Hello April Featured

Hello April

Hey everyone, welcome back. Hello April. A whole new month for more goals to plan and opportunities to take a hold of. I have a whole somewhat list of what my goals are this month and what I want to achieve.

Hello April
Past March Goals

Last month I am happy to say I reached my goals of where I wanted to be. Before I get into how I reached my goals I just want to say I am really proud of myself. I did not reach over a certain number I wanted but I did reach in a place where I haven’t been in awhile and I got the amount of views I wanted. March was a great month for viewers since 2020 has started.

Now I want to point out that from since this pandemic has started it’s actually a time for bloggers to actually get views and for their blog to get SEO. A way I noticed my month got in a ton of views was a lot of search engine search’s being up. I am now making sure my blogs are getting pulled up from searches due to a lot of people being home now. And of course Pinterest too which also works as a search engine.

April Goals

Overall for April, I want to keep the same goals in mind. I want to again for this month to consistently keep writing and planning more blog posts. I also want to keep working on my SEO on all my blog posts. Too many times last year I haven’t got to put in effort for my overall views for the entire month. Therefore for this year especially now since am home and stuck inside I want to take advantage of the time and work on my overall blog and fix whatever needs to be improved.

In Conclusion

In conclusion, for my hello april post. I would just like to continue to encourage you all to keep making goals every month for your blog. Remember to take advantage of your spare time to continue to improve your blog. Hopefully for this month I can achieve the same amount of views for this month like March. Or even achieve more.

Spring Textiles & Patterns

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I hope everyone is well and is doing okay with the whole staying at home quarantine. Spring is approaching and that means new wardrobe picks and patterns. I decided to do a post on spring fashion patterns and my favourite for spring. One of the fun things about fashion is there is no right no wrong. Fashion is something you can play around with, pick what fits your style.

spring fashion

When it comes to changing season that means changing patterns. I feel like that’s the fun part about fashion is playing around with your wardrobe. I love pairing different patterns and textures together. I’m going to show the current patterns and textures am feeling this year.

Textures

Firstly for textures, one of the big trends I’ve been seeing is sheer. I am absolutely loving this texture and look. I love how classy it looks and the cross between sheer and denim or even pairing it with another fabric. With this trend I see it a lot with florals, especially on Zara. This is a great look for spring. I’m overall loving this trend, let me know in the comments if you’ve jumped in this trend and is already rocking it. Or if you’re going to be this spring.

Spring Fashion

That being the case for sheer, another great leading trend for spring is Pantone colours. I don’t know how to feel about this colour trend to be honest and that’s because am more of a neutral person. I’d stick more with the classics.

Pantone colors is spring fashion. This is a color trend that screams spring in all types of direction. So when it comes to pantone color it is a basic color scheme for color industries. For example beauty, interior decorating, textiles and apparel. After doing some fashion research the classic color for spring/summer 2020 is the classic blue.

Spring Fashion

Now some of the trends coming for the 2020 year, you can be seeing

  • Color Denim
  • Platform Shoes
  • Upcycled Denim
  • Safari Utility
  • Environmental Fashion
  • Bra Tops
  • Big Bags
Denim Fashion

What are some spring/ summer trend you all are loving this year? And what are some trends you feel should not be trending? What are your go to colors? Please let me know in the comments! Thank you all for reading today’s post, I will be also be having a post up tomorrow also for the last day of March. Please do so in liking, sharing and leaving a comment.

Why your nails are not growing!

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. For today’s blog post we will be talking about nails! Nails is a big thing going on now either your growing your nails or some are going for acrylic nails. But I know some women can be wondering why are my nails not growing? Hopefully I can answer some of those questions. I just would like to make a disclaimer that I am giving info I have learned personally from being an esthetican.

Disclaimer: In the name of full transparency, please be aware that this blog post contains affiliate links and any purchases made through such links will result in a small commission for me (at no extra cost for you).”

