So I am very self conscious when it comes to wearing swimwear. I bloat so easily and can’t refrain from eating so my stomach automatically grows. What can I say, I love food (the bad kind). I often resort to sticking to one pieces to hide the bloating and because I feel more comfortable. THANK GOD THEY’VE BEEN IN STYLE!

Although certain styles flatter certain body types over others, the ones I own are very universal and can flatter almost all body types.

I’ve listed my favorite styles below and links to buy them and similar ones.

I don’t really own many bathing suits so if you have any favorite brands please share with me!!

Finals Survival

The stress is killing me and the countdown to winter break feels eternal! Here are 5 easy tips to survive finals week!

1. Hydrate! Drink lots of water because dehydration will decrease exam performance (according to this study). Even bring your own bottle with fruit infused water. Shop the bottle above here!

2. Headphones! Record yourself reciting some of your notes and replay them throughout the day of the exam or in the car ride/walk to it! Shop the headphones above here.

3. Exam Attire! During exams, my appearance is not up to par. I love to be comfortable and wear hats to hide my horrendous eye bags and stressed face. Shop the James Perse hat above here.

4. Supplies! Pack your calculator, pens, pencils, highlighters the night before the exam to ensure you aren’t forgetting anything! I love this Swarovski pen!

5. Snacks! Pack some easy, healthy snacks for those long hours in the library. A yummy granola bar and apple should do the trick!

Now finish studying and kill it!



H&M x Balmain Favorites

Call me crazy, but I am currently staying up to head over to H&M at 4 A.M. Olivier Rousting is one of my favorite designers so this collaboration between H&M and Balmain has me ecstatic. His attention to detail is pristine and the way he masters making a piece so edgy yet delicate at the same time makes him such a successful and unique designer. So as I stay up to ensure I am one of the first people in the store, I put together some of my favorite pieces from the collection including some of the ones I plan to purchase.


What I hope to buy: Belt $99 | Pants $99 | Bandeau $35
