New Years Goals!

Hello Beautifuls! Happy New Year’s to all of you beauties. I hope you all had an amazing time ringing in the New Year with family and friends. We kept it really simple at the Boucha home, we went out to dinner and were home by 9pm, it was a wild night. I was able to call my mom from the future, which was pretty funny and so weird that I was already in the year 2019 and my parents where waking up on New Years Eve. Since, we were so “wild” we went on a little adventure and took Jason ice skating for the first time. It was about the cutest thing I have ever seen. Before, getting on the ice he spotted a little train and it was the first thing he wanted to ride. He has a little obsession with trains or as he calls them “choochoo”, he had his money ready for his train fare and everything. Jason didn’t do much skating due to him going all limp noodle when he was put on the ice so, daddy did much of the skating and pushing him around. I stood on the sidelines and took as many pictures and videos as I could and I didn’t trust myself on the ice with my squishy or trust my husband to get good pictures. Needless to say, we all had a great time and made some awesome memories with my little family. Look how cute my little squishy looked all geared up for the ice.

Now, onto a little rewind of my goals last year and my new goals for this year. In the year 2018, I felt like I accomplished a lot of the goals I set for myself. Last year, I wanted to revamp my wardrobe and I actually did it. Living in Japan, most of the women are so well put together so, I felt inspired to step up my game. I also set a goal for my education, and I’m getting closer to finishing my certification course. Last year, I put up some items I wanted to get and I am so grateful that I achieved getting all of the items I wanted. One of the biggest goal I had last year was going home and seeing my family. Although, I accomplished some of my goals 2018 through in some surprises my way but, who doesn’t like surprises.

My 2019 goals have little less materialistic and more travel and working on myself. This year my main goal is going to Tokyo Disneyland, even if all my other goals don’t happen, going to Tokyo Disneyland will make 2019 an amazing year. Along, with going to Disneyland, I would like to travel to different places in Japan. One of the places that we are for sure going to this year is Okinawa, to see the beautiful beaches and spend time with our friends. In 2019, I would like to lose a few pounds, I’m not trying to be a Victoria Secret model or anything, I would just like to go back to pre baby weight. I want to work on reading more books and watching less Netflix, I want to be the example for my son and at the age he is at right now he copies everything mommy and daddy does. I’m hoping I will be able to potty train my toddler this year, so this can go one or two ways I either go crazy by the end or I’m one happy mama and I have a potty trained toddler. Sooooo, wish me luck! Finally, I would LOVE to reach 100 followers or more here on my blog by the end of the year.

Favorite Summer Outfits.

Hello beautifuls! It’s hump day y’all, another week is almost gone and in just a few days the month will be gone. Speaking about months flying by, my favorite season, fall is almost upon us. For some people fall starts September 23rd, but for me it start August 31st. I like having my home decorated the first day of September.

Since, the summer is coming to an end for me, I just wanted to share some of my favorite summer outfits. I was very fortunate to have been in the sunshine state for most of my summer. For some reason I get inspired to step up my style when I’m in Florida, it can be the beautiful style the people have there and the people places that inspire me.

My first outfit is a romper/dress from American Eagle. It’s such a cute and summery piece. Not many rompers look cute, but this totally takes the cake. On top of it being super cute, it’s totally practical for being a mom chasing after a toddler.

Now, this outfit makes me really happy. I mean how can I not be happy when I’m wearing rose gold Minnie Mouse ears. My shirt is from a Japanese store called uniqlo, which is now in the states and it made me smile to see a similar store and the shorts are from aerie. Paired my cute ears and outfit with some Jack Rogers sandals.

On to my chilling on the hammock outfit. Besides the cardigan and the jacks, this outfit came from the MCX, the store on base. This outfit was comfortable and chic. I had to be comfortable for a little shopping spree I had with my best friend and at the same time not die of a heat stroke.

