Eh…

I was so looking forward to the spring collection from Vineyard Vines. I thought they did a FANTASTIC job with the fall collection (especially compared to Lilly’s lackluster fall clothing)… I just got the email for the new Spring arrivals, and I have to admit, I’m a bit disappointed. The colors are okay, but I’m…

Out with the OLD, in with the NEW!

I did a post at the beginning of Fall semester about what was in my tote bag. I used that Lilly tote through September, but it’s not exactly appropriate for fall or winter. I switched to my trusty Vineyard Vines tote, which I absolutely adore. The girls from my freshman dorm gave it to me…

Looking for a good book?

Please run, don’t walk to your local bookstore/library and pick up a copy of this book!!! California Funk gave it to me for Christmas and I read it in a few sittings. It is just absolutely phenomenal. LIFE CHANGING. -College Prepster

As you may recall in my 2009 Favorites blog post, I am really feeling the flannel. The freshmen boys on the team were really feeling the flannel during the winter training trip. They were always rocking the flannel shirts. I love them to death… they wanted to be on the blog, but I didn’t get…

I love giving gifts! PART 1

Picking out gifts is one of my favorite things to do. I love to put a lot of thought into finding the perfect gift. (I’m pretty good at picking out perfect gifts for myself too haha just kidding!) I like to get stuff that I know the recipient will use. How many times have you…

My 2009 Favorites

Here are 10 things I LOVED during 2009 that I will continue to LOVE throughout 2010! 1) Hunter Wellington boots… I got them towards the end of ’09, but I’m already obsessed. I know I will continue to wear them for years to come. I’m not such a huge fan of weird colored ones though….

ONE YEAR!

One year ago [from yesterday], I published my first post. I decided to make a blog one late night in my freshman dorm’s common room. I was super stressed out about final exams. I kept saying how I wanted to do something cool and different… I came up with the name first: College Prep. And…
