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”
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.

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…
If you are following me on Instagram, you might have seen my last instagram story was essentially a farewell to social media. I am a huge advocate of taking frequent social media breaks just to keep its usage at a healthy level and I took a total of 0 breaks in 2017. That is… until I decided to take the month of December off of every kind of social media platform. Including the blog.
I needed a bit of mental solitude to place all of my focus on being present and in the moment, as I feel I often need in order to maintain a certain level of self-care (and sometimes sanity ha ha). Don’t we all though?
As all of my social media breaks have proven to be, the break was much-needed and much enjoyed! Upon re-entering the social media/blogging realm (world… cyberspace?..), I thought I would bring a little snapshot of my camera roll just to show you guys where I’ve been and what this December contained for me!
Have a peak!(:
I have no shame in saving a buck or two on products that are just as superb as (and sometimes even better than) their high-end competitors! I wanted to start a new series on the blog in honor of that and share with you guys the drugstore products whose value I feel totally surpasses the monetary one given them.
I figured starting off with my favorite two shades of Milani Baked Blushes would be a great way to kick off the series! I mean, really, just look at how gorgeous these are… Continue reading “Drugstore Gems: Milani Baked Blushes”
I am in love with the sprinkles of pink I’ve seen in fall fashion lately! I am not obsessed with the color, but I do like to play around with it from time to time. When it comes to casual shoes, I rarely experiment with colors that aren’t neutral however, I have been feeling the need to liberate myself from that box this fall with these adorable pink shoes from Shoetopia!
I don’t know about you, but I’m in a little bit of disbelief that 2018 is merely 8 weeks away. They say time flies when you’re having fun but the fact that the end of the year is practically here has me feeling like I’ve overslept one too many days since January.
Obviously, we still have two major holidays to prepare for. I am the last person to add any major to-do’s to my list during the holiday season, so believe me when I say I am not advocating anything elaborate or ultra time-consuming. However, waiting until the very last week of 2017 to decide what you want to get out of an ENTIRE YEAR doesn’t seem to leave a lot of room for contemplation.
