Can we take a moment to appreciate all of the shine going on in this photo. First off, I must say this dress is AMAZING quality and I will for sure be making this a new go-to piece. And paired with these cute, but glitzy, sandals, I couldn’t sparkle more. This was one of the most simple pieces to dress up and I am totally in love with this look. All pieces are linked at the bottom of this post.

I am sure most of you have heard of the amazing benefits hot lemon water, first thing in the morning, is supposed to have. After hearing so many people talk about how amazing this simple drink is, I decided to give it a go.
For the past month I have been drinking hot Lemon Detox Tea (click here to purchase) with half a fresh squeezed lemon. I drink this before I eat or drink anything else. And I can definitely tell a difference. Some of the immediate and visible changes I saw were:
- Clearer skin, after only a few days of drinking this there was a noticeable difference in the complexion of my skin.
- Eating less. I felt much more full and did not tend to be as hungry throughout the day.
- Digestive health
These are only what I can visibly see changing within the past month. But this morning drink is supposed to have many internal benefits for your everyday health. Such as:
- Source of Vitamin C, to help build immune system and prevent sickness such as the common cold
- Balances pH levels
- Lemon contains pectin fiber which is great for your colon
- Helps prevent growth of certain bacterias
- Provides energy to liver enzymes which in turn helps keep a healthy liver
- Helps with wrinkles (Luckily I do not have wrinkles yet, so I can not tell if this has personally helped)
- Helps replenish salt levels
- Can help with dental problem (freshens breath, relieve toothache and gingivitis)
As you can see this stuff is basically magic! Yet it is so simple and such an easy thing to add into your morning routine. Instead of drinking your regular tea or coffee in the morning, try this lemon detox and I am sure you will reap the benefits like I have.
Being a full time college student I am short on time some mornings. I try to stay healthy therefore making my own food seems like the best option. Here are a couple quick breakfast ideas for when you’re short on time!
This has been one of my favorite breakfasts so far! (Current obsession)
Toasted Bagel Thin smeared with crunchy almond butter topped with banana slices and drizzled in honey. Yum!!
Another super easy breakfast idea is a quick breakfasts sand which.
Once again toast a bagel thin and cook your egg to the desired way, add some cooked spinach and top with shredded cheese!
Thanks for stopping by!
As a full time college student I am short on time, so cooking full out meals is not really an option for most days. This year was the first year I found myself having a full kitchen while at school so I have had to learn to fend for myself and go grocery shopping. It is great being able to make your own foods, but somedays you just do not have the time and patience, or even skill, to make a home cooked meal.
My breakfasts are usually quick and easy, and I try to get in a nice hearty meal for breakfast to fuel me for my long day.
A recent new favorite breakfast of mine involves NO COOKING at all, which is great and quick! If you happen to just be an atrocious cooker and even burn your toast, than the toasted bagel may not be an option for you. ;P
Toasted Thin Bagel with Cream Cheese
Since moving into an apartment with a full size kitchen I have been making most of my meals from scratch! But as a college student, you don’t have as many options for food, especially if you are a novice cooker like myself.
I have found myself already getting bored with my food choice, so I decided to mix up my breakfast a bit and try experimenting with different fruits and veggies to find yummy smoothies!
This morning I added in some greens, which I usually do not do, unless I know it will taste good. Unfortunately this smoothie was not one of my favorites, but I would still make it again if the only things left in my fridge were these items.
Spinach & Kale
Chia Seeds & Camu Powder (for extra nutrients)
I am loving my blue mason jar cups! Aren’t they adorable?!
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day!
I always make sure I start my day off with a nice big breakfast, and I like to be quick about it. Therefore, my breakfast meal is usually the same every morning. But I am still not tired of it!
If you want to find out how to make a delicious breakfast in just over a couple minutes then keep reading!
My Nature’s Path Oatmeal is by far my favorite. It only takes 75 seconds in the microwave and all you need is a 1/2 cup of water!
Once my oatmeal is done I take it out and add however much honey and cinnamon I am feeling. (Fun Fact: Use your local honey, it helps to build an immunity to some allergies in your area)
Mix it all up and add in your almonds and fruit!
I usually use blueberries, but I love to add banana and strawberry if I am out of blueberries.
Ahhh, the perfect quick and easy breakfast!
