Ahh where to begin on recapping just how fun the In N Out Picnic was. Isaac and I arrived early so we were able to do so much before it got more packed with associates and their families. We enjoyed the day and rode fun rides, played bingo and carnival games, ate so much food, and ended off our night by dancing it out 🙂

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

How I’m Being Frugal In June

Now that we’re halfway through the year, I’ve had a lot of moments where I’ve thought about how much money I should have saved up. However, I had an eye opening experience when I realized I’ve been working so much yet I have hardly nothing to show for it. When I took a look at my bank statements, I realized I’ve been spending way too much on clothes and food. Throughout this, I’ve now added a shit ton of stuff to my closet that I hardly ever wear and I’ve gained some weight from eating out all of the time.

As summer is approaching I now have a bunch of new clothes I’m happily willing to show off but a body that I’m not proud of. I’ve been paying $30 a month for a gym membership I hardly use. So throughout all of my deep thinking, I came to the conclusion that I’m going to challenge myself to not buy anything new and not eat out in excess in the month of June. Plus I’m going to go to the gym 20 times this month in hopes that I will continue this in other months. 

It’s been pretty hard to keep up a good track record but I’m excited to challenge myself in such a way. So far I have not purchased anything except shampoo because I needed it, but I bought the cheapest and biggest bottle so it could last me longer. I also have not eaten out nor do I have plans to. I started this challenge off by telling Isaac and my family so that way they don’t pressure me into buying things or eating out.

Recently I got a second job for the summer time while I’m not taking any classes so I can make more money to invest into my future. I opened up a savings account specifically for the money I’ll be getting and I can’t wait to see how much I’ll have saved up by the end of summer!

I’d love for you guys to also join in on my frugal June experience 🙂 and if you have any suggestions on how to save money, please let me know.

Happy Monday loves! Yesterday Isaac, Nicole and I went to Los Angeles to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and it was so much fun. We went shopping at The Grove, taught Nicole how to thrift shop, and ended off our day with tacos from Teddy’s Red Tacos. 

For my outfit I didn’t have anything super festive for the holiday but I had this super cute smocked rainbow top sitting in my closet and I thought it’d be perfect. The day was chilly and it actually rained towards the end of the day so I’m glad I wore these jeans and not these shorts. I paired my look with my white sandals and it turned out cute and festive.

I’m wishing you all a beautiful week

Day In Laguna Beach

Since my last beach trip, I’ve been dying to go back so when I found out Isaac and I had Saturday off from work, I quickly suggested a beach day. We decided on Laguna beach and it was gorgeous. However, we left and went to our favorite place; Newport! We always go to Corona Del Mar so that’s why we originally wanted to switch it up but when we got to Laguna, it was so hard to find parking plus we both needed to use the restroom badly and there were no bathrooms. So we ended up turning back and going to our favorite beach. 

We soaked up the sun and dipped our feet in the water (which was freezing btw) and just had fun. I did get a bit sunburnt since it was gloomy but it’s not too bad thankfully. 

After the beach I really wanted ice cream so we made a pit stop at Atomic Creamery in Fashion Island. I’ve been following their page on Instagram for the longest but we never got a chance to stop by and try it out so it was a must for me to try it out yesterday. I’m so glad we went because it was so freaking good plus the decor and theming is perfect. If you guys are in the area of Newport or Laguna, definitely stop by and try it out. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and week 🙂

P.S. I’d also like to thank you all for the love on Friday’s post. It was hard to write but I’m glad I was able to write out how I’ve felt over the situation.
