Un-blahing The Blah Days

Hi Beauts !

So we all have those day when we are extra hard on ourselves and our self esteem is lower than low. When i have days like that, there are certain things that i like to do to feel better. Sometimes the smallest things can have the biggest impact.

1. Mani/Pedi
Sometimes when im having a bad day, painting my nails makes me feel so much better, i feel more put together. You can make it a treat to yourself, if you want by going to a salon to get them done. You'll leave feeling good and polished !

2. Apply Makeup/ Do your Makeup Differently
Sometimes just a little bit of mascara and lip gloss and you look amazing. Sometimes the least the better. If you apply makeup on a regular base, why not trying something new ? You can apply a different color eyeshadow or maybe a colorful eyeliner on your waterline that will make your eyes pop !

3. Dress Yourself
Even if you don't have any plans to go out or do anything, pick a cute, yet comfy outfit. Sometime just staying in sweats can just keep you in that low feeling. Aim for something with pops of color, now don't dress like a rainbow, but cute and pretty. Color brings brightness into our world.

4. Mask it Up
When my skin is looking pretty dull, I feel pretty dull myself and yucky. I like to do a facial mask when this happens. You can do any mask that you like, which ever gives you the results you like. I personally like a purifying mask, raw organic honey mask and a cucumber peel off mask. They give me the results i like and make my skin feel amazing.

5. Enhance Your Favorite Feature
Whether it is your eyes, hair, arms, legs or bum, show it off ! Whatever part you are most confident and proud off, show it off as much as possible (not literally). If you like your arms, wear tank tops and dresses, basically clothing that enhance your favorite features. Never be afraid to try new things !

6. Retail Therapy
Shopping is the best medicine, well in my opinion anyways. Sometimes all we need is something new, something we find exciting, something to look forward to. Its good to indulge every now and then. So go buy yourself something you have been dying for, something that will brighten up your days. It can be a purse, shoes, makeup, maybe a gift for someone important in your life. I tend to get overly excited when i buy people gifts, it makes me feel good.

To be honest, my absolute favorite thing to do sometimes is to stay in those sweats and baggy tshirt and just lay down and watch seasons of my favorite shows. Its best sometimes to just relax and clear your brain which ever way you like. At the end of the day, you should always remember you ARE beautiful despite what others tell you or you believe.

September Beauty Box 5 !

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hi Beauties !

So this month I recieved my first ever beauty box. I honestly felt like a 5 year old kid waking up on Christmas morning. For those who might not know a beauty box is a monthly subscription were you receive a cute little box with roughly 4 to 5 samples inside. I like the concept of these boxes because we are introduced to new or unheard of products, that just might be your next favorite thing !

Now beauty is still skin deep, but sometimes certain products just reassure us all the more. For this month's Beauty Box 5 the theme was On the Go.

Bella Pierre Cosmetics Celebration Shimmer Powder - Retail $15

Body Drench Lip Drench in Eucalyptus Retail $ 4.99

Fine Featherheads Fly Ties Retail $ 7.95 4 pack

Skiin Shop Instant Skin Tightner & Line Filler Retail $ 39.95 .5 oz

Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads with Argan Oil $ 6.99 50 count

Of all the samples in this box, I was most excited for the makeup removing wipes and the hair ties. The idea of these wipes is pretty genius, they don't require any rinsing unlike other making removers and are infused with Argan oil. Just wipe and go! Now, I absolutely love, love these hair ties, they don't pull or crease your hair and are a lot more comfortable than traditional hair ties and look way cutier.

As for the other items, I quite like the lip balm. It's hydrating and refreshing at the same time. It has a minty gum taste, not like your usual fruity lip balm but still enjoyable. The eyeshadow, i do like the color of it , I find it very pretty, but I don't normally wear shimmery eyeshadows. However it might be cute for a night look.

Thanks for reading !

Being You !

Hi Beauts,

So my purpose for this blog is to help all of us embrace the real us and our inner beauty. Speaking from personal expierence, i know it is hard to see the beauty in each and everyone of us and what we feel society expects from us.

You see, television and magazines nowadays, are not displaying REAL women, they are gorgeous models that are way pretty, and give us the idea that those women are what we should look like. How many people do you know fit in a size 0 and have perfectly clear skin and perfectly shaped everything ?! No one !

We are all made special, if we all were a bunch of models running around, then what would beauty be ? It is not an easy thing discovering your inner worth but we all deserve it. We all deserve to feel beautiful and special and worthy of all our hopes and dreams. We get lost on the way because we see what guys nowadays consider pretty or hot, or what type of girls get the guy while others dont. Maybe we try to change ourselves so.the guy we like will notice us, i know i have done that my fair share of times. It wasn't until now, that i realized how ridiculous that is. We should fix ourselves up for ourselves, no one else. If the guy we like doesn't like us for us, than screw him. We are so much better than the credit we give ourselves, it's amazing when we realize it.

I want to try to help people that are in my position and myself realize our worth and beauty. We are all extraordinarily amazing, don't let someone take that away from you.

Be you, Beyoutiful.
