How is it almost 2017?! Although I’m EXTREMELY excited for it to be 2018(because one more year closer to graduation AND I’ll get married soon) I can’t believe how time literally goes by SO FAST. Also, I just want to thank you all for continuing to follow along on my blog as well as on my Instagram and it’s because of YOU that we can make this happen! With that said, here’s a review of Medelita Element Scrub.Read More
If you guys haven't heard yet, everyone had gone crazy over matcha - myself included! I'm SO OBSESSED with the green powdered goodness that is matcha, that I barely drink coffee anymore. SAY WHAT?! You read that right - I only really drink coffee in desperate times or if I'm enjoying a PSL or other lattes from some of my fave coffee shops. But TBH, if that coffee shop sells a matcha latte, that's what I'm getting.Read More
I'm a little bit over a week into my surgery rotation and it's been such a different experience! I was in family medicine for 8 weeks, and so being in the OR and in the surgery clinic has been such a different environment. One of my most favorite thing about it is the team work - each and every individual plays a vital role in the outcome of the patient. Anyway, I digress - today what I really wanted to share with you all is the Medelita Ionic Jacket! Which by the way, I wish I can wear into the OR.
This will be a "first impression" review since I haven't gotten a chance to actually wear this out to the hospital. I did wear it around the house with my workout clothes to lounge in. Hope you all enjoy this review!
Color choices: there are only two options available, navy blue or black. While the choices seem underwhelming, it's the two colors that are very versatile to wear within different hospitals. After all, this is meant to be a scrub jacket.
Style: I love the athletic style of this jacket, hence why I was wearing it with my workout clothes! It's got a sleek look to it, all the pockets you can ever ask for, and also a vent in the back to keep you cool. Also, the back is slightly longer to cover the tush if that's something that you like! As I mentioned, it's got A LOT of pockets so you're sure to have a place for your snacks, phone, pens, and whatever else you keep on hand.
Fit: Now, while the shoulder area fit me just fine, i found the length to be a little long. I know that this specific jacket was made to be long, but I'm only 5'2" so I think it's a little longer on me. This was not a big problem for me though! It's not body-hugging either, meaning the fit is looser on me. I guess different overall fit for different body types, but you'll see down below how it lays on my frame. (I got the XS for reference).
Quality: Last but not least, the quality. When I first took it out of the packaging, the material seemed high-quality and that it'll keep me warm once I do get to wear it around the hospital (which I'm excited to wear it for!). When I did wear it to lounge around in, it kept me warm because I tend to get cold easily. As far as a material, it is a little stretchy, and it's supposed to dry fast just in case you spill anything on it ;)

Happy Friday! Today, I'm going to be reviewing Medelita's Core One Tee. This review has been LONG OVER DUE so I'm very excited to share my thoughts with y'all. The Core One Tee by Medelita is not just an underscrub, but it's truly a tee that you can live in. I've actually only worn it once as an underscrub and loved it since it's thin and layers well. BUT what I actually LOVE wearing this for is: working out! Don't you just love double, even triple-duty items?! The tee looks sporty which is great because it doesn't look just like an underscrub - it really looks more like a workout top. I paired it with a printed Lululemon pant and it looked so great. TBH, I've worn it to the gym more than I wore it with scrubs. That's because as 2nd years, we didn't really have any reason to wear scrubs except for our occasional clinical skills lab.
The material is super soft, and comfortable against my skin. I will warn you though, although it claims to be a sweat-wicking shirt my 'pit sweat showed through while I was working out (sorry y'all - just keepin' it real). My workouts generally get pretty sweaty though, so it might vary for other people. Besides that, I love the stitching detail that makes it acceptable as a workout top as well as the "m" in the lower left side on the back of the shirt. The fit is also very feminine and I love that! It has also held up very well during washings despite the thinner material - I always get worried because some shirts don't hold up well and get holes - NOT THIS ONE. Did I mention that it's pill-resistant AND wrinkle-resistant? BTW, I got this in an XS and it fits perfectly!
If you're looking for underscrubs that you can wear once you're off-duty, to go work out or just to lounge around in, definitely check out Medelita's Core One Tee! They also have other items, such as whitecoats/labcoats (which they are highly popular for), scrubs, and more. Here is their website :)
What are your favorite underscrub brands?
*Many thanks to Medelita for sending me this top to try out!
