A Day Out Biking ft. Jilla Active

Senior year has been a complete whirlwind - college applications, my 5 APs, working on my Instagram page - I got a little too caught up with everything that I completely skipped blogging last month. I've been trying to better myself amidst this chaos, trying to find some sense of clarity. After a short hiatus, I'm finally back at it, doing what I love most :). Also, a mini update before I get into the bulk of the post - last month was my birthday month! I'll be combining my birthday post/haul with my black Friday haul, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

To be completely honest, after school started, I've started working out a lot less and eating less healthy than I used to. That's not a good sign! Luckily, now that my UK college applications and EA schools are done, I can start getting back into my regular routine. This past weekend, I went out biking around my area in an effort to re-motivate myself. Jilla Active was generous enough to hook me up with some super cute activewear, which only served to pushed me to start exercising even more. I'll be reviewing a few items from them today!

All Prepped Up

It's been a while--again.

I never really anticipated senior year to be this busy, but it is really, really busy. I felt like the first week kinda skewed my expectation of how much homework we were going to have. After the first week, homework hit me like a bus out of nowhere. I'm piled up chest-deep in work and college apps and club stuff and meetings and I honestly can't catch a break. One week just feels so long and tiring. 

But I'm back, and I'm happy to share with you my latest outfit! I wore this last week, because I was feeling preppy and cool :P.

Back To School Update + Giveaway!

*Giveaway is at the end of this post <3

I'm so sorry I missed a post this month but I'm only human right? D: I update tumblr almost everyday though, so check me out there (its linked here and at the sidebar).

I've been really busy lately with this past summer being the summer before senior year, so I was really caught up with essays and summer homework. I also had an internship at a local university for the entire two months, so I actually didn't have much of a summer (7am-7pm work time).

Fitness: A Lifestyle

It's not something all of us enjoy doing, but I'm sure most of us lust after its results.

Yes, we all know what I'm talking about: working out.

It's summer, and a lot of us prefer to lounge around the house, eat chips and cookies whilst watching Netflix with the AC on full blast. But it's summer, and summer means pool parties and beaches and swimsuits. Now we're getting nervous. You definitely don't want your chips-and-salsa filled belly making an appearance at your pool party!

Staying fit can be a hard feat for some of you, which I totally understand--I've been in your position before. Whether you want to lose weight or tone yourself up, you must understand that staying fit is a full-time job, meaning you can't do an intense "5-day bikini workout" and go from couch potato to swimwear model in a week. I know, I know. Sounds crappy right? Motivation often dies down after a month or two. That is why today I'm going to share with you all my favourite workout tips that will hopefully make (or keep) you guys motivated to stay healthy.

Cinnamon Apple Roses

A dash of cinnamon, a whiff of apple, embodied in a beautifully shaped rose. 

What's not to love?

 I know I said I'll be making a Q & A for my next blog post, but I'm saving that for something special :). Stay tuned! 

I love roses--especially red ones--but recently I found a type of rose that might supersede my love for red roses: cinnamon apple roses. These little apple-pie-esque bites are perfect for a picnic or brunch, and fulfil that sugar craving we have once in a while.
