25 by 25 | a 20 something’s bucket list.

bucket list malibu pier beach ootd

happy freakin friday, lovebugs! today’s post is kind of self explanatory, but i’ll give you a quick run down. i’ve always wanted to create this awesome, extravagant, detailed bucketlist that i would tackle over my next however many years…but let’s get real, i was not about to sit down and think of the ultimate bucket list and i always forget to add things to ongoing lists.

SOOO, i decided to do something a little more manageable and attainable. i’ve seen lots of 30 by 30 lists, but 30 is just too far away. my type A brain needs to be able to check things off a list a little quicker. LOL

without further ado here is a list of 25 things i want to do/accomplish/buy by my 25th birthday!

frills + thrills: JUNE

happy monday, yall!
i know we usually gripe about mondays. i mean, there’s about 5,000 different sassy sayings to back us up. but recently i’ve been taking a different mental approach to monday. why not choose to look at monday as a fresh start, a new battle to conquer or a new goal to crush, perhaps?
it’s funny, just the other day as i was driving to a coffee shop in downtown santa monica to get some work done, i passed a mural of abraham lincoln & his quote,
“most folks are as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
so this monday i challenge you to make your mind up to be POSITIVE. go put on your big girl panties, get yourself a strong cup of coffee & HUSTLE.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY FOR A GOOD DAY, YALL!
since we’re having a positive outlook on monday, i thought i’d share a little round up five frills & thrills i’ve been loving for the month of june. it’s been awhile since i’ve done a “frills & thrills” post, so if you’re new here i’ll clue you in! from now on at the end of every month (fingers crossed) i’ll be sharing five little frills or thrills (like things/places/activities/etc.) that have brought me joy in some way during that month. whether it be a new garment, a favorite coffee shop, website, or maybe some new dish i tried at a local restaurant.
( and yes, i know it’s 10 days into july…next month i’ll try to be a little bit more punctual. )
sooooooo let’s jump on in!

bar cart inspiration.

just sharing my latest obsession with y’all today.
i don’t really know why all of a sudden i wanted to create my own bar cart, but i do. maybe it’s because i’m 21 now or because my roomie just graduated and took hers with her. but all i know is that there is a bid empty spot in my living room that is screaming to be filled with something pretty.
i’ve pulled some of my recent pins for inspiration, and made a little collage of wishlist items that i think i want to use to style my own bar cart.
however, please note that these items are pretty inspirational and i’ll probably end up buying cheaper options off amazon. LOL ya girl is still ballin’ on a budget here.
