DEALING WITH FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL ANXIETY

Hi everyone!!!  I hope you all have had a lovely week and weekend.  Today is Sunday...my favorite day.  (:  Probably because it is my only day off now.  LOL. Todays post is going to be a bit of chit chat in regards to dealing with anxiety from the start of school.   I just started school myself!  I go three days a week for 10 hours each day and every other day I go to work for 8 with only one day off.  So yeah I am dealing with a lot of emotions right now and I am sure that a lot of you out there are doing the same.  For me I just keep telling myself, "It is only for like 6 months.  I can do this." Yes it's hard and yes it's stressful and scary but this only lasts for such a short amount of time in your life.  Wether it be gradeschool, highschool or college.  You get to meet so many amazing people and you learn so much.  Just take deep breaths and know that you will be amazing. I like to use a calendar or agenda and count down the days!  I loooove to count down the …

MY AUGUST IPSY BAG!!!

Image
Heeeellllloooooo my friends! Today I am sharing another amazzzzzing IPSY bag with you!


I love the "back to school" look of this bag.  Does this remind anyone of the movie Clueless?!  The bag is nice though.  It's textured and very durable.  Could possibly even make a cute pencil pouch for when I start school???

Here are all 5 products that I received! The first product (starting from the left) is the BWC leave in hair conditioner.  BWC stands for Beauty Without Cruelty which I think is amazing.  (:  This product though!!!  I literally cannot wait to buy a big thing of this.  Seriously makes my hair feel so freaking soft and shiny and sleek and it is also detangling.  I mean what more could I want.  Maybe a yummy fragrance?   The next product is the OZ Naturals Amino Herbal hydration mask.  This mask is nice!  It goes on as a clear gel and you can let it sit for like 30 minutes and it really hydrates the skin.  I feel like my face is drinking the product.  Lol.  That sou…

EXCITING NEWS!!!

Hey hey heyyy!!  Hope you are all having an awesome start to the weekend!!
So I got some exciting news a while ago that I just haven't really shared with anyone yet.  I was accepting into the Cinta Aveda Institute here in SF for Esthiology!  I could not be happier.  It was kind of a random thought that came to me..."hmmm maybe I should go to school to become an esthetician?"  And boom.  Here we are!
Esthiology is the understanding of beauty and wellness.  I really do have a passion for skincare and working at LUSH has furthered my interest.  I actually will be beginning school in like a couple weeks!  I cannot wait to learn new things and further my career.  I promise that I will keep you guys updated as much as I can...I am going to be one busy bee for the next 6 months.  Yes, my school program will only be 6 months long!
I am also excited to be able to share all my tips and tricks with you guys when it comes to skincare and beauty products so stay tuned!
Thanks for re…
