Woke up to the BEST NEWS EVER!!! 😱 🎉

10:20am – Breakfast + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 🍳 

S1E1 – Hotel Hangout

👁 Spotted: Alyson Stoner! We’ve all envied her dance moves since the early 2000s. I still can’t move like her. 😂

11:20am – Editing a video 🎥

3:20pm – Dinner + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 🍔 

S1E2 – The Fairest of Them All

👁 Spotted: Victoria Justice! Yes, it’s true. She was on both Disney Channel & Nickelodeon. GASP!

Another familiar Disney Channel face is Matt Winston; he played Hannah Montana’s fashion designer Fermaine. This time around, he was pageant host Tim.

5:15pm – Blogging + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 💻 

S1E3 – Maddie Checks In

5:45pm – Blogging + Stuck in the Suburbs 💻 

This is my FAVORITE non-franchise Disney Channel original movie. It stars not only Brenda Song & Danielle Panabaker but also baby Taran Killam. Yes, THAT Taran Killam from Saturday Night Live. 😮

Fun Fact: Drew Seeley cameos as David, the hotel desk clerk. It is believed that he was Jordan Cahill’s singing voice. His voice was also used for Troy Bolton in High School Musical (only the 1st movie).

8pm – Blogging + Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior 💻 

If you haven’t already guessed, today is all about Disney Channel queen Brenda Song. 👑

Anyone else have a HUGE crush on Shin Koyamada back in the day?? Since we’re on the subject, I’ll also admit to crushin’ on Justin Chon. *sigh* 🥰

Even though this movie is about a Chinese family, I think it’s important to note that Brenda is Hmong & Thai; Justin is Korean; & Shin is Japanese. 🇨🇳 🇹🇭 🇰🇷 🇯🇵

Final thoughts for the day: Yes, I did spend my day off from work working. But, it was raining, & I was watching Disney+ so I can’t really complain. 😂 I didn’t watch as many Suite Life episodes as I wanted to so don’t be surprised if it pops up again. Stuck in the Suburbs transported me right back to middle school squealing over the latest popstar sensation. I mean, I still wish Jordan Cahill was real. 😍 Ending the day with Wendy Wu has me feeling like a kick-butt warrior who could go out right now & save the world. Show me a villain! 💥 I’m off from work again tomorrow so buckle up for day 10. I see a princess or two or three in my near future. 👸

Life Update | August 2017

– C O F F E E –

This is a very important update so listen up: I rarely go to Starbucks anymore. G A S P ! ! The reason comes in individual serving size packets and pairs nicely with almond milk & ice. Have you guessed? I still drink Starbucks coffee but in the comfort of my own home thanks to Via Instant. I know that most people know about this product, but it has been unbelievably easy to enjoy frappuccinos on days when I can’t make it to my neighborhood Starbucks. In fact, I have become so obsessed that even when I’m presented with the option to go to an actual Starbucks, I choose my “homemade” frappuccino. How crazy is that??! My favorite flavor at the moment is Sweetened Iced Coffee.

My room is small so the arrangement requires a lot of creativity. I recently had an epiphany at work regarding how I could make it feel more spacious and homey. I am happy to report that my idea worked, and I vlogged the whole process. The three-day project was exhausting but worth the effort because I feel like I have officially settled in.

I’ve been trying really hard to post consistently on both my blogs. The balance was off earlier this year because I got a paying job helping a photographer maintain her blog. I have since settled in, and I think everything is back to normal. Here are my recent blog posts:

• Misadventures in Babysitting

• Dance of the Paints | Thomas Blanchard

I love blogging & vlogging, but it does require money which I don’t have a lot of at the moment due to my status as a sales associate. I’m not exactly breaking the bank with my checks! I recently discovered a brand new website that makes it fun & easy for subscribers to support their favorite bloggers, business, vloggers, etc. Here is my Ko-fi ( pronounced like “coffee” ) link ➡️ https://ko-fi.com/A3023728

Good news: I took part in BookTube-A-Thon 2017, my very first time doing so. Even though my camera broke on day 6 and I couldn’t continue vlogging, I did continue to participate by reading & interacting on social media. I had so much fun and can’t wait for next year! Bad news: I am in a terrible reading slump A G A I N ! ! I was in one before BTAT, and here I am right back at square one. I have the desire, but every time I attempt to read, I have to force myself to keep going. Reading is the ultimate getaway for me, and I hate being in this mood. I need to pull up my big girl pants and just do it. I’m in the middle of 6 books ( yes, SIX ), and I need to finish all of them because I have exciting books to read in October & November. I also need to make serious progress on my Goodreads reading challenge because I have only completed 26 of my 50-book challenge. Not bad but still not great. Cheer me on!!

I still hate retail. That’s pretty much it. 😂

I am counting down the seconds, minutes, hours, days, & months until my autumn vacation. I know I echo the rest of my family when I say we desperately NEED this trip.

⏰ Current Countdown: 1 month, 12 days ⏰

– W E A T H E R –

If you’re a loyal follower of my blog, you know my visceral hatred for the summer months. I love cold foods & swimming, but this season is the absolute worst. I do nothing but sweat and feel gross and uncomfortable. I would much rather be cold & snuggle up in blankets while wearing a sweater. Whether you like it or not, autumn is upon us. Even though it’s my favorite season, I am hesitant to get excited. California disappointed me last year by remaining unbearably hot until the end of the year. Please please please don’t let me down this year!! 🍂 😭 🎃

Lots of exciting news! Since my Charmed Aroma review video, I’ve been contacted by two more companies for reviews. I also have a major project in the works, something I’ve been planning for several months. I am slowly compiling products for a Bookish Gift Guide, a list of gift ideas for the bibliophiles in your life. I’ve already purchased two Jane Austen pillows and five candles inspired by A Game of Thrones, Edgar Allen Poe, Harry Potter, Romeo and Juliet, & The Princess Bride respectively. Before this video comes out later next year, there will be 1-2 review videos for various book-inspired candles; I plan to make this an ongoing series on my channel so suggestions are welcome. Last but not least, I mentioned earlier that my camera broke; thankfully I was able to replace it. The Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II has amazing quality, and I feel refreshed and excited for all the new content coming soon to my channel. Things are happening, and I’m going with flow. 🎉

| • I hope all of you have had a great summer. 🌞 I will be back soon with another post. 😘 • |
