Happy weekend loves! This week was a rooough one . Anyone else think so!?
I have so many fun things planned this upcoming week with my boyfriend for his birthday! Yesterday I threw him a surprise birthday party and I have been keeping it a secret for over a MONTH! He had no clue and was smiling all night so it was definitely worth it. 🙂 We are heading to Monterey and San Francisco tomorrow so if you guys have any recs, please send them my way and follow along on Instagram for our adventures @whatsonmaimind!
ONE // Never settle. With your career, your love life, with life in general! This has been on my mind a lot lately. As I have gotten older, I have learned that being picky with your job, friends, boyfriend/girlfriend and whatever else isn’t a bad thing. People settle for “okay” or mediocracy in so many aspects in life and I never understand it. We are so terrified of change, failure and taking risks as a society and I truly believe this is why we tend to settle in life. I hear endless excuses everyday from people to justify their complacency. But why? Change is terrifying, but the outcome usually turns out to be good! Some of the world’s most famous and iconic people have failed miserably before they made it big. Can you imagine a world without Walt Disney, JK Rowling, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan or Bill Gates!? I definitely can’t imagine a world without Disneyland, Harry Potter or Microsoft. My point is, don’t settle with comfortable or “okay”. There is no thrill, passion, life-changing or unforgettable moments with comfortable or “okay”. Go out there and live your vision!
TWO // Don’t compare yourself to others. I read this quote this week that really resonated with me and I wanted to share it with you babes, “don’t compare your life to others. There’s no comparison between the sun and the moon, they shine when it’s their time. ” It is so hard to do this with today’s social media sometimes, but we have to remember that what makes it to social media is very controlled. We can’t compare our behind-the-scenes to someone’s highlight reels.
THREE // Layer up! Gimme all the fuzzy jackets and puffer jackets, please! Now that it’s finally getting cold out, I have been browsing alll the sweaters, jackets, and beanies! I will always be obsessed with fuzzy jackets and I am SO into the puffy jacket this season. How cute is THIS puffer jacket! THIS one is the cutest puffer AND fuzzy jacket! Hi, yes, I’d love to look like a plump pink marshmallow! THIS puffer jacket is so cute and under $100! THIS fuzzy coat is die for and looks like a blanket! I mean, need I say more!? I just picked up THIS beanie and it is the cutest! Now I also want the cream and pink one (HERE) too 🙈. I have also been updating my Shop page so be sure to check my picks there too! I have a feeling this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale is gonna be a good one! Would you babes wanna see a post on my favorite deals + picks?! Let me know below or DM me!
Hope you babes had best weekend, chat soon! xx
