San Francisco Adventures

During the last month of 2018, I was lucky enough to visit SF with my brother and my boyfriend. I had been just once before, but this trip was easily my favorite. We visited Chinatown, the Painted Ladies, Pier 39, the famous Golden Gate Bridge, Mr. Holmes Bakery, and even the Mrs. Doubtfire house! Needless to say, there were plenty of photo opportunities, and I even got to see an old friend , Yonni, while we were there!

My Favorite Hikes in AZ

At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a lover of nature. I think this has always been an evident quality of mine, but I actually have to thank my good friend Mia Pique for really bringing out this part of me back in 2015. She forced me to join hiking club my freshman year of college, and after my first adventure with that club, I can truly say my love for hiking was born. Thus, I have decided to make this blog post with my absolute favorite hikes in Arizona. Feel free to leave comments of your favorite as well!

Teaspressa.

If you’ve read my blog before, or follow me on Instagram, you know that I love to spend any of my remaining dollars on aesthetically-pleasing food or coffee places. Why do I do this? As a business major, the one thing I truly learned in college is how much passion, hard-work, and creativity goes into opening your own business. Thus, if I’m going to spend any money and add to the consumerism mania happening in America, I’m going to drop my money on a small business or one that tries to differentiate themselves in all the best, possible ways. Teaspressa definitely qualifies as one such business.

Winter Wonderland at NAU

It’s finally winter ! My university’s campus looks incredible covered in white, and I genuinely feel like I live in a snow globe every time there’s a new snowfall. I couldn’t be more excited to see the massive amounts of beautiful snow and get to enjoy my favorite season once again. Also, my favorite clothes reside in my winter wardrobe, so I’m pretty excited to wear those again! Scroll below to see some gorgeous shots of NAU from this past week.

New York State of Mind

nyc 64

A little over a month ago I visited NYC for the first time. I cannot explain to you all what a dream come true the whole experience was for me. Not only did NYC match everything I ever saw in some of my favorite movies, but the people and architecture were ten times better in person. For as long as I can remember I dreamed of walking around in Brooklyn, visiting the places where those iconic Gossip Girl scenes were filmed, and pretending like I owned an apartment in the heart of Manhattan. Overall, after just this one time visiting, it’s pretty much a given that I will live there one day.

This past weekend I took a much needed trip away from Flagstaff. The destination? Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Okay, so maybe not the real Hogwarts, but a girl can pretend, right?

Pumpkin Spice, Pumpkin Patches, and Everything In-Between.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

If you know me, then you should already know that I am a complete sucker for anything aesthetically pleasing, especially if it has to do with Fall. For as long as I can remember, Fall has been my favorite season. Everything old is essentially dying and starting to fall off of trees (and my worrisome mind) , and the leaves changing really signify new beginnings for me each year. Thus, to celebrate this new season in my life, I went to the prettiest pumpkin patch in Flagstaff, Viola’s, with some great company.

CAITLINBLAKE

I think there’s a general consensus with college students that 8am’s, pop quizzes, and boring lecturers are the worst things that can happen to us besides our massive debt amounts.

Skincare Products I’m Currently Loving| Acne-Prone Edition

Tasteful inspiration Blog- Acne Skincare

I have struggled with cystic acne from about the age of 11, which many people still can’t believe, and I’ve tried hundreds of dollars worth of products since that terrible stage of life hit me. You name it, I’ve tried it. I have been struggling less and less with acne as the years went on, so I thought it would be a good idea to show you all what I’ve been using  since I got some questions from friends (who have seen me at my worst stages) on how I got everything cleared up.
