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!



Well, it’s official, I’m no longer a teenager, on Sunday I turned 20! So, in honor of having two decades of my life under my belt, today I am sharing twenty things I have learned in the past twenty years! Holy crap, I cannot believe how old I am, now that I am writing this post, haha!
ONE – Stay positive Over the last year specifically I have really learned that positivity is one of the most important characteristics that I want to have. When someone thinks of me, I want them to think of a positive person. Just trying to be more positive really helps me to just have a better day and to be an overall happier person in general. While the rest of this post is not in order based on importance, this is my number one thing I have learned before I turned 20!
TWO – Be grateful I have realized it’s important to take the time to remember to be extremely grateful for everything I have, you never know how long you will have something. It’s important to be grateful especially for the little things in …
