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.

  • 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)

Time to get in shape

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share one of my goals that I am working towards and that is loosing this depression weight. As I shared on my last post how I gained so much weight due to me feeling down. I am happy and so focus on my life and I need to loose this weight. I have my closet full with so many cute clothes and I can’t wear them because they don’t fit. I lost a lot of weight and got in the best shape of my life and a year later I have gained all the weight back. At first I was super upset with myself but I have come to accept it, this year has been a roller coaster. Now is time to hit the gym and start focusing on becoming more healthier. So join me on this journey I will be keeping my blog updated with my progress. I would tell you how much I weight right now but then I will have to kill you lol how about let’s just leave that for when I actually hit me goal it will be less embarrassing then.

Hola, hoy quería compartir una de mis metas con las que estoy trabajando, y es perder de peso. Como compartí en mi última publicación, gané tanto peso debido a la depresión y por descuidarme. Pero por fin ahora me siento súper bien pero necesito perder este peso. Tengo mi armario lleno de tanta ropa bonita y no puedo usarla porque no me quedan. Perdí mucho peso y estuve en la mejor forma de mi vida y un año más tarde recuperé todo el peso. Al principio estaba muy molesto conmigo mismo, pero he llegado a aceptarlo, este año ha sido una montaña rusa. Ahora es el momento de ir al gimnasio y comenzar a concentrarme en estar más saludable. Así que únete a mí en este viaje, mantendré mi blog actualizado con mi progreso. Te diría cuánto peso en este momento, pero luego tendré que matarte jajaja, ¿qué te parece si dejamos eso para cuando realmente me acerque a la meta? Así no me da tanta vergüenza!

My story with depression

Hello everyone, today I wanted to talk about something a bit more personal and that is the topic of depression and mental health. This summer was a crazy one for me and no I don’t mean the good kinda crazy, it was a depressing one. For the first time in my life I suffer from a depression. I thought I been depressed before but this time it was like no other. I was actually going through a depression from back in December and little by little it kept getting worse. I was working a job that drained my energy and it took a huge toll in my life. I wasn’t feeling like myself at all, I stopped caring about me. I was neglecting my needs and my desires. I started to neglect my appearance. I stopped working out, I never had energy to do so. I even stopped my vegetarian diet and I started eating junk food, that was not good for my body. Eventually I gained weight which let to me feeling more depressed. My days consisted of me being in bed in the dark I did not want to be seen, feeling super low. Eventually something in me had enough of  feeling sorry for myself and that’s when things started to shift. I started to read and educating myself on the topic of depression. I honestly don’t agree on how the western world handles depression, I knew pills was not going to fix me. It was something internal that I needed to acknowledge something with myself.  I started self reflecting asking myself very difficult question. Until I finally realized why I was feeling so down because I was not happy with the life I was living. I felt that my soul was guiding me to make changes and I was very resistant to those changes.

Now I can say that those hard times made me self reflect so much that I am actually happy that it happen. I mean I can say that now, but when I was going through it I could not see the light I felt I was stuck in darkness for forever. We as humans have to deal with so many obstacles and hurdle in life that is going to take a toll on us. I really felt that I was so unhappy and dealing with so much pressure and stress that my soul just wanted a time out to recuperate from life. I feel very blessed that I was able to unplug (quit life) for a short time and just take care of me. Once I started to listen to myself my intuition, things got better. It was like the cloud open up and let the sun shine on me again. Is not like my life change drastically no, but my mental did. I started to feel happy, I felt joyful again. By practicing gratefulness it made me realize how lucky and blessed my life is. I was focusing on the wrong things before which let me to so much unhappiness.  I also learned to accept that life is not always rainbows and sunshine we go through difficult moments in our life but that’s just a part of life to get us to grow become stronger and wiser. 

(if you are going through depression right now and cant handle it on your own please go get help or talk to someone)

Things I did to help me during my depression.

* study depression

* self reflection/ journaling

* meditate

* become more grateful/ gratefulness attitude

* Get rid of the entitlement mentality.

* spent a lot of time alone in nature (Central Park)

* surround myself with people that I love and love me (my family)

* watched/ listen to motivational speakers on you tube
