HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Being Vegan for the Past Month

Why-i-went-vegan

Hey, guys! So I DID the V-word! I went vegan!  I’ve never been a huge meat-eater, and I’ve been on and off vegetarian for years now, but a couple years ago if you asked me if I thought I’d be vegan, I would have said HELL no! I never thought that I would be vegan! I always thought that only super-strict, boring, crazies went vegan…until I did my research and realized how many amazing benefits there are to being vegan! It’s been one month, I’ve cheated 4 times, and I’m still considering myself vegan because that sh*t’s hard to quit (that sh*t being cheese). Becoming vegan is a huge lifestyle change,...

W E L L N E S S :: Skincare Game-changers

skincare-lifechangers

Hey, guys! As you probably know by now, I am just as obsessed with skincare as I am with makeup (and probably even a little more obsessed). I am always looking for the next best thing to take my skin to the next level, and a couple weeks ago I made a BREAKTHROUGH when I bought a facial cleansing brush and a silk pillowcase! Both of these things were way more effective than I thought they would be, and now I don’t think my skincare routine would ever be the same without them! Keep reading for full reiews of each product! – SILK PILLOWCASE – I’ve heard so many amazing...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Educating Yourself on Your Own Time

Hey, guys!  In today’s world, there are so many opportunities to learn, grow, and educate yourself! I once read a quote that said “successful people never stop learning” and it’s so true! Even if you think you’re an expert on a topic, be it cars, medicine, politics, fashion, hair, photography, or anything, you can always learn more. Keeping an open mind around your area of expertise is the only way to grow and eventually be one of the best! If you read a whole book and only learn one thing, that is one more thing you know! There is so much room for self-growth with that mindset! You may or...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Living your Best Life

Hey, guys! Today’s super quick post is about a trending phrase I have been hearing a lot of lately, which is “Live your best life.” “She’s living her best life” “He’s living his best life” “I’m living my best life” I LOVE this phrase because it’s so broad and it can be applied to anyone in any situation (that is, anyone who is living their best life). I think it’s the perfect one-size-fits-all statement because there are so many different versions of success and how to define when someone has “made it”, and not everyone strives for the same things. Everyone’s goals are different so “Living your best life” is...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Be the Reason a Stranger Smiles Today

Hey, guys! It’s been a minute! Yesterday while I was driving, I passed a store front with a sign that said “Be the reason a stranger smiles today.” and I loved it so much I knew I had to write a blog post about it! Today there are so many hateful things going on in the world, we need to make our own positivity! Making a stranger smile is so special because you don’t know what they’re going through, and they may have really needed that smile. So how the eff do you make a stranger smile?? Give them a compliment! There are a million ways to make a stranger...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Embracing your Qualities, Not your Flaws

Hey, guys! Today I want to talk about embracing yourself and embracing your best qualities, instead of focusing on your flaws! We live in a weird society where everyone is constantly spreading the message that “everyone is beautiful” and that we should “embrace our flaws”, and yet no one follows the rule for themselves? We’re all spreading this great advice, meanwhile, no one is listening to it for ourselves!! I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like my flaws -that’s why they’re called flaws. I know no one else views them the way I do, but it’s hard not to notice them when it’s a part of you!...
