When Life Isn't Treating You Right...


I think it is normal to reach certain periods in life where you feel that everything is going south. From looks to school to jobs to just life in general, we can all feel discontent at where our lives are going. So here is some advice on how to handle that time in your life.

Show Your Emotions.

I think a lot of us tend to hold back our emotions when we are constantly busy and continuing on with life. Like now, we have to schedule in our sadness and anger, lol. However, whether alone or with a trusted person (whatever you are most comfortable with) show you emotions. Feel anger, feel sadness, feel everything you are holding back. It is okay and sometimes we need to yell and sob just to get over rough situations.

Write Your Emotions Down.

I think when we are raw with our emotions, writing down your feelings is a great source of inspiration take pieces from for better your life. Also, something to look back on when you are feeling better. A sense of something you overcame.

2016 Beauty Favorites


Time to tie-up some loose ends of 2016 with a Beauty Favorites Post. I did a 2015 Beauty Favorites post at the beginning of last year which was quite a hit, so I thought I would continue this newly found tradition. Many of you might notice that I do not have a lot of items compared to last year which is because I did not want to mention anything from last year's beauty favorites. 



All of you already know how much I hate primers, but I was quite pleased with the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer. It has a smooth, velvet texture and it does a good job of controlling oil on my t-zone. It is great for oil, but I have drier skin, so my skin look parched after a long day of foundation-wear. This year's foundation was all about the Covergirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous Foundation (#220). I never go for drugstore foundation because I need to test the color in order to get a good match (220 is a bit too light for me, lol), however, the finish of this foundation is beautiful. It has a nice satin finish and makes your skin look healthy and dewy. Concealer this year has to go to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. I bought this last year but started using it more this year. Phenomenal concealer when it comes to highlighting and concealing the under eyes. It is very similar to its foundation counterpart: The Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in texture, scent, and weight.

2017 New Year's Resolutions


Another year, another set of goals that I will forget in about three weeks. I can't say if I accomplished any of my goals of last year, let alone remember any of them. However, as I am slowly initiating myself into full-on 'adulting', setting goals will help me determine whether or not I am being productive or wasting time. Also, when another year goes by it will be great to see what was a priority to me at that time. For this, I will be quoting my good friend and hero, Michael Scott.

"K.I.S.S: keep it simple, stupid."
