Buying Christmas gifts for college students can be a blast, but when you’re not sure what to buy your friends and family, it can also be tricky. Luckily, when shopping for college students, there are a few universal things almost all of them want, need or may appreciate. - Ali in BloomBuying Christmas gifts for college students can be a blast, but when you’re not sure what to buy your friends and family, it can also be tricky.

Five on Friday | Vol. 2

I wrote volume one of Five on Friday back in July 2016, and I honestly loved it. It’s been on my mind ever since. Now more than ever feels like the perfect time to revisit this concept I fell in love with because it’s been a long time since I’ve written a post, let alone written about my life. So, in the spirit of overcoming my blogging rut, let’s talk about where I’ve been — and also where I’m going. I didn’t mean for this to happen, but when I picked out the five biggest things that have been happening in my life since last posting, I realized these five things are also things I really want to focus on and bring to my blog going forward, so if you love this Five on Friday, stick around, because you’ll love what’s coming next.

Oh, and P.S. I couldn’t be happier to be back.
