Style on the 9’s is a fashion blog based on the weather patterns at UCF’s main campus in Orlando, FL.
In lieu of Florida’s bipolar weather patterns, I will give recommendations (with pics!) on what to wear, when to bring a sweater and/or umbrella and when to skip class and lay out by the reflection pond.
I love fashion but even more I admire many styles of UCF students. Warning to fashionistas: I may stop you on campus and post a pic of your outfit on here when the weather calls for it.

Summer is here in full throttle. This means every day is a beach day! Especially since Orlando only gets hit with rain clouds late at night nowadays. Even at the beach, some fashion must be considered. But first, are you bikini ready?
For some amazing and simple home workouts check out the videos on Tone It Up! 15 minutes a day-- that's all it takes. If you have more time, go for a light jog, bike ride or brisk walk with a friend.
Besides keeping fit, focus on what you're eating in the morning. Recently, my roommate concocted this delicious GREEN breakfast smoothie. It's filled with protein and nutrients and has a lot more flavor than a bowl of cereal. Takes only a few minutes to make and you can take it with you on your way to work or school.
Peanut Butter Banana Green Smoothie

Put the banana and peanut butter into the blender and puree until
smooth. Then, 1 cup at a time, add the spinach, each time blending

between blends and add a tablespoon or so of water if you need to get
the spinach blending. Then add the ice cubes, if using, and pulse until
**If you want to mix it up a bit day to day, add varieties of fruit or vegetables. Add whey protein!**
With a breakfast smoothie and simple daily workout, you'll be bikini ready in no time!
