The Best Haircuts for Summer 2018

It has been a hot minute since I last got my hair cut, but the other week I picked up the scissors and made a change! Summer is such a great time for makeovers and style transformations, and hair is one of the easiest things to change. Here are a few of my favorite haircuts for the season!

Podcasts to Make You Feel More Productive

I am a huge fan of podcasts. I love having them on in the background when I'm doing social media, cleaning the apartment, or cooking. It just makes me feel so much more productive than if I had a television show on in the background. I've done a similar post a while ago, but what I listen to has changed and I thought it was time for an update.

The 5 Most Refreshing Starbucks Drinks for the Summer

To say that I am a Starbucks addict would be an understatement. I visit at least twice a week and spend way more money than I should on my custom coffee drinks. I like to think that I've tried most of the menu and today I compiled a list of my top five favorite drinks for the summertime.

The 2018 Summer Skincare Routine

A year ago I did a Summer Skincare Routine blog post that has been super popular! I've gone through a little bit of a change this year and have minimized my skincare products so I thought I would re-write the post!

The Easiest Workout For People With No Time

I've been consistently exercising for over a month now! That's a lot for me considering I haven't had a fitness routine since I was a cheerleader in high school over four years ago. The last couple years I've made excuses for myself such as "I don't have time" or "I should be studying instead" to keep myself from hitting the gym, but keeping myself from the gym was keeping me from living to my fullest potential. Whether you have a full time job or are a full time student, time is our most precious commodity and you might not think that you have enough to fit in a sweat session. Here is my workout routine. It's 40 minutes, three to five days a week, and super easy.

What I'm Watching: Spring 2018

This has been such a good season for television shows and I'm so into it. I watch a lot of tv, probably more than I should, but usually it's on in the background when I'm cooking, cleaning, or when I'm running on the treadmill. Here's a breakdown of what I watch (shows in caps are ones that I actively keep up with).

How to Study For Science Finals

It's finals week for me, which means I'll be drinking double the coffee, getting half the sleep, and my stress levels will be off the charts. College is funny because a lot of people believe that "Cs get degrees," but my plan for a while has been going to graduate school after I get my degree, so it is really important for me to do well and get good grades. Everyone studies in a slightly different way and people have different goals, but this is how I study for my finals. 

First off, just a little background. I'm taking five classes this semester and I have finals for four of them. I have molecular biology, a molecular biology lab (with a written final), evolution, and molecular biophysics. None of my classes this semester have been math or computational heavy, so I spend most of my time on conceptual questions.

My Springtime Morning Routine

School is almost over, but I thought that I'd write this post while I still have classes and a set morning routine. This summer I think my morning routine will change once I start working and my schedule changes, so there will definitely be an updated version of this coming in a couple months!

What I'm Reading: May 2018

I've taken the last couple months off of this blog, but I'm back with a huge list of books to recap for you! It's been my goal this year to read 18 books in 2018 and I've been making progress. Here are the books I plan on reading in May and the books that I've finished in March and April.
