March Glam Bag Review

MarchGlamBag

This months Glam bag was interesting. I received an eyeshadow brush, green eyeliner, argan oil (for my hair), liquid bronzer, and a liquid lipstick.

  1. Marc Anthony: Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco 3 Day Smooth Perfect Blow Dry Cream.

This was my favorite for this month. It’s a smoothing cream that you apply after taking a shower.  I loved it because it not only makes your hair smell good but it calms the frizzy mess my hair loves to be. I put it on right after I’m out of the shower and I let it sit in there for about 5 minutes or longer depending on how much time I have. After letting it sit in I blow dry it and I think that it makes blow drying my hair that much faster. Once I run out I think I might stop by my local drugstore and get another.

 2. OFRA Cosmetics: Green Go Eyeliner

I was so disappointed when it came to this eyeliner. The reason why I was disappoint was because it didn’t have any pigment to it. I kept apply it on and when I finally got the color to show 5 minutes later it would be gone. Let just say I used it once and that will be my last.

3.Beau Gâchis® Paris: Eyeshadow Brush

Honestly I didn’t see a huge difference when using this brush. I felt like it was an okay product but I still like my Naked pallet brush better.

  1. NYX Cosmetics: Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

I love everything about this lipstick except for the shade of color I got. At first I thought it would be a nice pink or dark purple. But sadly it was neon pink and that was definitely not my shade. So most likely I’m going to give it away to whoever wants it. I would buy this product again but I would pick a better shade that suits me.

  1. TEMPTU: Warm Glow Bronzer

What I think I like about this product is that you don’t have to be a make-up guru to apply it on. It is extremely lightweight and easy to apply. Another thing I like about this product is you can easily build up color so you don’t leave the house with brown streaks.

I hope you enjoyed my review and my cute gif too! Feel free to show some love and like this post.

Spring into Cleaning

Something that I look forward to ever year is Spring Cleaning!

Yes, I know that I am weird but something about cleaning out the negative energy relaxes me. It also gives me an excuse to go through everything that I have been holding on to and get rid of some old things.

This year its going to take more than a day since I’m making my bf do it too. It will be a challenge since he is a hoarder. So to make things easier for us I made a spring cleaning checklist.

Spring Cleaning

Discovering yourself

The other day I read an article talking about understanding yourself. The article was about this women who is an introvert and how she embraced it. It was titled Inside The Introvert , I recommend you read it too.

Many people like myself want to be to outgoing but there are days where I just want to stay in and read a book. For the author she says that there has to be a balance when it comes to being introverted. You have to know when your mind and body need alone time and when they need to be social.

I related to her when she said, “I’m learning a lot about myself as I explore my personality, and it’s been helpful to recognize why I am the way I am.”

As I’m getting older I’m start to notice where things from my personality strain from. I find myself constantly working on myself and trying to do shadow work. So I ran across a personality quiz that explains what kind of 16 personalities you have.

To be honest I took the test two times. Since I’m being honest the first time I took the test I would answer some questions with the idea that I don’t view myself like that . But as I was getting ready to post this I thought let me take the test again and see what I get. I decided to answer it this time HONESTLY. There were some questions I was hesitant to agree with but here is what I got.

Here is what I got the first time.

It said that I was 57% Extraverted, 84% Intuitive, 70% Feelings over Logic, 61% Judging and 54% Assertive.

Now the second time I got 58% Introverted, 79% Intuitive, 55% Feeling, 63% Judging, 74% Turbulent.

After reading it I completely agreed with every single word.

There are a lot of reason of why I am the way that I am. But there are moments when I catch myself asking why do you do that Erika?!? As I read my profile I started to understand some current feelings that I have been feeling lately.

My Weaknesses:

Sensitive

I am extremely sensitive and I hate it when people come after my values and beliefs. The reason I get so upset is because I respect others values and beliefs. I don’t question them on it or make them feel like they are beneath me so I don’t expect to be treated that way either.

Extremely Private

It because of that reason that I don’t share anything personal. I am VERY selective when it comes to being open with someone because I don’t trust people that often.

Perfectionistic

Ever since I was little I have been a perfectionistic. It has been a trait that can be appeal on a resume but can also be used as self-sabotage. Always thinking that nothing is ever good enough.

Always Need to Have a Cause

When I went to FIDM I would always hear amazing stories from my professors of the jobs they had and how passionate they were about them. It pushed me to look for jobs that represent something. I need goals and I need to feel like I’m making a difference because if not I feel restless and disappointed.

As I read more I found myself answering all these questions I had. Whether it be about romantic relationships, friendships, career paths or workplace habits it got me to the T.

I am beyond happy that this quiz stumbled upon me because it answered everything I was questioning. I hope you take it yourself and discover some things you didn’t even know about yourself.

Feel free to share what kind of personality you got and whether you agree with it or not.
