Loving Youself/Self-Confidence

img_0415

Loving yourself and having self confidence are really important to me. During my middle school years and couple of years of high school I had trouble loving myself and self confidence. I got bullied really bad during that time so I started to believe what everyone was saying about me. I was called gorilla, ape, fat nose, fat ass, and shit I even got picked on for having a big butt. The kids at school would bully me about the way I walk because I’m peigion toed. I would try not to let all of those things bother me but I’m gonna honest it did.  I remember every time I would get home I would lock myself in the room and cry. I use to just make up all kinds of excuses some days just not to go to school and I even would pray to just have a really good day. I started to let myself go. I just didn’t care what I looked like, what I wore or anything. I was basically depressed and I just had to figure some way to get out of it.

During my 9th grade I started to get tired of going through the same BS over and over and I wanted to fix it. I started to taking up for myself and it worked tbh! The bullying wasn’t so bad anymore and I was okay a little. I wasn’t as happy but okay. Then during the summer I was getting ready to go to the tenth grade I moved schools. It wasn’t because I was bullied it was a personal family problem. I have to say that was actually the best move for my life.

My tenth grade year I really found myself. I was so happy during this time. I started loving myself, caring for myself, and having high self esteem. I made friends at the new school I went to and people were just friendly. I could dress the way I want without getting judge, style my hair the way I wanted too. I would even look at myself in the mirror and say positive things like:”You’re beautiful”, “you’re a strong woman, don’t let anyone test you down”. I started even smiling! I remember I use to just have this anger mean look and never smile. I felt good about my size too! Being a plus size girl, I feel like you get made fun of the most. But I love my shape and idgaf what people even think. Like if you wanna rock a certain piece of clothing, then do it! I love my big thighs,stomach,legs,nose,arms, and most of all my ass! 😂 Like who cares! Just be yourself and do you! But when you have positive people around you, you feel so much better about yourself and positive quotes and doing what you love help you too.

Loving yourself and self confidence are what define you in my opinion. No man or woman will love you unless you love yourself. Focus on you and do what you love in life. Never let anyone tear you and what you love to do down.  But the most important thing is you cannot give a f@$k. What I mean by that is you can’t let anything or anyone get to you in a negative way. That’s one of the things I live by believe it or not! If you have anything negative or someone that’s negative in your life cut it or them out of it! You’ll feel so much better.

I’m dedicating this to any girl or woman who has been bullied, made fun of, been through depression, or has low self esteem! If you have any questions or comments just leave them down below. 😊

Things Iv’e Been Loving

I did a little shopping these past few months and here are some products and other items that I lovedBlog 1

1.)Bonita Impression of Ari by Ariana Grande ( Can be purchased at some stores, Ebay) $3.99; This perfume smells exactly like the Ariana Grande perfume! My cousin had it and I was just like I have to have this because it’s way cheaper and I don’t wanna pay a ton for the Ariana Grande perfume. I tried to find this perfume at my local Factory Connection and they sold out fast so when I went to Florida last week I found it and had to purchase it! It smells like something sugary mixed with lavendar to me! I love it and it lasts on you all day! I promise it’s worth the money.

2.) Cantu Argan Oil Leave-In-Conditioner ( can be purchased at local drugstores, Walmart, local beauty stores) $5.99; This product is literally AMAZING. This product helps moisturizes my hair and makes it super soft! Ever since I started wearing my real hair i’ve been using this! I love the consistency of it. It smells good and it’s a little thick but it gets the job done! I recommend this product to anyone with relaxed hair.

3.)She Concealar ( I got this product at a beauty supply store in Florida) $2.49; I needed some new concealar so I just picked this up from the beauty supply store because it was cheap and wanted to try it.It’s great for the price, but I would recommend getting the L.A. Girl Concelar instead. It gets the job done though.

4.) Magazines!!!(Seventeen, Disfunkshion, and Jones) (Can be purchased at Barnes and Nobles, Walmart) One thing people don’t know about me is that I love to read magazines! Especially Seventeen magazines! I have so many of them I can start a collection, Lol. I have to buy one every month, lol. I have since 9th grade! I know…crazy right? haha. But I was in Barnes and Nobles and I discovered the magazines Jones and Disfunkshion. I love the fashion and the diffrent themes! So I had to just get them!

5.) Shea Mositure Hair Masque ( can be purchased  at the Dollar General, Walmart, and beauty stores) Sorry guys, but I forgot how much this product cost but I know the big jar of it is about $11. Someone recommeded me to use this and I love it! After I get done shampooing and conditoning my hair I apply this to my for a hour then rinse it out with cold water! It’s thick so you don’t need much to put in your hair. It smells good and its for people with that colored their hair and people with relaxed hair!  It helps repair damage! I deal with having dry hair and dandruff. It also helps with that. I really give this product 5 stars.

6.) Garnier Clearly Brighter Moisturizer ( Can be purchased at Walmart or any drug store) $12.74; My friend gave me this and I have to say I love it! It smells like oranges! I apply this every night after washing my face.

7.)Face and Body Treatment System ( I purchased it at a local shop while in Florida) $7.99; So when I spotted this while shopping I had to grab it! Iv’e been trying to find a face brush for awhile for a reasonable price so I purchased it! It works really well! I feel like it gets all the dirt and oil off of my face. Iv’e been using it everday and I love it! You can also use this as a nail buffer, rolling massage, a sponge for if you have senstive skin, and a pumince stone! It doesn’t come with batteries but it’s worth a money! Better than buying a Clairsonic in my opinion.

