Baby Step 1

Okay, so I signed up for Financial Peace University. For those of you who don’t know what it is, have you heard of Dave Ramsey? If so, that might help you out. If not, well, I’m fairly new in knowing about him and FPU.
But the church I attend is offering a 9 week session on managing/budgeting money. If you don’t know anything about Dave Ramsey, I actually had no clue until last Saturday when finding some YouTube videos of his talks.
Dave Ramsey talks a lot about how to get out of debt and be at financial peace. There are 7 steps that he calls baby steps. The first baby step is to save $1,000 in emergency fund as quickly as possible.
When hearing this, I’m like, “How in the world can I save that much quickly?” Quickly as in a month or two. I thought of the bags I have. I have two bags that I received free from Macys purchasing Taylor Swift’s perfumes. I also received a bag free from them purchasing a Selena Gomez’s perfume. I have a fossile bag that looks nice still and I barely use it. I also have bags I purchased from Walmart. I have more bags than I need. So that’s my first thing I could sell.
Speaking of perfumes, can you sell used to barely used perfumes? I have Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted that I cannot use for my poor nose does not tolerate the scent anymore. I also have a Red Door from Elizabeth Arden, Selena Gomez’s perfume, and a few Bath and Body Works ones. Would those be something I could sell? Or would it be like makeup, once used no one would really want to use it or even buy it.

Below shows two bags I could sell. What do you think? How much would they sell for? The Lipstick shape bag is Selena Gomez’s and the other is one of Taylor Swift’s.

Prompt: Complicated+MTS: His Last Days

Prompt: Complicated

MTS- My Trending Storieshttps://mytrendingstories.com/profile/lisa-maria/

Webster’s Dictionary defines complicated as “difficult to analyze, understand, or explain.” Life is complicated. When you’re a little kid though, life wasn’t all that complicated. All the worries and stress are at a distance as you roll down a hill laughing, run with the wind, soar like you’re flying through the sky, etc. As you grow older, reality hits you. You see more and more things clearly. You watch the ones you love suffer in pain and lose them after the storm. You question everything. You question God. Why does He take away the ones you love? So many questions lead to answers that leave more questions, which are best left unanswered. Life’s complicated. We stray from the path we used to follow- a path of hopes of tomorrow- a path of love- only to find ourselves lost in anguish and destruction. Some can turn back, others are lost for good.

My mind wanders memories of my Dad who passed away last March. Within those memories, I remember the past two years my Dad used to say he wanted to spend his last days in the forest. I wonder why for I couldn’t fathom anyone living in a forest, especially on their last days. Then I see pictures of forest, hear sounds of nature’s songs and realize maybe that’s why. The forest can be many things- adventurous, dangerous, dark, scary, etc. Among the many descriptions, the forest can also be calming and peaceful.

During my Dad’s last days, I wonder if he did visit a forest. When he had moments of sleep, did he dream of walking with God through the trails? Did he sit beside a tree and hear the birds sing? Did he feel lonely? Did he feel safe?

On his last days, I remember turning on the television. He said I could flip through the channels and so I did. Channel after channel I surfed until I found some images of flowers and nature’s beauty pictured on the screen. Dad saw it and he smiled when I told him he used to say he wanted to spend his last days in the forest. I didn’t know it was really his last days. But I’m glad it made him smile to see those.

Trying to clean my room, as always I became distracted. Throwing away papers, I found a notebook. Flipping through pages, I saw a poem, which reminded me of my Dad. I know he was the reason why I sat down and found an image of a forest. I know he was the reason behind this poem. I don’t remember writing it. I don’t remember which image I looked at while writing it. But something about the forest and Dad saying he wanted to spend his last days there moved me. Something about it made me get lost in that picture enough to write this poem. According to the date and time, I wrote this poem at midnight on January 14, 2016. You would think I would remember considering it was written this year. But I don’t. The poem itself is written in another post; however, I will add it onto this one as well.

