In the night: gofundmeΒ 

Sorry guys but I just wanted to share I have a gofundme for a new computer and would really appreciate it if anyone could donate 

My computer has been messed up for these passed couple of weeks and it is too expensive to repair. I’ve been doing most of my work on my phone or in the library 

It has been a little inconvienent because I also work and have to do other activities so going to the library isn’t always the best 

Thank you anything will help or if you could share it along that would be awesome too!

IN THE AFTERNOON: Body DramaΒ 

This post will be short because I’m doing this on my phone while I am in class

My computer has been messed up for two weeks and I’m so sad because I am probably going to have to pay to get it fix

However, I am just going to stay as positive as possible because it is not the end of the world

ANYWAYS HELLO EVERYONE!

I’ve been pretty sick this week and probably will still be sick for the rest of this week but I’ll talk about body drama

And I call this body drama because I feel like sometimes we look at our body and hate it and that’s okay because you can always change it

Sometimes I look at the scale or the mirror and just feel like my body isn’t changing fast enough

BUT ITS OKAY!

Our bodies work at their own time and we have to be weary of how we judge it

Let’s be happy for the little things like the fact you ate some fruits today

Or the facts that you picked up the vegetables instead of some junk food

Or if you ate junk food that you only ate a one instead of a ton

Let’s be happy for the things that we have and that we love and be grateful

Let’s be okay with a stretchies(stretch marks and our like bumps and bruises)

I love my body and you should too! No one is perfect no one can change in one day

Photoshop is real but life will always be there

And it’ll get better your clothes will fit better

Your body will feel better I promise πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ŒπŸ½


Unrelated but I really really have been loving these toners !! They are also multi use you can use them as setting sprays or to resfresh your unrelated again and not sponsor but let’s glow!

IN THE MORNING: BODy POSiTive

HEllo all!! Happy Friday the 13th(spooky) and don’t step on a crack or you’ll break your mothers back πŸ™‚

Okay only one corny joke per post I promise or I’ll try

But on to the topic of today which is body positivity

GUYS/GALS being body positive is such a big thing because its your confidence and it makes you who you are

Now I’m here to you whether your skinny, curvy, corky, short tall etc we are all some fire people

We can do anything we want and shouldn’t let our bodies be in the way of what we want to do

I used to body shame myself all the time and its true you are your own worst enemy/criticizers

But when you get passed that and see how much your worth then nothing matters and you don’t need anyone

I feel like because of social media and all these false photos, captions and people

Teenagers early 20s and females in particular feel the pressure to please certain people

I know this cause I do feel this pressure myself but I don’t let that affect me or make me think any different

So what I don’t have a boyfriend or I am not super skinny or I don’t have the longest hair

I still think I am a 10 and even though that might seem selfish for some, for me this is how I see myself and how everyone should see themselves

I saw this post that speaks to me in multiple levels because guys and people in general feel that bigger girls should just pick whatever guy they want because there are little options for us or because we might have low self esteem

But I am here to say curvy girls can get whatever guy they want and do not need anyone to tell them who they should and shouldn’t date,wear or be. And most of us aren’t even worry about that we just want a successful career and a happy healthy life!

So that was all a little rant but also something uplifting I hope you guys enjoy and have a great dia!

IN THE MORNING:Habits for EATS

HELLO!!! Today (when I am writing this) has been a long day but I wanted to write so here I am

I’ve been thinking about various things about healthy eating and body positivity and thought why not do a post about it so again here I am

I’ll share five healthy habits to always do that can get you dropping some pounds or can make you feel better.

And I am going to give you guys and gals very easy to do healthy habits because I know that some of us including me are very lazy and tend to steer away from anything that’ll take us more then 5 minutes.

Seriously these are extremely habits!

guys although I wish I was a doctor I am not and all these opinions are my own and my own experiences so they might not work for you as they worked for meΒ 

Anyways five tips to a healthier you:

