200 Followers & Pinterest Inspired OOTD

Happy Friday!!

I seriously can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted anything in here! I’ve been sick for the past 2 weeks and not having energy to do anything! Itsucked! I went to work and then class, did my homework and came home to sleep. That’s allll i did! I am feeling way better and got my energy back. While I was sick I got 200 of you beautiful daisies following me! What an amazing feeling! I couldn’t thank you guys enough! ❤ ❤ ❤ I also got nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by itsnaly and will try to do that this weekend! You all have been such a blessing in my life! I’ve made some amazing friends and look forward to meeting more! I have made an instagram page recently, add me justalittlebigofcoffee so I can follow you guys!

I have 3 more weeks of school left so that’s kind of stressing me out at this moment. I also got a second job couple days ago (will make a post about that soon) but haven’t started yet. I will be juggling school full time, homework, and 2 jobs for the next 3 weeks which will be a headache but after 3 weeks I will just be working at the new job and I will have wayyyyy more time to focus on blogging!

Anyway! Today I wanted to post a pinterest inspired outfit that I have been wanting to try since forever! The pictures below I found on pinterest! I love the slip dress look over a long sleeve turtleneck! It’s soooo cute and comfy at the same time! Also space buns are sooo adorable and I thought they would be perfect with my outfit!

 

Let me know what you guys thought of my styling? I have been using pinterest for my outfit inspirations at least 2 times a week! I have another one that I am thinking of recreating that is Tumblr inspired! With the weather being nicer and nicer everyday I think my motivation to actually go out and do stuff is coming back! I love you guys! XOXO! ❤

Coffee Study Time & OOTD

Coffee Study Time & OOTD

pinterest-inspired

Happpy Friday my lovely Daisies!

Today was one of those days where I knew I had some homework due but didn’t want to stay home to do it. So I decided to go to a different coffee shop then my usual one I go to. Awakenings is closer to my house and I used to go to it literally allllllll the time that all the baristas memorized my name. It’s a super cute coffee shop that is connected to a church and plays christian music all the time which is pretty amazing!

But before going I was in a rut as to what to wear. I wanted something comfy but edgy at the same time. SO I turned to pinterest. One of the trends that kept popping up was fishnet tights! I seen this trend all over tumblr and now it was all over pinterest. Since I knew I had some fishnets somewhere in my closet I decided to give it a try! And what better way to wear “holy” jeans in the winter then with tights underneath to stay warm. Here are some of the pictures that kept popping up on pinterest and what I used for inspiration.

Here is how I styled my fishnet tights for the winter wear! Let me know if you tried this trend already and what you think about it? Me personally I LOVE it!

Survived the First Day Back at School After Winter Break!

Survived the First Day Back at School After Winter Break!

Good Morning my beautiful Daisies!

I hope everyone had an amazing and unforgettable New Year! I still find it hard to believe it’s 2017 already and school started once again. Something I did in 2016 was procrastinate alot when it came to school. I was always stressed out and turning in homework last minute. I know that if I would have organized my week better I would have been less stressed out and enjoyed my school experience better. So this year I decided to finally organize and get stuff done on time. Being organized is even more motivating since this quarter is my last quarter in school! It’s kind of hard to believe that in 3 months I will have my business degree!

Today I wanted to share with you guys how I started my first day back to school and work after a 3 week winter break. Going to bed early is something new to me since I am used to going to bed close to 3am! I went to bed early on Monday knowing that I had to be up at 6am. Since I ended up going to bed super early I woke up yesterday pretty early around 4am! I felt nice and refreshed! I had time to make some coffee and eat breakfast and actually do my makeup, compared to last year, I would wake up 2 minutes before I had to be out the door and not eat till 4pm sometimes.

I left the house at 7am since I had to buy a parking pass and I knew that it being the first day back there would be a huuuuge line! I was right I ended up waiting in line for a good 20 minutes! It was 2 degrees outside at 7am and let me tell you I was glad I wore a thick turtleneck sweater underneath my coat! I bought a red bull drink the day before knowing that I would need the extra boost on my first day back!