8.) Organix Shampoo and Conditioner Eucalyptus mint ( can be purchased at Walmart or drug stores) $6.99; Iv’e been using their shampoos and conditoners for about a year! A little pricey but I love it! This particular shampoo helps with my scalp because I deal with bad dandruff and having a bad scalp! In the shampoo and conditner it has tea tree oil and cooling mint to help the scalp! It works and you can feel it! Its sooooo soothing. Especially, when you rinse the conditiner out with cold water. Worth the money in my opinion.

9.) Biore Baking Soda Face Wash ( can be purchased at any drugstore or Walmart) $5.99; I did a mini haul on this product but im just so in love this face wash. This helps with my skin alot! It also leaves a cooling sensation on my face and It also smells really good. I recommend this product to anyone.

It’s just a shirt with my initials on it and I’m wearing black shorts from Torrid with some Chacos.

My Weekend!

At first I didn’t want to go but they made me, lol. We decided to go to a hookah bar and chill then when went to IHOP. I have to say it was a pretty damn fun night! And our waiter was hilarious and cool. Made me laugh the whole night. I’m glad my friends dragged me out the house 😂. One of the best nights I had in a long time. 

I decided to go for a simple makeup look! I actually love how it came out! I’m wearing big hoop earrings ( that’s all I wear 😉😂). You can get them in a pack at Forever 21 for like 3 dollars!! I also wanted to rock my hair in a little bun lol. I didn’t feel like putting it in a sock bun. 


The only decent picture I could get of my outfit! I’m wearing a coral dress from rebdolls.com!It was my first time wearing that night and it was comfortable and I love how the color went good with my skin tone! I’m wearing black wedges from Torrid! I got them a year ago!

How My Day Went/ Mini Makeup Look

 

IMG_1682

A couple of days ago I wanted to get out and have myself some ‘Me’ time. I decided, why not get all cute and do my makeup?! I did just that! After that I finished getting dressed and doing my makeup, I left out and went into the city. I went to my favorite store, Ulta, to purchase some setting spray. Then I went down to Barnes and Nobles to look at books and magazines. After looking around, I decided to purchase myself a fashion/makeup magazine. Doing that, they have a Starbucks in Barnes and Nobles so I bought a Caramel Frappe ( It was so good! you should give it a try). I sat down for awhile just to look on my phone and read through my magazine. I had a pretty good day after that. Down below, I’m going to give a little mini makeup look and what products I used. I’m not the best a makeup, but I actually like how it came out!

My makeup look!!! I wanted to do a really natural look and I love the way it came out! Down below are the products I used.

IMG_1704 blog

 

  1. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer $16.00 ( can be purchased at Ulta or Smashbox.com) This stuff is so amazing! It helps keep my makeup on all day! It’s very lightweight also! The only thing I hate about it, is the price! but other than that is great.
  2.  BareMinerals Matte Powder Foundation $28.50 ( can be purchased at Ulta) This stuff is so AMAZING. Sometimes I use just use the powder on my face or I put my liquid foundation on first, then set it. Either way, it works well for me! I got that matte kind because I deal with having a oily face. If you deal with the same thing I would purchase it. It’s worth the money!
  3. Maybelline Shine Free Loose Powder $4.99 ( Can be purchased at Walmart or any drug store) To be honest, there is nothing special about this, lol. I just use it to bake.
  4. Too Faced Natural Eyes $36.00 ( can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora, or online at Toofaced.com) I’m obsessed with Too Faced products! I splurge on most of their things! If I ever get rich, I’m buying everything from them, lol. But anyways, if I ever go for a natural makeup look I use this palette. It’s mostly brown and light brown colors. It’s very pigmented and it lasts all day.
  5. Too Faced Better Than Sex $23.00 ( Can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora, or Toofaced.com) This mascara is the BOMB ( do people still say that? LMBO). This mascara makes it looks like I’m wearing fake eyelashes. You can’t tell in the picture, but I promise i’m not lying! I hate wearing fake eyelashes so I use this mascara or my They’re Real mascara by Benefit.
  6. Maybelline Foundation: Dream Liquid Mousse $7.99 ( Can be purchased at Walmart any drugstore) I purchased this foundation a couple of days ago and it was my first time wearing in the picture above and I have to say I love it! It’s very light weight, makes your face feel very smooth, and it has great coverage.
  7. Nyx Lingerie $6.99 ( Can be purchased at Ulta) This color is called Beauty Mark!I was at my friend’s house playing with her lipsticks and I fell in love with this color! I was just like I have to have it! But every time I would go to Ulta they would never have any of the Lingerie lipsticks. Then one day I finally got the color I wanted! It a cream consistency and it’s a matte! I love it and it stays on all day. But i recommend you putting on a chapstick first then applying it! but other than that its a good liquid lipstick.

If you have Facebook, you must see those food videos people share on there, so I watch one on this recipe and was like this looks good, so why not try to make it. I made it and my family and I fell in love with it. If you like sausages, pasta, and cheese then you will most likely love this!

Instructions:

  1. I start off by cutting the sausages, then I cooked them in a skillet until they’re done.
  2. Boil water then put the pasta in. When the pasta is done drain it.
