A Girls Guide To Surviving College....

Recently this week school started back again, which means more stress and more organization. This year I will be graduating so the stress is a little high for me. I thought it would be interesting to share some of my top essentials that have helped me with surviving college now.

1.  I know this sounds so cheesy but have a planner really helped me stay organized in college. I remember in elementary school when they started given us planner I did not quite grasp the concept of how to use it. But let me tell ya I don't know how I will stay sane without a planner. I normally color code each subject with a different pen color. Right now I have been using Lily Pulitzer Agenda, but I find that any agenda works as long as you make it yours.

2. Note-cards are also one of my most need essentials. If you are going into a medical field or any field my professor stressed the importance of having note-cards where you can go back and study. They have personally helped me with studying for my test and remember a lot of math formulas. And as a bonus they even have cute little cases where you can store the card. As I further my degree into becoming an RN I know they will help with memorizing medical terminology and ect.

3. Time-management is another big essential, in college you have to manage your time wisely or you will fall behind. Personally I work and go to college so I have to really value my time and make sure I get assignments turned in on time, go to work on time, and balance my social life. Sure at first it seems like a challenge, but I promise once you get down a routine everything will fall into place.

4.  FOOD !!!!
5.  There are some more of my essential must haves for college in the picture above.

Back to School Haul (2018)

Hey guys today I thought I would show you some of my school supplies for this upcoming semester. I am a pre-nursing student so a lot of the items I purchased are mainly for organization. The classes I am taking is Human Anatomy and Physiology 2 with lab and Pharmacology. This semester will be a lot of heavy material , memorization and reading. So I hope you enjoy what I picked out for this semester. 

Summer Curly Natural Hair Must Haves ( Summer 2018)

1. Invest in a good conditioner it doesn't have to be expensive , I like to use Garnier Whole Blend Restoring Conditioner in the scent Maple Remedy. I find that with this conditioner it deeply nourishes my hair and retains moisture. 

2. Get a good leave in conditioner, I normally switch between the Curls Blueberry Bliss and Garnier Curl Nourish Butter-cream. I like both of them and they both smell good buts its all preference and what works best for your hair. 
3. In the summer time I do not like to put a lot of tension on my hair so I switch to using scrunchies instead of hair ties. I find that my hair is still secure without the tension.

4. When I do a wash and go I love to use Miss Jessie's Coily Custard for the summer time , its easy to apply and throw your hair in a pony.
5. I also apply coconut oil to my hair each night before bed when I put my hair in a protective style. I find that it moisturizes my hair and my hair feels soft and more manageable in the morning. 

Back to School Haul 2018 (Planner Edition)

Hey guys today I will be showing you some of the planners I picked up for the semester. And I will be showing some of the planner accessories as well. This semester I picked up three planners , I know thats too many planners but I have my reasoning's.  The first planner that I picked up was the Lilly Pulitzer planner its convenient for my job but as far as school there isn't a lot of space to work with especially being a nursing student.

The second planner I picked up was the Green Botanical , this planner has a lot of space to write in and plus there is extra pages in the back . I will be using this planner for school .

The third planner I purchased was this one , I am not sure of the name but I got it from Micheals. It is similar to the Happy Planner and I will be using it as my everyday planner .
