WIAW: Gather Bar Giveaway!

Hi friends! Well, the semester has started. Is it bad to admit I already feel stressed? I am taking a bunch of upper level courses this semester including one from a notoriously strict/tough professor. I’m a little intimidated to say the least.

Speaking of school, would you all be interested in another ‘Day in the Life‘ post…but SCHOOL edition? My schedule is really wonky this semester and it has totally thrown off my eating! I’m still trying to figure everything out and adapt, but it’s definitely a challenge. I could also share more about the classes I’m taking, if you’d like. Let me know in the comments!

Winter Wellness with GNC PUREDGE

Thanks to GNC for inspiring today’s recipe and allowing me to try their new PUREDGE line of products! All opinions are my own.

Some people see this time of year as stressful, full of temptation, and guilt inducing. That’s just sad! This should be a time of enjoying yourself, spending time with family, and participating in all the food and fun the season has to offer.

CL Thursdays+ a Favorite Things BIRTHDAY Giveaway

WE WERE HIT! Winter has certainly arrived (early!) and there is over 90 inches of snow in my area right now. Not cool for this girl who hates the cold and the snow. I’ll say it again, I need to move somewhere without seasons. It’s happening for grad school. And can you believe this is the second time a major winter storm has happened on my birthday!? Crazy!
