I am definitely one of those people that just loves pretty things. I discovered the world of “tech wallpapers” the other week and have been changing my laptop and iPhone backgrounds incessantly ever since! I was shocked at how many there were, from beautiful photographs, to funny designs, to beautiful quotes. One quick way to find them is on Pinterest, which then links you to the sites of the artists and graphic designers that create them.
I think Forever 21 gets a bad rap. Yes, its cheap, and yes, you have to dig, but there are truly some hidden gems. I always go to Forever 21 when I feel like I have nothing to wear, or when I am excited about the beginning of a new season (hello, summer!) and want to buy an entire new wardrobe. It is also great for buying guilt-free trendy items you know you won’t want in the long run.
For the final leg of our four-country European meet-up series, Em hopped down to Madrid for the weekend to soak up some Spanish sun. We hiked all around the city and even snapped a few photos, all in the hopes of providing you, our lovely readers, with a satisfying weekend guide to my favorite city. Buen finde, guapas!
A few weeks ago, I read an article about the benefit of establishing a successful morning routine. As a morning person, I love waking up early and getting my day started on the right foot. I started asking around about other peoples’ mornings and I found many SMU students who are kicking a** have a set-in-stone morning ritual. Lucky for us, two of them have decided to share their wisdom!
As much as I want to stay in my PJ’s all day, I still like to get semi-dressed for the day. I used to get more put together for class in high school, a demise which began my senior year when I started boycotting makeup during the week. Since then, I’ve become an expert at feeling like I’m in my pajamas while also not wearing Lulus to class. I threw together some easy outfit formulas that will keep you looking semi-put together and fre$h while staying comfy. These are also great for travel days and running errands. One rule of thumb for me: keep one body part covered. Maybe I’m the only one who freezes to death in class, or even worse, in the grocery store **shivers** but this formula usually keeps me semi-warm inside and semi-cool outside.
