Utah roadtrip 2021 | Photo journal

Hey lovelies! How are y’all?? I’m grand 🙂 Um so I haven’t posted in foreverrrr but I have exciting news, I went on a road trip to Utah! I’ve always thought Utah looked like a really cool place and so while looking for a destination for a family road trip, I suggested Utah and my parents agreed! I also knocked a couple other states of my list of states I wanted to visit so that was thrilling 🙂

We went to Idaho, Utah, Nevada and even Arizona! AZ was wonderful, I was there for about 2 whole minutes while I took a picture with the state sign and then we turned around and drove over the state line haha! But I got to cross it off my list and now I can say I’ve been there 🤩 Anyways, I might add a little bit of commentary along with these pictures but I’ve got two batches of clothes to fold so I just wanted to hop on and do a little photo journal of my trip!

**All photos taken on my iPhone 11 and edited with free vsco filters or Lightroom presets 🙂

ALSO: saddest thing ever for my little photographer heart. I dropped my phone in Utah right as we were getting into Idaho and my phone camera broke 😭 Now all my photos in direct sunlight with the back camera have a huge glare. Quite sad. Hopefully I can get it fixed soon and its not too expensive 🤞🏼

The arches! This was such a cool park to see 🤩

all these pictures above were taken in Idaho except for the cartwheel one, that one was from the bonneville salt flats 🙂 Btw, highly recommend the salt flats if you like taking pictures, it was SO pretty!

of course I had to get coffee in Utah haha 😉 Not a ton of coffee shops though which was quite sad but I tried swig which was pretty good!

Anyways, that’s all for this post! I’ve got a super fun collab coming up, ft. some really cool socks I’m excited to show you guys 🤭 Also, i’m now addicted to funky socks, they’re the best haha!

what was your favorite picture? What is your favorite state? How many states have you been to? Ever went on a road trip? Comment down below, id love to chat! 💓🌸

How to have a Christmas sleepover in August. Because why not? *shrugs*

Hello people! How are you doing? I hope you’re doing wonderful 🙂

Today I’m back with a random post that I hope you’ll love. Last week, my friend and I were cleaning our house and singing karaoke and talking about holidays. Our favorite holiday (Christmas!!!!) came up (obviously ;)) and we were all like “It’s so sad that Christmas isn’t for another like 6 months! Yeah, I wish it was Christmas right now. Wait. What if we had a Christmas sleepover tonight?!? But.. it’s like the middle of summer? Who cares?!” and that was how it went down y’all. And the idea was born. We could go shopping, get supplies, watch a Christmas movie, listen to some Christmas songs, build a “gingerbread” house, and of course, string Christmas lights around the room.

So with all that being said, here are the SIX easy steps to having your very own Christmas sleepover in the middle of August!!

Step one:

Dress festive. Our first idea was to dress like it was winter but we decided that might make us look a bit too weird. So we opted for the more simple, refined look. Christmas themed fuzzy socks. Because fuzzy socks are the best and them being christmassy is just a bonus 😉

Step two:

Get snacks. Preferably Christmas themed ones but alas, since it is August, your local store might not be supplying Christmas snacks unless they are super awesome. We did actually find peppermint sticks so that was cool 🙂 If you’re planning on building a gingerbread house you will need to find some candy and supplies to decorate that! Warm foods and drinks that remind you of winter are also really swell!

Step three:

Create the atmosphere. String some lights up, bring in the fuzzy blankets and pillows. Get comfortable. If you want to be really extra you could even get all the Christmas decor. It’d be great ❤ Our area was pretty cute anyways 🙂

Step 4:

Get yo self some tunes. Preferably Christmas ones so they go with the theme 🙂

Step five:

Pick a holiday themed movie. In this instance we chose to watch Mandie and The Forgotten Christmas and it was pretty good. I fell asleep during it though because I was extremely tired so I need to rewatch it sometime 😉

Step 6:

Build your self a beautiful gingerbread mansion home. And then eat it for breakfast the next morning xD Also if you have some struggles with them architecture and building, believe me, we’ve all been there. It’s rough 🙂 But our “gingerbread house” turned out pretty good and it sure tasted good, until we made ourselves sick anyways 😉


And there you have it! 6 easy steps to having your very own Christmas sleepover in the middle of August.

