Latest Obsessions + February Goals

Hello beauties!

The weather in Michigan has been not so amazing lately but, that is not bringing a damper on my mood because we have made it to February! So far, everything has been great this month. Everything in my life seems to be moving forward in a positive direction and it shows no signs of slowing down! Last week we had the whole week off school because of horrible snowstorms and freezing temperatures so I was able to sit and relax all week, which was amazing. Last week was a time for relaxing but, I was able to get a lot organized for this blog. It is that time of the month for my latest obsessions and goals blog post, and I am so pumped to share all of my favorite things with you!

Hydro Flask Waterbottles 

I have been looking for a new replacement water bottle and I have found one that I absolutely love! It is not super clunky, it can hold a great amount of water to it, and it keeps my water in the bottle cold for hours. It is a little bit expensive but totally worth the price for a long lasting waterbottle!

Apple Airpods 

I received a pair of Airpods for Christmas and I have to say, I have fallen in love. I used to hate that anywhere I went, I had this long dangling cord getting in the way of everything, but now I don’t have to worry about that anymore! They are perfect when I go workout or when I’m on the go for classes. I am never using my old headphones again!

YOU on Netflix 

This was one of my many obsessions over January, but I am sharing it now. Oh my gosh, what a show! It hooked me from the start and I finished it within a matter of days. It’s a very twisted show about a bookstore keeper who falls in love with this aspiring writer which leads to a very strong addiction towards her, causing him to do whatever it takes for love. It is so unbelievably crazy and I would 10/10 recommend to anyone who is looking for a new show to binge on Netflix. I can’t wait for season 2!

Lavender Lattes 

If you are looking for a little spin on your typical coffee order, then you HAVE to try lavender lattes! The lavender adds a totally unique flavor which is to die for. If you know a place near you who offers this coffee style, try something new and enjoy!

Kayla Itsines BBG Workout 

This workout is a butt-kicker, but it is actually amazing. It is a 12-week workout program focusing on weight loss. I am a person who finds it hard to work out if I don’t have a solid plan to follow but this plan lays everything out very simple and doesn’t require a ton of equipment. It’s circuit training which means that I have 4 exercises that I repeatedly do in a 7-minute time limit, rest, do the second circuit and then 30 minutes of cardio! It really kicks your butt, but it is totally worth it. If you need a new routine, go check out this workout plan!

Now time for the goals:

  • Create a posting schedule for social media & Hannah Rose blog
  • Travel somewhere new
  • Go on more dates with Nick
  • Create a savings plan
  • Finish one book outside of normal class readings
  • Start meditation routine

I hope all of your February’s are off to a great start so far and I am so excited to see what this month has in store for me. There is so much more content that is in the works for all of you to read and I am so pumped to post. You are all beautiful and I hope you have an amazing rest of your week. I will talk to you all again soon!

My Last Year Advice & Goals for the Year

Hello beautiful people!

I’m sorry it has been a while since I have last talked to you all, I have been taking some time off blogging to spend time with friends & family before classes start. I had been desperately needing some time to decompress & refocus before this school year started, but now I am back & ready to kick this year off right! It is absolutely crazy to me that I am already in my senior year of college. It honestly doesn’t even feel real & let me tell you the time flew by so freaking fast. I have changed so much since coming into college & I am so beyond blessed to have made so many great friends, my lovely boyfriend & made memories that will last me a lifetime! I have learned so much since I first started at Grand Valley & I wanted to share some takeaways from the past few years today. So let’s get started!

IMG_20180827_174938.jpg

Never turn down an opportunity

College is the time to try new things! Coming into everything my first year, I had no clue that there would be a club or event for literally everything under the sun. I never thought that I would be a part of a newspaper team, but the opportunity came for me to do photography for our school newspaper & I just couldn’t let that opportunity slip through my fingers. Don’t be afraid to try things that you never thought you would do & go after every opportunity!

Connect with your professors 

I didn’t learn this one until my second year of school, but connecting with your professors is the best advice I can give! Your professors are there to help you in any way they can. Becoming close with your professors can help you better enjoy the class & possibly open up new opportunities for your career field! When I first came into the advertising major, I was worried I wouldn’t connect with any professors, but once I met them & made an effort to get to know them, the easier it was for me to enjoy my class!

Don’t stretch yourself too far

You get busy & that is a part of life. I know you will want to get involved in everything & be a part of many different things in college, but this is also a time to have fun & not worry about too many things. Enjoy your free time & don’t let yourself become overly busy!

Make friends for life

I was always told that the people you meet in college would become your best friends for life & this has been 100% true. I came to college not knowing if I would connect with anyone else the way I did with my friends from high school, but I have made friendships that I know will last a lifetime!

Failure is OK

Something that was hard for me to grasp was failure. I was an all around A/B student in high school & coming into college I thought it would remain the same, but I was definitely wrong about that. After my first semester at college, I was put on academic probation which ended up kicking my butt back into high gear & got me back to where I needed to be. Failure is a part of life & it is important to learn from your mistakes and be able to move forward! So next time you fail at something, don’t let it bring you down, use that as a stepping stone to do better next time.

Be You

It is ten times more tiring being someone else so, just be Y-O-U! I promise everything will fall into place if you just be yourself. When I first started at Grand Valley, I found myself trying to be something I just wasn’t. Now I have found my own unique style & I couldn’t be happier! In anything you do just always stay true to yourself.

My past few years at Grand Valley have taught me so much (and I’m still not quite done) & I am so thankful for all the opportunity that this campus has brought to me. I cannot wait to see what this year has to hold for me. My goals this year are to savor every moment, continue to work hard & to learn as much as I can as I finish out my last year! I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week & continue to spread positive vibes wherever you go. Talk soon!

