Mexico Travel Vlog: Haven Riviera Luxury Resort (Shot on iPhone 11 Pro Max)

Hey beautiful people, it’s been a while!

 

Since I’ve been gone, I’ve submitted my last revisions for my book and celebrated my 25th birthday! I’ll be sharing more details about my book and my celebration dinner on next week’s podcast episode. However, I’m so excited to share that I was blessed to experience total royal treatment at Haven Riviera in Cancun, Mexico!

 

This travel vlog will answer THREE things:

 

1. Where you should go for a relaxing vacation *cough* (Haven Riviera in Cancun, Mexico)
2. Show you how the iPhone 11 Pro Max camera quality looks in all sorts of lighting!
3. Answer the question: should you buy the iPhone 11 Pro Max or a new vlog camera?

 

Hope you enjoy my Mexico travel vlog!

25 Biblical Affirmations to Build Your Confidence & Transform Your Life

 

What are you thinking about?

 

Probably a million of things. 

 

Okay, maybe not a million — but definitely between 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts… today. 

 

It’s proven. The National Science Foundation conducted a study and concluded that’s how many thoughts the average person has. Out of those, 80% of these thoughts are negative and 95% are the same thing we play over and over and over again.

 

This study was conducted in 2005 — before social media was all the rage it is now. So can you even imagine how much that number has increased?!

 

Actually, let’s not even think about that.

 

We don’t need science to know there’s power behind our thoughts — how our thoughts influence our lifestyle. We don’t need science to know self-criticism has the power to hold us back in a multitude of ways. 

 

What we need is a solution to fight back. The world chose affirmations; I choose the word of God.

5 Things To Do When You’re Waiting for God To Move (Advice for Dry Seasons)

There’s a season for everything.

 

Right now, mine is one that’s an overwhelming and exhausting marathon. As I prepare for launching my first book, I’m also working on my second while simultaneously trying to maintain my social media presence, write consistently on my blog, post YouTube videos, interview and edit for my podcast, and write my biweekly newsletters.

 

Needless to say, it’s been exasperating trying to “keep up.” Things have settled down some since I solidified my schedule but it’s still difficult to keep going when it isn’t the season to see the fruits of my labor. I understand that but it still, such a weird place.

 

Especially because just a few months ago, I was doing even more! I went from traveling to different countries and cities for Teen Vogue to staying at home and working on the assignments and projects God gave to me.

 

Everything feels so still.

 

And quite frankly, I am completely over it. I want out!

50+ Songs About God’s Love – The Ultimate Playlist!

 

Recently, as I was scrolling on Instagram, I came across a preview to an official music video posted by Grammy-nominated Christian artist, Jamie Grace. She invited her followers to check out her official music video for “Bella” which shared her beautiful journey from marriage to giving birth to her daughter. 

 

Of course, I had to watch!

 

Asides from the screaming and changing diapers, I’m a complete sap when it comes to babies — particularly, baby girls. (They’re so fun to dress up, don’t you think?)

 

The sweet song slips into different languages and serenely captures how God calls us each His own. As I watched the new parents coo over their precious bundle of joy, I caught a sneak peek of what our Heavenly Father must feel as He holds us in His arms.

 

I couldn’t help but think of how God gushes over us, and sings to us a new song.

Every Digital Creative Needs These Trendy Computer Glasses

 

You wake up and you check Instagram. You’re on your way to work and you answer some text messages. You work from home and you stare at your computer screen all day. You watch your favorite show and you are live tweeting the whole time. And at the slow moments of the Netflix series you are binging, you scroll through social media.

 

Our eyes just can’t seem to catch a break. It’s working double duty and paying a hefty price from all that blue light.

 

As a fashion freelance writer and business owner, I spend ample amount of time on my computer. And now that I have books to write, that time has amplified. (If you missed it, I talk about how I landed a three book deal as a first time author here.)

 

While working on my first book, I would get splitting migraines. I started to feel pains in my body and fatigue and knew something had to be done. I tried hydrating. Didn’t work. Attempted to sleep more. Didn’t work.

IMAGINE: My Word of The Year | Having Faith to Dream Bigger

Years ago, my mom ripped out an article from Charisma magazine and handed it to me for my journey back to campus. The writer, Jamie Buckingham, said, “We must dream so big that without the support that comes through favor with God and man, we could never accomplish what is in our hearts.”

 

That piece of paper has probably been long disposed of, but I recently came across the quote in an old blog post. I find it fitting, especially because “imagine” is my word of 2019.