I hope you enjoyed! Would you have a spontaneous Christmas sleepover in august? What is your favorite thing to do with your friends? What is your favorite holiday? Chat with me in the comments, I’d love to talk!

May bullet journal setup *proudly shows you*

Hey hey beautiful people 🙂 (how’s that for a new opening? I like it ;)) How are you all, I hope your well and staying safe with all the corona stuff flying around! I’m doing good! And to get straight to the point, it’s time for another May bullet journal setup post! Yay! I feel like you guys all enjoy these posts and I enjoy reading bujo posts and I ALSO enjoy journaling and blogging about my set up so it works out perfectly! Woah that was a long ramble *wipes sweat off forehead* 😂 Anyways, for May’s theme I chose to do plants/succulents/cactus’/etc. and although I don’t totally love the theme, I’m very happy with how it came out! Okayyy I know what y’all are thinking, lets see some pictures! 😉

This is my cover page! I’m pretty happy with it, I think the plants are all so cute but my calendar thing is kind of messed up by that hanging plant/(and the plant on the bottom right) but oh welllll xD. You don’t notice it until I mention it 😉 OHHH ALSO: I LOVE THE QUOTE, don’t you? It gives me happy vibes 🙂

Next my calendar, pretty basic, nothing super special but it’s still cute! I have a bit of birthdays this month, all bunched into about a week xD. Hopefully the COVID-19 situation calms down and my calendar can fill up this month!

My mood tracker! I struggled making this but it turned out pretty cute! I LOVE the plant theme, I always do a plant theme 1+ time/s per year because it’s simple and super cute 🙂 Hopefully I have a lot of green days in this coming month!

Next is my playlist and I added a couple songs that I’ve been loving! My musical taste/genre is literally all over the place, but its fine 😉

Last but not least, I have my goals/self care challenge page. I’ve recently been doing self care challenges each month (except I skipped April) but it’s quite fun and it motivates me to do/complete my goals! I drew some cute little greenery sketches on some simple green Washi tape to spice it up and I think it turned out adorable!

............................................................................................

Well, that concludes my May bujo setup, I hope you enjoyed! Sorry for not posting for a while, I’ve been staying busy with at-home-projects during quarantine!

What have you been up to? Which page was your favorite? Do you have a bullet journal? Talk to me in the comments, I love to chat! ❤️❤️❤️

Wishing you the happiest of Mays,

xx, Jasmin

April Bullet journal Setup: *bows*

Hey hey 🙂 How are you? I’m good :)) This month, with the quarantine stuff going on, I had a bit of extra time so I managed to get my bujo setup done in time! I chose to draw a cute cafe ( I completely copied of a Pinterest so welp but the rest of my pages are original xD) but then I kind of struggled knowing what to do the rest of my little doodles as, because I didn’t want to just do a bunch of little cafes everywhere 🙂 So we ended up doing a lot of coffee cups xD

Onto the pictures!

My cute little cafe 🙂 I am really happy with how this came out! I listened to a whole church sermon while I sketched it, so it came out pretty good, imo 😉 I love cute little cafes and if this same cafe exists somewhere in this world, I would be very happy 🙂 On the other side of this page is a quote ( you can see the whole spread in the picture above) but I didn’t take a pic of the quote… So yeah, this is my cover page! Overall, I’m happy with it!

Next is a really cool ( in my opinion) college that I crafted together using coffee pics I printed off of Pinterest! On the opposite page is my mood tracker, which I’m pretty happy with! Sorry this pic is a bit blurry, I don’t know why this one came out like that!

Coolness, am I right?!?

This is my calendar that I spent a good hour creating. *rolls eyes* I HATE making calendars because it takes me FOREVER to line everything up and get it to look decent but it finally happened so yay!

Next is my bucket list/goals and my playlist! I was pretty happy with how both of these turned out!

Last and (kinda least) we have my weekly spread/journal! It’s INSANELY basic, but I chose functionality over intenseness and I’m hoping it works well!
. . . . . . . . . .

And that’s all for today!!! What’d u think?! Which page is your favorite? Do you have a bullet journal? If so, what was your theme for April? I hope u enjoyed and I’ll try and post soon!

Stay safe ❤️

xx, Jasmin
