A Job that makes you happy?

Hey guys, its been a while since I’ve made one of these honest posts and this topic is something that at the moment has been making me frustrates and unhappy. Finding a job that makes me happy or creating my own.

Have you ever felt like you can and want to do a little of everything and that you are good at a ton of things? Yes? well so do I. I’ve found myself in a bit of a pickle in the sense that I am already 28 and have no clue where to direct all my energy and creativity towards and make a living out of it. What I do know is that I am inclined to doing something that has to do with art, creativity and design, what I don’t have is a sense of direction, marketing or money to start to even experiment on things till they work out.

The ideal thing would be to just say I want, and have… but, this is real life and things don’t happen that easily and we have to work on figuring ourselves out and find our north. For some is just as easy as to get a job and do it and live a miserable work life, for others their path has been clear their whole lives, and then there is the kind like me, who is stuck in limbo with a ton of talent waiting to come out.

Hope you are the kind that has their future figured out and wish me luck on my journey to finding the job that will make me wake up everyday excited to start my day.

Kisses,

Minimal Southwest – Minimalism for fresh souls.

Lately I’ve been really into this close to minimal southwestern style in Interior Design that has been pop-ing up on my Pinterest lately. The clean and collected aspect of this style mixed with small and subtle touches of patterns and color making use of the space in perfect way and not cluttering the areas keeping that airy feel. Using white walls as a canvas to pin point pieces of great value and use. I really love it!  how about you? are you into the simple with a pop of personality?

 Hope you enjoyed this post and I will keep posting more like these if you like them! Kisses!

 

Mini Summer Vacation+Huge Salad Bar

Hey you guys! Last weekend I had the most amazing time in Punta Cana at this hotel called Dreams Punta Cana! It was amazing! It had a ton of vegan friendly food and drinks, the pool has Hugeee and it was super pretty and clean!  Here is a little video and pictures of my trip! ❤️

Discrepancy in package deal products. 

Hey guys! Today I wanted to write about something that has always sparked curiosity in me on how these companies think when selling their products. When I say package deal I am referring to those products in which you are sold a pack that includes 2 or more containers with products in which one acts on the other or one needs to be used after the other. Yeah cool , thanks for making it easier for us and selling them like that! But why if I am meant to use both products simultaneously, they don’t contain the same amount of product or the equivalent of its usage! For example:

 

Bleach and their developers, am I the only one who is always left with half of the creme bleach? I bet not. Same with teeth treatments, hair treatments, etc etc etc… So what is up with that? Any logical explanation?

If you know let me know in the comments below!

Much love!

ipsy bag: June

Hello my dear friends! I’ve been debating weather to make a post about this or not because as you may know I became a vegan on June 6th (if you didn’t know here is a post that talks about it) and this subscription has little to none vegan products so yeah. In the end I decided to make a review either way and finish those products and cancel my subscription.

Here is what was inside the bag. It was underwhelming at best! This particular bag was not in my taste whatsoever. the bright colors of the bag and the edginess where so not for me. the nail polish color is SO NOT for my skin color or of my taste like I clearly specified on the site. then there is the urban decay shadow, it is intense! I do like the color payoff but the color is very edgy. the blush/bronzer/highlighter little compact was sheer, and is not buildable. I have yet to try the mask because I haven’t had time for like… myself but I am looking forward to use them and lastly the color pop creme gel liner, I am currently using it and so far so good. that was the only thing I liked!

Some of these products are cruelty free but still have some products that contain animal substances in them therefor are not completely vegan.

If you got the bag let me know if you liked it or not! kisses and love,

Why I’ve been MIA? well, here is why!

For the past couple of day I’ve been in an adjustment phase due a to huge decision I’ve taken that will change my life for ever and is that… I’ve gone VEGAN you guys!

Let me tell you a little bit more of how that came to be. When June started, it became a really slow month of work at the place where I worked leaving me with a lot of time to watch YouTube and read a ton. so a as days went by and I watched videos, in my YouTube feed started appearing a ton of “what I eat in a day” videos and videos with the term “Vegan” in them. At first I paid no attention to the ones tittles vegan in them because I honestly wasn’t interested and watched the “WIEID” videos until one day I came across a video from JessBeautician (she is amazing and so sweet) and loved how lovely her meals were and they were all VEGAN! so I was like OK, this is kind of a sign… let me look into this thing! and started digging up on YouTube to see if someone was well informed to absorb all that knowledge and see what all that was all about!

In my search I came across a video from Carly Byble saying she has gone vegan, the reasons and thanking YouTubers Natasha and Luca “That Vegan Couple” for her conversion from vegetarian to full on vegan. As it was to be expected, I searched for their channel and was hocked! Everything they said was fed to you in such a kind and “I want to teach you” kind of way and I loved that! So I watched most of their videos and when I came across a video response they made directed to a misinformed girl that has P.C.O.S and claimed veganism made it worse, I felt like that video was specially made since I have that condition and have struggling for years with it, and that’s when it REALLY HIT! I thoroughly looked into the vegan lifestyle and saw the “Best Speech You Will Ever Hear – Gary Yourofsky” and it sealed the deal for me! It is a very graphic and very strong speech but it is filled with truth and facts about how it all works now, and how it is supposed to be working!

I am still in the Learning/Transitioning phase and will take time to learn all about it but I am 100% committed to it, I’ve cut out meat, dairy and eggs and it has been a great decision.

Hope this wasn’t too overwhelming for you guys but I felt like I had to share this with you. thank you so much for reading!

Love,

Pinterest Hack or Wack: Mascara

Like every single Pinterest obsessed girl, I’ve always wanted to try all the amazing “Hacks” that appear on my Pin Feed and one day I came across an easy one that I could start experimenting with without failing miserably. the Mascara hack consists on two options to get the most out of your dry mascara o use the little that is left on the tube by liquefying it.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The first option is using 5 to 8 drops of  VISINE or some sort of eye-drops and shake it very well and then… MAGIC?… well I took my Estée Lauder sample size mascaras (perfect for travel makeup bags) and tried it! as you can see on the last picture, it kinda worked! it was sort of liquidy and sheer but it worked!

For the second one, it just required 5 minuted of your time and hot boiling water! as you can see, it didn’t work quite as well as I thought it might. Maybe I didn’t do it right and covered it to have the steam properly melt the product.. so I will try it again and let you know via Twitter!

This is more of an “I am in a hurry and ran out of mascara” kind of  hack… I guess it is sort of useful if its night time and you have to go out. I liked it! and hope you like this post and let me know if you’ve tried it and if the worked for you!
