February Favorites 2018❤️

Sharing monthly favorites isn’t something I normally do on my blog, I also can’t say that I’ll do it each month from here on out but I did have some favorites of February that I want to share. Most of these will be pictures but I’ve included a few posts and videos I loved also.

SnapChat with Zoey💖

One of my favorite pages I read from the sun and her flowers during the month.

Trueee! I instantly fell in love with this Love Like 90’s R&B Hoodie Crop from Rue 21☺️ I caught it while there was a sale.

I also picked up this cheap Blind Love Glitter phone case from Rue 21, I felt it was perfect for the month! I obviously had to be careful with this case because it’s not made for protection, I dropped it a couple of times but only the case was affected (barely) the case is now on sale for $1!

As my hair grows I’ve been able to try more hairstyles. This has been one of my favorite hairstyles so far, puff and bangs. I’ll be sharing a better look at this style in one of my natural hair posts that will be coming soon.

A few days ago I went to one of the parks in my city. Last week we had several floodings in the area and this park was one of them. There are 2 levels at the park and both were pretty much underwater. I heard a boy mention he had been there just the day before on the swings and now those aren’t able to be used. There was also a few ducks swimming around. I took several pictures but this one is one of my favorites. Flooding is never great but it was still a sight to see.

Walking in the muddy park with my good boots on. They aren’t my good boots anymore and this little adventure was not planned. I still enjoyed all of it.

In February I had severe hiccups lol that is where this Google search came from and #5 actually worked! Which is why I’m including it in my favorites. In school, I always tried holding my breath, drinking water quickly and even being scared but neither of those worked. So I tried pulling my tongue which seemed weird and wasn’t as simple as I imagined but the hiccups were gone! Have any of you ever tried this?

A new milestone reached on my 2nd blog! 2/17/18

I recently came across mama_et_mia on Instagram and fell in love with a picture she shared of her daughter jumping on a mattress that she edited very nicely. If you view her BTS story she shows you her editing process. Really cool, check her out!

My favorite blog posts (on GPJ & SLL)

Describing Each Zodiac Sign (my opinion/experience)

How To Make A Blog Header + Tips (Beginners)

Videos I Loved This Month:

The question asked, “What do you do when you feel butterflies in your stomach?” 3-year-old Amalah answers, “I just say, where’s the diamond?” 😂😂😂 The video is super adorable and you all should definitely watch it! Check out the whole channel while you’re there!

Those are my February favorites, what did you enjoy this February?❤️


Hobby Adventures: Nail Designs (pt.2)

Last week I shared a few old pictures of some nail designs I tried on myself. If you haven’t checked that post out already, go ahead and do that before or after you’re all done here:) Hobby Adventures: Nail Designs (pt.1)

Painting my nails quickly became a hobby I enjoyed. I was a beginner, so the designs weren’t really fancy and a beginner is where I stayed because I lost interest just as quickly. I mentioned I would be sharing a few of my hobbies I’ve had throughout the years for the next few weeks, and possibly recreating some of them. So today I decided to recreate one of my nail designs. Was it a pass or fail?

This is the design I decided to recreate, but I wanted to use different colors. I didn’t have the same exact color choices anyway.

I chose to go with pink, silver, and blue. Instead of doing the cheetah print I wanted to try polka dots hoping they would smear nicely after applying a top coat for a cool effect.

I first applied a clear coat base, this protects the nail from staining and also helps the paint last longer. The same with applying a top coat. Once I decided which color I wanted each nail, I began to draw the XO. The first time I did this I believe I used a toothpick or a skinnier polish brush which I didn’t have this time so I had to use the blue polish brush lightly. I also used this method to do my polka dots.

Basically, it didn’t turn out how I hoped. Pass or fail? Definitely a fail. Take a look for yourself:

After applying the clear top coat you can kind of see the effect I was talking about. Kind of… And yes, I didn’t bother cleaning around my nails because I knew I wouldn’t be keeping them this way.

Trying to draw the XO on my left hand was very difficult. A hot mess.

I believe where I messed up the most was using a bit too much polish than needed. This causes the drying time to last forever. That was always my problem as well as patience. I was ready to do other tasks and my nails suffered in the process smearing all over the place and taking on other textures. This is how they looked after all the madness… Does it say “RO” now? Is that even a letter at all anymore? A hot mess.

A better look at that effect I keep talking about that never turned out right…

So is this a hobby I can see myself getting back into? Probably not. LOL!
Solid colors and a little glitter will do just fine.

See you all next week with another hobby adventure!adk_0001

Blogmas Day 5: Winter Likes & Dislikes💙❄️

It’s December, people are in the holiday spirit, it’s cold outside and I know many people especially in my family that love cold weather. I actually am not one of them. Winter is honestly my least favorite season (mainly because of the weather) but there are still many things that I do love about it! I think it’s like that with every season right? Things you’ll like and dislike about it. Today’s Blogmas post is going to be what I like and dislike about winter.

