Happy New Year! It’s 2016

It’s a New Year guys!! So recently I’ve been thinking about the new year and resolutions/promises I want to make to myself. Normally I don’t make resolutions because since I’m being honest I tend to forget about them as soon as something else pops up in my life lol. However, this year I want to make a more attainable resolution/promise to myself. Recently, I’ve been struggling a lot emotionally and I’m the type of person to internalize it all and just not let anyone in on what’s going on. My resolution for the new year is to be more open about my feelings. In the new year I pledge to just be more honest about everything I might be facing at the moment and talk to the people closest to me about my struggles. It’s such an internal battle with me to open up with people and in the new year to ensure that my mind is at peace I pledge to stop holding everything in and just be 100% honest and open about my emotional struggles. Lord I know this will be hard because a lot of times I am afraid that the people closest to me won’t understand but I have to try. Trying is definitely the key. So this is my pledge.  (continue reading after the picture)New Year View Post

10 Things I’ve Learned In 2015

2015 probably was one of my hardest years ever. I felt like I wasted a lot of time this year, missed out on opportunities, had many personal growth moments and I also had a lot of emotional moments. This year was very trying for me. It was hard but i’m optimistic about the future. Tomorrow is 2016. This year went by really fast and I honestly have so many unanswered questions going into the New Year. This year I celebrated my 24th birthday and I didn’t really feel any older and I didn’t really feel any wiser. 2015 wasn’t all that bad though. It had it’s good and it’s bad moments. So today I wanted to share with you guys a little bit of what I learned and experienced in 2015.

The Christmas Tag

Christmas is in 4 days!! I’m so excited. I have 3 days of work this week and it’s going to absolute torture lol! I am officially finished Christmas shopping and all the gifts I bought are wrapped horribly I must say. No matter how much effort I put into wrapping presents they still come out so bad. I so envy people who can flawlessly wrap a present. Today, I want to share with you guys my answer to The Christmas Tag questions. I absolutely love these questions and even though I’m not a YouTuber, I still wanted to bring these questions to The Kiss of Joy. Feel free to copy and paste any question you like and answer below or on your own blog. Merry Christmas my loves ♥The Christmas Tag View Post

Just A Little Prayer

The holiday season is one of the happiest time. It’s a time that we focus on the light in our lives. It’s a time that we never really think about loss. We never think about things falling apart. It’s a time of bliss. Losing someone during the holiday season has to be one of the most traumatic experiences. It literally hits you harder because you’re really not expecting it. With all the tragedy going in the world I just wanted to say a small prayer for anyone who has recently loss someone or anyone who has been personally affected the recent events going on. In the midst of pain there is always hope, joy and a promise that one day everything will be okay.

Christmas Gift Guide // For The Skin Care and Makeup Obsessed

It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year. I absolutely love all things Christmas from the food to the Hallmark Channel original Christmas movie, spending time with my love ones and also shopping for the perfect Christmas present. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. This year I’ll be fortunate again to spend it with my family in Florida again so before I leave I have a lot of shopping to do. However, as usual I’m always stumped on what to buy everyone on my list. I have a silly confession, I’m someone who loves to shower people with gifts but when the time comes to actually buy the gift I never know what to buy lol. Fortunately, this year I’m prepared. I decided to create my own little gift guides and today I want to share with you all my first one. Today’s Christmas Gift Guide is catered to the people who love skin care and beauty products. I decided to categorize them just so that it would be easier to buy the gifts and also decide what I should and shouldn’t get people. Check out my Christmas Gift Guide For The Beauty/Skin Care Obsessed below and you can click each individual image to shop. Happy Holidays.
