I consider multitasking to be a talent of mine. It seems like my generation can’t do just one thing at a time. The busier you are the more productive it seems. And with instant gratification being a big problem with us, the faster you can do things the better. However, lately I’ve been relishing in doing things one at a time. Concentrating on the task in front of me with full attention. No more watching a movie while online shopping and checking my mail.

Happy Monday!

RollerDerby{my first roller derby game experience – not as violent as I had expected}

I’ve been going off the last two weeks with 4 hours a sleep each night. On the plus side I’ve gotten to spend time with a lot of my friends at unique events that I normally don’t do.

Happy Monday!

What’s in My Bag

makeupbag{YSL Makeup Bag}

faceproducts  {Estee Lauder Double-Wear Light Makeup, Avene Mattifying Fluid Primer, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation}

 products{Bobbi Brown Bronzer, Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow, Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush, Estee Lauder Stay-in-Place Powder}

I consider myself, along with many other females, a product junkie. You name a product I’ve researched it, purchased it, and thrown it out already. It took many years to narrow down my favorite products and simplify my makeup bag (a challenge which I’ve been struggling with). I did a few sample tests of tinted moisturizers and foundations a couple years back to see which one could last a long, hot summer day. And as much as I love the drug store – which is A LOT – some products are worth their price tag.

 

Have a great weekend!

I don’t know if it’s the same in other families, but in mine we tend to celebrate my mom more so than my dad. We do more for her birthday, presents are always so much easier to pick, and I think she appreciates it a lot more than my dad would. Not to mean he wouldn’t like any of that per say, but he tends to not really care about parties or celebrations or presents for that matter. So when father’s day comes around I have a hard time finding good gifts for him. Which explains some of my gift ideas above. Hope y’all have a great weekend!
