Christmas Cheer

The holidays are my favorite time of the year. I practice gratitude daily but some thing about the spirit of Christmas puts me in an even more appreciative and jolly mood. I love the days off from work/school, delicious food and most importantly spending time with family. Being around family can be stressful (there’s all…

Be Kind To Yourself

Life can be so demanding. Although, I like to think myself as someone who puts self-care on top of her to-do list,  there are time when I  find myself restless and unmotivated. I am a firm believer that we do not get what we want, we get what we deserve. There are so many beautiful things in…

Must Read | Four Agreements For A Happy Life

I’m obsessed with The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. I first discovered this book 5 years ago while working at a Yogaworks Studio in Los Angeles.  It was exactly what I was ready to learn at time and what I always come back to when I am not feeling 100% myself and I…

Bright Smile | Oil Pulling

Ok, first thing is first: this is gross. But it works! Oil pulling is a natural organic way to brighten your smile and whiten your teeth. It also has other benefits such as preventing tooth decay, gingivitis, bad breath and cavities! (good news for my sweet tooth 😋) I wanted to try oil pulling for different…

Sculpted Brows | Simple and Bold

Fun Day at Malibu Wines

I recently turned 26, and instead of having a mental quarter life meltdown, I invited my close friends and my beau for a day of wine savoring and drinking at Malibu Wines.  I had been here once before for a close friend’s birthday, but for less than two hours. I didn’t get to enjoy the…

Start Your Day by Setting Your Intention

“The beginning of your day is a fantastic place to plant the seed”- Kathryn Budig

Waking up each morning in a good mood doesn’t come naturally to everyone, including me. Some of us want to keep sleeping, even if we have a long day ahead and already slept more than 8 hours (that’s me!) or wake up in a groggy mood because we didn’t get enough rest (that’s usually everyone else I know). There are some days when I can wake up and kickass, but there are also a lot of days where I wish I had a personal valet to get me out of my bed vortex.

Learning to receive

After a three-month hiatus, I am finally back in cyberspace and ready to blog my life away (kinda)! So here we go..first blog post as a college graduate.. I always thought my last semester of college was going to be a breeze. Little did I know, I’d end up crying actual tears. A 27-page thesis…

Foundation Review| Vibrancy by Josie Maran

After wearing my Makeup Forever HD foundation for over a year, I decided to venture out and try a foundation that would not only hide blemishes and redness but also nourish my skin. Don’t get me wrong, I highly recommend Makeup Forever HD. The coverage is amazing and it is probably one of the best…
