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…


How to Be the Best Intern

My friend Jaime from The Prepary is back with more tips for the workplace. This time, she’s sharing super timely tips: ways to be the best summer intern.

College Prepster Book Club

Obviously, there are exceptions to that, but if you think you’re going to have a bad day, it’s going to be a…

Generally, this consists of a post-it note I tuck in my pocket so I find it every so often.  (I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that before on the internet…. so…

This miracle cream is supposed to do everything for your skin from taking away wrinkles to making you the happiest woman alive. Oh, and the packaging is just the cutest ever…


Giveaway :: Jack Rogers

Okay, so I know that I shouldn’t play favorites… but, I mean, it’s really hard not to when the giveaway is with Jack Rogers! The brand is a serious favorite of mine (I begged my mom to let me get a pair when I was in high school) and I absolutely love working with the entire…
