The Inescapable Hell That is Packing Pt. 1

As I get ready to take my first flight in August to travel to Chicago for the Younique Convention I will be all over the packing and traveling craziness!!!! I’m so excited, yet the packing, the rules, the flight is quite taunting and scary, BUT 8’m so looking forward to the adventure with my “Partner in Crime” Lanie!!!! Going to be an amazing 5 days!!

Best,
Carmen

Mallory Can't Even

Why hello there. You might be asking yourself, “Mallory, what’s with the scary blog title today?” Well viewer, I am currently packing for a five day trip to California and I am about to lose my mind (obligatory: up in here, up in here). I hate packing. It’s probably because I don’t travel often so I haven’t gotten good at it (yet!). No matter how many beauty guru YouTube videos, or Pinterest boards I frequent, I just can’t master the clutter free suitcase. That being said, I am going to turn this around and achieve my dream of being a well organized traveler once and for all (I have small dreams). It can’t be that hard, right? Today I figured I’d tackle the least daunting of all the tasks, the carry-on. Let’s see how this plays out.

She Is Happy

Something a little different for a Monday!  My daughter wrote a poem this year in her AP English class!  I felt it was beautiful and I thought it was something that I would like to share!!  Of course, I am biased, but I also love her title “She is Happy”!!  My daughter is a sophomore in high school, plays golf, loves her friends, is self confident,  and dreams to attend Stanford and become a doctor.  This girl has blessed me in so many ways!!  I have said MORE than once I don’t know what I did to deserve her, but I must’ve done something right!!

Happy Monday and Be Happy!

She is Happy
By Carah Frank

Her eyes display confidence.
With a rainbow of colors streaming from her eyes,
she is happy.

Her eyes are blue,
flowing like a river of joy.
She is happy.

Why is she so happy?
What has happened to make her love life so much?
What is the source of her joy?
Perhaps she met someone.
Or maybe she won something.
She is happy

Every time she blinks, more colors appear.
As if she were trying to blink away tears,
but those tears came out as beautiful
spurts of watercolored bliss.
She is happy.

What is she hiding?
Her colorful lips speak words of pain.
But we do not hear those words.
All we see are colors.
We assume that she is happy.

But she is breaking inside.
She runs away and hides.
We ask her what is wrong.
She does not respond
She just sheds more…
colors.

Here’s my YouTube video and the Younique products I use!!!  I have very sensitive skin and usually breakout with any changes!!  Being a former Mac user I was really worried about switching to another brand.  Luckily, I’ve had no reactions or breakouts!!  I love all the naturally-based products!!

  2. Illuminate Clear Facial Cleanser for oily skin or Illuminate Clean for normal/dry skin!!  I switch in between. $39
