I have some great stuff in the works for the month of September, including some great recipes, life tips, and opinion pieces. I can't wait! But before I get ahead of myself, here's my monthly list of things that rock. Because sometimes you just need to share the awesomeness.

Pink Pants and Mesh Stripes for Back-to-School

For today's post, I had a little fun and put together a quick back-to-school outfit on Polyvore. I love colored pants. The sporty top from H&M makes it more wearable, and the simple color palette allows the pink to shine through. I'd go with a messy bun or texturized ponytail and simple makeup with black eye liner. Don't forget your books!

Major pain in the butt, if you ask me.

If you take notes correctly, it can help you focus on the lecture, study more effectively, and ace your tests!
