Sephora Haul & Weekend Shenanigans

Firstly my weekend was pretty busy, but tons of fun. My church passed out 18,000 door hangers to invite people to the launch of our new Pasadena campus. Exciting times for sure! I wasn’t quite sure of I was going to make it walking all day but for the most part I was okay. Second half was a little rough. I had so much fun though. My group was so full of joy. I can’t wait to see how many lives are changed by these door hangers. I walked 11 miles by the end of the day. Including some stairs at apartments. *two snap* for leg day outside.

The true test for my body was today, BUT I woke up fine. I feel amazing!!! A little sore but amazing. I guess this going to the gym thing is working.

Then after church today my girlfriends and I went to PF Changs and of course Sephora. Here’s what I picked up.

I love my time with my ladies! We laugh and talk. I am so grateful for them and the things that make each one of them unique. Plus we had amazing service at PF Changes. You should already know how I feel about customer service. It’s very important.

Geez what a great weekend! What did you do? Let me know what shenanigans you got into.

XOXO,

January Goals

image

It’s the first day of the new year and month. Which means we make goals around here. Making my goals actually got me super excited for the year. To be real I wasn’t as stoked for this  new year as in the past, but seeing my goals on paper shifted me. Write the vision and make it plain.

Fitness & Health: To get back in the gym at least 3 – 5 times a week. I’ve been going here and there but my goal for this month is consistency. NO MATTERS WHAT!

Money Management: I revised my budgets today and I plan on sticking to them. As much as I had cut out spending eating out is as much as it increased last month. I need to stick to the amounts I set and not step out of it. I love eating out with friends the fellowship time is what I love. I wrote a list of fun free things we can do outside of eating. Plus I need to prep my healthy snacks so I’m not spending small amounts of money that add up to a lot at the end of the month. Another thing I set up is to having monthly meetings with my personal banker. This will help me asses where I am financially and if I am on track to reach my goals. I am extremely blessed with an awesome banker who calls me when he sees me spending to much, BUT sometimes I ignore him. Sorry Tony!

Writing: Last month I did not reach my goal of finding a writing group. Eek! I did take a few online classes and read articles but when I looked up groups I was overwhelmed. Some of them just seemed so critical. Alas I need to join one and will do just that the worst that can happen is people rip my work to shreds and I grow right. I actually think I’ll enjoy it once in the swing of things. So time to get it done. As far as guest posts that goal is becoming reality this month with a post I’ve already written. (More details to come later) I will still be submitting my work to publications. I made a goal to submit at least 3 articles this month.

YouTube: Before there was lizzypbeauty.com it all started on YouTube. I had wanted to start a channel for years before it was really even a thing, but always convinced myself I couldn’t do it. I gave it a go at the beginning of last year but became discouraged when I didn’t have the equipment to make my videos fancy. I really do love making videos and will work with what is in my hand. I have to much content I want to share via that platform that I can’t ignore any more.

Discipline: I need discipline in my life in a major way. Every area I fail in is due to a lack of discipline. Procrastination is not my friend if I plan accomplishing my goals I need to have more structure and stick to it. I’ve been treasure hunting in the bible all day for scriptures on discipline. Not really fun but helpful. Setting up a plan!

Those are some of my major immediate goals. Let’s attack this month head on and get it done.

Comment down below with a goal you have this month. Share how you plan to execute it if you want. Let’s help each other reach our goals.

XOXO,

Another Journal

Today one of my closest friends dropped by and brought me a Christmas present. Yay!!! It’s a beautiful journal/sketch book. It’s perfect and I love the thickness of the paper. I couldn’t even resist drawing in it right away. I love my friends they are so thoughtful.

The cover makes me think of a peaceful place. I kinda wish I knew where there was a tree close to me in real life. I would waste the day away writing and sketching. Dreaming of things to come trying to actualize each dream on a page. Writing the vision and making it plain.

Really journals are always testimony of my journey. The library of Lizzy my misadventures, thoughts, up and downs. This journal will be such a great start to my new year. If there is one thing you need it is a journal just try it. I promise it will change your life.

XOXO,

Weekend Indoor Shenanigans

image

My nails are New Years Eve ready. I’ve been obsessed with rose gold and white for a while. When I passed by a Forever 21 with a dress this exact color it inspired me. As for the dip on the tip *shrugs* just trying something new. For some reason these have me sangin bright lights and the big cityyyyy… Maybe I just need a pitch perfect watching session. Hope you enjoyed your last Saturday of the year.

It’s cold for me still didn’t make it to the gym and you know the struggle to breathe has been real. So I’ve just been turnin’ up as much as possible in my room. Masks, make up, and reading Ahh with a little Netflix on the side. Chill or nah? Livin’ on a prayer that the temperature will rise so I can turn up all the way. You know what I’m sayin? I would hate to be this way for nye. *runs* eucalyptus and spearmint treatments to the rescue. *Fingers crossed*

XOXO,

Lizzy P.
