Recipe to Remember
One food I always love is homemade jam. My family is really big on making jam from scratch, and this Mexican Vanilla Peach Jam is definitely going to be a project for me in the near future. Yumm.

Recipe to Remember
Last summer I made this Strawberry Shortcake from scratch. It was heavenly, and although the recipe did take some time, the results were well worth the effort. Yummm.
This summer, I have rediscovered my passion for reading. During the school year I often find myself feeling so bogged down with schoolwork, sorority events, and work tasks, that I rarely have time to read what I would like to. In rediscovering this passion, and finding myself spending hours upon hours reading in the sun, I love the idea of creating a space to be surrounded by stories, and...
Get a facial at least twice a year. Okay so yeah, you might be thinking that it’s too prissy, and high-maintenance, but trust that if you are only going twice a year, you can call yourself anything but high-maintenance. The reason I say this is because at the start of the summer, I used a gift card I got from my sister for Christmas to get a facial. Yeah the facial was relaxing and all...
Funny Shizz of the Day
So I know that waking up before 7am doesn’t sound appealing to most, but for me it hasn’t been as dreadful as I thought it might be.

If you’re like me, and you find yourself loathing the length of your hair (it’s not yet long enough), and you adore soft curls, I have a tip for you! Curl only the midsection of your hair! Let me explain: 1. Divide your hair into sections (I like to start from the bottom-up, and pin the rest of your hair on top of your head) 2. In each layer, take sections of your blow-dried hair...

When telling people that we close at 9:30am, and giving them warnings to print out their documents, be sure to say it meanly. Otherwise, they will stay until 9:40am, and be snotty about needing to print something for a class.
Sometimes I find myself wondering if all of the hard work is worth it. If all of the effort and the amount of heart and soul I pour into things that matter to me will all be worth it in the end. Today, I got a glimpse of just how much hard work can pay off. A strong work ethic is something that I value greatly in myself, and in other people. I believe that little will come for someone who is...
