Little Discoveries

I was thinking about starting off this post with another "This week was tough, hopefully next week is better" but I really don't want to jinx it so let's go with "I'm taking a last-minute trip home for my little sister's birthday so wish me luck on staying on top of everything else going on in my life".

Was that too much?

I'm really excited to spend time with my family for the first time since I moved back down here for the school year. I have been really busy and haven't really been able to talk to them too much lately.

Also, this whole flight fiasco has been one big, well, Fiasco. Yes, with a capital F. My flight leaves in a few hours so I'll talk to y'all soon!

P. S. Here's a sneak peek into my room - I'm still not done decorating, but when done, it will definitely have its own post on here!

YAY Courtney and Cats | Facebook's most popular post this past quarter is THIS video, put together by one of my very best friends and mentors, Courtney. C interned with America's Funniest Home Videos over the summer (IN ADDITION TO INTERNING IN CANNES), so I guess you could say I have some pretty cool friends.

Designer Double Mastectomy Bras | 100% love this. Breast cancer runs in part of my family so campaigns like this always brighten my days. Stella McCartney is releasing a new bra line just for breast cancer survivors and supporters and although the prices are a bit much for my liking, I definitely support the idea.

Baby Waldorf Is In The Building | Have you heard the good news? In case you non-Upper East Siders haven't heard, Queen B's had a baby and it's a little girl named Arlo Day. Leighton and her husband, Adam, are a gorgeous couple and you can only imagine how adorable little Arlo is.

Dealing With Criticism | I love when Maxie guest posts on The College Prepster because her posts are always about feeling better about yourself and life. Oftentimes, Maxie's advice is somehow really well-timed with things going on in my life and I'm really happy for it!

Falllon's Barbershop Quartet Covers Rihanna | Last night, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (one of the many men on my list of imaginary husbands) guest-starred on another episode of Fallon and it was great. On top of the regular shenanigans, Levitt joined the barbershop quartet to sing Rihanna. How did you spend your Thursday night?

The Pope In NYC | The Pope has been keeping himself busy on his tour of the world, and in case you didn't know, he's here in the States! I was taking a look at the schedule and I guess I don't have a chance of seeing him (side note: I didn't have the chance to see him when I was at the Vatican this summer) but this article did make me smile quite a bit.

Studying For Exams | This is the latest Freshman Five post I published last week and I just wanted to thank y'all so much for your support. I have received quite a few beyond thoughtful comments and emails and I'm really glad that so many of you find this post helpful!

Are you excited for this weekend?!
