I realized lately that I hadn't been reading as much as I used to, so a week or so ago Bub and I spent an afternoon at Barnes & Noble. Now, I wasn't able to buy every book that interested me *Insert super sad face here* , but I was... Continue reading

A few days ago Bub and I decided that we wanted to go hiking. We were set on Point Mugu again when we realized we weren't quite in shape to scale that beast of a mountain, so we chose another trail closer to home. We ended up at Ocean Trails... Continue reading

As somebody who practically lives at the beach, especially during the summer, there are a few things that I like to keep in my beach bag that aren't beauty related, so I thought I'd share them with you. 1/ You Had Me At Aloha bag I actually picked this up... Continue reading

They are critically endangered and their extinction is only imminent. Save the Vaquita Day is July 11th... Continue reading

I'm a firm believer in showing gratitude for the things that we receive. I like to take a few minutes at the end of the day to write them down and so here are all of the things that I was grateful for in February. Spending time at the park... Continue reading

With the word 'Feminist' being tossed around so aggressively these days like it's the worst thing a woman can be, I like so many other women in the world will proudly admit to being one. Does that make me bad? No. Do I hate men? Quite the contrary. What I... Continue reading

Earlier this week I decided that I needed to start using my dSLR more often so I've been lugging it around with me for the past week. And I'll be honest, it's been so long that I've actually taken photos with it that I've almost forgot to take photos on... Continue reading

I know we've all seen those articles about why Starbucks baristas get your name wrong. Revenge and them being bored are usually what that whole thing gets chalked up to, but as a Starbucks barista myself, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Promise not to tell,... Continue reading

The new year has just started and maybe you're starting to organize your new bullet journal. OR you're like me and have been getting your bullet journal ready for a few weeks now. Either way. I like to have quotes in my BuJo to look at every week and so... Continue reading

Hey guys! For December I have a goal of working out at least twice a week. It doesn't matter the workout, just as long as I'm getting in some physical activity. So far, I'm still on track. I'm still doing my Beachbody workouts, but admittedly, I don't really drink the... Continue reading

If you follow me on Instagram, which you totally SHOULD be doing, you'd know that I'm just a teensy-tiny bit obsessed, and in love with my cat Max. So I wanted to share the story of how he came about. But first, you need to know the story of Gin.... Continue reading

Dealing with mental illness is no easy feat. Not for the person who it afflicts nor for the people who love and care for said person. It is stressful, isolating, confusing, intense. The depths of one's depression can become impenetrable. Their Anxiety; uncomfortable and labyrinthine. But it is not yours... Continue reading

So if you didn't know. I've gotten back onto the fitness horse, which is a good thing, I suppose. Back in 2014, I used to be a Beachbody "coach". I put it in parenthesis because I really only did it for the discounts. For the last year or so there... Continue reading

Drinking protein shakes are hard for me especially because I'm just not used to drinking them, but since starting my Beachbody challenge yesterday, I've made it a goal to get used to having them every day. It's going to be difficult, honestly. But I've been thinking about recipes and how... Continue reading

Good Morning Babes! Well we pretty much know that I came back from a MUCH needed vacation, not too long away. I went back to Mazatlan, as I love to do but this time ended up staying at a different hotel than I normally do. I usually stay at the... Continue reading

New Things is a series that's self-explanatory. Since I firmly believe in consciously trying to live outside my comfort zone, I try to do a few new-to-me things each month. They may be something big, or they may be small. Either way, I do it in an effort to inspire... Continue reading

If you haven't noticed my Instagram account by now, you know that I love to swim. I particularly love to do what I call, "Otter around". Essentially, it's just laying in the pool and floating around, you know, like an otter. But being in chlorine 5 days a week can... Continue reading

So as most of you know, (because honestly I've been talking about it for a while) I've been trying to rebrand this blog. For a long time, nothing was happening on the back end because I was trying to figure out which direction I wanted to go in, but now... Continue reading

Hey there, Bears! 1.The last time I was around these parts I was telling you about how my laptop had pretty much given up. Well, I took it to one of Bub's professors. He pretty much told me that it was a shell for electronics parts. All my files on... Continue reading

Yes I know it's March already but February just snuck past me without me even realizing it so I thought I'd let you know what was going on around here. Wanting: to cry because my Mac crashed on me and now I need to take it in for repairs. Stressing:... Continue reading
