Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my routine when I want to curl my hair. I have transition into using my flat iron to get more natural looking waves. It was a bit hard at the beginning and with day of practice I have nailed down a routine I am happy with.

What I love about using my flat iron is that I never get the same looking curl. It gives my hairstyle a more organic look which is what I am loving right now.

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday.

IMG_2384

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is a special day… It’s my Birthday and I am excited to share with you a extra special blog post with you all. It’s 27 things life has taught me in the last 27 years that I have been on this wonderful world. Something are deeper than others but boneless important.

  1. Be kind to yourself, because no one else will be.
  2. Enjoy that donut or that piece of cake. Life is too short to waste good food.
  3. Do something that scares you every couple of months or every couple of weeks. Trust me it will be the best thing you can do for your personal growth.
  4. Do not let others define your self worth!
  5. Breath… everything will be alright.
  6. I promise you nothing is as chaotic as it seems. Nothing is worth your health. Nothing is worth poisoning yourself into stress, anxiety and fear.
  7. Don’t be scared to cut your hair. It will grow back.
  8. Find your passion and never let go.
  9. Drink more water your body will thank you later.
  10. It’s okay to be unique/ different own that SHIT!
  11. Tell your parents you love them because one day they won’t be there for you say it.
  12. Be kind to others.
  13. Travel as often as you can.
  14. Learn as much as you can about anything that you are passionate about and other things you aren’t.
  15. Try new things.
  16. Enjoy nature it’s a beautiful thing.
  17. Take care of yourself, you can’t run on empty.
  18. Your mental health is important. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
  19. Check your car’s oil and tire pressure (Girls can maintain their cars just as much as guys can)
  20. Allow yourself to make mistakes, you are human.
  21. Love deeply even if you have been hurt.
  22. Treat yourself to something nice every once in a while.
  23. Write your goals down. You will be glad you did!
  24. Pursue higher education if you feel ready for it. You won’t be disappointed.
  25. Read a hard cover book. It’s awesome.
  26. Drink Coffee/Tea.
  27. Cut out sodas and drink more water.

Bonus: Surround yourself with good people because once you get older those who stuck around will mean more to you than those who passed by.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I will see you all next week.

Love,

-M

This pretty much sums up my weekend. I worked on future blog post and then I crossed over to Maryland for a birthday party that happened to have been Barcelona themed. As you can see I didn’t get that memo.

Have a great day!

REINSPIRED!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I wanted to have a nice little chat with you all. I feel like this summer has been so hectic and I have been on the go and uninspired recently. This past weekend I finally took out my camera and captured what was in front of me as I was put on my makeup and putting together the final piece in my new room.

Here are a few pictured that I captured that made me fall in love with taking pictures and my little corner of the internet. I hope you like them as much as I do.

I plan on going full force on my blogging and I am even considering doing M-F posts in August. That’s how committed I am to revamp my blog and bring you all fresh content.

February Favorites 2016

IMG_0526

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you some of my February favorites. For some reason this month felt longer even though it only has 29 days. I tried a bunch of new things this past month and a few of them made it onto my current favorites list which is exciting. Here is what I have been loving.

IMG_0528

Skincare was one of the places that I added some new favorites this month. I have already reviewed the Wet’n Wild Setting spray you can check it out here. I am in the process of reviewing the e.l.f illuminating eye cream, but so far i have enjoyed it.

IMG_0530

This month I have managed to get less sleep than what I am use to due to my new job. I have started using my trusty Erase Paste concealer again and this flat top stipple crown brush. I absolutely love this combination and how easy it makes this concealer to apply and blend.

IMG_0532

I have a new favorite blush it is this Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in fanciful. This blush gives me the most amazing natural yet perky cheek bones. I am also loving my eos lip balm in strawberry.

Last but not least I am obsessed with these small Altoids in wintergreen. These are the perfect size to pop into your mouth.

What are some of your favorites? Have you tried any that I have mentioned? 

Have a great day!
