Top 5 Winter Must Haves

Hi y'all,
It's that time of the year! It's time for the holidays, which also means the start of cold weather here in Virginia. Now, I realize Virginia winter can be pretty mild compared to what the northeast sees, but far worse than what the more southern states see.

In order to survive, I have my 5 must have products.

1. Senegence LipSense LipBalm. I LOVE this stuff! Send me a message if you want some! This stuff is seriously incredible. I used to use chapstick all the time. Believe me when I say that this is way better. I use it maybe 3 times a day max, and my lips do not crack anymore. The one "downside" is that when you first apply it, your lips tend to peel. It does not last long and it's the LipSense makeup that is creating the silky smooth lips that you're looking for. Your lips would peel no matter what product you're using, I just notice it more with LipBalm (I think it's how fast it happens, which means your getting what you want faster!)
I can also get you any of the other Senegence products that you love, or just want to try! Plus, mention this post and get 10% off your total order and FREE shipping.

2. Tula Purifying Face Wash. Again, a holy grail product that I love. It will last you over a month and your skill will feel amazing. You also get a discount if you have it on auto-delivery.

3. A pom-pom hat. Mine is from Vineyard Vines from last year's winter collection. However, I was browsing the Mark and Graham website and found this adorable monogramable one!

4. Yeti or S'well bottle. Y'all, you need just as much water in the winter as you do in the summer. Sometimes even more because the air isn't as humid. Plus, you can't pass up Lilly Pulitzer x S'wells new addition. Please keep in mind that if you see a different color online somewhere and it's not on the Yeti website, that means someone is powder dipping it and isn't an official Yeti product-which also means Yeti doesn't have to stand behind it.

5. Fisherman's Sweater. I adore these. I buy a new one every year because they're cute, warm, and you can wear them in so many different combos. Wear it with a sweater, jeans, cords, as a second layer: the possibilities are endless!

What are your top 5 winter must haves?

Nine Potential New Member Sorority Recruitment Tips

Hi y'all!

August is quickly approaching, which for many means its back to school time. For college students elsewhere, it also means recruitment season is here!

My school did a spring recruitment (aka January); however, many schools, especially in the south, do recruitment in August and September.

If you're going through recruitment, congratulations!

I went through recruitment in two different ways (both formal and the colonization process) and then on the sister side! I went through part of recruitment my freshman year spring, got sick and couldn't finish. However, it worked out for the best because I got to join Alpha Delta Pi through the colonization process in September of my sophomore year.

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Each house is different at every school. Did you hear about sorority XYZ at ABC University? Get that stereotype right out of your head. Every single house is different because different girls make up the chapter. I have friends that would t…

Well, I'm finally doing it: committing to blogging. Again. I'm super excited to be jumping back into the blogging world after a hiatus. I attempted to blog under some other names, but nothing felt right. So, I figured my own name would be the best way to keep a blog that I loved. 

I'm Lindsey. I'm a 20-something elementary school teacher with a passion for sharing things about life. I originally started blogging back at the end of my senior year of high school, and continued through college. Post grad life made it hard to balance everything (mainly because I was working full time and going to school again). However, I know that I'm going to need this blog.
As of right now, I have accepted my first full time "big girl job" in the field I'm passionate about. I'm teaching 5th grade this year, and I'm so excited! Along with my first teaching job, I'm also going to be working in retail part time and I'm taking one grad class. 

I'm stil…
