Stress Tested: CHI Dry Shampoo

As some of you might have seen on my SnapChat late last week, I was a camp counselor at Camp Carey! My co-facilitator and I were responsible for leading 10 freshmen through team-building activities and getting them pumped for school to start later this week!

Anyways, as from the name you might have thought "Oh wow, she went into the woods?" Yes. Yes I did. I was pestered by bugs quite a bit despite my endless use of bug spray but I survived! Being in the middle of a forest is not so great for the hair when you're constantly running around long before sun up and long after sun down.

Right before I left for camp I received the CHI Dry Shampoo from Seventeen and haphazardly threw it into my camp bag to test out at camp. The routine at camp was to shower the night before or the morning of, and then dry shampoo halfway through the day because the weather was slightly awful.

Brining along the CHI Dry Shampoo actually turned out to be a great decision! Being able to stress test this product in the forest really sold me on it. Over the past few months, I had been shopping around for a new dry shampoo because my hair doesn't seem to be responding to my old one anymore - Seventeen really had my back on this one!

Do you use a dry shampoo? What do you think of it?

Catch you next time.

Little Discoveries

Happy Friday, y'all! This week has been equal parts awesome and awful, so I hope everyone else's week has gone well. The weather has been pretty bad down here as well, I have not walked to class in anything below 110 degrees (past 7 o'clock at night!) in a long time!

FLOTUS Rocks Carpool Karaoke | If you have not seen this yet, then you need to watch it now! Carpool Karaoke is always amazing but our First Lady just made this new installment downright left me hysterically pleased.

#WardRobes4Teens | This video made me really, really happy! Being in the hospital is not fun, and creativity and expression is one of the best ways to bring some light and smiles back into people's lives.

Coral Romper | I love rompers and this one is just too cute not to share! It comes in other colors, but I think that this coral color is perfect for both spring and summer.

Panera Things | This was pretty hilarious! I love Panera Bread and this post had me and my roommates cracking up. Some are tips on how to get food while others are TMYK's (like #17).

Times Higher Education Survey | I know I already mentioned this last week, but it's awesome and important so I figured it would not be a bad idea to mention it one more time. The Times Higher Education Survey is now live! Filling this out not only helps share your voice on your education, but also enters you for a chance at a $30,000 scholarship!

How has your week been so far? Anything exciting happening this weekend?

Catch you next time.

6 T-Shirt Dresses Under $50

Lately I have been obsessed with t-shirt dresses. If you follow me on SnapChat, you might have noticed that I have been wearing three of them on repeat over the past few weeks - I can't help it, they're just great.

If you remember some of my study abroad posts last summer, I bought my first shirt dress in Prague before I left the city to go backpacking around more of central Europe. A year later, I had worn this dress so much that when I saw them going on sale, I knew I had to grab a few and share them with y'all.

Under $50

Under $20

I have the H&M long t-shirts and love them! I know they're not technically shirt dresses, but for girls who are on the shorter side (like me!), they are long enough to wear on their own. I have two dresses in this style (only $20 total!), in the black with grey stripes and the grey.

Catch you next time.

Little Discoveries

Happy Friday, y'all! Hope this past week has been interesting, and if not, then HOORAY it's Fri-YAY and the weekend is about to start.

This past week has been a bit busy in terms of schoolwork (another exam coming up on Tuesday!) and getting some of my internship details hammered out - I actually have a meeting with my director today so I am very excited to find out more about what I will be doing. The picture below is a delicious lobster roll I had during brunch at the Montauk on Sunday to celebrate my friend Y's 21st birthday.

Team USA Women | I love Little Mix, and using their song on this video to celebrate the women who have joined Team USA just made me so happy! Watching the Olympic trials has been so much fun and it's absolutely amazing to see some of our nation's greatest athletic talents.

Food for Hiddleswift Thoughts | I am usually down to hear conspiracy theories, if only to try to understand how other people think. I know Tom Hiddleston just confirmed the couple are actually 'together', this little piece was too interesting not to share.

Firefighter Whack-A-Mole | This firefighter crew's training is hilarious - you need to watch this video for a good laugh!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | If you already have a Nordstrom card then you have early access to the sale. If you don't and you want to wait, then it's definitely not too early to start scoping out what you want! There is so much going on in this sale, from cute coats like this to adorable booties like this pair for the Fall.

Legally Blonde is 15 | Earlier this week, Legally Blonde turned 15 and the world went crazy as Reese Witherspoon did everything from showing off one of the infamous Elle Woods outfits to sharing funny stories on her SnapChat.

Times Higher Education Survey | The Times Higher Education Survey is now live! Filling this out not only helps share your voice on your education, but also enters you for a chance at a $30,000 scholarship!

How was your week? What are you looking forward to?

Catch you next time.
