Cupcake candle

Today in the life,
I have so much homework due this week and I thought I would share my study habits that I normally practice in order to get through it all in one peace!

Shown below is my new cupcake candle. I won it in a raffle at a long time friend's baby shower. It is the cutest thing and it smells like milk chocolate :) so delicious! My room smells amazing lol.

So this is the first thing I do when I have my room to myself (my fiancé and son are out getting haircuts) is to light a good smelling candle so that I can calm down, breathe in the good and breathe out the bad.

Next up, I turn on the radio. Ugh watching television and doing homework does not work well for me, but put on some slow R&B and I'm in good shape to get some major work done.

But first, I spend 5 to 10 minutes on social media... ugh I know that darn internet, but it gets my internet fix done with, and I can finally focus on my work :) 

When others are around, I put in earphones to keep from getting distracted or I simply find a quiet place. In my house though there are very seldom places to have a quiet room to yourself lol so I sometimes have to leave and study at school. 

Well hope this helps ya out!

Lips of the season

Today in the life,  

I decided to wear my new lipstick, "Liar"by Urban Decay to work, and I have to say that I am in love with this nude color. It has a slight pink tint that is perfect for my darker skin. I've always had trouble finding a nude lipstick that would work for my skin,  go figure I would go to the new Ulta beauty store that just opened by my house and luck out! Eeek so excited. Especially because according to recent fashion shows,  natural is the "in" look! I love natural beauty so I'm glad I will be in style this fall season! So you can understand my excitement.

Anyways, as an update from my previous posts, I participated in the career fair at school last week, and it went amazing! At least 5 companies were interested so I'm over the moon with joy that it went well :)

The engineering companies were from allover the US though so I will have to see what would be best for my family. My original plan was to stay in Colorado because I absolutely love it here, but I'm keeping an open mind now to move to a different state. I know God will lead me in the right direction!

Attached are some of this years Fall Collection,  displaying natural beauty :) Enjoy!

The most exciting time of the year!

Tree of Color: Fall, when the colors of change are upon us.
By: Crystal Lobato

Today in the life,

I have been thinking about Fall and what that means... my son will be turning 8 this year!!!OMG 8 years OLD! Which means I will be 25! Hmmm... a quarter of a century this year. To be honest I was a little sad that I was already going to be 25 and my little boy is growing up before my eyes everyday with his own personality and likes and dislikes. It's absolutely amazing to watch your child grow into an amazing little person. Well... I was first sad and then realized that the last 25 years have been such an adventure! I can't remember ever having a dull moment. I lived my life happy in those 25 years and I can only wait and see what the next 25 years has in store for me!

Many people love that I am so optimistic and I love it too, because nobody wants to live a sad boring life and honestly it will only be sad and boring if you see it that way.

I was pregnant at 16yrs old. I graduated high school in the top of my class. I was accepted into one of the best engineering colleges in the USA. I have been with my fiancé for over 8 years! I am a senior preparing to graduate with my bachelor's degree in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering in May of 2015. So all in all I have to say I have had an amazing ride so far. Thanks to my friends and family, life has been absolutely excellent! Now your homework is, to list at least 7 things that are amazing in your life 😊 Why 7? Well because 7 is my favorite number.

Anyways, besides birthday fun and madness, my anniversary is coming up and who can forget Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! My favorite holidays ever! Super excited for Fall and Winter.

*Side note: nervous for career day at school next week. Eeeeeeek 300 companies looking for engineers and everyone practically tackling the recruiters for their attention haha. Wish me luck!

Much love,
