Life Lately Vol. 38

Happy Friday! I'm long overdue for a Link Love post, but so much has happened in the past few weeks that I decided to skip the Link Love post and just share a little life update. Enjoy!

I got my braces off!! If you've been following me for a while, you might remember the days before I had my braces and I had the worst gaps of missing teeth in my mouth, but those days are long gone. I do have an Invisalign retainer, now, which is a pain, but I don't miss braces at all! The only bad part is that my teeth are really sore from adjusting to the retainer, so I haven't been able to eat any solid food. All I've had in the past 24 hours is three different kinds of ice cream, a peach, a small bowl of rice, and a coffee, which now that I'm thinking about it, doesn't sound that bad. Who doesn't love an excuse to eat ice cream?

I'm going to do a YouTube Q&A all about my braces experience (because it's been a pretty unique one) so if you have any questions, leave a comment below or shoot me a DM on Instagram.

I also finally pulled the trigger and bought Aspyn Ovard presets (as seen in the pictures above)! I had been wanting them forever, and after I asked my friends and pretty much every single one of them thought I should buy them, I pulled the trigger. Let me just say, they are so amazing. Pricey? Yes. But amazing? Ohhh yes.

I'm sure you've already seen this by now... but I went to Galveston! It was such a fun vacation, and I would do just about anything to be back there right now! Make sure you check out the Galveston travel guide I posted earlier this week - full of so many fun things to do!

After Galveston, we headed down to Houston to celebrate my grandpa's 80th birthday and see my grandparents' new house. It was such a fun couple of days. Sadly, I didn't get any pictures with them, but I did snap this one of my grandpa's birthday cake. It's called a Brown Mountain cake, and it's literally one of the best cakes I've ever had. (of course, pretty much any cake my grandma makes ranks really high on my list.)

Oh, and I tried the Costco acai bowl. I've become obsessed with acai bowls lately, and when Costco came out with one, I knew I had to try it. It's so good, and even if you don't like acai bowls, you will like this one. It tastes more like a sorbet but is amazing!

If you didn't know, I am a huge soccer fan, so I've been watching the World Cup like crazy. My dad and I have gone out to lunch every day this week to watch the games. Since USA isn't in the tournament, he's pulling for Iceland and France, and I've got Spain and Mexico. If you're following along, I would love to hear who you're rooting for!

Have a great weekend!
