My 2019 Vision Board!

Hi all!

I finally got around to finishing my vision board and it’s not the very best, but it’s perfect for me! This time I just put a bunch of pictures/quotes that will motivate me for this year. Last year, I had a lot of pictures of my husband/family and random things, but this way is better.

Here’s my vision board – I won’t go through each one, but I’ll explain some of them.

Let’s start from the top. A lot of those are about calmness and mindfulness which is something I’d love work on a lot this year. The picture of the woman is about me wanting nicer skin and getting better with my makeup skills. And of course I added something about my husband because he is #1 🙂 As you can see there are a couple things on here about him! 

In the second row, I have a picture of the Kindle which explains me wanting to read more this year. I can happily say that I have read SO much since I have gotten it! Family of course is important so I had to add something about that in here! We are planning to go to NYC this summer, so I added a picture of Central Park in there. And the last one I will mention in this row is the quote, “No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.” I often get discouraged when I attempt to make some food that I’ve never made before or sometimes even food I’ve made multiple times and it doesn’t turn out the way I thought it would. This is a great quote because it’s true, I will get better with time! 

The third row is just all quotes, so I’ll pick 2-3 that stand out right now. I really want to get rid of any clutter and just make our living space very simple. The picture with Pooh says, “sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” This is referring to my niece and nephew 🙂 And the last one I will mention in this row is the very first quote, life really is precious.

In the fourth row, I have the state of California map because it is one of the best states in my opinion and this map shows a lot of cool places to visit in CA! The woman in the bikini is my fitness goal and it’s very realistic for my body type since I don’t want abs or anything muscular. I feel like I could achieve this in 2019. I used to find really fit people with abs and make them my motivation, but it was too unrealistic and would take YEARS to happen. The picture of the palm trees and beach is a very special place in my heart 🙂 ❤ And the last one is about working out, eating well, and being patient. I’m not patient enough and this is a good reminder to be!

And for the last two sections, I’ll just talk about 4-5 of them. I added a couple things about traveling because that’s what I’m most looking forward this year and there is a picture in Disney Land because we are planning to go there! The pictures are because I want to take lots and lots of pictures going forward, that is the best way to remember good memories. I NEED to drink more water daily, it’s a huge struggle for me, but I am going to make it a habit. The picture of the hair is because I want long, healthy hair. And the last one I will mention is the plant, I want more plants in my house because plants give off good energy and fresh air.

There you have it, my 2019 vision board! I tried to be as realistic as possible and I think I can for sure accomplish most, if not all of these goals on my board.

Did you make a vision board for 2019? What are your top three things on there? 🙂

Lazy Sunday.. not really

Hi there!

Happy Sunday! Really wish I had one more day off to relax this weekend, I am not ready for this week of work!!! I can’t imagine how hard it will be for me to wake up tomorrow morning 😂 but on the bright side, it’s almost my birthday and in 4 days we will be going to Dallas woohoo!!!!!! 😀

Today I woke up around 9 and made some pancakes while Mirhad went to Lowe’s and got something for our pantry. Our pantry is too deep inside the wall so it gets cluttered so easily and we finally found a great solution that he’s going to fix today. I deep cleaned the whole house and it feels so nice. I took a shower afterwards and then was able to finally watch the latest episode of Younger and OH MY GOSH THIS EPISODE WAS SERIOUSLY THE BEST BECAUSE FINALLY THAT’S ALL I AM GOING TO SAY. I can’t wait for Tuesday!!!!!!!!! It’s gonna be GOOD. But yeah, I am just chilling out now waiting for Mirhad to start fixing the pantry 🙂

I think he is going to take me to get my birthday present tonight so I am excited (I obvi know what it is so I am even more excited) but even though I know what it is, I am still going to be surprised 😂

Will bring my computer to Dallas so I can wake up and blog, so more posts coming soon!

That’s all for now, see ya! 🙂 

My favorite phone apps

So I have had a iPhone for maybe 5 years now (all started with the iPhone 5) so I have had my fair share of good and bad apps. Here’s a list of my favorites as of right now!

  • Flo – this is the best tracker for women when it comes to cycles and stuff like that
  • Duolingo – through this app you can learn a new language at your own pace, it’s very cute and fun
  • Sleep Cycle – great app for tracking your sleep cycle
  • Daylio – just downloaded this the other day and I already like it, this one has you put your mood and what you are doing in as many times as you want a day and over the course of a week or month, you will learn when and what things make you angry, sad, happy, etc.,
  • Headspace – great app for meditiation
  • Calm – another great app for meditation, sleep, etc., this one is my favorite because it gives you lots of options and it has stuff like ‘7 days of sleep’, ‘7 days of happiness’ and they have pictures of nature and its beautiful
  • Groupon – a cool app where you can get discounts/coupons for most activities around you, saves you a lot of money and also motivates you to get out there and do something fun

Those are my top favorite apps right now, I’ll do another one later this year to see if things have changed!
