Updates and Airbnb?

Hey everyone! It’s been awhile since I made an update post. I hope your finals and assignments went well for those of you that had them just like me. I just finished my exams yesterday (yay!).

Time is flying and there is only 4 more months until my first ever meeting with my boyfriend, Cruz! It’s making me a little nervous and anxious, because I haven’t made any solid plans for when he comes here such as what we are going to do, where we are going to stay etc. The fact that we are tight on money and I am a broke as heck student drowning in student loans is also stressing me out πŸ˜‚

With that said, I’ve been looking for some ways to save as much money as I can on hotel costs on his visit here, so we can have money to do other fun things. He is staying here for a week and hotel costs are pretty high, so I’ve been looking at using AirbnbΒ as an alternative. For those of you that don’t know what Airbnb is, it is a website where people can list and rent out their unused spaces.

The people on Airbnb are renting out their spaces forΒ much more cheaper than a hotel, so I have already been looking at some of the rooms listed. However, I am a little nervous in using this site because I’ve heard some horror stories!Β I have just been warned to make sure to read the reviews properly and make sure to contact the person listing out the space before renting it out.

If any of you have any experience using Airbnb or tips and advice on it, IΒ would love to hear aboutΒ it!

Despite all the anxiety and stress about our firstΒ meeting, I am utterly excited and happy. He is in the process of getting his passport right now! πŸ˜€

  1. I’ve used airbnb once when I went to NYC with my bf and his brother. It was my first time and it was a wonderful experience. We got a whole apartment to ourselves in the heart of Harlem with the subway around the corner. I’ll let you more of my experience in a bit, just got home and I am HUNGRY~~

  2. I’ve used AIRBnB going to cali this past summer. It’s reliable but def look into the reviews and the surrounding areas. It’s cheaper and homey than getting a hotel. I know a lot of people have used it as well. Do your research and you’ll be okay, promise! When I stayed in Long Beach it was a walk to the beach itself so It was really nice to just be able to go out there and relax when I have nothing else to do for the day. It was super cheap too! i think it was less than $90 CND a night… and my own bathroom. I’m looking into renting out a small condo when I go back to Cali ( this time closer to disneyland ) for my boyfriend’s birthday in March– let me know if youre struggling or worried!!

    PS. I just noticed that your LDRBF is Korean/Black… so is mine! LOL But Mine’s in Cali and I’m in Edmonton/Vancouver

    πŸ™‚ fyi I nominated you for a Liebster award — but you’ve probably already been nominated but I thought I’d let you know hahaha

      1. thanks for the IG follow as well! so many cute pictures of you two! makes me happy to see other couples who are also in a LDR making things work ❀ random question for you, couldnt help but notice your blog layout, was it hard to customize the dropdown menus etc? Im still trying to get a hold of wordpress itself and learning how to do wordpress.org at the same time, lol my mind is going to blow up!


      2. Aw no problem! You are so pretty β™₯

        Also, omg I had so much trouble when I first started with WordPress as well (I took a short online course on it because I was just so frustrated and clueless πŸ˜‚). For the drop down menus just click My Site when you’re on wordpress.com and on the side bar click on Menus. There you can add in sub-menus really easily and move them around! Let me know if you need any other help with WordPress and I’ll try to help 😊

      3. Aweee thank you 😳😳😳 you’re so adorable. I figured out those menu things I did NOT think I could physically move them around to make them sub categories lol I was like wtf… It’s that easy?! Lol. Thanks for the tips tho. I think I’m slowly starting to get the hang of it. Gonna activate my domain soon and make it official. Hopefully I can easily migrate all my followers to the .com with ease πŸ˜…
