How to Grow Out Your Nails

IMG_3194.jpg

I love having long healthy nails but I know it is not as easy as it might seem to get the nails you desire, they break, chip, snag, tear, etc. Here are some tips to help grow your nails.

Moisturize

Dry hands are a no no when it comes to healthy long nails. You should moisturize your hands like you moisturize your face. This is extremely important in the winter when your skin is the driest.

Don’t bite your nails

Biting your nails can be a bad habit and this bad habit is a surefire way to inhibit nail growth. 

File your nails

Filing your nail strategically can actually help your nails grow. If there is a small tear in your nail don't make the tear bigger file that part of your nails. 

Always wear a base coat 

Most people when wearing finger nail polish put a top coat but forget the base coat. The base coat helps protect your nails from getting stains from the polish. 

Good Diet
Having a well balanced diet is a great base for your nails to grow. Eating the nutrients you need and water you need in your diet not only will help your nails but it will also help your skin and hair.

Hello October! I can not believe how fast September flew by but October has to be one of my top five months out of the year. I really enjoy all of the fall clothes and the colors change in the leaves, not to mention Halloween. As you probably already know I start back at school so September was just a month of seeing how my classes were and gauging how much homework I would have and how much study time I would need for those classes along with my work schedule. So that is why I have not been posting as mush as I would like but I now think I have found a schedule that work for me. This month is all about getting back on track with my blog and social media. I have a lot of new content coming that I am super excited about so stay tuned!  

October Goals

  • Be productive and better time management. 
  • Get out and take more pictures with my camera.
  • Stay on top of my blog and social media post.
  • Do some fall cleaning around the house.
  • Go to a pumpkin patch.
  • Do some more Fall/Winter shopping.
  • Try some new fall recipes.

 

Things You Should Avoid Before Bed

IMG_3079.jpg

There are some things you should never do before going to bed. I know from experience what a no no before bed time like watching a scary movie. Here are some other things you should avoid before going to bed.

Spicy Foods - Eating spicy foods before going to bed can give you indigestion and heartburn.

Caffeine - Caffeine before bed can keep you up all night.

Exercise - Exercising before bed can keep you heart rate up making it hard to go to sleep.

A lot of Water - Drinking a lot of water can keep you up all night because every 5 minutes you will need to get up and go to the bathroom. 

Scary Movies - Watching a scary movie before bed is not the best idea. You will definitely have nightmares and not be able to sleep.

Lots of Sugar -  Too much sugar before bed can make you feel jittery and keep you up.

What are somethings avoid before going to bed?

College Style Essentials

I can't believe I am saying this but school is right around the corner, which means summer is coming to an end :( I personally start classes in about two weeks and for all of you guys that are going back to school I hope you have an amazing school year.  So in the spirit of school starting I thought I would share my college style essentials. When going to class these are the items that I wear religiously.

Jeans

Jeans are my go to when going to class. I where skinny, cropped and my favorite boyfriend jeans to class with a nice graphic tee. It's easy and simple and you really don't have to put much thought into the outfit.

Leggings

On my chill and lazy days leggings are always an option. I normally will pair my leggings with an oversize t-shirt and some sneakers. It is one of my most relaxing college outfits.

Basic Top / Graphic Tees

I will pair a basic top or graphic tee with a skirt, jeans, leggings, joggers, short, literally anything. You can where these tops causal or dress them up.

Pencil Skirt / Black Dress

So sometimes especially at the end of the semesters I will have to do presentations for some of my classes and some of them will require you to dress up. I will normally do a pencil skirt or a dress with a cardigan. 

Sweatshirt

Sweatshirt are my go to when the weather is bad. Mainly because who really wants to go to class when it raining or snowing, Not me! So I will just throw on a sweatshirt or hoodie with some leggings and unwillingly go to class. Ugh!

Hats

My favorite especially when it's cold or I am having a bad hair day is hats. Preferably a beanie or baseball cap.  I am telling you they are a life saver.

Sneakers

When walking all over campus it is important to have a good pair sneakers. I make sure I get something that's comfy but stylish at the same time.

Watch

I normally will wear a watch to some of my classes because some professors are really strict on have cell phones out in class. So to keep track of the time I will just wear a watch so I don't have to sneak and look at my phone for the time.

Joggers

Joggers is another lazy day clothing item that I wear at least twice a week. I am telling you these are so comfortable. A must have!

Umbrella

Keeping a small but cute umbrella in your bag is something I strongly recommend, I don't know how many times I have went to class and after I am done it is randomly raining outside.

Backpack

Last but not least is a backpack, essential for any college student. Any backpack is fine but personally I like waterproof backpack with multiple compartment for all of my many things, and comfortable straps.  

What are some of your college style essentials?
