AN OPEN LETTER TO THE RECENT COLLEGE GRADUATE




Dear Recent College Grad,

First things first, CONGRATS! You have just completed a task that many never even set out to do. Although you want to take in the moment and savor the hard work that you just put into the past four years of your life, that may seem hard at first. Everyone around you is focused on anything but that. The only question that anyone can seem to ask you is what you are going to do next (am I right?). I am here to tell you that it is okay to not know - BREATHE! This is such a crucial time for you to really reflect on what you really want for your life and figuring out how to accomplish that in the best way possible. I think that one of the most important things to remember during this time of your life is that YOU make the rules and YOU are the one that gets to create your own destiny. You need to train your brain from the very beginning that you deserve what ever your wildest/crazy dreams are. However, it is also important to understand that while working towards those dreams of yours you WILL have to do some things that are defiantly not on the top of your to-do list. This is what they call "paying your dues". Although this stage of your budding career may seem a little pointless, remember that every single person who has had an amazing career like you WILL have someday had these moments too. Try to take the time to learn something from every experience that you have and make the best out of every situation.


"Be bold enough to use your voice,
Brave enough to listen to your heart,
and strong enough to live the life you always imagined"


I think that college allows you to find your inner bad ass and everything after that is showing everyone else how much of a bad ass you really are. Do not be mistaken however, that convincing others of these bad ass qualities that you have can sometimes be challenging. PLEASE remember in these times that you are not the only one who struggles with this post grad life and NEVER let anyone break your spirit - YOU ARE WORTH YOUR DREAMS. There is not a single person out there that has the right to tell you that you are not good enough, because in the end we are all just people (weird concept, I know)!

The one rule that you must always remember as you now conquer the world is that kindness always wins. No matter what business that you are going into this is one concept that is universal and will always put you ahead - trust me!Kindness, patience and motivation are KEY.

You have made it this far, so you must be doing something right. Believe in yourself and keep kicking ass!

XX,
Priscilla

My Current Lip Obsessions


I feel like the secret to completing any makeup look is finishing it off with the right product on your lips. You know...the ones that make you wanna lay a big one on your honey to mark your territory! I also think that having a variety of these quality products in your bag is just as important. Let me share with you why these goodies made the top of my list and why they should be on yours too!(:

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss: 
This has been my go-to lip gloss for about three years now. I first got this in a birthday box from Ulta and have not been able to put it down ever since! The cost is only about 18 bucks and will seriously last you forever! It has a natural lip plumping formula in it that leaves your lips looking full and feeling magical instantly. I would like to warn you though this one is sticky, so you better watch out!

Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner:
I recently received this little baby complimentary from my friends at Kat Von D/Influenster and instantly fell in love! I have never really been a lip liner kind of gal, but I had been on the search for a good one that I would be able to easily transition into without breaking the bank. I really think that this was the answer. They sent over the Lolita shade and I don't think I will be switching to another one anytime soon...It was meant to be!! It lasts all day without leaving my lips dry and blends perfectly with my other favorite products already in my routine. BONUSEverlasting Lip Liner is completely free of animal-derived ingredients, YAY!

Kiehl's Butterstick Lip Treatment Duo:
Okay, so you may be catching on that I am mildly obsessed with all things Kiehl's...Ooops(: Well let's add one more thing onto this list shall we? I can not get enough of their new Butterstick Lip Treatment Duo! These little sticks pack a powerful punch by not only keeping your lips protected with SPF 25, but by also including amazing ingredients like Lemon Butter and Coconut Oil. 
BONUS: 100% of Kiehl's net profits up to $25,000 from the sale of this set will benefit Bright Pink for breast health education programs.

Shop these goodies now and make your lips kissable for summer!
