5 Things You Should Do Right Now To Be Successful

pexels-photo-212286

How successful you are really depends on your own definition of success. Are you planning on landing your dream job anytime soon? Maybe open a new business? or just start to have a happy and healthy life? I am guilty of looking at habit and routines of successful women and try to incorporate some that can work for my life as well. But it is definitely easier said than done. 

Are you willing to start your own journey for success? Here is what you might want to try.

**Disclaimer: I am not saying that this is the only way for you to become ‘successful’. Choose what works best for you.**


  1. Develop a hobby

I think that having a hobby aside from working your regular 9-5 is so important to have a work-life balance. Find out what you enjoy  doing outside of work and I guarantee you that you won’t regret it! In my case, my hobby is this blog that you are reading right now. This blog has helped me develop my writing and entrepreneurial skills in more ways than one. Aside from my blog, I also enjoy working out and going outdoor trekking. Never stop trying new things!

2. Find a Mentor

I think having a mentor can make a huge difference to your career. He/she doesn’t have to be a CEO or a President of some fancy corporation. But someone who you aspire to be or someone who can push you to achieve your career goals. Always help those who are willing to learn!

3. Surround Yourself With The Right People

I definitely think your journey to success depends on the people you surround yourself with. I think that it is important to create a support team that cheers you on and never doubts you, as you should be for them as well. There will always be some negativity one way or another, but surrounding yourself with equally ambitious people will help you motivated when things get rough! A mentor can also definitely be one of those people!

4. Learn One New Thing A Day

Kind of random but learning one new thing a day will help you boost your brain power. like staying up-to-date with current events! Whether you learn a super random fact, or you are trying to learn one new exotic word from the dictionary, it might just pay off one day.

5. Take Care of Yourself

As your success grows(because it eventually will), you will begin to realize that you aren’t getting any younger and you need to start looking out for yourself more than before. You are your biggest asset and never forget that success can bring some much craziness and happiness into your life. But can also bring stress and depression as well. So know your limits! Relax, work out, keep your body healthy and treat your body like a temple(keep it zen). What a difference it’ll make!

Sephora Dupes!! | Liquid Lipstick and Lipsticks

DSC00349

We are always out looking for the next best dupe in the market. But before we head out to have a look, you might want to see what you already have because chances are that you already have the thing that you want.

Take a peek of what I found in my drawers that were Sephora dupes and drugstore dupes! I found a sheer, nude and plum dupe for you guys! Thank God that I found this because this means that I don’t need to go out and buy things I don’t need!

The Clinique ‘Pop Lip’ Color & Primer in Nude Pop has been in the market for awhile. I usually pair this with a dark nude lip pencil and apply this on top to make it look like it has a bit of depth and shimmer. The dupes of this mid range lippie could possibly be the L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Beige Sienna and Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick in Rosetto.

This Nude dupe isn’t much of a drugstore dupe. But it is still a dupe that you can match at Sephora(*wink). The Urban Decay Comfort Matte Lipstick in Stark Naked is sort of the fraternal twin sister of MAC’s Velvet teddy but it is a tad bit more orange. While the Bite Beauty Lip duo in Whisper makes a great pair! Sorry that I don’t have a link to this!

The Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita has got to be one of the brands best selling liquid lipsticks. Aside from it being a good quality liquid lippie, it is also VERY comfortable to wear! And I noticed after all this time that I had a dupe for this all along! A creamier dupe at that! The Bite Beauty Lip duo in Mystic is the ONE!

Check out the swatches!!

What To Pack in your Gym Bag

DSC00294

If you’ve been keeping up with your fitness new year’s resolution, well… CONGRATULATIONS!! You are still on track to a healthier you! But if you are still getting started, you might need to know some essentials to make sure you come in the gym for different types of workouts.


First things first(I’m the realest), I stuff all my gym gear, big or small in my trusty Printed green canvas shoulder bag(which I don’t have a link to), but this is a similar one, link here!I like the whole zipper-less design to make it more versatile when I need to throw in a yoga mat or anything that can’t exactly fit in a closed bag.

Aside from taking with me a pair of rubber shoes like my Nike Zoom Pegasus sneaks, I make sure I throw in my long time favorite deodorant, the Lady Speed Stick. It has been tried and tested, its really the best!

The two things that I constantly bring in my bag even if I am not so sure if i’ll be using it are the Nike Training Gloves and my Nike Arm Band. The gloves come in handy when I do things like TRX, crossfit or basically things that have been holding a bunch of equipment. While the Arm Band comes to great use when I go on jogs because I always prefer taking my phone with me just incase! 

DSC00289When it comes to gym attire, I am not too picky when it comes to the actual apparel thats why I just like wearing my usual H&M Yoga Leggings and Sports Top. But when it comes to “support” I always like to make sure that I wear a high impact bra to keep the ladies up there!, my fave is the Nike Sports Bra (High Impact).

I don’t know if its just me, but I hate bringing huge water jugs to the gym. I see no point in bringing a 1.5L jug when you can easily fill it up at the gym if ever you run out anyway?! My 20 Oz Klean Kanteen is the best water jug I have ever had to date. It is so versatile!!! It keeps your drink iced for more than 24 hours and hot drinks for up to 8 hours. This is such a great investment! I already have two!

I am not much of a social person at the gym. I tend to focus on what I have to accomplish on that day then leave when I have finished it. To help me zone out all the overheard chitchat, I put on my Urbanears Humlan Headphones. I finally traded in my in-ear earphones for headphones because its less straining on my ears(because I also use these during my 9 hour work days), plus they are washable!

The last two things that I never fail to bring are a Generic Face Towel to wipe off all that sweat from spinning and my fave(only) fragrance, Gotas De Oro Perfume to hide my body odor after the gym!

***I know A LOT of my things are from Nike but this post is in NO WAY sponsored by them. LOL! I wish it was though!!(srsly though… Nike, my contact info is on my blog) I have a Nike depot close by so that has always been my go-to active wear store.
