G'BYE SOPHoMORE YEAR

I am still in disbelief that I am halfway finished with college... like what! Sophomore was more than I could have ever imagined, in the best way. I met some of my best friends and just some people that left lasting impacts on my life. The year was spent living in my sorority house, which was quite the time! As annoying as it got living with 35 or so girls and sharing a bathroom with 5 other girls, I will miss waking up to my best friends and be having so many closets to swap with. The biggest kicker of the year was my older sister GRADUATING! I cannot imagine Carolina without her, but also cannot wait to see what her future holds.

LIFE UPDATE + FORMAL 2018

Helloooo everybody! It has been very sad for me not to be able to put as much attention and effort into my blog over the past few months, but it was honestly much needed so that I could focus on it when I knew I really had the time, aka now! This has been an extremely busy and stressful semester. I ended up rushing and pledging a co-ed professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi, which basically took over my life for a few months. We had Fashion Week for my club Fashion Board at USC which I am on exec for, and just a lot of sorority events in general. I worked the Masters Tournament in Augusta, GA (that was cool)! All the stress and time was definitely worth it though because this semester has been pretty great. I cannot believe sophomore year is coming to an end. What better way to finish it off than a fabulous formal with all of my favorite people and with my sister who is about to graduate (crazyyy)!

SPRING BREAK IN THE WINDY CITY

HOLY MOLY. It feels good to be blogging again! Honestly, this semester has taken a lot out of me, and I am busier than I have been in a long time. Being busy is no excuse for not blogging, but I simply needed some time to regroup so I could put out great content.

What a more perfect time to get back into things than Spring Break! I went to Chicago, which yes you are probably wondering why on Earth would you go to Chicago for Spring Break. I visited my friends who live here and I found a really affordable flight, I could not pass it up! I had three jam-packed days in this windy city, all thanks to my incredible tour guide and photographer, Amanda. This post is pretty long, but it's worth the read!

SC HER CAMPUS - IN HER SHOES 2018

Last week, I attended HerCampus South Carolina's Event, In Her Shoes, as a guest blogger. This event was student-led and featured over a dozen women making a difference in public relations and media fields. This event was a fantastic view of how different women view success and came about their careers. I thought I would share with you today a reflection of the main ideas I took away from the speakers and the outfit I wore to the event!

HOW TO STAY FIT IN COLLEGE

I have to admit... I am a victim of the "freshman 15", and it is okay. It is okay if you are not a victim too, go you dude! I thought staying fit in college was going to be so easy until I realized I was so so wrong. It is very easy to get caught up in the new and exciting life of college and to put your health on the back burner. I got into a little bit of a funk, but am ready to jump back on this health horse for the sake of my body (I think I have finally accepted I will never get my high school volleyball body back, its fine I'm fine)! This post may seem a little cliche, but these are four ways that have actually helped me stay somewhat fit while in college and that I will continue to follow. Also, let's be real, it is probably one of your New Year's resolutions, so why not try to not break it? I believe in you!
Here are my FOUR tips to stay fit:

THE BEST PLACE TO SHOP TRENDS!

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today's post is about a store we all know and love... Target. This may come as a surprise to some of you, but Target's style department is almost always on point. They also recently launched new brands, that are chic and constantly innovating. I am telling y'all Target is more than just a killer dollar section! My favorite part of Target is definitely their shoes and their coats. 75% of the time if someone compliments my shoes, I will say, "thanks, Target!", and they get so confused.  Target's shoe section is constantly evolving, but also staying classic. All of my shoes are extremely comfortable and $50 or under, so I can wear them however much I want and not worry about ruining them too much. My favorites are my Black Over The Knee Boots and my Short Black Leather Booties. I had been on the hunt for the perfect pair of black leather booties and was shook when Target was the place I found them, but hey, not complaining! They are the booties I am wearing in this post. But, y'all... THIS COAT. I am in love. I have been wanting a cheetah faux fur coat, and when I stumbled upon this one in Target the other day, I knew I needed it. It is the perfect statement piece and actually keeps you warm. Basically, you need it too! This long one is sold out online, so I linked a very similar one from Target, but definitely still check your local Target because I was lusting for this one online and got lucky in-store.