Giving a break

One of the things I’ve learned since working doing nails and being educated in school. It’s always good to give your nails a break. Just like our hair and skin even our nails need to be nourished. I think we often do not know the amount of stuff we do to our nails can affect its growth, color and strongness. Working as a nail technician at the time i always would get large amounts of questions on “why are my nails are not growing?” or “why is the color not healthy?“. Even to “my nails don’t feel as strong anymore”. And my first answer is “have you gave them a break?” or “have you used your cuticle oil?“. And it’s always a no we often forget that are nails need care too.

Causes & Effect

There can be a lot of causes to why your nails can not be growing. I can’t get into all of them but we can talk about the most common reasons to why they are not. The number one reason now a days to weakness I noticed is a lot of girls and women love to wear acrylic. There is nothing wrong with wearing acrylic, most of the shops are not properly using the right powder and the removal process they do is damaging your nails. Repeating this process over and over is weakness on overtime. The process of wearing acrylic and getting consistent refills and not allowing them to get removed and giving your nails a break also allows weakness.

Discolouration to nails can be a few things for the causes,but the number one thing I noticed to cause a lot of it is not wearing a proper under coat. Before applying any color to your nails you need to always apply a under coat. This protects the nails from the colour being applied. If no coat is being applied nails start to get a discolouration and sometimes might tend to look yellowish. Sometimes yellowish to nails can be start to nail fungus, I just want to make a disclaimer that am not saying you do have it. This would be something your doctor would have to confirm.

In other words, another service a lot of women don’t know they need a break from is shellac. Yeah shellac. It’s a popular service but if you don’t get it properly removed and keep your nails no riches then your nails can get weak. Proper removal is using the shellac removal foils and letting them fall off. This protects your nail plate. Also remember to always nourish it after getting them done. Apply cuticle oil, any oils that are good for nails and rubbing I this around the nail plate and cuticle area. This makes your shellac last longer and keeps your nails strong and your cuticles from going dry.

Effects

Overall, I know a big thing that bothers us is cracked cuticles, split nails, hang nails etc. But the causes to most of this is dryness. If you don’t overly apply oils to these areas daily it can lead to these issues. Another disclaimer when trimming your cuticles you don’t want to overly trim to much off because it will grow back faster and thicker. This is because are cuticles are there to protect and if too much is take off it will grow back.

Conclusion

In conclusion, following basic practices of nail care and giving your nails a break can impact a big change on how your nail looks and feels. Another great tip to helping your nails are also just taking vitamins and keeping up with drinking water. All of this can result in better nail growth. I hope my post helped you all, if you all have any questions on anything you can always leave a comment. Please like, share and comment!

How I Self care with two kids

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Another Monday another week to get through. For today’s blog post I decided to post about my mommy self care routine. I thought it was a great time to post this topic due to being stuck in doors with two kids. Being a parent I know during this time it gets a bit tough here and there. My one year old was so use to morning and afternoon walks, so it’s a big change on changing up her schedule. So here i’ll share my tips on and what I have been doing during these times to keep myself sane lol.

Self Care

My Favourite Self Care

  • Bath/Shower
  • Music
  • Blogging
  • Netflix
  • Nails
  • Youtube
  • Games

When it comes to self care, I always make a routine around what relaxes me the most. I always try and do this now and then because I feel like it rejuvenates me right away. I am also really big on self care and winding down because I feel like I suffer from low iron so am sometimes tired and feel I have low energy. Therefore because of this I always need to find new ways to help me throughout the day.

Self Care

Taking a bath or a shower is my top go to for relaxing. Whenever I have the free time to go take a shower I take it. Yes, no matter what time it is to be honest. Take a shower and relax your mind. This can help you 100% for sure. Another thing I love doing while I shower is playing my favourite songs this gets me in a great mood. as I mentioned music, I love even playing that now and then. Even when my kids are around I play some music this also gets them tired afterwards and lets then wine down. Especially my oldest this works best because she active 24/7. Yes I can never get her to relax so the best ideas if you also have a son or daughter like this is to pick something that can help you both.

