New York State of Mind: Part I

Recently I was able to take a mini break from all the craziness of life to travel to New York City to meet up with some of the friends I made in Norway while studying abroad. We were able to pack a lot into 3 days so I decided that I’m going to do a…

Nursing School

Well hello there! It has been a while! School seems to consume most of my life now so its been hard to find free time to just sit down with a clear head and write. I kind of wanted to talk about school and what its like to finally be studying things I’m passionate about….

70’s Style

I have been loving the 70’s trend that has been making its comeback the last few seasons. One of my favorite looks from this trend are the wide-legged/flare bottom jeans. The ones I have are ridiculously comfortable and I’m just obsessed with the style. I love pairing these jeans with a basic top… Like this…

Guest Post: End of the Summer Treat

Hello, everyone! This is not Rachel, your favorite blogger. Wait, what? Let me introduce myself! My name is Madeline and I’ve been a self-proclaimed foodie for as long as I can remember! Not-so-coincidentally, I’m a few semesters away from obtaining my bachelor’s in nutrition, and I’m on the path to study medicine, my other beloved…

Breezy Vibes

One of my favorite things to wear during the hot summer months are shirts/dresses that don’t cling to your body. This flowy shirt from Curious Clothing has been one of my favorites all summer long. I have been loving green this summer and this shirt is the perfect color. Besides being flowy, I have been loving the…

Worth the wait…

This summer has been going by so fast but it has definitely been one I’ll never forget. I have been busy working in the ER, nannying full time and I decided working 50+ hours a week wasn’t enough to keep me busy so I took an online summer course. I love staying busy but it…

Summer essentials

Summer is finally here in North Dakota and I couldn’t be more excited to take in every minute of the long hot summer days. Summers in North Dakota/Minnesota mean weekends spent at the lake in or on the water, road trips, lots of bonfires (with, of course s’mores), going to the drive-in movie theatre, and…

Traveling on a Budget

If you’re anything like me, you’re eager to travel and see the world but you’re also broke! While studying abroad I was able to see and do everything I hoped I could, on a budget. I did a lot of research before hand for ways to save money. I thought I could share what websites…

Spring Style

Spring is my favorite time of the year. Everything is coming back to life after a long winter, all the beautiful flowers are blooming, school is almost out, and my birthday! 😉 I wanted to change things up a little on my blog today! I have always loved fashion. When I was younger before the idea…

Knowing your worth

As many of my friends know, I am a HUGE John Mayer fan… I have every song memorized word-for-word, I’ve been to a few concerts, and have confessed that if I could marrying anyone in the world… it would probably be him. 😉 The other day while listening to (you guessed it) JM, some of his lyrics…

6 months later…

6 months ago this week my parents and I were in Rochester, MN dealing with something we never thought we would have to worry about. I was heading there, not knowing what was to come or what my future looked like anymore. This was a challenging time in our lives and continues to be every…

Change

Change can be hard if you aren’t ready for it, but sometimes you have to accept it and look at the positives that change can bring. A new year brings new opportunities and a fresh start (whole bunch of cliches right off the bat 😉 ). Coming home after being gone for 5 months has…
