Life's Too Short To Feel Guilty About These Things

After a night of browsing around the Sephora and Ulta websites, wondering if I really needed a $40 CC Cream and three new makeup brushes, I decided to finally checkout my order. But after I made my purchase and uploaded a picture to my Snapchat talking about how bad I felt about my decision, I asked myself this simple question: Why did I feel guilty about buying something I enjoy so much?

23 Badass Organizational Tips from a Wedding Planner/ Multiple Business Owner + GIVEAWAY!

Remember Zahira Domenech? The destination wedding planner I interviewed a while back for a career profile?

Home Decor Wish List + Life Update!

If you follow me through social media you've maybe noticed that I've been kind of MIA these days. I have a slight tendency to shut down when I'm making big life decisions and right now my life has been quite hectic. I'm starting my masters degree in journalism in a week and have been house hunting with my fiancé for like a month now. So since this will be both him's and I's first homes, we've been researching and buying all the basics, like cutlery, bedding, pots and pans, etc. Basically everything that would be found on a wedding registry, since we've decided to postpone our wedding and once we have a registry it will be for a badass honeymoon, not pots and pans! Can you judge us? #Adulting

June 2016 Lifestyle and Beauty Favorites

This has been quite an interesting month. I got a brand new Filofax, discovered some awesome makeup products, got a tattoo, got into the best gym in Puerto Rico and booked a ticket to another place I’ve never been before. Oh, yeah, I totally made the tattoo thing a super normal thing but I’m still freaking out a little bit over that one.

 

Career Profile | Alex Beadon, Youtube Star and Founder of TheSparkLounge.com

About three years ago, I was having one of those sucky days when you just wake up feeling sad and unfulfilled with life - this is when I first found out about Alex Beadon. I was about to head out for work and I knew I needed some motivation. So I got onto Youtube and searched something along the lines of, “How to live the life you love” or “How to fulfill your passion”, or something similar when I bumped over one of Alex’s videos. The girl clearly knows how to SEO her content!

My First Time in California (Part 3: Los Angeles)

Finally! Part 3 of my California Roadtrip and I can't even believe it has been almost three months since I got back from the roadtrip of my life. It is no secret that I loved the west coast, but re-watching all these pictures makes me want to buy a one way ticket to LA! Weirdly enough I loved being surrounded by the spectacular lifestyles of the rich (and wannabes) and famous. It makes me have a little hope that the American Dream still lives, doesn't it? I like to believe we Millenials are re-inventing it, but that's a whole 'nother blog post!

8 Things You'll Learn After Going Cruelty-Free

I’ve been cruelty free for almost 6 months now and I can honestly say it has been a bumpy ride. I’ve read almost every article on Cruelty Free Kitty and stalked PETA’s Cruelty Free list many, many times but still, I’ve purchased brands that I thought were cruelty free only to find out they weren’t (I’m looking at you Jurlique Rose Water Spray!). Needless to say, I’ve become very aware of what I purchase because I really don’t want to support brands that agree with animal testing.

 

My First Time in California (Part 1: San Francisco)

After years of having visiting San Francisco on my bucket list, I finally got to do it! Plus, it was my first time in California ever, so I was dying for this new adventure. And to make things even better, I feel extremely grateful that I am at a moment in my life where I could actually take my mom with me and thank her for being an amazing mother for 25 years. So basically the best part about this trip was seeing my mom so happy and enjoying herself. It was a dream come true for her as well and she definitely deserved it. :)
