Random Thoughts Thursday!

random thoughts

So, I haven’t done a random thoughts post in a little bit and I figured it was time. Mainly because I have so many random thoughts on my mind lol.

To start, why in the world is it so difficult for me to eat healthy? I for some reason always default back to unhealthy food when I’m low on time at work or stressed out. Come on Chelsea, get it together.

Does anyone else hate going to a nail salon to have their nails done? I feel like I’m wasting so much time sitting there for some reason. Not relaxing at all! I find that doing my own nails every week is so much easier and less time consuming.

I’m pretty sure my cat knows it’s giving me attitude. Like straight up rude stares and walking away from me when I’m trying to love him. As Michelle Tanner said, HOW RUDE!

Why can’t working out just be done for me by someone else and I see the results on my body? lol I mean come on, we should have this technology by now.

I have a closet full of clothes and for some reason pull the exact same outfits EVERY week. Why am I like this? lol.

I wish I didn’t have to sleep so that I could get my daily massive to do list done every day.

Also, why does sleeping become so much harder as we get older. I wish I could sleep like I did when I was a kid. Those were the good times.

Does anyone else, replay their whole work day in their head while they’re sleep? 😑 So annoying.

Anyways, that’s it for today. Just some randomness on my mind, that’s now stuck in your mind lol.

Your welcome! 😝

Talk to you soon!

How to Make the Perfect Instagram Story Cover Photos

So, as I’m sure you all know, Instagram now has the option to add instagram stories to your highlight reel. These highlighted stories stay on your profile page so people can look through old stories you’ve highlighted. The best thing about this, is you can categorize your stories now into whatever you want, style, decor, beauty, etc. It’s perfect for people who love posting stories and for viewers who want to look through specific stories. I love the idea of posting in categories cause now whenever I’m like, “oh what should I wear today…?”, I’ll just flip through my style stories for some inspiration! It’s like clothes shopping through your own closet.

Side-bar: does anyone remember Cher’s closet from Clueless where she looked through everything in her computer to see what the outfit looked like on her before wearing it? Well that is my style insta stories for me!! I swear its a great little tool.

Anyways, back on track. So you can look through everyone else’s categories too to get some inspiration as well.

Now it’s not necessary to create your own cover photo for your highlighted stories (instagram will just mark your first pic as your automatic cover photo), but for me and my OCD-like tendencies I prefer everything look the same. So creating a cover photo is a MUST!

Random Thoughts

random

So I’ve been thinking of some sure random stuff and just wanted to share with you guys….

So for beginners, Does anyone else not use their dishwasher? I don’t know why, but I hate using dishwashers. I would rather hand wash all my dishes. And yes, I do hand wash everything!

How often is too often to go shopping? Cause I’m pretty sure I do that too much with shopping online. lol Amazon is a true problem. It’s just so convenient I can’t resist.

Does getting the silent treatment drive anyone else crazy? I can’t stand it when people give you the silent treatment. Like hello, I’m not a mind reader! Just tell me what’s wrong! 😝
