Why I switched back to a Macbook Pro ๐Ÿ’ป

Good morning you guys!ย 

Happy Saturday!!! I’m so happy it’s the weekend! Do you guys have any fun weekend plans? I have a couple things to do, but will mostly stay at home because they are saying there is a huge snowstorm coming. In the meantime, I wanted to share why I switched back to a Macbook Pro!ย 

A couple months ago, I bought a Mac desktop computer and I LOVED it! It’s been something I’ve wanted for years and after I got my full time job, I figured why not just get it? So I did and I gave my old Macbook Pro to my little sister. I had that one since I started college, so it’s been a good 4 years since I bought it. It worked fine and everything, but I just really wanted this Mac computer! I thought it would help a lot with blogging and making videos. Which it did, but it wasn’t for me.ย 

It’s been about 3 months since I’ve had the Mac and I finally decided that right now, I need a laptop. I can’t take the desktop to the living room and use it, it’s impossible. The only place I could use it in would be in my office and I only go in there if I’m working from home. Which is why a lot of my blog posts were only posted when I worked from home. After work, I was too tired to go into the office and work on my blog which resulted in barely blogging.ย 

After a couple weeks of thinking about this, I decided to switch back over to a Macbook Pro. The problem was that I couldn’t keep both, so I had to sell my Mac. I ended up giving it to my sister and the next day I went and got myself the newest Macbook. I thought about just getting the basic version, but the price difference wasn’t that much of a big deal, so I was able to get the one with the touch bar. It’s really nice, the keyboard feels awesome, and it’s super fast. I’ve never felt happier to have my Macbook back. Safe to say, I’m in love with my computer once again!ย 

The Mac was a great computer, worked nicely with editing videos and stuff like that. There was no issues with it besides only being able to stay in one spot. Which I of course knew before I bought it, but I didn’t know how much I’d need the capability of being able to move around and bring it with me wherever I go. Needless to say, I made a mistake when purchasing it and I’m glad I was able to fix it quickly! Now I’m able to bring my computer with me on future vacations and anywhere I want! It feels nice to take it to the living room when I get tired of sitting in my office. I also started taking it to work and in my free time I write when I can so it’s just really a win-win!ย 

Maybe in the future when I’m able to afford both and I live in my dream city I could purchase a Mac again if I need to, but for now this Macbook has my heart โคย 

Has anyone else made a mistake like this? Where you quickly realized you shouldn’t have bought something and kind of regret it? At one point, I just kept it to myself because my husband would’ve said, “I told you so!” Which he did… I should’ve taken his advice ๐Ÿ™‚

How we spent our Valentine’s Day! โค๏ธ

Hi all!

First off, Happy Valentine’s Day! โค๏ธ

This is one of the first Valentine’s Day that we have actually done something! I mean that in a way as, we never took it seriously. Yes, we would eat chocolate together and all of that good stuff, but we never took the time to actually celebrate and do something special. We thought since we’re married, we might as well celebrate and make it fun! I had to work yesterday, but when I came home I set everything up for this little surprise I was planning. It wasn’t anything really over the top, I just wanted to spend it at home with my husband, relaxing.

I had a vision in my mind, but I needed the supplies! A couple days ago when we went to Trader Joe’s, I grabbed some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cupcakes, and macaroons. Originally, I wanted to just melt some chocolate in a bowl and have us dip the strawberries in there. But as I was cutting up the strawberries, I changed my mind. I thought all of the fruit was sweet enough and we had the macaroons, plus the cupcakes! I had a bottle of Sparkling Moscato so I set that up with two wine glasses on this tray. This whole thing was set up on the floor in the living room. I found these LED candles that I bought a while ago and knew exactly where I wanted to place them. I started putting them on the table under the TV and lit a really good smelling candle. I also added my tulips in the middle. It looked so pretty! I had these lanterns filled with lights so I put that out too on the floor next to the table. Next, I put a red blanket on the floor with some pillows and started setting up the food.

