School, Scholarships, Sports, Style - My Mid Week Update


  I just got back from my pasta party which was so much fun even though I couldn't stay for too long. Tomorrow is the day of ECC's (Eastern Connecticut Conference) for cross country and it is also my last race. It's really sad and exciting at the same time. We are going to be running on a golf course and while I would like to be positive and say I like the course..., I have to admit that this course is my least favorite. It is the toughest course because of all the hills and grass that cover it. I really want to do well tomorrow and it would be awesome if we won for our division. *crosses fingers*


Cross Country Jacket

Cross Country Jacket
 For cross country, we recently received our jackets and they are the best things ever! These new jackets are fitted and super cozy. It is waterproof on the outside and on the inside, it is made from fleece! The fleece part keeps us really warm especially for those meets in the morning. I wish I could keep this jacket, but sadly we have to give them back at the end of the season =(. I'm going to attempt to buy this from my coach though because I love it a lot. I literally have worn it everyday since getting it. 

Ips Egg White Chips Review

Vega Sport Performance Protein Review

I haven't tried either of these foods yet, but I do plan on trying them this week! The egg white chips sound very tempting since I love cinnamon! I hope they taste yummy!! I've never heard of the brand, but from online reviews, they do have a good reputation. I discovered vega drinks a while back and actually sampled one of their drinks before. I must that it was very delicious and nutritious so I bet this "performance protein" would taste good too. I think I will be drinking this after my race tomorrow. My muscles need to recover from running all those hills =)
Charlotte Russe White Boots
These are so cute!
I also have a pair of boots from Charlotte Russe that I am dying to wear! I got these from a friend who brought them, but couldn't fit into them comfortably. They were a size too big, so she gave them to me. (she has really tiny feet b/c these are a size 6!) I really want to wear them soon, but I just don't have an occasion. I also don't look the most balanced in heels, but I have been walking around in these and they are surprisingly pretty comfortable!
Nail Polish HaulLustre Shine Polish Glit


Covergirl Mint Mojio

I don't know why, but I keep picking up new nail polishes each week! They are not for me, but rather for another friend's birthday gift!! I really wish I could use some of this polish! I just never know what to get my friend's so I always pick up makeup products or nail polishes for them. =) I mean I would like to receive beauty products for my birthday present and I kinda assume my friend's would too and I find them better gifts than gift cards.. I am literally the worst when it comes to gifts! 

Heart Of Darkness Review

As far as school goes, I have been super busy with all my classes. It's quite difficult balancing school and college applications. The book we are currently reading in english class is The Heart Of Darkness. I'm halfway through the book right now and I don't know what to think of it. I feel like I am reading someone just talking about their life while on a boat?? ... This is why I hate english class hehe. 
Aside from my schoolwork, I found out today that I have been nominated for a scholarship at Uconn. The scholarship is called the "Day Of Pride" scholarship and is awarded to only 15 people in Connecticut. If I get the scholarship, it is basically a full ride to college!! It's an honor to be nominated, but I don't think I will get it. The application form literally highlights how hard it is to actually receive the scholarship. =0 To apply, I must get all my common app and supplement essays done before November 1st! This is crazy and I'm far from being done, but I do plan on spending this weekend finishing that up and getting my things together! 

Sunset in the fall
The sunset this week as taken by my younger sister =) 
 I'm sorry if the writing in this post seems sporadic. I didn't expect to be so busy today, but I was able to get some things done this morning since I didn't go into school till 10:30 =) (Thank you PSAT's!)
My mind is currently focused on my meet tomorrow. It's my last meet and I want to run it well and enjoy it. It's scary and sad but also a relief to know I will never be racing a cross country race ever again. I really and going to miss it! 
That is about it for today's post. I am going to be a bit earlier tonight so I can be well rested tomorrow. Good night everyone! =)


Do you love getting new sports gear as much as me?
Do you have any tips for walking in heels? so far I have found that walking on my toes helps a lot!

  12. Oooh Mindy I love those boots!! They are adorable!! I would totally rock those. Do you know if they are still available at Charlotte Russe? If they are let me know because I'll have to run over there and pick them up, lol. They'd go perfectly with an off-white pea coat that I have. :)

    I love the Covergirl nail color you bought as well. That whole line is amazing, it lasts so long and dries pretty quickly.

    xo, Sarah

    Hustla, baby.

    1. Sadly, I don't think they are available anymore , but if I see any shoes very similar to these, I will tell you! I have been looking for a pea coat of my own!! I want one, but they are all so costly!!
      I agree!! The covergirl line is very nice!

  30. i suck at walking in heels too haha. I have no idea how to walk in stilettos. Usually, I wear heels with a platform heel, or with a wedge, or my Jeffrey Campbell Litas (4.5 inches but has like a 2.5 inch platform---so comfortable!!)
