Goals for June!

Sunday, May 31, 2015

It's always good to set goals for yourself. Goals keep you focused, organized, and they remind you of things you have to do. So here's a short and simple post of goals I will like to accomplish for the month of June!

Stay Productive: I am proud of myself. So far I've been really productive when it comes to blogging. I have been really consistent this year and I am feeling accomplished.

Continuing Blogging about what I enjoy: I feel like this has been a great blogging year for me. I really do feel conscious about what I blog. I want to write more recipe post, the lighting is not the best. I am definitely working on it though.

Make more blogging friends: The blogging community is really great, I don't feel like an outsider anymore (Something that I used to feel). I have made some really good friends from blogging, that's a positive outcome for me. I hope to continue making friends.

Do more DIYs: I love DIYs, their great and it's much more cheaper to make certain things like scrubs, makeup holders, ect...) than regular products. I have made a body scrub on my blog before here: Scrub. I want to start making more!

I want to make my own Makeup/Nail Polish line: This is going to be a work in progress for me, but I am up for the challenge. I have no idea where to start though.

Collaborate with other Bloggers: I've done collaborations before and I think it's great. You get to meet bloggers and create friendships. You also share interests you both may have. I would like to do more!

These are some of my goals for June, although they do make sense for all year long though! What are some of your goals you want to accomplish (monthly, weekly, or daily)?

Strawberry Bread Recipe


Here is another great breakfast recipe I found! In a previous post I talked about Banana muffins, but you will love this Strawberry Bread just as much. I have never tried this bread before, because I love Banana bread and nothing can top it. But after trying this, I like strawberry bread. I found this recipe on the same site as the Banana muffins. The recipe called for pecans, but I'm not a fan of it. You can definitely keep though. So if you want to try this out follow the recipe in this link: Strawberry Bread

I hope you try this recipe and let me know if you do!

There's Beauty in Everyone!


About a week I saw this gorgeous flower outside and I knew I had to capture it on camera. You can find the beauty in everyone and everything. In this society people have their own expectations of what beauty is. But in reality there is no true beauty. Times are changing and so are people. I believe everyone should be comfortable in their own skin. I know you're probably thinking, "easier said than done". Remember that beauty comes in all shapes, colors, and sizes. I know I am starting to feel comfortable in my own skin. I think it's because I am not in high school anymore. High school can be a toxic place for people and my self-esteem was not the best. But for a lot of people social media can be like high school. People get bullied a lot and sometimes they need that one person to help and encourage them. There are a lot of twitter chats, but I do not see one about beauty and I don't mean about makeup. Would you want to see a twitter chat about this?

I hope you enjoyed reading this! Here's a few posts I did on Beauty if you want to read them:

You Are Beautiful!

Banana Muffins Recipe!

Friday, May 29, 2015

If you ever need help with ideas for breakfast, don't worry the Internet has you covered. A while ago I wanted to fix Banana bread, but it takes a long time to cook. I wanted something quick and easy to fix, so I found a great Banana Muffin recipe. They were really good, so this morning I mad them again and decided to share them with you! All of the ingredients are down below for you to try them as well.

                                                                   
                                                               Here's the recipe!



Prep: 10 min
Cook: 25 min
Ready In: 35 min
 
 Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 large bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 melted butter
 
-I only used 2 bananas, because that is all I had. It did not make a difference at all. I also didn't have baking soda, but again it was noticeable. These are really good and they take no time make. I enjoyed these and I hope you do too. For more information on this recipe check it out here: Banana Muffins.
 
I hope you enjoyed reading and let me know if you tried this recipe!

I'm not a Feminist Expert but...

