First Few Months Back in Florida

*** I originally drafted this post a few weeks ago and holy shit y'all, I just realized I moved THREE months ago!! Time has honestly flown by wow omg. Anyways, back to the blog post. ***

Back in May, I made the trek back to the place I now call home - Orlando. In the last few months, I've honestly never been so happy and for the first time in a long time, I know I'm where I'm meant to be. I found such a great group of girlfriends, have a pretty cool job (and another that will be announced soon!!!), and even found myself a wonderful man.

Want to know something absolutely crazy? I've been more voluntarily social in the past few months than I have been for the past few years. I go to brunch with my bffs almost weekly, go on dates with my boyfriend often, and am often meeting new galpals! It's honestly so nice having plans and doing things with friends. As introverted as I am, once I'm around the right people, I'm such an extrovert where I'm obnoxious af.

People ask me if I miss Houston and overall, no I don't. But I do miss some things about Houston like my old advertising job and coworkers, Torchy's Tacos, Pure Barre Spring, and my super nice apartment. Otherwise, I don't miss it. Houston was a learning experience but the longer I was there, the worse my mental health was getting. I was straight-up miserable my last couple months there and now that I'm gone, I feel like a weight has been lifted off of me.

I've severely neglected this blog for a while and that's because I was in such a bad headspace and honestly didn't have any motivation to write. But I really do want to change that. Blogging has been one of my favorite hobbies since I was like 15 and it's crazy to think that I've been doing this for almost 10 years!!! I really want to take this more seriously and I'm glad I have a group of people to keep me accountable now.

Coming soon will be an ultimate guide to Orlando (not including the theme parks because there is honestly so much more to do here than just theme parks) that will be updated frequently as I go to new places, my favorite places at Disney once it's not so dang hot outside, maybe an apartment tour???, my beauty/skincare routines, travel guides, and maybe some outfit guides for things like dressing business casual or the cutest brunch outfits!

Also, don't forget to follow my insta to see all the fun I've been having!!

I'm Moving (Again)!

Well y'all, it's been a while. There have been so many times where I wanted to blog yet whenever I sat down to write, I never finished a draft. To be honest, I've been pretty miserable here in Houston. All I do is work, work some more, and sleep. I don't have many friends here either and I just don't belong here. Due to all of this, I decided to move again! There was a hint about this on my Instagram story the other day about how I'll miss my job when I leave Houston and some of you guys caught on and messaged me about it!

New Year's Resolutions

Hello my wonderful readers! I can't believe we are already a week into the new year! I took a little hiatus because life hasn't been the best lately and I was completely uninspired. I was looking back on my 2018 resolutions and I did not follow through with them so let's try this again. I spent a while thinking about these goals and I'm really hoping I can stick to them!

My Travel Essentials

With the holidays quickly approaching and being in a long distance relationship, I'm doing a lot of traveling in the next six weeks with four round-trip flights. Since I will be at the airport a lot due to all these flights, I thought I would write about my must-have travel essentials!

1. Blanket scarf - I don't know about y'all but I'm basically always cold so here comes the handy dandy blanket scarf! I'll be traveling up to Kansas City and Chicago where it is a lot colder than Houston so a blanket scarf is a necessity to keep me warm both in the airport and while out and about. I recently went to Target and stocked up on four new blanket scarves from their dollar section!

The Real Reason Why I Left Disney

Something I get asked often when I tell someone I used to work at Disney World is "Why did you leave Disney?" Then they continue to go on how it must have been so cool, so ~magical~, and I was probably a princess. Yeah, it was cool, it was sometimes magical, and no, I was not a princess. Truth be told, I wasn't getting the experience I needed.

My All Time Favorite Beauty Products

love makeup. It's one of my favorite things to buy and I love experimenting with new products. If you have been to my current apartment or old house in Florida, you would know that I have the Alex drawers from Ikea to hold all my beauty products. So to say that I love makeup is actually an understatement. I get asked all the time about what products I use so I decided to list my ride or die products! I plan on making a video of my current makeup routine in the near future so be on the lookout for that!

1. L'Oreal Pro Glow Foundation -Trying new foundations is sometimes a hassle because I hate figuring out what shade to buy. I've tried everything from Fenty to Lancome to drugstore brands and this is the foundation I always go back to. I have combination skin, so an oily t-zone and dry cheeks, and this foundation is perfect for me. The shade range isn't the best but I currently use the shade 202 Creamy Natural, 201 Classic Ivory when I'm super pale, and 203 Nude Beige when I'm self-tanned. I offset the extreme dewiness with a setting powder and it makes my skin look flawless!

Instagram Outfit Roundup

If you follow me on Insta, you've already seen all of these already. But as I'm trying to get back into fashion posts and get asked often where I get my clothes, I linked all my favorite outfits from the last month-ish! If the company no longer sell the items, I linked something similar.
