  • Wintersong by S . Jae-Jones

  • College Nighttime Routine

    Think midterms are the enemy? Think again, its acne.  College breakouts are no joke, and with your new busy schedule, it seems like you never have a moment to go through a nightly facial routine. I found that by sticking to the essentials, you can create a nightly face routine that will keep that stress-induced breakout under the skin.  Daily 1. Cleanser:  Why it’s essential: By using a cleanser every night, you are getting rid of all the dirt and oil that has built up on your face throughout the day.  What I like to use: Clean & Clear® Night Relaxing Oil-Free Deep Cleaning Face Wash. Personally, my skin is both dry and oily (depending…

  • The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

    Hello fellow bibliophiles! This week I am reviewing The Cruel Prince by Holly Black! The first time I read a Holly Black book was way back in 3rd grade when I began the Spiderwick Chronicles.

  • My Dormifam Experience

    Hey everyone! Today I want to talk to you about a fantastic program that I take part in called Dormifam. Before I even got into college, I was planning my freshman dorm. I had a Pinterest page filled with hundreds of images designing my idealistic living space. I was constantly searching on Amazon and Target for cute decor. In March of 2018, after I had been accepted and enrolled into my dream school, I got an email from Dormify.com. I already loved their site and their products so I was excited when they asked if I would join a new program they were starting called Dormifam. I immediately accepted, joined…

  • Bullet Journaling in College

    Bullet Journaling is a tool to keep track and organize your life. It requires you actually to sit down and think through your life and record it. While it is a tool for productivity, it can also be used to create mindfulness in a hectic and anxiety filled life. I began Bullet Journaling in February of 2018. Since I had just graduated High School, I had a lot of time to journal. I had seen beautiful Bullet Journals on Pinterest and Instagram and wanted to create an aesthetically pleasing journal. After purchasing my first Bullet Journal from www.BulletJournal.com I quickly learned that this seemingly effortless artform was going to be much harder…
