My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, readers!

For those of you who celebrated Easter, hope you had an amazing holiday. I also hope the Easter Bunny was as good to you as he was to me – he clearly knows me very well, seeing as my basket was filled with Victoria’s Secret, Clinique, peanut butter cups, and a new pair of sneakers. Can’t wait to break them in later at the gym!

Being home for a few days for Easter allowed me to de-stress and prepare myself for the long-haul of the next three weeks of classes, tests, and ultimately – finals week.

My biggest recommendation is make your phone’s lock screen an inspirational quote that you really love to help you power through. I scoured my Pinterest‘s “Words to Live By” board until I found the perfect one. Here it is:

To help you stay calm through your possible stressful week, take a quick break, and check out this week’s Monday Musts –

1. Cookie Dough Iced Coffee from Dunkin Donuts

I spent my Friday home in New Jersey from school getting my nails done and shopping. No day of manicures and shopping would be complete without either a Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks run. So, after hearing rave reviews about Dunkin’s newest iced coffee – Cookie Dough flavored, Julia and I decided to get it. It was DELICIOUS! I’m a recent iced coffee addict and this new flavor from Dunkin was so good. The Baskin Robins inspired flavored coffee is a MUST TRY for any iced coffee addict – so head on over to Dunkin immediately. You won’t regret it!

2. Modern Family

Besides iced coffee, manicures, and shopping, my few days at home for Easter also included vegging out on the couch catching up on some of my favorite television shows, such as “Criminal Minds” and “The Millers.” I’ve heard a lot of positive reviews about the ABC show, especially how funny it is. I decided to watch it – and became HOOKED. Before I knew it, I was watching every episode that was on demand and am now quickly looking into other ways to catch up on all the seasons (if anyone knows – let me know – since it’s not on Netflix). I love all the characters, the family dynamic, how the show is set up, and just everything about it. I hope my future daughter is as sassy as Lilly.

3. The Makeup Show NYC 

Being a member of the Seventeen Social Club as brought so many incredible opportunities (stay tuned for a post from one of the products they sent me this week!). One of the most recent opportunities that I am super excited about is attending The Makeup Show in NYC with my little diamond, Amber, as press. On May 4, Amber and I will be traveling into the City to hear from some of the best in the industry regarding different makeup tips and tricks for all occasions. I’ll be sharing about it on Twitter and Instagram, then doing a blog post all about it.  Words can’t express my excitement or how thankful I am for all the opportunities “Sparkle and Shine” has given me.

Have a great week, readers! Keep sparkling!


My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, readers!

I know this is much later than when I post my Monday Musts, but this week is already super hectic. I had a great weekend and actually got to experience one of the coolest things I have ever experienced! At Quinnipiac’s Saturday night hot spot, Toads, I got to go into the DJ booth for the main dance floor and even got to do some shoutouts on the microphone.

I’ve been up there one time before to wish my best friend, Julia, a happy birthday, but this time I spent most of my night in the DJ booth. It was so cool! If you follow me on Instagram, you can view a video of it here. Of course, I sent out many snapchats – including this embarrassing one that I saved –

Now this weekend, I am going home and I can’t be more excited. My train ticket just came in the mail today (I’m trying this new thing where I am super prepared ahead of time, so I bought the ticket already) and I’m just so excited to go home. Plus, I’ll get to see my family to celebrate my grandparent’s 50th anniversary!

But, before I continue on with essays, memorizing a monologue, and an Alpha Delta Pi event tonight, I want to share with you all this week’s Monday Musts!




Just like life, I’m going to throw a curveball at you. This week was so stressful and hectic for me, I honestly have done nothing but go to the library, do homework, and get through each day that I have nothing to share with you all. Life threw me more than a handful of curveballs this past few weeks, so I’ve been focusing on getting everything in place with my life that I haven’t gotten to do much that can be considered a Monday Musts.

So the only Monday Musts I have is to tell you that you must take your time to relax, focus on yourself, be your own happiness, and get some sleep.  After my crazy week and other events from life, that’s the true Musts I have found to getting through this crazy thing we called life.

Before I sign off this week, if you are stressed this week just like I have been, I just want to share with you an amazing quote one of my sisters shared with the our Executive Board – “It might be the end of their worlds, but don’t let it be the end of yours.”

Enjoy your week, readers! Keep sparkling, no matter what!
