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.
Cheers to the mom out there kicking ass all by herself, high five to the passion driven entrepreneur, and a big hug to the soon to be a Torrid fashion model. I hope that at least one of these #BossBabe tips helped or inspired you in some way! I would love to hear any of the tips that you have. I can always use them!
Oh my goodness! I can’t tell you how excited I was when I found this tag! This is so perfect and so fitting for me. For those of you that don’t know, I am a huge Disney fan. I love all things Disney, I take all of the Disney quizzes on Facebook, the whole shebang! My mind is still blown that I came across this tag on twitter! I love it!

December is here, can you believe it?? This month is the perfect time to spend time with family. I love quality time, with work and life getting into the way, quality time doesn’t happen as often as it should. Hello everyone! Today my sister, my husband and I have teamed up to bring you this fun little shoot. A little fall fashion inspiration for you. Even though it is December, it’s still toasty in California. We got all dolled up and went out and just went with it. We had so much fun taking these pictures! We hope that you enjoy them.
I would like to point out the fact that my husband took these photos. If you want to ask someone to take your photos for you, but not sure what they will say, just ask. They may surprise you, I never thought that he would even consider it. Not only did he take my pictures, but he slayyyedddd these photos. DONE!
Our hats are from Charlotte Russe. I love this photo, Sierra is so silly. Enjoy your sister if you have one. They may annoy the hell out of you, but they are your backbone. She makes me laugh and can make me cry at the same time. I can honestly say that she is my best friend. I couldn’t imagine a life without her.
My top is from Torrid, this is seriously one of my favorite shirts. It’s so comfortable and easy to move in. I love my light washed denim shirt!Sierra’s top is a cute flow blouse from Forever 21. If you have ever shopped at Forever 21, then you know that it is very affordable. If you haven’t made your way there yet, then you should. There is a wide selection of styles and price ranges. I couldn’t find the shirt on the site, but you should still go take a look!
Remember to enjoy life, smile and relax. Don’t stress over something that isn’t worth it. I learned that the hard way. Besides, it’s way more fun to be worry free.
I would like to thank my baby sister for being featured in my post, and my husband for taking my photos. I love you both from the bottom of my heart.
Where in the world did November go?? Seriously, I feel like we were just celebrating the beginning of 2016!
This month has brought a lot of things to my attention and a lot of beauty products into my life. I have discovered some great things about myself and will be forever thankful for this month. I would like to take a second, to thank you for supporting me throughout my blogging journey. I have found something that I love and you are helping me keep this passion alive. By reading, liking, commenting, and sharing my posts, you are supporting me in more ways than you will ever know. Now…. let’s stop with all of that mushy mushy and get on to the good stuff!Aside from you being my number one favorite, this setting spray has changed my life! I like to spritz some of this on before AND after I apply my makeup. Guess what…my makeup stays in place all day.
I have always loved this foundation, I just forget to mention it in my favorites. I have been using this non-stop. I not only love the way that this sits on my skin, but I love the color range! Some brands have limited options when it comes to foundation, but not Loreal!
I discovered this concealer a while back, but I recently fell in love with it all over again. It gives major coverage under the eyes. This concealer is on the thicker side, so if you don’t like that, stay far away. Brows cannot be on fleek, if I am not rocking the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade. Ok, this is a game changer when it comes to highlight. It looks pink in the packaging, but when applied to the skin, it turns gold…..I know, badass right?!
Popping a little phloof onto the inner corners of my eyes, has been a must! Adding a little something extra for the month of November. All of the Kylie Lip Kits that I own, have been on constant rotation. I love these liquid lipsticks like no other! I own quite a few, but not nearly enough. (My husband would disagree). I have especially been loving Mary Jo K and Leo. I am not entirely sure why I didn’t discover Charlotte Russe boots sooner. I love the way they fit me, they are so comfortable to walk in, and they are super adorable!With these cold November days, I have been drinking more and more hot drinks. We just recently purchased a Keurig, I don’t know why we didn’t purchase it sooner. I love the damn thing!! I have been alternating between, Swiss Miss Hot Coco and Dunkin Donuts Original Blend. AMAZZIINNGGG.
With that being said, my Keurig made it in my favorites! Along with my Gold Canyon candle in Sugar Cookie. Isn’t it so beautiful?
Favorite movies of the month are:
- PITCH PERFECT 2
- KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE
- BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
- I have been loving my day planner! Something about writing down my goals and planning out my day, just puts me in a better mood and helps me stay organized. I really want an Erin Condren Life Planner for Christmas. Hopefully Brian reads this.
- My hair straightener. I recently had bangs cut and have been straightening them everyday.
And you have reached the end of this post! Finally.. I know. Let me know if any of there were your November Favs!
P.s Stay Beautiful.
I love to collaborate! Make sure to follow me on Instagram! I will notify there when my next post will be coming!
