18 Things That Happened in 2018

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Finals are finally over-- and I'm finally able to submerge myself back into the blogging world. I wanted to kick off the end of the year with a blog post on 18 things that happened in 2018. Usually, I talk about my accomplishments, but the truth is: there are ups and downs. 


Here are 18 things that happened in 2018:

1. I toured some colleges in Florida with my family.

My sister is planning to further her education at Florida Southern College, where she wants to study business and political science. And, I already miss her like crazy.

2. Not only did I experience a concert in the pit, but I experienced Taylor Swift's Reputation tour from that view.

It was one of the most incredible nights of my life. As Taylor would say, it was gorgeous.

3. I also saw Charlie Puth perform.

One word: shirtless. If you ever get the chance to see him in concert, do it! He sounds amazing!

4. I had my first real breakup.

As much as I don't want to discuss this on a public platform, I would like to add it to my list. It happened. And, more importantly, it helped shape who I am today. I am constantly reminded that things happen for a reason.

5. I took my first ever college level science class and got an A.

This one in itself deserves an applause.

6. I made the Dean's List. And the President's List.

Hard work pays off! This past semester I got a 4.0, taking the maximum amount of credits. I've never worked so hard in my life.

7. I found my passion.

I love working with immigrants. I want to be a psychologist for immigrants and help them overcome trauma. I want to help them find themselves. I want to help them self-actualize. I am so passionate about this topic that I am planning on conducting research about immigrants and self-actualization during my senior year at Cabrini University.

8. I hit 120,000 views on my blog.

I know, I know.. my blog has definitely been slacking. But, thanks to y'all, I reached 120,000 views. Thank you so much for your support. (Stay tuned for giveaways in 2019!)

9. I went to Washington, D.C. to advocate for immigration reform.

If there is anything I learned this semester it's to advocate. Advocate for what you believe in.

10. I attended a protest to shut down Berks County Residential Center.

#ShutDownBerks

11. I was inducted into Delta Epsilon Sigma.

Did I mention hard work pays off? Always, always, always go the extra mile.

12. I began teaching English as a second language (ESL).

And absolutely love it! I think I would like to pursue this as a career someday.

13. I toured a few small towns in South Carolina.

And, I tasted the most amazing bread-- covered in cheese and butter and Heaven.

14. I adopted a workout schedule and kept with it.

This was definitely on the harder side, but I did it! I found a kick butt workout that really activates your legs and core. I've never loved my body shape so much. #WhatsWrongWithBeingConfident

15. I completed my first year of college, and second, and third.

I have never been so proud of a decision I've made. Cabrini University has given me so many opportunities that I wouldn't have been able to receive anywhere else.

16. I supported my mom at her graduation.

My mom received a certificate for leadership. She continues to be an inspiration to me everyday.

17. My family went to New York and saw Niagara Falls.

Just a mini family vacay, but I enjoyed it. It was nice to get away for a little while.

18. My grandma conquered her cancer treatments.

Above all, my grandma was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of ovarian cancer and she received treatment for it for the past couple of months. To say the least: she rocked it. I couldn't imagine being in her shoes. But, by what I've seen, I can tell you it's extremely difficult. Her will to keep fighting was definitely an inspiration to not only my family, but other members who attended the cancer center. If the world had half as much optimism as she does, this world would be a beautiful place.

My 2018 Christmas Wishlist

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! 

I know it's been quite some time since I posted a blog post. Don't worry; I'm working towards solidifying a set schedule. In this blog post, I'm going to be sharing My 2018 Christmas Wishlist with y'all. The things on my list are definitely a lot more practical than they have been in past years. This year, I'm asking for makeup, skincare, and comfy clothes. 



If you know me, you know I love Kate Spade New York designs. I think her designs are so classy and elegant. I've been eyeing up this lunch bag since the summer. Since I'm going to be commuting to college next year, I wanted to invest in a quality lunch bag.


Before I went to college, I purchased a cheap rain coat from Kohl's. Don't get me wrong, I love it. However, it doesn't hold up too well when it's raining cats and dogs. I want to invest in a better quality rain jacket that will last me forever.


