This weekend has been hectic, but luckily I've still been able to get this week's best of the internet up! In other news, I've reached the end, after this week, it will officially be summer for me. I've been powering through a ton of last-minute studying and what-nots to get prepared for my exams, but honestly, I'm just looking forward for this week to be over. It does not feel like the schoolyear is coming to an end (where has the year gone?!), but I mean hey, I'm not complaining! If you're one of those lucky people that has already finished their exams and has already started summer, here are some great reads to fill up your new-found free time.

One // How to Weed Out Your Closet

I'm just going to come out and say it, I am a hoarder. I always keep things around, thinking that maybe I'll use them sometime. I don't.

This article covered a social experiment of sorts, where a couple decided to stress-test their relationship. This meant that they would create a situation that would feel the way that marriage would feel, moving in together, voicing their true concerns, and avoiding romance in order to push the boundaries in their relationship. This let them see their differences and see if they would be good together in the long run. Eventually, they moved in permanently, and then he proposed, and then they were married, and they are still together now after two years.

Three // Productive Things You Can Do On Your Day Off (Besides Watching Netflix!)

I'm guilty of watching Netflix on all my days off, but now that summer is approaching (!!) I'll have lots of time that I should do more with than just binge-watch. Although I have some summer plans, I'll still have a lot of downtime that I don't know what I'll do with. Luckily, Keating has some great ideas for things that you can do to be productive (yay for productivity!) so that I won't just waste the summer away.

Four // 50 Beauty Tricks Using Common Household Items

Guess what, household items aren't just limited for their intended purpose, but they can be used to substitute or to compliment beauty products! I already use a few of these tips, but a majority of them I have never heard of or have never tried out. I can personally vouch for the cornstarch (#50), toothbrush (#21), and tissues (#18), but there are so many more brilliant tricks that I have yet to try!
