life through an iphone {one last look}

with having my phone for over three years, the poor thing was just breaking down
well then I dropped it last week so that could be the reason why its officially broken
so I went through a couple days with the phone shutting off then magically turning back on
though yesterday it took its last time before I had to say goodbye
{it was more like a happy dance bye}
an upgrade on my family's account wasn't for another month so I thought I would be phone less for a month, but then my dad had to switch us on a new plan, which also came with a new upgrade!!! 
this happening in one day was quite funny, telling my friends that I wont have a phone for a month and I was going to love it being not antisocial and attached to a materialistic device
but that only lasted a couple hours
and now I have a new phone and the one thing I'm most excited about is that well first I have sound on my phone since the other one didn't have a working sound button and the camera, the camera, the camera 
so here is that last post with the old phone and here's to many new posts to come with the new one!

last picture, looking about poor thing was really shattered

all moved in {wall decor}

so for my faithful followers here on simplyjay you may have known that I moved into a new house about a month ago
with the stress of school, activities and basically life I put off finishing my room
I mean the bed, desk and dresser was all done with the closet being perfectly organized
BUT
I had things to hang up, a box to unpack and some more things to organize
and today was the day I finally finished and let me tell you, it no nice and relaxing to not have that job in the back of my mind



lovely adventures around town


flowers, succulents, and cute little cafes, of the loveliness

Spinach Berry Smoothie

a perfect pick me up smoothie is the best way to start off the day
here is my spinach berry smoothie jam packed with sweet berry's and lots of spinach
I also added a touch of blue agave for some extra sweetness

~3 cups of spinach (you can always add in more veggies like carrots)
~ small hand full of frozen strawberries, blue berries and blackberries
~few slices of frozen pineapple
~some splashes of cranberry juice (you can use any liquid from almond milk to apple juice, I just enjoy the strong flavor of cranberry juice)
and that's all!

for some extra nutrients to the smoothie adding in protein powder would always be delightful

Jesus, friends and the sea, bring pure Joy



















Weekend adventures to San Clemente are always the best. Franny, Nat, Olivia and I went down to San Clemente to walk around the pier and purchase sweet treats at the candy store. We may or may not have gotten a little rowdy in the candy store, but it has to be the cashiers fault for giving us so much free salt water taffy, it was a moment of much sugar highness.
Then we wondered down to the pier. Counting that its spring break and the weather is winter weather, we still went to the beach, freezing our bums off. BUT it was so glorious, God just painted the sky so gorgeous we couldn't help but stay awhile.

I mean like come on how can you not see Jesus in this beauty
This is all of Him, and all glory goes to Him

spring :: i love you

the festive person in me loves to embrace every Holiday and season
though there is something about Spring that just makes me jump with joy
I love this time
Spring has been my favorite season since I was little
Jesus Resurrection, the colors, the weather, the fashion, the brightness, the Cadbury mini chocolate eggs, all of it 

so some 10 new things buzzing around:
-school is taking up most of my time. taking up my sleep hours, eating hours and workout hours. oh did I mention my social media hours as well?

-im in a pickle of wanting to dye my hair lighter, I have been wanting to for a while but a nervous wreck thinking it will turn out orange 

-the job search is ON for summer, prays please

-with moving in to the new casa I haven't touched my room in the means of decor. serious slacking in that department I still have some boxes sitting around

-the weather has been so amazing over here, so thankful to bring out the shorts and tanks

-my phone broke, in the snow.... now the sound and call doesn't work too well, sorry mom

-Mitch and I have been playing tennis like everyday, my new favorite hobby if I must say

-favorite song at the moment is Oceans by Hillsong United. favorite colors are baby blue (shocker) and yellow. favorite food at the moment is my spinach salad with apples, golden raisins and nuts yum. 

-my half birthday was on the 8th, only 6 short months till my 21st! so weird, feels way to old. been thinking of what my birthday meal will be... vine with a chicken salad, tacos and a pina colada or a beer with a hamburger? cant believe that I will be old enough to enjoy a meal like that

-I cant go without talking about the Bachelor, finally the season is over. im sorry but he was not my cup of tea. "iz ok" "i like you a lot ;)' barf.
