Change Begins with YOU

June 25, 2021


“If you do not change direction, you might end up where you are heading.” – Lao Tzu

With Juneteenth (finally) becoming a federal holiday, it seems like we are slowly moving in the right direction as a country. Social injustices are beginning to become apart of everyday conversations. No longer are we allowing people to act like everything is just fine and dandy. We’re starting to listen to each other more. People are more open to start a dialogue with those who might have different opinions or views.

In this political climate it’s so important to remain educated and open to starting these dialogues. We can’t always assume that everyone is aware of certain issues. Sometimes we have to be willing to enlighten people and we need to be patience with them whist teaching them.

#InmarIdeasThatMatter.

 If you’re looking for ways to better educate yourself, don’t worry I’ve got your back! I’ve curated a list of recommended resources for those who want to learn more about social justice, economic prosperity and ways we can improve the human condition:

Treat Yo Self (with Lush Bath Bombs)

June 21, 2021

Atom Heart Mother Lush Bath Bomb
Hey guys, long time no see. Or read…technically. I thought I’d stop by today and give you guys a small life update. There’s been a lot of new things going on in my life lately. A lot of it I can’t share…yet…but don’t worry, it’s all good things. 2020 was such a trying year, not just for me but for most people. I’m so glad things are finally sort of, for the most part, going back to normal. 

2020 seemed to go on forever. It’s crazy to think we are more than HALFWAY done with 2021. Seriously, where has the time gone?! Although things aren’t 100% back to how they were pre-2020 (some things will never be the same), I’m learning to take life day by day. I’m learning to enjoy the little things in life again. 

Like treating myself to some Lush bath bombs!

Broswing Mitsuwa Marketplace in Chicago + Kawaii Haul

March 26, 2021

Japanese market Mitsuwa Marketplace in Chicago Plushies
Happy Friday. Is it just me or is 2021 going by super fast? Like how is it APRIL next week?! (Aka my birthday month woohoo). I mean, I’ll take it I guess. I feel like 2020 was so slow so this fast pace 2021 is actually kinda refreshing. Also, random fact, but as I’m typing this (on March 25th), there’s exactly NINE months until Christmas, YAY!

I’ve blogged about Mitsuwa before (you can check that out here), it’s this really cute Japanese marketplace located right outside of Chicago. I don’t really leave my house to often (hello, we are still in a pandemic folks) but since this is basically a grocery store, I decided to visit last weekend to see what they had and to pick up a few items.

Here’s a few photos from my visit to Mitsuwa Marketplace: Continue reading

Animal Crossing New Horizons Island Tour + 1 Year of ACNH

March 17, 2021

Animal Crossing New Horizons Dom
First things first, Happy St. Patricks day. Second, my birthday is officially only ONE MONTH away (April 17th). And finally, you guys, it’s week THREE of me posting consistently! Woohoo. Gosh I missed blogging so much. It’s so therapeutic. There’s just something about sitting down, gathering your thoughts and writing/typing them out.

This Saturday (the 20th) marks ONE YEAR since the release of Animal Crossing New Horizons. I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but Animal Crossing helped me so much during quarantine. I seriously don’t know how I would have survived (okay maybe I’m being a bit extra but you get my point) March-May 2020 without this game. In honor of its one year anniversary I thought it would be fun to do a little mini tour of my island. Disclaimer, for the sake of time I won’t be typing out “Animal Crossing New Horizons” each and ever time I reference the game. So, for those who don’t know, Animal Crossing New Horizons = ACNH.

Here’s a little tour of my ACNH island:

Collecting McDonald’s Pokemon 25th Anniversary Happy Meal Cards

McDonalds Pokemon 25th Anniversary Happy Meal
Hey everyone. I bet you thought I was going to forget to post this week? Nope, I meant it when I said I was going to (try to) post at least once a week. Sure last week I posted on a Monday but *technically I didn’t say which day I would be posting on. Hehehehehe. So I’ve kept my word so far, yay!

I don’t know about kids today but us 90s kids had the BEST McDonald’s Happy Meal toys! Anyone remember the Disney VHS Happy Meal toys? How about the Space Jam plushies (I still have my Bugs and Lola ones to this day)? Oh my gosh, what about the BEANIE BABIES?! Yup, the Happy Meal toys used to be everything. Honestly the toys were better than the Happy Meal/the food.

I haven’t even thought about Happy Meal toys in like 15+ years but when I heard they were bringing back Pokemon cards, I knew I had to jump on that nostalgia train!

How could I not?!