I have never loved a concealer as much as I love this one. Not to mention, I'm definitely in need of a new one. I think this will be my third, maybe fourth bottle? #GoBuyIt


Because of how satisfied I was with the concealer, I wanted to put Makeup Revolution's blushers to the test. These colors are absolutely gorgeous-- aren't they?


Again, putting Makeup Revolution to the test: I wanted to see if this is comparable to Urban Decay's All-Nighter Setting Spray-- for $8 this would be a steal.


Not only am I in desperate need of a new foundation, but I've heard such great reviews about this one. If any of you guys have tried this foundation, let me know what you think! 


I've been using this cleanser for ages and love it! It has helped even out my complexion without over drying it. 


I found these brightening pads while browsing Ulta Beauty online. I think they would be so much fun to try out before a big event, like a dance or graduation.


I've had my eyes on these for the past couple of months. I am all about going to class in a comfy, yet cute outfit. These sweatpants will get me through-- plus, who doesn't love school spirit? #GoCavs


To be honest, I'm not much of an eyeshadow guru. However, I think these shades are natural enough for me to pull off. I also think they're absolutely gorgeous!


After a long week, this is my go to solution for banishing breakouts. It draws out all of the gunk from your pores. My pores not only tighten, but my skin looks super glowy. 


Who doesn't love mascara? Rumor has it: this mascara is supposed to be a dupe for the Better Than Sex mascara. And, I, like all other makeup addicts, love this mascara.


I have two hats: a Cabrini University one and a monogrammed one. I would love to add to my collection.


The perfect addition to any self-care evening. I think these would be so fun to try out!

18 Things I'm Thankful For in 2018

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!



Don't worry: I know we all have final exams that we need to start studying for and Christmas lists we need to shop for, so I'll keep it short. Here are 18 things that I am thankful for this holiday season:

Bloggers.

For saying what you want, how you want, when you want it. I think it's incredibly brave.

Determination.

For helping me overcome difficult obstacles and go after my dreams.

Peter Thomas Roth Detox Cucumber Cleanser.

For keeping my skin under control-- even when I have two exams and a paper due the next day.

Real friends.

For supporting me and loving me.

The people that stand by me at protests for shutting down detention centers.

I attended a vigil to shut down Berks County Residential Center, a detention center for undocumented immigrants. It was extremely eyeopening. Read more about it here.

Fate.

For bringing me where I am today. I have met so many people who I wouldn't have crossed paths with otherwise. These people have expanded my views and helped shape the person I am today.

Pearl earrings.

For making me look classy even in yoga pants.

Cabrini University.

For giving me a quality education. I love learning and I love experiencing new things.

Sunshine.

Warm, sunny days will forever be my favorite.

My right to vote.

I think it is so important to voice your opinion through taking part in elections. Be the change.

Taylor Swift.

For writing a song that you can relate to at any point in a relationship-- from the honey moon stage to the never ending breakup. #WANEGBT

Language.

Being able to communicate with people is a beautiful thing. (I'm almost done my Spanish minor-- woo hoo!)

Psychology.

Understanding the human mind is an incredible experience. I am currently enrolled in four psychology courses and they are mind blowing. I am always analyzing people in my daily life. (Yes, I know I probably shouldn't do that.)

The ability to help others.

I currently teach English as a second language (ESL) to at risk migrant children and I love how rewarding the work is. Every chance you get to help someone: do it.

Risks.

For teaching me confidence.

Love.

For teaching me that it exists.

Failures.

My dad always told me that one learns more in their failures than they do in their successes. Whether someone walks out of your life or you do poorly on a test, you learn from it. Those failures have taught me how to approach those same situations differently.

My family.

For being incredible. My family has always stood behind me, whether I want to protest an issue, blog about my favorite makeup brands, or pursue a different career path. If it weren't for my family, I wouldn't have been able to grow and develop into the best version of myself.

I wouldn't be:

  • Pursuing a college education, studying psychology and Spanish
  • Taking part in my college's honors program
  • Graduating a year and a half early
  • Teaching English as a second language (ESL)
  • Running a blog that has 100,000+ views
  • Working with 50+ companies
  • Being inducted into Delta Epsilon Sigma (DES)
  • Advocating for immigration reform in the United States
  • Growing my confidence

Thank you so much to my family. I couldn't be more thankful for the love and support they give me. What are you thankful for? Are you thankful for your ex like Ariana? Or, are you simply thankful for a nice home cooked meal-- I know I am! Comment below!


