If there’s one thing I have learned about myself while in college it’s that I love learning about people. How they think, how they talk and more importantly, why they talk and think that way. Through the many communications classes I’ve taken and the research I’ve had to read, I have come across much research that discusses positivity. As a consistently pretty-positive person, I’ve been fascinated by the perceived benefits of positive thinking. Today, I’m going to start by telling y’all exactly what differentiates positive thinking from different types of thinking and ways YOU can make subtle changes to the way you think (and talk) to reflect a more positive lifestyle. So get your snack and a cup of your favorite beverage and get settled – you’re in for some ol’ fashioned learning.
Seriously happy Thursday, y’all. This week has been the most but thankfully it’s almost over. Today, I’m going to be talking about food, sort of. Yesterday, I asked Tucker what to blog about – none of the ideas I have written down were speaking to me. I forget exactly what he said, but something he said made a light bulb in my head go off, so he gets credit for today’s blog post. Now, I don’t know about you, but figuring out what to cook can get old, very quickly. Even though I love Pinterest (seriously, check out my multiple food-related boards), it’s sometimes hard for me to turn pins into real life meals. Enter television. I love the Food Network and could happily watch cooking shows for the rest of my life. I don’t know what it is about watching other people cook, but it’s weirdly therapeutic and inspiring. Here are my favorite cooking shows to watch pretty much all the time, but especially when I’m feeling uninspired by the ingredients in my kitchen.
Happy Tuesday, friends! A few months ago, I shared my 5-minute face that was quick, easy and perfect for work. Since starting my senior year (EEK!), I have rediscovered the YouTube beauty community (check out my post on some of my favorite YouTubers here) and my interest in makeup and skincare products. Since this rediscovery I have made a conscious effort to use the makeup I have (and new products) and have been very pleased with the results. Today, I’m sharing my foundation routine that makes my skin look more even and glowy!
