Focusing on the Present

Happy Sunday!!

I was having a bit of trouble trying to think of a theme for this week and finally this morning I thought of one that perfectly sums up this week.  Focusing on the Present really summarizes my week because I caught myself getting overwhelmed about the future a lot this week!

Focusing on the Present

As many of you may know, I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree this May.  While I am super happy and proud that I reached such a huge milestone, it also means that I have to find a full time job!  The future can be super scary to think about but remembering to focus on the present really helps!!  Keep reading to see how my week went as well as how I cope when I start thinking too much about my future.  Enjoy!

Sit Back Sunday #15

Happy Sunday!!!

This week, I would say, was a perfect example of a college student in her last semester.  I had a few assignments due that I honestly did not want finish and my only motivation to finish those assignments was that if I don’t do them, then I don’t get to graduate!!

Returning to Makeup & Flowers

Long time, no blogging!!!

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on Makeup & Flowers!! There are a couple of reasons why I have decided to come back but one major reason is that I’m about to graduate with my Bachelors Degree and as that time gets closer, I feel the pressure of finding a job and in the process I can start to feeling lonely, if that makes sense.  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that doesn’t have a job lined up after graduation but at times it feels like that.  Blogging helps me feel a sense of belonging and also a sense of purpose since I’m doing something creative that I really like.


I decided to come up with a schedule in order to help me keep blogging longer than once or twice so here it is!!  Continue reading


Some of you may know that my 22nd birthday was on Monday!  I didn’t do anything big, I just spent the day with my family and boyfriend.  I, of course, had to start the day off my listening to Taylor Swift’s 22!! The night before my birthday I made a playlist for my birthday, it was mostly up beat songs but it also featured some of my favorites that weren’t as upbeat as the other songs.


I had such a wonderful day on my birthday but it also made me think about a few changes that I want to work on.  I know that at 22 I am still young but I think it is also time to start developing good habits for later on.  Because of this, I thought I would make a list of things that I want to work on while I’m 22, so if you’re interested, keep reading.  Enjoy!!

Making the Best Out of Life

Sometimes in life things go according to plan but more often then not, they go a completely different direction.  Even though things may not go how we wanted them to go, in order to be happy, we must make the best out of any situation.  I am only 21 but in those years I have encountered situations like this.  I will admit that when things go wrong, I do stress and I feel like my life isn’t ever going to be how I want it to be.  However, things always end up good and I am always grateful for what happened.

Life Update


Ever since the 2016 started I haven’t had a good blogging schedule and it’s really starting to bug at me.  Starting school hasn’t helped either as this semester I am taking 5 classes.  Because of this blogging instability, I have asked myself if I truly want to keep blogging and the answer is yes!! I do want to keep blogging but just like anything that is good, I have to work hard to keep this blog and better it.

I usually blog 5 times a week and I’ve tried to blog less but I don’t really like that so I am going to try harder to blog 5 times a week and also take my pictures one day so that days that I get home tired, all I have to do is write my post and the pictures are already taken care of.  I also want to be more active on social media.  My favorite platforms are Instagram and Snapchat.  You can find my accounts on the sidebar or you can find me on both accounts by the username “kaarlaa88”

While there has been a lot of things going on this year so far that got in the way of my blogging, that situation is getting better.  I also have two weeks off work so I will definitely use this time to get back into blogging consistently.

Also stay tuned because I will be posting a makeup review later today!

It’s a Journey | Healthy Me

It’s been a while since I have done a “Healthy Me” post and I wanted to do one again but I wasn’t really sure what to talk about.  Lately I don’t feel like I am healthy or like I am trying hard to reach my goals.  I almost felt like the wrong person to be writing about being healthy.  I was feeling this way until I realized that for someone like me, that has a bit of an unhealthy relationship with food, can give some insight and maybe someone out there feels the same and now they know they are not alone.  So today I want to talk about how a healthy lifestyle is a journey and tell you a bit more about mine. Enjoy!
