My daily routine during isolation

Hey everyone, welcome back. Happy Monday! These weeks have been going by quick for me. It’s crazy to think that for the fact we have been stuck in isolation for a few weeks now. I am beginning to find it hard to keep myself busy during the days or least find rest. I thought why not make a post on my daily routine during isolation.

Isolation

Morning’s

Most my mornings start at around after 7am. That is usually the time my youngest daughter wakes up and my oldest. They still on that early school mornings schedule. I lay in bed with my youngest for awhile, scroll through social media for awhile before I get up. I love laying for a bit before I get up. To curve this over I drink a cup of water before I start my day.

I prepare breakfast. My oldest loves waffles usually sometimes eggs and my youngest has fruits and eggs. Forgot to mention in the mornings when my youngest gets up she does have a bottle while we relax in bed. So she usually is still hungry so she gets a plate of breakfast. While the kids eat while watching their programs I get ready and start my breakfast. I usually have either eggs or oatmeal and some fruit. While eating am usually watching a show or scrolling through my phone.

After breakfast the kids usually just watch tv. Since online school has started after breakfast my oldest starts her class work. This is usually a challenge throughout the day because my oldest has a very short attention span. She can be doing one task for hours. So pretty much through the afternoon am trying to get her to focus. My one year old usually gets occupied with her favourite movies and shows or just runs around the house. (I usually don’t do much as in learning yet with her she usually doesn’t stay and would just throw anything). So my oldest does this for awhile and by then my youngest gets ready to go down for her morning nap. This is around from 11 to 12:30pm she starts getting tired.

Afternoon

Usually my oldest can be still doing work or taking a break by then. When she does take her break I then allow her to just play for a bit. This is the time I do my blogging or anything else am trying to get done. My youngest naps for about an hour if a short nap or three hours or so if a long nap. But around this time the afternoon am not really doing much. Also I just want to make a disclaimer that since the quarantine started I have been at my mom and dads place. And since then I haven’t gone back home I’ve been staying with them. I just wanted to state that in case anyone wondering why am not really doing anything lol like if am a wife that does nothing.

Evening

By evening time it is usually down time around then for me. We all are not really doing anything by then. It is mostly time doing activities. From 12pm onwards it’s getting things done and coming up with activities to do.

This leads towards more in the evening. By around 6pm its usually dinner time. By then I get my kids dinner ready, I am then most likely eating by then too. After eating they both run around for a bit. By 7pm its ready to get ready for a bath. After my youngest takes a bath she ready to get ready for bed. She is always down by least 8pm to 9pm on good nights. On bad nights she could take up till 10pm to go down. My oldest is rough for going down at nights so she usually would knock out by 10pm the latest. And no I dont allow that on school nights her bedtime is 8:30pm.

Conclusion

And by that time its me time. I am always looking forward to this time throughout the day especially on tiring days. I mean don’t get me wrong I love spending time with my kids but this quarantine can get the best of us. But there you go my day during isolation. I am sorry if my day seems somewhat boring lol. This is a raw everyday routine from a mommy with two kids. Thank you all for reading. Please like, share and comment. And if you haven’t read my latest posts you can find them below.

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.

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!

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.

How to Contour for beginners

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post. I am happy I was able to get this post out, this post was long overdue. For today’s post I wanted to talk about how to contour. Contouring is a application technique used to create shadows and bring out your facial structure. This helps makes certain parts of the face stand out and also appear slimmer. The highlight part of contour and highlighting helps bring out the glow in your face of where the sun naturally hits.

Basic Contouring

So first I want to talk about the basics with contouring. When it comes to contouring you want to choose a shade that is one shade lighter down from your skin tone. Also another tip is knowing your face shape. One thing I notice a lot is that some people tend to contour the same. Your not going to want to do that. Your going to want to determine your face shape first so you know what areas to contour. For example, I have an heart shaped face so I try to always bring out my cheek bones and pay attention to around my chin area. Another tip is making sure to use the right product. But this would be all up to you!

Steps to contouring
  1. Prime with a primer also a moisturizer for your face.
  2. Apply your favourite foundation. With a damp beauty blender.
  3. To contour, your going to want to follow the structure and shadows of your own face shape. If you want to define your jaw line your going to want to blend powder or cream along your jawline. If you want to bring out your cheek bones follow the same steps. Here’s another tip if you love your nose you do not need to contour your nose!
  4. Set your make up, remember to along your T zone. Your going to want to do this with a setting powder. After setting with a powder you can set with a setting spray. Your going to just spray this and this will bring your makeup altogether!

I hope this post was helpful, I tried to get as detailed as possible. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post. If any of you have any questions about contour and highlighting please leave a comment. I am always happy to help and I always love reading your comments and questions. I must say contour and highlighting (well more contouring) is one of my favourite parts to a completed makeup look. I love bringing out my natural cheek bones and just playing around with it. What are some of your favourite products for contour and highlighting? Do you find it easy or difficult when it comes to contouring? Please leave a comment, like and please share! Also if you haven’t checked out my last post you can find that HERE.
