Some Not so Workout, Workouts! (School Edition...)

Easy ways to workout at school, and no one will ever be the wiser!

Cram and Jam
Get fit while you’re stuck in class! You can pull of these calf-tightening moves while sitting in your chair – and nobody will ever notice. Cross your legs and point the toe of the leg that’s dangling, then trace the alphabet with your foot. When you’re done, point your heel at the floor and stretch toes back for 10 seconds or so. Switch legs, and repeat on the other side. Just don’t space out – the teacher might call on you!

Leg extensions in Latin
While sitting at your desk, extend your legs, one at a time, until they are completely straight. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds at a time, then slowly release back to the floor. If ya need to, keep your legs at an angle so they slide under the chair in front of you. For a serious burn, try 10 to 15 reps at a snail’s pace, using your abs to pull your legs up and lower them down.

Hip flexors in history
While sitting in your chair, lift your right foot a few inches off the ground. Keep your knee bent at a 90-degree angle and hold the position for a full minute. Lower, then do the same with your left foot. Repeat.

Toe raises in trig
You can do this while sitting or standing for a great calf stretch. With your heels on the ground, flex your toes up toward the ceiling. Hold for ten seconds, then release.

Late to class?
Get your cardio in and book it, babe! Jog up the stairs, pulling your knees up as high as you can. Or, speed walk down the halls. Consider the different muscle groups in your body and try to target them. For you calves, spring forward energetically off your heels when you take a step. For your bum, squeeze your glutes as you walk. For your abs, suck your belly in and stand tall as you weave through traffic.

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on mypetalclub.com, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

SprezzaBox: September + Bonus Box!

You all may remember that I ordered a Sprezza box last year around this time of the year as a present for my boy.  If you want to see that box you can find it here!  I was amazed then, and then I ordered these and have been even more impressed!  These boxes are full of really nice quality products for men, and I love that there is a subscription company catering to the men in our lives and trying to make them dress better. When I ordered they were doing a promotion, which was the current box and a past box for $20.  I'm not sure if it is still active, but I used the code "BONUSBOX20" so you all can give it a shot!

The September box theme was "The Perry" with classic patterns, but heavier fabrics and darker colors for fall.

This box included: Bryt Dress Socks - $11.66FRESHeTech Earbuds - $29.95Peter Daniel Leather Bracelet - $10Sprezza Pocket Square - $18English Laundry Oxford Bleu Cologne - They said this small bottle was worth $20, but the full size 1.7 oz is …
