Brandless

What a pleasant finding!

I have been browsing through instagram, Facebook and the internet in general to find quality and affordable products. On my endeavor I found a company named “Brandless”. They sell  limited and select food, household and kitchen, beauty and personal care, and stationery products. And here’s the catch, probably the best one you have ever heard of, everything you order is only $3. Yes, only $3! No matter what the product is, you are assured quality, affordability and reliability.

Drive up the North Shore

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

palisade head
This weekend, during our mid-semester break, I travelled up the north shore for the first time and made a stop at Palisade Head near Beaver Bay, Minnesota. The drive was just over an hour from Duluth. Along the way were a lot of small towns that had a very “up north” feeling to them. Almost all of them had their own little gift shops, bakeries, and candy shops, along with restaurants and cabins available to rent out. The drive alongside Lake Superior was very beautiful and scenic. You really get a good glimpse of just how big Lake Superior is when you are driving beside it for hours. We drove past Split Rock Lighthouse, which I have always seen pictures of but have never seen in person, and then shortly after that, we stopped at Palisade Head and went for a little hike to the edge of the cliffs where we could get a good view of the water. It was a very enjoyable trip and since Duluth is just a short drive away, it makes this drive a great option for spending a Saturday or Sunday when you are in need of a break from school or work. I will definitely be making this trip again soon and I highly recommend others to look into it, as well.

Super Big Block Party

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

This coming Saturday in Duluth is the fourth annual Super Big Block Party. This event includes a great lineup of local artists and bands, food trucks, beverage tents, and a lot more. The headlining band is Hippo Campus, which is one of my favorite bands right now. I have seen them multiple times and they always put on a great show. The event runs from 1:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and if you are over 21, there is also an after party with more live music that you can attend. General admission tickets are just $25 for the day or $35 if you get them the day of the event. I am really looking forward to this event and I hope to see some of you there.

Cheap Movie Tickets!

Monday, April 9th, 2018

If there is one thing that college students love to do, it’s going to movies with our friends. There is a great movie theatre in downtown Duluth called Marcus Theatres and they offer some awesome deals for college students that I wanted to mention. One of those deals is “Movie Tuesdays” where any movie is only $5 to see. They also have “Student Thursdays” where admission is only $6. The theatre is very nice and in a great location also. My friends and I are planning on taking advantage of one of these deals this week as we are planning to go see the hottest new horror movie “A Quiet Place”. One of my favorite parts about going to college here in Duluth is that there is so much happening in the city and so much to do that I am never bored. Whether it’s going to a movie, to Spirit Mountain to ski or snowboard, Chester Park, the mall, or whatever else it might be, there is no shortage of things to do for fun both in Duluth and also right on campus, as well.
