Teaching My Grandpa How To Use A Computer

I’m a blogger, so I spend more time in front of a computer than most.

Like, legit, from the time I get home from my full-time desk job, I’m probably on the computer for at least another three hours each night.

So I know stuff about technology, right?!

I don’t know EVERYTHING, but I know SOMETHING.

Otherwise this whole blogging thing would be an epic failure.

But you know what that knowledge comes with?

Constant questions from my family members about using technology.

Likeeeeee my grandpa. This guy right here. Rolando Mollinedo.

YOU CAN BE FRIENDS WITH HIM ON FACEBOOK!

Healthy Snacks

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, then you already know that I’ve been trying really hard to eat healthier.

I don’t know, man. I used to be able to eat whatever I wanted, but now at 25, things are catching up to me so I have to be a little more intentional about the things I’m eating.

I’ve been reading a few books about food lately, and they’ve really inspired me to make healthier food choices.

Easy Ways To Save Money With Groupon Coupons

It’s no secret that I love saving money.

Okay, fine… I love SPENDING money, but I feel so much better about it when I get good deals!

Don’t lie…you do too!

Us twentysomethings, we’ve got bills to pay, people! So the more money we can save on stuff, the better.

I’ve always been a big fan of Groupon, but I didn’t know that Groupon Coupons existed until recently.

Here’s what the site looks like:

Wear To Work Wednesday

wear to work wednesday

  1. Ann Taylor Floral Pencil Skirt //This summer I’m all about florals, guys! I’m all about beautiful prints and bringing them with me to work! Who said you can’t look super sophisticated and like a total boss lady with flowers on your butt?! Love this one from Ann Taylor.
  2. J Crew Promotion Dress//I love that this dress is called the promotion dress. Because really, that’s exactly what it looks like. You look like a million dollars in it. Look at that model, man. She looks beautiful and smart and powerful. All things that I want to look like, when I’m at work, especially.
  3. Forever 21 Collarless Open Front Blazer//I’m obsessed with this blazer because I think it’s so fun. I absolutely love the color, and I love that you can use it for so many different purposes. You can pair it with a nice pair of slacks or a pencil skirt, or if you’re like me and have casual Fridays where jeans are allowed, you can throw this over any sleek t-shirt, and you’ll look casual but still put together.
  4. J Crew Crystal Venus Flytrap Necklace // Oh, come on. There’s nothing bad you can say about this necklace. I love necklaces like this one because you can wear it with almost anything. Love me a bold necklace, and this one is really feminine and flirty, so I love it even more.

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

EPCOT'S FLOWER & GARDENFESTIVAL

A couple weeks ago, Joe and I escaped for the weekend and went to Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival.

I probably gained 7 pounds while we were there, but ahhhh we had so much fun!!

Just to give you an idea of how beautiful everything was, I didn’t edit ANY of these photos.

I’ll usually add some brightness to them in Photoshop, but no. Not these. That’s how pretty the day was.

So I got a new computer the other day, and I’m really excited about it!

My old MacBook was dying a slow death, so it was time for an upgrade.

And to be honest, I felt like I was cheating on my boyfriend at first.

I’ve been a Mac user my entire adult life, so it was really weird to be using something that wasn’t a Mac.

But OMG guys, I really have to tell you that I was insanely impressed by the Dell Inspiron.

Here’s how I’m using it for blogging these days:
