3 TIPS ON HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU||GAIN THE CONFIDENCE YOU NEED.

Hey guys what is up?! Many times we lose ourselves in midsts of what she says, what he thinks and who’s looking. Everything we do seems to be triggered or motivated by all these thoughts that when we think about it, it makes no sense. Because of all these sufferings we go through I wanted to give you some tips on how to love and embrace yourself and how to pull off that confidence at your lowest. I feel like the only difference between someone who’s strong and one who appears not to be strong is their confidence. Let’s get right into it!

1. Acceptance and Understanding.

The first step to any sort of confidence is accepting yourself mentally and physically. Once you learn to accept who you are (in and outside) you learn to start loving yourself way in and out which builds that confidence because you know yourself, love yourself and you don’t doubt yourself.

2. Respect yourself.

Just like accepting yourself, learn to respect yourself to an extent that no one can put you down. Respect yourself in a way that you look after yourself (mentally and physically) so that you are proud of what you are and not ashamed to portray who you are. Respect your thoughts, ideas and emotions to a point where you know what your values are and what you can’t take. When I say respect yourself I mean take care of the person that you are and don’t let the wind blow you to a place you don’t want to be. 

3. Fix and Enhance yourself.

When I say fix yourself I don’t mean paying thousands of money and getting surgery I actually mean taking your time to actually look good. This could either be by doing your makeup, taking care of your skin and smelling fresh. People generally start feeling good in the inside when they feel good about their outside so make yourself feel better by enhancing yourself to your liking. Avoid following trends that won’t take you anywhere and that you don’t believe in, -stay true to yourself!

Those are my three tips to being the best you and gaining all the confidence you need. Know that confidence starts with you on the inside before it shines on the outside so work on all the insecurities and emotional factors before moving to the physical factors because trust me you can have a beat face and all the hottest fashion but without the confidence we’ll still be able to spot it and you won’t be happy too.

I hope these tips will help you on your journey to confidence and if you’d like me to do different segments on confidence then let me know.

ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR STAY IN PLACE FOUNDATION REVIEW. +VIDEO

 

19388714_1941015292845125_5112990277660859382_o.jpg

Hey guys welcome right back!! Today I will be reviewing the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation. I bought this foundation last year(2016) when I thought I would be doing my own makeup for prom and to say I am more than impressed is an understatement. This foundation has allowed more and more room for improvement for my foundation skills and has always got me looking like a doll at all times.

The foundation is truly full coverage that just a little bit goes a long way which also means saving a whole lot of product and it is light weight that your faces completely feels like there is nothing on your face. Unlike other foundations you wont feel like there is an extra layer on your face. I also love the fact that it has no texture. Your face still feels the same but a little more smoother.

The foundation does in some occasions oxidize  as well as transfer but its not something that is a huge problem because a little powder can easily solve that. I love that in its natural state the foundation is matte and gives off that natural look, non-oily look. The foundation does have SPF 10 which can be both an advantage and a disadvantage. The advantage would be that the foundation will protect your skin from the sun and the disadvantage is that your pictures will have some flash back when there is flash involved however because it is only SPF 10 the flashback is not that much.

However the foundation is really great. It lasts the whole day and no problem with it moving around and starting to crease. I bought my foundation for R550 at Edgars which can be a little pricey but for the amount of time the foundation lasted, I am not complaining.

So overall I would recommend the foundation especially to people who want that full coverage flawless looking finish. The foundation will not disappoint and will honestly give the best looks.

JOURNEYSPEAKS QUESTION AND ANSWER.

Journeyspeaks qna

Hey guys what’s good? Welcome to the first and ultimate Question and Answer!! I have always wanted to host a Q&A but have always been scared to go through with it because I didn’t have much influence. But you know what, We have been doing this for two years and I feel like we are ready to take this on!

Answer : High school was honestly a very fun experience but at the same time something I could say I learnt a lot from. I think most of the things I deal with generally in life and how I deal with them is based from the experiences from high school. One thing I could say I learnt from high school is to be calm and to analyse something from all angles before acting on it. You will never gain anything from making a noise about something you don’t understand.

Answer : Yes I have and to say it was tragic is an understatement. Life broke us apart and God decided to take him to heaven before we could even fully learn of each other.

Answer : Natural how? If you mean makeup wise then the highs would be, your confidence rises on a high and you feel put together. Literally no one can put you down when you know your makeup looks good however the low is that when you don’t have makeup on you feel insecure kinda. You get used to seeing yourself with no blemishes or dark spots that when you see them you feel naked almost.

Answer : I honestly don’t know! I haven’t been consistent with a particular makeup brand that I really can’t choose.I’m more of the girl who’s tried one of each brand through one product you feel?

Answer : Ambition. I like a person who wants more, who won’t accept less but at the same time a person who acts towards his ambitions. If you have ambition and you show qualities of a hard worker then honestly you’ve copped me because I like linking with a person whereby we can push each other to do more.

Answer : Both

 

Question : What is sex?

Answer
Here’s what Google says..



