FIVE WAYS TO DEAL WITH SELF-DOUBT

We live in a world full of constant pressures.

We often come across the perfect mom, dedicated wife, the amazing body, great career and great relationship.

Honestly, as much as we try not to compare ourselves, we simply can’t.

Crystal Cove

We simply can’t help but to pressure ourselves with what we “think” we should be doing.

Self-doubt is something that is hard for us to understand, but that we constantly fall for.
I’ve been a victim of this feeling several times.

As we begin to age, not that 28 or 30 is such an old age, we often get pressured about what we should accomplish by a certain age or time frames.
For the most part we put the pressure on ourselves.

FIVE BEAUTY RESOLUTIONS I’M MAKING FOR 2018

Beauty Resolutions 2018
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.

BERRY STRUDEL

NYX Berry Strudel

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 amazing offer, usually each lipstick is around that price for just one.

I was instantly captivated to a specific shade on the package.
I’m sure you know by now how much I luffffff bright lipsticks.

THINGS I WANT TO TEACH MY DAUGHTER ABOUT BEING STRONG

THINGS I WANT TO TEACH MY DAUGHTER ABOUT BEING STRONGBeing 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 a I do.
For the past few years, I’ve had the wrong concept when it came to being strong.
With a little time I was able to gather some ideas on what to teach my daughter about being strong.

MY WORD FOR 2018

Hello 2018!

For this year I wanted to start my first 2018 blog post with something different.
This is the first time I am choosing a word for 2018.

GROW

verb
(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 been wanting 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.

WEEKEND GET AWAY WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK

Weekend getaway’s are my favorite.
I suffer from wanderlust, so there are times where I will just have this urge to get up and leave somewhere.
Now my brokenness, doesn’t allow me to do this as much as I would like.
But I do try to do it as often as I can.

San Antonio Riverwalk

Every so often we all need to get away without a plan.
Vacations are awesome, but honestly they are stressful to plan.
Not to mention it can take months to plan and save for.

Our financial situations don’t allow us to just get up and leave and get away all the time.
Yet even going to a small town near your area gives you renewed energy.

It’s good for our minds to be in a different environment.

MAKE UP LOOK FOR ANY THANKSGIVING GET TOGETHER

We are officially so close to the end of the year.

How did this happen?

We are only a few days away from Thanksgiving, which means we get to celebrate togetherness with our loves ones.
Also this holiday calls for a good make up look to create.

I grew up in Mexico, so honestly we really don’t celebrate the day so much as people that are born in the US.

Of course I have to establish some of the US culture into my daughter’s life and celebrate Thanksgiving, so we celebrate small.

Not to mention I do not like turkey.

#THNXBIRTHCONTROL

About two weeks ago, I had the pleasure to attend a brunch event with Planned Parenthood and We All Grow Latina Network.

We had brunch while we were being educated about what, and how planned parent hood has and can help our Latino community.

When it comes to the sexual topics, and sexual health, the Hispanic community tends to go nuts about it.
Meaning, they do not want to discuss and almost make you feel like you’re committing the biggest sin, just by simply talking or asking about it.

In better words, there is a huge taboo around this subject and Latinos.

#Fight4BirthControlOne of the biggest taboo within the latinas, is birth control.

#WEALLGROWFAMILIA 2017 RECAP

Tell me if Ana Flores and the We All Grow Latina Network don’t freaking ROCK??!!!

They always, always exceed all expectations!

Lately I have been all about the feel of being at the right place at the right time.

This past month I was able to attend the second #WeAllGrowFamilia Event at Munchkin headquarters.

This year I had a special guest to go with me.

My daughter was able to attend the event with me, since we had a last minute baby sitter hiccup.

I was a little skeptical and afraid she was not going to enjoy the event or ask me to leave every hour.
Luckily, that was not the case, she actually enjoyed and kept on asking questions about people in there.

She was very curious as to what everyone was doing there and what they did.
