IMATS NY Haul | 2015

IMATS was this weekend and I had so much fun! This year I was super excited because there were certain brands that I had been eyeing for a while, that weren’t there last year, that ended up being there this year! For Example, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Dose of Colors, & Tarte.

I was able to purchase lots of goodies, so make sure you watch to see what I got!

A few days late but, happy New Year!

I wanted to make sure I started this year out on a positive note, so I made sure to enjoy my last day of 2014 to the fullest and start completely fresh in 2015. I’m not one to usually make resolutions because let’s face it, I never actually stick to them but this year I’m doing things a little different.

Last year had many ups and downs but I grew from them all. It was a year of discovering truths, becoming more independent, and learning to let go and let God. I began 2014 not in the happiest way because I felt unaccomplished with myself and where I was in life. Slowly but surely I began to do little adjustments to my lifestyle and as the year went on I began to enjoy life and become genuinely happy. Of course there were a few rough patches, but I came out of last year with more gratitude for life than I’ve ever felt.

Although I am still not where I want to be and it makes me feel a little disappointed sometimes, I am making it a point to turn that around this year. I am going to try the hardest I’ve ever tried to make my dreams come true and that includes putting 100%  into this blog and other things in my life that will help me prosper.

With that said, my new year’s resolution this year is to live. I want to live life to it’s fullest, I want travel, I want to love, I want to genuinely enjoy my life. It will not be easy, but I will make those changes and by the end of this year, I vow to be where I want to be in life, happy as can be. I encourage you all to try to actually live your life this year. It is truly a great feeling when you genuinely love life and feel immense gratitude for being here.

I hope you all have an incredible new year and thank you so much for sticking with me this year!

lots of love
xo, Jess
