Chapter Fifteen Travels: Hilton Head, SC

Featured Photo Outfit Details: Swimsuit • Hat Visit Now: The best times to visit are in the late spring and summer. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. In the spring, the island is much less crowded so there’s hardly a wait for restaurants and attractions and very little traffic. However, that’s considered the offseason, so some restaurants aren’t open, making the options a little limited. The summer has the opposite problems, everything is open, but since  ...

A Special Post for Alpha Delta Pi Founders’ Day

On May 15, 1851, Alpha Delta Pi sorority was founded in Macon, Georgia. I’ll spare you all the facts I had to learn as an Alpha member. Four years in this sorority made my college experience like no other. I’ll be honest, I didn’t love every single moment. Some days, I’d rather be in bed than at chapter or watching Netflix instead of at a mandatory event. But more often than not, I loved my time in ADPi. I wasn’t even going to go through recruitment but I got  ...

Mothers Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day! The day we celebrate all the moms and grandmas and aunts and mother figures in our lives. I, for one, am always having trouble trying to find something for mothers day gifts. It’s hard to find something that they don’t have or something they really want or need. Every time I ask, the answer I always get is along the lines of “Whatever you get me, I’ll love.” Well, that doesn’t help at all. So that’s why I’ve rounded up nine  ...

Why You Should Run Straight Into Fear

    I have been afraid a lot lately. I was afraid to board a plane (I love flying, but the thought equally amazes and scares me). I was afraid to go to the conference. I was afraid of making real moves to realizing my dream. Why? It is what I want; it is what I wanted since I was, I don’t know, fourteen or fifteen years old. I have also been very comfortable. I moved home to be with my family; my old bedroom is how I like it, I’m spending time with my dog (she’s  ...

Your Path is Okay

  I had my life figured out. Get my B.A. in psychology, graduate. Get my masters, graduate. Get my Ph.D., graduate. Move to Boston, work as a clinical psychologist on the psych ward floor at Mass Gen. Meet a doctor in the lunch line of the cafeteria, get married, move to the suburbs, that whole American dream. That was my path. None of that happened. I did graduate with B.A. in psychology but I decided not to go for my masters or Ph.D. I moved back home to Pittsburgh and not to Boston.  ...

Pittsburgh’s Whiskey Moon Boutique

I love a good boutique. That’s a known fact about me. I’m all for shopping at small stores with unique clothes. Anytime I travel, I’m always looking for somewhere new to shop. And I’ve found some amazing places but back here in Pittsburgh, there are just as many cute, local stores to get a boutique fix. The latest one I’ve found is called Whiskey Moon and it’s a cute, trendy store specializing in women’s clothing, home decor, accessories, and  ...

2018 New Year’s Goals

2018 already? I kind of can’t believe it. With a new year comes all the things you hope to do. I’ve never been one for making New Year’s resolutions and trying to stick to them throughout the year.  I think it’s hard, doable, but hard. Instead, this year, I’m setting some goals that I would love to accomplish in 2018. Something about this wording seems a little softer, allowing for more mistakes, letting myself work towards something as opposed to turning a  ...