Dear God,
oh, how I wish,
I wish to be lost in a forest.
The many shades of green
and sounds of water streams.
Birds chirp a tune,
at night, campfires fume,
a peaceful walk through its trails,
calming my awakened stress.
Forest, God bless.
Sending serenity
with an owls hoot,
night time crickets,
a morning sun
to awaken the hearts.
How do I fall out of love
with a sight like that?
A melody sung
while adventures begun.
What journeys do these high trees bring?
Where does the wind blow me?
What do the animals ring?
Is there a new beginning
somewhere deep in a forest?

*peace&God Bless*

Fund Me

Hello everyone. WAIT! Before you click the “x” button thinking this is just a blog asking for money, DON’T. I’m not asking You for money. I’m asking myself 🙂 Some of your heads are probably circuiting thinking, “Oh, how dumb” (“x”). Go ahead if you like. But I find it rather interesting and might help me.

Why would creating a fund for myself help me? The only money I’ll be making is whatever comes my paycheck (and if lucky, other options). What good does it do, then? Well, I was researching on Google ways to stop shopping. You see, I have a problem- more specifically, a spending problem. Shopping! If shopping could have a lawsuit, I bet it would be sued for stealing money. Okay, I’ll stop.

Yes, many of us have this problem. I’m not the only one. Knowing that makes me a little better. But knowing others can overcome this problem and save up while I’m drowning myself, still, in money problems makes me irritated. Not with you. Definitely not with you. This is not your fault, but my own. I’m irritated, annoyed with myself. Why can’t I just say, “No”? JUST SAY “NO”! Really? How so easy….

But no, it’s not so easy. Shopping you are so cruel… maybe it’s money that’s so cruel? Material objects only suffice for couple seconds, minutes, hours, etc., so why do I go for it more, especially during my stressful moments.

I’ve read online making goals helps the increase spending. Budgeting supposedly does, too. I fail at both. I know what you’re thinking, “Sucks to be you”, right? That or, “You’re not trying hard enough”. “Are you sure you did it right?” Any of these ringing in your mind? It’s okay. Be honest. I’ll live.

So what is this funding? Well, I scanned the website a little for some inspiration on saving money and stop spending habits. I found this, but I didn’t read any further. I let my mind wander on it.

Here’s my question to myself and you: What is it you want most? What are your goals? What do you want to achieve?
In my journal I wrote some, like maybe three or four very important goals- to publish a book, travel, buy a new car, pay off credit card, and start an Etsy shop (selling crocheted baby blankets). I know that’s more than three or four. You can come with many more if you want. What matters most is the list you come up with should mean something to you. Should spark an interest and motivate you, get you thinking, “Wow, all this does need money. I really do need to start saving.”

That’s my problem, you see. I am not motivated in saving. Saving for what? I had no goals in mind. Some of these goals, I’ll admit, were just added because sometime in the future I’ll eventually have to save for it. For instance, buy a new car. I’m satisfied with my car I have. A blue 2006 Toyota Corolla that’s been with me since I was 17.5. My Dad and the Driving teacher both taught me driving in it. I wasn’t comfortable with the Driver’s car, so he allowed me to use the one my parents purchased. It’s been with me through minor and major car crashes. It’s still running. I’m satisfied. But I should still think of a new car because this car will eventually lose its life or be a total loss someday. If my car died today, completely died today, would I be ready? No. What about tomorrow? Absolutely no. I wouldn’t be ready at all this year. That’s why it’s so important to start saving now. I think my head is in agreement. Hopefully.

Okay, so you made your list. It’s a list made for you. The fact is, I needed to change my mindset. I believe this is the way. Most website I find tells about budgeting. Yes, budgeting is great. I’ve tried it. Envelope budgeting was something interesting. But even that failed. Writing on paper like my Dad constantly told me I needed to do- yup, you guessed it! FAILED. I’m a total complete failure. But what if there’s something more I needed?

