clearing out my makeup

vanity 6.jpgHey everyone this weekend i spend my day at home decluttering & organizing my makeup. My makeup vanity/desk is the one place that i can’t keep up. One day is super clean then i get ready and it looks like an explosion happen. I knew i had to do a makeup declutter i have a lot of makeup that was not getting used and expired. To be honest i thought i was going to get rid of more makeup than what i actually got rid off, but hey at least is a start. Before i used to be such a hoarder when it came to makeup i will just keep buying and buying until i realize i only have one face wtf am i doing with so much makeup? This habit of purchasing makeup left a hole in my pocket because i don’t know if you know, but makeup can get expensive. Now i try to keep my makeup to only items that i absolutely love and use.

Hola a todos este fin de semana, me pase el día en casa organizando mi maquillaje. Mi tocador / escritorio es el único lugar donde no puedo con el desorden. Un día está súper limpio, entonces me preparo y parece que ocurrió una explosión. Sabía que tenía que hacer un declutter de maquillaje. Tengo mucho maquillaje que no estaba siendo usado. Para ser honesta, pensé que iba a deshacerme de más maquillaje del que realmente me deshice, pero al menos es un comienzo. Antes me gustaba tener mucho maquillaje, seguía comprando y comprando hasta que me dé cuenta de que solo tengo una cara. ¿Qué hago con tanto maquillaje? Este hábito de comprar maquillaje me dejó un agujero en el bolsillo porque no sé si lo sabes, pero el maquillaje puede ser caro. Ahora trato de mantener mi maquillaje solo para los artículos que amo y uso absolutamente.

this is the before, everything ends up on the table fill with clutter and the drawer end up with makeup not in its right place. Just shove in there that’s what happens when im rushing.

este es el antes, todo termina en la mesa lleno de desorden y el cajón termina con maquillaje no en su lugar correcto. vanity 3

I start by taking everything out and cleaning the dividers because they can get so messy. This usually takes me some time because i start playing with all the makeup to see what i want to keep or toss. I put music on, drink my ice coffee (or wine, depends on the time of day)  and just enjoy the process of cleaning and organizing.

Empiezo por sacar todo y limpiar los separadores porque pueden ensuciarse mucho. Esto generalmente me toma algo de tiempo porque empiezo a jugar con todo el maquillaje para ver si quiero mantenerlo o tirarlo.vanity 7.jpg

Three Helpful question to ask yourself to declutter your makeup

  1. Have i used this within the past 6 months?
  2. Will i use this soon?
  3. Does it fit my style?

If the answer is no then just get rid of it. If is in good condition and not expired i usually past it down to my family like my sister or cousin.

Tres preguntas útiles para preguntarte a ti mismo para limpiar tu maquillaje

  1. He usado esto en los últimos 6 meses?
  2. Usaré esto pronto?
  3. Es mi estilo?

Si la respuesta es no, simplemente deshazte de ella. Si está en buenas condiciones y no expirado, generalmente se lo entrego a mi familia como mi hermana, prima.

Setting Goals For 2019

planner 5.jpg

Hello everyone, well another year that’s coming to an end. I am still in shocked at how fast this year went by. I am so glad its over, 2018 was an interesting year. Lets just say, It was a year of growth for me. To realize that when things fall apart is just to make room for the new that is coming in. I have learned a lot of lessons and had some major epiphanies. Something i am very into is personal development, I have learned so much about myself ever since i started taking time and getting to know myself more and allowing myself to want more. I realize this year that i was the one holding myself back.

Now i am planning my goals for 2019 i am so excited! I have never talked about the Laws of Attraction on my blog but this is something i have being studying for the last two years of my life. Learning how we can create our own realities based on our thoughts. During this year  2018 i finally manifested something that i wanted in my life now i have no doubt this really works.

      Books about the Laws Of Attraction

  • The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
  • Ask And It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Now that i know this, is time to plan for an amazing 2019.  Time to think and set goals for new year. The way i plan out my year is by visualizing on the top ten things that i desire most in my life right now. I let myself get creative, think big, don’t hold anything back. (before i used to hold myself back, Not anymore)  I write it out  and i plan the month according to my goals. In order to accomplish your goals you must do the work first. This is the hardest part when it’s time to get focus and stick to your goals no matter what life is throwing at you. So discipline is very important. This is something that i struggle with, keeping discipline with my plans and maintain a balance in life. This is why i  also schedule/ or leave room in my planner to chill with friends. (I tend to neglect my friends i’m getting better at this)  I also leave room in my schedule to sometime just lay in bed and do absolutely nothing ( this is one of my fav hobby not sure if is good or am i just super lazy lol ) This is why i need a planner in my life because i set time for the important things. It keeps me on track with the things i must do and the things i am doing. I am able to see how many times i worked out during a month. Which is so helpful, because it allows me to see an almost like birds eye view of my month. If i have to many days with no workout i am able to see and say hey enough with the excuse i have to go to the gym. It really motivates me to start again and it helps me realize what have i been doing too much of and little of during the month.  The planner also helps me keep track of my habits because i am writing down the things that i am focusing on and doing daily.

” SETTING GOALS IS THE FIRST STEP INTO TURNING THE INVISIBLE INTO THE VISIBLE”

  • think of the top 10 things you desire in life ( write it out)
  • plan your month/ week/ day according to your goals. Always make sure you do one thing a day related to your goals.
  • follow up with your planner DAILY
  • this is my personal preference i love to decorate my planner make it super cute since it is something i used daily might as well make it cute/fun.
  • MAINTAIN  A POSITIVE ATTITUDE ( more on this on another post coming soon)

My love for summer and new beginnings

My love for summer and new beginnings

 

Hello everyone, today I wanted to get a bit more personal on my blog and shared some of  the things that have been going on in my life lately.

