Spring Break is Upon Us

Happy Friday to all! Today is the last day of classes before spring break. HUZZAH! Besides it being a jovial occasion due to the beginning of break, the weather is prime time right now.

A hipster llama, just cuz.

A hipster llama, just cuz.

It is so sunny and beautiful and everyone is so happy to be alive. I feel like anytime people are leaving for a break of any sort, there is a certain energy on campus that indicates a break is coming. The parking lots start clearing out, the residence halls have a soft quiet that falls over them, and people just radiate a bit of excitement. Another fun aspect of today: a bunch of people dressed in tuxes and fancy dresses with plastic name tags are walking around campus in herds. There is something incredibly funny about a group of sharply dressed people wandering around in a confused daze with a laminated neon plastic tag stuck on their front. I’m not sure who they are or why they’re here, but I feel really good about it.

Back to break: I am just going home for break, but I am so excited. I can’t wait to sit on the couch and watch hours of television and movies and not feel bad about it. I’m also excited to see my friends and family who will be home at the same time. I’m not even trying to get any work done while I’m home, and I’m looking forward to just straight up chillin.

Have a glorious break, and thanks for reading :)

Popmoney

Happy Thursday everyone! Spring break is on the horizon, and you’re probably looking for ways to keep your finances in check while on vacation. Lucky for you, I have just the thing.

Look at them so stylishly transferring money.

Look at them so stylishly transferring money.

My friend Trey’s PR group is promoting a money transfer service called Popmoney, and I think it’s pretty relevant in regards to managing money if you’re traveling over break. You can send and receive money through your checking account, (which most likely is already partnered with Popmoney because a lot of banks are), and you can transfer the money through their website or any type of mobile device. If your bank isn’t a partner, however, don’t fret! You can still use Popmoney. They will just send you an email granting you access for the transfer. For more info on that, click here. And for more info on Popmoney in general, check out their website.

Spring break should be a time of fun and spontaneity, so don’t leave your finances to be spent willy nilly while you let loose the rest of the week.

Have a great rest of the week and thanks for reading :)

Oscar Fashion Recap

Happy Monday all! As I’m sure you know, the Academy Awards were last night. Unfortunately I was unable to watch, but the Internet has gotten me caught up on the red carpet fashion. Let’s discuss, shall we?

Lupita Nyong’o: Wowza does she look stunning. The actress won Best-Supporting Actress for her work in Twelve Years As Slave, and apparently gave an incredible acceptance speech. Unfortunately, Youtube removed any recordings of said speech, so I can’t share it with you. Anyhow, her skin looks flawless, she looks like Cinderella, and she won an Oscar. SHE’S ON FIRE!

Jennifer Lawrence: Everyone and their mother loves Jennifer Lawrence, myself included, but something about her outfit seems a bit off to me. The little flaps on both sides remind me a bit of a mermaid, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Also, her hair makes me feel kind of funny. She is still a wonderful human and an incredibly talented actress.

Emma Watson: Emma Watson is tied with James Franco for my number one celebrity crush, so naturally I am obsessed with her look. Her hair reaches that perfect balance between effortlessly tousled and kempt, while her dress is classically chic. Keep doing you Emma, keep doing you.

Pharrell Williams: Pharrell…what’s happening here? The musician sported a classic tuxedo on top, paired with a pair of tuxedo shorts on bottom. I think perhaps this look could work on amore casual occasion, but the shorts make me wonder, is he pharreal?

Benedict Cumberbatch: I don’t know anything about this British actor, other than the Internet loves him. His outfit looked appropriate for the occasion, but the real winning moment was when he photobombed this photo.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: JGL ties with Ezra Koenig for my second place celebrity crush, so once again, I am digging his threads. He looks as classic and clean as always, and the look on his face looks as if he hears me calling his name off in the distance.

Another noteworthy bit of the evening was how Ellen ordered pizza for everyone, and how the selfie she took blew up Twitter.

Have a great week and thanks for reading :)
