[Beauty] TESTED | Instagram Makeup

Hi hi hi!

I got this crazy idea a few days ago while I was taking a quick break from work and scrolling through Instagram. I love seeing these glam looks shared on all the pages I followed, but living in Vegas, where temps can get up to 110+ degrees, I thought to myself that there’s no way these looks would last. So I decided to try one out.  Continue reading “[Beauty] TESTED | Instagram Makeup”

What’s In Janellie’s Belly? | What I Ate Wednesday

Hi hi hi!

Welcome to another post for, “What’s In Janellie’s Belly?” I hope you’ve had an amazing start to 2017 and if not, guess what, you have 361 days that are still unwritten! Anyhow, before we dive into the actual post, let me open up a little as to why I decided to track what I’m eating.

One of my goals every year is to lose weight, but I have never been successful and I think it’s mainly because I just lose motivation a couple weeks into my “lifestyle change.” I have tried so many different tactics to get me to actually change my lifestyle, but nothing ever seems to work. So this year, I started making a change, well, not really a change, more like an addition. Instead of constantly focusing on portion sizes, calories, etc. I decided to track what I eat everyday and any physical activity I do, including steps. This way I have to be accountable for everything that I am putting into my body. Originally, I tried doing this by tracking my caloric intake, but it became all about the numbers and I was hungry so often! It sucked and so I stopped.

I like this method more because it’s not about the numbers, it’s about what I am choosing to put in my body. When I look back on the weeks I can see where I may have gone wrong – maybe I shouldn’t have eaten the cookie, maybe I shouldn’t have had the Starbucks drink, etc. I also figured that eventually when I’m ready to make a dietary change, I can go in and see where I’m taking in the most caloric intake or where I can switch in a healthier option.

I started tracking my diet back in December and it took me a little bit to get into the habit of filling out my planner everyday, but now I look forward to it. Though I am not too excited about jotting down all the food I consume, I am excited to jot down the exercise/any activity I do.

Anyhow, with that extremely long explanation out of the way, let’s get into the actual post! Continue reading “What’s In Janellie’s Belly? | What I Ate Wednesday”

[BABY RANT] WHERE THE REAL GIRLS AT?!

I’m not calling out any specific girl, nor group of girls. 

As I scroll through Instagram, I tend to see, what I  like to call, “Typical Insta-girl.” I mean think about it and take a scroll through your Instagram ‘Explore tab.’ I’m tired of seeing these made up faces with tons of makeup on because I want to be able to do it, but I can’t. I’m a girl that would rather get more sleep than conceal and contour. I give myself about an hour to get ready and I usually only use 30-35 minutes of that time.  Continue reading “[BABY RANT] WHERE THE REAL GIRLS AT?!”
