    June Goals

    Hey Everyone!

    How’s your week going? Guess what.. ITS JUNE. Like What? January was literally yesterday, we just started the school year didn’t we?!? This is crazy. I think that as you grow older time passes faster and it is such a shame. I feel like I need to just slow everything down and savour it. That is actually exactly why I am writing this today.

    This morning I came across this video called “Try something new for 30 Days” This is a Ted talk by Matt Cutts (Watch it here). Basically he talks about how doing something you have wanted to do for 30 days and how it ¬†helps the days become more memorable. It really made me think that that is exactly what I need. So luckily since it is the first day of June, I am going to try a few of my own 30 day challenges or monthly goals and see how it goes. I felt the need to share this with you because I think everyone at some point feels like they are in the rut he talks about in the video where the days and months fly by. So I encourage you to maybe try what I am doing and see what happens. It can’t hurt you to try!

    So as I was saying here is my June Goals.

    -> Blog twice a week
    -> Take a photo everyday
    -> Write a poem/quote everyday
    -> Journal Everyday.
    -> Study for exams
    -> Exercise every other day
    -> Read 3 books
    -> Try to go vegetarian
    -> Make a video every week for youtube.
    -> Hit 43 days of fire on snapchat with one of my friends.
    -> Start my scrapbook
    -> Start a summer hashtag #LM16Summer
    -Explanations-
    Basically I suck at blogging. Sometimes I blog really well for 2 weeks then I do nothing for a month and that bothers me. I feel like a need a schedule.
    I tried to take a photo everyday of summer last year but It didn’t last long, thought I would try my best for 30 days.
    Now writing a poem/quote everyday won’t be that hard for me because I basically do that everyday anyway (You can check them out on my tumblr right here if you want.)
    Journaling everyday. Now that is a challenge. I also suck at that type of thing aswell just staying consistent with writing something everyday.
    Exams. They are at the end of this month and I need to get my butt in gear because I have been so lazy recently.
    Exercising is something I have actually been doing a good job at being consistent with it for 2 weeks. I feel like I need to continue this fitness streak into June.
    Read 3 books. I have read 3 books in May and I want to try my best to do the same in June.
    VEGETARIAN. Now that is something my family sure dreads. I personally cannot look at meat or eat meat for the life of me anymore. I have no idea why, it just disgusts me. Its not even about the animals (Although that is an additional reason) but the taste just makes me want to puke. I think I should be able to do it as long as my parents don’t try to force feed me gross beef… bleh.
    Make a video every weeks something I am hoping I will be able to do. I have really been into making short film type videos recently but they take quite a while to film and edit. We will see what happens.
    Hitting 43 days of fire with one of my friends on snapchat should be a piece of cake because we are honestly the weirdest friends and like to talk about our fluffy cat obsession constantly.
    Starting my scrapbook needs to be done. I have been putting it off since march. I mean I have the cover ready and everything but I just need to print off the photos from my computer. (You can see a picture of it here on Instagram.)
    Start a summer hashtag. I always love seeing someone have their own hashtag where only they post, that is just a bunch of photos during that time. I have decided to do the hashtag #LM16Summer which basically means Lauryn Mills 2016 Summer. Let me know if you spot that hashtag on my Instagram or Twitter in the next couple of weeks ūüėČ
    So those are my June Goals. What are yours? Let me know in a comment!
    Hope you all have a wonderful start to June!

  • May Favourites

    Screen Shot 2016-05-29 at 3.56.11 PM

    Hey Everyone!
    Sorry about the couple weeks off. It has started to get kind of busy around my universe the past 2-3 weeks. I thought that today would be a good day to make my comeback.

    So anyway today I have for you my May Favourites. I rarely do favourites types of post or videos because I don’t personally find them that interesting for me to watch or read so I don’t want to make them for others who feel the same way. But today I had found just a few things that I really have been liking the past couple months that I thought maybe a few of you might be interested in what I have to say.

    First Favourite. (Here i just combined a bunch of beauty products.) The first one is the Batiste dry shampoo. PEOPLE. This is the best thing I have smelt in my entire life. Just simply amazing. It works wonders aswell.
    Second is the Garnier skin renew bb cream. I have been trying this out since the middle of march this year and it is defiantly my favourite foundation that I have tried so far because it is very light weight.
    Lastly is the Rimmel London super curler mascara. I got this for my birthday last month and have been using it every single day. I have never tried this one before I got it but it defiantly curls your lashes beautifully.

    Second Favourite is my bedding. Okay I know this is bad but I have no idea what brand this is. When I was up in Belleville Ontario for a baby shower I got this at the mall but the name of the brand escapes me. If you live anywhere close to Belleville I’m sure you know what store I’m talking about.¬†These are so soft and definitely bring personality to my room.

    Third is my guitar! I have been playing guitar on and off since I was 8 but May was really when I got back into the swing of it. Now my fingers don’t hurt when I play it which is great. I have had this guitar for forever and it is basically my other half.¬†Screen Shot 2016-05-29 at 3.56.00 PM

    Fourth is my leather jacket. Now I have had this jacket since the beginning of January and I am in love with it. I wear it basically every week and I think it just makes my outfits look a little cooler. This one is from SWS.

    Lastly are a few books. I have also been reading a lot in May. For my birthday we built a reading area in my closet with a bench and shelves and I have basically been living in there all of May haha. (New post coming on that soon.)

    As I said I have been reading a lot and these are some of the books I got through in May. I did a whole review on All the bright places (My new fav book) a few weeks ago. Check it out here!

I recently got the Canon Rebel T5i, I have been saving for a good year now and with the help of my lovely mother and grandmother both my sister and I were able to each get a new camera. I am so thankful to have finally gotten this amazing addition.

    My Art Instagram! For those of you who follow me on Instagram you would know that within the past month I have opened an Art Instagram. I am an art lover and I draw in my free time so I thought I would start sharing it with the world (insert nervous laugh here). *Just a disclaimer, This is just a hobby I am not saying I am a good artist at all!*Honestly It has grown bigger than I thought it would. I started drawing again after my exams, people like Annie from Bratayley,  Liv from SimplyLiv, Bailee Madison, Veronica Merrel, and more. For several days I kept getting noticed by these amazing people. The Bratayley gang retweeted my tweet of the picture which now has almost 600 likes. SimplyLiv Reposted my photo on her instagram where she actually linked my main account (By linking that I have received over 300 new followers. Thanks Liv!), And Lastly Bailee Madison liked and commented on the drawing. You may know Bailee from things like young snow white in Once Upon A Time, the sister of Maia Mitchell in The Fosters, Grace in Good Witch and many more amazing titles. Honestly this girl is such an inspiration to many and hopefully one day we can meet and hang sometime! Us 1999 girls gotta stick together!Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 4.32.01 PM

    Here is the link to my Art Instagram! Check it out!
