Hi guys and happy Friday! Hope you all had a good week-the weekend is finally here!

Linking up with Heather this week to share some of my favorite things lately!



Me Myself and I by G Eazy

Lady Killers by G Eazy

I feel It All by Feist-The Reminder



Dunkin Donuts snickerdoodle iced coffee with almond milk. My favorite iced coffee EVER!

Tried this combat crunch bar and it was super good!! Birthday cake flavor… Nuff said <3

The fact that my dining hall in my dorm got the fresh fruit salad cups back. MADE MY DAY <3

Already talked about coffee… But also been loving Americano’s from Starbucks and Chai tea lattes 🙂

Also ripe bananas. Those have been savin my life on the daily. Whether I throw them on toast, oatmeal, or just have them on the go as a snack, bananas will always be there for me and have my back.

Been loving spinning lately, yoga (dorm room yoga will have to do for now but either way I love it!), and arm weight circuits (been stealing ideas from the Nike training app!)


“Feelings are scary, and sometimes they’re painful. But if you can’t feel pain then there’s no way you’ll feel anything else either. You’re here and you’re alive, and don’t tell me you don’t feel that. It is good, believe me.”

“Get out of your head and get into your heart. Think less, feel more.”

“But at some point you have to stop being so angry, you have to stop being so sad, you have to stop killing yourself and start being gentle with yourself. At some point you have to just let it all go and be happy, you have to spread love instead of being afraid of it. You have to love yourself and everyone around you before its too late. Dont waste away being unhappy over trivial things dear. Dont do it. Dont do it to yourself and dont let other people do it to you.”

“Note to Self: You gotta do this for you. This is for you. This isn’t about anybody. Live for you. Honor you. Never lose sight of that.”


I started a new babysitting job every Friday’s which I’m exicted about. Love the little girl I sit for and the family is so sweet. 🙂

Lunch dates with my friend Sydney 


Love our Tuesday and Thursday dates <3

Quiet mornings (on days where I have class at 11:30) that I can relax with breakfast, a cup of coffee, and read blogs. 

Love mornings like those: anyone else too?!

FaceTime sessions with my mom/ phone calls with my dad

I am so thankful for the technology we have and that I have such amazing, supportive parents. I love being able to stay in touch with them and talk to them/text them/ FaceTime them whenever. They are seriously the best and I don’t know what I would do without them. <3

That’s it for this weeks favorites, but I would love to hear yours!

Now tell me: 

Are you a fan of Dunkin Donut’s coffee? 

What is your favorite way to start your morning?

Favorite song recently?

Have a great weekend guys!


Lyss <3

    I love mornings! After an early workout class, I love to sit with a cup of coffee and breakfast and do some blogging, reading and just relaxing thinking about my day ahead. I was a nanny all throughout college and for 2 years after. I still stay in touch with most of the families… I miss those kiddos!

      Love blogging and drinking coffee in the mornings, so relaxing! I love nannying. It’s only been three weeks and I feel like I’m already super close with the kiddo 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend Taylor! Thanks for reading 🙂

    I love peaceful mornings with a cup of coffee after an early morning workout class. I was a nanny all throughout college and for 2 years after. I still stay in touch with most of the families… I miss those kiddos!

    I love Dunkin’ coffee!! I rarely go there because I am so loyal to Starbucks hehe, but I love all the iced coffee flavors at Dunkin’. I do the same things on my mornings off- relax in my bed with breakfast & coffee while reading blogs or watching Netflix. Such a nice way to start the day! Also I really need to try a Combat Crunch bar, they look soo good. Have a great weekend!

      Dunkin iced coffee is so good, also love Starbucks too! That is the best way to do a morning: coffee, breakfast, bed, and blog reading! Have a great weekend Melanie 🙂

    Dunkin Donuts coffee is great but unfortunately we don’t have any near me so I have to buy the beans from the store. Still good though! Favorite way to start my morning is with a run, followed by a shower and breakfast with a big cup of coffee! Quiet mornings are the best. I have been loving Reaper by Sia. Have a great weekend!

      Aw man that stinks! But I love how they have the beans at the store so you can buy it and make your own. I love starting my mornings with a workout sometimes too, especially yoga! I need to check that song out! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

    Ahh so much in common! Love “Me, Myself, and I” by G-Eazy haha. And Americanos are my favorite from Starbucks too! I’ve been listening to a lot of O.A.R. recently since I’m seeing them in a few days. I’ve never listened to them much before but they’re awesome! Have a good weekend Alyssa!

    • Reply Alyssa January 30, 2016 at 7:30 pm

      Americanos are the best! I love O.A.R., that should be such a good concert! Hope you have a great weekend as well Amanda 🙂

    My favorite way to start my morning is quietly browsing blogs while sipping on my coffee and eating breakfast. I didn’t know Dunkin Donuts made snickerdoodle flavoring! They get so creative with their flavors, would love to have that job!

      That is how I love to start my mornings too! The snickerdoodle coffee is so good. Dunkin Donuts has the best flavors!
