Week of 5/13-19

Hey Besties,

This week was a greatt week!! Work was busy but I always think that’s good because it makes the days go by fast. It would be time to go and I would be like omg already! That is always a great feeling!

When the weekend came around i was so ready for it. Friday after work I made sure to clean so that I can have my weekend free to enjoy.

Saturday I hung out with the babies a bit. We played outside until Christopher had to leave for work. Then we came in had lunch and took a quick nap.

After our nap Sairy (my mother in law) and Alyssa (my sister in law) came over. We took some head shoots for Alyssa who is going back to acting. they came out super good and I was so proud of myself.

Sunday we all got together for a fun and chill pool day! Every year I burn and cry like a baby because of it. This year I put on sunscreen and I lived haha

It was nice to spend time with family and was the cherry on top of my week πŸ’•

My swim suit for this pool day was bought at amoresmiles 😍

Thank you for reading!

Love, Alex πŸ’‹

Week of 5/6 – 5/12

Hey besties!

This week was a great week with very down moments.

The down moments are mentally challenging moments. As I posted about before I am going to start sharing all of me! For some years now I have been struggling with hours, days and or weeks where I get very sad. I cry all the time, I get lazy and don’t want to do anything. I force myself to get up and go on with my day. Then I get mad at myself for feeling this way because I don’t understand why. If one was to ask me why I am sad there is no answer to that! I have an amazing and loving finance, two beautiful puppies, and am forming my career.

I don’t understand why these waves of sadness come, and it’s really upsetting. but I am going to be talking to my doctor about it soon ❀

So today as been a good day and I wanna talk about the good things that happened this week. I got Promoted at work! πŸ˜ƒ I visited my friends and family. I spent time with Christopher’s family for mothers day. πŸ’– Luna got spayed! (yes this is good) haha She wont be getting her period and bleeding on my floors. I filmed a new you tube video and organized my Social media planning/ thought board πŸ˜ƒ

I can’t wait to share some posts I have in store for this week!

Thank you for reading!

Bar Soap as Facial Cleanser?

Hey besties!

Today we are going to talk about Facial cleansing 😁

It is soo important to have a good facial routine when using makeup and just to stay healthy in general. I have have been following my routine for a couple of month now and it has made my skin game and makeup game change! I can do a full in depth video on my skin are routine, leave comments below if you would be interested in that!

But for today I have too talk about this Bath bar I have been using as a facial cleaner! I know that sounds crazy right? All bloggers and you tubers talk about are liquid cleansing solutions. After I tried the Yardley Charcoal Bath bar I feel in love!! When Yardley sent me this one I put it in the shower and used it for about 2 weeks. I stared to notice how it left my legs feelings so nice and smooth especially after shaving.

One day I was in the shower and I did not have my facial cleanser, so i just grabbed this bath bar and used it on my face. After my shower my face felt so clean and energized I was shook. I then began to use it everyday as my quick morning facial cleanser. I mainly use it as a great first step to getting that top layer of dirt and dead skin of the face. but I love on those days when I hit snooze and don’t have time to do my whole skin care routine.

I just use this and it leaves my skin supper clean and a bit moisturized. It is a great soap for cleaning the skin of dirt and germs.

You can also get some on amazon if your a prime member you get free shipping 😁

#theunhappytruth

Heyy Besties!

As I sit at my desk while eating my lunch I think to myself β€œanother day”. Another day I find it so hard to post on here, Insta, and youtube.

I’m tired!

I’m tired of only sharing the good; even when everything is not ok.

At this point I think we all know these influences, bloggers, models, celebrities, Youtuber’s lives aren’t perfect.

Each person uses their platform to showcase what they wanna give to the world.

I wanna show the full me.

I say full me because yes the super extra, girly, fun, makeup faced girl is me!!!

But I am also the emotional, shy, and anxious cry baby.

I am done!

I’m going to share it all. All of me. The good the bad the happy and sad days.

#theunhapppytruth

In my PJs all day with no makeup standing in front of my window because I just cried about missing my family. This is me πŸ˜ƒ

A full on beat face with a cute black blouse and my photo lighting. This is also me 😊

Family Adventures

Hey besties!!!

Happy may! Cant wait to start seeing all the flowers blossoming and spring colors everywhere.

As I mentioned my family came to visit and we had lots of fun!!

First we went to the Nasa Space Center in Houston. It was so cool to learn all about astronauts and rocket ships. Did you know that astronauts pee into their suits. It’s called the MAG, witch is short for Maximum Absorbency Garment. We also got to see real rockets there were launched back in the 70s. My fave part was the exhibit where we got to touch a piece of the moon!

After the space center we made our way to the board walk.

Being a jersey girl and going to the board walk here I was a bit disappointment. But I understand that Houston TX has no coast so it is a bit difficult to have a great board walk. They had 4 rides and we went on all of them, that best one was the wooden roller-coaster. Fun fact i use to hate rides and get super sick! Then my childhood best friend Jessenia made me fall in love with them.



The following day we went to Houston downtown aquarium with my family and Christopher family witch was super fun! Everything about it was nice I loved all parts!

Following that we went to the Aqua S Ice-cream shop witch I will be making a post all about it next week. Stay tuned!

The rest of the time I showed them all around Houston and where I work and live. Overall it was a great time and experience! I am so blessed to have such a loving and caring family.

There where sooo many pictures that I can’t possibly post them all here! So I just made an album on my Facebook so go check that out.

Thank you for reading!

Where have I been?

Hey My besties!!!

Soo Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days 😒 But I am back and better then ever guys!!!

I spent last week with my family who came to visit and it was amazing πŸ’•

As most of you know I live in Houston TX and my family lives in NJ. They have never been here and it was their first time in TX and seeing my house and my life here. It was so much fun spending time with them and showing them around.

I will be uploading a post all about the fun activities we did so stay tuned for that πŸ˜ƒ

And on that note who else hates going back to work after a vacation? πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

It was so hard to get up and have to readjust to my schedule. The worse part was catching up on all the work I had missed and meeting deadlines I needed to get done. This left me with no time to blog.

But After a refreshing time with my family and some time off I am ready to come back and deliver to you guys some great content!

I have been working on Youtube videos, more blogs, makeup looks, and more!!! Cant wait to share it all with you 😘

Thank you for reading!

Love, Alex πŸ’‹

Quick Dollar Store DIY (Easter Edition)

Hello Besties!

Today I am going to share with you all a super quick Easter D.I.Y I made last night for my coworkers. Of-course here we slay and save #slayingwhilesaveing so everything comes from the dollar store!! πŸ˜ƒ

So first I got a mason jar and filled the bottom with green confetti. This is suppose to be grass.

Then I got all my Easter candy and my Easter Egg bunny. I filled the bunny with as much candy as I could.

I then placed some Egg candies on top of my grass and placed the bunnies right on top of that. Next to my bunnies I placed a carrot filled with powdered candy.

To finish it off I added some yarn and tied it onto the lid. Secrete *the dollar store flower section has super cute ribbon and yarn; better than the art section*

After looking at them for 5 minutes I thought they are still missing something. So I deiced to print happy Easter labels. I do this on word on my computer. I placed those behind the bunnies and made the yarn bow a-line with them.

Super quick, super fun and super easy! Let me know if you guys try it. I would love to see what you come up with 😁

Thank you for reading!
