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
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 ;)

ITS FRI-YAY! How's everyone's week been? I cannot believe that there's only about three weeks left of classroom work, then we hit the ground running with dedicated board-studying time. Time really flies when you're having fun... or working hard. HAHA. Today, I'm very excited to share with y'all two pairs of scrubs that Maevn Scrubs gifted me (thank you, Maevn!) in order to review. Both pairs are part of their EON/EON Active Brand, which is made of a more technical fabric, so it truly feels like you're wearing more of a work-out clothing than scrubs. And if you know me, you know I love wearing workout clothes.
The First one I'd like to share is this Hunter Green-colored pair. I'm in love with this color. It's gorgeous! The color is definitely a lighter green, but still very pretty & vibrant. (Here are the links: Top. Bottom.) The top has got A LOT of pockets which is awesome & it even has a triangle ring - which I haven't had a reason to use yet - that I'm sure will come in handy at some point. The fit was also really great because it was not baggy on my and it actually has a shape. Did I mention it also has side vents for when you know, you get sweaty? As for the pants, I'm 5'2" and THEY FIT! Not too long and not too short. I got it in a XS Regular (both top and bottom). And I think my favorite thing about them is the waistband. You not only get the waistband, but also the drawstring! I'm not really a fan of the scrubs that stay up only if you tie the drawstring SUUUPER tight, only to get loose again. So if I had the option, I would definitlely opt for something like these! I also love the tapered fit, so it looks clean and not baggy.
Next, also a pair from the EON/EON Active Brand, are these Baby-Blue pair! HOW lovely & spring-time appropriate is this blue? I paired it again with the navy blue Nike's (which I also wore with the pair above), and I think they go so well together! First, I'd like to talk about the top. This top also fit me so well, and I love how the shape hugged me and was not boxy. It also has vents on the side and back, for those more intense studying times, shifts, etc! (More details about it here). And the pants - these pants - they're called YOGA 7-Pocket Scrub Pant...
Y O G A ! ! ! Okay I got way too excited, but uhm these are so comfy too. As always, Maevn does not skimp on the pockets, which always ends up with something in them, haha! These ones don't have a drawstring though so if that's something you're looking for I suggest the ones above (but they also have other styles with drawstrings). But the waistband on these are like those of workout pants, and it's nice because it doesn't dig in, especially when you're sitting. So you're sure to be comfortable throughout your long study hours, work shifts, or even yoga if you choose to do some downward dogs in them! Lastly, these pants also have a tapered fit - so no baggy scrubs here. (More details about the pants here).
I'm so excited to be able to use these for 3rd and 4th year for all the times I'm going to be wearing scrubs (which I'm sure is many times).
