New Year, New Vision

Happy New Year Everyone!
I can't believe another year has come and gone, it feels like 2016 was simultaneously a blur and the longest time ever. A LOT happened in 2016. As the years come and go technology advances, news of all sorts become available to everyone and it feels as though more bad than good is happening in the world. The new year is a great time to turn over a new leaf, sure, it's what we say every end-of-December-beginning-of-January time of the year. But don't think about becoming a new you, necessarily. Think about what your new vision or point of view will be for this coming year, 2017.

Like I mentioned in my last post, I have been going Pinterest CRAZY the past week. I've been creating vision/inspiration boards while listening to Shawn Mendes' Live at MSG (really puts me in an inspired mood! LOL). Anyway, I thought I would just pick a few pictures from each board to share with you all, so you can feel a little inspired for this new year!

Happy Friday! December 23, 2016

Happy Fashion: I've been super into turtleneck sweaters lately!

Happy Travel: It's definitely getting cold and rainy where I am right now, so I'm daydreaming (with the chin in the palm of my hand - Ariana Grande anyone? No? okay, anyway) of Turks and Caicos (and summer time in general!)

Happy Food: Some spicy apple cider sounds so good right now!

Happy Music: Shawn Mendes' new album Illuminate just came out and I'm going to his concert in the summer so I'm SO EXCITED!

Happy Videos: I've been super into this song lately!

Happy Randoms: I've always been a Pinterest fan, but I have been creating new boards left and right! Here are some pretty inspiration collages I just pinned from tumblr!

If you're still reading my blog, you are so awesome! Hope you had a great holiday!

Happy Friday! August 5th, 2016

Happy Fashion: I have been loving distressed denim, I made, like, 5 pairs of distressed cutoffs this summer!
Happy Travel: I've been so obsessed with boardwalks and the space between them where the pillars meet the ocean, so beautiful

Happy Food: I recently made these carrot dogs that I featured on this post, and they tasted so good! I'm such a big fan

Happy Music: I've been playing this song on repeat over and over again. I walk my dog every night and during the walk I listen to this song a minimum of 5 times LOL!

Happy Videos: I have been OBSESSED with this cover of Unsteady and I love how Kurt incorporates the car into the music

Happy Randoms: This quote is so cute and perfect for summer!

Happy Friday! June 17th, 2016

Happy Fashion: I've been obsessed with off-the-shoulder dresses!

Happy Travel: Now that it's summer all I want to do is go to the beach (no surprise...hence the name of my blog!)

Happy Food: Umm doesn't this Smoky BBQ Carrot Dog with Creamy Chickpea salad look freaking delicious??

Happy Music: Love this song!

Happy Videos: Really like this The Voice audition that introduced me to Adam Levine's song "Lost Stars"

Happy Randoms: My sister and I ordered Hello Fresh for the first time. In case you don't know what Hello Fresh is, it's a food delivery company (like Blue Apron) that delivers ingredients for recipes they include. It's a cool way to cook a homecooked meal if you are too busy to shop or find recipes. I've found Hello Fresh to be fun and easy, but I don't know if I would exchange it for going out to a grocery store and having your own pick of which vegetables to buy, etc. I'm also going to be trying out Blue Apron later this summer so maybe I will do a comparison post of the two of them!

Thanks for sticking around despite my horrible lack of posting!

Grecian Vibes, Asian Prints

Yay for functional pockets!
I LOVE 2 piece outfits they're so great because you can mix and match the pieces, and they can also be an easy outfit you don't have to think about!

Beauty Review: Colourpop Lip Products

Hi All! A friend told me about Colourpop cosmetics and I fell in love with their lip products! They do matte lip products that aren't drying, it's amazing! I got a lippie stix and lippie pencil. The lip products are very affordable and have great color pay off!

Happy Friday! February 26th, 2016

Happy Fashion: Lace-up flats and heels, too cute! My sister actually DIYed a pair by buying flats from Goodwill and adding ribbon

Happy Travel: As always I'm dreaming of warmer weather, and I'm super excited for my trip to Disneyland and SoCal in May :)

Happy Food: I've always loved Green Tea but I've been on a super Green Tea kick lately so this Iced Coconut Matcha Latte looked too good not to share. The best part is, it's super easy to make!

Happy Music: Such a beautiful medley! My favorite part is 1:55-2:03!

Happy Videos: Are you a super romantic? There is this new romance series on YouTube, and I'm not going to lie, I've been binge watching like crazy! If you watch it, comment below what your favorite story line is! Also, I recommend just jumping in and watching a series rather than watching the trailer because in my opinion the trailer is a little cheesy...

Happy Randoms: This awesome DIY I have to try! I'm wondering if it would look more classic if it was covered in marble contact paper or painted a matte black...

I'm sending lots of love because I'm all cheery to get through my last week of classes before Spring Break and my birthday! :)
