BACK IN BUSINESS

Lifestyle

All the dongles have arrived!!!! Vlogs are BACK BABY!

Ah yes, the glorious day when you solve all your technical issues and can finally VLOG AGAIN!

And today’s vlog is highly embarrassing. Mostly because it does not do great things for my reputation as a competant driver. Evidently, you CAN crash a car while you are not even in it. It really does take talent.

LOL.

fml tho. I accidentally got this on camera and debated editing it out. Maybe I should have considering I wasn’t techhhhnically insured to drive this car (TECHNICALLY…) but YOLO right?

So yeah. Watch my new vlog from Nosara, Costa Rica to learn more about how bad I am at driving. Good times all around.

hehe.

OK off to go workout!

pce n’ blessins.

SORRY

Travel

I hate these posts.

The posts where I’m like… OOPS SORRY FOR SUCKING AND NOT POSTING.

But this is unfortunately one of those posts. It’s so lame.

I’ve been busyyyyy. And even writing that sounds so lame and neglectful. There’s no excuse. So let’s just say I’m sorry and move right along. 

So, this week… I have two new videos for you! Watch them above and make sure to leave a ‘thumbs up’ on youtube!

In other news, remember the rant I went on one day about Apple and all the DAMN DONGLES that they don’t make but you still need to get videos/photos onto your brand new MacBook Pro? If you didn’t see it, THIS is the video I’m talking about.

FUNNY STORY ABOUT MY NEW MAC AND THE DONGLE I WAS FORCED TO ORDER OFF AMAZON CUZ APPLE DOESN’T MAKE A CAMERA CARD DONGLE!!!!

*spoiler* it’s not actually funny.

The dongle I use to connect my camera card aka where all my photos and videos are stored just stopped working. So I have no way to put new files onto my computer. I have a useless computer right now. Mac has built  A USELESS COMPUTER. WHY WHY WHY.

Uhg. I can’t even get into this anymore.

I’ve already ordered a replacement dongle but won’t get it for enough days that I’m chapped about it lol.

Anyways, that’s whats new in my world. As you can clearly see, joy and happiness. 🤣

In all seriousness, everything is fine and I will survive. But it just really grinds my gears that Apple is making such bad hardware decisions.

MOVING RIGHT ALONG.

Today we are driving back to Tamarindo, from Nosara! I hope you will see the latest Nosara vlog soon but honestly who knows with this whole dongle situation we’ve got going on lol.

Gotta go pack and get to the car!

Miss you.

PUERTO VIEJO

Travel

Not clickbait, just a really bad week.

This week, has been something else. I’m honestly not sure if I’ve ever had a worse AirBnb experience? Ever???

So yeah. This is why my last vlog was slow to upload. A few nights of no sleep = minimal productivity.

Other than the whole AirBnb situation (detailed in video above), Puerto Viejo has actually been really nice! Loving the Caribbean vibes. Will show you more of what it’s like here in my next vlog. Had to get this off my chest first lol.

Also sorry for all the swearing mom. But also not sorry cuz IT WAS TRAUMATIC. 😉

Okay off to go get some din dins!

WIFI PROBLEMS

Travel

The struggle is real

The wifi problems have been OH SO REAL for the last week or so. Getting a video live on Youtube was a 5 – 6 hour battle that definitely gave me a few new wrinkles (great.) And posting here was just out of the question.

SO HERE I AM.

Back on the blog with two new sexy sexy edits (people tend to click more when I use the word “sexy”… so yeah) for your viewing pleasure.

The whole madness of the last week got me a bit behind on my posting schedule, but I rage about it/explain in my coming video. So we will just leave that until tomorrow when it will be live.

Hope you enjoy these vlogs!

LMK if you have any requests/things you want to see on the vlog.

IT’S BEEN A MINUTE

Travel

Hi!! It has been a HOT MINUTE!

I took a mini vacation because I had some friends visiting in Costa Rica who I haven’t seen in about a year, so it was fully necessary that we spent some quality time together.

SO GOOD TO SEE THEM. Like, it was the best.

Anywho, I am back on my regular schedule of posting every few days now.

I MISSED YOU!!!

