As the second half of 2015 starts I've also decided to start my own main channel and I filmed my first ever video yesterday, with the topic being my June favorites. So if you would like to watch the video form of this and hear my personal opinions about them, it would mean so much to me if you watched it on my channel and gave it a big thumbs up. Half of the year has gone by, and I am so blessed to have accomplished so much. I have so many things planned for my new main channel, and I hope you enjoy it and subscribe for more of the things I will be posting in the future.

We Started A Collab Channel?!

It's official. One of my best friends, Tiana, and I decided to start a collab channel. YAY! I'm so excited to be able to create videos and try to bring joy to others, while at the same time have fun and grow closer with Tiana.

We just posted our first ever video which is the "3 Second Thoughts Challenge." I think it's safe to say that we both had an amazing time filming that video. From abs to pineapples, we share the first things that come to our mind when we hear those words. With that being said, if you would like to watch it (which would mean so much to me), I will leave a link to the video down below, and I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you so much for reading (oops, I almost put watching there lol). Until the next post. Never forget to be you! :)

Bath and Body Works Haul

SALE! $5 ONLY! 50% OFF!...These were the words that lured me in. It wouldn't hurt just to check it out and smell some of their new fragrances, right?...Hehehe, well that wasn't the case for me. After entering the Bath and Body Works store and seeing some of my favorite summer scents in stock together with the new ones, I just couldn't resist buying a few things both for myself and as gifts (but mostly for gifts, lol).

The first thing I bought was the Watermelon Lemonade hand soap. I absolutely love the smell of the candle I bought in this scent last year and once I saw that there was now a hand soap version of it, I automatically knew that I had to get it. This may just be my perfect summer scent.

Next, I decided to get the Sweet Magnolia & Clementine scent in a body scrub and body souffle just as a little something for my mom and give her something just out of the blue. The smell of this is absolutely amazing and sweet, ironically words that can also be used to describe my mom (hehe <3)

As I went further into the store, I found the Love & Sunshine bubble bath and body wash and I instantly fell in love with its cute packaging. Luckily, this scent also smelled amazing and I felt that it matched perfectly with one of my friends who was having her birthday party this past weekend so I decided that I would get it to add to my presents for her.

Lastly, with Father's Day literally a few hours away from the time I am writing this, I also bought these two hair and body wash products for my dad. I've been getting this for him almost every Father's Day and he loves these scents so much that he's used up every bottle that I've ever bought for him.

What did you get for your dad this Father's Day? I would love to hear about it in the comments below, because let's be honest here, shopping for dads and boys in general is pretty hard, haha. Thank you so much for reading. Until the next post. Never forget to be you! :)

P.S. If you want to see the vlog I made of the day I went shopping and bought these things, then I will leave the link down below, together with a link to my channel. I hope you enjoy and decide to subscribe for more because I will definitely be getting better at it. Thanks!

Family Day at the Beach || Kailua Beach Park

This past Thursday, my parents didn't have work since it's a holiday here so we planned out a whole day of family bonding time. After eating breakfast at Boots and Kimo's and watching a movie, we went to the beach and I just wanted to share with you some of the pictures I took. From the soft sand to the clear, blue waters, we had so much fun swimming around and spending time with each other.

Coincidentally, Camila from Fifth Harmony was also there and right as we got out of the water we saw her standing right in front of us. It was pretty cool to finally meet someone famous since there are so many of them coming to Hawaii. She was so kind and sweet, I felt kinda bad for bothering their mother and daughter time for a picture but she was so nice about it. This was actually the first time I ever asked a celebrity for a picture (yay for baby steps hahaha).

I hope you enjoyed all of these pictures. What are some things you've been doing this summer? Did you meet any celebrities? I would love to hear about it in the comments below. And if you would like to see the vlog I made of this day, then I will like the video down below together with a link to my channel. Thank you so much for reading! Until the next post. Never forget to be you :)

Boots and Kimo's

Fried rice omelette, with extra fried rice
Shrimp Alfredo Omelette with hash browns
Regular Pancakes with Coconut Sauce (and we also got a banana pancake which I forgot to take a picture of)
After tasting food from Boots and Kimo's as take out during a sleepover I had with my friends, I immediately knew that I wanted to visit the restaurant and eat there again. My family and I visited this restaurant today, and our 45 minute wait was definitely worth it. Packed with both tourists and locals, Boots ad Kimo's is surely an island favorite.

We got two different omelettes. The first was a fried rice omelette and the cravings I've been having for fried rice everyday have finally been satisfied. The other omelette was a shrimp alfredo omelette which I was a little skeptical about first but after tasting it, it automatically became one of my favorite dishes from there. As for pancakes we got regular pancakes and a banana pancake, both covered in macadamia nut sauce. Not really being a pancake kind of person, the sauce really made it's taste a thousand times better than it already was.

If any of you are ever coming to Hawaii on vacation, I would definitely suggest Boots and Kimo's as one of the restaurants you go to for that breakfast grind, since they do serve breakfast the whole day. What are some of your favorite breakfast foods? I would love to hear about it in the comments below. And if you're feeling bored and want to watch some youtube videos, it would mean so much to me if you clicked the link down below and check out the vlogs I've been making for everyday of summer. Thanks for reading. Until the next post. Never forget to be you :)

Empties #1

Sometimes looking for the perfect product that you just love so much you finish it in a matter of weeks is hard. So here are two things that I've used up to the last bit.

First is the Bethany Mota perfume from Aeropostale that I use almost everyday. I love the scent of this so much that I'm already more than half way done with my second bottle. Another perfume I've used up, but forgot to take a picture of, is my roll on Soho Nights also from Aeropostale. I love it so much that I bought a big bottle of it during my last visit to the store.

The second thing I've been loving to use is Origins Ginger Souffle body cream. The smell of this lotion is amazing and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturized. 

What products have you emptied out and want to buy again? I would love to hear about it in the comments below. And if you would like to see what I've been up to everyday of this summer, check out my vlog channel which I will link down below. Thanks for reading. Until the next post. Never forget to be you :)

Ready for Some Sunshine ☼

Now that is summer, I definitely needed to update my wardrobe and go buy some new things to prepare me for all the long days relaxing both under the sun and at home. Here is a little collective haul of things I have bought over the past few weeks.

From Aeropostale, there was a great sale all of the times we went there, so I bought a lot of things that range from beach to workout attire. For the beach I got a pink top that says Beachin on the front and has some cuts or slits on the back, and a simple black top from the XXVI line.  I also got a tie dye bikini top that has the cutest lace design on the back that will surely make some fancy tan lines.

As for workout attire, I got a sports bra and two sweat free tops. One is a tank top that says Win It on the front (which I only got for $4 #score haha) and a regular shirt with cap sleeves that says 'Stay Fear Less' on the front. And all three of them are from the Live Love Dream line.

Because it was 40% and I was running out of my roll on version of it, I also decided to get the Soho Nights perfume in the bigger bottle since I love the smell so much.

At Forever 21, I only bought one piece of clothing which is a blue water color tie dye-ish romper which I think will be perfect to use at the beach over my bathing suit or just going out shopping and hanging out with my friends.

At Barnes and Nobles I didn't get any books (since I already have a big pile of them that I still have to read) but I did get a mug from the cafe inside that I absolutely love, and a candle and soap from their beachy home collection as a present for my aunty.

I am so excited to be able to wear all of these things, besides the mug of course (haha), and have fun under the sun this summer. What are some of your essentials as you enjoy your vacation? I would love to hear about it in the comments below. And if you would like to see what I've been up to everyday, I have decided to vlog everyday of my summer and you can watch my videos by clicking on the links that I've listed below.
