My Bullet Journal Setup for June!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today’s post is a little bit different, not beauty related. I want to share something I have done the past couple of months that has really made me much happier. This is a peek inside my bullet journal setup for June. Some of you guys requested this so I hope you enjoy this post!

On Instagram, everyone has such artsy colorful bullet journals and I just am not that artsy and I can’t draw and I wanted it to be more functional and to serve as a daily journal for me and as a non-academic planner for my hobbies and my life. I want to share it with you guys because I love it, and to put an example of a ‘not perfect’ journal out there.

So these are all the little spreads that I do for each month.

Page one is a title page: 

This just says June 2019 and one of my favorite quotes that inspires me to  take care of myself. If you are like me and can’t draw this is a cute option for your cover spread!

Page two has a little calendar and four weekly to do lists:

On the calendar I circle the days that I have track meets, events, vacations etc like the big things for this month that I need to not forget! I then have four big boxes that are my ‘weekly to do lists’ where I put adult stuff like ‘refill prescription’, ‘make doctor appointment’ etc. It really keeps me organized and I will forget anything I don’t write down.

Life Update: First Year of College!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! Unfortunately, neither of us have been able to blog lately, but now that it is summer we are back! I recently just finished my first year of college and I wanted to share how I felt about it:

First semester life update: here!

*My first semester was lovely, I truly enjoyed it! If you haven’t read that post then it might make sense to read it first before this one!*

My second semester of college started in mid-January and it ended just last week after finals. This semester I felt like I had a better handle on my coursework and that I could take on some side projects, I also felt like I was happier, I was less lonely, less homesick and like I was finally starting to make a lot of good friends.

My grades are still good, the classes I am taking are so interesting, and I love what I’m studying. I always make sure that schoolwork is my first priority, I want to keep my good gpa, and I am proud of myself for the work that I did this semester.

As you guys know, I also run cross country and track for my college! Continue reading “Life Update: First Year of College!”

How I Deal With my Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety and Depression is something most people experience, some more than others.

I experience both, my anxiety tends to be the worse of it, after an anxiety attack I do suffer from depressive spells.

When I was younger i didn’t really know how to handle them. I used to feel someone to physically hold me tight as I let it all happen, then after I was done and my depressive spells started I would close myself away for a few days. It was really hard to motivate myself to do anything but sleep.

As i grew older I figured out better ways to deal with all this. Continue reading “How I Deal With my Anxiety and Depression”

Do’s & dont’s  of high school


Hi my loves!

Now that the school year is among some of us, I thought I would do a post for those of you going into high school!
High school

That’s a scary word, but don’t worry! Although it isn’t like high school musical, it isn’t like mean girls either.
Here’s a little guide to help you through high school!

DO’S

  • Study study study! Don’t go into your freshman year with that mentality of “colleges don’t look till junior year”! You gotta work hard.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help, it can save your life!
  • Organize EVERYTHING! I find keeping a planner with me in every class really helps, so I know what’s going on during which days. And what’s due on what dates.
  • I would highly suggest packing your own lunch, HEALTHY
  • Makes appointments with your school councilors. They can help you so so so so much
  • Sleep early.
  • Be active in your school.
  • Plan your homework, I usually do the most important homework first

DONT’S

  • Save everything for the last minute
  • Stress too much
  • Stay up too late
  • Anything dangerous
  • Get too terribly distracted

High school is only scary if you make it. I feel high school as taught me how to really manage my time.

New Series? Opinions Needed!

During the summer Hailey and I have been thinking of starting a little series for our blog, and we would like to know what you think!

We know that most of the beauty gurus buy/receive products from name brands, and that these products are usually on the more expensive side of the spectrum.

What Hailey and I would like to do is go to these name brand stores (or order online) and find the cheapest product that they have and buy it, then do a review on it to see if it’s a steal (worth buying) or drop (not worth buying)

What do you all think??

Let us know down in the comments!!

Do’s and Don’ts of Blogging

Hello guys! So many of you find my little blogging tips mini series helpful that I decided to make another one. I always get such sweet comments on post like this so thank you all for that! Todays post will be do’s and dont’s of blogging (what not to do!)

Do edit your posts and don’t make typos 

First and foremost editing! Editing will prevent the unprofessional typos that inevitably will occur. I sometimes have typos actually, trying to work on this!

Do Promote your post but don’t be annoying about it!


Promoting your new post on social media can be really valuable but don’t spam your followers feeds with it and go overly crazy to get views. Also in the comments of someone else’s post don’t shove your new post down their throat in efforts to get them to check it out, it is unprofessional.

Do take your own pictures (even if they aren’t amazing!) but Don’t use stock photos! Continue reading “Do’s and Don’ts of Blogging”
