The first thing in this box that I got was Sensodyne toothpaste:

51111396

I know about this toothpaste because I am a user lol! For people who have sensitive teeth or have braces like I do this actually helps your teeth to feel good, and you can see improvements after a week of using it. You can get this at Target for only $5.49! 

The second product in the box was the Celestial Seasoning Sleepytime Herbal tea:

I honestly loved this tea! This helped me relax so much because I am always with stress due to so much work that I have to do throughout the day. Also, it has a pleasant taste to it, and if you are a tea drinker like myself you are going to love this! You can get this at target for only $2.49! But this only works for some people not all! if you go ahead and check out the reviews you will find some that will not like it because it does not help them at all. Each person is different, but it does not hurt to try it out. I personally like this very much. 

The last product in the box was the Aqua Velva Sensitive 5 in 1 After Shave Balm: 

61H+4r+89fL._SY679_

Alright girls, If any of you have a boyfriend or are already married this is perfect to buy for him! I had to give this one to my boyfriend as soon as I got it lol! What he told me is that he loved it! He said that it helped his skin, and it has a pleasant smell. He recommends this to any guy other there, and you can find this at target for only $4.99! 

 

These were all the products that I got from this company, and you do not need a credit card at all. The only thing they ask from you is to give out your most honest opinion, and that is it! To find out more visit their website at www,pinchme.com to get more information.

Sunday Devotional

Alright its Sunday Devotional you guys! Today I want to talk about a verse that stood out for me this whole entire week, and I know this is just God testing my faith because I am going through a time where I need to be stronger than ever. The verse is the following:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 

You see what this means is to not worry or think that it will be the end of the world just because you think something might not go the right way…..or Your way. See what I did there? The timing of God is always perfect, but we need to wait on him! We always look for God when we go through things, but our problem is that we always ASK. We never stop and realize that God already has our situation under control.

Some people usually think of God as, “If you created me then give me everything I want.” Just like a little child in a candy store asking the parents or even making a fuss because we want something, and we want it now! We never think of the goodness that God already gave us, keeps giving us, and will keep giving us.

Okay let me put it this way: We never see the beauty behind our blessings. We are all not perfect therefore we always go back to the phrase of “I want and Give me” yet we never see where God has us now, and that our battles are not like everyone else. We all go through different situations because our lives our different and therefore we are all unique.

This bible verse is saying to thank the lord FIRST because God already knows our needs. We need to pray thanking for every blessing we have, and then at the last say:

 “God, you only know what I am going through and what I need. I don’t want to ask you for anything because you already are providing for me, and working in my life. I may not understand this situation, I might not be happy right now, but all I am asking you is to help me through this because without you I am nothing. There is a reason why I am going through this problem, why I may not have this certain thing, but all I know is that if it is for my own good then you will provide it for me. Yet under this storm I thank you for the gift of LIFE because some other people at this very moment are taking their last breath, or waking up to see a loved one passed away during the night.”

 When you talk to God see him as your best friend, and talk to him as if you had him face to face. What would you ask God or what would you say to him? You do know that only HE brings peace to this unpredictable life. If you have a problem and do not know how to fix it do not be anxious because God has everything under control. Even if the situation does not get fixed the way you want it just remember that at the end of the day only God has a say.

If you believe in him with all your heart and you present yourself to him humble, and giving him thanks then watch your life turn around so fast that you will be surprised at the blessings that will come your way. Trust me on this one because if God can work like that in my life then he can work the same in your life.

Believe. Trust. Pray.

I hope you guys have a wonderful Sunday! Hear the song of the day and click on the video below. If you need any advice in any topic, or you feel that this opened your eyes on something that you are going through feel free to message me. Remember that I am only just….one….click….away.

Weekend Loading…

The week finally ended! I cannot believe how this week ended so fast. If felt like if it was just yesterday that I was rushing just to finish up a lab report to turn in to my professor lol! Anyways how are you guys? You know I have so many thing to tell ya’ll because despite of the busy week I still managed to have a little fun in between.

Yesterday was a day to relax due to so many projects going on with my classes, and the university that I am in was nice enough to organize an event which the theme was HawaiiI totally loved it! As some of you guys may already know my addiction to cake-pops, I was so lucky that they had so many at the event! Besides that, they had grilled chicken with piña coladapineapple, pineapple pizza, some bomb chicken nuggets, and much more!

The day before yesterday, they had bought in a petting zoo so that the students will be able to relax, and take their mind off exams! I know my school is literally the coolest one ever lol! I love how we always have events. From bagel day to giving out free food, there is always an adventure walking into the university. There can never be a day that you will be bored because even if it is studying you will always find something to do.

Even though today is Friday, I am dreading the fact that I have homework due by midnight and I need to study for an exam that will be given by Monday. However, I am trying my best to get some “ME TIME” before doing all of this because I honestly need it. I am thinking of doing my nails and showing you guys the wraps that I am selling in Jamberry, but I will give out more details later once I put up the blog when I am done polishing up.

Another thing that has been on mind is YouTube because I am slacking again! I know shame on me, but keeping everything in balance is tough sometimes especially with school. I am trying to make a good schedule so everything can work out fine. Plus, my partner in crime and I have so many ideas on what to show on YouTube, and it all involves being in the kitchen cooking up something new.

Anyways enough about my week, I would love to know how your week was so far!

