Why Don't I Have Everything I Want?!



If you're like me you often times ask yourself "WHY DON'T I HAVE EVERYTHING I WANT?" and by everything I want, I mean:

  • A ridiculous amount of money
  • Not having to work
  • A passport full with traveling adventures
  • A nice house with a walk in closet, gourmet kitchen, and infinity pool.....
You get the picture.

When I get that deep in thought I really put myself into the process of having everything my heart desired. Then, I begin to get somewhat depressed. Not because I don't have all of those things, but because I realize that I would go crazy and end up being extremely unhappy if I had all of them.

Why You Ask? "How could you think that?" "Money would make me soooo happy!"

Well yea, the initial emotion I would have would be happiness. Extreme happiness!

I would travel the world! Try new things. Buy a few homes. Make sure my family was taken care of. Buy my dream closet, with all the clothes, shoes, and accessories I have dreamed about. Drive a baller car. I wouldn't have to work anymore. I wouldn't have to stress.

But when all is said and done, and you have visited every last place on earth. Purchased every last material thing you could possibly want. Then what?

Wouldn't life become boring? Wouldn't you run out of things to do?

You could potentially turn to drugs and alcohol making you happy.
You become unmotivated. Depressed.
Miserable to be around because you literally have nothing to complain about, so you start complaining about the colors of Starbucks cups during the holiday season...

See where I am getting at?

You don't need to be a millionaire to be happy. In fact according to FORBES the "Happiness Salary" is $75,000 a year! YES, that is still an extremely difficult salary to acquire. But it proves my point.

I'm not saying you're not allowed to want things. Hell, I still want those things on my list. But you don't NEED to have them to be happy.

Be thankful for what you have!!

Be thankful for:

  • Your relationships (significant other, family, friends, God)
  • Waking up in the country where you are free to do as you please (for the most part)
  • A VAST selection of food & restaurants to choose from on the daily basis
  • Your health
  • Your job (unless they're treating you like crap, in that case, leave that job)
  • Another day to start new
I hope this helps you if you're feeling low. There is so much to be happy about!

Don't Trust the Hype: Benefit "They're Real Push-Up Eyeliner"

This review is long over-due.

A few months ago Benefit came out with "THEY'RE REAL PUSH UP EYELINER", and everyone went bonkers over it and bought themselves one. I followed close suit, and purchased one myself. Being a frequent Cat-Eye "repper" I thought this product would make my life easier. 

 Behold!

Upon opening the packaging, I would say that the product looks very cute, and very sturdy. 
 I couldn't wait to try it out as soon as I yanked it out of the box!

 I read directions and started to turn the bottom to help the product come out of the top. It takes about 30 twists for stuff to come out! If you turn it too much, you have an excess amount of eyeliner slowly oozing out as well.. so that is CON #1

#2 Upon putting the product on my eyelid, it was very THICK. The product, along with the rubber angle "brush" would pull on my skin and would not apply smoothly. There were spots and streaks. And when you have blond lashes like me, this is not an acceptable option. I had to apply a different eyeliner to coverup the spottiness, because if you apply too much of this it turns into a cakey mess.


Pros:
LASTS ALL DAY

In Conclusion, if you wish to blow $25 dollars on a "precision" eyeliner, I would not recommend purchasing Benefit Push-Up Liner.

I would lean more towards KAT VON D Tattoo Liner. It is less expensive and very easy to apply. 

Thanks For Reading!!

XOXO
