lifestyle, Fashion and Beauty

I recently started a series of my blog featuring all my makeup products. This post will be the second out of four. All of my beauty products I own are cruelty free because that is something I’m incredibly passionate about.

My first post to the series featured all my face products which happens to be my favorite. This post is featuring my half of my eye products which happens to be my second favorite!

The Importance Of Thank You

Be Happy, lifestyle

I work in fast food, everytime one of my co workers hands something to hand out I say thank you. It’s not necessary how I was brought up but I’m one I’ve molded myself into. Don’t get me wrong, my family taught me manners but I’ve still realized a lot about the importance of saying thank you. 
You’re not entitled to be given things. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for 9 months yet everytime he buys me something or does something for me I say thank you. Why? Because he’s not obligated to get me food. He’s not obligated to hold the door for me. And I’m thankful for anything he does for me that I could do myself. 

It’s important to say thank you so people know you’re exactly what you’re saying, thankful. 

Not everyone feels this way but I write thank you cards almost everytime I’m gifted something. It’s both formal and shows that why you’re thankful has impacted you. 

It’s also important to write thank you notes or say thank you to important people. When I graduated high school I took time to write thank you notes to teachers that impacted my life. 

In the end, thank you shows anyone you’re thankful for what they’ve done for you. If you enjoyed this post don’t forget to check out the rest of my blog and my Instagram, @corahandley !

There was a lot of heat with this pallet but there’s nothing ashy about the shadows in this pallet.

Although I’m currently not able to wear makeup right now do to minor surgery on my eye, I can already tell I’m in love with this pallet. I’ve been wanting a pallet with colors like these for years. All of the following swatches are shown with flash! The color shown is also the one with the dot!

My Cruelty Free Makeup Collection Series Part One

beauty, Fashion and Beauty, lifestyle

I’ve decided to do a four part series of my makeup collection. I’m wanting to divide it up so that it’s not one large post and so that I can go very in depth with all my products. I have a post here about all my organization. The first part, part one, I’m going to be talking about all my face products.

These are probably my two favorite drawers. Something about having the look of flawless skin makes me so happy.

The Happiness Planner Review 

Be Happy, lifestyle

When deciding to scroll through my Instagram a few weeks ago I stumbled upon an ad for something called a Happiness Planner and I was instantly intrigued.

In about two months I’m headed to college and I’m in need of a planner. I’m also doing everything in my power to stay happy, I don’t talk about it a lot on here but I actually have a mood disorder so my mental health is something I really need to focus on.

What I Learned From Deleting Social Media

Be Happy, lifestyle

You would never guess that a content creator would willingly delete their social media, but I did just that. Around November 2015, I decided to delete all of my social media and I decided today I want to share my experience with you.

I created a video about this two years ago, here’s the link.

So this was the most eye opening experience I’ve ever had. I’ve realized that there is so much more to live than your phone. As a mention in my video, it seems like a pretty face gets more likes than an inspirational post.
