As much as I love going to school and learning; I tend to forget to eat sometimes--which is probably bad. You get so much homework and you forget where the time went and then it's like oh man, totally forgot to eat. Between being a college student, physical therapy assistant and being a blogger, I usually end up making lots of food for my family instead of myself and usually end up falling asleep when I'm not eating. I love making food by hand, because I know where my foods from and how it's made--So I'm really glad I found an awesome pre-made food for being a college student from LEAN CUISINE® 

I found out that Lean Cuisine is making HUGE changes in their new varieties of LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE meals which includes excellent new flavors with organic ingredient options, gluten-free options, protein-packed options and no-GMOs. They are also offering four limited time varieties to fix your menu fatigue. When I was at Walmart, I got four of the flavors which are:  LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Cheese & Fire-Roasted Chile Tamale, LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Thai-Style Ginger Beef, LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Chicken Tikka Masala, and LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Southwest-Style Potato Bake. I'm totally excited about this for being a college student, because they have created more varieties with organic ingredient options. Also, they are really convenient for your lunches for class during lunch or dinner. Just heat them up and you're good to go eat before class.



Today I was thrilled to try the Chick Tikka Masala entrees and I fell in love with the flavorful meal and I chowed it down. I was doing homework and thought, "Why not eat some LEAN CUISINE® with studying.". I'm actually really glad I got a couple of LEAN CUISINE® in my freezer and to help me with my studying needs.

Don't forget to check out Lean Cuisine Facebook page and their Pinterest Page to check out their new limited varieties. Also, you can get them at a Walmart near you to try them!




Have you tried the new LEAN CUISINE®? If so, I'd love to hear what you love about it them!

Argan Oil Review

Argan oil is a great oil that will always make you look pretty.  This is pure Argan oil and it’s perfect. I love how it’s just a soft oil that makes you skin just incredible and to prevent wrinkles is always a plus. You do not want to get a Argan oil that comes with harsh chemicals and for a great price you can have this one! It’s great and it smells great too, doesn’t really have a smell but you can kind of smell the Argan which is good! I think it kind of smells like coffee, but it’s not. Moroccan oil is extra virgin grade, certified organic, cold pressed and fragrance paragon. The low cost is pretty awesome for 12 bucks right?! Most people think if it’s on sale it’s not worth it, but this one is worth it. I put this on my hair before I style it and every morning and night on my face to prevent wrinkles. For your hair it will leave you hair frizzy free and you hair will get stronger at the ends. If you curl your hair like me, you will know that your ends are bad, but if you apply this after the shower, before you do curling or anything with heat—you will have amazingly soft hair at the end. I just put it on the ends not all over—I get a oily scalp if i do so, but the ends are great! This product is AMAZING, not sure what else I can say without just saying its great or amazing. Totally buy it if your looking for amazing Argan oil!

I received this product for free!

My 4 Tips for Ankle Joint Pain

Have you been dealing with ankle joint pain? I've broken my ankles so many times from ice skating, so I suffer from ankle pain and sometimes my ankle pops out of place sometimes. I found some useful tips on how I relieve this pain.
advil Arthritis, advil EZ caps, ankle joint pain, pain reliever, Advil,

Did you know that 53 million American's suffer from arthritis? Which means, May is National Arthritis Month. I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I know that my ankles have it. When I did ice skating for 13 years, I ended up breaking both my ankles 5 or more times. So, now a result is my ankle pops out of place when I walk and it hurts sometimes. 



4 TIPS FOR HOW TO DEAL WITH Ankle Joint PAIN


1. Supported shoes – If you're pain is in your ankle and your ankle pops out sometimes when walking (like me), wear sandals, boots or shoes that have ankle support. Such as, sandals that have a ankle strap/straps to keep your ankle in place. I can't wear shoes that have no ankle support or else I'll probably end up breaking my ankle again. So sneakers that hold your ankle are perfect as well.


2. Pain Reliever – When I'm in a little bit of pain, I look for a relief with anti-inflammatory in it, just like Advil has it. Among the OTC pain relievers like Advil, nothing is proven stronger on Arthritis and other joint pain*. *For minor arthritis pain.

