    the perfect nude nail & at-home manicure tips

    This will be a quick blog post that will help you step up your at-home manicure! As soon as the warmer months come around, my schedule becomes packed! And since I’ve been on a nail polish kick lately, I’ve had to create my own at-home manicure process and find products that give salon-like results. After many trial and errors, and testing a ton of polish colors, I think I’ve found the perfect at-home manicure and nude nail. I love having my nails done, but I really can’t afford going to the salon twice per month. I think that’s most of us, right? That being said, I can’t stand when the…

    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 I stay organized | plan with me

    I decided to give the good, ole planner a shot again in 2019. Some may think that physical planners are a thing of the past, but I disagree. To me, there’s something very satisfying about writing down tasks and crossing them off your list once complete. Since switching back to a traditional pen and paper planner, I feel more organized with work and social activities. And it’s a bit of stress reliever! I pretty much live by my planner. I use it to plan my gym routine, work tasks, social activities, and also to write down experiences throughout the week. In 2018, I was doing more of what I would…

    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…

    Where I Buy Clothes Secondhand

    Recently, I shared my reasons for quitting fast fashion and it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made in the past few years. Since I’m no longer buying from traditional stores at the mall, I’ve started exploring new options for adding clothing and accessories to my closet. This had led me to get creative when searching for specific items and also have a more open mind to secondhand clothes in general. Now how does one buy clothes when not buying from your regular fashion stores? At first, I wasn’t too sure myself. Of course I knew about thrift stores, but even I’ll admit that that can be time consuming with little…
