I knew I needed to go to the mall as there was damage that needed to be done. With New York Fashion Week happening in less than a week, I needed to find the best stores in the mall, quickly, so I could start putting together some outfits. I spent about five hours total at the mall in most of the following stores and picked up some cool finds.

1. H&M

Honestly, I try my best to steer away from fast fashion for many reasons. Although, when I am in a major time crunch and need a few small items, I sometimes end up in H&M for trendy, quick finds.

2. Steve Madden

Although Steve Madden primarily sells shoes, they have some very cute bags and accessories throughout the store. I came extremely close to purchasing one of their small backpacks yesterday, as they have simplistic, yet trendy bags—which definitely matches my style.

3. Banana Republic

This is one of those stores that I always find myself peeking into when I go shopping nearly anywhere. Banana Republic carries timeless, simple, yet well-crafted garments that I have found to have a long life-span. This store is great for events where you must look clean and presentable, but want a pop of trendy-fashion.

4. PacSun

If I am being honest, I do not find myself shopping at PacSun much, but I do love the variety of street-wear options they carry. While shopping in the mall yesterday, I went into PacSun with my friend to find that their clothing is becoming more similar to what is sold at Urban Outfitters. Urban Outfitters has announced that they will be coming to the Destiny USA Mall soon though!

5. J. Crew

I love J. Crew. When I first started working at Coach, I remember having a shopping frenzy in this store, obsessed with how clean-cut their styles are. They carry very simple pieces, but most of them are fundamental pieces that we all must have in our wardrobes. I know that I need them.

6. Nordstrom Rack

Nordstrom Rack has always been one of my favorite stores to peek around in. I find myself here at least once a month, and I usually always find something to purchase. They have the best skin care staples for decent prices and sell amazing sportswear. Nordstrom Rack's athletic attire has inspired me to go to the gym numerous times if that tells you anything!

7. Saks Off 5th

As Saks Fifth Avenue is nowhere in sight in Syracuse, NY, it is great to have the discount store nearby. Also, Saks Off 5th has amazing prices! This store is so much fun to shop in, as there are many discounted designer garments, along with chic designer eyewear.

8. Lord & Taylor

After moving to Syracuse, New York for college in 2017, this was the first store I entered to purchase some new outfits. Although this retailer does not always have the best discounts, they have loads of fashion-forward garments that can truly transform your closet.

9. Sephora

I have been going to Sephora for years now, and I am sure it will always be my favorite cosmetic store. The Sephora card is a must if you are shopping here, as it is entirely free, and for every purchase, you get more points towards becoming a Beauty Insider member. This allows you to qualify for weeks of discounts and free shipping. As there are a few other cosmetic stores to shop at, I truly believe that Sephora has the best incentives.

I hope this rundown of my favorite stores in the Destiny USA Mall helps! As a Fashion Design major who values fashion so much, I truly love these stores. Have fun shopping!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
