So Sorry!

img_5366-1

I am deeply sorry that I haven’t been active so much so far this month. 

I am currently getting ready for classes to start in March. I had to get my loans and financial aid all done and perfectly. I am also having to update my shots since I am going to a medical based feild. 

Have no fear, I have a bunch of ideas coming for this blog in the next couple of weeks! 

I’m thinking about doing a series called Sample Sunday, where I will use a random sample [perfume, skincare, beauty etc] and use it for a week and then come back and tell you my thoughts and If i will end up buying the full size. What do you think about that? 

Also, expect more reviews on products, hauls and soon school related blog posts. 

If you have an idea or topic you would like me to write about leave me a comment or just contact me using my email. 

Love you all, and thank you for sticking by me 

It’s Snowing Like Crazy!

img_5300

Hey guys so I know I haven’t been active much lately. Sorry! I’m waiting for a couple things in the mail so i can do a birthday haul. Plus, my boxycharm is heading to me right now! Whooo! Soon my Facetory will be here, so there will be tons of posts going up soon. 

Right now, as I am typing this.. New York City is having a massive snow storm! I honestly cannot believe how much is snowing right now. It’s so much that before the snow storm hit they closed all schools and colleges [which I shouldn’t care since I’m not in school..yet!] In another post I will be talking about my goals for going back to school. So stay tuned. 

I can’t even open the windows to take a clear picture since they are frozen and even if I was able to the wind probably will mess up the shot no matter what. 

How is everyone doing today? 

I’m doing good. My daughter is right now playiny with her feet. I wish she was a bit bigger to play in the snow though. I am also, writing down ideas for my bullet journal. 

I think that’s it for right now. So i will see you all in my next post. 

Bye

img_4969

I think we can all agree there have been times that we are single on Valentines Day. We also can agree that it completly sucks, especially when the majority of your girl friends all have a significant other to spend the day of love with. 

I complied a list of ten things that us single gals (or gents) can do when we are single on Valentines Day.

  1. Pamper Yourself – there is no shame in going to the spa or the salon to get some relaxation done. No need to put so much stress on yourself. 
  2. Go Out To Eat With Family (or friends) – You know deep down your not the only one in the planet that’s single, why not ask some family members or friends to go out and have some fun 
  3. Buy Some Chocolate – You know you want to.. so just do it! 
  4. Binge Watch Netflix – Its time to watch all those episodes you been wanting to watch but never have time for. 
  5. Buy Yourself Jewerly – Been eyeing on that necklace or ring .. in hopes a significant other will buy it for you. Girl get it yourself! 
  6. Go Out To The Clubs – Your single. Why not have some fun without worrying about cheating (since your single) 
  7. Think About The Money Your Saving – So much money your now saving just to spend it on yourself
  8. Remember To Be Happy – Don’t worry before you know it you will be swept off your feet, until then don’t dreed being alone. Its the time to be happy. 
  9. Love Being Single – It’s hard. But enjoy it while it lasts 
  10. Catch Up On Things You Might Have Missed – You know there’s alot of things going on each and everyday, that we all might not be able to keep up. This is your chance. 

There you all have it. My list of ten things that you can do if your single on valentines day. I know its hard. But live it up, treat yourself. Only you can love yourself like how you need to be loved. 

21 Things I Learned in 21 Years

So it’s my birthday!! Yes that’s right, I share my birthday with a groundhog! From the title of this blog you can easily guess my age now. Yup! I’m the big 21. Which means I can finally drink without feeling gulity. Ha! Now before I continue to ramble about random things let’s get into what I learned. 

  1. It’s never too late to learn something new [or finish what you started.] You guys don’t know because I never mentioned it until now, but I failed so many classes in just almost 2 semesters of college; then I got pregnant and never looked back. That was Fall of 2015. Now its February 2017, and I’m ready to go back to school, even if its now to a new school and all about Medical Assistants. Hopefully by the end of 2017 I will begin classes! 
  2. Life Is Too Short To Spend It With Toxic People – Your better without them. 
  3. Being A Volunteer – I volunteered with AC&C [Animal Care and Control] and as well as I volunteered at Gen Beauty. I just love helping out. 
  4. Try To Always Be Punctual – I always try to leave the house with more time then I need to just in case the subways have some issues unexpectedly. I learned this the hard way.. one to many times. 
  5. You are the only one who can love yourself like you deserve – This took me a while to learn and realise. You gonna find out more in an upcoming post I have planned. 
  6. Don’t do something, If you don’t want to – There are always people who tell you, you have to do this. But always be the judge if you want to or don’t want to do it. It’s your life, not theirs. 
  7. NEVER apologize for being you – YOU IS YOU and your amazing. 
  8. Don’t make promises you can’t keep 
  9. Getting out my comfort zone – This started almost halfway into 2016, when I decided to take out the camera and put my face on Youtube. 
  10. Try to always have fun 
  11. People are always going to find something to judge you about – IGNORE THEM 
  12. Sometimes you just have to let go – It’s hard but we all have to do it. It might break us, but its better then to be broken. 
  13. Don’t be afraid to meet new people – Especially when your starting a new job or new class. 
  14. Avoid the drama and gossip surrounding you 
  15. Mom is always gonna be there no matter what – I’m one to admit, sometimes me and my mom argue and hate each other, but at the end of the day, she’s always the one who is always there no matter what. 
  16. Don’t take yourself too seriously – Life is short. Enjoy it. 
  17. Photograph and document important moments so you don’t forget them.
  18. It’s okay to cry alot – Let your emotions run free, it’s never good to keep them bottled up inside 
  19. Sometimes the person you gave everything too, didn’t deserve it. – I’m looking at you BD. 
  20. Follow your dreams – if it don’t work out, at least you can say AT LEAST I TRIED! 
  21. Live everyday like it might be your last

January Favorites

img_5186

This is my first ever favorites on this blog. Sometimes there will be beauty and skincare and then sometimes there will be other random things I loved during the month. But this month everything I beauty and skincare, so before this gets too long lets get into it. 


