How I Finally Stopped Picking My Face

pimples, acne, facial, picking your face

I know, I know, this topic is less than glamorous. Gross, most people would even say. But I decided to write about it anyway because picking my face is something I’ve really struggled with in the past, and I know I can’t be the only one… If I could help just one person stop this horrible habit, then it would be worth sharing this embarrassing thing about myself!

Staying Healthy in College: My Tips and Tricks

how to stay healthy in college, staying healthy, college living

I’m gonna get real with you all today (actually, I always try to be ‘real’ with you guys, as evidenced in my weird and awkward blog posts here, here, and here).

Anyway, I thought it would be helpful to share my best tips for saving time in the morning, both to relay some wisdom to all of you as well as remind myself how to be more efficient during my morning routine (I want those extra five minutes of sleep just as badly as you do!). So without further ado, here are my tips and some corresponding photos taken properly in the dark, before the sun has risen. It always drives me nuts when TV shows portray kids getting ready for school with the sun shining brightly outside. That is just not realistic, unless they don’t start school until 9 am or it’s very close to summer! It’s almost always still dark (or mostly dark) when I wake up… Ok, rant done now, here are the tips for real.
