It's that time of year again. The basic white girls have been quiet for long enough as they've been preparing for their favorite time. They just CAN'T EVEN. So what makes Fall so special for these girls? What makes this season the most basic of them all?

1. Pumpkin spice lattes

Do you love Fall if you don't have a PSL in your hand?

2. Anything pumpkin spice for that matter

It's time to live and breathe pumpkin spice everything. Whether it is Jell-O, Oreo's, or Cheerios, you better go all out in honor of the season.

3. Football

Nothing goes better with your infinite scarf and leggings than Football season!

4. Pillsbury cookies

I have yet to figure out what it is about these little cookies that makes it so easy to eat the entire box.


5. Fall Decorations

You don't love Fall unless you prove your admiration to everyone who walks through your apartment door. I'm talking place mats, pumpkins, candles, fake Fall leaves, pillows, plates, etc.


6. Expressing how close Christmas is

September means Fall. Fall means Halloween. Halloween means we're close to Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving means it's November. November means it's almost December. December means Christmas. It's 100 percent acceptable to start spreading the holiday cheer.


7. Bath and Body Fall scents

So if you use a different Fall scent for your shower gel, sugar scrub, body cream, body lotion, and fragrance mist, you can try almost all of the new Bath and Body works scents for the season by next week. Sounds great.

8. Basic Halloween costumes

We all better start looking for costumes now before all of the Harley Quinn, Devil, Bae Watch, Purge, kitty, and nerd costumes are already taken. Sexy Bert and Ernie? Who would have known.

9. Pumpkin patch pictures

Will you even buy a pumpkin? Probably not. If you do buy one, will you have any intent of actually carving it? Probably not. Regardless, the perfect pumpkin patch picture paired with a clever Instagram caption really shows off your excitement for the season.


10. Fall candles

I'm not really sure what a "Crisp Morning Air" or a "Perfect Autumn Day" candle is supposed to smell like, but put me down for three of each! If it's from Yankee Candle or Bath and Body Works, it has to be amazing, right?

11. Booties

They can be worn at any time of the year, but wearing them in the Fall just makes them that much better.

12. Leggings

Leggings are pants, I don't care what you say.

13. Sweaters

Nothing better than an oversized sweater that masks that post pumpkin pie food baby.

14. Flannels

A flannel and brown riding boots? It's a dream come true.

15. Uggs

Every color. Every height. They are essential.

16. Bonfires

Your hair smells like an ashtray, your marshmallow caught fire and fell into the pit, the smoke made your eyes water, and you sweat off all of your bronzer, but yeah it was a great time to take pictures then go back inside.

17. Incorporating the word "fall" as a pun for Instagram captions

Regardless of whether you upload a picture in a pumpkin patch or in a field of leaves, your followers STILL might not understand that it is Fall. Better remind them with a good pun.

18. Comfort food

Mmmm, Halloween Candy, Thanksgiving turkey. You're 10 pounds heavier, but 10 pounds happier.

19. No shave November

It's the season of jeans and leggings. Shaving isn't THAT necessary, is it?

20. Cuffing season

Cuddle weather is here! The mistletoe is being hung and you're thinking about buying Christmas gifts. Better settle down for the season.

21. Black Friday Shopping

After convincing everyone via social media that you are SO thankful for everything in your life, it's time to spend hundreds of dollars on things you don't need.

21. Baking

After spending the past few months ordering takeout and pizza, you suddenly discover your long lost talent of baking. Bring on the pies, cakes and cookies.

22. Thanksgiving

Mashed potatoes, turkey, and rolls, oh my! (just don't forget to Snapchat your food before digging in)

23. Dying your hair to a warmer color

If you didn't know that changing your hair color according to the season was a thing, now you do. Step aside blondies, it's time for some darker tones.

24. And matching the color of your nails to go with it

There's no room for bright pinks and purples. Nails must be browns, dark purples, etc. from now on.

25. Northface jackets

The Fall breeze can't stop you when you're wearing one of these.

When You Give A Girl A Dad

You give her everything
76595
views

They say that any male can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad. That dads are just the people that created the child, so to speak, but rather, dads raise their children to be the best they can be. Further, when you give a little girl a dad, you give her much more than a father; you give her the world in one man.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a rock.

Life is tough, and life is constantly changing directions and route. In a world that's never not moving, a girl needs something stable. She needs something that won't let her be alone; someone that's going to be there when life is going great, and someone who is going to be there for her when life is everything but ideal. Dads don't give up on this daughters, they never will.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a role model.

If we never had someone to look up to, we would never have someone to strive to be. When you give a little girl someone to look up to, you give her someone to be. We copy their mannerisms, we copy their habits, and we copy their work ethic. Little girls need someone to show them the world, so that they can create their own.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her the first boy she will ever love.

