An Ode to Dough Donuts

Imagine this: it's finals week and you're exhausted. You haven't showered in an ungodly number of days, you're wearing the same clothes you've slept in all week, and you can't figure out why your left eye keeps twitching.

It's a rough time and you're inching closer and closer towards hitting rock bottom. You've already missed your shift at work because you couldn't wake up and now you've also slept most of the day away. It's dark out and a rapidly growing feeling of anxiety is inducing a mild panic attack about whether you're going to pass your all-important finals.

And then, your phone lights up. It's a text from your sorority sisters.

"We need dough doughnuts! Help!"

What? Doughnuts? Ah, they want you to bring them to the library where they've been stuck for the past 2345687590 hours. Do you do it? You haven't even gotten anything done yet today and Dough is WAY out of the way for you. But it's Dough, so of course you do it. That's how good it is.

This was the scenario I found myself in roughly a week ago when I was finishing up the semester and my friends sent me an SOS for Dough doughnuts. To be honest, Dough doughnuts are pretty damn delicious and is high key photogenic so of course I jump at any opportunity to get a whole bunch of them and this was no exception, even with my sleep deprivation and overall laziness. Which I understand seems a little insane, but c'mon, just look at them:

Holiday Outfits: Twirling in Tulle

Hello, it's me. I've been excessively MIA these past two months but I'm back now!
As the holiday season unfurls into full swing, festive outfits become an increasingly important necessity for parties, dinners, and of course, Instagram posts. My personal favorite thing to wear to Christmas parties and other winter festivities is a tulle skirt. It's full, it's fun, and you look like a ballerina princess while you twirl around. Now that the semester's winding down, I'll be posting a few more holiday outfit ideas for y'all- so today, here's a simple way to style a tulle skirt this holiday season!

Thanksgiving 2015

Wow, it's been awhile since I've posted anything on here. If I'm being honest, school has been kicking my butt. The past two months have been a blur of homework, class, staying up to finish more homework, more class, writing papers, being tired all the time. Now that the semester's winding down though, I definitely feel more grounded and like myself again. I totally missed posting during November so here's a quick little update on how my Thanksgiving went :)

(My little sister & me being cool)

Meet my Little!!!

I officially have a little! This post is long overdue but I'm so happy to share that I have a perfect and amazing little who I've loved since before she joined Kappa. I actually met Acacia at Meet the Greeks, a tabling event way back in September before formal recruitment started where each organization had members set up at a table to talk to potential new members. The auditorium was way too crowded and loud, so I definitely didn't hear Acacia's name when she introduced herself but we had a nice little chat and I was happy to notice that she stuck around the Kappa table even when Panhel and IGC made announcements that people needed to keep circulating around the room. When I got home that night I told my roommate about the adorable and cool girl I'd briefly met and tried not to get my hopes up that she would go Kappa. Fast forward through recruitment and to Bid Day when I excitedly checked the Bid List to find her name and made sure to be her Bid Day Buddy. I have high key been obsessed with Acacia from the very beginning and my friends have pages of text messages to (sometimes embarrassingly) prove it. Here's a cute picture of us before Kappa's Semi Formal last night!
