Why I didn't go away for college


 I've always grown up in the shadow of the University of Texas at Arlington. Part of me feels left behind because all of my friends are going away for college, but after some long consideration I've decided to stay in my home town for my higher education. Here are my reasons for deciding to go to a local college.
  1. I'm saving tons of money - I decided I really don't want student debt. I see so many people taking out thousands of dollars worth of loans to go to these private or out of state universities. My dad taught me that you shouldn't spend what you don't have, so the idea of student debt or credit cards put me off. 
  2. I plan on staying here - Even after college, I plan on living in Texas. It's where my family is, there are jobs here, and I love the summer heat. This doesn't really give reason to my staying in home, but It does explain why I'm staying in Texas
  3. My boyfriend is really important to me - My boyfriend and I have been dating for 3 years now. We now both go to the same school. I wouldn't be able to do a long distance relationship, and he's too important person in my life for me to leave for college. 
  4. I'll have a safety net - Having my parents in the same city as me really puts my mind at ease. If my first apartment ends up being more than I can handle or If my dryer suddenly decides to break break, I'm not left on my own. I know this independence is something a lot of people look forward to going into college, but I don't want to completely free fall into full blown adulthood. Besides, my parents are paying for my college, so they get a say in what I do.

Song I can't get outta my head



I seriously LOVE this song, it's been a long time since I've found an artist that I like as much as The National, but these guys are awesome.

Wikipedia: "Milky Chance is a German alternative pop folk rock duo with reggae and electronic music influences made up of Clemens Rehbein as vocalist and musician and Philipp Dausch as DJ. Both originating from Kassel, they are signed to Kassel-based label Lichtdicht Records."

Anyone else think Clemens looks like a hairy Zac Effron?

Fun fact: They've got a pretty swag fan blog on Tumblr with some gorgeous photography of the guys.

I'm really surprised that tumblr hasn't made a montage of Clemen's hair...

This song is cool too! 



I think I like them so much I may actually buy their album...like with real money.

The Best Extras for your Erin Condren Planner

Half the fun of getting an Erin Condren planner (or any planner for that matter) is getting add-ons to make your planner awesome. Here's my list of extras to get for your planner, and some to skip. Most are only a few dollars and from the Erin Condren Website.


Pen Holder ($2.50) - Skip, while I liked the idea of the pen holder I realized the rubber bands I ordered came with a pen holder too. The pens I use  are too thin for the holder and the adhesive has started wearing down after 4 months of use.


Colored Pens ($8.95) - Grab! I love using colored pens in my planner. I haven't used the ones from Erin Condren, but colored pens in general are a must for my planner

Elastic Bands ($6.95) - Maybe, If you're the type of person to just throw stuff in you planner, then the elastics may be a good option for you. I typically like to keep my papers filed or on paper clips so I use them less and less. But I do use a band on the front half of my planner making it super easy to flip to the month spread. Like I said earlier, the little red tag shown in the picture can double as a pen holder which is really nice!


Notepads ($20) - YES! This is one add on I haven't bought yet because it's kinda pricy. But the past 4 months with my planner I've realized I use the same thing in post it version of the same thing and I love it. It's like the notes section but far less permanent. I find myself hesitant to use the note pages in my Erin Condren Planner because I like it to stay pretty. Honestly it depends on how much you wanna pay and how much you care about matching your planner on wether to get the EC ones or the Post it ones, but I like the idea of the notepad in general.

Event Stickers ($5) - Maybe, if you're the type of person who LOVES stickers in your planner and know frequent events for the coming year (for example you're sorority meeting schedule) then stickers may be great for you. I've heard a lot of people use them for bills and other reminders. Personally I don't use a lot of the customized stickers.

How to be (a little bit) more responsible


1. Always have your phone charged - you're phone would be your best friend if it were socially acceptable. It's you're GPS, your watch, your contacts, your novels, your camera, your calendar, your todo list, and your connection to your family and friends.  There are some people who use their phone for EVERYTHING, and if you're one of them it's imperative that you always have it charged. Fork over the extra $10 at CVS to keep a charger in you car, one at home, and one at work, so you're never left with a $500 paperweight.

2. Get a good phone case - Remember the most important feature of you're phone case should be to protect your phone, not to look cute. Yes the Whinny the Pooh shaped cases are charming (and ginormous) but how well will it protect your phone when it face plants in the makeup aisle of Target?

3. Respond to Texts, Calls, and E-mails- I hate that feature on the Iphone where people can tell when you've read their text, so I have that switched off. However, this isn't an excuse to ignore people who are spending their time texting/e-mailing/calling you. There's nothing more frustrating than needing to hear back from someone and all you're getting is the silent treatment.

