How I've Been Avoiding The Quarantine 15

I hope everyone is staying inside and safe. I am so ready for all of this to be over! I miss going to the beach, hanging out with my friends, and of course riding different attractions at Walt Disney World. I've been trying to avoid the quarantine 15-- the best I can. Check out some of my favorite ways to get physical:


Lots and lots of walking.

My mom is always asking me if I want to take a walk. But, hey, it keeps me off the couch. We recently started walking to Publix for our groceries. That's a workout.

Learning TikTok dances.

You would not believe the sweat you break trying to learn the Renegade. Follow me @guilianna13.

Swimming.

My favorite way to cool off is by going swimming. 

YouTube videos.

There are a ton of awesome workout videos on YouTube. They have a variety of dance workouts to hardcore ab workouts. They are so much fun! I really like some of the Zumba ones. (Let me know if you want to see a full-list of my favorite free YouTube workouts.)

7M Women.

This has been my go-to app for years now. I started using it during my senior year of high school. It helped me shape my body the way I want. There are a bunch of workouts to help you target specific areas on your body. Roll out your yoga mat and get kicking!


How are you avoiding the Quarantine 15? Comment below! Stay safe!


What's In My Purse? | Kate Spade NY Tote

Purses are my favorite accessory! My sister bought this Kate Spade NY bag for me before she left for college. (She is the sweetest sister ever!) Here's what I keep in my tote:



Michael Kors Wallet

Not available in stores anymore. It's super old! But, it matches! This holds cash, credit cards, gift cards, and receipts. 


Kate Spade Lanyard

Check out a similar style here. I love this lanyard! Not only does it match perfectly with my tote, but it holds everything I need it to-- ID, debit card, and school ID. 


Pen

You never know when you're going to need a pen. I love the Poppin brand!


Portable Medal Straw

My mom put this in my stocking for Christmas-- and I am obsessed! I've already got so much use out of it. Buy one for yourself here.


Advil

For when those lack of caffeine headaches kick in.


Charger

I love this one because it can clip onto my lanyard. Super convenient! 


The Essentials Bag

I found this bag for $3 in the Target dollar section. It's the perfect makeup bag holder.



I absolutely love this stuff! It smells amazing and perks up my skin. It's really nice to apply halfway through the day under the Florida sunshine.


Hand Cream

I picked this one up from Sephora for $5ish dollars. It's one of the most moisturizing hand creams I've ever used.



This essential oil is perfect for blemishes and bug bites. Mosquitos are always biting me! I use this all the time.


Deodorant

I'm always switching up my deodorant. This mini one fits perfectly in my makeup bag.


Hair Clip

I hate having my hair down when I'm eating. I either throw it up in a bun or pull it back with a clip.


Hand Sanitizer

I do not leave the house without hand sanitizer. You never know what situations you're going to get into. (Side note: I also carry baby wipes, gloves, and face masks, and a travel bottle of Lysol due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)


My Everyday Lipgloss

This is my favorite lipgloss of all time. 10/10 recommend. Check it out here


My Favorite Lip Balm

I picked this up from Sephora and instantly fell in love. It smells amazing! 



That's all that's in my purse! What are some of your purse essentials?

Fashion Lookbook | Spring 2020

I don't know about you, but quarantine has got me spending my moolah like there's no tomorrow. I recently ordered some pieces from J. Crew and J.C. Penny. (Shoutout to Cabrini University's Bingo Night-- I won a $25 J.C. Penny gift card. Hello new shoes!) I decided to style the different pieces I ordered to create the perfect spring outfits for any event.



Casual Date Night with The Babe




                           




My favorite thing about this outfit: the price. It was super affordable! I purchased the top from Charming Charlie's when they were closing. I got it for 99% off. It was less than 20 cents. My jeans are from Apt. 9. And, lastly, my booties are from J.C. Penny. I absolutely love them! They instantly dress up any outfit. Click here to check them out. I can't wait until Andres comes down and takes me out to dinner-- I am dying to wear these shoes!

Netflix + Chill



                           

This t-shirt is my new go-to. I love that it's a little oversized to hide those extra pounds I've gained while under quarantine. I also really like the cuffed sleeves. Check out the shirt here. I've been wearing it just about everyday since I've received it in the mail.

Farmer's Market + Festival Wear 



                           


While I was browsing J. Crew's website, I came across these adorable flowy pants. I had to pick them up! I ordered them in a size 4, but wish I would have sized up to either a 6 or 8. Size-up if you're purchasing!

The model wore the pants with a mustard v-neck and a pair of leopard print flats. I decided to do the same-- and I actually love it! I would have never been able to put this together myself. Oh, and my straw bag is from Marshall's. This look is super trendy-- I'm obsessed!




