TBR Thursdays: Summer Reading List

I'm actually really excited to start this series. While this will be more of a monthly feature, I'm happy to start doing TBR Thursdays or "To Be Read" Thursdays. Since it's gonna be summer soon, I thought it was the perfect time to start this series as I finally can dive back into my love of books and read the books I've had to put off due to school and having to opt for textbooks instead. I've loved books since I was a little kid and so here are some of the books I want to read this summer. Some are ones that just came out or will be released soon and others are simply ones I've been meaning to read.

I'm a Graduate :)


With my parents, after the ceremony
Go Class of 2014!! So I'm pretty sure I mentioned in a few of my previous posts that I was graduating soon. Well graduation finally took place last Monday and is partly to blame as to why I haven't blogged in over a week. I still can't believe that this all went down just a week ago, but yes I did it!

Weekly Recap/Favorites of the Week

{Source: Washington Post}
So this week you are getting a weekly recap post instead of a Friday Favorites one. I meant to do this on Friday, but I got caught up watching shows online with my mom and then it was just too late. So instead you get this sort of recap/Favorites of the Week. Hope you can forgive me. Also I'm graduating from college tomorrow which makes me both excited and nervous. Anyway, enjoy.

What's in my Gym Bag



Today I wanted to share what I have in my gym bag since I've been hitting the gym more often and also to tie it in with this week's posts since I've been dedicating them to fitness and health. The following is what I've packed in my gym bag for tomorrow, but it is what I usually pack in it any time I'm heading to the gym anyway. This helps me be ready to go and not be tempted to skip the gym.

Wellness Wednesday: Healthy Links



Today I want to start a new weekly feature I've been thinking about for some time now, Wellness Wednesday. While Workplace Wednesday will still appear from time to time, I also want to begin sharing more fitness/health/wellness topics on here since it's such a big part of my life. It also helps that this week is National Women's Health Week. So today I wanted to share some of my favorite websites or healthy links that I go to for nutrition and fitness tips and such. Enjoy :)

Look Cute at the Gym


Cute WO Clothes

Cute WO Clothes by astridstars featuring a forever 21 activewear

As I previously mentioned, most posts this week will be fitness/health related in honor of National Women's Health Week. So today I wanted to share what I like wearing to the gym instead of the usual Trendy Tuesday. These are items that I feel are cute yet perfect for the gym. Let's begin :)

National Women's Health Week


In case you didn't know(which I didn't until I read my Her Campus email), this week is National Women's Health Week. Therefore, I've pledged to take the steps to live a longer, healthier, and happier life. It's actually a perfect coincidence as I'm now putting my full focus into the Tone It Up Bikini Series now that finals are over and done with, and I'm ready to bring it!

Friday Favorites: Finals Week Version


Yay, Friday Favorites is back. This week's is going to be another short and simple one since it was a pretty crazy week. It was my finals weeks so to speak even though next week is the official finals week at my school. However, my professors opted for the final project route and the last of them were due today, except one. It is such a relief(and slightly weird feeling) to be ending the last semester of undergrad, not counting summer internships. That being said, it was a stressful means to an end. Thankfully however, there were a few bright spots throughout the sleepless week.

Influenster #VivaVoxBox

{Source: Me}
First off, I'd like to apologize for going almost a whole week without blogging, it really wasn't my intention. As some of you may know, I'm graduating soon so I was tied up finishing up final projects. I wish I was doing far more exciting things, but it was all school's fault LOL. But to make it up, I decided to share my very first Influenster VoxBox that I received a few weeks ago.
You even get a video ;)
