A Prep's Essentials for Surviving Finals

A Prep's Essentials for Surviving Finals

Between studying and taking exams, the time I spend on my appearance often lessens. During finals, you will often find me in a T-shirt, Nike shorts and a hat. I often pair this look with my Jacks to give it a preppier look. I believe comfort is the main priority when tackling exams. 

Studying can often be so tiresome, this is why I take many Starbucks runs. It gives me that extra boost to get me through my chaotic schedule. 

Staying organized is crucial in making sure you don't miss an exam. My Lilly Pulitzer planner is my ultimate lifesaver. 

In order to study, I highlight all of the important details. I also use sticky notes to write any important terms I may need to know.

 The most important lesson in taking finals is to RELAX, and always be PREPARED.

Good luck to everyone in accomplishing your finals!

{April's Love in a Box}

This was my first time participating in Love in a Box Blogger Swap. It was a wonderful experience! I had the privilege of being paired up with Beth  Jenkins. It is always nice getting to meet other fellow bloggers. Beth has a blog called Wandering Forevermore. This is where she blogs about college, Life, DIYS, and more. I encourage everyone to visit her blog: Wandering Forevermore

This months box theme was Spring. Beth embodied the feeling of Spring with floral notecards, a decorative bird for flower arrangements, daisy grow kit, fingernail polish, facial mask, and eos. 

As you can see, I am already using my decorative bird in my flowers I just planted over the weekend. I adore the cuteness of the bird with my flowers! 

Speaking of flowers, I love that my kit included a daisy grow kit. It is obvious that I love flowers. I am looking forward to growing my own daisy!

Spring is a time to refresh your look. A coat of nail polish can do the trick. A facial mask will also rejuvenate your face from the dullness of winter skin. I cannot wait to use them both. 

I love and greatly appreciate this wonderful spring gift. Thank you to my new blogger friend Beth!

Mother's Day is quickly approaching us so I wanted to put together a perfect gift buying guide.

Personally, I know my mom would adore these Lilly Pulitzer acrylic wine glasses. They are simply adorable and at an affordable cost of $25.00 for a set of two!

Who doesn't love a great smelling candle? Bath and Body works has this amazing Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut scented candle. It will leave your entire house smelling like a sweet doughnut shop. Plus, I love the mason jar this candle comes in. 

A cutting board is a necessity for every kitchen. Why not make it more personal by gifting a cutting board in the shape of your state? This is a great gift idea that is versatile for all types of moms. 

Comfy PJ's are sure to be appreciated, and pearls are always a must have accessory for every woman to own. 

Fresh flowers are meaningful for every occasion. My mom's favorite flowers are tulips of course. 

Lastly, a new coat of nail polish is sure to leave you mom feeling happy. I love this new Essie Spring color.

 Golfing is a new hobby of mine that I love. Although I really enjoy playing, I have learned that it is the most frustrating sport ever. Lucky for me I have a patient husband willing to teach me.

The weather is becoming perfect for golfing. I am looking forward to playing more, and hopefully becoming better with time, and plenty of it!

I have been waiting for the perfect chance to wear my Lilly vintage skort, and today was the day. Who says you can't play golf in style?