If you would tell me I need to save money I’d nod my head and say okay. But would I really believe it? You’d tell me it’s for my future. Okay, hold up. Stop right there! That’s the biggest problem. Automatically, my head will ask, “What future?” Get it? I don’t see a future for me. Yes, I am here in this world. Therefore, I should see a future. But I don’t. I’m just passing by with the time ticking my life away. I don’t know what I want to be. My career sucks considering I have a Bachelors degree already and am working for $8.25/hour. My friends and family keep talking about how I should be making more money and how I should go back to school for another better degree. I don’t have any desire in going back to college unless I’m set on a degree because right now, I don’t even know who me is. My interest constantly changes. That’s the problem I had even attending an expensive private college. I suck. Like I said a complete failure.

It’s only this year I have found a desire in bringing out my passion. Letting it flow and see where it goes. Will it drown in an ocean? Will it get swallowed by a whale? Or will it swim to shore? Who knows! That’s life. One thing I know is I love hands-on activities. I love creating things. My Dad used to watch me crocheting. He’d be amazed at my focus level when creating a crochet project. I’ll admit, not all crochet projects keep my focus. There are only a few designs that I will stay focused on. And coming from a girl who lacks focus or has trouble keeping it, that’s something to think about. So that’s one thing that makes me. What else?

Another that makes me me is writing. Since I was little writing has been my best friend. I haven’t been nice to my friend. I’ve taken it for granted. Writing. God’s greatest gift he could give me. I’m grateful for this gift. However, sometimes it’s just so hard to find the words or phrases. So, I give up. That or I’m too lazy to sit down and take the time to write. Back in college, I had some paper assignments that I couldn’t do. Why? Because a flood of poetic words spun around my mind. I was going crazy! I told my Dad this on the phone. He told me to spend one hour. One hour. That’s all Jesus asked His disciples when they fell asleep as he prayed, “Will you not spend one hour with me?” Right? If this is wrong one, please let me know. This is from my memory, so I could have the stories mixed up. Either way, he did ask that question. And that’s something writing was asking me. Writing for me is spending time with God. Therefore, if writing is asking, “Will you not spend an hour with me?” Maybe God was too. Spending that one hour hour or even just couple minutes helped me. All those words emptied my mind so that I could spare some time on other school-related homework. Therefore, writing is definitely something a part of me that I could not and should not ever give up. No matter how difficult writing can get. I need to break down the walls and face whatever obstacles there may be.

Etsy is another, but like my mom says, “I have all the ideas, but I don’t follow through.” In my head, I’m thinking of what kind of themed-blankets I can make. My face brightens as all the ideas form. Then glooms when I wonder how much yarn it would take. Why the gloomy face? Money. It’s all because of money. You’re probably thinking, “Yup, it’s always the money.” This world revolves around money. If I were to make baby blankets, I’d need money. But I spent so much and have bills so high to pay off, I dug a deep hole that buried all my dreams in. There’s no way to dig them out until I pay the past, learn and move on without setting the same trap. I’ve done the same thing before. I set a trap I can’t get out of.

Okay, so those are my goals in detailed form. So, what’s next. Well, obviously I need the money. With a paycheck of $8.50/hour, work hours 7.5+/-, bills that are high to pay off, and past credit cards and paypal to pay off, how can I expect to save anything? I could easily ask for a loan. But who would want to help pay for a mistake that is not theirs? Who would want to help pay off a stupid mistake? No one. I have to work with the budget I have. I have to set my mind in not spending. Find other ways to get my mind off that bad habit. After all, just say “NO” is not enough for everyone. I have to find reasons why and remind myself of what makes me me and follow through on those passions and goals. That’s what I need to do. I can’t just make a list of spending and see where I can cut back. I can’t just use the envelope technique. I need more! I need reasons. I need to believe in those reasons. I need something to motivate me and in the long run keep my motivation.

