10 Back To School Outfit Ideas


I think I'm pretty late to the game right? I've noticed a lot of people have gone back to school already. Here in Portugal though, school only starts mid-September so that's why I've decided to post-pone this post a little (but also because I don't really want to acknowledge I have to go back to school in less than a month). Anyways, here are a few back to school outfit ideas.

The Beginners Guide To Creating New Habits

The Beginners Guide To Creating New Habits


Creating new habits is something we all find difficult. Although our brains are quite good at creating new habits, they are even better at letting go of old ones. It takes an average of twenty-one days for a person to build a habit but that period is not very easy. Here are my top  four tips on how to create new habits.


Adopt one new habit at a time

The first step to building new habits is to start small. Making small changes and building them up over time. If you have a bunch of habits you want to implement in your life, don't go and try to stick to them all at the same time. Start with one and once that first habit is successfully built, move on to the next one.

Associate a habit you want to start doing with one you really enjoy

Let's say you want to get into the habit of writing 10 pages a day for your dissertation but you just can't seem to do it. My best advice is to associate that habit with one you already have and really enjoy. For example, write those ten pages while listening to a podcast.

If you want to exercise, for example, do it while watching Netflix or, better yet, reward yourself with that Netflix binge after you exercise so you'll have something to look forward to.


The Beginners Guide To Creating New Habits


Have strong why behind your habit

It's more than proven that if you want to get into a certain habit just because you are much more likely to fail than if you were to have a strong reason why you want to build that habit.

Having a strong why behind your habit will motivate you and it's much more likely for you to stick to it.

Adjust your environment to help you stick to better habits

Want to do yoga every morning? Have your yoga mat somewhere visible and easy to reach. Wanna write more? Have a pen and a notebook on your bedside table. These are just small changes you can implement that will keep you accountable and remind you to do that certain thing.

The saying ''out of sight, out of mind'' works perfectly in this situation. If you're not seeing that thing that will help you stick to that certain habit, I can guarantee you you'll forget about it eventually. Whereas if you see that thing every day, you'll be reminded to do that thing.

Sheer tops are a huge trend for this Autumn/ Winter season. Adding sheerness to an everyday item such as a blouse is the perfect way to make your outfits a lot more trendy and stylish.

If you're bold enough, there are completely sheer tops that are absolutely beautiful, but if you just want something more subtle, there are also a lot of tops with only sheer sleeves or a sheer panel on the shoulder area. Basically, there's a sheer top for everyone.

How to Organize Your Workspace To Be More Productive

How to Organize Your Workspace To Be More Productive


Having a tidy workspace can change the way you work drastically. Having a mess around you will not only distract you from your work but it will also make working a much time-consuming task then it needs to be. As they usually say, a tidy space equals a tidy mind. Here are three tips on how to organize your workspace.


Tidy up your desk after you finish your work

This is a habit you should develop as soon as possible if you want your workspace to be organized all the time. After you finish doing your work, don't just leave everything as it is. Store those papers away, put that pen back in the jar.

How to Organize Your Workspace To Be More Productive


If the surface of your desk looks kinda gross, give it a good old clean. Once you build the habit of cleaning up after yourself, being organized will become much easier.



Have what you need on top of your desk

A desk should be functional, not necessarily pretty. I mean what's the point of having a ton of decorative pieces on top of your desk, those pretty notebooks on display if what you actually use is all stored away in a drawer?

Don't get me wrong, I love decorating my desk: as I'm writing this, my desk has a jar of flowers, 2 BTS albums and a BTS standee on top of it, but those things aren't taking the place of things I use on a regular basis. My point is, don't let decor occupy the place of that planner or those markers you use constantly. Functionality comes first, decor comes second.

Have a home for everything

Having a set place where you store every single thing you own is crucial to have an organized space. That way you'll know exactly where things are when you need them, so you won't need to rummage through all the drawers and cabinets to find them.

Also, I would suggest you keep similar things in the same place. Having a bunch of pens scattered in fifteen different places will pretty much cancel the effect of having a home for everything. Keep those pens all in the same place.

3 Simple Ways To Save More Money

3-simple-ways-to-save-more-money


Saving money. Something all of us want to do but only a few actually can. I get it, it's not easy to just grab half of your paycheck and just chuck it into a savings account. I don't think that is the right way to approach saving money either.  Starting is the hardest part, but with these three tips saving money will - hopefully- become easier. 

Keep Track Of Expenses

You can do this either manually or digitally. If you prefer to write things down, I suggest you get yourself a notebook and just jot down every expense you have throughout each month so you can get a better feel on how you are spending your money. You can also get free printable expense trackers on Pinterest.

If you prefer to do things digitally, you can either create a word document and just type down your expenses or create a spreadsheet and organize everything in there. Again, if you're not up to making your own spreadsheet, there are tons available for free, just search on Pinterest.

Save little at a time

Get yourself one of those piggy banks that can only be opened if you break them and every time you get some money, throw a coin or two in there. When starting out, you shouldn't just throw 100 bucks in there and hope for the best. I can guarantee you that you'll break the piggy bank way faster than if you just throw a few bucks at a time.

You can also get yourself a savings account if you're not someone who carries money most of the time. The principle still applies to virtual money.

When in doubt, don't buy it

If you're at some store and you see something you like but you're a bit unsure if you actually want it or you just find it cute, don't buy it. Nine times out of ten you'll end up regretting it. If after a week you're still thinking about that product then I guess you should buy it.

Summer means hot weather, which in turn means looser, shorter and -in general- fewer clothes. While it's very true that summer is the time to show off your legs, some of us just aren't comfortable enough to do so, whether it's because we haven't shaved, we think we're too pale or just because don't like showing our legs and just prefer to wear pieces of clothing that cover up our legs. Well, today I thought I'd show you 8 outfits you can rock when it's hot outside and you're not feeling like showing off your legs.
