WHAT I WISH I KNEW AT 16

So, *surprise* today is my 21st birthday. Whenever I turn a new age, I always sit and think about what I was like on my other birthdays. I remember my 12th birthday when all of my friends forgot and I laugh about how I honestly thought it was the end of the world and how…

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR DAY

Let’s be real here: there are not enough hours in a day. Whether you’re a college student, high school student or working full-time (notice how I didn’t say “mom,” moms are another league of awesomeness), no one seems to have enough time. Over the past seven years, I have really learned how to organize my life…

WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that March is Women’s History Month! About a month ago I wrote about what feminism really means. This month on Instagram I’ve been honoring a woman every day who has pioneered not only women but the world further in science, politics, the arts, and more.

YOUR GUIDE TO THE OSCAR’S 2018

Cats out of the bag: I’m a movie buff (thank goodness I’m dating one too). Every year I binge-watch as many Golden Globe and Oscar-nominated films as fast as I can before the Oscar’s. I cry, I laugh, I cringe. This is one of my favorite days of the year! I know not everyone has…

FABFITFUN BOX OPENING

I have always been obsessed with subscription boxes but a college budget does not support such a thing. I usually live vicariously through other people by watching them open them and subscribing to e-mails just to see what I’m missing out on. Recently, my mother has also become obsessed with them. She decided to embark…

Jon and I have only been together a year and a half. Not a super long amount of time, right? Well, that’s 78 times to “Netflix and Chill” IF we only hung out once a week… danger zone. When Jon and I started dating we wanted to set boundaries immediately. We have realized within the…

VOTES FOR WOMEN

So today I decided to deviate slightly from what the “lifestyle” category would typically look like for me. I wanted to discuss one of the most misunderstood but incredibly important movements of this century and centuries before. You guessed it! Today I am going to discuss something that may make you grit your teeth: feminism….

SEVEN WAYS TO A MORE RELAXING EVENING

Before I begin, I just want to start off with why I think having a “relaxing” evening is so important. I have the lovely habit of grinding my teeth in my sleep. Actually, I’ve always had the habit of grinding my teeth. I just didn’t realize it was a problem until within the last year…

WELCOME TO THE NEW BRIEARSENAULT.COM

I just wanted to start off with a HUGE thank you to all of my supportive friends and family who helped make this happen. This has been a silent dream of mine for a few years and I can’t believe that this is finally happening! I wanted to start off with a quick introduction to…
