The Stages of Post-Grad Life

Graduating college is an exciting time, but like any transition period, it can bring a whirlwind of emotions and changes that you may not be properly prepared for. Call me the cliche, “emotional train wreck,” but I have gone through as many emotions enough to qualify me for the leading role in a  Lifetime network film. Although…

Why Coloring is the New Therapy

Remember when we were little kids and wanted to spend our days doing nothing, but color? We would have our buckets of crayons and colored pencils besides us 24/7. We would think every picture we colored was a straight-masterpiece, yet looking at it now, you see that you had a strange eye for color coordination. Well, as…

Why I won’t buy books on Amazon

Call me old-fashioned, but I actually like going to a bookstore. In today’s society, the online world is dominating physical businesses. Online print is being favored over newspapers. Online shopping is preferred than going to a mall. Amazon has become the new go-to bookstore, rather than Barnes and Noble. While anything online can be more…

Food For Thought: Oatmeal Obsessed

It seems as if I eat oatmeal at least once everyday. When I’m not eating, I’m browsing food recipes from Pinterest or drooling over Instagram posts from food bloggers I follow. Now in every picture I always see Vigilant Eats oatmeal packs and figured I could try it to find out what the hype was…

Spring Break: Expectations vs. Reality

There’s a common stereotypes that college students “Party it Up” during their Spring Breaks. While the idea is nice, not all of us are lounging on a beach, living our own “Project X” party dreams. No really… While we all envision what our perfect Spring Breaks would be, we all aren’t able to live an…

Questions You Shouldn’t Ask a Twenty-Something

Being in your twenties is a confusing and EXHAUSTING time period. You have to figure out who you are, plan your future, pass college, work to earn some cash, have a fitness regimen, stay healthy, make time for friends and family and find some time to have “Me Time.” Can you say Millennial. Freakin.’ Overload?…

Benefits of being Single

As much as being in a relationship can be wonderful, being single can be just as great (no, really). Now when Valentines Day comes around, it really is up to you to decide just how you interpret the one day in the year where people have more mixed emotions about these 24 hours than what toppings…

Food for Thought: Post-Workout Greens

Usually after working out, I always find myself thinking two things: Why do I have to be so hungry? WTF do I eat without eating my workout away? Normally my go-to is always something having to do with fruit. Whether it’s a smoothie, peanut butter and banana, fruit with yogurt, etc. Lately, I’ve surprised myself…

All the Reasons Why Your 20s are One Big Paradox

If I have learned anything about being in your twenties, it’s that it’s a time period full of contradictions. It’s supposed to be some of the best years of your life, when your identity forms solidly into the person you have always meant to become and your overall mindset is clearer than ever. I’m not sure…

We all have scrolled through our social media feeds and have seem the overwhelming amount of #relationshipgoals pictures. In fact, we even have our fave celeb couples who we call our #relationshipgoals (Chrissy Tiegen and John Legend, ya’ll are adorable).

A Trip to the Farmer’s Market

I don’t know about you,  but I find trips to the local Farmer’s Market as exciting as  going to Disneyland. While I browse through the yummy treats they have to offer, I can’t help but go with a game plan of recipes I would like to attempt to create. Now I have this special recipe…
