12 Ways To Boost Your Mood & Rid Yourself Of Stress

June 26, 2017

  1. Blast upbeat music, and sing along!
  2. Watch a "feel good" movie, whether it be a movie you loved watching when you were younger or a movie that never fails to make you laugh (most likely Harry Potter for me).
  3. Take a bubble bath, and leave all distractions, aka your phone and/or computer, in another room (I still need to work on that).
  4. "Rant" to someone you are close with. If you are stressed, anxious, or just have a lot of things bubbling inside of your head, spilling it all out to someone to whom you are very close with (for me this is my mom) clears your mind immensely.

5 Must-Reads For Young Adults

June 25, 2017

To me, reading is not only one of the greatest ways to learn in an academic sense, but it is also a way to become more open-minded, creative, considerate, and aware of the world that is constantly changing around us. It is a way to escape and become immersed in a story unfamiliar to our own, no matter if it is fiction or non-fiction. Today I am sharing with you a few of my recent favorite books that I would recommend to high school students such as myself as well as adults. Instead of writing a summary of each book, I chose to include quotes from other readers. I hope you give at least one of these books a read and share your thoughts and favorite books with me, as I would love to hear your recommendations.

A Delayed Introduction

June 19, 2017

After writing down a list of many ideas for my future blog posts in my journal, I realized that I sort of jumped into posting without giving you a proper introduction. Today sharing with you a little bit about what inspired me to create my blog and what you can expect from me in the future.

As mentioned in my blog post all about my online jewelry store lexaschicboutique, I absolutely love to create and design, and I love having an outlet where I can share my passions and express myself and my personal style. Prior to creating my blog, I posted fashion and beauty videos weekly on my Youtube channel Alexa Marsh, but my love of photography combined with my passion for writing fueled my decision to focus mainly on blogging. I deleted most of my old videos, but I still have several up on my channel. I still plan on posting montages and other creative types of videos, but just not as frequently as previously.
