Self Esteem tips

Self esteem is vital for all humans. It's how we value and view ourselves. Having high self esteem can help you accomplish anything. Life is very hard sometimes. Going through a lot of hard times and having a lot of  negative experiences and making it out, has taught me  how to gain the self esteem I have now. So I would like to share with you some tips and things I practice to boost my self esteem:




1)Give yourself daily affirmations- This one may sound silly but compliment yourself! Find something about yourself, try not to focus on looks, but something that you know is true about yourself. Such as 'I am a good mother' or 'I am really good at my job'. Get in the habit of complimenting yourself daily.

2)Switch your way of thinking- This one is so very important in gaining confidence and self esteem. Stop negative thinking. For example, If you think 'Could this day get any worse?' It will get worse because you are sending that negative energy out into the world.  If you can retrain your brain into turning all your negative thoughts into positive thoughts about yourself, others and the world in general, it can change your life. Next time a negative thought comes into your mind, stop it and replace it with a positive thought.  

3) Check your motives- If your only having positive thoughts and a good attitude so you can gain something that will hurt yourself or others, nothing good will happen to you. 

4)Learn from your mistakes- A mistake doesn't mean your a failure. Learn from your mistakes and don't repeat them.If necessary forgive yourself and definitely don't let the past consume you. Move on. 

5)List at least 10 - 20 positive affirmations about yourself. Look at it when your feeling down or your day isn't going as planned. Over time you can add more to the list. It's wonderful to send positive energy to the world, but it's necessary to give it to yourself. 

I hope you found my tips helpful. If you have any tips on how you boost your self esteem list them below.

  3. Some really great tips in there! I know I don't have trouble with self esteem, more so I work on being a better person or staying fit for myself. Not really what other people think. But I struggle with self confidence, and I think these tips work either way. Thanks for sharing :)

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.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on sephora.com. I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.


The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:


Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
