    5 Easy Ways to Make your Room Feel Cozier.

    Hellooo Fall! As cooler weather comes to the front, we start to prepare ourselves for fall and the future tundra that is the Midwest and Northeast. We get ready for the cold, by drinking plenty of pumpkin spice lattes and taking out that stack of sweaters from the closet. However, besides the cold factor, Fall is one of the greatest and most beautiful seasons. What makes it even sweeter than the candy on Halloween, is the decorations and the preparation of a cozy retreat from the cold and wind.  Here is what I do to change up my room/ dorm room to make it cozier for the fall weather: 1.…

    Not Your Average Love Letters. Letter 1: Never Get Burned By the Same Flame?

    I decided to start the series “Not Your Average Love Letters” because I feel like Love is such a hard and confusing emotion, but it can also be the most amazing. People think it’s supposed to be this perfect, easy feeling to navigate. I’m here to tell you that it’s not. You will fight, get confused, you will get hurt feelings sometimes, but that only makes up about 10% of the relationship. Honestly, my boyfriend is my best friend, we tell each other everything, and we get into arguments. However, we always make up, because we love each other. You each need to give 100:100 of each other because you…

    Why I love the Summer Sun.

    Do you daydream about drinking mango and strawberry smoothies on the beach, while the sun is out and it is above 80 degrees ( my perfect weather basically being anything above 75-90 degrees 🙂 ). I know I do! While growing up in this frozen tundra, or more commonly known as the Midwest, I have gotten to to appreciate the 5 months (if we are lucky) of nice weather (AKA above 75!)  🙂 When I think of summer I think of: Long drives with the music loud and all the windows open The sun shining on all the treetops Setting up a hammock and taking a nap or reading a…

    Oh How I Miss You . . .

    I remember being young and the ground under my feet seeming to vanish. Running down hills and jumping over fallen trees, my legs feeling as if they weren’t attached to my body. My blonde hair would mold with the sunshine streaming through the trees that protected me from reality.

    Magic Captured in Tiny Little Bottles

    Welcome back! Today we are talking about health. More Specifically Essential oils. I don’t know about you, but I get headaches pretty often, I don’t know why, but I also have a chiropractor basically on speed dial. . . I am only 19… ya I know crazy.

I got them last year, and I don’t know what I would do without them. The starter kit I have, which includes: Lavender,…
