I love airports. But I also hate them. We have a love/hate relationship, really. Today, I’m pretty much indifferent. The only thing I’m mad about right now is Starbucks being out of mango flavor for my tea. Whateves. Peach will do. Continue reading “11 Thoughts I Have While Sitting in an Airport”
Ya’ll. I have a Keurig in my room from where I moved out of the dorm and let me tell you… it’s bad. It’s bad in the best way possible. I’m literally steps away from a caffeine boost in the mornings. I don’t even have to put on pants for this. Continue reading “Newest collection: coffee mugs”
You all know my love affair with Grey’s Anatomy. I mean, I literally have an entire section of this blog dedicated to episode reviews (which will pick up this weekend for season 14!).

Today is all about planning the perfect beach trip when you’re on a tight budget, especially my fellow college students who can sometimes barely afford dinner. I’ve been there. I feel you. I posted about this yesterday on my Instagram story and some of you sent in some questions and I will answer anything that the post doesn’t cover at the end!
It’s that time of year again!
