Hello everyone!

I’m back with the fourth edition of this bi-monthly (or is it every-other-month…ly?) series! This is where I share all of the inspirational, motivational, and helpful links I’ve been loving lately - videos, articles, TEDTalks, podcasts, websites, you name it.

I hope you find a helpful tidbit or something that makes you smile!

Have an amazing rest of your week,

P.S. I am currently in the middle of the ocean! I’m on a cruise and it’s a sea day, which means I’m totally disconnected from the Internet (this post is brought you by the magic of scheduling. I’ll be posting and sharing lots from this trip, so be sure to follow along on Instagram!


Love to read self-improvement books but not sure how to go about applying all of that knowledge to your life? This article from WikiHow does a great job of explaining step-by-step how you can use self-improvement books to actually, well… improve yourself!

Rowena puts SO much effort and thought into her content it’s actually insane. Whenever she uploads a long video, I just know it’s time to learn a ton: How To Make & Save More Money: Mindsets and Side Hustles.

One of my favorite YouTubers (Krist Yu) has a new video about one of my current favorite trends (the KonMari cleaning method?). Yes, please.

Speaking of the KonMari method, I’m living for the Marie Kondo memes lately (especially this tweet).

@drawingolive is my new favorite Instagram account, and this post about upstairs neighbors is what got me to press “follow”

Words and Latte is one of those blogs that just brings me pure joy when I read it. Hannah’s photography and writing are so beautiful, and I loved her post “Small Things You Can Do To Improve Yourself”.

Every single @holyhealth recipe has me DROOLING. Brb while I go make these vegan twix bars.

Brief shameless self-promotion while we’re on the topic of sweet recipes - I made this coconut chip chocolate chunk trail mix and was actually so sad when I finished the jar.

I’ve probably mentioned it in one of these posts before, but I absolutely love the Duolingo Spanish podcast for helping me practice Spanish. You get to hear actual Spanish speakers telling fascinating, real-life stories.

I really loved this article from Huffington Post on how to maximize small pockets of time. I’ll be sharing my own ideas and tips on the topic very soon!

The caption of this Instagram post about the term “PMS” was just SO spot-on. While you’re at it, follow @ericachidicohen, she’s amazing.


That’s all for this edition! Let me know which one was your favorite, and I’ll see you over on Instagram.

[VIDEO] Ask Me Anything! Q+A Video

Today’s video is a little more personal! Get to know me as I answer some really deep and personal questions like "What's your favorite bubble tea flavor?" and "What's your favorite card game?".

I also talked about my current plans for my post-high school gap year, how I balance social media with my real life, how I plan my days to make time for everything, etc. etc.