This is a little more of a risky outfit but I love it. The outfit is from aerie, when I was trying these pieces on at the store I thought it would look ugly, but I felt great and felt confident.

The white dress with flowers and the mustard polka dot dress are both from my favorite store, Target! I’m excited to transition the polka dot dress into fall and pair it with some booties.

The last dress I bought for less than a dollar, how you may ask? Well, I found this gem at the thrift store I work at. This was brand new with tags and it was a piece I couldn’t pass up. It’s not something I would have ever thought of wearing but, I’m trying to step up my wardrobe and this screamed summer.

I hope you all liked my outfits, which one is y’alls favorite?

But First, Makeup.

Hello Beautifuls! How many girls go into Sephora or Ulta and feel like they have died and gone to heaven? I’m sure it’s not only me. Now, I’m no beauty guru or have near as much makeup as they do, but I guess I have a pretty good amount of makeup. Makeup makes me feel confident and like I can take on the world. I still feel beautiful without makeup, but it gives me a little confident boost. I did not start getting into makeup until I was about 18 years old. I use to be more of a powder, eyeliner, and mascara kinda girl. Now I have to beat the face and slay. I don’t do my makeup very often, you know being a mother of a toddler and all. I usually do my makeup while he takes his afternoon nap. But, sometimes I’m so tired and have so much to do and I don’t have time to do a full face so I usually put concealer, powder, mascara, and eyeliner and call it a day. Down below I am going to talk about my favorite go-to products I use when I do a full face, from primer to setting spray.

 

LRG_DSC02813[1554]

This is by far my favorite primer at the moment. It makes my makeup look so smooth and flawless. This is the Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer. You can find it in Sephora for $44.00.

LRG_DSC02820[1555]

I have to foundations I use, but this is the one I reach for the most. It’s kind of annoying because it doesn’t have a pump, it has a dropper. Besides this little inconvenience its a great foundation, it wears beautifully without getting very cakey on the face. I either use my beauty blender or the tarte brush seen in this picture. It’s the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. it can also be found at Sephora for $44.00.

LRG_DSC02839[1560]

As you can see I am scraping the edges of this concealer. I don’t know what tarte created and did but, this is the amazing. It is so full coverage and so blendable, it is just simply amazing. Like I said before, sometimes I do not have the time to sit there and blend my foundation and do all this extra stuff. So, I just grab this tarte shapetape concealer and put a few dot under my eyes to  cover my black circle put some powder foundation and I am good to go. It is exclusively at Ulta and believe the tarte website for $27.00 , but if you need to know your shade you can go check them out at Ulta.

LRG_DSC02823[1556]

This right here is my holy grail for setting powders. It has got to be the most amazing powder ever! I set my whole face with this an a little goes a long way. Some setting powders leave a white cast and if taking a picture with flash it sure will have a flashback, but not this. I absolutely love this. It is a but pricey, compared to other setting powders, but to me this is worth every penny. This is the Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder, it is available at Sephora for $55.00. (I got this when they have the VIB rouge sale going on.)

LRG_DSC02836[1559]

These are my go-to blush and bronzer. The Becca Blush pallet has three beautiful blushes, this can’t be purchased it was a holiday collection from last year. But the bronzer is available at Ulta for $28.00. I love how bronzy it make my skin look. It brings a lot of product, I use this every time I do my makeup and I still have not hit pan. These two product sure bring my face back to life after foundations and powder.

LRG_DSC02834[1558]

Now we are getting into highlight. By far my favorite part of my makeup routine. This is a must. I can’t walk out the house without glowing to Jesus. I have many highlighter but this pallet right here, IS EVERYTHING! I was in Japan when this came out and I had my beautiful madre go get me this. She grabbed the last one in that store. This is a limited edition ABH Nicole Guerriero highlight pallet, so it was a big deal that I got it. There are 6 blinding highlighters. I mean this has me shinning like a diamond every time. I do not know what I am going to do once I hit pan.

