Got Bra-blems? Let's talk about it

Hellerr everyone (˵˚ ω ˚˵) 
Today I have an info-packed post for y'all that'll save lives! I don't think I just speak for myself when I say bras suck. Personally, I prefer sports bras or bralettes (if there's any that actually fit me) over actual bras because of all the "bra-blems" that get dragged along with them. But, alas! No more moaning and groaning, because today I have some quick tips and tricks for you, to help guide you through to having a successful bra day.

Let's start with the basics:

Next, how many of you knew that if you get a smaller waist band size you need to go up a cup?! Bet you didn't. ◕◡◕
Anyone else got Satan's claw marks chillen on their shoulders from weighed down straps? (oh the burden of large breasts)
Hate the doubled-up breasts that spill over the top? Full-coverage t-shirt bras ladies!!

 And my all time favorite, and biggest issue. The sleepy boobs that like to hang out at the bottom of my bra. Usually I just tighten my straps, and pull those babies back up. But if that doesn't work..

And that about sums it up! I hope these little tips help some of y'all out when preparing for a bra baring day. ThirdLove has an awesome selection (up to size F!) and has their signature half sized bras. Don't feel like a C anymore but not exactly a D? Np. C ½,. It's real, and it's here ladies. For me it's really hard to find good CUTE BRAS for my size (32DD) so I'm really excited to see a bra line that makes cute and comfy designs for the big girls as well *tears up* Continue reading for my recommended bras and more help links!

Inspo | Life

I hope everyone has started of their (school) year well! We're right around midterms about now and I know it sucks but we must persevere! I haven't been as productively academically and I'm not where I'd like to be career wise, at this point in my life I thought I'd be doing something a lot different. I realize I haven't been setting realistic goals and being honest with myself about where I'm going and what I want to do in order to stay motivated. I've been setting myself up to graduate in a major that I have no idea what I wan't to do with when I should really be analyzing what my passion is and setting myself up for that instead. Which seems like an obvious think to do I know, but some how my passions never struck me as something career-worthy in todays world. I know there are a lot of you out there still trying to find yourself and your passions as well! Which is why I wanna give a s/o to all ma ladies riding the struggle bus (。・ヮ・。) It's difficult and it definitely takes a toll on your self-esteem, ego and overall confidence in yourself and your abilities when you don't do well in school and don't know what you want to do. You're not alone! So, with that being said LET US SET GOALS WOOOO and how we can maintain and achieve. 

1. Asses where you're at without being too harsh on yourself whilst drowning in self pity. (it's ok if you dug yourself in a hole, but let us figure out now how we can get out :>)

2. Really look deep down and find you dream job, and what it takes to get there while considering all the skills necessary to do it well. (bb steps)

3. Set up your success:
  • Create your perfect study environment. This is something I've spent a lot of time trying to do, and out of all places my room is where I feel the most comfortable and motivated because of the environment I've created for myself.
  • Organization! I've really tried hard to use my planners etc for the past 3 years but it wasn't until recently (this semester) that I started using a calendar app on my Macbook to keep track of everything at school and it's honestly soooooo much easier. The app is called Sunrise Calendar and although I don't really like the mobile version, the desktop version is A+ in my books.
  • Work your ass off. Put in the time and effort you need. Easier said than done right, but is it really?
Again, these concepts aren't exactly new to me, but it's the first time in a while that I've taken a lot of things to heart this year and am finally applying the things I should have years ago. I hope anyone else out there that needs that extra push will get the tiniest little spark they need to restart that fire inside them that we all lose every now and then.

Til next time! xx

Back from the dead.. Tony Moly 2016

Hello happy spring everyone?? I've been on hiatus (as usual) bc I get caught up in rl and don't update as much as I'd like.. A few things have changed. 1 major one being my boyfriend and I have a puppy now (: She will be her own post entirely but I'm super excited to share our journey. You can see her grow rapidly too @osathechowski! 2nd is I finally have Yoko back! (my canaan rebel t5) and I will finally be taking quality photos again :> With the exception of this post, which were photos taken from my iPhone lol.

I also went to Disneyland recently, and if you know me you know how weird that is.. but ┐( `∀´ )┌ am i rite. But I'd like to get the New Year started off on the right foot with a good ole' beauty post! I recently purchased the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette and tbh I wasn't all that impressed by it at first. It took me a few times to have it grow on me. I'll do an unboxing and swatch in a later post when I have my camera n.n I guess something else that has changed is my skin routine.. As seen below is Tony Moly's Egg Pore thing and it was originally just an impulse buy due to cute packaging and poor self control, but it turns out I really like it lol. It has a lot more product than I expect and is a super spongy-like face mask that you put on your pore areas (nose, apples of cheeks and forehead for me.) And it's super tightening, once you wash it all off with warm water I HIGHLY recommend you follow up with some of the argon serum I've listed below. YOUR FACE WILL FEEL INSANELY AMAZING IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY. I can't stress how great this combo is.
