Ipsy glam bag

A good way to sample brands and learn about different companies that make non toxic cosmetics is to sign up for subscription boxes. You pay a small monthly fee in exchange for a curated box or bag of products tailored to your liking. I am a subscriber to Ipsy bags. For only $10 a month I receive 5 products in a cute makeup bag based on my favorites profile. The questionnaire is super easy, just let ipsy know what type of beauty products and color schemes you prefer and what brands you already use or want to explore. Out of the list of companies you get to choose from I picked all the ones that make natural and non toxic products. I am very pleased with the 3 bags I’ve gotten so far. I love the Trial size products. I can try them out see how I like it before I buy a full size.

Living holistically while broke!

Let’s just jump right in

” I been gone for a minute now I’m back with the jump off.” – LIL KIM

More specifically, I’ve been gone since February 9th 2016. That is the date of my last blog post. I can’t help but to laugh as I read it now. It seems as though I had it all figured out. I was confident that I could stay on a structured path of ” I got my shit together”. Little did I know there would be a roller coaster of events in the coming months that would teach me the power of adapting to what life throws your way. Nothing went according to plan. I fell in love, got pregnant with twins, high risk twins, and had an emergency C-section. I mothered my babies from the outside an incubator for their 3 month stay in the hospital’s NICU. I fell out of love, my body told me to stop eating meat, I randomly started getting eczema, I lowkey turned vegan, and eventually got my family back together. That traitorous journey has brought me back to the path I started on. I now have a new understanding of how I can truly live holistically. All while broke, tired, and with no time to spare. So come, take your jacket off and stay awhile. I have plenty to share, join the conversation.

Words of wisdom.

Think back to a time when you were ‘doing you’ to the highest level of ‘doing you’; give it a second you know what I mean. You were ‘outchea’ so to speak, happy, having fun, making moves, everything was copacetic. The insecurity or self doubt you may be feeling now would have never crossed your mind. That was you then and you are still that person now. Put your big girl pants on and make it happen. No second guessing yourself. Boss up and be the leader of your decisions. Know that whatever you chose to do is right, down to to the smallest everyday tasks. You can and will get back to a place of stability. I had to tell myself every morning that ‘today is going to be a good day, I will get shit done, make progress, and be happy with my small accomplishments.” It was hard but you have to find that inner confidence and pull it out. It may be deep in there but it’s in there.

Today’s reflection

Don’t get comfortable being uncomfortable. It is very easy to become complacent with your insecurities and bad habits. We have these problems and chose to leave them alone. We allow them to trouble us, yet we have become numb to their effect. Don’t be lazy! Self evaluate ever so often and address any concerns head on. For me I have gotten comfortable with being anti social. I want friends now that I live in Virginia but I am not making the effort to hangout or connect with anyone. I know that part of the problem is that I am not 100% ok with getting around being that I just got my license. So I made it a point to familiarize myself with the area when ever I get a chance. I acknowledged my problem and took the first step to fix it. Sometime today think about what is a constant struggle in your life and figure out the first steps to solving it.

Be Wonderful

After the tears- Make everyday wonderful


 1. figure out the moral of the story

2. take that ending and turn it into a new beginning

its all about your mind state. keep a positive attitude

3. put a laser focus on your ultimate reality,perfect situation,dream/goals

its not selfish to want better for yourself and to progress through this

4. Micro manage the obstacles that you know you will have to overcome

this is where journaling comes into play. Break it down and map out what you want to do in life and how you plan on getting there.