4. Designate a place for your keys, phone, and wallet - I use to always lose my phone, like all the time. Once I designated a pocket in my purse for my keys and another for my phone I very rarely lose it. Same thing in your home too, I have a push pin stuck in my wall by my door for my keys when I get home, and a shoe rack in my closet for shoes. If you have a place for everything, everything will be in it it's place.

5. Write everything down - Get a planner or a note book for goodness sake. I write down basically everything in my planner.  I guarantee you won't remember you're friend's gate code when you're running late to a party or that idea for your sister's birthday present in two months. There are tons of different systems like Getting Things Done (GTD), bullet journal, and spiradex to help you utilize your time and not forget a thing.

6. Don't be late - My dad always tells me "If you're 15 minutes early you're on time, and if you're on time you're late." Must be a military thing. Being late tells people that your time is more important than theirs. It's espcially important when someone is paying you to be somewhere (ie work). Maybe your boss doesn't keep a tally on every tardy, but those mental notes are important when they're looking at who's reliable. The trick to NEVER being late is to think backwards. Say you have to be at work at 9am. You wanna workout and shower before, and you also need to make a lunch. You know it'll take you 30 min to drive to work putting you at 8:30, and 30 min to make your lunch putting you at 8:00. Then you want a whole hour to shower and get dressed so 7:00. Finally 30 min to get a run in, to you need to wake up at 6:30 am. If you like to piddle or chat with your boyfriend or roommate or want some extra time to catch up on instagram, then don't forget to give yourself that time.

In adulting career fake faking it fashion life put together

How to fake being put together


One of my favorite non-fiction books "Adulting" by Kelly William Brown has an entire chapter dedicated to "Faking it". In it, she writes "Faking is terrifically underrated... If you spend your time now faking pleasantness and tidiness, during that process you actually are pleasant and tidy."

Step 87 of her book reminds us that "The outside world only sees your outermost layer...thus, it's easier than it might initially seem to fake it until you make it."

If you want to learn the entire art of faking, please check out Brown's book but if you just want to learn a little on how to fake being put together, then read on.

To me, being put together is all in the little things, some days I'm doing good to get out of the house with pants on. Being put together

  1. Earrings - Nothing says I have my sh*t together like a pair of pearl studs. Cheap diamond studs are hard to tell apart from the real thing, so grab a pair from claire's while you save your coin for some nice ones. If you do get/have nice pearls or diamonds, be sure to take care of them. Pearls are especially delicate, here's a good place to start reading.
  2. Lipstick - I rarely wear lipstick, but when I do I feel like a real adult, not the I wanna get a credit card and max it out on clothes and frozen yogurt kind. Wear read if you're feeling daring, but I typically go with a matte pink color. Here's a post on the 3 lipsticks every girl needs.
  3. Keep your phone charged - I got a mophie case just because I hate having to ask to borrow someone's phone. You use your phone for so much, checking your bank balance, texting your boo or sending ugly faces to your friends. You can't completely disconnect from the world. Sometimes it's great to unplug for a while from your phone, but having a dead battery when you need a ride or there's an emergency isn't my idea of getting closer to mother nature.
  4. Polish - Before I got my new job I never wore sandals, therefore I never had my toenails painted. I realized that EVERY girl at my work had a cute pedicure and nail polish. I know I know, peer pressure, be yourself, but when you're working in an image based company, the details matter. At first I paid to have my nails done, but now I'm figuring out how to do it all myself, which is saving me tons of money. One of these days though I'll be able to a perfect french manicure.

8 Products to use Everyday


I've been really taking care of my skin recently, and I think I've finally found the skin care regimen that is best for me. Here are the 8 things I use every day (and sometimes twice a day)

Morning:
  1. A Gentle Face wash - I like the new "First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser". It's paraben, sulfate, and Phthalate free, meaning it's great for my sensitive skin. I've also heard "Purity by Philosophy" is really great, and I plan on trying it out after I finish off this one.
  2. Clearisonic - I got the "Clearisonic Mia 2" for my birthday earlier this month and I LOVE it. My skin has been so much smoother and more clear. I also have had less problems with oily skin midday by using it in the morning and evening. These puppies are expensive, but if you've got a birthday coming up or some extra cash from graduation, they're a really great investment for your skin. 
  3. Sun Screen - I've been doing some reading about what's important for taking care of my skin during my 20's, and EVERY article says sunscreen is the main focus. I wanted something with a really high SPF but also worked as a moisturizer that I could use in the morning. This one is kind of thick, but It doesn't have that icky sunscreen smell and it doesn't give you ghost face under your makeup. The main reason I probably won't buy it again is because it says to reapply "at least every 2 hours". During the summer this is fine because I wear very little makeup, but during the school year I may look for a different one that lasts longer.
  4. Whitening Toothpaste - I really like this whitening toothpaste, It comes in three little travel bottles and works really well. I only use whitening in the morning then a regular toothpaste at night. 

