The Resolute Beauty Blogger- August 2014

Resolute Beauty Blogger August 2014

Hi Ladies!  Beauty Bloggers Shalunya from Shalunya and Boyet and El from Glossy Glam Blog teamed up to create The Resolute Beauty Blogger. They wanted to do this to not only stay on track with their Beauty Blog Resolutions for 2014 but also to give other beauty bloggers the chance to join in on the action. 

So I'm into my third month of this and still making good progress!!

Blogging Goals

1. Set Up A Blogging Schedule- Still sticking to my Sunday, Tuesday and Friday but there will be a special post tomorrow for the actual 1 year anniversary of my blog!!

2. Change Up The Current Style- This is still in the works. I've been talking to my cousin about how I want to change the site a bit. I also have been thinking about new series to start doing and I actually found my camera and the charger! I also found an editing program on my computer so my videos can start to look better.

3. Learn More About Blogging- I have been surfing the web and researching different blogging tips and the actual history of blogging. I didn't know blogging has only been around for 20 years! It has grown and changed so much during that time! I love all the info I'm finding!

4. Attend A Blogging Event- Yea.....still looking for one, I hope I find something soon!

5. Proof Read Better- I was looking at a post I did last week and found a few typos! Now I read my post out loud and make corrections as I go. 

6. Get Calendar And Blogging Book- I have been using both so much with writing ideas, taking notes on products I've used and mapping out my schedule of when I want to post things. I feel so organized!!

Personal Goals

1. Finding Myself, Figuring Out What I Want To Do- In my post last month, I found these three questions to answer. I'm working on the first one, "Who are you?" and it's really making me think about myself and who I really am. 

2. Wear Makeup More Often- I have been doing this more and can't wait for Fall to wear my berry, wine and red lipsticks! I'm trying to put a good dent in my stash before IMATS next year lol!!

3. Wear Skirts And Dresses More Often- I have been sticking to this and need to get some stockings for Fall and Winter. I had to throw out a bunch because they were too small or had runs. 

4. Use BBW Stash- You guys will be proud that I used two of my favorite discontinued scents last month!! I had to hide that Cool Coconut Surf lol! I can't wait to start wearing Japanese Cherry Blossom and Twilight Woods in the Fall.

5. Be More Prepared and Organized- This has been off and on last month but I'm still working on it. It helps so much when I pack everything the night before so the mornings run smooth. 

6. Not Stress So Much- Siting outside on my lunch break has been helping a lot. I just love listening to the nature and having nothing on my mind. I didn't have too many melt downs last month and been feeling more calm.

So that is it on the Blogging and Personal goals. Have you set goals for yourself? How have you been coming along with them? Comment below and let me know!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
