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!

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.

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.

Things To Do Instead Of Using Your Phone

Hey friends! How are you all doing? I hope you all are having a wonderful day. I know I sure miss the warm sunny weather. Since I spend probably way too much time on my phone, I was inspired to create this post. I am trying to spend less time on my phone each day to really reflect and enjoy each day of my life without distractions so let’s get started with the post.

1. Stretch

For those of us who sit at our desks all day, stretching can be so relaxing after a long day. Stretching also has many benefits like posture, decrease in back pain, and more. Just make sure you don’t hold one stretch for too long as it can over stretch your muscles.

2. Learn a musical instrument

Learning a musical instrument might sound hard but there are a few instruments that only take a few months to master like the recorder or the ukulele and the best part is you can play your favorite tunes.

3.Take a walk

Walks are great exercise and sometimes they give you the most beautiful scenery. After I take walks, I feel so refreshed and happy I went on the walk.

4.Play a game

I honestly love to play games like Monopoly Jr or Uno. Although I don’t get to play them that often I really enjoy them when I am able to play.

5.Do a puzzle

I’m not too much of a puzzle person but when I start to enjoy doing a puzzle it’s always a lot of fun especially if you’re doing it with your friends.

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

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.

My Experience in Las Vegas: Part 2

Hello! Welcome back to the blog. I hope you all are doing well and ready for another post on my experience in Las Vegas. Before we start, if you haven’t read part 1 click here. Anyway without further adieu let’s get started.

March 17…Day 2 (technically day 3)

On March 17, we did a lot more sightseeing in detail. We went slower and took the time to get out of the car to take the photos. We also shopped for souvenirs (which are not pictured below)

Some photos at the Las Vegas Strip

After “sightseeing” we got to do something super cool. We were able to visit the shop from the show “Pawn Stars”. That was super cool seeing it on tv and now in real life. It was quite smaller than shown on tv which was quite surprising to me. Before you ask, no we did not get to see the actual stars of the show. That would be super cool though.

After looking around for this shop, we made our way to Red Rock Canyon and it was so beautiful. It was quite windy but it was worth the drive and if you were wondering, I did get to take a quick nap 🙂

After we were finished visiting, we went back to the hotel and “chilled” (as in watched tv)in the room. Since we went right before covid-19 quarantine, we decided to leave one day early so we could go back home instead of being stranded in Las Vegas.

We packed and got ready for the next day and the long hours of waiting.

March 18…day 3

We left the resort around 3 in the morning and got ready to return our rental car and start waiting for our flight to board. I was so tired I can hardly remember what actually happened but my pictures carry the memories of a life time.
