So, as you can tell from my first Skincare Sunday blog post, I love going to trying out new skin and bath stuff from Lush and Sephora. I am a sucker for a good Lush fresh face mask. I love getting a little chunk of soap to lather up with in a shower. I love the fizzy bath bombs and the sweet smelling massage bars (especially when I’ve had a rough day that included three tests in three straight classes and a boatload of homework).
I just love everything about Lush. I love trying the cute seasonal products and always look forward to checking out what’s new. And, since I have tried a lot of face masks from Lush, I decided to make a little list of face masks that I would recommend.

Have I ever told you that I used to be afraid of HIIT workouts? I can’t even make this up. Before I started doing HIIT workouts, I was terrified of them. I was just scared that they’d be too hard and too exhausting… I just didn’t think I would like them at all.
But, I can now say that HIIT is one of my favorite ways to workout. I am now a big fan of high intensity circuits that keep you moving and burn loads of calories (while releasing some endorphins to make me feel like a boss). HIIT workouts are just the best.
And, since I love HIIT workouts so much, I decided to make my own HIIT workout. I have been doing a ton of different HIIT routines with different moves, but I haven’t really found a workout that had all of my favorites moves in it. So, I did what any person would do and made my own. Check it out:

I have a confession: I am a hardcore Sephora fanatic. There was one weekend where I went to Sephora four times… I went to Sephora four times in two days. (Note: I originally went in one day for face wipes and walked out with everything except face wipes… So, that accounts for two trips. The other two have no explanation other than I just got sucked in by the cool displays and always seem to find something new every single time I step foot in a Sephora.)

Well, I know that meal prepping can be daunting and scary. But, I am here to guide you through it. I am here to ease your fears and show you that meal prepping is so stinking easy… Even if you are a self-proclaimed “terrible cook”.
I used to be a terrible meal prep-er. I would either make too much and end up wasting some food because it went bad before I could finish it or I would make too little and have to improvise for a few meals a week (and end up eating cafeteria pizza with a whole lot of potato chips or an ice cream bar… three days in a row). But, I’ve finally cracked the code and figured out how to make this whole meal prepping thing work.

So, I know you have heard this quote a million times, but “If you fail to prepare, you are preparing to fail”. That quote could not be any more accurate than it is right now. When I forget to meal plan or just get too busy to make some sort of loose plan at the beginning of the week, I always end up eating random unhealthy snacks (I AM LOOKING AT YOU SALTINE CRACKERS) and really just don’t make good choices on the fly. I need to plan a little in order to keep me loyal to a healthy lifestyle.
Meal planning and prepping is a big part of the whole getting healthy thing. If you want to start being a little more healthy, then meal planning was made for you.
