ACTUAL GOALS FOR 2018

In my last post I mentioned a few vague resolutions for the new year (live fearlessly, focus on myself, etc.), but I wanted to also lay out a few concrete goals (speak it into existence, am I right?): finish at least one round of Kayla Itsines’ BBG program read at least 50(!!) books try my…

FALL OBSESSIONS

Happy December!! This week has been so strange.  Tuesday was my last day on campus for this semester and it still scares me how time is going by so fast. I only have a year and a half left of college?? ALSO, on Thursday it actually snowed in my city for the first time in…

COZY SWEATERS UNDER $50

A huge shoutout to Texas weather for finally realizing ’tis the season to be cozy. Fire up some candles, brew some tea, bundle up in a fluffy blanket, and take out (or memorize) your credit card number… it’s time to shop. I scoured the internet for some of the coziest looking sweaters and the best…

21 HOPES FOR 21

Bonjour! I turned 21 last week which welcomed me with a whirlwind of emotions. Taylor Swift said it best – I’m still a year away from 22 but I definitely feel “happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time”. I am excited to be 21 but even more so I’m frightened. I have no…

FALL/BIRTHDAY WISHLIST

Happy Fall!! The transition to Fall is one of my favorite time of the year. Although I can’t wear Fall fashion yet (shoutout to Texas for still being in Summer weather), I’ve spent the past month admiring all the beautiful sweaters and scarves lining the aisles of stores. Also, my birthday is around the corner……

SUMMER OBSESSIONS 2017

Bonjour! Happy September! September is my favorite month for many reasons. Not only is it my birthday month, but I am a sucker for Fall vibes. Cooler weather, oversized cardigans, pumpkin flavored everything and holiday movies? Yes plz!! As excited as I am for Fall to start, I am a bit sad to let Summer…

I’M BACK AND LIFE IS GOOD

Bonjour! Hola! Hallo! I’m back and life is good (in case you couldn’t tell from the title). I’m a bit shocked I didn’t post in July (I honestly thought I did!!) The truth is I was feeling extremely uninspired, lazy, and unmotivated, however, today I woke up with an insane amount of energy, inspiration, and…

HAPPY HALF-NEW YEAR: NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS CHECK-UP

Happy almost-mid June! Wow, I can’t believe we are already 6 months into 2017. So far it’s been such a blur to me. This year has been great for my self-improvement and wanderlust. I visited Vegas again, went to Canada for the first time, finally fulfilled my Gossip Girl dreams and set foot in Manhattan,…

WISE WORDS FROM BROOKE DAVIS

“Someone once said; ‘It’s the good girls who keep diaries. The bad girls never have the time. Me? I just wanna live a life I’m gonna remember. Even if I don’t write it down.” – Brooke Davis Brooke Davis from One Tree Hill is one of my favorite badass women on television. I admire her…

DATING MYSELF BUCKET LIST

I am an only child so I was pretty independent growing up. I’m quite comfortable doing alone many things most of my friends wouldn’t. I remember heading to the student center in between classes once and finding a friend quickly rushing to the door with a bag of McDonalds. After doing the hey-how-are-you-me-too convo I asked…

BENEFITS OF CHIA SEEDS

  If you’ve been trying to eat healthy, I’m sure you’ve heard of chia seeds. I personally had no idea what chia seeds actually did for your body. They just sounded healthy so I would just toss them into my smoothies on my acai bowls. Today I finally did some research and found out some…

PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER

“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel…
