Slytherin Sass and Butterbeer- A Hogwarts Dream Come True.

hogwarts 2

This past weekend I took a much needed trip away from Flagstaff. The destination? Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Okay, so maybe not the real Hogwarts, but a girl can pretend, right?

Pumpkin Spice, Pumpkin Patches, and Everything In-Between.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

If you know me, then you should already know that I am a complete sucker for anything aesthetically pleasing, especially if it has to do with Fall. For as long as I can remember, Fall has been my favorite season. Everything old is essentially dying and starting to fall off of trees (and my worrisome mind) , and the leaves changing really signify new beginnings for me each year. Thus, to celebrate this new season in my life, I went to the prettiest pumpkin patch in Flagstaff, Viola’s, with some great company.

7 Ways to Deal with Your 8am in College

CAITLINBLAKE

I think there’s a general consensus with college students that 8am’s, pop quizzes, and boring lecturers are the worst things that can happen to us besides our massive debt amounts.

Skincare Products I’m Currently Loving| Acne-Prone Edition

Tasteful inspiration Blog- Acne Skincare

I have struggled with cystic acne from about the age of 11, which many people still can’t believe, and I’ve tried hundreds of dollars worth of products since that terrible stage of life hit me. You name it, I’ve tried it. I have been struggling less and less with acne as the years went on, so I thought it would be a good idea to show you all what I’ve been using  since I got some questions from friends (who have seen me at my worst stages) on how I got everything cleared up.

Seven Magic Mountains

Magic Mountains Giulia Paulet

I recently went on a very fun, adult-like trip to Las Vegas with my best friends, and we ended up stopping at the Seven Magic Mountains on the way back. I’ve had this place on my bucket list forever. I was so happy to go visit it, especially with some of the best gals I know.

I met Warren Buffett.

I met Warren Buffett.

This past month I had the opportunity, alongside 19 other students from the W.A. Franke College of Business, to go on the trip of a lifetime. After an intense interview process, with an upwards of 200 applications, we were the ones that were selected to go and essentially shadow Warren Buffett and his teams from Berkshire Hathaway organizations. We flew to Omaha, Nebraska, and I had the opportunity to not only visit with Mr. Warren himself ( please read further to hear the crazy story of how THAT happened lol), but also got to visit and tour Oriental Trading Company, Borsheims Fine Jewelry, and The Nebraska Furniture Mart. This was probably the most iconic experience of my whole business undergraduate degree. I think I’ve officially peaked.

My Favorite 2018 Trends: Trousers and Converse

 

january 2018 14

I don’t ever try new clothing trends… or at least I don’t ever try them while they’re fresh. I always feel compelled to buy the same clothes that I see on models or fashionable friends at school, because everyone seems to always be looking snazzy around me. I then naturally get inspired to also make the same fashion choices as them. However, at the end of the day, I don’t really like looking like everyone else around me. Although, something that I have seriously been eyeing lately is the trend involving converse and business pants, or trousers, as some may call them. I am absolutely in love with this trend. I believe that it’s been around for a while, especially in the 90s, but it’s just now starting to take over my university campus and my social media timelines. I’ve actually decided to break my trend rule in 2018 and stick to anything involving converse and cute trousers.

My Adventure at the AZ Hot Springs

hot springs 2016 2

One of the most amazing things I did in college so far was go to AZ Hot Springs with the Hiking Club and my best friends back in Spring 2017. This is obviously an overdue blog post, considering it happened back in 2017, but I still felt the need to talk about the AZ Hot Springs this year. If you ever visit AZ or need a new AZ trail to hike through, you absolutely have to go to the AZ Hot Springs.
