August Recap & Chit Chat

Okay so I know it’s seeming like I’m doing chit chat posts every other week, but I swear this trend isn’t going to continue. This month has just been insane and I want to keep y’all updated on everything! Although I do love chit chat posts, I don’t want them to just become ‘filler’ content for y’all. So, I’m limiting myself to around one a month.

For the future, I’m going to be doing chit chat posts at the end of each month where I’ll be talking about my month and covering my blog stats for said month. I did one of these at the end of July, and y’all loved it so I’m bringing them back every month. I love being transparent with y’all, and these monthly recaps and chit chats are my favorite way to do so!

The Simplicity of Meal Prep

Eating healthy in college doesn't have to be hard. Meal prepping makes it easy, and here's how to do it. | college meal prep

I think there’s a huge misunderstanding when it comes to eating healthy in college. College is supposed to be the time of parties, pizza, alcohol, and junk food 24/7, right? At least that’s how all the movies portray “the best four years of our lives.”

There’s also a huge misunderstanding when it comes to eating healthy on a budget. It can’t possibly be done. “Unhealthy”, processed, pre-packaged foods are *apparently* way cheaper than fresh veggies, chicken, and rice. But, I’m pretty sure that isn’t true.

Let’s Talk Media Kits

Having a media kit is essential for any size blogger. Learn how I made mine, what to include, and where to find design inspo!

This isn’t my usual fitness or college type of content, but I do post about blogging tips & tricks on here from time to time because after all, this blog takes up 85% of my free time. That other 15% is spent with my cat or watching YouTube videos, but let’s not talk about that.

A few weeks ago I posted a boomerang on my Insta story of my media kit that I had just revamped and finished. Surprisingly, I had several people reply to that story and ask about the media kit, how I made it, what to include, and all that jazzy stuff. Well I’m here to tell y’all all about how I made my media kit, what I included, my inspiration, and what my prior media kits looked like as well.

What’s In My Gym Bag

Gym Bag Essentials | Get the most out of your workout by having everything you need in your gym bag. Here's what I keep in my gym bag to have the best workouts!

Good morning! I think I start out all of my posts this way, but I’m absolutely stoked for today’s post. It’s been on my list of posts to write for a good long while, but I haven’t felt exactly ready to share what’s in my gym bag. Now, my bag is complete, and I’ve figured out exactly what I need to have amazing workouts and avoid that “oh shoot how did I forget that” moment.

If you are a gym goer and a have a gym bag, I think you understand what I mean by that one. It takes awhile to narrow down what you like and don’t like to keep in your bag. From equipment to food, let’s dive right in to what I’m lugging 20 minutes campus on a daily basis that make my workouts so much better.

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.
