Wednesday’s presidential debate spurred several interesting views and opinions, all of which I believe to be relevant and valid. As I scrolled through social media that night, however, it seemed to me that words were being put into each candidate’s mouth, words that were usually untrue and shed ea...

“I need new jeans, but I don't wanna pay 50 dollars for a piece of fabric.” It was a cool fall evening when I muttered these words to one of my dearest friends. Her solution seemed despicable, but once I put on those mom jeans my life changed for the better. Mom jeans can be described as a pair of je...

What’s a blog about Netflix without a Disney movie? Disney movies will forever be classics. A great Disney movie that I feel hasn't been in the light enough is “The Emperor’s New Groove.” “The Emperor’s New Groove” is about a very selfish emperor named Kuzco who doesn’t care about h...

I was taken aback when I looked at the Associated Press top 25 poll for this week. Four teams — No. 2 Ohio State, No. 4 Michigan, No. 8 Wisconsin and No. 10 Nebraska — from the Big Ten Conference are in the top 10 for the first time since 1960. In this era of SEC dominance and overall parity, this a bit of a surprise. Top teams in college football ...

This week for my blog, I was struggling to come up with an idea to write and make a video about. I realized that this far, my blog has been purely clothing related and that has made it difficult for people who are not passionate about style to get interested in what I have to say. So this week I to...

It has been a rainy week for the United States of America, and subconsciously, this water theme has led me to paint the ocean. The hurricanes, tsunamis and rainstorms that have spread themselves across the entire world this week have been nothing less than wild and untamed, so whether I intended to or not...

From Hurricane Matthew  sweeping Florida to our own thunderstorms here in Kansas, storms are looking especially frightening this fall. While we may be used to the noise, dogs of all sizes can feel anxious as a result of loud thunder and heavy hail. Updating yourself on weather predictions is importan...

“Grey’s Anatomy” isn’t just about doctors, it’s about the characters and how much of an impact they make on the audience. To paint a better picture, let’s go back to the night of April 23, 2015. Many girls had put on their snapchat stories, “RIP” or “RIP McDreamy,” some were even in ...

Fall is the transition from summer to winter, hot to cold and even excitement to boredom. During the season, we sometimes find ourselves not knowing how to occupy our time outside of school.
