Friday Inspiration: Gratitude

If you don't appreciate what you have now, how will more help?

This, at first glance, can seem like fortune cookie wisdom. It's obvious that more love, money, or something else would help. Right?

Cowspiracy Screening

Hello everyone!

Tonight, I'm super excited to be heading out to Molloy College's Cowspiracy screening. If you are vegan or vegan-curious, this looks to be a great documentary made by the director of The Cove.
As someone interested in sustainability, this will definitely be interesting! I hope you can check the film out when it's in your neck of the woods!

Links I Love

  • This remix of Beggin for Thread by Gryffin & Hotel Garuda is on repeat.
  • I really want to see Charleston after checking out Stripes and Sequin's Charleston recap!
  • I just entered to win Ace & Ivy's monogram weekender giveaway!
  • This article on millenials is extremely depressing, but important. Do you think this generation is screwed?
  • On a more positive note, I love this quote from Wilfred Peterson: "Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground."
  • I will be posting new reviews of independent sellers this week! Get excited!

3 Tips for Long Test Days

It's the night before the test. You've done everything you can do in preparation, but you can still improve your score with these three tips! Beat that long test day!

1. Read something challenging before the test. I know it may be tempting to save all your brain power for the test, but your brain needs a wakeup call! Try a medium-difficulty problem or passage as you get ready in the morning. Even if the test is at 7 am, I make sure to practice a bit beforehand!

Etsy Review: Hurrband

A bit ago, I was lucky enough to receive a HurrBand! Based in Lousiana, this Etsy business sells really cute patterned headbands. The owner is enrolled in school now, but will be coming back December 17! Take a look below and their Instagram to get your order ready!

I think the HurrBand could be great for group events like a sorority volunteer day-it's an easy and cute way to get everyone to match.

They're Going to Get Old & Gray

How has your week been? Let me know and I will you how mine went...

Yesterday, I tried this recipe for stuffing egg cups. I love stuffing at Thanksgiving, so I was all over trying this. Basically, you mix together 6 eggs, 2 tablespoons cheese (I used Trader Joe's fake moz because I'm allergic), little bit of pepper, and a box of stuffing. Put in muffin tin for 40 minutes at 325. I love all breakfast foods, but this is amazing!

I've been listening non-stop to Hoodie Allen's single, "Act My Age" from his new album "People Keep Talking". I went to the same school as Hoodie, and I saw him perform at my school my sophomore year. It's crazy to see how he went from being "the guy who raps in the background at frat parties" to Number 2 on Itunes in only 4 years. Honestly, I prefer his old stuff (No Sleep in Brooklyn and You Are Not a Robot) but this song is pretty good. 

In case you missed my post, I just finished #Girlboss, and loved it!
