Budget Beauty Loves

Hey guys! As you all know, I love doing my makeup. I personally like it because its very expressive and its helped a lot of people with their confidence. I do love waltzing around Ulta or Sephora to look at all of the makeup, but makeup is freaking expensive! I don't know about you guys, but I don't have money to always splurge on expensive products.  However, certain makeup is expensive for a reason. Its quite hard to find cheap makeup that works as well as the name brands. I have explored several products from cheaper brands and have found quite a few products that I really enjoy using. So, for today's post, I thought that I would share a few of the products that I found with you guys.

Chapter 1

I lay my head down on the metal train railing. A tear streaked down my cheek as a realized my whole world was crumbling right in front of my eyes and I couldn’t do anything about it.
“Hey,” I heard a familiar voice say “we are going to be fine Mia, I promise.”

“Evan,” Evan has lived next to me for as long as I can r…

Laura Lee Brushes - One thing I've been dying to get my hands on for a while now is the Laura Lee's Favorite Brush Collection. I've been watching her videos for years and I have grown up learning to do makeup with these brushes. This collection is usually always sold out and hard to get your hands on. Correct my if I am wrong, but I'm pretty sure that the brushes are going to be restocked on the 30th this month. I'm crossing my fingers that I…

The Death Disease

  Fear struck throughout my body as I heard the door crack open. I tried not to make a sound as I reached for the knife wedged beneath my pillow. The door slowly opened and I  was ready to throw the knife at whoever was coming in. I didn’t trust what they were doing here. It just didn’t seem right.
“What are you doing here?!?” I whispered in relief. It was Isaac.

Anxiety and How To Deal With It

I have been dealing with anxiety for quite a while now. I know that many of you have also been dealing with struggles in your life, like anxiety. It's something that can greatly impact our lives and the way we live them. For example, today my art club went on a tour of a nearby college campus. We were eating in the food court and my friends were extremely loud and very obnoxious. Everyone was starring at us and giving us dirty looks. That's when my anxiety kicked in. I ran into the bathroom to try and calm myself down. Over the years, I have learned a couple of things that help calm me down when my anxiety takes over. 

Breathe - You always have to keep your breathing slow and steady. I always shut my eyes and take a deep breath in and slowly let it out. I actually find this to be extremely hard when I'm having an anxiety attack, but doing it will help so much. You are in a state where your mind is racing, breathing helps to slow down your heart rate which helps to calm…
