Let's Catch Up! | VIDEOS

Hello Beauties! So I know I haven't posted in awhile and I miss posting on here. But life, you know? Anyways since the last time I was on here I have uploaded a couple of videos so I thought I would just put them all on one post so that you can see them all on one and not have to click to different posts. So lets go!

The first is a "tennis vlog". I played tennis with my friend, Marlon and it was a lot of fun. I think we just talked most of the time but it was super fun anyways:

So the second one is just a little day vlog where I took you guys to school and told you all about my test problem and what not! So here is that one:

And the most recent one is this tutorial(don't like using that word) on how I do my winged liner. I hope that you find it helpful and that you just like the video overall.


And that is it! There will be a new video(or two) within the next couple of days so be on the look out for that!!

Going out/Alter Ego Look Video

I haven't uploaded a video in ages, and this time I really have no excuse. I just upload, stop, and upload again and it shouldn't be like that. Anyways, the video that I recently uploaded is a little crazy/fun. I did my alter ego/going out look. My friends and I say that when I go out I have this crazy alter ego named Mariah. It is really just a joke, but I wanted to make a video out of it. So here is what "Mariah" would look like is she really did exist :)

Anxiety & Depression

I feel like now a days, its quite common to have either anxiety or depression, or both. Dealing with it is no easy task especially for me. Recently it hasn't just been my crazy bad anxiety, but also depression. A lot of people as "What are you depressed about?", but do we really need a reason? How do you tell people how you feel when you don't really know how to explain it or not really sure how it is that you feel. For me it's just a bunch of little things. Overthinking things is one of the biggest issues for me. My brain likes to take everything and over analyze even the littlest of things. It's really annoying, but I can't seem to help it.  

The one I struggle with the most would have to be anxiety. My anxiety takes over and controlling it is difficult. Though I am learning to control it, it takes time and so is finding the way to avoid having anxiety. To avoid anxiety, I like to do things that make me happy and keep me calm and surrounding myself with good people also helps. I try to avoid the situations that make me anxious, but if I can't I give myself a little talk to remind myself that everything will be okay. One of the biggest things is airplanes. Airplanes give me the worst anxiety ever. My heart starts pounding, my stomach hurts, and I just get really nervous especially if there is too much turbulence. The crazy thoughts start pouring in, and I just want to cry. But, over the past few months, I have been traveling a little bit more than I usually do, and I am starting to learn to control it. Reminding myself that everything will be okay, and that its normal that it moves. I don't why these crazy thoughts come into my head, but dealing with it is something that I know I have to work on. 

Depression is a whole different story. Because I tend to overthink things, it makes everything worse. 
I feel alone, sad and angry all at once. Even though I have my family, sometimes it feels as if I have no one to talk to and that is what makes me feel alone. To be honest, I don't have many friends, and the ones I do live far away. Its hard to not really have anyone to go hang out with and get away, and even though I like being alone sometimes, I do miss going out and spending time with my friends. Blogging, designing, and making videos is my one true remedy. I can just forget about everything "bad" and loose myself in what I love to do the most. 

My advise to anyone feeling like this, try finding things that make you happy. Do more of what you love. If someone or something is making you feel anxious or depressed, remove yourself from that. You don't need that feeling to exist in your life and yes it is hard- trust me I know it is, but doing it will only benefit you. I know that for me, I still have to work on it and I am, but it will take time. Don't let your depression or anxiety win. Beating it is the ultimate goal for me. I know that I will get through it, I just can't give up, and if you feel this way you can't give up either.

New, Healthier Me | Tips & Tricks

Hello Everyone.

So today I wanted to post about what I have been doing the past couple of weeks to stay healthy and fit. It has not been an easy journey. I can never say no to a cookie, cake or just anything sweet. But, I have told myself that if I want to feel better about myself and just feel good in my own skin that "no" was going to have to be in my vocabulary a bit more often when it came to bad foods. So I have kind of forced myself to say "yes" to working out more and "no" to unhealthy foods.

Here are the things that I have been doing to keep me motivated, eating healthy, and exercising more.

1. Counting My Calories
One of the things that has really helped me is keeping track of the calories that I consume a day. This might seem a bit weird, but it works and It is a good way to see how many calories you can have a day according to your height, weight and I think age too. To track my calories I use an app on my phone called "MyFitnessPal". This app helps me keep track of the foods I eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks. It also helps me keep track of how much water I drink and I can also enter the amount of exercise I have done. This app gives you a number of calories you can intake according to your body, and will keep track of it. I love this app. I use it everyday and I really see a difference with the way I eat now. It is one thing to go an work out and then to go eat really bad things and one to work out and concentrate on what you eat.

2. Exercise
Along with changing my eating habits, I have added exercise to my daily routine. This has been even tougher for me than eating healthy because I am just naturally a lazy person. I would rather lay in bed all day than get up and go work out. But this has dramatically changed within the past couple of weeks. I have been getting up earlier than I would and heading to the gym for about an hour. First, I run a mile, once I get off the treadmill I start doing my ab work outs, then arms, and finish off doing squats. I also got P90X which I can barely do, but I try to do them. I love feeling sore because then you know you are doing the work outs correctly and that I am actually working those muscles out.

3. Staying Motivated
When working out and eating healthy, staying motivated is not an easy task. For me, I liked going to the gym a couple of days at the beginning of the week and the loosing my motivation to go to the gym towards the middle of the week. I told myself in the mornings that I would go at night after work, but then I was just too tired to work out once I got home. Now, I force myself to go. It is really difficult to get up in the morning and go to the gym, but once I do I love the feeling of accomplishment once I get home. I feel like I did something good and I start my day off feeling great about myself. That's why even thought it is a constant battle to get up in the morning and go to the gym, I have to remind myself the great feeling afterwards. So if you are like me and finding it hard to get motivated to go to the gym, don't give into it. Force yourself to go, even if it is for a little while, trust me you will feel so good after you go.

So those are some of my tips on how to stay motivated and eating right. I hope that this helped out a bit. 

If you have any tips and tricks to go to the gym, staying motivated, or eating healthy, please let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear what you have to say.
