New Year, New Me

I just have a feeling that this is going to be my year. When I think back to 2017, it was a pretty dull year for me. I have done some reflecting and now realize that I wasted the year doing very little. I don’t want to regret wasting another year and feel motivated to make some changes in my life.

I am going to eat healthier. I am not going to become vegetarian or vegan, but I am going to eat less processed foods. I find that when I want a snack I grab goldfish or something else similar to that and I want to stop this habit.

I am going to work out on the weekends. I dance everyday at school but want to be someone who exercises daily. I am not working out to loose weight; I am working out to live a healthy lifestyle and strengthen my body.

I am going to blog more. I want to post at least twice a week during the school year. I love being able to share my thoughts online and I feel inspired to post even more with the start of the new year.

I am going to work harder in school. I will be applying for college this year and I want to set myself up best for when that comes. I feel better when I know I have tried my hardest no matter what the outcome is and I feel that at the end of 2017 I began to slack off a little bit.

I wanted to post this so that in a year I can come back and see if I kept up with my resolutions. I hope that maybe this will motivate you to make some goals for the new year but if not oh well.

Highlight Power!!!

 

Highlighter has become one of the most popular trends in makeup within the past couple of years. I love highlighting my cheekbones and have tested multiple different brands and here are my favorites.

Benefit Watt’s Up: This highlighter is perfect for a natural glow. It is a cream to powder stick that is a beautiful gold shimmer. If you want a heavy highlighted look, this product is very easy to layer up.

L’oreal Paris LUMI: This was one of the first highlighters I used and it is a great product for beginners. This liquid highlighter comes in 3 different shades to better match your skin tone.

Wet n Wild Highlighting Powder: I first heard of this product on Youtube and now I am obsessed! The pigmentation is beautiful and this powder is extremely easy to apply. It’s perfect for a stronger, bolder highlight and comes in a gold shade as well as a gold-pinks shade.
