Back in August, I traveled to New York City for the very first time in my life.
The Big Apple was on my to-do list for sure, but I never felt that “OMG” feeling in my stomach to visit. Am I making any sense?
Well, I hope I do.
I arrived late in New York after my flight got delayed for 3 hrs.
I was scared, and I’m not going to lie. You know me, I’m always acting strong.
On the ride to my hotel, I couldn’t concentrate on what my Lyft driver was telling me, (I had a very, very talkative driver) I was so focused on seeing everything around me. Read more
It is no secret that a lot of #WeAllGrow Summit attendees were a bit stressed about what to wear for the event, including my self.
I had a vision of what I wanted to wear. Although low key, I knew it wasn’t going to work out for me.
Two weeks before the event, I started to look for outfits officially. You know it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t leave things till the last minute. I researched online boutiques, amazon, clothing stores, the mall; you name it!
I think what got me a little stressed was the welcoming party on the first night. Last year’s event was something more chill, so it was easy for me to put an outfit together, this year Neutrogena wanted to go all out with a welcoming carpet party.
I am not really into dresses. I’m short, so I don’t think that they favor me very much. Plus you know I got lonjas (love handles)
Finally, two days before the event, I was able to put my outfits together. I wanted to share with you all on this post.
For 2018 I am making some beauty resolutions. Now the big goal is to be able to stick to the resolutions all year long.
You all know I have been dealing with acne all year long. I must confess I did pretty good creating and maintaining a beauty routine all year long. Honestly, it was a bit challenging, especially when you’re exhausted, or if you love to sleep like me.
For 2018 I want to improve my beauty routine even more by setting up some resolutions.
It’s no surprise that I love colorful lipsticks. While strolling through Ross, I came across a package from NYX with some lip glosses. The package came with 3 Intense Butter Glosses for $6.99. Now you know I couldn’t pass this fantastic offer. Usually, each lipstick is around that price for just one.
I was instantly captivated by a specific shade on the package. I’m sure you know by now how much I luffffff bright lipsticks. Read more
Being strong is a difficult subject to discuss. 2017 was the year where being too strong finally bit me on the tail. 2018 I want to focus a little more and experience vulnerability. Confession, I can’t say vulnerability in real life lol.
I’ve discussed before how my daughter experiences sensitivity a lot more than I do.
For the past few years, I’ve had the wrong concept when it came to be strong.
With a little time, I was able to gather some ideas on what to teach my daughter about being strong.
For this year, I wanted to start my first 2018 blog post with something different. For the first time, I am choosing a word for 2018.
(of a living thing) undergo natural development by increasing in size and changing physically; progress to maturity.
For the past few years, I’ve been afraid to grow. I’ve been making up tons of excuses. I have been sitting in my comfort zone for too long, way too long, I would say. I’ve wanted to learn more or do different things.
I feel like my brain is not capable of learning more than what I know, which is dumb, I know.
