valentine’s day gift guide. 2017.

Here’s a list of my last minute valentine’s day gift guide!!

I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s day, but if I did… I wouldn’t mind receiving the following (wink wink):



You can never go wrong with Chanel! I love all the perfume from the Chanel Chance line. I have, tried and LOVE the EAU TENDRE, EAU FRAICHE and the original CHANCE. I have yet tried the new one in the line, EAU VIVE. Which I will probably be getting sometime in the near future…  (Here’s a tip: Wait for Sephora’s VIB sale to pick some Chanel perfume! Best. Deal. Ever.)



I love a pretty lip color! Who doesn’t?! Especially a red lip! I tend to keep my lipsticks in my Reiko Kaneko Lip Tease Mug and it sits pretty along with my makeup. You can find any cute mug (or a mason jar!) from Target and put some lipsticks in there! (i.e lipstick in a mug)



I’ve been eyeing those champagne gummy bears from sugarfina! They look so adorable and my question is, ‘will I even eat them?!’


lush bath bombs.

I tried a bath bomb from lush for the first time and instantly became obsessed! Inexpensive at home spa. and I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend this! it’s a way to distress at the end of the day! (or after the MCAT!!)



or skip valentine’s day! & save some money for travelling.

The boy and I tend to skip this Hallmark holiday since we don’t need a day devoted to showing each other how we ‘feel’ about one another. We have all 365 days to! 🙂 Instead, we’ve been saving money for our next destination. (We’re thinking Iceland!! Have you been?)

hope your valentine’s day (and every day) is filled with love 🙂

Dear me…



Over the weekend, I had an urge to write a letter. A letter to my future self. I wanted to remind myself of what my goals were at this moment in time and the type of person I am trying to become. It is still in the works and taking some time (like all good things should). I hope to have it done and read it in about 10 years. Maybe pass it on to my kids one day if I choose to have any.

Have you written yourself a letter?





#MotivationMcatMonday 2

Happy Tuesday!!

I have been swamped with work and studying that I have not been posting regularly. Trying to get into the swing of blogging! Forgive me, for I am new. 🙂

For this week’s motivation, I’m going to dedicate it to myself. Selfish, I know. But you know what, it’s okay to be selfish sometimes. Put yourself first, once in awhile. (Buy the shoes! Get that mani! Eat that candy bar! Treat yourself! etc etc)

I am studying the MCAT for myself (even though MCAT studying isn’t always fun! Who’s with me?!). For my path and for my future. I am doing this for me. Short and simple. #me
