Ahh productivity. It's a tricky thing, isn't it? These days, I'm distracted by just about anything and everything, and I sometimes find myself wasting the day away on miscellaneous tasks, only to be forced to stay up late at night in order to get actual work done. It's terrible! 

As they say, "Do something instead of killing time, because time is killing you." A bit morbid, but accurate — right?

Lately I've been implementing a few strategies to get my head back in the game, and they've been working so well that I just had to share with you guys, too.

Easy and Comfortable Last-Minute Easter Outfit Inspiration

Easy and Comfortable Last-Minute Easter Outfit Inspiration

For some reason, I never plan my Easter outfit out too far ahead. I've seen a number of bloggers dressed to the nines in gorgeous floral numbers and other festive frocks for the past few weeks, but I'm more of a last-minute kind of gal. I also don't love some of the stiffer looking pieces — you know the dresses that just look kind of hard to breathe/move around in? 

Instead, I'm taking more of a lax approach to my Easter attire this year and opting for my favorite flowy pastel maxi skirt. It's easy to style (#lazygirlapproved), and is absolutely killer if you're looking for something that just screams "Easter weekend".

Not only do they jet set around the world experiencing the best of each and every city under the sun, but they do it in style

Maybe I'm just speaking for myself, but lusting after clothes that are WAY out of my budget (which I typically stumble upon through street style blogs or Instagram) is just another day in the life of a broke-a** college girl. Ya know?

5 Must-Know Tips for Self-Care on the Go

5 Must-Know Tips for Self-Care on the Go

When life gets crazy (as it usually does), it’s not uncommon to find my car parked outside of a 7-Eleven as I dash inside to grab some refreshment like LIFEWTR before meetings. I’m constantly on the go, and nothing really tops this in terms of convenience. Trust me, I’m all about convenience.

Though I’m typically running around like a madwoman trying to stay true to all of my commitments, my personal health and wellness still remain at the top of my list. Always. It just has to. I know all too well what overworking myself looks like, and it’s not pretty!

The Weekend Edit: 36 Hours in Pittsburgh

The Weekend Edit: 36 Hours in Pittsburgh

Ahh another week, another "Weekend Edit".

This weekend was particularly fun, because I was in Pittsburgh visiting Richard & Pixie, our little Chi-Pom (Chihuahua x Pomeranian) pup. I wasn't able to stay long, since I had class this morning, but the short little vacay was much needed and appreciated. 

Also: for those of ya who don't know, R. is stationed in PA this semester for an internship, while I'm here in New York finishing up my undergrad degree. So, even just 36 hours spent together is better than nothing!
