Dollar Tree Has Good Stuff (Dollar Tree Haul)

For those of you don’t know I love shopping at dollar tree. I find decent products for just a dollar. Yeah, I said it A DOLLAR! When I was on my weekend trip in Myrtle Beach, SC. I went to their Dollar Tree and got some cool items. Enjoy the items below I’m going to show you!

I thought these little journals were so cute! When I saw them, I fell in love. I couldn’t leave them in the store. They got added to my notebook/journal collection in my room. 

I had to get a new bottle of white out. It always come in handy when I make a mistake. This is a good brand too. So, it’s a good deal to get it for a dollar.


 I thought these were decent socks to buy. They last you for a good while. I was trying to find a pack of socks that had 3 pairs instead of 2

I’m a sucker for pens with different colors. I love colorful things. I know these pens work good. So, I had to get these. Now my notebook is going to have pages full of colorful writing.


Dollar Tree makeup section have good stuff most of the time. Usually I look and see what kind of lipsticks they have. This time I got this cute lip gloss. I can’t wait to try it! Also, I love the way it looks too. Sorry for the glare on the picture. 


I had to get some snacks!

Before I go to the register, I always got to make sure I get at least one of two snacks. Dollar Tree has a good variety of snacks you can choose from. The Lifesaver gummies are my favorite! I wish they had the wild berry flavor though. It tastes better than the basic flavors.



I love eating boiled peanuts! When I saw these in the store. I had to grab them. It’s a good late-night snack.





I’m hoping you enjoyed this Dollar Tree haul. This is something I may do again if everyone enjoyed this post. If you shopped at this store before comment items you love buying from there?

Maybe it’s a Sign for Me… 

Recently, I kept seeing the word resilience. I’m assuming this word was maybe a sign for me. No matter what I read or heard on tv this word kept popping up. So, I decided to search for the meaning of this word. When I read the meaning it was relevant to what’s going on with my life now. I guess I can say maybe it’s a sign from God.

 A Better Understanding of the Word

Origin of Word: Latin

 Definition from 1) the power or ability to return to the original form, position, etc., after being bent, compressed, or stretched; elasticity. 2) ability to recover readily from illness, depression, adversity, or the like; buoyancy.

How many times have I seen the word? 4

I know I am not the only one that had this experience. Have any of you kept seeing a certain sign that you thought was for you? Like it seems like no matter what do or where you go. The sign or word keeps showing up. I’m a firm believer in everything that we acknowledge in life is meant for us to know.

10 Drake Quotes To Remember

For those of you that don’t know who Drake is, he’s a Canadian rapper that came to the United States to pursue his rapping career. Some of you may have seen his face on the show Degrassi back when he was a teenager or heard some of his music. This man is very talented. I’m a big fan of him so I always stay on top of his music (I’ll be inserting some of his music in this post). His lyrics are relatable and create quotes that some people live by. I can’t lie Drake is a very attractive man lol. Let me get back on subject. On this post, I’ll  be giving you 10 quotes that you might relate to and probably will never forget!


Drake from his Degrassi Days as Jimmy (Google Images)


1.”Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination”

2. “A relationship can give you a gut wrenching feeling sometimes. It’s a real emotional ride”

3. “A relationship without trust is like a phone without service and what do you do with a phone that doesn’t have service? play games”

4.  “We live in a generation of not being in love, and not being together. But we sure make it feel like we’re together. Because we’re scared to see each other with somebody else”

5. “Pain makes you stronger. Fear makes you braver. Heartbreak makes you wiser.”

6. “I was born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection”

7. “No matter how dirty your past is, your future is still spotless”

8. “I’m tryin’ to do better than good enough”

9. “Kill them with success and bury them with a smile”

10. ” Sometimes the most beautiful people are beautifully broken”

If you read these quotes you can see that Drake is intelligent, deep thinker, and a motivator. This is exactly why I love him as a music artist. Anything I go through I can count on his music. I probably connect to him so much because he’s a Scorpio (Zodiac sign) like me lol. Which of these quotes is your favorite?

