I was recently accepted as a brand ambassador for this company and I could not be any happier, I would never support and promote a company I do not enjoy or agree with! Before I became a brand ambassador for the company I stumbled upon the site and fell in love. The products they have are amazing quality and have such a sleek and elegant look to them. They also advertise their products for multiple uses, the towels can be used for a hot day at the beach but is also a personal touch to any college dorm, or just a corner in your room.

I personally love the way tapestries bring a pop of color and tie any room together, these products are no acceptation to that. There are a multitude of colors and patterns you can choose from! My personal favorite is the Palm Leaf Towel.

To go along with that they also have a Palm Leaf Backpack which is absolutely adorable!

Another amazing campaign they have on their site currently is a shirt you can purchase that 100% of profit will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Fund to support Breast Cancer research! I think this is such an amazing cause because all the money made will go directly to the research for a cure! Breast Cancer Awareness Long Sleeve.

Any of these products shown and on the site would be great for gifts, decoration and the best part about it is you are donating to an amazing cause! Being a brand ambassador I have a discount code you guys can use to get you 25% off your purchase!

College Night Routine 2017

After doing a morning routine I thought I would give you all a look into a typical night for me! Don’t forget to follow all my social media to keep up with me!

____________________________________________________________________________________________

A typical night for me is usually started at about 5 in the evening when I either finish up class or wake up from a well deserved nap. If not already in my dorm I will head back and relax, this is an essential for me especially after a hard day because I get little relaxation time.

After doing so I will typically start on some homework or studying which has been very heavy lately do to just finishing up finals week. The courses I tend to do a lot of homework for are my intro to Sociology class which has about 20 pages of reading after each class. I also tend to spend a lot of time doing math to make sure I can keep up due to the fact that I have a terrible professor.

I tend to get dinner at around 6 depending on when I get done with my homework and studying. I will either go alone or with friends or my roommates, the food here as I mentioned before is amazing.

Depending on how I feel after I might hangout with my roommates and friends or go to the gym If I feel up for it. I like to end my night by watching a movie or catching up on my favorite youtubers videos which typically gets me tired enough to go to bed.

My bedtime has been fluctuating a lot lately just because I have been pulling a lot of late night study nights so depending on the night I go to bed from anywhere to 11 to 2 in the morning which may seem crazy but thats just what everyone tends to do in college. Plus I don’t have to be awake until ten everyday so I usually get enough sleep no matter when I go to bed.

 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Don’t forget to follow all my social media to keep up with me!

College Night Routine 2017

College Classes Update

Im now entering the fourth week of my classes and things are starting to get harder. My classes are going good for the most part, some better than others. Of course I have a lot of homework and studying but that was as expected.

 

Introduction to Communications: I just gave my first speech in this class today and it was very nerve racking. We had to bring in an object that means a lot to us and explain why it has made such a big impact on our lives. I brought in a necklace I bought when I was on my trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands and talked about how it impacted me and sparked a passion for traveling. Overall this is one of my easier classes and my professor is super chill and often brings her puppy which is amazing.

Principles of Microeconomics: Content wise this class is one of my harder ones mainly because economics is a little bit of a struggle to me. However my professor is amazing and is super involved in the class and making sure we understand what he is teaching. He provides us with numerous practice questions at the end of the unit and gives us class time to complete them and ask questions which is super helpful.

Introduction to Sociology: This is one of my more boring classes mainly because it is purely lecture based and my professor isn’t the most engaging teacher. The content isn’t very interesting to me as of right now and I am hoping soon it will get better and be a lot more interesting. This is one of my classes I have to read for and study for the most mainly because it is so much content jam packed into the class.

College Algebra: This is by far the hardest class I am taking. The content isn’t very hard but my professor has a very thick accent making him hard to understand. I have to essentially teach myself which sucks and I feel as though I won’t be prepared for the exam when it does come around.

Introduction to Psychology: This is the easiest class I have and is super interesting to me. I do have to study a lot for this class but I enjoy doing so. My professor is super interesting and straight forward with his teaching method and what he expects from us which is great. I did super well on the first exam we took and am currently writing a paper based on the movie ‘Inside Out’ and how it relates to psychology.

 

So there is a update on how my courses are going! I went home this past weekend to escape the 90 degree heat wave that is rolling through right now and spend the weekend in the air conditioning!

College Morning Routine 2017


Hey guys! I thought I would give a little insight as to what my morning routine for college looks like! Hope you enjoy!

___________________________________________________________________________________________

So my morning typically start at about 9:30, I get up and check my phone for about fifteen minutes before getting up and taking a shower. I tend to shower every morning and depending on the day I will wash my hair as well. Morning showers just wake me up and get me ready for the day which is what I really need.

I use my Olay body soap bar in the shower along with a loofa. I will also wash my face using the st. ives facial scrub or my dr bronners tea tree Castile soap depending on how my face is feeling.