What I Like About Winter❄️

  • Having hot chocolate, with marshmallows on top of course!
  • Movies
  • Wearing sweaters, cardigans, & boots!
  • The snow
  • Scenery- A beautiful blanket of snow, before there’s any footprints or slush. The trees coated in snow, all the decorations
  • Decorating the Christmas tree and yard
  • The holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year)
  • Shopping/great sales!
  • Soup. Yes, a warm bowl of soup or stew during the winter is amazing😋
  • Fuzzy long socks
  • Candy canes/peppermint. Gingerbread houses & Christmas cookies
  • Cuddling
  • Heaters/fireplace
  • Relaxing with a good book
  • Less bugs
  • Pajamas/onesies
  • Longer nights

What I Dislike About Winter❄️

  • Cold weather
  • Getting in & out of the shower while it’s cold
  • Not much to do outside like it is in the Summer especially for someone who doesn’t like being out in the cold much
  • Dirty snow, slush. Doesn’t look too appealing and it’s pretty messy.
  • Ice, slipping. Ugh! The worst!
  • Waiting for cars to warm up
  • Getting sick
  • Seeing the flowers die, bare trees, and dead grass
  • Getting out of bed in the morning. When it’s cold I just want to lay underneath the covers all day.
  • Having to bundle up to leave the house if it’s too cold out. I hate having to bundle up because it’s kind of uncomfortable.
  • Bulky coats. Bulky coats are definitely uncomfortable. Or maybe I’m the only one that thinks so?
  • Scraping car window of snow and ice. I don’t drive, but I’ve had to help people scrape their car windows before and it’s not meant to be a fun time.
  • Dry skin, but bloggers and vloggers can make great winter skin care content so that’s a plus.
  • Slow driving. It is so annoying when the roads are so bad but you have to be out and you have to drive or ride around very slow. I actually love car rides but I would prefer the normal speed.

Those are my Winter likes and dislikes. I’d love to know what you like or dislike about winter. Leave a comment letting me know. Leave a comment if you can relate to any of mine.💙❄️

Blogmas Day 3! What Am I Watching??💚✨

It’s day 3 of Blogmas and as I’m typing this I’m thinking about ending the night cozying up next to the heat and watching a good movie. It’s one of my favorite things about the holidays and tonight I’m going to share some of my favorite movies to watch during the winter. What movie will you be watching?

❄️My Favorite Christmas/Winter Movies❄️

1.Elf Elf is definitely one of my favorite comedy Christmas movies😂. I had to include it first, but this is in no particular order.

2.Holiday In Handcuffs I’m not sure if any of you have seen Holiday In Handcuffs before, I first saw it on ABC Family several years ago and loved it ever since. A waitress tries to fool her parents by kidnapping one of her customers, a handsome guy, bringing him to her parents and forcing him to pretend to be her partner for Christmas. A comedy with romance. If you haven’t seen it already, you might like it.🙂

3.Dr.Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas Okay, we all know how The Grinch stole Christmas right? Classic.

4.The Polar Express I’d say this is another classic. I think I’ve watched The Polar Express at some point during the holidays each year.

5.The Nightmare Before Christmas 6.Snow Day

7.The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe

8.The Ultimate Christmas Present This has to be one of my favorite Disney Channel Christmas movies.

9.Snowglobe Snowglobe is about a woman who is given a snow globe which turns out to be magical and transports her into a Christmas wonderland where everyday is December 25th.

10.Snow Dogs

11.Mr. Popper’s Penguins 12.Jack Frost

Those are just 12 of my favorites but of course there are so many others that are just as wonderful to watch. What are some of your favorite holiday movies? Do we share any favorites? Which movie from my list would you watch if you could after reading this? Let me know in the comments.💚

The 2nd Day of Blogmas!💚✨

It’s the 2nd day of Blogmas!

Blogmas wouldn’t be complete without a wishlist of course, so for day 2 I’ll be sharing my personal holiday wishlist. I don’t count on getting much this year and Christmas isn’t about gifts especially when you’re older, but I thought it would still be fun to look around and create a list of what I would like if Santa or any loved ones came to visit this year😊

I want:

Cute notebook/planner

New iPad

Cute phone cases


Question: Is it weird to ask for notebooks as a gift? I’ve actually never done that and now I’m wondering why🤷🏽‍♀️

I need:



I’ll wear:



Cute scarf


I’ll read:

Milk And Honey by Rupi Kaur

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso

One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M.Mcmanus

Into The Water by Paula Hawkins

But something I would really love:

Something personalized with my name on it (other than a t-shirt or mug) or with a personalized message from the one gifting me. I think that would be really thoughtful and sweet.

That wasn’t much to ask for and not long if a list at all right?😊

What are some things on your Christmas wishlist this year? Let me know in the comments.💖✨

Merry Blogmas! I’m participating💚✨

Merry Blogmas dear blog friends! It’s actually quite weird for me to say because this is my first time participating in Blogmas as this is my first year as a blogger. But also because I haven’t been posting as frequently, especially not everyday I haven’t done that in months. So much is still going on and I’ve been a bit busy, I plan to do a life update next week to fill you all in.

This month I will be posting everyday, early or late so just stop by when you get the chance to see if I’ve posted. I understand that some people do not celebrate Christmas or the holidays so for that reason there will be Christmas, winter, and other fun related posts.

As for Blogmas Day 1 I will be doing a simple post to get things started.

How many words can you make out of “Merry Blogmas?”

My list is down below. Comment what other words you came up with that I may have missed (3 or more letters.)

To make it more fun and challenging, time yourself and see how many different words you come up with in say…5-10 minutes?





















Orgasm…(Okay, at this moment I realize I’ve placed oral and orgasm together… I could have switched words around or taken one out but what fun is that? We’re all mature here right🙂)







































That’s what I have on my list but I’m sure there are so many others! I’d love if anyone comments any big words they find also. See you all tomorrow for day 2 of Blogmas! A Golden Blogmas💖

Happy Fun Friday!✨
