SHOP: Walgreens Healthcare Clinic and the saga to fix my ankle...

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.

So, do y'all remember right before I moved to New Orleans I sprained my ankle when I was running some errands. Well I'm a whole four days into Law School and I'm already crafting a negligence suit against said store... I can see it in the law books decades from now. Law Student slipped on lettuce in the grocery store, sues for punitive damages and wins a million dollars. Totally right? Anyways, I digress. It's been a few weeks now and my ankle still isn't 100%, so I decided to head over to the Walgreen's clinic to get one of their providers to take a look.

The Walgreen's healthcare clinic is awesome! So easy, so fast (which is key for all of us these days), and did I mention it was inexpensive. I was in and out for $25 plus they gave me some free bandages for my foot!

All you have to do is walk in during normal clinic hours, and use the handy kiosk to schedule your appointment! You can see them for general wellness, illness prevention or even minor injuries like mine. 

Then you wait either in the little seating area or you could go shopping and the page you! I'll give you one guess as to which one I chose. 

I was in and out of the clinic in 10 minutes with my recommend course of treatment (rest, ice, compression and elevation or RICE if you're curious)

You can pay with any major credit card which is nice... and did I mention you can peruse the beauty aisle on your way out? Love it. 

The Walgreens Healthcare Clinic is awesome for a busy student like me. They respected my time and are open longer hours which is way more convenient. I don't have a primary care physician, but get what? You don't need one. Which is even better because I'm new to the area and haven't had a chance to set up regular doctors appointments. I'll most definitely be dropping by again for a flu shot, or even a minor cough or cold. Flu season is not that far away, so we all need to take care of ourselves now, and with a Walgreen's in every neighborhood you really have no excuse anymore.

Monogram Swap Reveal!

A while back two of my favorite Georgia bloggers Sara and Nicole, (y'all know I have many) decided to host a monogram swap! I feel like back in the good ole days of blogging everyone and her sister used to do swaps, now it's all about the giveaways, but I digress. Like the good southern girl that I I love monograms, so I immediately signed up. Lucky for me I got paired with the lovely Nicole herself! Now I felt like Nicole and I knew each other pretty well before the swap, but her gifts to me only made me love our friendship more! So with out further adieu here's my swap reveal!

She know's I'm a Georgia girl at heart, though I may live far away from my home state. Accordingly she got me this FABULOUS koozie (girlfriend knows I love koozies too!) not only with my monogram, but with my home state as well! How much do you love this??

Perfection right? I absolutely love it, and it will most certainly be coming with me to watch the UGA Clemson game on Saturday night. 

Next up Nicole tried to get me a little something to help me settle into my new environment here in New Orleans. If y'all don't already know the fleur de lis is kind of the unofficial symbol of New Orleans. Seriously, they're EVERYWHERE down here! In that tradition she got me an adorable hat (and it's gray! love it!!!) with my monogram intertwined with the fleur de lis! 

So thoughtful right? Plus little did that lovely lady know I have QUICKLY evolved into a wardrobe of yoga pants, Old Navy tees and hats! First year law students don't have time to blow dry their hair! duh.  Thanks so much again love!!!

Game Day Ready

Happy Monday y'all! Today is my first official day as a law student! I have my first two classes today, and oh my goodness, the first attempts at homework have been a little more work than I anticipated! But what's getting me through this week you ask? My excitment for SATURDAY and the start of college football season. In my family though this is big game. My alma mater The University of Georgia is heading to take on Clemson University where my sister, both my parents and my grandfather went. #familyrivalry. I'm pretty sure the dawgs are going to take this one, but just incase I'll need a proper gameday look to wear to the UGA bar here in New Orleans. This is what I'm thinking

gameday ready

Perfect right? I'm kind of obsessed with that dress, and will NEED to add it to my closet ASAP.

Thanks again to all of you for your love and support through this crazy process that is the beginning of my first year of law school! Hope I see you soon! Go Dawgs!

Friday's Fancies: Back to School Style

Apparently my blog has turned into all things back to school style lately. I have to say these last few days in Louisiana have been miserably hot and humid. I love the idea of this outfit, but there is NO way I'll be wearing layers any time soon!


River Island sweatshirts hoody, $31 / Band of Outsiders asymmetrical shirt / Dorothy Perkins pants / TOMS red shoes, $61 / FOSSIL bag

Hope y'all have a great weekend!
