April Notes

168809-Goodbye-April-Hello-May

about a month ago i was stalking cutiepiemarzia’s channel on youtube. she started doing these monthly notes, where every months she would set about three goals and finishes them throughout the month. i liked that idea so i decided to start doing it.

my three goals for april were:

– write in my notebook at the end of the day. (about anything)

– read ‘its kind of a funny story’.

– clean out one of the drawers on my vanity.

writing in my notebook was fun, i did it for about a week and i stopped because laziness and i didn’t have time. the book was amazing, i suggest you read that book because it’s so.. relatable. (on some parts not everything). cleaning out that drawer was the best thing i ever did because i feel so organized now and i can find everything in it, not just a bunch of receipts from 5 years ago.

you should definitely start doing this, its fun to look back at what you did. thanks for reading. all the love. xx

 

What’s In My Purse

obviously this is not a purse but i have been obsessed with this back pack. it’s from Henri Bendel and it is a bit pricey, but such a perfect size to store all your essentials and random small pieces. i will show you what i pack in my purse for when i go to my beach house. (yesterday’s post, i talked about how i pack for my beach house.)

as you can see there a few items here and there. btw. my laptop does not fit in this bag, i just like to carry it around, just decided to add it in.

first thing is gum, i always carry gum around with me just in case i bump into someone, and i need to quickly freshen my breathe.

second are my sun glasses, i just need them, if i want to hide my dark under eye circles or the sun is bothering me. these are Henri Bendel as well.

third is my hand sanitizer, you just need to carry this around. germs are not my best friends.

fourth is my phone charger, i dont know what to say for this. what if my phone dies and i need to contact someone. (i currently dont have a portable charge but i just ordered one which should be coming soon.)

fifth is my pill box, the alarm would start ringing on my phone and i dont have my medicine with me. so its always great to have one. i got this from target in case you were wondering.

sixth are these two small notebooks. the pink one says, “sweet nothings” and its from kates spade. its basically where i put all my ideas, grocery, or just some random notes in it. the book with the two girls are also from Henri Bendel, it’s a calendar and it really helps me with organizing this blog. when to post each post and so on.

seventh, i love reading, as i mentioned in my happiness tag, so if i’m ever bored, i’ll just start reading. i still haven’t started reading this book. its called, darkness the color of snow.

i had to talk about this product alone. summer is basically here in kuwait which means oily skin for me. yay. anyway, i always have to carry these around, they’re oil blotting sheets. if you have oily skin and you never tried this exact one (not the colorful ones), then you definitely should because they’re my life savers.

this is what i have in my purse, (beach house edition) and tell me what your essentials are in general. i would love to know. all the love.

 

How I Pack

lets just ignore the bag that i have had for 16 years now. but it’s a great one, and its still in great condition and hold everything perfectly. anyway, in this post i’m going to briefly show you what i pack and some tips that i have.

(this is not for traveling, every weekend i go to my beach house with my family)

as you can see, theres not a lot of stuff. i have experienced over packing, and not packing enough. i think i finally figured out what i need and don’t need.

i only bring outfits for friday and saturday, (i live in Kuwait so our weekends start on thursday instead of friday, start the week on sunday and not on monday). for the friday outfit, i know not a lot of my relatives are going to be there, other than my parents and my brothers, so i just wear casual and comfy outfit.

for this friday- an oversized sweater and black jeans.

i know that i will be seeing my relatives on saturday so i like to dress up a bit so i’m going to wear a pretty dress with a casual jacket.

as you can see on side, my jewelry is also limited. one for each outfit. the silver choker is just for around my family and myself. (i love to feel pretty for just myself sometimes)

i brought two sweaters that will act like my pjs, and one legging. one sweater for friday and one for saturday. i also bring bras and underwear but im not going to show you that because, i, myself feel uncomfortable taking a picture of it.

i don’t wear makeup, only for special occasions of course. but i love to wear lipsticks. so i just bring one lipstick and some makeup wipes of course. the one that i’m bringing is the nars one. (i’ve talked about this specific lipstick in my favorite lipsticks post.)

if an emergency were to happen, i have extra clothes at my beach house so its all good. my face wash and moisturizes and all that, i have in my beach house.

as you can see, i limit myself, so when i come back home, i don’t need to unpack much.

hope you enjoyed. all the love. xx
