Quick Update

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd pop on since I feel like I haven't been here in a while, and so much has happened! First off, this is my first reading week in Chicago. Boo! I usually go home, or go on vacation (remember my Florida trip last year?), but I've been hunkering down to study for this board exam. So far the weather has been poop, but it's nice and cozy inside. Second of all, my parents came down for a visit! Yayayyaaaaa! We had a ton of fun together, and I picked up a few more things for the apartment and my wardrobe. I will share them with you in an upcoming post. And lastly, I'm in an exercise rut. Nothing has held my interest like dancing and competing did. If you have any suggestions, please shoot them my way. :D

Here are a few cute outfits I saw on tumblr. They're fashionably perfect for clinic. 
Here's a full week of food prep for exam periods. Doing this saves so much time when you're cramming information in the noggin', and eating crappy foods is too tempting. I also make sure it's loaded with veggies and some fish to help my brain work better.
This is pretty much what I see 8-16 hours a day. Double-fisting First Aid for Step 1! My laptop can't even fit on the table with all these books, and I'm still missing quite a few. I need a desk the size of a living room! (This is another reason why I study on the floor a lot, that and I get to lay down and avoid neck strain).

That's all that's happening on my end! 
What are you up to this weekend? 

Cheers,

Hi my lovelies,

Today is the perfect day to celebrate your relationships, with both others & also yourself. You know my little slice of the internet alway promotes positivity, happiness & self-love. Today, take the time to appreciate all the great people in your life, and all your accomplishments (even if it's just making the bed before leaving the house this morning)! 
Happy Valentine's Day!

Friday I'm In Love by The Cure

I want to thank all of you for sticking around with me this long. I love getting your comments, tweets & e-mails! It makes me feel so happy; especially the lovely ladies who tell me about their dreams of studying medicine. Thank you for updating me on your life as you travel towards your goals.
Have a wonderful weekend, whatever you decide to do.

Cheers,
Chantelle 

Under 30 Pick-Me Ups

Since it has been a gloomy start to the year, I thought I'd put a little self-love gift guide together! It won't break the bank (aka guilt-free), and might pop a little funk in your step til the sun & warmth return. Consider it a personal Valentine's gift. ^-^


ENJOY!

P.S. Reading week is coming up, and I'm so excited. Only one more test to go!! 
P.P.S. I had only a short of amount of time to put this together, and I seem to have lost the vibrancy of the original colors and murked the background. Any help as to why is appreciated!
