How to Plan the Best Girls Trip Ever + Adirondack Dude Ranch Recap

Hi all.

So I’m back from my three-day girls trip to the Adirondacks, and let me tell you…it was so needed. First of all, we had an entire free week to burn before graduation. In other words, why the hell not shack up at a dude ranch in the mountains for a few days? 

Secondly though, I think all lady gangs should do this kind of a thang more often. Getting away from the hustle & bustle for a few days was honestly priceless. We particularly loved the place that we stayed, because it was all-inclusive. Therefore, all of our meals and activities were included with our lodging. We had ZERO things to worry/stress/overthink/plan about. 

The Ultimate Casual Cool Look

With the athleisure trend in full swing, I’m really vibing on casual pieces lately. I finally invested in a pair of Adidas sneakers a few months ago, which have really stepped up my game. And I don’t even care that everybody and their mother has a pair at this point, because they’re SO. DAMN. COMFORTABLE. 

Seriously, just try ’em on. This pair is loaded with memory foam, so it’s legit like you’re walking on a cloud. I straight wear them at least a few days per week, simply because they’re so comfy and go with pretty much anything. 

Weekend Bites: My Favorite Hydrating “Piña Colada” Smoothie

I won’t lie, I’ve been on a bit of a sugary/greasy food bender for the past few (!) weeks.

[Hence why I told ya’ll about my plans to join a gym stat, here.]

Since finals week, my girlfriends and I have been livin’ it up on Wendy’s frostys & fries, cheese balls, coconut cake, + basically any other nasty-ass food you can think of. 

It’s gross. I KNOW. 

I never put on the freshman fifteen, so maybe it’ll just be the senior 15 instead, all compounded in the two weeks prior to graduation, haha! #cantescapeit

How to Spring Clean Your Closet (+ Your Life)

Earlier this week, I shared with ya’ll some of my thoughts on graduating. It’s honestly a bit of a weird time, and overall it’s bittersweet. But want to know what I absolutely, hands down HATE? 

Having to move my entire life out of my apartment and back home.

This is coming from someone who hauled a literal trailer to campus with all of her stuff in it at the beginning of last year. There was that much.

So yeah. Moving out is a sick freaking joke at this point. 

Thoughts on Graduating + a lacey look under $10

Our last day of classes was Friday, and I’m officially done with exams this Wednesday. 

How in the world am I graduating in less than two weeks?!

It sounds so cliche, but it really does feel like it was just yesterday that I was packing for orientation, stressing about finding a roommate, gagging over the nasty dining hall meals, etc. It’s amazing how time seems to move so slowly day by day, until all of the sudden everything seems like a complete whirlwind and it’s all moving too fast! It’s honestly hard to fully enjoy these last few weeks at school just knowing that it’s almost over in the back of my mind.

Summer Essentials!! Everything You Need in a Nutshell…

So, perhaps you’ve read this post, where I told ya’ll about the little hurricane warning we had in NY last week…

Sounds like fun, huh? 

We’re obviously *quite* ready for summer over here in the East Coast, so I just couldn’t resist putting together a little warm weather roundup to get in the spirit. I’m loving all the pom poms and tropical prints this season, despite the fact that I’m trying to keep away from such bright pieces (I wear ’em once and get bored). I can’t wait to just lay out in the sun all weekend though — with SPF like 1 million on of course, b/c I’m a psycho bitch about preventing wrinkles.

Unfortunately, it’s still sweater weather here in NY.

In fact, we had a literal tornado warning on Monday night.

WTF East Coast.

WTF.

Can you see I’m a bity salty about this ‘lil predicament here? I’m a person whose mood is definitely affected by the weather, so the constant grayness outside is quite underhwelming. How’s a girl supposed to stay creative (which is essentially us bloggers’ bread & butter) when it’s downright gloomy out?