20 Things I Learned Before I Turned 20

I'm officially 20-- and, yes, I feel old! Last week was a blast! I woke up to confetti sprinkled around my bedroom floor and sticky notes all over my bathroom door. I also woke up to instagrams, tweets, and snaps from you guys! Thank you all so much for remembering me on my birthday! It means the world to me. XOXO


1. Comparing yourself to others is a waste of time.

Everyone is unique. Don't waste your energy analyzing and contrasting yourself to others. It's overrated.

2. Always do your best.

Always give your all-- no matter what the event is.

3. People are people.

We are all humans regardless of our backgrounds. Those fleeing their home countries and coming to the United States are seeking a better life. Click here to read more about the caravan.

4. Everything happens for a reason.

I am a huge believer in this. Every person that I've met has had an influence on me in some way, shape, or form. Whether they motivated me to do something out of comfort zone or think differently about a topic.

5. Priorities are a must.

In order to be successful, you need to keep your priorities in check.

6. Don't force a relationship.

Things that aren't meant to be, aren't meant to be.

7. Mom and Dad are always right.

Even when you swear they're ruining your life.

8. Do the things you want to do.

A few years ago, I was pressured to think a certain way.

9. Stand up for yourself and what you believe in.

In high school, I would have had a heart attack if I had to stand up for myself and/or what I believe in. College has taught me that it's okay to stand up for what I believe in. I now write state and federal letters regarding immigration reform.

10. Drama doesn't matter.

High school never ends. As my mom would say, "Be like Elsa and let it go."

11. You have to work to get what you want.

Sometimes you need to indulge in some mozzarella sticks and study for 3 hours in the library to get an A on a social psychology exam.

12. Material possessions aren't everything.

Material possessions are nice. However, when it comes to the point where they're consuming your life you need to reevaluate your priorities and values.

13. Honesty is the best policy.

Sometimes the truth hurts. But, it's better than being caught in a lie down the road.

14. Give back.

I have classes Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, I like to give back to the community and teach ESL to at-risk child migrants. And, I love it! It is one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had.

15. Falling in love isn't a choice.

You meet people when you least expect it. And, it takes you by surprise.

16. Picking out a first date outfit is harder than calculous homework.

I've been on several first dates and each one, without fail, has resulted in my closet spitting up all over my bedroom floor.

17. Trust your gut.

After I toured Cabrini University, I knew it was the school for me. I knew I would be successful in any major I chose.

18. Vote.

Voting is so important. Make a difference.

19. Knowledge is power.

My dad has been saying this to me since first grade. It wasn't until this past September when I realized what it truly means. I am currently pursing degrees in psychology and Spanish. I am using these degrees to learn more about the immigrant population and how I can help them and make a difference. That's powerful.

20. Be proud of yourself.

I think it's totally cool if you want to play a Taylor Swift song and jam out because of something you've accomplished. Go for it!

It's Fall, Y'all!


It's fall, y'all!

Pumpkin spice lattes are officially back in stock at Starbucks-- it's officially fall! I am loving the cozy, snuggling weather. I've moved all of my J. Crew sweaters and boot socks to the front of my wardrobe. Are you guys loving this fall weather too?

Back to the blog.

One of the more exciting aspects of my life that I want to note: I am officially back to the blogging game! For those of you that don't know, in the middle of July I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. Doctor's orders: lots of rest. 

Now that I am back, I am planning on doing more blog posts geared towards not only my college life, but my personal life too. There are. So. Many. Things. I want to talk about.

I started my junior year of college.

They weren't kidding when they said junior year was the hardest year. I am taking 6 classes: PSY 202, PSY 204, PSY 271, PSY 305, ECG 300 (Immigration), and SPA 210. On top of that, I am a member of the Spanish club. I have classes Monday through Thursday, and on Fridays I occupy my time with homework and volunteer opportunities. Definitely booked! (But, I like to keep a busy schedule; it keeps me out of trouble.)

I love my classes.

