Desk Accessories We Love!



1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |

Looking for a workspace reup?! Whether for school or work, your desk should be a comfortable place to do your work from. It should be filled with the essentials while at the same time speaking to your aesthetic interests. One of the best ways we love to feel right at home is by adding a flower or plant to our desk. It makes the desk feel less stuffy and more open. Succulents are our favorite type of desk plant! Your desk should also have the most accessible tools to help with your every day tasks, therefore having a trendy notebook available is a must. Per usual, Kate Spade offers the cutest notebooks to allow you to take notes in style. Shop the rest of our favorites above!

Get LIT!


If you follow Beyonce's stylist, @Tytryone or Kim Kardashian, then you have probably been hearing the term "TYLITE" or "LIT". Well, it's probably not what you think! Your selfie game is about to be changed with these amazing new products that light up your phone to provide you with the best lighting for the perfect selfie. Hilary Clinton got to try it out and she was obsessed! One is called "Ty-Lite" and the other is made by Lumee. Each are cases that you put on your phone that light up, basically. When it comes to the Lumee, we love how you can adjust the lighting to make it dim. For both the Ty-Lite and Lumee case, we also love how it protects your phone much like any other phone case.

Get your hands on one of those bad boys and send us a selfie with the hashtag #TSSLIT for a possible Instagram feature!

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers


[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Honestly, sometimes your stocking stuffers are what you look forward to more than your actual presents under the Christmas tree! Growing up our stockings were always filled with candy, but as time as gone by, we have noticed this fad in putting mini presents in stockings and we love it! We love this heart printed water bottle along with this funny "You Can't Spin With Us" water bottle...mainly because they're pink, haha! Everyone can use a pair of socks so why not add some fun polka-dotted ones like these one? Shop the rest of our favorites above!

What are some stocking stuffers that you will be stuffing into your loved one's stockings? Share the love by leaving a comment below!

Happy last minute shopping!

Sorority Budget Calculator


Are you thinking about joining a sorority but you can't decide whether or not you can afford it? We totally get it and want to help you out! We created a Budget Calculator for you that can allow you to see how much you're spending month in and month out. You can factor in how much your sorority dues will be and how that adds up against your other expenses. You can use this calculator to help you stay on track with your expenses. One thing that we do know is that sororities are always willing to work with you so sit with your advisors to come up with a payment plan that works for you. Paying for your sorority dues is super important because it funds all of the activities that help sustain your sorority which include sisterhood events, philanthropies, date parties, and much more! Our Sorority Girl's Budget Calculator is free to use so be sure to download it once you open it up and share it with your sisters, friends, and any one interested in joining a sorority.

Why Sorority Girls Love Periscope


So, we just caught wind of Periscope and can't believe we hadn't heard of it before. For those of you who are not familiar, Periscope is an app that allows you to actually hear the views and thoughts of your favorite profiles live. So think video like YouTube, but LIVE! It's the perfect avenue for us sorority girls and other women and men for that matter to speak our minds freely and actually get live feedback. If you like what someone is speaking about, you can give them a heart. The more hearts you get, the higher they flutter on the screen...we love! Periscope is literally the newest app craze and if you want to be Periscope famous then you should probably jump on the bandwagon. Lucky for you it's available on both iTunes Apple Store and through Google Play for you Android users!

Are you already on Periscope? Send us your username in the comment's section below!

The 'Way of Life' App


We are all about breaking habits and setting goals! With school fast approaching for many of you or the dreaded realization that NYE is around the corner and you haven't made due with your resolutions, we have found an app that we think would be beneficial for you. This amazing app is called the 'Way of Life' app and its goal is to help break habits and commit to goals by literally tracking your progress. You can view your tracked goals in a weekly and monthly manner with the pro version. On your phone you can set reminders and receive notifications daily associated with your goals. It is a great app if you have an extra couple of dollars to aid in keeping you on track for your personal and professional goals. If you want to attend more sisterhoods with your sorority sisters, exercise more, read more insightful books and the list goes on, we recommend this app to keep yourself more accountable!

Kicks For A Cause: Why We Love Inkkas!


