Happy new year, Happy 2018!! I feel like a lot of people can just feel that this year is going to be full of excitement and happiness! 2017 wasn’t the best year for a lot of people and I don’t mean that politically, but I saw people all around be just kind of have bad luck a good amount last year! I also am thankful for 2017 because all of that made it perfectly healthy into 2018 had another year of experiences! So I am grateful for 2017 personally! Okay enough of the heavy lets talk BOOTS!!!

These boots I am wearing above are from Zara and so cute! They are sold out online, but are still available in select stores! These boots look just like loubs with their red bottoms! They are so unique and will be perfect for NYC *wink wink* Right Now I am enjoying cookies I just pulled out of the oven with a cold glass of milk, and its making me super happy because cookies are my obsession! I just want to say thank you to all of you for none stop love and support!! I am here for all of y’all always!

So we all know if you don’t start Christmas shopping now then you will be slammed and over-whelmed with Christmas plans in about 3 weeks! I know when i’m out if I see something I just go ahead and pick it up! I wait until it gets a little bit closer to Christmas to order the big gifts online! Here is great list for women and men, college or out of college, newly wed or married for 20 years! There is something in her you want or someone you know may want…

 

Lots of love!

How to make studying fun

blonde-girl-gril-studying-school-studies-Favim.com-344722

Hey babes! Long time no talk!! Life has been crazy and I promise just give me a little bit to my life together LOL! I have really been learning how to study right, but it isn’t always fun so I have discovered a few techniques to help make studying less painful!

 

  1. KEEP MOVING EVERY 2 HOURS

I don’t have ADHD what so ever, but you still get antsy if you are sitting in one place for too long! I have discovered my four places to study that work best for me! My room, Outside patio, Starbucks, and Panera! All four of these places are my go-to’s! First I usually start by prepping everything in my room and after 30-1 hr I go outside! I stay outside for about 2 hours then I go get lunch typically at Panera and after 2 hours there I finish off with 2-3hrs at Starbucks with a Vente White Chocolate Mocha!!

2. Get a STUDY not “study” buddy

I personally study best alone and there is nothing wrong with that or with needing company! When others are around I find myself more susceptive to procrastination! If you are finding a study buddy then look for these 3 things…Productivity, Calmness, and Supportive! You may not find someone with all those characteristics, but at least find someone with one or more! Also if you are in college find someone with your same major!

3. Treat yo’ self

Every time you finish a never ending math problem or have been writing an essay on the philosophy of educational rights( yes thats my topic for the semester…pray for me) then take a small break and treat yourself! For example, when I am at Starbucks I get a bag of their popcorn because its SOOO GOOD! Anyways I treat myself to some whenever I finish sections! Its all about the right reward!

4. Get 6-8 hours of sleep

Now when it comes to college this might be an issue if you are out all night, but this doesn’t count towards that! If you have been studying all day and you have a test the next day or the next you need to make sure your brain is getting enough rest or else all the studying you did and little sleep you got might actually make you do worse then if you had slept!

Hopefully this helped some of y’all out! Lots of love!!

Then combine all your dry Ingredients into each other! Now Grab your Pumpkin purée, Vanilla, and oil and combine those as well!

Mix all the ingredients until they are all one color and have a batter look to them!

How to Start a Blog & Make Money!

How to start a blog

MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL

Hey babes! So as you all know I have really jumped into the youtube world, but of course I am going to s†ick to blogging! I think blogging is such an amazing platform for everyone, you don’t need a fancy camera, or even to be a great writer! If you are in college, and are going through a bunch of new amazing changes maybe creating a blog to document them would be a good idea! If you want it to be private you can always privatize your posts only for you!

Youtube has been so much fun, and definitely something I have been really working hard at! I don’t want to get distracted from blogging since this is what started my passion for these online platforms! I encourage everyone to find their niche, and if you love to write and photograph then try blogging! If you love to be on camera, and are into videography then try YT!

This is a sign to anyone who is wanting to start going after their goal, it doesn’t have to be blogging or YT, it could be cooking, fitness, modeling, literally anything…start pursuing it! Don’t wait until tomorrow, start today, start now!

For any of y’all that are interested to hear more about blogging I linked my newest youtube video above where I talk all about my experiences and how to make money while blogging!

Lots of love xo!
