How to be a Morning Person

In the spirit of the New Year I decided to gather ways to become a morning person so here are 5 tips that I have been trying to help me become a morning person in 2016!!

1. You really have to go to bed early...there is no way to be a night owl and a morning person.  If I have to leave my house at 7:30 (and like to have 1.5 hours to get ready for my day) then I go to be at 8:45 so I can relax and hopefully fall asleep around 9, that way I get about 9 hours of sleep.

2. Drink cold water when you first wake up, this will help you to feel more awake and drinking water has SO many benefits such as it is good for your skin and it helps you eat the right amount of food because you feel full when you are actually full's a great way to jump start your morning!

3. Get moving quickly, leave your alarm away from your bed, this way you have to get out of bed to shut it off!  If you use your phone as your alarm this will also help you to not be playing on your phone at night when you need to be sleeping.  This will also help you to stop pressing snooze which is a waster of time because the sleep you get after pressing snooze is no longer beneficial and you are wasting valuable time which you will most definitely regret later in your day when you didn't eat a good breakfast or didn't pack your lunch!

4. Have something to look forward to when you wake up.  Whether that is a really yummy breakfast or a good outfit to wear, this will help you want to get up.

5. Plan ahead…get all of the stuff you can ready the night before for the next morning!  This will make your morning a lot less stressful and much more enjoyable.

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 - …


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 …


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!
