Since being back to school at Mizzou for the semester, I have definitely made my apartment my little cozy space that I always want to come back to after classes. Last year was my sophomore year of college, and I was only in this apartment for the first semester, since I spent second semester studying abroad. After getting back to the U.S., I’ve put a little more work into making this space feel like home. It’s pretty amazing, especially considering I have my own walk-in closet and a beautiful window looking over the woods and trails behind my house. Last year,… View Post

Do you ever just have one of those outfits in your closet that seems to be on repeat all. the. time? I’m so absolutely pumped that I have found that kind of look for this month’s uniform. Yes, it’s worn in a few different variations, but all in all, it’s the same outfit. Not only is this look so stinkin’ simple, it also just gives off such a cool vibe that’s also just effortless in the process. Katie Prestemon Photography helped me capture my favorite uniform in a fun photoshoot at the St. Louis Art Museum that I can’t wait to share… View Post

Hey friends. College is quite a costly time where you might find yourself spending lots of money. You’re buying all your own groceries, managing those all nighters by buying all the coffee you can, and attempting to have enough to afford a social life. That’s just touching on the day to day things…I haven’t even mentioned if you are paying for school or car insurance or rent or etc. etc. etc. yourself. Needless to say, being in college is crazy expensive. I wanted to put together a list of ways that you can earn a little bit of your own money while you’re juggling… View Post

Hey guys! I can’t believe that we’re already almost into the middle of September! It’s crazy how fast the month is flying by already. Whenever school starts, it never fails to feel like the year begins to roll full speed ahead. Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of hosting a back to school party in collaboration with Teen Vogue! I just wanted to share some of the fun party details with you so that you might be inspired to host your own back to school party this fall! Hosting a back to school party, I realized what a fun idea it… View Post

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and were able to relax and enjoy your time off. Whether you spent your weekend shopping, grilling out, at the lake, or any other way, I hope you had a great weekend with family and friends. This week, it’s back to school for me for my third week of the semester! It’s exciting that I have a short week ahead of me, but oh my goodness, it’s too early in the semester to already be needing the weekends this badly! 🙂 Today I wanted to share a fun collaboration I did so… View Post

Hey there, friends! Whether you’re heading back to your freshman year of high school or your final year of grad school, this letter is for you. I write this letter to you this morning coming from a place in my heart that knows you might need it. Because I needed it. So I wrote it to myself. And then proceeded to share it with you. Because who doesn’t want to read a bit of encouragement when feeling down? Or sense that they might get pretty stressed out soon? Going back to school sometimes brings those emotions. There are times when I… View Post
