New Rose Gold Morphe Brushes

A couple of weeks back I saw that Morphe had launched a new set of brushes and because I am an impulse buyer, I decided to get them. They were not at all expensive and its Morphe, so you know their products are going to be good. I did make a post about a little Morphe travel brush set that I had and how I really liked them, but it didn't come with a lot of brushes. It came with two face brushes and like three eye brushes. Unlike this one, which comes with all you need! In total, this set comes with 12 brushes and a travel case that is super cute!
The six eye brushes are great! They are super soft and get the product on the eye well and blend like a dream.
The face brushes are my fave. Not going to lie, they do shed a little bit (so did the small ones in the travel case I had), but its not something that really bothers me. Maybe I press too hard on them, but its not that big of a deal. They work really well. The one that I really like in this set is the highlighter brush ( looks like a bigger blending brush in the picture above). I have never really owned a highlighter brush and I really like this one. I use a Becca highlighter and the brush picks it up really nice and it doesn't really over do it.
But anyways, if you are looking for a cheap pair of brushes I really recommend these ones. I believe that they are currently sold out, but don't stop checking the Morphe website. They update their products quite freaquently. Also, there are really good discount codes available for a % off of your purchase. The one I use is MANNYMUA.

New Room Tour | Video

I haven't updated my room tour video in a while and my room looks nothing like it did in the previous room tour so I wanted to make a new one. I don't think my room has been that way in a really long time, but anyways here is an update on my room. I also threw in my bathroom since I also just redecorated it completly. Most of the things in this video are from Marshalls or Target! Anyways, I hope that you enjoy this video and make sure to subscribe to my channel. It would mean the world to me!

Hanging on to Fatih | with Spanish Translation

Sometimes this blog serves as just more than a space where I can share the things that make me happy, but also the sad. And boy have I been sad the last couple of months. Like really sad. But, of course I must power thru it and make the best out of the worst of situations. Of course, some days are easier than others and I even forget that I am sad, which is obviously what I want. Anyways, today has been one of those tough days where I am really upset. It might have to do with the fact that I am on my period(most likely that), but It has been going on for a little while. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post on what has been making me upset and all the "bleh" stuff, so if you haven't read that its just a few post below this one called Story & Advice Time. But since I wrote a lot of what I was really feeling and all that has been going on in that post, then this one will be different. 

When things don't seem to go the way that you want them to go, you loose hope. You really do, and I was one of those people that said that I would never do that, and I said that because I had never really been in a situation where I really thought I could. Until now. Which is normal in my opinion. For a while I did loose hope and faith and just gave up. Not really on what the last soppy post was all about but just things not really going the way I wanted them to with YouTube, family, work, and school. I was just not happy, and I feel as though I am not fully there yet and being "strong" for all this time is really starting to get to me. But after all the changes, ups and down, and bad moments, I know that the last thing I need to do is loose my hope and faith. 

A little while ago I had a dream that made me get up in the middle of the night crying. I had never experienced anything like it before and when I remember that dream, I feel just a bit better and I sort of click back into place. The dream was of me in a school that I was teaching at (I am not a teacher of any kind, but okay.) that right next to the ocean. It looked sort of like a pier in a way. I remember walking down the halls talking to parents as they took their children's home. I told them to be safe because there was a storm coming. In a moment the school was packed, and in the blink of an eye, it was empty and I was alone in the whole school. I walked outside and saw the ocean unsteady, and the waves crashing to the rocks close by. The sky was dark and the wind was strong. I was still alone, and when I blinked, there was a man standing just a couple of feet away from me. He stood there and was wearing all white, and had long hair and a beard. I knew who it was, but I was so scared. I couldn't move. And all he said was "Please Maria, don't be scared." But I was. He came closer, and the fear started to go away and all I could do was cry. He put his arm around me and said "It's ok. I am here." I looked up at him and said "I thought you abandoned me. I am so sad, and I thought you'd be there." He put his head down and reminded me, "I am alway here. I haven't abandoned you. You abandoned me." I cried even more and said that I was sorry. And then I woke up. I cried so much when I woke up because Jesus knew I had given up on him. And I felt ashamed that I had done so. But It was easy to give up and even harder to keep my faith, when it was all bad situations after bad situation. After that day, I pray every night and I know that my faith is the last thing that I need to give up on. God is with me in the good and the bad times. Even when I fear as though I have let him down, I know he is still there telling me to keep going. Yes, it might sound a bit cheesy, but it's the truth. 

You know what is really cool though? Having a priest friend. I think he has seen me at my lowest, and when I go walking in his office looking like I got hit by a train, he takes the time to give me the best advice. Even when I don't want to hear what he tells me, I know it is what I have to do. And It is hard, but he is right ( which is annoying most of the time :D ). It is so crazy the way my little job of a receptionist has really transformed my little heart. Of course, I am still learning a lot of things and I ask a lot of questions, but for the most part my heart is so full of Jesus that all of this anxiety and broken-heartness don't even have room to be there. 

