Inspire Me

"Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally." David Frost

That's actually the full quote, but I love making pic-quotes as my phone wallpaper so I just took a snippet. 

So it has prolly been well over a month since I started my Etsy shop and a big fat "0" in sales. Before I opened up shop I read a bunch of articles from successful etsians that it is usually a rough start, one even having only two sales during the first 3 months! But I was slowly starting to get delayed. You know like a balloon slowly losing its air. And while I still enjoy the local sales, I have dreams that my beauties will cross oceans and mountains! And guess what!?!? It finally did! My first sale earlier this making its way over to Spain woohoo!!! 

So for all of you out there, whatever dreams and goals you have set for yourself but don't feel like you're necessarily meeting right now, don't give up!!! If you want it, you will eventually achieve it! Happy Friday!

Weekend Happenings

This weekend eM and I oinked out on some oishii Japanese food at Takami. We've been here a few times already and I always love sitting in their semi-outdoor patio on the 21st floor overlooking the skylines of downtown LA. One fun-filled night of gorgeous views, good food, kick-ass drinks, sweet desserts, and rockin' company...all for $175...thanks hun!! ;)

On Saturday Melanie from was so sweet to do a guest post of one of her awesome guacamole receipes. Check it out here. I haven't tried it yet but definitely something I would make for my hot latino someday. Thanks again girl!

So recenlty, like two weeks ago recent, I set weekly running goals to keep myself on track because it's just that easy to make excuses to not run or run less. Goal is 3 times a week and each time increasing distance by 0.05 miles, no stopping during the run, and improving in time. Met goal this week? Check. Total miles ran? 13.06 miles. Awesome! {pats myself on the back}

St. Patty's Day ma and I chowed down some Roll & Rye corned beef cabbage. That's about all I did for the holiday...well, I did wear green if that counts haha! Pretty low key. 

How was your weekend? I would love to hear about it!
