bullet journaling

So I found something new, it's bullet journaling. I bought an Erin Condren Life Planner at the beginning of the year, you can check out my post about it here. I stand beside everything I said, but I think I found something that works better for me, or something I enjoy more. I was in a youtube fest, just watching random videos and somehow stumbled upon a bullet journaling video. I fell in love with the concept. It's a very creative way to organize your life and thoughts and keep records of things. It's really simple to get started all you need is a notebook and a pen and you are good to go! I'm going to link some of my favorite videos i've found of bullet journaling so you can learn more about it if you are interested. And here is the link to the founders website, where you can also find out information on bullet journaling.

Yummy Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle

I get these random urges to bake from time to time and so one weekend I chose to make a chocolate peanut butter trifle. I love anything with chocolate in it, and add peanut butter in the mix and that's an amazing combo. One of the first things I ever made was a death by chocolate dessert which was just cool whip, chocolate mousse and brownies. Most trifles call that you use pudding, but I absolutely hate pudding so I substitute the mousse for the pudding. The recipe I used for this desert called for pudding as well, so again I substituted it for chocolate mousse. The recipe was a little hard to follow, When i was making the whip cream I added the powdered sugar in there, when it was supposed to go in the peanut butter and cream cheese. I would suggest using half a cup of powdered sugar in the whip cream and not a whole cup, unless you want really sweet whip cream. Other than that the recipe was really great! Here is a link to the recipe if you would like to make it yourself!

Should you upgrade to the iPhone 7 this year?

Every year Apple excites the world with new iPhones, and this year even though it hasn't been announced the world is expecting the release of the iPhone 7.  I am one of the biggest Apple fans ever, but I won't lie the past releases of iPhones just don't excite me as much as it used to in the past. Now it's time for the iPhone 7 release and again, it's not an exciting release for me. In all honesty this might be the most unexciting release ever, probably only a little bit better than the 4c's. Here are the big features that are allegedly going to be on the iPhone 7.

  1. No Headphone Jack - that's right, there will be no headphone jack on the iPhone. So get ready to buy wireless headphones from now on. I get how that can be exciting for some, but for me its meh...there was no wow factor. Even though working out should be easier now that I won't have to worry about a wire.
  2. Pressure sensitive home button - that's the new feature that I read about, instead of clicking like iPhone home buttons do now, there will be a vibration to tell you how much pressure you are forcing on the home button. That seems like a cool function to me.
  3. Two camera lenses - there are going to be two camera lenses on the new iPhone. Both lenses will capture colors differently and then merge the two photos into one. Seems like a good way to get better photos but from the mock ups of what the new iPhone is going to look like, The lenses don't look visually appealing. 
What i'm hearing about the new iPhone is very underwhelming. If you need a new iPhone of course I suggest that you go ahead and get it. But other than that, if you don't absolutely need one, I suggest you hold off till next year. Hopefully apple will get it right then :/

My Fitness Journey!

I have so many journey's I'm going on this year and here is another journey i'm starting and that's fitness. *Spoiler alert* I have already failed, but I'm restarting it again. I have many reasons why I'm doing this fitness journey but the main one is for my health. I've been feeling very fatigued lately and I definitely need to do something about it. I haven't had any real fitness goals yet. I was going to the gym three days out of the week, I think i'm going to up it to four days one week and the next week three days. I need to find other things to do to keep me motivated. Recently, i've slacked tremendously by not meal prepping and not going to the gym at all. So I need to find things to keep me excited to workout. What are some things you do to keep yourself motivated for working out?

Milo Update!

Pray for little Miley :(

Milo has been walking around with a hurt knee for about a week now :(, after multiple vet visits we've come to believe that maybe his knee is popping in and out of it's socket. He's now 1 year and 2 months old and he's a really playful cat. He loves to jump around and i'm thinking that's how he hurt his knee in the first place. Other than that he's just as cute as always, and he's a little extra cuddly now that he's not feeling too well. He loves to eat, and play with his doll, I call her mabel and she is seriously his best friend. He still loves biting me, just not as much as he used to..ugh.. Other than that I love my little kitty and I hope he gets better soon! Here is the last milo update if you want to check out other posts about him.
