Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing a summer photo dump + where I’ve been! It’s been a few months since I updated the blog. I did publish a draft I had completed back before I took the unintentional break that I forgot about but this is my first blog post back. I didn’t mean to take a break. I never do but sometimes it’s just necessary. I did miss it and still had the mindset of I should blog this but never got a round to it. I explain more about life updates and what’s goin on with me in this blog post. So keep reading to see my summer photo dump + where I’ve been
Summer Photo Dump + Where I’ve Been
I’m happy to say I’m fully vaccinated. I got my first dose of the Pfizer dose on April 30 and then on May 13 I got the second vaccine! I was meant to travel back to Manila that’s why i got it but unfortunately I had to rebook the flight for a later date. I did end up traveling over the summer though so that will be in my next blog post coming on Friday. I got my shot with my dad at the Veterans Hospital in West LA so we both got it together. My arm was quite sore for a couple of days and I felt a bit tired but didn’t feel anything but that. Now a couple months later I don’t feel any different. I’m glad I got the Covid vaccine though and feel safe.
Unplugging & Enjoying Nature
The main reason I was gone was because I did a bit of traveling over the summer. I’m definitely sharing more photos from my trip soon but so far these are pictures that don’t have an assigned blog post to it. The places I traveled to had barely any signal for internet so my cellular data was terrible so I couldn’t really update any of my socials. I still did Instagram here and there but I’ve been enjoying the mountains. I did take lots of pictures of everything and my outfits for later on to share so that’s what these photos are. It was nice to get away from the internet for a bit and just write on my novel I’ve been putting off, read a book a day and just color on my iPad. If I wasn’t on my devices, then I was walking outside and enjoying the surroundings and taking it all in.
I do love patriotic holidays. I was still on my summer road trip so I got to have a BBQ in an RV park and enjoyed that. I did have a sprained ankle in these photos as I feel on some steps and twisted it so I was in pain but I manage to get these photos. I don’t know how I manage to do it but I love how they turned out. Also I feel like a patriotic cheerleader in this outfit. The last photo I saw a dog walking towards me and I got so excited and my dad took the picture at the perfect time. If you want to see more of what I did Memorial Weekend than you can watch here.
Fourth of July
As I said, I love my summer patriotic holidays and dressing up and taking pictures so of course I had to share what I did on Fourth of July this year. I went back to the same RV park again with my dad and his friend. I was pretty busy during this time but manage to celebrate by doing the typical activities you do on the fourth. It was fun and relaxing and of course had to wear two different outfits. It’s always so fun and I have the best time shooting pictures for this holiday.
| 2021 // 2020 // 2019 // 2018 |
Here are all my photos from my yearly tradition I do every year on Fourth of July. I labeled each year and it is so fun to look back on. I can’t believe the difference between 2018 and 2021. I feel like I was unsure when I got to LA and this year I’m quite confident and can’t wait to see what next year brings.
Summer Fun & Activities
I’ve been quite enjoying my “hot girl summer” and it’s been the best I’ve had in years. Though some moments haven’t been too fun I still have been enjoying. I go swimming at the pool almost everyday and if I don’t then I just go sit and read a book or chat with my dad by the water. I’ve been shooting photos so I have quite a lot to put out so that’s nice and I’ve just been trying to do things that make me happy. You will see more of my summer content I have done soon here on the blog so stay tuned for that.
Food, Fun & Favorites
With all the traveling I’ve been doing, I have to repeat a few outfits but it made me realize I have some fashion favorites. I can’t wait to share that with you. I’ve been trying new foods I never have before like going out to places I’ve never been to or tried. I also have been having fun with all the new things. I feel like I’m a new person. I’ve been quite confident lately too. I can wear a swimsuit out in public and not wanting to shy away or layer my clothes. I can’t wait to share my favorite swimsuits I have worn this summer so that’s a separate blog post coming soon. I’d never thought I would wear so many crop tops and feel good in them. So that’s been an update of how I’m feeling.
Lastly the most exciting news to share is that I’m moving! I recently moved out of my LA apartment and I’m heading back to my hometown where I grew. It’s something I didn’t think I would do but with all the traveling I did I thought to find somewhere new. I can’t wait to share more with you and the first moving vlog will be up on my Youtube channel here this Friday! You’ll find out more in the video and I’ll be doing more blog posts about it and maybe more home content too!
That was my summer photo dump + where I’ve been! I have so much planned and so excited for all the blog posts that will be up 3 times a week again. I had a lovely break but I’m back baby. Get ready for all kinds of different content from home updates to summer content and more. I’m so so thrilled to be back blogging again and sharing all the things I’ve been doing behind the scenes. So there you have it and I miss this so much so it feels great to be typing here again. I hope you enjoyed reading about my summer photo dump + where I’ve been! xo
