...Alisa's Lifechangers!

Today I am bringing you my little Alisa's lifechangers! I have know her since high school and we definitely bond over a love of good products and clothing. When we lived together after college I would constantly go shopping in her closet - the girl has some great style. Enjoy!

1. Clinique All About Eyes - I live by this stuff.  I have a jar in my bathroom, my purse, my school bag...I put it on every morning and every night and it definitely makes me look at least slightly less sleep deprived :)

2. It's a 10 Leave-In Product - I use this every time I get out of the shower.  Not only is it a great detangler, it also does tons of other fabulous stuff for your hair so you don't have to use 10 products at once...hence the name!

3. Chloe Eau de Parfum - My go to perfume.  Not too strong, not too weak.  Smells luxurious!

4. J.Crew Stretch Denim Jacket - I've worn this WAAAAY too much already, but seriously it goes with everything. And it's adorable.  The 90s called, and jean jackets are BACK! lolz.

5. Talenti Gelato - OMG NOM.  The most nom in the world.  Mediterranean Mint and Caramel Cookie Crunch are my faves.  Usually I just mechanically shovel food in my mouth (#ladylike), but I savor talenti gelato because it is beyond delicious.

6. Rent the Runway - I'm a 3rd year in law school and we randomly have tons of cocktail parties to go to.  It's really fun, but let's be real - I cannot buy a new cocktail dress every week, and I can't be photographed wearing the same Tibi dress to every event.  Because I am a celebrity.  And Lexington, VA is the equivalent of Los Angeles.  And Facebook is People Magazine. JK but seriously - this website is the best.  I smack myself every day for not thinking of this.  You can rent awesome designer dresses for $50-$300.  I've rented several times.  You can rent two sizes just in case one doesn't fit, and you can rent an additional dress at the same price for $25.  If nothing fits, they give you a store credit.  The dresses are always in perfect condition (the company cleans everything on their own), and the website is full of reviews and pictures of real people wearing the dresses.  Try it out for your next event!

7. Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristoff & Sheryl WuDunn - Okay, now for the real stuff.  This book is about the oppression of women and girls in the developing world.  The thesis is essentially that if we educate women, the world will be a better place.  Simple message, but incredibly powerful piece of writing.  I've read it 4 times.  Get it NOW!

8. Funny women - Tina Fey & Amy Poeller - Seriously, these women are the sh*t.  It's super cheesy, but seeing intelligent, funny women succeed is the biggest motivator in the world. I'm religious about watching 30 Rock and Parks and Rec - not only because it's funny and brilliant and entertaining, but it's also inspirational seeing awesome ladies like Tina and Amy (who star in, write, and produce these shows) win at LIFE!

9. Google Docs - If you haven't used google docs yet, get out from under that rock and create a file!  It's actually called google "drive" now (wtf?).  In the top bar of your gmail, click on "Drive" and you'll be able to open any kind of document (word, excel, etc.) and share it with others.  You can edit it, they can edit it, you can create's awesome.  This is hugely helpful for school work or planning events. 

10. Doodle  - Best website ever for scheduling events.  I was in a bridal party recently and had to corral 8 women for bridal showers, luncheons, bachelorette parties, etc.  Create a survey at with your own dates and times and send the link to your friends if you ever need to meet with a big group or make a decision with a bunch of friends.
