Hi friends! I want to start off this post by saying how freaking excited I am to share these products and small businesses with you. In brainstorming what I wanted to include in this gift guide and blog post, I wanted to create a gift guide that shared useful items that every girl actually needs and items that are also cute and would make them excited. This holiday season I have definitely felt more overwhelmed than usual by the materialistic and selfish behaviors that sometimes make an appearance. While I love giving people gifts, I am at a place in my life where I want to giving useful and/or meaningful gifts to my loved ones. Enter this post. I hope that you are enjoying your holiday shopping and enjoy this post!
For all of my fellow students out there: how ya holding up? Over here, I’m up to my eye brows in final projects, essays, exams and presentations – thankfully this is my second to last semester of ever having to do so. I figured it was about time I shared the study tips I actually use this time of year. In the past, I’ve shared other tips for kicking finals season in the behind. However, after my 18 years of schooling (yowza…) I have finally come to terms with the fact that I am a procrastinator. I am okay with that. If you notice the same thing about yourself, you’ll want to pay extra attention.
While we haven’t exactly seen our first snow flakes in Central Illinois, it sure does feel pretty icy out there. I’ve written posts on how to stay cool in the summer and how to take the edge off your minor burn, but I’ve never written about how to keep yourself from turning into an icicle once the temperatures get below freezing. Some of these suggestions you may have heard before and others may have you scratching your head – give ’em a shot and I’d love to hear your feedback! As promised via Twitter, at the end of today’s post I’m sharing some ultra exciting news with y’all.
