Recent Makeup Purchases 2018


I've been so obsessed with buying makeup lately, I've gotten so many that I haven't been able to wear all of them yet.
  • Morphe has become my favorite brand for eye shadows so to count I have 4 palettes. 35R Palette
  • This is my first time trying the Anastasia's contour cream kit and I've got to say it's great! Last all day without having to reapply. Anastasia Contour Cream Kit
  • I don't know if you know who Heart Defensor is (she's amazing, search her!), but she made a collaboration with E.l.F Cosmetics with this highlighter duo and I love it! I got it the second time it launched and now it's also available at Ulta ! Heart Defensor highlighter
  • I've now tried the famous Fenty beauty product, it's good but I think it's overly hyped. The texture isn't my favorite and it's not resistant to everyday actions. Needed to reapply.Fenty by Rihanna matte lipstick
  • The Anastasia Lip Palette is my most recent purchase so I haven't had a chance to try it out just yet. I'm looking forward to playing around with the colors and seeing the quality. Anastasia Lip Palette

My 2018 Resolutions


It’s finally 2018!! I have a lot of goals in all areas of my life that I’m planning to accomplish this year I’m feeling so excited and overwhelmed. I always feel that writing things down and putting it out for others to see gives me the feeling of accountability. 
This won’t be a super long detailed list but just what my priorities are for this year. Now as the year goes by I’ll announce my goals as i achieve them. 
These past few years I’ve been so carried away with getting things done that I completely overlooked my health and wellbeing. It’s to a point that my blood pressure is high and needs to be taken care of. This year I want to get my running stride back and focus on getting myself in the best shape I’ve been in. I don’t drink water unless I’m working out so now I’m working on slow getting a routine to maximize my intake. Luis is being as supportive as can be and we’re both pushing each other to achieve a healthier us. 

With our move I left my job in Los Angeles and took the holidays off to get settled into our new home and enjoy our family. Now it’s time to get the ball rolling for this year and get a new career. With job interviews already planned out thru out the next few weeks, transferring schools, and working more on the blog I’m aiming for a bigger picture. Luis & I have a lot of major goals we’re targeting to accomplish this year; and travel along the way. 

  • Count my blessings. I feel incredibly thankful for the life we have and when I think of how far we’ve come it gives me a sort of mental therapeutic feeling. Sometimes I feel a rush in accomplishing things and that times flying by too quickly that I forget to realize how far we’ve come. This is something I really want to remind myself of and have in the top of my list. 
  • Family. Now that we’re a 6 hr drive away from everyone it’s made me realize how much of a strong bond we need. I want to focus on more quality family time no matter the distance. I’m obsessed over my 3 month old nephew, I was there the moment he was born and want to be there for him every chance I get. 

Any tips you can recommend to help me reach my goals? What’s worked or not worked for you?
