GLAMGLOW Glitter Mask Review

Image
Guys my brother got me the Glamglow glitter mask for Christmas! I was so excited when I opened it even though I picked it out lol (best brother ever). I have so many masks that sometimes I forget what I have. When I came back to San Diego after Christmas break I lost the mask in all the stuff I ended up bringing back. I recently found it and tried for the first time last week and tried it again this week. I'm writing this post so that anyone who was thinking about buying the mask can make an informed decision without the influence of a sponsored review.

I'm just going to write what I like and don't like about the mask so you can make your decision with some new information

Pros
Smells good - I'm not sure exactly what ingredient in the mask makes it smell the way it does but it has a fresh smell when you open the jar and apply the mask.Easy application - The mask comes with a small application brush that you dip in the jar and brush on your face. The brush makes the appli…

5 Tips to Follow through with your Fitness Resolution

Image
In a previous post, I shared my New Years Resolutions with you guys. One of my New Years Resolutions is to try new fitness activities. Many people make New Years Resolutions every year regarding fitness and health to start their New Year off in the right way. Some people want to try new fitness activities like yoga and others, new to exercising, make resolutions to start their fitness journey.  Starting a fitness journey can be tough, especially if you haven't ever had a fitness routine. While starting may be difficult for some, most people (including me!) have an even more difficult time keeping up with their fitness goals and give up or get discouraged shortly after starting. I understand these difficulties greatly as I struggled with them when I first started getting into fitness so I wanted to share some of my tips to make sure you achieve your fitness goals for 2018!

New Year Resolutions

The New Year brings a lot of excitement for a lot of people (including me!) because it gives everyone a chance for a fresh start and motivates people to make changes in their lives whether they be small or immense.  Change can be frightening but also exciting and can help you get out of any rut you may have had in the previous year. As cheesy as it is, I like to make New Year Resolutions every year to try to change some of the things from the previous year that did not go the way I planned and this year is no different.

Guys it is 2018! 2017 was interesting for me as I went through a lot a changes and trials. I turned 25 this year and with this milestone age came a change in my mindset. I am in my last year of law school and am 9ish months from hopefully starting my career and becoming a real adult! I can tell 2018 will be a big year for me whether I like it or not so I have made a list of "resolutions" to hopefully guide me and help me with my goals for the year!

The Best After Christmas Sales of 2017

Image
So Christmas is finally over :(. Every year there is so much build up for Christmas in the media. I mean stores start selling Christmas items right after Halloween! Stores online and in-stores have constant sales from the end of Halloween up until Christmas Day. After you give in and take advantage of those deals for your loved ones' gifts, to get them exactly what they wanted, you end up getting something you don't like or doesn't fit. Christmas is over but the best sales and deals have just begun!

After Christmas sales are the BEST sales to take advantage of! I consider them to even be better than Black Friday sales because stores (especially clothing/department stores) are trying desperately to move out old inventory to make room for new trends and products! Every year I try to take advantage of these sales.

Here are some of my favorite sales!
Bath & Body Works-- The Semi-annual sale is going on now! I really took advantage of this sale last year! Most of their produ…

12 Days of Christmas Workout

Image
Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year! Every year I come home to Merced, California where my parents live and spend Christmas time with my parents, brother, and extended family. One of my favorite traditions is making tamales with my family usually a week or two before Christmas. For those of you who do not know what a tamale is I will try my best to explain it to you. A tamale is a Mexican dish that is made with masa (dough-like substance) and some type of filling. To make them you spread the masa on a corn husk and then place the filling on top of the masa. Our family fills tamales with meat and olives. You then fold the corn husk on the sides then the bottom and cook them in large dutch oven.

But you can probably google the recipe if you're really interested in making them! But back to the point. Tamales are one of my favorite parts about Christmas butttt unfortunately they are not healthy at all! However, because I plan on eating an obscenely amount of them on Christmas…
