Hi loves! Happy (almost) Valentine’s day!

It’s officially that time of the year again where single girls from all around gather together and bond over our singleness and ensure ourselves that we are TOTALLY okay with being single! Besides it’s 2018, women are totally rocking the whole “single girl” mojo right now anyway, right? At least this is what we tell ourselves to make this holiday a little less sad for those not receiving a dog, shaped heart full of chocolates this Wednesday.  Continue reading “Three Different Outfits You Should Be Wearing This Valentine’s Day”

How to get the perfect blow out + sticking to 2018 resolutions

Hi, loves! I hope everyone’s new year has been off to a good start so far and you are following through with all your new year resolutions! Every year I always sit down and make a list of things I want to achieve or become better at for the new year. I pick apart my flaws and tell myself that I will be better at them than I was the previous year. Well, time will go by and before you know it, that list gets tucked away under responsibilities and the reality of life and I will often find myself back in the same position I was in the year before.

Sound familiar? Continue reading “How to get the perfect blow out + sticking to 2018 resolutions”

An Open and Honest Post About Being A Blogger

At first when I was brainstorming ideas on what to write about this week, I, of course, thought about the usual things like something fashion related or fall fashion related or something of that sort. But then I looked at my agenda and had a slight panic attack; I had 9 million different things to do this week and no time to do them how in the world was I going to fit in about four hours of my day to write, edit, take pictures and put up a clothing blog post in one day when I have SO much to do?

Things I Wish I Had During Sorority Recruitment​

Hi loves! Sorority recruitment is just weeks away and I know every chapter on campus can’t wait to meet our PNM’s (potential new members) I didn’t know what this stood for when I first read that word so just in case you didn’t know either that’s what it means but moving on. Every sorority has been planning and double checking that everything is perfect for this upcoming recruitment year and we can’t wait to meet you girls and possibly call you our sister!

I remember when I went through recruitment, I was so excited to go through and meet every chapter on campus that I hardly slept the night before open house (the first day of recruitment). I picked out all my outfits in advanced and stalked every girl that had her sororities name in her Instagram bio and I was READY to go. As each day went by and I was one step closer to finding my forever home I often found myself in situations throughout the long days where I would think to myself “wow I wish I had this right now”. So instead of you making the same mistakes I did, I put together a list of things that you could bring with you to make your rush week as easy as possible.

 

  1. A Fan- Ladies, it’s the middle of August it’s HOT outside and it’s even hotter walking around all day long. So do yourself a favor and invest in a fan you will thank yourself later.

2. An Umbrella-  On the first day of open house it poured on us, We were all in grey t-shirts and it was hot and humid and let me tell y’all I looked like I had just walked out of a hurricane by house 5 of that day. It was rough, even my rain jacket was SOAKED, ( Another thing you should bring with you) So don’t be like me and bring an umbrella and a raincoat your hours of hard work on your hair and makeup will thank you later.

3. Blotting sheets- Going back to how dang hot it is outside, my makeup made my face look super oily from the heat and it just kept getting worse as the day progressed on. Keep some blotting sheets in your purse or with your gamma chi, you’ll be happy you did!

4. Bandaids- If you’re anything like me or the average girl, you like to choose your outfit over being practical, those cute wedges look super cute with your outfit until you reach house 4 and your entire back heel is covered in blisters. I get it, you want to look your best and no one is telling you, that you can’t but bring some band-aids to help you out along the way.

5. Gum- If I had to pick one thing to bring from this entire list it would be gum, ladies we want to talk to you and get to know you but keep in mind we are also talking to about 50 other girls at the same time we are talking to you so we are super close to each other for most of our conversation.  Bring some gum as a courtesy to the girls you are going to be talking too, no one wants to be remembered as the girl who had bad breath.

6. A small bag- I mentioned this earlier, it’s not necessarily something you HAVE to have during recruitment but it’s nice to have something to carry your phone or lipstick in or the things I mentioned above. Even a clutch or a shoulder bag will do the trick!

Lastly, remember to come in with an open mind, coming into recruitment I already knew a lot of different girls from different sororities because I had grown up in the area so I had a pretty good idea of where I wanted to go. Turns out what I thought I wanted really wasn’t meant for me all along but that was okay because I’m super happy and proud to be apart of my sorority today. You will hear this phrase so many times during recruitment but “trust the process” you may think it’s dumb or not true but it’s there for a reason and it really does work, you will find the chapter that you’re meant to be in and you’ll eventually call it home.

Every chapter is different from the other but we all have one thing in common which is the love we have for our sisters and the love we have for being a part of something bigger than our own selves. Every sorority serves a different purpose to a different organization but at the end of the day we love being a part of Greek life and that’s what unites us. You will find your lifelong best friends and you’ll meet other girls who aren’t in your sorority too, you are going to do great and we can’t wait to meet you and welcome you home!

A List of Thank You’s To the People Who Helped Shape Me Into The Person I Am Today.

Tomorrow is the day, I pack up the life I know now and begin a new journey in the next chapter of my life called college. I have so many emotions going through my body currently and I couldn’t describe just one I’m feeling right now. But I do know that I am very thankful for every lesson, laugh, and hardship that brought me here to this very moment.

As excited as I am to move into my new dorm and meet my new roomie (hi Kylie!) I can’t help but be saddened a little by the fact that this is the last day I will be a “kid”.  All the memories that fill my house now will soon be replaced by new ones, in a new room, in a new place and although I will always have those memories it just won’t quite be the same feeling as it is now.  So… Continue reading “A List of Thank You’s To the People Who Helped Shape Me Into The Person I Am Today.”
