Tips and advice on moving

Hey Beauties! In my previous post I told you I was away because I was in the process of moving, but now that things have settled down quite a bit more I wanted to share some of the tips that I had after this experience.

  1. Organize beforehand- No one likes clutter, so why bring the junk and things you’ve been holding onto to your new house. It also makes is easier to unpack once you get to you new place. While you are at it go ahead and donate things you aren’t using to someone who can really use them.
  2. Call ahead for pricing – Whether you are using your local movers or doing what I did (having a couple of friends and my boyfriend rent a truck and move the stuff ourselves) you want to make sure you call ahead and budget properly so that aren’t hit with any surprises when it’s actually time for you to move.
  3. Clean – If you are able to get your keys early to your new apartment or home try to go in and do some cleaning before you actually move in. I just moved into an apartment and I know I can be a little OCD and I like things clean, but I unfortunately wasn’t able to get in any earlier and do any cleaning.
  4. Don’t wait – I know that moving is a tiring process but please don’t wait too long to unpack. I know when I moved everybody was hot and tired already. We waited a day and the following day I started to unpack because once again I’m a little OCD and I couldn’t stand seeing all of the boxes and bins everywhere. But if you aren’t OCD like me and don’t mind a lttle mess than you have to do what’s best for you.
  5. RELAX – This is the most important piece of advice that I could give. When I moved I was so excited because this was my first apartment but I was so stressed because we didn’t start on time. We had to move picking the moving truck up to the next day. Needless to say it was a very stressful weekend for me, but when I finally got time to relax on Monday(ha!) I could sit back and laugh and realize that everything works out. So if this is your first move or if you’ve done this before remember to breath and relax. Things are going to go wrong but it will be okay!

If you have any tips or suggestions for moving, please let me know! I’m sure it will be really helpful to me in the future and to others who are moving currently.

8.14.15

Hey Beauties!

So I have some great news to share with all of you, I know I’ve been talking so much about moving out and getting an apartment with my boyfriend but it is finally happening. We just got approved for an apartment and will be handed the keys on 8/14/15. I am so excited, this is my first apartment but I’m just excited because we will finally be closing the gap on this 4 year long distance relationship. It’s all so surreal to me, I was just stressing about this a couple weeks back and finally it is working out. I know we will have some challenges ahead but I’m ready to take them on together. If any of you are living on your own or with your significant other, what tips and tricks can you share with me? Leave them below.

Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Primer

Hey Beauties!

So I know I’m probably really late on this but I thought I would still share it with you guys. I was recently on the hunt for a really good primer that would keep me matte throughout the day. I have really oily skin and without a good primer I look like I just splashed water all over my face by the end of the day. So I have tried a few, some high in and some drugstore brand but nothing was really working for me. Either they would be too drying for my face or didn’t last long enough for me. So one day I went into Walgreens just to do some looking and I came across this Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, I was skeptical at first but I couldn’t argue with the price, so I thought why not. The first time I used it I fell in love, at the end of the day I still looked dry and fresh. It doesn’t have a scent which I like and it doesn’t feel sticky like some other primers I’ve used. It does say that you can use it before your make up, after you applied it, or even alone. I did try to use it without and it ended up being super drying so I would suggest against it. I haven’t tried it after applying my make up yet so I can’t really give my take on that, I might try to mix it together with my BB cream and see it that will make it last longer. I would definitely recommend this to the girlies that have to deal with oily or even combination skin for a long lasting matte look. Has anyone else tried this before? If so let me know how you liked it 🙂

Update !!

Hey Beauties,

I know I been MIA, I’ve been working like crazy and on my free time I just been hanging out with my friends and family. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about where I would like to see this blog go and I want to go beyond just blogging, I would eventually like to move into make videos and maybe even beyond that. But of course for myself I know I need to do one thing at a time, and that starts with this blog. I going to put as much time and effort as I can into make this blog the best that it can be, so you guys can expect to see more reviews, maybe some hauls and lookbooks for the summer. There will also be more advice on beauty, relationships and much more. Thank you for the new followers and the ones that still have been here with me even though I haven’t posted anything in a while. I would like to reconnect with a lot more of you, because I see your blogs and you guys are all amazing. I’m excited to  get back into this because this is what I love to do, and I will work my hardest to reflect that.

xoxo
