DOs and DON’Ts of Henley attire

Henley was amazing. Are you guys getting tired of these posts yet? Haha… I just loved it so much, I can’t stop talking about my trip! Remember my desperate posts to find dresses for the regatta? Well, thankfully I found some great options. This dress is from Gap. Dresses have to be below the knees…


Inbox Zero

I take email very seriously. It’s definitely the most influential form of communication right now and I think it’s something that should be managed in a professional way. But it’s overwhelming. Unlike phones (calls, text messages, etc.), everyone can get in contact with you. Getting an email address is super easy if you know particular cadences…


On My Radar

This was certainly a weird week. I had some sort of bizarre bug that left me just not feeling great. I woke up on Sunday feeling horrible and I continued to feel bad on and off until Wednesday… when I was just too sick to do anything. Sometimes I feel like I need to take a…


Rowing Blazers

My friend Jack Carlson has been working on a coffee table book featuring rowing blazers for years. Jack is Victoria (aka Little V)‘s boyfriend and the three of us were all coxswains on the men’s heavyweight rowing team at Georgetown. Jack is one of the smartest people I know– if not the smartest.

Henley Tour Update!

The Henley Royal Regatta has officially begun! We raced on Wednesday afternoon against a crew that we’ve raced three times during our trip- making this our fourth race. It was weird, but kind of nice to “know” the crew. Henley is different than most sprint races that we’re used to. There are only two boats…


Father’s Day & Henley Update

As you guys know by now, most of my posts are scheduled since I’m overseas. I completely forgot to schedule a Father’s Day post!!! Don’t worry, I did get to send Soccer Dad a text message to wish him a happy Father’s Day. This is one of my favorite favorite favorite pictures of my dad…

Adulting Gifts

I know this seems like such a boring gift guide… but I know a lot of you are in the same boat that I am. My sister, who turns 27 (how?!?!) next month, and I were just talking about how we’re officially old because our idea of perfect gifts are useful things like vacuum cleaners….


Organize, Please… GMAIL

I am a gmail addict and have a huge system worked out. I have a few email accounts.  An AOL one (I know, so 1990s) that I use for pretty much everything, my Georgetown address, and a few gmail accounts. (Speaking of email addresses, you can reach me at carly [at] thecollegeprepster [dot] com) Before I…
