my 2020 summer outfits no one saw

Hello friends ❤

I think I can speak for everyone when I say it’s been a rough last couple of months. It’s been very trying – and really disappointing at times.

As a little last hurrah of my 2020 summer, I wanted to share some of the outfits I would’ve worn out in public that I love if I would’ve been able to leave the house.

I’ll let you know the brand (and exact style if I remember) of each of these pieces!

…school started + my first portrait painting

Hello ❤

I am stressed. I’ve had the entirety of 5 months to prepare for my senior year and yet I feel more unprepared than ever. College applications are looming, scholarship deadlines seem to be flying towards me, ACT and SAT prep is overwhelming and my schedule seems to be packed with important dates.

Today was the first day of school and to be honest with you, I’m already exhausted. I apologize in advance; my blogging schedule is going to switch up at least for August. Now that school has started, I’m going to shoot for one post every two weeks… but I hope I can get two in.

While I’ve had a tiring couple of weeks, I hit a really cool milestone! A couple weeks ago, I switched my Pinterest account to a business one and started uploading videos of my bullet journal. Yesterday I hit 100K monthly viewers! Thank you guys for everything.

I’ve been pretty overwhelmed but I wanted to post something to let you all know I’m not dead nor have I forgotten about you. Aaaand I recently painted my first ever portrait; here are some pictures!

august bullet journal setup✨⭐️

Hello💜

Everyone; school starts for me this month. How crazy is that? I feel like the summer was really long but also really short at the same time. Anyway, I can’t seem to figure out whether I’m upset that school is starting or happy… my emotions are everywhere:’D Either way, I’m excited to be finishing up high school and moving on.

The theme I used as inspiration for this month mostly came from Pinterest! I thought it was super adorable and fit into a classic sophisticated rose gold aesthetic🌷

let’s go!

some senior photography🌻


Hello💜

Yesterday was my three year anniversary on WordPress🤭 It’s crazy to think that just 3 years ago little 14 year old Sera started Avocado Thoughts. To be honest, the timing was impeccable. I was also getting my senior photos taken yesterday, thinking to myself how time flies. As a little tribute, I’m going to be sharing some of the behind the scenes pictures from the photo shoot:)

Time to get nostalgic –

minimalism, acne and totoro *life update*

Hello💜

There has been a lot going on in my life emotionally and mentally lately! I figured I’d try to get some stuff off my chest while also updating you all. It’s been a hard couple of months and I think it didn’t really hit me til this month. It’s all coming down, baby!

Anyway, get ready for me to unpack what’s been plaguing me lately. Maybe you’ll be able to relate☺️

17 Facts About Me

Yo, lovelies💜

lol, what do you think of this potential new intro instead of ‘hello, lovelies’? Is it too bro-like? Is it even possible to be too bro-like?

Anyways. *ahem* Got a little off track there.

It has officially been 3 years (wait a second. THREE years? I’ve had this blog for 3 YEARS? Okay, don’t get ahead of yourself, girl, because you can barely count 2019 because you literally dropped off the face of the planet for half the year. Wow, we are really distracted today) since I made a “facts about me” video. And oh boy, it’s amazing how one can change over the course of 3 years. I was such a naive little child back then. Oh, how things have changed (ok, things haven’t changed that much but still…).

A Reflection of 2018

Hello, darlings, and happy new year!!

I honestly can’t believe it is going to be 2019.

2019, people!! I am still stuck back in 2016… after 2016, I couldn’t wrap my head around 2017, 2018, or frankly 2019. I mean, we’re getting to the years people used to speculate about in movies! Like, everyone’s supposed to have elevating cars, and holographic memories/thoughts by now, right?

Haha, I guess I might be able to process that it’s 2019 a little more if I talk about what goals I accomplished and my resolutions from last year. Let’s check it out…
