My Favorite Summer Snacks

Good Morning Readers! Can you believe it’s already Friday? This whole week I felt like it was Friday everyday. It was a fairly busy summer week for me. You would think I would be bored out of my mind but I surprisingly kept busy somehow. Anyway for today’s post I decided to share my favorite summer snacks. Let’s get started then.

1. Ants On A Log

I have recently been eating ants on a log quite a lot. I love how the raisins balance out the peanut butter so it’s not as sweet. It’s also healthy-ish so you don’t have to worry about eating too many of these.

2. Cheez-its

Of course I couldn’t forget one of my favorite snacks which are Cheez-its. These are definitely not as healthy as the ants on a log but they’re so good. I have been eating so many Cheez-its my ears got plugged. That was not a fun experience for me and I don’t recommend eating that many Cheez-its 😉

3. Orange Slices

I also have been eating a ton of oranges. I like to slice them in wedges and they’re so yummy.

4. Raisins and Cashews

I have an odd obsession with eating raisins and cashews. It’s like a mix of sweet and semi-sweet(depending on your cashews) It tastes even better with white chocolate chips.

5. Popcorn

I also really like to eat popcorn. I really love the Orville Redenbacher mini bags because they are the best snack size bags. They’re probably half the size of the normal sized popcorn bags. When I don’t want to eat a whole bag I just grab these and they’re perfect.

Thank you so much for reading my favorite summer snacks. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Stay tuned for more summer posts coming shortly. Have a wonderful day 🙂

My Summer Favorites

Hello fellow readers! Welcome back to the blog. I hope you all are doing well and having a great day. For today’s post I thought it would be really fun to do a summer favorite post. I don’t think I’ve ever done one before so this should be pretty interesting. Grab a comfy chair and let’s get started.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Serum

The Ordinary. Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

I recently bought the Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum from Ulta and it has worked so well for me. I’ve only used it for about 3 weeks and it helps my blemishes heal so fast. I try to use it twice daily but I just mostly use it once because I either forget or don’t feel like doing my whole skincare routine 😉 The best part of serum is the price. You can get the 30 ml bottle for $5.90 USD and the 60 ml bottle for $10.60 USD

The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors

Another great product by the ordinary is their Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA. This moisturizer really helps my skin after I use the Niacinamide serum. The Niacinamide serum is more on the drying side to help with sebum, blemishes, and congestion so this definitely helps balance my skin from drying out.

CeraVe Foaming Cleanser Normal to Oily Skin

CeraVe Foaming Cleanser Normal to Oily Skin

The CeraVe Foaming Cleanser Normal to Oily Skin is probably the best cleanser I’ve tried so far. It takes off all the oil and dirt but it’s not harsh on my skin. It is also fragrance free which is a plus because sometimes the fragrances in skincare can smell absolutely disgusting. You can buy this product at stores like Walmart, Target, Ulta etc.

Target 6pk Washcloth Set

I actually got these in the mint color but I’m absolutely loving these washcloths. They are so cute and they do their job pretty well. I would say that these washcloths are pretty average so you don’t have to go out and especially buy these. There are many other options around that might even be softer too.

Champagne Toast Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

Champagne Toast Gentle Foaming Hand Soap

The champagne toast is one of my favorite scents at bath and body works. I absolutely love the scent so I was very excited when I was able to grab this soap. I got mine for about $5 excluding tax but I used the 4 for $20 deal.

Paperbag shorts

BEST ASSET BLACK PAPERBAG WAIST SHORTS | Petite Looloo | Fashion, Fashion  clothes women, Muslim women fashion

I have been loving my pair of paperbag shorts. They are not only perfect for summer but they are so comfortable. They also have pockets which are very handy for storing your phone or anything you may need to carry.

Thank you all so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed reading this post. If you have any blog post suggestions don’t hesitate to drop them in the comments 🙂 Have a wonderful rest of your day or night.

