My 30 before 30 Bucket List

Hello, all welcome back to another blog post :). Today I am posting my 30 before 30 Bucket List. Since I am currently a few weeks before turning the BIG 3-0 I wanted to post my bucket list and see how much I have accomplished and what I yet to complete. I have seen some posts around about turning 30 and their goals and I have decided to share mine. 

  1. Graduate College- (2010,2013,2015 were all my graduation dates from Associate’s degree, to my Bachelor’s degrees.)
  2. Dye my hair a fun color (Red, Blonde, highlights were all done on my hair)
  3. Crochet items- (Two twin size blankets, 4 mini blankets, booties, a sweater for a baby.)
  4. Visit Mexico- Went and had an incredible time, visited several places in Mexico
  5. Visit Florida- Had an amazing time in Florida. Got to experience how people live there different from New York.
  6. Have a baby/ start my own family- Started my family with my fiancé who we’ve been together for 10 years. I love my son and our little family. 
  7. Go to the movies alone- Enjoyed this experience did it several times, this wasn’t awkward at all.
  8. Go out to eat alone- Loved my own company eating alone had time to reflect and nobody notices nothing everyone is consumed in their own lives. Everyone should try this at least once.
  9. See a Broadway show- West Side Story was great on Broadway. I heard there making a new one looking forward to seeing it.
  10. Go camping- I have gone camping once and it was an interesting experience. For someone who doesn’t like bugs, I am proud of myself for trying and facing all that was thrown my way :).
  11. Volunteer- I have volunteered in several different ways and will continue to do so. Walked for causes, donating time to the elderly, donating clothes, coat drives. In 2020 I would like to do a back to school backpack drive and a toy drive for children. 
  12. Own a pet- I had an amazing dog named Bucca who sadly passed away September 2, 2018. Had her for 11 unforgettable years will always be thankful for her. 
  13. Read 50 books- I can proudly say that in the past 10 years I have read approximately a little over 300 books in both Spanish and English.  
  14. Have family pictures taken-  We have been doing good so far.
  15. Take better care of my health- I have been working on taking better care of my health. Health is wealth.
  16. Get rid of 30 things in 30 days-  I have been working on throwing things out several times it helps with clutter. 
  17. Rekindle an old friendship- I reconnected with a college friend who I haven’t spoken to in 10 years :). 
  18. Make new friends- I have made some amazing new friends
  19. Hug more-  lots of hugs have been given and many smiles follow. 
  20. Host my own Thanksgiving- Hosted Thanksgivings in 2017,2018.
  21. Start a blog – Rewritten Perfectly est. 2018
  22. Plan my 30th birthday party- Currently planning a great birthday having my best friend coming over from Texas to celebrate. Stay tuned for all my 30th birthday event. And also we will be celebrating it in small with family. 
  23. Host a craft party for moms and kids- Looking forward to sharing all of the mommy and me moments I have done so far and the ones we have coming soon :).
  24. Keep a plant alive- Currently have two plants that were gifted to me that are thriving 🙂 hoping it remains that way.
  25. Go outside your comfort zone-I have had a lot of growth when it comes to coming out of my comfort zone, which has helped tremendously with feeling anxious.
  26. Build your own values- This is important for me especially since I now have a little family of my own.
  27. Learn who your true friends are- One of the best lessons I have learned was to learn who my true friends are. 
  28. Smile more- Smiling a lot more these days. Since becoming a mom I find that seeing life through my son’s eyes gives me a reason to smile more.
  29. Ignore what others say about you- This too has been a valuable lesson I have learned. What others say about me is absolutely none of my business. 
  30. Parent your child the way you feel is best not what others may impose on you- I have successfully have been doing this since the day my son is born. 

 

After going through all of my 30 before 30 bucket list, I realize I have accomplished most if not all of it. I look forward to making new accomplishments to work on in the new decade I am about to embark on. What will your new goals be? What is your Bucket list for the next decade? I look forward to reading yours please leave them below in the comment section. 

