I can’t believe Spring Break is almost over – after this, we only have six more weeks of school left before the summer. Crazy stuff. Summer’s proximity not only means I have to start finding a job, I have to find the perfect pair of summer sandals as well : )
This year, I want to invest in a pair of Jack Rogers sandals. I’ve seen them everywhere for years – on all my favorite blogs, on Pinterest and on tumblr! I’ve always thought they’re adorable and add a classic touch to every outfit, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about them from friends who have a pair. I’m torn between the Navajo and the Lauren, above. I also love the sorority Navajo in blue and pink (but knowing me, I probably couldn’t match those as well!)
Do you have a pair of Jack Rogers? What do you think about them? I’d love to hear!
I know I’ve posted this photo before, but it’s one of my favorites and just describes me and my sister Anna perfectly. Of course we were reading guide books and geography bee prep guides on the subway in NYC : – )
I have always, always been fascinated by other countries and people and places to explore. Living in London as a child (fortunately) allowed me to travel pretty extensively with my family, at least for a 7-year-old. I’m so grateful for the experiences I had exploring other countries and meeting people from all over. On the flip side of this, though, I’ve suffered from wanderlust almost my entire life. I would love nothing more than to drop out of school and fly (and sail) around the world, but that’s not really possible at the moment : )
I just found the most amazing Internet time-waster, though, which combines my love for geography with online quizzes – GeoGuessr! You’re shown photos of places (most of them are pretty unremarkable) and then you place a pin on a map of where you think it is. Most of the time I’m thousands of miles off, but it’s really interesting to see what places around the world look like. I’ll probably spend the rest of my break playing…it’s addicting!
What about you – do you love to travel and explore? What are some of your dream destinations?

As the oldest of four girls (and the only dark brunette) I’ve always wanted blonde hair. Not anything super blonde, of course, but just something different from my brown locks : ) After being inspired by Julia of Gal Meets Glam, I realized what I was looking for. I wanted to keep my roots dark for easier upkeep but lighten up my hair overall (similar to Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s hair, above).
Over the past couple of months I’ve been going to Todd at He Does Hair in Broad Ripple. He’s amazing! I’ve visited twice so far, and each time my hair looks even better. The first time I went to Todd, I hadn’t had a hair cut in over a year, so I was worried. But he does such a good job, and I’m officially on my way to becoming blonde. Hopefully I have more fun!
What about you? Do you like to change up your hair?
“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
I’ve really had to keep this in mind this week as I’ve gone through formal recruitment at college. Though this is such a fun week, with each day filled with wonderful new girls and experiences, it is also very stressful and nerve-wracking. I’m very thankful and humbled every day when I receive my schedule, and I’ve been very lucky so far. It’s hard, though, to see girls, especially close friends, get their feelings hurt and become disappointed. It’s definitely tough to hear this when your dreams have just been dashed, but I know this to be true: it will all turn out for the best in the end.
