3 helpful packing tips

Here are 5 helpful packing tips I came up with while packing for Spain to help you make sure that you remember everything you will need!

I start by planning out my outfits for every single day I will be gone, I make a list of all of the clothing and accessories I will need for each outfit.  Then I go through like my morning routine and make a list of all the things I will need!  Like in the shower I will need a razor, body wash, shampoo and conditioner and then I will need my travel size proactiv, tooth brush, tooth paste, and I begin making a list of all of these things!  Then I make a list of all the electronics I will need and their accessories that I will need to use them.  Also, keep in mind if you're going to another country you may need things like outlet adapters...

After I am done packing, I make a list of all of the things I will need to put in my bag that I cannot put in earlier, like my phone charger, hair brush, makeup, etc.  This way when I am leaving for the airport I can go around and collect all of the things on my list and I won't forget anything!

On my trip to Spain I will have to lug all of my bags on trains, up flights of stairs and all over, so I am only bring a "carry-on" size suitcase and my Timberland canvas bag for my actual carry-on this bag has like nothing in it, so it can remain light and if I buy a ton of stuff I will be able to put that stuff in there!

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …


Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!


My August 2017 List

I cannot believe that it's the end of summer and I am leaving for college this week! Today I am sharing my monthly list for August.

I read a post in the middle of the month and it seriously was so great at explaining when the best time to post is if you're interested you can find it here.
The shows that I have been binging this month have been Jane the Virgin - the new season 3 is now out on Netflix, this telenovela is so worth the watch and Desperate Housewives - I watched the entire show, all 8 seasons, a couple of years ago and now I am re-watching this great show on Hulu.

I recently picked up this Smashbox Primer Water, and so far I have been LOVING it. If you haven't already checked it, I would definitely do so. I love spraying it on in the afternoon to freshen up my makeup!
