I know that I don’t share much of my family, but here you go! Meet the Woggn’s.
1. Take a walk
Walking can clear your mind so that you can see the world around you. Inspiration is everywhere, you just need to open your eyes.
2. Go somewhere different
If you normally go to a Starbucks every morning, try the locally owned coffee shop downtown instead.
3. Read a book
I know that you have a book in your room that you have been meaning to read, but have never gotten to it. Read it! So much inspiration can be on the first page.
4. Take a vacation
Even if you just go somewhere for the weekend. Get out of the town that you are in and go explore.
5. Change the screen saver on your phone
I know that this may sound a little silly, but I can’t tell you how many times that I have been inspired by someone’s wallpaper on their phone.
6. Create a vision board
Creating a vision board of everything that you want in life, or the things that make you smile can really change your mood.
It doesn’t matter if I am shopping or window shopping, it always inspires me. Grab your shopping buddy and go!
8. Listen to music
Listen to your favorite music! I love me some 80’s and 90’s country!
9. Listen to a podcast
There are so many inspirational podcasts out there, pick one!
10. Talk to your favorite person
Talking to someone that you love can really help shift the mindset.
Every Monday morning I sit down with my coffee, listen to a podcast, and write a list of everything that I need to accomplish for the week. That's normal right? As the week goes by, I will cross off everything that I have done on that list. Well when I look at that list at the end of the week, I get so pissed off at myself when I look at everything that is still unaccomplished.
One morning while I was sipping my amazing coffee, I was listening to the Style Your Mind podcast, hosted by Cara Alwill Leyba. She explained that she writes a celebration list. At the end of every day or every week, she will write down everything that she had accomplished during that time. So instead of kicking herself, she celebrates herself for all of her hard work.
What a brilliant idea! I will make two separate lists, one for everything that needs to be done for the week, and another for all of my celebrations! If I keep throwing out negative thoughts out into the universe about my list, guess what the universe is going to hit me with?

BOSS BABE, READING THOSE WORDS IN YOUR HEAD, WHAT DO YOU PICTURE? IS IT A WOMAN THAT WORKS HARD FOR WHAT SHE WANTS? A GIRL WITH A DREAM BIGGER THAN HER HAIR AND A PLAN TO MAKE IT HAPPEN? WHAT ABOUT A SINGLE MOTHER OF FOUR, WORKING TWO JOBS, JUST SO THAT SHE CAN FEED HER BABIES AND STILL HAVE ENOUGH TO PAY THE RENT?
What if I told you that you that all of those are correct. You don’t have to be the CEO of a huge company in order to be a boss babe. You don’t even have to have a job at all! If you have a passion for something and the drive for that passion, you are a boss babe. So for all of you boss babes out there, this is a post just for you! I am going to be sharing some tips with you to help you manage your time as a boss babe.
The very first tip that I have for you is to……wait for it…….GET UP EARLY. If you are a night owl like me, this tip is going to be very difficult to get used to. Let’s be honest for a second, the earlier that you get up, the more time that you have during the day to get your shit done! So before you go to bed try setting more than one alarm, and place your phone across the room you. This will make sure that you have to actually get up, and by the time that you turn it off, you won’t want to climb back into bed.
On to the second tip! After you get your ass up and your coffee is made, find somewhere that you can sit to gather your thoughts. Go sit out on the patio, head to the cozy chair by the fireplace, wherever you feel that you can relax the most. You can call it meditation or whatever you like best. Just set aside 10 minutes each day to think about whatever you want. This could be the time to; come up with blog post ideas, business proposals, school, maybe a stretch, anything that makes you happy. Try not to worry, there will be plenty of time for that after your work is done.
Something else that is helpful would be to make your bed (if you don’t already do that). When you make your bed, you won’t want to climb back into it. Why mess up the 36 pillows that you just arranged for only you to see.
When getting ready for the day, try to avoid all social media. Facebook can be an easy waste of 15 minutes believe it or not. We are all guilty of falling down that rabbit hole that we like to call Pinterest. “I just need to look at something real quick.” That is one of the biggest lies that anyone has ever told. That 15 minutes could go toward trying something different with your hair or adding on some false lashes that you don’t ever really have time to apply.
Once your makeup and hair is all done up, you want to make sure that you dress the boss babe part. Just remember to dress for the job that you want, not the one that you have! If your dream job is to be the face of Torrid 2018; put on those super cute capri pants, that bright coral top, the cutest heels that you own, and strut down that hallway like you own it! Oh wait..that’s my dream. Well, I guess that I can share it with you.
This next tip is by far my favorite and that is to set goals for yourself! In order to be a boss babe, you have to have at least something that you are working towards. It doesn’t have to be big, it can be as simple as drinking more water. Find something that you want to accomplish and put it somewhere that you can see all of the time. Try writing down some of your goals, take a picture of them, and set that photo as your wallpaper! That way you can always see them, and remind yourself that those goals need to be accomplished.
No matter what is happening throughout the day, you have to keep a positive mind. Moods can change very easily, but if you feel that bad mood coming through, try and shift your mind. This is easier said than done, but all it takes is practice. When you have a positive mind, you can get so much more done during your day. Especially when you aren’t still pissed off at the driver that cut you off on the freeway.
Another tip that can save you so much time as a boss babe is to keep your work space organized. No matter what you are doing, make sure that you can find what you need. If you are a makeup artist, make sure that your kit is packed and your brushes are cleaned. If you are a stay at home mom, make sure that you know exactly where the pacifier and blanket is. If you are a fashion blogger, make sure that you have that shoot outfit ready to be put on! Make it easy for yourself! Did I mention that this will save you so much time? I sure did!
My final tip for you is to read something inspirational! I know that this is the most obvious tip, but for some reason reading something that is inspiring makes me want to get up and work! I want to take on the world because a book told me that I could! Silly right? Well, whatever works! I am not really sure if this tip can save you anytime, but it sure can make your heart smile. Besides, inspiration is one of the many meaning of being a boss babe.

Disclaimer: I found all of the pictures on Google.
Hello everyone! Today I am bringing to you all my skin care routine. This routine is something that works for my normal to dry skin. I hope that some of you find this post helpful! Now, let’s jump right in!
Wash my face!
I like to use an exfoliate scrub cleanser to wash my face, since I wear makeup often, I feel like an exfoliant product helps to remove whatever is left on my face. This one is from Walmart and super inexpensive!
This product can be used for many things, but I like to use it as a part of my skin care routine. Before I wash my face, I like to use this to take off all of my makeup. It breaks down the mascara and just helps all of the makeup come right off. After I have washed my face, I like to go in with the coconut oil again, and apply a generous amount to my face. I leave it on for about 5 minutes and then wipe it off. You would be surprised how much stuff this product removes.
One all of that coconut oil is off I like to apple some type of lip butter or chapstick, this one is from the Fresh Picked collection at Bath and Body Works. It’s super hydrating and smells like strawberries.
Last, but not least, I use some type of mask!
I tend to get a lot of blackheads, so I gravitate towards a mud or charcole mask. These types of masks unclog pores! While I wait for my mask to dry, I like to clean up around the house or watch a show!
I hope that you all enjoyed this blog post! There will be more to follow! Make sure and follow my links down below so that we can become friends!
