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.

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.

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!

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.

Must haves for Spring

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Back to another week, hopefully it goes by fast. I can’t believe it’s March already! February has come and gone so quickly. I literally feel like it just was the start of 2020 yesterday. And since it’s March I’ve been feeling spring vibes coming on lol. Like seriously guys from since the end of February I have been feeling this way. And this inspired me for today’s blog post. My must haves for my spring inspired outfit ideas. And this might give you an idea of what you might chose for your spring wardrobe.

So despite the huge amounts of snow I’ve been getting where I live, I’ve been feeling spring vibes. I have been inspired by a lot of spring outfit ideas for the past week. I mean some of them I can wear out now but it wouldn’t be the same lol. These spring outfits ideas get me so excited for spring approaching. I mean it’s the closest am going to get right now.

Graphic Top: Missguided x Hayden Williams Collection

Trousers Pants: Zara

This next outfit idea I absolutely love, it’s cute and I can dress it up or down. This is actually one of the outfits I could possibly wear now depending on the temperatures. I love how super simple it is yet the comfy crop bomber can bring a chic look to the outfit.

Cropped Bomber : Missguided

Cropped top: Small Boutique (can’t remember the name) lol sorry.

Black Bow Tie Trousers: Zara

So this outfit I already have been wearing all the time, it’s one of my favourites. The material is pretty warm so you can wear this in the spring too possibly pair it with a cute denim jacket. But of course for now I either wear it with my winter parka or on the lighter temperature days my black biker jacket. In the photo I decided to pair this with my long camel jacket. This gives the outfit a more dressed up vibe. Which I thought looked super cute.

Two Piece Matching Set: Fashion Nova

Longline Camel Fur Jacket: Zara

And last but not least, I was feeling of course sweater dress vibes. I don’t know about you but I have been loving a good sweater dress. I love how simple yet cozy and stylish they can be. You can dress them up or down and yet be super warm. I decided to pair this cozy black one with my black biker jacket. If I had to pair a bag with this outfit I’d pair a coloured bag to bring a bit of a pop.

Black Biker Jacket: Fashion Nova

Black Turtleneck Sweater Dress: Pretty Little Thing.
