#Sponsored Makeup Monday Post

Today on the blog I am sharing one of my favorite new concealers from bareMinerals! The new BarePro was surprisingly spot on with color! As I like to use a lighter color concealer I was a little hesitant to try as I like yellow and orange color correctors because I have yellow undertones in my skin but it worked perfectly!

The color that I used was Dark Neutral-13 and I paired it with my Estée Lauder Full coverage Sandalwood-6W1.

This is an example of the baked look I sometimes wear and then layer with the foundation! 
Overall this concealer went on very smooth and the applicator was somewhat like a lipstick applicator which hey if you are used to the regular pod like holder this is refreshingly convenient! 
Overall I highly recommend this product which I got from #influenster as even though I got it free I would have bought it because of the great pigment and high quality!

10 Ways to Actively Practice Self Care

I came across the above quote from A Serene Pursuit and I had to share! It is way to easy to experience burnout so I have made a list of things we can do to actively practice self care so that we can refuel one task at a time! 

1. Do what you love to do to relax! 
If thats reading an amazing book or even dancing! Do it!! Trust your intuition in this regard as it is your body's natural way of relaxing!

2. Take a walk in nature.
There is something so relaxing about walking around nature that always refuels my soul! Bonus points if you go to a lake! I always felt relaxed when I would run around White Rock

3. Make yourself a bubble bath
* Bonus points add baking soda and epsom salt to your bath to relieve stress*

4. Journal
Journal your worries and cares that may be holding you back without you even realizing it!
I personally find fulfillment from writing its really therauptic for me so I have a tendency to write when I am stressed!

5. Yoga!!
I love yoga as it enable you to focus on the present moment and not worry about other things that do not serve you! 

6.  Watch one of your favorite childhood movies! There is something special about watching a nostalgic movie that reminds you of being a kid! Also its a reminder of how far you have come!

7. Say no to whatever doesn't light you up!
I got this one from Jessica When I read it I knew it was right for me! This means putting yourself first and saying no to things that do not serve you and you know will drain you!

8. Write yourself a love note to yourself! I actually have done this several times for when I feel down and need some inspiration to keep going and not to give up!

9. Work Out! Work Out! Work Out! 
Physical exercise may not seem to be an obvious choice but it enables you to get into your body and relieve endorphins! Its crazy how powerful and mind clearing a workout can do for your soul!

10. Meditate!
This one can be hard to do when we live such busy lives but its impact is so far reaching! 5 minutes a day keeps the stress away!! I myself did a 14 day mediation challenge and it was quite difficult to keep it up but I was able to accomplish so much. By intentionally  quieting my mind I realized what I needed to do to achieve what I wanted to achieve! Once you quiet your mind you change your thoughts which can change your life!!

I hope you enjoyed my tips for actively practicing self care!

Peace & Love,
Karen Beatty

Top Beachside🏖 Book Picks 📚

Hey y'all,

I have been MIA for the past week as I was celebrating my sisters birthday with a cute vacay getaway to the beach! I have been in need of rest and it is so important to rest to avoid burnout! So believe me when I say I soaked up every minute of beach time as I could!! 
Without further ado I am sharing my favorite books to read poolside and beachside and even just inside!

1.The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

This book I read by the pool and couldn't put it down and even read it on the flight back to Dallas. I am a die hard TGIT FAN so I was all in on reading this book!  I felt like I was reading a behind the scenes look at the creators life and its amazing to read. It's almost like it's a mixup of Cristina Yang/Olivia with a spruce of Annalise Keating! The creator behind all of these shows are her own personal narrative about how she set about intentionally changing her life!! #gamechanger

2. You are a Badass by Jen Sincero 

This book I actually have listened to it on audio and its amazing because it's actually the author herself reading the book! Its very easy to understand and focuses on breaking up the subconscious blocks that we catty around that keeps us from being successful!

I'm Currently reading YOU ARE A BADASS AT MAKING MONEY as well! This is great for all of my badass blogger babes it is just as good as the other BADASS book for changing your viewpoint on money and how we can become wealthy!! 

3. The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish

This book is by the famous comedian who sent the beyhive on a goose chase for the actress who bit Beyonce. Its a tale of her come up to be where she is today. It seriously sounds like her when you read it just like her character from Girls Trip! 
Great comedic motivational read!

4. #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

This is another top pick for all of my amazing #girlbosses out there! It tells the story of how Sophia Amoruso came to own her company #nastygal and tips for you to rock as your own #girlboss

5. I've Got My Eyes On You by Mary Higgins Clark

Lastly this New York Times Bestseller in Fiction is great if you are looking for a great murder mystery! This book is great for anyone looking to get lost in a murder mystery on the beach and is a real page turner!

Well I hope y'all love my list of my favorite Beachside Books to read! Life has been crazy so it feels good to get back in the swing of things with my blogposts! Lots of changes ahead so stay tuned! Also want to thank everyone for their support so far!! 

Sending lots of love your way!

Peace & Love,

This week I tried something new it's  called a rowing machine! 🚣🚣 I felt like I was in the @olympics or something!!😂  
But my trainer recommended that I mix it up with cardio! 
But I just started using it and it feels so natural and easy to get in the zone and keep pushing 

Rowing is great on the stomach which is perfect in that it won't upset my internally and it's actually my core that I have been targeting. I am actually engaging my core with every stroke and for of the machine and I saw results right away! 
Also check out this link from LiveStrong for more benefits of using a rowing machine(
