Who would have known I’d be in the emergency room on a random Tuesday just conveniently at 1:08am? Probably you. If you’ve been following me on this wild journey, then you know that I’m a frequent flyer at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. I hate to admit it but I know 90% of the cardiac team by first name and even manage to squeeze in impromptu coffee dates with some while picking up refills of my highly-priced medication.
Here we are again full swing. And to be completely honest with you I’m actually really scared. My birthday is weeks away and it freaks me out that I’ll be TWENTY-FIVE. Can we just rewind to the part where I would run off the bus to watch Lizzie McGuire and only take bathroom breaks during the commercials? If only that was a real possibility, right? Well there is a real possibility in successfully setting goals and achieving them in 2020.
Everyone’s situation has its own unique code… DNA if you will. No situation is the same and it shouldn’t be the same.

I am the biggest minimalist that probably ever existed. The idea of having multiple steps to something like makeup sounds very unappealing and I’m most definitely not interested. Kristen from Total Beauty completely agrees with me – “When it comes to face makeup, most of us will go to amazing lengths in order to find that perfect product. That one foundation, powder or concealer that completely hides spots, minimizes lines and creates an overall flawless finish. (Does one such product even exist?) We will spend a ton of cash — maybe not on one product, but on the hundreds we’ve tested in a lifetime — read reviews until we’re dizzy and, of course, allow makeup artist after makeup artist to convince us that their product is the best.” Well I’m no makeup artists or makeup guru with millions of subscribers on YouTube, but when it comes to setting powders I can tell you wholeheartedly that I seriously LOVE Sacha Cosmetics Buttercup Powder.
