Fall Trend | Plaid Blazer

IMG_20171007_170712_422.jpg

One of favorite trends for the fall is the plaid blazer. It makes any outfit look awesome. Pairing a plaid jacket with some jeans and your favorite shoe is my go to. You can dress this up or down like I did. I am not much of a blazer girl but something about the plaid blazer just make sense and looks f*ckin cool.

How to Grow Out Your Nails

IMG_3194.jpg

I love having long healthy nails but I know it is not as easy as it might seem to get the nails you desire, they break, chip, snag, tear, etc. Here are some tips to help grow your nails.

Moisturize

Dry hands are a no no when it comes to healthy long nails. You should moisturize your hands like you moisturize your face. This is extremely important in the winter when your skin is the driest.

Don’t bite your nails

Biting your nails can be a bad habit and this bad habit is a surefire way to inhibit nail growth. 

File your nails

Filing your nail strategically can actually help your nails grow. If there is a small tear in your nail don't make the tear bigger file that part of your nails. 

Always wear a base coat 

Most people when wearing finger nail polish put a top coat but forget the base coat. The base coat helps protect your nails from getting stains from the polish. 

Good Diet
Having a well balanced diet is a great base for your nails to grow. Eating the nutrients you need and water you need in your diet not only will help your nails but it will also help your skin and hair.

October Mood Board | 2017

Hello October! I can not believe how fast September flew by but October has to be one of my top five months out of the year. I really enjoy all of the fall clothes and the colors change in the leaves, not to mention Halloween. As you probably already know I start back at school so September was just a month of seeing how my classes were and gauging how much homework I would have and how much study time I would need for those classes along with my work schedule. So that is why I have not been posting as mush as I would like but I now think I have found a schedule that work for me. This month is all about getting back on track with my blog and social media. I have a lot of new content coming that I am super excited about so stay tuned!  

October Goals

  • Be productive and better time management. 
  • Get out and take more pictures with my camera.
  • Stay on top of my blog and social media post.
  • Do some fall cleaning around the house.
  • Go to a pumpkin patch.
  • Do some more Fall/Winter shopping.
  • Try some new fall recipes.

 

Things You Should Avoid Before Bed

IMG_3079.jpg

There are some things you should never do before going to bed. I know from experience what a no no before bed time like watching a scary movie. Here are some other things you should avoid before going to bed.

Spicy Foods - Eating spicy foods before going to bed can give you indigestion and heartburn.

Caffeine - Caffeine before bed can keep you up all night.

Exercise - Exercising before bed can keep you heart rate up making it hard to go to sleep.

A lot of Water - Drinking a lot of water can keep you up all night because every 5 minutes you will need to get up and go to the bathroom. 

Scary Movies - Watching a scary movie before bed is not the best idea. You will definitely have nightmares and not be able to sleep.

Lots of Sugar -  Too much sugar before bed can make you feel jittery and keep you up.

What are somethings avoid before going to bed?