What is going on in your world? In my world, we are close to wrapping up our time in Nosara (SADNESS!) and about to move on with our trip. Nosara is likely my fave spot in Costa Rica, for a few reasons. Mostly because I have yet to find hair in my food. Sort of kidding but also not really at all. 😉

As for what’s next… I’m not gonna tell you where we are going yet. Not because it is a national secret or something, but because we don’t know. Lol

LIVIN FAST N’ LOOSE!!!!

uhg, Im so weird rn. What else is new.

So yeah. I took a few days off, and IM BACK WITH A NEW VLOG! Watch, like, comment, gimme sweet lovin’ friends <3

MALANOCHE WATERFALL, NOSARA COSTA RICA

Travel

Malanoche Waterfall, Nosara Costa Rica

K I swear this damn waterfall is an actual conspiracy with the tourism board of Nosara.

FOR REAL.

Tours to this waterfall are offered up the ying yang for $125 USD pp, and not ONE WEBSITE TELLS YOU HOW TO GET THERE.

And it is 10 mins out of town.

How is that possible, you ask? CONSPIRACY!!!

Yeah, im one of those people.

Anywho, we beat the system and found this waterfall with only 3+ hours of hiking and near death experiences. Clearly, we won. 😉

What do you think? Would you go through what we did or take the tour?

lmk in the comments!!

LUV YOU LUV YOU. bi

EPIC BEACH DAY

Travel

Beach day at Playa Guiones, Nosara

Okay when they say “rainy season” is from “May to November”….  IT MEANS IT WILL RAIN EVERY DAY FROM MAY TO NOVEMBER. Well, it feels like every day lol.

For realz, the rain NEVER STOPS. So when it did stop for a hot minute, I got my tucus outside to enjoy the day. And am now writing to you from the safety of my AirBnb while there is yet another thunderstorm outside.

HAHAHAHA. Why tho.

As someone who grew up in Vancouver (aka the rain capital of the planet) I DO NOT APPRECIATE TRAVELING ANYWHERE THAT RAINS.

I spent the first 26 years of my life in this weather. (oh my god I am aging myself… stopping now..)

SO yah. I was excited the sun came back! And vlogged it. peep the vlog, leave a like, leave a comment, show me some lovin! The internet can be a dank-ass place so all positivity and love is appreciated. You know how it is 😉

LOVE YOU BLOGGITY FRIENDS!!!

BELEN WATERFALL, SAMARA COSTA RICA

Travel

Epic day at Belen Waterfall, in Samara Costa Rica

THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN.

Started our day in Playa Samara, which honestly wasn’t super impressive. The main thing to do there is snorkel, but it started pouring rain so that was out of the question for this particular day. (Muddy water = yucky snorkling.)

BUT, the day took a very positive turn when we found a local waterfall! 

If you are ever in Costa Rica, find allllllll the waterfalls. This spot wasn’t the biggest or most impressive waterfall I’ve seen, but I loved it for other reasons. Mostly being because we were the only ones there, and it is a totally unmarked local spot! Local = better.

Directions to the waterfall for your reference: https://www.twoweeksincostarica.com/belen-waterfall/

Anywho, back in Nosara today after our little day trip to Samara. Hope you like the vlog!

HOW TO GET BACK IN SHAPE

Training

How to get back in shape for Summer 2018

LET’S BE FITNESS BABES TOGETHER!!!

I really need this to be a group effort, because I MAJORLY FELL OFF. Ya girl has not worked out in a month and a half.

It feels like shizen. 💩 

Something about me: when I don’t workout for extended periods of time,  it doesn’t just “not feel good” in the typical 27-year old way. I feel like my body is legit breaking down. My back starts to hurt, hips hurt, everything hurtsssss when I don’t have a nice strong set of muscles to support my body.

Does this scare me? Abso-frickin-lutely. I’m terrified.

BUTTTTT for now, the best I can do is accept my pre-elderly ways and keep myself in the best shape possible. And this last month, I have done quite the opposite. Zero. Workouts. 

WHY HAVE I DONE THIS?! 😭😭😭

hahaha well, we’re here now and I shared my top 3 tips on how to get back in shape!

I may or may not have done this a time or 10 in my life. So girl knows what’s up. The tips are VERY simple, but work well for me 🙂

Make sure you give the video a ‘thumbs up’ on youtube if you liked it!
