So I wanted to give a little update and that is I am in the process of going blonde. Right now I am at a light golden blonde and I am absolutely loving it. I never really thought I would look good as a blonde, even though I was a natural blonde at one point in my life. I am having a lot of fun with it right now and plan to keep going lighter. I’ll keep y’all updated! :)
I Tag you! Saw this going around youtube and decided to do it myself :)

I am obsessed with candles, I especially love the ones Bath & Bodywork’s. They are just so expensive! $20.00 for a candle? Ugh it is such a painful buy sometimes. Earlier this month I was shopping at Homegoods, (aka the TJ Maxx of house wear) I found a stash of all sorts of candles. They were about half their original price too. I didn’t find any of the Slatkin & Co ones, but I found WoodWick which I hear is a really nice candle brand. They also had fancy brands from London and even Calvin Klein candles.
I ended up purchasing the WoodWick candle and I actually really like it. The wick makes a crackling noise as it burns, which reminds me of a fireplace. I love it. The scent quality is there too, it really does make your whole apartment smell good. That is one of the things I love about the B&B candles, their strong scent.
The verdict? I think I will be sticking with my Homegoods candles for now on. I paid only $7.99 for my WoodWick candle as opposed to the $20.00 for the Slatkin & Co brand. They also still offered fall scents, so it wasn’t just the scents that were out of season. Looks like Ill only be buying my B&B candles when they are on the 2 for 1 deal. :)
Fall is here, which means that the weather is changing, with the changing weather comes illness. Ah the not-so-beloved cold and flu season. Getting older and growing up has made me realize that the world does not stop when you’re sick anymore. There are those times where you have to keep pushing through it, even when you feel horrible. There are some ways to feel a little bit better when you are feeling not well. Here are my tips.
1. Drink lots and lots of hot tea
Typically I am not one for hot drinks but when I am sick hot tea is absolutely amazing. The warmth of the tea really soothes you throat and chest. It can also relieve some of that congestion and sinus pressure. It’s also really important because it keeps you hydrated, which will help you feel a lot better. There’s nothing worse than being sick AND dehydrated. Plus it tastes good, there are so many flavors and options to choose from.
2. Brightly colored makeup and a cute outfit can go a long way.
When you’re feeling under the weather it is hard to find that motivation to still look presentable. My typical sick wear attire consists of yoga pants, over sized sorority t-shirt, glasses, no make-up and a messy bun. We all need these days, yes, but I find when you take the time to put yourself together you feel a lot better. People take notice too. Yesterday I chose to cover up my sickness with a brightly colored necklace and lips. The result? People took notice to my lips and necklace rather than my tired looking face. This part is mainly mental but when you look good, you tend to feel better.
3. Wake up a little earlier/ take a nice shower
I know when you’re sick you may want those extra minutes of rest but I have found when you wake up early and give yourself time to adjust you feel much better. This is specially important if you’re taking medicine to help you sleep such as Nyquil. I actually dealt with this a couple of days ago, I felt my sickness coming on and decided maybe I could sleep it off. The result was I slept in late the next morning and felt extremely exhausted the whole time I was at work. The next day I took Nyquil again but made sure I didn’t sleep more than 8 hours and surprising I felt more awake.
4. Treat yo self’
There is no better time to treat yo self than when you are feeling sick. I like to let my self have things that I normally don’t. Such as soda, spicy food, chocolate and etc. It doesn’t have to just be food related but I find when treating myself when I’m sick makes me feel better. Letting yourself have those things you normally don’t gives you a little dose of happiness when you feel miserable. Oh and Retail therapy is real y’all.
I wish you all good health :)
Since when did it become okay for a grown man to not wear deodorant? I’ve worked in retail for the past 2 years and this seems to be a reoccurring theme. I just don’t understand, what’s even worse is that I am forced to assist them and smell these awful scents. Sometimes it’s so bad that it lingers in the fitting rooms and stinks up the clothing they try on. Has anyone else noticed this problem? Haha I know it’s gross but it happens so much it just boggles my mind. Half the time these men have girlfriends with them, whom I feel sorry for. Let me know what ya’ll think?
