Carly grew up in Tampa, Florida. She describes herself as a “quirky, Type A, workaholic”; a personality any Georgetown student can relate with.

Carly attended Georgetown University where she majored in marketing in the MSB. She started blogging during her freshman year.

In 2010, during her sophomore year, Carly wrote and published her first book, “The Freshman 50”. This book is one part memoir and one part survival guide. In the book, Carly explains that 50 things she wished she knew before going to college.

Since she graduated from Georgetown in 2012, she moved to New York City with her dog, Teddy!

By the way, Teddy is on Instagram and is incredibly adorable. Follow @theodorefitzpatrick for all the cute doggy pics!

Since then, she has basically taken over social media with her extremely popular blog, her hilarious Twitter, her envy worthy Instagram (shoot me a follow, please!) and her informative Youtube channel!

Her blog, The College Prepster, is an entertaining blog that chronicles her day-to-day activities, her fashion advice, her various types of recommendations and much more! If you haven’t checked it out, you should. It is one of my favorite bookmarks on my computer!
