    Spring Beauty Favorites | 2019

    Over the past several months, I’ve been getting back into beauty and makeup. When I first started my blog, makeup was my main content. I used to do reviews, first impressions, empties, and more. Since I’m currently on the mend from surgery, I’ve had to find another hobby to focus on for a few weeks that didn’t involve dead lifts. A lot of these favorites you might recognize from my recent Mexico Packing List. Turns out, all my picks for our spring vacation were perfect for traveling and every day looks. All of these products help with perfecting my base which is essential to any makeup look. These picks are…

    How To Maintain a Work-Life Balance

    Between work (both jobs), the gym, nutrition, family, and maintaining a social life, sometimes I’m not sure how I make it through some work weeks. Work is an important part of my life and I take it seriously. Not only because it’s how I make an income, but because it allows me to grow – professionally and personally. That being said, work doesn’t need to fully consume your life. In fact, in my opinion, it shouldn’t. Obviously, I’m all about balance (hello – Angela’s Balanced Life!), and I used to think that that meant with my fitness, food, and social life. But it’s more than that. Balance is important in…
