A Stormy Scene

This is not a beauty/fashion post, but I guess we could put this under a lifestyle category. So, here we go. 

For my birthday, I purchased an incredible DSLR with the help of a generous donation from my family. 
I am so excited to take pictures of all of the places I go and the people I see. 

The other day my sister and I were testing out some different modes and we went to the bay. It was getting a little stormy so the waves were rough, which made for some beautiful pictures mixed with the cloudy, gray sky. 

Here are a few of the shots I got. 

I also took some pictures of my sister for her blog, which you can go check out here!

I am so excited to start posting more with some gorgeous pics off of my new camera. 
If you guys have any tips or tricks related to DSLRs please let me know. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. 

xoxo, Lily :)

Prepping For Exams

Since exams are slowly approaching, I wanted to share some of my favorite study tips. 

For my AP US History class I have really gotten into John Green's Crash Course US History videos on YouTube. In each video he breaks up all the critical points in history and makes it extremely easy to understand. John is also super hilarious, so it makes studying so much fun! 

I really love taking notes in any class. But, sometimes my teachers go through slideshows so quickly that my notes end up becoming a big mess. So, I really enjoy finding some pretty pens and rewriting some of my notes. This is extremely effective for going over old information. 

Listening to music is perfect for some study motivation. Whether it is calming, slow music or some exciting, upbeat tones. For some inspiration, check out my playlist here

A Break:
Take a break! Exams are stressful and so is studying. So, breaks are beyond necessary. Just go up to Starbucks or go on a short car ride! Do something calming and destress for a little while before the big test. 

I hope these few little tips helped you in your preparation for all of your exams. 
Good Luck to you all! 

Thank you so much!

xoxo, Lily :)

Current Playlist

I am so excited to share another playlist with you all! Music is one of my favorite things and I love finding new music. But, what I enjoy even more is old music! Any music that is from over a year ago is so much fun to hear. So, sometimes I like to add older music to the playlist.
