finding a great swimsuit can be hard, so I put together an extensive guide for you just in time for summer.
hello frens! today’s post is super exciting as it’s something I’ve been working on for many weeks. I’m going to be sharing a list of different brands and swimsuits for all different styles, coverage, and prices that are all super cute! I hope everyone can find at least one swimsuit from this list! I also tried to break up the text with lots of cute graphics and make this as simple as possible so it won’t take hours to read! let me know your fav swimsuit below 👇👇
hey frens! welcome back to christina and camera and the second installment of “glow up weekly”. I’m so excited to share this week’s challenge with you guys, it’s something simple but I think it will be quite helpful! 💛
today we’re going to be chatting about eating healthy which is something I think most of us (at least I do!) want to implement in our lives but aren’t exactly sure how.
I’m doing to talk about some myths about eating healthy, share some practical tips, and there will be a freebie at the end so you can plan out some healthy meals for yourself!
first off, I wanted to explain some myths about healthy eating that I’ve seen that have confused me. healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated or confusing, so I wanted to clear some things up 🙂
i only need to eat healthy if I want to lose weight – yeah no! the main reason to eat healthy and clean is to treat your body well, it does so much for us so we should at least put clean and good things into it! if you actually need to lose weight (talk to your doctor about it, I’m not a medical professional lol) than this can be something that could help BUT making good choices about what you eat is wayyy better for you than not eating/starving yourself. just a little reminder 💛😂
eating “healthy” means I don’t get to eat my favorite foods/it is limiting and restricting – also no! honestly you can eat whatever you want as long as you do it in moderation and it doesn’t make you feel gross/sick!
eating healthy is just a set of rules/diet plan – it’s not, actually! there’s no guidelines or rules, the main thing is just thinking about the things you eat. YOU get to make it whatever you want and feel is right for your body and situation. there are no rules or restrictions at all 🙂
next, I wanted to share some practical tips for eating healthier in your everyday life! there are lots, so feel free to share some of your own in the comments 💛
a lot of the time when I’m bored I want to snack even though I’m not hungry! drink some water and wait a few minutes before eating if you’re not sure you’re hungry, a lot of the time that is just all you needed.
drink more water. this is soo helpful and it fills you up so you won’t eat when you’re not actually hungry! if you struggle with drinking enough water here’s another blog post I wrote about that lol: how to drink more water (tips + reasons why) 🌿
lots of fresh fruits and veggies. in my opinion fresh fruits and veggies are soo good, if you don’t really like them try some new ones and you just may find something you really like. make sure you’re (especially with fruits) buying ones in the right season so they’re at their prime. this is such a healthy snack!
try to limit soda and sugar. this can be hard, but limiting your soda will make you feel so much better! limiting sugar is even harder, but fresh fruits and vegetables that only have natural sugars is a great substitute for sugary snacks.
try new recipes! pinterest is a great place to find lots of easy and healthy ideas, all it takes is a quick search. fill your meals with variety and you will enjoy them so much more in my opinion.
my pinterest board for food ^^^
now for the free printable! for this week i decided to create a meal planner for the week, it’s super simple and you can write down any meal ideas you have! I actually made two different ones, one has the actual day of the week on it so you can plan that way and the other one is just for ideas for different meals (breakfast, lunch, dinners, and snacks). I kept them with the same theme/design as last weeks to keep everything cohesive and fun 🙂 I hope you enjoy!
and of course I made them downloadable as pdfs too 😉
hey frens! welcome to christina and camera 💛 today i’m sharing some summer outfit inspo. if you like seeing cute pinteresty outfits then keep reading 😉
I love the look of flowy, light dresses paired with dainty jewelry in the summer like the ones above! dresses look great with sneakers (especially white ones) or wedges/sandals for a casual but still super cute look.
jeans are basically an essential year round, but I love the look of lighter wash in the summer! you can pair them with pretty much anything (ideas: tie a shirt for a new look, tuck in a white tee, roll up the sleeves of an oversized shirt) and they’ll look perfect.
shorts are obviously a summer essential! I love the look of overalls (or shortalls I guess?) wide/mom shorts, and paperbag shorts all of which are baggy which I personally think is way more comfy! shorts look cute with basically anything, but a solid color or striped shirt is great if you’re out of ideas.
skirts might not be your favorite, but I’ve recently fallen in love with them! they look great with a graphic tee (extra points if you tie it) or just a solid color if they have a pattern. solid color and spotted pattern skirts in all colors have been super trendy lately , and a jean skirt is also a great option!
did you enjoy seeing the cute outfits? do you like skirts? would anyone be interested in a cute swimsuit roundup (possibly with links so you can directly click over and buy it?) let me know, frens!!