3. Walking – Walking is the best way to get your ankle strong. Instead of driving maybe try walking about 5,000-10,000 steps a day to your job or anywhere you are going. Just being on your feet and walking around will keep the ankle from getting injured.
4. Squats – Doing squats will make your muscles hold you up. This will help your ankle from popping out so much when walking, cramping or even pain. I suggest doing all the squats you can from: sumo squats, regular squats, pulse squats, pulse lunge squats, etc.

Did you know that Advil comes with EZ open caps, which are perfect for people struggling with Arthritis. Advil is doctor recommended for most joint pain. Be sure to check out Advil at Walmart in the Pain and Fever section. Please, be sure to ask your doctor before using.

5 steps to creating a Time Management Plan for College Students

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CentrumFunFlavors #CollectiveBias

My life is super busy. I do Physical Therapy, I'm a full time college (pre-med student), studying like crazy, blogging and going to have a social life--if I ever can. I never have that much time to do a lot, even see my friends it's hard. When you're a pre-med student it's a lot of work and study time takes most of your free time. I try to make my priorities like eating when I need to, taking my vitamins every morning right at 7:30 AM, working out etc. With a busy schedule like mine (you will see my two schools schedules I attend this summer) I sometimes forget to do many things I listed above. So, today I'm sharing my 5 secret tips of Time Management for a busy college student that is taking more than 17 credit hours a semester. I hope I can impact you on time management and help you organize your day better to do more things.

5 Steps to Creating a Time Management Plan for College Students 

1) Scheduling Your Calendar – Keep your calendar always next to you. When you have that, write when you need to study. I normally study 3 weeks in advanced for tests. So depending on if you can do that, this will make you have a free schedule. Also mark down when quizzes, tests and homework are due. Sometimes teachers put all of your homework on canvas--this is the best. You can start doing all your homework way ahead in time and just worry about testing. So, if you can try to do that, then this will free a lot more time as well. Just depends on how dedicated you are to get all your homework down at the beginning of the semester too. If your work a lot you will have to see when you work. During summer I get 3 month's off, so that is easier to work with. If you work 20 hours, see what days you work and if you work 3 hours in the morning then you can study right when you get off work then have the evening off.


2) Always prepare your breakfast, lunch or dinner the night before – If you have classes all on the same day, you need to have your breakfast, lunch and dinner all ready for you to keep in your backpack. If you have yoru breakfast already made just wake up and eat it, then put the rest in your backpack for later. I break snacks for my 10am snack and 2 pm snack. This will be much easier and you wont be stressing too much and of course you wont be eating out as much too.


3) Books are a pain sometimes – If you can get ebooks, I would highly recommend this, but if you need actual textbooks always have them already prepared in your backpack or purse. When I'm done studying, I go put my books back in my backpack that I need, so I have that all ready to get going in the morning.
4) Homework – If you can do all your homework the week of the semester starting this will keep you ahead of the classes. I've noticed that sometime's teachers just give you homework and just check it off without really grading it. If your teacher does that –this will give you an advantage to getting it all done and turn it in for credit way early and you can basically be done with the class. I love when you can do that. Relaxed teachers on grading are the best!

5) Get multivitamins  –  When I'm in a rush every morning to get to class, I forget to take my vitamins, so a multivitamins are a great alternative to keep your overall health great. I keep it in my backpack, so when I do forget to take them, I already have them in my backpack. I love that Centrum has a bunch of new flavors that just came out. The Centrum Raspberry Vitamints and the Centrum Gummies are a great go to item for your backpack.



If you cannot do all these steps, I would say just try doing one at a time. I would highly recommend doing all your homework--the ones that you can do on canvas and know you'll get a A in. This will take some of the stress away and you will have much more free time in your schedule. You just got to be very dedicated--even during summer semester which is much more shorter than a regular semester.

I have a crazy schedule and I know all you college students do too--just remember to breath, not stress too much, be happy and your semester will be fine and soon it will be over. 
Always try to enjoy your time at school and try some multivitamin solutions from Centrum Gummies and Vitamints!  

If you enjoyed my steps and are going to try to incorporate them into your schedule. Come back and tell me how you are taking your steps to freeing up your college schedules. I would love to hear about it!
