Random Updates

Beauties, I have so many updates to share with y'all! An announcement, new products I'm about to test out, and an update on my 2017 goals! My announcement: I get to model on a local morning show segment! San Antonio Living (weekday mornings at 10 AM) has a fashion segment called "Taylor'd for You" and the host has asked me to model a Date Night outfit! I will be sure the link the video once it's online. 

I have two new products that I am beyond excited to try out and share. First things first, I cannot wait to review these fabulous BeautyCounter products that my coworker Danielle has just started selling! She gifted me an amazing skincare set, including a face oil specifically designed for oily skin. They are a brand known for putting quality first, always focusing on ingredients because the beauty industry is basically an unregulated industry.


Secondly, I just purchased a Grace & Stella miracle hair brush (it's actually a hair straightener)! WHAT? If this works, A) it may literally change my hair routine for life and B) I will be SO ticked that I wasn't an online shopper at age 12 (oops! I just looked and it's sold out online. eek- I ordered it only a week ago).

Now, onto my very sad update about my goals. Of my 2 budgets, I was only disciplined enough to stick to 1 (my work lunch budget). I spent more than double my "Fun Budget"... :/ And my 49 days of workout...? Yea, I only made it through 9. So really, my 2017 goal is this: BE MORE DISCIPLINED. I would say self-discipline is an area I've always struggled in. I'm a serial procrastinator. I love to sleep in and eat desserts. Reducing my sugar intake while pregnant, was basically the only time I've stuck to a dietary restriction (quite honestly, I've been blessed with one of the most kickass metabolisms ever. Right up until pregnancy). So, here I am. Documenting my journey towards self-discipline and asking for any tips that have helped you. That's all. No neat, tied-up ending. Just me, being honest with you.

Note from Hope: The BeautyCounter items I discussed in this post were gifted to me. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
