Coffee & Chit Chat | No. 2

First off, let me just say that I love how these coffee & chit chats are becoming more and more of a thing in the college/lifestyle blogging world. It’s not that I’m not genuine in all my other posts, but I just love this format because it’s so relaxed, and I legitimately feel like I’m hanging out with you chatting over a cup of coffee.

So lets see… where do I begin.

Quick & Easy Daily Makeup

Quick & easy daily makeup perfect for college students, post-gym routines, or if you're in a rush!

Hey y’all! Okay so I went back and forth for what seemed like hours about what to call this post. It could be makeup products for post-workout, it could be everyday makeup products for a busy college student, or it could be makeup products for when you don’t feel like wearing a ton of makeup. But I’m just settling on quick and easy daily makeup because it encompasses all of the options and more.

This routine takes me at most 10 minutes but usually it’s around a solid 5 minutes. It requires only four products minimum (blush and bronzer not included) which means it can be taken with you anywhere! Hence the reason I wanted to make this a post-workout makeup post.

Protein Brownies

High protein brownies perfect for any gym junkie.

Happy happy Friday! Let me just fill your feed with a slice of chocolatey deliciousness for a second. I’m going to give you a little bit of a backstory on these brownies. So my neighbor, long time friend, and fellow fitness junkie Libby, also known as @fit_lib on Instagram, posted about these protein brownies back in December. She posted the recipe in January and ever since then, I’ve wanted to try them out.

I finally decided (six months later that is) to drive myself to the store, pick up all of the necessary ingredients, and whip up a batch of these bad boys. This recipe was created by Libby, and I’m just sharing it here on the blog. Here’s a few disclaimers before we get into this post:

Back-to-School College Haul

Back-to-school College Haul | College dorm room essentials

Welcome back! Today’s post is one of my favorites strictly because of the cover photo. Isn’t that a beautiful flat lay? Also I just discovered that berry/mauve color is complementary to my mint green that I use and I’m kinda obsessed. Anyways, now that my mini excited rant is over, lets get on to this awesome haul!

Today’s post is short & sweet so I hope you don’t mind.

I don’t know about y’all but I love to watch and read anything back-to-school related. I also love watching and reading haul videos and posts. Combine back-to-school with hauls and I’m sold.

3 Simple Ways to Drink More Water

Three easy ways to drink more water. Drinking water is a easy way to be more healthy.

We all know that water is good for us, right? We all know that we probably don’t drink enough water. We all know that we should drink more water, but a majority of us never get around to it. Drinking more water usually ends up on people’s New Year’s resolutions as a part of their goal to be healthier in the new year. And just like most New Year’s resolutions, they disappear by the end of January.

I know people who never drink water. They survive off of juice, sodas, teas, and coffee. Anything and everything but water because they “don’t like water.”

You don’t like water? You mean you don’t like the substance that provides life and makes up 60% of your body?

Worth the Splurge: College Essentials

Essential college items worth the splurge.

My friends Gabby and Hannah over at The Swirl Blog published THIS amazing post the other week, and I thought to myself, “Oh my gosh I need to do one of these, too!” Hannah included some amazing essential college items definitely worth the splurge, so I thought I’d add on to her selections.

My most popular post to date, Buy This, Not That: College Dorm Edition, came out around this time last year, and if you haven’t read it yet, I highly suggest you do. I cover everything that those college guides tell you you should buy, but in reality you either don’t need them, or there are much better, cheaper alternatives out there!