Thursday, May 28, 2015
Google Image

This is not a regular post, but it's about life and I do write lifestyle posts. I thought this post would be fitting for today. I've been wanting to write a post like this for a long time, but I didn't. I guess this was the right time to do so. I wouldn't call myself a feminist expert, but to see that sexist people still think it's ok to put women down are unbelievable. Your mom is a woman, grow up. This is something that has been going for years and it should stop. I mean really, this is the 21st century and women should not be put in a category by men. I mean everyone jokes around and has a right to their own opinion, but so do I. While on twitter I was reading that women soccer teams will be featured in the FIFA 16. I do not play soccer, but this is a big step. Women should not be made to feel like, all their good for is cooking and cleaning. I believe women are making a big impact on the world. Women work hard everyday, not just men. Not all guys are sexist, but the ones that are I wonder why. "Boys will be boys" should not be used anymore. Just because women are fighting for equal rights doesn't mean they hate guys. They just want to be recognized as something more, than just a cooker or a cleaner. Even though this is a rant, I do feel strongly about this issue. Women are human beings just like men and we shouldn't be made to feel less than that.

Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Cream

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

The Gold Bond skin therapy cream heals and nourishes dry, problem skin. It's non- greasy and absorbs through the skin fast. Infused with Aloe, this will definitely help solve any dryness your skin is having. The product says that it is hypoallergenic, I did not have any reaction to it. To be honest, whenever I see something that says hypoallergenic I automatically assume it's ok. But as a tip apply a little to the forearm and see what happens. During the warmer days I noticed my hands get dryer, so this is the perfect product to help. In between my fingers is where I am dry the most. It's not painful, but sometimes almost unbearable to deal with. The gold bond cream definitely helps to keep my skin moisturized and it really is not greasy at all. This leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft! I do recommend this product to anyone with dry/cracked skin. I got it at Walmart for less than $2. If you have any recommendations on other skin lotions that help with dryness, let me know.

I hope you enjoyed reading and if you have any questions leave a comment!

Blogger Interview #1: Jemma

Thursday, May 21, 2015
Every since I started blogging, I've met a lot of bloggers. There are so many wonderful blogs out, but with this big blogging community not a lot of people know some blogs exist. So I have decided to start a series on my blog called Blogger Interviews. I will be interviewing bloggers who inspire me, who are new to blogging, and just because I think this will be a fun experience!
So here's my first interview. I think this one is perfect to start off my series! Jemma blogs at dorkface.co.uk She is one of my favorite bloggers out here. Not only is she a great blogger, but she is a nice person as well. So keep reading, if you want to know a little more about her!

NYC Velvet eyeliners

Monday, May 18, 2015
 
I am a simple kind of girl when it comes to wearing makeup. I do not wear foundation, concealer, setting powder, or anything in that category. I do however wear eye shadows, when it comes to heavy makeup (don't worry I use an eye primer). But the only makeup you'll see me wearing on a daily basis is my eyeliner. A girl can never have too much of it! These colors I got from Walmart, cost about $2. As you can see these are very simple colors, but so pretty. These colors are Black Velvet in 951 and Black Wine in 952. I always get black eyeliner, because this is the color that runs out the fastest for me. The Black Wine eyeliner looks more like a maroon color to me, but it's still a pretty color. The NYC velvet eyeliners are a long- wearing formula, that is infused with Vitamins C & E. Both eyeliners are very creamy and smooth. The best part is it's very pigmented and applies very easily. Sometimes I have noticed with eyeliners, is the tip is sharp so I wear it down a little. But this I don't have to do that, which is another great thing about this. I talk a lot about eyeliners, but surprisingly I have not tried liquid eyeliner yet. For some reason I'm worried that a liquid eyeliner will come off easily. I know there's waterproof, but does that really work?
 
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post! If you wear or like the liquid ones, which brand do you recommend? What colors should I try next?

Nail Polish Haul

Wednesday, May 13, 2015


I love nail polish, it's like my obsession next to eyeliner of course. So a couple of weeks ago I was in Walmart and the first place I went to was the nail section. My regular nail polish choice NYC is definitely a favorite, their color are so pretty and long wearing. I decided to also try different brands, that I have never tried before. With some of these colors I went a little out of my comfort zone. So far I have tried all of the colors except for "NYC Times Square Tangerine Crème" and "Sally Hansen Mighty Mango".
  
