OTD #301 Thankful for Lots: Puppy Love!

Happy Monday, everyone! Guess what?! It’s the beginning week of Thanksgiving!! I don’t know about you, but a holiday where it’s totally fine to eat whatever and however much you want is a holiday I’ll take any day! Okay, I’ll stop with the exclamation marks, hehe 🙂

Last year I did a month long post of telling you what I’m thankful for, so this year I decided to dedicate this week to what I’m thankful for this year. So, let’s stop jabbering and get into it!

The first thing I’m thankful for is having Tiberius in my life. If you don’t know, at the beginning of August Zach and I got a 4 month old pomsky. It’s only been about 4 months since having him but it’s been so amazing. Ever since we had that big connection after having him for a month or so, I’ve come to love him so much that it would hurt if anything ever happened to him. He’s the light of my life and a great first puppy.

If you want to see what he looks like, check out my instagram, @ChloeAkemi to see tons of pictures! He’s the sweetest and can’t wait for all of our adventures together.

BTW, he gives hugs now and it just melts my heart!!

Tell me the first thing you’re thankful for this year down below in the comments section!

Much love,

Chloe ❤


OTD# 294 Etsy shop advice, please!

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope the holiday weekend was nice and you’re having an even better Monday. Mine started off cleaning and then taking a nap because who does work stuff at 5:30 in the morning?

Anywho, today I wanted some advice. In the past few months I’ve been introduced to the Etsy shop seller world and boy is it hard… I’ve been trying my best to bring my shop items to everyone’s attention but no one is really digging it. So, does anyone have any advice as to how I can tend to people’s likes and dislikes of product advertisement. Wow, that was a mouthful. I hope you kind of get what I mean. I really am running out of ideas. This afternoon I’ll be taking more pictures and uploading them to my shop instagram. To be honest, that’s my second favorite part of this, hehe! I love showing what I have for everyone in fun and different ways 🙂

Anyways, if you have any advice, please leave it in the comment section down below!

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #280 What are you being for Halloween this year??

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope Halloween weekend was fun and exciting! Mine was a little boring on the side of Halloween related things but that’s because of poor planning. I actually had some things in mind for this past weekend but sometimes things just don’t work out and that’s totally fine 🙂 One of those did include going to a haunted forest so, I didn’t luck out too much. Nonetheless, it was still fun to see everyone’s halloween costumes and I can’t wait for tomorrow to see EVERYONE’S!! I love dressing up and seeing others dress up as well, so this’ll be lots of fun! Sadly, where I live I won’t be able to hand out candy, as Trunk-or-Treat is getting quite popular nowadays. But that won’t stop me from eating my own candy and sweet treats 🙂

Have you decided what you’re going to be for halloween yet? I mean, it’s tomorrow, so you should have, right? No worries, last minute costume planning is always a must when you want to look your best. Me on the other hand, I haven’t decided what yet. I have a few to pick from and I just want to be all of them, haha! But once tomorrow comes, I’m sure I’ll know the minute I wake up.

Tell me in the comment section what you’re going to be or if you’re not, what your dream costume would be! I’d love to hear about it!

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #266 Do you believe in creatures of the night?

Have you ever thought about the creatures of the night that lurk around? I’m talking about the ones who you hear in stories as a child. For instance, ghosts. Were you ever afraid of them? I never thought about ghosts until I saw Paranormal Activity. Since then I’ve always thought about them. I try not to be scared of the thought of a spirit walking around but sometimes it can be if you dwell on it too much. Other than that, I don’t think I’m really afraid of anything else. What about you? Is it vampires that freak you out or that there could be a serial killer roaming around your neck of the woods?

Comment your thoughts down below, I’d love to hear about them!

Like I said this past weekend, I’m going to some more posts like this, obviously this one was a little kidish but don’t worry. If you’re looking for a scare, stay tuned…

Also, if you’re looking forward to another Writing Advice, there won’t be one today. It seems I must’ve written one when I shouldn’t and I only have two left. Thus the next one will be in November 🙂

Much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #259 Happy Columbus Day!

Happy Columbus Day, everyone!

I know this holiday isn’t as appreciated as most others, so as always, I have a link at the end of this post to study you up on the subject a little 🙂

Remember to always be thankful for everything you have, even if it’s little. It all counts in the good places and you’ll end up happier every single time!

As always, much love,

Chloe ❤


OTD #252 Music is our peace

Today I’d like to start this post off by saying that I’m sorry for anyone affected by the Las Vegas shooting and hope nothing but the best for you with what life has instore for you next. We are with you all ❤

Since today hasn’t been a happy day, I wanted to share a playlist with you all that I listen to when I’m not feeling the best. We all have those days and some more frequent than others.

Million Years Ago – Adele

All I Ask – Adele

Can’t Let Go – Adele

Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel) – Billy Joel

The Prayer – Evynne Hollens and Peter Hollens

The Summer Knows – Jackie Evancho feat. Chris Botti

Se – Jackie Evancho feat 2Cellos

God Only Knows – Michael Buble

Marry Me – Train

Someone’s Waiting For You – Shelby Flint

How Does a Moment Last Forever (Music Box) – Kevin Kline

You’ll Be In My Heart – Phil Collins and Glenn Close

Tomorrow Will Be Kinder – The Secret Sisters

City of Stars – Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone

Tenerife Sea – Ed Sheeran

Try a Little Tenderness – Michael Buble

Now, these songs may not have the same meaning to me as the writers had but they calm me and bring clarity to my mind. Not every song you listen to has to mean something specific, although some will.