Today I wanted to share a journal entry I recently made about intentionality, my summer goals, and screen time. My journal entries are basically blog posts (except more personal haha) and I try to make them something I would want to read again later. This doesn’t mean I try to make them perfect and they usually end up being really long lists hehe. Without further ado, my completely unedited and unfiltered (and rather long) journal entry. Let me know if this is something you’d like to see again in the future and I may share more!
Today I wanted to sit down and journal about my summer goals + how I want to be intentional this summer and screen time! It’s a lot but I think it all fits together.
My ultimate goal is: to be intentional with living out my purpose and to be loving and kind. To pursue my dreams, put God first in my life, act how I say I believe, be confident yet humble in Christ. For His love to abound through me and for me to grow in grace (philippians 1:9–11). And to have lots of fun and laughs along the way surrounded by those I love.
I wanted to separate this journal entry into sections, so:
My ultimate goal
What I can do to further that goal (specific goals/bucket list)
How i can be intentional this summer and what I mean by that
How technology/screens fits into that
Working towards that goal: specific goals + bucket list

All nighter hehe
Ways to be intentional this summer
Put down your phone!
Make a list of things to do when you get bored instead of refreshing instagram
Write down goals, feelings, and experiences.
Don’t just read/study, actually learn and apply! Seek to live out your devos and make them an important part of your day
Be positive and don’t get down!! Be patient and hold your tongue
Be healthy/glow up!!
workout/eat healthy(ier)/drink more water/skincare
This is something I have been thinking a lot about lately and really want to be intentional with my screen time. Some ways i have thought of to get off my phone/be intentional:
Have a rest day: my ultimate goal is for sundays to be zero screen usage. There is nothing you are missing out on AT ALL!! I may just power off for the whole day, we will see.
Checklist before screens: my current checklist (may change) – morning routine, clean room, earn $2, pick up bathroom, start laundry, devotions, physical activity/workout, read a book, be helpful/encouraging
Be intentional about what you do: even after you complete your checklist, be intentional! Goal: two hours per day at the most (this includes social media and blogging)
When calls the heart (I’ve only watched a bit and don’t have netflix, but I may get it just for this!) or bringing up bates
Having a goal/purpose before you turn it on
Checking social media sometimes
Reading an ebook
Iffy things (put it down and do something else, come back later if you really want to)
Checking social media all. The. time.
Scrolling for no reason/with no purpose
Being on screens past 10:30 (go to bed, girl!)
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my journal! If you’d like to read more of this type of post, let me know and I may make it a series 💛
do you have summer goals or a bucket list? any thoughts about intentionality and screen time? do you keep a journal? is it basically just lists like mine? #typeA
happy monday, guys!! I hope you’re having a lovely day. me – I can’t wait for spring break! I only have to push through this week (though it does include a math test, presentation in front of the class, history paper, and more) and then I get a week off 😊
these posts are actually some of my favorites to post and engage with on other people’s blogs and the questions are always really fun to answer so I’m really excited for this one.
🌻 hey guys! can you believe that it is almost spring? my spring break is coming up in about two weeks and I can’t believe it. I’ll probably be sharing some spring outfit ideas soon so look out for that ❤ christina
today I’m going to be sharing some spring wallpapers for your phone… I don’t know about you but I change my wallpaper every couple of days – there are so many cute ideas! If you’re wondering I find most of my wallpapers on pinterest, so these aren’t owned/made by me.
hey friends! I know this post sounds *so weird* but there are some really cute water bottle out there! hope you enjoy ❤
Okayyy you might be like “water bottles? christina do you literally have NO post ideas left?” BUT water bottles can actually be really cute and having a cute one is super good for drinking extra water 🙂
