Happiness

Everyone around me are so busy dealing with work,school, and their personal lives. Sometimes we forget to make sure we're happy. I am too at fault for this. I've always been the one to put my happiness aside for whatever excuse. Lately my main focus has been making sure I'm happy first before anything. I've noticed I'm not my best when I'm not happy. So, everyday I do something that makes me happy. Even if it's just having a quiet lunch for 30 minutes or doing my makeup in the morning. I suggest you to do the same. I love seeing people happy, so do something that makes you happy, if you aren't already. It doesn't have to be something major, it can be something small that doesn't require a lot of time. Below is a photo I found on Pinterest and I wanted to share it with you guys because it really touched me.

Vlogging Channel

Hello! As I mentioned on my last post I wanted to post more about my channels. So, I've been trying to post more on my Youtube channel with the hubbie at SammienTom. Recently, I've posted two or maybe even more vlogs since the last time I've posted on here. The recent vlogs are a little more personal than usual because I have started vlogging on my regular days rather than recording only on the weekends. I also met so many great people that are Youtube Vloggers as well and they are so supportive! I am so glad I've met them and I can't wait to meet even more Vloggers in the future. Down below are my recent vlogs and I hope you guys enjoy them! I would love feedback and if you have a channel, comment down below! Talk to you guys soon! :)

The Liebster Award.




I've recently been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Lorna. Lorna is the great mind behind her blog, Captivate the eyes. Check out her blog if you're interested in makeup/beauty, she does flawless makeup! I never heard of this award until Lorna has nominated me in it. However, I am very honored she did, so I would like to thank her again. :) 


 ↓ Now on to her questions!  


          1. Where do you currently live? Are you originally from this country?

- I currently live in the Nashville area in Tennessee, the heart of country music. I am from the United States of America (USA). Born and raise in Tennessee. :) 

 2. When did you start blogging? What was your first blog post about? Who was the first person to comment on your blog posts, that was not part of your family, or your friends? 

-I started blogging in October 31, 2013. My very first post was about a little introduction about me.
3. What motivated you to start blogging? Is this motivation still driving you to blog? Or, is there something else motivating you now?
-The main reason why I started blogging was because I wanted to express myself on things I enjoy. While at the same time connecting with people with the same interest.  - I'm still motivated with the same reason. :)
 4. How would you best describe your make up preferences? Do you like your make up dramatic, or more on the natural side?   

-I'm a simple person when it comes to daily makeup. So, for everyday makeup, I would go on the natural side. However, I don't normally wear makeup everyday because I never have time in the morning. But I do love occasional dramatic makeup! :) 
5. What is the first make up product you ever used? Fast forwarding to the present, do you still use the same brand and the same product?
-I don't remember the brand, but it was eyeliner. It was one of those that you had to sharpen. I do not use it now in the present, though. 
   6. Name your top 3 bloggers. Who are they, and what attracts you to read their blogs?
-Gosh, I may seem like a pretty bad blogger, but I honesty do not know many bloggers. So, I just read the very few blogs I follow. I mainly follow people with fashion, makeup, and beauty related stuff. 
7. What is your Favorite beauty/makeup related product? What makes this product your absolute favorite?

-I LOVE the Olay under eye cream! I'm not even sure if that is what it is called, but I absolutely love it!  I feel like it ACTUALLY works on my creases, especially for the price. It works wonders on day I haven't had any sleep.
 
 8. What is your best and worst feature about yourself?

-I would say my best is my hair. I like how fast it grows, how thick it is, and that it's naturally straight. 
-My worst would be my height! I am 5'8, I wish I was a tad bit shorter. 
 
 9. If you could give advice to anybody wanting to start up their own beauty/makeup blog, what would you say?

-I would say go for it! If you REALLY want to do it, don't let anyone stop you. Not matter what others say, it is YOUR blog. Go for it! 
 
10. Fast forwarding five years from now, do you think you will keep blogging? If so, would you remain blogging about beauty products?

-More than likely I will. I really enjoy blogging, its fun and a great place to express myself. 
-I would probably blog about the same stuff I do now, beauty/fashion.
 
 11. Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?

-In reality, maybe either in Pharmacy School or just starting Pharmacy School. Unless something else gets thrown my way. :)

Lets Talk About Working Out.



Hey guys! I don't really talk about my Youtube Channel on my blog much, but I would like to start mentioning it on here. The reason being is because I would like to talk a little more about behind my videos. 

Recently, I made a video about working out and It's about encouraging others to work out. 
Some may or may not know that I've always struggled with my weight all my life. I have finally got to a point in my life to where I am accepting who I am and working on improving myself. Let me know if you guys would like to hear the whole story about my struggle with my weight.

Below is a video where I talk about ideas on beginning to a healthier lifestyle and encouraging anyone who is thinking about making the change. I'm planning on making more videos about health related videos in the future. I hope you guys like this video and would like to see more videos like this! Please let me know what you guys think of this video. I just wanted to share ideas and my journey that helped me along the way. Join me on my journey! :) Thanks so much for reading, I'll talk to you guys soon!
