Hey everyone!

It's been a very long week for me. I went back to California only to catch a plane to Chicago on July 2nd. I'm leaving for home in August, so I'll be staying in Chicago for most of my summer. I've already done a few things.

I've gone to Oak Fest. It's a festival that happens around the beginning of July in honor of the 4th of July. There were only a few rides, but they were fun and exciting. They ended the 4th of July with a fifteen to thirty minute fireworks display.

I bought my first LUSH products. I don't like buying certain products online. LUSH products are one of them. I might make a post about them next week. 

I bought grav3yardgirl's new palette from Sephora. I actually bought the palette today! I don't have a Sephora close to my place, so when I saw the display in the mall, I knew I had to get one. I was one the fence about buying it, but when the employee started to restock the palette, I just went for it. There will definitely be a post about it in the upcoming weeks.

There's a lot of exciting events coming up soon. Tomorrow I'll be going to a Panic! At The Disco and Weezer concert! Depending on how well I can see the stage, I might post some pictures on my Instagram! (Which is @laceituplove, if you haven't been following me!) 

What have you done this week? Leave a comment down below! 

That's it for this week! Thanks for reading! 


Hey guys!

I wanted to share with you the various goals I have for this summer. Although there are studies and reports that advise against telling people about our goals because we'll be more likely to put it off or some such, I personally like to snoop into people's goals. I like to know other people's interests and agendas because it's so interesting to see how their minds work.

Exercise five times a day. My younger cousin likes to go biking. We've been biking around the neighborhood the last few days as a way to get more active. That totally counts as exercise.

Drink six glasses of water. I haven't been drinking water as much as I should be. I loved the Plant Nanny app, but I couldn't remember every time when I drunk water. I'm using my bullet journal to track my drinking for now.

Go to different stores. This seems a bit vague, but there are some stores that can only be found in Chicago or stores that don't have a store location in California.

Buy a few different clothing items. I know I said I'm not going to buy a lot of different types of clothes in What's My Style post. However, my band tee obsession has gotten out of hand. There needs to be at least a little bit of variety in my wardrobe.

Edit my NaNoWriMo work. I'm participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this July. Instead of writing new material, I'll be editing the work I did in November 2015. I'm pretty late at this point, but I'm hoping to catch up on Saturday.

Read a two chapters a day. I'm behind on the fifty-two book challenge. So behind. I have a few books on my iPod that I'll hopefully finish by the time I get home. 

I only have a few goals this summer. There isn't a lot I want to work on while I'm in Chicago since I'll be busy with family.

What are your summer goals?
