Consistent blogging? Look at me go. I don’t know what’s come over me but I’ve really been into blogging again! Yay. I think it’s because I took an almost year break from blogging. And also I’ve stopped putting so much pressure on myself when it comes to blogging. Blogging started off as a fun little hobby for me back when I was in college.
It then quickly become almost like a job/my career. I started earning a lot of money from blogging through ads, sponsorships collabs, etc. I also starting getting all these amazing opportunities because of my blog. (I’m actually thinking of doing a fun blog post related to some of the opportunities my blog has brought me). It was a great time but it was so stressful.
Now my blog is back to basically being a hobby again. And I love that!
It’s been a HOT MINUTE since I’ve bought a blind bag or blind box. In fact, my last Blind Box & Bag Roundup was posted back in January 2020. And the one prior to that was in late 2019. While I still find them to be cute, I’ve just simply grown out of collecting them. But then I went to BoxLunch last weekend. I had a pretty good coupon so I decided to browse the store to see if they had any cute Disney clothing for my trip later this month.
Color me shocked when I saw the CUTEST tokidoki SpongeBob SquarePants themed blind box right by the register. Like most 90s kids, and just people in general, I’m a HUGE SpongeBob fan. Even now as an adult I can still watch SpongeBob, especially the older episodes, and laugh. And I’m not exaggerating when I say that I quote SpongeBob at least three times a week in normal conversations.
So tokidoki + SpongeBob SquarePants? SOLD!
Hey friends! Guess what? Today was the start of a brand new chapter in my life (but more on that later). And to celebrate I decided to visit the brand new Crumbl Cookies here in Chicago. Before I get into this post I wanted to say that I’ve REALLY been into blogging again. Like I actively take my camera with me again and I’ve been coming up with lots of fun blog post ideas. In fact, I already have the next 3 blog posts lined up.
(I was meaning to post another one first but I was just so excited about my cookies I decided to publish this one first. Hehehe).
If you’ve never been to Crumbl Cookies…then you’re missing out!
“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.
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:
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!