My blog. Of course this is another relaxation suggestion. If you are a mommy blogger like myself taking the time out from your kids if you can to work on your blog or organizing ideas for it helps. You can always get your kids to even help! If you love blogging mommy tips etc get your kids to give you ideas. To be honest kids are the best brain stormer to me. For example I love blogging lifestyle, fashion and beauty. Asking my six year old on fashion etc this can help me with my future post planning this can help the feel involved. In other words my next favourite is Netflix. I mean who doesn’t love to just binge watch movies now and then. Now and then I sneak off and just have some me time and watch a couple shows or movies. I find this helps me on my stress level and relax. Of course I also use this idea on my kids.

Involving the Kids

Nails, I don’t do as much but whenever I get the chance to do mine I try lol. But I mentioned it because I find this idea helps with my six year old. This calms her down also and it creates a mommy and daughter bonding moment. When I do my nails she always comes running in for me to do her nails also.

So this can be an idea if you’ve got girls. In addition, YouTube is added to my list because I love now and then on my spare time watching beauty channels. I absolutely love beauty so this is something I find entertaining. Another great idea where it can get all your family involved to relax but have fun together is playing board games. This is something my husband got me into because he loves board games. And I found this helps my kids have fun, us bond as a family and keep the chaos on the low.

Conclusion

Overall, it’s okay to have time for you during the stay in time. I hope my post gathered you some ideas and ways to relax and have some mommy you time. Also help you come up with ways to involve the kids while you all stay in during this time. I hope you all are doing well and is staying in and keeping safe. Thank you all for reading today’s blog post, if you haven’t read my last post you will find that HERE. Please like, comment and share!

How to grow your brows

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great relaxing weekend. So you want to know how to get thicker brows or at least get your brows growing! I just want to say whatever I state is what I did and it has worked for me and I noticed a change. So I’d be telling you how to came up with my theory and then get into the steps to achieving thicker longer growing brows.

Disclaimer: In the name of full transparency, please be aware that this blog post contains affiliate links and any purchases made through such links will result in a small commission for me (at no extra cost for you).”

Background to theory

So a couple years back when I started my program in becoming a esthetician we was starting to learn waxing. Now I loved waxing everyone else but my brows lol. I honestly hardly had any brows this was just natural genetic. I felt like there wasn’t much I can do with them. If I tried and shape them I just might lose to much hair. I still did wax them here and there I had no choice. I did end up liking the end results because it was much easier for me to fill in my brows.

Gaining Growth

So the trick I realized to gain the growth I wanted was one waxing and the second trick I was always doing was brushing my brows. Yup lol just simply brushing my brows everyday. This trick worked because your then stimulate growth. Also because I had to get them waxed that also played a part by allowing the growth to be fuller too. So doing these two things allowed growth and fullness.

Need a trick for doing your brows? You can ready my brow hack here!

Brow Hack

Oils for growth

There is also various oils out there that help with hair growth. For extra blood stimulation you can add oils onto your eyebrow brush. Doing this everyday or every other day will increase more growth. You can also apply it anywhere else you are trying to increase hair growth.

  • Lavender Oils
  • Peppermint Oil
  • Rosemary Oil
  • Cedar wood Oil
  • Lemongrass Oil
  • Thyme Oil
  • Clary Sage Oil
  • Tea Tree Oil

And there you have it! A list of great essential oils for growth. I have used a few of these and I must say I love them. And now you can go and get those brows to fullness.

Hello March

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I can’t believe it’s March already . Each month I try to make goals and improvements towards my blog and social media. This helps me keep going and help me improve indifferent ways to improve and accomplish my goals I set. Sometimes I honestly don’t met my goals because life takes over. But new month so new goals and try again. So for this March post I wanted to share this months goals.

