This is a sponsored post in partnership with BioClarity and Her Campus Media. All words and opinions are my own. I’ve had the same nightly routine since I was in middle school. No joke. It changes around slightly, but for the most part I do the same few things every night without fail. It’s important to stick to a good routine, it helps you build healthy habits and get yourself into the right mindset for the next day’s challenges. Today I’m going to share with you my nightly routine and how it has changed just a little since I started using BioClarity. Eat dinner. Ryan and I just got back from a 3 week vacation. We did a lot of walking around and exploring but we also did a ton of eating. I decided that once we got back it was time for me to buckle down and start eating healthier again. My typical dinner is usually a chicken breast with some brown rice. Occasionally I’ll treat myself by making ground turkey tacos but for the most part, I eat close to the same thing every night when I’m at school which can sometimes get boring but at least it’s… View Post

Ryan and I went on a road trip! If you recall from my previous posts, on the day after Christmas we flew to Oklahoma to be with his parents for a week. Then, we flew to Florida for a week in Fort Myers. We had a lot of fun and spent most of the week relaxing on the beach and trying every single restaurant within walking distance. Right before we flew to Florida, we decided that we wanted to take a road trip. Originally, Ryan was supposed to be in Fort Myers the following week for work meetings but then found out that he didn’t have to go. So we had a free week on our hands. We really wanted to visit New Orleans and Nashville but we had never made actual plan to go. When Ryan suggested we rent a car in Florida and drive back up to PA, stopping at a few destinations on the way, I was all for it. I love seeing new places and road-tripping is a great way to see more parts of the United States. We only had roughly 3 days in each place but we tried to make the most of it!… View Post

As 2016 comes to a close, I can’t help but want to reflect on everything that has happened this year. 2017 is going to be a big year (graduating college & hopefully starting grad school in an unknown city?!) but before we get to all that, I wanted to hit the highlights on my favorite parts of this year! Cancun, Mexico Ryan and I kicked off 2016 in Cancun which was a lot of fun! I enjoyed being able to sunbathe, swim, and read to start the year and I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to be starting 2017 the same way (but more on that later). We stayed at a resort that was absolutely stunning and I wish I could have spent every day in 2016 there! 2016’s Epic Food I’ve definitely indulged in some great food this year! When compiling these photos for this post, I’ve actually felt impressed with the different places I’ve found this year. Pics in order from first to last: MacMart, Green Eggs Cafe, El Vez, Green Eggs Cafe (all in Philadelphia), Black Tap (NYC), Hundred Acres (NYC), Jonathon’s (Dallas).  21st Birthday I was excited to celebrate my 21st birthday in West Chester and Philadelphia with… View Post

Merry Christmas everyone! This year I was really excited to participate in the Blogger Secret Santa hosted by Abigail and Cathleen! I had a blast shopping for Abigail, my Secret Santa pal. I’m so excited she loved the gifts I sent. You can check out her postĀ and see the gifts I ended up purchasing for her! My Secret Santa was Gabby from The Swirl and I was SO excited when I found out my package was from her. I pretty much screamed when the box arrived and I saw her name on the return address. I ended up filming a video of my reaction to each of the gifts because I know I love seeing people’s reactions so I wanted Gabby to be able to see that I really, truly loved everything! Now, let’s get into the loot. The first thing I opened was the card because I’m a good person and I actually low key love cards. Gabby wrote me a really sweet note inside that I’ll definitely be keeping forever in my “box of cards”! I laughed when I saw the card because she had featured it on her Instagram a few days prior and I thought it… View Post

As the Christmas season kicks into high gear, I can’t help but want to share some of the best gifts you could possibly get for the college students in your life. These items are perfect for the male or female student, and I’m sure they’d put a huge smile on their face. If you know someone who is passionate about school and getting good grades, this is the gift guide for them! Wacom Bamboo Folio Most college students are either a laptop person or pen and paper person. The Wacom Bamboo Folio is a perfect compromise. You can leave your laptop at home while you recharge and take notes by hand. My Bamboo Folio allows me to be completely present in the classroom. When I took my laptop to class I almost always got distracted and was unable to focus. But if I bring my Bamboo Folio I know I can unplug for class and get those notes right onto my laptop once i get home! I can transfer my handwritten notes to PDF form… View Post
