review, skincare Kino Coconut Lilikoi Body Lotion Review * March 3, 2019

Hey lovelies! Today’s post is a review on this body lotion from Kino! Kino is a brand that sells hemp-derived CBD skincare products. Their products are cruelty free, paraben free, gluten free and all natural – and I’m in love with this hand and body lotion that I’ve been trying out.

You’ve probably heard of CBD before and might be wondering what it is and what it can be used for. It’s derived from hemp and it has some pretty great benefits – it cannot get you high, since it doesn’t contain THC. People use CBD for pain control and to relieve anxiety!

This lotion smells absolutely incredible and absorbs so quickly into the skin. I personally hate when lotions leave you sticky and take forever to absorb. Since this product has CBD in it, it promotes the body’s anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial response and the kukui nut oil, macadamia oil, and other oils in it helps to lock in moisture and soften the skin – which is something we all need during these cold winter months.

I love using it on my legs after shaving! It doesn’t burn my skin like some other lotions do after shaving and it leaves my legs so smooth and soft. It’s overall just a really great lotion that I highly recommend.

I hope you enjoyed the post! Have you ever used anything with CBD in it? What are your thoughts? 🙂 Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

lifestyle, review Ghost Bed Luxury Sheet Review * February 27, 2019

Hey guys! Today’s post is a re-post from a previous post I had up. I’ve been having some issues with my blog and recent posts since I switched hosting sites. I unfortunately wasn’t able to save my posts but I guess this is a learning lesson for myself and to be more mindful to keep backups of my posts.

So if you previously missed this post, well I guess you’re in luck since it’ll seem new to you!

Today I’m writing about these awesome luxury bed sheets from GhostBed. I always have trouble finding sheets that fit my bed well and also feel good at the same time, I’m sure you’ve had the same problem before too! There is nothing worse than feeling sheets in the store to only put them on your bed and they’re less than satisfactory. You’re probably wondering what makes these sheets so special and different…well! They’re made of Supima cotton and Tencel fibers. We all know what cotton is but I’m sure you’re curious about Tencel fibers. Tencel fibers are a plant based fiber that can regulate temperature and resist bacteria and allergens. Tencel fibers are also good for regulating temperature and absorbing moisture. I would also like to point out that the Supima cotton is made of cotton that is grown in the U.S. and it’s more durable than other cottons.

I’m a huge fan of these sheets, and my boyfriend Tyler is too. They’re so soft and comfortable. I also really like that they have a GhostGrip so that they stay in place, most sheets always slip off of our mattress since we have a memory foam topper on it too. I was surprised that these sheets we’re deep enough to cover our mattress and topper without moving.

So some more awesome things about these awesome sheets is that they come with a 3-year limited warranty! I think items having a warranty on them is super important, especially if it’s something you invest your money into. GhostBed will also ship your purchase to you for free (which is always a win in my book!) I would also like to point out that GhostBed has a mattress that is great for side-sleepers which I’m definitely interested in investing into, since my boyfriend and I are both side-sleepers.

I am so stoked about these sheets and that I actually have a set that’s super soft and comfortable. These sheets come in two colors, white and grey. We got the grey color since it matched our decor better (I hope that maybe they’ll come out with more colors soon!) I’ve struggled with finding sheets that are comfy but also keep me cool at night. I think that these sheets are amazing and I’ll never go back to anything else.

If you’re in the market for a new set of sheets, I definitely recommend these. They are SO worth it.

I hope you enjoyed the post and that you’ll check out GhostBed!

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

advice, college A Guide To Studying More Effectively December 19, 2018

Download As Many Books As You Can

We’re in a very privileged position living in the era that we’re in. There’s so much technology around to help us, and we can use it when studying. I often find that going to the library and looking for books is so tiresome. They’re almost always taken, and then you feel pressure to rush through them quickly when you do manage to rent them. Instead, I prefer downloading books on a mobile device or computer. Here, you can use things like MarginNote to write notes and annotations on the pages without worrying about getting kicked out of college for defacing a book! Even if you get a book and take pictures of it, you can often convert the photo to a pdf and then access the file like that.

Or, if you really want to be cheeky, you can sometimes buy eBooks on Amazon, screenshot the pages you need, then ask for a refund within a week. The whole point of this is that you now have study materials that you can doodle on and write notes or underline things without ruining a library book. This helps so much as it keeps your notes all in one place.

Do What Works For You

This sounds like pointless advice, but what I mean is that everyone studies best in different ways. Your friends may want to study in a group as it helps them get out of their dorm and actually do some work. But, if this doesn’t work for you, then you have to say no and do your own thing.

If you work best on your own in absolute silence, then go ahead and do that. If you like listening to music as you work, then crack on with that as well. Don’t copy what other people do because it might not work for you even if it works for them!

Create A Timetable

Personally, my biggest weakness is not knowing where to start. So, to counter this, I made timetables to help me study. Every day, you should split your routine up so you’re studying something for a few hours, then you rest, then you move onto another topic, and so on.

Instantly, there’s more structure to everything, and you feel like you actually have things to do. It makes you feel bad if you don’t stick to the schedule as well, which is an added bonus.

This advice should help you study more effectively, and ensure that you graduate with your college degree! Don’t overdo it with 18-hour long study sessions as this ends up frying your brain. Take regular breaks where you can relax and clear your mind, and you’ll be mentally charged for the next study session.

I hope you enjoyed the post! Thanks so much for reading and good luck on your finals!
