Post Grad Depression? How to Get Out of a Rut!

Graduation is often thought of as a wonderful moment in your life. You finally achieved your goal and earned your degree after studying for so many years! You should be happy right? Sadly, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, post-grad depression hits with full force and knocks down recent grads who are trying to find their footing in life. They feel lost with no sense of direction because they don’t know what the next step in their life is going to be. They’re having a hard time landing their first entry level position and find themselves back home with mom and dad, feeling like a failure. I went through this after my graduation for about a year. I was unemployed, really depressed, and highly anxious about my future because I had no idea what I was going to do with my life. 



If you find yourself relating to me at all, I want you to keep on reading to find ways you can overcome post-grad depression. 

20 tips to help you save money in 2020

This year, I have added a few costly things to my life- New living arrangements, daycare, new car... need I go on? So I've had to cut back: no more lash extensions, no excessive eating out and no "new" clothing shopping. One thing I'm good at is saving! 


Also these tips might seem random- If one out of 20 helps you (that makes me happy). 
Here are 20 tips to help you save money in 2020.

What do I do with my Wedding Guests?

I actually got an email from a reader (Hi Cindy!) regarding a wedding situation. I thought it would be perfect to share on here because you never know what someone else is going through. 


Her Question-
I'm getting married in April and I'm unsure what to do. The ceremony and venue is far. It's Hamilton. I'm not from there and none of my fam is from there. I have a gap in the middle where I take pictures and do an outfit change. Do I book a few hotel room for a every to stay in? I have no idea what to do.


When I got married, I was in the same position.. kind of. And I had to learn this on my own to let your guests think for themselves. As a bride, it's so easy to get wrapped up in so many different situations. I'm the type of person that honestly does not want to inconvenience anyone and I will look for ideas to make other people happy.... Which usually end up  with me sacrificing my time or things blowing up in my face.

Five tips to make you more confident when getting your makeup done

I have a confession. 
Although, I am a makeup artist- getting my makeup done gives me sight anxiety...Yeah I know. 
My main fear is:

What if I don't like it & how I nicely ask someone to change it?


What blushes are in my collection & why?

I get a lot of questions on blushes from everyone. Not just WOC...In my opinion, you only need 3 blushes but having a palette looks better.

This is what I bring whenever I go on shoots. The palette was bought in my last semester of MUA school..I have no idea where my teacher got it. Although you can't get this exact palette, you can definitely dupe these :)
The ones with the X's are the ones which get used the most.


You can NEVER go wrong with oranges & berries ladies!

Some dupes that I use are:
Orange: MUFE Eyeshadow- Tangerine 18 (vibrant matte orange)
Berry: MAC Fushia Powder Blush

What color of blush is your favorite?

WDF?!?!? Girlllll


Those two words were the first thing out of my mouth when I seen this pic!

Couldn't someone tell her that her foundation was off...

Probably NOT..shit it's Beyonce..

LOL.. No But it's hard.. To tell someone and NOT hurt there feelings..

A good friend of mine always wears a shade that is 3 shades too light for her BUT I honestly don't have the heart to tell her its off. Why you ask??

Because she is always so confident in it!

So my question for you is would you tell a friend if her foundation was off?
