Hey September!

Hey Guys!!!
August is finally over *after countless weeks* & we have four months left in 2017 which I really want to make count.

So it’s a new month, and I’ve started to think about what I actually want to accomplish with my blog going forward. The mission of my blog has always been the same: “To Inspire” and I intend to keep it that way.

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

CONTENT

This won’t change much, you’ll still see:

  • Food: In My Kitchen +  #EatOuts
  • Adventure/Island life: Traveling, partying and any other activity i do here in Antigua or abroad
  • Inspiration: Let’s Talk + Motivation Monday

With the addition of:

  • Blog Help: As I discover new ways to improve my blog I’d share them with you *it may or may not be new to you, but it may help someone*
  • In your 20s: This may factor into the inspiration headline, but we all know how stressful this decade can get. I’ll talk about my experiences and what I’ve been learning thus far.
  • Guest Posts: Collaborating with other bloggers or maybe an interview I do with someone because I want to share their story about a particular topic.

What’s your FUTURE lookin’ like?

Hey guys!!

It’s been a while huh? Well, I’m still here. Work been keeping me busy, and when I’m not doing that it’s a headache to do anything blog related. Finding inspiration to keep going gets difficult at times, but I try my best to continue this journey. Giving up is not an option.

So, let’s get into today’s post *which should also serve as an inspiration*:
What’s your future lookin’ like?

Vision Boardplanning

The point of a vision board is to illustrate visually what you’d like your life to be like in the future. That may include: family, career, travel and other life goals. Pictures may be taken from the internet, magazines and other illustrations you may have at home.

Designing a Vision Board

If you’d like to make a physical vision board all you’d need is a bulletin/foam board, pictures, adhesive and other decorative items you may desire. Pinterest is definitely your place to check out for ideas and proper planning methods. Continue reading “What’s your FUTURE lookin’ like?”

Hey April!

Hey guys!

Welcome to a new month.  I like the feel of new months, because I think they’re a chance for a fresh start. As cliché as it may sound it’s a great time for a new beginning; forget all about what went wrong last month and focus on the current moment. All the goals you made at the beginning of the year, continue to work on them and set individual steps to reach them. Continue reading “Hey April!”

Sunday Funday // Happy New Year

Hey Guys!!

How cool is it that New Year’s day falls on a Sunday? Not only do we get an extra day for a holiday, but it just makes the celebration even more worth it. Before we get into my first adventure of the year…..

It’s 2017! A whole new year, 365 days, 365 new chances; Let’s make the BEST of it! Continue reading “Sunday Funday // Happy New Year”

This Year I Will….

QUIT
Comparing my progress to others; “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

START
The gym *lol* or at least some sort of workout plan

VISIT
Montserrat. It’s so close to home and I also have family relations there, so why not?

ACCEPT 
Change. I don’t expect everything to stay the same in 2017; things will happen whether good or bad and you’d have to learn to accept them. Continue reading “This Year I Will….”

Year in Review

Hey Guys!!

I’ve totally flaked on my blog this week *I know*. I had the grand idea of participating in blogmas by even shortening it to 12 days and I still fell short. However, I’m here today to discuss my year, 2016.

What can I say about 2016?

I don’t think there’s any one word to describe it for it had its ups and downs. I feel like a lot happened this year pertaining to the world, but for me not so much *or maybe I’m downplaying myself a bit*. Continue reading “Year in Review”

Destination Unknown

OMG!!

I can’t believe there are only THREE days left in the year; 2016 is definitely getting out of here with quickness. That also means three more days to get my life in order and make some goals for 2017.

For this year I only started making plans in January which was extra late, but this time hopefully it’s not the same. At the beginning of the year I was living in Texas and had a totally different outlook on my life and where I’d be at this point in time.

It’s good to make plans and to have an idea of where you want to go in life and the accomplishments you want to make. However, some times everything doesn’t go as planned and changes occur. The path I had set out for myself in January took many turns, and eventually I had no choice but to go with the flow.

