4 Ways You Know Winter Is Coming

Everyone warned us. They said it would be cold. But who knew it would be this cold, this fast. Being it is my first time experiencing the Ann Arbor winter, I came in prepared, but not knowing how low the temperatures would actually be. Here are 4 things everyone sees around campus that signify that winter is coming.

1. Canada Goose Jacket

You literally cannot walk more than 4 steps without seeing that red logo on the sleeve of legitimately anyone at this school. The fur hood is also a clear give away. You'll definitely see people huddled up in their coat with their hands in their pockets desperately trying to stay warm. Disclaimer: It may be hard to recognize who is under the big fluffy coat and it honestly could be anyone, so good luck trying to figure that out.

2. Timberlands

Although these started out at the ultimate tailgate shoes, they are now essential for surviving a snowy winter in Michigan. Whether you have the regular pair, or the kind that has the fur, I recommend investing in these. They go with any outfit and anyone can wear them. Even though boys tend to think these are the perfect going out shoes, I'm gonna stick to just wearing them in the snow.

3. Hats With the Giant Pom Pom

If you're asking me, I live for hat season. It is genuinely one of my favorite times of the year. I'm sure many of you can agree with me. Maybe it's your favorite blue hate with a yellow block M, or if you're a girl, there's a high possibility it's a regular plain colored hat with a pom pom. You can't walk through the Diag on a cold day without seeing at least 6 of these hats. I would say they are a winter must have, and honestly don't see them ever going out of style.

4. No One Outside or Out of Their Dorms

So if it's really cold, theres a high possibility you don't see any of this. Although I have yet to experience it, I know that this kind of day is coming. The kind of day where it is too cold to get out of bed, out of pajamas, or even leave your dorm. The only exception to getting out of bed is for class, and even then you won't see anyone walking, #uber.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
