I love to read. Whether its a novel, a children's book, a blog. I just love it. And when it comes to reading blogs, I can be picky so Ive compiled a list of a few of my favorite blogs/website to share with you all!
Planners & Lifestyle blog
Emily is one of my favorite social media people. Her profiles are all so cute, and her blog is super adorable as well. Ley is so well spoken and has some of the cutest kids on the block. She even has a book out that is for sale on her website and now at Target! But her website is one I check often for new posts and new ideas for organization and beauty things.
Beauty, Lifestyle, travel, food etc.

Zoe Sugg, an English youtuber, is actually quite famous and it is possible many of you already know who she is. But her website is another that I often check and keep up to date on. Her pictures are incredible, her baking recipes are delicious and her style is just so stinking cute.

Poppy Deyes (Who's actually friends with Zoe Sugg) Runs another super amazing blog. Her pictures are satisfying and her whole theme and style of website is minimalist and comfortable. Definitely one of my top favorites for inspiration for outfits and for blog post ideas as well.
I Waste So Much Time
I Waste So Much Time is a website that is seriously what the title says it is. For those who know me, know I love some good stupid humor and this website is always a good laugh especially when you cant take the negative social media in the world. So if you need a little break from so much seriousness, check this one out.
New York City, USA
Now this is a blog I love to always check in with. Its filled with fashion ideas at, get this, reasonable prices!!! If you love fashion, New York City, and good prices this is definitely a page you want to check out and get some ideas from!
So something I've talked a lot about is organization and my love for it. Sometimes though I get to the point where I'm almost over organized and I feel like its become unorganized and I totally stress out over it. So here is what I’ve been doing to fight that and make the most out of my Sundays.
Start with a list. Make a list of everything you want to get done on Sunday. Even things like "Throw away water bottle" Because once you complete the list of 10-20 objectives, you will feel extra accomplished.
1. Clean my room!
This is the first step in clearing your head. For me, having an organized room goes a long way and it just help set the mood for the rest of the day. Just clearing off the top of my desk, dresser, nightstand, and things like that really help just make things look good, and keep your surroundings organized.
2. Change The Sheets!
Every Sunday I switch my sheets and wash the other ones. I sleep SO much better with clean sheets, and That also helps make up for my lack of making the bed. (Maybe that's not true and I’m just telling myself that.)
3. Do Laundry!
Wash the dirty laundry you have and hang all the clean things! Put on some music and just do it. I’m the kind of person who will fish outfits out of my clean basket of laundry and doing this on Sunday helps!
5.Plan out fits!
Look at the weather and what you'll be doing for the week to plan the best outfits. Some weeks I stick to it, this week I haven't worn one outfits I had planned out. But It makes mornings easier and calmer when It's already picked out.
Whether is for health or just to avoid the stress of choosing what to eat. I will make a list in a notebook or in my phone of different food things that work best with each day.
Not just any shower, like a good long shower with all the shaving and body scrubs, and face masks and hair treatments, and teeth whitening. The whole Shebang. You will feel cleaner and ready to take on another week.
8. Set Goals!
I write out a list of things I may want to do that week. Like practice yoga, or workout, or watch a certain movie, or reorganize an entire drawer or piece of furniture. Set goals and follow through to feel productive.
BONUS: Fill you gas tank up in your car, clean out purse, clean out car, and even make a new music playlist for the week!
The other day my car broke down. I was not near my house when I turn a corner and giant crash underneath my car and a loud scraping sounds. I immediately pull off the road into an abandoned building drive way (not one of my better choices). Im sitting there, supposed to be meeting a friend for breakfast and panicking. I call my dad, then call my mom and then back and forth between the two of them trying to figure out where my directionally impaired butt is. Finally I figure it out, end up having my coffee in the bank across the street. This starts getting driven to work later that day and then picked up later that evening.
My mom picks me up, we go to get pizza which was weird because I hardly eat unhealthy foods anymore. So on our way home I see this weird bird in the road and as we get closer I see its a duck sitting up squawking. I tell my mom we need to turn around. We drop off the pizza, turn around and I see the ducklings down in the storm drain.
So it ends up with a bunch of neighbors and the upper half of my body down in the storm drain fishing out these little ducks.
All I could think is this is how God must feel. Hanging over us, trying to call us to him and yet we keep squawking down in the drain scared and panicked even though Gods right their trying to help us.
Anyways, I kept thinking how crazy it is that we have storm drain covers with holes this big. So I put on the mayor of my cities Facebook and within moments her and I are emailing about how we can fix this. I get in-touch with Mr.Neighbors about replacing not only the one storm drain cover, but changing the entire standard in the entire city. It felt so good to be able to help prevent things like this.
Everything in my day lined up to strangely for this to happen, and despite the expensive car repair, I would say it was well worth the opportunity.
Feel free to share this story with your local government to help prevent any situations like this from happening again especially in an area with so much wildlife.
