Good Will shopping trip 1/12/2019

My friend and I went on a somewhat spontaneous shopping trip to the Good Will but first we got some coffee then we were good to go !  It was a Saturday so it was very busy and it took awhile to find to get shopping cart. By the time we did get a cart we both had already picked out some books and I had found a cute Lion King plush toy with the original Disney Store tags . I also found a Disney Princess picture frame . After we got a cart we moved on to the clothes where we found some great things that we were excited to wear ! It was a successful shopping trip and we had a fun time together . I love shopping at the Good Will and I’m excited to see what I find next time .

My essential oil diffuser !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m happy to say that I’ve already been making some progress with some of new years goals ( you can read them here ) including finally setting up my essential oil diffuser ! I’m excited to tell you about it , here we go !

 

My essential oil diffuser !

 

I got my essential oil diffuser from Amazon. There are many different styles to choose from with a pretty wide range of prices . The one I chose is cone shaped and it changes colors . It has been sitting in my room for a while but today I finally got it set up. I’ve mentioned before how much I love lavender ( you can read about it HERE) so of course that was the first oil that I put in my diffuser . As soon as I turned the diffuser on it began to fill my room with a wonderful relaxing  lavender scent . I also loved the changing colors it was a fun touch . Before long my room was a lavender paradise ! I’m excited to try other oils in my diffuser as well .  I’m also excited to use this diffuser more and more to help me relax .

Living the bucket list life

Hello, My bucket list friends ! When posting on social media I sometimes use the hashtag bucket list life but what does that really mean ? I thought it would be a good idea to take a further look at this and also to give all of you some suggestions on how to live the bucket list life on a average day .

 

Living the bucket list life

 

To me Living the bucket life life is more then just crossing items off your bucket list, It is an attitude or maybe even a life style . To me a bucket list is not just a list of things to do in your lifetime. It’s the idea that life is really meant to be lived to the fullest .Let’s face it all to often our lives become a retinue of the same things over and over again. We get stressed and grumpy and we often forget to take time to do the things that we really enjoy, the things that make us smile and help us to truly love life . So how do you live the bucket list life ? Simply put you take time for you and the people and things you love . It’s about trying to mix up your routine to keep life exciting ! Yes, I’ll be honest some days are not that great and that’s OK. Living the bucket list life is not a solution to all of life’s problems but it is a way to make life a little happier .  Below I’ve listed a few ways on how to live the bucket list life !

Try something new – Instead of getting the same thing for lunch try something new or wear clothes that you haven’t worn in a while mixing things up just a little bit will add a little bit of excitement to your day .

Do at least one thing you love everyday – It could be something as simple as watching a show you like or listening to your favorite playlist or setting some time aside for a hobby you enjoy like drawing or dancing . Taking time to do something you love will add a little boost of happiness to your day .

Day Dream – OK, I know it sounds a little silly but seriously instead of repeating your to-do list or thinking about all the bills you have to pay have a little fun with your thoughts ! Think about what you want to cross off your list next , your favorite memories , the best vacation you’ve even been on , or the trip you want to take next . Taking some time for positive thoughts will help to put you in a positive mood even if your not crossing an item off your list that day .

 

I hope you enjoyed reading my tips for living the bucket list life ! Have fun crossing off items everyone !

January 2019

Kohls –  I got a Kohls gift card for Christmas and I was excited to get some new clothes for the new year ! I have to be honest though I was kind of disappointed with the sales at Kohls. Even the items that were marked down were still on the pricey side . I went to the clearance racks and I was able to find some things that I loved ! My favorite thing that I got is a shirt with stars all over it I also got a new pair of shoes for an amazing price . clearance is the way to go !

 

 

Good Will –

After Kohls I went to the Good Will I  got three pairs of pants some shirts , a Twilight Sparkle Equestria girl doll , a book and a Disneyland shoot glass from the year 2000 ! I’ve already worn one of the shirts that I got !

Exploring Pigeon Point

Hello ,my bucket list friends !On Dec. 29th 2018 , my parents and I took a day trip to Pigeon Point . It was a great adventure and I’m excited to tell you all about it , here we go!

 

Exploring Pigeon Point

Pigeon point is a beautiful ocean side spot that is known for it’s lighthouse. Currently work is being done on the light house so it’s closed but I still got some great pictures of it. One of the first things we did when we got there was walk down a little trial to the beach . It was a beautiful sunny day and the beach was gorgeous ! I had a great time on the beach walking around and taking pictures . There were beautiful seashells all over the beach .After spending some time on the beach we went to go explore more of Pigeon Point. We walked around the area where the light house is and took in some great views of the ocean. There was also a little museum with some information about the area and a huge prism in the middle of the room .In another building there was a gift shop I got some fun things to remember the trip by. Overall it was a fun and beautiful place that is worth seeing .

New years goals 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends. It’s a new year, so that means it is time for some new goals . This year I’m hopping to focus on reducing stress and reducing debt . I also have a few smaller goals that I want to accomplish this year. So let’s get to it

 

New years goals 2019

Decrease my dairy and sugar consumption

When it comes to my diet there are two things that stand out to me . Number one wanting to move towards a vegan lifestyle and number two wanting to decrease the amount of sugar that I’m eating . I have a feeling that 2019 is the perfect year to start these changes .

pay off two of my three credit cards

I have three credit cards that need to get paid off . A similar item was in my goals last year but  I did not succeed so I’m looking forward focusing on decreasing my debt this year

Get a day planer and use it

I got one of Christmas and I’ve already started using it so I’m off to a good start

Use my essential oil diffuser

I got one a while ago but I haven’t set it up yet. Essential oils are great for reducing stress and that is one of my main focuses this year.

Get back in to WWE

I’ve been a WWE fan for many years but when I went to massage school  I stopped watching it and I haven’t got back into it yet.  I want to go back to being the WWE fan I used to be .

Use twitter more often

One of my bucket list items is to tweet 10,000 times so I need to step it up . I also want to live tweet during WWE shows like I use to.

Use coloring for stress relief

I’m going to do my very best to reduce stress this year and coloring has helped me in the past I just need to do it more often .

Get to my goal credit score

This year feels like a good year to get this done !

Cross 12 things off my bucket list this year

A dozen items in one year ? sounds like a great challenge to me !