LRG_DSC02826[1557]

These three are my go to eyeshadow pallets. I can created any eye look with these three. All three are super pigmented and blendable. The Lorac pallet was a holiday collection, but Lorac always comes out with a pro pallet during the holidays. The other two are at Sephora the ABH Modern Renaissance pallet is $42.00 and the small Huda Beauty pallet is $27.00. It is very compact and easy to travel with. I love burgundy and pinks, both the ABH and Huda pallet give me those colors. I use to always go for a brown and gold eye look, but I wet out of my comfort zone and I have never looked back.

LRG_DSC02844[1561]LRG_DSC02848[1562]

Finally we get to mascara, eyeliner, and lips. My favorite mascara use to be Too Faced better than sex, but it always start to crumble and flake on my face. Then I found tarte light, camera, lashes, found at Sephora for $23.00. If you aren’t blessed like me and don’t have long, full lashes, this makes them look like they are. It is amazing. My favorite eyeliner is the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel eye Crayon Eyeliner at Sephora for $25.00. It is super black, I like to put it in my lower waterline to give a intense dark look. And my go-to lip has been just a lip liner from NYX and the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss at Sephora for $34.00. It make my lips look glossy and full.

Keep Calm, Christmas Break is Here.

Today was the last day of my fall semester, And I could not be any happier. I passed both my classes with high B’s. I have not been in school for about two years. I attended college before and I could have finished my associates degree by now, but my life took a different route. It took the route of getting married and starting a beautiful family and would not have wanted it any other way. I would eventually like to attend school for nursing. Being in Japan makes it a little difficult to do any nursing programs. So, for now, I am just accumulating credits instead of doing nothing for three years. I will eventually finish school and walk across the stage. It does not matter how long it takes to get there, as long as I get there.

Going back to college after two years was tough. I doubted myself so much. The first week of the semester I had a breakdown. I started to cry because stress and feeling like a failure. I was so overwhelmed with being a mom, a wife, and a student. I felt like my son was not getting the attention he wanted and needed. I felt like my house was turned upside down. Getting a thirty-minute workout, a day was a miracle, if I was able to do so that day. My amazing husband was my greatest support system. He encouraged me every day and helped me with my stress. I would not have been able to get through it if it was not for my husband. Eventually, I was able to manage everything that was thrown my way. I do not know how all you beautiful mama’s who work, go to school and have a baby keep yourself sane. You all are amazing. For any mama’s who are in school or are starting school and feel like you can not handle it, do not let it get you down. It will all eventually come together and it you will start to kick butt! It all takes time, if you are feeling overwhelmed just take a step back, breathe. Remember you are all that and a bag of chips and you can do whatever you set your mind to. There is nothing wrong with taking a break from school if it comes really overwhelming. Like I said before, it does not matter how long it takes to get there, as long as you get there.

Be~YOU~tiful

Society has made it impossible to love one self. It does not matter who you are, if you are skinny or fat, a stay at home mom or a working mom, society will always find a way to make you feel down about yourself. After having my baby back in June 2016, I have been very insecure of my body. I have always been a petite girl. During my pregnancy, I gained thirty pounds and have yet been to lose my baby weight. For the longest time I was not happy with who I saw in the mirror. Even before my pregnancy I felt that I was not pretty or skinny enough. Now, I look back at my old pictures and say to myself,” Wow! Girl you were so skinny.” I would always find something wrong with me. I was so insecure with myself, I would only post selfies. It was not until a few months ago, that I started posting full body pictures. I realized that I am beautiful and I have to love myself regardless. I have to remember that my body is a beautiful thing, it carried a little human for nine months. No matter what size we are, we are all beautiful in our own way. If you having a hard time with your weight and are not confident, just keep in mind that you are beautiful and you are more than a dress size. If you are happy in your own skin, do not let anyone tell you otherwise. You can do anything and be anything. I hope you can realize how special you are in time. Be you and be proud.
