Cult Gaia Ark Bag

Cult Gaia Ark Bag

hey all!

i am not sure if you are following me on instagram or not (if not you are missing a ton! follow me here!) but i recently posted a photo of my new cult gaia ark bag! i was fortunate enough that my sister was able to come across the bag for me and cannot be more grateful for the gift for me because i had been absolutely obsessing over it – i mean its even my phone background (you can download mine here!) – so since i am so obsessed with my cult gaia ark bag i wanted to share my favorite photos i have taken yet of my ark bag!

here we go!

besides how cute it is, the bag is totally easy to carry – and allows you to carry less items – because you can see through the purse, and you would not really wanna carry a ton of things – along with the sheer size of the purse is truly not very big.

the ark bag has been named the ‘bag of the summer’ – i can totally tell why because its totally got a summer picnic feel.

the cult gaia ark bag was modeled after a japanese picnic bag and the straw and basket bags are truly coming back into style these days – i especially love this j.crew one and this mariella vilar one.

May Month in Review

May Month in Review

hey all!

we are now taken to the end of may! i cannot believe it! its the last day, today i have a math final today – so wish me luck! i am happy and sad may is over – because my birthmonth is now officially over, but school is also over! i am mostly sad because in a few days all of my senior gals are graduating and officially leaving the days of high school and headed to their prospective colleges – believe me i am happy because of their success, but i will really miss them next year and that also means my class (the class of 2018) takes our role as seniors!

here we go with the month in review!


as you all should know, i had my 17th birthday! the year was all kinda a crazy whirlwind, i cannot believe i am 17 and i often still even tell people that i’m 16! it’s crazy! 


my sister went on a overseas trip and came back within this month! she had an amazing experience from what she had told me thus far. i am glad she came home safely and with great and intresting new experiences. 
 i went on a hike with some old and new friends on one of the hottest days of the early summer so far, it was so hot but once we go i makde it all worth it!


 i got new artwork done and am working on more for the summer! 

i hope you enjoyed this little post! i mean besides my birthday, this month was filled with a ton of studying and prep for the end of the school year which is not too off now!

Super Summer Series: Reading List

Super Summer Series: Reading List

hey all!

happy thursday!

i cannot believe its already may 25th and man i have finals next week! but once i am done with finals i can relax and start reading! speaking of reading, today i wanted to share my summer reading list picks – what i want to read, or what i am reading along with their amazon links which if you wanted to, you could purchase the books!

lets get started why don’t we!

#1: big little lies by liane moriarty

613_1024x411.jpg

the book that the hbo show featuring reese witherspoon and shailene woodley was based on. okay, so my sister made me start watching the show, and she left – along with her HBO password – on a trip so unfortunately i am stuck on the second episode. NO SPOILERS! but i have really wanted to read the book because the show – even though i am only on the first episode – is so good! i am very much looking forward to finish watching it so i can read it!

#2: almost adulting by arden rose 

ALMOSTADULTING.jpg

arden rose, one of my favorite beauty and lifestyle vloggers to watch on youtube came out with this book earlier this year which is called almost adulting. arden writes a candid guide of different things you may experience as an adult like making internet friends and making sure you are eating enough protein! along with its cute cover, this looks like an interesting and an educating read!

#3: rich people problems by kevin kwan

rich-people-problems-cover-052017-1495036437.jpg

the 3rd book of kevin kwan, following his popular books crazy rich asians and china rich girlfriend (both of which i have read & highly suggest reading if you have not yet) comes this book, rich people problems, following the story of a family who is in a crazy fight over land while their grandmother dies – leaving a large plot of land behind her. this book looks so good and i am so excited to read it!

#4: the handmaid’s tale by margaret atwood

thehandmaids-tale.jpg

so, i have read this one before but i am reading again for my ap lit class which i will be taking in the fall. i am in love with this book and if you have seen – or haven’t yet seen (i am so excited to watch it but i am waiting still school gets out) you should read the book. especially if you are a dystopian fan or liked 1984 or brave new world, the vibes are totally similar but – in my opinion – the handmaid’s tale is more relatable because its a story of women, rather than men.

#5: blink by malcolm gladwell

blink1

via* 

in my ap lang class at the end of the year – like two weeks ago we had book presentations on a free reading book in which we picked, one of the girls in my class picked blink. when she started talking i thought the book would be boring because – hello its non-fiction! but while listening this book seems interesting and something that i want to learn about! blink basically explains how we, humans, think without thinking, crazy i know but i am so excited to read it!

i hope y’all enjoyed my post today – if you have read any of these books, or are interested in reading these books, comment down below so we can start a little book club conversation!