Once that was all done, I turned all the candles on and found a Spotify playlist, it was literally called “Valentine’s Day Tunes” or something like that. But it was perfect. I told Mirhad he can’t look until I’m done. So finally, it looked perfect. I started playing the romantic music and I called him out and made him close his eyes until he was standing in front of it all. He LOVED it! He just kept saying how it looks so nice and how this is so sweet! We sat down and started eating (of course) and just enjoyed each others company.ย 

After we were finished eating, we started watching the Ted Bundy series which was super good (he’s so messed up) and we finished within a day! I recommend if you haven’t watched it already. Now I think all we will be doing this weekend is watching crime showsย ๐Ÿ˜‚

So yeah, that was our Valentine’s Day! Very chill and relaxing. I have some pictures of the thing I set up, with a video! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

My Macbook broke :(

Helllooooo!

So, some shit went down today – my Macbook Pro officially broke down. As I was downloading photos and attempting to play videos and edit them, it just went white and I tried to restart it and it was just SUPER slow and wouldn’t do/open a thing. Going to spend tomorrow transferring those pictures/videos and finally getting down to start this stuff I’ve been saying I’ll do for weeks now. I’m really sad about my Macbook, that was my baby. But I got a new computer so it’s okay… sometimes we have to move on to newer, better things. ๐Ÿ™‚

So just a quick update on what happened, I really was working super hard this morning and as soon as all of the pictures got transferred that happened ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am hoping to just reset the whole thing and use it not for blogging/video purposes. I’ve been meaning to get this new computer for a while now, but I was just waiting for the right time. Guess this couldn’t have been a better time!

*Hopefully* I can get some work done tomorrow. Wish me luck!

See ya ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunday activities + plans! ๐Ÿ

GOOD MORNING!!!

Happy Sunday!!! I just did something that took so much courage, I shared my Dallas video from Youtube on Facebook… took days to convince myself to just do it, but there are so many reasons why I hesitated. They’re really all dumb, I even watched a Youtube video with the title, “PLEASE START A YOUTUBE CHANNEL – YOUR EXCUSES NOT TO ARE STUPID.” I thought about sharing it for like an hour this morning, came across this video which motivated me to share it + motivated me to continue making Youtube videos. Here’s the link to that video:

 

Anyways, she had some really good points and basically it made me realize that ANY excuse I had for not starting a channel and making videos are STUPID. What am I afraid of?? Nothing anymore! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Little bit of a rant, but I’m done now. Woke up a little earlier this morning, had a delicious cup of coffee, and have been doing stuff that revolves around my blog and channel. Later we’re supposed to go eat with Mirhad’s dad and after I think we’re going to meal prep for the week. Mirhad starts school tomorrow (last semester yay!) and I know he’s already dreading it lol. I really wanted to ride bikes today, but it’s blazing hot outside, you can barely breath and we’re under a heat advisory thing until Tuesday.ย 

Can’t wait to get this week of work over with, 3 day weekend coming up!! Woohoo! Which means 4 day work week ๐Ÿ˜€ so I am looking forward to that.ย 

That’s all really for today, see ya! ๐Ÿ™‚

Monday ๐Ÿ˜ด

Good morning!

Happy Monday!! Let’s make it a great week! I am working from home today because we got in a little late last night driving back from Dallas. Speaking of Dallas…… IT WAS GREAT!! I have some photos we took and I will make a Dallas travel post ๐Ÿ™‚ It was mostly just videos from my camera so I actually might make a montage video of it and possibly post it on Youtube (of course if I figure out how to edit it) but I do have some pictures of the city.ย 

Today I don’t have a huge to do list, but I still have things to do. Here is a little bit of it:

  • Go to a car dealership – look @ cars, we are looking for another car so we have 2 so Mirhad can drive to school next semester. We are thinking about getting something bigger because we have been wanting a bigger car + it will be better for future tripsย 
  • Unpack my suitcaseย 
  • Catch up on the newest episode of KUWTK (I feel like I am back in college writing my to do list because I’d write things like “catch up on my show” lol)
  • Blog (doing it now)
  • Clean around the houseย 
  • Water the plants
  • Read book I bought (about trips) – look for a new book to read
  • Work on video from trip

That’s the list so far… I doubt I will do everything today (I tend to get lazy.. which reminds me I need to get on top of my shit lol)

Talk to you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Friday, weekend plans, & coffee! ๐Ÿ’ซ

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ย โœจ
