Hey everyone!

I’ve been wanting to start a new blog series for quite some time now but didn’t have any inspiration to do so until recently. I thought about trying to be more creative with ideas but I think I’ll keep it simple for now.

This blog series will just include random thoughts of how I feel and what’s going on in my life. I’m thinking of writing up a short post every Friday night for the rest of the year – or at least attempt to! Through this blog series, I hope to connect with my readers in a more personal way.

Okay let’s be real, I’m pretty sure this post will be a hot mess so I apologize in advance. 

Anywho ~ I just got back from a mini vacation early this week – I went to North Carolina to hang out with some friends! NC was so beautiful and I’m pretty sure I gained 10 pounds..I ate SO MUCH food.

Best BBQ chicken and coleslaw EVER!

After the trip, it was fun to come home to my Birchbox, IpsyDazzley Box, Beauteque Haul, and a few other packages!

Amazing mail days are what I live for.

The only other thing that went on this week was an interview I had this afternoon – I won’t go into much detail about it tonight..perhaps next week.

The last thing I’ll share in tonight’s ramblings is this pin:

This pin really made me think. I feel like I spent most of my life trying to please others and recently, I realized I should focus more on myself and what makes me happy. Some days I feel selfish for doing putting myself first but I’m learning to be okay with it. I really want to find my purpose in life and I can feel I’m getting closer in doing so!

Well..that’s enough rambling for tonight! I hope at least one of you got through this post and join me in Friday Night Ramblings!

Feel free to post your thoughts/ramblings in the comments below! If you decide to join me with in this blog series on your own blog, tweet me your posts so I can RT/share them!
