It certainly is a Happy Friday for me because I am headed to one of my favorite cities, New Orleans for Mardi Gras! This is my first time experiencing the thrill of New Orleans during Mardi Gras, and I must admit that my emotions are filled with excitement and nervousness all at once. Ultimately, I am happy to be finally crossing this adventure off of my bucket list.
Since January, I feel like I have been going non-stop. I am in a huge state of transition in my life right now, and I constantly have to remind myself to take things day by day. It is easy to fall into frustration when it seems like you have a lot going on in your life at one time. Balance is crucial, and understanding how to find balance amidst the chaos that life sometimes brings is very important. Taking time for yourself, whether it be 20 minutes in the shower or a full day of relaxation. Planning a mini get away for a weekend or simply reading a book to relax your mind can all be a part of finding balance. Although my trip to New Orleans is not the ideal source of relaxation, I definitely appreciate a moment to get away from my normal schedule and spend time with my closest friends.
I’ll be turning 27 next month, which is crazy to think about! It’s not even the age honestly; I stopped caring about the number a long time ago. I am shocked at how fast a year went by because I still remember celebrating my birthday last year like it was yesterday. 26 was definitely a year of growth for me in various ways, as cliché as it sounds I learned a lot about myself. I can only hope that year 27 brings as much enlightenment if not more. As I said in the beginning of this post, I am definitely making a huge step in my life right now and although things seem rather hectic, this transition could not have come at a better time. If you’re reading this all the way through, I am sure you’re wondering what exactly I am referring to. In a few weeks I’ll be ready to spill the beans!
In the meantime, I have a couple brand collaborations coming up and some beauty product reviews for you all. I will also be doing a giveaway in the near future so definitely be on the lookout for what’s to come. I hope everyone has an awesome and safe weekend!
