St.Ives Revitalizing Lotion and Soothing Lotion Review (VoxBox Unboxing & Review)

St.Ives Revitalizing Lotion and Soothing Lotion Review (VoxBox Unboxing & Review)

I received my first VoxBox complimentary via Influenster (if you are a beauty addict or just enjoy free things in general, you should sign up!! It’s amazing.) at the end of December 2017 after having a profile with Influenster for a good year, year and a half. A cool milestone to reach just in time for the new year if I do say so myself. *wink wink*  

Now if you follow me on Instagram, you might be saying “finallyyyyyy!” because I was so excited when I got the products, I posted about them as soon as I possibly could (that was back in December..). I mean, in a sense, you’re right. This review is sort of overdue from a chronological standpoint but if we look at it from a testing period standpoint… I’m actually right on time (;

I wanted to wait a little to write and Continue reading “St.Ives Revitalizing Lotion and Soothing Lotion Review (VoxBox Unboxing & Review)”

What Leandra Medine Has Taught Me About Embracing Individuality

What Leandra Medine Has Taught Me About Embracing Individuality

I have always been the kind of girl who couldn’t care less about name brands and labels. Style, to me, is more so an expression of identity. I’ve always felt like the clothes that someone wears shouldn’t leave people to wonder how they can look the exact same, but rather inspire people to enhance their individuality by wearing pieces that compliment them.

I would much rather have my clothes accentuate me than to verbally accentuate my clothes. Because who’s working for who here?.. Although there are many people who I feel are models of inspiration as far as style is concerned in this particular area, of all of them, Leandra Medine is queen.

The Easiest Way to Trivialize Wisdom

The Easiest Way to Trivialize Wisdom

As I am sure many of you have heard by now, on January 2nd, Logan Paul (a popular YouTuber for those who may not recognize the name) received widespread backlash about a video he posted in which he filmed a corpse hanging from a noose while exploring Japan’s Aokigahara. The Aokigahara is referred to as the “Sea of Trees” and it’s more popularized nickname, Suicide Forest, since it is the second most popular place in the world for one to commit suicide inContinue reading “The Easiest Way to Trivialize Wisdom”

4 Simple Ways to Declutter Your Life

4 Simple Ways to Declutter Your Life

Seeing as how we are nearing the end of the first month of the new year, I’ve been thinking a lot about keeping up the positive “new me” momentum. It’s so much easier to maintain that positive mentality during the last few weeks of December and the first few weeks of January but I think once we’re all settled into the new year, that drive and motivation once dedicated to adopting the new ___(fill in the blank)___ declines. In order to counteract this, I try to focus on a new practice every month. Continue reading “4 Simple Ways to Declutter Your Life”

Drugstore Gems: E.L.F HD Lifting Concealers

Drugstore Gems: E.L.F HD Lifting Concealers

I found my hunt for a decent drugstore concealer a bit of a tricky one, especially with the various recommendations from beauty bloggers and vloggers. In my personal search, my immediate go-to products to test were Maybelline’s FitMe Concealer and Instant Age Rewind Concealer seeing as how both have been claimed as favorites by many.

2018 Goals & Intentions 

2018 Goals & Intentions 

If you set a goal for 2018, and you’ve already broken it within the first week p l e a s e don’t trash that goal. I already see the “Welp! I can always try for 2019!” attitude spreading around like a wildfire and it’s just sad. Unfortunately, we aren’t guaranteed “next year” and too often we take the year we are given for granted. Who said that a new year can only begin on January 1st? The year is 365 days long… it’s a cycle. Once those 365 days are up, it’s a new year. Who said you can’t pick one of those days to start your own 365 day cycle?

Now, why am I saying this?  Continue reading “2018 Goals & Intentions “

The Real Reason Why Vision Boards Work (& How to Make Your Own)

The Real Reason Why Vision Boards Work (& How to Make Your Own)

Most people advocate vision boards because of something called the “Law of attraction”. I personally am not a big fan of this law for two reasons: The first being that God’s will is inevitable even in spite of my own (1 Thessalonians 5:18 & Jeremiah 29:11). The second reason is that all good things come from God (James 1:17). I personally cannot accredit the universe for all the great things Jesus does and is doing not just in my life but in the lives of others!

WITH THAT BEING SAID…
