Confidence

Leave a comment


So the last few months have been pivotal for the changes I had planned on making in my life. I’m proud to say I have made a lot of key changes that have had extremely good results. The main issue that I’ve been dealing with is being resilient in the face of negative influences. I think the main thing I’ve learned is that if someone is always being negative and talking about what they hate about themselves/the world around them, that people are going to start believing them. If you hate yourself, everyone else is going to eventually as well. I know it’s not easy for some people to be confident, but I truly believe it’s the sole factor that will motivate you to do what you need/want to do.

If there’s anything I’ve learned in college / living in a house with 30+ girls, it’s that everyone is fuckin weird. And it’s so annoying that people get all hung up on their weirdness. Once you embrace how weird / embarrassing everything you do is, you’ll realize just how weird the world is, and it’s liberating as hell.

I truly feel that one you realize how awesome you are, other people will see it. That leads to strong friendships, good romantic relationships, lasting business connections, and overall you’ll get respect from anyone you meet.
Basically just decide what you want to be and do, and then rock it.

You’re Da Bomb Favors

Leave a comment


So I’m a dumbass and forgot to take a picture of my final product but this is what inspired me to make my You’re Da Bomb favors for all of our new pledges for Initiation.

We have this tradition where we set out little goodie bags and throughout our I-Week, the older members put all sorts of cute little goodies in there for all of the girls. It ranges from candy to notes to mixed-tape style cd’s, you name it. Here’s what I did:

I guess I’m not the only dumbass because I just noticed that the ones I was inspired by isn’t even grammatically correct. (Your the bomb) haha.

My Blog Is A Success!

Oh Joy!

So when I got 160 views in 2 hours, I started wondering what the average views per day are for new bloggers and I found in most forums that a lot of people get around 10-50 per day. That made me feel awwweessommmee, people! I’m so glad everyone likes it so far 🙂 Keep checking back, there’s even more to come!

Lmao. Have a good day.

Life Lessons from Bro Tips

Leave a comment


To be fair to all of the bro’s out there, almost every guy I hang with it in a fraternity. That being said, there is a difference between a fratty bro, and a BRAH. Normally I’d say something entitled “bro tips” would have to be considered part of the lame bro category that TFM would make fun of, but some of them were actually inspirational. In my defense I found these on pinterest.

In case you are unaware of what “that guy” is, read this. Caution: if you are unaware then you are “that guy”. (Can be referring to a female). If not, read the article anyway, it’s hilarious! Via Thought Catalog. (Which I follow on Twitter and is increasingly becoming my favorite thing to read online).

Hahaha. I realize I’m burning myself with this one.

And finally,

🙂 Goodnight world.

Giftspiration – Love Pocket

Leave a comment


I’m all about doing random sweet little things for people lately. I just feel like it’s really important to slow down and be mindful of your relationships. Life is seriously way too quick to get caught up in dumb drama. Plus, everyone feels good when you do little nice things for them here and there.

These love pockets are super simple and cheap to make. You could fill them with anything you want, but I like the idea of candy, it gives it a little pop of color. Just take a doily or even paper that you cut into your own design and sew two of them together with the surprise inside. Don’t know where I got this picture from but it’s an adorable idea!

Blondes Have More Fun!

Leave a comment


I don’t know who came up with the phrase “blondes have more fun”, but we for sure do! I’m blonde! I used to dye my hair all the time in middle school and the beginning of high school. I’ve seriously tried every color. Then I went back to my natural dark brown (well, I should say black) for yeeaarrrs. I really liked the long, dark, Kardashian look. At the same time, my ex boyfriend said he hated blondes. Not going to lie it felt a little liberating 🙂

Speaking of changes, my sister Chrissy and I just got a free week at Bally’s. I’m so motivated, especially considering all of the weddings I need to look good for.

(Love her makeup.) I’ve never had a problem with sweets. It’s salt and carbs that get to me. I usually eat pretty balanced meals, that is if someone is cooking for me. Up at school I struggle a lot to find things that are easy, cheap, good, and are made in small portions so I don’t have to eat leftovers all week. So I began to mindlessly snack a lot. And let me tell you it’s a hard habit to break. Not to mention being in a sorority has landed me a lot of friends in fraternities, and that obviously comes with drinking large quantities of beer.

I recently downloaded the “My Fitness Pal” app on my iPhone, and it’s awesomeee! I love how easy it is to track what I eat and what exercise I do. I had no idea how much I really ate.

I’ve never had a problem sticking to a plan, it’s getting started I suck at. So hopefully now that I’ve began I will feel healthier and happier. I’m seriously such a strong believer in a holistic approach to health.

I guess the only issue I ever do have with working out is that I expect results that just aren’t attainable for my body type. I have big hair, big hips, and a big butt. I’m of Italian blood and I’ll never be tall and skinny. And although the high school version of me would never be able to say this, I’m gradually becoming okay with this fact.

It takes a lottttt of maturity and patience to be able to be okay with your limitations. Especially if you are like me and are always trying to better yourself in order to be the best.

Amen.
