#YoungerTV

After a week of exams, writing lengthy final papers, and sleepless nights, a month-long break from college life is very much needed.  I can’t believe I’ve been home for a month. It has been nice catching up on sleep, hanging with the family, and spending more time on my blog.  However, my life at school is so different than life at home.  I find myself having more free time, and if you are a person like me who can’t sit still, I need to keep myself busy. Over my month-long break; I have kept myself busy by working part-time at… View Post

The Best And Worst Dressed At The Golden Globes 2016

Last year, my very first post on my blog was my round up of the best and worst dressed from the Golden Globes, so it is tradition to share my thoughts on this year’s fashion at the Golden Globes. My fashion senses were tingling on Sunday while watching the 73rd Golden Globes Award Show.  Next to Christmas, my favorite time of the year has to be award season.  Nothing beats watching the celebrities strut on the red carpet while wearing elaborate gowns. For the most part, every celebrity stunned in their designer dresses and set a high expectation for future… View Post

Goodbye 2015

Dear 2015, Thanks for an amazing year. A year filled with ups and downs. A year filled with successes and fails. A year filled with challenges. But most importantly a year filled with lessons. I am very hopeful for 2016, but before I enter into the new year, I want to reflect on 2015 and what I learned. 1. Be present I have always heard to live in the moment, to stop and look, and take time to reflect. However, it was not until this autumn, I knew the real meaning of those phrases. The long walks to class have… View Post

All Bundled Up

The title of this blog post is very misleading because I have been anything but bundled up the past few days.  The East Coast is experiencing the warmest December ever.  I’ve only worn my winter coat once, but like I said in my previous post, I am not complaining. I have no desire to see snow or bear the frigid temperatures of a normal northeast winter.  Although, it has been warmer than usual, it is still cold enough to wrap myself up in my favorite blanket scarf. The plaid blanket scarf trend has exploded this winter season.  Now everyone is… View Post

Holiday Party Survival Guide

The holiday season is in full swing. Christmas music is blasting wherever you go. Stores are packed with holiday shoppers. Homes are decorated with Christmas lights and grocery stores are sampling their favorite holiday treats. The holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be quite stressful. What to wear? What to give? What to serve? You’re not alone because all these questions run through my mind this time of year. Even though, I can’t go shopping with you personally, help you decorate, or help you entertain, I can provide a few tips for… View Post

Poncho Season

Hooray for the poncho trend, which comes in handy for those crisp, fall mornings when you just feel like showing up to class wrapped in a warm comfy blanket. A poncho is basically a warm piece of fabric that drapes across your body. It’s hard to find something more comfy, cozy, and stylish than a poncho. It’s so easy to style your poncho with jeans or leggings, a simple long-sleeve shirt, boots, and minimal jewelry. You’ll look like you’re walking down the runway, when in reality you did not want to leave your bed that morning. The poncho featured in… View Post

Before The Sun Sets

Daylight saving time has really hit me hard. And, in case you didn’t know it is “saving” not “savings.” It’s been a week and I still can’t get used to the time change. Walking back from class at five o’clock and it is pitch black outside really makes me long for spring. Plus, by like seven o’clock I am so ready for bed. I guess this only means one thing…the winter is coming! It was such a beautiful day so I could not let the day pass without going outside to take a few photos. Sadly, I had class until… View Post

On Repeat

Nothing is better than escaping college life by getting in the car, going off campus, and doing some shopping, even if it is by yourself. A few days ago I found out that retail therapy does exist. I was feeling a little down, and decided to pick myself up with something I love to do and that something is shopping. I was pretty bummed that nobody was around to go on a shopping trip with me, but what I found is that a little me time is just what I needed to overcome my blues. On another note, it has… View Post

Welcome to Townhouse 71

Block seven, house number one. This is where me and my three best friends will spend our junior year of college. These past few weeks have been filled with laughter, music blasting, some schoolwork being done, and of course decorating. Since this was my third year moving onto campus, I was more excited than nervous. Every year it becomes easier and easier and I owe it all to Bed Bath& Beyond. Thanks to Bed Bath & Beyond’s college checklist college shopping was stress free and more fun this year. The checklist had all the essentials from Twin XL sheets, stylish… View Post

I Love My Boyfriend (Jeans)

Who needs a boyfriend when you have a pair of fabulous jeans? Sadly, there’s no man in my life; however, I am in a committed relationship with my new boyfriend jeans from Madewell. It wasn’t until recently, I jumped on the boyfriend jeans bandwagon. It seems like the skinny jean trend has died out. Now all the buzz is about slouchy, shapeless jeans. Every time I try on a pair of boyfriend jeans, I feel stupid and out of place; however that changed when I took a risk and bought a pair of boyfriend jeans. It has taken some time… View Post

Back 2 School

Who knew that three words could cause so much anxiety…back to school. Although summer has not officially ended on the calendar, my summer ended when I walked into my first class. From elementary school to middle school to high school and now college, I always experience back to school jitters, especially the night before classes start. College is a different experience because I find you don’t need many school supplies. In elementary school you needed markers, crayons, glue sticks, and much more. In high school you needed a binder and notebook for every subject. Luckily, I only take five classes… View Post
