New Year Make-Up Essentials

January 12, 2018 in Beauty
 

Since the New Year is finally here, why not add a few more make up essentials to your everyday make-up routine? The weather has been chilly lately and my skin has been getting very dry. When I heard about the Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Make Up Collection I knew I had to give some of their products a try!

I headed to my local Walmart to look through the different makeup options they carry for this collection. What really caught my eye was the Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine and the Hydro Boost Concealer. I picked up the concealer in a light/medium which turned out to work perfectly with my skin tone. As for the lip shine, I picked up the Berry Brown shade. I don’t know about you guys, but I love sticking to neutral colors that enhance my features, while keeping my look natural.

Why Neutrogena Products?

So as I mentioned, I have dry skin during these colder months. My skin is in dire need of hydration. With the New Year here it only made sense that I add products to my daily make-up routine that would benefit my skin. With the Neutrogena Hydro Boost products they contain hydrating hyaluronic acid that keep your skin feeling plump and moisturized. Perfect for people who are like me and have dry skin during this time of year and perfect for anyone who simply just wants to add a little hydration to their everyday make-up routine.

How I Use My New Products

Over the past couple weeks since I’ve added these new products to my everyday makeup routine, I’ve fallen in love with them. The Hydro Boost Concealer applies so smoothly on my skin and immediately makes my skin feel more hydrated. I love how it covers up imperfections on my skin while blending well into my skin tone. I usually apply the concealer around my nose area and mouth, forehead and cheeks.

As for the Hydrating Lip Shine, I simply apply it after I have applied my concealer. I love that it looks so natural and makes my lips look nice and plump! I’ve been wearing this Lip Shine to work and my lips look amazing by the end of the day. I couldn’t believe how they still looked very moisturized and made my overall makeup look put together!

Both these Hydro Boost make-up products are now key essentials in my everyday make-up routine! They give my skin what it needs, more hydration!

Don’t forget to check out the Hydro Boost Make-Up Collection by Neutrogena at your local Walmart!

Also if you text “HYDROBOOST” to 39492 you get $2.00 off Hydro Boost products via ibotta. Pretty amazing right! If you guys try any of they Hydro Boost products let me know what you think, I’d love to know!

Hello 2018! My New Year’s Goals

January 11, 2018 in Life

Hi loves! I cannot believe that this is my first post for 2018!! Today I wanted to share with you all my new year resolutions. I hope to achieve these all by the end of the year! Which means I’ll have to be working hard day by day to reach reach these goals! I will be talking a little bit about each goal and why it’s important to me and what I plan to do. So are you guys ready? Ok! Let’s get started!

Waking Up Early

At the end of last year I formed a bad habit when it came to waking up. I would only wake up early because I had to get ready to go to work and I didn’t want to look a mess. I gave myself only enough time to make myself a cup of coffee, grab something fast to eat and spend about 30 minutes doing my hair and makeup. The minutes that were leftover were just enough to drive to work and be there about 5 to 10 minutes before I started my workday. Not a good routine if you ask me.

I used to be able to get up hours before work where I would give my body enough time to wake up and not be rushing out the door. I miss those days, so I want to work on waking up at least 2 hours early on the weekdays. However, on the weekends I plan to sleep in, but no later than 10am latest!
I plan to do this by just getting up, even if I don’t want to. I’m sure my body will soon get used to it and it will gradually become habit. What will I do with all the extra time you may ask? Well, that’s my next goal!

Read More

I used to love to read! Actually, I still do! But lately, especially last year, I have found it challenging to find the time to read. Something that I really don’t have an excuse for. I have decided that this year I will make the time to read. I want to learn new things and just grow my mind. Since I’ll be waking up early and having some extra time, I’ll use the extra time to read! Honestly this is my favorite goal and I can’t wait to start!

Get Toned Up!

I know what you’re thinking, yes, it’s cliché but I have more reason than ever to get myself in tip top shape right now. Although I haven’t set a wedding date yet, I plan on getting married sooner than later! So, I need to stop making excuses and really get out there and work out like my life depended on me. I want to tone up my body and gain muscle in my arms and legs. I especially want to work out my core area and tighten it up and of course I can’t forget my booty. I’ll try to get my workouts in during the mornings too because that’s my favorite time to work out!

Expand My Comfort Zone

Many of you may not know this but I’m an introverted person. Don’t get me wrong, I love to get social, but only when I fell comfortable with the people and setting. But sometimes I get intimidated by trying new things and pretty much stay in my comfort zone. Especially when it comes to being around a lot of new people.

Last year I really stepped out of my comfort zone by attending blogger events and meeting new people. I’m so glad I challenged myself, because I met such amazing women who inspired me to keep working harder.

This year I challenge myself to try out new workout machines. I usually stick to the treadmill, elliptical and stair-master, however, I want to start weight-lifting and do squats with a bar on my back and all. Like what?! Just thinking about it makes me a little nervous.

