HAPPY HALF-NEW YEAR: NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS CHECK-UP

Happy almost-mid June! Wow, I can’t believe we are already 6 months into 2017. So far it’s been such a blur to me. This year has been great for my self-improvement and wanderlust. I visited Vegas again, went to Canada for the first time, finally fulfilled my Gossip Girl dreams and set foot in Manhattan,…

WISE WORDS FROM BROOKE DAVIS

“Someone once said; ‘It’s the good girls who keep diaries. The bad girls never have the time. Me? I just wanna live a life I’m gonna remember. Even if I don’t write it down.” – Brooke Davis Brooke Davis from One Tree Hill is one of my favorite badass women on television. I admire her…

DATING MYSELF BUCKET LIST

I am an only child so I was pretty independent growing up. I’m quite comfortable doing alone many things most of my friends wouldn’t. I remember heading to the student center in between classes once and finding a friend quickly rushing to the door with a bag of McDonalds. After doing the hey-how-are-you-me-too convo I asked…

BENEFITS OF CHIA SEEDS

  If you’ve been trying to eat healthy, I’m sure you’ve heard of chia seeds. I personally had no idea what chia seeds actually did for your body. They just sounded healthy so I would just toss them into my smoothies on my acai bowls. Today I finally did some research and found out some…

PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER

“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel…

FEELING UNMOTIVATED + other stuff

I’ve written about half a dozen drafts and can’t seem to write anything that makes me feel excited. If you read my Quality vs. Quantity post, you’ll know that I want to write quality content but I just don’t know about what right now. Usually when I find myself in a rut I spend the…

BUILD YOUR DREAM BOY

I can’t even begin to fathom how many times my friends and I have uttered the phrase “if only I could build my dream boyfriend”. Sorry to disappoint ladies, eBae still doesn’t exist yet, but a girl can still dream a little. Last week I made a post on why I’m a happily single hopeless…

HOW TO BE A #GIRLBOSS

I finally finished the book #GIRLBOSS by founder of Nasty Gal (a multi-million dollar fashion company), Sophia Amoruso. Amoruso’s book is somewhere between a personal memoir and heaps of business advice. She recalls anecdotes from her pre-Nasty Gal life (i.e. dumpster-diving for bagels) and offers business advice not only from herself but from other badass women as well. Amoruso created…

SANDALS FOR SUMMER

I love wearing sandals during the summer months. They’re so easy to slip on and look cute with several outfits. I was searching the web for a new pair and here are some of my new finds:   Happy walking! xx – k.s.      

BEING PRODUCTIVE 24/7

Something I’ve noticed in our generation, especially with students, is the constant need to be productive. Essentially, if we aren’t being productive we are wasting time. I spent the last two days watching Netflix, reading, and finishing assignments for my summer class and still feel extremely guilty for not doing something “professionally” productive. I feel as…
