WINTER OBSESSIONS 2018

Happy March! Last night I turned in my final assignment for this week, so w00t it’s officially spring break!! One of my favorite things in life is witnessing the seasons change. This year seasonal depression hit a bit too hard, so I’m extra happy at witnessing the earth get greener and more livelier. *cue birds…

“FRIENDS”

This is going to be a weird post to write considering I might have actual friends reading this (love u). Lately, I’ve been getting the feeling that I don’t have friends anymore. In my head I know this isn’t true – I have friends in my classes, friends from high school, friends I met at…

A YA BOOK WORTH READING – ONE OF US IS LYING

(no-spoiler book review) Last week I finished reading One of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus and my gosh I still can’t stop thinking about it. I don’t want to reveal too much but honestly, it’s one of the best young adult books I’ve read in a while. Before reading it, I heard it advertised…

DO WHAT YOU HATE

Happy 2018!! It’s very common to hear people proclaimย “do what you love”, but very rarely do people talk about doing things they hate (without complaining). Now, I’m not saying that you should go out and pursue a career you hate or order sushi when you hate seafood, I’m talking more about those mundane or pesky…

ACTUAL GOALS FOR 2018

In my last post I mentioned a few vague resolutions for the new year (live fearlessly, focus on myself, etc.), but I wanted to also lay out a few concrete goals (speak it into existence, am I right?): finish at least one round of Kayla Itsines’ BBG program read at least 50(!!) books try my…

2017 IN REVIEW

2017 has been an… interesting year to say the least. The first half of the year started out great, but the second half has been (still is?) a ferris wheel of ups and down. To quote Kylie Jenner circa 2016, this year has seriously been for “like, realizing stuff.” First off, let me go through…

EARLY WINTER HAUL

Bonjour!! I’ve been shopping a lot recently and decided to make a mini-Winter haul for the blog. This season I’ve been loving everything soft and fluffy (which you’ll see soon) and have also been loving the colors burgundy and tan. A few of the things aren’t available online but I’ve tried to link them all…

ALMOST ADULTING

(book review….sort of) I just finished reading the book Almost Adulting by Arden Rose. If you don’t know Arden, she’s an actress, a popular lifestyle guru on Youtube, and has her own podcast with her boyfriend Will. I don’t normally read Youtuber books, however, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Almost Adulting is the perfect book…

If you need any last-minute ideas for Secret Santa gifts, White Elephant gifts, stocking stuffers, or just Christmas gifts in general and don’t want to get stuck with giving a gift card, you’ve come to the right place.

WHAT I’M THANKFUL FOR

Happy Thanksgiving! My family doesn’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, but I admire the idea of reflecting on what I’m thankful for. Here are just some of the things I am thankful for this year: My friends and family (obviously) People who bring me food Being able to order food online The ability to travel and see…
