Life Update 4.20

April is one of those months where you start yearning for warmer weather. Summer is right around the corner and thoughts of beaches and pools are on people’s minds. Not me though. The only thing I have in mind is how fast I need May to come! April is one of those months where there are too many things to do and too little time to accomplish it.

Savir Blogs: After speaking about how I was being consistent with posting, this month I haven’t posted as much. I realized that when I’m too busy at work it affects my motivation to do any other activity after work. I am trying to catch up so hopefully I can get back on schedule.

Weight: I have been so busy that I haven’t even had the motivation to work out after work. Usually I don’t worry too much about not being able to work out because I get a good walk in during work but this month has been too busy. On a normal work day I am able to close out all my rings on my watch but I’ve been slacking on that. I did get complimented on losing some weight so it looks like my exercises in March worked! 

Vacation: I haven’t taken a vacation since June 2021. This year I definitely plan on changing that! A problem that I’m seeing is that flights are expensive now! Flights are double what I usually pay. That definitely puts me at a disadvantage because I would have to save more so I could be able to vacation properly. There is nothing worse than vacationing with a tight budget! The good thing is I have some flight credits that I could use but I know it won’t be enough for all my travels. So far I have plans to go to Texas and California to visit family.

The good news is that although I’ve come across some minor challenges, free time is coming soon. I will be able to go back to my daily walks and a consistent posting schedule. Hopefully by the next life update I will have more positive things to share.

Amazon Unboxing III

Sometimes shopping on Amazon is more convenient than going to the store. For this unboxing, I received some essentials like Q-tips and panty liners. There isn’t much to say about these since they are commonly purchased items.

What was new was the Fujifilm mini film. My Instax camera needed new film so off I went to buy some more. I like to use my camera when I’m with my family. I’ll just pull out the camera and start taking pictures. It definitely reminds me of how we used to take pictures back in the day. The camera is also a hit with everyone!

The best thing to arrive in this box was the AirPods Pro case. I’m very picky when it comes to AirPods cases because I like the ones that have the lid attached to the body. I find it more secure if the case is in one piece. There’s rarely cute one piece cases so I stuck with a basic silicone design. The one I purchased came with a carabiner and hand strap. Both are really useful!

The last item in the box was for my coffee starter pack. I bought the Atlas Coffee Club because it included coffee beans from 4 different countries: India, Nicaragua, Uganda, and Peru. I got the beans so that the Mr. Coffee grinder from the last unboxing could be put to use. This was the only item I was waiting for to complete the starter pack and I was finally able to give it to my friend.

March Palette of the Month

I have a couple of eyeshadow palettes that I don’t use out of laziness. I say that I’m going to use them for special occasions but the reality of it is that those special occasions only come around like once a quarter. For that reason, I decided that this was the year that I would wear eyeshadow to work and I would rotate between the palettes that I have.

This month I decided to use Maybelline’s The City Mini Palette in Hi-Rise Sunset. I picked this up a couple of weeks ago (unbagging coming at some point) from Walgreens. I thought it was perfect for my preferred work eyelook – one color. It was also right up my alley in terms of color so I purchased it knowing that I really didn’t need any more palettes. My justification was that I was keeping up with my goal!

Welcome to Savir Blogs

Hey there! I’m Jessica from Newark, NJ. I am a first generation American, born to Salvadoran immigrants in the late 80s. I started “Savir Blogs” on a whim with no sense of direction. I needed something to do since COVID cancelled all of my plans for the rest of the year. As much as I would love to, I knew just eating and sleeping was not the way to go.

This blog is not tailored to a specific topic or aesthetic. It is me “directionless blogging” my shenanigans. The name Savir is a representation of me and I’m looking forward to sharing some of the things that bring me joy. I love sleeping, traveling, photography, spending time with my family, and of course my dog. 

I hope that you join me on this new unknown adventure. I don’t know if anything will make sense but it’s going to be purely me.
