Interview with Carly {The College Prepster}

This week I had the amazing opportunity to interview one of my idols, Carly from The College Prepster. Not only is her Instagram feed my hopes and dreams, but her blog is to die for. I'm not even kidding you when I say this interview has been like getting advice from the coolest older sister ever. So, without further adieu, here is Chit-Chat with Carly.

M- It seems like you always get to do really cool things- from having your own prints at Evelyn Henson to going behind the scenes at Kate Spade. What's the neatest thing you've ever gotten to do?

C- I love all the opportunities that come my way! It never gets old and I always get just as excited when a new opportunity comes up. Working with Teen Vogue has definitely been way up there in terms of "pinch me" moments.

M- Your blog is to die for. Seriously, it's my goal. If there's one piece of advice you could give blogger girls everywhere, what would it be?

C- Just go for it! Be unique in your voice and what you post!

M- Living in New York, you must see a ton of inspiration for blogging and style every day. Where do you go to feel inspired/what gives you inspiration?

C- I get most of my inspiration from just my everyday experiences. A bad day can inspire a post or an interesting outfit pairing I stumbled upon.

M-  From writing daily blog posts to walking your precious pup to attending the chicest do you get it all done?

C- I set priorities and figure out what times of the day works best for me. I tend to work for a handful of hours in the morning, take the afternoon off, and then pick back up around 6pm until midnight!

Hope you enjoyed the interview!
And here's an Instagram snapshot because I hard-core stalked her puppy.

The List

This is the first post in my organization series! I hope you like it.

Something you might not know about me is that I love to make lists. On sticky notes, the back of my homework, on my computer-- it just makes me feel so much more organized and like I actually have my life together. Recently I heard about this thing called "The List." Basically, it's a way to list out the 3 most pressing projects you have to tackle, and break them down into smaller tasks to make sure everything gets done and you don't get overwhelmed. I looked for templates for "The List," but I wasn't too impressed with what I saw. I think that having pretty supplies makes getting things done easier, so I made my own templates! They also double as a helpful blog and homework planner. Or a shopping list or meal planner or a workout planner. Whatever you're into :)

Depending on how large you write, you can print the PDF as many pages per sheet as you want to fit your size needs. I designed four templates in Lilly Pulitzer and Vineyard Vines prints, but I would love to make more. If you have a pattern you'd like to see, leave a comment below or on my Instagram @ASunnyStateofMind. I also added a little quote in the corner of each one to make it more fun. I hope these lists help you buckle down and get all that stuff you've been needing to do done!
