Healthy eating?

I have been trying to make an honest effort into eating healthy.  I think that I (with the exception of a few times) have done pretty well sticking to eating more healthy meals.  I am trying to incorporate more fruit and veg into my regular diet.  I am struggling with variety, however, because I feel like I'm only eating the same three meals.  As you can imagine, this makes it very difficult to stay motivated.

I had a thought the other day, that I would maybe make more videos/blogs about making a variety of healthy-ish (more whole foods, and less processed) meals and desserts that I can share with you.  They of course would be based off an inexpensive/quick and easy lifestyle (because I am a college student and can't be bothered to take hours a day to cook).  I have always loved cooking, baking, and preparing food, so I think this would be a great way to incorporate one of my hobbies into this blog.  What do ya think?  Would you like to see this happen?  What kind of recipes would you like?

Thanks in advance for all of your suggestions and I look forward to showing you some delicious recipes :)


Peace out,

Life Update | Jan 2016

Oof-da!

The past couple of weeks have been hectic to say the least - hence why I have not been on the internet too much.  What have I been up too? Hmm well my spring semester of school started this week and it has basically been a week of feeling overwhelmed about all of the upcoming exams/projects/assignments and I just want to watch Netflix.  This is a problem for my motivation, as you can probably guess, especially since this is my last semester as a undergraduate college student and I am already experiencing my "senior slide".  Not good.  I just have to keep telling myself that I have come this far and I can make it until graduation. (Hopefully).  Anyways, my classes seem difficult and what makes it more difficult is that I am not very excited about taking any of them.  They're all classes that I have to take in order to graduate, so I guess I just have to suck it up and get through it.

Other than stressing about school and the impending future, I am spending most of my time trying to find a place to go for spring break.  Do you have any good places that we can go for spring break?  Only criteria is that it has to be warmer than Duluth.  Duluth is wayyyyy too cold for my body right not.  Help a sista' out!!


I hope you're doing well and enjoying life and all the things.

I will talk to you soon, hopefully more often than it has been, sorry :)

My Skincare Wishlist

Hi!
Like many people, I am obsessed with trying new beauty products.  Lately, I have been very interested in updating my skincare routine and find products that will help my skin become healthier overall.  I might make a video about it, so watch out for that. :)  I am a bit bored of my current skincare routine and I know that here will are lots(I mean LOTS) of new skincare products out on the market.  And I'm looking for some good ones.
After some research I have compiled a list of skincare products that I want to purchase and test out, here they are!

1. Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm
According to Sephora, this product is a hydrating cleansing balm that removes makeup and uses essential oils that calm irritation.  It has very natural products and has anice vanilla and sweet orange fragrance.  I have heard amazing things about the Sunday Riley brand, and although it is a little pricey($$$), I think that it will be a good purchase!

This product is formulated with "Amazonian White clay to gently draw out oil, dirt, and toxins that clog pores".  That sounds good to me!

Unfortunately, I still get the occasional pimple.  From the reviews and the product details, it seems like this product is the perfect serum to treat blemishes and also correct post pimple hyperpigmentation, all while relieving irritating redness.  Sign me up!


These are just a few of the products on my skincare radar in the near future.  Have you used any of these and are they worth the money? Please let me know!
Also, do you have any favorite holy grail skincare products that you swear by?  Let me know, I'd love to look into it :)


Until next time,
Em

A Trip to Como Zoo

Over the weekend, my dad, sister, and I decided to get out of the house and take a trip to Como Zoo.  I remember going to Como Zoo when I was a kid and I have very fond memories of it.  Here are some pictures that I took :)








Had a great time!
