I love knowing what people really eat, so naturally if there’s a What I Eat in a Day video or blog post, I’m there. Today, the tables have turned and I’m sharing. It’s difficult to capture what a usual day of food is for me, so there will definitely be more of these in the future. I eat whatever I feel like (within reason) and on this particular day, I was craving cooked hearty food. Regardless of cravings, it’s all vegan and free of oil and refined sugar. Oh and lazy person friendly.
Yes, I really did that and I’m finally talking about why.
Today, I have a little bonus content for you! I don’t usually post on Wednesdays, but because there was no video on Sunday, I wanted to do a casual chatty get ready with me to make up for it. I show you my everyday makeup (hello, glow!) and then pick an outfit and what to do with my hair, too.
Happy Sunday! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. It’s currently rainy and gloomy here, but I suppose that’s okay because it ensures I don’t get distracted by the sunshine and abandon this post. I have all kinds of bullet journal things to share, so let’s jump into it!
Why do we care how beauty gurus on YouTube, millionaire CEOS and cool people everywhere spend the first couple of hours of their day? I don’t know how many times I’ve been sucked into articles and videos about morning routines, hoping to learn some secret way to start the day that will make me a better human. Like everything else in life, it’s not a “Do this and everything will magically change!” kind of thing.
The typical morning routines are formed out of necessity, but the ones being presented all over the internet aren’t just about eating breakfast, getting dressed and running out the door. While the content varies, the emphasis is on creating a mindful morning. These people aren’t just rolling out of bed, they are consciously starting the day in a manner that sets them up for success. Or are they?
Secondhand stores, flea markets, garage sales- I’ve been to them all recently. I love a good thrift haul, so it’s only right to share my finds with you! It’s mostly clothes with a few pieces of home decor. Enjoy!
I know thrifting can be intimidating for some, so I’ve also rounded up five tips that will help you find cheap treasures.
How is it June already? On second thought, I’m not going to question it and instead enjoy the summer weather. Let’s take a look at what I loved during May.
Happy Sunday! Today I’m sharing my beginner bullet journal setup and why I love the system. It can seem confusing at first, but it’s actually quite simple. If you don’t know what bullet journaling is, there are a ton of very thorough explanations online. To summarize, a bullet journal is a catch all for everything in your life. It’s a planner plus whatever you want it to be. That could be a habit and sleep tracker, lists, your budget, journaling, doodling, a space for random thoughts and anything that’s important to you. It is completely customizable. All you need is a notebook, a pen and lots of things you want to keep track of.

I have a secondhand gray sweatshirt that I love so much that when I found it again at Goodwill, I bought it. Then I found a red one by the same brand. Naturally, I bought it because when you find the perfect cozy clothes, why say no? Unlike the first two, the red sweatshirt stayed tucked in a drawer unworn. It was missing something and I think adding some playful embroidery was just what it needed.
