My Monday Musts

So yesterday my overly tired self managed to hit save draft instead of publish, so of course a week wouldn’t be complete without my Monday Musts! Just a little late, but here is yesterday’s post – 

Happy Monday, readers!

This Monday for me is a rather cranky, tired Monday after a long day yesterday.  The 1 am – 3 am study session that I had to have for my 8 am was not exactly what I was planning for my first nutrition exam. However, since I was up so long from being with my sisters from 11 am – 1 am the next day, I think it was worth it. And now that the test is done and over with, I can continue on with the rest of my long day – classes, homework, yearbook meetings, and a sorority event and just hope that it can all get better from here!

Here it is, readers – this week’s Monday Musts!

1. “As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral”

If you take a peak into my closet, you can tell that I am definitely a Jersey Girl – glitter and animal print everywhere! Some of my college friends, who don’t understand a Jersey girl’s love for animal print, think it’s crazy how much I love it and wear it. While recently scrolling my Facebook feed this week, I saw someone posted a photo saying a quote from the J.Crew President, Jenna Lyons. The quote stated – “As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.” I can’t tell you how much I fell in love with this quote. I believe that fashion is a great way to express yourself – even if that means just sweatpants to show your mood (aka me today.) But every part of your outfit manages to express something about you. When much of my closet is consisting of leopard – shirts, skirts, hair accessories, and animal prints as details on sweatshirts – I can’t help but have it become a basic – even a neutral. Thank you, to the fashion queen Jenna Lyons, for my new favorite quote!

2. Spirit Jersey

Obviously my sorority girl has been coming out recently (I mean have you checked out this post about my absolute love for being in a sorority?) and I am not sorry at all. Alpha Delta Pi is one of the biggest parts of my life. One of the best perks of being in a sorority is all of the awesome clothing. Over the summer, a bunch of girls in my chapter of ADPi ordered spirit jerseys. These are long sleeved tees in a plain color. Then, on the back, is the name of your sorority and the year it was established. These shirts are just so comfortable and look super cute with jeans or yoga pants (of course my tired self is rocking the spirit jersey with Victoria Secret PINK yogas). For any other sorority girl who doesn’t have a spirit jersey, I recommend checking into getting them ASAP. 

I don’t have a photo of mine, so I am searching on Google an Alpha Delta Pi spirit jersey – my school’s chapter got our spirit jerseys in yellow.

I saved the best news for last, readers! I have been selected to attend the ACP/CMA National College Media Convention in October!!!! Words can’t describe how excited I am to attend the conference in New Orleans. Yes, New Orleans! As a Jersey girl, I never would have expected to ever travel to New Orleans. So for me, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I attended the CMA conference this past spring in New York City, but I am much more excited to travel to a new state and experience the surrounding culture. At the same time, I’ll be learning all about my passion, journalism! The conference is a little over a month away, but I am already counting down the days!  But for me – it continues to get even better! Yesterday, I was checking out all of the workshops and keynote speakers when my mouth dropped. My journalist idol, Hoda Kotb, will be one of the guest speakers. I’m sure my screams could be heard all the way in New Orleans from my Connecticut school. Hoda Kotb, one of the morning anchors from “The Today Show,” is my favorite anchor and one of my journalism idols. I aspire to have a career like hers – even ending with being an anchor on “The Today Show.” I can’t describe how excited I am for this opportunity!


So now time for my much needed nap before continuing on with the rest of my day. I couldn’t leave you all hanging without hearing what’s been going on in my life.

And if you any of you happen to be attending the National College Media Convention – shoot me a comment below!

Enjoy your week, readers! Don’t stress and keep smiling!
