How I spend my “me time” + ideas ✨

Hi all!

“Me time” is super important to me because I think it’s an essential to happiness. Taking time to be alone, give yourself some love, and take that time to rest and rejuvenate. So here’s how I spend that time. 

I usually like to take a Saturday and spend a couple hours for this. The first thing I like to do is either take a bath or a nice shower so my face is fresh for the face mask I am about to apply. After I apply my face mask, I’ll sit down in my quiet space (which I made sure is clean and organized) and pick something to do. Of course, I can’t relax without a candle being lit! 

So by then I have already picked something I want to do, I usually pick something like this:

  • Blog
  • Watch a movie I’ve been meaning to watch
  • Catch up on shows
  • Catch up on my Youtube videos I subscribe to 
  • Drink coffee with my husband (this relaxes me, so if I am feeling like I don’t need to be alone at the moment, he will join)
  • Read a book
  • Read the news
  • Read some interesting Buzzfeed articles
  • Write a to do list and things I need/want

Yes, there’s SO MUCH you can choose to do! Maybe even just lay there and think about your day or meditate, craft, treat yourself at the salon, or go outside and explore some nature. There’s so much to do. I haven’t been able to meditate for some reason, I tried doing it with my husband, but I end up laughing at him lol. I can’t keep it together hahaha. 

I think everyone should have some “me time.” I believe it helps us in these ways:

  • Helps us relax
  • Gives us some time to think deeply 
  • Makes us more productive
  • Gives your brain a break + a reboot

So take some time for yourself and let your mind speak to you!

Hiiiii!

Happy Monday, everyone! Didn’t go to class this morning, so I got to sleep in. I swear this weather is making me so sleepy and my allergies are acting up so bad. After I woke up, I went to Mirhad’s house to figure some stuff out with his sister regarding the bridal shower and we have everything figured out, yay! Came back home and it started raining (hence why I am so sleepy) and cleaned the house. Me and Emma tag teamed it and finished real quick. Now, I’m sitting here in my living room watching an episode of This is Us and drinking coffee. I’m about to make pasta with chicken and veggies.

I need to find a dress for my shower, so I am looking at lulus.com to see if they have anything good with a nice price. I’m about to post some links of the ones I really like.

So these are the ones I really liked. I need to go in store too because for longer dresses I need to make sure it won’t be dragging on the floor behind me as I walk especially since it’s a white dress and it’ll get dirty quick. I am going to probably go sometime in the next 2 weeks to try on some white ones!

So I just finished making my pasta and it was delicious! Now I am watching Love because Mirhad really likes that show so I’ve decided to watch it, too. I am going to go back and forth with my two shows today and see how many episodes I can watch. Since I didn’t go to class this morning, I can’t really catch up on anything. So until then, I will do nothing and chill lol. 

I really want to buy a jean jacket so I am trying to figure out the best place to buy it from since I know some are bad quality, but expensive. I’m going to shop around online and see what I can find. 

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring!! Hope it brings nice weather 🙂 🙂 🙂 💐

1 more day!!!!!!!!!!

So that’s really all it for now, see ya!

Good morning & happy Thursday!!!!

It’s almost Friday and that means almost free from this school stuff!!!!! I really want to spend tomorrow laying in bed and finishing up some shows I haven’t watched in a while, but it’s going to be like 56 degrees tomorrow so I want to jog and spend some time outside. Maybe I’ll catch up on shows Friday night or something.. maybe in the morning I’ll wake up at 8 am and just start watching 😂😂 Anyways, I love Tuesdays and Thursdays because I don’t have to rush to get ready for school. I get to wake up around 9, drink coffee, and blog a little bit. I wish this was my full-time job lol.

Anyways, today I have to start my marketing assignment, like it needs to be done by today because I don’t want to work on any homework after today. I also need to buy bonds for investments class, so I need to do some research on which ones to buy bc I have no idea what I’m doing hahaha. I’m trying to think if that’s all the homework I have left…hopefully.

Yesterday my brother got some books he ordered from Chegg and there was a $25 Shutterfly “gift to shop”.

So I took it and went on the website and obviously I expected everything to be super expensive (it was) so I browsed around until I thought of a cool idea. I ended up making both of my parents coffee mugs, so each of their mugs has pictures with us (the kids) and then I wrote “We love you mama!” and “We love you babo!” and it looks adorable. Then apparently I also got a free magnet, so I put a bunch of our family pics on there and I also got a set of 24 address labels, so I added “Mirhad and Melisa” and our new address. Idk what I will use them for, but who cares they’re really cute. All of the items are supposed to be here by February 2-6 I think, so I’m excited to see how they will turn out. Praying the pictures aren’t super blurry bc I want them to drink out of the coffee mugs as soon as they get them 😂

Going to try to attempt my quiz from financial management again, got a 3/10 yesterday and even Mirhad helped me 😂 The way she set it up is that we have to take a quiz before she lectures about the material so obviously we don’t know anything, but the only good thing is that we can take it as many times as we want and take the higher score. So I’m going to try again before I leave for school and see what I get since I have until 1:30 to keep redoing them.

See ya!
