summer, heck ya!

FASHIONChloe Gordon

Heck ya! Summer is finally here and it’s so hot that I’ve already been through one tube of deodorant. That’s probably too much information to put on the world wide web (sorry future employers), but I’m all about being real. 

Speaking of being real, summer is about to be real(ly) fun. I just found out I got a job as a counselor at a little day camp near my house. It’s going to be awesome because all the other counselors are college aged as well. Heck ya for making friends, am I right? 

But as fun as this summer is going to be — we’re talkin’ no group projects, no homework, no homesickness — it’s going to be a weird one too. I’m going to miss walking to my friend’s dorm rooms in the wee hours of the night just to have dance parties, or snack parties, or to get ready for frat parties. I’m going to miss randomly seeing my friends while walking around campus. I’m going to miss the dining hall (omg, I know, I said it). I’m going to miss not having to take my trash out if I don’t want to. I’m going to miss the college life. 

This summer definitely feels different than any other before. 

It’s weird. 

It’s not bad, it’s just different. 

I’ll be sure to share stories throughout the summer, little check-ins about how I’m doing. 
I’m also planning on posting a lot more often so be ready for PopCosmo to be back in full force, it’s about time ;) 

Thanks for reading! 

20/20 vision

FASHIONChloe Gordon

When I was in second grade all I wanted was a pair of glasses and set of braces. 

Unfortunately — at least seemingly at the time — I had 20/20 vision and perfectly straight teeth. Life was rough. I was jealous of all the “cool” fourth graders who had the killer combo of glasses and braces. 

But, as my mom always said, “be careful what you wish for.” 

While I never had braces, this year, my vision started failing me. I couldn’t see the board and I was constantly squinting and struggling to figure out what things said. It was terrible. 

But I finally was able to live my second grade dream of accessorizing with a pair of stellar glasses. 
My vision might not be 20/20 but my glasses sure are, am I right? Thanks Warby Parker, you’re the bomb. 

best day of my life

FASHIONChloe Gordon

This past Tuesday was the best day of my life. 

At the glorious hour of 11o’clock a.m., I was informed that my math final later in the day was cancelled. 

All because of some snow. 

I found out while in a quiet study room, but didn’t hesitate to scream and dance and tear up when my friend shared the news with me. 

It was seriously the best news I could have ever received in that specific moment in time. Everything was perfect. It was a literal blizzard outside, my math final was cancelled, the hot chocolate in the dining hall was on point, and my friends agreed to having a mini photo shoot outside our dorm. 

I swear I’m at my most creative when I’m avoiding studying. 

That being said, one of my friends took a few cute shots of me so I figured I should share them here. Because nothing says “blogger” like a post filled with narcissistic photos of yourself, am I right?


But not really.

If you're interested in my outfit here are the details:
