Gift Guide: My List (+ Big Gift Reveal)




I've decided to lump in my own Christmas list into my mix of gift guides this year because I thought it would be fun to share some gift ideas that I personally have my eyes on! Although I would love everything on this list, that's unrealistic! I am asking for something really, really big this year anyways, so anything else would just be above and beyond. In no way at all am I actually expecting to receive all the things on this list (or any of them, really), even though I'd love to find them under the tree. Keeping reading to find out what the big gift I'm asking for is...

This Week's Top 10


1. Happy Friday! I'm so excited that in two weeks I will officially be on winter break for a month! I couldn't get my last exam moved as I'd hoped, so I'm unfortunately here until the 21st... The countdown starts now.

2. It was a fun week on the blog! I shared a ton of exciting content, including:

3. Has anyone tried this face mask? It has great reviews but I'd love to hear if any of you have tried it or have any other face mask recommendations?

Complete Winter Sorority Recruitment Outfit Guide


This post has been a highly requested one this fall. I went through winter sorority recruitment last year and I have been getting so many questions about what to wear during the rounds. Recruitment is different at every school, but for the most part it's always a weather-related disaster when it comes to planning outfits. Southern schools typically recruit in the fall when it's way too hot outside, and midwest/east coast schools recruit in the winter when it's snowing and freezing cold. Who thought that was a good idea? Between standing outside houses in freezing temperatures and sitting in a stuffy house or classroom, there is definitely an art to layering for winter recruitment. Here are my tips, suggestions, and ideas (warning! this post is a long one!):

Gift Guide: Under $25




I'm back today with another gift guide! I wanted to put this one up last week but I found so many gift ideas under $25 that I could finish the whole post in time. For the same reason I also wanted to keep it simple today and share just one gift guide instead of 3. If you enjoy the gift ideas I've found here, you can shop more ideas under $25 on the page under the "shop" tab above, or by clicking here to head straight there! For now, more about the gifts above... I think they're all so fun and would make amazing presents without spending too much money. I also like the idea of using them as stocking stuffers or even combining a few for an extra exciting gift!

Holiday Dresses & Shoes




I'm starting to think about what I want to wear for Christmas and New Year's this year, and I love all twelve of the party dresses/jumpsuits I've rounded up today! Most are under $200, but my favorite is this velvet jumpsuit that's even under $100. However, I always find the most fun part of holiday attire to be all the shoes... velvet, pom-poms, bows, ribbons... it's like wearing a present on your feet!