  1. Drink water! The easiest thing is to drink water with all your meal and drink a glass when you wake up. If your out and see these nice juices and sodas PUT IT DOWN! Water always in most restaurants its free and it’ll save you money !
  2. Substitute soda and juice with seltzer water or with tea. Now if your addicted to juice and soda (lets be honest with ourselves) you can do this slowly so say every Monday you’ll only drink water and tea instead of juice. And then as you progress you can make it two days, three days etc..
  3. Eat popcorn as a snack and up to one or two servings. Now I am not talking about that buttery popcorn you get at the movies or in the packs I mean popcorn like skinny pop(in love) or homemade if you have the energy.
  4. Get your serving of fruit in the morning. Yes cut an apple or grab some grapes and chow down. You have 1 to 2 servings of fruit already there.
  5. Make a smoothie and sneak in some veggies. Put a dash of carrot, spinach or kale in their and you’ll be set. An app that I really am loving lately is Daily Blends but they also have a website called Simplegreensmoothie. You can literally get any smoothie that your thinking of and if your running low on fruits and veggies they have a list you click through the stuff you have and it tells you what smoothies you can do YAY! (no I am not sponsored this app is just life)

And that is all hope this can help someone and enjoy the rest of the day :)))

BTW love the office and this is me too
too funny;; image not my own from imessage giphyΒ 

 

 

IN THE MORNING: Healthy Eating

NOW DO NOT get me wrong I like a little junk food every now and then especially when I am stressed with school

BUT, that does not mean you can’t have some healthy eating in there too and I know for many of us

It must be hard to juggle having a semi-perfect life while also trying to be completely sane but it is possible and

I am just here to tell you about my struggles and failures and still (failing) but mostly winning in the healthy eating war

I’ve always loved fruit but hated vegetable and I was never one to pick the healthiest food as a child

so most time junk food was my life and I was completely fine with that

UNTIL I started to gain a bunch of weight and felt myself being tired all the time and to add to that I started to have stomach pain and issues

and I just decided okay I need to eat healthier

BUT what did that mean? to everyone eating healthier means different things because not everyone eats the same and in a (hypothetical) meter people have different types of healthy eating habits

To me however, it meant that I would make smarter decision I would eat the apple instead of the chocolate bar because it was healthier

I would eat or share the smaller chocolate bar because its less calories while also satisfying my eating habits

I would buy more vegetables and fruits instead of snacks when going grocery shopping

And thats fine everyone goes at their own pace and who cares what other people think of your healthy eating

As long as you are doing realistic healthy choices

For me I knew cutting out all junk food was not realistic because eventually I would give in and eat it

BUT just moving toward healthier eating is a step and a big one so be proud wherever your at in the healthy living cause its great and exciting and it can also suck

but most times its great and you won’t regret it!

Slow and Steady wins the race ADIOSS!

Fruits Are Lifeeee

IN THE MORNING: PrOTECT that SKiN

Welcome to October!!! Its time for many things like Halloween (hands down my favorite holiday) but also my next segment of randomize!! YAY. This is the skin,body and health edition:))Β  Hope you’ll enjoy

So the weather is getting much colder in New York which means for those that normally have dry skin or dermatitisΒ  (yes like meee) its time to layer up BUT correctly

Now, just so you know this is what works for me and what I tend to try to avoid when fall and winter are approaching because most times my skin will not cooperate with the weather

I’ll give you some insight on clothes,skin moisturizing and dealing with dry skin tips

First layering on clothing is essential when the cold is approaching so sweaters and long sleeves come right along

You want to avoid fabrics with wool or any itchy material because it will irritate your skin and it will not be nice. Look for shirts and sweaters with cotton or soft material. If you choose to buy stuff online just make sure that the material does not look itchy(if theres fabrics sticking out or if it look rough) but, there is always a risk with online shopping that you don’t get what you want.

With leggings again you want to avoid stuff that are itchy but also thick leggings are not always the best. They trap in the heat and this could make your skin itchy and dry so try to get some light weight leggings shirts, etc that trap in the heat but a still thin. Some great clothes for the cold are in Uniqlo, you can also look at H&m and forever 21 for some basics.

Skin and moisturizing go hand in hand if you have dry skin

If you want avoid dry skin you must moisturize!

With that being said buying a good lotion and oil for your skin is essential and also using the right products while your in the shower!

Personally I hate heavy lotion or pomades for my skin because they are like an extra layer on your skin however, they’re are great for your skin because it’ll lock in the moisture

I usually use Vaseline(yes good old cheap vaseline) in the winter times but for the fall I usually just get a heavier lotion like Nivea or Gold Bonds other favorites of mine are Cetaphil and the pomade of Nivea.

Layering your skin with oil gives you an extra protection for dry skin. You can use any oil but my favorite is avocado oil(yes I use the big bottle that I also cook with)(its a mutli-oil), almond oil and vitamin E oil.

So final thoughts layer your lotions/oil, make sure to get a good heavy brand and buy clothes that are kind to your skin.

Hope you guys have a great day !!

me every fall/winter
