2017 resolutions

   I don’t know about you all but I suck at keeping resolutions! Like really, really suck! I’m talking about like I’ll keep it for a few days and forget about it! Haha! But this year I am dead set on them, 2016 was a poo year for me! 

  

  1. Be healthy: I’m sure this is on the top of everybody’s list. But this time I’m about making a lifestyle change, which is hard to do being a baker! My plan is to eat more fruits and vegetables, as well as more grains! I also want to incorporate Herbalife into my diet. I have used their products and completely stand by the name! I just get lazy and let “the plan” fall through. 
  2. Perfect recipes: Eventually I want to open my own bakery, I have hundreds of recipes that need to be perfected to see if they will make the cut for my bakery. 
  3. Travel: I love to travel but this year I want to revisit places I haven’t been in a while first on my list will be Pasadena,CA. I know we just moved about 9 months ago from there but it’s such a beautiful place I cannot wait to go back! Second is a tie between Nyc and Philly. I’ve been to both places before but it’s been way too long! 
  4. Debt: This year I really hope to pay off old debt. I want to focus on finances and create a “plan” that works for me! This also goes without saying but I would love to build my credit whilst paying off debt! 
  5. Blog/YouTube: I’ve been saying it for years now but I would love to create content on YouTube (I just need the guts to do it)! But I also want to focus on this blog! I do love it, sometimes life just gets in the way and too much time passes between posts. 
  6. Be truly happy: I want to find ME this year. Which I don’t think is totally possible because I think we will forever be a work in progress but I can’t wait to find more things out about myself! Also, I want to stop complaining about things. Now I’m not saying I’m a giant complainer but I want to be more go with the flow and to accept things for what they are! 


Well that’s it for me, at least for now! I intend to keep you all updated with my resolutions and maybe do a monthly update to keep myself accountable! Let me know what your resolutions are and how you intend to keep them.

Until next time!

Wish wish wish list

Hello lovelies! 

As promised I am starting my accomplishment /wish list.. Hope you all enjoy! Leave me any comments below if you have any suggestions or thoughts ☺️



First things first these need to happen in my life! These are from California donuts and they seem to have the most eclectic donuts I’ve ever seen. Not to mention I’ve heard nothing but the best about them! P.s. They are open 24 hours😍. 



How stinking cute is this phone case!! It’s from Lilly Pulitzer  and well Ya its self explanatory because it’s adorable! 

I have been forever looking for a dainty little cross necklace, very simple right? But it’s nearly impossible to find the right one, I adore this one from Dogeared .Even if you aren’t religious or not in the market for a cross necklace they have sooo many different charms and themes to pick from! Check them out!!

Soo I need some major help with books; I love love to read but I need help with suggestions on books to read. Honestly I just need a book to draw me in the first few minutes if not I probably won’t ever finish it. 

 

Okay sooo since I’m on a monogram kick I thought might as well add an adorable pillow into the mix! This pillow is from Swoozies  and you can customize them in the link above. This store has the most amazing gifts there! 

I’m also in the need of a good face wash, my face is combination/sensitive. Almost everything typically breaks/ dries out my skin and it is no fun. Any suggestions would be very helpful. 😜

  

Another adorable monogrammed item 😍 this one is from Marley Lilly! But guys I can’t choose which one because they are all so adorable! I also like this one and btw they are on sale now AND they are having a seersucker sale in two days. I also like this one that’s in the runnings.  

 

Okay that is it for today, later on this week I will be putting up a monthly favorites post because I will be going to San Francisco next weekend 😍😘

Xoxo,

Brittany

I’m alive!

Hey guys! So sorry that I’ve been neglecting my blog 😲 I’ve been all over the place with my schedule but promise to make a strong comeback. 

So here’s an update from my birthday! My mom is basically a birthday ninja and surprised me so much with the necklace from my monthly favorites wish list 😍😍😍 Thanks mom!! 

The little girl I tutor calls it my forever necklace because I need to wear it forever it is so beautiful she says!  The. I also have a ninja sister who surprised me with these amazing gifts from New York aka all of my favorite things {earrings from Laila Rowe, bagels from my favorite place in New York, black and white cookies and a beautiful porcelain jewelry dish} 

I am convinced I have the best family! 



Then my boyfriend and I went to the third street promenade and Santa Monica pier which was soooo beautiful. We finished the night up with some Puerto Rican food in North Hollywood 😍 all in all a successful birthday. I love you all! 😘



So I think I’m going to start a monthly wish list of things I would like to accomplish/ treat myself to?!  Be on the look out for that as well as a review on the new E.L.F. Skincare line!

Bitten by the carb fairy

Alas another morning waking up wanting bagels however I settled with some biscuits which seemed to do the trick momentarily. But I did not give up on my search for a decent bagel; the search got so in depth that I actually found a company that ship bagels, black and white cookies and crumb cakes to your house. 😍 My birthday is in a few weeks so naturally that is what I asked for for my birthday! bagel of the month club Anyways enough of my rant on food, I promise this blog will not be all about bagels! WERE MOVING WERE MOVING! So exciting! I cannot wait to start to decorate or start diy projects. My pinterest board is overflowing with cute things that I can’t wait to make. Stay tuned for more diy projects! Here’s what I’m thinking so far IMG_0747 IMG_0748 Let me know if you have anything you want to see on the blog in the comments below! Until we meet again! Xoxo Brittany

Gooood morning, good moorning it’s great to stay up late..

…Not! It’s actually noon here in California but I am still very tired. Finding a good {New York} bagel here is nearly impossibly. They all claim to be like the real thing but I suppose it’s true New York’s water does make everything better.

As I begin my search in bed for the best bagels on yelp I am getting seriously hungry. |Sidenote: have you ever rolled over to your significant other or whomever is in bed with you and just stared at them hoping that if you do it long enough they will actually wake up? | Well that’s what I am currently doing..however my eye daggers are not currently working HAHA! But such is life…

I ended up settling for Einstein bro’s bagels..sheer disappointment. Not like it’s a bad bagel place just not what I was hoping for in my mind.

Guys, it’s real I have a serious love for bagels, as well as desserts and basically anything carbs. I am going to pastry school so I guess it all makes sense.

Anyways since this is my first post {if anyone’s out there reading in the Internet world}. This blog is going to mainly be about different recipes, traveling, diy projects, and beauty/ lifestyle things. Hope you all enjoy!

Until we meet again!
xoxo
