"Little Girls With Dreams Become Women With Vision" -My Dream/Vision Board

Hello, Everyone!
It feel like I long time has gone by since I've actually done a lifestyle post that I'm 100% in love with. The reason being that Lifestyle posts are generally the ones in which my true creative senses come out, and I love seeing the finished product play out to be precisely the way I envisioned it in my head.
That being said, I literally dedicated all morning into creating the perfect Dream/Vision board for myself.

I decided to hand write and place everything because I am an extremely visual person and I captivate ideas easier if I do it that way. The board in which I placed everything on was purchased from HomeGoods for about $15.

At the top of my Board I have Proverbs 3:5,6 which states that your should trust in God instead of relying on your own understanding and he will surely make your paths straight.
Right below that I have my subscriber Goals for Youtube, and "No Debt" reminding me to save more and spend less,
A jet setter sticker right next to the places that I want to travel to within the year 2015.

Next to that I wrote down five quotes that are guaranteed to make me feel better on a horrible day.

Below that I have some tips on how to be a successful Blogger that I cut out from a TeenVogue magazine as well as two cutouts. The first saying: "Haters Gonna Hate" because for every 1 person that supports me on this journey there are atleast 10 that dont.
And the Second saying: "I'm not going to be a prisoner in my room" referring to a life of ordinance that most people tend to live when in reality they should be going out there and searching for the next best thing. So, I strategically put a sticker below it that says, "Going Places"

And finally, next to that I have a list of Goals that I wish to accomplish, another list of things that I would like to buy, and a reminder of the three things that I would like to professionally categorize myself under.

I hope this post was useful to you in someway and that you got to gain some inspiration for your 2015!

All my Love, xxx

Colour Pop Cosmetics Haul | NEW Matte Shades! | Elizabeth Martinez

Hello, You beautiful Souls!

Sorry for the delay but I really wanted to wait until I got these to make a post about something I was REALLLYYYY excited about!
So here it is.
Colourpop Cosmetics, a Makeup brand based in LA whose products only cost FIVE DOLLARS. Recently came out with a new line of Matte Shadows. Up until last month The only shadows they carried were shimmers and metallics.
So naturally, when I heard that they were launching mattes I could barely control myself... one thing led to another and before I knew it I got an e-mailed receipt confirming my order.
This order would have come out to be $35 but when you sign up for their newsletter they send you an e-coupon for $5 off! So really it was like getting one for free so whatever you do, don't forget to sign up!!

I got a little scared when I opened the box because it looked like all of the shades were similar but thankfully when swatched they are COMPLETELY different. You'll see.

The formulation is out of this world and trust me your mind will be blown when you first touch them. These are the creamiest matte shadows I have ever played with. Yes, I said Creamy. AND, once the shadows set on your skin they literally don't move!

I have been sweeping my finger up and down the arm where all the swatches are (rather harshly) to see if the colors will budge, but I promise you that they have not.

I'll post a video tomorrow to actually show you but I have to say, I am really impressed.
Dare I say... but, I like these more than Urban Decay. Okay there I said it.

Here are individual pictures!
and Swatches!

Just wanted to mention really quick that I know that the fist swatch does not look very prominent but trust me, I tried to make it as noticeable as possible! You will never understand how much time and effort goes into shooting, and editing everything. So therefor, I apologize. Hope it doesn't stray you away from trying this AMAZING brand. I love supporting American Brands!

All my Love, xxx
