I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve put myself together so I started again yesterday, continued today and finally posting a selfie of myself. I am getting super shy when I have to post pictures of myself and I am so jealous on the girls who do it with so much confidence .
They know they’re beautiful , they know they look hot and they want to share it with the world!
How awesome !
I got carried away with mom life and forgot about all the makeup sitting and waiting for me on the bathroom counter, not to say what I love most about putting on make up is that to me is a form of creative art that relaxes me and makes feel good.
Well today I had a burst of confidence and I felt pretty and I wanted to share it! 😉
Do me a favor and post a picture of your beautiful self wherever you want and even here in the comments section!
Let’s make it like a #girlconfidencemovement ! 😀 (Instagram @emygmueller )
Hello and Happy Easter for those of you who celebrate today or who celebrate Easter in general! 🙂
I am writing this article because I finally reached that point where I can say I can stick with certain products after spending so much money on so many things I discovered I didn’t like or just didn’t work for me.
I was getting so frustrated when I would buy something , get really excited for it and then didn’t reached my level of expectations. I would have it for a while in my drawers just taking space and reminding me on money thrown away.
I feel that this year I want to focus on finding the right products that I can stick with for a long time and don’t waste my money on products I will never use. I bet this happened to many of you. I will share with you some of the products I already settled with and found that they are between the best out there on the market. Remember that sometimes is only about the brand and you will find awesome products that don’t cost that much.
Here comes my list! 🙂
-Infallible from L’Oreal – mate look and super persistent.Nice coverage. Always got compliments on it and super price.
-Clinique- Even Better – I got a sample of this and indeed in gives you a perfect skin complexion. It’s very nice and good with your skin.
Makeup remover :
- Take the day off from Clinique is awesome. You can erase heavy eye makeup very fast.
- POND’S makeup remover wipes – work awesome when it comes to lifting up makeup.
- Infallible from L’Oreal – I will buy all the colors. It stays put on the lips, good price, nice colors and no hustle. Kiss, eat, drink , the lipstick still there.
- Paul Mitchel – Awapuhi Rich Shampoo and The Detangler Conditioner – perfect for me and I’m using it for a while.
- Moisture surge and Dramatically Different from Clinique.
Body Moisturizer :
- Wet Skin Moisturizer from Jergens.
This is my list for products I settled for finally. When it comes to blush and eye shadow is hard to settle because I love the different textures and colors. But the products in the list above I found it as the best and also good price. 🙂
Did you settled for one product in particular or thinking about it? 🙂
Hi and Happy Monday!
I recently found out about the Konmari method or how I would like to define it ” decluttering with purpose.” I had no idea what this was until my friend Elena mentioned it to me by telling me that she is “konmari” her house. I was like: you’re doing what?! Then, she explained.
It is an entire process which makes decluttering fun and purposeful and it’s founder is Marie Kondo. Fortunately I started doing it before I even knew what it was. I am a keeper of all kind of unimportant things and so on and to be honest, the one who actually open my eyes about my clutter was my husband so slowly I got in the mood for organizing and realized how good it makes me feel.
Anyway, one of the things you should guide yourself about keeping or not something you own is , according to Marie Kondo, if it sparks joy. Speaking for myself , everything I own, I bought because it sparked joy so this is not a good point for me but if it sat there and I didn’t use it for a while, then I throw it away. I just have to be in the mood to do Konmari.
Now, let’s go to a more amusing part which is my advice for you about when not to Konmari. ;))
If you find yourself on PMS, hungry, after a breakup or it’s just Monday…don’t konmari as you might feel like you don’t like anything , be in a bad mood and throw away nice stuff. 😀
Now, if you do choose to Konmari…take your time. Have a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, a glass of wine even, look around the house to have a general idea , relax, smile and get down to business. 😉
Have yourself a happy konmari! 😉
Sometimes I think being a woman is such a burden as we are so interested in so many not really important things and we pay lots of time and money on it but at the end of the day I sit there and get honest to myself. I know that all that make up, shoes, clothes, changing my hair is not the most important thing in the world but I love it. I love dressing up, I love putting on make up, I love changing my hair often and I truly love buying perfume and shoes. The situation has it that I stay in the house more now and I am busy lately with studying and working on some projects for my future career so I am all day without make up, wearing only my sport clothes and so on, which is not actually me. Then, when I am going out and put myself together, a nice make up, arranging my hair, putting on a nice outfit and my favorite perfume, I look in the mirror and I see myself shining . Why I am not doing this everyday? When did I stop doing this? I ask myself. It’s like I am rediscovering myself . I love to look put together all the time. At my previous job, my colleagues were asking how early do I get up to look like this in the morning. I would get up 1hr or sometimes 1hr 1/2 earlier . ( Work started at 9 a.m.so it was not that early, around 7 a.m. )
I was excited thinking what will I wear and how I will do my make up this time as it will never look the same . I like looking “new” all the time. They say that going out without make up is a sign of confidence and I did it many times but for me putting on make up and do all those beauty stuff is an act of creativity and with the risk of sounding shallow it does make me feel better about myself. At the end of the day I am just a typical woman and I love the things that come with it. 🙂
Happy 1st day of Spring everybody! 🙂
I enjoy my coffee in a big colorful mug as it somehow tastes better and it takes longer to savor it. A sip at a time while I am reading something, writing on my blog, thinking about my dreams or enjoying the nature. It’s like a big cup of coffee makes the morning seem longer and happier. 🙂
Enjoy your day and your coffee! 🙂
