This Week's Top 10: 10 Pieces I'm Packing


I leave tomorrow at 6 AM for my birthday vacation to Palm Beach, and I really am so excited to celebrate with my dad (who I haven't seen since May!) and take a few days just to relax and unwind. Since my internship ended last week I almost feel like I've been busier, tackling things I hadn't been able to when I was at work all day and tired afterward. I am looking forward to doing nothing for a few days, celebrating my ~golden~ birthday (20!) on Monday, and getting a little tan (or, more likely, a major sunburn) before school starts soon. Instead of a typical top 10, I thought it would be fun to share 10 pieces I'm packing for the trip!

Life Lately: ZBB Concert + Apartment Progress


Happy Tuesday friends! I've had an exciting past few days and wanted to write a little update on what I've been up to! I always think back to six and a half years ago when I started my blog (insane) and used to post about whatever I was doing or what was on my mind, and I think it's fun to come full circle and still do that kind of thing now too.

How to Balance Life in College

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cengage Unlimited. The opinions and text are all mine.

Heading into my junior year of college and first year in the business school (where I'll finally start taking relevant classes to my major!) I'm already stressed about how I'm going to balance my social life with school, a job, blogging, exercising, and breathing all year.

Decor Finds Under $100!


Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start! I unfortunately didn't plan a ton of content for this week, but I hate being so quiet on here so I thought I'd just pop on and share some recent decor finds. If you've been keeping up around here recently, decorating my new apartment has been top of mind for me, and I've been shopping around trying to find the best affordable decor pieces.

This Week's Top 10


1. I'm moving into my new apartment today!! I can't wait to fill my new space and start planning out how I want it to look for the rest of the year. Just to clarify-- I'm not actually heading back to school for about a month, I'm just moving up some furniture and decor today to get a little reminder of what my apartment looks like (we toured it so long ago!).

2. Tuckernuck is currently having 25% off everything!!! This is huge considering how rare their sales are. My everyday Ray-Bans are included, along with the perfect summer wedges and this crisp, classic shirtdress, to name a few favorites.

3. I ordered this cute straw bag (just $25! such a steal!) for my upcoming trip to Palm Beach. On the same note, I can't stop thinking about this dress for the trip and might need to pull the trigger on it... thoughts?
