Welcome Fall 2017

Fall is finally upon us. How many of you enjoy cold nights, wearing hoodies, and we cannot forget pumpkin spice lattes? To be honest, I love long summer nights, but I can use a change in weather and shorter days. Just like the trees get rid of dead leaves in the Fall we to must get rid of the things that cause us uncertainty. Letting go of unpleasant situations or toxic relationships is not easy, but never the least we can try to let go one step at a time. Picture your life without the things or people who make you unhappy? How much happier would you be?

For once think about your happiness and the changes you need to make to achieve that. We cannot depend on other people to make us happy. We are responsible for our joy. Engage in activities that make smile and feel good about yourself. I understand change is difficult but once you take the first step and you start to see some results you will have no regrets. Remember you are a worthy individual who deserves to be happy. It is time to let go and enjoy life. Happy first day of Fall and to the first day of change.

January Ipsy Glam Bag

Today I like to share with you what I got in the January Ipsy Glam Bag. So far I have been happy with the Glam Bags but to be honest, this is my favorite one so far. While I’m not too fond of the bank itself, I am ecstatic about the Items sent to me. If you do not subscribe to Ipsy, I would like to be click here for more information. For those of you who are not familiar with this subscription each month you pay $10 and receive five products including a bag. Many of us easily spend $10 on our lattes and if you are a make-up junkie like I am I highly suggest you give this subscription a try.

What came in my bag?

I received two facial masks which I am looking forward to using. These include the Loverecipe AcaiBerry mask and Loverecipe Aloe mask by Sally’s Box. I’m not familiar with this brand, but let me know if you are. Secondly, I received a ModelCo Blush cheek powder in Peach Bellini. Again this is an entirely new brand for me which is completely fine because I love to review new products and share them with you guys.  I also receive the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream with SPF 35. The only BB cream I love is the one by the Cover Girl if you have not yet tried it I highly recommend you. Especially if you an oily t-zone it keeps you matte throughout the day. I will be giving Matchbox BB Cream a try and I will keep you posted on I feel about it.

Another great product I received is the Rimmel London Lip Conditioning Balm by Kate Moss. This product is right up my alley I am obsessed with lip balms. It is important to keep our lips moisturize throughout the year but especially during the wintertime. Lastly, another great product I received and have not yet tried is the It Cosmetics Bye-Bye under eye illumination anti-aging concealer. As you can see this month’s subscription was great, I only wish the bad would’ve been a different color and with a 2017 logo symbolizing the new year. However, other than that I look forward to future subscriptions. Let me know what you got you Glam Bag this month. I look forward to reading your comments stay safe!

Where Have I Been

Hi Lifestylers,

Happy New Year! Yes, I know we are eleven days into the new year and where have I been? I had planned to blog daily for the month of December, but I was not able too. I decided to focus instead on future goals which I will write about soon. I spent time focusing on myself and reflected on everything that happened to me in 2016. I’m back on track and will frequently be posting new content. Subscribe for future notification of new posts. Follow me on IG for daily updates @lifestylewithterry

How I unwind

Hi Lifestylers,

Welcome back to Blogmas two! Today I like to share with you how I unwind after a long week during the holiday season. We live in a fast-paced world and sometimes we need to stop to appreciate the little things in life. To function in this fast-paced world, we need to indulge in self-care at least once a week. My favorite thing to do to unwind during this time of year is to watch holiday movies.

Netflix, a cup of coffee, and a facial mask are some of my favorite things to do.  Netflix has a good selection of holiday movies. Currently, we are experiencing what us Angelino’s considered cold weather (60 degree days). We are spoiled in California. Hydrating my skin if necessary to keep it looking young and healthy. These little things make a difference in my life and allow to relax. By the way, this post is not sponsored. How do you unwind? Share your thoughts with me. Please give this blog a like!

Count Down to Christmas

Hello, Lifestylers!

The countdown to Christmas has officially begun! I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year. Although I don’t enjoy the cold weather, there is something about Christmas that brings joy to my life. I like to focus today’s blog on Christmas cards. You may be wondering Christmas cards, Terry? Lifestylers we live in a fast-paced world where technology has taken over our lives. I’ll be honest I am guilty I’m using technology on a daily basis. However, I feel this time of year is about connecting with people we rarely spend time with throughout the year.

I take the time to send Christmas cards the old fashion way every year. This is something I enjoyed doing year after year it never gets old. It Is not only an inexpensive activity, but it brings joy to the person or family receiving the card. You can purchase Christmas cards at your local drugstore, Target, and Walmart.  I like to decorate the cards with Christmas stickers to give it an extra touch.  This year I spent less than eight dollars and that quite a bargain. I will start sending cards this week. Let me know if you enjoyed sending Christmas cards.  I will be back tomorrow with a new post.  Don’t forget to leave a comment and share with your friends.
