10 Things About Me Thursday (◕‿◕✿)

giphy (9)

Wassup my pretty little ninjas. Another day, another dolla right?? RIGHT? Trying to keep motivated on this Thursday…. did a really great workout this morning in a bootcamp style class that was half on the treadmill and half on the floor doing stuff with weights and bands. Thought I’d make a list of some stuff that I’m feelin’ right now so you can get to know me better or something like that….

My Favorite Movie

I really thought Trainwreck with Amy Schumer was pure hilarity. Colton and I actually saw it twice…two days in a row. Cause we’re weirdo freaks like that. One of my hobbies is studying comedy….the setup, jokes, etc. It’s pretty fascinating but stupidly nerdy once you get into it. Trav is also a total comedy nerd! He knows literally every episode and storyline of “How I Met Your Mother”.

Favorite TV Show:

AHS!!!!!!!!!!!

HOTEL

AND

COVEN

Was too weaksauce to watch this before….but now that I’m into it I can’t stop!!! Currently binge watching the Coven season.

Favorite game

Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer

You guys…..I just bought it for my DS. I haven’t opened yet. I’m waiting for one of those rainy day kinda PMS kinda do nothing but sit on my ass kind of days to binge play it.

I was so obsessed with Animal Crossing New Leaf for awhile!!! My friends thought I was crazy because I would keep having to cancel plans on them because I had already promised my hippo neighbor that I would meet up with him at his house at 6:30 pm tonight or something of that nature and CAN’T just not show UP! That would be so rude and I didn’t want any of my neighbors to move away or be disappointed in me as mayor. Or we would be in the middle of sushi and I’d have to turn my DS on and show up to do something for one of the animals and everyone in the REAL world literally thought I was nuts. I will say though, my cyber friends thought I was DOPEEEE.

Roommates or Live Alone:

ROOMMATES!

Something You Struggle With:

Insecurity – it’s an ongoing battle people! But that’s for another time…

3 Apps I Love

ClassPass – If you are like me and love trying new types of workouts and constantly being challenged I recommend this!

Postmates- Humans delivering other humans anything humanely possible. It makes me even lazier as a human, but that’s fine by me.

Audible – I’ve been really getting into audiobooks lately. Again, it makes me lazier, as I don’t physically have to read with my eyes, BUT it does give me the ability to do multiple things at once. This week, I’ve been taking Jesse on super long walks around my neighborhood whilst listening to Mindy Kaling’s new book, Why Not Me.

Also, I’ve been snappin’ more lately. If you wanna see stupid stuff follow me: almakixo

What I do for workouts

Reformer pilates

Hot yoga

Bootcamp style classes mixing cardio with strength training

Dance in my living room.

Eat food really fast. So it’s like I’m burning calories. Yep. Cool.

Something embarrassing that happened to me recently:

I tweeted about this but I sprayed room spray directly into my eyes burning and blinding my eyes in the middle of Kitson yesterday.

What I do when I’m sad:

Eat Sourpatch kids, Cherry garcia ice cream and watch lots and lots of Korean dramas. (FYI, Boys Over Flowers is seriously the best) Also, going to Target and buying myself something fun to take my mind off of stuff helps. I’ll get a new book, a couple of yummy candles, or a pair of fun leggings!

Something I’m looking forward to for 2016:

Traveling. A lot of it is happening.

Fav food

Sushi 4 lyfe.

Now I have a question for you…..what is something that you are LOVING right now?? It could be anything…

Love yall

Trendy Tuesday ☮

IMG_3745

Hi bootyfulssssss!!!!

Thought I’d share with you a few things I’m feelin’ on this lovely Tuesday afternoon.

HATS!!!!!!

I love wearing hats. It’s my excuse to not wear makeup or shower and still feel like I’m not disgusting. It also can be that last addition to an outfit to make it feel complete. I seriously think hats are an underrated accessory…I love the shit out of them.

MY PICK TO WORKOUT IN:

IMG_3743

When I workout in a baseball cap it keeps me more focused and thinking about myself and my own body rather than staring at the girl in the room with the best bod. Basically, it’s like blinders for me. Stay in your lane girl! Brandy Melville has a bunch of great baseball caps that I use to work out in that have fun slogans on them. They’re lightweight and floppy which makes it easy to throw them in the wash. Click here for the Uh Huh Honey hat I’m wearing!

MY PICK TO GO SHOPPING IN: GENTS Baseball Cap

IMG_3297

GENTS makes the best hats! They’ve really mastered the perfect shape of a baseball style cap without making it look too boxy or floppy. It’s literally right in between! I ordered a few in a couple different colors to pop on my head when I need to run into the mall or meet up for a quick lunch with friends.

♬ NEW MUSIC

Alessia Cara

This girl has really captured my attention as of late with her song “Here” which describes how I feel at every party I ever go to.

I’m sorry if I seem uninterested
Oh I’m not listenin’, oh I’m indifferent
Truly I ain’t got no business here
But since my friends are here, I just came to kick it
But really I would rather be at home all by myself
Not in this room with people who don’t even care about my well being

Yay for all the homebody antisocials out there!!! She just posted this awesome cover of Nick Jonas’ song “Levels” and she slaysssss it.

Zara Larsson

Also, this song I found on a Spotify playlist and it’s so good. Makes me think about past relationships or people in my life that I don’t see anymore….

Travis Atreo

Finally, if you haven’t heard Trav’s cover of “What Do You Mean” you besta check it out. Although I’m a little biased, I honestly think Trav is seriously so talented. He has a way of bringing so much emotion to any song that really makes me hear the heart and story of the song. I always listen to his playlists when I’m on the plane, studying, or going through something stressful. Subscribe to his channel if you haven’t already!

That’s it! Love you bootyfuls. 🙂

The Walk Bag

B3My uber talented cousin Brianna Honkawa D’Estries designed this fav……and she’s only 17!!! She’s such a sweetheart and gave me one last time I saw her and I love the crap out of it. The bright funky colors and functional shape and pockets make it the perfect Boho chic bag to rock when you’re on the go. Best part is, every single bag is 100% handmade by craftswomen in Vietnam making each one completely unique. Here’s the link to her Etsy shop to get one of your own: Book River Etsy Shop I’m going to have her guest blog on here in a few weeks so ya’ll can get a taste of her amazing style and talents.

Rob Lowe’s book: “Stories I Only Tell My Friends”
Without a doubt one of my favorite reads EVER. Whether you are in the industry or not, there is much to be learned from Rob’s incessantly entertaining and autobiographical accounts of his life as an actor. After the last page, I felt like I was BFFS with Mr. Lowe.