Yes, you may still have to budget just to find how much money you have left when all your bills and things are paid. That way you have a sense of how much leftover you have. That leftover, rather than saving it in your account, tell yourself, “These are my goals. This is what I need to save up for. I need this to better myself, make me happy. This is a part of who I am.” Find any reasons. Talk through until you believe it and remain focused on it. If you find yourself wanting to spend more, do the process at that time. Focus your mind on your intentions that make you you. You may love makeup. I shop for makeup. But ask yourself do you have makeup? List what makeups you have. If your mind is saying, “But I don’t have this one…” (pouts). Forget the pout. Look beyond it! Don’t be fooled by the pout!! Ask yourself, “What makes this one product currently wanting so unique?” Wait 24 hours before buying it. Are you still thinking of it? Well is it a shade you may already have? Maybe you can buy it later. Remember, if it’s store purchase, you would have to drive there. Are you willing to waste gas and your time driving? If it’s online, don’t press that button until you give it some time and thought!

Whatever amount that’s leftover from your paychecks, put it away in a savings account. Don’t touch that savings account! I had that problem, too. It’s not for you. You set up a fund. A savings fund. That fund is for your goals, your passions. But it’s not for you. Are you confused? Great! See, if that money is for you, then you can do whatever you want with it. But if you tell yourself it’s not for you, it’s for a purpose, then maybe, just maybe you wouldn’t dare touch it. It’s going to the greater good- the greater YOU! Not you, but the greater you that’s deep inside of you that’s dying to come out. The real you. Not the you that fails at spending. That you has dreams. It has goals. It has a sense of reality. That you doesn’t throw away money. That’s the you that’s trying to come out. And you are creating an account for that you.

I just created my goals today. I am hoping I can follow through on this. I need to start thinking more clearly under a cloudy mind. One day my mom won’t be here to help support me when my money flies away among a flock of birds. My Dad used to tell me he won’t always be around to help me. Therefore, I need to start saving money. It didn’t help those times. But losing him was a bit of an eye opener. What was the greatest eye opener is that I have a dream I want to play out. I want to publish a book with a company and have no money at all saved for it. I don’t know how much I’d have to pay, but still, with all my past debts, would I be able to even afford publishing the book? That’s the biggest eye opener for me. If you’re also failing at saving and budgeting, if you think you are a complete failure, maybe you’re not. Maybe you’re failing goes more deeper. Maybe you need more than just separating money into envelopes and/or writing words and numbers on paper. After all, you have to have a desire that sparks a need for change in you; a spark to reignite the flame inside you to do better. Right?

That’s all I have for now. I am enjoying my few hours of free time before going to work. My current job during the summer, lessens the hours due to the amount of children. I no longer come in from 9:00am-6:00pm, but either 11am-6pm or 1pm-6pm. It’s nice because I’ve been wanting a break from work. This way I’ll have some spare moments during the weekday and still get paid for some hours working. There are pros and cons to it. But really what doesn’t? Hope you all are enjoying your day and if not, it’s almost the weekend!

By the way, my first book I wrote is available on Kindle for preorder. It is in loving memory of my Dad who passed away due to a little of pneumonia, kidney failure, and heart giving up. He overcame so much in his 82 years of living. This year he would have been 83 in July. In celebrating his birthday, I wanted to publish the book on July 8th. This story is a story he used to tell me when I was sick and weak asking him for one before I fell asleep on the main floor couch because I didn’t want to climb upstairs to my room. My original story is less than or equal to 1000 words, but because it’s a kindle ebook, I have expanded it to 3000 words. Not all of this was his exact words. From the story he told, I took some ideas I remembered and ran with it. I am planning one day publishing a printed book; however, currently, it is on preorder on Amazon’s Kindle version. Whatever I sell from this will go in my Savings fund for any and all my future dreams and goals.

I am also planning on working with Dorrance Publishing company in publishing another children’s book. I am currently waiting on illustrations and the pricing. Thank you for your time stopping by and reading my post.

Prompt/Poem: His Last Days

Summer skies, yet I’m in gloom.

Remembering the day that felt like doom.

I should be happy,

That was his only wish.