Answer : In five years time I see myself in another country doing content creating permanently and professionally on all platforms. I actually see myself focusing more on the television and music industry and doing more and much bigger creative work.

Answer : Firstly, I love the way and how I deal with tough situations. I’ve noticed how I never fail to bring myself up from tragic situations and I actually respect myself for that. Another thing I love about myself is how big heated I am and how I always look to help others even though I don’t benefit and lastly what I love about myself is how I always find something to make the day. Whether it’s by joking around or doing skits my days are always fun filled and full of laughter that I sometimes can’t deal.

Screenshot_2017-06-09-18-54-22-2

Answer : Lipstick! Girl I don’t know but I always have to have some type of lip product on my lips. I feel like a lipstick will always put a natural or a beat face on a higher level. So I always have a couple of colours in my bag.
Screenshot_2017-06-09-18-54-22-3

Answer : No and no. My family has never actually been the type for pets so I grew up not liking pets. I like people with pets but I don’t think I could ever handle one.

Answer : Firstly I actually wanted to do YouTube(I still do) as a way to reach out to people about the things I loved but YouTube needed more resources that I didn’t have and I felt as though blogging was easier to do plus I had everything for blogging so I started blogging instead.


Answer : Lol this actually makes me laugh. Honesty girl I don’t think there’s a way to get him back without you actually telling him you like him especially since you’re the one who left him. So talk to him and tell him how you feel. But sþince you say he blocked you maybe it’s sign to just move on from him.


Answer : Yes

HOW TO LOOK GOOD WHEN TRAVELLING.

Screenshot_2017-05-23-16-05-20-1

Hey guys what is up?! Can I get a round of applause for the back to back posts this week?!(thank you, thank you) Today I am coming at you with a fashion travel blog post – how to look good when you travel publicly.  It is one thing when you travel with your family and friends at the comfort of your own vehicle but it becomes another HUGE thing when you travel with people you don’t know because you’ve got to ditch those dirty socks and slippers into something lookable. So today I will give you tips and tricks to looking bomb  when travelling publicly. 

When I travel I forget that I’m actually travelling and go all out because I feel like looking good is always a main factor. If I look good and feel good then I’m gonna be popping the whole way. Also there is going to be other people and who knows your future husband could be sitting right next to you so always look good!

Be extra.

No, I don’t mean wearing glitter skirts and lady gaga heels I just mean don’t tell yourself that you are travelling. Actually, cancel that out. Take it as if what if someone decides to take a picture of you. So gout there to actually make a statement and a few eyes turn.

Face

Okay when I travel with family and friends I don’t like wearing makeup because I don’t want to be worrying about eyeliner smudging or touching up my lipstick. But that’s only when I’m traveling with my family. When I’m traveling publicly I like to step it up! You never know if you might just meet your future husband. So the tip is to make sure your face looks presentable – whether its by putting on a bomb ass beat face or well moisturized and hydrated face that’s up to you but make sure you look good! No eye crusts allowed! If you are gonna go for the natural look putting a bit of mascara and eyeliner won’t hurt and make sure your lips are always moisturized.

Outfit.

The tip here is to be comfortable (especially if you’re gonna be on the road for a long time) but also stylish at the same time. An easy way out would be wearing track suit pants and a matching sweat shirt or wearing leggings and an over the top shirt. However to step it up literally make an outfit that you would wear when you know you are gonna see your enemy but I would say a portable outfit is always the best to avoid having too many pieces and just have a jacket that will level up the outfit.

Here are some outfit Ideas.

Your bag/luggage1867c2d1305f96cf4b7b32cd643d822a

I think after looking at you, people always look at your bag. This is like the overall factor to the conclusion. So don’t be that one person with a ratchet looking bag that just screams no, have a legit bag that puts you on the mark and that you’re not ashamed of and don’t mind taking a picture with. Some cool bags to look at are MAHI leather bags.

 

Your hair.

Some people seem to think that travelling is an excuse to not do hair, – its not! I’m not saying come with a Rihanna hairstyle I’m just saying make sure your head looks presentable and put together. In fact do an easy hairstyles such as a bun or even presentable corn rows because you are gonna be sitting for a long time and you can’t be worrying about curls staying bomb. The tip here is to not be lazy with your hair because you could be looking good (outfit and face) but if your hair is not presentable then that’s gonna put the whole look down.

Be equipped.

Traveling comes with so many issues especially travelling by buses or taxies so always be prepared. Don’t have silly things like the weather putting you off the mark. The weather might just change so have a bomb ass jacket ready on the go. When it starts getting cold we don’t want to see weird jackets coming out make sure it’s a jacket that I’m gonna want and that goes with your actual outfit.

List of things to make sure you’re equipped.

  • Sunglasses
  • Hat or beanie
  • Jacket
  • Makeup wipes
  • Lipstick
  • Powder

And that is basically it! Looking good is how you present yourself on the  outside but also on the inside. So make sure you look good guys.  Put away that thought of I DON’T CARE  and actually care not for anyone else but for yourself too. Otherwise happy travelling guys! Thank you for reading and I hope this post helped someone out there.
