It's Not All Girly ... I Promise

Hello Hapi People!

Thank you to everyone who is sharing my blog! I really appreciate your support. Also, to those of you who are new ... Welcome! You are officially one of my Hapi People lol.

Now I know the blog looks a bit girly, and yes that was its original intention, but I'm here to tell you its not all girly. I know my boyfriend will read this and think "Thank goodness!" haha! I just want to come here and talk - relate to other people if I can and share with all of you.

Quick! Help! I'm Stressin'!

Hello Hapi People!

Can you feel it? Spring is in the air, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and .... STRESS IS HERE!!!

Spring can be a stressful time for everyone because a lot of events are happening. School is wrapping so students have finals and projects. Some people are graduating and moving on to college, grad school or higher, or going into the real world. Its tax season ... which speaks for itself. You may be looking for a summer job or trying to plan for the summer. Anyways, like I've said in a previous post, spring is a time for change and challenges. If you are like me, when I hear those words I think "Bring on the stress!" lol

Being Real Ya'll

This post was supposed to go out yesterday but I spent a lovely evening with my boyfriend after a very long week of barely seeing each other and decided that was priority. It’s been a long week of finals and I’m almost done. Those of you who have been to school know how stressful it is during finals. I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to post about this topic of school and finals but, I want to be honest and real. In the spirit honesty, I have to say ... this semester sucked! It was horrible and I wasn't at school the majority of the time. It was difficult for me to be there from being sick, anxious, and not being able to sleep. It is the last week of school. I have been doing my best to rest up for this week and take my exams. I have one more to do this weekend but I'm pretty much done. I know judgment will come but honestly it could have been worse. 


Hello Hapi People!

I'm looking at my calendar and its nearly the end of April - I can hardly believe it. This spring has been a beautiful one with wonderful weather here in Florida. Spring is always a time of change and this spring definitely has been a change in pace for me. Life has presented new challenges and delights that I have not before experienced. From challenges with my voice and school, thinking about the future, and having a serious and healthy relationship ... its a lot to take in. I believe though, that I let the challenges blind me from the opportunities and positivities in my life. I do try to look for the positives and blessings in my life. I thankfully have people in my life (who are blessings themselves) who remind me of them.

Slump Day Inspiration

Hello Hapi People!

It's Wednesday and I know by mid week I get that Hump Day Slump. I know some people find inspirational stuff cheesy, but I thought I would share some inspirational quotes and pictures I found on Tumblr (click link to find more). I like finding quotes and thoughts that give me a new outlook on life or say something in a new way. Just getting a little motivation to keep going can make all the difference in your attitude about everyday life. So whether you are having a hard, stressful week or you are just feeling down, uninspired, or discouraged - I hope these help a little.

Summer Goals

Hello Hapi People,

It's Tuesday and I am in my last week of school. Its a bit hectic because I am figuring out end of the year and exam stuff, but its all good. With the end of the school year though, I'm actually starting to think about summer plans and goals. I am terrible about setting and keeping goals; I'm super lazy lol. However, I have some important things that I want to do this summer.

I think when I set goals, it tends to be a really big goal that tend to overwhelm me once I am going after it. I did some research and I found this site called Its a career skills building website with tips and articles that break down different important personal skills. I found an article titled Personal Goal Setting and I found some basic but important things to remember.

MindTools says that when setting personal goals to start with these steps:

Makeup Monday

Hello Hapi People!

I hope you had a good weekend. I thought to start of each week, I would post a weekly "Makeup Mondays" where I show you new makeup looks, give you tips & tricks, talk about new products and show you old favorites. I thought I would start with my everyday kind of neutral look and tell you what I used.

So here is the look, I hope you like it.

Pin It!

Hello Hapi People!

It's Saturday and I'm probably still in bed if you're reading before 11:00am lol. I love scheduled posting! Haha anyways ... Happy Saturday, I hope you are doing something cool or getting to relax after a long week. I wanted to share something that I like to do when I am chilling out at home.

What Makes Me Happy

Hello Hapi People!

I think that is what I'm going to call my friends here lol, Hapi People. Though I always use the short-hand "ppl" ... idk I'll work on it.

Anyways, I wanted to get more in depth about what I'm going to share with the world here on the blog. In my last & first post, I said right now in my life I feel creating this blog was needed. The reason for that being is that I am having some health issues. I know "here we go, another person rambling about their problems", but this is just fyi in case you want to know more about me. You Don't have to read this post but I hope it will help someone.

Anywho, I am college student getting a Bachelors in Music Education at the University of West Florida.
