 On the first weekend of the new year, I went to the salon school at the local mall to get a relaxer touch which has been a Mizani Butter Blend Relaxer for my new hair growth/old processed hair!

After washing out the relaxer and deep conditioning, I am taken to the stylist bar which she uses various Loreal Professional and Mizani Hair products to protect, style and condition my relaxed hair!!

I have learned that with the new version of  Internet Explorer is now called and Edge plus went through a small tutorial about Windows 10!! I have done the Access Tutorial but I needed to focus more Excel and spreadsheet formulas!! And I have been practicing my typing speed and practicing my skills in Word and PowerPoint, which is on demand for most entry level professionals to know and for personal reasons, too!!

#LifewithNathan No ordinary #SundayMorning and Church routine


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

As a mom, there is no perfect way to get ready and get your child(ren) to church!! Throw in several curves balls into your Sunday morning routine and let's just say it going to be an interesting Sunday morning at church!!  I am sharing how I get prepared for Sunday morning starting with No. 1 Prepare your Heart for the Lord...yup, it stars with your heart attitude towards God and his son Jesus!! And the night before, have your church bag(s) prepped and ready which helps against the last minutes to "oh no" moments!! Read more below!

If you are new to my blog, let me start by saying we are a special needs family! Every Sunday, my son who lives with Autism attends a special needs Sunday school classes with other similar children!! And before he attends class, my son go to the "women's restroom" where we go through the bathroom routine and then post for a picture afterwards!!

In his Sunday school classes, he learns Bible stories on a level that he can understand and do several activities including his artwork and homework!! In our family, we encourage in doing well in school and Sunday school, always do a "Good Job", and be a "Good Helper"! We are so blessed by having special people and this special class for my son and children to be part of the community including at Church!

After Sunday morning services and Sunday school, we go home and have lunch together and later do fun family things like football, arts and crafts, movies, and Legos!! I will be honest ...not every Sunday morning is perfect, like any other family we have "Bad Days" but thank the Lord and live for the "Good Days" and always count are blessings!

Until next time...

For the Love of #PinkMakeup Featuring #Benefit, #Stila, #OPI #Sephora and More


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

I love the color pink which is reflected in my lifestyle including fashion and beauty all year round!! For instance, I am doing nude/pink makeup for that barely makeup look during the day but I feeling in the mood for something "pink"!! For those who are passionate about this color or wonder how people like me love pink and in their beauty/fashion, read more below! :)

Along with wearing pink makeup on my face, I love, LOVE wearing pink on my nails! Above pictures shows my favorite if not signature "Princesses Rule" pink nail polish along with two Hello Kitty nail polishes in "Starry-eyed for Dear Daniel" which is sparkly deep pink and "Let's Be Friends" which is a pale pink shade! I design my nail art for both my mani and my pedi which are both awesome after I finished letting them dry!! :)

I love face masks and do tend to purchase masks that come in pink packages including this one from Sephora Lotus mask!! This mask is very hydrating on my facial skin and used the leftover "juice" in the package on my elbows, knees, and feet which tend to be extra dry during the winter season!

I am currently trying to use up my current makeup samples before buying anything new and these products I got through my monthly Birchboxes!! I love my nude/pink makeup look along with wearing my old grey sweater which fit my mood for the day!! I will always chose pink makeup and fashion because it fits my personal style every time!!

Until next time...
