Made a big purchase…


Breville cafe aroma


Well, it’s been a while since I last posted and boy did I miss this blog. I took a break from blogging because I thought that I needed a break from everything. Ever since then, a lot has changed for me. I got a new job, and started going to the Gym and lost 8 pounds so far and am on my fourth month since I started. I also got the urge again to post on my blog because I am excited about a big purchase that I made. I bought an espresso machine! I just though that I should share this because coffee has been an important part of my life. BUT I feel like I have been spending too much money on lattes and capuccinos at Starbucks and Second cup. They are great cafes mind you but I just fee like I have been visiting them more than I should. Last night I did some budgeting on my favorite budgeting app (Mint) and it told me that I had spent $350 on fast food for the last month ! Now I have learned to be more cautious about my money recently and could not turn down the opportunity to save on some money. So I bought an espresso machine! It’s by Breville and it’s called the Breville Cafe Roma Espresso Machine. I am so excited about this purchase because now I can save almost over half of the amount of money that I spent on fast food.

I was MIA

Hello everyone and welcome again to my blog. Now I know that I have been MIA and while I was MIA I have found a new hobby. Can you guess what it is? It’s exercising. Back then I had been going to the gym about twice a week and in all of that I had not been getting any results. Then one day I got on facebook and started browsing members ect. checking to see if I knew any of thes people. Then I saw a lady with a before and after picture of her fitness documentary. It was a huge transformation, I mean in the before picture her belly was huge and round like a basketball, and then her after picture was back to it’s normal size. So I sent her a private message and she told me about beachbody and how she stopped going to the gym anymore. She was actually a beachbody coach and didn’t mind helping me out. Anywayz, later on I went to the beachbody website and there they gave me the app to use for the workouts. And ever since then I have been hooked on exercising and taking care of my health. As a matter of fact I have already lost 2 inches around my waist ad I started back in March of this year. Now I workout everyday as I am trying to loose some of my unwanted belly fat and will hopefully loose some more weight, and I will keep you all updated on that in the future.

The Elements of Beachbody

eau de parfum



The elements of beachbody

exercise: exercise has become so important to me. I used to be really skinny growing up and tried to gain weight ( which is also known as bulking) So I started eating more than usuall and started gaining weight to the point werher I put on some belly fat. Now that I am following the beachbody programs, my weight has decreased. So I would definatley recommend this product to anyone who wants to loose weight because it works.

food: Right now I am currently doing intermittent fasting. This involves not eating for long periods of time ( hence the word fasting) Instead of meals I take protein shakes as a food supplement which can also help you to loose weight.

Clothes: When it comes to exercising I made sure to invest in some decent gym clothes that are affordable . My favorite store at the moment is Ardene, they have some great priced products dedicated to active wear.

Motivation: This is the foundation of working out and finding the reaons to work out. Finding your motivation can be hard but this can help determine if you are going to get the job done to workout. One of the celebrities I look to is Kenya Moore, she is a former miss usa and is also very fit. When I look at her pictures it gives me the motivation to work out. Another source of motivation is by looking at fashion models they always insipire me to work out because I want there bodies.

Goals: Some of my major goals that I have set for myself is to loose 1 inch off of my waist every month and be back to normal from cutting no later that february 2019, that way I will have enogh time to loose the weight.

Mac Velvetease lip pencils

I went to The Bay recently and noticed that they have these new lipsticks that look like lipliners, and they were called velvetease lip pencils. What was so different about these pencils is that they are almost like the lipstick crayons that you would find tinted lipgloss in. But it was a cross between lpistick and lipliner all merged as one. They were on sale for around $20 and I fould a really nice strong red color and later decided to buy. I later realized that the ilp pencil gives you a matte look and the pigment is so strong that it can last all day. I usually where it alone and one time received a compliment for it when I went to buy a cup of coffee at starbucks the other day. I would probably buy this product again because I loved the color and the matte look that it would give. But I have to complain that it was kind of expensive and the stick wasn’t that long and I wouldn’t be getting my money’s worth. I am not sure if they are still available at mac anymore but they are available on ebay. Here is the link to purchase MAC Velvetease Lip .

St. Ives Apricot Scrub


A great way to unwind after a hard days work would be to change into your pj’s and maybe take a shower. Another great way would be to wash your face. One of my favorite kinds of cleansing agents is st. Ives apricot scrub. I find that it is a gentle yet effective cleasing scrub with the right amounts of exfoliants. This is something that you can use maybe once a week because it acts as an exfoliant and can be harder on the skin if used too often. Currently st Ives apricot scrub can be found for around $ 7.00 at Amazon. Or at a drugstore near you.

Let’s Talk About Makeup


L’oreal Paris is now advertising their infallible eye paints metallic eyeshadow. My review on this product is that they have some really nice colors. The colors that they have on display are very appealing to the eye. They come in a nice rosy color which can be paired with some metalic colors that are avialbale in the marktet. Metallics such as gold and other colors that have a metallic undertone work well with l’oreal paris’ infallible collection, and they are on sale for $10 each.