1. NYC: Hamptons Peach- One of the prettiest colors and it's perfect for springtime and summer. It's like a mix between pink and orange. The best part about this polish is that it dries quickly, within 5 minutes!

2. NYC: Burnt Orange- I did not think that I would like this color, but after applying this color it started to grow on me. This color is great for the Summer!

3. NYC: Times Square Tangerine Crème- I have not tried this color yet, it's a little out of my comfort zone because it's very bright, but I can't wait to try it out.

4. Sally: Hansen Mighty Mango- This is another color I have not tried yet, but it's like a coral pink/orange color. It's really pretty and hopefully I will like it.

5. NYC: Columbus Circle Crimson- This a gorgeous red that really like wearing. A few years ago I did not care for red polishes at all. But it become a trend and I wanted to try it out and now I it's one of my favorites!

6. NYC: NY Blues- After watching Nicole Guerriero's Favorites video (either January or February) I was on the search to find the nail polish she was wearing. It was a pretty blue. While searching I stumbled upon this color. I knew it was lighter then what I wanted, but I decided to try it. It's an ok color, maybe if I keep wearing it, it will start to grow on me.

7. Sally Hansen: Pacific Blue- This is the only polish I go from CVS, the others were from Walmart. This was very similar to the color Nicole Guerriero was wearing in her video. At least I thought it was. After purchasing this polish, I went home and looked it up on YouTube. That was a big mistake, because I was left a little unhappy. This nail polish sparked a lot of controversy last year, because it was a new formula of the original Pacific Blue. I immediately knew I made a mistake because I fell in love with the original, not realizing that it didn't exist anymore. This color is pretty in the bottle. But when I opened it, it looked very watery and it took more then two coats to get it to the exact color of the polish. I was pretty upset. If you were clueless about this polish like me, look up this color on YouTube and you will be very interested in the responses to this.

8. Maybelline: Midnight Blue- I am in love with this color. I have never tried a Maybelline polish, but I am so glad I did. This is a gorgeous color, it's a dark blue. When I first saw this polish I thought it was, like a plum purple but it's blue.

I hope you enjoyed reading this! Are there any polishes you like or thought you liked, let me know?

Que Bella Beauty Masks Review

Monday, May 11, 2015
I love having a spa day at home, who doesn't? So about 2 weeks on twitter Que Bella Beauty tweeted out asking bloggers if they were interested in trying out their masks. I was interested in this opportunity. I really enjoy masks, their very refreshing, so they sent me some of their masks to try out and review. When I received them, over the course of a few days I spent trying them and writing what I thought about them. So keep reading to see what I thought!
 


 
Facial Exfoliator (Cherry & Apricot exfoliating cleanser)
For a radiant, clear complexion this cleanser helps the skin to remove makeup. This also cleanses the face to remove dead skin cells and impurities, to reveal fresh glowing skin. This is by far my favorite! I love it. First, the smell is great and the combination of Cherry and Apricot is incredible. This looked and felt like a liquid scrub. It was very easy to apply to my face and in the end I was feeling refreshed and moisturized.
 
Pore Minimizing (T-zone or Full facial mask)
For a deeply cleansed feeling, can be used as a full facial for targeted T-zone treatment. Enriched with Camphor extracts, the masks thoroughly cleanses pores while the Iris extract, Vitamin A, Palmitate, and Zinc salt soothes the skin. This mask reminded me of Noxzema. Everything from the smell to how it looks. I use to it and it was effective, so I had a feeling this would be too. It also smelled a little minty. It took me a little while to apply. When applying, I felt a tingle. I guess it was settling into my skin (activating). Overall this mask helped my pores, which is a problem I have.
 
