What I’ve been up to on my social media break!

Hi everyone! If you follow me on social media, you might have noticed I’m not currently updating! I decided for my birthday this year I would attempt to stop using Β it for 21 days… I’ve read it takes 21 days to break a habit, and I’m hoping this little hiatus will reboot my creativity and help me with some of my time management issues. So far, it’s working!!! Exciting stuff – I keep joking I may never return now! Lol I do miss seeing cute pictures and reading my friends updates, and I have so much I want to share too. Since I can’t post it on social media then why not dust off my blog and put it here! (My blog can post my updates on social meda for me so I don’t cheat on my break – how neat is that?!) So here we go…

The first week of my break, I actually got very sick which made it easy to forget about social media. By Thursday, I was starting to feel well enough to leave the house and I was able to go see Neil deGrasse Tyson’s show at the Cobb Energy Center with my family. He’s an amazing and hilarious speaker – I had such a great time!! We also got to meet him after the show for a photo and signature which was pretty neat. I hope he comes back to Atlanta soon!


Towards the weekend, my health and my creativity returned. I visited the new arcade, “Round One”, near my house to take purikura pictures with Autumn! (Baby’s first purikura?! haha) I had SO much fun!!! I couldn’t believe how many awesome games they had – I only played Tsum Tsum and did two rounds of Purikura with Autumn (which went surprisingly well!) but I hope to go back soon and try more stuff!

I’ve also been painting with water colors… I’ve started a series of kawaii themed dessert drawings. I’m not sure where I’m going with this, but right now I’m just focusing on making stuff I find fun during my break. I’ll post pictures of everything in July!

I also got to visit with my friend Jacqueline yesterday at the coffee shop, “Hodgepodge”. This was my first time going there – they had so many cool murals (love the mermaid one by artetak!) and the food and tea was delicious! I look forward to going back – especially with Autumn since they had a play area for little kids and couches. Perfect!

Well that’s where I’m at currently during my social media break! Hope you enjoyed this little update! More to come soon!!

    It’s always good to take a break especially from social media it can get overwhelming. Glad to see that your enjoying yourself and finding peace of mind. Not sure if you’ve heard about this yet but there are actually Crane phone apps where you can win prizes in Japan and have them delivered to you across the world. The main one I’ve heard about is called – β€œToreba” and I thought it might interest you. Autumn is so adorable!

    Loving your Kawaii food drawings! A shirt with the ice cream one would be so cute!

      Omg yes! I looked at toreba and was sooo tempted but historically I’ve always been bad at crane games so I was skeptical! My friend told me the crane games at round one are really easy though so maybe I’ll give it a shot next time!! Thank you for the kind words about Autumn and my art πŸ’–πŸ’• I appreciate it!!

    Wow I’m totally loving the Kawaii-dessert paintings!! I feel like I’ve only seen your digital work and I’m really excited to see you creating with watercolor! Glad you are having fun and getting the most out of your break! (Selfishly I miss seeing your posts and chatting with you!) but I know how necessary a break can be once in a while! πŸ’•