Do I have a hidden talent?

Do I have a hidden talent? I ask myself this question many times. Honestly, I don’t know what’s my purpose on earth. I’m aware of things that I’m interested in. Maybe I haven’t had the opportunity to explore things. This is why I wish I could move somewhere that has a variety of opportunities for my career field. It’s very frustrating. Since I started blogging I have noticed a couple of things I’m good at. This gives me more of an understanding of what makes me unique. I know this post was random, but it was something that was on my mind. Let’s have a discussion. Have you discovered your hidden talent?

Definition of a Best Friend 

Talk to me on a regular 

Someone I can call during a tough time

Find time to check on me even if they are busy

Make plans to hang out often

Being trustworthy 

Never turn fake or switch up on me

Keep everything we talk about between us

Too bad it’s not easy to find a true friend like this….

Why blogging can be fun?

  • Meet new people from all over the world

I don’t know about anyone else but I think it’s exciting to meet new people from different countries, states, or cities. You’ll find others that share the same interest as you. 

  • You can write about anything you’re passionate about

Since you are the author of your blog there are no restrictions or rules that stop you from writing about any topic. Blogging is a way to express your views on topics you feel comfortable writing about. There will be people that can relate to you. 

  • A chance to showcase your God given talent

Now everyone has their own individual talent. I think blogging is a good way to showcase it. There will be others that appreciates your talent just as much as you do. 

  • You’re able to inspire others

Little do you know there may be people that truly look up to you as a blogger. Through your blog, it helps inspire them to work hard just like you. In my opinion, it always feels good to inspire anyone. 

I thought this was a good topic to write about. I hope everyone that read this post enjoyed it!

Long Distance Relationships Aren’t Bad 

Now maybe the title of this post caught your attention or you could be curious. There’s nothing wrong with trying to find out why I wrote about this topic. Anyways, most people always have a negative thought about long distance relationships. Every time someone finds out that I am in one they always saying “your boyfriend is cheating on you”, “I can’t handle being away from my boyfriend or girlfriend for too long”, “how do you trust each other.” Oh yeah, I can’t forget the famous “you’re getting catfished” response.

Most of the time I ignore these questions or statements because once I try to explain myself there is always someone trying to play the devil’s advocate. Honestly, they won’t understand what a long distance relationship feels like until they experience catching feelings for someone who’s far away. Situations like this aren’t planned. It’s not like one day I woke up saying I want to be in a long distance relationship, so let me go find someone across the world to go date.

My point is this kind of relationship isn’t bad if you and your partner truly love each other, have good communication through text messages, video chats, or phone calls and make sure you’re able to trust each other. I definitely know that’s one of the hardest things to do, but if something is going on behind your back you’ll get a strange alarming feeling that will warn you. Another point I want to make that’s referring to cheating is even someone who dates a person that lives in the same town as they do can get cheated on as well. It all depends on if your partner truly loves and care about you. If someone tries to talk down on your long distance relationship ignore them cause I’m sure they are probably with someone who they are unhappy with or that’s cheating on them or they just don’t want to see you happy. I don’t mind being in my long distance relationship because I know that my boyfriend and I appreciate our quality time more than a couple that gets to see each other every day.

Loving You

There’s fear in my heart to start loving you

Putting trust into you is a risk that might kill me

Although, you might not understand the guard over my heart

It protects you more than me

Do you want to know why?

Once I feel that pain you may cause my heart

I’m likely to cause harm to your life

You see I don’t play about my feelings

It’s a golden treasure

Made a Facebook Group for Bloggers

Hey bloggers, 

I made a Facebook group for the bloggers that follow me and anyone else that is interested in joining. In the group, you will be able to promote your blog while connecting/making blogger friends. I searched up other groups on Facebook they seemed too strict for me. Honestly, I understand everyone wants to protect their work, but I feel like my group will be more open to everyone. I did set minimum rules though just so we don’t have any unnecessary problems. I want to make this a big group to make everyone comfortable with sharing their blogs with others. I’m excited to see how far this group goes.
