“Comparison is the thief of joy.” – Theodore Roosevelt
We’ve heard that quote numerous times yet we continue to compare ourselves to others. Why is that?
For me, when I compare my life to someone else’s life, it’s because I think they have it better than me or they have something that I want. Due to social media (Facebook & Instagram), I find myself comparing myself to others more often. Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out on something because I saw it on Instagram! It leads to greater dissatisfaction in my own life even though my life is pretty good. It’s better than just good, it’s amazing. I don’t say it’s amazing because everything is perfect but I know that I am very blessed. But I need to remind myself of this daily and look at what I do have instead of what I don’t have. So what’s a girl to do in order to have joy in her life? Here’s what helps me. View Post
*We were given 3 complimentary tickets to Soak City. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The weather is warming up and what better way to cool off than to head to Knott’s Soak City Waterpark! Not only is it Orange County’s largest water park but it’s the perfect destination for some family fun with their 2-acre expansion!
If you’re a fan of Ju-Ju-Be bags like I am, then you know that Rosy Posy will be releasing on May 30th. It’s a collaboration between Ju-Ju-Be and Baby Tula and was announced back on April 22nd. On April 23rd, at Ju-Ju-Beach, guest were given a sneak peak of the Rosy Posy collection! Rosy Posy comes on an oatmeal background with beautiful pink, blue, and red flowers. The floral print is amazing! In my opinion, the background has a slight sage green tint to it. I like to call it a light creamy pistachio color! The collection consists of the following bag styles pictured below.
Be Quick, Be Set, Be Ready, Be Charged, Be Light, Super Be, BFF, Change Pad, Fuel Cell, Be Right Back, Itty Bitty Be, Mini Be, Messenger Strap, Be Neat, Be Spendy, Be Classy, Be Rich, Paci Pod (Source)
Skincare is always a topic of interest within my circle of friends. It’s one of the things we all notice if someone’s skin looks younger, healthier, or better. Taking care of my skin has been something that I’ve made a conscious effort to keep up with ever since I was in college. I don’t have sensitive skin so I’m able to try out different products without any issues. But I would always come back to Korean skin care products. It’s not just because I am Korean but I think they really have some innovative products!
As sumer is quickly approaching, what’s more refreshing than a ice cold drink on a hot day? A lot of drinks have so much sugar and artificial flavors that it’s hard to find one that tastes good. I just discovered Zevia! Zevia has 0 calories and 0 sugar. It’s a non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, kosher, and gluten free drink that is naturally sweetened with stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener that provides 200x the sweetness of sugar that doesn’t raise blood pressure and has no calories.
I thought it would be the perfect drink to use in this simple ginger ale mocktail! You can actually add some vodka to make it a cocktail. I decided to forgo the alcohol so that the drink would be family friendly.