Like I mentioned earlier, I am taking four psychology classes, 1 class on immigration, and a Spanish class geared towards psych majors. I am absolutely in love with all of my classes! I am especially fascinated with my Personality Theories class. I have analyzed myself and my previous relationships over and over again. This class makes sense of everything! I am also really enjoying my Social Psychology class. I adore my professor and the subject matter. If you ever get the opportunity to take one of these classes (even if you're not a psychology major), take them!

Career goals.

As a junior in college, I have began thinking about my desired career path. The options are truly endless. However, I am planning on going into clinical psychology where I will focus on the immigrant population. Currently, I am looking to apply to a graduate program. Life is going by so fast!





I Love What I Wear | Confidence & Fashion

When I was "growing up," (I say that as if I've stopped growing up) I went through several different fashion phases. During 6th grade, I went through a tomboy phase-- and not the cute kind. Yikes! In 9th grade, I thought I was an Abercrombie & Fitch model. And, during my senior year, Aerie yoga pants were the only thing I came to know.

Transitioning from high school to college was one of, if not the easiest transitions of my life-- style wise. I wear what I want, when I want, how I want.

The LWD

I've always adored the little white dress; they're timeless. I purchased this one for my high school graduation-- and I've used every opportunity to where it since.


All The Colors

Over the years, I fell in love with Lilly Pulitzer. Her designs are bright and girly. I am bound to make a statement wherever I go. And, I love that.



Pom-Poms

I love tassels. And, I love pom-poms. They're so trendy and fun! Anything with a tassel or a pom-pom has my name written on it!

These are just some of my clothing pieces I go to. I feel the most confident when I'm wearing something that is girly and fun, yet flattering to my body type.

Question of the Day: What's your favorite clothing piece in your wardrobe? A LBD? Or, maybe a fun pair of rain boots? Comment below!

How To Become The Best Version of Yourself

I am so excited about today's blog post; I am helping Vanessa promote her new fitness blog: www.simplehealthhuman.com. It's one of my favorites!!


Over the past couple of months, I've been inspired to be a better version of myself. With that being said, here are some of my tips in order to work towards being the best version of yourself:

Create a feel good playlist.

Music has incredible powers. Instead of listening to sad songs like "Babe" by Sugarland ft. Taylor Swift on repeat, listen to "Can't Stop The Feeling" by J.T. Oh, and "Love Myself" by Hailee Steinfeld! That's one of my favorites.

Exercise.

Create a workout plan and stick to it. The creating part is the fun part, whereas the actually sticking to it is the hard part. Once you get into a groove, you won't be able to get out of it. I actually use this app called 7M Women (#NotSponsored). They have a variety of exercises that only take 7 minutes. And, yes, I have seen results. (If you're not into the whole sets and reps thing, try a dance workout! Click here to watch my favorite dance workout!)

Sample Workout (Leg Day):

  • 0.5 Miles in 10 Minutes
  • Tabata Body (7MW)
  • Stretch
  • 7 Minute Butt x3 (7MW)
  • 50 Squats
  • 50 Calf Raises
  • 50 Banded Walks (25 each leg)
  • Post Workout Stretch Routine in 10-15 Minutes


Buy something new.

#TreatYoSelf, Girl! You deserve it. Buy that Kate Spade wallet you've been yearning for, or buy those LuluLemon leggings you've been eyeing up since January.

Try something new.

I've been taking up yoga since the year began. (My best friend actually suggested we try it since my college offers free classes.) I ended up really enjoying it. This summer, I've been following along with YouTube videos and Pinterest poses. This upcoming semester, I'm hoping to fit not only yoga into my schedule, but pilates or kickboxing. Trying something new is empowering.

Cut the negative people out of your life.

After I graduated high school, I let go of friendships and relationships that I found toxic. Being constantly surrounded by negative energy left me feeling angry and miserable. Once I got to college, I found a group of friends with positive vibes that totally changed my life.

Drink lots of water.

Lots and lots. Victoria's Secret models drink a gallon a day. (I think that's a little overkill, but if you can do it, you rock!) I've been drinking between 48 oz. and 72 oz. a day. It's done wonders for my body!

Indulge in things you love.

I love to dance. And, I love to work. I love to help others and volunteer for local organizations. I enjoy spending time with my family and playing silly board game like Trivia Pursuit. Do things you love. Life is too short to not be doing what you love doing.