And I'm not really sure someone will ever be better than him either. He's the first guy to take your heart, and every person you love after him is just a comparison to his endless, unmatchable love. He shows you your worth, and he shows you what your should be treated like: a princess.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her someone to make proud.

After every softball game, soccer tournament, cheerleading competition, etc., you can find every little girl looking up to their dads for their approval. Later in life, they look to their dad with their grades, internships, and little accomplishments. Dads are the reason we try so hard to be the best we can be. Dads raised us to be the very best at whatever we chose to do, and they were there to support you through everything. They are the hardest critics, but they are always your biggest fans.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a credit card.

It's completely true. Dads are the reason we have the things we have, thank the Lord. He's the best to shop with too, since he usually remains outside the store the entire time till he is summoned in to forge the bill. All seriousness, they always give their little girls more than they give themselves, and that's something we love so much about you.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a shoulder to cry on.

When you fell down and cut yourself, your mom looked at you and told you to suck it up. But your dad, on the other hand, got down on the ground with you, and he let you cry. Then later on, when you made a mistake, or broke up with a boy, or just got sad, he was there to dry your tears and tell you everything was going to be okay, especially when you thought the world was crashing down. He will always be there to tell you everything is going to be okay, even when they don't know if everything is going to be okay. That's his job.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a lifelong best friend.

My dad was my first best friend, and he will be my last. He's stood by me when times got tough, he carried me when I just couldn't do it anymore, and he yelled at me when I deserved it; but the one thing he has never done was give up on me. He will always be the first person I tell good news to, and the last person I ever want to disappoint. He's everything I could ever want in a best friend and more.


Dads are something out of a fairytale. They are your prince charming, your knight in shinny amour, and your fairy godfather. Dads are the reasons we are the people we are today; something that a million "thank you"' will never be enough for.

Keep Your Wellbeing On Track This Summer With These 5 Health Hacks

Don't waste your time off, use it!

290

Summertime is here, and for many of us, these three months of vacation mean more room for slacking off with our usual health routines. Between sleeping in through the morning gym alarm, and consuming too many tempting party foods and drinks, it is easy to fall into a euphoria of laziness and lose health as a top priority.

Here's the good news — believe it or not, summer is actually the easiest time of the year to get and stay in killer shape because of all of the extra time you have!

Here are some tips and tricks to get you started.

1. Try using the five-to-two rule.

It's easy to forget the difference between weekdays and weekends during summer when every day feels the same. But sometimes it is actually helpful to be aware of what day of the week it is. Just like you would do in school, try to stay on track during weekdays. Wake up at a reasonable time, exercise, find ways to be productive throughout the day, and be conscious of eating healthy. This way when the weekend rolls around, if you choose to indulge in sleeping in, or going out and having a few extra drinks, it's more acceptable than choosing to do so every single night. You will feel more in control, and trust me, your body will thank you for the moderation.

2. Skip the junk food and embrace the fresh seasonal produce.

Summer is the season where all of the nutrient-dense fruits and veggies are in their prime season. Take advantage of this! Skip the fast food, and try cooking since you now cannot use the excuse that you don't have time! Go to the grocery to stock up on fresh produce. There is nothing better than homemade, healthy food, and with so much time on your hands why not try some fun new recipes? Cooking is actually really enjoyable and rewarding. Here are some of my favorite healthy summertime recipes that keep my body feeling fresh and energized.

Healthy green smoothie

Quinoa Salad

Chia Pudding

Salmon and Apple Kale Salad

3. If you're tired of the gym, try alternative forms of exercise. 

Whether it is hiking, kayaking, swimming, or playing a family game of kickball, summer presents you with many more fun active opportunities than the colder, rainier months of the year. Take advantage of that if you are getting bored or unmotivated sitting in a stuffy gym.

4. Build a new routine.

During the school year, we all fall into a fairly consistent routine. We have classes at the same time every week, we have responsibilities, deadlines, and all of those other things that may seem pesky but actually, serve in giving our lives some major structure. For many of us, that structure is much needed. When summer arrives and suddenly we don't have those obligations calling us to get up and be productive, we fall into a slump of doing nothing. That's when it is helpful to set a new routine. Our bodies like routine and regularity and the best part about a summer routine is that you set it how you like it.

How do I build a new routine? Decide on a general bed and wake up time, at least for weekdays. Choose which days of the week you will exercise and stick to them! Plan out your week at the beginning of the week. I like to keep a weekly calendar. Before the week begins I write down all of the things I would like to get done that week and place them on the days I plan to do them. You can even write down your plans with friends or social events.

5.. In general, spend time outside.

Did you know that spending time in the sunshine and fresh air actually has an impact on your health? Nature can boost our moods, make us feel more energized and productive. And everyone knows that a healthy mindset leads to a healthier life. The great thing about summer is that we have endless opportunities to be outside because of the close weather. You can really take almost any activity you want and move it outside. Even as I sit here writing this blog I am sitting outside on our beautiful porch looking out over a lake.
