Epilepsy Awareness Recap

Are you just tuning in this week?  Well, don’t forget to check out my Epilepsy Awareness posts from this week since it is Epilepsy Awareness month.  You might be wondering why there is a picture of a purple butterfly, but this is what symbolizes Epilepsy.  There is a purple ribbon and purple butterfly.  I was talking about all things purple this week!  Read below for the recap links and I’ve also added links from last year’s theme.  

Also, if you'd like to take a look at the posts from last year just see below!

Belt:  Cavenders

Melaina’s Birthday

Yesterday was the Joey’s sister’s birthday.  She is officially legal!  Yesterday she turned 18.  I remember turning 18, that was ten years ago.  My goodness how time flies.  We went to eat Hibachi and I really love Hibachi, I just don’t eat it too often.  I got her this awesome pink real tree camo belt from Cavender’s.  I actually want one for myself but she’s the birthday girl so I had to let her have it!  Happy Birthday Lil’ M may this year bring you the best!

Update from last week

For those of you who read my blog last week was pretty rough for me.  I talked about how my strength is being tested especially over the last few months, and last week was just the icing on the cake.  Like I said last week, I won’t be going into detail about what happened, but I will say that things are getting better.  I have a positive outlook now and I’m going to continue going and showing life that it can throw as many curveballs as possible, I will NOT fall.

New body positive movement

Speaking of being positive, I wanted to start a little movement here on the blog.  Lately I’ve been starting to follow a lot of body positive people to lift up my spirits.  In order to continue with my journey to being more positive about what I look like I wanted to share my journey here on the blog.  I want to show women of all shapes and sizes that you are beautiful.  There are so many women that I know that are self conscious about their weight/look no matter if they are curvy, athletic, or super model thin.  So this will be for any woman who doesn’t feel positive about their body.  It has nothing to do with “curves are better” or comments like “eat a burger” because those are the things that need to be stopped.  Let’s be honest, sometimes those girls you say eat a burger too, actually try and eat more than just one in order to gain weight and they can’t.  Saying they look sick isn’t fair.  Every Thursday (excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas) there will be a new segment of this movement.  I’m not sure if it’s going to go on for a while or just a few weeks.  We will see how it goes.

New Concealer

You guys I found THE BEST concealer.  It’s more of a depuffer and I believe it’s not just Covergirl, it’s a collab between Covergirl and Olay.  I’ve only been using it for a week, but I must say it’s a miracle.  Before when I would use the CG Smoothers (it’s a creamy foundation) I would always have an issue with the under eye area and having my eyeliner smudge and make me look like a raccoon.  I try to stay away from the really expensive makeup just because I know if I start using it I won’t stop and I’m trying to budget myself at the moment.  Also, I only need the basics because I just need an everyday face.  With that being said all of my makeup is from drugstores or places like Walmart/Target.  I highly recommend this concealer if you are in the market for one, it is the best one I’ve tried.
