    Matching Sets

    Sometimes, it’s hard to stay motivated to work out, however, I found that when I feel confident, I am much more motivated to get up and go to the gym and kill it while I am there. That being said, a new workout outfit, a matching set, of course, usually does the trick – especially when I find myself in a bit of a workout rut.  Matching sets are just way cuter and more efficient! Rather than picking between a random pair of leggings or a top here and there, it is a lot easier to grab a matching set. They are also extremely easy to shop for! Furthermore, sets can…

    How to Achieve the Best Blowout

    I think we can all agree the best part about going to get your hair done at a salon is the amazing blowout you walk out with. Am I right? There is something about the volume, bounce and shine that you’re left with… But, as much as I want to achieve the look, I give up every time when I am faced with the task of picking up the blow dryer and round brush…  Well, there’s no more of that… I’ve got something better to share…Who’s ready? I know I have referenced my favorite tool before, however, I haven’t shared with you my full blow-out routine or let you in…

    What to Look for While Thrifting

    Blog Post #10 I’m sure you have all heard of thrift shopping before. You know, Macklemore’s song, or Emma Chamberlain’s favorite hobby? Yeah, it’s quite the “trend” right now, to thrift and find retro or vintage pieces. I mean, thrifting is not only super fun, but it is also great for the environment as well – so let it be a trend! By choosing to buy second-hand clothing, instead of buying brand new, you reduce waste. This, in turn, helps the planet! Essentially, you’re not only saving money, but you’re also participating in the 3 R’s; “reduce, reuse, recycle”.  With that said, I really enjoy thrifting every so often! For me personally, it’s a…

    What Should You Eat For Lunch?

    Nourish bowls are my go-to meal for the afternoons! Some people call them Buddha bowls, however, no matter what you call them, these bowls are an excellent option for a healthy and easy lunch or dinner. Nourish bowls are well-balanced, healthy meal containing a variety of nutrient-dense ingredients. As I mentioned in my last blog post about meal prepping, I usually like to throw a bunch of veggies, grains, proteins, and healthy fats into a bowl and call it a day.  These bowls are the easiest way for me to eat healthy on a tight schedule. I know what I am going to eat for lunch, and it can take less than 10 minutes to put together (if prepped…

    What I Prep for the Week!

    It can be really difficult to eat healthy and nourish your body while trying to work through a busy schedule. For me personally, I find it difficult to stay on a healthy eating track while focussing on full-time school, working, and going to the gym consistently. That being said, a helpful and healthy eating strategy that I like to take part in, is meal prepping! Before I get into what I like to do, I want to point out that there is no correct method to meal prep! Because everyone has different food preferences, diets, cooking abilities, and fitness goals, everyone’s weekly prepping is going to look a little different.…

Some are fairly new, and others I have been using for a couple of months, however, they are still “current” in my eyes as they haven’t been used much due to staying home… I have categorized the products into makeup, skincare, and other.

    How to Amp Up an Outfit

    Blog Post #6 I often experience days where I do not feel like putting a cute outfit together. On these days I usually gravitate towards a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a sweatsuit. However, sometimes these outfits can look kind of boring and not very stylish. That said, my favorite way to transform a not-so-interesting outfit is by using accessories! Accessories are super versatile as they are extra additions to outfits. Although simple and typically small, they can make a huge difference! It makes it look like you put thought into your outfit and planned it really well when in reality you just put on a couple of…

    Jeans, Really?

    Blog Post #5: Do you ever wake up feeling like you need a boost of confidence in the morning? I feel you!   Picture this: You wake up exhausted, not feeling particularly cute. You have things to tackle on your to-do list like getting your nails done and picking up some items for tonight recipe. You want to leave the house with your bedhead and your lululemon’s because no one will care, right?  But it’s totally just as easy to slip on a pair of your favorites jeans and you’ll walk out feeling way better than you would have if you went with option one.  Or picture this: You’re in the…

    Face Mask Favorites

    Blog Post 4: As Dory mentioned last week, she loves the face mask recommendations I gave her. So, here I am today, to recommend them to you and hopefully you enjoy them just as much!  In the introduction of my blog, I defined self-care as “doing what you need to do to make yourself feel better and happy”. I also opened up and expressed my need for a better self-care routine, as I often find myself struggling to find time (or make time) for the things that I enjoy. With that said, I explained that putting on a face mask and watching Netflix usually does the trick! It makes me feel…
