19 THINGS I WISH I KNEW BEFORE I WAS 19!!

This weeks post is a little different! I've made a list for my younger viewers of things I wish I knew before I was nineteen that I was able to learn primarily this year!


1. If it won't matter in a month, do not spend more than five minutes thinking about it.
2. Reading before bed DOES help you sleep better. Turn off your phone.
3. If you are feeling consumed by social media TAKE A BREAK. You won't miss anything.
4. Eating healthy genuinely can affect your mental and physical health in a positive way
5. Cardio chemically produces and releases endorphins that make you happy. Use this to your advantage and do cardio.
6. NEVER choose your friends based on anything other than the fact that they make you happy or a better person.
7. You are who the closest ten people you surround yourself with are. Make that a positive group of ten people.
8. If you choose people that don't choose you, let them go.
9. Car rides with loud music can fix a lot of things.
10. Accept that a lot of people are temporary, but they get you one person closer to the people who aren't temporary.
11. Tell the people you love that you love them, as much as possible.
12. A clean room really can make you feel more organized.
13. Ice coffee in the morning is completely necessary for a productive day.
14. People are going to talk about you whether its good or bad, let them say what they want and don't give them the reaction they're looking for. Kindness will kill them.
15. University makes it so easy to skip class, not study, get distracted, etc. You're there to study! Do it!
16. Set goals and revisit them daily to make sure you're staying on track.
17. A lot of things change and become a lot less relevant after high school, wait it out, high school should not be your peak.
18. Try new things and expand your circle as much as possible.


19. My final piece of advice is by far the most important. Weirdly enough, I overheard someone saying this about a week ago and I really felt it. Only focus on the things YOU can control.


Xoxo,

Five Things I Wish I Knew Going Into First Year University!!

As summer comes to an end, it's time for all the students to prepare for the next year of studies! I'm going into my second year and really looking forward to it! I've created a list of five things I wish I knew before going into first year university. This list is purely created based on experience. Feel free to share with anyone you know heading off to post secondary education as it may not only apply to first years! I live in Vancouver and go to school in Ontario so this list may be a little biased for the people who are leaving home as that is my experience! Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy and I hope this helps you in some way!

1. FACETIME is a life changer and when you're away from your family and friends it can at times be the only thing that gets you through the inevitable home sick days so USE it.
2. Organize yourself BEFORE school starts. This could include an agenda, making sure your room is organized, creating a workout schedule, etc.
3. Even though university…

My Week Away In LA!!

Just got back from LA so I thought this week I would share some pictures, restaurants, a hotel recommendation, some night life recommendations, and how great my trip went! Two friends and I went to LA and stayed for a week! We met great people there and had a lot of fun!

Below is a picture from a place called Carrero Cafe! They're specialty is to print whatever you want on the top of your latte! It was really cute and the coffee was great.



We also went to an awesome cupcake place that has a cupcake ATM outside! It is called Sprinkles Cupcakes and it is a must go if you are ever in LA! Sprinkles Cupcakes is located in the middle of Beverly Hills! My personal favourite cupcake is the red velvet!
On our second last day we went to the Beverly Hills Hotel! The food was great and there are a lot of good picture opportunities there too! I got the Strawberry Waffles and they were so tasty!
I don't have too many pictures from going out as far as night life in LA but we went to Nighting…