Life Update + A Very Exciting Thing

Hey everyone! Good morning and welcome to another blog post about my life. Today we are going to get a little more personal than usual. It has been quite awhile since my last blog post and I decided to share why it has been so long. I also have a very exciting thing to discuss so keep reading to find out about it. As usual let’s get started ⬇

Over the past 4 weeks, my weeks just keep getting busier and busier as I head into summer vacation. I have just been planning and planning for various and sundry things and trying to get ready for my next adventure. I will admit although I love to plan, it has been a bit stressful for me. I will still try my best to create content for you all. I can’t promise to stick to my regular schedule so I might skip a week if I’m too busy.

Although this may be a little disappointing, I should be back to a more regular schedule during the summer time as I have plenty of time to create content on the blog. Who knows I might even start a series of some sort. Whatever happens to this blog in the future, I want you all to know how grateful I am to be able to create content for this blog. I appreciate all the kind comments you all have given me and I look forward to this blog’s future 🙂

Now I will share the “Very Exciting Thing.” If you couldn’t tell, I have revamped my blog into a more “boho” theme. I am really into the boho\minimalist feel so I was very happy with the results. I love the terracotta color so it fit into my theme perfectly. I am still in the process of creating a new logo so be sure to look out for that. I may or may not do a post on that showcasing it.

I hope you all enjoyed reading my posts again 🙂 I definitely missed blogging on here. Hope you have a great week and see you next time!

Celebrating 1 Year of Blogging

Good evening readers! Welcome back to the blog. It’s good to “see” you all again. I hope you all are doing well and excited for today’s post because we are celebrating 1 year of blogging. March 28( Sorry I’m late lol this was the earliest I could get this up)marks one year on this blog which is absolutely crazy to me. I never thought I’d make it this far on my blog.

Throughout my blogging “career” I’ve had plenty of disappointments and exciting things happen to me but I’ve truly learned many valuable things. I am so grateful for all of you who have left kind comments and have supported me by following my blog or even just the people that read my content.

I am so glad my mom convinced me to try blogging because it has been so good for me. I have been able to let my creativity flow and it’s been a super fun journey. I’ve even learned some basic graphic design skills which is very handy.

As we go into another year of blogging, I hope to keep creating entertaining content for all ages to enjoy. See you all next time on the blog 🙂

Reacting To My Old Blog Posts

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all are having an amazing day today. Since I drafted a lot of my old posts before you all could see them, I decided that I should react to them. It’s been quite awhile since I wrote these so we’ll see if my content quality grew or shrank. Let’s get this show on the road.

1. The Key to Beauty

I remember this was my very first post I ever made. I made it almost immediately after I got my website open to the public. In my eyes (at the time) I thought this post was absolutely amazing. I was so proud of myself and felt like I was a professional blogger. Now looking back at it it’s not the worst thing in the world but it’s not the most amazing thing in the world either. I would definitely give it a 6/10.

2. A Girl Named Jupiter

Now I see why I put this in my drafts. I can’t even read these without cringing. The main reason why I actually wrote these were because all the blogs that were in my reader were making their own stories so of course I had to try it too but mine were a whole other story. I would definitely give it a 2/10 just for creativity because I guess since I had nothing better to do during quarantine I got really creative.

3. A Letter to You

I’m not sure what my inspiration for this was but somehow I was inspired to write a letter to those who were suffering from depression. This is the one draft I don’t necessarily regret because even though it’s not great, at least I was trying to help those who were suffering from depression.

4. Tips to Traveling on Your First Flight

This was my second post I did and it’s not too bad. I was definitely inspired to do this post since I had just come back from Las Vegas at the time. I would give it a 6\10

5. How to Overcome Distractions

Since we had online school, I remember getting so distracted at home. It was so hard for me to try and work at home so I wrote this post. I was definitely getting into the whole idea of blogging so that’s why I feel it was slightly more thought out.

