Did you all see?! The April edition of Teen Vogue is out and it’s their Dream Prom edition. They have some great dresses in the issue and a section on the “Do’s and Don’ts of Men’s Formalwear!” Let’s face it, the guys love getting dressed up too (even if they are reluctant to show it), but most of the time they don’t know what in the world they are supposed to do when it comes to “getting their fancy on”! My favorite tip?! Recommend he forgo the tux rental and wear a suit. And if he purchases a suit, he will get WAY more use out of it. Pair it with a funky bow tie that fits his personality, and PRESTO…we have style! And let’s face it, girls think bow ties are adorable! So check out the latest issue of Teen Vogue and grab some more great tips!
And so all the information is in one spot for you, here is a summary of my Prom Blog Series!

I fully believe on living life with intent…intent to experience everything this great world has to offer and live with no regrets! We all have one shot at life, and I believe we need to make it count! So I thought I’d share my bucket list with you!
A bucket list sounds sort of morbid at first, and then it sounds totally inspiring! It’s a list of everything you want to experience in your lifetime…basically, what do you want to do before you “kick the bucket”? Well, I’m a girl that likes to have fun, so I created a list so I can hold myself accountable! It’s SO easy to make one! Simply go on Pinterest, and start pinning away! You’ll be inspired going through countless boards and have your own bucket list ready in no time!
Click on the photo below and it will take you to my board! Which one do you like best?! Oh please do tell…
And if you enjoy putting a bucket list together, you will want to stay tuned…I have an Intentional Living/Goal Setting class that I’m in the midst of writing for you all RIGHT NOW! Because let’s face it…smart girls live with purpose and intent!
I was on Facebook the other night when my friend Christie posted…
“I find it extremely frustrating when students want letters of recommendation from me for college but lack the maturity to come and ask me themselves. Instead I get emails from their parents. Whatever will these kids do once they get into college??”
And I immediately thought, SERIOUSLY?! So I thought I’d write a post on the ins-and-outs of asking for a letter of recommendation! It never hurts to make sure your manners are in tip-top shape when it comes to your teachers!
Whatever you do, don’t get mom or dad to ask the adult for the letter of recommendation! And DON’T ask for a letter of recommendation via email. HUGE no-no’s and I’m pretty sure there will probably be no extra effort put forth in your letter! Teachers prefer face-to-face interaction, so go with it! Let’s face it, their letter could be the deciding factor on the “ACCEPTED” stamp or “PASS” stamp. Be genuine, grateful, and helpful every step of the way.
Good luck with those scholarship applications this year!
So my mom was visiting and she told me that she put Coconut Oil in her hair overnight, as a deep conditioner, and it worked like a charm. I may have been slightly nervous, considering…
When I was in high school, I tried putting mayonnaise in my hair like a magazine article suggested and it was TRAGIC.
When I say tragic, I mean my hair looked greasy for a good month. I.COULD.NOT.GET.IT.OUT.
But when I saw my mom’s hair was not a disaster, I decided to give it a shot. I simply put a little in the length/ends of my hair (not all the way up at the roots like the wonderful mayonnaise solution). A little coconut oil goes a long way (I wish they told me that in the mayonnaise article…can you tell I’m still bitter about it?!). And to give you an idea, I treated it like I was putting a pomade in my hair. I pulled my hair back in a pony tail while sleeping that night and washed it out in the morning (I shampooed twice). And I have to say, it really conditioned it well. So if your hair is suffering the effects of the cold winter, you might want to consider giving it a shot!
