the life of a teenage fashionista

 On that Sunday when you have had the longest weekend and lack energy to put together a look, the only option left is to throw on a hoodie, leggings, and baseball cap, and call it a day. 

Yesterday was one of those out alllll day days where I was up at 6am to go to the city and managed to hit an Earth Day street fair, attend a grand opening, stop for ice cream like a three year old, head to a party, and then go to another party outside of the city. Everything went well, but guys my highlight is that I finally got to eat a poke bowl which is sorta like a sushi bowl if you didn't know. BEST THING EVER. Not sure why it took this long for the poke trend to get going, but it is so delicious. You must try y'all.

So, today is my last day of spring break and I'm gonna pretend that I am still  on the beach in the Hamptons by wearing this nautical halter top and corduroy skirt from Zaful. During the break I practically did something different every day, but what else is new. I've always got that wanderlust feeling running through me. I attended afternoon tea, museum trips, parties, and even binged the entire season of that new show Famous in Love in a solid 12 hours to name a few things.

I am heading out to spend the last afternoon at a restaurant with some friends before I prepare myself for the last month of school and all of the assignments to go along with it, but it's literally crunch time. In the midst of this, I've been inspired to rebrand and try to figure out which direction I really want to go in. I've always wanted to truly get into YouTube, but I miss modeling as frequently as I used to, and I used to love acting as well. Should I do it all? We'll see.

Now, if this pineapple cup doesn't match my current mood more accurately. It screams ready for the Hamptons and adventures while on break. In honor all of this, I collabed with Copper Mug Co. to share a very delish (and easy to make-no fussy ingredients!) spring smoothie. This company is USA based and their products are actually 100% handcrafted from pure copper. They have everything from cute little basic mugs, to The Pineapple. Oh, and of course the smoothie we're about to make is pineapple flavored to go with the cup. How cuuuuute!

Posh Pineapple Smoothie Recipe
(makes one serving)
-1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
-1 sliced, frozen banana
-3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-pinch of vanilla extract
-handful of ice cubes

1. place all ingredients into a blender (side note: I highly recommend a Nutri Ninja blender, if you're looking to purchase a good one) 
2. blend until smooth - it should have a thick consistency
3. pour the deliciousness into your Copper Mug Co. and enjoy every sip

Wait. Did you say that you don't have a Copper Mug Co. cup to enjoy your tropical goodness in? Head over to their website to check out the amazing product line and use promo code "COPPERSHOPPER10" for 10% off.

GUYS! It feels like spring today and I'm in love. In honor, I had to step out in my pink duster and diamond choker from Sammydress. Spring break has arrived and I am so relieved- like I woke up at 9am today instead of 6am, that's a gift from the heavens. 

In the past few days I have really seemed to notice more and more how much I like change. It is so hard for me to pick favorite things because I always know there is something I haven't done, seen, or tried yet (and it's most likely on my bucketlist to do so). That's why it is my long term goal to just do everything I wish no matter what it is.

I wish I could stay and chat, but I am taking that advice above and heading out of the house to get things done. Let's make things happen people.

I made it to spring break y'all. It has been a month of school without a single break and I seriously mean that. I have written many blog posts over the past few weeks during the wee hours of the night, as my eyes burned. I just wanna be happy and write...and that's what spring break is for.

Today I'm running around in my usual athleisure because what else is new. Even though it's a break, that just means pause the student life and more focus on the fun stuff. In other words, things will be happening pretty much each day involving the blog, modeling, and I'll be making a pit stop in the Hamptons. Make sure you're following @raquelringgold on IG to come along for the ride! xxx
