Love Wins + Weird Trendy Juice Bars


It's been pretty eventful around the country since last Friday. Working for an agency that revolves around social media only helped magnify the reaction--the office was buzzing.

The excitement even called for canceling all healthy lunch plans because:

"We are celebrating marriage quality! We are NOT getting potatoes, we are getting burgers and french fries because life is good." -- overheard at VM.

The PRIDE Festival was also happening over the weekend in NYC. #lovewins

I also was conveniently sick just in time for the weekend. Naturally, I found this as good of a time as any to try out any weird remedies that juice bars have come up with (because I need to get the full trendy-juice-bar experience before I head back to Tampa).

Current Must-Have Face Products

My face has been extremely upset with me since arriving in New York.

Maybe it's that I'm not used to the air quality, maybe it's stress, maybe it's my uncanny ability to never stop touching my face. (It's probably the last one).

My skin is still not happy with me, but I've been using four products recently to hopefully fix my problems.

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser
A warming gel cleanser that removes make up, deeply cleanses, and detoxifies. It doesn't leave my face feeling oily and it's definitely helping with some of the clogged pores and breakouts I'm dealing with.

Quick & Easy Breakfast: Overnight Oats

source: Rachelle Lucas

I have woken up at 5:30 a.m. every day this week. Hello real world, I don't like you. I don't know how people do it. I'm not even technically in the real world yet and I'm struggling! At 9 p.m. (the latest!) I'm falling asleep immediately.

I don't think I've gone to bed at 9 p.m. since I was like, seven. Maybe.

I'm so tired that not even the so-strong-it-will-make-you-cry iced coffee made me feel energized. It just made me feel way over-caffinated, while twitchy and still ready for a nap.

On to relevant things--waking up at 5:30 leaves room to get ready without a good breakfast. Now I don't know about you, but I can only deal with cereal for so long.

Which is why my new best friend is going to be overnight oats.

Welcome to New York

Are you singing T-Swift with me?

I start my internship today and I couldn't be more excited (and nervous, definitely nervous). 

I'm not actually staying in the city so my weekend was spent figuring out how to drive, park, and take the train. (I can't promise that I successfully figured it out, so wish me luck). 

I'll be posting about it on here, but since Instagram is my favorite form of social media, I'll be using it pretty frequently. So if you'd like to stay updated with my summer in New York, follow me! (Expect a lot of coffee).

June Goals & Updates

It's been a while since I wrote a post about goals since the Weekly Wishes link-up ended. I wanted to keep it going, but make it monthly rather than weekly. It's kind of nice to sit down and type up some goals and updates as if I was sitting with someone and having coffee. (Ugh, I need some coffee).

Anyway, right now is also the perfect opportunity for an announcement: I've been offered and internship for the summer in New York! I'll be leaving at some unreasonable hour tonight to begin the 17 hour drive to my aunt's house in Jersey.

So if anyone has any recommendations of things to do/places to go (especially coffee shops)--I'm going to need that list ASAP.

I Guess Spotify is Cool

The title of this post pretty much sums up my thoughts for the past two-ish weeks in a slightly understated matter, because in reality, I'm pretty obsessed with Spotify.

This isn't something new--in fact, you probably are hardcore judging me for being so late--but I'm going to gush about Spotify anyway and all the greatness that I've finally accepted.

I should start with how diehard of a Pandora fan I am. Let me tell you, my Ed Sheeran pandora station knows exactly what to play, and my Fall Out Boy station knows exactly when to throw it back to middle school and play some All Time Low.
