Turning 26 | I'm Not Sure What I Want In Life

Tuesday, July 31, 2018



This is the first time in my life that I can honestly say I don't know what I want. I am always the type of person to write down all of my goals and over time accomplish them. That's my motto, set a goal and achieve it. When I decided to get braces, when I decided I wanted a certain career with a certain job title. Those are all things I had planned for so long.

Usually around my birthday I have a lit of goals I'm working on and I don't have one. It seems like I'm just stuck. I'm not exactly set on what I want in life. It's crazy to think I'm turning 26, to some that might not be a big deal, but to me it is.

I am very happy and excited for my birthday but not like years in the past. This just feels different like another day is going to happen. Is that how it feels when you get older. I hope not because this is just such a weird thing for me.

I've tried multiple times of reading different books and trying to sit down and create a goal list but nothing comes to mind. I may think of a few and then 5 minutes later throw the paper out.

So with all that being said. I don't know what I want in life right now. There's nothing that is making me excited or happy. On top of all of that, I don't know what I want to do about blogging.

Blogging to me was always a fun hobby I did on the weekends. Finding fun recipes and doing simple lifestyle post made me so happy and fulfilled. But as of now I'm just not satisfied with my content or blogging in general. I love it don't get me wrong. I just don't know what to write about or what people are interested in and It's just a constant battle with what do I want to do.

If anyone is going through the same thing, maybe you have some tips on feeling revived again. For now I will just be taking a break and trying to figure out what it is that I want. Then maybe that will get some creative juices flowing.

My Love/Hate Relationship With Technology

Friday, July 27, 2018






I was recently asked the question will I be upgrading my phone. And my first response was NO! before I could even think about it the answer was no. That question had me thinking of all the reasons I love technology and also why I hate it. I use my I Phone for normal everyday phone use. Work calls, personal call (Mostly texts because I'm not a fan of phone conversations) Social media and emails.

I have a love/ hate relationship with technology because I know of all the good it does and how convenient it is. I can transfer money between accounts on bank apps. I can quickly respond to emails and have 24/7 access to people, friends etc. Social media in itself can be full time job for some people. Technology has come so far and has advanced so much, it's hard not to love it and be around it all the time. It has become a permanent part in our lives. Checking your phone when you wake up before checking on your family is a normal in our society. And I'm not counting myself out of it. Just and observation.

But on the opposite side It is so impersonal. I just notice the lack of real life communication because of technology. Everything is so online based and we have access to peoples personal lives 24/7 and I don't think that's healthy.

A personal life should be just that personal. If you choose to have a blog and share parts of your home, life, etc then that's Great! I'm all for it, but seeing all the gossip blogs and just junk is just ridiculous.

I love social media and all the wonders of technology but I do miss the personal relationships and skills that were developed without it.

Surviving The Blazing Summer | Arizona Summer Guide

Tuesday, July 10, 2018



Summer time is here and ready to stay. Summers in Arizona can be harsh,with the dry air the the constant beaming sun and lets not forget the 100 degree weather. I've lived in Arizona my entire life so I'm use to preparing for the summer. I actually remember buying summer clothes and flip flops and pool supplies and being just super excited as a child when summer came around. Summer meant no school and swimming all day, but as an adult there's so many things you have to prepare for yourself. So here's a guide to surviving summer! Hope you enjoy



Everyday Tips




-Overcast Days Are Still Hot Sometime we think that because the clouds are over the city, that means you can walk around bare foot and just relax outside. Wrong! The heat in Arizona is so hot that even on a cloudy day you can still get blisters and burn your feet. If the sun was 115 one day and overcast the next, the ground is still hot so be careful.


-Wear Breathable Clothing Cotton and breathable clothing can help with not overheating in the summer. Summer dresses and light linen cloths are comfortable and prefect for the summer. I've been in the dress mood lately and they are

-Stainless Steel Water Bottle w/ Ice Water is an essential part of living but definitely an essential part of the summer. Drink as much water as you can, your body will love you for it. I like using a stainless steel water bottle and adding ice t help it stay colder long and I can always add more water and the ice will still be there. So drink up! Takeya Stainless Steel Water Bottle


-Baby Wipes On those long days when your out and shopping, or at the park. Baby wipes help give your skin a refresh after you have been sweating all day. I don't like feeling sticky after I sweat so keeping a good bag of baby wipes keeps you clean and refreshed.

-A Fan (Big Or Small) Fans in a hot place like Arizona are much needed, whether they are a small desk fan or a large ceiling fan. They even have little phone fans that attached to your iPhone, how cool is that! I can bring this little fan with me everywhere.

-Protect those sweat stains with a Panty Liner If your prone to sweat stains under your arm pits, opt for placing a panty liner in your arm pits with the cotton side facing your arm pit to soak up the sweat and they sticky side on your shirt. This will help eliminate those embarrassing sweat stains that always happen. Especially when you love and wear gray.

-Water Proof Mascara No one likes running mascara or if your start sweating and wipe your face you mascara starts to smear. A good water proof mascara give you the pretty awake eyelashes you want without the running black makeup


-Cold Rose Water Spray I like to place all natural rose water in the fridge and use it on my face before I leave the house. Its refreshing and also good for your skin.You can use it in a spray bottle or just a regular face pad. I prefer using a small spray bottle.







Places To Visit


Hotels/ Resort Stays
Having a mini stay cation is always fun and super affordable here in the summer. You can find great deals on expedia or hotels.com if your looking to have a relaxing day at spa or just in a nice resort with room service. On the plus side most of them have pools.

Sedona
The perfect place to go to get away from the big city and spend some time with nature and red rocks, how cool is that, red rocks. I've lived in Arizona my entire life and I'm always so amazed by it.

Canon Lake
Going on a lake trip is fun! You can go swimming, boating, jet skiing. The most important part is spending time with your family and eating.

Arizona Museum Of Natural History
Any museum is a great summer idea. It's both educational and it has A/C. Some much history to catch up on so get started.

Scottsdale Fashion Square
Just want a simple place to escape the heat, find a mall and explore the shops. Scottsdale Fashion Square has many different shops to explore while still staying cool and great eating too.

Your local coffee shop
I don't know about you but I'm so in love with coffee. Iced coffee in the summer is just perfect. If you like energy drinks dutch bros coffee has some amazing varieties of flavors
