Here are a list of ideas that you can easily grab from your closet & maybe get a few extra items at the stores & put it together for a night out. I swear this won’t break the bank & you’ll still feel chic with what you have in your closet. Literally, I know you babes have at least one or a couple of these pieces in your closet — that’s why I choose these costumes looks for you because it’s super easy to pull it together.

Feeling Unmotivated???

Hey Babes!

Are you feeling overwhelmed or unmotivated? Like the whole world is weighing down on you? I know that feeling, I know how it feels to never catch a break & just run on empty. I know how it feels to go to sleep & wake up doing the same thing over & over again just to make ends meet; to do something that you are not passionate about. I am tired and am tired of feeling that way. So, I decided to take control and change the things that makes me unhappy, starting now!

You only live one life & you got to live it your best.  Do not let fears or doubt stop you from pursuing what you love & is passionate about. If you fail, its okay, you get back up & do it again. Just know that you are trying. It’s better to start now than start 10 years from now or not even try it at all. 

I hope this quote can encourage everyone who is reading this to always follow their hopes & dreams & never give up because of the doubts & fears. Remember the doubts & fears will only hold you back in life. I encourage you babes to read a positive quote every morning & I bet that can slowly start changing your mind set. If you start thinking about the doubts & fears, read this quote out loud at least 10x in the morning. I bet it will make a huge impact on your thinking!

I just want you babes to know that you are not alone & you are in control of your own life. You can do anything that you want if you set your mind to it.

Always,

YourBasicBabe!

What’s Happening in October???

Hey Babes!

October is finally here!!! Lets get all these excitements & plans started. If you are unsure on what to do in October, here are a list of things that I gather on what you can do with your friends of family. I find this list very fun, but important to do in October, especially with the upcoming holidays.

Babes, you can start anywhere on the list that you want, but first, movie nights are a must. What a great way to catch up on a season of your favorite shows or spend quality times with your close ones. With all the fun things aside, babes, you have to start thinking about budgeting for the upcoming holidays & staying healthy.  I know it can be a pain or difficult to where or how you should start, but I am here for you. This is just a list to get you started for October, but stay tune for more blog posts about how to budget and maintain your weight during this wonderful time of the year. 

Always,

Fall Must Have Starter Essentials!

Hey Babes!

Check out my MUST have Fall Essentials List. Ya’ll know that Fall is here & I wanted to share some of my favorite products with you babes for this wonderful season.

During this time of the year, I like to switch up my hand soaps & candles scent; Apple & cinninamon scent is a must for Fall. As I switch up my soaps & candles, I also change my skin routine as well & prep it for the upcoming cold weather. My skin type is a combo of dry & oily; with the cold weather it tends to be more dry. I would replace my normal mositurize for an intense hydration one. I love using the First Aid Beauty moisturizer; I notice it help a lot with my skin to become less dry & flaky. Also, dont forget the lip scrub, I don’t know about ya’ll, but this is a MUST for me as well because my lips tends to be more dry during the colder weather. Don’t forget to switch your lip & nail colors as well. This is the season to go darker & pull it off looking fashionalby cute.

Who loves wearing cardigans, scarves & cute rainboots? Me! I love to dress my best & still feel comfortable. You could never go wrong with adding layers with a cardigan, paring it with some cute rainboots, & topping it off with a faboulous Oblong scraf. Next, I am a coffee addict & around this I just love drinking from my Fall coffee mug, especially when it’s my favortie season! Time to get into the spirit & go bold babes!

Always,

YourBasicBabe!
