    Gift Guide: The Experience

    Are you buying for the person who has everything? This gift guide is for them! Instead of shopping for items, it is all about different experiences you can help them out with! When thinking about different gift guides, I knew I needed to make one for the person who has everything. When creating the Gift Guide: The Experience, I tried to think about things that make people happy. I created a list of different experiences that people in your life might enjoy. When making this gift guide, I tried to think about what people wouldn’t spend money on. Subscriptions for coffee? Not everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s why it…

    Gift Guide: The Entertainer

    I debated heavily about doing gift guides this year. However, I know there are some people that are impossibly hard to shop for! My love language is gifts though, so I love this time of year! A gift guide takes a lot of work, but I think they’re worth it! I’m not sure how many gift guides I will do this year, but I want to make sure I get a couple of different ones up. Do you have any that you want to see? Comment below and let me know! Lacquer Rectangle Tray | This tray is customizable and it’s able to be used all year long. I love…

    Lilly Pulitzer Resort Wishlist

    Lilly Pulitzer has dropped their first resort (aka winter) release of the year! I absolutely love shopping at Lilly, and I have loved it since I was a mini (sorry mom and dad). For once, Lilly has done some items in *red*. I honestly cannot remember a time that Lilly has done red. However, I am here for it! Onyx is also back with a ton of great options. Most of the year, Lilly holds true to navy being the neutral of choice; however, onyx comes back in the late fall into the resort season.

    Fall Fashion

    It’s October! I literally could not be more excited for fall fashion to finally be weather appropriate. Supposedly, we’re going to have a warmer than normal October, but that isn’t bumming me out too much. When I’m looking at pieces to purchase for fall, I’m looking at pieces I can wear for years. I don’t want to participate in fast fashion, and that is one of the easiest ways to prevent falling into the trap of fast fashion. My favorite pieces are ones that are versatile and things I can wear for multiple seasons and year after year. I pulled together these items because of they fit the bill! I…

    Being Single in Your 20s

    Single. This seems like a daunting fact of life. Especially as you get older, everyone wants to know who you’re dating, why you aren’t dating, or what happened to so and so. Between the people who I work with and my close friend group, I’m one of two people that are single. Yes, you read that right-two. Everyone sees all these people, and believe me, all over TikTok, that are gushing about their relationships. They may be talking about Ring by Spring (this is a pretty southern tradition, where people meet in the fall time and get engaged by the spring). I also keep getting thrown into the wedding/engagement side…

    Fast Fashion

    Fast fashion seems to be all the rage-especially with how Shein has stayed at the top of the game. However, they’re not the first fast fashion brand, and certainly won’t be the last. Remember Forever 21? They’re fast fashion, too. I will admit, I’m a shopaholic. However, I’ve been doing a lot better recently. I really think my surgery helped with that. However, I’ve noticed a disturbing trend on TikTok and around the rest of the internet (Instagram, other bloggers, etc.). have been shopping heavily at places like Shein. Shein is known for being very inexpensive, and often poor quality. But, what even is fast fashion? It’s the mass production…

    SororityTok & Recruitment

    SororityTok, #bamarush, whatever you want to call it has been taking over TikTok. As a sorority alumna, I’m so glad it is. Tiktok is one of the more favorable forms of social media at the moment, and college students are using it to share their lives, dances, and so much more. However, we’ve all noticed how quickly #bamarush took over. We fell in love and those who are sisters in a sorority (even alumnae!) began rooting for their favorites to find their home. I did not go to an SEC school, in fact, I went to one of the smaller schools in Virginia. My chapter was the 6th chapter on…

    Back to School Fall Fashion

    Back to school season is in full swing, which means fall fashion! I typically love fall fashion, so I’m super excited to see brands start putting the new season out. I’m starting with Old Navy, Loft, and Pink Lily. I’ve seen a few different tiktok’s the owner created and started to check them out when I did not fall items at a bunch of my favorite stores. Pink Lily is definitely not disappointing. The Back to School Fall Fashion Top Choices Floral Print Split Neck Poet Blouse | $29.99 | I love how sweet this top is. Sleeveless Tiered Floral Swing Dress | $34.99 | Florals for fall-actually groundbreaking. I…

    At-Home Workouts

    At-home workouts. Y’all, I will be the first person to say I’m a big believer in at-home workouts. I know everyone is different. Some need the routine of going to the gym. Others love their specific niche workout class. I love spin and riding horses, two things I currently can’t do at home. I’m keeping my eye out though for a good spin bike at a reasonable price. I’m currently not working out due to my knee issue. I just had an MRI and am still waiting to hear back from the doctor on what to do next. If you want to try your hand at some different at-home workouts,…

    Routines

    Routines are one of the most important things we can do for ourselves. Humans literally thrive from routine. We start having routines as soon as we are born. We are dictated by a sleep and feeding schedule. Later, our schedule is determined by the school and extracurricular activities. As we grow older, work and other activities create the majority of our schedule. Routines help us do things, like create a brand. What we do daily is often related to our personal brand. Following a routine helps us make sure we accomplish everything we need to get done. When we don’t have a routine, our lives suffer. We often struggle to…