Skin Brightening (Papaya peel-off mask)
To achieve a bright and radiant complexion, refresh and revitalize the skin with this peel off mask. Enriched with natural Papaya extract, the mask helps exfoliate the Hops actives help even the skin tone. This will achieve luminous and glowing skin. The papaya peel off mask smells really good. This was my second favorite. The color was orange and it had a thick consistency, almost like oil. It was a little sticky on my hands while applying to my face. But that was ok, because it washed right off. The fun part was peeling it off of my face, when it dried. I thought it was cool to see the liquid of the mask dry, to become a peel off.
Intensive Foot Mask (Enriched with Apple & Shea Butter)
This intense treatment helps to smooth and soften dry cracked heels and feet. Enriched with Apple and Shea Butter, this sock style foot mask penetrates the skin quickly and deeply. This will protect and moisturize the skin. After using this once, you will notice improvement in skin tone and texture. The foot mask was hard to open, because I was unsure how to. It took me about two minutes to figure it out. The foot mask overall was nice and my feet was left feeling soft and moisturized. The only thing I didn't like was that the my heels were still a little dry.
 
Moisturizing Hand Mask (Enriched with Oatmeal & Shea Butter)
A hydrating treatment that nourishes and restores suppleness to the hands. Enriched with Oatmeal and Shea Butter, this glove style hand mask penetrates skin quickly and deeply. This will protect and moisturize the skin. Only after one use you will notice an improved skin tone and texture. The hand mask was a lot easier to open, because I knew what to do from opening the foot mask. My hands looked refreshed and they felt hydrated. Most importantly they felt so smooth and soft. As soon as I put my hand in there I immediately felt my hands being moisturized. I really like this hand mask.
 
I really enjoyed these masks and I will definitely purchase them myself! I hope you enjoyed reading and for more information on the different masks Que Bella Beauty have click here: Que Bella Beauty

Cocoa Butter Stick

Friday, May 8, 2015

The Cocoa Butter Stick is Pure Cocoa Butter infused with Vitamin E that moisturizes rough, ashy areas. Great to use for marks, blemishes and scars. This smoothes on easily to the skin. I think is a good product to use. It applies to the skin very well and most important it absorbs into the skin pretty quickly. A little goes a long way. The first time I used this I put to much, which made it take a little longer to absorb. I tend to experience dry skin sometimes so this very helpful. This is a very versatile product you can use for blemishes, dry skin, and marks. Right now I am using it for blemishes and marks left from bumps. It's very important for our skin to stay moisturized and hydrated, not just for the winter months but also the warmer months to. I do not really experience a lot of dry skin, expect for in between my fingers and towards my elbows. I have used cocoa butter in the past and it was helpful but I wasn't really consistent with it. But while in Walmart I saw it for less than $2, so I knew I had to try it. The Cocoa butter stick has Vitamin E in it. As I have mentioned in other posts of mine this Vitamin is one of the essentials for making skin look healthy and refreshed. So I definitely recommend this product and you do not have to use it for one thing, it is used for multiple reasons which is great.
 
I hope you enjoyed reading! Have you tried this product before, or any other Cocoa Butter product?

April Favorites!

Thursday, May 7, 2015
 
This is my first Monthly favorites post and I am excited to share what I've been loving. This is also a collaboration post I am doing with fellow blogger Chantel from Simply Gorgeous! She has a great blog and you should check her post out here: April Favorites. I only have a few favorites that I use regularly but these are worth it.

Vaseline: Total Moisture- I have mentioned the Vaseline Total Moisture and this is truly my all time favorite. I use it all the time and it keeps my skin feeling soft and refreshing. The best part is that it absorbs into my skin easily and does not leave a greasy feeling. If you want to know more, checkout my post on it here: Vaseline.

Calgon: Take me body cream- If I am not using my Vaseline lotion, it's because I am using my Calgon body cream. I like to use this on my face a lot because the lotion keeps it looking moisturized and most importantly hydrated. If you want to know more here's a previous post: Calgon: Take me body cream.

