If you’ve been following along with this blog over the years then you’d know I’m a HUGE holiday lover. No seriously, I am OBSESSED with holidays. Honestly obsessed is putting it lightly. I’ve never met someone who was in love with holidays as much as me. I can’t explain why but there’s something about decorating for holidays and just holiday decor in general that just makes me happy. And shouldn’t we all be encouraging each other to do more of what makes us happy?
Because I love holidays so much, I don’t ever want them to end. That’s why I like to extend holidays for as long as possible. Don’t judge me but I legit decorate for holidays over a month before they are even set to happen. Halloween? I decorate for it on September 1st. Christmas? My tree is up and decorated by November 1st. Sorry not sorry!
Decorating for holidays just warms my heart.
Long time no see! I feel like I’m constantly saying that here on the blog. I promise I want to be more active with blogging but life keeps getting in the way I guess. What’s crazy is I have so many blog posts ideas (and a few drafts) but I just can’t seem to find the time to edit/post. It’s like I’ll start editing photos or writing out a post and then BOOM! something comes up and I have push back the post.
I have three posts I’ve been meaning to publish for almost two months now (one of which is almost done but it still needs to be edited a bit) but one thing after another keeps popping up and leaving me no time to edit/blog. There’s been some big changes in my life recently (with more to come, fingers crossed) that definitely take precedence over blogging BUT I’m really trying to find a balance.
Hopefully I can learn to balance things a little better!
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!