But all I can remember

And all I can think of is this:

3:39am last breath he took.

I watched him lay there lifeless.

Memories flooded; outside no light.

Sounds of birds chirping nonstop.

Cries throughout the room

Knowing his days of fighting were at end.

No longer in pain.

No longer to suffer.

No more breathing tubes.

No more daily oxygen machine.

No more chest pains or heart attacks.

Just still pictures and vague memories.

His voice is fading.

I cannot remember how it sounded.

Only that it was strong.

With every words he said,

Deep breath he’d take.

Every step, every climb,

More and more weaker,

He’d slow down to take another breath.

In our midst his life deteriorated.

But he wouldn’t let us see.

When he smiled no teeth did show.

Only six he had left.

Through his weakened state,

He still helped his family.

Didn’t have to,

He did anyway.

He helped me clean and organize my room,

Even though in a second I’d mess it up again.

Loved me with all my flaws.

Wanted only the best a father could wish.

Now he’s gone and I still exist.

With memories that are fading-

I’m afraid they’ll be gone in a flash.

How can I save them

Before they disappear?

Once they are gone I doubt they’ll appear.

Philosophy: Take a Deep Breath!

What does philosophy mean?
Google search defined philosophy as “the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline.”
On Philosophy, they define philosophy as the wellbeing beauty brand that inspires women to look, live, and feel their best. Philosophy enhances the health and beauty of the skin through multi-tasking skin care and feel-good scents. They also provide uplifting words that nourish the spirit and inspire beautiful skin as well as beautiful days. Women everywhere can feel confident in their unique inner and outer beauty.love_header

Philosophy offers perfumes, bath and body, skincare, and makeup. A lot of us are familiar with their perfumes- Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, and Loveswept. Each perfume also has a bath and body multi-tasker that not only cleans your body, but also is designed to be used as a shampoo for hair.
At Macys couple months ago, I found the Take a Deep Breath skincare line. It is comprised of a moisturizer and an eye cream. It’s not a huge skincare line; instead, it’s a quick and simple two step one. In our busy lives who would want a complicated one anyways? I liked this when I was using it that I looked on their Philosophy site for more products in that line. That was when I found they also had a few makeup, which they call “color”. This makeup line consist of a foundation, a bronzer, and a blush. That’s it. So simple.

You see life more clearly when you take a moment to breathe.

You’ve seen it on all the philosophy products sold by Philosophy. They all have a quote to inspire and uplift women. Every perfume has a name and every name as a quote to define that name. This Take a Deep Breath line is no different. Because your body breathes naturally, when you are stressed or have a busy day ahead, you tend to forget to take a breath of fresh air. Breath in. Breathe out. This line is reminding us that if we take a deep breath we see life in a different way- clearly as they say. Not only do you need to breathe, but your skin does as well. That is why Philosophy created Take a Deep Breath line with its latest cushion technology with mesh filter for antibacterial purpose.

Skincare
TADB-Moisturizer-Face-Duo-DO-00000000_S7

This  Oil-free oxygenating gel cream moisturizer (2oz) selling for $40, is designed to restore and refresh dull, dry complexion due to the busy life that ages skin. With the clean-air technology, skin receives oxygen and is able to breathe freely.
I did like the gel feeling on my face when I had tried it. My skin felt breathable, but at times sticky after applying. I think the stickiness might have been caused by putting excess amount on my skin. The next day when I applied less amount it didn’t have the sticky feeling. The sales rep at Macys cosmetics did say other customers complained about the stickiness too.
They now have this gel cream in a smaller size (0.5oz) selling for $14. Along with this gel cream, you can purchase on Philosophy a 0.5oz eye gel cream as well for $42. They do also have a twofer. You can buy both the face and eye oxygenating gel cream in full size (an $82 value) for $69.
Another twofer: you can purchase an 8oz Purity cleanser and a 0.5oz. This is $36 worth of products for $24, saving PHL_SKNCR_PMS_TADB_PRDCTwCRTN_DO_S7you $12, minus the taxes. I have tried the Purity cleanser and really liked it. It is a light cleanser. I have also tried the Purity mask. These are very simple to use. Purity is a 3-in-1 cleanser designed to cleanse, tone, and hydrate face all in one step. This cleanser also does well in removing makeup, especially the eye area.
I have not tried the eye gel cream, for a lot of products I put on my eye area tend to dry them. When applying the gel cream for the face around my eye area I didn’t have any dryness. Therefore, I may stick with just using the face one for my eyes or buy the eye one as well if I use it again.
I know, face moisturizer don’t go near your eyes… it can irritate your eyes. But even eye moisturizers can irritate your eyes. So what’s the difference? Other than one is made for the eyes and is quite expensive; while the other is made for the face and is a bit less expensive. By the way, can someone explain why eye treatments have to be more expensive than other treatments for face and/or body????

