Hi! I'm Amy, a pre-med student at St. Lawrence University (voted the preppiest school in America!), studying everything I can get my hands on, and trying to master web programming in my spare time.
I'm absolutely obsessed with interior design, and can usually be found wearing chunky knit sweaters in local bookstores with my customary green tea latte in hand. Besides my love for fashion (especially anything nautical-inspired), I adore baking, classical music, O. Henry's short stories, graphic design, Chipotle, grammar, typography, and sushi. I also am perpetually cheerful. I draw fashion inspiration from quite a few sources, especially Rachel Bilson, Emma Watson, The Devil Wears Prada and Brooks Brothers catalogs.
I have recently begun to harbor a burgeoning passion for blazers of all shapes and sizes, and am slowly but surely increasing my collection from my measly three. Also, if you present me with a Chipotle burrito, we are sure to share a long and fruitful friendship.
I'm always happy to take article requests and to listen to anything else you have to say. Follow me on Twitter if you want instantaneous updates on my exploits, or read my blog at Huffington Post College!

Photo Credit Right around this time of year, I get an inexplicable urge to re-organize my bookshelf, the haphazard under-bed storage jumble, and (unfortunately) the black hole of my dorm, more commonly known as my closet. If you’ve ever been there or are one of those people that cleans their room to avoid studying for […]
Photo Credit If you know about the perfection that is Helvetica, then this post is for you – especially if you’ve ever balked at homework handouts in Comic Sans, cringed at the sight of Papyrus on a restaurant menu, or pinned a few/all of the font roundups on Pinterest. (I’m certainly guilty of that last […]
Photo Credit At the kickoff of 2013, we wrote a post about five dorm room resolutions to strive for during the new year. I have a habit of wondering where I will be exactly one year from the current day, and now that it’s arrived, there are always more resolutions to help guarantee that 2014 […]
