    As you may have noticed, we’ve had a few changes in these parts lately. I wanted to take a moment to reflect on why those changes happened and what exactly they were.

    But mostly, I wanted to take a hot sec to say farewell to the old blog name that I felt too defined by and welcome to the new one!

    One Degree Hotter

    I graduated from college!! I now have my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and (hopefully) never have to stress over a homework deadline again.

    Right after I walked out of my last final I instantly felt so FREE. Almost 100 pounds lighter. No more unnecessary stress about things that keep me up until past midnight.

    Is a Menstrual Cup Actually Life Changing?

    I heard about menstrual cups a couple years ago when Diva Cup started to get popular. At the time, I had no interest in trying one. I was completely content with my tampons and pads. Then, a couple months ago, I got tired of paying the $8-$10 for a box of pads or tampons. Around the same time I saw Kayla was trying out a menstrual cup and so I was pushed over the edge and bought one myself.

    I took the Put A Cup In It quiz to help me pick a cup, and then get a discount. HOLLA! Shout out to Kayla for telling me about it and inspiring me to use a menstrual cup in the first place.

    After taking the quiz, I decided on the Lena Sensitive Large out of the three I was recommended. I was recommended this cup because I have a heavy flow and a high cervix.

    Inserting the menstrual cup

    Putting it in isn’t hard. Getting it to open is hard. However, this is just my opinion and not all girls agree.

    Everything You Should Do in Glasgow

    I’ve been putting off writing this post for months (almost a year) because I knew I would get emotional when I tried to write it. We’re talking, I’m going to book a plane ticket right now, emotional. But we’ve had growth people!!

    Instead of feeling sad when I think about my five months abroad last year, I instead just feel nostalgic. Like looking back on fond childhood memories or hanging out with your besties in high school. Scotland has become a figure of nostalgia for me, so I’m ready to sit down and write this out!

    I did live there for five months, and one of my bff’s is from there and still lives in Glasgow, so I feel like I’m pretty qualified to give good advice on how to spend your time there. Although my pal across the Atlantic may disagree with my “American” touristy ways.

    If you’re going to be visiting Glasgow anytime soon, I got you.

    Getting Around

    Glasgow is a very walk-able city. It’s extremely easy to walk from the city center down to the River Clyde or over to the West End. I walked most places to save money while I was there, but on days I was in a rush or didn’t want to walk a mile or two I’d take the subway.

    The subway it super easy to navigate, too! It’s just a huge circle and if you stand on one side of the platform you go clockwise and if you stand on the other side you go counter-clockwise. Pretty easy, right?

    Plus, each subway station and car has the map posted. There’s no way you’ll get on or off at the wrong place unless you’re not paying attention.

    Glasgow also has a really good bus system, but I never used it since I have a fear of buses. However, I never had any issues getting anywhere just using my own two feet or the subway.

    To give a better impression of how close everything is I decided to make a map with every place I mention in this post. I know it seems like some things are super far away, but I promise they aren’t. Especially with a quick five minute ride on the subway.

    Three Graduation Outfits with PrettyLittleThing

    *This post is in collaboration with Pretty Little Thing. I received items from Pretty Little Thing to write this post, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support College with Caitlyn.

    The day this goes live there are only 46 days until I graduate from college. *Cue the confetti and happy dances*

    I started keeping track a few weeks ago when Abigail were recording a podcast episode and were talking about how soon graduation was. So now I have an official countdown on the white board next to my desk that gets updated religiously every night before bed.

    Up until about a month ago I wasn’t even sure I wanted to walk at graduation. I was just more excited about not having weekly quizzes and like forty problems of homework a week (and that’s just for one of my four classes).

    But then I realized if I walk at graduation that I get to wear a super cute outfit, and that’s where this post comes in! PrettyLittleThing actually reached out to me about showcasing items from their graduation shop. And let me tell you, these pieces are STUNNING.

    Blue Bardot Frill Dress

    This was the piece I was most excited about because it’s literally like my brand colors. #ThatCoolTonedLife