Color

TADB-Bronzer-1oz-ProdWBox-70531301_S7Another product from this collection that I have not tried is their (1oz) Sheer Liquid Sunshine with clean-air technology selling for $35. This is a lightweight illuminator that leaves skin looking naturally radiant. You can either use it on certain areas where the sunlight hits your face for a sun-kissed look or use it all over for a warmed, and lit from within effect. This is a one shade only illuminator. There are no other shades for this product.

The last two products in this collection I have tried and are my favorite. These are the foundation and cheek products. I will begin with the TADB-Foundation-Shade3-00000000_S7foundation. This foundation is a cushion foundation with clean-air technology and SPF 20. This comes in five shades that are numbered 4-10 selling for $40.
On Philosophy they list only shades 4-8. You can also find this product on Ulta, which sells all shades. On Philosophy, each shade has a name along with the number- 4-warm vanilla, 5-neutral sand, 6-golden tan, 7-milky latte, and 8-warm sienna. Ulta only list the numbers in the description.
This foundation evens and smoothes texture with a breathable, weightless finish. This foundation has a mesh filter and along with their innovative cushion delivery system, the mesh filter provides a fine layer of perfecting color; instantly locking in hydration; blending and building beautifully for sheer to full coverage.
I purchased this foundation in the shade 8 (warm sienna). I find it a well blending foundation and like the mesh filter. It is easy to use, buildable, and not too much product comes on the sponge (included in each foundation compact) all at once. This sponge is washable. It is so easy to use you can even apply without a mirror. It does feel weightless. You can build this up depending on how you press the applicator against your face. If lightly pressed, you get a sheer coverage. If medium pressed, you will see a medium to full coverage.

TADB-Blush-Shade2-v3-00000000_S7And finally, the cushion color for cheeks (which can also be applied on lips as well). This is sold for $30 and comes in four different shades. Each shade, like the foundation is numbered; however, on Philosophy they each have a shade name as well: 4.5-bright pink, 5.5-coral, 6.5-rosy bronze, and 7.5-plum. This product weighs 0.12oz/3.5g each.
I like this blush a lot. I purchased the 7.5-plum one. I can control the amount of pigmentation I place on my cheeks. Therefore giving my cheeks either a nice sheer blush to a more richer and intense effect. This does last. I have no problems using this throughout the day. I applied this on in the morning. It is now 7:02pm and I have not once touched it up. Also, you can apply this blush onto your lips for a nice sheer to rich lip color.

What’s your fave?
What do you all think of this line? Do you own any products from Philosophy? If so, which is your fave. Have you tried Take a Deep Breath? Do you think Take a Deep Breath line helps your skin to breathe?

Philosophy had done some studies on their Take a Deep Breath gel cream moisturizer. From that studies, out of 45 women ages 20-35 years old who used the moisturizer twice daily for eight weeks, 85% felt skin could breathe freely and resist signs of a busy lifestyle.

The next time you wake up in the morning don’t forget that not only do you need to breathe, but your skin needs to breathe as well.

*peace&God Bless*
