It’s finally Friday and I want to go to the Beach!

happy-cat

First of all, happy Friday everyone, I think I was not that excited about a weekend like this one. Last weekend was me resting, and while I needed it doesn’t compare to what I was planning, however it helped me recover.

Lately, I really been liking taking short trips with my hubs, because it has made me realize that you have to enjoy life, and meeting new places help you relax and take your mind away from other stuff that sometimes can get hectic. Now, honestly I was not like this, in the past I would see traveling as a waste of time, but now I do feel is an important part of keeping a balanced mind and it has helped me see life with different eyes. Also, it has helped me being more calmed while I am under stressful situations and solved them more efficiently.

Today I am so happy because tomorrow we are going to the beach iiiikkk!!!, I guess I haven’t gone since I was in high school (long time ago!). So the hubs and I are planning a little field trip to Galveston.

Now, I heard some people complain about Galveston (that is not pretty enough, whatever!) but other people have gone and really liked it, so I really need to go and see it for myself. Still I am excited because I feel so good today that nothing will stop me (hopefully!).

So what are your plans for this weekend? I really would like to know!

Until Next Time,
xoxo

Hot Hot Hot!

Good day to all of you out there!! I cannot believe how summer has been stalking us here in Houston, and the Humidity oh my lord, that is something I’ve never experienced before. People from here tell me is not even real summer yet, so I don’t know what will happen. One thing for sure is that these past few days I’ve decided to give a rest to my flat and curling irons only because with the humidity my hair does not stay put.

So what I’ve been doing? Well, playing with all the hair products I can to get an easy hairstyle without fighting my wavy hair nature. I got to the point of saying I am letting this battle go and focus on more important stuff like organizing the new apartment (‘cuz this little hoarder hasn’t finished unpacking!). Also, for my makeup I’ve been keeping it very minimal, double wear foundation from Estee Lauder paired with my biggest discovery so far, the NYX matte setting spray, gotta love that stuff because it keeps my face from melting big time and my blush stays on the entire day. A little bit of eyeshadow from my NAKED Basics palette and my beloved ELF eyeliner. A little bit of lip gloss or lip balm and I am good to go.

I love this easy summer routine, today it took me less than 30 minutes to get ready, that has to be a record for me!! And the question of the day is: Do you have any special humidity tips for me? Also I heard hurricane season started, do you know any special things I should do to prepare for that?

Until Next Time

My Zumba Experience

Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend I know I am full of work thanks to month end…but still I have a small break and decided to write a bit, and wanted to talk about my new hobby. Well is no news to everyone that since I returned from Ecuador and moving to Houston I’ve been gaining some pounds (ok a lot!!). These past few months have been a bit stressful and I have not been taking care of my eating habits that much, until a couple of weeks ago when I said enough!…

So I decided to eat healthier and join the gym once again, now that I am more “stable”. They offer tons of classes, but my first option was cycling since I used to do that in my previous gym and helped me a lot! But, a friend of mine (who joined as well) went to the Zumba class and told me how great it was. Honestly I was a bit skeptical because I never thought it would work, but I decided to give it a try, little did I know that I was going to LOVE IT.

IT IS AMAZING, you burn a lot of calories, while dancing (even if you don’t know the steps) and you work out ALL YOUR BODY. I ended up burning almost 500 Calories in a 60 minutes class which is way more of what I’ve burned in cycling in the past. So yes! I recommend Zumba if you want to exercise while having fun and learning a few new steps.

Have you practiced zumba?

Until Next Time

The Blogilates Challenge

Hey everyone! Happy Friday I am pretty excited to be here today, with a more relaxing mood at work and still getting my routine established here in Houston.  Well yesterday, my organizing spirit raised again an I had to go and get this:

image

This is the perfect tool for getting organized (at least for me) especially because I am afraid to forget paying the electricity…imagine that!! Plus I am using this to organize my posts,  videos and fun stuff like excercise and cleaning lol.

Yesterday,  while organizing I remembered that I do need to plan my workout routine, I have some videos, but gosh they are boring, so in the search of an idea of what to do to keep me busy I found Blogilates, which is a YouTube channel full of workout routines, and I also found this:

image

OMG!! This is what I needed…colors and unicorn sparkles to get motivated for working out (isn’t cute??) So I just printed it out and YES for a month I will do the Blogilates beginners calendar, I have to say I am pretty excited about this!! What I liked the most is that you don’t need any special equipment that will end up cluttering your closet and you can totally do this from home.

Also, I was thinking when I should start,  you know how many people say I’ll start on Monday, well not me friends, the action starts TODAY, because I need it, and of course I will be giving you my thoughts,  if by any chance I cannot update here make sure to follow me at Instagram (@makeupcake84) which is where all the fun happens when I am not here.

Now tell me guys!! I mean this is not really a new year resolution for me, but more like a change in my lifestyle. So tell me what change are you working in your life right now?? I would really like to know what you are up to so please comment down below!!

Until Next Time

New Year…New Everything

Happy New Year to all of my dearest reader’s hoping that this year is great for all of you and all your goals be accomplished. For me well, it’s been a heck of a time I got back from my 3 months in Ecuador on December, finally moved to Houston and I’m mostly installed and ready to keep on my blogging and video filming…because we all know I was kind of slacking on those.

So today I started making a list of posts I want to write (cuz I am organized like that) and thought about what I got for Christmas…IKEA furniture… ok that post is done lol.

image

And while trying to mumble year end close at work I did manage to visit a couple of places to enjoy a bit of Christmas, which was great with my baby here..But we did miss the family for the holidays..I have to say this was my first holidays away from them.

image

Yes, this is me working the 24th lol…

Now to keep with the rambling, I know this year will bring more amazing things, I mean last year my life dramatically changed…so I am quite sure this will be great and I wish you all the best as well.

Until Next Time
