July fav0rites


We got our HOUSE yesterday!!! We closed at 3:30 and cleaned til midnight (not that it was dirty, just want it move-in ready). Lots of cobwebs to clear out of the ceiling corners & sawdust on the counters from the recent remodel. We got almost all of it completed, so I’m sure we’ll be living there by next week. I can’t tell you how happy & excited I am to finally have this place we can call our own. I wouldn’t want it with anybody else but my sweet man, Justin (:

Celebrating closing

It was an exhausting day, but worth every ounce of effort and drop of sweat. I felt like it was all a dream, like I’d melt into a puddle from the stress leaving my body… we bug-bombed right after we got the keys, just to make sure anything creepy crawley that gets in while we’re moving stuff doesn’t stay alive and set up their home inside ours lol while that was sinking in, we had a celebratory dinner at Plaza Azteca accompanied by delicious drinks as they always have! So so so excited & happy! I can’t wait til we have everything in and settled so I can take ALL the pics to share with you guys (:

+ my tarot card for yesterday was like scarily spot on with “moving” or “getting a new house” which is pretty incredible…

More foodie stuff

Some other yummy faves from this month included homemade gluten-free grilled cheese made by my handsome chef BF, switching up my Starbucks order to an iced black & white latte with almond milk, more Mezeh Mediterranean meals, and going out for dinner & drinks at Mellow Mushroom for Fourth of July! I also added a pic of the gluten-free instant ramen Justin picked up for me cause I was proud of myself for trying something new…even though I didn’t like the flavor or texture at all LOL

Freedom ring

It wouldn’t be an American holiday without guns, right? Hahaha Justin took these hilarious photos of our Pepe frogs with some of his guns on the Fourth of July just for fun! I also took a quick pic of him doing a silly pose with his in its holster before we went out to dinner (:

Speaking of frogs

Our babies are always a favorite of mine, and I’m even more excited to have my kitties soon join them in our new house! Probably not for a few weeks so I know we’re settled and have everything they’ll need, but still very happy to have all my lovely pet babies together (:

The first pic is actually from Reddit ^ Justin had posted a photo of Misery that got a lot of attention, so much so that someone did a little artwork of our omniscient girl…


Even though I wasn’t feeling well, Justin got me in a hat and into his Spyder to take a cruise with the top down and lift my spirits earlier this month. His always thinking of me & making me the happiest girl in the world. We tried out some samples of It Cosmetics Bye-Bye Under Eye cream and really enjoyed the way it hydrated & renewed our skin! I also had such a wonderful time at the Italian Design event we were invited to (that I already posted about). Looking forward to attending the Lamborghini Day event at the same venue later in August…


ZEPETO is always updating and coming out with cooler stuff each time I open the app, it’s such a fun avatar-designing game. Recently they came out with an even better way to share your profile with others (increasing the social media aspect) by letting you create your own namecard! I made mine and also got my girl a fresh, new outfit for summer. I wish I could own some of the clothing pieces they have IRL lol I also found that Facetune2 has some neat features like lighting affects and neonFX. I may have gone overboard adding them to all of my profile pics & cover photos, but I think it adds a very pretty edge to a normal photo! I HIT 700 WORDPRESS FOLLOWERS THIS MONTH!!! I can’t thank you all enough for your constant support and kind words on this lil blog of mine (: it’s a fun way for me to express myself and share things that mean a lot to me. It means even more to me when others get enjoyment out of my posts! So thank you again x100 for following!!!

I hope you all have a fantastic week. Thank you again for reading & enjoy August โค
