6 Years With WordPress

Yesterday I received the following notification from the app:

I had registered this blog as a backup, and it’s since been where I’d write about my hobbies, beauty, and anything else I felt like sharing. I’m still trying to make posts when I can after falling off for a while. Until then, if you’re a follower, thanks for sticking around! Here’s to 6 more? 😂 We shall see.

25 Questions

Found this on a fellow blogger’s page and decided to answer them.  I’ve done something similar before with slightly different questions. Anyway, get to know a little more about moi.

 

1. Are you named after anyone?

Not that I know of.

 

2. What is the last thing you bought?

Chestnut Praline latte and  a bacon, gouda, and egg breakfast sandwich from Starbucks.

 

3. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

Yes. 😀

 

4. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Rarely.

I get jump scared pretty easily, so I prefer the latter.

Coachella Essentials: AKA How to Survive Weekend 1 or 2

Coachella is back again! I missed posting this for Weekend 1, but for those of you attending Weekend 2, it may come in handy.

R Cubed

Coachella will be upon us real soon! I’ll be returning after attending my first one 3 years ago (and again on Weekend 2), so I’m excited knowing that a good number of friends will be there as well. However you manage to prepare yourself for the festival, whether it be your first time or just another year hanging out in Indio, here are a few things to consider for the weekend.

1. First and foremost, don’t forget your wristband! This is your way in and out of the venue. I activated mine as soon as it was delivered. You probably should too. It’ll be one less thing to worry about while planning out the rest of your itinerary.

2. Stay hydrated – Water will be your bff, especially with the hot and dry weather that the area gets year round. Trust me. You can bring water bottles to the event…

Out of Hiatus (?)

Hi there! I’ve been out of the posting loop for quite some time now. Within the past month or so, I’ve been helping to ready both myself and my friends for our trip to SDCC this past weekend. The stress from preparation made me not want to focus on anything else, but I’m happy to say that this has been one of the more chill times I’ve had at the event. I can’t wait to share my experience with you within the coming week (I only say that because I still need to get settled with unpacking, catching up on sleep, etc. Who knows, it might be sooner. ). Until then, hope y’all are doing well. I still check up on your posts occasionally. 😀

4 Years with WordPress

Last week I reached 200 followers. I came across another blogging milestone a few days after when I got this notification.

I can’t say that I’ve spent these past 4 years actively posting on here, but I greatly appreciate the connections and followers I’ve met here. If I could do this on a more regular basis, I would. I do try to get content out there when I can, but I also want to make sure it’s of good quality. Here’s to 4 more!
