This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Brita. All opinions are 100% mine. So, I go back to school in two days. TWO! I only finished my back to school shopping yesterday and that’s when I realized there are probably a ton of back to college essentials that many students forget. If you’re living in the dorms as I am, there is so much you need that most students simply don’t think of. To help out fellow students who are rushing to their local stores in a last-minute panic I wanted to provide a list of items that you need,… View Post

Goals for my Sophomore Year! Like many students, I don’t think of years as being from January to January, rather I feel a year is from August to August. The new year begins when the new school year begins. I decided that I wanted to publish my top goals for this year to potentially inspire you, but also to keep myself accountable.

Keeping up with my back to school posts, I thought I would share two super easy DIY’s that you can use in your dorm room (or anywhere else, for that matter!) I am super into decorating my dorm, because let’s be honest – the dorms are an awfully depressing place to be.

A bit of spray paint, a hot glue gun, and a spare hour or two and you’ll brighten up the confines of… View Post

*When I decided to write a post on starting a blog I had no clue it would be so long. This post took me hours on hours to write and edit, and it’s over 3000 words – it is very detailed and it talks about what to do after starting a blog, too. So don’t let the length scare you, it is very thorough and walks you through nearly everything you would need to know about starting a blog! It’s no secret that I’ve fallen in love with blogging – otherwise why would I be here right now? Starting a blog… View Post

In light of back to school, I decided to continue my college tips series for the next few weeks. I have been getting an overwhelmingly amazing response on them the past few days, inspiring me to add more great content for my lovely readers 🙂 I have a list of posts I thought I could write regarding college, and study tips are at the top of the list. You may have been an academic hotshot in high school, but in college everything changes. The professors expect more from you, you aren’t reminded of important dates, and you are the only one… View Post