Evening:
  1. Makeup Removing wipes - I don't remove my face makeup (my face wash and clearisonic take care of that) but I do take off my eye makeup. During the summer I wear eyeliner and mascara instead of tons of eyeshadows. I like these ones because they smell amazing and do a really great job!
  2. Gentle Face wash & Clearisonic (Again!) - Like I said earlier, washing my face twice a day has really helped with oily skin. 
  3. Oil Free Moisturizer - This is the moisturize I've used for years and years. I really like how light this one is, and that it's only $10. I honestly can't go to bed without this stuff on because it makes my skin feel perfectly moisturized without feeling sticky.
  4. Benzoyl Peroxide Gel - I go really cheap when it comes to this stuff because I rarely break out. This is the Target off Brand and is only $4! I put this on the night I see a pimple, and I wake up and it's gone. Often I skip this step completely, but it's a good thing to have in your cabinet for emergencies.

How to Feel Better



I don't get down in the dumps too often, when I do it's normally because I'm feeling insecure, or like I really messed up, or I just couldn't care less about well... anything. On days like these It's important to go easy on myself. Here are some tips for when you're feeling crappy.


1. Be by yourself - I'm in introvert, so maybe this only applies to us, but I hate being around people when my bad mood. Besides my mood just rubs off of people putting them in bad moods (I'm horrible at faking a good mood). Snuggle up with a book, or doodle or journal. This works especially well if people are what's frustrating, or making you feel insecure.

2. Paint your nails - Pamper yourself! If you can afford it go have your nails done, but if not just put on a coat of a forgotten nail polish. Forcing yourself to sit there and let you nails dry gives you a little moment of peace, as if nothing in the world matters more than holding completely still to not mess up your top coat.

3. Feel pretty - Painting your nails may go into this one, but you'll feel so much better about yourself if you put a little effort in in the morning. It doesn't have to be something extreme, just something to make you feel better about yourself. A little lipstick goes a long way, I rarely wear lipstick, and when I do I always feel a little special.

4. Sleep - You probably need it. There's nothing I love more than waking up from a nap. If you can't squeeze one in, at least try to go to bed an hour or so earlier. And on top of that drink some water, being tired and thirsty are major mood killers. I carry around a water bottle with me at all times to prevent dehydration (and the headaches that go with it). You owe it to yourself to take care of your body, and when we've got a lot on our plate our health seems to be the first thing to go.

5. Jam - Change up your usual playlist while you're working, driving, or working out. Music can really set your mood for the day. Consider burning a CD (yeah an actual CD) and put it in your car for when you're feeling blue. Over time, you'll feel better when you play it, give it a cheesy name in sharpie like "Feel good Mix" and pretend we're in the 2000's.

How to survive an 8 hour shift


It's been really tough since I've become a manager to not be burned out on these really long shifts. When I was working in high school I was typically there 4-5 hours max on week nights and maybe 6 on weekends. But since I've been basically working full time it's been tough having energy throughout my entire shift. Here are some tips I've figured out after a few weeks of long hours.

  1. Water, water, water - for real this is so important. No matter what health blog, or what skin advise you look up, water will almost always be a key factor in looking and feeling healthy. I started out with getting a really big water bottle (the kind from Victoria's secret with cute sayings) and now I've got a collection of different ones. I like the large ones that hold at least 32oz, then I know I only need to drink two bottles to meet my daily requirement.
  2. Comfy shoes - This one is obvious, It's tough standing all day, go out and find some comfortable shoes that are in your dress code. 
  3. Keep busy- Depending on how busy your store is you may find yourself getting bored. Always be working on something, not only will your managers take notice, time will also feel like it's going faster. Nothing is worse than checking the clock only to realize fifteen minutes passed since you checked last. Remember that you're there to work, and they're paying you (regardless of how much or how little) to DO something.
  4. Pack a lunch - if you work more than 6 hours you're suppose to get a break, it may be different depending on where you work, but be sure to check with management about it. Bring something that will give you energy through the rest of your shift but don't forget to treat yo self with something too. 
  5. Spend your break wisely - while on break you should definitely eat, but also do something little you enjoy like checking Pinterest, reading, or snap chatting. You'll feel more rested after a few minutes of down time instead of eating and worrying about getting back to work.

July week 2



Hi guys! Here's what I got on my weekly goals this past week

July Week 1 goals:
  1. Run a total of 6 miles - I ran five so almost! I was so excited when I was able to run 20 min straight on Thursday. Baby steps!
  2. Track water for 5 days - DONE I got some adorable new hydrate stickers from etsy! These were way cheaper than ones I've gotten in the past and so cute! 