6. How to Get Self-Motivation to Exercise

This was probably one of my favorite posts to this day. It really shows how my content began to grow and it was like a note to myself to exercise haha

7. Some More Quotes For You

This post was my first post where I got quite a few likes. Not that likes mean everything but I was so happy that people liked my content. That was a very exciting day for me.

8. My Favorite Somewhat Healthy Snacks

Looking back at this post I could definitely have dragged it a little longer. In my opinion this title is ridiculously hilarious to me. I absolutely love the tile 🙂 I would rate this post as 4/10 just for the title.

9. How I Got A Ukulele

How I got a ukulele was written pretty much near the 30 day gratitude series so I was so worn-out of content creating. I had absolutely no creativity and I felt second thoughts about blogging. I didn’t know if I actually wanted to blog but I’m so glad I persevered and kept blogging.

10. The Story of How I Got A Ukulele: The Experience

This was the last post I did in May 2020. I took a six day break to give myself some leisure time and rejuvenate. I would give it a 6\10 because it was good “at the time”

I hope you guys enjoyed this weeks post. I had such a fun time bringing this post to life. If you liked this post don’t forget to like it and stay tuned for more posts 🙂

What’s in My Purse

Happy Monday everyone! Can you believe it’s already February? Time flies way too fast 🙂 I decided for today’s post to share what’s in my purse. I figured it could be helpful for some of you or (hopefully) entertaining to the rest of you so let’s dig right into my kitchen sink.

Fun fact: When I was younger, I used to bring tons of stuff in my bag from everyday essentials like Chapstick to random things like band-aids and Neosporin so my mother use to call it my kitchen sink.

Steve Madden Handbags Dt571120 Black Handbag OneSize US: Handbags:
Pc: Amazon

This bag is probably one of my favorite bags I’ve had so far. I love that the strap is crossbody so it’s not as easy to come off your shoulder and this bag is actually pretty lightweight. I would say that if you have a big wallet like me, it might not be able to fit in this bag.

1. Phone

The first thing in my bag is usually my phone (unless it’s in my pocket). I like to carry my phone around me all the time. It’s definitely a responsibility to charge it and not lose it but It’s always nice to be able to check your blog stats on your phone.

2. Wallet

The next thing I have is my wallet. I always bring that in my bag so if I need to buy something then I’ll always have money with me.

3. Chapstick\ Lip Product

I carry Chapstick or some lip product in every single bag of mine because I am not a fan of dry or chapped lips. I have a bad habit of peeling the skin off my lip so for me it’s very convenient for me to carry around some sort of lip product. My favorite is the Vaseline lip therapy advanced healing 🙂

4. Hand Sanitizer

I’ve carried hand sanitizer in my bags for a long while. I think it’s always nice to sanitize your hands especially before eating. I especially love the Bath and Body Works pocket-bacs.

5. Sanitizing wipes

Pack of 3) Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes, Fresh Scent, Travel Pack, 20  Count - -

These wipes are so amazing for me. I wouldn’t say I was a germaphobe but I’m definitely germ cautious. I like to use these wipes to sanitize my hands and if I feel a surface like a public chair feels dirty then these definitely come in handy.

6. Mask

Normally if I had written this post in 2019, I would not include masks but since it is recommended to wear a mask. I like to keep a few masks in my purse so if they break or if I forget one then they are always there.

Why I Only Blog Once A Week

Bonjour! (Hello) Welcome back to the blog. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. I realized I haven’t done a bonus post in quite awhile so I decided to surprise you all with a bonus post. For today’s bonus post I will reveal why I only blog once a week (except this week of course) so let’s get started.

I don’t know if you know but when I started blogging I decided to do a 30 day gratitude challenge which was a lot of fun but since I was new to the blogging world it was one of the most challenging things to pull off. I remember the exact day the post was supposed to go public I was scrambling to get it up exactly at 12:00 a.m. I pretty much had to post every single day because I was so worn out from blogging and didn’t really know about the scheduled post feature.

