Styles I want to try in 2019

Hey guys!

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.ย 

Here’s the link to my board:ย 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!ย 

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

Creating a blogging schedule for 2019! โœจ

Hi all!

Hope you all had a great New Years! Last year, my blogging schedule was all over the place and now that I think about it, I wouldn’t even call it a blogging schedule. It was pretty much whenever I had time/felt like blogging. In 2019, I am creating an actual blogging schedule where I will have set times on when I will be writing/publishing new posts.

My original plan was to find a desk calendar at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx, but I had no luck. Then I thought about ordering one from Amazon, but there were some basic ones for $12 and I didn’t think it was worth it at that price. I mean, at that point I might as well buy a planner. So what I did instead was go on Microsoft Word and found a calendar template. I even found one that had every single month for 2019. I printed it out today and started filling in my schedule, this one will be strictly for blogging.

I took some time to think about what days to choose and I ended up deciding to create posts 3x a week. So for example I chose Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays because those are the days where I usually don’t have heavy meetings at work and that way I’ll still have time and energy when I come home to write. Fridays I always work from home so that one will be the easiest because I can just wake up earlier and start writing. I also wanted to pick one day every weekend to write as well. I think for that I might just switch days every weekend, like one weekend I’ll do Saturday and the next it’ll be Sunday. And then in the future if I have a vacation coming up, I’ll either just skip those days and make up for them or I will just leave it as is and continue the following week when I’m back. For example, we’re going to Tennessee at the end of this month and I plan to spend some quality time with my husband and family so I don’t want to be occupied with my phone or computer. For those days where I had to blog, I will probably just skip them and start fresh the following week.

For me, it’s important to create this blogging schedule because I feel like in the last 6 months I really haven’t been following my routine and including blogging as much as I’ve wanted to. We’ll see if this method works and if not, I will move on to another method. I want to step up my blogging so I can accomplish my goal of one day becoming a full time blogger. Hope this is a step in the right direction!

Does anyone else have a schedule like this for blogging? Does it work for you? Let me know in the comments!

Hi!

Happy Monday!

Woke up this morning and ate a nice breakfast. Finally back on track with the healthy diet, 8 days late but that’s ok!! After I ate my breakfast, I called the gas and electric company for new service at my house. One step closer to getting started!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Mirhad called me this morning to tell me why he overslept – because he was watching a show calledย End of the f**king worldย and he told me it was so good he finished the whole season last night. Given each episode is less than 20 minutes long with 8 episodes the first season so it makes sense to why he watched it all last night lol. So he told me to watch it all by the time he gets back from work! So that’s what I’m doing, just started the episode, we’ll see how this show is.

Today I plan on finishing this show and then watch Younger because I miss that show lol. Then I’m going to blog, hangout with Mirhad, and I don’t know what else. Maybe start that book today!! We’ll see where the day takes me ๐Ÿ™‚

But yeah, it’s Monday, the start of a new week. I wrote my goals in the previous blog post, but my one goal this week for myself is to relax this week before school starts on Tuesday.

I think I am going to write my long term goals soon and do some research as well. Might turn it into a blog post?? ๐Ÿ™‚

See ya later!

Hello!

Happy New Year!ย ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Wow, it is 2018.. felt so weird dating that in my title. 2018 is a special year because 4 years ago in 2014 I graduated high school and started college that fall. 2018 has always been that year I look forward to because it meant that I would be graduating college! Which means all of my hard work has paid off and I am about to enter the real world ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Thinking about the fact that in about 5 months I will be walking across that stage and leaving as a college graduate is scary but exciting at the same time. My life starts after that day… my real life. Sure high school and college were fun, but this is where the real fun is. My life will begin as a wife and a full-time employee! I am excited to start this new chapter in my life and I will definitely miss college and all of its little perks.

Honestly, even though I didn’t live on campus or wasn’t really involved in much at school, I had fun going to school with my best friend and my friends from high school. First two years of college were theย best.ย Mirhad lived on campus and I got to visit him literally whenever I wanted. I use to go straight from school to Mirhads and then back if I had a night class. I remember once I was late to my first day of night class because I was hanging out with Mirhad and didn’t realize traffic was so bad between our schoolsย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ย but yeah, first two years were so fun. Junior year I don’t remember much of as of right now. Senior year has probably been the best.. Mirhad went to school with me almost every single day (we would alternate with his classes and he would come to my school and vice versa). Entering my last semester of college, I have to say that I’m grateful that it’s almost over LOL. I’m just ready. I just want to start my life outside of school and with Mirhad of course finally ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

So last night was New Years! We partied in Mirhads basement with Sanela, Elma, Vildana, and Adem (Elma’s cousin). It was really fun, we danced, sang, drank some stuff, and ate some good food. It was a good time. I have a lot of funny videos so those will be some good memories to hold on to! We all pretty much knocked out around 2 am. Mirhad didn’t feel well (he’s been sick the last couple of days) and as soon as it hit 12, he was basically asleep on the floor. We were calling people to pick up the others so they don’t drink home, but Adem refused and drove off in his car as soon as Vildana and Elma got into Dzevad’s car hahaha. It was funny. I found Mirhad in his room cuddled up into his blankets sleeping, so I left him to sleep while me and Sanela cleaned up the mess in the basement. Didn’t take us long and after that she left. I put on my onesie and cuddled up next to Mirhad to help him feel a little bit better. It was -4 last night so it was soooo cold. We had 3 blankets on us and it was cold half of the timeย ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

So yeah we woke up around 12 pm, went to go return some stuff to Walmart and bought some chinese food from the mall. It’s literally the best thereย ๐Ÿ˜‹. After that we took a little nap – it’s that type of weather where it’s so cold you’d rather be inside in bed sleeping or just huddled up trying to stay warm, hasn’t gone above 6 degrees today ๐Ÿ˜ฆ After that my mom wanted to go out to dinner with Sanela’s parents and asked if Mirhad and I wanted to go. Which led to the decision of everyone going – so literally it was my parents, Sanela’s parents, Mirhad, me, Sanela, Ermin, Emma, Anel, and Dzenana (Ermin’s girlfriend). We wanted to go to Syberg’s, but when we got up there they said the wait was an hour and everyone was too hungry to wait.ย  So we ended up eating at the casinos restaurant. It was delicious and they had big portions so it was nice!ย 

Now I’m just in bed writing this. Mirhad asked to come by with a surprise snack (donuts), but he went up to Krispy Kreme and it was closed?!!? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Oh well, maybe another time. At least he thought of me โค I think I am going to start reading one of my books tonight that I ordered from Amazon. And maybe finish that Black Mirror episode we started yesterday.ย 

Tomorrow I’m going to sit down and write all of my goals for 2018 – probably for the first 6 months. I’m excited and ready to do this!!! 2018 let’s goooooo! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

Good night!ย ๐ŸŒ™
