Wait, it's been how long?

Guys, how long has it been since we talked? More than a year?! I can hardly believe it. It flew by.

My blogging hiatus was never intentional. I didn't mean to slip away, but I did. I got really busy and overwhelmed (still am) and I let the blog take the back burner.

Then, when I felt the urge to write, nothing come out. I felt that I had nothing worthy to say for my blog. I won't lie, sometimes it's a relief not having to worry about this blog. Not having to remember to post consistently enough. Not having to worry about the other work that comes with running a blog. Updating social media, commenting on other blogs, etc. You guys all know what I'm talking about.

But other times? I miss the hell out of this little space of mine I once so adored. I still check up on my fave blog friends every now and then. I'm a rare commenter these days, but I still enjoying reading.

I played around with the idea of switching to Wordpress, which I'd still love to do, but then I realized what an investment it is, money wise. And with how rare I am blogging, I couldn't help but ask myself if it's worth it? Maybe moving would give me the jolt I need to start blogging again? I have no idea. All I know is that today, I felt really detatched from the blogging world and the friends I've made here, and I felt like writing a little.

I was over at my friend Joey's blog, and I thought I'd use some questions she recently posted as my first post in a while. Read if you want, if not, that's OK too.

1. What's the one food you could eat forever and never get tired of?
Chipotle. Anytime I can't make a decision about where to eat, I always go there. Even if I had it the night before.

2. Best book you've read in the last 5 years?
Gone Girl. Loved it. Loved the movie too.
3. Haircut, manicure or pedicure? Which is your favorite to go have done?
All of the above? :) I get manicures most often out of all of the 3.
4. Clothes and shoes or make up and nail polish? Which are you more likely to spend all your money on?
Clothes and shoes, for sure. I have a habit of buying and forgetting about them in my closet, oops.
5. Biggest pet peeve?
Being interrupted when I'm talking.
6. A bad habit you have but wish you didn't?
Over-analyzing every little thing people say/do.
7. Would you rather be hot or cold?
Hot, for sure. I can't stand to be cold.
8. Favorite date you've ever been on?
I like low-key dates. Dinner and fro-yo and home to watch a Redbox is perfect for me.
9. Phone calendar or paper planner? If paper, which one do you use?
I really like paper planners, but I use my phone a lot too. So both?
10. How often do you "go home" to see your folks?
Luckily, my parents both live 15 min from me, so I see them at least once a week. 


3 Simple Ways to Keep Your Credit in Check

Tracking Pixel

I couldn't be happier that I received the opportunity to share my love of Credit Karma™ with my readers today. I've been a member of the site for a couple of years now, and I have never had one complaint!

Credit is something I’m striving to improve on a daily basis. Unfortunately, it’s something that I didn’t realize the importance of until my mid 20s or so. Your credit score is your financial lifeline and it is definitely something that you need to keep a track of.

Today I’m going to talk about the three ways that I keep my credit in check with the help of Credit Karma™.
  • I view my score - which is updated on a weekly basis!!!

This number means a lot to lenders. It can be used to evaluate whether or not you’re approved for a car, a house, or a credit card. It can determine the interest rate and credit limit you’re approved for. I love watching this number and see how it changes while I’m working on improving it. It’s nice to see an update weekly.

  • I keep track of my balances

Credit Karma™ pulls your debts and shows your balance and breaks each number and creditor down for you. It allows you to see your history with that creditor in lots of detail. You can really stay on top of late or missed payments, your balances, your limits and more. Trying to make those balances go down becomes addicting when you can visualize it!

  • I receive alerts to my credit report
Credit Karma™ alerts you when there’s a change to your report. When an account is added to collections, you get notified. When a company did a credit inquiry on you, you’re notified. You can easily see what’s being done at all times, and this helps you keep a handle on your report and make sure nothing fraudulent is happening.

The best part of Credit Karma™ though? It’s absolutely FREE. That’s what sold me, for sure! I believe all people should have access to their credit without any hassle and that’s exactly what Credit Karma™ provides. You can view your full credit report, your credit score, and any other pertinent information related to your credit. It’s all made available to you!

What are you waiting for? Get over to Credit Karma™ now and get signed up so that you can get started on keeping your credit in check!

Nate is back!!! I missed him so much, and so did Binky. SO nice not being alone in the apartment. I tend to freak myself out sometimes when I'm alone.

Yet another week that has flown by. Can't believe it's already Friday!


Another week where I have nothing to say :( I hate that I'm not blogging, I really do.

But, my computer is SHOT right now. I'm actually blogging from Nate's computer right now. I need a new one so badly, especially since one of my classes starts in 2 weeks. And it's solely online. :-/

This is my worst post ever. I hope you're all having a great week though. Miss y'all!
