Hello and happy Monday! It seemed like the weekend zoomed by. I had a cross country meet on Saturday and Sunday was filled with church, youth, and getting ready for the busy week ahead. My youth group played paintball last night and that was my first time to ever play. It was so much fun and we played in a few different obstacle courses so it was different each time! Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite quotes that I’ve found recently as some Monday motivation. Although I’m definitely not a huge fan of Mondays, if you have a positive attitude about them, it can lead you into a very happy week!
Hey guys! I’m really sorry there weren’t any posts last week. I know I keep saying school is busy, but it seems to just keep getting busier and busier! I had so many things going on that I had no time to blog or shoot any pictures. This Friday, I wore a super cute outfit to school featuring some of the cutest little jewelry pieces from Bead.It Jewelry! They sell such cute items and I love wearing them because they add small details and pops of color to any outfit I wear! I think there’s only been one day of the week I haven’t worn this necklace, and I worn this bracelet and this bracelet every single day, I haven’t taken it off all week! My outfit is really comfy because of this soft gray tee, and these are my absolute favorite pair of jeans, they’re the best! I hope you enjoy, read on for more details!
Hello everyone! Who’s excited for the weekend? I definitely am, I don’t have any meets or games this weekend and I can relax and catch up on some other things I need to get done. This week seemed like it went by super fast since we got Labor Day off. If only every week could go by this quick! I’ve been doing a lot of training for cross country since the season has finally begun and we are getting into the routine of practices and meets and recovery. I actually had to take an ice bath the other day to help heal my shins, and it was SO COLD! As I said before, I’m so glad for the weekend, so let’s just get started with my favorite links!
This past month of August, I’ve been listening to lots of fun music throughout the week. I’ve started to see there’s always these same few songs that I listen to over and over again. Anytime I would listen to music, I would gravitate to this group of songs. These are fun, uplifting songs that brighten any day and get you pumped up for the task ahead! It’s so fun to play music while you’re in the shower, getting ready, or even while doing homework. For me, it makes the homework go faster and I’m more energized to get it done. Here is a compiled list of all the songs I’ve listened to this August, hope you enjoy!
What songs have you been loving recently? xoxo
Wow, it’s been another crazy week. It seems as if I just get busier and busier! This week I’ve had so many tests and quizzes and I’m really happy it’s finally Friday! This weekend, I have my first cross country meet of the season! It’s in Memphis, TN, and it’s a night meet. We run at about 8 pm, so thankfully it won’t be so hot out by that time. I’m super nervous but also really excited! I was in a boot all summer so I wasn’t able to run much, so I’ve been just getting back into training. I’m glad I can start running again! This week I found some super fun links, read on to learn more!
Hello everyone! Today’s post is about one of my new finds: lemon water. Of course I’ve heard of it before, but I never really drank it until just recently. I really want to make a habit of drinking it every morning to start my day. I’ve heard that it’s really beneficial and has so many rejuvenating qualities! One of my main things I want to start doing is having a cup of lemon water by my bed or in my bathroom. That way, when I wake up in the morning, I can go ahead and start my day with a fresh cup of it! I also have found some fun ways to drink it throughout the day, even when I’m at school and am not at the place I can go cut up a lemon ;). Keep reading for more tips!
Every year at my school, we have a “Preppy Day” where, on the Friday of a big home football game, we all dress up really preppy and wear classic outfits or uniforms. Other than that one day a year, my school isn’t preppy at all. After that day, I never wear anything like that the rest of the year. This week, when I was trying to think of what to wear, I realized I had basically nothing because I never dress that way! Thankfully, I was able to borrow a few things and my outfit turned out pretty good! Although I would never wear this otherwise, it was fun to dress up in a classic preppy outfit for a day! Keep reading for more details on my look!
Wow, it sure has been awhile since my last Friday Five! Towards the end of spring I was busy with exam prep and lots of studying, over the summer I didn’t have my computer so posts didn’t go up as regularly, and my first two weeks of school have been so hectic and busy! Excuses aside, I’m here with a long awaited Friday Fives post for the first time in forever. This week has been another crazy week. Going back into school, I was expecting to start off slow and not be too busy. I was so wrong! I had three tests and two quizzes and homework every night- and that was just for the first week! Now that I’ve sort of developed a routine and a feel for how things are going to go this year, I’ve been able to settle down and start blogging again. Without further ado, read on for my Friday Fives!
I always bring my lunch to school, but there are some mornings I have absolutely no idea what to bring and I’m rushing so I end up throwing some random, unhealthy things into my lunchbox. This year I want to go ahead and have a bunch of options in mind so that I can already have an idea of what I can take for lunch each day! I’m going to try to be healthier this year and not turn to the junk food options when I’m hungry. This post is about healthy lunch options for back to school!
Hello everyone! Long time, no outfit post! I’ve been super busy with school starting back and I’ve had barely any time to work on posts or do anything, really. I’ve been so focused on homework and studying that I haven’t been able to shoot any photos. But this weekend I was able to find time and I was really happy with how they turned out! My dress is really simple, it’s just white with hundreds of tiny gray dots all over it. My absolute favorite part of the dress is that it has pockets! I’ve never had a dress with pockets before and it’s so convenient to pop your phone or wallet in there and not have to carry it around. Since my dress is so neutral, I brightened up the outfit with some fun, colorful jewelry. I’ve been loving rings lately, and today I’m wearing a variety of different styles. My bracelets are a mix of strings and beads, read on to find out more details!
To me, back to school is way more fun when you have some adorable things to brighten up your supplies and backpack. Target has always been my go to for cute notebooks and pencils, but just recently I have been obsessed with bando.com. I want to buy out the whole site, everything is so cute. They have planners, notebooks, pencils, pens, sticky notes, and so much more. I just recently ordered my new agenda from there (check out my post on my planner picks here) and I really wanted to buy a sticker set to go with it. This post is a big collection of some super cute things for your backpack, but be warned, a lot of it will probably be from Bando!
Wow, is July really over? It’s crazy how fast summer zoomed by. School starts in less than a week for me, and it seems like just yesterday I finished my final exams and got out for summer break. As sad as it is to realize that July is over, today I bring you my top five picks from this month. Some of my favorite things I’ve been using and loving lately. I’ve been reading a lot this month, because I started the Harry Potter series and haven’t been able to put them down, even though I need to read my summer reading instead. I’ve also been finding a lot of delicious recipes and the other day I decided to get my baking tools out and try one- it was amazing. Read on for more of my July favorites!
Hello everyone! I know it has been forever since my last post, and I’m super sorry about that! I have been really busy lately because ever since I got back from camp, I have been trying to get all of my summer reading and assignments done before school starts back. I start August 8, which is so soon! I’m not looking forward to going back to school at all, but one thing I am looking forward to is my new agenda arriving! I just ordered it, and I cant wait to get it! If you are looking at different agenda options and haven’t gotten one yet, I would recommend it. It really helps keep you organized, something that I’m going to try to do a lot better at this school year! Below are a few of my favorite planners, enjoy!
Hello everyone! I’m so sorry about the lack of posts recently, I’ve been at camp and out of town for the past two weeks! But today’s post is a roundup of my favorite items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’m sure many of you have probably heard of the sale before, but basically every year Nordstrom has a huge sale and all of the new fall clothing can be bought at really low prices! Everything shown in this post is all under fifty dollars, and there are some really great deals! Read on for more of my picks!
