How to Stay Happy and Healthy During Finals

...Or at least stay healthy...

But in all seriousness it's super important to stay healthy (and try to stay happy) during finals! Here are some top tips to keep up with finals:
  1. Drink lots of water, super important to keep your mind and body going! If you find plain water boring go for infused water! My favorite is cucumber, lemon and mint!
  2. Keep some HEALTHY snacks around. Emphasis on healthy. It's important to have brain food and if you really want to give yourself feel good food that will improve your performance, you need to try to maintain a healthy diet. Here are some awesome recipes from blogilates (love her!) Another great thing about her recipes is that they're easy, and by having to make these recipes it gives you time to take a short break and actually make the snack.
  3. Try the Pomodoro Method. This method is supposed to help you with time management and keep you efficient!

  4. Make time for exercise, even if it is just a walk outside. The fresh air and movement will really help you clear your mind and give you more energy. If you can't go outside try some blogilates or Tone It UP workouts!

  5. For when you have no idea what to wear, here's some inspiration for fashion forward outfits featuring joggers! (Heels not necessary)

    Hope these tips help! Comment down below if you have any you'd like to share. Best of luck, I'll see you on the other side

My Experience Going No 'Poo


Want shinier, smoother, fuller, and healthier hair? No 'poo is a method of giving your hair a breather that's supposed to get you better looking hair. I mean, think about it, way back in the day people didn't wash their hair with shampoo. Shampoo wasn't invented until 1914! Also, the idea that you have to wash your hair often is a societal convention. On top of all that, some shampoo and conditioners aren't good for the environment, how can you use that stuff on your hair??. So, the idea of going no 'poo sounds really great right?

Happy Friday! October 9th, 2015

It sure is a happy friday! I'm flying back home tomorrow for my fall break and I could not be more excited! If you're wondering why I've been M.I.A., I've been at college! I just found that I was super busy and when I did have free time I wanted to take care of myself. I've been working on a post about my transition to life at college and that should be up soon(ish...?)! I might even break it up into parts because I know it's going to be a long post! Anyway, here's a little inspiration for your weekend :)

Happy Fashion: Draped jackets and cardigans for fall!



Happy Travel: Been missing Kauai like crazy!



Happy Food: College food sucks, I'm ready for real food. I've been really craving real Japanese ramen lately

Happy Music: Obsessed with this cover


Happy Videos: Little Mix's "Love Me Like You" the music video kind of confuses me but I love watching it because each member's individual storyline is super cute!

Happy Randoms: Once Upon a Time is back!!!! It was my FAVORITE show at one point (around season 1-2), but then (I have to be completely honest) I think they were a little stuck and (I still watched it religiously) it wasn't my favorite show. But, this season is crazy and I'm so excited to see how it progresses!


XOXO
Love you lots!

T+HK 6: Hong Kong Nightlife

Considering how hot it is in Hong Kong it makes complete sense that night time is when a lot of action happens! At 9:00 there was still a bunch of people on the streets!

Cruella

When I say Cruella I do not necessarily mean de Vil. (Although she does have a very fashion forward black, white, and red signature look that I love!) I'm talking about this lipstick! This NARS color totally inspired today's look :)

My Trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong (T+HK)

Hello Everyone! A couple weeks ago I came back from a trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong. I took a million pictures and I really want to share my experience with you all so I've decided to break them up into days/food-specific posts so it's not overwhelming. There will be a lot of posts in this series and I might interrupt the posts with a couple of fashion/beauty/Happy Fridays just to break it up and keep this blog interesting. I have never been one to type a lot (even though blogs are typically really wordy) so I'll mostly stick with pictures and captions. I hope you all enjoy!


XOXO

Prom 2015


This post is going up late, but better late than never! This year I went for something a little more glam and modern compared to last year. I wore a rose gold dress and put my hair in an updo with dutch braids.

Happy Friday! May 22nd, 2015

Hello hello! I know I have been M.I.A. recently and that is because school and testing pretty much ate up all my time! I'm going to slowly work my way into blogging again (I'm out of practice, and posts, LOL) and I think with my increasing free time I can give you some quality reading/browsing material ;)


Happy Fashion: Summer whites + rompers with sleeves!

Happy Travel: I'm going to Taiwan this summer and I'm so excited!

Happy Food: Arugula salad!
Mix together Arugula and fennel with a lemon, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper dressing, toss in some Parmesan cheese at the end! So good! :)

Happy Music: Love this!!!

Happy Videos: It's not exactly a video, but I have been obsessed with The Flash, it's such a great and interesting TV show and it definitely helps that Grant Gustin is gorgeous!

Happy Randoms: This 1920s inspired Disney Post

P.S. My prom is coming up soon!!! :) I noticed a lot of you enjoyed my prom post from last year so keep your eyes out for this year's post!

Have a fabulous memorial day weekend! Hope the sunshine is out where you live :)
