It's Christmas Time once again!
I want to just urge people out there not splurge on meaningless gifts. I found myself at MAC the other day purchasing three lipsticks. I then picked up a lipliner which costs just as much as the lipsticks and thought what am I doing? I haven't even paid my cellphone bill this month yet. I put everything down and walked out of the mall.
During the holidays, it's easy to get wrapped up in the spirit of giving however no one expects gifts from you- except for your own children of course. I seen a haul last night of a girl who had over 20 gifts. She went on and on about her MAC products, Bath and Body works candles and fragrances and all her other makeup from Inglot. I thought to myself.. there must be better ways she can spend her money. However I thought about my own makeup shopping habit and how I walked out Sephora with $75 worth of things and only paid ten dollars.
I wanted to let my subscribers in on how they can get free Sephora gift cards! Yes, free!!
OK. If you have an Iphone, download the app 'Viggle'. You get points for watching television. You check into different shows and accumulate points. Once you have a certain number of points, you can get gift cards for Sephora, FootLocker, Chilli's, etc- it changes every month. If you download the app don't forget to friend me!

Yes! Just what the title says. I'm never lonely but I'm alone all the time. Out of a month two weeks or more is spent by myself. I can never be lonely when I have myself. When most girls get older, and no! not 19 years old, I mean 27 or more, you start to really learn about yourself. You know more or less what you want out of life and who you want in it. You know what you bring to the table, what you want in the future, etc. You can never be alone when you have a person who you love, yourself.
What do I do on those days and nights with just me? If I'm not working, I indulge in my hobbies. D.I.Y projects (Do It Yourself) are an addiction. I frequent the dollar store, Michaels, TJ Maxx (my favorite!), Marshalls, etc and put together new decor for my home. I don't watch TV, I wholeheartedly believe television can take up your entire day if you let it. Many Saturdays have been blown in front of the tube and by the end of the night wondering where my day went. I also make money online which if you read my post about at-home jobs you know when I'm bored I can hop on and make money. I'll do other blog posts about places you can go and make money online at a later date.
I'm a coupon lady, I have a book full of coupons I clip daily. I love to find new recipes so when surrounded by more people, I can show off my skills. I love to sip wine and pinterest. Spending time with my dog is always fun and she can cheer me right up. There are countless things I can do by myself and I in fact do them. I hate to hear about all the "lonely" women who are constantly calling their significant others, friends, family. With military spouses it can be like that. I see this more with new spouses, they get depressed, lonely and downright bored with life. You have to make the most out of every minute of your life. Don't spend everyday wishing it was the next, that's no way to spend your youth (we are the oldest we're ever going to be and the youngest we're ever going to be right now).
I learnt this the hard way unfortunately. During our first deployment I would go to work, come back home and try to fall asleep quickly wishing the next day would come fast. The day of him coming home came...and went and another deployment came again. I looked back on being 25 and I have no memories, it was work and sleep waiting on someone to get home. It's sad, even if you do love someone that is no way to live YOUR life. I became determined with the time I spent alone to make strides in connecting with who I was. I excelled at work, made new friends with people whom I would never befriend, cooked more often, took more pictures, researched my family, traveled...by myself! Yes, Josh deployed and I was out too..lol.
I urge my viewers whom are mostly women to find yourself. You can take some of my ideas or do your own. You will never be truly happy unless you are happy with yourself.