Disclaimer: In the name of full transparency, please be aware that this blog post contains affiliate links and any purchases made through such links will result in a small commission for me (at no extra cost for you).”

First Goal : Consistency
I always have this goal every month! I always try and show as much consistency as possible. The reason I always try and keep this as a goal is because it’s hard to get where you want to be if you show no consistency in your plan. Also because am a mother it’s hard to always be consistent because of course being a mother comes first. And sometimes things don’t always go as planned. It’s always hard for me to meet my goals and get my blog to where I want to be. For example I was suppose to have this post up for awhile now lol. It’s actually way over due but I’ve been super tired and drained from the week so it’s now going up now. But I’ll still try and practice consistency!
Second Goal: Planning

Now goes as smooth as planning and organizing. Planning and organizing my thoughts for the day, week and month helps me so much. And because if a busy schedule I constantly have if I don’t do this at least a bit then I wouldn’t get any posts out at all. I’d most likely just not bother and drop everything. I actually already started doing this for the month of March and I feel super accomplished and proud of myself.

Third Goal: Promoting

Okay, so this one I really got to work on lol. Honestly I don’t always got time to promote my content the way I want to.or at least how long. This year every month I want to really invest my time into networking and promoting my blog posts. I have realized I am not going to get where I want or the views I want if you don’t invest your time into marketing. It plays a huge role on being a blogger and I want to accomplish something towards my blog for 2020. Even if I have to try different methods I will.

Fourth Goal: Social Media

Social media, well to me kinda goals hand in hand with promoting. I know I already have to work on at least posting once a day if I can. Neglecting social media pages will lead to unfollowers and less engagement. So far I have been sticking to my goal and I have been posting everyday or every other day. Being a mom it can be hard to get content out there for your Instagram depending what content you do and using my planning method it has helped so much! I have content planned for the next for days at least. If you haven’t been following me yet you can find my Instagram HERE.

These are my main goals for March I love to follow every month. It has helped me a lot when trying to get myself out there. Nothing is more frustrating then feeling like your in the same spot and haven’t been accomplishing anything but I decided to live by these. Thanks for reading today’s post if you haven’t got to read my last please do so you can find that post HERE. If you have any goals set for this month please share. Like, share and leave a comment.

3 Blogging Mistakes

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. For today’s blog post I thought I wanted to talk about my three major blogging mistakes I’ve made. I’ve made a past blog post on things I wish I knew before blogging so I thought this would be a great next post. If you haven’t yet got to read that post you can find that HERE. Now the three things I’ll be listing are things I didn’t know about or understood when starting a blog. I just want to state these may be different towards you or other bloggers. Everyone creates their own mistakes and it’s just part of the journey of blogging. We all have to create mistakes to get better and improve. I am still making mistakes even now.

1. Proofreading

Yes, proofreading. I know you all or some are maybe like “how?” Everyone knows after writing you proofread your work. Well I hate proofreading and correcting and all that Jazz to be honest. And I honestly was never good at English in school and I suck at writing sometimes. I’ve always struggled with this at school and even as a soon to be 27 year old. That is what somewhat held me back from starting a blog in some ways but I decided to overcome that feeling and go for it. Thanks to my wonderful husband also when he is available he will go over my post for me and correct anything that needs to be corrected. But even tho I suck at it I realized as a blogger I need to make sure things are corrected regardless if I hate it. This will affect views and follows and I got to stay professional with my work.

2. SEO

Search engine optimization, this is something I totally didn’t know or understood about when I just started blogging. I would see a lot of bloggers talking about this and a lot of blog posts on this. Of course I did my research and read as much as I could about this and slowly started to grasp what search engine optimization was. Now with the help of plug-ins I make search all or least most of my blogs are SEO. Now whenever I don’t get blog posts up or it’s not a day i post I still get good amounts of searches on google. I am still always trying to make sure to improve my SEO writing.

