Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Recipe for Fall


Hellloooo babes! So, after I complained about the heat in Madison in my Fall Wishlist post on Tuesday, my prayers were answered and yesterday was the perfect 60 degree fall day. In fact, it felt so much like fall that my inner basic white girl was craving all of the pumpkin spice ;) and I needed to act on it. I made a delicious pumpkin pie smoothie for dinner last night and it couldn't have hit the spot more! So easy, healthy, creamy, and full of fall flavors-- I was so excited when I did a little Instagram Story poll and you wanted me to share the recipe!

My Fall Wishlist


Even though the temperatures in Madison have yet to dip below the 80s, I know in just a few weeks the leaves will fall, the weather will get crisp, and everyone's favorite autumnal weather will be among us! This fall I am especially excited for the cool weather because it has been feeling so hot on campus lately, and I'm just itching for the day I can wear a sweater comfortably to class and not show up sweating (can other college girls relate?! walking into class dripping is the worst). Here's what's on my wishlist for when we reach my favorite 60-65 degree temps:



A Little Coziness Goes a Long Way

Hello, hello! I took a little blogging break these past two weeks to get settled in at school in my new apartment and get adjusted to my new schedule. I have five classes lined up in the business school this semester, so without a doubt it will be my most intense semester yet. After all, it's only been two weeks and I'm already drowning in homework every night! On a more positive note, I am spending a lot of time in my new room, both relaxing and being productive. I love how it turned out (the gallery wall is my favorite part!) and wanted to share a peek of it with you all...Tracking Pixel

This Week's Top 10: Back to School


1. Friday!!! And the end of August!!! To say this summer flew by would be an understatement, but don't we always feel that way? I had a four month summer, so I guess it's only fair to say that I am ready to head back to school. I go back on Sunday for my junior year!

2. After two weeks of back-to-back traveling, I'm home for the next 48 hours until school. I spontaneously visited my friends at Lehigh on the last day of my trip to New York just for fun and I am so glad I did. I hadn't been back since I transferred freshman year but it felt good to see the campus and be there one more time.

3. Luckily we have Labor Day on Monday, because this long weekend is necessary. I'll be spending my first days back in Madison just getting my sh*t together and tackling my school inbox that has been staring me down all summer... ugh.

Back to School with Hunter Boots


In just one week from today I'll be kicking off my junior year of college at the University of Wisconsin. How did that happen?! I feel like just yesterday I was starting my junior year of high school, and suddenly another four years have flown by. This year something I am very excited about for the school year is using the coolest Hunter backpack for class.
