Encouragement Series // Just Try

I’m starting a new series on here centered around encouragement and inspiration / motivation to chase your dream. :) Each week or so, I’m going to try to post a new ‘mantra’ to help spark something within; things and words I want to keep in mind when I feel like I need the extra push. Hope you enjoy reading as well :) & Happy Friday!3e19b5022ec6c87b9a14e0f88741d4be

Cute Planters on Etsy


1 / 2 / 3 / 4

I’ve been on a succulent/bamboo/little plants and flowers kick lately. There’s something about them that just makes me happy – it’s like having a little colorful pet minus the moving, pooping and cuddling part haha. I was browsin’ Etsy, as one does (a lot) and saw a bunch of lovely little planters in their Spring Celebrations/Planters section. Maybe it’s Spring time or Easter or Mother’s Day coming up that’s drawing me closer to these things but either way, I think I’d like to start a mini collection soon. Come on, look at these little cuties… :)

Sunny Vibes

park I’ll start this with an iPhone pic ^

Saturday was just perfection weather-wise. No other choice but to take full advantage of it. So we basically spent the entire day roaming Central Park – chillin’ out, venturing about and appreciating all the sunny vibes around us. We even went on a little row boat ride which I must admit, I’ve been secretly dying to do for a while haha. (Not that I really rowed much but SHH) I of course brought along my camera and got some snaps. :) Nothin’ like a day in the park with my love accompanied by some springtime warmth. row1row3row9row13

Re-applyin’ my lips hehe

Need to Try — Watermelon Margaritas


This past weekend was basically summertime… and I LOVED IT. With temps in the high 70s and low 80s, I felt like I was living in a dream. Started off Friday by going party dress shopping with my three best friends for Rita’s engagement party coming up in June. Spent all of Saturday in the city with JB – more of our Central Park adventures coming soon – and then yesterday for Palm Sunday, I went to church for the first time in suuuuper long (kind of feel guilty about my lack of church attendance) and basically ate my weight in food at my aunt’s house. Fantastic weekend if I do say so myself :)

All this feel-good weather is making me a very happy gal. I saw this Watermelon Margarita recipe on Pinterest a little while ago and knew I had to save it for when the warm weather decided to show up. I’m dying to try it! It’s from ValSoCal’s blog and looks as delicious and refreshing as can be. I feel like it’s the kind of drink that will enhance the flavor of spring, summer, sunshine and happiness. It’s on my to-do list for sure.
