What I got for Christmas!

Back to work today after a much needed Christmas break! Just like everyone else in the world I was over it and couldn't wait to clock out before I even clocked in! It was a very easy day but still it was work. Any way today I had breakfast at Starbuck's with a co-worker, went to the mall to pick up a few things, ate lunch at Chick Fil A with KoJo and back home to watch movies and be lazy. What did you do today?
Here's a few things I got from Santa this year...
1. 'Nude' by Rihanna (my absolute favorite parfume)
2. E.L.F brush cleaner
3. 'Shea Sugar Scrub' by Tree Hut
4. E.L.F small stipple brush
Have you tried any of these products?
What did you get for Christmas?!

The Mixing of Prints

 Merry Christmas everyone!

I'm just sitting here watching the Christmas Day Parade, listening to Andra Day's album, and blogging obvs. I woke up around 7:30 a.m to open my gifts at my mom's place then we drove over to my house so she could open hers. I can't wait until basketball comes on later --sports during the Holidays are the BEST! Mom's in the kitchen cooking food while I'm getting my Amy Winehouse fix through the breath of fresh air that is Ms. Andra Day.

Here's a look at my Outfit of The Day (O.O.T.D)..


Mixing prints is one of my favorite go to's in fashion. I do believe there's a right and wrong way to mix prints. In my opinion the key is to go with prints that compliment one another. Tan and burgundy, green and tan, pink and burgundy, etc.

I hope you all are having the best Christmas ever! Put all your worries aside and enjoy this day and your loved ones. Have a blessed one guys.

Love, Londen

Motivation | Work Hard

What I've learned after participating in Vlogmas while running a blog, working, and balancing my personal life is this is hard as .... 

There's seriously not enough hours in the day. Working nonstop this week (because of Christmas). Trying to make sure I get enough rest after work and reminding myself after you post on your blog start coming up with new content! This has been a struggle for me. BUT the Londen Sloan show MUST and I mean MUST go on!

If it's hard than you must be doing something right. "If it's easy I don't want it."

Being a blogger will force you to work hard and put in time. It will force you into a business woman/man and as difficult as it is I love it! I've become disciplined and more creative. I'm slowly but surely becoming the woman I'm supposed to be. I'm still learning and enjoying every step!

Think of something you want to accomplish before the end of the year. Let's end 2015 with a bang!

Shout out to all the bloggers out there, you are all an inspiration. Oh and a big shout out to Doni Brown!

Love, Londen

To: Me From: Me

All I do is save, save, save I never really buy myself anything. So I decided to pick out a few gifts for myself while Christmas shopping. Oh and speaking of shopping I'm nowhere near done! I plan on finishing up this Friday --wish me luck! I honestly feel so rushed this year. Christmas is literally around the corner! Next year I'm going to start shopping early, October early! If that doesn't give me enough time then I don't know what will?! Ok back to the gift I bought myself....

The Targus Grypton Pro XL Flexible Tripod. So Korey and I were on our way to the mall on a Sunday around 9 a.m (totally forgetting it was Sunday). So we took a little detour to Target because the mall wasn't open. I wanted to go to electronics to pick out my next camera (Vlogging camera) and this crazy looking Tripod caught my eye. It was only about 30 dollars and it hasn't disappointed yet! It wraps around poles, easy for on the go and it's sturdy - - holds my Canon Rebel T3 with no problem.

What Christmas gifts have you bought for yourself? Have you opened them?!

New In

First of all salute to those running a blog and a YouTube channel(s)! So I decided since I love watching Vlogmas on YouTube why not participate in my own this year?! Now I don't post everyday as most do, I upload every three or four days. I'll be the first to admit I just don't have that much fun activities going on in my life lol! As much as it's a lot of work editing footage it is also fun! It sort of hit me yesterday that I'm not balancing my Blog and my YouTube channel. On here I try to make sure I post every three days and it's been five since my last post...yeah major issue, major issue!

Sorry guys!

So just like the rest of the world I've been doing some Christmas shopping and bought things that I didn't necessarily need but shrugged it off and threw it in the basket. I've been to Wal-Mart more than I should lately browsing every isle and looking at all the Christmas decorations! Here's a few thing's I picked up along the way....

1) Makeup Remover: Garnier Micellar Cleaning Water (removes makeup + cleanses + soothes -no rinsing)

2) Magazine - 'Instyle': the gift guide issue

3) Juice: Organic Mamma Chia Strawberry Lemonade (chia vitality beverage)

Have you tried this makeup remover? How about this natural strawberry lemonade?!

Here's my O.O.T.D...
