ONE // College Entry Essays
I love that the NY Times publishes some of the top college essays every year. I always look forward to it. This years’ top pieces are great. It’s a great way to get a sense of what makes an essay great; if you’re applying to college soon file this away!
TWO // National Doughnut Tour
One of my friends from college launched the cutest baking blog. (It often gets picked up and reblogged by LaurenConrad.com, so you know it’s good!) She decided to go on a “national doughnut tour” with one of her friends; they just completed the checklist! It took them two years, but they made it to every one of the best doughnut shops around the country. What a fun way to stay connected with a friend too.
THREE // Post-It War
This story is such a great feel-good one. There is a post-it war going on between two office buildings. So many companies have gotten involved at this point, and the results are quite creative! I couldn’t help but smile as I scrolled through the photos.
FOUR // Striped Monogrammed Weekender
My favorite weekender bag is now available in a navy striped version, and it’s just too cute. I don’t need another one, but if you happen to be in the market, this is the one I’d recommend. It’s so cute, and I think the stripes make it perfect for a travel bag as it’ll disguise and stains that might pop up while on the go.
FIVE // Brielle-iant!
Brielle, the tiny and adorable and crazy smart girl, has a digital series for the Ellen show. I’ve watched this multiple times, and every viewing makes me smile a bit bigger. At the very least watch the part where she talks about the bones in the hand (about 2:30 into the video). I cannot handle the cuteness!
