Coffee Chat: Volume 37

Thursday, May 03, 2018

1. I can't believe that it's already May 3rd! How is that even possible?! I turn 22 in 24 days. I'm not ready! 

2. Last weekend J and I went to a music festival up in Iowa. We ended up camping at the lake, which was really fun! And the lake was super pretty! I even got up on stage and sang harmony at the festival!

3. I have this annoying cold/allergy thing going on. It really needs to go away!! 

4. I want to get my nails done for my birthday, but I can't decide what I want to do! I love this ombre french look, but I also love the neutral pink color. What do you guys think? I know for sure that I'm getting the coffin shape nails.  

5. Been working like crazy on some new designs for my Zazzle shop! I'm really excited for all the new products that I'm working on! 

That's it for this post! Sorry it's so short! I hope you guys are having a great Thursday!! :)

Burt's Bees Waterless Shampoo For Cats: Review!

Wednesday, April 11, 2018
Bella and I are bringing you guys a review of the Burt's Bees Waterless Shampoo for cats! Bella loves to go outside and explore, which results in a very smelly cat! So when I saw this spray shampoo, I was very excited to try it! This shampoo spay has apple to nourish and honey for a shiny coat. It's pH balanced just for cats. It's also free of sulfates and colorants. 

It's super easy to use! Just spray behind ears to tail, gently rub into the fur, and towel dry. And I like to brush the fur after drying it. Bella really liked me using this product on her! She didn't mind me spraying her with it, and she quite liked the product getting rubbed into her fur. She's also a huge fan of getting brushed! 

Overall, I was really impressed with the Burt's Bees Waterless Shampoo! Bella and I give it five paws up! 

*The Burt's Bees Waterless Shampoo was sent to us (the cats and I) for review from Chewy. All opinions are our own!

Coffee Chat: Volume 36

Thursday, April 05, 2018

1. It's been a couple of months since I've posted on here. And I'm gonna be real with you guys, I haven't been motivated or inspired to post. I haven't been motivated or inspired to film and design. Every time that I sit down to write a blog post, I just stare at the screen. I try to type, and usually end up deleting what I've typed because I hate it. And with all the stress/personal stuff that I've went through since the end of last year/early this year, I'm just exhausted. I'm working really hard on getting back into the swing of blogging and filming. Starting with blogging first, then slowly going to get into the filming routine again. 

2. I've been obsessing over essential oils for like two years now, but I don't think I've mentioned them on the blog! I use the Plant Therapy brand. I currently have lemon, lavender, and peppermint in my diffuser. It smells so good! Trying to keep the stress levels down haha. 

3. I've been taking collagen supplements to try and help my hair. I was dealing with some really bad stress/personal stuff towards the end of last year, early this year, and because of that my hair was falling out. Like literally falling out in chunks. It was so scary! So I've been taking collagen, and it's helped my hair so much! My hair is thicker and definitely growing. My nails have been growing too, but I never do anything with my nails. I'm actually thinking about getting acrylics again because I just don't have time to deal with my natural nails. 

4. I need to update my blog template. I'm so over it! Time to go browse Etsy and see if I can find one. :) 

5. I have a pile of clothes sitting next to me on my bed that I need to fold and hang up. I really don't want to! UGH. Adulting is hard y'all. 

That's it for this blog post! I hope you guys are having a great Thursday! Thank you so much for reading! :)

Coffee Chat: Volume 35 (Road Trip Edition!)

Thursday, February 01, 2018

1. I know, it's been awhile since I've posted here on the blog. When I was out in Las Vegas and Phoenix, I didn't have access to wifi, which made working very difficult! J and I road tripped out to Vegas in November, and like the amazing blogger I am (*insert eye rolls here*), this post is now going up four months after our trip. Oops! 

2. The road trip ended up being about three days. We started out driving through Nebraska, which I didn't take any pictures in Nebraska. I was still half asleep, and so I mostly just drank coffee and ate doughnuts. After Nebraska, we headed to Wyoming. In Wyoming, we stopped and ate a burger with one of J's friends that lives out that way. Oh, I wish I could remember the name of the burger place in downtown Cheyenne! It was such a cute little place and the food was SO yummy! 

3. This was my first trip out west, and also my first time seeing mountains! I couldn't get over how beautiful the mountains are! While driving through Utah, we stopped at this rest stop that also had a lookout area. The view was seriously breathtaking! I literally took a million pictures at this spot. 

4. Day 3 of the trip was...interesting. We drove through Arizona for just a little bit, to get to Nevada. Right as soon as we crossed into Arizona, we heard a loud POP. J and I were both like, "What the heck?!" A tire blew out. We were barely five miles into Arizona, we could still see the Arizona sign from where we were pulled over. We weren't sure if this was a sign or just a weird thing that had happened haha. J got out and put the little doughnut tire on, and we drove for a little bit to find a Walmart to get the tire changed. Thankfully, we just blew a tire and it wasn't anything super serious, but it was still very frustrating! 

5. Let's talk about Vegas! First of all, I had SO MUCH fun there! It was a little overwhelming for this small town girl, especially on the strip and Fremont street. Looking at the lights was really neat. We didn't zipline or anything like that on Fremont street, just because this girl doesn't do heights! We got to watch and cheer on K at the speedway in Vegas. He got 2nd place, which was awesome! And then because we were out there around Christmas time, we got to go see Christmas lights around the Speedway, which was so neat!! OH and I got to see J sing in Vegas, which was so cool! Yeah, I guess you could say I had quite a bit of fun in Vegas haha! 

So that's my little catch up post. I am planning on filming and blogging more, so make sure you guys are following me on social media to know when I post! 

Hope you guys are having a great Thursday! 😊

Coffee Chat: Volume 34

Thursday, November 02, 2017

1. Y'all things have been crazy around here lately! I'm not complaining though. I kinda love the craziness. I just don't know where to start this blog post. I guess I'll start this blog post off with that my grandparents got puppies! Yes, puppies! Their names are Ginger and Gizmo and they are adorable! My grandparents adopted them from a local shelter. They were actually brought to the shelter, because their previous owners had to go to a nursing home. Gizmo has pretty serious separation anxiety from Ginger, so it just made sense that he went with her. Right now we're working on potty training, which definitely hasn't been easy. But they're doing better on going outside to potty. Ginger and Gizmo are both around a year old. 

2. J and I have been re-doing our pop-up camper. It was in major need of a makeover, the camper is literally as old as I am! So you guys can imagine, the style was just a little outdated since it's twenty-one years old. I don't want to spoil too much, because I would like to do a blog series on the remodeling process, but let me tell you the struggles we had with Rit fabric dye. For our curtains, we were really hoping for green. So we literally took their green dye, which was a nice evergreen color. Guess what color the curtains turned out? GRAY!?!? HOW??? 😐

I really have no idea how it happened. 😂

3. Halloween was this week! What did you guys dress up as? I ended up not dressing up for Halloween this year. Not really sure why haha. Also, we only had one trick or treater! Small town probs. 😢

4. I feel like I've been neglecting my blog, and I know that I've been neglecting my YouTube channel. I have a few videos to edit that I'll be uploading soon. Really going to try to get back into the YouTube routine. I feel like it's going to be harder to film and upload, with us traveling so much, but really going to try. I can't wait to share with you guys our travels here on the blog!

5. I feel like there was a lot more that I was going to mention in this blog post, but my brain is just not working right now haha! 😂 If I remember, I'll do another blog post with updates and such. 

Hope y'all are having a great Thursday!
