FASHION

I absolutely love spring and summer fashion! It’s so light and airy and happy. A few of my favorite pieces for this season are florals, floppy hats, and chunky heels. These pieces are so cute paired together too! Hats just as such a touch of elegance to an outfit if paired with the right outfit.

This dress is from Jessa Kae and is my absolute favorite dress of all time. It’s made with the lightest, softest material and has the cutest geometric pattern. The shoes are from Toms and are the most comfortable heels ever! They go with practically everything, from jeans and a cute shirt to dresses. I got this hat from H&M, and I’m obsessed. It adds a gorgeous touch to any outfit!

SKINCARE

Skincare is so important in the spring, due to the temperatures changing, more sunlight, and humidity.

First up is my absolute favorite moisturizer. The Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator leaves my skin so hydrated without making it oily.  It has aloe water and hyaluronic acid, which is the perfect combination for hydrated skin.

Next is the Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum with SPF 40. This product can be worn alone or as an invisible makeup primer! It acts as a sort of tinted moisturizer; I never even have to wear foundation when I have this on. It also has SPF 40, which is PERFECT for hot spring days.

The Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment is my all-time favorite charcoal mask (and trust me, I’ve tried almost all of them). This mask has a mix of black and white charcoal, where white charcoal is known to absorb 1,000 times its weight in impurities. The charcoal pair works together to minimize the appearance of pores while lifting away impurities and excess oil. I’m obsessed with this mask because it leaves y skin so smooth and clear so I hardly feel like wearing any foundation!

My favorite mascara right now is the LashCraft Big Volume Mascara by Sephora Collection. It lengthens my lashes so much with just one coat! This mascara lasts all day, even through working out at the gym & the high humidity levels ( gotta love living in the south:) ).

How To Eat Clean On Roadtrips

Hey y’all! When I travel, I find it hard to not just go through a drive-through and get a large order of fries and a sweet tea. And, although I try to eat semi-healthily when I travel, somehow fries and sweet tea still magically end up next to me. In this post, I’m going to be telling you a little about how I eat clean while traveling. (there’s no shame in fries though. A Chick-fil-a is on my way home from class and you can bet your bottom dollar that those beautiful waffle fries end up in my cup holder with some Polynesian sauce at least once a week. it’s called balance. don’t judge.)  

ONE.  

Chick-fil-a. As much as I love their fries, I sometimes feel the need to get a salad or yogurt. For breakfast, I like getting their Greek yogurt parfait, and for lunch/dinner, I love their superfood side salad. This salad has kale, broccoli, raisins, and a yummy vinaigrette. Super healthy, tasty, and fast!

TWO.

Chipotle. Ok, I know, there aren’t many chipotles when you’re on a road trip. But this is my favorite place to go when I want a quick, healthy, filling meal. I get a veggie bowl with white rice, black beans, corn salsa, salsa verde, cheese, guac, and a side of hot salsa. (I really like salsa). This bowl is relatively healthy and packed with protein from the beans. You also get your carbs from the rice and healthy fats from the guac, so this bowl is the whole deal. It is also a TON of food and bowl usually lasts me two meals.

THREE.

Taco Bell. Ok, to be honest, taco bell isn’t high on my list. But when it’s been too many hours of driving through nothing but farms (this has happened many times, see the picture below) and you get to a little town with a taco bell and maybe a McDonald’s and you are HUNGRY,  go for the Taco Bell and get their Veggie Power bowl. It has rice, beans, lettuce, sour cream, guac, and pico, so it’s decently healthy, I just normally try go for better quality foods. But hey, its actually really good, and it fills you up on long road trips.

FOUR. 

Starbucks. They have some pretty good options regarding food, and my favorite is the Cheese & Fruit Protein Box. This box has brie, cheddar, and gouda with multigrain crackers and a full cup of fruit. They sell these in most Starbucks stores, so they’re pretty available on road trips. (also Starbucks has packets of sriracha hot sauce. If you know me, you know I eat hot sauce on almost everything, so I stock up on these little packets on road trips.)( also pt. 2 the one thing I don’t like about being up north is the lack of sweet tea. Therefore, southern girl here needs her sweet tea and tried to be clever by ordering a sweetened black tea at a Starbucks in Chicago. It was sub-par as far as southern sweet tea goes, and reminded me that there’s nothing quite like good old southern sweet tea)

FIVE.

Publix / Target  / any grocery store with a deli. For when you have a little more time to spare, supermarket delis have a great selection of on-the-go salads, sandwiches, and other healthy snacks. You can even stock up on some bananas, veggie chips, and other healthy snacks while you’re there to avoid the “it’s been hours driving through farmland with no food and there’s only a taco bell and I’m tired of drive-thrus” scenario. 

Alright y’all, that’s a wrap!

Keep it classy.
