It was a Saturday night a few weeks days before I was heading back to Georgetown University for my sophomore year of college. My friends were all going to Applebee’s to eat half price appetizers and spend quality time with each other before returning to their respective colleges and universities.
Instead of joining the girls, I laid in my bed and cried. I didn’t go to Applebee’s that night because I didn’t want to eat. And I knew, that if I had gone and sat in front of all those greasy foods, I would have binged.
I didn’t know what it was at the time, but I knew that I had a serious problem. I knew that if I didn’t want to hang out with my best friends just because I was afraid to eat, something was wrong. Fortunately, with eating disorders, recognizing that there is a problem and wanting to change it is often the first step.
I went back to Georgetown and started meeting with my school dietitian. I began to learn that taking care of myself, was so much more than just what I ate or how often I exercised. I learned to start loving myself and truly caring for my whole being- mind, body, and soul.
After almost a year of working on my eating habits and feeling good about myself in general, I finally found balance with my health. But, what I thought would be a breath of fresh air, was far from it.
*Zazzle was kind enough to send me these items for free, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. I only suggest brands that I know and love!
I leave for Scotland in about four days and omg I have so much to do. There are so many little things that go into traveling abroad, let alone studying abroad, so I’ve been hella stressed. Thankfully, Zazzle was sweet enough to send me a few items to make prepping for my semester so much easier.
I’ve been using Zazzle for years to make customized gifts for my friends (and myself) so I was so excited when they reached out to me. So thank you to them! Now let’s get into these last-minute study abroad supplies!

I’ve lived in the same dorm structure every year in college, and I’m highkey debating switching to off-campus housing last year. Living in the dorms has its advantages, but more and more of my friends are moving off campus and I’m always so jealous of their cute (and much larger spaces) when I visit!
It’s getting to be the time of year when students are thinking about where they’re going to live next year and who their roommate is going to be, so I’d thought I’d share my pros and cons list of living in the dorms and of getting an apartment to help some of y’all out!

If you haven’t noticed, I have been obsessed with home decor this semester. I just love adding new touches to my dorm to make it seem more like a home, and not just a barren jail cell.
I’ve been adding a bunch of new pieces to my dorm since I moved in at the beginning of August, but today I’m sharing my latest additions. Plus, how to make them yourself thanks to Devine Color + Target!
