Revlon In 'Spanish Moss'

Hey dolls! Thought I'd post to make up for not posting yesterday (because I had no material and didn't want to post any old thing) and before I watch 'The Killing' on Netflix with a side of Chinese food. If you haven't watched this Netflix original you're missing out!!!! Any who.. so I recently picked up a few things from the dollar store and ran across some nail polish that just happened to be my favorite... Revlon! So I just couldn't leave without it. I'm currently wearing it and I'm in love.... 

Oh am I the only one who cleans up unwanted polish with a concealer brush (by ELF) ?! 

What a great shade ('Spanish Moss') and a great find!! 

What shade are you rocking?!

8 Tips to Living A Balanced Life

Trying to live a balanced life I'm sure is on everyone's to do list. Easier said than done right?! With work and just life in general! Well here's a few things I do to feel balanced...

1) Now I don't go to church as much as I should but I do spend time with God. I'm a strong believer in getting your life right with and through God and EVERYTHING else will fall in place. Keep Him first loves you won't regret it! 

2) Exercise is a big part of my life (I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to workout more). 30 minutes to an hour in the gym everyday is a great start.

3) Writing in my journal. Whether it's jotting the days adventure, writing goals, or writing a book. I think everyone should go back to an actual pen and pad. No more tablets! It gives a sense of peace when you actually write on paper... at least for me it does. 

4) Doing what I love -which is taking pictures for my blog. Do whatever makes you feel happy and will benefit you in the long run. 

5) Oh how I love me some tea! Not only is it delicious but its good for you. I'm currently addicted to Peppermint Tea (scroll through my posts to see the benefits of peppermint tea). 

6) Eating healthy is a must to go along with fitness as I am working on burning fat in certain areas. My go to fish is Salmon...with a side of rice of course. 

7) Water to stay hydrated and just a great essential to help you feel good. Add cucumbers for that extra kick! Who likes plain old boring water anyway?!

8) And last but not least hanging out with friends catching up on life.


What do you do to keep a balanced life?!

Foundation OVER Eyeshadow

Am I the only one who prefers foundation over eyeshadow. I tried and tried my hardest with eyeshadow but I just can't. When it comes to make-up it must look natural anything else just won't do! There's people out there who can make their shadow look natural like the QUEEN herself (aaliyahjay) but I am not one of those people. Maybe that's why I love the foundation for eyeshadow idea?! 

I didn't get this idea from anyone I was just extremely lazy one day and put foundation all over my face including my eyes. Put mascara and lipstick on and walked out the door! And they say we shouldn't be lazy...

The Little Wooden Box

Took a little trip to my favorite store Target to pick up a few things for my house and saw this cool little wooden box sitting on the clearance shelf and had to have it. It holds my favorite rings...

Lotion, lotion, and more lotion!

Some facial cleansers leave my skin extremely dry. Here's a few lotions I live by..

-Nivea Soft (refreshingly light moisturizing creme) 
-Nivea Creme (helps skin stay soft and supple) 
-Aveeno (daily moisturizing lotion that moisturizes for 24 hours *fragrance free*) 

Nivea Soft is the best! What lotion do you use to relieve dry skin?!

I've been pretty dedicated to fitness for a few months now and I'm proud of myself. I normally workout for about a month and then stop. I'm sure we've all had that problem. I also would workout for a particular reason.... summer, to fit into something, etc. Now I'm doing this simply for ME. Just because. My mommy is my fitness partner and I just admire her dedication! I'm currently trying to do the meal prep thing its sort of hard/easy at the same time. For lunch I eat a salad, baked fish/chicken for dinner and breakfast is something I don't have down yet lol! Working on it though. 

I love tennis so burning fat on the court is a piece of ...(don't say cake) cucumber lol! 

What's your favorite fitness routine?!

Brunch At Mimi's Cafe

Went to brunch with Kojo yesterday at Mimi's Cafe which was sort of a last minute. I couldn't decided what I wanted to eat I knew I wanted pancakes but couldn't decide where to go?! He's never had Mimi's before so this was his first and it made a good and lasting impression! (But no surprise there I always pick the best restaurants!)

The things I have to deal with...

Currently | Interstellar

At the moment I'm laying on the floor (on top of my Yoga mat -OCD) watching 'Interstellar' eating popcorn and candy with a side of white wine. I went to the Redbox outside of Walmart with my mom earlier to pick up a couple movies. She went with Big Hero 6 lol my big kid. I'm in the middle of the movie and it's sort of slow but hopefully it'll pick up! Think I'll get in bed and finish the rest. 

A little background on the film...

Science fiction film about a crew of astronauts who travel through a wormhole in search of a new home for humanity. Starring Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey.

Rimmel London

I am currently wearing Rimmel London in "Out Of The Blue". It dries super fast (60 seconds) and this shade is just perfect for summer. I'm picky when it comes to polishes. I can't deal with applying nail polish and it chips the next day *screams*!!! So we'll see how Rimmel does. What shade are you currently rocking?

Currently Reading

I'm trying my best to live a balanced life so along with spending time with God, blogging, working, and simply enjoying life I read. I usually go for a Stephen King book but decided to change it up and read Maya Angelou's 'I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings'. I'm only on chapter 3 and I love it. Am I the only one who loves going to the library?! I like to physically have a book I just can't get in to books on Kindle. What book are you currently reading?!

One of my favorite outfits! Every now and then I like to mix prints currently I'm loving solid colors from head to toe (i.e burgundy shirt/pants). Whenever you're feeling edgy summer is the perfect time to step out of the box. I decided to pair a polka dot button down that I purchased at the Goodwill with my baggy skinny sweats (the name I gave them) lol that are from Forever 21 with my vans. 

What's fashion without doing the most a.k.a mixing prints. ;-)

Saucony Trainers | Summer Foot Wear

I posted this beauts on Instagram last year and recently started wearing them again and remembered why I just had to have them. They're super comfy and easy to style with the very present yet toned down colors. These will more than likely be my go to trainers this summer. I want to try to do more with them this year -jeans, shorts, skirt, the list goes on! No socks needed with these babies... I think it would take away the look of the shoes (low profile). Have to make sure I don't forget to sprinkle the baby powder. Stinky feet, not chic! Lol! 

P.S I couldn't stand these shoes in high school! Love them now...decided to bring 'em back...

So what's your go to shoe this summer?!!
