5 Things

This week was (surprisingly) worse than the last. I've become super sad and honestly, don't even leave my house other than to do yoga, and go to work. Every single night I lay in my bed and watch a movie...alone. But, I have a feeling this week will be a little different. Since it's only 2 weeks from today until I leave for school, I have definitely got to start packing! Tomorrow, my mom and I are having a girls day, and we're going to finish my dorm shopping! Next weekend, we're going clothes back to school shopping, so that should be fun too. So this next two weeks are going to be filled with shopping, packing, worrying, planning, and I'm sure organizing too. What are you doing to get ready for back to school?

Here are this week's "5 Things" for some reason, people really seem to love these posts! So I'm going to try to make it the best I can!



1 - College Pinterest Board// For the last twoish years probably I've been pinning things to my College Pinterest board. I've recently started going through them to get tips on studying, dorm room supplies, packing lists, and decorations. It's definitely a must see for any college kid! Maybe you'll learn or see something you didn't already know!

2 - Flats// I have been OBSESSED with flats for some reason recently! I got a nude pair from Forever 21 and a blueish pair from Target that were only $5!! I'm not done though, I still want a leopard pair, black pair, and possibly a red pair! Does anyone know where I can get really cheap ones?

3 - The Skimm// I signed up for the Skimm a while back because I saw it in a Smart Girls Group newsletter and I definitely don't regret it! Every weekday morning they send you the news right to your inbox! Before you say you don't have time, you do! It takes about two minutes to read the whole thing and it covers about 5 different news stories every day. Skimm literally skims the news for you, and puts it together in an easily accessible and easy read to get your news everyday. Interested? You can sign up here. I'm not being sponsored by them, at all, I just really love the Skimm!

4 - Mint// I feel like I'm giving you so many links but these are the things I'm loving! Okay, Mint. It's an online/app site that helps you budget your money. I'm getting ready to readjust my budgets and categories because I won't need gas any longer, but I just might need a booze category (I joke, I joke). And because I'll have less money, I'll need a lower budget ceiling. It's seriously super easy to do, and it really helps a lot! I definitely recommend it!

5 - The Gay Song// I saw this a while ago and it's absolutely hilarious. I honestly feel like this at so many parts of the day because guys still hit on me, and it's very frustrating, so I feel like I should break out into song! Please check it out! Even if you're not gay, it's funny!




What are your five things for this week?

  2. Flats are the best. They can be dressed up or dressed down. Mint is definitely one of my staple colors this summer.

  9. I need that Mint app! Ever since PNC didn't tell me you need a 500 min balance in your checking account or else they charge you monthly (LIKE WHAT!? You can't take away free checking accounts without telling anyone!!!!) I need to start budgeting for real!!

  10. This is a GREAT idea Ally! I can see why people love it so much! I am obsessed with flats, as well, but with such a narrow foot all I get out of them is BAD blisters! And PS - Sperry makes some adorable dressy flats, but they're a little more expensive. I have a pair of leopard print! ;)
