As the Christmas season kicks into high gear, I can’t help but want to share some of the best gifts you could possibly get for the college students in your life. These items are perfect for the male or female student, and I’m sure they’d put a huge smile on their face. If you know someone who is passionate about school and getting good grades, this is the gift guide for them! Wacom Bamboo Folio Most college students are either a laptop person or pen and paper person. The Wacom Bamboo Folio is a perfect compromise. You can leave your laptop at home while you recharge and take notes by hand. My Bamboo Folio allows me to be completely present in the classroom. When I took my laptop to class I almost always got distracted and was unable to focus. But if I bring my Bamboo Folio I know I can unplug for class and get those notes right onto my laptop once i get home! I can transfer my handwritten notes to PDF form… View Post

‘Tis the season for vlogmas! If you didn’t know already, vlogmas occurs from December 1st to December 25th and basically the only rule is to vlog each day. Aaaand guess who will be participating? This girl. There’s a lot of creative freedom that comes with vlogmas which is what makes it so great, but sometimes that can also be a reason for people not to participate. So I decided to come up with some fun video ideas you can use during vlogmas! I’ll probably be using them too, although probably not in this order. I started making YouTube videos over the summer because I wanted a new way to connect with my readers (that’s you). They’re a lot of fun and a lot different than blogging but in a good way. If you’re a blogger thinking about venturing into the YouTube world, vlogmas is a fun reason to start. All you really need is your phone and a YouTube channel although a video editing program helps a lot as well (I just use iMovie that came on my Macbook). Here are a few ideas to get you into the vlogmas spirit! Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you don’t… View Post

It’s no secret that fall is my favorite season and I’m so sad it’s almost over! The crisp fall air, the blanket scarves, changing leaves, and hayrides are among my favorite parts. There are so many fall trends that I’m obsessing over, I feel like each year I’m buying tons of new fall clothes just because I love the colors so much (whoops). There’s just something about the changing leaves and feeling like you can just start fresh that I absolutely love.
