Our Favorites September

Whew, the end of September is almost here! That means we are almost through the first semester of the new school year! Let’s all take a moment to high-five each other for working hard and being awesome!

The end of September also means…it’s officially FALL! Well…just barely, but we’ll take it! We absolutely love fall. Bring on the chill!

What was that? Why is the end of September so great, you ask? (Someone did ask that, right?) The end of September is my (Gabriella’s) BIRTHDAY!! Shout out to all the other September birthdays! Happy birthday to us!
Lots of love,

Now, onto our favs.


Veronica’s Fav Survival: School Survival Guide. I love how Meredith shares her study tips. You can tell she is using these tips, too. Her YouTube channel is all about being confident and loving who you are. Go check it out.

Gabriella’s Fav Day: My birthday! I mean, this one kinda explains itself. My favorite day (of September) is my birthday!


Veronica’s Fav DIY: Tie-Dye Notebooks. The DIY Craft Zone’s video tutorial will show you how to take your notebooks from drab to fab. I can hear your notebooks screaming from your backpack right now… “Help us, help us, we are so plain! Give us some pizzazz!” Yes, they use words like pizzazz.


Gabriella’s Fav Sweet: The Ultimate Waffle Sundae. Every B-day needs a sweet treat. I am a weirdo who doesn’t like cake, but I love ice cream (and waffles). This is perfect!

Have a great weekend! This weekend is my birthday, so I know I will!

What is your favorite birthday treat?

Dear Hope Update: Netflix and Chill

DEAR HOPE UPDATE:Netflix and Chill Update

Remember Kate? Check out her original question. She asked for help on how to handle a guy that wanted to Netflix and Chill. She was interested in hanging out, not hooking up.

How did it work out? Read her update below.

Dear Hope,
It’s me Kate, I wrote and asked you about a guy I liked. He asked me to Netflix and Chill and I wasn’t into that. I told him no and asked him to go to a movie instead like you said. He said yes, he also said he was glad because he didn’t want to do it either. He just felt like I would expect that, because everyone does it. When we went to the movie it was awkward at first, but still fun. We really started texting a lot after that and we started hanging out more. We have been together ever since. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I could have made a huge mistake and he didn’t want that either. I’m so glad I asked you first.
– Kate

Dear Kate,

Great news! I’m so happy to hear from you. You should be proud of yourself. You stuck to what you believed and it worked out. No one should feel like they need to do something they are not ready for. You even helped give him the opportunity to say he wasn’t ready either.
“Everyone does it” is never the right reason to do anything. Great job Kate!
Thanks for updating us. We all love hearing that everything worked out.
