Photos|Sweetwater Adventures

Hi Friends!

I really enjoyed sharing my favorite flowers pictures and 4th of July pictures with you all and decided to share some more of my favorite pictures from my trips to Sweetwater over the past few weeks. I went once with my mother, then once with my sister. Both trips were on the same hiking trail, but we had very different experiences. Hiking is one of my favorite things to do, and I love sharing the experience with others. I hope you all enjoy.

Monday Motivation: Getting My Act Together

10

Hi Friends!

After last weekend(4th of July weekend I mean), I’ve been needing some much-needed motivation to eat healthy. I had so many sweets and unhealthy food that it kind of ruined my diet for the rest of the week. Then this weekend I had a party to go to and I tried to eat healthy, but there was some Oreo dirt cake that was calling my name. So after a week and a weekend of unhealthy eating, I’ve decided to try and get back on my health kick with some goals for the week.

Photos|4th of July Weekend

Hi Friends!

I really had an amazing 4th of July weekend(it was a 4 day weekend for me). It was pretty laid back this year for 4th of July. We woke up early on the 4th and we went walking at a park for a while. I think my favorite shot was of my dog on the porch, but I also really like the flower shot. The rest of the day we spent relaxing, grilling out, and enjoying our day. Well, we did have a bit of a storm pop up, so we had to work around that and make our food inside instead of grilling out. The only part I wasn’t as happy with is the fireworks scaring my furbabies. Yes, I love watching fireworks, but it is not as fun when my furbabies are scared out of their mind. The good news is that a few treats helped soothe them down a bit. I woke up this morning(the 5th) and compiled my favorite pics from the 4th(and some of the evening before). I hope you all enjoy.

Easy 4th of July Treats

8

Hi Friends!

I am not the best when it comes to cooking and baking. I’ve had more than my fair share of kitchen disasters over my almost 21 years of life. However, as I am getting older, I would love to try and do more things in the kitchen. While my family and I are trying to eat healthy and be active, we are going to splurge a little over the next few days with it being a holiday. With that in mind, I decided to try to bake some treats for my family, and I have three recipes that I want to share with you all. Enjoy! Continue reading

My Favorite Face Mask

Hi Friends!

Before I get started, I want to go ahead note that I am aware this product has been around for a few years, but I just recently started using it and I love it! 🙂

Alright, now that we have that out of the way, I want to talk to you about a clay mask that I’m currently obsessed with. I am one of those people who tend to slack off in the skincare routine. I don’t mean to, but it usually ends up on the part of my to-do list that doesn’t always get done. That being said, the month of July is going to be a big month for life changes for me. One of which will be my skincare. I want to make my skin a priority in hopes of feeling better and happier about the way my skin looks and feels. To be honest, though, the price is usually a big deal for me. If I ever spend more than $8-10 dollars on skincare it is usually a splurge buy. That being said, Freeman has always been a brand that I like and is super inexpensive. I bought this mask for $3 or $4. Continue reading

Review: Pretty Little Liars (Series Finale)

Hi Friends!

I was debating on doing this post, because I am still so dead after last night’s episode. The last ever episode of Pretty Little Liars aired last night, and you best believe I cried my eyes out. I actually spent most of my day re-watching the last nine episodes that led up to the finale. So I was all PLL’d out the whole day, so when the finale started, I was already emotional AF. I want to comment on my thoughts on some parts of the episode, so if you haven’t watched, come back and read after you have. (SPOILERS BELOW)

Kicking Off Summer Playlist

Hi Friends!2017-06-25 12.07.44 1

Music is something that has always been important to me. I use music for inspiration when I am writing, for a way to relax, to help get through long car rides, and to get me through the last mile when I work out. Summer officially started last week, and I realized that I have kind of created a playlist to kick of the Summer. I have listened to this playlist practically every day for the past week. It motivates me to get stuff done and relaxes me if need be. Check out these songs and let me know what you think! My favorite song is Bleachers, what is yours?

My Favorite Flower Shots

Hi Friends!

So I’ve been thinking about sharing my love for photography on this blog. Now I want to disclaim that I am in no way a professional photographer. I actually take most of my pictures on my phone. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to take my mother’s camera and take pictures and videos. There was something about capturing a moment that intrigued me. So with that in mind, here are some of my favorite flower pictures that I have taken over the past few weeks:

When I take pictures of flowers, I find myself attracted to bright colors and lots of green leaves around. My favorite picture is the yellow gazania flower in the bottom left. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I’m in love with it. If you happen to like my pictures, I post often on my Instagram: annamaxwell018

Let me know what you think of my pictures, and feel free to share this post with your friends 🙂

Summer Bucket List

Hi Friends!

photo created by me

I decided to do this Summer Bucket List after realizing that I really need to change things by getting out and doing somethings before the Summer is over. Not everything on this list is going to be outdoors, but I have a lot of outdoor goals to do before the end of the Summer. I think this list my change over time, but my plan is to just have a basic list that can be added to. Hopefully, if all goes well, I will give a completion blog post at the end of Summer. Or you can follow me on my social media to see my progress. Continue reading

Happy Father’s Day!

Hi friends!3f

I know that every day we should celebrate how amazing our parents are. I know I do. Through the good times and the bad, I am so incredibly grateful for everything my parents have done for me over the years. Growing up we didn’t have that much money, but it was through the adventures and the little things that made our childhood. On this Father’s Day, I was able to buy my dad some of his favorite things. Which includes Butter Pecan Ice cream(his favorite), Bath and Body Works candles(we both love them a lot), some new cologne, and mixed nuts. While they may not be a big fancy TV’s or computers, the little things matter a lot in our family 🙂

My dad I have our differences at times, but I love him so freaking much! I know everyone will probably want to be spending time with their father’s today, I will leave you with some of my favorite pictures. I hope everyone has a great Father’s Day!
