New Year, New Me?!

Such a cheesy saying I know. But a new year typically marks the start of changes we want to make. Whether we want to be more confident, thinner, more fit, less debt.. and so on. Today I am 28w4d pregnant. Fully in my third trimester and ready for everything this year is going to bring me.

Today I started the 30 days to healthy living (30dhl) challenge and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I plan on sharing a little more of my pregnancy journey as well as my fitness and nutrition journey. I know this will be a huge year.

I wanted to explain the 30dhl a little bit because I realized many people had the wrong idea of what it is. First I would like to mention I have been studying health/nutrition for many years and have my master’s in public health. These aren’t just opinions, I will be stating facts. The program is not a lose weight quick fad diet, tho you can lose weight. You don’t have to work out tho physical activity will help you reach results and is always a good idea for your heart health. This program focus on detoxifying your body and teaching you how to FUEL your body with proper nutrition. Using Arbonnes products just makes it so much easier bc you only have to worry about one healthy meal a day and use the shakes to provide all the nutrition you need for the other 2 meals.

It seriously couldn’t be easier to be healthy. And as a pregnant lady I can feel so good about getting all the protein and nutrients and vitamins I need with little to no effort!

I feel the need to share this info because it seriously changes lives! Balances sugar with no spikes, no feeling hungry or depriving yourself through the day, just pure, beneficial nutrition.

If you have any questions please let me know! I get so excited about this stuff and I am so focused on helping people get healthier.

My Blogtober Break

Hello Friends! I apologize for not sticking to Blogtober. I was doing really well but I started getting more in tune with my health and focusing on myself health and also I graduate Grad school this month!!! I have one last assignment and I will officially be a gal with her Masters in Public Health!! I want to make sure I am still getting my posts in because my blog is my passion but I also have wanted to put a lot of focus into school.

I also have been trying to look for online jobs so that I can make a little bit of money to help out. Sometimes I feel guilty that I don’t work but at the same time I remember that I would be spending what I make at a job to pay for daycare and that just doesn’t make sense. If anyone knows of great places to make extra money from home let me know in the comments!

I hope everyone is doing great! How is your October so far? I don’t know about y’all but I am so excited for this holiday season and for 2018. I have a feeling that it is going to be a great year. Also I am thinking about doing a get to know me better post so leave me questions in the comments that would be good for that.

Thanks loves! Till next time

Bath Time Troubles

I have recently made a discovery that should have been super obvious but it wasn’t until it happened to me and my family! While going through our normal night time routine of giving baby K a bath I realized that some of his bath toys were dark inside. They were growing mold!!!! GROSS! One squeeze of our bathtime basket balls and black gross-ness was in the bath water. I quickly removed the toys and drained the water. This is when I decided that there will be no more bath toys with holes in them.. which is surprising a lot to ask for.

Most bath toys I found were squeeze toys that squirt water. Knowing that I wasn’t just going to keep buying bath toys that could grow mold on the inside and that are very difficult to clean, I kept searching. I finally found a set of plastic boats that can’t hold on to moisture at walmart and found rubber duckies at target that don’t have a pesky hole in the bottom!

Moms make sure you are checking bath toys for mold and drying toys out if they do have holes!!

Be back tomorrow friends! Hope your October is rocking so far!!!

Halloween Look #1

This will be a quick little post friends but I wanted to share some of the halloween looks I have done. This is one of my favorite looks I have ever done. Me and my husband dressed as a Voodoo Doll and a witch doctor. The look took me many hours to put together and about an hour to apply. I could see but not very well, which meant no driving for me and drinking was difficult. I had to use a straw and eating was not possible. But I had a blast scaring people and everyone wanted to take pictures which is always fun for me!

It took lots of liquid latex, masking tape, hemp string and fake blood.

Over all was such a fun night and costume. I loved it!!!

Your Lash Bar Review

Your Lash Bar: Full review. Friends lets jump in!

As part of my goals I set for myself each month, I usually have one that is about getting dressed and accessorizing and in general putting myself together more often/better, even if I don’t leave the house. So as part of that, that means putting my face together. I always look for new lashes and I have some that are absolutely amazing and love but that doesn’t mean I don’t continue to look for others for my collection. I have decided to try out this brand Your Lash Bar which I found on instagram.

They are super affordable: 3 for 15$ or 5 for 25$ or 6$ each. IMG_2397I picked up these 3 styles. Top left is Kamikaze. Top right is Bellini. Bottom is Manhattan. All their lashes are named after drinks, so cute! I also picked up this lash applicator tool, I usually use tweezers which works great but I thought I would give this a try. I love the packaging. The marble with the rose gold lettering and the drink glasses in the letters. All the little details are beautiful.

The lashes are nice quality at such a great price. They are not too heavy and don’t weigh down the eyes, which of course is important. Bellini and Manhattan will definitely be staples in my lash rotation. Kamikaze will probably be more for special looks and photos because of how over the top they are.

Overall these lashes are a total hit! Give them a try and let me know what you think!

October Goals

Who else is super excited it is October?? I think it just kicks off the holidays season. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! I always get super excited and go all out! So let’s jump into some goals.

  • My first goal is to continue on my healthy/happy body image. I want to lose a little weight, which I have spoken about before and I was doing great but now I need to step it up and not fall off the train. I want to get into posting outfit photos and I need to be happy and confident with my body in order to do so.
  • Next I want to dress and makeup myself more. Even if I am not going anywhere I need to get out of my PJ’s and put an outfit together and do my hair and makeup. I think that will help me with my first goal as well.
  • For October I really wanted to do my first Blogtober. I can’t promise I will post every day but I want to really try my best!! I also have been working on many SFX looks and I will be trying my best to post a new SFX look on my instagram each day so definitely take a moment and go follow me on Instagram! I will of course share some of the looks on here as well.

I’m keeping this month very simple because I have big goals and I graduate with my Masters in Public Health!!!!!! Yayyyy!!!

till next time

It’s BLOGTOBER!!

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.41.34 AMI really want to put my best effort in to doing Blogtober for the first time. With the help of some fabulous twitter friends I have some great Ideas for what to right about! So if you are new to blogtober, like me, let me introduce you. I will be writing some of my normal posts like monthly goals and a few reviews but I will also post some fall outfits, makeup looks, decor, recipes, and of course Halloween looks!

Writing a post everyday in October is going to take quite a bit of work but I think it will be so fun. Who doesn’t love fall?? It seems like people go crazy when it finally hits autumn. Even though it is still 90 degrees here where I live I want to be full on in the spirit of fall! I hope you enjoy and hopefully this will be a great success!

Talk super soon friends!

Let me know what fun fall things you’ll be doing or I should write about!

xoxo Erin