IMG_3149

Is memorial day weekend which means summer is here yay. summer is my favorite season. I love everything about it, going to central park and enjoying the beauty of all the greenery we have around us. In the summer the days are longer. Everyone just want to have a good time, people seem happier. Everyone is outside enjoying the weather. living in nyc we don’t usually have backyards ( if you do consider yourself lucky) so everyone loves to chill outside on the block. In the summer the layers of clothes come off and summer fashion takes over. beautiful flowy dresses, denim shorts, cute tops, and you can actually wear cute sandals. l love summer because my birthday is during the summer also. This summer I have a feeling is going to be great I really do plan to enjoy it. As for me getting personal a lot has change in my life and well change is scary but it was change that needed to happen. I was working a 9-5 job that I hated it and made me literally sick to go to the place where my health started to take a toll. At first I thought I was being weak but after putting up with this job for a year I finally reached my breaking point and quit. I started getting depressed and anxiety took over oh boy. My weight even suffer. When I started the job I was in the best shape of my life.  As time when on stress started getting to me I notice I didn’t have the motivation or the will to push myself to go to the gym. My eating habits took a turn for the worst and all of this because I was so stressed out and so unhappy with my work life. Which brings me to the famous Steve Jobs quote “the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet keep looking don’t settle.”   I was doing great work but I hated it.  I dislike the company value and even my co workers it was hell. This quote made me realize something hey im still young this is not the end. After months of planning I saved up and I quit. It was the best decision I made in my life to trust myself and know that I deserve more and I will find it.  After I quit my job I was happy but the feeling of the unknown took over and boy did it scare me, it paralyzed me to the point where I wasnt even being productive. I didn’t have the energy to look for a job and didn’t really have the confidence to go to job interviews. But is time now its been 2 months of sitting home and having major freak out about my future I finally have the will to go and get hired. I don’t really know the point of this blog I just wanted to share that. Sometimes when we are not happy with our life it is up to us to make the change and as scary at that is, it must be done. This is going to sound a bit odd but I consider myself a bit odd it’s like for once in my life I am following the tiny voice in my heart. My intuition was screaming quit but I was in denial you know because well I need money to survive. Now that I started listening to it the more I learn to relax and just go with the flow of life. ( I mean I have my freak outs at times im only human)

Winter blues and sparkly boots

Winter blues and sparkly boots

Hello everyone, I can’t believe I took such a long break from posting. New Years came and life out of nowhere got a bit hectic. Well not really life but my state of mind. I became super lazy my eating habits got out of control eating out and I was just in a bad funk. I don’t know if is the cold winter here in NYC that got me down but something happen. I wasn’t feeling happy and always felt very moody. I started feeling super guilty because I felt I wasn’t being productive my diet went downhill, I gained weight ugh. I’m so over work and the lack of exercise oh boy let’s not even go there. I even notice I stopped caring about my style and overall personal appearance. It was a major winter blues. But the more I kept up with this behavior The guiltier I felt it was not good. I decided to give my routine a change as much as I despise winter I can’t make that an excuse to just give up on life right. I started waking up earlier to make time for gym before work. I’m trying to get back to my healthy diet it has not been easy you guys the struggle is real but we must push on. I did manage to go out last weekend with my friends this is what I wore high waisted jeans and black turtle neck my all time fav! But what I love about this outfit is of course is the disco balls on my feet. It was love at first sight when I saw these booties in the clearance section of H&M omgggg sooooo cute, so sparkly with a low heel and pointy I mean it was meant for me and on clearance for $10 Thank You Universe lol

Hola yo sé que es tenido el blog abandonado pero ya es hora de empezar y dejar la flojera. Desde que llegó el 2018 me a estado sintiendo súper floja y no motivación para nada. Digo que fue el invierno que me tiene si gana de nada. La salud y las ganas de ejercitarme y comer saludable se desapareció. Pero el invierno no se puede usar como para dejarme ir y abandonar la vida. Decidir de cambiar la rutina y despertarme un poco más temprano para poder tener tiempo y ir para el gimnasio antes del trabajo. Echarle más ganas a mi dieta comer más saludable para tener más energía. No es fácil pero cuando uno hace cambios a los primeros días nada es fácil. Si viven en lugares que hace mucho frío como se están pasando el invierno? Este fin de semana salí con unas amigas, unas de mi únicas salidas este mes. Este fue mi outfit jeans, suerte de tortuga en negro pero mi favorito son las botas aka bola de disco. La botas tienen tanto brillo que me a recuerdan a una bola de disco. Me la compre en H&M y estaban en oferta por solo $10 increíble fueron echas para mí.

Happy New Years

Happy New Years

 

Happy New Years everyone! I have a feeling this year is going to be amazing. I spend New Year’s Eve with the family we love to get dressed up and ring in the New Years partying. There was a lot of music, good food and a lot of drinks. I am so happy 2018 is here I have so many things I want to accomplish. 2017 really kicked my ass and with that comes a lot of lessons learned. Now that I am wiser and I am becoming more clear on what it is that I want out of life. The only way for me to make 2018 my bitch is to work towards my goals and stay focused I tend to beat myself up when shit hits the ground lol. Cheers to a new year!!

What I am wearing: velvet romper from Old Navy, shoes Calvin Klein, silk robe some random store for $4

Hola, feliz años nuevo! Yo sé que este año vas hacer un año muy bueno. El 31 de Diciembre me la pase en fiesta con la familia. Mucha comida, música y bebidas. Fue súper divertido! Tengo muchas metas para cumplir este año. 2017 no fue un año tan fácil para mí, Pero si aprendí muchas lecciones de la vida. 2018 eso va a cambiar estoy dispuesta a hacer este año el mejor.