Have you heard of Inkkas? Co Founder, Karen, has been rocking these unique looking shoes and we are kind of obsessed with them. The patterns are eccentric and the shoes are really, really comfortable. The background story on Inkkas is surrounded around conscious commerce. When Inkkas was founded, the company set out to be an organization that was about more than simply making a profit. The company established itself on the principles of fair trade, authenticity and social consciousness. Due to the growing danger of deforestation, the Inkkas company decided to make a difference in the world by creating the OneShoeOneTree project. They plant a tree for every product they sell. Pretty amazing!

Throwback Thursday: 90s Shows Every Sorority Girl Loved!


You guys, we want the 90s back!

Sigh.

The 90s were full of the movie Clueless on repeat, Nintendo 64 games, our beloved Skip-Its, and Lisa Frank. But, best of all were all of the TV shows we had our eyes glued to. Since it's Throwback Thursday, let's walk down memory lane with our favorite 90s TV Shows.
  • Clarissa Explains It All: Could her young, easy yet drama-filled life be anymore enviable? We loved feeling like we were having one-on-one convos with her when she would "freeze time" and talk directly to the camera.
  • Saved By the Bell: Speaking of talking directly to the camera, that happened a lot from Zach Morris. Can we say major crush? We loved watching Zach Morris, Kelly Kapowski, Skreech and all of their friends navigate through high school life.
  • The Fresh Prince of Bel Air: This is a story all about how our lives got flip-turned upside down and we'd liked to take a minute and sit right there and tell you how we MISS The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
  • The Adventures of Alex Mack: It's not every day you see a girl disappear by morphing into liquid {lol}.
  • Sweet Valley High: Please tell us you read the books growing up. We are singing the theme song now-" Sweet Valley, hiiiiiigggh, hiiigggh, higggh, higgghhhh"
  • Power Rangers: Raise your hand if you were the Pink or Yellow Ranger (sitting on your couch, of course).
  • Growing Pains: Can we talk about how Alan Thicke hasn't aged since this awesome show?
  • The Babysitter's Club: This was another book series we were absolutely OBSESSED with. We felt like we could really relate to all of the young girls and their different life experiences.
  • Rugrats: Yes, we loved cartoons too! Angelica Pickles and her friend Suzie were quite the divas. Of course, we can't forget the troublemakers Tommy and Chuckie!
  • Martin: Pure comedy. Till this day no show has made us laugh more.
  • Friends: Whenever we hear that opening theme song "I'll be there for youuuuu" it just gives us chills. Seriously Top 5 best TV shows of all time.
  • All That: This was when Amanda Bynes was funny/cuckoo and she wasn't serious!
  • Boy Meets World: Two words: Corey & Topanga (<3)
Wow, that was so much fun walking down memory lane! We know we are missing a ton of shows. What 90s shows did you love? Share with us in the comments below!

Summer Florals We Love





Is it just us or have you been seeing a lot of floral prints in summer fashion? We are kind of loving it! Our wardrobe instantly lights up with every perfect little floral perfection. The designer, She Inside, is giving us so much life with this gorgeous floral flare dress and it's under $40 {fashion steal!}. Have you heard of the designer Show Pony? Well, you won't forget about them when you see how amazing this cute maxi floral dress is. Not to mention it's under $45! We think you know how we feel about Sabo Skirt and their to die for fashion pieces so this crop top, maxi skirt combo definitely made the list of our top favorite floral fashion pieces. If you feel like splurging (and we REALLY mean splurging with this one) Jimmy Choo has the absolute most fabulous leather python floral heels. We drooled a little when we spotted it. If it helps, they're currently on sale! But, there is nothing like giving back with your floral shopping purchases and that can be done with Inkkas super cute shoes. For every shoe purchased from Inkkas they plant a tree. Co Founder, Karen, got her hands on the Flora African Jogger shoes and she said they're incredibly comfortable and that people have been stopping her asking her where they can get their hands on those shoes. Nothing like stopping traffic with your floral fashion pieces!

Where are some of your favorite places to shop for floral fashion pieces? Share with us in the comments below!