 

As always I thank you all for stopping by today. Until next time

Mask Monday

Hello, all welcome back to another blog 🙂 Mask Monday. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend enjoying the weather. This past week my hair endured a lot of sun exposure. To say my hair feels as crispy as a KFC extra crispy I would be an understatement. Not only did my hair get exposed to hot summer sun heat but I also had gel which dried it even more. My skin has been taken a pretty severe burn as well this past week.

For my hair, I wanted to add more shine so I decided to go into my nearest Sally’s beauty and purchase a clear hair gloss which will help restore shine and soften my hair.

For my skin, I wanted to try and use a DIY lemon, this honey mask is supposed to be great on the skin.

For my lips, I am still doing Laneige’s Sleeping Lip mask since it’s been helping my lips.

Products I used:

Ion Color Brilliance Demi- Clear Shine

DIY face mask (1/2 lemon & Honey) mix very well before applying to face. *Make sure there are NO IRRITATION ON THE FACEprior to using*

Laneige Lip Sleeping mask

Clinique moisture surge overnight masque

 

Ion Color Brilliance Demi- Clear Shine-After mixing them and putting the product into my hair I kept it for 45 minutes and washed it out. My hair smelled amazing, I felt it extremely soft and it was shiny. This was my first time trying this at home and it was such a cool experience didn’t damage my hair at all.


DIY face mask-It was such a neat experience to try I loved how it did help brighten and soften my skin afterward. Will try with sugar next time to get a nice exfoliating mask done.

Laneige Lip Sleeping mask-One of my favorite lip products still am using it and enjoy its benefits.  

Clinique moisture surge overnight masque- I have seen this overnight mask all over from Macy’s and even on Sephora I decided to purchase it and give it a try. I love how soft and supple your skin feels.

 

This mask Monday did come a day late I truly apologies between getting over a cold and also planning my son’s first birthday I have not had the time to post. But I am back 🙂 until next time.

As always thank you for stopping by see you in my next blog post.

Hello to all:) and welcome back to another Mask MondayI hope you all had a wonderful weekend enjoying the weather. This past week I finally managed to do my dye my hair just in time for upcoming birthdays and summer.

This week for my face I wanted to continue with hydration but also wanted to lightly remove impurities as well. I have been using makeup here and there and it’s been hot and humid sweat also happens and I want to prevent clogged pores. So, for this week I tried two different masks :).

For my hair this week I am still battling taming frizz since there has been a lot of humidity still (lots of rain in New York this past week). And now that my hair is color treated again some dryness has happened. I have decided to continue moisturizing mask but also dealing with color treated hair.

For my lips, I wanted to try a new hydrating and moisturizing lip mask.

Masks I used this Monday:                                                                                                        

 Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Ultimate Moisture Protein Complex Intensely hydrating mask.

Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask

WATERMELON Energizing Marshmallow Peel off

Oh K! Cherry Gel Lip mask

My final thoughts:

Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Ultimate Moisture Protein Complex Intensely Hydrating Masque- I love this mask it’s always been a favorite of mine and goes well when I dye my hair and need that extra moisture and hydration. As we all know using a hair developer for dying hair is a damaging process regardless if there is no ammonia, therefore, it’s important to hydrate your hair after dying it or color treating it.

 

Pixi T-Zone Peel Off Mask: This Mask is a great product to remove excess oil and dirt from your skin. It is pain-free and easy to use. The results leave your skin refreshed and glowing! I love using this I began trying it without expecting much since I thought I didn’t have a trouble area in my T-zone, yet I was wrong it removed everything. Lovely color too and smells pleasant.

WATERMELON Energizing Marshmallow Peel Off Mask- I love this product. It goes on my skin very smooth and light. It also smells good! This peel off mask came out smoothly and I didn’t break out smells great as well.

Oh K! Cherry Gel Lip mask: This lip mask was fun to try. It was very hydrating and smelled nice. I did pop it in the fridge a few minutes before using.

 

As always, I thank you for stopping by. Until next time!

 Have a great week.
