So I was officially the winner of a Chanel Giveaway thanks to wordsnpaint . I never win anything so I was beyond excited to receive these goodies. The goody box consisted facial products and a cool neutral toned mascara. I wore the mascara over the weekend and immediately fell in love with it. Thanks again Joy! This has definitely put me in the giveaway spirit..stay tuned.

SOLO DOLO BUCKET LIST

0a639a1123c1afde0430c5db3bb71780                      I feel like the older I get, the more my life seems so repetitive. I wake up at the same time every morning. I get to work around the same time every morning. I do the same thing, the same way EVERYDAY in my work routine. I have begun to workout on a regular basis, which put a little excitement in my daily routine (sad at the excitement part, but true). I go home, cook dinner (definitely not every night, salads are my best friend), do homework, either watch television or read, have a glass of wine and I’m out like a light! What happened to the days of my life where I was so outgoing and active?

Has this meme I stole off of Pinterest just justified that I am officially a 28 year old boring fart? Boredom for me is at an all time high. There are so many things to do, so many places to go, and so many things to see. So what’s my problem? Me, I am my problem. When going out and having fun, I automatically associate it with friends. If I am so damn bored and complaining about it like a child, what will I do about it?

I will start to enjoy myself solo dolo. I love my friends but they aren’t always available or into the things I’m into so why not do things solo for a change. This summer, I have decided to make myself a “Solo-dolo Bucket List”. A list of things to do whenever this newly found boredom strikes. This is gonna be a pretty sick wave to follow as I have never done anything like this before. Well here’s a short list of things I will be doing this summer that I have never done alone before. (DISCLAIMER!!!! This post has absolutely nothing to do with loneliness because I am far from lonely, it has everything to do with experience!) Just thought I’d throw that out there.

  1. Go to the movies alone.
  2. Dress up formally and treat myself to a fancy dinner.
  3. Travel alone for a weekend.
  4. Complete a DIY project.
  5. Enjoy a SPA day.
  6. Go somewhere and people watch.
  7. Drive around, find, and eat at a restaurant I’ve never been to.
  8. Have a picnic at the park
  9. Go to Happy Hour
  10. Go to a museum

I will try and document my entire “solo dolo” journey so stay tuned!

PERFECT COLOR, PERFECT FIT

IMG_0953IMG_0947IMG_0963So let me tell you about this simple yet bright, super cute dress that I found. It is very rare that I will go to a shopping mall because there are always too many people and it takes me forever to find something that I like. I am a loyal and dedicated online shopper. Well, I just so happened to go to a shopping mall to help my sister look for a birthday outfit. I stumbled upon this dress in Charlotte Russe hanging on a clearance rack for $20. Mind you, the dress is a size small. Usually, I can barely even fit one leg or even my head into a small anything. I said what they hey, this is too cute not to at least try on. It fit! The clouds above opened and God shined his light on me in that fitting room. It was a match made in heaven. So yeah, I wore it to a wedding this past weekend and loved it. It doesn’t take $100 to find and rock cute fashion.

Dress: $20 (Charlotte Russe)

Clutch: $5 (Thrift Store)

Shoes: $25 (GoJane)

Perfect!C360_2016-05-05-22-06-42-914C360_2016-05-10-10-05-33-237C360_2016-05-10-10-05-01-541C360_2016-05-10-10-04-12-370DETAILS…I loved my gold tattoos as the one I have placed on my collar bone.

I wish I could have captured a picture of all of my looks but honestly and sadly to say, blogging was one of the last  things on my mind with everything else going on. I ‘ll do better next time. That is a promise!

CANCUN, MEXICO

IMG_4961My trip to Cancun can be summed up in two words, a “beautiful disaster”. Let me explain…so coming to this trip I previously knew two out of the four girls. I love meeting new people but as any normal person would be, I was a little nervous living with two complete strangers for an entire week. Well let me tell you, I would not have chosen any other group of girls to be on this  trip with. The universe just seemed to form a connection between all of us and I felt as if I had known these girls for years.

Cancun is a very beautiful place and the beaches are breath taking. We prepared an itinerary for this trip and was able to complete just about everything on it. In the midst of each excursion we seemed to face some sort of difficulties, such as going on a boat tour completely different from the one we thought we booked. I had not had that much fun in a very long time. Everything that could have been disastrous turned out to be beautiful in its own way.

Everything just seemed so bright and vibrant. The bright colors in a way overshadowed how poor of a country Mexico really is. The people were all in such good spirits and very friend and family oriented. We did not only tour the touristy part of Mexico, but some of the local parts as well. I cannot tell you how many times I thanked God while out there. Experiencing a completely different culture makes you appreciate all that you have. I will definitely work on taking things for granted after this experience.C360_2016-05-05-22-06-42-91420160504203651_IMG_0318 I had much time to relax and reflect. I will find time to do this on every trip I plan to take.C360_2016-05-05-07-57-02-824_1462645396788 Underground caves, swimming with the fishes…yup, I did that! InstaSize_0506083527C360_2016-05-04-08-09-39-171I learned so much and will cherish each and every memory!
