These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things


1. Clemson Football
Clemson football is in high gear right now. It's the best time of the year hands down. I love the chatter of football all across campus. I love the most exciting 25 seconds of college football, I love singing the alma mater with 85,000 people who love it too, I love hearing "pass complete to Hunter Renfrow" and "Touchdown *insert Clemson players name*". I love electrifying days in the Valley. There is simply nothing like it. 

2. Starbucks Pumpkin Muffins
y'all!!! if you havent't had one out march right over to starbz now and order one. will change your life (get it warmed!!!)

They're cute and useful. What could be better????

Best concealer I have ever used hands down. I look like I slept even when I don't. incredible.

I've been supes into not wearing makeup during the week, simply bc that requires effort and I'm very much lacking that right now. So I've been wearing hats all the time. They're so cute and sporty and make me feel trendy.
P.S. this one is on sale

6. My Bed
An endless love affair. The seasons are hanging which makes me just want to curl up in bed and watch my OTH dvds all day long. Ugh Fall Break where u @

What are some of your fav things recently????

XOXO,

Barely Functioning

Well, it happened. 
On Friday, I went to my last first function of the year. How sad is that????
This isn't going to be another sappy senior post. Don't worry. But I just wanted to share some pics from the event. 
The event is "Sweet Home Sigma Kappa" so basically a country theme. There's always a country band that performs, lots of shagging (basically the only way to dance in SC..i'm horrible at it oh well), and this year (and my fav part) incredible chicken tenders. 

Outfit:
My dress is from Red Dress Boutique, a Free People knockoff that i highly recommend. It's deff one of my fav new dresses
+ my boots were a Christmas present like 6 years ago!!







XOXO,

Having Littles 101 + Twin Littles


Okay, so if you have been paying attention to my blog at any point in the past year, I'm sure you have picked up on the fact that I have twins.
No, I did not biologically give birth to two children. I am more single than a pack of pringles and only 21 years old. Holla atcha gurl.
What I mean is that in my sorority (GO SK) everyone has a little (a younger member to look after, be pals with, and do srat things together with). I was blessed with TWO littles. and I am actually obsessed with them #noshame

My littles had never met until the day of Big/Little Reveal
(the whole process of finding out who your big is is a secret until reveal day when you find out who your big is, but the big already knows (if u want another post on this hmu)).

Getting a little is so special!!! & so is getting two littles. It's challenging but so rewarding. Lately, I have been getting a lot of questions about what it's like having two littles. Here is my advice for you.



1. DO NOT PLAY FAVORITES

This is a major topic in the world of twins. It seems to happen all the time. Whenever there's a fam with twins, it seems like one always comes out on top and one is slightly neglected and seems to be unwanted. This happens all the time and it's so sad. As soon as I found out I had twins, I knew I could not let this happen. I love them both equally and love them both in different ways. They are 100% both wanted littles. I wanted them from the beginning and still to this day I want them to know they are both wanted and loved. Here's how I did it...



2. Hang out as a Fam

As soon as reveal happened, I immediately started a group message with the three of us. I wanted to be able to talk to them both and to help them get to know each other faster (Side note: Mal and Mere (my littles) could not have been more opposite at first, they did not even know the others names until reveal, I was gonna change that real quick). I wanted to hang out with both of them together to encourage the fact that the three of us were a fam. I still hung out with them separately when they asked me to, but whenever I asked them to hang out I asked them as a group #FamUnity 

For example, we would study in the lib together, eat, sleepovers, functions, etc.

They also began asking for us to hang out in the group message. So if I couldn't be there, it encouraged them to hang out together and really get to know each other apart from me. And now they're besties, it warms my heart!<3 font="" nbsp="">



3. Invest Your Time

I wanted to hang out with them all the time, and still do. They're my best friends no doubt. Investing your time is the best way to show someone love. New members in a chapter have a lot to handle, so being there for them in their times of need are important. An ily text can go a long way!


The Big/Little process is so special and it has been more than I could have ever asked for. I love my big, I love my twin, I love my littles. 

Long story short, love 'em and love 'em hard. 
Mine made it easy.

XOXO,
E.

Rain Drop, Sky Top + Fall Bucket List






This fall for our Fall Sisterhood retreat, SK went to Sky Top Apple Orchard in North Carolina. It was a fun afternoon spent walking through the orchards, taking LOTS of pictures, a hay ride (that ironically had no hay on it), eating apple donuts (yes, it's a real thing + they are real good).

It was a wonderful afternoon spent with some of my favorite people. I had never been to an apple orchard before so that was exciting!! It was a good way to kick off Fall (even though it is currently 90 degrees in SC rn). I am so ready for cooler weather, sweaters, sweatshirts and cozy candles. Ugh this weather is making it really hard to get into Fall.

...

Since it's officially Fall, I'm making a list of some Fall activities I want to do this season!


-Go to a Pumpkin Patch

-Star Gazing

-Make Smorez!!!
(FUN FACT: smorez are srsly like one of my fav things EVER)

-Watch a scary movie

-Bake pumpkin muffins
...

What's on your Fall Bucket List???


XOXO,

Q+A w/ me (:



I wanted to do a different post so I decided on a Q+A. I just want y'all to get to know me better (bc I'm kinda cool). I asked these questions on Twitter! Follow for a chance to be featured next time!!

-@lifeinaleotard asks "What are your favorite books or beauty products?
I love reading, but can never find the time for it. Lately, I've been into the Harry Potter books. They're a really good series to just dive into and forget about everything else! Some of my all time fav beauty products are Tresemes shampoos and conditioners. They're my go to, I love the volume, moisture and keratin smooth! I've also been really into EOS lip balms for about a year now. They're fabulous. 


-@anchoreditsouth asks "Favorite sport? Favorite thing about college? Latest song obsessions? Career Aspirations? 
I was a cheerleader for 13 years, so cheer will always hold a special place in my heart. But my fav sport to watch is 100% college football, especially Clemson football. 

My favorite thing about college...wow this is a tough one. There are too many to count so I'll name a two. My friends are deff one of my favs. I've made the best friendships in college, ones that I know will last a lifetime. We've made the best memories and I wouldn't trade them for the world (you know who you are). I also love who I've become. Weird I know, but I feel like I've grown up and I know who I am and who I want to be and I love that!!

I have too many career aspirations to count honestly. My main career aspiration is to show people, specifically young girls where their worth is found, that He is greater and show true kindness and love to others. No, it's not a career description you'll find on LinkedIn, but it's definitely the call I know God has put on my life.

-@Jade_B248 asks "Favorite college experience? How was meeting your roommate for the first time? Favorite travel destination?" 

My favorite college experience was 100% the National Championship. It was an incredible and indescribable experience. 
I'm going to do another post all about roomies (:
Well, ironically I'm a Travel & Tourism major but I don't really travel bc #broke #college I've been to Los Angeles before and I was in love. It's honestly like  different world over there, also a big fan of Charleston but who's not???


I really enjoyed writing this post, it's super fun when y'all ask me questions! Let me know if y'all would like to see another soon (:

XOXO,
E.
