Weekly Wishes #3

Hey there everyone! I'm back with this week's Weekly Wishes, a weekly linkup for goals! This link up is run by The Nectar Collective, my new favorite blog and inspiration.  I'm finally back and ready to rumbleeee! 


  • Sit down and figure stuff out. I have so many ideas and goals in my head that I have a hard time following through because I get so jumbled. I'd love to take this week to sit down and write stuff down and be more aware of what I'm doing and how it's going to help me get to my goals.
  • Create a daily planner. I've loved using planners ever since... forever. And even now that I'm done with school, I feel kind of lost without my planner. I've used smaller ones before and while they do help in reminding me of simple things, I feel as if I need a big planner to help me stay focused and organized. 
  • Clean my room. I just want to get everything nice and tidy before I leave for a little vacation to Oregon to see my grandparents.
  • Pack ahead of time and plan outfits. I'm always in a rush when I pack so I'd love to plan ahead and prepare. Also I'd love to plan some outfits to film a Fall Lookbook. The scenery will be way more Fall in Oregon than here in SoCal. 
  • Work on training Lobo. If you don't know, Lobo (wolf in spanish) is my furbaby! He's so adorable and emotional and this will be his first trip anywhere. He's never been away from home and hasn't really been socialized. So this week I'd love to take him on more walks around people and just let him explore a bit more. 
  • Work on appearance and posts on A&C. I want to clean up the theme and work on some posts to schedule in case I get busy in Oregon.

Up & At 'Em - Workout Inspo

My friend and I were suddenly inspired to workout - aka hike a little bit and stop because we're out of shape. haha! But in all seriousness, like the quote above- it's important to strive for progress. When you're out of shape it's good to start exercising at your own pace. I love to do yoga when I'm feeling out of shape because it gets my blood pumping and it's an easy way to build up your strength. 

Here are a couple outfits I would wear to Yoga and on a hiking outing: 



I'm looking for some exercising routines/ tips too, so tell me,
What are your favorite workouts??

P.S. I'll be back to my regular blogging schedule! :D

Hair Inspiration: Subtle Unicorn Hair

Lately I've been gandering at Pinterest in search of something interesting to do to my hair. Of course, this leads to scrolling through hundreds of super bright/pastel unicorn haired gals. While I actually do adore those colors, I don't really think they fit my personality. The colors are just too in yo face and that's not really my style. Nonetheless, I've found some variations (above) that are unique and more subtle colors but still really kickass! Who knows if I actually have the guts to dye my hair silver... but I especially like the dark gray/green hue of pic #4. Maybe this will inspire you to....look at Pinterest haha! I don't know many people daring enough to die their hair these colors! 

What color would you dye your hair??

In any case, if your bored, cruise on over to my Pinterest

Weekly Wishes #2

Hey there everyone! I'm back with this week's Weekly Wishes, a weekly linkup for goals! This link up is run by The Nectar Collective, my new favorite blog and inspiration. It seems as though Tuesday's might be the day I will be doing these because on Mondays, I look just like Sanibel (above) haha. Plus Tuesdays are just oodles more fun! In my opinion. Tuesday's are also usually when I have a bunch of coffee and feel more energized! 


Set up a general weekly calendar. Yes and no. While I've got the general calendar set up, I'm finding that it might be easier to just set up my calendar two weeks in advance with more specific things. 
Plan/ Brainstorm future blog post ideas. I have thought about a few posts but more needs to be done! 
Research. Yes! I have researched... but anytime I research I always find that there's a lot more that I don't know than I do. haha! 
Finish organizing my room. This actually did not get done. I like to use the "Creative minds are rarely tidy" excuse. haha! 
Wake up everyday at 8 a.m. I'd say I'm still struggling a bit but it is getting easier! 


* I've realized, uh, duh! Why am I not using SMART goals to help me with this? Smart goals will commence now! :) *
Set up a *more specific* weekly calendar. I'd like to set up my calendar 2 weeks in advance. I'd like my calendar to include things such as, what blog posts will be posted when, when I should write them, if they need to be photographed long beforehand etc. I'd also love to develop a general daily agenda so that I can be up by a certain time, working on specific things, and then have time for other things. 
Carry around my notebook. This is more of a habit I would like to pick up. While I try to carry a notebook around, I often times forget. Having my notebook with me will help so much when I think of new ideas.
Organize my room. I'd love to have it completely organized and decorated so that I could possibly do a few make-up/get ready with me/hair/randomness videos. 
Research more and paperwork. Self-explanatory really.
Recap on NYFW. I really enjoyed watching the live stream on the first day of fashion week and I'd love to watch the rest and do a recap sometime this week!
Connect with more bloggers. I really want to make more blogger friends and just talk with people! :)
Send out another weekly newsletter. If you haven't seen on my sidebar, I have a weekly newsletter and yesterday I sent out my first one!! It was very exciting for me haha! And I hope I can make them exciting for you guys too!

The Nectar Collective

I adore this link-up because it really gets you thinking about your goals and how you're going to meet them. I encourage all of you guys to join! :)

What are your goals for the week??
