Travel: Kennedy Space Center

We took my dad to the Kennedy Space Center the week before father's day, and I'm glad we did because he loved it. My family and I have been wanting to travel for a while now, even if it was for just a weekend, and I thought "where would my dad really enjoy himself?" Of course, I immediately thought about NASA and how much he loves watching everything space! So it was perfect. We went away for the weekend and went to the Space Center for a day. It's true when they say that you can't go through everything in a day, but from what we saw, it was pretty great. Besides the fact that it was raining there were places to hide and explore for hours.

Hey Guys, Sorry I've been lost. I needed some time for myself and away from blogging for a bit. I had a scare last night while driving and I'm still pretty shaken up about it. I'm okay but my car needs to be fixed a bit. Just when things were starting to be okay, something out of the blue happens. Obviously you can't help it. Things happened that way it was supposed to happen, and it sucks because it adds on to things that need to be paid or fixed, but that's life. So now I'm focused on getting my classes paid and fixing my car. Staying positive and hoping for the best.

I promise to get back to blogging. Slowly but surely. Scouts honor. I just need to get my priorities straightened out. Thanks for holding on.

Oh, and Happy 4th of July! I hope you're enjoying it with your family and friends wherever you are! Please stay safe, and remember to protect your pets from fireworks.

Mood Board: June

I have been feeling pretty down lately, so I was actually surprised that I found myself making a playlist yesterday and now this month's mood board. I guess all I need to distract myself for a couple of hours is to create. I love the colors in this mood board, it just screams fun. At least for me. From soft palettes to darker ones, this pretty much sums up my mood right now. I love it.

Playlist: June 2017

I lied. Well not really, but I did say that I was going to make two playlists for the month of May since I did not do one for April. WELL, I only did one for May. I didn't realize how busy I was last month, but nonetheless here is JUNE's Playlist.

It's almost time for the summer and these are the current tunes I'm currently into. It's crazy that One Direction aren't together anymore and that each member is out with their own style of music. I'm not that into One Direction but I'm definitely into each of the guys different music journey if you want to call it that. Also, Haim is back...FINALLY! I can't wait to listen to their new album. It's long overdue. I hope these songs get you in the mood for summer, because it certainly is working for me. Enjoy!

TV: May Mood Board

I realized that I never actually made a TV Mood Board as I was cleaning out my blog. The travesty. In all honesty, I haven't watched much television since Parks and Recreation ended, and Game of Thrones comes once a year. That's why I stick to Netflix. I wait until the seasons are over and binge-watch shows, but yes, occasionally I will watch a show weekly, especially if it's Game of Thrones. So ta-da, here is my first TV Mood Board. I did brainstorm a little, asking myself which shows I actually enjoyed and I came up with the following: 13 Reasons Why, Bates Motel, Big Little Lies, Riverdale. With the exception of Bates Motel, the other three are relatively new and/or a limited series. They all have a couple of things in common though like death, mental issues, and murder mystery. All pretty enjoyable to watch.

Monday

Hello lovelies. Happy Monday, or not so happy Monday since it's the beginning of the work week. To each their own. How was your weekend? I spent mine with my sister, just hanging out and treating ourselves a bit. We went to this ice cream shop called Walls Old Fashion Ice Cream, and it was nice hanging out. The ice cream really did hit the spot for my sweet craving yesterday. Besides treating ourselves, we have been good about going to the gym, like today. I feel like it's finally sticking and I'm pretty committed so I'm happy about that.





There has been a lot on my mind lately, and I have not been writing them down even though I should. Random thoughts and ideas here and there. Too much thinking, but yeah the gym helps. I'm looking into writing again, even if it's just for myself. So I've been researching resources to help with staying focus. Any I should look into?

Well, I'm off to research. Have a great day!

Playlist: May 2017

I finally did it guys. I made a playlist again! I know there wasn't one in April, but I decided to make two this month to make it up. Here is the part one of this month's playlist. Honestly, I hit up Spotify and browsed new music. I have Apple Music, but sometimes it's harder to find music and artists I like there unlike Spotify where I can just easily access random artists and listen to them to see if I like them. Just me? I don't know, but I made this playlist with songs I'm currently listening to non-stop. Of course my girl Lana Del Rey is in it. What kind of playlist would it be without her? Especially when waiting for the summer. That's another factor in this playlist: SUMMER. Hope these songs get you in the mood and give you awesome vibes while we wait for summer!

Tuesday

Guys, I've been in such a funk and I want to blame it on whatever retrograde we are in. Seriously. I keep telling myself I'm going to be active today and hit the gym and as soon as I came home from work I got myself some tuna and crackers and called it a day. Then I was going to give myself a mani and pedi but I ended up taking a hot shower instead and now I'm just blogging. When is this retrograde leaving?! I guess I'm going to channel my funk into some kind of creativity, like finalizing the playlist. I hope it sticks!

Did you guys see the MET Gala? Any favorites? I think once again, hands down Rihanna was best dressed followed by Zendaya, Ruth Negga and Zoe Kravitz. I found it kind of boring this year, I think everyone played it too safe once again. That's why these girls were my favorite.


Okay, I'm off to making this playlist. Talk to you soon!

Mood Board: May

It's the first of May! Can you believe it? We are nearing the half-way point of the year, how crazy is that? Crazy. I'm currently enjoying my summer-free-from-school vacation. I still have work, but I have downtime now to relax, binge-watch Netflix shows, work out and freaking travel. My family and I decided to go to Cape Canaveral some time in June as a family trip. It's much needed. So in a way this mood board is inspired by beauty travel inspo, and the color palettes I'm currently liking right now. SO MUCH TO DO, I'M SO EXCITED!

Monday

How's it going? I know, another work week, but it's another day to be grateful for. I'm currently making this month's mood board and looking for songs for the first half of the month's playlist (since I didn't do one for April), so I'll keep today's intro short.

Not much going on right now, just dealing with on/off rain, which is much needed. Regardless, it's freaking hot! I can't wait to spend my summer at the beach, I'm looking a little pale. Anywho, I went to Portofino on Saturday, which I never been to, and it was pretty good. It was a friend's Graduation day so we had a late dinner.



Yesterday, my sister and I explored a bit. We live near farmlands, so we usually like to take drives for a bit to destress. Then we went to Target and I made these awesome buys. I've been wanting to read The Girls for the longest, and The Last of August is the sequel to A Study In Charlotte, which I posted about last week. I also mentioned that my friend Steph and I are starting a book club, which I'm really excited about. Wine, coffee and books! Not all in the same order. So we are starting with The Girls.


Anyway, this was me earlier. Listen, I love stripes. I live for stripes. I have a lot of stripes in my closet, but these past two semesters have been all about basic colors. And flannel. But since summer is right around the corner, I'm bringing my stripes back. I'm also loosing weight, so I'm feeling myself.


I'm off to finish the mood board. I'm also thinking of cleaning out my blog and have a semi-fresh start. Oh...tonight's the MET Gala, can't wait to see the dresses. Talk to you soon and happy Monday!
