Books

Woman in the Window

Five/five stars

Any book that makes me sit on my bed after my commute and keep listening, is considered an addicting book in my mind. This book reminds me so much of Gone Girl due to the fact that there are so many twists. Even the last one hundred pages consisted of surprises so you’re not done when you think it’s all figured out! The story of an agoraphobic, the new neighbors, and a girls night in is sure to keep you turning the pages.
The Elite (#2 in the Selection series)

Three/five stars

I’m happy to get back into series because I don’t have to say goodbye to the characters just yet. This is the second book in a trilogy and I loved how light the book was. Easy read and wasn’t heavy like some of the books I’ve read. A perfect read on a beach or in a bath and for anyone who has ever dreamed of being a princess (soo all of us?)

Also, follow me on Goodreads to keep up with all my reading

Products

Epson salts

I absolutely love taking baths. I take them weekly and it’s my perfect way of destressing and my method of self-care. But sadly, I am a college student and I can’t afford bath bombs every week. To supplement, I have really loved pouring in Epson salts into my bath. It has some awesome perks like increasing magnesium levels and eliminating toxins. I like any of the Dr. Teal’s brands  that you can find at Target and Walgreens and the big bag offers many uses per bag.
Everything Pink

I went a little crazy with this color after so much of it was sprinkled across my Pinterest. I have been loving searching for blush pink items for my Pinterest mood board as well as doing little things like paint my nails a pretty light blush. Bring on the Rosé for the sake of the aesthetic!

 

Target Swim Suits

Spring break in Florida is in a couple weeks and that was the perfect excuse to get a new swimsuit. If you’re looking for one I highly recommend checking out Target’s selection. I got a beautifully classic black one and it was so nice to have so many options. I got to pick out the perfect style for me and I can’t wait to wear it on the beach!
Coffee of the Month: Vanilla Latte

It’s midterm season which means many days (and nights) spent at coffee shops to break up the hours in the library. I have been loving my order of a skinny vanilla latte (iced on the warmer days). Also protip that if you have a Starbucks gold card you get free refills on coffee!

 

Quote of the Week 

In my planner, there’s a space to write “notes & thoughts.” I’ve been leaving it blank for months, but in February I have been putting a quote of the week. Each week brings on different challenges and so I loved being able to pick what quote I’ve been loving at the moment.

 

Favorite Quotes

In addition to my Pink Cloud Pinterest board, I’ve really been loving posting to my Quotes board. These are great to come back to when I’m in need of inspiration, motivation, or a new weekly quote. They’re all great reminders!

Let me know what you loved in February. Bring on the birthday month!

Monthly Favorites: December

It’s my last week of winter break (Or my last week of my last winter break ever if we want to get technical).  And I’m sitting in my bright clean room typing away thinking about how I’m going to miss my lovely room. I’m finally at a point where my room at home has become like an oasis, designed perfectly how I want it. There’s no rush to go back to my college apartment!

Today I wanted to go though what I loved in December 2017. It was the month of finals so peppermint coffee and Quizlet flashcards definitely makes the list. But go ahead an take a look at what else I was obsessed with in December that isn’t finals related!

October Favorites

I feel like every month when I do these kinds of posts I’m blow away by the fact that another month has gone by. This year, I’m extra amazed at the speed of time because in a short seven months I’ll be graduating. So the closing of each month is just another reminder that things are about to change.

Lately the weather has been telling everyone that winter is here. With snow flurries and freezing temperatures, I feel like I didn’t get enough fall time in! But nonetheless, here all all my October favorites for some last minute fall essentials! Continue reading “October Favorites”

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. Continue reading “September Favorites”

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”

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! Continue reading “Monthly Favorites: July”

June Favorites

Happy Post-Fourth of July! Hopefully everyone has returned back with all their fingers not blown off. I personally have eaten enough barbeque food to last me until Labor Day. I’m currently sitting in my freshly cleaned room with my window wide open as the morning breeze is flowing through the room. It’s tranquil mornings like these that make me grateful for my summer back home. Being here for almost half the summer now has opened the doors to some habits that I’ve been falling into. This month was one that was spent traveling to Cancun, catching up on my new summer reads, and spending time in the gym. For this post, I’m going to share with you what I’ve been obsessed with for the month of June. Continue reading “June Favorites”

May Favorites

How is it that I feel like it’s only been a few days since a ran out of my last final? Just like that, today is June 1st, another milestone in this short summer break. I’m trying to take advantage of this summer by striving to make sure no day is wasted away due to my lack of enthusiasm or annoyance that there’s nothing to do in the suburbs. While that idea hasn’t been 100% successful, I have been working on using products or doing things that make me happy. Since the month is over, I thought I would round up all of my favorites for the month of May! Continue reading “May Favorites”
