Guess whose back….tell a friend!
Well, it’s not Eminem, readers – it’s me!
Now that recruitment is over and I have 49 beautiful new sisters, I’m able to get back down into the wonderful word of blogging!
I’ve missed blogging so much recently and was reminded about how much I love it during a recent trip out with my best friend.
After breaking my iPhone (whoops), my best friend and I went to the local Apple store to get it fixed. While out, we decided to get Shake Shack and skip the usual cafe food. While ordering, I was asked if I was Sami from “Sparkle and Shine” – I was so surprised!
Julia and I both starred with our mouths dropped. I felt like a mini celebrity; like Paris Hilton before the “Simple Life” gig or Bieber before the YouTube discovery. It turned out to be Emma from The World According to Emma, another college blogger. It was by far one of the coolest moments of my life!
Besides being a mini-celebrity, I’ve been super busy.
I’ve been working on my broadcasting skills. This past week I was the entertainment anchor for my school’s TV station, Q30, and did a package for one of our entertainment segments, #That. Check them out –
Plus, I’ve been getting down and derby with my sisters.
As an Executive Board Member of my sorority, I plan events for our sisters. This past weekend, I executed our first ever Bowties and ADPis event, a Kentucky Derby themed Grab-a-Date on our quad. Sisters and their dates dressed in their floppiest hats and brightest bowties and spent the day playing croquet and other yard games. I brought my best friend, Ben, because there is no one I know who is willing to get fratty and dress preppy! Here’s one of the many pictures of us-
But readers, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to finally be back!
Recruitment is over and I am finally back into my blogging groove. I have so many posts planned, so get set…get ready…because Sparkle and Shine is about to really shine.
But, make sure you shine, too, readers! Have a great week and keep sparkling!
Happy Monday, everybody!
As I’m typing this, I’m not in the usual comfort of my dorm bed- but instead my bed at home. This weekend, my injured knee randomly gave out – and now I’m back on bed rest because I strained an already sprained MCL. However, everything happens for a reason and I’m trying to make the best of it (and of course, blogging is making me happy!)
Last week, I was just so busy with recruitment (We welcomed home 54 beautiful Alphas to my school’s chapter of Alpha Delta Pi), I didn’t get time to post about My Monday Musts! So I apologize readers, but hey, the Theta Theta chapter of Alpha Delta Pi is looking as awesome as ever! :
And while I post this week’s Monday Musts, I have to tell you all: I have celebrity life on the brain. This weekend, my school hosted a country concert – where I got to meet Love & Theft and Caanon Smith! It was seriously one of the greatest moments of my life. I’m not going to go into too much detail about that yet, because “Sparkle and Shine” post about the concert will be coming up this week (stay tuned!). But I will give you a little sneak peak by seeing the selfies of me with Love & Theft (say hey to my friends Kelly and Amber who are also in the picture!):
but as I move on from there, because I don’t want to give away too much detail, I figured I would share three other celebrities fixes I have been loving on this Monday:
1. Hayden Panettiere
Hayden Panettiere has recently been speaking out about being a role model for girls regarding their body. While reading how she wants to express to other girls about being proud of their bodies and how she wants to represent normal gives just made me so happy. So many females in today’s society look up to stick thin models and aspire to look like something they can never be without taking drastic measures. Kudos to Hayden for representing the everyday girl and for reminding us all to be proud of who we are!
2. Miley Cyrus
The ex – Disney Channel starlette may be twerking any chance she gets, but the Hannah Montana star will always have a place in my heart. No teenage girl can deny that she didn’t look up to Miley at some point in her life. Though she may be changing from the once long-haired Disney sweetheart, I am still intrigued by her, her life, and what goes through her mind anymore (though the selfies and crazy tweets can get me pretty close). This is why I am just SO, SO, SO excited that this Wednesday, October 2nd, an MTV documentary entitled Miley: The Movement will air.
3. Demi Lovato
Ever since I read the Demi Lovato issue of Cosmo this summer, I have absolutely loved her. If any celebrity can talk about getting through bad days, it is the “Heart Attack” singer. USA Today has announced that Demi is releasing a two part book deal. First, a book compiled of inspiration tweets, and then a memoir. I love reading and celebrity books are my guilty pleasure (the Kardashian ones are always the best!). To read about the struggle that Demi has gone through, where she has gone, and where she is now sounds like it will make a great book. I can’t wait to read the memoir of the strongest girl in Hollywood!
That sums it all up, readers! Enjoy the rest of your week and stay tuned in this week to “Sparkle and Shine” to read about the time I met Love & Theft and Caanon Smith, with tons of pics!
And if you have any bad days this week, remember what I am telling myself – everything happens for a reason!