BH cosmetics: Eyebrow tweezers- I like fixing my eyebrows myself, only because I feel like money is saved and I can fix them the way I want to. One of the best things about these tweezers is that there is a spiral grain holder on the sides of the tweezer. This is helpful, because I can control the tweezers without it slipping through my fingers. Another great thing is the light that's attached, this will also help me see better. I also I a post if you want to know more about this click here: Eyebrow Tweezers

Secret Deodorant- I have always used secret deodorant, there is really no specific reason why. I guess because the brand is has good products. This is 48 hour odor protection. Which means that it will last a long time. This is perfect to use especially with the warmer months coming. We all have experienced hotness under the arms, so this deodorant will ensure you protected! Another great thing about this product is that it absorbs quickly on the armpit, which no one will see deodorant stains.

Body Fantasies: Fragrance body spray- This body spray is the best you spell good all day. If you like cotton candy as much as I do, you will really love this spray. This body spray is so refreshing and it makes me feel like I'm in a tropical forest.

                                           I hope you enjoyed reading about my favorites!




Adovia Purifying Dead Sea Mud Mask

Wednesday, May 6, 2015
 
About a week ago, I was sent the Adovia Purifying Mud Mask. I have never tried a mud mask before. The only time I've seen people wear mud masks was in the movies. To be honest I wasn't sure about how I would feel, mainly because of the word mud. But I was really excited to try it out, because it was something new.
 
The Adovia Purifying Mud Mask is the most effective and natural acne treatment. Pulls out toxins and unclogs pores, so skin can be rejuvenated naturally. Also pulls out excess oil while pulling in needed essential minerals, from the dead sea. The dead sea mud pulls out the toxins and pore clogging particle, while infusing skin with much needed minerals. Infused with over 26 minerals essential for the skin to be healthy. This 100% natural, paraben free, no added fragrance or color. Improves your complexion by reducing blackheads, acne blemishes, and the appearance of acne. Most importantly this is Great to use for all skin types. The Adovia Purifying Mud Mask supplies nutrients to maintain elasticity and a soft, even texture to the skin. Another good thing is it helps with oily skin as well as acne prone skin, psoriasis, and eczema. Aloe Vera and Vitamin C is included, which is great for the skin. The Aloe Vera is important so the skin will not be over dried, but gets natural levels of moisture. The Vitamin C is for improving the overall skin complexion and smoothness of the skin.
 
When I first opened the product, it was a little hard to squeeze out of the bottle. It looked liked is was a thick consistency and hard to use, but that's not the case. It was very easy to apply to the face. When you rub the mask on, it is really smooth and creamy. After using this the first time and rinsed my face, I noticed my face was red around my nose and my cheeks. I believe my face was red because I rinsed it off, with my face rag. So the other times I used my hands to rinse off, and this time my face was not really red. So I do not recommend using a rag, because it will give you a false impression that this product irritates your skin. My skin felt really smooth after using this, which is what we all want our face to feel like. You can use this once a week or whenever you need it. You're suppose to leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes or until it dries on your face. I left it on my face for about 10 to 15 minutes. I have only used this a few times, so I have not seen a big change in blemishes. Although my pores seemed to have reduced which is one of my main problems. That's how blackheads are created, when your pores are clogged. As far my pores I can see a change. With continued use I will definitely see a bigger change, but I am glad with the small changes I've experienced so far.

Curly Hair Problems/Tips

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

If you're a curly girl like me you can cry with me at this post, if you're not well then you'll probably laugh at our pain. I decided to write this post, because I thought it would be fun to see what I actually go through with my hair. The good thing about this, is that I am not alone when it comes to the love/hate relationship curly haired girls experience with their hair. Whether you have tight curls, loose curls, or wavy curls you go through at one or two things on my list.
 
Problems
-Frizz: This is one of the number one problems we face. Because of this I like to have a hat in my pocketbook, to safe myself the embarrassment. I feel like no matter what I do my hair stays frizzy. I could put on my shirt and all of a sudden half of my hair gets frizzy.
 
