This or That: Summer Tag

Happy Monday!

I am currently in Mexico visiting my family so I wanted today’s post to be fun and simple.  I love answering tags so I thought I summer tag would be great.  I found this tag on LifeThroughTSG so make sure to check her’s out as well!!

This or That: Summer Tag

Out of all the seasons, summer is my least favorite because I cannot stand the heat (I live in Texas!).  However, I still try to enjoy the summer as much as I can.  Also, my birthday is in August so that’s awesome!  Anyway, let’s get right into the tag. Enjoy!!  Continue reading

Summer Fun

Happy Sunday!!

I am up pretty early this Sunday.  I have a candle lit and listening to a new album I just purchased – Being No One, Going Nowhere by STRFKR – so it’s a pretty great morning for me!  The “theme” for this Sunday’s post is Summer Fun because this summer has definitely been one of the most fun I have had in a long time!!

Playa VoxBox

Being signed up with Influenster has it’s perks!  It’s great for bloggers because every once in a while they will send out boxes called VoxBoxes and they come with free stuff that you get to try out and review.  I think this program is great because it lets you discover new brands and products!!  You can check them out here if you would like!!

The most recent VoxBox I have received from them is the Playa VoxBox.  This box contains two types of products that I love: beauty and food!!  Keep reading to see what all I received and my first impressions!! Enjoy!  Continue reading

Focusing on the Present

Happy Sunday!!

I was having a bit of trouble trying to think of a theme for this week and finally this morning I thought of one that perfectly sums up this week.  Focusing on the Present really summarizes my week because I caught myself getting overwhelmed about the future a lot this week!

Focusing on the Present

As many of you may know, I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree this May.  While I am super happy and proud that I reached such a huge milestone, it also means that I have to find a full time job!  The future can be super scary to think about but remembering to focus on the present really helps!!  Keep reading to see how my week went as well as how I cope when I start thinking too much about my future.  Enjoy!

Getting Organized

Happy Sunday!!!

Since graduating I’ve been feeling like something is missing.  Maybe it’s the structure of having to always be studying or working on a paper or project.  It kept me busy and helped me enjoy my down time a lot.  Now I don’t have that and basically go to work and then get home and chill.  Thursday morning I was going through my old pictures and when I got to the pictures I took during the Fall of 2015, I grew nostalgic.  I saw all the pretty pics I had taken for posts and missed keeping up Makeup & Flowers.

Getting Organized

I got up that day and started reading a very interesting post (Plan you Blog Content like a Boss by Laura Rebecca Jones) that changed my Thursday from a lazy day to a very productive day.  Keep reading to see how these two things shifted my week and views on my blog!!  Continue reading

Sit Back Sunday #17

Happy Sunday!!!

This morning is a rainy Sunday morning and, for me, that is a super awesome way to start out Sunday.  I love raining days, especially when I don’t have to do anything all day. This week was my first week that I am no longer a student, I work on campus so going to school after graduation was super weird!!

Sit Back Sunday

Keep reading to see how my first week out of school went. Enjoy!!!  Continue reading

Sit Back Sunday #16

Happy Sunday!!

I’m writing this week’s Sit Back Sunday late since I was hanging out with family earlier.  This week was surreal to me, it was my last week as an undergraduate!!! I took my very last final, which I made an A on (YAY!!) and then on Friday I walked across the stage.

Sit Back Sunday #15

Happy Sunday!!!

This week, I would say, was a perfect example of a college student in her last semester.  I had a few assignments due that I honestly did not want finish and my only motivation to finish those assignments was that if I don’t do them, then I don’t get to graduate!!

Sit Back Sunday

Keep reading to read my ups and downs of this week.  Enjoy!! Continue reading

Returning to Makeup & Flowers

Long time, no blogging!!!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on Makeup & Flowers!! There are a couple of reasons why I have decided to come back but one major reason is that I’m about to graduate with my Bachelors Degree and as that time gets closer, I feel the pressure of finding a job and in the process I can start to feeling lonely, if that makes sense.  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that doesn’t have a job lined up after graduation but at times it feels like that.  Blogging helps me feel a sense of belonging and also a sense of purpose since I’m doing something creative that I really like.

Returning

I decided to come up with a schedule in order to help me keep blogging longer than once or twice so here it is!!  Continue reading

Life Update

Hello!!!

It’s been quite some time since I have last posted!!  I had plans on being much more active on my blog but life happened!!  While blogging is something I really love, I haven’t had the best time management in order to keep it going.  The other major thing that happened is that I had to get surgery to get my appendix removed!  Because of this, I was unable to take pictures so I couldn’t really post anything new.

It’s been a month since I had the surgery and the semester is slowly coming to an end so I am happy to say that I will be posting regularly, starting today!! I have some changes in mind to some of the posts and of course, like I stated in my Fall Goals post, I want to start a YouTube channel.  I did say I would start that in November but I will probably start in December or January.  December would be a nice time to start because I would really love to post Christmasy videos.

I am super excited to get back into blogging as well as starting a new journey with YouTube.  If any of you have any tips as to first video ideas or really anything about starting a YouTube channel, please let me know in the comments!!

I enjoy sharing my love of beauty with you all and stay tuned because I will be posting a review later today!!!
