I got it from my mama

Who would've thought? There's some wisdom in's lyrics "Baby, where'd you get your body from? I got it from my mama." Okay so I'm not exactly talking about getting your junk in the trunk from your mom (although if you did get a nice booty from her, feel free to thank her this Mother's Day!) What I mean is I have inherited so many things from my mom- a big heart, the desire to please others, confidence, and integrity, among a multitude of other things.  Every quality that is similar to hers in any way, I am grateful for because my mom is such an amazing and inspirational person. And I never ever ever tell her that.  

If you're anything like me, and sometimes always forget to tell your mom how much you care, make her a heartfelt Mother's Day card!  I tried out this website called amazing.  You can create custom cards by adding personal photos, personalized messages and your signature for a personal touch. Cardstore can als…

The Best Free Apps

True Life: I'm addicted to my iPhone.  What can that little device not do?  It's a calculator, iPod, phone, camera, flashlight, the list goes on and on.  Besides the popular apps- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest, SnapChat, etc- there are so many more useful ones right at your fingertips ( ha literally).  Whether you love to shop, want to edit photos, or just listen to music I guarantee there's an app for you, and better yet it's probably free!  If you shop somewhere often, search to see if there's an app so you can get exclusive deals or rewards (Victoria's Secret, anyone?).  Or maybe download one of the airline apps if you travel a lot.  If you're obsessed with a TV or music artist, check out what the app store has to offer.  After you're done, check on some of my faves- you may fall in love.  

Find My Phone

What in the world did I do without this app?!  I guess, not so much the app as connecting my iPhone with iCloud.  I literally lose my phone 3…

Your Brand of Beautiful

This Thursday I did something I've never done before- I went to a Drag Show. And let me tell you, it was an experience!  If you know anything about me I live for trying new things. Seriously, my bucket list is miles long. So when my friend Ally told me about the Drag Show I was up for it one hundred percent.  Plus, in one of my classes we were talking about the show RuPaul's Drag Race and one of the contestants from Season 2, Jujubee, was hosting it.  I mean, I've never seen the show, but I'm a sucker for celebrities even if I have no idea who they are.  (Yes I am pathetic if that's what you were thinking.)  

I went with my two friends Erin and Ally.  It was held at the Memorial Union Great Hall, so basically a huge room with a stage set up and about four hundred people.  Everyone was so jacked to be there which was probably one of the best parts!  Besides Jujubee. 

Omg I'm literally obsessed with her (him?)  Jujubee if you ever read this, can we please be best f…

Liebster Award

I was so excited to find out I was nominated for the Liebster Award!  Mainly because it sounded cool.  I actually had absolutely no idea what it was.   Okay so here' s the low-down.  The Liebster Award is passed along among bloggers.  The person who receives the award has to answer eleven questions about themselves that the person who nominated them came up with.  Then after answering the questions, the person must nominate eleven other bloggers and come up with questions for them.  How fun!  I love answering random questions about myself.  Probably because it forces me to think about things I usually don't think about.  Seriously, way better than homework.  

Fun fact: Liebster is a  German word meaning sweetheart, dearest, darling, favorite.  Ahhh, now I understand why I got the nomination.  I'd say I'm a pretty accurate representation of all those words.  Just kidding. are my answers.    1.What’s the hardest lesson you’ve had to learn? Not everyone will …
