Favorite YouTube Music Channels

Hi friends!

If I haven't said it already, I really love listening to music.  Like a lot.  I think I use YouTube more than anything to find really cool songs.  Don't get me wrong, I have a special place in my heart for generic radio pop songs, but I think I prefer a more eclectic selection of…

Good Eats || Uncle Loui's Cafe

Hi friends!

I am a sucker for good food.  But who isn't to be honest!  My mom and dad came up to Duluth for the day and we decided we wanted some good, and I mean goooood, breakfast food.  I asked around and heard about Uncle Loui's Cafe in Downtown Duluth.

It is a small mom-and-pop cafe whi…

A New Hobby??


So I was cleaning my room the other day, and I found a watercolor palette (like one of those ones that are on your first grade school supplies list, so not too fancy haha).  So exciting!!  I immediately had to make something.  To be honest, I probably spent way too much time making this, but …

A Day at Canal Park

What's in my backpack | 2015

Girls Day

After a long week of classes, my friend, Kassidy, and I decided that we should do something fun to celebrate making it through another week.  Since Kassidy has an interview next week (*crosses fingers*), she really wanted to get her nails done.  Looking at the state of my fingernails *yikes*, I agr…

Yesterday, I spent a good portion of my day baking some cupcakes because...well do I need to reason to make cupcakes?!  Anyways, as I don't have very many baking supplies to make homemade goods, I decided that a store bought box-mix and frosting would suffice, and …

College Homecoming

Hello my lovely internet friends!
How are you today? You doing well?!  I certainly hope so.
What about me? Well thanks for asking!!  This past weekend was my college's homecoming.  Which is even more crazy because it's my LAST homecoming as a student.  INSANE. Where did the time go?!  My pare…


It was a very gloomy day outside today, with lots of fog.  I woke up and made some coffee.  We have a Keurig machine that is amazing for making single serve cups of coffee.  I, of course, added my mocha creamer to it.  LOVE IT.  I also decided to make myself a breakfast wrap which included: eggs, o…

RIP Linkey :(

This was always my favorite picture of Linkey.
It is with great sadness that I am writing this today.  I got a text from my Mom this morning that said that my beloved cat Linkey passed away last night.  We got him when he was an adult cat so we are not exactly sure how old he was, but we guessed he …


Well....the time has finally come:  I am going to be a senior...IN COLLEGE.  WOW.
I honestly never imagined this day coming because I always told myself that I had a lot of time to figure out what I wanted to do after I graduate, and now that I start school on Tuesday, I have quite  bit of pressure …

Minnesota State Fair 2015

A Morning of Thoughts

I had an idea to write down all my thoughts that I had in the morning and go back and see how much of a terrible morning person I am.  WHAT A FUN IDEA!!!!!1!!  It went something like this....

OH NO.  I hope I'm not late!!!
*Checks phone and sees it's o…

The Unnecessary Haul

Here are some things that I bought with my online shopping addiction.  All things were unnecessary but totally worth it (at least that's what I keep telling myself)

Until next time!

Five things I am trying very hard to accept

1. Your skin and body may never be perfect, and that's okay.  As long as you're happy.

2.  Life is too short to not buy that cute dress that makes you feel fabulous, that delicious cake, and the haircut that you have always wanted to try.  Maybe even try a new color! As long as you're ha…


This is important.

Daily reminder to make sure that you drink enough water.  Water is so so so important and you body needs it to function properly.  Not to mention, it helps keep your skin clear, your eyes moist, and your heart beating.

When my grandma was alive, towards the end she developed se…

Learning vs. Education

This is something that I have wanted to talk about for a very long time.

Get ready for some OPINIONS!!

As a college student, I just wanted to say how lucky I am to be able to go to a good college and just LEARN.  It is a privilege that I do not take lightly.  I realize that a lot of people don't…

REVIEW | Avengers: Age of Ultron

Yes.  I'm probably the last person to see this (college is my excuse), but I finally went to see this movie this past week.  As a big lover of everything Marvel, I had very high expectations for this sequel to the Avengers.  First of all, I do have to say that it was enjoyable.  There were lots…

Coming to a close

Heya everyone!  So it is finally May, which means spring time (almost summer), and more importantly NO SCHOOL!   It is crazy to think that my Junior year of college has almost come to a close.  When I think about it, this year went by so quickly, like literally where has the time gone.  I have no …
