Daily Mantras // Peace + Productivity.

Happy Monday, friends!

I hope you're all as excited for this week as I am and I hope you woke up feeling refreshed and ready to get stuff done too. This week is going to be a chill week for me. I need to get my life in order and do things like: go to the doctor, organize my room, go through my closet and work on the blog. I'm super excited about blogging every single day in September, but first I need to do a lot of planning and make sure I have good content to put up everyday. I'm also back to volunteering - I teach English at my local church every Friday night. I had to take a break because of the exams I took last week, but now that that's all over I'm so excited to be back.

As for this week's mantras, I wanted to go back to productivity and peace. There's no point in working on being more productivity if that's going to cause you more anxiety and stress. So, I thought it'd be could to combine peace and productivity. Focusing on centering yourself and calming your mind throughout the day is extremely important, without that you won't be able to accomplish anything. So.. I'm excited. I hope you're excited. Let's go!
MONDAY // Focus your attention on the things you can control.  

TUESDAY // The best you can do right now is good enough. 

WEDNESDAY // Planning and organizing are not time wasted. 

THURSDAY // Honor the things you've accomplished so far and keep going. 

FRIDAY // What you give power to has power over you.

SATURDAY // Your body and your mind are your best tools to accomplish anything. Take care of them. 

SUNDAY // Even God took a break. 

Those are all the mantras I have for this week, guys! I hope you're able to apply them to your everyday life and I really hope they help you throughout the week. I wish you a smooth Monday and lots and lots of productivity. I pretty sure I've said this before, but take as breaks as you need, drink as many cups of coffee as you need but don't give up - good things take time, it's as simple as that. 

What's your favorite?!
Do you have any special mantras to share?!

Let's chat!

Thanks so much for reading and have a wonderful week!

I'M ALIVE // Life Update.

Heeeello, everyone! 

I really hope your week was a little better than mine.. If you're up to date with my IG stories, you probably already know that on Thursday I caught the flu the came from hell, I was coughing, sneezing every two seconds and I was in bed until today. I don't want to say that not eating meat is the cure to all your health problems, but this is the first time I've been sick ever since I stopped eating meat in January. I was having a pretty good run until my sister brought the virus/bacteria (I never know which one causes what) into our lives.  But I'm better now. I was in bed all these days and I could have blogger, but I don't like blogging when I'm feeling down. Instead, I used that time to read read read and my wrap-up for the #7in7Readathon is going to be glorious (check my TBR post here).

Anyway, I wanted to make this post to kinda update you guys on my life in general. I told you guys I would take this week to figure out what I wanted to do next and I think I've made a decision. I won't be going back to my regular job, that's for sure. Even my parents told me to quit and when you're decision is backed by your parents you know you're doing the right thing. I'm not quite set on what I want to do next. I think I'm going to try applying for master abroad. I need a break from my current life. I've been doing what I'm doing for years and I'm not happy. I don't have anything tying me down to where I'm currently living and I'd like to try something new. So, if you live in Europe and you love your city, let me know on the comments where you live, I could really use your help on this. I've traveled to Europe a lot of times and I've living in France for six month a couple of years ago, but I'd love to hear what someone who actually lives in Europe has to say.

I regards to traveling, I'm currently planning a trip to Europe. The dates are not set and I still haven't bought my ticket, but the plan is to go in October or November. I have a lot of friends living in Europe at the moment, like five or six and I plan on visiting as many as my wallet allows me too. Two very close friends are living in London (you check Adriana's post about living in London here), so I'll start over there. I've been to London before, but if you have any tips of cool places to eat let me know! I'm super excited for this trip and I can't what to go. 

As for my plans for the blog, since I'm currently unemployed, I'll be blogging everyday in September. I've talked about this before, but now I'm really sure I'll be able to do it. I planned out the posts and everything. I still haven't written them all, but they're coming. I didn't want to blog just for the sake of blogging, I can promise you I'm working very hard on these posts in order to make then interesting and entertaining. If you have any special requests, you can let me know and I'll work on it. And now that I'm feeling better, I also to get a jump start on the blog makeover. I really want to change the layout of the blog, make a new banner, spice things up a bit. Like I've said multiple times, I did everything you see on the blog. There was a lot of trial and error and I've blogged a lot of about it. You can see my posts about how to improve your blog design herehere and here, if that's something you're interested in.  

I think this is everything I have going on in my life at the moment! This was a very long post, if you sticked till the end, THANK YOU! I hope you're all having an amazing end of the weekend, with lots of relaxing and Netflix watching. I think I'm going a walk with my parents right now and then is back to reading - it's the last of the readathon and I need to watch Game of Thrones tonight!

Do you have anything planned for today?!
How was your weekend?!

Let's chat!

Thanks so much for reading and come back soon!

August 16, 2017


This is going to be super impromptu blogpost. As soon as I published my last post, I realized that there was actually a readthon going on this week. The 7 in 7 Readathon started on August, 14th and it finishes on the 20th. The goal is to read 7 things in 7 days, it could be a magazine, an article, a short story.. whatever you want! Since I need to work on my TBR, I'll be attempting to read 7 books and I'm so excited there's still time to join. So, I thought I'd share my TBR with you guys and the books I've already read so far. I'll obviously try to finish the books I'm currently reading and you can check them out on my last post, just click here. As for the rest of them, here we go! I'm so excited! 

Nights with Parker - Alice Tribue // I just finished this book this morning and I really really disliked it. To be honest, the only reason why I finished it was because it was short, the writing was easy to read and because I wanted to get a book in for this challenge. There's so much wrong with this book that I can even begin talking about it on this post, but I'll give a more in depth review later on the week. 

Murder on the Orient Express - Agatha Christie // I'm so excited for this book. I've never read anything from Agatha Christie before and that's weird because I love murder mysteries! I also really want to get to this book right now because of the movie. I saw the little teaser trailer and I loved it. I have high hopes for this one and I can't believe it took me this much read Agatha Christie.   

God Is a Woman - Michael Tavon // I got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review andI'm excited about it. I'm already a couple of pages in and I'm enjoying it so far, but we'll see how things go. It's an interesting plot.

How to Break a Boy - Laurie Devore // This book had me at first glance. Cute title, YA and adorable cover. It's been a while since I've read a YA novel and I have high hopes for this one! I've never read anything from this author.. From what I've gathered from her GoodReads profile this is her debut novel, so I'm excited! 

Hopefully, that's everything I'll be reading! You can follow them on their Twitter account here and you can also keep up with me on IG and my Twitter account. If you're participating on this let me know the comments so we cheer each other on and I'd love to check out your TBR! Wish me luck, guys! I love reading but 7 books in 7 days is a lot to take in even for myself.. 

Let's chat!

Thanks so much for reading and come back soon!
