I’m back!

Oh my gosh! I feel like I have been gone forever. Every day I think to myself, how I need to post something on my blog and something comes up. Let me tell you guys what I have been up to this month.

First of all, does anyone else feel like the month of March has lasted too long? I feel as if we have been in this month for too long. So this past weekend, I realized that I had not signed up for the deadline of financial aid through my university. I unfortunately will not be able to start my new class until April 19!!

BUMMER… NO SCHOOL FOR ALMOST AN ENTIRE MONTH!!

So anyways, I figured this would be a perfect time where I can focus and write a little more on my blog. I am literally running out of things to do when I get home because I have not had this much free time in about 2 years!

This month, I decided to sign up for Birchbox. I finally got the box today and was like….

I mean, the sample sizes were EXTREMELY small. I guess I am more used to the Ipsy sample size but I will keep the monthly membership for a little while longer. If I am still not satisfied with the products, I will just cancel it. I have also been doing a lot of shopping because of my spring break trip to… drum roll please*

International Women’s Day

How was everyone’s day today. I heard it was international women’s day today and thought it would be a great topic to blog about today. I have not really had time to write any blogs lately with recent projects at school and working a full time job. It can become a little overwhelming at times, especially since I am also a mother to a 9 year old and also have a boyfriend. With all that said and done, honestly do not think I would have it any other way. I think it is great that we have a day to officially celebrate all the women around the world. It was a day that was created to promote the achievements of women from  all around the world. I want to talk about something in specific in this post that was recently in the media. I am sure we are all aware of who Kim Kardashian is and what she is most known for. Recently there has been an uproar with a nude selfie that was posted on her social media websites. Now although this particular selfie was not completely nude since she blocked certain parts of her body with black strips, I found the image to be quite absurd. I don’t usually care what celebrities post because I believe to each their own. I do understand that Kim Kardashian has built a brand, an image and her source of income is this beauty and body that she has portrayed to her fans as positive body image. What bothers me so much when I see celebrities doing this is when I see articles written about this behavior being represented as positive body image. I personally do not think that flaunting your body by showing every single angle and body part is promoting positive behaviors for women to think positively about their bodies. What ever happened to having respect for yourself as a woman? What ever happened for having some form of dignity towards yourself as a woman? I am not a very religious person and tend to view myself as a very liberal woman but when I see women doing this for business purposes (because at the end of the day lets all be very clear, Kim Kardashian has made her money by selling her body image) and then promoting it as building positive body image it just disappoints me really. I hope to have a daughter one day and cannot imagine how I would explain to her if she were to have read the article I read today stating that posting a nude image of yourself to the world promotes positive body image. I think that there are plenty of women in this world today that have done great for women advancement and have paved the path for many future women generations to come. So that was my rant for today. I hope all you ladies had a great day today and again Happy:
