DO WHAT YOU HATE

Happy 2018!! It’s very common to hear people proclaim “do what you love”, but very rarely do people talk about doing things they hate (without complaining). Now, I’m not saying that you should go out and pursue a career you hate or order sushi when you hate seafood, I’m talking more about those mundane or pesky…

ACTUAL GOALS FOR 2018

In my last post I mentioned a few vague resolutions for the new year (live fearlessly, focus on myself, etc.), but I wanted to also lay out a few concrete goals (speak it into existence, am I right?): finish at least one round of Kayla Itsines’ BBG program read at least 50(!!) books try my…

2017 IN REVIEW

2017 has been an… interesting year to say the least. The first half of the year started out great, but the second half has been (still is?) a ferris wheel of ups and down. To quote Kylie Jenner circa 2016, this year has seriously been for “like, realizing stuff.” First off, let me go through…

EARLY WINTER HAUL

Bonjour!! I’ve been shopping a lot recently and decided to make a mini-Winter haul for the blog. This season I’ve been loving everything soft and fluffy (which you’ll see soon) and have also been loving the colors burgundy and tan. A few of the things aren’t available online but I’ve tried to link them all…

ALMOST ADULTING

(book review….sort of) I just finished reading the book Almost Adulting by Arden Rose. If you don’t know Arden, she’s an actress, a popular lifestyle guru on Youtube, and has her own podcast with her boyfriend Will. I don’t normally read Youtuber books, however, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Almost Adulting is the perfect book…

WHAT I’M THANKFUL FOR

21 HOPES FOR 21

Bonjour! I turned 21 last week which welcomed me with a whirlwind of emotions. Taylor Swift said it best – I’m still a year away from 22 but I definitely feel “happy, free, confused, and lonely at the same time”. I am excited to be 21 but even more so I’m frightened. I have no…

SUMMER OBSESSIONS 2017

Bonjour! Happy September! September is my favorite month for many reasons. Not only is it my birthday month, but I am a sucker for Fall vibes. Cooler weather, oversized cardigans, pumpkin flavored everything and holiday movies? Yes plz!! As excited as I am for Fall to start, I am a bit sad to let Summer…

I’M BACK AND LIFE IS GOOD

Bonjour! Hola! Hallo! I’m back and life is good (in case you couldn’t tell from the title). I’m a bit shocked I didn’t post in July (I honestly thought I did!!) The truth is I was feeling extremely uninspired, lazy, and unmotivated, however, today I woke up with an insane amount of energy, inspiration, and…

HAPPY HALF-NEW YEAR: NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS CHECK-UP

Happy almost-mid June! Wow, I can’t believe we are already 6 months into 2017. So far it’s been such a blur to me. This year has been great for my self-improvement and wanderlust. I visited Vegas again, went to Canada for the first time, finally fulfilled my Gossip Girl dreams and set foot in Manhattan,…
