These are some of the day to day events that happen to me as a professional makeup artist.
|January 5, 2018
I don't know about you but I can't believe it's 2018. It seems like last year went by so fast. I don't normally do the traditional New Years
resolutions, but I do like to use a new year, new month, and sometimes a new day as a way to regroup, and set myself towards the goals
that I want to accomplish.
So today I've partnered with a few brands to help you get your year's goals moving in the right direction.
One of the first things that people want to do, when they set a goal is to achieve it. I know it sounds kind of stupid for me to say that, but how many times
have you wanted to do something but you get discouraged because you've tried in the past and failed.... over and over again. Maybe it's because you
didn't write it down.
Not just a note or a list, but an on-going journal to motivate you to push forward, instead of procrastinating.
Writing it down will help you make your goal more tangible by seeing it on paper before you even do it. By journaling along the way, it helps you fine
tune and map out your path each day you write down your progress.
I'm new at doing this, but I've started using a Life Planner by Erin Condren, and a Dwell Studio journal that I got from Staples, to chart my path to
get my goals accomplished.
|BE MORE ACTIVE
I'm going to be truthful, I need to loose weight. Even though I'm always on the go, because I'm constantly traveling, I'm not active in the manner that I
need to be which is through exercising.
Looking your best can be a great way to motivate you into action. You know the saying "all dressed up and no where to go?" Well, I feel that dressing
the part can make you WANT to go...move....and shake things up! So I stopped by JCPenney and got a lot of active wear from Xersion.
Xersion has stylish activewear, that is exclusively at JCPenney, so you know it's affordable. Since I'm no size 0, it's also great to know that they carry
good looking outfits for every body...including mine.
Everyone wants to improve their worth. Better job, better pay, better relationship but many times we short change ourselves.
So I had to take a look at myself and ask if I've been paying myself what I'm worth...and unfortunately the answer is (swallowing hard) NO!
I don't take care of my health. I've been lazy and slacking on ME! If I was dating me, I'd breakup with myself.
A great way to value myself is to eat better. So I've been learning how to use House Foods organic Tofu, which is made from US grown
soybeans that contain no GMO.
If you've never used tofu before (I haven't), you don't have to worry, the House Foods web site has a lot of great recipes to try that are easy
to create. I've made some yummy Chipotle Maple Glazed Tofu , which I like to eat on my salad, and I've even made pizza!
It makes me feel good, knowing that I'm taking better care of myself.
Not everyone is confident with their smile. If your goal is to better your smile this year you have options. Getting braces or invisible aligners can be costly
and time consuming, with all of the visits to the dentist. I've partnered with the SmileDirectClub.com to let you know that they make it easy and more
affordable because your aligners are delivered directly to your doorstep at 60% less than other options.
This is how it works, you can go to their web site and have an at-home impressions kit sent to you, or just stop by a SmileShop location for a 3D scan.
If you are a candidate for aligners a dental professional will create a treatment plan specifically for you and ship them directly to you along with some
premium whitening supplies. If you start in January your smile will be the way you want by Summer.
For beautiful hair be sure to give your strands the TLC it needs, especially during the cold season when it's
Start with the shampoo and conditioner from the Alterna Haircare Caviar Moisture collection. They are
the #1 and #2 top selling products by the brand because they are clinically proven to transform your hair
after just 1 use.
Then finish with the Alterna Caviar CC Cream. This styling product has 10 benefits, including providing
softness, shine, heat protection and UV protection so your hair looks and feels beautiful and healthy.
products to help you achieve your goals in the new year
If your goal this year is to have better looking skin, then the last thing you want is a pimple. Using a cleanser that
strips your skin from can cause oil glands to kick into over drive. Try the Biore' Baking Soda Acne Cleansing
Foam, which has a rich thick foam that use the benefits of baking soda to deep clean and the acne fighting
benefits of salicylic acid, without going over board a stripping the moisture from your face.
The best part that I like is that it rinses off without leaving your skin clogged from any residue.
If you plan to travel more during the 2018 year, be sure to have travel gear that provides the best performance. Mark & Graham has travel essentials that are
stylish and more functional than the traditional products.
