Goodbye, Winter Break


Ahh!!! I can't believe I am heading back to school today for my last semester of college! I am excited, sad, and a little nervous, as always with a new semester. Although this is my eighth time around the block, starting a new semester of school never comes without a few bumps in the road. I can't believe this is it!

The Best Puffer Ever


Yesterday I had a little work sesh with my friend Koryn, which meant shooting a few photos and spending a couple of hours working at our fave coffee shop! I always love spending time with Koryn because she just gives off such good vibes and I always leave her feeling refreshed and inspired, and usually with a few Instagram photos to post ;)

I wore my faux leather puffer and decided it is worthy of an entire blog post. You guys... this puffer. It is the best thing I own.



I bought it a couple of months ago on Bloomingdales, where it is still available in most sizes and colors! However, now it is available at over 50% off in a few sizes and colors here!! Even at full price, you'd be shocked at the quality you're getting with this puffer... it is by far the warmest coat I own! Even warmer than my parka!! And because it's faux leather, it stays dry and cozy when it's sleeting, snowing, or just wet and gross outside.

For size reference, I am wearing it in a size small. It is meant to be a little oversized and roomy, so I would suggest taking your normal size, or down one size if you're in between (I'm usually a size small or medium in everything, hence I took the small).

Not only is it so cute and warm, but it goes with everything! I have gotten endless compliments on it, and I think everyone needs it!!

And just because we're here, this is the beanie I've been wearing all season long. It's only $10 and I love it.

Winter Sorority Recruitment Outfit Guide (pt. 2)


When looking through my analytics to determine blog post ideas for this year, I noticed that for the last two years, my most popular post has been my winter sorority recruitment outfit guide! I shared this the winter of my sophomore year, a year after I had gone through winter recruitment myself, and I feel that now it could use a little update provided that it's so well-loved amongst many of you going through the process year after year!

Cookie Exchange Party Recap


The Saturday before Christmas I hosted my annual cookie exchange party with all of my friends! Although it's now a few weeks in the past, I still want to share a recap of the party for future reference. I've been hosting this party with my mom for five years now, and it's our favorite annual tradition. 

Warning: there are a lot of photos below!

2019 Reflection + Goals For 2020

i used the exact same image when i wrote my goals for 2017!

On paper, 2019 was a really great year. I traveled, spent time with my family, saw some of my favorite bands in concert, and even had the biggest weight lifted off my shoulders when I received multiple job offers for after graduation! Yesterday I shared my highlights throughout the year, and it was nice to take a step back and realize how many great adventures I had throughout this past year. However, to me, 2019 was a bit of a disappointment, and it all had to do with my mindset.
