8 Ways to Celebrate Friendsgiving

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Even though we went into Christmas overdrive at 12:00 AM on November 1, don't forget Thanksgiving is coming up fast! This holiday is great for spending time with family, but Thanksgiving break is also the perfect time to reconnect with friends back home.

Friendsgiving doesn't have to equal the typical Thanksgiving meal with friends, it's all about spending time with friends - no matter what you're doing! Below, I've listed 8 different ways you can host a Friendsgiving - from unconventional to traditional, find the activity that's perfect for you and your friends!

Movie Night

There are always great movies in theaters around the holidays so make plans with friends to meet up at the movies and enjoy lots of popcorn and a fun time! You can catch up at dinner beforehand or hang out after the movie to tell college stories from your first few months of the semester and reminisce on old times. Don't forget to get tickets in advance if you live in a big city where theaters tend to get crowded this time of year!

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

I don't know about you guys, but I have a lot more fun with Instagram stories than I do with actual posts! I love writing on Instagram stories, I have no idea why it's so thrilling but it is. I've been having a lot of fun with stories since Instagram first made them a thing a few months ago. You can add so much to a simple picture - there are so many opportunities to be creative with stories. 

Today, I'm sharing some of my absolute favorite ways to spice up an Instagram story and have some fun with your followers! You want to make sure when someone views your story, they're so interested in what they see that they look forward to seeing your stories again in the future!

Whitening Teeth While Watching Fall TV

Thursday, November 2, 2017

I was gifted this product by Smile Brilliant for review, but thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. This post contains affiliate links which means I may receive a small commission from the sale if you choose to purchase from Smile Brilliant. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Mads Maybe!

Sometimes life can get so busy that I don't have time to think about the things I'd like to do for myself - like scheduling hair appointments, painting my nails, or whitening my teeth - let alone actually get those tasks checked off my list. I can't even tell you the last time I'd whitened my teeth, but if I had to guess I'd say the morning of senior prom in 2014.

Living in the South, I'm a huge fan of sweet tea which unfortunately stains my teeth and typical whitening toothpaste can't always remove those stains. I was so excited when Smile Brilliant reached out and sent me their whitening kit so that I could share my experience with you guys! I was even more excited when I received the kit and learned that I could easily fit whitening into my nightly routine without having to sacrifice TV time!

Impress Your Guests with Milkshakes

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

This weekend, my family made milkshakes based off this delicious recipe for spooky s'mores shakes on Dixie Delights. We wanted to try and recreate the look of milkshakes being served in luxurious NYC restaurants and featured all over social media. It turns out, it's easy to create a shake that's just as Instagram-worthy as those big city treats at home! Here's how you can turn an ordinary milkshake into the star dessert of your party.

Add extra sweets with icing

The way to turn your dessert into a 5-star masterpiece is to add a layer of icing (store-bought works perfectly) around the rim of the cup. You'll want to keep it thin enough so that you can easily hold the cup, but thick enough to have room for treats. Once the icing is on, stick different colorful candies of your choosing all around the icing - try to cover it up as much as possible! We used candy corn for our Halloween milkshakes, but you could also use mini cookies, Lucky Charms, sprinkles, Fruit Loops - the possibilities are endless.
