FRIDAY FIVE | 5.11.18

Well, I have officially been home from college for one week today! I am almost completely moved back in...but I came home with way more clothes/shoes than I actually have room for so that has been quite the struggle! I have absolutely loved the free time to get back into blogging this week. Here are five different things I had to share about from this week. Have a great weekend!

ONE | Summer Blogging Goals
This week one of my favorite bloggers Taylor Morgan posted a Q&A on her blog: Little Blonde Book and answered one of my questions - What are some of you best blog tips? For photos? Content ideas? And her answer was super helpful! I love hearing blogging tips from bloggers about their process. It always inspires me! If you haven't read her Q&A you can check it out here.
Now that I am not at college I have so much more free time to work on the blog and it makes me so happy! I have posted four different posts already this week which is exactly what I wanted to do! I have been working on next week's content to and thankfully tonight I will be shooting some outfits for the upcoming week which I am super excited about! My goals for the blog this summer include posting 5 posts a week on the blog, which is accomplished this week! My other goal is to work on my Instagram, which I really didn't do well this week. So this weekend I plan on taking a ton of photos and really working hard on my Instagram the rest of the summer! So, be sure to follow me on Instagram to see new posts!

TWO | Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
A few weeks ago I picked up the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion at Anthropologie because I had wanted to try it for a while. It seriosuly dries out zits! Just be careful of over using it because it really dries them out so well!

THREE | Graduation Gifts
Earlier in the week I came across this post from Carly the Prepster, one of my all time favorite bloggers (if you haven't checked her blog out yet, you definitely should!!) where she shared a Graduation Gift Guide, so if you're looking for ideas for Graduation Gifts, be sure to checkout her post!

FOUR | Nashville
Sarah posted a mural guide for Nashville and OMG this seriously made me want to go to Nashville and take amazing photos asap! If you haven't seen her post The Ultimate Insta-Worthy Guide to 20 Murals in Nashville. Planning a trip to Nashville with me anyone?!

FIVE | Hat Walls
I created a mini hat wall in my room at home and I love it! I think hat walls are so cute, unfortunately I neither have the room nor the number of hats needed for some of the amazing hat walls I found on Pinterest that inspired this. If you're considering a hat wall checkout these pins.

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …


Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!



Well, it’s official, I’m no longer a teenager, on Sunday I turned 20! So, in honor of having two decades of my life under my belt, today I am sharing twenty things I have learned in the past twenty years! Holy crap, I cannot believe how old I am, now that I am writing this post, haha!
ONE – Stay positive Over the last year specifically I have really learned that positivity is one of the most important characteristics that I want to have. When someone thinks of me, I want them to think of a positive person. Just trying to be more positive really helps me to just have a better day and to be an overall happier person in general. While the rest of this post is not in order based on importance, this is my number one thing I have learned before I turned 20!
TWO – Be grateful I have realized it’s important to take the time to remember to be extremely grateful for everything I have, you never know how long you will have something. It’s important to be grateful especially for the little things in …
