Hey guys!   Today I partnered with a fellow blogger, Sophia Evans, who is today’s guest contributor to share some of her favorite tips for cleaning around the holidays. With many people’s to-do lists a mile long around the holidays, getting your house ready for guests seems incredibly daunting. However, Sophia is a pro and owns her own London-based cleaning company, Tidy Cleaners London, so she’s here today to share her expertise.    If you spend most of your time at work, then you’re probably losing track when it comes to dealing with the chores around your home. From my past experience, I can guess that you barely find enough time or energy to complete them all, especially at once. Even if you wipe down and organize in a regular…

Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. How crazy is it that the holidays are upon us already? This time of year also means that it is gift guide season! While I don’t go crazy making gift guides for every possible person or occasion, I always make a few catered to my favorite things. Enter traveling!

That being said, the main thing that’s been hard has been not getting to spend as much time with my roommates as I’d like. It took thinking outside the box to realize that we can catch up over a simple meal at dinner together despite our…

All opinions are mine alone. #SkinClearingMakeup #CollectiveBias Hey friends!  This semester, I’ve had a rude awakening – and I mean that in the most literal sense.

Hey friends! Do you ever just feel like your life is a little too cluttered at any given moment? I don’t know about you, but I feel like even if everything is in order, I always find something to stress out about or worry about. Senior year is going to be the year that I work on reducing this.

Since this obviously isn’t exactly possible or practical, this is my chance to work on myself instead. Here are three little tips and tricks that have helped me lower the stress in my life by a lot that I thought I would share with…
