Organizing Your Life

Sometimes during the week or even month you may get frazzled or you just feel like you need to refresh. A lot of people need a day to organize their lives whether it is scheduling your week in a planner, or doing your self care routine. Kalyn Nicholson calls this a GYST day which I love the name of that. GYST stands for Get Your Shit Together. I’ve always had a day but I have never had a name for it so all credit goes to Kalyn for that term.

Anyway my day is usually Friday because I spend my weekends with my boyfriend and I don’t really have time to get organized on Sunday like most people tend to do.

There are so many ways to have a day to yourself to get your life in order. I am a list person. I love making lists and it is so satisfying seeing all of your To Do things crossed off. So I would make a list of the things I need to do and I will either make a digital list or write it down in my notebook or planner. (I made a quick example below) I really like my planner because it is su…

My Favorite Current Reads

I love reading and I sometimes never know what to read. I like a lot of different types of books so I would usually take anyone's suggestion and I can go on about my favorite books of all time (Speak) but I wanted to make posts about some current reads that I have. Something I love are the free public library stations I find around town. There is one close to my boyfriends and I love going there and dropping off some books that I finished reading and taking some books to read next. I recently picked up A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I used to read his books all of the time but this one I actually haven't yet so I am excited to read this. I also watch a lot of Kalyn Nicholson on YouTube and she talks about the books she reads and I really like her choices in reads so I definitely pick up some that she has. Recently I picked up Calm by Michael Acton Smith because it looked really interesting and interactive and I like those kind of books where you can keep a journal and …

Favorite YouTubers

Favorite YouTubers

So YouTube isn’t what it used to be. There are a lot of YouTubers (jake and logan paul) who make the community look trashy and give other YouTubers a bad name. But there are a lot of great people of this platform that make it a lot better. I am just going to list a couple of people that I watch often.

Shane Dawson - I have been watching Shane since I was in middle school. He has always been my favorite YouTuber and I love what he is doing with his channel now. It has evolved so much and he puts out content that he works his ass off on and I truly appreciate all of the hard work that he puts into his videos. I also like the fact that he makes his videos in parts and spreads them out. It is like watching a TV show and you have to wait for the next video, but each one makes an impact that you and your friends will talk about for days. Jenna Marbles - Jenna is another OG YouTuber that I adore. I’ve never missed a video of hers and her videos are very light hearted and qui…

Cheap Kawaii Clothes

Finding cheap kawaii fashion
If you know my you know my style ranges from bohemian hippie to goth to pastel princes. I have always loved the pastel and kawaii fashion but sometimes it is hard to find those special pieces to really define your style. Sometimes the cheapest way to have these items (that actually fit right) is to make it yourself. I love sewing clothes but not everyone knows how to sew. So I am going to tell you what I do to collect the cutest clothes.
Thrifting - Thrifting is one of my favorite things to do when trying to find clothes that fit my style for a cheap price. I even found an entire cosplay in one visit because there are so many different pieces you can get and put together and alter. Some thrift stores like Goodwill will organize by color which is great if you want a specific color, but the sizes are not in order which can be frustrating. Thrift store like savers will organize by size so you can easily go to your size section and scan the pieces for your desir…

MUSIC: May Feelings

Its a couple days into May and I have the perfect peaceful and bubbly playlist for May. May to me feels bright and new. The flowers are blooming, spring is here and I can wear my cute pastel dresses without tights and a jacket. Spring is a time for new beginnings. Start a new goal this month, find some new sounds to listen to, or even find a new hobby. This playlist has some of my favorite artists like In Love with a Ghost, The Lumineers and more. Let me know what music you are listening to this month! I love finding new songs to listen to since music is playing in my life 24/7. Click the link below to go to the Spotify Playlist.

Top Places to visit on Long Island

Top Places to visit on Long Island!

If you live on Long Island I am sure you know all of the local hot spots and we all have our strong opinions on who has the best pizza (Papa Nicks in Bellport for me), but if you are visiting I am sure you would like to check out some of the best places we like to eat at and hang out. Just a side note, I am in Suffolk County which is eastern half of Long Island, so most things I will note are in Suffolk County. This is also a list of things that I personally enjoy going to and I hope that you will enjoy them as well. Top Ten Food: JT’s on the Bay - During the summer there are so many amazing places to eat at on the water. I enjoy going to JT’s on the Bay for some lunch. It is a quaint little place to eat outside on a beautiful day by the south shore, and if you would still like to try their food on a not so beautiful day you can visit JT’s Cafe in Blue Point. That Meetball Place - Patchogue is known for their selection of places to eat on Main Street.…

TRAVEL: Universal Orlando

Everyone needs a nice long vacation once in a while. My boyfriend decided to surprise me with a trip to universal Orlando Florida. I have never been and really wanted to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and be the Hufflepuff that I am. 
I recently posted a blog about traveling and the basic tips I have to being organized. It helped out a lot to prepare for this trip since we were going to be staying for 4 nights, 5 days. If you haven't read thatclick hereto check it out!
I have bad anxiety when it comes to transportation and flying is the worst but I was just so tired from the flight being so early, that it didn't really affect me. We flew with southwest out of our small local airport and it was a nice flight. We actually ended up landing early which was pretty cool. 

So we stayed at Cabana Bay, which is the hotel in the park. It has the coolest 60s retro theme that I just adore. Anything that is vintage I am all about. There was so much in this hotel alone to keep guests …
