How I prep for the week //

Hi there! So I think one of the best ways to have a good week is to plan ahead and prepare for the week. So here is how I prepare for the upcoming week, feel free to use these tips! Let's get into it.

1.) write/ check planner
I honestly don't know what I would do without my planner. I write everything in it from blog things, school stuff, and social commitments. So every Sunday I write what I have upcoming for the week and then check and see what I have already written for the week,

2.) getting food for the week// 
Usually, Sunday or Monday is when my family and I write out one big grocery list and go pick up the items we need for lunch prep along with breakfast and dinner. It's really helpful that way we really don't have to go to the grocery store during the week.

3.) Plan out outfits// 
I like to pick my outfits the night before since it saves me extra time in the morning. I don't plan out every outfit I wear during the week, but I will pick out my outfits about 2 days in advance

4.) Clean room/bathroom
Normally during the week, I do not really make enough time to clean out my room for a long period of time so I make use of the weekend to do that. So I put things away back where they belong and wash laundry and what not. 

5.) plan out food for the week//
Now I do not do this every week, but I think it's a good idea to write out either in a journal or your phone, recipes or your meals you would like to have either for every meal of the day or just lunch/dinner. I find this really helpful that way you have a general idea of what kind of food you want to eat for the week! 

I hope these tips helped! Until next time! -Gabby B.

uses for empty journals //

Hi friends!! So one of my favorite things to do is buying journals and finding different uses for them as well! I think writing in a journal is such a good way to unplug if needed and just write whatever you want. So today I thought I would share some uses for any empty journals you may have.

  • prayer journal
  • To-do lists
  • recipes
  • work-out journal (write down your favorite work-outs and keep track when you do)
  • daily diary
  • bucket-lists
  • dreams/big ideas
  • travel journal
  • sketches
  • calligraphy/ hand-lettering
  • random ( basically whatever you want: grocery lists, pro/con lists, etc.)

Well I hope this gave you some ideas on different uses for any journals you have laying around or purchased, so until next time! -Gabby B.

Things I'm currently loving

Hi there! So lately I have been loving some new items and music, and decided to share some of them! So here we go! 

1.) Larabar: okay so it took me many moons to find a favorite Larabar flavor, and now I am happy to say that has become the apple pie flavor!  lf I could I would eat a bunch of these a day. If you haven't tried the apple pie Larabar, then definitely do, it won't disappoint.

2,) Starbuck's caramel macchiato: For my birthday I had a lot of money in Starbucks gift cards. So I tried a caramel macchiato and absolutely fell in love with it! It's so good, it is definitely one of my faves now. 

3.) Espadrilles
I can't express how much I love my espadrilles and just these shoes in general! They're so comfy and cute. Plus a perfect fashion staple for this upcoming spring. 

4.) Lisa Sawyer- Leon Bridges

Finding your personal style

Hi there! Fashion is a very important part of my life. I love styling my outfits each day and finding new style inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram. Through doing things like this is how I found what my style is and what kind of types of fashion trends I like more. So I thought why not share a post on how to find your personal style. Whether that be bohemian, preppy, or edgy.
  Personally, I would say my style is classic with a bohemian twist. I am drawn to things that are timeless/vintage, but I also love floral prints and bohemian styles like flowy dresses and pants. You can see more of my style on my pinterest boards: style and classy  Some people I look to for style inspiration are Sarah Vickers(blogger), Lily Collins (actress), and Danielle Marie Carolan(youtube). So let's get to it! 

1.) See what inspires you
By this I mean what kind of outfits do you find yourself liking on Insta and pinning on Pinterest. Also what style icons could you possibly be looking to model your own fashion choices after. 

2.)Only think of you and what you like
Don't pick outfits or like certain styles just because "everybody" else does. If you like the same thing as a lot of other people because you truly do then good! If you start wearing things because it's "popular"  then you will never really able to see what you like. I have done this before and it wasn't fun. I am glad I got out of that habit. 

3.) Test out different things
If right off the bat, you aren't really sure what you like go to different stores and just try stuff on. Then see what you feel good in and really like, then boom you're on your way to finding your own style. 

Well, I surely hope these tips helped! Who are some of your fashion inspirations? Until next time! -Gabby B.
