Hey everyone! Long time– I know! I love eating healthy, although times like now, during finals, the importance of my nutrition tends to deprioritize. This recipe I’m about to show you for my salad above (yes, I took that photo of my photogenic meal with my android) is a mix of a few recipes I found online, plus my own twist of whatever I had in my fridge at the time…you’ll especially like this if you like chipotle or taco salads. When it comes to portions, I’m not really sure, I just feel that if you like something in your salad put more, if you don’t, put less. Also, I’m not sure how many people this serves…depends how much you eat haha… So here goes… Continue reading “My Quinoa Salad Recipe!”

Hair Tutorial: Big Cornrows + No-Heat Waves For Days!

Hello everyone! One of my favourite no-heat hairstyles is just simple, wavy hair! I don’t like how regular braids just get the lower half of the hair wavy, so I do big cornrows all around my head to get the waves started from the roots! You can also do french braids instead of cornrows, but I prefer the texture the cornrows gives the waves! In … Continue reading Hair Tutorial: Big Cornrows + No-Heat Waves For Days!

8 Tips for Long, Healthy Hair

Hair Photo

Hey everyone! I recently just had my hair dyed and I am super excited about it. Both above photos were taken 24 hours apart, and I don’t know how I like my hair better. I’m still not used to it being lighter, I really loved my black-brown hair. Yes, I realize that people get their hair done everyday, but this was my first time in four years and I LOVE talking about hair so bare with me! In this blog post, I wanted to give you guys my hair story and share some tips to grow your hair long and keep it healthy. I’ve done this before, and made videos, but I took them down, due to some updated methods I’ve chosen. My whole life, pretty much, I’ve gotten questions about my hair, or if it’s real or extensions, how I keep it healthy, and all that…

People often ask, how do you keep your hair so long, and it’s not dried out? Well, I actually had a long journey to where I’m at today. I’ll give you all some background, so that maybe someone with the same or similar hair type to mine can use my advice! Continue reading “8 Tips for Long, Healthy Hair”

5 Tips to get BACK into School Mode

What’s up everyone? Happy Friday! So, for most of us students, we’ve just finished our second week back at school after a long Christmas break where we either slept, worked, hung out, ate, or something totally unrelated to practicing equations or writing 5000 word essays, for majority of the time. My Christmas break was spent in my hometown, where I was only awake for at least 4-5 hours of daylight, and worked at the local sports lounge. I have found it a little challenging to get back into organizing my life and waking up at decent hours, that i have decided to create a list of ways that will make our lives easier.

I realize most of these “back-to-school” lists come out before the break even ends, but many people don’t realize they need some “assistance” until they start falling behind, so people, I am here to help you. It doesn’t have to be January 1st to have a “perfect” start to the year. Your perfect start can be on Monday, January 20th, and be just as good. So, let’s get started…

1. Sleep Schedule

My sleep schedule for all 23 days of my Christmas break was: go to bed at three or four in the morning and wake up at one or two in the afternoon the next day. An effective way to back that schedule back on track in a jiffy is NOT to force yourself to go to bed early (this won’t work because you’ll only just lay there until the time you usually go to bed), but try to wake up at six or seven in the morning. It doesn’t matter if you’ve gone to bed at 4:00 am…just WAKE UP before 8, and you’ll be able to go to bed by ten or eleven the next day, voila! You’re welcome.
