Rue La La is a website that has tons of deals on name brand designers. They almost always have Jack Rogers and Lilly Pulitzer under some category. There’s a ton of options of things to buy, from clothes to kitchen supplies to whole vacations! I haven’t bought anything from this site yet, but I am always so tempted!
Every year, it gets harder and harder to find a gift that is suitable for my wonderful mom. This year I went to the Hallmark store in my town and got the perfect card, and I was planning on getting my mom some of her favorite flowers and chocolates. HOWEVER, I ran across the perfect Groupon for a massage and decided, with a little help from my younger sister, that it would be a more suitable gift.
A Groupon is a perfect gift for a college student to give. Let’s face it, we’re not made of money, no matter how much we try to deny it. When I get my parents gifts, I like to buy them with my own money because I feel like buying them with their money defeats the purpose. I got my mom a 60 minute massage, plus a 15 minute HydroLuXe massage (whatever that means) for $30! (originally a $90 value) I think this is a gift that will help her unwind AND it fits in my budget.
On a more strict budget? Your mom would love anything that comes from the heart. A card that you spend some quality time picking out could be something she cherishes for years. Here’s some ideas of gifts from Target that Mom will love.
Another idea is pulling out that bucket of craft supplies in your closet (we all have one) and making Mom a cute craft. My first year in a sorority, I made my mom a paddle for Mother’s Day. There are so many things that you can do with a little time and effort!
Spray paint some old vases to make them into a new gift.
Craft some old mason jars (these are baby food jars, so you could do that if you have them) with ribbons and buttons and secure it with hot glue or Mod Podge! Add a few seeds or cheap flowers you can pot yourself to make a great, cheap gift.
In my last post, I talked about my 4.0 GPA this semester. I made a goal at the beginning of the semester to get a perfect GPA, and I also gave myself a physical treat to work toward if I obtained my goal. My very first pair of Jack Rogers was my motivation to work hard for that GPA.
Now that I have the grades, I have to figure out which shoes I want! I’m looking for something pretty neutral so I can wear them with EVERYTHING (I’m pretty excited to get these shoes).
Here are some of my favorites:
Jack Rogers navajo sandals | Jack rogers wedge | Jack Rogers navajo shoes | Jack Rogers short heel shoes | Jack Rogers short heel shoes | Jack Rogers navajo sandals | Jack Rogers navajo sandals | Jack Rogers short heel shoes | Jack Rogers navajo sandals | Jack Rogers navajo shoes
I haven’t posted in a LOOOOONG time, mostly because class and everything else in my life took precedent. Here are a few things that have happened since…December.
I turned 21.
I have been loving going out with friends, but turning 21 was not as huge of a deal as everyone makes it seem.
(I’m totally kidding, it’s been AWESOME.)
I ran for election.
I had a position on our Student Government’s Executive Board last year and decided to run for PRESIDENT this year! I won (I was unopposed), and so did my running mate, Nasir. We’re so excited to get started next year in our own office. I’m officially almost an adult.
I got a 4.0 GPA!
This might be one of the most exciting things (for me) that happened in the last few months. I made a goal at the beginning of the semester to get a 4.0 GPA for the semester to raise my cumulative GPA. And I did it!
What are you most excited about that happened in the last couple months?
