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!!

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.

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!!

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!!!

I Love Fall Tag

I absolutely love Fall!!!  I look forward to it each year, I thought I’d do this I Love Fall Tag that I found on sincerelyshania‘s blog, so go check her’s out as well!!  The other reasons I decided to do this tag is one, because it’s fun and two, because I actually did not get a chance to plan out my posts this week because my cousin had her Quinceanera.  So let’s get right into the tag. Enjoy!

I Love Fall Tag

Sit Back Sunday #14

Happy Sunday!!!

My week started out great as it was my birthday on Monday.  My boyfriend took me out to eat that day and my sister and cousins bought be a delicious cake! I loved all my gifts but my two favorites where a light up mirror that Anthony got me, it makes applying makeup so much better!! The other one was a video of my little cousins from Mexico, they sang “Las Mañanitas” to me, which is almost like the Happy Birthday song.  Their mom uploaded that video on Facebook on my wall and it truly made me happy!

Sit Back Sunday

This week was also kind of busy, I felt like I was out and about all the time!   Continue reading

22

Some of you may know that my 22nd birthday was on Monday!  I didn’t do anything big, I just spent the day with my family and boyfriend.  I, of course, had to start the day off my listening to Taylor Swift’s 22!! The night before my birthday I made a playlist for my birthday, it was mostly up beat songs but it also featured some of my favorites that weren’t as upbeat as the other songs.

22

I had such a wonderful day on my birthday but it also made me think about a few changes that I want to work on.  I know that at 22 I am still young but I think it is also time to start developing good habits for later on.  Because of this, I thought I would make a list of things that I want to work on while I’m 22, so if you’re interested, keep reading.  Enjoy!!
