LIFE LATELY: Uhmmmm wait a second!! Where has this year gone? Are we seriously half way into 2017?! Life lately has been pretty boring. This week was a total fail in regards to productivity. However my diet was in decent order AND I did 4 hard workouts this week (YAY!). I have a bunch of things to do for school this coming week that I’ve been putting off. But it’s okay because sometimes I think I work well under pressure. Random update but I got my hair re-dyed last week and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. It is MUCH MUCH MUCH lighter than I’m used to but I still like it. I may get some warmer low-lights in the fall around my birthday to tone down the blonde for winter (especially because my hair lightens so much during summer) but we’ll see. I am going to share a review post on the blog next week with all the details about my new look.
AROUND THE BLOG: So yeah about that. Guys, I’m seriously the worst. I drafted so many posts but they’re all pending because I don’t like the photos I have for them (or I haven’t gotten around to shooting them yet… see procrastination note above). I know that you guys probably don’t care about the pictures but I do. I challenged myself to start taking my own shots for my little internet home. While I’m so happy to be improving my photography skills, it’s a hassle to find time to shoot and edit. I’m at a crossroad of I want pretty blog pictures but I also don’t want my blog to look like curated and staged fakeness. Maybe I’m overthinking it. This week will be better though, I promise.
LA LIVING: So I explored this really cool place yesterday. It had yummy food even yummier ice cream and cool shops to browse & window shop (because they were definitely out of my budget). I think I’ll keep this place a surprise for when I write a blog post about it. The best part is it’s outdoors, there’s wifi AND it’s a chill atmosphere where I can bring work. I can’t wait to show you!
Also random but I explored DTLA (downtown LA) for the first time with another LA blogger. Definitely check out her blog The Kashonna Files. I saw Grand Central Market for the first time and we just explored the neighborhood and grabbed lunch and took a few photos. I didn’t really do many photos of myself. As much as I love to blog, I also love to experience things in real time so I’ll have to do another trip to get good pics to share on the blog for you all!
WHAT I’M READING: Fail again. I haven’t picked up a book since last week’s life lately post. I don’t know what it is but other than working out, I really didn’t do much of anything this week. Maybe I overworked myself to exhaustion??
AROUND THE HOUSE: I got my new couch that I mentioned in last week’s life lately. I replaced the couch cover and I’m not loving the replacement couch cover I got. It’s supposed to be grey but it’s actually kind of blue… I know first world problems. I’m currently working on my living room and promise to do a reveal on the blog when it’s done. Right now I’m at a standstill because I’m not sure where I want to go decor wise. Everything was feminine glam but recently I’ve been wondering if I made a mistake and maybe I should have gone with a more minimal look… let me know what you think.
MEDICINE: I have started step 1 tutoring and I’m surprised how much I retained. I really hope that I can help the students I’m working with. I just wanna see my friends and peers succeed!
SHOP MY LOOK:
Sorry, this update was kind of lame. I know I didn’t post last week but I still wanted to honor my commitment and do a Life Lately. Hopefully next week’s update will be a bit more interesting. Although I will admit, in the world of blogging and social media, I love giving you guys glimpses into my real life, even if it isn’t glamorous. I dunno about you, but I like when my favorite bloggers show that they’re real people and not internet robots. So even though this week was kind of a dud, I hope you still appreciated this update just as much as I enjoyed sharing.