It's so important to be mentally and physically healthy. Put yourself first. Always. As cliche as it sounds: live everyday like it's your last.

Ana Luisa Jewelry Review

Welcome back to my blog, everyone!!

Today, I'm sharing one of my new favorite jewelry brands with y'all: Ana Luisa NY. Ana Luisa is a designer jewelry company. (Some of Ana Luisa's designers have worked for various famous brands like Tory Burch and Ralph Lauren-- two of my favorites!!) Their jewelry is not only high-quality, but also unique. Ana Luisa only releases a limited quantity in order to ensure each piece is exclusive.






Ana Luisa Jewelry sent me these adorable teardrop earrings. They add the perfect touch to any outfit for any occasion. You can dress them up or down depending on the look you're going for. (That's my favorite part about these earrings!) Morning brunch with your family or prom night-- you decide!



They also sent me this layered chain necklace. Which again, can be dressed up or down depending on the look you're going for. I decided to pair it with this floral romper from Hollister for a daytime look. But, you can also pair it with your LBD for a Saturday night on the town with your bae. I love the versatility! 



I am absolutely in love with these jewelry pieces. I've been experimenting; wearing the jewelry with a number of different outfits. I'm planning on wearing these two pieces to an Honors Convocation in the fall, and I'm also planning on letting my sister borrow the precious duo for her prom. I feel so gorgeous in these pieces. They're handmade, high-quality pieces that will never go out of style. Checkout Ana Luisa Jewelry for the latest fashion jewelry trends!

Question of the Day: What's your favorite way to accessorize?

How To Ace Your Summer Course

I am the queen of summer courses. I've been taking them since the summer before my junior year of high school. I've taken: Introduction to Sociology 101, Introduction to Psychology 101, Public Speaking 101, and recently Concepts of Biology 120. I'm a pro at this! Did I mentioned I got all A's?

In this blog post, you'll learn how to ace your fast paced summer course too!


Get a planner!

Step number one of any task should be to get out your planner. Currently, I am using my Lilly Pulitzer Jumbo agenda. It's important to stay on top of your course material and all of your other summer hobbies.

Go over the syllabus.

The first thing I always do for a class is look over the syllabus. Then, I put all important dates into my planner. Note, during the summer sessions, I've found that most instructors don't always stick to the syllabus. It's hard to judge for 2-4 hours of time, when they usually only have an hour and a half.

Go over the lecture BEFORE class.

Like I mentioned earlier, I took Concepts of Biology this summer. And, I'm not going to lie, biology is not my strongest subject. I read the lecture beforehand to get my feet wet. This way, it was easier for me to follow along when my professor was talking about peptide bonds.

Do the homework as soon as it's assigned.

Don't wait until the last minute to do your homework. Chances are you'll fall behind very quickly.

Find some friends-- fast!

This semester I was pretty fortunate to make some quick friends. (But, hey, in biology, you need some friends to help you get through the labs and pop quizzes.) We compared notes and made study guides for the exam. Super helpful!

Try your best.

Yeah, yeah, yeah! I know. Cliche. But, it's true. If you put in the effort, you'll see it in the results.


Question of the Day: Have you ever taken a summer course? If so, which one(s)?

A Preppy Girl's Packing List

Hey there, Prepsters!

In about a month, I am going to be vacationing in South Carolina. I've never been there before, so I'm super excited! (If you have any must-sees or must-dos, comment them down below!) With that being said, I am starting to make a mental packing list.


Here's what I plan on bringing with me on my summer vacay:

Hunter For Target Duffle Bag

When the Hunter For Target collection was first released, I dragged my mom to the nearest Targets. Unfortunately, most of the totes were over picked. However, I did get my hands on a duffel bag, which is the perfect size for a week long vacation.

Comfortable Clothes

Comfortable clothes are key, especially if you're going to be doing lots of walking (like me). Some of my favorite things to pack:
  • Nike Shorts
  • Under Armor Shorts
  • Khaki Shorts
  • White Capris
  • Leggings
  • Vineyard Vines Tees
  • Simply Southern Tees
  • College Tees
  • Shift Dresses (Lilly Pulitzer)
  • One pice suit
  • Bikini
  • Cover up
2, Maybe 3 Pairs of Shoes (If Your Mom Isn't Looking)

My parents have a rule of only bringing two pairs of shoes: a pair of sneakers and a pair of flip flops. As far as I'm concerned, a pair of boat shoes is also needed. Who's with me? 

