Lazy Ways to Remove Makeup

We all have those moments when we feel too exhausted to wash our face to remove our makeup. I’ve been in that position far too many times that I would like. However, I recently found some lazy ways to remove makeup after a long day and decided to share.

Please note, if possible, please thoroughly wash your face every night. This will help prevent breakouts, spread bacteria from your face to sleeping areas, and way more other reasons. However, these lazy beauty techniques are easy to do from the comfort of your bed or in front of your TV, which is where I tend to do this. Plus, they do a pretty good job or removing your makeup and cleansing your face.

I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad this weekend is finally here. This week has been a busy blur for me. Work has been so hectic that I’ve barely had enough time to just plop on my sofa to veg and binge watch shows that have been accumulating on my DVR. However, one thing I started watching on Wednesday was Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. I’ve only watched the first 2 episodes, but I’m hooked. So, my plan is to that tomorrow.

This weekend, it’s also Easter Sunday. I’m trying to decide if I should buy me a new outfit to wear to church on Sunday. I don’t need to, but I always try to embrace moments that can justify buying new clothes. If I do, I would love to find a 2-piece outfit in pretty pastel color.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Nightstand Books #1

Books have always been a love of mine, even when I stopped reading as much as I used to read. However, I always have a book within reach. For example, I usually have between 4-5 different books on my nightstand. Some of these books are books I’m currently reading, next in line to read, and books that I read for moments of motivation. So, I decided to share my current nightstand books.

The book I’m currently reading and almost done with is the Anti 9-5 Guide: Practical Career Advice for Women Who Think Out The Cube. That’s such a long title for a small book.  I’ve been slowly reading this book for the past few months. However, don’t let that deter you from thinking that this book sucks, because it’s pretty good. It gives straight the point tips and ideas on how you can break away from you everyday 9-5 job. This book is loaded with advice from different women who have been able to break out away from the cubicle life. I only have a couple of chapters left, but I think I’m actually going to try to finish this up by this weekend.

eSTYLIST: Breezy Boho

The weather was so perfect this weekend, but I didn’t get to enjoy it as much as I would’ve liked. However, if I could’ve, I would have been all about casual bohemian vibes. When it comes to boho chic, I think about vintage pieces, billowy tops, and natural materials and hues. Here is a spring look with bohemian vibes I through together for the latest eStylist post.

The faster this year goes, the closer I feel to having a mental breakdown. Maybe it’s because I’m doing so much or trying to do so much, but all good things. This week, I spent some time focusing on  my inner happiness by acknowledging and removing unhappy things from my life. Thankfully, I didn’t have much in my life that makes me sad. When I removed some unhealthy people and situations from life a few years ago, I’ve been flourishing ever since.

If you are going through anything or feel like you’re sinking, it might be the things around you that are weighing you down. Even if it means you need to make a clean break from everything and start fresh, do it. You only have one life to live and you don’t need to live it with negative vibes. Good vibes only is more than a motto for me; it’s a goal.

Being mindful of all the good things in life, big and small, removes so much negativity from your life. I love feeling happy, stress-free, and grateful. Actually, those are the things I aim to feel everyday.

The weather is supposed to be picture perfect tomorrow. So, I decided that I’m going to fire up the grill and grill up some chicken, vegetables, and might attempt some kabobs. I’ve never made kabobs, but they are healthy and some so mouth-watering right about now. Anyway, here’s to a great weekend and let’s catch up some more next week. Smooches!