After that I took quite a few hiatuses to try to revive myself but I lost most of my motivation to blog . I tried to force myself to blog twice a week and stick to a schedule but it was so hard for me. It just felt like it was turning into more of a chore than a hobby. School started soon after and I was so busy I had completely forgotten to blog for the whole month of August.

Luckily my mom reminded me to blog in the month of September and that was when I started my new “schedule.” It’s more of a reminder for me to blog once a week but it’s what helps me to stay motivated and keep making creative content on the blog so there you go! That is the reason I blog only once a week usually. I would love to blog more than once a week but I feel like I’m more rushed and not as creative as I could be.

I am so grateful for all of you who have joined my blogging journey and I hope to keep creating and expanding my blog in 2021. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you all in the next post.

P.S. If you have any particular posts you would like to see on this blog you can find me in the comments or contact me here

How I Plan My Week

Hello again! Welcome back to the blog. I hope you all are doing well and enjoying the first month of the new year. It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted anything so today since we are in the new year I wanted to share how I plan my week. I feel like planning your week simply just helps the week go by smoothly because you already know your goals and priorities and it helps you feel a bit more organized, so without further ado let’s get started.

Of course the first step to planning my week is to get a planner. You can select a digital planner if you would like it on your device or a physical planner to write stuff down. I personally have a physical planner because it works best for me. If you were wondering, click here to find out what planner I have 🙂

Since I have a monthly and weekly planner, I like to add birthdays and long term events to the monthly side like shown in the picture below and of course there’s a to-do section so I mostly write in things like blog posts and school assignments.

In the weekly section I prefer to write in things like reminders and all the things that will take place that day. Luckily there is a to do beside the boxes so I can simultaneously fill out my goals and priorities while jotting down events that will take place that day.

That’s pretty much it to my planning method. Most of my daily life is a routine so I don’t need to add too much to my planner but if you don’t have one it definitely helps with organization.

If you enjoyed this post don’t forget to like it and stay tuned for more content coming up. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you all in the next post.

My 2020 Recap

Hey guys! I hope you had a wonderful holiday last week. I know I had a great holiday from helping cook in the kitchen to gifting presents. In this post I wanted to share what happened in 2020 in my pov so let’s get started.

2020 was one of the best/ worst years of my life. Most of my vacation trips got canceled, I had online schooling which was horrible, and I was stuck in my house with nothing to do but through it all I learned gratitude and to not take things for granted.

At the beginning of the pandemic everything closed including schools, churches, and pretty much everything except essential businesses. I had never experienced something like this in my life. I had never really worn a mask except a few minutes or something at the doctor so it was pretty new and scary to me. I had no clue what would happen but I was just praying we would be safe and we were.

Since this year was very depressing for some people I’m just going to share the highlights of my year.

March- I started my blog which was a wonderful decision on my part. It taught me gratitude and gave me something to help my eagerness to get out of the house and I was also able to go to Las Vegas right before Covid lockdown.

April- I had fun taking a break from school to take a long walk with my sister.

May- School officially ended for me and I was finally finished with online schooling

June- My birthday came and I had a water gun “fight” with my sister and for all the curious people I had cake shaped as a hamburger 🙂

July- We were able to go jet skiing and canoeing which was so much fun I would definitely recommend it.

August-School started up again in-person and I got to see all my friends again.

September-I got a new phone which I’m so grateful for. I feel so blessed to be able to have a new phone with such a big discounted price.

October-My room re-decoration officially started.

November-Thanksgiving happened and I had a nice little meal with my family.

December- Christmas came and ended:( I had a wonderful Christmas giving all my gifts and seeing all the smiles on people’s faces.

Well that was pretty much my year and although it was awful sometimes I’m so grateful for another year. I hope you have an amazing year too and hope to see you in the next post.
