Good morning and happy Monday you guys!
My trip to New Orleans is 24 days away and you know I always love to plan ahead with everything because it makes me feel more organized. So I thought I’d go ahead and think about what I’m packing for those 3 days especially since we decided to go to the beach!
I think I’m going to bring 4-5 outfits total to wear out in case I need to change or I’m not feeling it. So for those I will have to go shopping for, but this is how I am imagining it to be.
- two dresses (need to buy some pretty ones)
- pair of jeans
- 4 pairs of shirts, can be casual or fancy
- 4 pairs of shoes
- flip flops for the beach
- swimsuit (need to buy a new one from Target soon unless my old ones can fit)
- beach cover-up
- sunglasses (need to buy a nice pair because I just gave mine to my mom)
- possibly a cute sun hat
- my pjs (a shirt and shorts)
- an outfit to travel in for the car ride
I think that’s about all the clothes/accessories I should be bringing since we will just be gone for 3 days. I always overdo it, but I guess you can never have too many back up clothes right?!
Some of the other things I’ll probably pack in my purse or book bag is my Kindle for the car ride so I can read my book, my planner (maybe, not sure if I want to carry this around yet), chapstick, wallet, my camera + charger, phone charger, and my camera stick. Want to carry around a light book bag, so I’m either going to use one of my older ones or get myself another one! I have been eyeing this Coach one, but I’m not 100% sure if I want to buy it yet.
What are some essentials you guys pack on a short trip like this? Should I bring anything else?! Let me know in the comments 🙂
One of my goals this year is to really get into fashion and to try out new styles. Since Spring is just around the corner, I’m already thinking about what kind of outfits I want to buy and wear. I’ve gotten some inspiration from Pinterest and want to organize it! I am thinking of outfits I could wear to work and also on vacations or just casually if I go somewhere. I rarely wear colors and am planning on incorporating them into my outfits.
So I decided the best thing to do is make a new board on Pinterest and have everything I like in there. I’ve been using boards a lot lately and it really organizes everything nicely.
Here’s the link to my board: Spring Style 2019
The problem with our city is that Spring can turn into summer weather real quick so sometimes it just depends on what you can wear. It’s usually cold in the office, so I will most likely be wearing cardigans/jeans from Spring into Summer. But there are a lot of cute outfits I’ve found and I cannot wait to use these as inspiration! I will continue adding more stuff into this board as I find more outfits, so keep an eye out!
Does anyone else use Pinterest to organize their ideas? What do you do for outfit inspiration? Let me know below, would love to try some new things out as well! 🙂
I didn’t get much sleep last night and it really took a toll on my day/mood. So I drank some coffee and it helped a little bit, but I think I need some food in my system to give me real energy! I’m currently eating an apple and working on some user stories for work. Tonight I think we’ll both go to bed earlier because Mirhad got even less sleep than I did because he was studying all night -_-
On the other hand, 8 more days!!!!! I am starting to wrap stuff up for work so everything is good to go for next week. And I am slowly starting to put a list together for what I need to bring – this will take a while. I have the essentials of course, but since we’ve never done a trip like this, I don’t want to forget anything. I need to buy other things like a small bottle of dry shampoo because I know I can’t take that big one lol.
What else? Yesterday we deep cleaned the whole house except for one room (the storage room) so we’re tackling that this weekend. Hoping to put everything where it belongs and have it ready to be a guest bedroom. There is SO MUCH random stuff in there, maybe we can throw a bunch of it away. A lot of it is Mirhad’s clothes, maybe his winter clothes? Not sure, but we’ll do something with it. That room will be the hardest to deal with, but it needs to get done. Otherwise, everything else is so sparkly clean 😀 we even moved our bed around in our room and it changed everything. I went an got the night stands we’ve wanted and they’re so useful already.
Haven’t been able to blog all weekend. I started a post on Friday, but the weekend flew by and by the time I knew it – I didn’t even write one post 😦 New goal is to post once everyday, that way I can write my thoughts down too.
But yeah, that’s pretty much it. Going to go work on some stuff and then plan 🙂
Happy Tuesday! Just got home from work and I actually had a really good day! Going to work from home a day or two this week. I have this huge project I have to finish by Thursday and present it to my team, so I have lots of work to do tomorrow and Thursday till noon.
It’s SUPER hot outside again today, like can it just be fall weather already?? Makes me not want to leave the house, but I really want to work out today. Ugh. I might just go take a run somewhere or go to the gym, we’ll see how I’m feeling lol.
I keep telling Mirhad we need to book the rest of our flights and we always forget, so I am making it a goal to do it by tomorrow night. The closer it gets the more excited I am!!! 🙂
I also need to go buy some outfits too, I really want some nice ripped jeans that won’t suffocate me hahaha. I’ll probably get them at American Eagle, I always find good jeans there and yeah they’re expensive, but they last for so long and are always SO comfortable! Plus, I can never find a good pair of jeans anywhere else that won’t fade or shrink after a couple washes.
So yeah, that’s it! See ya! 🙂
Happy Tuesday! It’s April, can’t believe how fast this year is going by, but that means one more month until school is over. Let me calculate how many weeks exactly – okay so 5-6 weeks because I know one of my classes ends in 4 weeks and the other our last exam is like the week of graduation. So I’m just going to say 5 weeks to make myself feel better 😂
Meant to blog yesterday about my day, but time flew by so fast I was in bed before I knew it. I woke up this morning around 9 and cleaned the kitchen.. seriously my siblings don’t know how to clean anything SMH so I spent like 30 minutes cleaning the kitchen. Apparently Mirhad came over last night and played FIFA with my brother all night and slept over.. I didn’t even know so it was funny to wake up to him in my dining room doing his homework hahaha. I drove him to school after I cleaned and then I came back and watched an episode of This is Us and I seriously miss watching that show but I feel like I have so much to do in this month that I don’t know where my mind is so when I’m able to sit down and watch it or any show I like for that matter it makes my mood better.
So I downloaded this app called Like to Know it and you can take screenshots of stuff you find on Pinterest or anywhere else and it’ll tell you where you can buy the clothes or whatever you screenshot. You can also follow a lot of bloggers who use that site and I found some people I like to follow so I know where to buy clothes from in the future. My goal is to change my style for when I start working because at that point I’ll be starting a new job and it’s important to look my best going into a professional setting! So on that app I found these wedges that I have been looking for in stores for like maybe 3 months now no joke and the link took me to Target’s website and guess what?! I found them at Target for $35!!! Everywhere else I’ve seen them they’re like $60+. Plus, I also had a 20% shoes coupon through the Cartwheel Target app and it brought my price down to $28, so it was deff a steal. I can wear those to graduation and even my bridal shower, they are so comfortable.
I’m about to go work on the house a little bit and then possibly go to the gym. We’re supposed to switch out all of the ceiling fans and clean the floor again and then Mirhad’s dad has some electricity stuff to finish up. We will finish the basement by the end of this week and when my parents are back from their vacation, we will go buy a kitchen, YAY!!!!!!!!! I’m very excited about that part. After the kitchen is done, it will be time to furnish our home 😀 I’m seriously going to have so much fun doing that. And then as soon as we are done furnishing… we are moving in! So like one more month and I get to live with the love of my life, yasssss! I’m so excited ❤
Last night I wrote out the ultimate to do list and I have sooooooo much to do 😦 May hurry up plz. At least when it’s May, most of my worries will be gone, like the anxiety from my bridal shower and all of that planning. All I will be worried about is graduation (I know I will be super nervous about that) but it’s all going to pass by so quick and then I’ll be married before you know it!!!
So yeah, that’s all, bye! 🙂
