Sharing my tips on how and why I balance medical school with working part time jobs, aka "side hustles" "I don't know how you do it all!" I get that a lot. And my initial gut reaction is, "Oh my goodness, I don't!" It's not very common to work during medical school anymore. (My mom worked her way through medical school though!) So, when people see that I also have a blog, Beautycounter business, and teach yoga, I suppose it seems a little crazy. But while I keep myself very busy, I . . .
I had always wanted to experience New York City at Christmas! It just seemed so magical with the big trees and department store windows and everything all lit up. Obviously I was really excited when I planned to visit my boyfriend here right before Christmas, and even more excited when he said he wanted to take me to see the Rockettes!! Bryant Park We got into the city mid afternoon yesterday and walked around Bryant Park for a little bit. We saw the tree, the ice skaters, and wandered some . . .
Sharing Three Things You Need To Know About Beautycounter. There are a few things I really need you to know about Beautycounter, especially as an eating disorder survivor and future physician.There are a lot of misconceptions about the company that I want to correct. I also want to make sure you know my stance on certain points. First, I'm not about making women (or men!) feel like they need to look different. I'm about empowering people to choose safer versions of the products . . .
Maybe you're like me, and you kind of go blank when people ask you what's on your holiday wish list. I am so lucky to not need anything. But my family runs on detailed Christmas list emails (so lame, but so helpful), and last week I started to get texts that I needed to get mine sent out ASAP! I decided just to make a list of things I'd love at a variety of price points. This way my family can pick a few things from the list, knowing I'll be thrilled with anything they choose. It's a pretty . . .
Hey friends! I took a little break from posting while I was studying for my OBGYN final this past week. (For all of you that ask how I "do it all" -- I don't!! My side gigs like this blog are set aside when I have a lot of school to focus on. I'm going to write a bigger post on balancing all of this over break.) But now that that test is over I am FREE for two whole weeks! I'm catching up on SO much life outside of school and my to-do list is a mile long. I'll be busy with all of that until I . . .
Happy Saturday!! I'm getting this post done while I wait for my boyfriend to wake up. He's here this weekend, which is such a treat!! It's been a month since since I've seen him because we both have a million things going on - way too long! My OBGYN final is on Friday so I have to study this weekend, but at least I get to study next to him. (This quote is getting me through right now!) Here's my weekly recap! Outfits: Scrubs and workout clothes, that's about it! Last night I . . .
I've shared a lot of gift guides, but I thought it'd be fun to show you the products i'm actually gifting this year! I can get away with this because no one in my family reads my blog. (Thanks guys?) I'm having to leave out a few friend gifts, but not too many. I'm actually not even sure how the gifting will work this year since we will be down in Hilton Head for the first time. Not all my gifts are travel friendly! I'll have to discuss with the family. Let's take a peak into my . . .
A gift guide full of great gifts for athletes, all so cute and high quality from New Balance! Thank you to New Balance St. Louis for sponsoring this post. All opinions and editorial decisions are my own. I told you guys about my awesome experience getting fitted for new cross trainers earlier this year. They remain my favorite shoes, and the leggings and top I got are also first picks in my workout rotation. Actually the fleece jacket, too. Basically I am loving all the New Balance . . .
Hey everyone! I haven't done a weekly recap for a few weeks, so we have a little to catch up on! I'm finally home with no travel for a while, so having my weekends to actually get work done is nice. I stayed in last night to study and work on blog/Beautycounter stuff. Today I am going to be working and then babysitting. And tomorrow I have weekend call on Labor & Delivery. Should be a productive weekend! Here's my (overdue) weekly recap! Outfits Friendsgiving outfit: Top (similar, . . .
Welcome to my list of of perfect gifts for students, with a special section just for medical students! Hey friends!! Sorry for the mixup with the premature post yesterday. I had scheduled it in hopes to get it up, but life and school got in the way. I just finally finished my schoolwork for today's lectures, so now I'll get going on it! Students are a fun group to gift because they are often short on cash, so little indulgences are a really big treat! There are gifts to go with studying, . . .
