Top 5 Ways to Boss Your Legal Internship

I first have got to start this article by acknowledging that there is a myriad of legal fields that you can intern in. Over the summer I had an internship in a criminal litigation setting so this is definitely more geared towards that experience- but I think there’s a lot that can spill over in any type of legal internship or any internship at all for that matter. Okay, now that I got that disclaimer out of the way- here are my five tips for killing your legal internship:

Wim Frozen Yogurt: Making Froyo at Home

In high school I used to get frozen yogurt every day after school. It was back in the day when they only served two flavors “original” or chocolate. I LOVED original. It reminded of this placed I tried in New York called Pinkberry and I became totally addicted. Then I moved up to South Bend and there wasn’t a frozen yogurt place until 2012. That’s when frozen yogurt blew up and now pretty much any town you go in America has one- and I love it. Now that I’m older I can’t get frozen yogurt in shops like I used to. First, the normally don’t have the nutritional information readily available and second, you don’t have control over the type of dairy they use. Plus, the toppings are totally tempting. Then I saw the Wim Frozen Yogurt machine. A at home frozen yogurt machine that gives you a serving in 10 minutes. Now if you’re not big into ice cream in general, just skip this article. You’re gonna think I’m 100% crazy for spending my money on this but I don’t need your judgement OKAY. So please, only frozen yogurt addicts proceed.

Ringly Review

I first saw this bracelet two years ago in an article talking about the new fad of wearable tech. To me it seemed like a really interesting idea but at the time it was a little too pricey. Plus the tech wasn’t fully developed and people were complaining on backorder issues. The more I thought about it too, the sillier I thought it was. What’s the point of having a bracelet that tells me when someone texts me when I can just have my phone nearby on vibrate? Seemed like a waste of money to me.

Lancôme's Custom Foundation: Perfection or Nightmare?

As I’ve discussed before, I have a horrible time finding a true match foundation for my skin tone. I’m SUPER pale but am a true neutral (lots of pales lean either very yellow or very cool even though they say neutral) that it makes it just tough enough to find the perfect shade. 

That’s why when Lancôme announced that they would be offering custom foundation called Le Teint Particulier I FLIPPED. I already love Lancôme foundation and I couldn’t think of anything more incredible to happen to me in the realm of makeup. 

I got even more excited when I looked into it and saw that it was quote: "long-wearing, breathable, oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free formula safe for sensitive complexions.” As someone with skin that easily breaks out, this seemed like a god-send foundation. Even better is that it comes without SPF, which is notorious for causing foundation flashback in photos. But where to get it?

McSwim Review: A Kini For YOUR Body

I didn’t think it was possible but someone made the perfect kini and that someone is McSwim. It all started when I saw my gorgeous friend Dani wearing what looked like one of the most adorable swim suits I’d ever seen. I just had to ask her where she got it and she clued me in on McSwim.

Learning to Let My Husband Take Care of Me

This article is coming from an upper middle class, white passing Latina, only child, and extremely well taken care of young lady. So perhaps you find this article to be dumb, un-self-aware, and extremely spoiled- and you would be right! So now that we have gotten that out of the way I’m going to share on my feelings about having someone take care of me who is not my mom or dad but my husband.

Hair Tie Bracelet: Win or Fail?

Ahhh the hair tie on the wrist debacle, one of the most pervasive fashion dilemmas known to women (and guys who wear manbuns). While some have tried making hair ties look cute, ultimately you’re always stuck with some elastic shenanigans on your wrist. It’s not a good look but it tends to be better than going without it.

Function of Beauty Review: The Internet's Haircare Answer

I have got to be honest and say that I expected very little from this product. Like the smallest amount of expectations that is humanly possible. I thought I’d use this and then once my hair dried it would puff up, get tangled, and immediately need to take a second shower. So maybe going in thinking that it would actually have negative consequences made me ENTHRALLED that after I used Function of Beauty my hair dried beautifully and I didn’t even have to blow dry it to make it look done for the day.
