Lush Woods

Yesterday I went for a hike with my sister and dad after yoga class. I've been trying to do something active every day to help increase my fitness. I try to stick to activities that I truly find enjoyable, since it feels less like working out and more like fun. 

The woods were absolutely gorgeous. We came across ruins from an old kiln and remnants of an old forest fire. I didn't know this before, but forests can actually grow back stronger than ever after a fire as it helps to return nutrients to the soil. Pretty cool!

Simple Stripes

Top: J. Crew Factory // Jeans: Paige ( similar, similar) // Shoes:  Converse
Bag: Tory Burch ( similar) // Aviators:  Similar

I'm all about simple pieces for spring that are casual but really bring an outfit together. I'm obsessed with J. Crew Factory's striped long sleeve shirts! I have them in a few colors and I get so much use out of them. They're thicker than a regular t-shirt, which is perfect for a chilly or windy spring day. I'm guilty of wearing this exact outfit or a variation a lot lately. I really love the combination of the red shirt with blue sunglasses for an added pop of color.

While shooting, we ran into lots of geese with their babies. I'm not the biggest fan of geese since my campus is full of them and they can actually be pretty scary. During mating season they get very territorial and protective of their young, so they WILL attack if you get too close. I was almost attacked once and it was terrying lol.

Friday Favorites

1. I finally made my final decision about grad school! I'll be doing my Master's in Public Health at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario in the fall. I'm passionate about improving health through programs and policies, so this program is a great fit for me. I almost went to Queen's for undergrad but too many people from my high school were going, so in the end I went to a school where I didn't know a single person. Queen's wasn't originally my top choice for grad school, but it quickly grew on me. I heard about how tight-knit the program is, with small class sizes and professors who know your name. Also, Kingston is such a cute town with lots of cafes, restaurants, and things to do, which is an added bonus.

2. Zaful is sending me some bathing suits. I'm extremely curious to see what the products are like in person, since the prices seem too good to be true and I've read mixed reviews online. You can expect an honest review from me once they arrive.

3. I read another book this week, That Night by Chevy Stevens. I added my review under my Reading List.  It was pretty bad and I wouldn't recommend it, however, I listed several other great options on my reading list.

4. Harry Styles' album is actually pretty good! I really love Carolina. So catchy!

5. If you're looking for discounted Lululemon clothes, then check out their "We Made Too Much" page, where they have final sale items. Now that I'm working out again I've been looking at a few items, including their "Free To Be Zen" bra and these cut-out leggings. They're still a bit pricey, but Lululemon lasts forever. I still have a pair of shorts from middle school!

6. Emily from Ivory Lane revealed her son's newly decorated bedroom. It's amazing!

7. There's a new Master of None season on Netflix! I'm excited to watch. I love how real the show is.
