Hello friend,

This time of year should be joyous for everyone and to think of all good things that happen to us this year.

Even though December has been a sucky month for me, I had a pretty successful year. I got to drive a Durango and a cop car for about a week, each. I never really knew or understood how cars have such a powerful effect on people. It’s almost like a right of passage to experience how a bad ass car can make you feel. The first car I drove was the Durango and it was a beauty! Continue reading “Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, and a Merry Christmas!”

Mundane Friday: New artist music

I love sharing the type of music I listen to, so why not make it for my Mundane Friday post? (mylifewithhelene.tumblr.com via giphy)

Hey friends,

On this blog, I talk a lot about music. It helps me concentrate with my writing, it makes me feel in a better mood, sometimes I even play music to help me sleep. While on the YouTube, I like to search different things, today I want to show you some music that I think everyone needs to hear:

Let’s Talk Tuesday: Skin, of all types #Minimalism

Being a minimalist, I learned that sometimes even simple things, such as a skin care routine can be simple. Click to read (www.theloop.ca via giphy)

Hello friends,

As many of you know, I love being on YouTube. There’s a lot of videos that come my way and I find myself watching a lot of make up tutorials as well as skin care routines. Men, women, teens, and sometimes kids all have a way of cleansing their skin, but how much is too much?

As a teen, in high school and my first years at college, I had points where my acne was out of this world! I mean it was bad. In high school, when hormones just want to ruin your life, my acne started out small; on my cheeks. To stop it in it’s tracks I tried the popular product at the time proactive. In a rush, (for what? I still don’t know), I tried all three products at the same time and gave myself a chemical burn on my face, and my face hasn’t been the same then. After then, I didn’t think to stop all use of products but I did cut back and gradually introduce each one Continue reading “Let’s Talk Tuesday: Skin, of all types #Minimalism”

Mundane Friday: I really want to start a business

I’ve been thinking about opening a business but, my mind goes a mile a minute… (vh1 via giphy)

Hello friends,

December has been one crazy month for me, even in the beginning. Many bad things has happen; I’ve even considered quitting my job and becoming a full time layer of the bed. Other than that — because it doesn’t pay the bills — I’ve really been wanting to start my own business. Not for the fact of working for myself and having the option of never leaving my home, but the satisfying feeling, of creating something people want.

When I graduated high school, I didn’t have much time to think about my future. Not that I was a slacker, but it never Continue reading “Mundane Friday: I really want to start a business”

Let’s Talk Tuesday: Learning a new language can be easy

You ever wanted to learn a new langauage? Well here are some resources. (soulpancake via giphy)

Hello friends!

As some of you my know, I’m in college and one of my classes this semester is Spanish. It dawned on me that when learning a knew language, some people tend to think that they don’t have the resources to learn. Today I’m going to change that. Learning a new language is just as easy as turning your phone on to see what time it is.

Trying to make any language my second language I’ve done a lot of research. What apps to download, books to read, videos to watch, anything. A lot of these are going to teach you the basics of the language and even when you feel like you want to go out in the world and try your knew skills, Continue reading “Let’s Talk Tuesday: Learning a new language can be easy”

Mundane Friday: Update on my book…

A book that I was writing for the Month of November, is not done, but at least I have cover!

Hello friends,

Last week I had mentioned that I was participating in the challenge to write a book in 30 days; I did not succeed. So many things were happening in my life, and I hate using that excuse because, you make time for things you value. People spend hours on there phone, watching YouTube videos of people showing what a $4,800 apartment can get you in New York, instead of, oh let’s say, writing more chapters in their book (so not me though). I just couldn’t help it, writing for a blog and writing for a novel are two very different things. I enjoy writing for my blog because I can talk about multiple different things, coming up with a story is hard, here’s why.

I’m not sure if I had mentioned but I recently just started watching The Game of Thrones. George R.R. Martin was the author of the best-seller books, “A Song of Ice and Fire,” I guess some people read the book and was like, yo, I can see this as a TV series and a bunch of other writers by the Continue reading “Mundane Friday: Update on my book…”

Let’s Talk Tuesday: Being sick around the holidays

Hey friends 😐,

It almost seems to me that every year around the holidays I get sick. It’s almost like a tradition for me; eat thanksgiving feast, talk, nose runs, coughing everywhere, than I’m sick the whole December. It just never fails!

I remember the very first time I got sick around the holidays, I was just a little girl. In Florida with my whole family, (not every single person because we wouldn’t fit), but just enough to where there was a person in every corner of the house we rented. I remember that day like it was yesterday, Continue reading “Let’s Talk Tuesday: Being sick around the holidays”
