My Chic Week: February 19-25

Happy, happy Friday y'all! With spring break just around the corner (literally so close), I have definitely been feeling a lot of stress from a lot of assignments and tests. Luckily, it's the weekend and I can't wait to just relax after a crazy week and I'm taking over the She Can Instagram tomorrow, get excited!


Friday was a fairly stress-free (well it wasn't very stressful, I don't think school can ever be completely stress-free) and went by fairly quickly. After school, I had a few errands to run but just relaxed at home that night, which was nice after a busy week!


Saturday was pretty relaxed as I went to the gym and ran a few errands that morning. I pretty much did homework and relaxed in the afternoon before going to Saturday night Mass with my family. After dinner, I watched The Fault in Our Stars with my sister as I saw it the night it came out in theaters and she just read the book. Safe to say we both cried a bit during the movie!


Sunday morning, I slept in super late (almost to 11 AM!) and then got ready for the day. I later picked up one of my friends and headed to Starbucks to study and catch up (honestly, it was more catching up than studying). It was so fun catching up with her and of course, having a few cups of coffee!


I realized on Monday just how busy this week would be. Of course, last week I had very minimal amounts of homework so of course this week would be insane ;). I had two, very big tests smack in the middle of the week so most of my *free* time after school was spent studying for those.

Tuesday was a fun day as I started my new nannying job for a family that I babysit for. So far, it's been a lot of fun and I am so excited to continue my nannying adventures this spring and into summer! After getting back home, I unfortunately had to study for a Pre-Calculus test.


Three key words for Wednesday was math, NHS, and APUSH (does that count as 1 word, haha?). I had my Pre-Calc test in the morning followed by lots of APUSH studying during my free period. I stayed late after school to take a math placement test for next year and then headed home to do a bit of homework before heading back to school for NHS Induction. In addition to adding new members into our chapter, I was officially inducted into my role as treasurer (which I talked about in this life catch up post). Wednesday was another late night as I continued to study for my APUSH test!

After my APUSH test first block Thursday morning, my day was so much easier. I shockingly had barely any homework which left the majority of the afternoon free for nannying and blogging!

On my radar this week:

1.Traveling! Over the next few months, I have a lot of traveling going on and I couldn't be more excited! I am heading to Winston-Salem in a few weeks for a college tour, both Florida and NYC during my Spring Break, Virginia in early May, college trips with my school to Columbia, South Carolina, Savannah, and Charleston in May, and my family's trip out to Hawaii in July! Be prepared for lots of travel themed posts and please me any recommendations for any of these areas in the comments or email me at chicincarolina@gmail.com

2. Lauren James just released their spring line and oh my goodness, it is so gorgeous! I love everything and will be doing a post on my favorites later!

3. This outfit from Ashley is way too cute!

4. I borrowed my mom's Kendra Scott pendant necklace a few times this week and I'm obsessed! I think I may need to buy one in a different color soon!

5. My week has certainly been busy school wise and I love Dorothy's post on Midterm Study Tips that also can be applied to studying in general!

Be sure to check out my posts from this past week!


Hope y'all have a great weekend and happy Friday!

  5. I bawled during that movie and most definitely ugly cried while I read the book, but still such a great story. All of your upcoming travels sound amazing! I'm hoping to make it to Charleston this year :)

    1. Oh me too! My friends and I saw it opening night and we sobbed the whole time, last week was actually the second time I've seen it due to the amount of tears! I'm so excited, I have traveled to Kiawah (right near Charleston) but haven't actually been to the city before!
