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!



The 10 Best Podcasts for a Road Trip

Hey y'all!

Next week is spring break (at least for me)!!! Michael and I are heading to Texas to road-trip around the state. We're hitting San Antonio and Dallas while we're there and I'm so so excited. Instead of trying to scan the radio for a new station every 10 minutes or trying to muddle through Spotify's ads, we prefer to listen to podcasts! 

I know that there are plenty of other people that are always looking for new podcasts to listen to, so I figured that I would share some of my favorites with y'all! I definitely want to find some more podcasts to get into, so be sure to share yours down in the comments!
