Happy D E C E M B E R everybody!!! Ahhhh I can’t believe we’re already here! The last month of the year!! And another one of my favorite months lol. Okay so you’re probably wondering what the heck “Vlogmas” is, I have youtubers that I love to watch and most of them do this thing called Vlogmas every year in the month of December. You basically Vlog every single day up until Christmas day. I love watching vlogs, so I thought it would be fun for myself to attempt it! I will say my editing… not the best, but its fun! Hopefully towards the end my editing skills are a little better lol. Vlogging makes you want to actually go out and do fun things and since I have some stuff planned for this month I figured hey why not. Im an awkward person so they might be cringy to watch and have a laugh! Plus you get to see a different side of me. The side that isn’t posing for pictures and writing behind a computer screen. Now if you follow me on instagram or snapchat (which you should) then you see that side of me a little bit. Vlogs are everyday life! I hope to continue Vlogging for next year! Who knows, we’ll see lol. Make sure you subscribe to my youtube channel to see all these vlogs! I haven’t decided if I should post them everyday on here or just keep it over on my youtube channel, let me know what you think!! Love you all, I can’t wait to share all the ideas I have for posts this month! But for now enjoy Day 1 of my Vlogmas!! ↓↓
High School, a place where it’s the “best years of your life” for most or for some it’s not. A place where you start “finding yourself”, again for most it is and for most it’s not. Now I’m not going to sit here and say I had the worst time ever but I didn’t have the best time either. When people ask me if I miss high school my answer is always no. I don’t miss it. I have kept this to myself for so long because I didn’t know how to put it into words and I didn’t know if people would understand. So here it goes, I was always the quiet one and honestly I didn’t have a lot of friends. You would think being a cheerleader (yes I was one lol) i’d have plenty of friends but for me that wasn’t the case. I had maybe 1 or 2 friends I would always talk to and hang out with at school. I never had that big group of friends. Thinking back to it now its crazy. I would come home and just feel sad and depressed. I would sit there and think why don’t people like me? Why am I the loner? Why don’t I have friends like my brothers? They always had a big group of friends and I envied that SO much. I never went to parties or was social. Not until my senior year, I wasn’t a cheerleader anymore so I didn’t have that. My one friend I was close to moved. I had a boyfriend this year so I had that. I would hang out with his group of friends and go to parties only because I was basically the tag along. They were never really my friends. I didn’t know who I was. I had got bullied a couple times. I never really found myself in high school I was still trying to figure that out. Once I had graduated I felt kind of a relief. I didn’t have to think about going back to that place but I was still worried, is this how my life is going to be when I get older? No friends? No, that is not the case. But I was stuck in this slump and fell into this dark place for a couple months. I didn’t end up going to college and I didn’t have a job so I felt alone. I didn’t know what I was doing with my life. Until beauty school happened. I had went to beauty school about a year after I graduated high school. I was nervous as hell. I didn’t think I would make any friends because thats how it was in high school but I was wrong. Going to beauty school was probably the best decision I had made for myself. I met some amazing people there. We were all there for the same reason so it was nice too finally talk to people who understand you. It was nice to finally have people to hang out with and they actually enjoyed your company. But as I had said I didn’t realize what I was going through back in my high school days until about a year ago. Who I was then is not who I am now. I have definitely become a better version of myself. I let go of high school friendships I had thought cared about me but I was wrong. I have the most amazing group of friends right now in my life. Whether they are co workers, my friends that have been with me through thick and thin and those who I have just become close with in the last couple years. YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE. It is so nice to have people who get you. People that are easy to talk to and I can be myself around and have a good laugh with. I don’t open myself up to a lot of people but I have found those who I can. They are all just as crazy as me and I love it lol. You live, learn and grow every single day. If you or someone you know is going through the same thing right now just know it ALWAYS gets better. I feel like I am in a good place right now, yeah I have my days but who doesn’t? We’re all human. Find your passion and do something you love because it can open so any doors. The older you get the more aware you become and the more you know what your worth and who you want in your life. Its okay to be that person who doesn’t have those high school “friends”. Make friends with people who actually care about you and enjoy your company. I don’t know if any of this had made any sense and I don’t know how many of you will understand and I didn’t make this post for anyone to feel “sorry” for me. I want people to know that you are not alone.
