The other week was the first of 2017's emotional rollercoaster weeks for me. A lot of ups and downs in one week, that by week's end I was in a funk that I tried (not all too successfully) to shake off and mask with a smile and laughter. I was once again reminded of how … Continue reading Lucky.
I can't believe we've already breezed through one-twelfth of 2017, and are well on our way to crushing through an already short February. This year, I'm trying to be more cognizant that this blog exists for the purposes of what I ultimately wanted it to be - something that I could look back on in … Continue reading Motivations and Revelations
Sometimes it's not always easy to make time to go catch up with friends, or even muster up enough energy to do so. All the reason I cherish the quality time I spend with friends. Last week, my friends and I attended our first Paint Nite at Pinocchio's in Pasadena. Essentially Paint Nite is a two-hour … Continue reading Paint Nite at Pinocchio’s
2016 came and went faster than any other year of my existence. In 2016, I started a new chapter of my life that has been filled with challenge after challenge after challenge. But in more ways than one, it has been incredibly rewarding. What may come easy to others has required much more from me. … Continue reading Where did 2016 go?
It's been a hot minute since I wrote here - life can really take over sometimes. The best friend, who currently lives in Georgia, was in town this week and we went on a few adventures to catch up on lost time. Day 1 After picking her up at LAX, she had a meeting nearby whilst … Continue reading Adventures with the Best Friend
A few weeks ago, my friends and I ventured out to Downtown Los Angeles to take advantage of Free Museum Day in Southern California. We headed out to mainly visit the California ScienCenter (which is apparently free every day anyway) and the Space Shuttle Endeavour. I haven't been to the ScienCenter in almost 20 years. … Continue reading Free Museum Day in Southern California
As you know, I spent New Year's Day in Las Vegas. After spending hours in the dry, cold streets of Las Vegas my lips were getting super dry and chapped. It's such a pain in the butt to keep pulling out my EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint when you're all bundled up. So what I … Continue reading First Big Thrill of 2016
I've never been the best at saving money, but then again I'm pretty frugal. I won't spend a ton of money on something I can get at a discount. A few days ago I saw on Instagram a couple of different challenges in order to save money this 2016. The one I decided to take … Continue reading Penny A Day Savings Challenge
I can't believe we're already in the third week of 2016. 2015 is starting to feel so far away...not much really. When we got from Vegas after New Year's Day, we headed over to Pasadena to view the floats from the Rose Parade. I haven't done that since I was in grade school, so it … Continue reading Rose Parade 2016 Showcase of Floats
After spending New Year's in Vegas a few years back, I vowed to never do New Year's there again. However, my mom wanted to get away from Los Angeles for the New Year and, of course, Vegas is always her first choice. Las Vegas on New Year's Day is not my scene whatsoever. The big … Continue reading New Year’s Day in Las Vegas, NV
