Hello March! ๐ŸŒผ

Good morning!!

Happy Friday guys!ย 

I woke up this morning feeling very refreshed and looked outside my window only to find more ice on the ground. I had great sleep and then I realized it’s March and got super excited! The weather forecast is showing that it will get much warmer after the 8th of March. So glad the winter is finally going away and I can enjoy some fresh air. Speaking of a new month, that means we have some goals to write out!ย 

Goals for March:

  • Learn a new sport (already have one on mind, will make a video about it)
  • Lose 10-15 poundsย 
  • Start vlogging – post first video on Youtubeย 
  • Be consistent with my blog posts
  • Make a laundry routine so we don’t fall behind on laundry
  • Share my blog, be more open about itย 
  • Workout 5x a week
  • Sleep 8 hours every night and wake up at 5 am every morning
  • Go to bed earlier
  • Clear up my acne scarring/skinย 
  • Spend time outdoors as much as I can as soon as it gets warmer outside
  • Read at least 1 book
  • Get back into writing my to-do lists
  • Save money from every paycheck for our future vacations
  • Buy our Disneyland and Universal Studios tickets before the end of the month
  • Work on myself, mentally and physically
  • Only buy new clothes if I lose weightย 
  • Have at least 3 date nights with my husbandย 
  • Spend less time on my phone and more time with my husbandย 

That sounds like a pretty good list and things I can for sure accomplish! I didn’t want to make it too goal heavy because sometimes it gets unrealistic, but I know that I could do a bunch of these. And even if I only do 50% of this list, it’s still something!ย 

Do you have any goals for March? How do you write them out and make sure you get them done? Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

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™‚

 

 

 

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™‚

TGIF!

Happy Friday!!!

So glad it’s Friday, it’s been a busy week and I am happy to relax a bit this weekend and get some stuff done that I should’ve gotten done a while ago lol. Hate the feeling of having something to do on your list and you just never get around to it… so annoying!!!

Mirhad and I made this chicken veggie thing in the crockpot and it didn’t turn out as good as it should’ve ๐Ÿ˜ฆ last time we made something with the crockpot, we had a bunch of chicken + potatoes… I think that’s what made it taste so good lol. So I guess we’ll have to through it out and try something else next time.ย 

Mirhad woke me up at 6am this morning to wake up for work so I can help him with this idea he had so I’ve been up since 6 and working since 6:30. So I guess the good thing about this is that I can stop working around 2:30 ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

Today I have some stuff I need to get done, but I am just going to do them throughout the day. #1 is organizing my bills and seeing what’s left to pay. Sometimes being an adult sucks lol, I miss those days where I didn’t have to worry about utility bills ๐Ÿ˜ฆ oh well, I think it’s worth it!

But yeah, I’m trying to think of what else?? I really want to make that blog post today about what I need to buy/bring on our trip, I hope I can sit down today and just get started on that. It’ll help me later on so I don’t have to panic last minute and look for things I need.ย 

One question…. WHY ARE HOTELS IN VEGAS SO DAMN EXPENSIVE?!??!?!? Like come onnnnn, this is way too overpriced! Ugh, I need to think of an alternative or get lucky and find something cheap. So I am currently on a hunt to find the best place, it’s only for one night so how hard can this possibly be lol.ย 

Okay that’s it, rant over! Did I really rant tho?? Idk maybe lol.

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™‚

Thursday Vibes ๐Ÿ

Good morning!!!

Working from home today and tomorrow, just enjoying my time working with my hubby. This morning we had french toast with strawberries for breakfast and it was delish. Tomorrow we officially start back up on keto (yes we didn’t end up going back on it on Monday, shit happens) but it’s okay. I know we can do this and we will!

Currently drinking my first cup of coffee and writing this post. Today I have plans to:

  • Blog + Vlog
  • Go grocery shopping
  • Plan out our trip –> figure out the flight and car rental details
  • Put up fall decor

Putting up the fall decor today because pretty much for the past couple days it has been around 50-60 degrees in the morning so I think that officially calls for putting up fall stuff!!! Woohoo!! I love the fall weather, just not looking forward to winter lol. They’re the worst here, not worst than Chicago, but close. I wish we could go to Fall and then skip over winter and go straight to Spring. That would be nice ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of Chicago, I really want to take Mirhad when it’s SUPER cold like in the winter so he can see how I felt a couple years ago when I went with my family hahaahah. Plus I kind of miss Chicago, but I only miss it in the summer. Winter is brutal there. If I lived there, I would not leave my house, even for work lol.

I still need to find a song to use for my Dallas video, it’s so hard choosing something. I just want to show the finished video to Mirhad, it’s my first one I ever made and it’s probably shitty, but who cares. I think I’m going to research how to make good vlog videos and stuff like that so I can start uploading to Youtube finally.

So I go back and forth with having an Instagram for my blog, I feel like I could possibly get more traffic that way and more readers, but every time I do make one, I end up deleting it for some reason. Don’t know why, I’ll try again!ย 

But yeah, that’s all for now. I’ll probably end up making an Instagram and link it to my homepage. See ya later! 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
