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.

Fall Natural Hair Must Haves (Blogtober 17)

Lately I have been experimenting with different hair products to provide the right moisture for my hair. Today I will be discussing some of my favorite natural hair must haves for fall. And with the weather changing I normally keep my hair in a protective styloe for the most part. 
1. Coconut Oil - I love to seal in the moisture with coconut oil .  Its affordable and last a long time , a little goes a long way.  2. Castor Oil- Every night I love to massage my hair with castor oil , to promote hair growth and stimulate my scalp. 
3. Conditioning Grease- I use a small amount to add moisture to my hair and my hair stays soft and moisturized.  4. Gel- I use the Shea Moisture to lock in the moisture and this gel does not flake up either. 5. Conditioner- For conditioner I use the Tresseme brand  , its affordable and does the job.
I dont like to use a lot of hair products in my regimen and I normally will wash my hair once a week and moisturize daily . What are your favorite hair must haves…

Blogtober 12 Fall Bucketlist and Aspirations

Here are a couple things I want to challenge myself to do this fall. I really want to get into the habit of making goals(bucket list ) of things I want to achieve and vision myself doing it. So without further ado here are some of my ideas for my fall bucketlist and aspirations :
1. Have a Disney Halloween throwback marathon of all my favorite childhood movies. And if you want you can do it with friends while baking or crafting.
2. Go to a pumpkin patch , I know this is kind of cheesy but I really want to take pictures in the pumpkin patch. And also go through a corn maze and pick out pumpkins. Here in Arizona we have an Apple Annie's and during the fall they have a variety of fall festivities going on.
3. Get into the habit of reading more, I feel like majority of the time I spend way to much time on my cell phone or to much watching tv. Its a nice treat every once in a while, and I feel like reading help you to be intellectual because you are learning new words.
4. Go for eveni…
