So I didn’t have anything ready to post today so I’m going to make a really short one about a daily news email that I get that I really like. TheSkimm sends out a newsletter every morning during the week. They summarize important news events in words that make it easy for me to understand. It’s exactly what it sounds like, “skims” of the important things going on that give you the basic rundown and plenty of links to do more research if you feel like it! Their website also has a lot of guides to big events that give you a lot more information than is included in the basic email. As they say they “do the reading for you -across subject lines and party lines- and break it down with fresh editorial content.”

Now, I hate reading the news, I never read it in fact. I don’t watch the news because it makes me sad so honestly, the only way I stay caught up on current events is with this newsletter.

Here’s a link to sign up for it!

I’ve been using this website/newsletter for about two years now, I’ll be honest I kind of suck at reading but now it’s about the only habit I have and stick to. At school I make my coffee and then sit at the kitchen counter reading it every morning before class. It takes about five minutes which is perfect because it fits so nicely into my morning routine. One of my favorite things is when they recommend books to read! I have a lot of books on my TBR thanks to them.

These women really inspire me as entrepreneurs and I love the work that they’re doing to get more people to stay caught up on current events, world news, and other important tidbits.

This company is relatively new and I’ve been following them as they grow and it’s honestly awesome and I highly recommend you guys using the link I’ve shared with you to sign up and start reading this starting Monday morning!

Hope you all have a fantastic day and a wonderful weekend.


As much as I love staying up at night, I think I’ve finally come to realize that I am in fact, a morning person. There’s just something about being up with the sun, watching it rise, it’s absolutely gorgeous. When I’m awake before everyone else and able to take my time to get ready and do my own thing I feel like I start my day off right.

I usually make a cup of coffee first thing when I get up and then I get ready. A lot of times I will try to tell myself that I’ll do homework in the morning (on weekdays) but I usually end up reading a “fun” book instead. Right now I’m readingĀ This Star Won’t Go OutĀ by Esther Earl.

There are a lot of reasons why I love mornings but here are my top ten:

1. Watching the sun rise

2. Fresh coffee


3. Reading a fun book with aforementioned coffee


4. Breakfast food


5. Reading TheSkimm, I’m not a big fan of watching the news, or reading regular news, but this weekday email news update is really helpful on keeping me up on current events. They explain everything in terms that make sense to me and I love it! Sign up here ( if you want to check it out!


6. Fresh air, anyone else agree that the air just seems cleaner in the morning? Totally not true, but I guess because it’s cooler I let myself believe it?


7. Quiet

8. When your bed is the perfect temperature to snuggle down in

9. That wonderful feeling of productivity you get when you look at the clock at see that it’s 9 AM and you’ve already accomplished half your to-do list

10. I’m putting sunrises again just so I can put another picture of a sunrise in here!


So what about you guys? Are you morning people? Or night owls? I still feel like I’m kind of in between but I really do appreciate my mornings.

Have a great day everyone!