3. Word Count

My third and last blogging mistake is word count. At the beginning of my blogging even still sometimes now I noice when I make some blog posts some are pretty short. I don’t know if I only do this but at the end I hate it. One of the things I wanted to try and do differently was make longer blog posts. For one it can increase more of my traffic and following and actually make people want to read my content. I didn’t want to be known for the blogger who make short postings. So I have made a change and increase my word count on my content and I have noticed a difference throughout the months. What I have done to help me was I would chose topics I can really elaborate on. It was the best way to change the way I write and it has worked so far.

Thanks for reading, I hope any of mistakes can help any of you that may be starting a blog or want to even start one. Remember we are all learning and it’s okay to make mistakes here and there throughout our blogging journey. Please remember to like, comment and follow if you haven’t yet! I always love to hear from you all. Comment any blog mistakes you may of had or found bit of a struggle? May even help me lol See you all in my next post !

3 Major things I wish I knew before starting a blog

Hey everyone, welcome back. First things first I was suppose to have a blog up Monday morning. But due to me throwing my youngest daughter her first birthday Sunday night I literally got thrown off schedule. I was so busy Sunday night I didn’t even get to start half of my post. I was deciding if I should put up Monday post for Tuesday and keep Wednesday post the same. But that would be too close of a catch up for me so I am now posting Monday’s post today Wednesday. For today’s post I wanted to talk about the three major things I wish I knew before starting a blog. Now this is going to be my raw thoughts based on my experiences.

1. Time

Initially I started blogging when I only had my oldest. At the time I started she was about four years old started school. I decided to quit my job and was fed up in my field of work and that’s when I decided to start my dream and start a blog. Now since in the days I had a lot of time of my hands I had time to meet my deadlines and post whenever I planned on posting. Now obviously things and life has changed but before starting a blog I never knew the amount of time in and time loss I’d have. Now that I am a mom of two I have loss time on post schedules and sacrifice uploads for sleep. I never knew the difficulties of blogging while being a mom and wife.

2. Traffic

Another major difficulty’s many bloggers have is gaining traffic. Being a blogger I have realized time and traffic go hand in hand. If you want more traffic and interaction you always need to put time in. This has been the hardest for me especially when I don’t get to make out time a specific day because that week or day can just be busy for me. Usually kids never really want to go by your schedule you just have to go with their schedule. Sometimes this makes me feel like am not getting anywhere with my blog especially if I see my traffic go down a bit. I always try and remember to try and motivate myself to keep going and remember why I started my blog. Another tip I use is to try and find the day and time I can fit in my blogging and social media time into my schedule even if it is for an hour. Sometimes I even include my mommy time, for example taking pictures of my toddlers outfits and using them for my Instagram post.

3. Interaction

In conclusion, the last and not least is interaction. I never knew how hard it is to get and gain social interaction on social media with other fellow bloggers. I find this the most frustrating thing ever being a blogger. I know it involves vice versa but i find it really irritating. It’s even harder for me being a mommy blogger since I can’t be on so much and I go M.I.A for a few days so I don’t get to interact online. Whenever I do I swear I get 0-2 responses back, I mean if I get 1-2 that’s a start but it’s really hard. The hardest platform is instagram and I know it’s not just me as a blogger but for a lot of other bloggers too. I decided to put in more motives when being more social online. I do admit that I am an introvert so I can be a little more outgoing and open online. I realized doing this can help grow my platform grow more and also for Instagram. It can also show my follows who I am more and it’s one way people will interact more with you as a blogger. Furthermore it’s the best way to overcome our challenges as bloggers to to change and find solutions that can work for us to fix these challenges we have.

Thank you all for reading this post. If you haven’t read my last blog post you can find that HERE. Please tune into a new post next Monday 9AM EST standard time. I hope you all found this post helpful, if you have anything you wish you knew before blogging please let me know in the comments! Please like, comment and follow! I always love to hear from you all!
