Favorite YASS Ma’am/Inspiring Twitter Quotes [Part 1]

Hi fellow readers! I’m Shabria and welcome to my blog *virtual hugs*

So, when I’m not coming up with a new blog post or writing one. I’m on twitter, tweeting or retweeting, which I’m sort of active on besides Instagram or Youtube. So, majority of my twitter timeline, it’s tweets that I can relate and that gives me that ‘yass ma’am’ moment. And I want to share them with you and I will definitely leave their twitter handles, so you can follow them if you want.

“Everything that glitters ain’t gold. Even if it sounds like a great opportunity and attracts you from how it looks on the outside –it doesn’t always mean it’ll be a great fit for you. Don’t get caught up on big company names, brands, etc and trust your own judgement.”  – @ashleyncraddock

“Don’t let your dreams paralyze you because you think they’re too big. Dream big, create a plan, and go after your goals, darling.” – @kelleygreen_

My Wanderlust List (Caribbean Islands)

“Wanderlust (n) : A strong desire or urge to wander or travel and explore the world.”

Hey my lovely readers. Either if you’re new or old, I’m Shabria and this is my blog *virtual hugs*.

So, there’s a few things that I would like to do and that’s traveling solo to islands that I adore from textbooks. The reason why I want to travel solo instead with my family, because we have different traveling interests; I want to travel within the Caribbean islands and they want to travel within the U.S., which isn’t a bad thing, it’s just want to expand my travel horizons and experience different cultures. So, I would to love to share my wanderlust travel bucket list with you guys and hopefully give you some travel ideas as well.

Caribbean Islands I Want To Travel To:


Cayman Islands

Turks and Caicos Islands
