How to Shop the 2020 N Sale
August 7, 2020
It is here! The good ol' N SALE. It is my 3rd year shopping and every year I learn something new! Year one I bought a lot of trendy items- which I have learned is a big NO NO. Maybe one trendy, and one splurge item. Funnily enough last year my splurge was a Free People tunic, $80. I wore it twice. This is why I say not to buy "trendy" items at this sale.
My Experience with Powder Brows
July 1, 2020
Ever since I was born I have been bleach blonde everywhere and my eye brows were no exception. It's nice having light hair on your legs, arms and head of course but the brows... HELLO they look neglected. I have been filling them in brown for years. I tried pencil, gel, shadows, you name it and I tried it. The best pencil I found was the IT Cosmetics Universal brow. I have the thick one and the thin one. I got my technique down pretty well after watching a makeup tutorial (Nikki Tutorials) but once quaratine happened and I did not wear makeup like at all and did not want to color them in everyday I was like ok I am over this. I took to my IG to get some advice and my girl Patty told me to go to Brows and Beauty A Go-Go and see her friend Carrie. I immediately called and made an appointment for what I thought was microblading... turns out, it was not!
Why I am THANKFUL for Quarantine
June 12, 2020
After quite a while of lack in motivation I am back! My desire to write took a spill once quarantine started, but there were a lot of changes that happened in Q that were very positive, and that is what I want to share today; why I am thankful for quarantine. As you know, I am a firm believer in what GOD wants is what is best. While I know a lot of people lost their jobs, the kiddos could not go to school, and we were not allowed to see our loved ones; for me I looked at the positive side of it. Luckily, I kept my job, I do not have children so homeschool was not a thing here, and I found new loved ones that I was able to get closer to. I am taking a trip down memory lane in my photos to show you how we spent our quarantine.
How I'm Putting Peace into Practice
April 6, 2020
Somehow I feel like all of my "peace" training for the last two years had prepared me for this quarantine. I used to be a person who lived completely and fully in the future, the what if girl constantly. I was always trying to plan my life and the lives of the people around me. But when a death would suddenly happen, or a break up would leave me inundated with emotions I had to learn to let go of control. I went to therapy and really focused on my faith. Overtime I started to learn to only focus on the day ahead not tomorrow or next month. I started to stop wondering "what if" and just let things be what they were.
What to Eat on the Road
March 10, 2020
I always get asked what I eat and how I stay fit while traveling for work all the time. I did a blog about this a few years ago but wanted to do an updated version as so many people responded to my stories about my travel nutrition. When I travel for work it's usually only two days. So before I leave my house I make a shake to take on the road in the morning.
