Summer Book Reviews (Part I)


I'm excited to share the books I've read so far this summer. If you're a longtime reader, you might remember a few of the summer reading posts I shared last summer, including this one and this one. This summer's selections probably won't be much different, consisting majorly of beach reads and light fiction, but nonetheless hopefully you will find some of these books appealing!

Self-Care Summer with Olay


As summer is now in full swing, I've been going the extra mile to get my skin as healthy as possible. A few months ago I began a new skincare regimen, but the part of skincare that most people forget about is that well cared for skin goes much further than just your face and neck! When it comes to my whole body, I'm the worst about ensuring that I moisturize as much as I should. This is especially problematic during the summer when I am often wearing shorts, skirts, dresses, and sleeveless tops. Who wants dry legs and arms when you could have glowy, moisturized skin? Olay reached out to me about their new body wash available at Costco, and I knew this would be the perfect product for me: a body wash that actually moisturizes your skin, so you don't have to after the shower!

A Week Up North


The first week of summer (aka the second week of May), my friends and I drove over four hours up north Wisconsin to my roommate, Celia's, family cabin. The group included all but one of our friends who went on our spring break trip to Mexico, and it was such a fun way to kick off the summer! Although it was a few weeks ago now, it was just too fun not to share some photos from the week.

Internship Outfit Ideas (Under $100)

It's the official first day of my internship!!! Woooo!! I can't wait to see what this summer has in store for me and keep you all updated on how my internship goes. This was a very popular post last summer, so here we are again with another round of internship outfit ideas! Really anyone working in a business casual setting could benefit from this little round-up of work appropriate attire; I know I am always looking for ways to update my "work wardrobe." Especially since this is my third internship, I have grown tired of the clothes I've been wearing for the last two summers and in need of a few new pieces. Not to mention, this summer I will be surrounded by over 100 other interns and working for a retail company, so I definitely want to step up my game!

May Playlist: WTF Do People Do In May?


HI! Wow, yesterday's blog post was kind of a lot. Today I want to lighten the mood and share my May Playlist as this month comes to a close. Last month I shared my April playlist and enjoyed giving you all a glimpse into my music taste. I am quite a melophile (lol, I googled this term-- melo means music and phile is a suffix for fanatic/enthusiast); constantly discovering new music and developing playlists, so I want to continue to share them here!
