Weekly Recap; April 8th – 14th

I’m sad my birthday month is half way over!

Though it seems Spring is playing hide-and-go-seek here in Texas. One day it’s 90° and the next you’re waking up to 40°. The weather here is so freakin crazy! But at least today there’s sunshine!

Weekly Recap; March 18th – March 24th

I realized I didn’t write a recap for last last week. Whoops. I don’t know how the hell I just lost track of days like that.

Today I’m a bit tired of being an adult who has to pay bills. Even though I’ve been paying bills since I was 17. Ugh.

I can’t even really seem to remember how this week went.

According to the pictures it was actually kind of busy!

Hello

Happy Spring!

IMG_0197

There are few things in life that instantly put me in a good mood — Spring season is one of them.

Despite I spend 70% of my day every day sneezing my soul out. And even though my allergies are awful in the Spring (though to be fair they’re just as bad in Fall which is also my favorite season).

But also my birthday is in the Spring!

I love how you get super excited for your birthdays until you hit like 25 then it’s like shit, I’m hella close to 30. I’m turning 33 this year which means I’m inching closer and closer to 40 and I’m not sure how I fuckin feel about that.

There’s so much I want to DO and SEE and EXPERIENCE. There’s so much I’m not ready for. There’s so much I want to be ready for but I don’t know how. And as always, I feel like I’m running out of time. Then again I’ve felt like that since I was 13.

However this is my first real Spring in Texas and my first birthday here. Every time I live somewhere I come up with a new tradition, on accident. I’m a little worried since I don’t know what to do for my bday since I don’t know much about Texas but I’m also really curious to see what I’ll stumble on.

Though I have thought of creating a tradition with this super cute bakery in Dallas called Sweet Daze. But we’ll see.

Today is also this sweet girl’s THIRD ADOPTAVERSARY!

Today 3 years ago I got to finally take Sophie home! In the last 3 years we’ve moved FIVE times to FOUR different cities and to TWO states. She’s been my cuddle buddy, my nap buddy, my alarm clock, my time-to-go-to-bed clock, my guard cat and my best friend.

She’s licked my tears while I’ve cried. She’s swatted my arm to get extra loves and she’s woken me up with kisses. She is the sweetest soul I’ve ever encountered and the most laid back cat. She doesn’t get mad. She doesn’t get attitudes. Sometimes she talks back and sometimes she just talks. But she’s never bit anyone out of anger or annoyance. She’s patient with everything except loves. And she loves attention. She also loves cheese. And sea salt kettle chips. And coconut ice cream.

Everyone advised I didn’t adopt her when I found her because she was 10 and only weighed 5 pounds but I’m glad I didn’t listen and held on to her until I could take her home. I don’t regret any of it one bit.

Happy 3 years baby girl, I hope you’ll stick around for another 3. And maybe 3 more after that?

What are some of your favorite things about Spring?

Candle Review; Bath & Body Works > Some Bunny Loves You

IMG_1106

If you’re like me and you missed out on The Sweet Shop Bubblegum candle then you were probably excited to hear that they came back out with it for Easter but only as a mini candle called “Some Bunny Loves You”.

The scent notes are;

Pink Sugarcane, Juicy Watermelon, Hint of Vanilla

Which ironically fused together do make a prettyyyy strong bubblegum scent! Crazy, right?!

Oh, well, I thought so lol.

I have the bigger version as you’ve seen in my previous blog post but I don’t want to burn it cause it’s the only one I have though I’m SO CURIOUS to know if the bigger one has a better scent throw.

SPEAKING OF.

The scent throw sadly for this small one is pretty… non existent. Which is really sad! On cold sniff it’s SO strong. Like I think if I just left it open it might have thrown it better lol! When lit this doesn’t smell like anything. I don’t know if it’s just the first burn that’s like that, but I haven’t burned it again.

I personally feel like ever since Bath & Body Works stopped working with Slatkin & Co the candles, especially the mini candles don’t have a very strong scent throw anymore. This is also true for some of their other 3-wick candles.

I do love the scent of this — I’ve been super attracted to Bubblegum and Cotton Candy scents for awhile now, I’m not sure what the reasoning behind this is besides that it seems like a happy scent and everyone could use a bit of happy through their days!

I may very well give in and light the bigger one just to see if it makes a difference. I just wish the bigger one wasn’t so hard to track down! I see they have the Lavender Marshmallow, Lemon Drops and a few others still in stock on the site (which I’m thinking of buying another of these also so I can light the ones I have and not feel guilty) but a lot are also missing. Strange.

Have you purchased this mini? Were you able to get your hands on a Bubblegum candle?

Hello

It’s Starting to Look Like Spring \o/

IMG_5210

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year — besides Fall.

I’m such a sucker for all the pretty shades of pink and all the pastel’s and greens. And oh! Easter! Easter candy, Easter decor, Easter vibes… my birthday sometime’s falls on Easter and I use to hate it cause everything is closed that day so I didn’t really get to go celebrate but it hasn’t landed on Easter in a really long while (though I do worry every year lol) so it’s all good lol!

There are two times a year I look forward to Williams Sonoma seasonal candy and that’s for Easter when they come out with these delicious sour bunnies I’ve grabbed every year since 2011 (pink is grapefruit, green is key lime and yellow is lemon — tbh I only like the green ones) and Halloween when they release the sour pumpkins (which I think overall are orange flavored).

Hello, Recap

Weekly Recap; Feb 25th – March 3rd

Well, February is officially over.

And that’s just crazy.

This week was spent mostly over at READARELLA and laying in a puddle full of feels because I finished A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas which is the second book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, a loosely based Beauty and the Beast retelling but with Faeries and courts (I love Faerie books because I love hearing about the different courts) and RHYSAND. Oh, my soul is still aching about everything that happened!

Anyway, on to what happened this week!

Weekly Recap; Feb 18th – Feb 24th

I feel like this week just ZIPPED RIGHT ON BY.

But I always tend to feel like that don’t I? Heh.

Bubba made me deal; if I can organize my closet, bedroom, desk and kitchen by the 9th he’ll either get me my desktop or my G7x camera I’ve been wanting FOREVER. Which means I can start vlogging and filming more videos again! I’m so hyped! I’m also so damn spoiled! LMAO. So I’ve been writing some of these blog posts early so I can focus on getting started on cleaning and organizing the rest of the week (cause there’s A LOT to get done)!
