Glimpse of Sophia V.7

Finally Friday!

I am so ready to start this weekend off on a good note. I have so many to-do's from working on my resume to working on a supreme court case for my English class. For some weird reason, I have a ton of motivation and really have been seeking only happy things to look at!

1. One of my favorite things this week is my good friend Ashlyn recently got a baby husky! She is absolutely the most adorable thing on earth! She is such a good dog that is so calm yet super playful!

2.Recently I have been really getting into twitter, and I found this twitter account that shares pictures of adorable pictures of dogs doing different things! One of my favorites is this dachshund on stilts! It definitely brightens your day!

3. Have a lot of junk in your inbox? Use this amazing website to help unsubscribe and to limit down your inbox.

4. Carly from the College Prepster shared some really great tips for Blogging tips and they are all must see's for upcoming and current bloggers!

5. I have been in love with these shoes!! I posted this picture on my Instagram of them and everyone was adoring them! They are perfect for spring and I can't wait to wear them with some cute shorts.

6.One of my goals last week was to sell a lot of my clothes and to really minimize my closet. I recently have been using Poshmark and I am in love! They make it so easy to sell clothes and there are so many cute things you can buy! Check out my closet on Poshmark here.

Staying Hydrated

I feel as if this year's biggest trend at my school and everywhere, in general, have been water bottles. In particular S'Well bottles! I started seeing these last year in the Spring and I thought that they were a really good idea of being able to keep your drinks hot or cold for large amounts of time. I recently gave in and bought one and I do have to say that I am obsessed! I love how there are so many different patterns's and way's to make them different! But of course, S'well Bottles aren't the only options! Kate Spade and Lulu Lemon have adorable options and I shared the links with y'all bellow!

With having a cute water bottle picked out, my biggest tip with drinking more water is keeping it by your side at all times. I know me, and if my water bottle is sitting next to me while I work on the computer, I will be more compelled to drink it since it's there! If you have a meeting or just in class, always keep it on your table just so you can see it and have access to it if you want a quick drink.

What is your favorite water bottle and way's to stay hydrated?

Glimpse of Sophia V. 6

This week has been so much fun! I have been really getting back into the groove of things after coming off of a long weekend, but I am back in action. And this week I definitely have done a good job at prioritizing and I was able to get so much done blog wise! But never the less, here are my favorite things form this week!

Picture via @PrepAvenue

1. I changed the name of my weekly series! Let me know what y'all think!

2. Finally joined the S'Well bottle family! I am in love with this print and I'm thinking about purchasing this cap. I also bought this monogram to put on it so set it apart from everyone else's. 

3. If you follow @alishylishy on Instagram, then you probably know about A Color Story App. I have been using it for the past month and I love it! There are so many different options with the lights and filters.

4. I have been on the hunt for the perfect pink nail polish, and I finally found it! Fiji from Essie is my definite recommendation!

5. I just purchased these adorable sandals from Forever 21 and I cannot wait to pair them with some navy shorts and a cute top!!

6. And just to kick off your Friday, check out this adorable video of a hamster going to Disney World. It may sound really lame, but it's adorable how small all of the things are for him!!

Wednesday, February 17, 2016


For the past couple of months, I have been really working hard at my new years resolutions. And for the most part, they are going well! But with my birthday being this past Sunday, it really hit me this year. 

I am 17! 

(Where on earth did the time past!) 

Something in me changed in me this year, where I am starting to enjoy the little simple things in life. Such as clothing and just my daily chores. And I think that a majority of that is with me changing this year and really getting my act together.

In the end, what I'm trying to say is that I really want to focus on blogging more and to really start to show y'all the content that I was to show you. I have so many great things in store and I cannot wait to show you! 

PS. There may or may not be a new outfit post tomorrow :)

Week With Sophia V.5

With the amount of weather mood swings to the countless amounts of power outages, I do have to say that this week was really fun! 

Cardiobarre Love

I haven't shared yet, but recently I quit dancing. Why you may be asking? Mostly due to how expensive it is and how as my high school years go on and on, it becomes more and more harder to balance everything. But just recently I have been getting back into the rhythm of the gym and as one of this months item on my bucket list, I decided to try a barre class! And let me tell you, I LOVED IT! It was exactly what I needed when looking for something too keep my flexibility from Ballet but still getting in a good cardio workout. I would highly suggest trying out your local barre class.

Perfect Mani's

This might be weird, but one of my favorite things is looking at perfect mani's on Pinterest. I always wondered why my nails never looked like them and I quickly realized that it was because my nails have never grown so long. So this past week I made it a mission of mine to grow them long and get them painted. I was able to do this and they turned out perfect! I realized that this was definitely something that is a great thing to "Treat yo self" when your stressed!

Girls Night

My friends and I have made a point that we go out as a group and have a fun Friday night. Lately we mostly go out to dinner and then get a sweet treat after. I love catching up with them and having some down time. Plus we get dressed up usually and take some cute photos, of course!

Sneak peek to the next few post's

I have so many exciting things to come for the next few weeks and I cannot wait to share with y'all! They all mostly relate back to Valentines day. So be sure to be on the look out these next two weeks.

February Bucket List

How in the world is February already here!

 I cannot be more excited that my birthday month and my favorite time is already come and we are beginning it. With my post yesterday about my seasonal goals, I began to think about how I can break that down into little monthly goals! I absolutely love the idea of list's (Who doesn't?) and I have been loving how Carly has been doing Monthly Bucket Lists. Her list from January really sparked up some ideas with me, and thus I came up with all of what I hope to complete for this month.

Last month, I did pretty well as far as following my goals for the year and even my seasonal goals! But I'm hoping that will the challenges that I'm trying on myself this month, that I will be able go through with a majority!

Seasonal Goals

The other day I was looking at my 2016 goals that I posted about a couple of weeks ago about, and I couldn't help but think about how every year I end up never follow through with them. I then began to think about effective ways to keep up with them, and I remembered reading years ago from Carly from the College Prepster about how she set a specific thing that she wanted to work on each month. 

With that inspiration in mind, I decided to create my own version of that. I have created a tab for the top of my blog titled Aspirations. Here you will find my goals by season of what I would like to work on. 

I find that this method would be much easier for me to manage, plus I can change them as seasons go!

Let me know what you think of this idea!
