HOW I MOTIVATE MYSELF

Happy Monday y’all! How’s your day going? Ahh, I’m really trying hard to be productive this week, all I did for the past few days was binged on Netflix & Wine! I know, I feel so guilty for doing those! So today, I just got done working out and trust me, I was struggling! I was planning of doing 5k of sprint today but I only did half of that, I really have to get  back on my track! I’m not going to lie, I’ve been ditching the idea of going to the gym for the past few weeks just because I was being lazy and lately I feel so ugly so here we go, told my dear self that I am not doing it again. Ever! I know for a fact that  it’s hard to be motivated all the time. No matter how long your list are there will be a time where you just wanna lay down, trust me when I say you’re not alone with this, you got me! Lol (ya know, just to make yourself feel better haha) There will be a time where you don’t wanna finish your errands for the day, there will be a time where you don’t want to write a blog post just bc it’s not due tomorrow yet and the list goes on! So for today’s post I am going share my short list on how I motivate myself when I feel like not doing anything.

PERFECT HAIR WITH LUXYHAIR

Hello Everyone! I know, I’ve been MIA recently and so unproductive this week so for me to be able get back on my track, I’ve been going to gym and more cardio. I haven’t been active for almost a month now just bc I’ve been lazy, too many excuses but told myself that ain’t doing that again which I said the same thing last week! Lol Good luck to my dear self! Haha I’m pretty excited for the coming week even though we’re about to experience another hurricane, so much things to cross off on my long list and one of it is sharing with y’all my Luxyhair. If you’ve been following me on Instagram (aprildilao) probably y’all noticed that suddenly I have my long hair, I meant, my hair is always been long but this time even longer and healthy looking. This was my first time wearing clip in hair extensions and trust me when I say, ooh gosh I want to wear them everyday. I got , Ombre Chestnut #T1C6,  this set weights 220g, as you can see, looks like I have a naturally thick hair and this weight will create the most seamless blend. When I was a kid I used to wish I have long & healthy hair and can’t believe that Luxyhair made it possible for me. I get A LOT of compliments whenever I wear these and always makes me feel EXTRA—who doesn’t like compliments after all? Right! I get to experience what it’s like to have luxuriously long and voluminous hair everyday now bc of my Luxyhair!

So why Luxyhair? They are very affordable and cause absolutely NO damage to your own hair. You can have longer, thicker, and more beautiful hair than ever before, in just a matter of minutes! Usually it’ll only take me 5 mins to wear them unless I want to curl them and viola, I have the perfect hair that I always dreamed of!

How is life in the US for foreigners?

 

Hello Everyone! How’s your weekdays going so far? I know it’s almost Friday again! As the time goes by I feel like days are getting shorter & shorter, probably everyone thinks the same! Anyway for today’s post I’ll be kinda different from my previous posts since I usually get this question a lot, How is life in the US for foreigner? All the things I mentioned below is based on my experienced, so yup, If you’re interest with what I’m going to say just keep reading this post. To everyone who don’t know yet, I’ve been living here in the US for almost 3 years and I can’t still fathom the fact that I am actually here, with my other half and chasing my dreams! I used to only see some of the iconic places here in the US on Telivision and now—I’m actually living in it! Way back then I used to asked people who actually been here if how’s USA look like? Does it look like all the American movies? College students really do party like in the Movies? So on and so forth! I did think that all the places here in North America will be all look like New York City & all the people live in Suburb since that’s what I saw in the movies but I was wrong, really wrong! Movies kinda killed the reality for me! Lol So without any further ado, here’s a few things I realized how’s like to live in the US for 3 years.

FLORAL DRESS FOR FALL

Hello Everyone! Hello First of Fall aka the best time of the year! Today is the first day of Fall but doesn’t feel like it because of the 90 degrees weather outside this afternoon. Lol I wonder when are we going to have REAL fall like any other places up North! #Duuh (we’re in the South girl so stop dreaming! Never going to happen!!Lol) I know I’ve been MIA for a while and I promise to catch up with you guys by posting another blog post tonight. So here’s a quick rundown after I decided to do this full time. I was actually really afraid doing this but to the amount of work I’m getting recently is just crazy overwhelming, in a good way and I’m not complaining y’all—it’s just crazy how the universe works! I will be forever grateful, I know for a fact that there will be an ups and downs with this, trust me when I tell you that I don’t care at all, I love doing this, this is my passion so bring it on! Lol I actually just got home from New Orleans, staycation and went to an event this morning, I can’t wait to tell you more about it in a few!

To all the ladies out there who’s brave enough to wear floral dresses during fall raise your right hand! Lol! To be honest I wasn’t confident wearing floral dresses during Fall season before, but as the time goes by I’ve learned so much, it’s just all about the little details and tricks, time to change your thinking that floral dresses isn’t just for spring, we just have to pick the right color, burgundy, purple, emerald green and the list goes on! Also the key to creating look with one piece of clothing is adding some layers to it besides Fall is all about layering, with this kind of dress I should’ve throw some denim jacket if only it wasn’t 90 degrees outside! Haha

TOP REASONS WHY I’M TAKING THIS BLOGGING LIFE TO ANOTHER LEVEL

Hello Everyone! Ahhh, life has been crazy busy lately, I hosted a party yesterday, lots of my friends came over and I did not really expect that, good food and meaningful conversation, y’all can’t really beat that and knowing the fact I managed to cooked so much Filipino food was fulfilling, I was kinda nervous but hey, they loved it or maybe they were just being nice! Lol Anyway, yesterday was my first day of being self-employed, It haven’t sunk in yet actually that I am really doing this thing full time, still trying to contemplate everything but nevertheless I am grateful and thankful for everything and next week I have event that I am going to attend to and pretty much excited, I actually can’t wait to tell you guys about it so for now here’s the my top reasons why I’m taking this blogging life to another level.

Passion

Back in high school, a teacher asked us to write a long paragraph of “WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS?” I think I put that I wanted to be a teacher and obviously that wasn’t true” I lied to my teacher! Lol (Hoping she don’t read my blog) Haha After Keith  and I got married he asked me that again, and my answer was “Well, I want to be a Executive Secretary” which I was back home. I got that job after I graduated in College and honeslty I did not mind doing paperwork and such! When I moved here in the US I lost IT again, I was trying to figure out what I want to do, what kind of job should applied for. That was also the time where I blog just to kill time. Then whenever K & I travelled somewhere I always have this mind set that I have to take photos of everything so I can share it to my friends, family & now readers. Before I did not know that some people out there do this for a living, I really thought blogging was just for people who love to share the lesson they learned, thoughts and experiences. I don’t consider this as a job, because I don’t mind staying up late, spending hours in front of my office desk and of course dressing up, words can’t even explain how! Like they say,“Find a career you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”and viola!! here I am and can’t believe that I found it. It took me years to figure out what I really want to do with my career, I had to go back n forth but little did I know, it was in front of me the whole time, I wasn’t just taking it seriously.
