For those hopeless sleepless nights... My fave websites of the moment

Friday, February 1, 2013



I've been feeling super nauseous and sick lately, so that resulted in me taking a "nap" from about 10pm to 1 am... and now 4:38 has arose and I cannot sleep. Still feel a little sick, but honestly nothing stops me from my laptop time. Normally when I have my insomniac episodes, I end up all night browsing the internet. I thought it would be fun to share some of my fave blogs with y'all!  

My fave webbies...

FOR WORKING OUT/HEALTH & FITNESS...

1. Blogilates - I love blogilates!! It's super fun & most definitely not intimidating. I'm not exactly the most athletic person, so it's a great way to get myself moving and active. You can pretty much make it as challenging as you want, and I love Cassey's upbeat attitude and music! 

2. FITSPOS (Check out my current fave one here, fit-and-furious) - I know this is sort of controversial, because to be honest, there are many tumblr "fit-inspiration" blogs that can give you a super skewed, unrealistic image of what a healthy body should look like. I try to find fitspos that focus on exercise and athleticism more than just being thin, or coveting "thigh gaps" - I love ones that have words of encouragement, before & after photos and exercise ideas! 

FOR WASTIN' TIME...

1. TUMBLR (here's mine!) - I love tumblr. I never truly understood the point of it till my sister showed me it, but I absolutely love it. I've had one for almost two years now... and I'm still obsessed. I would say I'm a pretty "visual-oriented" person, so a website like tumblr is perfect for me. I truly feel that it's a way that I'm able to express my feelings without actually knowing how to verbalize them just yet. For me, tumblr is more a "diary" type of blog, but there are so many ways to use it - Just like blogging, tumblr can really be absolutely anything you want it to be, it's super versatile. 

2. PINTREST - Although I do not have my own pintrest account... I love pintrest. I don't really understand the full entirety of it just yet, but it's great way to look at certain things (for me, it's bedroom decor), and gain ideas and inspirations. 

FOR FUN...

1.  The Beauty Department - It's such a great website with honesty, the best tips and tricks of the trade. They make beauty fun without it getting too prissy or complicated. I'm also a super huge fan of Lauren Conrad, and I love that they created such a great website that can help you add flair to your beauty regimen.

2. ROOKIEMAG - My friend Zoe just showed me this website! AND I love it! It's kind of a "hipster" version of a teenvogue or seventeen, but in website form. They have everything there from fashion to relationship inquiries. It's a new find for me.. but so far I've been obsessed.


FOR WERK...

1. BIBME - I know this one is a little big nerdy, but I don't even know how I would do my bibliographies without it. It's my favourite bib maker because it's fast, plus you can also get an account, which saves your bibliographies! I've been using it since high school and still use it in university to help me out with my "works cited".

2. Khan Academy - Khan Academy is really popular, and is the only way I am surviving through my drudging statistics course at the moment. They simplify their online lessons and go through certain topics (Math, Science, History... you name it), it makes great review as well. 

FOR MUSIC...

1. 8 Tracks - I know there are so many other "radio" like websites out there like Pandora, songza and whatnot, but I really do think that 8tracks is the best one. It's a great way to find out about new music that you haven't heard before, and the playlists are always something I'm in the mood for. You can choose whatever type of music you want to listen to, whether it's sad, happy, acoustic... I love listening to it in while I'm getting ready in the morning or in the shower. They have great workout playlists too, and you can even create your own and share them if you're feeling crafty. 

& with that, I'll leave you with the current words that are keeping me motivated...
