Harry Potter Bedroom Line By Pottery Barn

Harry Potter Bedroom Line By Pottery Barn

I know I’ve talked about Harry Potter WAYYY too much on my site.

But, I just got back from my first trip to Harry Potter World in Orlando Florida and I am still SHOOOK. I didn’t do a lot of research before I went, so I was amazed at the way the park was laid out and the detail that was put into everything. More than anything though, I was amazed at how much it reignited my passion for the Harry Potter series.

Today, Pottery Barn Teen announced their new Harry Potter collection and in light of my recent trip I was dying to check it out.

Although these are kind of expensive, I might buy a few of my favorites because I’m an impulse buyer who can’t resist adorableness.

While you can click on over and check out the products for yourself on Pottery Barn (and I would suggest you do so), here are a few of my favorite pieces!

You can check out everything here.

Also, shout out to Bustle where I first heard of this!

Wet-n-Wild Halloween Makeup!

Wet-n-Wild Halloween Makeup!

I’m so ready for Halloween!

It’s my favorite time of the year for a variety of reasons, but one of the biggest ones is of course makeup.

If I’m being honest, I don’t really use a lot of Wet n Wild products.

Mainly because I spend way too much at Ulta when I’m “just browsing”.

So, with that being said, I don’t have a lot of experience with Wet n Wild.

However, I will be giving them a try this Halloween, because they are putting out 50 Halloween inspired products under $6 each.

I will say I have always appreciated Wet n Wild because they are one of the few drugstore brands that is mostly vegan and doesn’t test on animals.

Yup… that still happens and not many people talk about it. Crazy right?

Anywho, the line includes a ton of different things from glittery eye shadows and eyeliners, to matte liquid lipsticks and body stencils.

Obviously, you can find these in store… and I also had some luck finding some of the items below online.

Be Intentional | Accomplishing Your Dreams

Be Intentional | Accomplishing Your Dreams

I have a confession to make.

For the last several years I’ve struggled with being intentional.

You see, from high school up through my first year of college I was REALLY intentional.

I did something that is becoming very popular as of late known as “manifesting”.   Which is basically a fancy way of saying that I had a vision for my future and I didn’t allow myself any other alternatives. I did what I needed to do to get what I wanted.

But after accomplishing two years of college during high school, backpacking Europe during my gap year, going to the college of my dreams and becoming the top of my class…. I started feeling confused and I lost my sense of direction- my intentionality.

I ended up going from college to college switching majors… I lost a lot of friends who moved on while I stayed feeling stuck in one place or another… I didn’t know what my goal should be, what I wanted anymore.

To be honest, I always had thought that I would end up being a CEO, or MD, but while shadowing people and taking classes, I started realizing that the life I dreamed of outside of work was not attainable if I went down those paths.  I couldn’t get up and travel whenever I felt like it, I couldn’t skirt work to make time for family and friends…I couldn’t choose to live up in the woods on solar power eighteen hours from the nearest town (okay I don’t really want this.. but I hated NOT having the option).

I was really confused by this discovery because it had been my plan and it was what others expected of me.

After giving up my plans, I went through a several year stretch of not knowing what to do with my life.

Eventually, after dabbling online and starting a few successful blogs and niche websites (I started by selling worms lol), I found my voice on the internet and my determination and intention returned.

So, today I want to teach you what I learned about being intentional and why you should make it a priority for yourself.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE INTENTIONAL?

In essence, living an intentional life is all about living in a way that is meaningful to you.  Taking responsibility for yourself completely.  Checking each thought, each word, each action and making sure that they’re in-line with your desires for yourself.  Being intentional also requires that you understand that every thoughts, action, feeling, and attitude impacts our lives.

In a way being intentional is one of the easiest and hardest things you’ll ever do.  But, being intentional will allow you to work towards your goals, be happier, healthier, and find purpose for your life that you might be lacking.

BUT HOW DO I KNOW WHAT I WANT?

To be intentional, you really need to have a “game plan” for your life… it doesn’t have to be perfect, but the more you can visualize exactly what you want, the better! Some of you have very clear visions of what you want out of life. Great! Use that!  If you’re like me and you don’t have a super clear plan, then that is the first thing you need to do!

Also, note that it’s okay if this game plan changes.  We all change and grow and just know that if for some reason your plan changes, you haven’t failed-you’ve just realigned your future by knowing what you don’t want anymore.

So I’m not going to ask you to write goals, or write down exactly what you want… which are both great steps.  I truly believe that the only step you MUST do to be successful, is to figure out what you are really living for.

One way to do this is to image that you are at your funeral. 

I know it’s a little morbid.  If you read my blog much or follow me on Youtube, you know I’m a morbid person, so no surprises there!

Anyways, imagine that you’re at your ideal funeral- you’ve lived a good, full life and died and everyone is there.

First of all, who is there? 

Is it just your close family? Is the room packed with the community members?  Are your employees there?  Your bosses?

Second, ask yourself what they’re talking about, feeling and thinking about you.

Did you always make time for your kids?

Did you fight for the rights of others?

Were you extremely involved in your community?

What mark did you leave on the people in your world?

The mark you leave doesn’t need to be huge and earth shaking, but it needs to be important to you.

How did the people at your funeral talk about you?  What were the things they remembered you for?  What did you do with your life? The things you imagined they talked about, are probably the things that are important to you.

When I did this exercise I found that my interest in being a Youtuber and Blogger weren’t just short term hobbies, but things I wanted to be remembered for.  This was the first step in my intentionality to make this a full time gig (Yay for reaching goals!).

I also discovered that more than anything I wanted to be remembered as someone who was always willing to

help others achieve their goals

make every person I meet feel special

live simply

contribute to ending human trafficking…

So, what’s important to you?

