Little Discoveries

A bit of a longer Little Discoveries this week because like life, it has just been buzzing non-stop. A lot of fun things have been put into the works and happening lately - I just can't wait to be able to share with y'all, it's so exciting!

Also, like the jewelry in the photo below? Join Rocksbox, a monthly jewelry rental subscription, with the code "theswprepxoxo" for your first month free! You can send it back and forth as many times as you want for new pieces (shipping both ways is covered) and if you decide you want to keep it, you can purchase any of the pieces at a discount. How cool is that?!

The Skimm Life | I am a huge advocate of staying on top of what's going on in the world, despite how busy your life can get. Every morning as I rush to my classes and chew my granola bar, I read The Skimm and New York Times in my inbox. This is not only the easiest way to keep yourself in-the-loop but also for small-talk in meetings and interviews!

A Quick Word From the First Lady | One of the things that has been emphasized in my politics class this semester is that the Presidency really isn't just about the President - there are many other aspects but let's focus on the First Lady for a minute. Michelle Obama has done a lot of work over the past few years on healthy living and female empowerment - this quick video is just a small, cute little piece of it!

DC Food Tours - Where Do I Sign Up | I have followed Katie's blog for about as long as I've been blogging, and she never fails to leave me slightly upset that I don't live on the other side of the country! Warning: Don't read this post if you're not prepared to die over the sounds of the amazing food tours!

Better than the Selfie Stick? | All of the photos I have of me and my dog include her looking away or trying to lick me - not a single selfie with my pup! At one point, I attempted the use of a selfie stick with the dog and let's say that didn't turn out well... This popped up on my feed a few days ago and just thought I'd share because puppies and selfies are real baes.

The Stages of Coffee Detox | Considering the unhealthy amount of caffeine I have consumed this week alone, I thought I'd share this because trying to come off of a long coffee week is rough, especially for college kids!

Chasing Life No More | I really liked ABC Family's Chasing Life, it was a nice change of pace compared to some of their other shows. Unfortunately, after only the second season, the show has been cancelled for low ratings. To be honest, I haven't watched in a while because I've been busy, but also because I'm still a bit salty about a certain character death. Maybe other people agree?

Your Uber Driver is Rating You | In the back of my mind, I knew this was happening but it hadn't really registered in my mind until now. I have been using Uber quite a bit lately for meetings that are a bit close to campus but don't have any parking. Not sure if I want to check my score, will you?

I am ready for the weekend - are you? What are you looking forward to?

Catch you next time.

  8. Great round-up!! I recently got the NY Times app on my phone (for a journalism class) and I've been enjoying the push notifications it sends to my phone.
    And I didn't watch Chasing Life but I heard good things about it!! It did sound interesting and different as far as ABC Family shows go!

  17. I LOVE Skimm! It helps me keep up with the world in less than two minutes! And I consume way too much coffee. I know it, it's a problem, but maybe the detox will help!