  3. Track food for 5 days - I got 4 days 
  4. Post 5 times onto The College Girl daily 
  5. Journal 5 times this week
  6. Clean off/out desk - know when you get in those cleaning moods and get it done really fast? Totally happened here. My desk has become my "dump zone" so it's always the first to get messy. 
  7. Read "Fit2Fat2Fit" by Drew Manning  - I'm about 1/2 way through. I'm sure I'll finish this coming week. 
  8. Workout 5 times this week (including running) - again four times. I'm thinking this one was redundant because I mainly run when I work out. 
  9. Bring my lunch to work every day (at least on the day I get a lunch) - Adrian and I made lasagna early in the week so I had plenty to bring to lunch. My family also picked up some cherries from Costco that were AMAZING!

  1. Run 6.5 miles
  2. Don't buy any clothes - honestly I need more clothes like I need a hole in my head.

Dang I'm already 19

When I turned 17, I was determined to have a good birthday. It was so lame...I carried around my Harry potter want around the house (because I was of legal magic-ing age) and went to give blood because you have to be 17, and went to see an r-rated movie. We also went to dinner with my family. 

Sometimes I wonder where time has gone, and other I feel like I'm waiting around for things to happen. Graduating highschool and enrolling in college and getting my first management job has all been such an experience. I'm happy for what I've been able to accomplish, but I'm also excited for what I can do next. 

My family and I typically go out to eat and I always get really nice presents on my birthday. But part of me wants to have a party like we did when we were kids, and the other wants to celebrate like an adult with a small dinner and a little get together like last year.

Why do birthdays have to be so bland as we get older? I was reading a huffington post article after googling "what should I do on my birthday" that I really liked. I'm not as big into the running in the mountains thing (yet, but I'm working on that), but I like the idea of simple gifts and spending time with people, which I guess has always been a big part of my birthday. 

Today (on my birthday) I spent time with my boyfriend and my family and ate TONS of good food. And while the idea of celebrating with friends and having a big celebration is great, and we really ought to celebrate more, I think spending time with the people we love is more valuable than confetti and cake.

Birthday Wishlist!

I can't believe I'm already turning 19! I'm so lucky to get to celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend and my family. The past year seems to have gone so fast, I still remember getting ready for senior year and how nervous I was. Now here I am getting ready to move out and start college.

Anyway, here's a little list of things on my birthday wish list.

1/2 of my Adobe Creative Cloud Subscription (even with a student discount it's $240 for the year!)


A green clearisonic, I've heard so much about how good these are for my skin. I like the Mia 2 because it has 2 speeds and a timer. I got this a little early so I've been using it the past week and I love it!

July Monthly/Weekly Goals


Hi lovelies! Happy National Blueberry month! July in probably my favorite month, not only because it's my birth month, but because I love Texas heat and the Fourth of July!

Anyway, I've always been a goal maker since I was little. In fact I think it's the only reason I'm able to touch type or knit or any of the zillion other little things I learned to do as a kid. Last month I set myself a goal to lose 2 lb/week. I've been making small changes in my lifestyle and I'm down 8 lb from last month. I had tried losing weight before, but never as seriously as this past month. I realized when I weighed myself at the beginning of the summer to realize I had gained 10 pounds over senior year putting me at 150. My overall goal is to bring my weight down into a healthy BMI, right now I'm sitting at a 27 something, which is considered to be over weight for my age and height. 

All this to say I've decided to start posting both my weekly and monthly goals for accountability. Not only my fitness/weight loss goals, but also my money, my blog, my family, and any other goals I put myself to. 

Note that I make "SMART" goals which the internet has tons to read about and I won't add anymore to it. Basically it means the goals I make are precise, nothing like "get stronger" or "become smarter", the goals I set for myself are based in numbers, because numbers don't lie. I only make a few monthly goals and 10 weekly goals. At one point I was making daily goals, like journal, write 500 words, or whatever, I found though that it can be really depressing when you miss a day and I'm more likely to quit mid week. By having a little wiggle room I typically get more things done.

July Goals:
  1. Post 15 times onto The College Girl daily
  2. Have $700 in my savings account
  3. Lose a total of 8 more pounds 
  4. Read one book on my Summer book list

July Week 1 goals:

  1. Run a total of 6 miles
  2. Track water for 5 days
  3. Track food for 5 days
  4. Post 5 times onto The College Girl daily
  5. Journal 5 times this week
  6. Clean off/out desk
  7. Read "Fit2Fat2Fit" by Drew Manning  
  8. Workout 5 times this week (including running)
  9. Bring my lunch to work every day (at least on the day I get a lunch)
  10. Make an appointment about my wisdom teeth
