Blogmas 2nd: 8 Ways to Get into the Christmas Spirit


It's very rare that I have a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit, just because it's always came natural to me. 

No, really. Like I should be a Christmas child (not that I would trade my birthday or anything.)

However, I know sometimes, for others the "Holly Jolly" feels don't automatically arrive on the first day of December. It takes a little time & effort, especially if you get distracted by the thought of preparing for the big day being more of a task, rather than an enjoyable & exciting experience. But, it's completely understandable how overwhelming it all can be, because, for the third year in a row, the family Christmas party will be at my house. So I get it, trust me.

Welcome to Blogmas


Hi loves! Happy December!

Wow, it seems like it's been forever.

But here I am, back again — of course, with another blog challenge. I didn't get to finish Blogtober sadly, & I've been MIA all November because school got a little more demanding. & it's imperative that I stay on top of that. Luckily, winter break is happening & I can just focus on all things TPOL. I'm too excited.

Blogtober 21st: The Only Thing I Don't Like about Halloween


Halloween is TOTALLY my thing.

Day of birth, or not. 

There are so many reasons to love it. The decorating, the dressing up, the festivals, the movies & food. You get what I mean. However, the origin of the holiday has always been the most intriguing.

Blogtober 19th: Dream Job | Then & Now


When you're younger, people tend to love to ask, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

Like are we supposed to have our lives figured out at the age of 7? 

I don't think that's how it works.

Blogtober 18th: Fall Scents You Need


Okay, I can't be the only one who goes out of the way to change the scent of the whole house when fall arrives.

Say it's not so!

Anyway, I pretty much live in Bath & Body Works usually, & this year is no different. They always offer some amazing scents for every occasion, whether it be a holiday or a season. & I refuse to let fall pass us by without showing you the best smells to fill your home with.

I do have some absolute favorites, so this list is starting with I prefer the most!

Blogtober 14th: Twitter Friends Tag



Twitter has been such a fun & helpful platform for TPOL & for me, personally. I've met & connected with some AMAZING people on it  specifically, a small group of bloggers from all over the world.

Let me tell you just how amazing they are. 

Ready? Let's discuss.

We've all banned together to build the the best blogging community I could have ever asked for. We share ideas, tips, resources, & so much love & support. To add to our ever-growing friendships, we've even shared some of our personal lives with one another. It's a beautiful thing, honestly. I always look forward to hearing from them everyday.

Blogtober 13th: Pumpkin Carving



Ahh, sweet Saturday.

First, let me just say that I can't believe I've made it halfway through Blogtober. Time is flying & I bet it's because I'm having so much fun.

In other news, I'm currently out of town right now. Something came up, so my family & I had to take a last-minute road trip. Everything is good so far, but I don't think I was at all prepared for the major temperature change. No, really guys, it's super cold. But I'm managing, haha.

ANYWAY.

When I was younger, I used to always want to carve pumpkins for Halloween. Of course, because of the religious background that I came from, I didn't really have a chance. & even after my parents eased up with their beliefs, I still somehow never got around to doing it. But this year, I was determined to carve a pumpkin, especially since it's a part of my fall bucketlist challenge.

Blogtober 12th: DFW Fall City Guide


Being in Texas means having WAY more to explore.

There is undoubtedly always an event of some sort happening. It's part of what I love about living here. In fact, it almost feels like I'm on a permanent vacation. 

The DFW metroplex area is HUGE & the season has changed, which means fall events that the city hosts will be plentiful. Today, I'm giving you a super fun guide of things that are taking place over the next couple of weeks. I've even signed up for a few of them myself!

Blogtober 10th: A Day in the Life


Hiiii.

Now that I've been blogging for almost a year, more people are finding out about what I do. That comes with a ton of questions, which I try to answer to the best of my ability. However, I still consider myself a baby in the industry, so I only give them what I know. Some questions are really good & some are just amusing. But inquiring minds want to know. Ya know?

Blogtober 8th: Recently | New Book Alert


Have I ever mentioned that I just LOVE books? Because, I do. 

I always have. In fact, when I was younger, as far as I was concerned, my room held the best little library there was. My books & I were inseparable. One was always with me, no matter where I was. I had so many — some in just about every genre. & I’d always get so elated when I got a new one.

Blogtober 7th: Behind the Gram


Sunday.

I slept in today because yesterday, I was EXTRA busy. I was going non-stop, & was barely able to keep up. "The edge of exhaustion" is how I recall my description of what I was feeling. But I'm okay now. Well rested & ready to go some more.

ANYWAY.

I got the idea of doing this type of blog post from Hayley Paige, who got it from another blogger. It was full of humor & she let us in to see a little more of who she is, so of course I just had to do it. A lot happens behind the scenes of a photo that is hidden from everyone else. So, allow me to give you the scoop.

I MOVED TO TEXAS!!



Hi guys. What’s up? How are you?

The past few weeks have been really crazy for me. 

So much has happened & changed SO fast that it almost felt like my head was spinning. Goodness. Things have settled, though. So, I’m good. Originally, this post was going to be about EVERYTHING that has taken place, but after giving it some thought, I decided against it. Maybe somewhere down the line I’ll gradually tell you guys all about it — yes? Yes.

Summertime Realness



Hey peeps! Happy summer.

That's right, school's out. I'm free.

It's time to shift my focus. When school was in, my workload demanded pretty much all of my attention. I was sad about not being able to tend to the blog like I really wanted to, but school is important, & you gotta do what you gotta do, right?

A Girls' Night In with WEYV



Hi. Hello. What's up?

What's been going on with you guys?

For me, it's been nothing but school. I've been managing it well; however, as you can imagine, that does not mean it is completely stress-free. Luckily, as an ambassador for The Newsette I've been introduced to WEYV -- my perfect way to unwind at the end of the day.

De-Stress with Hum Nutrition




Hey, hey!

Can we talk about stress for a moment?

Being a working college student, I for one can say that I know it all too well. Stress is super overwhelming & it robs me of my energy. As if I don't have enough to deal with. NOT fun.

Valentine's Day: For the Singles




Happy Valentine's Day peeps!

Love is in the air.

Can you feel it?

Usually, when you think of Valentine's Day, the first thing that pops in your head is having someone to celebrate it with. You think of all of the couples walking around, holding hands, completely consumed by the day of love. & that's great. Really, it is.

Recently: Back to School



*cue the school bells*

It's been a while but class is back in session, guys.

First, can we just talk about how real this quote is? I mean, knowledge & education is so important, especially in this day & age. With all the advancing & evolving taking place in the work sphere, you're doing yourself a huge favor by educating yourself. & aside from that, it's just good to be in the know, you know?