I had to be at the college at 8am since I am a work study student and had work till 10:15 and then had a 2 hour class right after at 10:30 till 12:30pm. I have been working at the college library as a work study student for about a year and a half now and I LOVE IT! I love meeting new people at the college since I am mostly at the circulation desk checking books or laptops out and shelving once in a while. When I clocked into work at 8 am I spend the next 2 hours of my shift shelving books, since we were on break for the past 3 weeks, there were a lot of books that were returned on the last day of class. After shelving I had a little time before class started to water our plants at the library.

I am taking 3 classes this quarter. I am taking Fundamentals of Advertising, Social Media Marketing, and Micro Economics. For Fundamentals of Advertising our teacher said for our final project we are going to choose a small business and design a advertising campaign for their company. I am nervous but excited at the same time because I know this will come in handy when I will be working on opening my business in the next 6 months.

After the 2 hour class I meet up with my cousin at Panda Express for some lunch and then we headed to our favorite coffee shop, Vessel Coffee, I talked about it here if you are interested.

 

After enjoying our coffee’s we popped into an antique store next door and browsed around. We found some ooooooold books! They were sooo cool! I wish I owned ALL of them!

I ended the day by going to the gym and doing 30 minutes of cardio on the treadmill and did a few weight machines that focused on quads, hamstrings, and glutes. I woke up today really sore! Loving the feeling of finally being back at the gym.

I am sorry if this post was loong but I wanted to get in how I totally changed my routine from last year and feeling more confident in everything! With my schedule being more organized I am hoping to keep on blogging into this new year! 2017 is going to be spectacular I can feel it! Hope you lovelies will have an incredible Wednesday today and I am off to get ready for work! Love you guys sooo much! ❤

Life Update and Winter OOTD

Life Update and Winter OOTD

HI my beautiful and amazing daisies!

It’s been forever since I posted on here and let me tell you, the more closer I was getting to finals and winter break the more homework and projects I needed to turn in. I was stressing out every day worrying about school and homework and feeling down that I haven’t been able to post in a while and I missed all you guys so much! This is my third year in college and I have NEVER had a more stressful, hardest, and longest quarter then then the one I just finished.  Yes I am ALL done with this quarter! FINALLY! The only plans I have for the next three weeks is to read by the fire and drink coffee all day long, well maybe go snowboarding once or twice! I am a grandma when it comes to snow and cold!

Today was my first official day of winter break and it snowed like crazy! I did a little shopping with my sister since our refrigerator has been empty for a little bit. At first driving in the snow was reallly stressful but the more we drove the more comfortable I got and kind of even enjoyed it. We then grabbed coffee at a new location that opened up next to where I live called Wake Up Call. I’ve been there before but since it was 30 minutes away I never went there! Now I got a punch card and everything! It’s suuuper cute!

After grabbing coffee we spent the rest of the day exploring at least 4 different vintage/antique  shops! They had such cute stuff! We found cute little plastic succulent plants in mugs and they were adorable! Sadly they were $15 for each cup! I want to do a DIY maybe in the spring for them cause I can’t find them right now in the winter. I was finally able to pull out my winter coat that I got from my parents for Christmas 2 years ago from Shein.com. I am literally obsessed with it! Here is my outfit that I wore today to officially welcome Winter!

I hope you guys enjoyed my little life update and OOTD post! I will be having 3 weeks off for winter break so if you guys want to see any posts let me know and I will be happy to do them! Thank you for always being there for me daisies! ❤

Hello Hello Hello my beautiful daisies ❤

Today I am bringing you guys my outfit of the day inspired by thatgirlArlene and her post titled Pairing for Fall: Knee High Boots & Red Coat. I promised her I’ll post today on how I style mine! Everything I am wearing was thrifted besides the fedora hat which I got at Target and the bomber jacket which I got at Marshalls when I was visiting San Diego 2 weeks ago. Make sure to check out my post on best places to eat in San Diego and my favorite beaches there!

Exploring Coeur d’Alene, ID

Exploring Coeur d’Alene, ID

Happy Monday my beautiful daises! It’s been forever since my last post and I miss you guys so much! I’ve been checking up on your blogs 😉 But haven’t had any time to post. I’m so busy with school and homework and recently got a second job. I know it’s no excuse so I will try to post at least once a week!

Yesterday, after church, my best friend and I decided to hang out and do some exploring. Since we are only 10 minutes from the Idaho border we decided to go explore Coeur d’Alene and see if we could try some new places.

