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!

Friday, weekend plans, & coffee! 💫

Good morning!

I am working from home today, I feel like I just need to work from home once a week for a change of scenario. It keeps me motivated. Anyways, I also woke up this morning feeling sick so it is a good thing I am working from home. Hope whatever this is passes by Monday.

The other day I bought some glass coffee mugs (well 2) and they are so cute. I have been making coffee in them and it looks like a professional capuccino that was made in a coffee shop!

Planning to go shopping this weekend if I get any better. Hopefully I do because I need some new clothes in general and for the trip.

Sanela and I are getting our nails done Tuesday and we decided to go once a month and just treat ourselves because WHY NOT?! I think we deserve it 🙂 so that will be fun, I am excited! I’m thinking about doing something like these colors:

Nails #1

Nails #2

Nails # 3

Nails #4

I wonder if they would be able to do some of these designs with gel polish or if it is only with acrylics? Super cute anyways!

I am looking for a book to read, so I am browsing Amazon to see recommendations, if you are reading this and have any good book recommendations, please let me know! 🙂

I also bought a camera recently, the Canon G7X Mark II and I am loving it! I bought it to vlog and record memories of my husband and I so I don’t have to pull out my phone all of the time and I also have just wanted a camera for such a long time. So I decided to go ahead and try this one, so far it is AMAZING. The quality, size, and basically everything is so great. I did a lot of research before buying this camera so I knew I would love it! I was also thinking about possibly starting a Youtube channel, not sure what it would be about? I could do makeup, daily life activities, traveling, etc,. I guess it would primarily be about my life and I am not focused on having a bunch of followers, just want to share my videos! 🙂

That’s all for now, I may blog again today, if not tomorrow then for sure because I want to possibly do a camera review? Or maybe a travel packing list for a short weekend trip like the one we are going on!

Until next time! 🙂 ✨
