1. Glossier Boy Brow Gel

I just got this for Christmas….and it is life changing. I have super weird eyebrows, and to be completely honest with you, I’ve never cared for them. Ever. However, there is so much hype around them nowadays that I feel like everyone is staring at my overgrown ones. I tried some other cheap brow gels and thought  they did the trick for a while, but then I

glossier-boy-brow-3-brow-products-for-blondesthought, “Hey, why not?” and asked Tanner to get me this for Christmas. I feel like every magazine has written some article or post on Glossier, and rightfully so. I instantly noticed how much better my eyebrows looked, and most importantly, this created more natural eyebrows for me.


2. Fit Me Maybelline Powder16866748

I love this powder. I usually never stray away from Neutrogena, but I kept reading great reviews on this, the price was phenomenal, and I know some other girls in my sorority who use this religiously. I had to try it, and I was not disappointed. It gives amazing coverage, and totally doesn’t make you look cakey.


3. BareMinerals Bareskin Foundation

I absolutely LOVE this foundation. I tried it out in 2016 when one of my best friends, Mia, did my makeup with it one night, and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to any regular foundation after this one. It doesn’t break me out, and it’s the perfect coverage for the way my skin is nowadays.

4. Mario Badescu Rose Water_13258981.jpg

I love, love, love this product. It is so refreshing and hydrating. I get so tired and groggy during school, and especially during exam periods, and I love spritzing some of this on my face to wake me up and help my face feel better and less uncomfortable. I also use it as a make-up setting spray. Beauty Products (1)

1.Food…Specifically Acai Bowls from Jamba Juice.




These have seriously been my obsession lately. I get dining dollars with my Resident Assistant job, and I swear the main thing I used them for this semester are these delicious bowls of magic and antioxidants.

I really wanted one of these for quite some time…so when I found a great deal on Amazon, I instantly wanted to buy it. So far, it’s been magical and helping with my school stress quite well.

3. Lightroom


I’ve been really hesitant to purchase this photo editing software, considering I’m a fairly poor college student and this is an expensive program, but I sure am glad that I made the investment. I really enjoy photography, and I’ve been able to take it to even better levels with Lightroom.

4. Skydiving Tickets

Nothing has made me feel more exhilarated than when I jumped out of a plane. 10/10. Highly recommend…and yes…obviously try purchasing the video and photo package. You won’t regret it.


5. My Padfolio


I cannot explain how useful this has been to me this year. I’ve taken it to every important meeting, Career Fair/ Expo, and conference. Not only is it super useful, but it’s also cute and available at Target for a reasonable price.

6. My First Pumpkin

I bought my first pumpkin in 2017 alongside Bri and Catherine, my big and my little in Chi O. It was a very memorable experience.

7. Henri the Car

Henri was the very first car I purchased, and it will forever be my baby.
