It feels like I just sat down to write April’s Life Lately, this year is just flying by! In April I was boughed down with a ton of work, which is good, not complaining but I didn’t get to do a lot. So far in May I’ve had a good break from it all, but I am working this weekend, and I have a very busy two weeks coming up. I am VERY excited about the projects that I am working on, and I hope to share my projects very soon. I can’t share what I’m working on right now because the final product needs to be announced by my clients first, as it should be, then I will be over the moon to share with all of you.
I am still working on revamping my portfolio site, but most changes have been made that I wanted. I just need to update projects and photos now, not sure when I will have time to do that. It’s on the back burner for now.
To start the month off I participated in the Spring Sweet Progress Box Swap, which is always so much fun to do. I almost missed it though because I’ve been so busy and not on social media nearly as much as I am normally. But it all worked out, Ashley reached out to me, and I adore the blogger I was paired with. So thankful to be part of such a wonderful community of ladies.
I did win a little giveaway for $50 credit to one of my favorite sticker shops- WilaWalo Co– she does some amazing kawaii work, with her own take on unicorns, her character’s name is Gertie and is just too stinking cute. I highly recommend her shop, super affordable, and quick shipping (I think you can also use code: erica15 and get 15% off your order). Speaking of stickers the PBC sale was this weekend, it’s a massive sale that happens quarterly, it had a bunch of my favorite shops in it so I went on a bit of shopping spree. I’m really proud of myself for staying on budget, and using gift certificates that I had been saving.
At the end of April I hit 300 followers on my instagram for my planner which blows my mind! I had a little giveaway for it, which had a really good turn out, so I will defiantly be doing more giveaways in the future. For whatever reason I really like doing giveaways. It’s like the best feeling in the world to spread a little happiness around. My next giveaway will be either when I get to 450 or 500 followers. Right now I’m leaning more towards 500, but that could change.
I also got the Flamingo traveler’s notebook bundle I had ordered back in February. I am in LOVE with it! I’ve also been doing a fair job with keeping up on journaling everyday. I’ve been a bit to busy to post on twitter, but I did get caught up today, hopefully I can stay caught up. But, something tells me I am going to get behind again, just because I am so busy, and am only going to get busier as summer comes.
I was finally able to see Beauty & The Beast – we had meant to see it two previous times and it just didn’t work out. But my mom and I finally saw it, and it was AMAZING! Emma Watson is the perfect Belle! It’s also really nice to see her grow as an actress. I remember hating her at times in the Harry Potter movies, like she was SO awful. But I think she did a good job this time. Since Beauty & The Beast was so good in my opinion, I’m really looking forward to Mulan and The Little Mermaid movies. When we went to go see Beauty and The Beast, I ran into one of my high school friend’s sister which was really nice. This lead me to reaching out and meeting up with my old friend, and it’s really nice that we’ve reconnected and I’m looking forward to staying in contact with her.
For Mother’s day we did something a bit different this year. Normally my mom and I take off for the weekend and just do our own thing. This year my mom asked if we could go mini golfing, and of course I said yes. Why deny my mom the fun of mini golf? So then she asked if Zach (my BF) and his mom would like to join us. So we all went mini golfing together and it was really fun! I’m really glad we all had a chance to hang out. Also I’m terrible at mini golf! haha.
I think that covers the main events that have happened…though I feel like I’m forgetting something. Don’t you just hate that feeling?!
