What I think of SKIMS

If you know me, you know I love Kim Kardashian West, always have, always will. That’s why, whenever she comes out with another product that I am interested in, I have to test it out.

2019: The Year of Me

Happy New Year, everyone!! I hope you had awesome celebrations last night, I had a couple friends over to hang out at home and we had a blast! Chinese food, Sangria, games and of course, the New Year’s show! Not only is a night in fun, but it’s also safer and cheaper…so yay!

I wanted to take this time to reflect on 2018 and lay out some of my plans for 2019. This was an awesome year, but it went by sooo fast! When I look back at my year I would definitely have to say my biggest accomplishment was graduating college in May. This year was full of ups and downs, and the biggest thing I learned was to go with the flow.

The Real Deal about Blogging

It occurred to me this morning when my boyfriend’s mom showed me an article she found called “The Truth About Blogging” that all anyone wants to know when they start a blog is, “how do I become successful” “how do I get noticed” “how can I get readers” “when and how can I have things sent to me for free.”

Thousands of people read this article, and you can read it too right HERE, (I don’t condone some of the language) I am assuming because they wanted to know the secret potion on blogging. There must be an easier way, there must be a secret equation that I can apply  to the backend of my site to ensure that I get thousands of views on each post and to make sure I have no bad days on my blog. Guess what I realized when I thought about that very thing myself? THERE IS! Do you want to know what it is?!?!….

How I prep my skin for the cold using Aveeno products

IMG_1134.JPG

Just in time for time for the colder weather, a package from Aveeno showed up on my doorstep!

Two years ago when I was having trouble with my skin, I went to the dermatologist and she recommended some Aveeno products to me. Ever since that day, I have been hooked on this quality, affordable and clean drugstore brand. I got my mom hooked on it, my roommate and even my boyfriend! All of their products are so gentle that you simply cannot go wrong. Their facial cleanser and clear complexion moisturizer cleared up the problems I was having with my skin at the time so I am forever loyal to them!

Before receiving these three products, I had been using their clear complexion moisturizer anyways and now, I just have more Aveeno products to add to my collection! Let’s get into them:

Fall Jackets + Hello!

IMG_0692.JPG

Hi everyone!! It’s been a couple weeks since I last wrote a blog post and I think that’s because I am having a bit of an idea block lately. I have some ideas for blogs that I want to execute but now is not the time, so that leaves me like (……).

Anyways, the last time I blogged it was hot, today it’s cold. Somehow in a couple of weeks it went from Summer to Fall and honestly, I am kind of okay with it! I thought I’d check in today to say what’s up and that I am already stocking up on my fall jackets.

One Year Serious Blog-iversary

Serious blog-iversary. What’s that?

Today is August 24 and it’s my one year serious blog-iversary! I’ve owned and operated my blog for four (almost 5) years now BUT I did not keep up with it or write as much OR be half as serious as I have been with it this past year.

I am so grateful that something clicked in my head a year ago that this blog could actually be the most amazing hobby, creative release and past time in my life…it’s been the most fabulous and fun journey.

How I Maintain my Long Natural Nails

IMG_0320.JPG

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about my nails because I get a lot of questions about them! I shamelessly will stop into the nail salon from time to time to get an occasional regular manicure for the sole reason that the nail technician usually compliments me on my nails…. (: Modest, I know!

All jokes aside, I really do get questions on how I keep them so long. They’re 100% mine and usually don’t have gel polish on them!
