2018 New Year's Resolutions that you can actually KEEP!

Monday, January 1, 2018

NEW YEAR, WHO'S THIS?


New Year's Day was my mom's favorite day to declare that she was going to have a better year when I grew up, and now its my annual ritual. So many people are using the word "GOAL" instead of resolution but its the same damn thing. We all want to do better, be better and feel better so I made a video all about it, HERE. Are you pro or anti New Year Tradition?

WEIGHT LOSS

I have spent most of my adult life struggling to get myself to the gym and it wasn't for me. I tried every kind of workout and I could never stick with it. I kind of just like to wake up and figure it out as I go so taking walks to different points in the city with my dogs, or my son, works best for me. I had a gym membership for 2+ years and I only went maybe a total of 1 month of that time. It doesn't help that I have extreme anxiety so being in social settings hinders my ability to stick around.

PLAN

Time management is not my strength. I am late to everything but business meetings and church! Using a planner, making a list or setting reminders on my phone gets me everywhere relatively on time. Im the last to arrive and the first to leave...but hey! I show up and thats all that really counts right? I suggest going to TJMAX, ROSS, and Homegoods to pick up some cute and affordable notebooks, pads, and planners to keep you motivated!

TRAVEL

I plan a few trips a year for me, because to be honest Kris HATES to travel. I hope to break him in one of these days! We are going to Mexico this spring and I can not wait!! I booked through Expedia and they have a great deals! I also got a credit card through them so when I make every day purchases (gas, groceries, shopping) I earn points towards hotel stays! Also there is a payment plan with cruises! You make a deposit and pay what you can until a month before your trip! Where would you go if you had the choice? Jude wants to go to London, England.

POSITIVE THINKING

Mindfulness is something I encourage my son to tune into daily. As he gets older, I respect the things he enjoys and things he does not...with limits. Staying Positive is essential to living a healthy and productive life. Negativity is second nature when you have depression and anxiety so the struggle is real! In my video I mentioned the book THE FOUR AGREEMENTS has changed my life, and its one I read over and over. My favorite part is not taking what other do and say - personal. Im so sensitive and I take everything personal haha so it helps! Read it and thank me later!

Hopefully you all have a beautiful 2018 - Positive, Strong, and Successful!

$1 Makeup - Affordable Makeup Haul from ShopMissA.com

Thursday, December 14, 2017


Dollar finds you can't beat, 
and can't wait to talk about!


 Hey beauty babes! I recently stumbled across a handful of hauls featuring $1 products from ShopMissA.com and I had to check it out! 37 products, rush shipping and 1 Youtube Review later...I have my top picks that you should consider trying!

1. AOA Studio Wonder Blender "BLACK" $1
This makeup sponge can be easily mistaken for the popular Beauty Blender without the hefty price tag. Im seriously sharing this with anyone who wears foundations. This Wonder Blender is black, but if you saw my video I also picked up 2 other colors.


2. AOA Studio Wonder Baked Highlighter "CUPCAKE" $1 
This highlighter was shockingly powerful and so beautiful! I honestly would have paid more for this product after 1 swatch. The packaging reminds me of e.l.f. but the pigmentation reminds me of Laura Mercier. For that statement alone...what are you waiting for?


3. KARA Eyelashes #DW $1
If you are looking for light weight natural looking false lashes, these are perfect and affordable! I have never found $1 lashes that were 100% human hair. Most cheap lashes, under $5, are typically synthetic and stiff. These look just as good as my drugstore faves from Ardell.


4. Santèe Concealer & Foundation $1
I don't usually gravitate towards full cover foundations because I like a light natural look for my everyday makeup routine. As I tested these products I was pleasantly surprised at how well the foundation covered every imperfection on my face and still felt light weight! In my tutorial I was able to use it as a concealer as well!

5. AOA Studio Wonder Skin Perfecting Blur Primer $1
I was really scared about this one! I had to say a prayer my face wouldn't fall off! We are all creatures of habit and as a beauty youtuber we have to switch it up more than the average Jane...so I jumped right in! To my delight - I had no issues! There is a hidden shimmer that made no difference. Just a heads up! It also has a unique scent but nothing I could get passed. 


Those were my hits in a pile of misses! If you have a few bucks to spare, check out ShopMissA.com and let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!
