BACK TO COLLEGE SHOPPING LIST

I cannot believe how quickly the summer is going by! I'm excited to go back to college and just wrote out my shopping list and thought I would share it! I have always loved back to school shopping for clothes and school supplies and love buying items for my dorm now for college too! I buy most items for my dorm from either Target or Amazon. The only back to school shopping that I don’t like now that I am in college is shopping for textbooks! They are so expensive, luckily this semester I was able to rent all of my textbooks from Amazon and Chegg! This made my textbook shopping much cheaper and super easy!

HydroFlask
I just picked this HydroFlask up for school this year and am already obsessed! It keeps my water extremely cold and most importantly it doesn't sweat or have condensation on the outside of it.

Throw Pillows
I have been on the hunt for a couple new throw pillows for my bed this year and have so far found two from Target's Opalhouse collection. I love this lumbar …

WHAT TO DO BEFORE STARTING COLLEGE

This photo was taken a few weeks into my first semester of college outside of my dorm!
Before leaving for your Freshman year of college, there are a few things that I think are important to do. It is important to feel like you are prepared before going to college and while some of these may be obvious I thought it would be a good idea to share what I would do if I was a Freshman again just starting college.

VENMO
Everyone I know uses Venmo to pay each other back for whatever! It's so handy because you don't have to have cash or change when you owe someone money and deposits directly into your checking account. It makes things like splitting an Uber with your friends much easier. Creating a Venmo account takes certain information that would be easier to set up while you're still home so that's why I recommend setting up before college.

HAIR & BROWS
If you are moving far away to college, you probably will not know who to go to for your hair and eyebrows when you first…

AMAZON PRIME TOP PICKS

So, obviously I'm like the majority of people and absolutely love Amazon Prime! Today I am sharing some of my favorite Amazon Prime purchases and many of the items that I am constantly reordering, because it is so easy to just order them on Amazon and have them shipped to me in 2 days.
Reoccurring Purchases Amazon Basic 6ft lightning cords - These are so great for under $10, I am constantly breaking or loosing or just needing another charger.
Floral Arrangements - These can be SO expensive to have delivered from flower shops, but if you know ahead of time you can order beautiful flowers off of Amazon for far less!
Velvet Hangers - I am constantly shopping, which causes me to need more hangers, so it's great to be able to just order more whenever I run out!
The Couple Next Door - I just finished this book a few weeks ago and it was SO good, if you haven't read my review, you can read it here! This can be categorized under "reoccurring pouches, because I love ordering books…

JULY 2018 WISH LIST

I cannot believe it's already over halfway through the month! This month's wish list consists of some of my favorite summer pieces that I am considering ordering. I love summer fashion, however, I work as a nanny which means that I really don't wear the type of cute clothes everyday in the summer, which is really disappointing because it's hard to justify buying them. You can see below all of my July summer wish list picks!

A SUMMER READ: THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR

There's nothing I love more than sitting by my pool reading a great book in the summer sun! The type of books that I tend to be drawn to are ones that are really able to keep my attention, because otherwise I will not finish reading them! Today's book recommendation is no exception! It was such a quick read that kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more.
This past weekend I finished reading The Couple Next Door and I HIGHLY recommend it! If you have read the book The Girl on the Train, you will absolutely love this book! It's the perfect "beach book" because it's a serious page turner! I don't read a ton and I finished this book in ONE week, so you know from that what a great read it is!
Without giving anything away... this novel is really able to keep your attention because there are constant plot twists right up until the end! It keeps you on the edge of your seat and really never got boring like a lot of books because it shied away from includin…
