Beach Time!

So recently I went to Gulf Shores, Alabama with some of my closest friends and it was great! My friend is getting married/ by the time this is posted has already gotten married and we took a little girl trip to the beach before the big day.

I haven't been to the beach/ on vacation in years! To be honest, i'm very much a homebody so even though I was looking forward to it, part of me didn't want to leave my cat. Now if you are a young girl, around my age, you would probably prefer another beach because there wasn't much to do in Gulf Shores, but we had fun chilling on the beach and we went to Orange Beach to do fun activities.

Overall, it was a nice weekend getaway, and I can't wait to get back to the beach again!

The Early 20s

I'm 22 years old, i'll be 23 next month,

I've feel like i've lived a lot of life and I actually haven't. Growing up I always looked forward to my twenties, I thought I was going to have an exciting life going places, trying new things etc. Don't get me wrong I definitely do those things but it wasn't the picture I had in my mind. Nobody told me that I would have extreme moments of feeling confusion, disappointment and straight up depression. Most of that I put on myself because especially a couple of years ago I definitely was comparing myself to others and my foundation was not strong at all. Those things happened, and I hear it's pretty common. But through those hard times, I started to dig deep and soul search and started to actually find myself. I'm not perfect, I don't have my life figured out and i'll definitely have to go through more hard times in my life, harder than the ones i've gone through so far. I know what will get me through those things is actually knowing my worth and my faith in god. For those of you going through it with me, or about to enter, just know that we aren't supposed to have it all figured out. We are still getting to know ourselves let alone have everything figured out. Have fun, try new things, take risks, learn about yourself, learn about life, read books the informative and fun ones, and be the best version of yourself you can be. Life is tough, but one thing you need to do is be easy on yourself, love yourself, love others and enjoy every second of life that you can!

New MacBooks!!

The new MacBooks are here!!!

I'll be honest, these laptops aren't my cup of tea. I would recommend them to someone who doesn't need an actual laptop but just something to surf the internet on and do light work. Here's why:

  1. There is no USB port or memory card slot. I have no idea why they won't put at least one usb port on the computer  but apple is still refusing. 
  2. No Mag - Safe charger- something that I love about Apple Computers, and this one does not have it. I love that my macbook pro has the mag safe charger. So I dont have to worry about snagging the cord or damaging my computer somehow.
  3. No HD Camera - its kinda petty, but it needs to be said with the price tag and what other models have that this lacks
Here are just some of the things that I don't like about it. I will say if you need something for traveling, surfing the internet, and doing small tasks then this one is for you. Plus it comes in the new Rose Gold color. The actual computer is very aesthetically pleasing. But overall, I don't think it's worth it to dish out that much money for something that doesn't have basic functions. You can check it out in more detail here, and here is a video from one of my favorite apple vloggers that gives you more info.What are your opinions?

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers Review

*sorry i've been M.I.A. I've been on a little vacation but i'm now back to normal programming*

So I had heard about this book a long, long, time ago by one of my friends and never checked into it for myself. Recently, I decided to give it a try and I DID NOT REGRET IT! It's set in California in 1850. The main character is Angel and she is a prostitute, that has gone through horrible situations in her life. She meets a man, named Michael and he's convicted to show her a better life than the one she's used to. The story Redeeming Love goes through their ups and downs, and if Michael ever truly gets the girl...

This story is fantastic, it has a christian theme throughout the book, but even people who aren't christian would enjoy the plot. This book reminds me of how we are supposed to love others unconditionally. I found myself getting emotionally attached to book, more so out of anger than any other emotion. But nonetheless I was still emotionally attached haha. This is a fun and easy read and I suggest everyone read it!

A reading challenge for myself is to find a book that will make me cry, that has not happened yet and I feel like I'm getting cheated out of a great reading experience lol. Shameless promo, I have a goodreads account, where you can see what book i'm currently reading and how far i've gotten into it, plus I rate the books I read there too.
