Hey guys, it's been awhile

If you've been here awhile you know how I'm all about creating new weekly update things. So I'm going to try to start posting every week on certain days. Just to get myself back in the routine of posting and writing again.

It's been awhile, huh? I can't tell you why I've been away cause I honestly don't know. Motherhood has taken a lot of my time and brain space. And for some reason lock down has made me lose track of days and time. It's been weird ya'll. 

I sort of want to change the direction of this blog; or rather, change it back. This started as a lifestyle blog for me. A place for me to share my loves, my life and anything and everything in-between without feeling like I had to fit one certain niche. And somewhere along the way I ended up doing just that. My IG is filled with product shots and talks about makeup and candles which is fine. I love makeup and candles but I also want to start including more of me here. And I feel like I say that a lot.

What I won't be including however is things about mental health; I have a different blog for that. And I won't be diving too much into motherhood because I also have a different blog for that. But I will try my best to talk about Tums more.

Recap 2020; March

I honestly don't know why I don't update this blog as often anymore considering I still update the IG as frequently as I can.

March has been a challenge for all of us. With the quarantine's, the lock down's, the businesses closing and the entire media trying to scare the shit out of us into staying home -- which I'm not saying we shouldn't stay home, I definitely think we should -- but I'm just tired of all the scary negative news every time I open a browser or an app. It doesn't help my mom continuesly talks about the Corona every chance she gets. Every single day. No matter what else we're talking about.

So March has been a lot of staying home; which honestly, as a SAHM I already stay home every single day but Saturday on a regular basis. So. Basically it's been a non adventure on Saturday month.

Some cool things DID happen though! This stay at home thing has made me epically fail at my financial health goal -- but it's okay! Cause those trips are cancelled anyway! I still have time to re-save up that money lmao. I hate myself, why am I like dis lmao.

Recap 2020; January

Anyone else feel like January is like... the trial version of the New Year Resolutions? We get so hyped up on our goals and super inspired... yet next thing we know it's mid January and we feel like epic failures for not "staying on track".

I know I struggled A LOT with this, especially since I'm so fixated on doing the things I didn't get to do in 2019 because of all the postpartum depression and general depression that happened and robbed me of my time. But I'm trying really hard to remind myself that any step forward is still a step forward. No matter how many things I do or don't tick off my "to-do" list for that day/week/month.

I have to remind myself that this is a progress, not a destination.

Hello 2020 ✨

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?

Pregnancy caught up with me and then so did postpartum depression. And then I lost my dad. So blogging and social media took a huge back burner in 2019.

I obviously didn’t get to post all the recap posts I wanted to do so I’ll be doing that through out January.

Most of my resolutions this year have to do with wellness so that’s what I picked for my {onelittleword} this year.

A few other resolutions include;
↠ Finish school
↠ Create a space for PPD
↠ Cook more
↠ Financial health
↠ Purchase with purpose
↠ Read 20 books
↠ Project pan 
↠ Work on myself — internally 
↠ Ignore drama + people’s opinions
↠ Be So confident in my own perception of myself that I won’t believe anything less
↠ Eat better
↠ Create content
↠ Become a Disney content creator
↠ Write reviews
↠ Learn Spanish
↠ Take steps to the 3yr plan everyday 
↠ Get back to meditation
↠ Get back to Yoga
↠ Travel 3 times
↠ Do one big act of self care every month

I’m hoping to stop by more often, especially with me wanting to go back to writing reviews.

Here’s to a productive and healthy 2020 ✨!

Life | Valentines Day Gifts 2019

Early on in our relationship I made it a point to tell Bubba I wanted to be asked to be his Valentine; I didn't want him to assume that just because we were dating he didn't have to ask.

I don't know why I have this thing besides that I've never really been asked to BE someone's Valentine before. Hell I never really even HAD a Valentine's Day until Bubba came along. I use to use Valentine's Day as a day to spoil myself. My mom would get me gifts every since I was little and flowers every year though so I never really cared if I had a Valentine or not.

Even in the 11 years I was previously married we never really celebrated Valentine's Day. I did have a self tradition of having a Valentine's Day outfit. I figured if I wasn't gonna celebrate it, I might as well wear something nice that day. Plus pink is one of my favorite colors.

This year I randomly came out to the kitchen and saw this set up and Bubba asked me for a third time to be his Valentine ♡.
