Hello friends!! Welcome back to Mackenzie Kateri! How was everyone’s week! The weather is starting to warm up again, so that’s always a positive!! My week was filled with studying for midterms and bullet journaling. Oh and how can I forget my visit to Temple University! Other than that just a normal life of a senior in high school!! Friday with friends. And Starbucks sippin’. I hope that everyone has an ah-mazing week! Work towards your goals. Never settle for anything less than success. And keep on keeping on babes! XO, MK.

1.22.18- Typical Monday of course! Homework and hitting the gym.

1.23.18-As the end of the quarter nears at school, I studied for a few midterms I had Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Then of course to take a break, I headed to Starbucks with my girls.

1.24.18- A little more studying and a lot more bullet journaling. I am going to be posting about my layouts and journal ideas this week.. but here’s a sneak peak! Inspiration for my journal is from one of my favorite bloggers- (Check her out she’s amazing!!)


1.25.18- After school, I hit the gym! I worked on my legs, so they were killing me the rest of the week!! When I got home, I tried out a new recipe I saw online- Protein Cookie Dough!! It was actually really good and super filling! Oh and it’s SO easy to make. I used almond butter, 3/4 Quest vanilla protein powder, and dark chocolate chips. Mix it all together! And you have delicious five minute cookie dough! It might not look Pinterest worthy, but it tastes amazing!

1.26.18-I visited Temple University located in the heart of Philadelphia. The school was amazing! They offer many prestigious programs that peak my interest. Also, the opportunities are endless. I enjoyed hearing about the internships and study abroad programs. After, my mom, dad, and I ate cheesesteaks at Geno’s Steaks. 


1.27.18- I started my Saturday running a few miles at the gym. Then, I headed out to run and a few errands! And finally, I ended the night hanging out with my friends! My bff Lauren hanging with my cat Sophie!!


1.28.18-After church in the morning, my mom, dad, sister, and I went out for breakfast at Perkins. (Breakfast selfie featuring my favorite Snapchat filter!!) The weather was so nice out, so I went running with my pup (he couldn’t keep up with me running)!! And as for the rest of the day, mainly lounging around the house preparing for a week at school.

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling (week) 22!! Sorry, I couldn’t resist myself! Hi friends, welcome back to Mackenzie Kateri! How was everyone’s weeks? Mine, well it was cold for sure. I had two days off of school because of all the snow! It was so nice to relax and binge watch Scandal, but on the same hand, I felt so unproductive! I couldn’t drive anywhere the roads were a mess! So I tried to catch up on some homework, blogging, and bullet journaling! Oh and some cleaning too! But anyway, let’s get to it! As always thanks so, so much for reading! And conquer your week. Achieve goals. Hit milestones. Strive for success. XO, MK Continue reading “Seven Days One Sec #22”

Hi friends!! I hope everyone had a fabulous week and stayed warm of course! Today is my 18th birthday!! And I had the best birthday yet! I am so happy and so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing friends and family. I want to share some of my birthday gifts with you all, so I am going to be posting a haul this week. But, I have even better news! This week I also bought a bullet journal that I am totally obsessing over (a billion Pinterest saves later). So if anyone has any cool ideas for bullet journals or layout ideas please comment, I really want to hear! But anyway, this week sort of well dragged by. I thought it was never going to end. I was practically counting down the days until my long weekend. So a few trillion hours later, here we are! I hope everyone has an amazing week! Conquer your week. Set new goals. And never stop striving for anything less than perfection. Remember that you are beautiful and when stressful times come your way, take a deep breathe, then dominate!

Wow! Week 20!! I can’t believe how fast the weeks are passing by. I went back to school on Tuesday, and that was little rough. It was hard getting back in the swing of things, and this cold, ugh it just makes everything worse. It makes getting out of bed in the morning a challenge! I just wanted to stay wrapped up in my warm blankets! I know, I know stop complaining! But anyway, the rest of my week was pretty relaxed, I mostly worked on blog post ideas and other various assignments for school. And on a side note- MY BIRTHDAY’S IN A WEEK! I’m so, so excited because I am turning 18!! It’s bittersweet though, I’m going to be an adult! How weird is that!! Adulting? Ew. Yeah, I’m probably being a little dramatic, I’m still in high school! Oh gosh, enough rambling… let’s get to it! I hope everyone has an amazing week! And I pray you all stay warm! Remember babes sometimes warmth comes before fashion… I emphasize the sometimes! LOL. As always thanks for reading- and T-MINUS one week until my birthday. XO, MK.

1.1.18- I went to my Grandma’s house for a New Year’s Day dinner with my fam.


1.2.18- Back in the swing on things at school after my holiday break! And yeah… it was a little rough adjusting back to my schedule. I headed to the gym after school for an intense workout to help me reach my goals.

1.3.18-I posted on the blog! Did you have a chance to read five double duty makeup trick? Click here


1.4.18-I worked on some schoolwork! I planned some upcoming blog posts and edited my ABOUT ME page, head over to check it out!! New pictures are soon to come. 

1.5.18- Because of below zero temperatures, my school district was closed for the day!! It was a little unexpected, but trust me, I was not complaining. I lounged around the house for most of the daily, partially because it was FREEZING outside, and well I was also exhausted from my school week! Dreaming about caffeine, I made my coffee into a winter snack! Add whip cream and cinnamon on top, it tastes amazing! My favorite health/ lifestyle vlogger, Sam Ozkural (check her out!!) loves this treat, so I decided to give it a try! Later that night (still freezing outside), my best friend and I went to First Friday- a local celebration of the arts.


1.6.18- My sister and I went to the mall for a little bit! I had some returns and wanted some new desk supplies. I scored this adorable faux fur bomber jacket at Forever21 (the store was having amazing deals!). Then despite cold weather, my sis and I went to Panera Bread for some smoothies! My favorite is the Peach and blueberry almond milk drink.


1.7.18- I celebrated Russian Orthodox Christmas with my family. After mass at church, we headed to my grandmother’s house for a Christmas dinner.
