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
And just like that, summer's gone. Four months flew by in the blink of an eye and now I find myself sitting here at 11:07 pm on the eve of my junior year of college. In just 8 hours my alarm will sound and I'll wake up and catch the bus and start my third year of school and oh my gosh, am I excited! I'm in the minority of students who absolutely love school.

I was tough for me to learn how to pick out good fruit and understand which brands are good to trust and w
I just purchased an Erin Condren Timeless Planner and am completely obsessed with it. I have always been sort of OCD, especially when it comes to my schedule, so I thought I would switch from the Lilly Pulitzer agenda to the Timeless planner. The Timeless Planner offers me so much more as an organizer. You can design the pages to have different layouts. I chose the scheduled pages this year so I can block out times for classes and work and visualize how much time I have for b
We all know of the LBD (little black dress) and the LWD (little white dress) but not many know of the power that the LND can bring. The "little navy dress" is something that every girl needs in her closet. Navy is such a versatile color and can be worn from early Spring all the way through late Fall. It's one of those colors that you can style a thousand different ways due to its versatility. The power of a LND is incredible and is a great thing to have on hand -- a secret w
I know that so many readers of Daily Dose of Prep are headed off to college this fall and I understand that it's a nerve-wracking time in your life. College is a big adjustment whether you're staying close to home or moving far away, either way there are a few things to know when you head to college. 1. You will get homesick.
