Productivity Tips for Back to School

Today's post is going to be all about tips to help you be more productive while summer is wrapping and school is beginning!
#1 Wake up early - If you start your day at an earlier time you will have more to get things done and if you start doing things earlier, when your most productive you can accomplish more. #2 Exercise - This gives you something to check off that days to do list and can also help you focus. #3 Plan Out Your Day - Create a list of all the things you need to complete that day, even the simplest tasks, accomplishing things will motivate you to want to accomplish even more.

My Comfy Summer Outfit

This outfit is not one I would wear out for dinner or to look super cute, however this is what I have been wearing to be comfortable these last few weeks while I rest up and prepare to return to school.

Lace Up

Today I am sharing my favorite new top!! I picked it up from Hollister about two weeks ago and am totally in love! I have been living for flowy tops lately because they look cute and are SO much more comfortable than a more structured top.

Hay Fields

When I was planning outfit posts for this week I began thinking about what I haven't really posted, and realized I haven't really styled a lot of shorts and decided to post a casual jean shorts outfit. This aerie tee is so comfy I love it! I also love that this tee will go perfectly with some black leggings this fall for another comfy outfit. If you cannot tell I am obsessed with this necklace! It is so cute and goes with my extremely neutral wardrobe perfectly!

Sundae Bar

This weekend for a treat I created a little sundae bar for some friends as an afternoon treat! It turned out really cute and was delicious! This was super fun and easy to prepare for, the most time consuming part was baking the brownies.
This project is so customizable you could add even more toppings or less, it's so easy! 

This my sundae, it was fun to make and so yummy!!

My Road Trip Packing List

I recently went on a road trip to the 1000 Islands, you can read more about my trip here, packing for trips, especially this one, is always sort of last minute for I started thinking and decided to make a go to packing list for myself that I could easily use to pack for any over night after creating this list I decided to share it here on my blog. So, here is my packing list for overnight road trips in the summer!

July 2016 Favorites

Towards the end of June I finally purchased my first pair of chacos ever and have since fallen in love! They are so comfortable and great for running errands, camping and going to the lake. Also throughout the month I have become obsessed with my roller lash mascara by Benefit it works SO well. This summer has been so hot sobaseball hatshave been so handy to keep the sun off my face and out of my eyes, they also work great for covering up a bad hair day. My favorite snack has by far been gala apples with peter pan peanut butter, it's delicious and pretty healthy too. Fresh flowers have truly been helping me have a better day, just picking up myself some fresh flowers from the grocery store can really brighten my day!
