Tips for Back to School


It's sad to say but back to school is right around the corner! Here are nine of my back to school tips to keep you on track for the new school year:

Use a Planner
Planners are one thing that keep me from losing my mind during the school year. Here are some planners I have tried out and here is how I organized my planner freshman year.
Go to Bed On Time
I really need to take my own advice on this one. I catch myself staying up until 2 am some nights doing homework and then I'm exhausted and can't keep my eyes open the next day at school. 
Stay Organized
Organization is another thing that helps me stay sane during the school year. I'm that girl in school who has her school map color coordinated to my class schedule and my folders for each class. Make sure everything has a place and everything is in that place so that it's easy to find and everything is stress free. 
Work Ahead
I love the feeling of being one of the only students in the class to turn in a project or essay before the due date and it takes so much weight off your shoulders. When you work ahead you don't have to worry about missing fun things friends plan or getting swamped with other homework. 
Don't Procrastinate
This ties into the tip above, get things done on time and don't wait until the last minute. Pacing yourself and getting things done will alleviate stress.
Keep Track of Your Grades
I don't know what I did before I discovered that our grade book had an app in middle school. My school has an app to check grades and I check them in every class, no joke. It helps me to compare my grades to the ones written on the assignment and to help me stay on track to get the grade I want at the end of the semester. 
Pick Out Your Outfit and Make Lunch the Night Before
I started doing this last year and it made the early mornings so much easier! I typically pick out two outfits, the one I actually want to wear and one that is a tee shirt and jeans in case I wake up late, it rains, or I'm too lazy to actually get ready. I also make my lunch so I can just grab it as I'm going out the door the next morning. 
Eat Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it definitely helps with your ability to learn and focus at school. If you're someone who doesn't like a big breakfast put a granola bar in your bag or eat some fruit (my favorite is bananas).
Don't Waste Time
Turn your phone off, go to a quiet area and get everything that you need done done. You're really going to hate yourself when it gets to be 11 pm and you realize you wasted your time and didn't get your homework done.

I hope these tips are helpful as you are going back to school in the next couple of months! When is your first day of school? Comment below!

Luv Ya!

11 Fashion Documentaries Free to Watch with Amazon Prime

I found my love for fashion documentaries in fashion design class my senior year of high school. While searching for a movie to watch on Amazon Prime the other night I hit the jackpot of fashion documentaries and wanted to share my findings with you. So far this is the only streaming service I have found that has a pretty good selection. There are more on Amazon but today I am just sharing the ones that are free to watch. I also haven't watched many of these yet so I don't know how good all of them are so hopefully they are all worth the watch.

Bible Journaling: Isaiah 64:8

Being stuck in my house has given me the perfect time to spend Bible journaling and I actually really like the one I did today. 
I never quite know what I should share in these posts besides pictures of my Bible so today I'm sharing the inspiration behind my art, the finished product, and my outfit of the day.

Meet My Corgi!

Last weekend was a very exciting one for my family. We welcomed a new little furry friend into our home.

Life Lately Vol. 7

It has been an eventful couple of months for me! I have been so busy with school and fun activities with friends I haven't had much time to think about updating the blog. I thought it would be good to share a little life update with you.

Striped Sweater Round Up

Striped sweaters are my new favorite thing! I think at this point I own four... Every time I see one in the store I have to have it. I can't find the links to any of the sweaters I own so I thought I would round up a few that I found while online shopping that are now on my to-buy list!