As I go into 2017 I welcome new pathways in hopes that they enrich me with blessings and lessons to be learnt.

Welcome Home

“If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.”

Path 

 

Travel

Travel Tag

  1. You are leaving tomorrow to start a new life, where would you go?

    Oh Canada – At the current moment my dream is to pursue my master’s degree in Canada. I always had dreams of living there as well; loved it after my first visit.

  2. You could take someone for a weekend away to the place you had your best holiday ever,where would that be and who would you go with?

    Image result for isla roatan
    In my twenty-one years of life I’ve had some great holiday moments, my best one would have to be a carnival cruise to the western “Caribbean”. My favorite stop was Isla Roatan, Honduras; I would gladly return for a weekend to do some exploring and take my best friend.

  3. You can get married wherever you want and your budget is limitless, whats your choice?

    Image result for antigua destination wedding
    This is a tough one considering the fact that I’m unsure of marriage, can I just have a wedding for the fun of it? *Lol* If I had to choose a destination wedding spot I’d choose my very own island Antigua and spend most of the money going all out on the decor, dresses, food, and photography. On another note this is a TRAVEL tag, so maybe I should choose elsewhere?  Hmm, nah.

  4. You could go back in time and relive one family trip, which one?

    It’d have to be our trip to Atlanta, Georgia. I would suggest more activities to do in our time besides going shopping. I’m sure there’s lot to discover.

  5. During your travels you can bring home one animal as a pet which one would it be?


    Strangely enough the first animal I thought of was a wolf, now where am I travelling to find a wolf? It’s the closest thing to a dog, so why not?

  6. What’s the one thing you would park first for a one year travel around the world?

    Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera - Urban Outfitters:
    My camera of course! As soon as I invest in one it’d definitely be my travel buddy anywhere I go.

  7. What would your fantasy 100th Birthday destination be and why?

    Image result for hawaii
    100th Birthday?!? Well if I make it that far I’m thinking a trip to Hawaii with my family. I tried to pick an island so I can simply continue enjoying life preferably on a beach.

  8. During your travel you can learn one sport and become a pro, which one would it be and why?

    Image result for gymnastics
    Is gymnastics a sport? I think yes! I’ve always been interested in gymnastics from watching movies and the Olympic games. It’d be cool to be flipping on the bars and balance beams like a pro.

Goodbye September, Hello October

Am I the only one who thought that September lasted forever and a day? Like it would never end? Somber September was what it was for me and probably my most miserable month for the year. Usually September is back to school month, therefore something to look forward too but now there was nothing. Summer was over, all the parties and shenanigans were done, my friends that are still attending college overseas have returned, and where was I? Of course I still had friends here, but this would have been different. Reality begun to set in *as if it didn’t each day*, but being home 24/7 gives you A LOT of time to think.  [Read my post Here & Now to get an idea why.]

However, I’m more than ready to say goodbye to somber September. Adios! Chao! Good riddance. With all these goodbyes I hope to get rid of my current feelings and do a complete 180 on my mood. September has taken a toll on me and all I can hope is October changes everything.

So once more I say GOODBYE SEPTEMBER

« O C T O B E R // let's do this »:

In welcoming October I open my heart to new blessings, new chances, new memories to be made, new goals, a new mindset. I’m determined to put my best foot forward and work my hardest to start achieving everything I deserve.

October also happens to be my birth month woohoo!

Hello October, I’ve been waiting.
Stay tuned!!

101 Things to do in 1001 Days

Hey guys!!

Welcome to my new page “101 in 1001”. A lot of you may have seen other bloggers participating in this goal list challenge, and I thought why not? It’s an easy way to set some goals, make some new posts, and in some way be held accountable for completing them. I originally got this idea from blogger Jhaneel Lockhart and you can see her list here. It’s basically a list of 101 things you’d like to complete in 1001 days (2.75 years). I followed her idea of breaking it into groups: Long overdue, Personal, Travel, Antigua (where I currently live), Food, Family/Friends, Passion projects, Just for fun, Blog goals, and other.  So without delaying any further, here is my list!
