My Fall Morning Routine

I asked you all on Instagram what kind of posts you all like reading, and after so many fashion posts thanks to the Fall 10×10, it seems like you’re ready for some lifestyle posts!

And I totally agree! Lifestyle posts are some of my favorites to read. I think it’s because I’m an openly nosy person, I love to read what people are up to. So today I am going to go through my typical morning routine. This doesn’t happen everyday, usually by Friday I’m sleeping in and not leaving the house until noon. But on average, this is what my mornings look like. Continue reading “My Fall Morning Routine”

September Favorites

Hello everyone! I am going to warn you all that the September Favorites and the October Favorites post will be riddled with accessories to make it look like fall threw up all over the blog. (sorry not sorry!) I have been counting down the days to fall since the 90 degree days would not persist. So without further ado, here’s my favorites for the month of September.

13 Hours on Campus Packing Essentials

For months I’ve been bragging about my class schedule: afternoon classes only on Tuesday and Thursday. It was the perfect set up! Problem is that I also need to work. Turns out my schedule for work makes it so I have lots of gaps of time but they’re not long enough to go back to my apartment which ends up getting me a 13 hour day on campus once a week. That’s a freaking long day. 

But I’m determined to live every day with a happy heart, even if I have to put my happy heat on campus all day. I also know that this is not a one-woman pity party and plenty of people have incredibly long days on campus as well.

So to make life easier on all of us, I’m rounding up what a quintessential backpack looks like when it comes to surviving an incredibly long day. Continue reading “13 Hours on Campus Packing Essentials”

How to Read for Fun in College

We’ve all been there before, where reading in the quiet mornings or rainy summer days are being replaced for running to class or taking a nap to recoup from the long day. With summer in the rear view window reading for fun has also been left behind, which is quite sad in my opinion because I’ve always loved a good book!

When it comes to college, there tends to be a heightened amount of required reading involved. It can be hours of reading and hundreds of pages to take notes on, so the last thing students want to do to relax is read some more.

For most students the library means a place to study, not a place to find the newest novel. And with the limited amount of time college students are given, Netflix and Chilling sounds like a much better option.

But, today I want to tell you about what I’ve been using to help me get through that mindset, and truly enjoy reading again. Continue reading “How to Read for Fun in College”

Monthly Favorites: August

August was a blur of countdowns until school starts, rushing to pack for school, and settling back into the swing of things. How can it be that another summer is officially over? No more racing to catch the ice cream truck on the beach until next summer I suppose.

But, as with every month, I look forward to the season ahead and I’ve collected some favorites along the way. Continue reading “Monthly Favorites: August”

Bath & Body Works Fall Haul

I’m finally moved back into my apartment for school! Ahh I’m so excited to be living on my own once again. Living on my own is so enjoyable for me because it means I get to be in change of everything: what groceries I want to buy, when I want to eat dinner, what soap I want in the bathroom — whatever!

To reward myself for unpacking all my school stuff I grabbed some of new scents from the Bath & Body Works Fall Arrivals. If you ever stop by my apartment now, please go use my bathroom so that you can see the fun stuff on display! Continue reading “Bath & Body Works Fall Haul”

How I use a Physical and Digital Planner Without Going Crazy

If you see me running to my next class or sitting at a cafe on campus you will likely see two things with me at all times: my water bottle and my planner. Fortunately, this post is not about why I love carrying my water with me everywhere.

So I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love writing in my planner and the process of getting a new planner is always a long one. But what’s funny is that I don’t just use one planner. I’m always using my physical planner and my google calendar. Today I’m giving you the low-down on my planner situation, what planner I use, what I use each platform for, and how I keep track of it all without missing a beat.

Six Habits to Start Your First Week of School

This is my last year of schooling ever (Cue the sad music and the panic attack).  Whenever someone brings up being a senior I love to gush about my passion for learning, school supplies, and basically being a big nerd when it comes to school. I love it and it’s almost unfathomable that this chapter of my life will be coming to a close. I’m already riddled with nostalgia and it’s only August.

After years of “First Days” I sat down and thought about the habits that I tend to reinstate once I head back to school. I came up with six habits that I start working on during my first week back at school that really benefit me in the long run and hopefully can help you too. Continue reading “Six Habits to Start Your First Week of School”

Monthly Favorites: July

August is finally here, which means I can finally confess that I’ve been accumulating school supplies since early July. It’s just that I love being a student and this is my last year to soak it all in. Lucky for you all, I get to share with you all the school related (and some other fun purchases) that I’ve been loving all July and can’t wait to utilize this month!

Books You Have to Read if You’re Headed to the Beach.

The weekend may be over but that doesn’t mean that your hours of laying out in the sun should be! I’ve been having such an enjoyable time diving into a good book while simultaneously soaking up some Vitamin D.  With summer and sun also comes time to read books that I want to read. Not that Managerial Accounting 12th Edition isn’t completely invigorating, but I do crave reading my own books. 😉  Continue reading “Books You Have to Read if You’re Headed to the Beach.”
