2018 Resolutions…

It’s so hard to believe that it is already 2018! I didn’t get a chance to write my new year resolutions before Jan 1st so I decided to write them down now…better late than never right??

Here we go…

  1. Drink more water-aim for at least 100oz a day.
  2. Exercise at least 3 times a week.
  3. Accept and love myself for how I am (I have been struggling with self love for as long as I can remember)
  4. Be more positive!
  5. Care less about what people think about me.
  6. Save more money!
  7. Be more active on social media and my blog!
  8. Make more YouTube videos!
  9. Take more pictures!
  10. Stop procrastinating!

What are some of your goals for 2018?

Blogmas Day 13: Anxiety

For today’s blogmas, I wanted to share a few tips on how to deal with anxiety! I have been having on and off anxiety all day today and I cannot figure out why.

Every one of us has experienced anxiety one way or another and it’s not something fun or enjoyable… I absolutely hate it! I especially hate it more so when I have an anxiety whole at work like today!

Here are a few tips and tricks that I do while I’m having an anxiety:

  • Take deep breaths and slowly count to 20.
  • Get some fresh air.
  • Drink chamomile tea.
  • Lay down and close your eyes for a few minutes while taking deep breaths.
  • Watch funny YouTube videos.
  • Listen to relaxation music.
  • Stretch.
  • Drink some water.

These are some of the things I do to help me calm down, is there anything specific that you do to help with an anxiety attack?

  2. Eat slowly.
  3. Don’t skip breakfast.
  4. Take the stairs.
  5. Wake up early.
  6. Practice self- care.

Blogmas Day 1 

This time of the year is my absolute favorite and I cannot believe that it’s already here… How is it December again??? I feel like we just celebrated the holidays. Regardless I’m so excited that it’s December and all the holiday goodness is starting. 

I have been reading so much about blogmas and I’m so excited to participate for the first time ever this year. Blogmas is when bloggers commit to posting everyday until Christmas day…my topics for the post will vary from everyday life to holiday related. I hope you enjoy!

Lonely Weekend…

My husband got a new job a few weeks ago which I’m so happy about; however, he has to work some weekends and this weekend was the weekend that he had to work both Saturday and Sunday. The only time I got to see him was in the mornings until 1pm before he leaves; and since I didn’t have to work today I stayed up last night and waited for him and we ended up doing something that we use to do on a weekly basis at nights before he got this job.. go to IHOP. That has been our little thing to do for so many years now, we love IHOP and we especially love going there at nights. So last night I waited for him to get home almost at midnight and we drove to our favorite IHOP location and had a mini super late date.

I miss my husband like crazy though; I feel so lonely. Part of me likes it because I have more me time now but the other part of me hates it so much because I just want my best friend and the love of my life with me. I’m really hoping he doesn’t have to work next weekend so we can at least get two full days together to just enjoy ourselves and have fun.

Happy Sunday!

Happy Halloween! 

I think I may be the only odd one out when I admit what I’m about to admit… I do think like Halloween! There I said it, now please keep all your judgments to yourself 🎃.

I don’t know why but even as a little girl I never liked the whole concept of Halloween, I never enjoyed dressing up, going to people’s house and grabbing candy, which most of the time it was candy I never liked… I just never had a reason to look forward or to enjoy this particular day. I always just end up staying home and watching movies and relaxing! I plan on doing just that tonight after I get home from the gym!

What are your thoughts on Halloween? Do you have any plans? 

My First Experience with Keratin Hair Treatment!

Two weekends ago, I finally was able to do something that I have been wanting to do for a very long time… Get the keratin hair treatment! My hair is crazy after I shower; it’s fine for an hour or two if I leave it as is but then get super puffy, frizzy and uncontrollable! I have to straighten it on a daily basis and I have damaged my hair from it so much.

I found a Groupon for the keratin for only $89 here in LA and I looked up the yelp reviews on the salon and made an appointment.

I ended up getting my hair colored, cut and the treatment done all within less than 3 hours! I was able to finally wash my hair last night and oh my goodness… I’m in love! My hair is straight(90% still has a little bit of wavy at the back hair but I’m totally OK with it) soft and so not frizzy anymore! I love that I didn’t have to use the flat iron or a blow dryer to straighten my hair! I wish I had taken a before and after picture!

If you are debating whether or not to get it done, I highly recommend doing it… It’s like changing!!!

Hearst Castle!

I don’t think I have ever mentioned on here that my husband and I are trying to get into photography; so on weekends now, we tend to go somewhere and work on our skills at taking pictures and just getting more familiar with our cameras. For now we are just doing photos of nature/places/etc; we will eventually love to start taking photos of people but for now this is what we are doing. This past weekend we decided to go to a place that we love… Hearst Castle! We first went there on our 3rd year anniversary and fell in love, and decided to go back and do our engagement photos there. It is about a 3.5 hour drive from where we live so we only went for the day. We have already done most of the tours so we knew we just wanted to get up there to take pictures so we bought a tour which you have to buy in order to enter the castle, and as soon as we were in, we ditched our group haha. I want to show you a few pictures that we took; of course I will post more on our Instagram account if you would like to follow us on there for future pictures.

Have you ever been to Hearst Castle? What was your experience like?

Current Book I’m Reading

51542020

I actually haven’t started reading this book yet, but I just bought it a few days ago and I’m so excited to start reading it. I have been a Gilmore Girl fan for so many years now and I to this day still watch the show on Netflix! I absolutely adore Lauren Graham and her character Lorelai Gilmore…shes so funny, sweet caring and I love the relationship she has with her daughter! I so wish my mom and I had that type of relationship…sadly we don’t!

 

Let me know how you like this book!
