I put a poll on my Instagram to see if a finals post was wanted, and it got a very positive reaction. So, here it is, how to survive finals. I know this may be late for some of you, but ironically, this post is going up late because of my final exams. I have exams the second and third weeks of June. I am graduating from middle school in 2 weeks, so I am almost done! This year I am taking two Regents (state tests), the FLACS (foreign language test), and two other finals! Because of this, I am spending a lot of time preparing. I wanted to share my routine of how to “survive” and pass exams.

  1. First, start studying at least a week or two in advance. I tried my best to start about 3 weeks ahead, but timing is different for everyone. I find that a studying technique that works for me is repetition. So, in order to know something well enough to take a test on it, I have to review, review, review. This is what works for me, but adjust your studying depending on what works for you.
  2. Next, organize your notes. I would recommend that you should get your notes together by unit since that makes it easier to study.
  3. Once you have everything organized, write it down. I recommend getting a planner to organize and create a plan. I take the units and divide them up by days to see how many days I have to study each unit. This is hard to explain, but let me give an example. If I learned 10 units in Social Studies this year and I start studying 3 weeks in advance, that gives me about 2 days for each unit. By the time the test comes, you will have reviewed all the topics covered during the school year (even stuff you learned in September). Plus, on weekends you can go over the units you reviewed that week.
  4. Once you are done planning, time to study. Each day, do what you wrote in your planner. If you planned it out right, then you should be all set once your finals arrive!  Of course, you might need to adjust for the difficulty of different units.

I know this was a shorter post, but I thought I would share what I do to prepare for finals. Most of this is pretty straight forward and I know it isn’t anything crazy, but I hope you found something that will help you study. I thought I would end this post by wishing you good luck on all your finals! Remember, you are almost done and summer is just around the corner!

This is an older post that I just found and I still thought you might enjoy it so I decided to post it!

I went to DŌ! I have been wanting to try their cookie dough for a long time, and I finally got the chance. You may have seen them on Instagram. If you haven’t heard of DŌ, its a cute “restaurant” in Manhattan that makes edible cookie dough and ice cream. It is so cute and super Instagrammable. I bought a cup with two flavors. I chose “sweet and salty” and “unicorn”. They were both delicious, but really sweet, so I could only have a few bites at a time. I went with a friend and she got unicorn too, so they looked super cute together. I highly recommend going if you ever get the chance to go. Enjoy the pictures because they describe the experience best!

Thank you so much for reading this week’s posts! I am so sorry the quality of the pictures is so bad. The only camera I have is the one on my iPhone. I will hopefully get a camera soon! Make sure to come back next week for another blog post! – Suki <3

T-Shirt Collection

I have a lot of t-shirts. I wear t-shirts almost every day of the year. Since I live in New York, we have hot summers and cold winters. I wear t-shirts when its hot and when its cold. I am trying to change it up this summer with different pieces, but for now, here are some of my t-shirts. Most of the shirts are basic, simple ones you have probably seen before, but others are more unique. I hope you enjoy my t-shirt collection.

I wore these all the same way, but there are much more interesting ways to pair these. Thank you so much for reading this week’s post! I hope you liked it and is getting you excited for summer!

I thought I would do another favorites post since they were highly requested on my Instagram. Today, I thought I would share my favorite Netflix shows to binge.

Starting with the best, The Office. The Office is and will always be my favorite show! It is the funniest tv show I have ever watched. If you have not tried this show out yet, it is a MUST WATCH!

Next is End of the F*cking World. I wasn’t so sure about this one when I first started it, but it got so good and by the end I could not stop watching.

Parks and Rec is another funny classic. I like this one and I think it can be so incredibly funny. If you like The Office, then you will definitely like this.

Girlmore Girls is a show that I am currently watching and I am really enjoying it. It can be funny and I have fallen in love with the characters.

Stranger Things is another one of my favorites. I just think it is really, really good. The soundtrack is also really great since the show is based in the 80’s. If you haven’t watched Stranger Things yet, then I really think you should.

Finally, Riverdale. Riverdale is also really good. Although, not on purpose, I can find the characters funny and since it is a mystery, I always want more. I can’t wait till the next season comes out on Netflix!

Mini Milk Makeup Review

I recently bought 3 new Milk Makeup products. 1 which is makeup, another which is skincare, and a third that is in between. I had been eyeing the products for a couple of months so I was super excited when I finally got my hands on them. You can find Milk Makeup in Urban Outfitters, although there is a bigger selection in Sephora. I love the aesthetic/theme of the company. All of their products are very good for your skin. I read the ingredients on all of them. I found for at least the three products I own, that their products are loaded with natural oils, such as Jojoba oil, Hemp oil, mango seed oil, and many more. The brand is also cruelty free and vegan. Overall I love what the brand stands for and so far the products the make up the brand.

The three products I purchased, were the Cooling Water, Matcha Cleanser, and Highligter. Milk makeup has very natural makeup and I find them to be a brand that supports the no-makeup makeup look. That is why I purchased their dew effect Highlighter. I do not wear makeup. This is really the first makeup I have ever owned. I also have no real inclination to wear a ton of makeup. I personally am more into products like, blush, bronzer, highliter, rather than foundation and concealer and all that. That is why I started with the milk makeup highlighter, since it is supposed to give a dewy natural look, that I love. The highlighter has been incredible. Since I don’t own any makeup I don’t own any brushes. I apply the highlighter with my fingers, and I simply dab and blend it out. I have a ton of fun playing around with it and trying out different things with it.

The next product I purchased was the Matcha Cleanser. I had heard good things about this and I heard that it can help with blemishes. I decided to try it out. So far, I love it! This is an amazing cleanser. It is small exfoliating beads so it is able to gently remove dead skin cells while you are cleaning your face. I feel so incredibly clean and refreshed after and maybe its just me, but I do feel like I have a slight natural glow once I have finished washing my face! This is my new favorite cleanser I will defiently be re-purchasing it!

Finally, the milk makeup cooling water. This is the product that I had been wanting for the longest. Since I don’t wear conceal as I said before, I love to minimize my dark circles any way I can. That is why I was so excited when I found out that Milk sold a cooling water. It said in the description that it was supposed to cool down skin, minimizing dark circles and leave skin refreshed. Another thing I don’t do is drink coffee in the morning. So I do not ingest any caffeine. This product contains caffeine, so it will give me the affects of caffeine on my face without my having to drink coffee.

Overall, I am a big fan of milkmakeup and when I get some more stuff I will let you know how it is. I would recommend all the products I talked about in this posts and I left a link below to their website! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you got something out of this post! I hope you have a great week, and come back next week for another new post!
