February Favorites 2019

2 months down 10 more till another new year! I don’t know if it’s just me but these past 2 months went by too quickly! I feel like I haven’t really done much which makes me want to live up March to its fullest!

So what better way to start March then to do a February favorites!

Beauty

Saraya Cosmetics

It’s cruelty free and vegan so honestly already a win in my books! Saraya ended up doing a collaboration with HotTopic so it’s pretty convenient if you have one at your local mall! Products ranging from lipsticks, highlighters, and eyeshadow palettes are available! The lipsticks are around 8 dollars so not too bad!

I have the shades Jordan and Sweet Saraya.

Jordan is a pinkish/nude tone and Sweet Saraya is a blood red! Both dry pretty quickly to matte however I noticed Sweet Saraya tints your lips and takes awhile to fully come off. At least for me it does!

Songs

The songs I have been overly obsessed with in February and have in a constant loop!

Billie EilishBury a friend

Honestly it’s kind of haunting but so damn good! The music video reminds me of American Horror Story so I’m already obsessed!

Ariana Grande- 7 Rings

I love Ariana and this song had me feeling rich even though I’m broke.

Cardi B: Money

I loved the music video for this and how it had a different tone from her usual ones. Like Ariana this song makes me feel rich!

Movies

Spider-Man: HomecomingTom Holland is the best Spider-Man ever hands down don’t @ me! Seriously one of the best castings I have seen. If I can have this movie on loop I would because it’s that amazing! I can’t wait to see the sequel!

Thor: Ragnarok

Anything that is produced or created by Taiki Waititi is already going to be amazing. Definitely the most funniest Marvel movie!

Shows

I definitely have too much time now that I don’t have a job so Netflix has become more of an obsession. So I’m binging shows constantly so here are some of my favorites!

The Haunting of Hill House

I don’t know why I waited so long to see this but it was AMAZING! It satisfied my little horror heart and it’s just brilliant! The scenes, the cast, the story, honestly just everything! I’m still bitter about Nell and yes I cried so much because of it.

Umbrella Academy

I love Robert Sheehan so when I saw that he was going to be in this and did more research I was in love! Truly such a good show!

Jessica Jones

A show with a badass female lead sign me up! You ever have a show you know you are going to rewatch time and time again? This one does it for me!

Daredevil

The first season was alright but the second one definitely picked up the pace! I mean that introduction with Frank Castle? Ugh, I swoon! But seriously so good!

Well those are some of my February favorites what are some of yours?

Till next time!

Self love on Valentine’s Day tips

“How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you”- Rupi Kaur

Tomorrow is February 14th aka the only day in the year that is dedicated solely to love. Because holy forbid that love is shown any other day of the year right? I kid!

I don’t hate Valentine’s Day in fact I think it’s cute! Not my preference but it’s cute to see loved up couples all over the place!

To be honest though I miss the times in elementary school where people would pass out those cute V-Day cards. I remember putting so much thought to the ones I would give to certain people; only giving the best ones to my close friends. Those were the days!

But fast forward years later and I have yet to celebrate a Valentine’s with anyone. So over the years I have done things to celebrate Earth’s dedicated love day by myself.

Because self love is the BEST love!

Breakfast galore

The most important meal of the day serving it up Gary’s way! (That’s a scene from Spongebob if you didn’t catch that.) But no seriously making yourself or buying your favorite breakfast can literally change up your whole mood for the day! Especially if you don’t have the luxury of doing that any other day.

Spa yourself baby

Treat yourself to a at home spa day or actually go to a spa! I mean if you have the funds to do so. I’m cheap so I love at home spa days! I love to put on a face mask my favorite is India Clay Mask in case you need a recommendation. Draw yourself a bath and put in a bath bomb. Listen to your favorite calming music and just relax.

More food dudes and dudettes

Personally I feel like you should treat your self any day with your favorite foods but why not do it especially on love day? Eat your favorite foods and desserts! Make it a cheat day if you do that sort of thing!

Journal your thoughts and dreams

I LOVE journaling. Seriously any chance I can I love to write! Take the time on this beautiful day to do so! Light up your favorite candle and just write your dreams down! Your affirmations! In fact I want you to go to the mirror right now and just tell yourself that you are a badass human being! That you are loved and cherished. Anything you want! Do it!

Gather up the squad

If possible gather up your friends and don’t spend that day alone if you don’t want to that is! Share the love!

Show me the movies

It doesn’t need to be romcoms! Seriously it doesn’t! Just because it’s love day doesn’t mean you have to binge cheesy romcoms! Personally on this day I will probably binge some John Hughes movies because I love them so much.

What are some ways you celebrate Valentine’s Day? That is if you do celebrate; if not what do you do?

Until next time!

If We Were Having Coffee (1)

If we were having coffee….

I would tell you I been having a hard time posting anything on this blog. That while my head is filled with thoughts and ideas I can’t bring myself to actually do it.

If we were having coffee….

I would tell you that my mind has been all over the place since my internship has ended. That I really have no idea what I want to do in my life and that I am utterly afraid of wasting my 20s doing absolutely nothing.

If we were having coffee….

I would tell you that I finally finished F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and caught up with all the Marvel movies. That Tom Holland has got to be hands down THE best Spider-Man and no I am not ready for End Game. But oh so ready for Captain Marvel!

If we were having coffee….

I would tell you that my life so for being unemployed has consisted binging Netflix, eating Lokitos, and praying. Just hoping that one day everything just clicks for me.

If we were having coffee….

I would tell you that January wasn’t the best month for me and February isn’t shaping the way I thought it would. But it’s a new year and I am still bushy eyed hopeful of good things to come. So I’m not giving up.

If our coffee was done….

I would tell you that I hope to see you again soon and to not be a stranger! That I hope you bear with me as I try my hardest to post often!

Now if we were having coffee what’s new with you?

Till next time!

My 2019 Goals

“Develop an attitude of gratitude this year, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.”- Brian Tracy

When a new year hits I feel like everything has hit a reset button. Whatever negativity that happened in the previous year just vanishes with a Thanos’s snap (too soon?).

But seriously that’s the way I see it every single year. I truly love the idea of the whole new year new me because YES. It is a brand new 365 days!

Laugh more. Smile more. LOVE more. Do things that terrify you out of your comfort zone! Go on that adventure you been wanting! Focus on what blessings the Universe has given you instead of focusing on the things you don’t have.

Change your perception in life.

My goals for 2019 are really all over the place but are so connected to one another. Because if I had to pick one word for the year it would be “perception”.

YOU have the power to change your perception. I may not have this but the Universe has blessed me with this FOR A REASON.

WE ARE HERE FOR A REASON.

I truly hope that this year I find my reason in life. The reason I was created and put on this earth and I hope 2019 brings you nothing but love and happiness.

So here are some of my goals for 2019. What are some of years?

    Have a stable full time career
    Travel as much as possible
    Surrender myself to the Universe
    Live and not just exist
    Laugh more, smile more, and love more
