A more appropriate title may have been: confessions of a compulsive scheduler. Never in my life have I been one to be completely organized with my life put together. And for the most part – that’s still true. My desk is a mess, my sock drawer is a disaster area, and I can’t tell you how many bobby pins are scattered about this tiny dorm room. But with a quick glance at my planner you would probably try to institutionalize me for an organization compulsion. I have never really used a planner before. I mean, I’d always had them and sometimes would write… View Post

Today I would like to introduce all of you you to someone very special: My Zumba instructor, IK, who is going to be the latest woman I am featuring in my You Go Girl! Series. If any of you have ever done Zumba, then you know that it is energizing, fun, and powerful. Coincidentally, I would use those same words to describe I.K.. I was fortunate enough to meet I.K last October when my mom and I were invited to her class by my boyfriend’s mom. We were both hooked, and lets be honest – as fun as Zumba is, half the reason… View Post

So, my last post was all about saving money – today I am going in the opposite direction and talking about spending money. I love clothes and fashion as much as the next girl, but as previously discussed – I hate spending money. Which is why I am always on the look out for good deals and steals.

When I’m online shopping… View Post

I have always been good about saving money, ever since I was a little girl. Back then saving money made me feel like a ‘big kid’ and now not much has changed. I thoroughly weigh the pros and cons of purchases before I make them – even over silly things like an eight dollar tube of mascara. With that said, over the years I have come up with some pretty great ways to budget and save my money, and considering that 85% of my readers are college aged females there is a good chance that you might be looking for… View Post

So, lately I have had a lot of lovely ladies reaching out to me for advice on how they can start their own blog. While I have a step by step guide detailing how to actually set a blog up – there is so much to actually blogging successfully than just making the blog itself (obviously.) But what’s not so obvious is how to attract readers, build social media, and create buzz about your little corner of the internet. I’ve been blogging for a little over 7 months now (crazy!!!) and I have learned so much in that time. I sort of jumped into blogging blind… View Post