Sunnies

Clearly the most important item in your duffel/suitcase! I have a pair of Tory Burch sunnies that I couldn't imagine living without. They're classic!

Makeup Bag With ALL The Essentials
  • Primer
  • BB Cream
  • Concealer
  • Powder
  • Eyebrow Gel
  • Mascara
  • Blush
  • Highlighter
  • Lip gloss (x3)
  • Setting Spray

Tote Bag

A tote bag is great for traveling! You can stuff snacks, a water bottle, wallet, etc. in it. I'm bringing my Michael Kors tote. It holds the perfect amount of "stuff!" (Plus, if you're traveling via plane, it makes a great carry-on!)

Some Miscellaneous Items
  • Laptop
  • Laptop Charger
  • Phone
  • Phone Charger
  • Headphones
  • Camera
That's just about everything I'm bringing, besides the boring stuff like deodorant and toothpaste. Comment below what you must have in your suitcase! (Oh, and let me know if you would like to see a South Carolina travel diary!)

2018 Summer Bucket List

Happy Summer Sunshine, Y'all!

Today's blog post is a bit more casual. I'm going to be sharing my goals for this summer. I organized my goals into four different categories: Personal, Blog/Social Media, Education, and Fitness.



PERSONAL

Stick to a consistent sleep schedule.

Next semester I have a few early classes. I want to start getting into the routine of waking up for those early 8:00 AM classes.

Wake up early.

The early bird catches the worm. Isn't that what they say?

Travel somewhere.

I want to go somewhere I've never been before. And, I'm actually going to South Carolina. I'm so excited!

Plan a romantic summer date.

Maybe a picnic? Leave some ideas in the comments below!

Write more.

I want to journal more. I really enjoy it.

BLOG/SOCIAL MEDIA

Make a video.

Maybe I'll make a travel video or something? I don't know, I'm still playing around with making videos on my blog. However, I do enjoy it!

Hit 140,000 page views.

Help a sister out!

Work with at least five companies.

Last semester, I took a break from working with companies-- and I kind of totally regret it. But, it was really difficult for me to balance my blog with my school work.

EDUCATION

Take a summer class.

I am currently taking a biology course at my community college. Oh, boy! (It's gonna be a rough one!)

Read a book.

I just want to read something. Leave suggestions below!

Work on my Spanish.

So, I have officially decided I am going to try to minor in Spanish. I'm super excited!


FITNESS

Drink more water.

Drink. More. Water. We're gonna try this!

Workout 2-3 times a week.

At school, I worked out 3-4 times a week. It was great! However, I tend to slack off when I'm at home. So, hopefully I'll be able to stick to a consistent workout routine this summer.


Comment below: What's on your bucket list this summer?

Paperless Post Collaboration & Review

Welcome back to my blog, everyone!!

Before I get into today's blog post, I wanted to let y'all know that you can expect a blog post from me every Monday again. The spring semester is officially over-- and I can officially breathe again. I am so happy to be back into the swing of blogging again.

Without further ado, here's today's blog post, a collaboration with Paperless Post:


What is Paperless Post?

Paperless Post is an online platform in which users can design invitations, cards, and flyers. 


How does it work?

Users can purchase coins for their e-cards. In exchange for a few coins, you can put together your own e-card or flyer. Even the background of your card is customizable; it's so cool!

Collections

Personally, I am a huge fan of the kate spade new york collection. The collection includes a variety of birthday cards, thank you cards, wedding invitations, etc. 

This one has got to be my favorite: 




Though this card isn't from the kate spade new york collection, it's still super fun! I'll definitely be sending this card to my sister on her birthday, May 31st.




Just to sum it up for y'all, I am a huge fan of Paperless Post and the company's mission. It's easy and fun! I'm planning on sending some more e-cards to my friends and family this summer. I might even put together some flyers for an event. 

Thanks for reading!
