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.
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.
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, 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.

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Welcome to my last blog post of the year. I can’t believe am at my last blog post of the year. Another year down of blogging for me, it’s insane. Feels like yesterday when I pick up my laptop and decided to start a blog right there and then. For today’s post I wanted to talk about my 2019 year in a review.
Beginning of 2019
The start of 2019 was year two of my blog. It has grown so much from since starting in 2018. I wanted to achieve a lot this year with my blog and I can say am somewhat pleased and happy with the outcome. I did have a totally different outcome when it came to views and traffic. Last year at the beginning of 2018 I did get pregnant with my second daughter and totally fell off from blogging. This decline my views and traffic a whole lot. I stopped blogging due to always sleeping and just the just of pregnancy symptoms. I started back December 2018 and decided to work and gain back my audience in 2019. Beginning of the year was pretty tough when finding the time to blog due to me finding how to manage two kids especially a newborn.
Middle of the year
Middle of my year was pretty great for 2019. It was exciting watching my baby grow into a one year old. My oldest turning six and this year was my two year anniversary with my husband. We spent our time on our first trip away from the kids. I also did a post about that which you can find that HERE. My views for my blog in the middle of the year were pretty good. To be honest with you all they weren’t as big of a number as I wanted it to be but they were larger then last year. I am happy because I was still where I wanted to be and I made progress. I am actually surprised I kept up with my blog in the summer due to me moving which was a huge change for me. I had to adapt to moving out into the country from the city. I need to develop a new schedule that fit with me and find a time to do my blogging. The summer I got actually a good amount of high views which I was happy about. I would say most of my views was from early on in the year towards the summer. I’m happy that I got to accomplish my goal.
Ending of 2019
The last few months, I would say was my hardest to adjust and maintain my blog page. And to be honest throughout this year I had periods of when I was disappointed. And I would would wonder if I should even continue at all. I felt like I wasn’t reaching where I wanted to be even though I did accomplish some goals on views throughout the year. I decided not to put out any blog posts for the month of October. This is because my mom life took over a lot that month I tried planning for that month and was unsuccessful. I decided to use that month and plan for November and take a break. For the month of November my youngest turned one, I officially have a toddler.
If I had to give advice to someone about blogging, especially a mom blogger. I’ve learned this year (trying to remember) that it’s okay to feel discouraged sometimes. That’s every blogger route is different for some it may come easier and for some it might just take us a little bit longer. That all I can do is keep making goals and working hard. And that it’s fine if I have periods I need a break family always comes first. Overall am not to upset about 2019 progress, and hopefully 2020 is much better. Thank you all for reading.

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post! Happy Monday I hope everyone had a great weekend mine was decently pleasant. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review for Sol De Janeiro coco cabana cream.
I recently got the sample product in my Ipsy August bag along with other sample products. I have bought the Bum Bum Cream, I believe I have done a review on it you can find it HERE. I have not even thought to try this product because I am loving the scent of the Bum Bum Cream so I was excited to try this one out. And I honestly wish I have decided to try this out sooner! I am absolutely in love with this coco cabana cream scent, I am starting to believe this is my all time favorite scent now.
The coco cabana cream is oil in water body cream that instantly hydrates. This product is for all skin types and the main concerns this product supports is dryness, dullness and uneven texture. If you are wondering what the scent type is for the coco cabana cream it is a warm and sweet scent. The key ingredients highlighted in the product are coconut oil, coco sugar and cupuacu butter. One thing I always do before buying any skin related product for my skin is to check is it made for my skin type and what skin concerns is the product helping and would it help me. I always try to avoid buying anything skin products that don’t help my skin type or my needs. It honestly is a waste of money for me because it will go against my skin and because it wasn’t made for it. I also abide by this for my make up purchases also.
I am literally going to buy a bigger size of this product and also get the body mist along with it. This will most likely be my go to scent for awhile. I honestly don’t think am going to get sold on another scent. This has definitely beat the Bum Bum Cream, I love the scent also but it’s something I wouldn’t apply daily because I’d probably after awhile get sick of the scent. But this coconut scent is something I can live for I guess am a warm sweet type of girl.
What are some of your favorite scents? Or are you more prone like me to just sniff around until you come across a scent you love? I guess since I am sold and hooked on the scent I am more a warm sweet scent. I recently came across online on Sol De Janeioro page where they said they have came out with a slightly different scent. I was confused because I dont know if it is the new scent I have or I haven’t smelled that yet. But I am going to purchase the body mist and medium sized bottle of the cream. You can find that HERE from your local sephora. Thank you all for reading, I hope you all enjoyed! I will be getting a laptop soon, most likely by September. And I will then be back on my blog schedule as usual. See you all in my next post!
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Tuesday I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine was super busy but at least has Sunday to relax a bit and unwind. Its a full busy week for me though hopefully I can get everything needed done. I wanted to start the week off with a current “whats in my makeup bag” post, I have done one a while back and wanted to do an updated one as because a makeup bag never stays the same am I right?
So one thing I have realised is I carry so much more in my makeup bag then before. I believe because of current product obsession and also maybe because of the current season? I live in Toronto, ON so it is currently winter so every season I only carry around products I need or currently need that specific day.
Whats in my makeup bag? So first thing I absolutely need always when am out is the current lipstick or gloss I am wearing that day of course in case I need to reapply. Also what I always need next is sometimes I carry around tissue, the reason is to blot, throughout the day I sometimes get a bit oily around my T zone and chin area and I hate walking around without touching up my face. Another top need is my lash glue, I now wear lashes every time I do a full on face or even if i just do my brows I have to have lashes on. In case a lash pops off I always make sure to have my lash glue. Those are all my top beauty must haves in my make up bag that has to always be there no matter what season, I even keep a lip balm in my bag for dry lips to apply before my lipstick or even if though out the day I dont want lipstick on anymore and just a balm its there. That should be in every beauty bag especially in the winter.
For the other beauty products I have that usually do change related to season, is I always have different primers in my make up bag. This is usually a change for me on mood, if I feel like using one primer I haven’t to in awhile id use it also it depends how my skin is feeling. But the top primer I usually use 90% of the time is the Becca matte primer, this helps me not get a oily face though out the day. So in my beauty bag I also usually have my brow essentials laying in there that isn’t a beauty must I need through out the day but I usually say to myself ” What if I need to fix my brows?” and so because of that I walk around with that also. But to be honest I do carry around a bunch of random things in my beauty bag I dont really need. When I am applying make up I sometimes use products and just then dump it into my bag and I then just leave it and because of this when I do carry around my bag its just packed with some products I dont even need or least at the time. One of the things I noticed I have a lot in my beauty bag is moisturiser I carry around different kinds and this is because of what I just explained, at this time its not so much a bad thing because its currently winter here in Toronto, ON and its pretty bad at the moment and its always good to keep moisturised.
I always love keeping a good mascara in my bag also, and I honestly dont need that around but I love collecting beauty samples from Sephora and I love trying out new mascaras am currently loving the Marc Jacobs one. And I always just throw them into my make up bag as a current habit. A non beauty item I love keeping is a good hair tie, yes I carry around a hair tie this is because anytime I am out and am annoyed of my hair or I need to tie it up I always got one on me. And I know id end up needing one because there has been a couple times when it came in handy. Well ! that is pretty much it for whats in my make up bag, its not a big bag so I do not keep that much in there but hopefully what I may keep in there could help one of you with yours! Also I know again I have been late with Monday post due to being a mom and being sleep deprived hopefully I can get back on track and get my blog posts done by Sunday I hope everyone understands. I hope you guys have a great rest of your Tuesday !
