Friday Five

The week after Spring Break is always the toughest. It's even worse when you're getting back from Punta Cana and transitioning back into freezing NYC weather. All I wanted this week was to be back on the beach, it was just severely depressing.

There were multiple things that helped me get through the week and for that I'm grateful!



1. Sprinkles Cupcakes ATM: My social media was blowing up with this news over the past two days. I've seen that Sprinkles had one of these fancy ATMs at their California store but NYC has not been graced with one yet...until now! The ever popular cupcake store made these ATMs famous and they finally opened one at their Manhattan store this week. This means your sugar cravings can be cured at all hours of the day, even when the store is closed.



2. Relay for Life: Iona College is hosting their first Relay for Life on April 12th. All clubs and organizations are participating, including my lovely Phi Sigma Sigma. Me and my sisters are doing our best to raise as much money as possible. Relay for Life is something close to a lot of people because it raises money for cancer, something that affects more people than you think. Because Relay for Life is getting so close, I'm getting really into it and want to raise as much money as possible. Any donation helps , even $1. If you can, please go to my page and help save a life :) 



3. LaurenBergerInc.com: If you didn't know, I'm an InternQueen Campus Ambassador. The InternQueen i Lauren Berger, an incredible woman who has created her brand helping younger, college students score their dream internships. She is the self made queen because she has held over 15 internships so she knows exactly what makes an all star intern. This week she launched her fabulous new website, LaurenBergerInc.com. It's a great resource for all those launching themselves into the real world. I'm kind of obsessed with it. 



4. Birchbox SoHo: It's no secret that I'm obsessed with Birchbox. Not only do I adore beauty products and the entire concept of the subscription service, I think the brand as a whole is doing everything right. The image, the marketing, social media--they are on top of their game.  The lovely Founders and CEOs Katia and Hayley are taking things to the next level. The New York Times published a beautifully written article about the pair this week and their plans to open up the first ever Birchbox store in SoHo, Manhattan this summer! You'll be able to build your own Birchbox and purchase full sized products, instead of ordering online. It sounds like heaven and I cannot wait!

5. 60 Tips That Can Save a Girl's Life: This blog post went viral this week and I'm kind of obsessed with it. Some I was aware of, some were new to me, and others it was nice to be reminded of. I'm going to bookmark this and read it whenever I feel a little down.

What are some of your favorites of the week?
