No Plans for Spring Break? Sprightly’s Got You Covered!

writtenE

It’s that time of year folks, Spring Break is upon us and personally, I could not be more grateful for this week long break that we have been graced with in the middle of our spring semester (although, I do think it could be a little bit longer but I’ll take what I can get).  College students (and post-grads too!) take this time to get some much needed rest and relaxation that our priorities were not letting us achieve in the previous months.

Netflix: the forbidden fruit, an addictive hobby, the root of our comfort.

It has been a long day at work or school, all you want to do is throw on you pajamas, put your legs up and take a moment for yourself. After you have settled in, what is the first thing you do?

A. Eat everything in your fridge and fall into a food coma and doze off.

B. Reply to your emails, text messages, and and clean the house…it’s been a long day but the grind never stops.

C. See how fast you can put on your sweats and switch the television on Netflix, I am a slave to the television! Continue reading “Top 10: Binge-Worthy Netflix Shows”

College: The Final Countdown

writtenL

College… otherwise known as the best years of your life. These four years, give or take, are your golden hours. This is your peak in life, in regards to freedom. Freedom from a nine to five day. Freedom from set school hours. Freedom to eat as many frozen burritos as you like and blame it on the stereotypical “college diet”. You call the shots. As a college student you are finally considered and are treated like a true adult, but you are given leverage because you’re still so young. This is your time to figure out who you truly are, who you want to become, and how you’re going to achieve your dreams. It’s all fun and games until you turn the tassel to the left. The big question we all ask ourselves soon after commencement… “So what now?” Continue reading “College: The Final Countdown”

Social Media Fast

writtenL

I never realized just how much a person depends on social media until I decided to challenge myself this past week. Anyone who knows me knows my phone is practically super glued to my hand. My entire life depends on my phone. No, I’m not being dramatic. It’s true and when I explain why, you might think yours does too. Of course, my obsession with social media can be a bit excessive, but that’s what this generation is; social media has become the portal key to connecting with the rest of the world. Without it, we wouldn’t be as advanced as we’ve become. I’m not talking about how the newest Instagram story update that comes with different fonts can cure cancer. I’m talking about networking.

Sprightly’s Guide to: Love Day

writtenL

This blog post is dedicated to our readers, both single and taken, who will LOVE “Love Day” as much as we do after reading this!

Don’t be a “grumpus” this Valentine’s Day! There’s much to love about Love Day. Leave the stigma of #ForeverAlone back in 2010 where it should stay FOREVER. For those single minglers, you are independent and fabulous. Same goes for those folks who are invested in some sort of commitment to another. We are all fabulous and today is a day about love, NOT romantic relationships. Continue reading “Sprightly’s Guide to: Love Day”

Sprightly’s Guide to: College

writtenL

College. The chapter of our lives we dream about since our elementary school years. It is also the biggest let down of my childhood dreams. College is nothing like it seems in your fantasies and definitely not what it seems in the eyes of Hollywood. Not to put a whole downer on the entire college experience. I truly am going to miss going to school in the clothes I found on my floor on my way out the door. Once I receive my diploma, which is essentially my golden ticket into the big adult world, I will be biding my sweatpants and leggings farewell. Continue reading “Sprightly’s Guide to: College”

Birthday Brainstorm: Happy Birthday, Emily!

writtenL

23 years ago TOMORROW, Sprightly’s co-founder Emily was brought into this world. Though I was not yet even a fetus, I can already tell you she probably came out of where the sun don’t shine laughing instead of crying like all other babies. I say this because Emily isn’t your average woman. Yes, she puts her pants on one leg at a time, she’s not bionic, but she brings a shocking amount of light and positivity into every room she walks into. The day Emily stops smiling is when you know the end of the world is near. When I first met her I thought her happiness was all an act. Being by her side for over a year sure proved me wrong.
