Current Skin Care Routine

I have been killing it in the skin care game lately, so I was inspired to share all of my current skin care products with you.

  • I am in love with the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove all of the makeup and dirt from my face.
  • The Proactiv system helps to cleanse, tone, and repair my skin. Their mask is incredible.
  • The Drunk Elephant cleanser annd moisturizer is great when I want to switch it up from the proactive.
  • Neuotrogena Hydro line is life. I can’t get enough and want to buy more of their hydro products.
  • The elf under eye cream is great for anti winkles.

Do you use any of these products?

Smile with cariPRO Electronic Toothbrush

If you know me at all, then you know that my smile means the WORLD to me. I have always been obsessed with how white and clean my teeth are. If you don’t believe me, just ask my Aunt Cindy, she’ll tell you.

With that being said, I have some very exciting news for you. Smile Brilliant has recently launched their cariPRo Electric Toothbrush!

They have been so kind and have sent it to me to try out and share my thoughts with you.

I would first like to say, if you have never used an electronic toothbrush before, then you are missing out, they are a game changer. My teeth feel so much cleaner and whiter since I started using the cariPRO. I strongly believe that this toothbrush gets the job done.

There are 5 different settings to choose from, I personally love the white setting. I feel like it not only cleans my teeth, but it helps prevent stains from my coffee or tea.

Clean, White, Massage, Gum Care, Sensitive

The set that I received came with the Ultrasonic toothbrush, two brush heads, and a charger.

5 Goals for Instagram

I have been on Instagram for over four years now. In that time, my style and interest have shifted dramatically. Today I am sitting down to let you in on my new goals for Instagram. These are goals that I believe will help to grow and inspire those that follow along with my life.

  1. I like to constantly set new goals for myself to see what I can achieve. As of right now, my follower count is at 3,417. My number one goal is to get my follower count to 5K. Yes, I do understand that my follower number isn’t what matters the most, but it feels good to know that my Instagram is growing.
  2. My second goal is to try something new. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the lack of time that I already have, so I don’t always get to try different things. I am going to make it a priority to go visit new places and have photoshoots at times that I typically wouldn’t.
  3. Another Instagram goal of mine is to post on my story at least once a day. I know that people are looking at stories more now than they are posts on the grid.
  4. Becoming more steady with posting. Sometimes, as I said before, time slips away from me. Then before I know it, it has been 4 days since the last time that I shared anything with you. I’m going to push myself to become more consistent with everything on Instagram. Taking photos, posting, and interacting with more people and brands.
  5. My final goal for Instagram that I’m going to share with you; is to become more inspired and roll with it. Sometimes I forget to just take a minute for myself and live in the moment. The only way that my Instagram can thrive, is if I also thrive.

To wrap up this post, I just want to thank you for reading along and taking a look into my Instagram goals. I encourage you to sit down and write 5 of your own goals for whatever you would like to achieve. I am going to turn this into a series and call it my 5 Series. I know, typical, but whatever works.

If you are not already, make sure that you are following along on my Instagram. Send me a message and let me know that you came from the blog. I love meeting and chatting with new people.

My Favorite Vitamins

Now that I am getting older, this is the perfect time to make sure that I am taking my vitamins. I am mezmorized by these Thrive Thyroid and Metabolism vitamins.

These Eu Natural Products are perfect for me. I have been going to the gym a lot more and theis will help to regulate my metabolism and promote hormonal balance.

They are vegetarian and gluten-free.

I picked up my Thrive vitamins from Amazon

Make sure to check out the other vitamins that are sold from Eu Natural.

Product Review: Olay Clay Stick Masks

I know that I have been gone for a little bit now, but I am back and better than ever. Expect more blog posts coming to you soon. I recently had my nails trimmed down so now it’s that much easier to type! #GirlProbs.

Today I have a product review for you. I have been hearing all about how amazing these clay masks are, so I had to find out for myself.

These little guys retail for $13.49 each, which isn’t too bad for a drug store brand. I picked them up at my local CVS.

There are three different masks;

  • Olay Glow Boost White Charcoal Clay Face Mask Stick

  • Olay Pore Detox Black Charcoal Clay Face Mask Stick

  • Olay Fresh Rest Pink Mineral Complex Clay Face Mask Stick

I am always in need of a good detox and some glowy skin.

So I picked up the two masks that would fulfill my needs. Let me just say, I am 100% happy with my choices. These masks are so easy to use, they are mess-free, and travel-friendly!

I don’t have to worry about using a brush to apply the mask, I don’t have to worry about getting my hands dirty, and I don’t have to worry about the lid getting messy. It is the perfect mask for me.

The packaging is adorable and easy to use, it makes me want to use it all of the time.

As for my skin, it has been clear and glowy, just the way I like it!

I am giving this product a 10/10 for sure. Have you tried it yet? If not, what are you doing with your life?

Setting Goals For The New Year: 2019

 

We are about to step into the new year and for most of us, that means that it’s time to plan new goals. Today’s blog post is all about setting goals for the next year. If you are a goal setter like I am, then you’re going to love this post!

When it comes to planning out my goals, I love to set my overall goals and then I also set monthly goals. A tip that I learned from a friend, is that it’s great to set a timeline out for each goal. So without further ado, here are some of my goals for 2019.

OVERALL GOALS

  • I’m going to put all that I can into my blog and Instagram. Writing and creating content is such a passion of mine, so why push it off to the side? This is going to be my year to shine!
  • To piggyback off of that goal, my next would be to have a new blog post up once a week. Content, baby, content.
  • Say yes to more things. A lot of times I will turn down an invitation somewhere because I get scared to try something new. No more of that! This year I will be saying yes to almost everything. I will be even saying yes to myself this year.
  •  Books; Next year I’m going to read or listen to a new book every month.
  • Next year is going to be all about concerts and festivals. I am a huge lover of music, so every concert that comes my way, I am going to make it a point to go. It’s all about the experience.
  • In 2019 I’m going to try my hardest to save as much money as I possibly can. My dream one day is to own my own home. So saving money would help out tremendously.
  • Learn to live a little. I’m constantly working, and if I’m not working, I’m sleeping. Next year I’m going to start taking more time for myself. It’s okay to have fun every once in a while.

5 Best Blogger Investments

I have been blogging for a little over three years now and I have put a little money in behind the scenes. If you are a new blogger, I wouldn’t recommend going out and dropping a lot of money, especially since you don’t know if blogging is something that you are going to continue doing. If you are serious about blogging, then these are a few things that I have found to make blogging easier. Enjoy!
  1. Ring Light- a ring light is perfect for the cute flat lays that you see all over Instagram.
  2. Theme- If you want your blog to have personality, purchase a theme that fits your aesthetic.
  3. Smart Phone- If you don’t already have a phone with a good camera, you need on in your life. 99.99% of the time, I am taking photos, writing blog posts, and taking notes on my iPhone 8 plus. Just saying, these devices are worth it in the blogging world.
  4. Custom Domain- This makes you look professional and makes it easier for your audience to find you!
  5. Grammarly- Although there is a free version, the premium version helps improve your vocabulary.
There you have it! My 5 investments as a blogger. Do you have any favorites? I need to do some more investing. I hope that this helped.