Depending on the day I might go down to the dining hall and get some breakfast. Thankfully my university offers amazing options for breakfast like build your own omelets, smoothies, fruit, bagels and other baked goods, oatmeal and an assortment of cereal.

I will usually go for a bowl of cereal, a cinnamon roll and maybe a bagel or some fruit. On the days I do eat breakfast I tend to feel more awake and just focused in my classes. Like they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

I tend to finish breakfast at around 10:15 and I will head back to my dorm, brush my teeth using my crest 3D white and get my backpack ready to go to class. I don’t start until 11 everyday which is really nice because I can stick to the same routine basically everyday.

I will make my bed and clean up my room a little bit just because when I come home to a nice clean dorm I tend to feel better and be a lot more productive. Depending on if I have time or not I will maybe do a little bit of homework or go over some notes for a bit before heading off to class.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I will be doing a night routine soon as well! Let me know what you think and if there is anything else you want to see from me!

College Morning Routine 2017

College Update 9/7/17

Alright guys so last week was my first week of classes and I made it through! I have to say college is a lot different from high school like the professors are a lot more involved and passionate about their teaching.

All my classes are going well with the exception of my College Algebra class, but that is only because my professor has a thick middle eastern accent and it is very hard to understand him. Thankfully we have math help centers and tutors on campus so I should still be able to do fairly well in the course with the help from that.

I love campus life so far, the food is amazing and I never get sick of it because they change it up everyday and have all different options for everyone so there is always something good to eat. I get two meals a day which is more than enough for me! Monday, Wednesday Friday I will usually get breakfast and dinner while Tuesday and Thursday I just get lunch and dinner and have a granola bar for breakfast.

I will say that the work load is a lot to handle already, I have had to do about forty pages of reading for my sociology class and it has been hard but I break it up into small sections and do it little by little so I don’t get overwhelmed. Other than that the other work I have gotten so far hasn’t been anything I can’t handle thankfully.

My roommates and I are getting along really well so far and we all clean up after ourselves and have made a system for the other cleaning and so far it’s going well.

I went home this past weekend for Labor Day and it felt good to be home again. I missed my family and my dog. It was nice to spend time with them and catch up but I was more than ready to head back to college just because I’m used to that being my home now and I’m a lot more independent when I’m there rather than at home.

I will definitely try to update more and keep you guys in the loop but it is hard to do when I have classes and homework to worry about!

College Update 9/7/17

College Update 8/26/17


I have officially been living on campus for a week and I couldn’t be more in love! I have met so many amazing people and already experienced so many positive things. Now that leadership safari is over I am officially on my own and classes start on Monday.

I am a little nervous for classes to start mainly because I know the amount of work I have to put in and do is going to be a lot and I do not think I am prepared for what I am going to have to do. However I am trying to keep a positive attitude and do my best to keep up with my classes and my homework and achieve my ultimate goal of getting a 4.0.

I do miss home a little bit just because I am used to being around my family and my dog all the time so it is a little weird to be over an hour away from them. The food here is absolutely amazing and I was surprised that I actually like it being a picky eater. I can see why the freshman 15 is a thing because I will definitely have to keep going to the gym to keep the weight off.

My roommate and I are getting along really well mainly because we both don’t drink or like to party a lot so we are mostly focused on our studies. I think it is super important to have a roommate who shares the same values because they can hold you to them and keep you in check if you need it.

I am getting prepared to start classes by looking over my syllabuses and putting down the exams and assignments into my google calendar to keep track of them and make sure that I am keeping up with my them and getting them done on time to get good grades and stop myself from procrastinating.

If I had any tips for moving in I would definitely say do a walkthrough of your dorm if possible and make sure you don’t buy too much if your roommate has already bought it. I have already forgotten to get things but that is okay! You can always get things later.

I will posting a tour of my dorm(Eventually) but let me know if you guys want to see any other posts or have any questions!

College Update 8/26/17

College Update 8/20/17

I haven’t posted in like a week because I have been so busy! I am currently doing a thing offered at my school for freshman and we have had jam-packed days since Saturday. After move in we had a kick off gathering and had a magician/comedian come in and talk to us which was super cool. We were out until about 12 in the morning so we went back to the dorm after and passed out

Sunday I did a movie morning so I went and saw Annabelle: Creation which was super good! It was scary as heck but really good. We then went to a series of speakers and then did a bunch of activities involving all the leadership freshman which is about 2000 people! We basically moved around and did different ice breakers with random people to step out of our comfort zone and begin to get used to meeting new people. We got back  to the dorms at about 11 and took showers and went to bed.

Today we went to breakfast then to a speaker then we went to lunch. We then went and did obstacle courses and trust exercises with our designated groups which was super fun because we became super close through doing that! We then went to dinner and ate and now I’m back at my dorm waiting to go to a slam poetry session which I am super excited for.

I will try to keep you guys updated and will do a dorm tour soon if you guys want to see that!