                           

I would have been more likely to pair the green pants with this black top, which I purchased from J. Crew as well. I decided to pair the outfit with tortoise shell earrings-- they're so cute! (Fun fact: they were also on sale at J. Crew for $5.50!) And, my hat, was thrifted for $3! I found it brand new at a Goodwill in Norristown, Pennsylvania. 


Shoppin' with The Gals



                           



I ordered this plain white v-neck from J. Crew too-- when I need one, I can never find one. And, this one is super soft! I decided to pair it with a tennis skirt from Lilly Pulitzer for an effortless, girly look. I found this LP skirt at Marshall's for a fraction of the price. #Steal


I am totally in love with everything I ordered from J. Crew and J.C. Penny. Definitely keep a look out for your favorite stores-- a bunch of sales are happening right now. It's an add to your cart kind of day today and everyday!! 



Amazon Wish List

I don't know about you, but I've been doing a ton of online shopping. Like an unhealthy amount. (Haul coming soon!) With that being said, I've been browsing Amazon and quite a few items caught my eye. Check out my wish list below:


SWEES Leather Apple Watch Band

For my 21st birthday, my parents got me an Apple Watch. I haven't taken it off since! Right now, I only have the white silicone band that came with it. I would love to spice it up with this rose gold band. Super cute!

Stainless Crystal Ring

Yes-- it is a knock off from Cartier. But, hey, I'm all about being trendy on a budget. $10 vs. $1,000. I think I'll take the knock off.

Wet Brush Paddle Detangler

I am in need of a new paddle brush and have been wanting to try the original Wet Brush. I am constantly brushing my hair when it's wet. I want something that will get the job done without damaging my hair.

SSSCase Travel Makeup Bag

I've seen this makeup bag in a ton of TikToks and YouTube videos. I like that you can customize the  compartment size to fit your needs. Not to mention, it helps your makeup stay in place on bumpy flights. I also like this design-- very Louis Vuitton esk.

Keebofly Jewelry Tree Stand Organizer

In the past couple of months, my earring collection has grown. I want a place where I can display my fun earrings so I can get the most use out of them.


I've seen these portable travel bottles on social media too. I think they are so cute! I love the colors and they're the perfect size for traveling. 

VAGREEZ Travel Packing Cubes

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been watching a ton of YouTube videos from way back when. I've been binging "Pack with Me" videos-- and have fallen in love with them all over again. Getting some inspiration for when I'm going to be traveling again. I'd love to purchase these travel cubes. They're pink and super affordable. Perfect for long weekends at Walt Disney World!

Nicole Miller Nail Polish Set

Within the past year, I've been obsessed with doing my nails-- especially now during quarantine. It gives me something to do. These nail colors are gorgeous! I would love to add them to my collection.

A Day In My Life: Quarantine EditIon

I hope everyone is staying safe during this time. Things are absolutely crazy! I decided to share what my day looks like during this quarantine. If you're looking for things to do while stuck inside, check out my latest post




Wake-up. I've been taking advantage of my days off by sleeping in. As soon as I wake-up, I gravitate towards my phone. I check all of my social media channels, including Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and TikTok. (I could spend hours on TikTok!)


Workout. I love starting my mornings off with a good workout-- mostly because I've noticed I've been gaining the Corona 20. I am constantly snacking-- does anyone else have this problem? My boyfriend and I FaceTime so we can workout together. I still use My Poppin' Workout Routine.



Get ready for the day. Shower, get dressed, and do my hair. I don't do anything elaborate these days.



Work. Work. Work. I love my job as a blogger because I am able to work from home. Let me know if you want to see an in-depth blog post on my work from home routine.


Lunch break! My mom makes the best flatbread pizzas.

More work. On this particular day, I spent my afternoon editing some graphics for some blog posts.



Social media. Social media is a huge part of being a blogger. I am currently trying to build up my TikTok audience. Follow me @guiliannamcginniss!


Emails and data entry. I respond to any emails I have and enter statistics for my blog. I try to do this weekly. It makes it easier for connecting with brands and companies. (Highly recommend if you're a fellow blogger! Let me know if you want to see what that looks like.)



Outside time. I am so blessed to be quarantined in a state where it is 80+ degrees. My mom and I like to sit by the pool and listen to music. We've been listening to Miranda Lambert a lot lately!



Dinner! My family ordered takeout from Outback Steakhouse. #Yum



Movie time! My family sat down in front of the TV to watch Onward. #NoSpoilersHere



Popcorn intermission. Popcorn is my obsession-- I needed to pick some up to finish out the movie.



Virtual trivia. Every now and then, my school hosts virtual game nights. They're so much fun! Last week, I won a $25 JC Penny gift card. I also like to FaceTime my boyfriend and do it with him! We have a blast!

Let me know what you're doing while staying at home. We'll get through this together. Stay safe!
