Living in mid-Missouri, there are often days when I wake up in the morning for class and am absolutely freezing. So, I dress accordingly. By the time I get out of class at 3, I’m ready to get out of the clothes I’m in because I’m sweaty and gross, due to how quickly the weather has changed. Since this is such a common theme that reoccurs every year (or so it feels like), I decided to put together a list of my most trusty pieces that have served me under all weather conditions. Each piece that I’m sharing with you… View Post

For years, I maintained an on-again, off-again relationship with podcasts. I never had the commitment to consistently listen to them. Now that I’ve found a ton of podcasts that I’m ultra-passionate about, I can’t stop listening to them. I’ve given up my Netflix shows in place of listening to podcasts. The best thing about them is that they only require listening, so, for multi-taskers like me, it’s awesome because you can cook, do laundry, clean your room, etc. without being glued to a screen to know what’s going on! I love listening to a variety of podcasts that cover all… View Post

If you couldn’t guess by the title, today I’m going to be talking about a trend that has really popped back up lately that I’m not at all sad to see. Maxi + Midi dresses. It seems that this time, however, the trend is specifically focused on more bohemian style maxi and midi dresses ~ so far I haven’t spotted any tight, hip-hugging maxis, and I am SO okay with this. Boho has always been one of my favorite styles out there. If I could look as though I stepped off of the Free People website everyday, that would be great!… View Post

With midterms looming around the corner, my stress is at an all-time high level right now. I’m taking 20 credit hours of classes, holding two internships, working on – campus, and actively participating in a multitude of activities around campus. This is a fun semester full of friends and new things, but it’s also a very stressful one. I’m also currently getting over a sinus infection and bronchitis, so it’s definitely time for me to play catch-up now for some of the classes I missed this last week. Since there is a lot of stress happening, I would guess you’re going… View Post

Ireland was the final destination of our three week long spring break. By the time we arrived in Dublin by way of Budapest, we were pretty much crabby and exhausted, to be quite honest. I was getting extremely sick at this point of the trip, and there was even a point when we were in Dublin when our friends wanted to go explore, but Josh was kind enough to stay with me at the hostel to watch Braveheart, because I was so sick. If you were to ask me about our hostel experience, I would probably have nothing good to say… View Post

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
