Pop of Red

Red & White


Getting ready for the fall semester with... STRIPES. Yes, I'll be trending the stripes and boots this new school year and I am excited. Here I compiled a collage with a tan messenger bag with matching boots, a warm striped oversized sweater, and skinny jean! New memories, new friends, new trend. Who's all excited for this????

With Peach && Love

- "Z-E-T-A S-I-G-M-A C-H-I -- ZETA SIGMA CHI!!!!"
-"We're not this or that, or in between we're just radiant ladies of the sweet black and peach, unnniiiii!"

Okay, okay! Enough of sorority chants, but just thought I'd represent just a tad bit! Let me break it down a little for all you curious cats about a little sorority with a big dream!

In 1990, eight determined women at Northern Illinois University came together to form a bond like no other! They ad an idea for an organization that would unify women of different cultures, ethnicities, religions and backgrounds. This organization would also focus on the pursuit of higher education and achieving academic success. These strong women wanted not only to teach others at their school about their ideals, but they wanted to share their dreams and experiences with others as well! And from there Zeta Sigma Chi was founded on March 3, 1991.

So as you can see, we're fairly new. We are the exception from the various sororities out there and are quite unique. We do not discriminate and we accept everyone for who they are. And yes we are a social sorority just like everyone else but not only that, we do a lot of service and make education one of our greatest priorities! Coming into college I've always wanted to be part of the big greek organization but just couldn't find the right fit. I've always been a little different in high school and never stayed in one specific clique. I always just loved jumping around from different groups of people and here in Zeta Sigma Chi, I found home. These group of exceptional lovely ladies just opened my horizon. And they opened my eyes to all dreams of unifying women of different cultures and backgrounds. And as a new sorority our future aspirations is to create a significant difference in the community as well as on campus! We want to welcome everyone with open arms and show the atypical from the "typical." From time to time you may see different significant things relating to ZSC in the blog!

Our colors: Peach and Black!
Mascot? A unicorn! Yea a mystical graceful creature such as a unicorn!
And our flower is the peach rose (:

As I share this with you all, I just get excited telling you something quite significant in my life like Z-Chi. This sorority has changed my life in a great way and they just mean so much to me. And the sisterhood I've created with them is something worth while. <3

With peach and love,
Your Southern Pearl

A fresh new start!

Hello everyone! As a fairly new blogger, I am thrilled to be able to start anew and share with you all. I've been contemplating whether or not to start my own personal blog but just never had the courage to do it. Soooo, here's my shot! Here on "Your Southern Pearl" you'll see all the things that I am currently interested in or love. Between diy projects, cooking, a little on fashion and the newest chapter of my life (new house, fiancee, and a flamboyant dog) I'll be able to share all the things that are happening in my life right here, right now! Yes, I know what you're thinking about: What's so significant about Tresha and her blog? Well I cherish everything in my life. I'm a radiant gemini who thinks every little thing should be cherished and loved! So let's get rollin'.

First, I'd like to catch you up on some stuff about me! My name is Tresha Mae and I live in the big old city of Columbia. Living in Beaufort for a while and moving here to Cola, is a big transition it self. I'm a USC girl going into my third year of college.

 I am a radiant & dignified girl of Zeta Sigma Chi Multicultural Sorority Incorporated who has amazing sisters! I can promise you they're the greatest genuine people you could meet!

* The Deuce Club!

I have a new amazing yellow house and little black lab to come with it. You may have heard the little phrase, "southern pearl" before or maybe you haven't. This has been a little inside joke my fiance and I have shared for the longest time. But not till recently did I accept that I was a southern pearl. Sure I grew up living more up north and learning the northern ways, but after coming to South Carolina it all changed there. I used to never say "aint" and "yall" because honestly I thought it was a little silly. But before I knew it, I started using the southern terminology and began my ways as his "southern pearl."

Four months ago, on April 20, 2012, my best friend of four years got on his knee and proposed to me! We were friends before we started dating and it's kinda funny how everything worked out. Surrounded by friends and family, that day has got to be the most special day of my life... so far! And I wouldn't have trade it for the world. He's the sweetest and most charming guy I know and I just love him! Ofcourse. Thomas is my rock, my shoulder to lean on and best friend and girl could ever have! Starting our life together we have the cutest dog named Brice, after the Williams Brice Stadium. (YES! We are die hard Gamecock fans for life!) But cutting it short for tonight, I wanted to thank yall for letting me be able to share this all with you and cannot wait to share more of my life in the near future!!


xoxo Your Southern Pearl <3
