Instant Mood Boosters

Everyone has bad days, or if you're like me you go through periods of days where it seems nothing goes right.Or maybe you've just woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Try these 5 simple practices and your mood will instantly change. 


Stop Criticizing- Thinking or saying critical things about others is an instant mood kill. Even if you don't say it and you just think it. It doesn't hurt or affect the other person, it hurts us. Next time, a critical thought runs through your mind, stop yourself.

Compliment- Compliment at least one person every day. But be genuine, don't say it to just be saying it. Not only will it make you feel better but it will make someone else's day.

Be Helpful- If you have a friend or family member who needs a helping hand, offer yours. Next time you have a friend in need offer to help them. It makes you feel good to help out your fellow mankind.

Say No- Don't let people can take advantage of your kindness. If you find yourself taking every extra minute doing favors for people, say no. It's great to help people but it's very important for us to have time for ourselves to maintain our inner balance. You should take at least two days a week to have time to do things you enjoy. Don't be afraid to say no. After all, your friend or relative who is constantly asking for the favors has other friends they can ask to help them out.

Be Thankful- I saw this wonderful tip on the Dr. Oz show, email yourself one thing that you are thankful for each day. Save these emails in a folder. When things are not going good at home or work, look at these emails and it will instantly make your situation better.


Let me know if you tried these tips and how they worked for you.

Best Pinterest Inspired Summer Hairstyles

Every time I need a little inspiration, I get on Pinterest. I love these hot weather hairstyles that I recently discovered while pinning. I hardly ever wear my hair down in the summer, my hair is really long, thick and black so you can imagine how hot it is. So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

H&M for kids

Both of my sons are very fashion forward. With that being said, before I had children I had no idea little boys are so concerned with their appearance. Or maybe they took after us, after all my husband and I put a lot of thought into what we wear. My oldest son Jackson is the worst. If he doesn't like what outfit I pick out for him, he makes sure to let me know. Jameson is the almost as bad, he has to have his hair fixed every time we leave the house. 

Like every other american, I love h&m. There clothes and accessories are super chic and very affordable. It wasn't until last week when I received an H&M catalog in the mail that I realized they sold little boys clothing(be still my beating heart). Like everything else from H&M, its super affordable(cha-ching)! 


These are my favorite looks for the spring collection for boys.


Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.
