I feel like I have some explaining to do for the unannounced hiatus... ! My apologies if you are an avid reader of Kristine's Kreation's. I have no valid excuse as to why but I do plan on getting back into the blogging groove and adding a couple of changes to keep things zesty like this particular post! One of my absolute favorite things to watch on YouTube besides "what I eat in a days" are monthly favorites videos from my favorite YouTubers like Megan Batoon (my idol!!!) and Whitney Simmons (the goddess of fitness!!). It's simply a video of them discussing their opinion on products they've fallen in love with during the month. Sounds kinda lame upfront as I type this up but I pinky promise they're pretty spiffy!
Anywhosies, some of the things I have been brainstorming about on implementing on the blog are the following:
So there's just a gist of what's been going through my noggin during the month of October. I am gearing toward creating things that have will hopefully serve a purpose in someone's life whether it is to inspire, to educate, to inform, and/or to entertain. I want to be able to make a difference in someone's life through what I put out on the Internet and it could be as little as, "I went to this restaurant because of you and it was awesome sauce!!" Well actually, that's not even a little thing because I absolutely LOVE it when people tell me that they used @meow_eats to help dictate what they at that day. It's so neat!! :")
I digress - as per usual *shrugging girl emoji with purple shirt* With all these I want to tackle as we end the year, I feel as though I want to do so much but there's so little time in the day when I have to deal with the day-to-day tasks (school, work, work, work, social lyfe, @meow_eats, Bob, keeping the apartment spic and span, and most importantly, my overall well-being***). I go to sleep every night excited and beyond grateful for the new day to arrive because I am able to invest time in these things despite how hectic my schedule can get.
I'll gush more about this later for sure!! Thank you so much if you're reading this now. I truly appreciate each and every one of you guys. Y'all inspire me more than you ever know to dive into the unknown at any given opportunity. You don't know how thrilled I am to take you along to this beautiful journey :-) I love you to bits and pieces and hope you're living to your full potential because you have so much to give to this world, too!!
I did a September highlights on my Tumblr last month just to recap on how awesome September was and simply wanted to do it again since I regularly reflect on how life's been!
So stoked for what November has in store for me! Bring in the joy ♡
OH MY LANTA. Ok so your girl is still making baby steps toward veganism and this... this right here is my--I was just about to quote a $oulja Boy song, please disregard hahaha--this is a total game changer in the cream cheese world! I would eat this instead of regular plain Philly cream cheese. Yup, I said it. I drove all the way to Whole Food's in Hillcrest (about 20 minutes away from) just for this when I first tried it!! Then recently discovered a week later that the Sprouts' in Eastlake carries it. YAY!!!
This book makes me feel like a BADASS. That's as simple as it gets!! I'm a huge sucker for self-improvement books and this one here ranks in my top 5, no doubt. Spiderwebs. (+5 if you get me) Anywhosies, I find myself looking back into this book and reading specific excerpts just to remind myself how much of a badass I truly am. GET THIS BOOK!!
This vegan ice cream is absolutely divine!! I mean let's be real, you can't go wrong with the combination peanut butter and Oreo cookies. There's really no room for error at all whatsoever. Just trust me on this, ok??
I drank London fogs all throughout summer but with almond milk! Changed it up in October by ordering one with soymilk and not sure if I'm going back anytime soon!! Teehee.
Special shout out to Lei Lei--and/or Tori or Storm??! I just remember Leia telling me about this nail polish because of Tori and/or Storm bought it at Target. $18 upfront but I know I'll be saving money in the long run by painting my nails on my own rather than hitting up Yumi's Nails on Broadway every month for $50 a pop (pedi and mani, plus tip). The package advertises up to "14 days of stylish wear" but I've been rocking this pretty polish for a solid 3+ weeks now! Muy bueno :-)
$4.99 for Spotify and Hulu for college students??! Praise the Lord! I was more so a Netflix fan (or more so a leech thanks to Alicia jajaja) but Hulu is the MVP for having some of my Food Network favorites like Good Eats, Chopped, Triple D!!!, and Cutthroat Kitchen as well as Ricky & Morty!