-Weather: Although the weather sometimes coincides with frizzy hair, it's in a category all by itself. If it's hot or humid outside my hair immediately knows. As soon as I step outside, in a matter of minutes I can feel my hair frizzing up.
 
-Tangle: Another know problem is tangled hair. It's so easy for it to get tangled and knotted up, but it's so hard to detangle it. I feel like it takes hours and hours to detangle and in the end you're left feeling exhausted and worn out.
 
-Can't comb/brush your hair: If you comb or brush your hair will most likely come out. This is because curly hair is more prone to breakage when the hair is dry.
 
-Small amounts come out while showering: Although curly hair is prone to breakage when dry, it can also be that way when wet. I've heard that it's normal for a small amount of hair to come out. Is that true?
 
Tips
-Make sure your hair is moisturized. Not only will this reduce frizz, but it will also keep hair from breaking and being dry/ brittle.
-Use a wide tooth comb while washing your hair. If you have a comb specifically for detangling that will be fine too. These will help wet hair from breaking or combing out.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes


Neutrogena makeup remover products are the only one I have used. A few times I've tried other makeup removers, but they are not as good as my Neutrogena oil-free eye makeup remover. If you want to read more about click here: Neutrogena eye makeup remover. This was a good product, but it is just for eye makeup. I didn't mind it, only because I wore eye makeup and no other kind. But a couple of weeks I saw these cleansing towelettes and I knew I wanted to try them. These clothes can be used on the full face.
 
The Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes are soft cloths that do not irritate the skin. They gently and effectively dissolve all traces of makeup, dirt, oil, and even waterproof mascara. Most importantly these cloths leave your skin feeling thoroughly clean with no heavy residue left. So there is no need to rinse after wiping the face. The cleansing cloths are gentle enough to use around sensitive eye area. So people who experience sensitivity around the eyes you can still use these. Another important thing is these cloths are alcohol free, allergy tested, and dermatologist tested. These cloths are very freshening and this is definitely a good makeup remover product to use.

Nutra Nails: Flex-Shield Nail Hardener

Saturday, May 2, 2015
 
When going to the nail salon most of us go for a manicure or tips. For me most of the time it's for tips, but after a while I get really tired of them. When the time comes for me to take them off, it becomes a difficult challenge. So whenever I want to go and get them done professionally I usually let my own nails grow. Then when it's time for me to go I just ask them to put acrylic on them instead of tips and the acrylic. The acrylic is like a protective shield for your nails. But after a while I become tired of it, but this time the process was much easier to take them off. If you're like me, you want tips when you don't have them and when you do, you want them off. Am I making sense? So for the past month, I decided to solve my nail problems completely. I will grow my nails and take care of them. I also decided to invest in a nail hardener, because it seemed like every time I bumped into something really hard they would break. That's when I found and brought a nail hardener from Walmart!




The Nutra Nail: Flex Shield Nail Hardener helps soft, thin, and weak nails that are prone to   breaking, tearing, cracking, or peel easily. This product coats the with a hard/flexible shield to make the nails strong and help prevent weak unmanageable nails. This will reduce chipping and make it last longer. I have been using this nail hardener for a while now and I am impressed with it. It works really well and my nail polish does not chip. If you're using this by itself then you need to apply two coats. If using this with a polish, apply this as a base coat and a top coat. For the first couple of times, I used this as both a base and top coat. It definitely works great as a base coat, it makes my nails stronger and my nail polish does not chip after a few days. But the downside to this is using it as a top coat. It takes a long time to try and even after about 15 minutes it's still not completely dry. Even my non-quick dry polishes get the job done in less than 15 minutes. So I tried using one of my top coats on top of that to make it dry quicker. It did dry much faster, but in the end my nail polish had those bubbles that does not look appealing. So if you do get this, I recommend only using it as a base coat and find another top coat. But over all it has helped my nails not chip and my nails to not break! I am so glad I have this and I use it all the time. It cost a little less then $4, but sometimes prices vary. I think it is worth the buy. This has helped my nails.
