Stop Feeling Guilty for Putting Yourself First

Hey y'all!

Long time, no chat, right? Well, today's topic covers the reason why I haven't posted in a hot minute. I didn't want to post something just because I felt like I had to post something. I didn't want to put up some half-assed piece that talked about the summer's hottest trends. I didn't even really want to post something inspiring either. I just didn't want to take the time to write anything.



How I Afford Luxury Brands with a College Girl's Budget

Hey y'all!

I'm the type of girl that would rather spend $20 on a margarita and a burrito than on a t-shirt. For some reason, it is so much easier for me to justify spending money on good food rather than "wasting it" on something I probably will wear a maximum of 10 times.

Being in college, I rarely (and I really do mean rarely) dress up. Unless it's formal chapter or I'm trying to take a cute pic for Instagram, then I can be found wearing an XL comfort colors shirt with either black Lululemon leggings or Nike shorts.

My All-Time Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe

Hey y'all!

Green smoothies get a bad rap. Whether you think they taste too much like grass or feel like you're biting into a bunch of kale, I want to promise you that not all green smoothies are created equally.

Last year, I finally bought one of those frozen packs to make your own smoothies at home. I was feeling adventurous and bought one that was Jamba Juice brand for a green smoothie. I had it sitting in my freezer for a month before I finally decided to try it out. Spoiler: I. Loved. It.

I think what's off-putting to a lot of people is the color. Why would you expect something sweet out of something that looks like the green slime off of Nickelodeon? The trick is to cover up the green taste with powerful tasting fruits (banana, mango, pineapple, etc)!


How I Travel with Pets (And How You Can Too!)

Hey y'all!

I'm a 21-year-old college student with two pets. It's a little hectic at times, but I wouldn't trade it for the world! I have a 20 lb cat and a 5 lb dog (yep, you read that right). Both of them have traveled a ton and I'd like to think that I have a pretty good routine down.

Now that I'm thinking about it, they've both been to 7 states, and I've only had my dog for 4 months. And most of the time that I'm traveling, I'm usually doing it solo. So if you're heading on vacay soon and want to take your fluffy friend with you, seriously, take my advice.

Also, just for reference since I will be talking about them a lot -- Denny is my cat and Peanut is my dog!
