Finding a good bra has always been a huge struggle for me. I also know I am not the only girl out there that has this problem. I have gathered up several of my favorite tried and true bras to share in hopes that it will help some of you find your perfect bra. All of these bras can be found at Nordstrom (not sponsored) I personally love to shop in their intimates department because their specialists are always more then helpful and they cary a wider variety of sizes and colors then most other department stores. Also if you do not have a Nordstrom near you I suggest loading up your cart with several you want to try, order, and then return the ones that don’t work since Nordstrom always offers free shipping. If you have a favorite bra that is DDD+ please let me know I would love to try it out 🙂
My favorite part of spring has to be getting together with my family and cooking out. What we are grilling might change from week to week but one thing that I can always count on is a pitcher of Lipton tea to be on the dinner table. My family tried to stay away from sodas since they are full of sugar or artificial sweetness, but we can add what ever we please into our Lipton tea. Lipton’s new black and herbal varieties and improved green teas refresh the tea experience with bold and stimulating flavors. Real ingredients combine with their best herbal tea blends to awaken the senses. Today I am sharing two of my favorite Lipton teas, get excited one of them is for adults only 🙂
One of my favorite cocktails is a lemon drop. What a fun way to spice it up by adding in some lemon ginger tea to add a little extra flavor. These turned out to be a huge hit and were well enjoyed by me and my mother. There are many great benefits of ginger. It improves digestion, lowers blood pressure, and is anti inflammatory. Adding in some Lipton lemon ginger tea to your cocktail is doing your body some good.
The second new tea I wanted to try was the Lipton berry hibiscus which just let me tell you, is amazing! I added in just a little sugar and fresh blueberries and mint leaves. This created such a fresh and tasty beverage perfect for spring cookouts. I want to encourage all of you to take some time out of your week to spend with your family and sit down for a homemade dinner and a pitcher of Lipton tea. Next time you are at the grocery pick up a box of Lipton’s new teas and here is a coupon for $0.75 off any 1 Lipton Black, Green, or Herbal 20ct tea

- Bold your name (even make it a slighter larger font)

Creating a cute and relaxing work space is so important to having a productive day in the office. I think it is so important to have flowers on your desk, they don’t have to be real but they add such a lively touch. Today I have teamed up with Minted to share how I have accessorized my wall space in my office with the beautiful artwork. I love mixing different fame styles and sizes to create a custom look for each space. They have several frame choices to fit your style along with the choice of many sizes you would like your print to be. I wanted to create a bright girly feel for my office space which these three pictures do so well. Being in a drab boring apartment there is not much I can do to make the space feel like it’s mine, but after hanging some artwork on the wall instantly the space feels more at home and welcoming.
Minted also offers many printing specialties for your own personal pictures so you can create personal beautiful artwork that features your family and loved ones. Also with fun holidays, weddings, and graduation coming up Minted offers a wide variety of customizable cards perfect for every occasion.

Taking good notes in class is not as easy as it sounds, but the Wacom Bamboo Spark certainly helps the process be a little more organized. Many of us still learn best from writing down physical notes instead of typing on a computer. Many studies have proven that we learn things better when we are forced to physically write them out. With the new Bamboo Spark you are able to write your notes by hand with a real pen and paper and then have them transcribed onto your ipad, iphone, or laptop, for later when studying. I am impressed with how “smart” the Bamboo Spark is, not only can it take a pdf of my notes and send it to my laptop, it can transfer my notes into a word document where I can then add or edit anything I have written during class. This is a great feature when it comes time to writing an essay, because you can use your notes as an outline to get you started. My friends have been loving my Bamboo Spark because if anyone misses class, I can easily email them a pdf or a word document of that day’s notes.
Taking great notes can really change your class experience and overall grade, here are my note taking tips.
- Use Abbreviations– I used to be really against using abbreviations, why I’m not sure haha. But over time I have learned them to be quite helpful. There are classic ones like w/ @ bc … and so on, but also you can create your own for words or short phrases used a lot in your classes.
- Don’t write in complete sentences– These are for your own personal use. Don’t waste your time trying to write in complete sentences. Just write down the important things. Also use non-traditional formats if that helps you write things down quicker and clearly. I tend to do ” ” a lot in a class when the idea is similar to what I just said above.
- Don’t worry about making it look pretty– I think most girls are guilty of this. We are so focused on making sure our handwriting looks pretty we end up falling behind the teacher and what they are saying. There is a time and place for pretty penmanship and notes is not the place. When I look at a full page of my notes I see my handwriting progressively gets sloppier as I get to the end of the page haha. The great thing about Bamboo Spark, is it doesn’t care! And I can transfer my notes to Word, and then they are all pretty again.
- Focus on main points – Not everything your teacher says is “important.” Focus on taking notes on main points and not writing down definitions that you can get from the textbook later.
