Step Into My Week: Theater, Ponce City Market, & Upbeet

This week was a super busy week. My school's first quarter was wrapping up, so we had midterms. It's crazy to think about how many tests, projects, and papers I had due. I'm glad that this week will have less major assignments to turn in.

I'd been craving a salad all week. I'm not a salad lover by nature, but I wanted a salad. Upbeet is this trendy salad restaurant in Atlanta that's so good. They prep all the ingredients in a room that's like a fridge. It's a super cool idea. I can't remember the exact name of the salad I got, but it was the vegan one. I love their tofu. It's cooked in a way that makes it so good.
The other night I went to Ponce City Market. It has this restaurant that makes the best bao buns. I haven't seen any other vegan bao buns. The mushroom bulgogi is so good. To complete our trip, I got a popsicle from King of Pops. The raspberry lime one is my favorite.

This weekend was a busy one for theater. We had practice in order to help us get ready for the play. The play's coming together really nicely, so I'm getting excited to see it. The costumes are so cool. I'm particularly in love with the ensembles costume. They're so cool.

My sister helped me with a secret project I'm working on. We took a bunch of pictures in a few outfits. I didn't realize my sister was so talented at photography.

What I Got My Little // Sorority Big/Little

What I Got My BBYO Little
I've been crazy busy these past few weeks. I've had so much work to do. Now, that midterms are finally over I can finally dedicate some time to blogging. I'm excited to get back into the swing of things.

The biggest thing to happen in the last month has been getting a little! In BBYO, we have big/little. A big is someone who's older and a little is someone who's a new member. It's one of the most exciting parts of BBYO. Big/little is similar to big/little in sororities. We have bonding time, texts, reveal, and lots of gifts.

I was super lucky to get two adorable littles! I'm so stoked for them to go on their BBYO journey. They're going to love BBYO with all their hearts.

Big/Little Poster Rachel
I made them each a poster with all their favorite candy on it. They turned out amazing and both of them were obsessed with the poster. My sister actually wrote the posters, since her handwriting is so much prettier than mine.
Big/Little Picture Frame
I made sure to take a ton of pictures with my littles on the night of reveal for each of us to have a keepsake from the night. I really loved how the frames turned out. I chose purple because it's Atlanta Council's color.

I'm seriously in love with this t-shirt. I wanted to go to Walmart to find their whacky t-shirts for us to match, but the Walmart near me doesn't sell wacky t shirts. :( I ended up finding these on Amazon, so they we're a little more expensive.
Big/Little Gift
I didn't get a picture of giant containers I got them. They can keep BBYO memorabilia and t-shirts in the buckets. We decorated the containers with some markers I found.

I'm so happy with how big/little reveal turned out. I definitely have the cutest littles. I'm so excited for them to completely fall in love with BBYO.

Septmeber Lust List

September Lust List

This lust list is a really special one. I was able to use my Wacom tablet to make it. The lettering on it is from the tablet. How cool? My sister has the prettiest handwriting, so I asked her to write September Lust List. After seeing how amazing the blog post looked, I asked her to make a logo. I love how it turned out. Be on the lookout for more handwriting in blog posts.

I'm absolutely obsessed with the gold wedges from Free People. They're made from vegan leather, so that's making me really happy. The shoe looks like it has a lot of support, which is amazing because wedges normally hurt my feet from their little support.

I never know what to do with my phone when I have leggings on. I can't put it into a pocket. Well, I found the answer. Lululemon makes leggings with a side pocket. It's the perfect spot to store my phone and some cash. I definitely want them.

I'm in love with espadrilles. I love how they can look fancy and casual depending on their style. These espadrilles look perfect for everyday wear. I also love how they add a little bit of height. They'll help a short girl out to not stand out in a crowd. Well, it's more like not get lost in a crowd.

All the finds this month are so cute. I really want to order the leggings to use whenever I go on a run in the neighborhood. The star set would be so cute for a night out. I'm madly in love with stripes, so I completely adore both the striped tops. What have you been loving this month?

Step Into My Week: MIT Intake, Big/Lil Reveal, & Confirmation Retreat

This past week was such a fun week. I had a lot of BBYO stuff and a few sleepovers. I'm so excited about where this school year is going. I've been loving every activity I'm doing.

My chapter had our MIT intake last weekend. MIT Intake is where freshman learn more about BBYO and get their big sisters. We played a hilarious game where we had to guess random facts about people in our chapter. It was super funny. My littles are cutest girls. I'm so excited about all the MITS. My friends' littles are all amazing. I even found someone whose vegan in my chapter. This year's going to be so amazing.

I'm in confirmation this year. So far, I've been really enjoying the classes. It's so cool to hear people's different opinions on Judaism. It really helps show me parts I wouldn't think about in different ways. Anyways, we had a retreat. I mainly hung out with people I already knew, but I did make a few more friends. We went to an escape room. I had never been to one before, so I had a complete blast. I definitely want to go back and do another one.

That's it for this week. Hopefully, I can get the Step Into My Week post published on next Monday. You'll have to check back soon to see.

Step Into My Week: BBYO, Lantern Parade & Gilmore Girls

Last week I had a cold that left me wanting to do nothing. Luckily, I was able to make time for some fun too. I'm back to feeling better which is pretty great. It's crazy to think we're a month into the school year. Wow, time is going by so fast.

My BBYO chapter had a Shabbat with another chapter. It was super cute. I got to see my friends in the other chapter which was great. We made really cute bracelets.

I went to the Beltline Lantern Parade. The lanterns were absolutely beautiful. So many people had clearly put in tons of time to make their stunning creations. I definitely want to participate next year. I'm pretty sure the Beltline has classes on how to make a lantern. I'll have to take a class.

My friend, Revell, and I went to see a play on Saturday night. The play was really good. I love supporting other schools' productions. It's really cool to see how different their performances are from my school's.

After the play, Revell slept over. We attempted to have a Gilmore Girls revival marathon, but we only got through the first episode. The part we saw was really good. I'm excited to finish watching the series.