I also want to step out of my zone and begin working with other brands that I really like. I know I need to work harder in order to reach out to them for a collaboration. But with small steps I hope I get there by the end of the year! Or sooner!

Save Money

I really want to work hard on saving money, which means spending less. This will take s0me will power on my behalf because I love to shop. I will have to be smart with my purchases. Honestly guys it’s not that easy but I know it can be done! I plan to create a visual of how much we have saved throughout the year and hopefully this helps us stay motivated and continue to save.

More Fur Baby Time

Last year was crazy for me because the move and settling in took so much of my time. I felt that my fur baby was getting the short end of the stick. I feel so bad for the little guy… We were too focused on other things. I realized that my poor fur baby didn’t get as much TLC as he may have needed. This year I plan to give him all the hugs and kisses I wasn’t able to give him last year.

So there you have it loves! My New Year’s Resolutions! Let me know what goals you have planned this New Years, I’d love to know!

Saying Goodbye to 2017

December 31, 2017 in Life

2017 year of memoriesAs I sit here, reminiscing on what a big year 2017 was, I can’t help but wonder what big things await in 2018!

This blog post may be a bit all over the place, so just a heads up. Also, I may be a bit more transparent that I’m comfortable with but, let’s just go with it.

I don’t know about y’all, but the year 2017 seems like it went by way too fast. I mean, I feel as if though the year had just begun and now we are here, the last day of 2017. Honestly it just hit me this second. Tonight is New Years Eve and originally we had planned to go out and hit the strip since this it the perfect occasion to just go down to the strip.

However, we had just gotten back from California on Friday afternoon and I got my period. Not to mention, I don’t know if I feel okay to go to to the strip for such a big event just yet so soon after the tragedy that occurred a few month back. Luckily both my fiancé and I were on the same page to just stay in, eat some yummy food and have wine. He kept on asking me if I wanted take-out for the occasion… I kept telling him to ask me later, not realizing that the day has come for us to celebrate the ending of 2017 and the beginning of the new year, 2018. Yikes! I better think quick and help arrange what our dinner plans are.

Moved To A Different State

Ok! So like I was saying, this year has been a good one! I remember when it was the beginning of the year and I came down to Las Vegas with the fiancé and looked at various apartments. We are picky people and know what we like, so needless to say it was a long couple of days. Thankfully we found a place we both fell in love with and that was that. We had a move in date and when we headed back home we were excited yet sad because we were actually moving far from our families. I want to get into more details about why we moved and how we moved, so I will do just that, but in future posts! So keep an eye out!

Worked On The Blog

When we moved here, I decided to put more effort into my blogging. Even though I was working, I found the time to go out and take photos and blog. Blogging isn’t easy but it feels so rewarding when you see the final product and when you see that people enjoy reading your posts! I give all photo credits to my fiancé for being patient and taking time out of his day to go take photos of me for the blog. He’s the real MVP!

Living in Las Vegas has been amazing! My blogging life was taken to the next level when I had opportunities left and right and brands wanted to work with me. I was able to meet so many driven women of all ages! I was really taken out of my comfort zone seeing as though I get nervous meeting new people. But Luckily everyone I met was so warm and inviting that I felt right at home here in Vegas.

Went Back To School

This year I also made the decision to go back to school. An idea that I had played around with for awhile, even when I lived in Santa Cruz. You can read a little more about that here. I took the steps necessary and applied for a program over here in Vegas and was ecstatic when I received news that I was accepted. Let me tell you guys, it wasn’t easy. I cried a few times during the process. I really, really wanted this. Now I’m in the process of continuing my program and applying to my dream job.

Also, this year I turned 30! Another huge year in a woman’s life! I wrote an entire post dedicated to turning 30 years old. This is why I’m still in shock as to it being the last day of 2017. Time literally went by super fast!

We Had To Postpone…

Since it was a crazy time with the move and all, the fiancé and I decided to postpone our wedding. There was too much going on for us to really sit down and focus on our wedding. At first I was saddened by this because I had 2 or 3 year subscriptions to bridal magazines and I had already bought my wedding planner from The Knot… It just wasn’t good timing.

Although I was sad and upset that we had to postpone, I looked at the bright side of the situation. More time to get settled in our own place so that we don’t worry about that after the wedding. Lots of time to get ideas of what I do and don’t want for my wedding. Time to save up money and just overall time to enjoy our engagement!

We Have A Plan!

But, we have a plan! We have a timeline that only my family knows about. So far everything has been going according to our timeline. I plan on revealing more to you guys in the upcoming months on what our plan consists of. So don’t forget to subscribe to the blog so that you get notifications on when I post!

So pretty much, this was a huge year of change for us! We moved away from our families to a different state where we really don’t know anyone. Or should I say we “didn’t” know anyone. Luckily we have gotten to know so many people here and I can’t wait to meet more.

As for the new year, 2018, I only foresee that it will be a huge year for us! If all goes according to our timeline, we will be very happy and continue to reach for our dreams!

Hope you all have a safe and fun New Years Eve! Let me know what your plans are and how 2017 was for you?
