Photo Diary: Aquarium of the Americas

Hi, loves! My hubby had a meeting in New Orleans, so we decided we would make the most of it! As a family, we explored the Aquarium of the Americas. Hope you enjoy my photo diary!

Over the past year or so, minimalism has really intrigued me. Actually, minimalism can mean different things to many people. No, I have no desire to live in a camper with my entire wardrobe in my backpack. That’s not my idea of happiness or contentment.

However, the idea that living with less brings greater happiness is something that I believe and appreciate. We clutter our lives with stuff that takes time to organize, sort through, plan, clean, etc. Isn’t this the case with our wardrobes? Or our outfits? For me, it has been.

Typically, when I’m going somewhere and I’m not sure what to wear, I’ll do many things. Try on several dresses or outfits. When I’ve chosen the best look, I’ll try on different shoes and accessories to get it just right! Well, by that time, my room’s a mess, and I’ve spent maybe hours to arrive at the best look. :-(

I want to challenge myself to do things differently. I want to try a capsule wardrobe. Now, I’ve read several blogs that have taken on this same idea. I’ll link my favs here and here. Honestly, I’m afraid to do this because it requires that I get rid of stuff! :-( However, a closet full of things that I love that saves me time and headache is worth a try. 😀 Let me know what you think! Hope you enjoy this post. Much love.

Gone Green

Lately, my mind has been on green things. I wouldn’t be surprised if I subconsciously chose to wear this dress for that reason. On Friday, my doctor put me on the Whole 30 program. She explained why, gave me a brochure, and told me to come back in five weeks.

If you’re not familiar with the Whole 30 program, then I will put a link here for more info. I won’t get into all of the reasons why she put me on Whole 30 or why I was devastated. I plan to blog about this entire experience, so you will be getting all of that info soon. Needless to say, my mind has been completely on green things. Lots of salad, zucchini, avocado, spinach, and the list goes on.

Lastly, I got a new camera! Whoop whoop! I’ve been wanting a better camera but definitely not a bulky camera. I decided to go with the Sony A6000. I’m happy so far, but my hubby and I are still learning the settings and what works best. Please bear with me during this process. Hope you enjoy this post!

A Look Into My iPhone

Hi, loves! I have opened up my iPhone again for you guys. I have a few photos that I haven’t shared on my social media. Can you tell that I love going through the car wash? My baby and I always pretend like we’re somewhere else i.e. outer space or a disco party. Uh, yeah. The car wash is bomb! 😀 What do you think about a “What’s In My Bag Post”? I love those on YouTube, and I’m thinking about doing one here. Maybe…my work bag. Hmmm I’ll think on that. Look at my flower bed! Yep, my Charly and I planted those salvias and petunias. They’ve grown so much since these photos, and…so have the weeds. 😯 Anyhow, I hope you guys enjoy this post! imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage
