I am a very excitable person and get very passionate about things that I am currently into. With that said, I am very indecisive and can never pick just one thing to love at a time. So, here a few of my favorite college student things this fall:
On Running Shoes
As if the Swiss hadn’t contributed enough to the world with their chocolate, watches and their peaceful neutrality, they have blessed the human population again with their engineering. These On running shoes are the lightest and most comfortable sneakers I have ever worn. I genuinely believe they make me run faster and the sole of the shoe provides a nice bounce.
If you exist on a college campus or in any major city, you have likely seen people sporting these shoes. Allbirds is a new company that claims to make “the worlds most comfortable shoes” from environmentally sustainable materials. My whole family got a pair for Christmas last year and have since been spotted many times all wearing them at once when out in public together. Bonus: they are machine washable to keep them clean and odorless.
Outdoor Voices was created to be an athletic brand that was comfortable enough for everyday wear but could still perform in physical use. What I love most about the company is that they cater to all body types and do not just market themselves to incredibly fit and toned superhero people, as many athletic clothing brands do. Everything I own from the brand is comfortable and flattering. I have become so obsessed that working for their headquarters in Austin, Texas is my new dream job.
Justin’s Nut Butters
My diet in college has become primarily snack based, and peanut butter is my favorite – I eat it at least twice a day. I love this peanut butter in particular because it contains responsibly sourced ingredients and is transparent in their production policies. They also make a to go pack which I always have in my bookbag and a peanut butter and honey flavor which is simply delicious.
I am constantly humming a new song or listening to music (show my Spotify some love in the upper right corner). Here are a few I have been listening to on loop:
Tears Dry On Their Own – Amy Whinehouse
Swim Good – Frank Ocean
Just Friends, Hayden James and Boy Matthews
A Thousand Miles – Vanessa Carlton Refix, MNEK
Lay It On Me – Vance Joy and Portugal. The Man Remix, Portugal. The Man
Across the Room (feat. Leon Bridges) – ODESZA, Leon Bridges
