In the night: gofundme 

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 Drama 

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 😊👌🏽


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: 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 AFTERNOON: CANDLES(Anderson Lilley Edition)

Now lately I’ve been having a lot of stress and I’ve been also juggling multiple things and then realize sometimes I need to take a break and relax

Now everyone has a different way of relaxing and thats completely fine
Mine usually consist of meditating, praying or doing some yoga

My lazy hack though of taking a break is taking a much needed nap or sneaking in a piece of dark chocolate (to reward myself of all the hard work)

One things that keeps me completely calm is Candles, not only do they smell so good they also have a relaxing feeling (just remember to turn it off if your taking a nap)

I usually like sweeter scents and have a horrible way of describing things so just try to understand (LOL for my sake) I’ll try

Five candles that I am obsessed with:

 

Like I said I apologize again at how horrible I am at describing scents but trust me these are so good and lastt…. I’ll list some of the ingredients down below to give you guys a sense of the scent LOL (sense – scent)

  1. Sicilian Tangerine -Ingredients include tangerine, mandarin, peach, jasmine Retail price: $42.00 (tin version also for a cheaper price)
  2. Mango and Lychee-Ingredients include mango, lychee(no surprise), nectarine and pink blossoms Retail price: $42.00 (tin version also for a cheaper price)

IN THE MAÑANA: RANDOM POST

Enjoy the rest of your day!!!

IN THE MORNING: Home is where the Heart is 

A little back story so I was watching this documentary called the minimalist(its on Netflix btw) and it really did open my eyes and give me a change in perspective

They essentially talk about how we usually collect all this stuff most of which we don’t use or has no value to us and how we can de-clutter our lives and have happier ones as a result

I immediately went through my clothes and took out items I knew I wouldn’t wear and decided to donate them instead

But I did minimal things here and there because I do believe you can still have decor in your house that means something to you

Five item essentials to make your home and you(obviously) a little brighter and better:

  1. This Himalayan rock salt lamp is a must have for your room or living room. When my mom first bought this I was a bit skeptical but when its turned on and you touch it, you immediately become calm. It can clean the air around you and can be used when doing some meditation. Its not too bulky so it won’t take a lot of space in your house. Also its 16 bucks which is a steal (compared to reg price)!!Screen Shot 2017-07-31 at 8.57.09 AM.png
  2. On the subject of Himalayan salt, there is also a cutting board which seems pretty cool and can also give a lot of flavor to your food! If your a foodie and love to cook this is definitely something to try out in a house or over the grill. I suggest getting the tray as well since the himalayan salt can get dirty. This retails for 30 dollars.Screen Shot 2017-07-31 at 9.11.07 AM.png
  3. Blankets are probably one of my favorite things in the whole world and because of this I keep a few in the living room for myself and guest. I like really soft cozy ones but that can be affordable. Target is a great place to get your monies worth without putting a hole in your pocket.

    Items above by number: 1. 2. 3. 4.

  4. Candles!! They smell so good and can give you a relaxing vibe (if your in the mood). They also can give your room a cute look without being overwhelming. I personally love candles in my room. Just remember to turn them off. I usually prefer candles in jars.

Images above: 1. 2. 3.

5. Last but not least some plants or flowers are great to give your place a cute look without spending a bunch of dollarrss. Remembering to water a plant is sometimes a hard job but seeing it grow is actually really rewarding. You can get flowers and plant seeds at your local store. Down below I’ll show some of my favorite flowers/plants.

Image above: 1. 2.

AND thats is all Comment,like, share and tell me some of your favorite items and if you would like me to do more of these

(images from section 1 is from amazon, images from section two is William and Sonoma, images from section 3 and 4 from target and images from section 5 is home depot)

IN THE AFTERNOON: Update on HAIR PRODUCTS

SOOO yayyyy it’s been a month or so that I have tried out these products and thought it would be a good time to give my update on them

Now for those of you that are probably reading this like what hair products I’ll leave a link right here

So starting off with the CHI INFRA shampoo I really like this product because it smells good almost like a cologne kind of smell and it’s not as sudsy as other shampoos I’ve tried it also cleans my hair really well. Also I use about two dime size of this product meaning this will last me a lifetime. ALSOOO THE 32 OZ IS ON SALEEEE FOR THE SAME PRICE AS THE 12 OZ ON ULTA!!!