Our first stop was to get some food of course! With our love for sushi we decided to try Ugly Fish. Diana (my best friend) has been here once with her husband and recommended for me to try it. When we walked in the first thing I noticed was all the red decor! I loved it! It was so beautiful. There were cool light bulbs hanging down and our booth was so comfortable (sadly  I didn’t take a picture of the booth but I found a picture of them here on their website) they were red velour little mini couches. I ordered the Washington and Butterfly roll and Diana decided to try the Ugly Fish and Hawaii Roll. Honestly if I could eat sushi everyday, I would eat it here. Their rolls tasted very fresh, I was impressed! If you are in this area I would recommend stopping buy and trying these AHHHMAZING rolls! They also have tuna poke which I’ve noticed not a lot of places have!

After our delicious lunch, Diana googled a coffee shop and Grumpy Monkey came up! I love monkeys (they are my favorite animal) so of course we had to check it out!  Their coffee beans were sooo smooth! I got my usual caramel latte and wasn’t disappointed.

I seriously had so much fun with Diana! It was exactly what I needed to forget about school for a little bit and think about nothing but enjoying my time with her. I made up a list of 6 fun things you can do with your bestie during the Fall season:

  1. Explore Coffee Shops- I love exploring different coffee shops but there is something beautiful about doing it with your best friend. I know some of you are probably thinking coffee shops? That is sooo basic! But let me tell you what I love most about coffee dates. Yes there’s coffee, which you’ll know I am addicted too, and my best friend but the thing I love the most is the conversations that we have. I left the coffee shop feeling more free’er (is that a word?), less stressed about life, and feeling so relaxed. We talked about faith, God’s love towards us, and how sometimes we miss the small things in life. We encouraged each other and shared some testimonies where we seen God’s hand in our life. I am so blessed to have her as a best friend!
  1. Go hiking- With fall season upon us it is the perfect time to go hiking or walk a trail. Those beautiful yellow, red, orange, and brown colors are all around us and in no time it will be winter so take the opportunity while you can and go try out a new hiking area or hike your favorite trail with your bestie!
  1. Visit a Bookstore or Library- If you and your bestie are more staying inside and being nice and cozy during fall weather kind of people then go explore different bookstores! There is nothing better than being surrounded with books and your best friend. I can stay at the library all day copped up somewhere in the corner reading a book.
  1. Go to a concert- I can still remember Diana’s and my first concert together. We went to the Rock & Worship Roadshow in January of 2014. We got to see Skillet which is one of our favorite bands. It was definitely a night to remember! We had so much fun! So if you can I would recommend going to a concert together! It’s an amazing experience.
  1. Bake together- I don’t know about you but I love the smell of baking! Especially if it is something chocolaty 🙂 I remember Diana and I made brownies once and they were sooo delicious! Fall is the perfect time to stay inside and bake the day away together!
  1. Go Ice Skating- Always go with your bestie that way if you fall while ice skating; they will be right there to pick you up. Ice skating honestly can be so fun. You can people watch if you get tired and need a break. But make sure to bundle up and stay warm!

I know there are A TON more fun ideas so leave them in the comments below! I would love to hear your ideas that I can do with Diana next time ❤

Coffee Adventures & OOTD <3

Coffee Adventures & OOTD <3

If you were to ask me what I love doing during my free time I would say exploring new coffee shops! Before I moved last month, I lived in a small town that had only 3 coffee shops, and all 3 used the same coffee beans which I disliked. So you can imagine my happiness when I moved and there were coffee shops EVERYWHERE!

My cousin was visiting me this week and what better to do then go coffee shop exploring with him. I heard about Vessel Coffee Roasters last month from my sister and been wanting to go check it out. The coffee shop gave me a Portland hipster vibe. Lets talk about how big the sitting area is! One reason that keeps  me from doing homework at coffee shops is that most coffee places are small. I LOVED the spacious area! It’s going to be perfect for those days when I need to do homework and can get coffee here and wont have to worry about finding a spot to sit.

This is just one side of the coffee shop!

I am wearing the softest and most comfortable shirt ever! I got it at Marshall’s last week in Portland and I’m in love with it! My jeans and boots are thrifted. The boots say that they are originally from Forever21 and I got my fedora style hat from Target.

My favorite season is Fall so I am so excited to style more fall pieces! Leave me a comment on what’s your favorite Fall essential pieces to wear ❤
