I’m sure that you have had one of those days before when you wake up and everything goes wrong. As soon as you open those big, beautiful eyes, you can already tell that everything is going to shit. You woke up late, you burnt your forehead on your hair straightener, and now you can’t find your keys. I have one of those days about twice a week, trust me, you’re not alone!
Instead of letting that day continue to go horribly, here are some things that you can do to change the way your day is going to go.
The first thing that you can do is take a deep breath. Bring your thoughts to your attention and tell yourself that you are going to have an amazing day. Or cry….. Whatever helps. I’m just kidding, but stop and give yourself a minute to forget about all of those terrible events and think of something that makes you happy.
The next thing that you can do to change your day is to go somewhere that makes you happy. If you are at work, take a break and go get some coffee. If coffee isn’t your thing, go do something that is your thing. Grab a cupcake, go for a walk, take some selfies, whatever you need to do to make yourself feel a little better.
If those aren’t doing the trick, read your favorite quote. Read something that will put a smile on your face. If you don’t have a favorite quote, go to Pinterest, they have tons for you!
If you have tried all of the above and nothing seems to be working, call someone that you love. Just let it all pour out to them. If no one will answer, message me, I’ll pick up!
The most rewarding thing about running a blog is that I can write whatever I am the most passionate about. Do you know what that is for me? If you said, goals and positivity, then you would be right.
I can’t describe the feeling exactly, but I can give it a shot. Setting goals for me is like my boss just walked in, and told me that I have a month off of work. Paid. Yea, let that one sink in just a bit. I don’t know what I would do without setting goals, and holding myself responsible for reaching those achievements.
I know that I have done achievement posts in the past, but I have a good feeling about this one. The new year is almost here and I need to make sure that I am prepped for all of the amazing opportunities that I am going to give myself. So grab a cup of tea, shit is about to get real.
I am sure that you have heard this one thousand times before, but this year is going to count. I feel major changes coming and with these goals, they are going to come to life!

We have made it to the end of Fashion Week. So sad to see it go, but we are ending it on an adorable outfit from Suzanne Betro.
I am so in love with the boho feel of this top, I received so many compliments when I wore it! If you don’t already know, black is my signature color, it’s a great go to. So classy, comfy, and adorable. The detail on this shirt is everything, the crisscross on the back gives it a more feminine feel to it. Did I mention that this look is also super affordable?
These jeans are a little different from the others. These are bell bottom style with distressed areas. For sure a great statement piece. Especially now that winter is around the corner, it is the perfect time to pick up some cute jeans.
You can find all of the Suzanne Betro on Zulily.com. Hurry and go get your jeans from their new denim collection, you won’t regret it!
Which look was your favorite out of the three outfits? Let me know in the comments!
I would like to thank Suzanne Betro for sponsoring Fashion week this week.
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!
