I had my 30th birthday party last Saturday. A family friend made a cake for me, which I wasn’t expecting. She is so good at cakes! She makes and decorates them herself. It was red velvet and had a whipped cream icing, which is my favorite. I don’t like the really sweet icings. However, I discovered that my body can’t handle eating stuff like that too well anymore. It seems like anything that ends in ‘cream’ (whipped cream, sour cream, ice cream, for example) does a number on my stomach. The cake was so delicious though. It was worth it. We called it the rave cake. As some of you know, if you’ve been reading, I was in the rave scene years back. Although I don’t rave anymore, it still has a special place in my heart. Plus, I still love anything neon and fluorescent.
What have I been up to since I got back from Ocean City? Not too much, aside from going back to work, watching movies, and eating lots of food. I got to try some new food places recently, which I’ll get to later in the post. I seriously get so excited about food! Haha.
At the end of August, I got bored one evening while I was still on vacation, so I decided to get all glammed up. Where did I go? Nowhere, but who cares. Sometimes it’s just fun doing your hair and makeup for no reason other than you just feel like it.
Happy first of July! I can’t believe June is over already. This whole year has just been flying by so far! I still remember sitting alone in my room on New Years Eve and thinking that 2018 was going to be just another less than stellar year that blends in with previous years. I couldn’t even have told you when the last really good thing to happen to me was. I had no idea at that moment what 2018 had in store for me. We’re now six months into this year and my car has been paid off, I’m sitting in my own home that I purchased (and just made my first mortgage payment), and I’ve finally got my basement set up, which has been a dream of mine for quite some time.
It has been three months since the last time I did one of these posts. Oops. If you’re new here, it’s basically just a picture post that showcases some of the photos I’ve taken and things I’ve been up to within the last week.
Not too much has been happening this past week. I’m still getting settled in my new house, but it already has such a cozy vibe. I still need to hang things on the wall though. I ordered some wall decals today to put up in the kitchen, so I can’t wait to get them. I want the kitchen decor to be retro/diner style, so hopefully it turns out okay.
The basement is still just a storage space for now until I’m able to buy what I need to turn half of it into a little movie room. I wish I could do it right away, but I’m just not able to at the moment, so I keep telling myself to be patient.
I didn’t do one of these posts last week, but like I said I probably won’t do them every week because sometimes I don’t take that many photos. It really just depends. This post will feature some photos I took from last weekend to this weekend, plus some tidbits about what I’ve been up to. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have already seen some of these.
Last Friday, after I got home from work, I decided to have some fun with the Huji Cam app. It’s one of my favorite apps. It’s a camera that you can take photos with, and as soon as you snap a photo it will say “developing”. Then it will go into the “lab” which is a photo album inside of the app. You can view the photos there and decide to save them or delete them. The app automatically and randomly applies different colors, light leaks, grain, etc. to give photos a disposable camera effect. You don’t get to choose the end result of the photo since it randomizes the effects as soon as you snap the photo, but I think that’s part of the fun.
I came up with the idea to occasionally do these photo roundups. It likely won’t be an every week thing as sometimes I only take a couple photos, or no photos at all. Other times, I might take a multitude of photos.
This roundup will consist of photos I’ve taken between last weekend and this weekend. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you might have already seen a few of these. Some of these I am posting online for the first time.