The only negative thing that I have to say about this product is if I use like a treatment or product before using the shampoo my hair can feel kind of stiff after I wash it out but when I use it regularly it works good

The CURLS blueberry bliss leave in conditioner GAME CHANGERRRRR I’m in love with this stuff not only does it smell like blueberries(yum) it works so well on my hair and I don’t have to use a lot I usually use two quarter size on my hair and trust me when I say  usually use a lot of product in my hair (way more then two quarter sizes) but this stuff is BOMB and the SLIP is amazing

Carols Daughter sacred tiare fortifying conditioner another winning streak for me again its smells amazing and I like that it has a pump( I get lazy squeezing a bottle) and the slip on this is amazing I use about a palm size on my hair and it works wonders the only thing I’m sad about is that I wish they had a bigger size because I can see myself running out of this in about a month

SO THATS IT! LMK if you want me to do another random product try out I’ll love to experiment more on my hair on any products you would like me to try

Also what works for me might not work for you I have 3b/3c curly hair but all the ingredients on these products are safe and could work on anyones hair

IN THE : Why I Dislike Makeup/Beauty Trends

This is a random post for a random rant kind of day

Five reasons why I dislike makeup/beauty trends:

JUST an FYI its not that I hate the trends but these are just things that bug me out and might even bug you out

  1. Everyone(meaning beauty gurus or insta makeup guru or aspiring blah) swears by these oil or these brushes and I’ll tell you why I dislike it too and its because it unrealistic and what works for them might not work for you we all have different skin, texture, pigmentation etc… but saying that everyone that has tried it has gotten this magical skin is like hmmmmmmmm
  2. Everyone is starting to look the same and hey if your doing a cosmetic treatment for you go ahead but we should start to question why some beauty gurus are looking alike and start to remember that its good to be different
  3. This is just a personal hate of mine but NOSE HIGHLIGHTING now I do highlight my nose but some of the makeup I see while I scroll through my instagram/snapchat, the highlight on the nose is EXCESSIVE and it just looks too much and I get it if its for the occasional going out but everyday its just too muchhh
  4. Gimmicky teas and such and although they could actually work I think its best for the consumer to just have a balanced diet
  5. Everyone all of a sudden is a makeup artist and hey if thats what you want to do for the rest of your life don’t let me bring you down but not everyone can do makeup and the average person is also a self taught makeup artist

BONUS: Because I just remembered this while upload the picture OVER LINING THE LIPS

all I’m going to say about this is that we notice we can see it maybe not in pictures but when you hit that door outside we are aware

LOL sorry for this long rant guys this is just things that have been bugging me out for a while and I had to share let me know if I missed anything

Also comment if you agree disagree what you ate hows your day LOL ill love to hear from you guys

IN THE GoOD MORNING:SUMMER Care

So I decided to write some summer essential/needs for anyone that is going to be out in the summer:

  1. Since I have dry skin (as you guys already know) I tend to get even more dry in the summer especially around my face area because I also wear makeup so to combat that I use a facial cleansing oil. I’ve been using the Julep love your bare face and it has been amazinggggggg. Its 28 zollas which is a bit expensive for 3.5 oz but its worth it.

And I am hard to impress but this stuff I LOVE. Not only does it get rid of all your makeup and you won’t have to go in with wipes or another cleansing wash. It also hydrates and balances your skin. Its crazy because I’ve noticed my skin becoming more normal after using this. You can use this to cleanse your face daily or to take off your makeup.

  1. Rose waterrrrr has been a holy grail for me. I use it for everything to refresh my face, to set my makeup, to hydrate my skin everyyyything. Now I have two that I enjoy first being the Mario Badescu rose water because its cheap 7 zollas for 4.0 oz and its really sets your face and hydrates your skin.

2. But the rosewater I’m super impressed with is the glossier soothing face mist. Now I’m already an advocate for glossier stuff because everything that I have purchased from them has done my face wonders. I don’t know what it is about this face mist but it can set and hydrate but also it balances your skin. I saw a dramatic difference in the way my skin looked and feel it was crayy. Also it has a lovely scent for those that like a good scent.  Screen Shot 2017-07-07 at 11.35.28 AM.png Its 18 dollars and I’ve repurchased this twice.

Now the last two items I want to talk about our my favs favs

One is the simple protecting light moisturizer in spf 15 this is awesome for the summer because for dry skin people who have those issues of finding a facial cream or even a body lotion that’ll moisturize your skin without leaving like an oily residue is hard. But this is it and its works very well under makeup as well. Its gentle on the skin and really hydrates. Its 10 dollars which is awesome (thank god for drugstore brands)

Now the lasstttt thing (sorry by the way that this is a bit longer then most post but I get super excited about skin care) is the Anderson Lilley Manhattan beach beach butter body cream. This stuff is sooo good. It smells amazing, it literally smells like being at the beach and its super hydrating on the skin. I put this on multiple times a day because its so good. Price is 24 dollass for 5 oz and its very much worth it. It can be used for your body or as a hand cream.
