Quote of the Day

This is one of my favorite friendship quotes. Real friends are always there for you no matter what without any sort of judgement. They’re there to laugh with you, support you and simply be a shoulder to cry on.

Hope you enjoy this quick post.

My Trip to London

 

I got this black and gold top from Joyce Leslie for $4.00 and I really like the boxy fit and geometric pattern on it. For my other outfit the top underneath my jacket is from H&M and it was $7.00 and the pants I was wearing were $9.99 from H&M. I also got this army green jacket from Tesco. I heard Tesco was sort of like Target and I loved this lightweight jacket that I found on sale.

Below are some photos of some must see sights from London, such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye. Also, we went to the Greencoat Boy in London and the food was amazing there.

 

I also included some photos of Brighton. It was very windy and it was definitely reminded me of Atlantic City. I loved the Brighton Pier too and was surprised by how much there was to do. The dress I wore in the left corner was $12.99 from Old Navy and it was a pleated long sleeved dress with a simple skinny belt from Forever 21.

Overall, it was a great trip and I loved experiencing different parts of London. I’ll do a separate post about Primark and Oxford Street because I had a lot of fun shopping and it’s worth another post.

Hope you enjoyed my sharing of my holiday. Cheers 🙂

5 Things: 2015

I was inspired by weardaisywent, which is an awesome blog to check out! Here’s the link to her 5 Things:

Here are the 5 highlights from 2015 for me.

  • Traveling: This year I went to Montreal and the Bahamas for the first time, and both were amazing. Montreal is very artsy, and it was on my bucket list of places to travel. Additionally, I went to the Bahamas with my family and it was so relaxing. I’ve never been on a vacation like that, where I stayed on a resort, and I definitely made the most of it. I also had a lot of mini weekend trips, whether it was to a museum or to explore the city.
  • Taking Risks:  I used to be a more much calculated person. However, I’ve learned that there is so much to be gained by living in every moment. When you change your mind set to make the most of any situation, you become a risk-taker. I’ve taken so many more risks this year. I look back on some of the crazy things I’ve done this year and can’t believe I had the confidence to do some of them. A prime example: I crashed a wedding on New Year’s Eve. That was my first memory of 2015. Taking a leap of faith is scary, but it’s so much better to live with an “oh well,” than a “what if.”
  • Positivity: Besides living in every moment, I’ve also become a much more positive person. I think the main change is that I complain a lot less. Complaining doesn’t get you anywhere, and it certainly doesn’t change a crappy situation. There have been countless times this semester in school when I was overwhelmed with tons of work. But I knew that I just had to power through and take each day at a time.
  • College: This semester was amazing for me. I got promoted to an editor position for my newspaper. I also took on becoming a teaching assistant for the first time and continued with my radio show that I host on campus. Besides that, I started working at the theater for my school and started writing for a website. I worked so hard this semester, and it paid off. I also made a ton of new friends in the process of being so busy. I look back on my semester and am proud for how well I did on my own.
  • Blogging: When I first started my blog, I had no idea what I was doing. Making a blog is so simple, and again, it was another risk I took this year. However, it has definitely provided an outlet to express myself. As a writer, it’s nice to share my posts with other bloggers. I hope to grow from where I’ve started.

What are some of your highlights from this year?
