BOOK REVIEW: The Other Boleyn Girl By Philippa Gregory

Poor Mary Boleyn. That’s all I could think as I read The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. Being a major history nerd and an even bigger Henry VIII nerd, my mom recommended this book to me to feed into both obsessions. She is a staunch Philippa Gregory fan and raves about her historical fiction […]

BOOK REVIEW: Fangirl By Rainbow Rowell

I love Young Adult novels. There, I said it. I’m 20 years old and I feel giddy when I read about simplistic relationship standards. Maybe it’s the mixture of realistic and unrealistic that keeps me enchanted, or the simple language that lets me get lost in 114 pages in one hour, but Fangirl by Rainbow […]

Book Review: White Oleander By Janet Fitch

For months, my mom had been telling me to read White Oleander by Janet Fitch, and for months, I had been putting it off. My list of to-read books is too long for my preference, but it’s also inconvenient that I’m a college student who has virtually no time to read (hence, why my New […]

Ivanka Trump is not for the people

Before her father’s historical takeover of the White House, Ivanka Trump was known somewhat as a beauty icon. The kind of beauty icon that attracts her father’s praise in March of 2006 when he infamously – and creepily – stated that: “…if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” This is how Ivanka […]

Iced Pumpkin Caramel Macchiato

Everyone is familiar with Starbucks’ fifth-best iced coffee drink, the Caramel Macchiato. It’s rated fifth on 1912pike.com, but I rate it first in my heart. Being a latté kind of girl, this says a lot about me. There is something about the caramel, vanilla, milk and coffee blend that go so well together and force […]

Tips For Being More Organized

If you walked into my bedroom right now, there would be clothes all over the floor, water glasses on every surface, and three different types of cookie packages on my desk. Messiness is a part of my life, but disorganization is not. There may be cookies on my desk, but my wall planner above it […]

Book Review: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

For the longest time, one of my best friends kept badgering me to read One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. She ranted and raved about how amazing the book is and since it’s a literary classic, I decided to give it a try. I’m really intrigued by mental asylums and people with […]

Everything revolves around social media and each app takes its own time dominating the market and capturing the interest of consumers. I am a person who gets bored […]

A boy, a guitar and a raspy voice: all three combined to capture England’s heart in 2012 and is slowly grabbing hold of America’s. Lewis Watson, the owner of these three things, captivated many with his painfully talented YouTube videos he began to upload to his channel in 2010. His voice stood out, being described […]