I know that sometimes the day goes by so fast that we do not even notice it. Sometimes it is so hard to even think how time just passes by, and we still feel like if there are not enough hours during the day to accomplish a task. I feel that we all take things to “fast-paced” that we forget to stop, and just enjoy our life for a bit. Feel free to ask me anything and if you need advice in any topic remember that I am just….one click….away.

Oh Monday!

Monday started off good! My classes are finally picked out for next semester meaning I will be done by Spring of 2018! I cannot believe that I am so close to graduation, and about to complete my goal. It feels like yesterday as if I just started to decide what major I was going to pick. It was long, hard, but a slow working process. Instead of feeling so overwhelmed with the future classes I will have to take I feel excited! I remember when my dad took me by the hand, and he told me to not fear because God was with me.

I faced so many obstacles, and I also took a year off because I had done my associates degree. Now that I am almost done with my bachelors I feel like my dream is right there! I still have to continue studying though because even though I am done with the first part I still have a long way to go. Later, I will write about what I am studying, and I know that many of you in the field will understand where I am coming from.  I will also talk more about my journey as graduation is gets closer.

This week I will start writing about how to eat healthy, how to get fit, symptoms of getting sick, and you guys will be with me on my journey to weight loss. Due to school and work, I never have time to work-out which I am just eating like there is no tomorrow, but it’s also due to stress. Maybe some of you will be able to identify with my story, and go along this journey with me.

Before I forget, I want to leave you guys with a little motivation. For students out there, I know it must be hard to study because you just want to reach your goal asap! But let me tell you this: all those tears, sleepless nights, and not going out will be GOLD for you later! This is because good things come to those who WORK! Be patient, keep studying, never give up, if you fall get back up, and never stop believing on your capabilities because at the end of the day, not only God, but also your future is in your hands. God gives you the easy way out, but also there is a hard way out yet that hard way is the most valuable one. Trust me when I say I am a living proof of what it is to almost fail, and at the end trying my best to win! Keep in mind that failure should not stop you from your goal. Learn from it, grow from it, keep going, and keep in mind that there are people out there who failed but now they are professionals. If they can do it so can you!

With this being said, I hope your day goes well and may blessings pour down in each and every one of your lives. If you need advice in any topic remember that I am just….one….click….away. Love ya’ll and God bless!

Sunday Devotional

Its time for a Sunday Devotional!

Today in the morning I did not go to church because I am still sick. Anyways, as I started to pray I remember of what happened yesterday. My sister and I were at home and we started to hear a song that I used to sing to her when she was just a baby. It was so amazing how I would always sing this song, but I never really thought about the words. It goes something like this:

“Over the mountains and the sea

Your river runs with love for me

And I will open up my heart and

Let the healer set me free.”

You guys might know what song this is already, but if you don’t I will link it down below. Yesterday I was starting to feel a little bit sad because not only am I sick, but also my mom. When this song started playing the words grabbed my full attention. The phrase “Let the healer set me free” got to me! Here I was thinking that I was going to have a terrible night, but really I keep forgetting who is the real doctor in my life! My one and only healer is God! I prayed so much and I asked God to not only heal me physically, but also in any other part of my life.

I have been working so much that I sometimes forget to even pray. When we get sick due to so much work, not only do we get sick physically, but also emotionally and spiritually. I took the time yesterday to evaluate every part of me, and see what needed to be fix. I had to replay this song for more than 4 times so I can digest every single word, and when I finally did I felt like the spirit of God came over me. It is something I cannot explain but I cried so much, and my sister and I started praying.

Today even though I did not go to church, I woke up so much better! I feel like I can tackle anything but I still feel a little bit sick. From a 1 to a 10 I can say I feel like an 8! You see when you believe in God you start to believe and make sure that he is your “healer” he takes his time and works in you. I can proudly say that I am a work in progress because sometimes I might fail, but the Lord is so amazing that he catches me right before I fall.  When I opened the bible today the verse on Psalm 30:2 caught my attention and it says:

“Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.”

Once I saw that I had a huge smile on my face because honestly, he is healing me little by little I just need to believe. Take this time and evaluate your life. Are you feeling sick? Are you feeling that at this point you cannot get up? Listen to the song and mediate on this and watch being uplifted in a way you would never explain. God is a good God you just need to let him work in you! You are loved by many, and unique in front of everyone else. Don’t let a sickness or a problem make you feel like you cannot do a certain thing because that is a lie.

I pray that anyone who reads this finds healing in their lives, and help the people that need to see this keep going throughout the day. April is here! Make this your month! Be healthy, eat healthy, workout, but never forget to also work on your spirituality because your life needs to have a balance. God bless you all, and if you need any advice on any topic remember I am just….one….click….away.

Review on Pond’s

As many of you ladies know…Make-up is LIFE! Once you step into Sephora or ULTA you know darn well you will not leave without buying something from those stores lol! (well at least I don’t leave empty handed lol!) But we have to admit that sometimes it is a pain to take off the makeup, and once you get home you just want to get into bed and forget about the world. My favorite brand to clean my face is the Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser because it just takes it all off!

80bd02ebd69cbea22d7d996f8fa71db1.jpg

I have been knowing about this since it came out because my mom usually buys this brand like her whole entire makeup place HAS this brand as a cleanser. Yet, when my mother runs out of it she makes me go to the store to get her one lol! I have been seeing reviews about this make-up remover on the internet, and I thought, “Hey I should say what I think about this product!”   You can usually find this at Target for $4.99 or any other store even online. So go ahead and try this out you will not be disappointed.