I am tired. Really tired. Tired of things not going the way I want them too, but that is life. You live and you learn. When one door closes another one opens and I believe that so much. I am also such a bad friend that it is time to re-connect with the friends that I haven't talked to in a while. I also need time for myself. Do more of the things that make me happy. I want to do more YouTube, blog and design, and loose myself in my work for a little while. I know that it will be when I finally find myself and say "Here. This is what I want to do, who I want to be, and who I want to do it with". But for now, I need to take a step back and say chill. Things will happen when they are suppose to happen. Learn patience. Learn Love, really love. Learn happiness. Learn faith. 
And just be me. 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”—Philippians 4:6-7

A veces este blog sirve como algo más que un espacio donde puedo compartir las cosas que me hacen feliz. Aqui esta para también lo que me hace triste. Y deja me decirte que he estado bien triste estos últimos par de meses. Muy triste. Pero, por supuesto, debo de hacer lo mejor de las peores de situaciones. Algunos días son más fáciles que otros e incluso me olvido de que estoy triste, lo que obviamente debo de hacer. De todos modos, hoy ha sido uno de esos días difíciles donde estoy realmente molesta. Puede ser que estoy en mi período (lo más probable), pero ha estado pasando por un poco de tiempo. Un par de semanas atrás, escribí un post sobre lo que ha estado haciéndome triste y todas las cosas "bleh", así que si no lo a leído queda sólo unos pocos de puestos atras de este llamado "Story & Advice Time". Pero desde que escribí mucho de lo que realmente estaba sintiendo y todo lo que ha estado pasando en ese post, entonces este será diferente.

Cuando las cosas no parecen ir de la manera que quieres que vayan, pierdes la esperanza. Realmente lo hice, y fui una de esas personas que me dijo que nunca haría eso, y lo dije porque nunca había estado en una situación en la que realmente pensaba que podía hacerlo. Hasta ahora. Lo que es normal en mi opinión. Durante un tiempo perdí la esperanza y la fe y simplemente renuncié. Realmente no en lo que el último post, pero sólo las cosas no van realmente de la manera que yo quería. Como con YouTube, la familia, el trabajo y la escuela. Yo no estaba feliz, y me siento como si no estoy plenamente allí todavía y ser "fuerte" para todo este tiempo realmente está empezando a llegar a mí. Pero después de todos los cambios, subidas y bajadas, y malos momentos, sé que lo último que tengo que hacer es perder mi esperanza y mi fe.

Hace poco tuve un sueño que me hizo levantarme en medio de la noche llorando. Yo nunca había experimentado algo parecido antes y cuando recuerdo ese sueño, me siento un poco mejor y vuelvo a hacer "click" en lugar. El sueño era de mí en una escuela en la que estaba enseñando (no soy un maestro de ningún tipo, pero ok). Quedaba justo al lado del océano. Parecía un poco como un muelle. Recuerdo caminar por los pasillos hablando con los padres mientras se llevaban a sus hijos a sus casa. Les dije que estuvieran a salvo porque había una tormenta en camino. En un momento la escuela estaba llena, y en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, estaba vacía y yo estaba sola en toda la escuela. Caminé para fuera y vi el mar inestable, y las olas rompiendo a las rocas. El cielo estaba oscuro y el viento era fuerte. Todavía estaba sola, y cuando parpadeé, había un hombre parado a sólo un par de pies de distancia de mí. Él estaba allí y vestía todo de blanco, y tenía pelo largo y barba. Yo sabía quién era, y estaba asustada. No podía moverme. Y todo lo que dijo fue: "Por favor, María, no tengas miedo." Pero lo estaba. Se acercó, y el miedo comenzó a desaparecer y todo lo que pude hacer fue llorar. Él puso su brazo alrededor de mí y dijo: "Está bien, yo estoy aquí". Lo miré y le dije: "Pensé que me habías abandonado, estoy muy triste y pensé que estarías aquí". Bajó la cabeza y me recordó: "Estoy aquí siempre, no te he abandonado, me has abandonado tu". Lloré aún más y le dije que lo sentía. Y luego me desperté. Lloré tanto cuando desperté porque Jesús sabía que había renunciado a él. Y sentí vergüenza de haberlo hecho. Pero era fácil renunciar y aún más difícil mantener mi fe, cuando todo era malas situaciones detrás de otra. Después de ese día, rezo cada noche y sé que mi fe es la última cosa que necesito renunciar. Dios está conmigo en los buenos y en los malos momentos. Incluso cuando temo que lo haya decepcionado, sé que todavía está allí diciéndome que siga adelante. Sí, puede sonar un poco raro, pero es la verdad.

¿Sabes lo que es realmente genial? Tener un amigo sacerdote. Creo que él me ha visto en mi nivel más bajo, y cuando voy a oficina y parezco que fui golpeada por un tren, se toma el tiempo para darme el mejor consejo. Incluso cuando no quiero escuchar lo que me dice, sé que es lo que tengo que hacer. Y es difícil, pero tiene razón. Es tan loco como mi trabajo de recepcionista realmente ha transformado mi pequeño corazón. Por supuesto, todavía estoy aprendiendo muchas cosas y hago muchas preguntas, pero mayor parte de mi corazón está tan lleno de Jesús que toda esta ansiedad y miseria no tienen ni siquiera espacio para estar allí.

Estoy cansada. Realmente cansada. Cansada de que las cosas no vayan como yo las quiero, pero asi es la vida. Usted vive y aprende. Cuando una puerta se cierra otra se abre y creo en eso mucho. También soy un amiga mala y es hora de volver a conectar con los amigos a cuales no les hablo en mucho tiempo. También necesito tiempo para mí. Hacer más cosas que me hacen feliz. Quiero hacer más YouTube, blog y diseño, y perderme en mi trabajo por un tiempo. Sé que será cuando finalmente me encuentre y diga "Aquí, esto es lo que quiero hacer, quién quiero ser, y con quién quiero hacerlo". Pero por ahora, tengo que dar un paso atrás y decir "chill". Las cosas sucederán cuando se supone que sucedan. Aprender la paciencia. Aprender Amor, realmente amor. Aprender la felicidad. Aprender la fe. Y sólo ser yo.

"No se inquieten por nada; más bien, en toda ocasión, con oración y ruego, presenten sus peticiones a Dios y denle gracias. Y la paz de Dios, que sobrepasa todo entendimiento, cuidará sus corazones y sus pensamientos en Cristo Jesús." - Filipenses 4:6-7
