freshman at Troy University this fall. I am (as of right now) going to major in Biomedical Sciences and I'm going through Sorority Recruitment this fall! The main reason I'm writing this blog is to document my adventures as a college student. Hopefully this blog will help others who, like me, have absolutely no idea what to expect during "the best years of your life."

Just a little bit about me...I am addicted to monograms! If it doesn't have your monogram, is it really even yours? I LOVE baby pandas!! I am also pretty crafty (hellooooo DIY projects) and I'm slightly addicted to Pinterest!
