Places I Want to Visit During 2015

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling the urge to travel more this year. There are just so many beautiful and breath-taking places in the world for us to explore. So here I am, showing you what places I’d like to visit this year.


Somewhere off in the oceans, around South America (or Central America I believe? according to Google it’s part of North America??) is this little island country called Barbados. If you haven’t heard of it yet, chances are you’re missing out. Truth told, don’t know much at all about it (or anything really, nor what you’re suppose to do there), but the pictures below literally scream tropical, beachy, and luxurious getaway-like.

2015 Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift

One of the reasons why I love birthdays so much (particularly when its mine, which just happened a couple days ago) is because stores give out tons of free stuff. And I mean come on, who doesn’t love a free ice cream or free meal? Or in this case, a free set of lipsticks.

Sephora has their “Beauty Insider” program, which comes with many benefits and promotions, but I’m not going to lie, the main reason why I joined was for the birthday gift. As soon as I heard about the program and what this year’s gift was going to be, I immediately signed up.

Encouragement plays a huge role to success.

Words can inspire and motivate people in un-imaginable ways.

Today’s my birthday and I’m turning 13.

Today is a day to reflect on who I am and who I want to be.

And so, instead of creating “birthday wishes” or goals, I made a collage containing words of encouragement for inspiration, positivity , and motivation.

Take a moment to think about who you are right now. Is it who you want to be? Are you on the way or are you stuck? Or just not working towards that dream at all? I’m here reminding you all that you can do it and will make it there if you just try. Everyone says to “be yourself” but at this rough patch of your life, it’s hard and I know. So find out who you are instead. What makes you happy and what you love. Don’t ever give up. Dreams do come true, remember that.

From my heart to yours…
