MIMM: Last days of summer

Spread the love

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! It is the last week of August, are you sad? I kind of am. This summer was kind of lame for me. Well, I mean, it wasn’t bad. The weather was amazing – I love hot weather like this. But I didn’t really do anything. I haven’t gone to the beach once. I haven’t gone boating. I haven’t gone to any music festivals. I did day parties maybe only 3 or 4 times. No BBQs. No vacations away from the city.

Wow, well I definitely feel even worse now haha, way to go Kammie. Well, I did my internship this summer so I stayed busy and then I work on the weekends so I didn’t have much time to do anything else. Plus I am still too self conscious about my body to expose it by going to the beach. Unfortunately. I did spend a lot of time this summer working out though and getting healthier. This is the one success I have had and I think it’s marvelous in itself. I did manage to lose for more weight although I am not at my goal yet but I have seen improvement in myself in that area. Truth be told, I don’t really even mind having such a chill summer. It was okay. It was relaxing. I actually like working. But it was my last summer before going out in the real world and before my last year of college so maybe I should have taken more advantage of that instead of getting my insecurities the best of me. Oh well. There’s always next year!

A marvelous thing is that I wrote a guest post for Yellow Haired Girl about my favorite iPhone apps, fitness related but also random fun ones, and if you have an iPhone, you should definitely check it out here.

I love my iPhone… but I don’t love its battery life 🙁

A marvelous book I’m about to start reading. Right as soon as I’m done with this guilty pleasure 😉 Unfortunately, Gone Girl hasn’t become available in my library yet so I won’t be able to participate in PBF’s book club this month :/ Next time.

Speaking of books, I have added a marvelous page to my blog titled “Books” in which you can find all of the book reviews I have done since starting my blog. It will be updated regularly 🙂 Because I’m a book nerd.

A marvelous giveaway I’m doing for carb-conscious protein diet bars. These babies are gluten free, sugar free, and under 200 calories a pop. Worth a shot, no? The giveaway is open until September 6th, so you’ve got some time 🙂

Chocolate Covered Banana Nut protein bar – yummz

  2. You are so beautiful!

    I agree, love my iphone but the battery sucks! I might get one of those power charge battery things, I am not sure exactly what they are called, lol!

    Happy week to you!

    • You are the sweetest! <3

      Power charge battery thing... Hmmmmm, interesting! haha. It's so weird because mine will charge SO quickly too but then it will die just as quickly. I'd rather have it take longer charging and then be alive longer. Silly iPhones.. haha.

  3. It’s crazy scary how quickly time passes by, right? HOW the heck is it almost September? The changing of the seasons has always been a sad time for me for some reason. I guess it’s just a reminder of how quickly life passes by us! Anyway, try to embrace this time and don’t have any regrets about this summer – you did what you felt like doing and it made you happy. And girl you are absolutely stunning all over so hide your fears and realize that when people see you they see a beautiful person 🙂

  4. The “book review” page is a great idea. Gonna dig into it as soon as I leave the office.

  5. I had a pretty chill summer also…and it feels like it’s just getting started! So crazy that summer is almost over.