What makes you light up?

Who is meaningful to you?

What do you want people to see in you?

HOW TO LIVE YOUR INTENTIONAL LIFE

Be Okay Being Imperfect.

No one is always perfect, embrace your imperfections.  If you’re like me and you get upset every time you don’t reach your idea of perfection, you’ll never be content.

Get Un-Stuck

Whenever you start to feel stuck remember that you are in control of you and you have unlimited choices. Start making a list of all your choices.  Some of those choices might be HORRIBLE and you might never EVER choose them, but knowing the options you have can help you make the best choice possible for you.

Clean Up Your Life

Start to identify parts of your life that don’t fit into your ideal world.  Do you have bad habits or attitudes that you can get rid of?  What current situations are holding you back from your purposeful life?

Live

One mistake I’m guilty of is assuming that life would start when I accomplished X, Y & Z.  Life is life though, it doesn’t start at some magic place. Do the things you want to do.  Enjoy the things you love and the people you love right now!

There are literally books about being intentional, so this isn’t an all-inclusive guide, but I hope it gets you started at least thinking about the importance of being intentional!

What has worked to keep you intentional?

The Lush Halloween Collection Has Been Announced!

The Lush Halloween Collection Has Been Announced!

AHHH!!!! You guys! It’s that time of the year again when Lush puts out their Halloween collection and I’m stoked!

 

Halloween is one of my favorite time of the year.

 

I just love the spooky… and the excuse to dress up….even as an adult.

 

I think I just had an epiphany about cosplay and I think I might have to try it.

 

Besides being a Halloween fan I’m also a huge Lush fan.

 

Specifically, I’m a big Lush bath bomb fan.  I even watch those weird awesome bath bomb trial videos.

 

Lush has so far only given sneak peaks of the Halloween collection on Instagram.

 

 

Because I’m obsessed though, I did some additional research (thanks bustle and allure) and came up with the (supposed) full list of all the items Lush will be putting out!

 

So, first off, which items am I looking forward to the most?!

Obviously the bath bombs

  1. Secret Arts Jelly Bomb ($8.95) — This bomb turns your bath water black AND has a name straight out of Harry Potter.
  2. Ectoplasm Jelly Bomb ($7.95) — The primary smell is grapefruit oil and while I obviously love it (it’s a bath bomb remember), I’m conflicted with the fact that it doesn’t smell like ectoplasm ( I hope you sense the sarcasm).
  3. Pumpkin Bath Bomb ($7.75) — #basicbitch.  So obviously I need it.
  4. Lord Of Misrule Bath Bomb ($7.75) — A favorite in the Lush world…. Personally it’s never been my first pick.
  5. Monster’s Ball Bath Bomb ($7.95) — He Is SOOOOO CUTE!

Then we get the soaps and bubble bars

  1. Lord Of Misrule Shower Gel (Varies) — Like the bath bomb…
  2. Magic Wand Soap ($6.95) — This soap is made with pomegranate and charcoal and sounds like Harry Potter so yes please.
  3. Hedgewitch Soap ($7.95) — Once again this one sounds Harry Potterish so I’m in.
  4. Bewitched Bubble Bar ($7.95) — This bubble bar is shaped like a cat. Super cute.
  5. Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar ($7.95) — Classic.
  6. Pink Pumpkin Bubble Bar ($7.95) — A pink alternative… I think their trying too hard here….

 

Lastly, we are accosted with the makeup stuffs.

To be honest, I’ve never tried any of their makeup items, so these don’t excite me much, but here they are.
  1. Black Rose Lip Tint ($9.95) — Looks black, but is actually dark rose.
  2. Black Rose Naked Lip Tint ($9.95) – ???????
  3. Black Rose Naked Lip Scrub ($6.95) –I’ve never tried a lip scrub, but maybe now I will.
  4. Goth Fairy Shimmer Bar ($7.95) — ……Goth Fairy sounds like a good Halloween costume.- I’m Assuming this is a highlighter.Just looking at all these products makes me feel stressed about draining my bank account (which I don’t recommend doing-only buy what you can afford).

I’m definitely going to be getting a few of the bath bombs… probably the black ones, and also a pumpkin bubble bar.

I’ll also definitely be lusting after everything else.

As far as I can tell the line will launch online on September 11th….

How do you guys feel about the Lush Halloween stuff?

Girl Boss Quotes | Time To Hustle Harder

Girl Boss Quotes | Time To Hustle Harder

I know that I sometimes need a “nudge” to be motivated and get stuff done.

Being the loving and generous person that I am, I decided to share that nudge with the rest of you-so, consider this a loving kick in the rear to get your day going.

  1. A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows she has none. – Marilyn Monroe

 

2. Do what makes your soul shine.

3. Sometimes you got to be a beauty and a beast. – Niki Minaj

4. Prove them wrong.

 

5. Today, be the badass you were too lazy to be yesterday. – Christina Carlyle

6. Hustle until your haters ask if you’re hiring.

7. Make it happen. Shock everyone.

8. Don’t stop until you’re proud.

9. What comes easy won’t last long, but what lasts long won’t come easy.

 

10. Focus on your goals. Don’t look anywhere but ahead.

11. Dream Big. Work Hard. And. Make. It. Happen.

12. I didn’t come this far, to only come this far.

13. Great things never come from staying in your comfort zone.

14. You only fail, when you stop trying.

15. Don’t Wait For Opportunity. Create  It.

I personally read quotes like this every morning straight off of Pinterest to get myself in the right mood for the day.

Soooo… you can print these out, or check them out on Pinterest or do whatever you need to do to keep yourself motivated to accomplish your dreams.
