Can you believe it's the last day of July? Where has the summer gone? I guess eat, work, sleep, repeat makes for a pretty fast paced few months. In just two and a half weeks I'll be back in Harrisonburg and I can't contain myself. I need to get back into my routine as soon as possible. I miss my friends, my apartment and the JMU atmosphere in general. During these last few weeks home though, I am going to enjoy spending time with my family. I'm also going to enjoy the last fe
This weekend was hectic and relaxing at the same time. Is that even possible? Apparently so! Between delicious meals, recruitment video editing, a trip to the radio station and even a nap or two I feel like I successfully exhausted myself after only two days! Follow along my Saturday in my vlog below!
Once again, back with another recruitment post! Every year I get dozens of messages from readers asking about what to wear for recruitment and every year I post a roundup of cute and affordable dresses that are perfectly appropriate for rush. I do have a few general rules on what to wear and what not to wear to recruitment. These are tried and true rules for every school's rush, even if they aren't explicitly stated. First, make sure that you cover everything up. You will be
Back to school is upon us, there I said it. My last back to school season as a student! Literally, what?! As I start to look for my final undergrad planner and one last pack of colored pens for organizing my student life, I want to share my senior advice with my freshman self. As a freshman in college I was so small! I was mentally, physically, and emotionally small. A quick four years later and I feel like a totally different person. Although there is so much to learn, and s
I've returned home from vacation which means summer for me is just about over. July was busy though! Between internship events, birthday celebrations, and family vacation it seems like every single moment so far has been scheduled down to the very second. Despite the hectic month, it was a full of laughter and love, which is all I can ever ask for when I'm with my family and friends. I've gotten much better at stopping and taking pictures of beautiful or intrersting places an
I love shopping SheInside for swim because in reality, a swimsuit is going to be relatively worn through after a few summers. I would rather spend high dollars on a nice coat or pair of shoes before a swimsuit. SheInside has been the haven for everything affordable swim. You have to be cautious when looking at size charts on this site though -- just make sure to give it a glance before checking out. The top and bottom are oftentimes sold together so you'll get a top and botto
I'm back with another Nordstrom Sale roundup! The sale has been great so far! I really have to commend Nordstrom for putting a plethora of brands a price points on sale for every kind of shopper out there. What I really commend them on though is sharing plenty of autumnal wear too, as we gear up for fall. I shared on Instagram my dislike for the "Nordstrom Sale culture" that seems to flock Instagram for three weeks while the sale is going on. I received an overwhelming amount
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us! I have a love-hate relationship with the Nordstrom Sale and everything that comes with it. I hate the excessive buying just to buy that bloggers flaunt all over social media and the "I can afford this, so everyone can too!" attitude that seems to be popping up all over feeds. Last year, I finally had to just get off social for a few days!
That being said, I think the sale itself is great. As a blogger, I can't afford a majority of t
After many requests, I’m back with another YouTube video! This highly requested video is answering your recruitment questions. There are a few topics that I get asked about on a daily basis and recruitment and greek life seem to always float among the FAQ’s. Understandably so! Going through recruitment is a daunting and emotional process. I would say I’m a seasoned recruitment veteran by now seeing as I’ve gone through recruitment from every possible angle (minus a Rho Gamma,
First Weekly Skinny of being 21! I had a fantastic weekend with my friends and family -- thank you to those who wished me well into my 21st year!
