You have goals in life…. You may not know that you have goals, but you do. If you have told yourself that you’re going to get your husband to notice your new hair, that’s your goal. If you are trying to get all of the laundry done before your mom gets home, that’s your goal. If you are someone like me, then you have so many goals, it is hard to keep track of them all. If that’s the case, then I am here to help. I have created two kick ass lists to help you get your shit together and set goals like a #bossbabe.
Before you even begin to think about what you want, you need to be thankful for what you have. Praise the hard working husband that works 12 hours a day to support the family. Be thankful for the car that you drive around. Be thankful for the house that you live in. Take a second to think back to the days when you were living in a shelter home, and be thankful that you aren’t there anymore. Knowing that your bills are going to be paid on time and your kids are going to be fed is something to be thankful for. Giving thanks is so important, because if you are not thankful for what you have, then why are you working so hard for something that is unappreciated?
Now that you have given thanks to your mom for being the best mother that she can be, it’s time to move on to the fun stuff! When setting goals, you need to keep a few things in mind. This is going to be very important when writing your goals out.
- Your goals need to be specific. If you are unsure of what you want, how are you suppose to achieve the goal?
- Make sure that your goals are realistic. I am not saying not to shoot for the stars, but they also have to be attainable. If not, you can will discouraged and give up. We both know that you don’t want that, now do you?
- Set a time frame for each goal. Knowing that you have a time period will keep you on your toes. It will also get you to achieve your goals before your time is up. You will accept your own challenge!
- Take action! List the steps that you need to take in order to achieve each goal.
Take as much time as needed and write down your goals that need to be accomplished. It can be anything; to loose 30 pounds, get the house organized, reach 10,000 blog and Instagram followers. Big or small, write them all down. At this point it doesn’t really matter where they are written, we just need to make sure that we know where the list is in a little bit. You know what, I lied, it does matter where you write down these goals. How about printing out the goals list that I have created for you! Setting goals is fun, isn’t it?
Here you go:
Now that you have created your goals list, it is important to write down the steps that you are going to take to achieve those goals. No matter what the goal is, you need a plan of action! As promised, I have a third and final list for you! This will help you understand what it takes to get those goals accomplished. Print one of these for ever goal that you have.
It’s very important to keep these lists somewhere that you are going to see them every day. Put them in that important binder that you have. Tape them to the inside of your planner. Frame them or even put them on your refrigerator. Wherever you think will work the best, let them shine!
Now all that is left is to have a positive mind set and start crossing those bad boys off of your list! Before you know it, all of your goals will be achieved, and it will be time to make new ones. Have fun!
I got an overwhelming amount of love on my last #bossbabe post, so I hope that you love this one just as much. If you would like to know what my goals are, let me know. I would be more than happy to write a separate post just for them! Be sure to tell me how the lists worked out for you!
I would like to dedicate this post to my beautiful Aunt Cindy. Thank you for being the inspiration behind this post, I love you so much!
Inspiration is everywhere, I came up with this blog post idea in the gardening aisle of a Big Lots.
I know that hair care is not talked about a lot on my blog, but that doesn’t mean that it is not important to me.
My hair goes through a lot. From the straightening and curling to the waving. My hair gets very dry, it needs a trim and a little drink sometimes. Trimming your hair every six weeks is probably the best thing for your hair. Unless of course you have very healthy hair and are just lucky like that. Unfortunately, that isn’t me and I need a trim. I like to go as often as I need it. I know that it’s time when my hair feels horrible at the ends and starts sticking together. After a nice trim, I like to go home and put a hot oil treatment on my hair. The best one that I have found is this Jamaican Mango & Lime Black Castor Oil with Coconut. I cannot tell you how incredible this product is! It smells amazing and can be used for so many different things! I put a generous amount into a microwavable bowl, heat it up for a minute, and then carefully apply it all over my hair. After it is all in and getting soaked up, I will leave it in for about an hour or two, and then wash it out.
After that is all washed out, I will spray a generous amount of the HnP Placenta Super Strength Leave-In Instant Conditioning Treatment. Woah, that was a mouth full, but so worth it. It is for extremely damaged hair and helps with the tangles. As you can see in the picture below, I have gone through quite a bit of it. Once that is in and my hair is brushed out before I blow dry, I will go in with the Turn Up The Heat Protection Spray. I have been using this heat protectant for years and can’t say that I have found one to replace it. When using this, I have to make sure that I don’t go crazy with it. If I spray too much, it will make my hair greasy and weigh it down. Seriously, after my hair is dry, it’s like I have a brand new head of hair. Shiny, soft, smells, and feels amazing!
For styling my hair, these three babies are all that I need. If I am curling my hair and need that extra little volume, I will spray some of the Not Your Mother’s Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray. It just gives my hair that extra push that it needs.
Being that my hair is very dry, I don’t wash my hair every day. With that being said, I like to use one of two dry shampoos between washes. The first one is the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Dry Shampoo. This stuff smells like I am at the beach, I have already gone through three bottles. I am obsessed, no joke. The other dry shampoo is the Mystic Divine Coconut Complex Texture Finishing Spray. If you haven’t already caught on, coconut and coconut oil is very good for the hair! All of these products are very affordable and AMAZING. I can’t live without them and I recommend them to all of you! If you have damaged hair or just want that extra shine!
I know that it’s not technically summer yet, but here in Bakersfield, it has already been over 100 degrees! Just because it’s gross outside does not mean that I need to look gross.
I am in need for some cute summer clothes, but something affordable. Where do I go? If you said Forever 21, you are absolutely right. How cute is this off the shoulder top that I picked up from there? Guess how much it was? Never mind I will just tell you… $12.90. Yes, the mind was blown, you’re welcome! I love Forever 21, not only are they affordable, but they have a large variety of plus size clothes. I know that every time I walk in there, I am going to find something cute. That tends to be good and bad. This palm tree print on my shirt has been everywhere lately. Everything about this top is just so adorable and appropriate for summer time! This top is off the shoulder and very light weight, it also cinches in at the waist to give a flattering look to the body. I absolutely love it!
What would summer be without sunglasses? I picked these cute ones up from Charlotte Russe for $5.

There you have it, my fashion find for today!
