Spreading Love & New Camera

Spread love. Please. The world of evil is ridiculous lately. Every weekly b/vlog, I'm talking about horrible acts of lack of humanity that leaves people without family members, friends, and more. Just please, if there is anything you get from this, just spread love. Teach love.

This week I have my new camera! Although I do not use it much for blogging as it is pretty bulky, I am loving having it to take pictures for the blog posts.

My camera came in the mail right before I headed to National Harbor. Trying out my camera on the pups once we arrived, I captured some cute shots.

I love the detail that the camera captures and it also prevented the red eye that Coco normally has in her photos.

After walking around the mall, my parents and I decided to head down to the waterfront in National Harbor with the puppies to watch the sunset unfold.

I took this shot of the new statues and signs in this little city. Being right near Washington D.C., this is a cute, little, patriotic town.

The sunset was beautiful over the water. I took a few shots (under-exaggerating here) on my camera, testing multiple settings.

I also made my dad take a photo of me being all artsy with my camera so that I could post it on Instagram. I actually did take a photo of him as he took this one, but he would probably hate me if I shared it as I was lower on the rocks and it looked up at him. (He would probably call it unflattering.)

I also, as the sun slowly set, became invested in Pokémon Go. I caught quite a few Pokémon throughout the week.

And, if you couldn't tell, this was one of my first catches. I did not yet know about the camera in the corner and instead took screenshots.

My battery was at 29% because of this game. I love it, but it does drain battery power fairy quickly.

Sunday was a fairly uneventful day as we relaxed in the air conditioning before making our drive home. Coco was quite exhausted during the drive (probably due to the medicine we give her so she won't get sick).

I was personally just very happy that our drive home was much better than the drive down from the Week 9 vlog.

Again, I loved having my camera throughout the day and just messed around with it.

Monday brought in the work week... which also happened to be Brittany's birthday. I sent her package out a little late (sorry girl I stink) and ended up sending her a little box of Beauty and the Beast trinkets, including lithographs for pre-ordering the 25th anniversary vault release of the movie.

I also made this dorky video of our vlog clips to celebrate her. After all, I "ain't never had a friend like you."

While writing her card Monday evening, I tried out a new face mask from Lush called Rosy Cheeks. I absolutely loved it!

The face mask is described on the website as: "A simple blend of kaolin, calamine and Turkish rose oil to delicately calm the skin and restore balance. Whether you're feeling hot and bothered or just fancy showering your complexion with roses, cleansing calamine and kaolin will gently remove dirt while exquisite rose oil nourishes and tones your face. Calm, matte skin, here you come!"

This face mask was so relaxing and made my skin feel amazing afterwards.

(Just a note: if you look closely at the lid, there is an A. That is because this has to be refrigerated and I share a fridge with my whole family. I think it is funny that it is in the photo.)

Tuesday, I was off of my internship and had errands to run. I went to drop off Brittany's package and had a chiropractic appointment since I am still suffering with back pain as I attempt to fix my posture.

My Wednesday was quite busy as I had both my internship and my retail job. I was supposed to work from 4 p.m. until 8. However, with the store being busy lately and I helping in the stock room to re-organize an entire wall of jeans, up to the ceiling, I did not leave until 10:50 p.m. Needless to say I was pretty exhausted.

During my shift, I was told that I did not need to work Friday, as originally scheduled.

Thursday I had a pretty uneventful day until my chiropractic appointment. Following that, I headed to my retail job. However, upon arriving, I was told that they tried to call me and tell me that my shift was cut. (They think they called the wrong person as I never received a call.) I was pretty irked by this as I was looking forward to the first week that I had more than one shift. But I knew that the store is going through a transitional time so I said it was okay and left.

That night, the news was depressing. A truck had drove through a crowd in France, as the people had just finished watching fireworks celebrating Bastille Day. The act killed over 80 people.

I was devastated to hear of this news. I'm so tired of hearing people dying by senseless acts of another. I just ask that we spread love, not hate. Teach love, not hate. It's time to make sure those you encounter daily know that you appreciate them, even if it is the barista as you grab your coffee. Just be kind. Say thank you and please and wish a great day.

The world needs love, more than ever.

Friday I did not do much and therefore, did not vlog much. But I was still playing Pokémon Go and was quite tempted to go out at midnight to earn kilometers so I could hatch some eggs.

Never have I ever wanted to go walk and exercise at midnight... alone.

However, my neighborhood has no PokéStops, nor many Pokémon so I talked myself out of it.

Week 10 was, frankly, all over the place. But sometimes, so is life.

I ask you as this ends, however, to do the same I discussed in the beginning.

Spread love.

Hugs, kisses, and thanks for watching and reading!
