Makeup Products to Keep in Your Purse This Summer

Makeup Products to Keep in Your Purse This Summer

Whether you are traveling cross-country or simply going about your daily commute, it’s always a good idea to have a few makeup products on hand. You never know when you might need to touch-up your makeup while out and about. Preparation is key and it is unfailingly better to be safe than sorry.

Now that we are approaching summer, I thought it’d be the perfect time to talk about updating the ordinary makeup products we keep handy in our purses. Your skin will react differently to the heat and sun exposure in the summer than it would in the spring or fall. Staying in tune with your body and the way it responds to the changes in the weather will help you to maintain the utmost of self-care. Here are a few makeup products to ensure you tote around with you this summer:

Motivational Playlists Perfect for Mundane Days

Motivational Playlists Perfect for Mundane Days

I believe music has a way of influencing people so markedly, that our mood tends to mirror the tone of what we listen to the most. Everything from the tempo, to the notes, to the way the singer is belting out the words translates a certain energy and that energy is capable of having an irresistable impact on us. On me especially.

If I feel that the day is slow and I’m struggling to stay awake, the only solution (other than a big cup of coffee) that I know will have an immediate impact on me is blaring some feel-good, life-giving music. Somedays it helps to have a coffee in hand with the music blaring.

Considering that we are on the final installment of the Motivational Munday’s series, I wanted to end on a note (no pun intended (; )that would really resonate and to me, there is nothing that resonates with people more than good music. Below I’ve listed a few motivating playlists to enjoy when you need to put a little more pep in your step. Continue reading “Motivational Playlists Perfect for Mundane Days”

Motivational Social Media Accounts Perfect for Mundane Days

Social media has an undeniably large impact on our world today. It has changed the way that we communicate and keep up with one another in both beneficial and not-so-beneficial ways. When we scroll through our social media feeds, we are consuming potential future thoughts. It is for this reason that it is really important to carefully govern how we use it.  Continue reading “Motivational Social Media Accounts Perfect for Mundane Days”

Kush Mascara by Milk Makeup Review

Kush Mascara by Milk Makeup Review

*DISCLAIMER: I received this product complimentary via Influenster

It is one of the most talked about beauty products on the market right now. Kush Mascara is raising eyebrows due to its usage of a very interesting ingredient: Weed. I have to applaud the marketing team behind Kush Mascara for their brilliant usage of typical references to weed in the context of a mascara (i.e. “One hit for high volume” and it’s release on 4/20). It certainly ignited my curiosity about the product and just how closely it would measure up to its claims of bringing on the volume.

I was not apart of the lucky few who actually received their Kush VoxBox on 4/20 but it did not take away my excitement upon receiving it. Before I dive into the review and talk about my experience thus far, I’d like to answer two dominating questions you may or may not have thought of by now:  Continue reading “Kush Mascara by Milk Makeup Review”

Motivational YouTube Channels Perfect for Mundane Days

Motivational YouTube Channels Perfect for Mundane Days

Being homeschooled throughout high school, I learned that sometimes the environment you work in can have an effect on how efficiently you operate. There were days when I woke up with this super productive, kick-butt attitude and the minute I started doing any load of work, boom. Energy gone. Just a few hours into the day and I’d be dragging my feet through the hours ahead of me.

If you work at home, you know the feeling. When you have complete control of your time and your workload, but no one around you, it’s easy to lose momentum. I started to turn to YouTube for “Work with Me” video’s to have a little motivation as I worked through my assignments and when I did, I ended up discovering channels that offered really neat, uplifting lifestyle videos: Continue reading “Motivational YouTube Channels Perfect for Mundane Days”

April Favorite’s Playlist

April Favorite’s Playlist

If you took a look at my Spotify, you’d see a billion different playlists. I probably make about three every month and they are the most random accumulation of songs. One day I’ll hear a really pretty wedding-worthy love song and that’ll inspire me to make a playlist of really pretty wedding-worthy songs. Then months go by and I still haven’t added to the playlist because how rarely do wedding-worthy songs actually come out?? Exactly. In the midst of the waiting, I’ll create other playlists that I add to more frequently. Each with its own general vibe.

As I was on the road to Dallas, I was flipping through radio stations (which I rarely listen to anymore) and stumbled on a few songs that I actually really like! Hence I just decided to place everything I heard that I liked in one “on the road” playlist: Continue reading “April Favorite’s Playlist”

Motivational Podcasts Perfect for Mundane Days

Motivational Podcasts Perfect for Mundane Days

Do you ever feel like you could use a motivational push throughout the week? Like somewhere between Monday and Friday you lose zeal or drive in your routine? Me too. It’s why I find myself needing a bit of a kick-in-the-butt sometimes.

There are so many cool ways available now-a-days to acquire that life-giving, energy-pumping, motivation when you need it, so I wanted to share the avenues I use with you guys! While originally, I was going to just make it a single post, I thought I’d hold a motivational series on the blog that would take four Mondays (this being the first) to complete.

I think the internet is an awesome gift when you really know how to use it to benefit you. Every Monday, for the next three Monday’s, I want to share with you guys my favorite motivational media outlets. This week, I want to cover podcasts. Next week it’ll be YouTube channels, the following week social media accounts, and the week after that it’ll be playlists (’cause music is a pretty influential part of life, right?).

I’m super excited to share them with you guys! At the end of every post, I’m going to ask that you guys contribute to the series by sharing your favorite motivational __(insert media outlet here)_’s as well! I’m always up for listening/watching motivational things and you never know who else you could be helping with your suggestion.

Today, being day one of the series, I wanted to cover motivational podcasts. Continue reading “Motivational Podcasts Perfect for Mundane Days”
