5. Planner

Staying organized is the only way to handle so much at once. A planner helps me a ton to make sure I never forget an appointment or an event. It also helps to get a visual on how much time you have before you have a test or paper due!

6. Gel Pens

7. Cute Packpack that will MAKE IT THROUGH THE YEAR!

Because we’ve all had that backpack that falls apart halfway through the year and we have to stick it out and make the best of the second half.

8. Quality Headphones

If you’re running around on campus and you want to avoid having to talk to people headphones are a must. KIDDING! But seriously when you’re in a noisy setting trying to study or unable to hear these are great and they’re wireless!

What’s in My Wardrobe? : The Perfect Pair of Ripped Black Skinny Jeans

I struggle with not only finding a nice black pair of jeans, but keeping a nice pair of black jeans BLACK. I’ve gone through so many different pairs and they always end up looking grey and faded. Flying Monkey jeans are by far my favorite brand of jeans so when I found these babies with rips in the knees at a local boutique I HAD to have them (fall is still a ways away but I couldn’t wait!). These will now be my favorite go to pair because they are so soft and comfy and they look hot hot hot! BONUS they’re not too expensive especially for the quality of these pants.

You can find them HERE! or if you’re local to Utah I found them at Bohme.

Workout Wear

One of my favorite ways to get myself motivated and excited about going to the gym is a new cute outfit to wear to the gym! I know it doesn’t last forever, but the new outfit will definitely get you through your rut. Here are a few of my favorite must-have workout items and some cute things I found on my favorite websites.

  1. Lululemon Pants Align II – Say what you will about the price, but these pants are seriously amazing and worth every penny. I purchased a few pairs from Victoria’s Secret and I hate them, they’re so tight and restricting I never wear them. I definitely would have been better off just buying another pair of the world’s softest workout pants. There is nothing that compares, it is like being naked. LW5LJFS_0001_3
  2. Marble Print Crop Top – I wear this top everywhere. It’s so cute and goes with black, white, pink, and grey bottoms. If you can’t tell, I like neutral colors. active-black-marble-print-zip-through-crop-top
  3. Adidas Tubulars – I cannot find the pair of tubulars I have anywhere online because I found them at a footlocker in Vegas, but I did find a cuuuteee pair of pale pink ones I’m dying over. 10efba40d34d3225961615af4dbea6ab
  4. Tie Back Tank – Yogi inspired tank that is perfect for all workouts. Perfect for glute day so you can check up on your booty gains. 687c8f394c268967e1e4a682b9da5195
  5. Cross Sports Bra – so edgy and cute, this sports bra is a win win because it’s only $16! active-black-cross-detail-wrap-around-crop-top
  6. Cropped Pink Tee – Loose, rolled sleeved plain tee. I have this is white and I wear it to the gym and with a pair of shorts and some sneaks on a regular basis. It’s so cute and easy plus its comfy but doesn’t look lazy. 8542d5577f314345ae4e8318bc4749eb

I hope this gives you a little bit of inspo to get you back in the gym and looking better than ever!

How to clean your Alex and Ani Bracelets at Home

You all know I’m a big fan of things you can do at home (dying your hair, dermaplaning). Really anything that saves you from having to go out into the world and spend a ton of money is a win in my book. Lately I’ve noticed a few of my Alex and Ani bracelets are looking really dirty so this is how I cleaned them!

You’ll need:

Blue Dawn Dish Soap

A SOFT bristle toothbrush

I started by letting them soak in a soapy water solution for about 5 minutes. Next I putting a little dollop of soap on the soft toothbrush and scrubbed them down. After I patted them dry with a clean towel and laid them out to let them dry.

The bracelets aren’t supposed to be cleaned with jewelry cleaner because it has harsh chemicals that can ruin them. Their website says to use a polishing cloth, but I didn’t think this would work for mine because they were getting black marks.

5 Multi-Use Pieces for Summer

I made this list with the college girl on a budget in mind. It is a list of a few articles of clothing that you can use in so many different outfits this summer that way you have to buy less!

  1. White Soft & Sexy Tie Front Tee

2360_2859_140_f

I found this t-shirt at American Eagle and fell in love the second I saw it. Pair this top with a pair of jeans and a blocked heel for a casual girls lunch. Got a date night? Slip on a curve hugging pencil skirt and some heels! This shirt is perfect to wear to an outdoor concert with a denim jacket. You could even go for a festival look with denim shorts, a black belt and some boots. Need a swimsuit cover up on the boat? No problem.

2. Black Bomber Jacket

This piece will work year round, but is perfect when paired with some comfy leggings for a summer movie night at the theater. Wear it over a bodysuit for a dressy date night or NBA game. Running errands? Jeans and some Adidas shoes will add the finishing touch for this street styled outfit.

3. Crochet Bodysuit

TIGER-MIST-BELLS-BODYSUIT-TM3470WHI_1532x2000_636197427471324115_TM110116-2495

This cute crochet bodysuit doubles as a swimsuit! Wear it on one of those anything-can-happen nights.

4. Hoodie Matching Set

This cute matching set can be dressed up with heels, or dressed down with sliders or even sneakers. You can mix and match the top and the bottom with other pieces, the possibilities are endless!

5. Tee Dress

This tee dress is super comfy no matter how you wear it. A corset belt will give this dress a sexy curvy look. Wear a baseball hat for a causal running errands look.

Brandy Favorites

This post is all about my favorite summer basics from one of my favorite stores Brandy Melville (and yes my car has their alien logo on it). All their clothes are beautiful and very affordable! Their line is now available at Nordstrom (in City Creek if you live in Utah!)

  1. The Simone Tank

3228f86ea612f92ea556fd4f81d6319a

This cute tank is so versatile. I would pair this with a cute pair of ripped jeans and nude heels for a lunch/shopping date. Throw a leather jacket over the top for a night out on the town.

2. Juliette Denim Skirt

8dc3153498a6526bef8b69653f2710e3

Denim Skirts are back! The raw edging on this skirt gives it the perfect casual look. I would wear this with my superstar adidas and a t-shirt.

3. Reina Bodysuit

09473083d667785eff7b27b66fb68bf0

The perfect black tank that goes with everything! Chic and sexy by itself, but it can be dressed up or down.

4. Karla Dress

Gingham is a huge trend this summer, you can rock it in this casual summer dress!

5. Erica USA Sweatshirt

617d4da59640c30b8a0e14e929a75f4f

I am obsessing over this sweatshirt. Fourth of July (and 24th of July if you live in Utah) never looked so good. Throw this over shorts on a chilly summer night.

6. Coco Top

d05b99480e6b4f1197c44300e9ecdfda

Two of my favorites in one. Wrap tops & blue hues. I’ve been loving blues and the vacay vibe for this summer!

7. Jenny Tube Top

7d4e8a53bc822263f861edfa1d9315a0

Such a simple classy look. Sexy shoulders for date night. I would pair this top with a skirt or a cute pair of shorts and a short heeled sandal. Add a choker for a more intense/edgy look.
