I'm such a procrastinator when it comes to filing my taxes. Mostly because I'm a full-time employee with a side gig so at the end of the year I have a lot receipts to add up to enter all my deductions. I used to be HORRIBLE at keeping organized but along the years I've discovered ways to make the process a lot less painful, thanks to technology. If you're not a numbers person and are having a hard time like I did, here are a few tips to help you stay on track.
I never intended to jump on the "Monday hater" bandwagon. In fact, Mondays used to be my FAVORITE day of the week. I love where I live, I enjoy my commute to my office in Palm Desert where I spend all day doing what I do best – creating stuff! And marketing stuff - ha!
However, the last two seasons at work have been very intense and without proper rest time for almost 2 years, I'm feeling pretty burnt out. Waking up to an alarm clock on a Monday morning is not necessarily my favorite part of the work week. But you know what's my favorite part about Monday? When it's over, 'cause Friday, here I come!

It all started last Saturday morning. I woke up with a sore throat, but I thought it was just allergies combined with a minor cold I may have caught the night before at the Hombres G and Enanitos Verdes concert. But I was wrong.
I'm a freakin' rollercoaster of chills and sweat, hot and cold, sneezing and congestion to suddenly breathing and feeling a tad bit more normal for a short period of time. I feel better one moment, but then I get up to warm up so soup for myself aaaand then I'm exhausted.
It's already Thursday morning and I have a feeling that these germs love me so much, they're gonna stick around for Weekend 2. Yay me.
Stay healthy my friend. Achoo!

This one's for all you makeup lovers! Digital wallpaper for your phone and iPad, now available in the shop. If you see something on my Instagram feed that you like and would like to have it as digital wallpaper for your devices, send me a note! I'd be happy to set that up for you.
✍😃 Just a reminder to those who are new to LipSense. Please don’t layer it with regular lipstick and other gloss brands or you may end up with a patchy lip color that smears - ew! The LipSense color and gloss formulas were created to work with each other.
The smudge-proof color binds to your lips and the shea-based LipSense gloss permeates the color to moisturize your lips while locking-in the color.
Chapstick, lip balm and regular lipstick will breakdown the long-lasting formula of LipSense, and trust me, that’s no fun. ~ Now cheers (with coffee) to a very happy hump day! ☕️😁
If you have any questions, send me an email! I'm always happy to help.