The first of my favorites is the SkinFix Foaming Oil Cleanser this is a sample size that I got last year at Gen Beauty NYC. I am in love with this. A little goes a long way, so this sample will last me a while. It foams like it says but afterwards leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. 

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub is another favorite. I really don’t have to go too much into detail because I wrote a review and you can read it right here.

Next is a sample of the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base this is a wonderful Moisturizer that goes and makes my foundation go on smoothly. I totally see myself buying the full size! 

The ModelCo Blush in Peach Bellini is another favorite. Duh. I’m once again not going to go into too much detail about then shade and everything cause I did that in my Ipsy Unboxing this month where I got this blush. 

That little thing that is upside down so you can see the colour is the Elf Smudge Pot in Crusin’ Chic. I honestly love this. I found myself this month not really reaching for powder eyeshadows, so this was my go-to. Its so easy to just use my finger and pat it on my lid and it lasts all day. 


The Lord and Berry lipcrayon was my go-to lippie this month. Why? Simple. It is a nice everyday like pink that goes with everything. 

I was finding that I was for the first time using more then one lippie at a time. Usually when I would use the Lord and Berry lipcrayon, I would on top use the Elizabeth Mott  Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Moxie Mauve. This was an amazing combo for me. The Elizabeth Mott lip tends to be a bit drying so adding the lipcraying either under or on top added a bit of moisture to my lips which helped a lot. 

I loved and I mean LOVED the Clinique Chubby Stick Mositurizing Lip Balm in the colour Mega Mellon this month. When I wasn’t wearing the other two lippies mentioned this was the one I was wearing. It adds a nice little amount of color also while adding some moisture to your lips. Most definitely going to buy the full size. 

Lastly, is the Elf Lip Exfoliator in Mint. I love how this exfoliates my lips. Plus, it tastes good. Not that I’m telling you to eat it, oh no! But I’m just saying that it won’t bother you. 

There you have it my monthly favorites! This is my first of many favorites that I will be having! 

What are some of your favorites of the month? 

Pan That Palette 2017 | Intro

img_5222-1

Today I’m coming at you with a challenge I have made for myself. That challenge is to hit pan on a palette by the end of this year! Crazy right? But I’m going to try my best to do it!

The palette I have choosen is the Urban Decay Naked Basics! I choosen this palette because, one, Its almost 4 years old! Two, I know I’m going to get a lot of use out of it since they are majority all matte besides one shade [Venus] and they are all the perfect neutrals for going to Medical Assistant classes. 


As you can tell I already hit pan on the shade Naked 2. My goal for this shade is to completely use it up, which I know I will be able to. 

Next, my goal is to at least hit pan on the first four shades [Venus, Foxy, W.O.S and Naked 2.] Now for the final two shades [Faint and Crave] I don’t really see myself finishing or let alone hitting pan on them because I don’t usually use a dark brown or let alone a black. If I get some use out of them well that’s great, if not, it’s still great. 

I will do a mid-year update on this as wel as a finale at the end of the year!

Seven Things About Me

  1. I am deeply afraid of heights. When I go on roller coasters especially the ones at Great Adventure I always have to try to sit in the middle and keep my eyes close until at least the first drop. It’s crazy how I say this when I went on many rides that are more then 200ft up in the air. 
  2. I never been on an airplane. I really mean never. Its crazy cause the only way I ever been out of state is by bus and only to New Jersey or Pennsylvania. Nothing too far. I have a huge feeling that I’m gonna faint if I ever step foot on a plane. 
  3. I am planning on going back to school. I already got an appointment to go on January 23, to see my potential school. My plan is to try and go back during the fall semester. You might be wondering what am I going to be studying? Well, I well had finally decided that I will be studying to become a Medical Assistant. 
  4. I really want to get my lips pierced again but going back to number 3,I don’t think that would be a good idea. 
  5. I LOVE playing games from Steam. I currently love playing Papers Please as well as starting to play Stardew Valley.
  6. One of my all time favorite games is… The Sims. I began playing the sims since Sims 2
  7. I am a full time stay at home mom. I love staying and spending all day with my daughter, it’s an amazing feeling especially now that she is growing so quickly I love seeing everything she’s learning.

Favorite Face Brushes

img_5140

I was going to do a complete post on my favorite face and eye brushes, but instead I decided to separate them. 


1. Sigma Large Powder – F30 [Ms. Bunny Travel Set] 

I use this brush for my powder foundation or even loose powder. I love how soft it is and how quick and easy it is to pass on the powder without it being too much. 

2. Sigma Foundation – F60 [Ms. Bunny Travel Set] 

Even though this is a ‘foundation’ brush I don’t use it for that. I like to use this more to blend out my undereye Concealer as well as pat on my Ofra Banana powder under my eyes. I need a good foundation brush, which one would you recommend?

3. Sigma Large Angled Contour – F40 [Ms. Bunny Travel Set] 

I love this brush cause of the angle so it makes it so much easy to put on blush and blend it out so it won’t be harsh. 

4. Crown Brush [Got this in a former ipsy; don’t know the number] 

I use this to put on my cheek highlight. Works amazing with the ColourPop ones!

5. Beauty Strokes Cheek Blusher [Got this from my mom a couple years ago] 

This brush is so old that I don’t even know where this is from. Either way this also has an angle but I use this for my bronzer and contour. Its amazing to blend it out.

Those are my favorite face brushes at the moment. I use all of these every single day! Hey! That’s why they my favorite right? What are some of your favorite makeup brushes?