Hello Hello Hello beautiful people!! Long time no see lol. Lets just all ignore the fact that I have been MIA okay!? I do apologize but here is a new post for you all today! About a week ago I got the time off of work and spent my weekend in Huntington Beach, which was so relaxing. I had planned on taking a ton more pictures during this trip for this blog post but I got so caught up with enjoying my time with family, but I did get a few pictures here and there. I have never stayed out in Huntington before so it was quite the experience and omg the hotel we stayed in was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and so modern. I was very lucky. I titled this post GOODBYE SUMMER because hello we are in S E P T E M B E R already!!!! Which means fall is here obviously! So enjoy this little post and get ready for some F A L L post coming up(;
Outfit Details and Links
There was a little strip mall outside of the hotel we stayed in so of course we had to look around. The outfit above is what I wore that day, cute and comfortable.. my go to haha. There was a lot of little stores there and a bunch of food places to choose from!
Outfit Details and Links
PS. I also never bothered to do my hair all weekend so don’t mind how frizzy my hair looks in all of my pictures lol.
There was a mini winery inside of the hotel, like who has that?? Lol, we didn’t have time to go to it but I had to take a picture.
Now it takes a lot for me to post this picture of myself in my bikini on here but its all about C O N F I D E N C E people!!! So the whole weekend we were there it was overcast but of course the last day we had there it was nice and sunny lol. So my mom and I had to take advantage and lay out on the beach for a little, now just for being out in the sun for only 1 hour I got a gnarly sun burn cause Im so pale hahah. But thats okay. A much needed get away and I enjoyed every moment of it.
Bathing suit is from Forever21 but I couldn’t find the link):
I am always posting on my Instagram and Snapchat stories so if you ever want to see the behind the scenes and some embarrassing pictures then you should follow me, the links are on the homepage!!
So if you don’t already know there are some walls in LA that are very well known for taking pictures with for that perfect Instagram post, and I am one of those basic people who have done it! I mean it makes you look “cool” and “trendy”…kinda lol. Every time I go up to LA I always see TONS of people doing it. So it doesn’t really make you feel awkward which I love because I do get shy sometimes, taking a picture in public. Im not some model who knows what they’re doing while posing for a picture. Im an awkward bean haha. But it’s cool to not feel judged while going to these spots. I only share a few places I have been to but I know there are hundreds of other A R T around in LA. I’ll share where they are too so if you ever go up there you can check it out!
The Paul Smith store aka the “Pink Wall”
This spot is located on MELROSE. I think this is the most popular one because every time I go here there is always so many people! It is actually a real store to. Very expensive but hey its LA haha. Its a pink wall I mean there really isn’t much to say about it besides the fact that its PINK and cute.
“Made In LA” wall
Not really made in LA but again its a cool! This wall is also on MELROSE, I think its really close to the pink wall. Honestly if you just type in “Made in LA wall” on your MAPS on your phone it literally pops up which I think is so funny. This spot was a little less crowded. Even though it is a very popular spot I think people tend to forget about it but Im okay with that! Lol
The “LA WINGS”
The VERY popular LA wings. Im pretty sure these are in every part of LA. The artist Colette Miller is the one behind all of them. They are so cool and before I started taking trips to LA they were the main thing I always saw on Instagram or Tumblr. So of course I had to get my picture with one of them haha.
All White Brick wall and Leaf walls
I know it sounds silly and Im 100% positive you can find spots like this anywhere but for some reason I only take pictures in front of one of these areas when I’m in LA! Don’t ask why I know I’m weird but whatever haha. I just really like the way they look! Im very grateful to have friends that will take a day to come down to LA with me and do these kinds of things. Idk I just think its fun and if I’m getting “Instagram worthy” pictures out of it then its a win! Plus its fun to show it in a BLOG post for you guys! Hope you guys enjoyed this one!
Back at the end of June it was my moms birthday, so I decided to treat her to a day at the winery in Temecula. There are so many in wine country I wouldn’t be able to tell you how many there are! If you are a wine lover or even if you aren’t I think going wine tasting is a great way to spend a day. The scenery is so beautiful and of course the drinks are great. I enjoyed seeing my mom have a smile on her face and enjoy her day. Feeling relaxed and not having to worry about anything and enjoying yourself, I think is what we should all do once in awhile. We all deserve it! Enjoy this short little post and hey let me know what you like to do to make yourself feel relaxed?!
First stop was South Coast. I usually always go to this one first every time I go to the winery. The people are always sweet and they have really good wine to choose from. Im more of a “sweet” wine person and they have a lot of good options! Every single Winery has a beautiful view to enjoy.
Miramonte was the other one we ended up at after South Coast. I have never been to this one. It was really nice and mostly everything was outdoors, which the day we went the weather was so nice, it was perfect. The wine options were good and the glasses were much larger so that was cool hahah. I will definitely be coming back to this one!