Have an amazing rest of your day!

As always, much love,

Chloe ❤

OTD #245 Motivation Monday: Body Confidence

Let’s have this day be Motivation Monday. First I’ll tell you all the good motivation and then you have to go on and apply it to yourself, sound like a deal? Let’s get started!

It’s come to almost everyone’s attention that there are chunky people out there and it’s okay to be one of them. And I think it’s great that the industries are finally starting to realize that there are going to be bigger people. I personally think it’s nice because it’s helping those companies as well and it overall makes customers happier to shop there. Being inclusive has been one of the best decisions someone can make.

Though there has been controversy because something similar has happened in the past, and that’s anorexia. Now, these two are completely different yet they’re the same. They’re different in how they affect your body but the same because it’s not healthy whatsoever. I don’t care what you want to say, it’s cold hard facts that being underweight and being overweight are BOTH not healthy for anyone.

Let’s get into what’s extreme now. Of course if it’s affecting you in anyway, you’re probably in need of some help to fix it, but not all are terrible. Say your weight is 30 pounds over. You don’t need to worry but you should watch what you’re eating and get some more outside time. This goes for the other way around. Now, I’m in no means trained in this but for someone who’s overweight, I know what it feels like. As for underweight, I can’t say the same but it’s probably around the same area just a different type. I won’t go too much more into this but overall, if you’re under or over the average weight your body should be at, you should definitely try to work at it and that’s that. (This is all going based over the average weight your body should be at, whether that’s the lowest or highest.)

Getting to love and feel comfortable in your body is what I really wanted to get into today, so let’s do it 🙂

For being someone who has basically been overweight my whole life, I know how hard it is to lose weight when you aren’t always strict. It’s so hard but if you really put your mind to your true goal, you can basically do anything. But during that process you still have to feel comfortable in that temple of yours. Once again, I know it’s really hard and heck, I’m still trying to figure it all out, but trying is better than nothing. Something that could help is finding what you’re most comfortable with and finding out why. Why does it make you want to not show it or even look at it in your own personal time? Find the reason and dismiss it. Something that I’ve always been insecure about is my big ol’ belly. Lie most people, I found ways to get over it. The first was making myself comfortable when wearing clothes and without. We can all have different opinions about what’s being confident, so here’s mine: if you feel confident in a crop top and leggings, go for it. It’s just not my cup of tea when I know others can see the line of my stomach. But as long as you’re comfortable, be you and do it! Just don’t go walking around all commando, unless it’s allowed, haha!

I hope this little speal came across helpful and maybe you can start this 🙂 I know confidence in your body is so hard to gain, but go little by little. Don’t force yourself to do all these things at once. Ease your way in and once that’s done, being comfortable should be waiting for you around the corner.

As always, much love,

Chloe ❤

On The Daily #196

Hey, friends, I hope your weekend was nice and your Monday is going well! If any of you follow me specifically when I post, you’d know that posting this in the afternoon is not my usual thing. I figured I would try something different in my posting schedule and the afternoons seemed the best.

The reason for the change is because I haven’t been feeling quite motivated in the afternoon, which lead me to thinking, why is that? I’m most motivated in the mornings for a number of things, including it’s a new day, it’s the morning, I genuinely feel the most motivated at this time of day, and I get to write for all of you! As you can see, There are a handful of things that make me motivated in the mornings, so you can see why I wouldn’t be in the afternoons. I also really like to get as many things done as needed in the mornings so I can save some time for fun later.

Today is actually going pretty well with this new schedule, which I thought would be extremely hard, considering all of the things I just mentioned.

Nonetheless, I’ll leave it at here for this post and check back in next Monday! So, do you like me posting in the afternoon? Or do you like the morning posts better?

Much love, Chloe ❤

The dreaded Monday is here once again… But fear not, for you can change your attitude about Mondays all in one, just like that!

It’s all about the mind when it comes to not liking things. For example, Mondays. Basically no one likes them because everyone always has to go back to their normal everyday life. It’s either work, school, or taking care of your family and household chores that always need to be done. But think of it like this, if you don’t like what you’re doing, change something about it. If work is making your days long, wake up and think about how you can make the day better, as for any of these too. For myself, I try to think of ways to write because writing is my job and my passion and I don’t want those two to die out anytime soon. After you’re done with that, have a food or drink that would make your mind and body feel better. As for me, I’m going on this diet where anything but water is off limits for an extended amount of time. So water is always good too! It’s summer as well, so if you start this now, it’ll be easier when it comes to later in the year.

That’s about it that I have for you. Just try to make yourself happy before whatever it is you have to do. Keep on trying if one thing or the next doesn’t work 🙂

Much love, Chloe ❤

Hi everyone, I hope your weekend was great and you all had fun 🙂 I had a fun weekend of the beach the the pool, which meant lots of sun time. And I love to get dark for the summer too! But the process to get there can be a little hard, considering that I might have to get burnt here and there to get the end results. The first time this year my face got burnt pretty good but this time it doesn’t hurt too much. So hopefully it doesn’t peel away like last time because that wasn’t a pretty sight, haha!

This week, I don’t have any plans, so it might be a what’s ever on my mind kind of week of posts. But I hope you enjoy nonetheless.

Have an amazing start to your week!

As always, much love ❤
