San Francisco: Weekend Getaway 🌸🌿

Hello my beauties!! This past weekend I had the chance to fly out to San Fran to celebrate my sisters birthday– she’s 20, like WHAAAAAT!?!? #IFeelOld

I just wanted to share with you some of the cute (but so SO expensive 😭) things we did on the trip!!


For starters, I’m not really a fan of being such a tourist. I prefer to live like the locals would, but still go out and have a bit of fun experiencing new things 🙂

My absolute FAVORITE was Twin Peaks. We started our journey at the bottom of the hill at some pizza place, and walked about an hour and a half to the top! I was SHOOK to see the majority of the visitors drove. I feel like that’s cheating. We definitely earned that view. It was so surreal!

We went to the Sutro Baths (right by the Cliff House). My sisters birthday wish was to climb the giant rock in the ocean. Which she actually did, I was pretty impressed. Mostly because I gave up in fear of slipping and dying 🤷🏽‍♀️ #dramaqueen

I had way too many delicious foods to even count. But my favorite dish was Pasta Primavera from a cute lil restaurant outside of Muir Woods. Which brings me to my next point…

I think I lied. Muir Woods would probably be my favorite from this trip because everything looked so magical!! I felt like I was in the 1500s walking through the clover-covered forests 🌳 I only wish that the pictures could do it justice. Maybe a VR version would be better 🤗😉💕

At the end of the day, I can say that I’m definitely grateful to have gotten a taste of the San Fran life, and I can’t WAIT to come back again as soon as possible!!!

Get Ready With Me: Audition Edition

Hello my beauties! ❤  This week is going to be a lazy post again– solely for the sake of my sanity… it’s a long story /.\ I’ve decided to share another (you guess it!) YouTube video! This past week I posted a Get Ready with Me: Audition Edition. Really the title says it all :’)

**Side note: The agency liked me and this chica is signed :)**

How To: De-Stress

maxresdefault.jpgz

Hello my lovelies ❤ This upcoming week is finals (I cry just thinking about it), which tends to bring a lot of stress. So, I decided to share with you a few ways to destress– not just for finals but family, work, people in general. Hope they help you as much as they help me, and good luck! You’re almost done with the year!!! What time is it? #SummerTime What team? #Wildcats! Okay, done with HSM… for now.

My favorite way to destress has always been exercise; more specifically yoga. Any form of meditation is great for your mind, but yoga- being more active than typical meditation- also interacts movements, making the body less tense, too. I also really recommend it because you don’t have to be one of those people that goes anywhere to participate in this. There’s soooo many online resources for yoga poses;  Pinterest, YouTube, books. And you don’t need to invest a lot of money or time on equipment and such. It’s very flexible (no pun intended). 😛

Tea is AMAZINGGG. Need I say more? My personal favorite has been Chamomile- I use it to help me sleep. Each tea has different benefits, so I suggest looking more into that in order to have the best kind for you. Some more I really like are Sleepy Time, Plantation Mint, and White Chocolate Peppermint. Green Tea has also been really beneficial to me in the past. An extra tip is using the tea bags for your skin: it helps soften, hydrate, prevent wrinkles, and get rid of undereye darkness. Try it outttt!!!

Recently I’ve been avoiding going out and opting for more girls nights in. I find this a great way to take a break from all of the school work (we even dedicate a few hours to doing our work, but it ends up being a lot easier/ fun with someone else suffering with you). It’s so so SO important to remember to take a break for yourself and get in some “me” time. I feel you, girl- finals can make you crayyyyy. Take a day a week and do something you like: watch a movie, have a spa night, go out to eat- whatever your little heart desires 🙂

If all else fails, maybe all you really need is a nice nap and some music. I’ve always been the kind of person that felt the need to sleep for HOURS, when in reality all you need in the middle of the day is a quick power snooze for about 15 minutes. You’ll feel so refreshed and ready to kick ass. Pop in some headphones, listen to one of those study playlists, and you’re set.

If you’re in the same unlucky boat as me this week dealing with finals, good luck to you. Like I said, I feel your pain. But after we suffer through this, we get SUMMER!!!! You got this 🙂

Weekend Update: 5/6/16-5/8/16

Hey guys! So, I know it’s been a while since I’ve written an actual post. I’ve completely been blanking on topics to write about so I take the easy way out and end up posting my weekly videos and such. I’m hoping today’s post will help me get back in the swing of things and just do an update on what I’ve done this past weekend. Hope you likey!! 🙂


Friday was a really chill day. My friends and I ended up having a photoshoot in the quad during the lunch period. I’m really happy with how the picies turned out– such cute! I also had vegan chinese food (which was AMAZING!!!), and stopped by a picninc the mentors held (which sadly got moved inside due to it being too hot. TOO hot! That’s crazy how perfect it’s getting outside 😀 ).

Saturday I ended up taking a day trip to Wisconsin (but lemme tell you, those cheeseheads know what’s up). Not only was it perfect weather and get to sit outside– AMEN to restaurant patios!– but the food was AMAZEBALLS and just a great trip overall. I was quickly taken off my pedestal when my day went from motorcycle rides to working *shudder* *cringe* *gag*.

Sunday was Mother’s Day 🙂 ❤ I ended up going to the Guthrie to see a play: Harvey. Honestly I thought I would hate it. However, I totally recommend it for literally EVERYONE it’s so frickin adorbs I’m basically fangirling over it right now. It’s also a movie, so if that tickles your fancy, go check it out 😛 But yeah, my granny, sister, mum, and I grabbed some *amazing* food at Level Five Cafe (which is right inside the theater and sooooooooo bomb) then went in and watched the play. I personally think our seats were legit the best; we were up on the balcony, in the center: perfect view of EVERYTHING!!!

That’s literally all I did this weekend– I know I have no life. If this was more interesting to you than my recent “go watch my videos post because I’m too lazy to actually write anything”, then I have succeeded 🙂 Have an amazing day and eat some bombass food because YUMS! K byeeeeee
