/via/
Yay! Another post sharing some links!! I'm not going to lie my motivation behind when I decide to post one of these is I usually stumble across one thing I want to share then scramble around to find some other neat things. Soo, yeah. Hope everyone out there had a great week and is ready for the long weekend! I for one am so ready for fall! Very much ready for jeans and leggings and fuzzy sweaters and sweatshirts omg. In the meantime while I try to patiently wait here are some fun things to browse!

So this is the reason for this post, the Hailey Baldwin (Bieber), Princess Diana pictures. They are amazing and everything at the same time.

So I saw this Madewell sweatshirt on an Instagram ad the other day and kinda want it for one reason. I used to be obsessed with this Gameboy Advance game (whoa) called Harvest Moon growing up so when I saw this I was like omg. I just don't really have $75 to spend on a sweatshirt rn though... sad. lol.

This sweatshirt is so cute too!

Speaking of shopping related things I've been eyeing this bag for fall, it's so cute!!

For a girl who hates heels this article about flat shoe trends is a dream.

Making these cookies this weekend.

This dreamy Marine Serre Fall/Winter collection.

So I've been trying (and failing) to be on Instagram less recently, but here's an interesting article about stopping looking at your phone before bed.

Thanks for reading!!

Happy August! Been trying to get back into the hang of blogging again, so I of course have to make one of my beloved links posts! I don't know what it is about these but I just love them! Anyways I can't believe it's already August! Summer has seriously flown by! It has been a good and weird summer all wrapped up in one. But these past couple weeks have been busy traveling around and I've spent a lot of hours in the car.

It's officially August which means it's now "Bad Summer"

Explanation of enneagrams, apparently I'm not the only one confused by them. I took a generic quiz awhile ago and was somewhere between a 6 and a 9 and I'm honestly still not quite sure which fits me best...

A list of some fancy cafes.

This interesting read with beauty writer Mi-Anne Chan.

As someone with "medium hair" here's some medium hair inspo.

I've been trying to get back into bullet journaling and here's a simple spread to increase your productivity.

If you're in need of some new phone wallpapers these from Poppy Deye's are so freaking cute!

Speaking of Poppy Deyes I loved her quick little post on how to avoid feeling overwhelmed.

I'm going to London soon-ish and here's a guide to London's best bottomless brunches!

Postcards from Kauai, HI

I went to Hawaii back towards the beginning of the summer and man, Hawaii is a place. It wasn't my first time to Hawaii but each trip is just as breath-taking as the time before. But this trip in particular was special because we finally went back to Kauai. We spent a week in Kauai and then a week in Maui, but the week in Kauai is the important part.

Kauai was the island I went to on my very first trip to Hawaii and it was where I fell in love with the place. But on all my other trips to Hawaii (nbd or anything lol), until this year, we mainly focused on Maui taking a few short trips to Oahu and the Big Island. But I have been dreaming about Kauai since that first trip and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

Anyways today I wanted to do a simple post sharing a few snapshots from my trip because Kauai is stunning and it will forever be my favorite island. There's something about it that I just love, I mean it is called The Garden Island for a reason. The whole place is just l
ush and green with the most stunning mountains, called the Na'pali Coast, right off the ocean. Also there are wild chickens! It is a bit less populated and touristy than places like Maui and Oahu but that's just part of it's charm.

Also the quality of these photos are all over the place, some of them were shot with my phone and some with an actual camera. It is a bit cringy for me seeing them all right next to other, so just to warn you.

Thanks for reading!!
