5 Hair Dos And Hair Don'ts

You are better than that bad hair day. Stronger than that tangle. And cuter than every cowlick.

Hair Do: Use Product

Some people say product may damage your hair, but it is a risk we have to take. My favorite product to use is "Garnier Fructis Style Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk" which helps when I have too much volume. There is a thing of too much volume. All my thick hair friends, can I get an amen?

Hair Don't: Overheating

Twelve seconds max. No more, no less. Make sure to use your curlers and straighteners sparingly. Your ends will thank me later. We don't need to see smoke to know its working. No matter how hard it is to curl your hair.

Hair Do: Up Dos Are Always a Yes

Twist, twist, and swirl around. Whenever you are not feeling the day, grab a pony-tail holder and used that technique. Twist your hair, until it starts to roll around itself, then tie the band around it. Everyone has those days. (Yes, I did just have a "Hannah Montana" moment)

Hair Don't: Leaving the hair on the back of your head unstraightened. 

I am sorry. I can't. Straighten your whole head. None of this, "just the front," type of thing. No. Just no.

Get a friend, let them straighten the back. If you pull out that straightener, you keep going. All the way. I am putting my foot down on this.

Hair Do: Volume is a good thing. 

Yes, I said it. Volume is a good thing every once in a while. Even for me, a girl with some thick hair. I get it. We all want that straight edged sword hair like Kim Kardashian, but volume is nice to have. After you straightened your hair, grab some volume powder and pour a little in your roots. Plump up your hair just a little bit for that messy straight look for a night out. Notice I said, "After you straighten your hair." All the way. It will give you volume, and make sure that your pictures on Instagram on perfect.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
