Goodbye November, Hello December

Happy December everyone! It is almost 2018. For me, this is the time of the year that most people start to look at their goals and re-evaluate what they have accomplished and what their new goals will be, myself included. I am very excited for snow and hopefully, by the start of the new year, snow will start to hit the Colorado area. Alex and I are also celebrating our 1 2 3 4 5…

My First Pumpkin Patch!

World Market blouse | Boots (similar here) | Necklace (similar here) | Express Jeans (similar here) A DAY AT THE PATCH Growing up in California, along the coast, the closest to a pumpkin patch was picking pumpkins out of a bucket, already sorted out by color and kind.

Goodbye October, Hello November!

Hi there! We are in November guys! I want to start a monthly series where I recap the previous months and share 2 goals I have for the upcoming month. I tend to lose sight of what I have planned for myself and I think this will be a good kick up the butt! October went oddly fast for me! It was kinda one of those months were I feel like a lot of stuff…

Matcha Powder: 3 Different Ways to Use It Today

Matcha powder is a newfound love of mine. For someone who does not like a lot of caffeine, I find matcha to be a great option. One thing that I love about matcha is that you can use it in so many different kinds of ways. I started out by using it in cooking, but have slowly started to expand my range of what I use it for.

My 5 Struggles with Blogging + Blog Relaunch

I started this blog about 1 year ago. After recently getting an email to re-renew, it hit me how complex and extensive blogging can be and how I have slacked greatly. Before re-renewing, I sat down and thought about if this is something I really wanted to do (something I should have done before I started). As I am writing this post, I’m realizing how good it feels to be back in it. I thought…

New Years Goals 2017!

It’s that time of the year for New Year’s Resolutions, or what I like to call New Year’s Goals. Can you believe it is almost 2017?!

How to Sleep Better and Wake Up Well Rested

Sleep: something we all uniquely do. I have always been that kind of person who hits the sheets and is out. I rarely wake up and am out till the morning. With that being said, there are also times where I cannot sleep. I also sleep next to someone, (aka Alex) who has trouble going to sleep sometimes. Therefore, I have created some methods to help not only him and I but any of you as well.…

Why I love Thrift Shopping

I love thrift shopping. In fact, I do not even have to shop, just going to a thrift store and looking around is fun enough for me. Thrift stores are like treasure hunts. You walk in and you never know what you are going to find. There have been times where I have walked into a thrift store and found items that are worth hundreds of dollars or items that I can take home with…

Thoughts on Turning Negatives into Positives

As I am sitting in a hair salon waiting for my haircut thoughts ponder through my mind. Living in the Silicon Valley, it is customary to wait for everything. I have found that coming from a small town to a big city with a million people, I miss the small town vibes. As I have one more year in this big city before I finish school and move to wherever in the nation Alex and…

3 Easy Ways to Start Living More Minimal

  Hello and welcome to my first post on this blog! I am excited to write this post because minimalism is something that I truly enjoy and has changed my life for the better. Minimalism has no clear-cut definition. And it shouldn’t either. The general rule of thumb for most minimalists is to live with only the essentials and try not to collect excess. Not only can this lifestyle change the way you shop, but it…