My Latest Obsessions + August Goals

Hey there everyone!

So we are already in August! Where did all the time go? I feel like this summer has flown by & my last year of college is right around the corner. I have been looking forward to August since this summer started, mainly because I am finally taking a week vacation! I am taking a road trip to New Hampshire with my boyfriend to visit family for a week. The past few years we have rented a cabin on this beautiful lake near my grandpa’s house & this year is our first time back in a year. I am especially excited for this year because it is the first year that my boyfriend is coming out to that side of the country! I have been going to New Hampshire since I was really young so, that fact that someone I love is finally coming to a place that holds a special place in my heart makes me super excited. Now that we are in this new month it means that it is time for new obsessions & new goals. I am pumped for what this month has to hold for me & I cannot wait to share these new obsessions with all of you!

Graphic Tees

There is nothing I have loved more this summer than throwing on a cute pair of shorts & a graphic T! They are comfortable & light for those warm summer days & easy to layer for a night on the town. Some of my favorites include anything with a cute coffee saying on it or hipster” 90’s references on it!

Planners 

We are only a few weeks away from classes starting again & to be honest, I am actually looking forward to it! Not really looking forward to homework, but I’m excited to finally be on a schedule again. I know, I know, I’m a weirdo! However, lately, I have just been missing having somewhere to be (besides work) or something to wake up in the morning for. I absolutely love shopping for planners for this time of year. They are versatile & planners make it easy for me to organize everything going on in my life at the moment!

Nailed It! 

I just recently came across this show called Nailed It on Netflix & boy oh boy is it something! I am someone who enjoys watching cooking shows especially really cheesy & funny ones so this show definitely delivers on the cheesy front. It’s all about not so great home bakers who try to match difficult Pinterest worthy recipes! It is honestly so stupidly funny & I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a good laugh.

Fate Crew Shop 

I absolutely adore this online store! They have super cute sunglasses & graphic T’s that are perfect for your summer wardrobe. I just bought a cute shirt from there  & I cannot wait to take pictures & share them with all of you. Their quality is great & I would 10 out of 10 recommend it to all of you!

Lavender Body Oil 

I received this oil, by WISH, in my FabFitFun box this summer & I cannot stop using it! I love the scent of lavender & I basically have it all over my room. It is such a refreshing & relaxing scent which makes it a must-have during nights that I can’t sleep or just need a little relaxation. I use a little dab of it on my arms before bed which helps me fall asleep faster & wake up feeling more refreshed in the morning. I absolutely love this product!

Now for some of my goals this month!

  • Get on a gym routine & stick with it
  • Take a break from my phone
  • Become more organized with my blogging
  • Make time for more adventures
  • Finish my summer book

What are some of your obsessions & goals for this month? Share some in the comments below! 

I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week (we are almost there)  & have a KILLER weekend! There is so much to look forward to this month & I am very excited to see what August has in store for me. I’ll talk to you all again soon!

My Latest Obsessions + July Goals

Hey there everyone!

The past couple of days I have really been struggling with motivation & inspiration to write content because it’s been so hot lately. But, I was able to finally sit down & crank out some great content that I am very excited to share with all of you very soon! I hope you all are having an amazing week & are ready to keep pushing through for the weekend. We have finally made it to July & I cannot believe that summer is literally halfway done! It doesn’t even feel real. However, a new month means new obsessions & goals to share with all of you!

Denim Skirts 

With this huge heatwave moving through Michigan I have been trying to find the perfect pieces to keep me nice and cool & denim skirts are doing the job. I have found so many cute skirts while thrifting & I am very excited to share all those looks with you!

Fruit Smoothies 

My favorite go-to drink this summer has been fruit smoothies! Not only are they good for you but, they will also keep you cool for those hot summer days. I love to either go out to Tropical Smoothie near my apartment or make my own at home!

Red Queen Series

I have just recently started this series & I am 100% hooked! The book is basically about a world divided by blood, Red or Silver, and basically follows the story of this young girl Mare who goes through many adventures of her own in this world. The style of the book is very similar to the Hunger Games (which I loved) so if you are into cool dystopian adventure books like I am, I would 10/10 recommend this book to you & I am very excited to finish the first book so I can go and read the rest of the series!

Elemis Papaya Enzymatic Exfoliant 

I shared this product on my last post for the FabFitFun Unboxing Summer 2018 & YOU GUYS this stuff is incredible! I absolutely am obsessed with this product. It naturally exfoliates your skin without any pain or irritation. I use it all the time & it has done wonders for my skin. If you are looking for a new amazing skincare product to try, I 100% recommend Elemis!

The Magnolia Journal 

I am someone who loves interior design & tips on bettering my lifestyle and this journal is a perfect read! I love reading & taking tips that I can apply to my everyday lifestyle. I love the aesthetic of the journal

Sushi Sushi Sushi

Now sushi is good every time of the year, but especially during the summertime, it is one of my all-time favorite things to eat! It is the perfect lightweight meal to help you withstand the summer heat. My favorite place to go in Grand Rapids is 1000% Maru Sushi. If you haven’t been before I totally encourage you to go try them out!

Now here are some of my July goals!

  • Go out on at least 2 adventurous dates with my boyfriend Nick
  • Try a new restaurant downtown
  • Try to go to the gym at least 4 times a week
  • Build up my social media presence
  • Organize my room (it’s in desperate need of that)
  • Sell/Donate clothes that I never wear
  • Find new areas to photograph for the blog

I hope you enjoyed reading my latest obsessions & goals for this month! I also hope that some of my goals inspire some of your own goals & help you move forward with lots of motivation and positivity for the rest of July. Have an awesome rest of your week & keep a look out for new content coming your way soon!
