So the other day I was watching YouTube and got this idea from Alfie Deyes from Pointless Blog. I find summer never lasts long enough in Canada so I thought this would be a fun idea to try. I always find that by the end of summer you never end up doing as much as you originally wanted. 
So this is my list of 15 things I would like to do this summer. I challenge you guys to do the same  weather you keep a journal like Alfie suggested or film it, its up to you. I would like to film these adventures and share them with all of you guys. 

15 Things To Do This Summer 

1. Walk along the beach at night 
2. Stargazing 
3. Eat healthier / Make more different smoothies

My Oh My How the Blogging Times Have Changed

This work, is a derivative of "Typing" by Sebastien Wiertz, used under CC BY.

Today I wanted to take some time and chat about blogging, and just a few things that I have noticed change since I originally started blogging back in 2007. 
When I started blogging sites like Who, What, Wear and Bryan Boy were really just starting up. There was really no social media and what was there didn't have as big of an impact as it does today. There wasn't any YouTube "Celebrities" and Shay Carl couldn't have imaged selling a YouTube network for over $500,000. It was easier to get noticed for your work, you still had to put your time in and pay your dues but there wasn't as much white noise out in the inter webs. 
As I try to get back into the blogging world I have found this new era (if we can call it this) a little bit tougher then before. I often sit back and question if I should be more active on social media but when I pull up Twitter I have writers block. Who knew it would be so hard to come up with 140 characters to sum up how your day is going! Or as sit watching my YouTube subscription feed for two hours if I should integrate video into my blog. 
I sit and look at my desk calendar trying to plan out post whilst I have full time job, a fiancé that would like to plan a wedding with, along with family and friends. However I know some of you out there are going through the same things and still some how make it work. If those people are reading this please give me some tips to stay relevant please.
I wanted to get back into blogging because I enjoy it! I have anyways enjoyed writing and being able to talk about what I like and enjoy in life. When the pressures of work seem to be to much this is my tiny escape. Or even when I feel like I just want to share something interesting with someone somewhere in the world. A lot has changed in the world of blogging and vlogging as well I suppose. So how do we stay relevant and up to date in the world of blogging? Are we just suppose to go with the flow and change as the world changes? Should we embraced the new ideals of 2014 and just go with it and see where it can take us? 
All of this seems so daunting yet exciting for a girl who started a blog for a high school computer project back in 2007. 
Please let me know how you keep up with the ever changing internet. 
Leave comments with any tip or tricks.
Do you think bloggers (including me) should occasionally break away from the keyboards and turn on the video cameras?

May Favourites

For the month of May I don't really have to much newness. I honestly haven't been trying anything really new, but the few things that I have tried I absolutely love. Some of these items I have been looking at for awhile now and finally just bite the bullet and bought. So lets get into the goodness that is May faves.

First on the list is my Fossil watch, I have been on the hunt for a great watch for some time know and finally stumbled upon this guy. I love that its two toned with the gold and tortoise shell in between. I honestly have been wearing this guy with everything! 

The trendy midi rings are next on my list. I got these little guys at Forever 21 for under two dollars so how could I pass them up.  With trendy things like these I don't really like spending lots of money since I don't know how long this trend will stick around. Also I tend to have ADD when it comes to trends where I will get bored of them super fast. But for less then 2 dollars I think I try it out for a few months. 

Since we are talking about accessories I dug out my Coach bag for spring and fell in love with it all over again. This little bag has been great for the spring and can easily go with anything in my wardrobe, can't say enough about this Coach bag.

This little beauty product I honestly have been look at for ages and I finally caved and bought it. Let me just tell you I am so happy that I did. This has been my go to for spring when I started to wear more skirts and dress as the weather started to turn. This little gem is amazing, its not orange and its gives you just the right about of colour to make you legs flawless. I also will be the first to admit I am the worst at sunless tanning. I always seem to get blotchy and streaky no matter if I exfoliate and use a mitt to apply. With this you just spray in your hand and rub in and it applies so evenly its idiot proof for people like me! The best part is its instant and one day only, so if you decide last minuet you want to wear a skirt take this out and your legs will look amazing! 

My last favourite for this month is an you tuber who I have been following for awhile now. I can not get enough of youtube lately. The first thing I do when I get home is sit down and watch my subscription feed then later Adam and I will sit for hours just watching random videos and fails. Sawyer Hartman make incredible short films and some hilarious challenges with fellow you tubers. To be able to watch his progression in film making is amazing, he just keeps getting better! I can not wait to be able to see his films on the big screen one day. Below is his latest short film Welcome to Tokyo, take a moment and watch if you like definitely go over to his channel and subscribe cause its only going to get better!
