Life really works in mysterious ways. I'm seeing things in a new perspective and I can't decide if it's good or bad. I've been doing very well as of late, got promoted, bought a new Lexus, business boomed with my photography, and I opened an online store so you can conveniently order every basic necessity and have it delivered to your door. So now I must question myself as to why this just doesn't seem to cut it. 

How can someone so young but so successful feel as if there has got to be more to life? This my friends is what my post is all about. 

I don't care if you live down the street from me or across the world, everyone at some point will feel this way. It's a catch 22, you think when you finally achieve the goals you've set you'll feel so amazing. That is, until you get there. Now you've set even higher goals because the ones you made before are already attained and it just goes on and on in a cycle. I am here to say I am ending this cycle. We as people need time to stop and really take in the things that happen in life. If we don't do this we lose gratitude and appreciation for the small things that really matter.

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Ferris Bueller. 

That being said, I am here to stop and look around. I can honestly say I am happy with life and focused on just myself for now :) I hope you guys can too!

Take a break, relax, drink a tea, do what you want to do instead of what you have to do for once. The only thing you have to do in life is die, the rest is up to you.

Light up lip gloss; my all time fave gloss!

Alright ladies, I am not usually the one to boast or chat about my fave lip gloss because to be honest I am not a huge lip gloss girl. I could never find one that wasn't either too sticky or made my lips dry and cracked. This however was a life changer! Truly amazing!

Artistry's light up lip gloss. 
As if it weren't enough that the lip gloss is amazing, glides on smoothly, stays on, and is not sticky. They topped it off my adding a mirror and small lights so you can apply this stuff anywhere!

Plus is comes in a variety of shades, and.....
drum roll please.........

Miss America Endorses it! Oh and Kathie Lee too :) 

Yes, you heard me right. Miss America herself and many contestants use and love this gloss! 

The bonus is you can get it from me :) Along with a lot more makeup!

The store has everything Walmart/Target has and more! From toilet paper, toothpaste, makeup, lotions, office supplies etc to my partner stores including Disney, Bass Pro Shops, Sears and many more! 

If anyone wants anything at all in the store I am offering 10% off, so let me know when your cart is ready and I will discount your items )

Would love it if you guys checked it out :)



Update - I miss you all dearly.

Hey guys :)

It's been awhile, too long I must say. 
I wanted to catch you all up on life, mine of course! I also hope to hear from all of you lovelies!

So, some is still the same :)
Same man, same house (although moving next month), same old job too but the good news is I got promoted! Things are going fairly well if I must admit but we can get down to the nitty gritty later on :)

As some of you know I am a wedding photographer, the season has already begun! I am swamped, but I have decided I want to take the time and really focus on blogging. I love having an outlet to vent on and not be judged :)

I opened my very own online store :)
I have to say it's pretty fabulous haha! Shipping all over North America as well 
If any of you want to check it out, its full of basic needs from toilet paper, body wash, lotions, toothpaste to dog food haha! Literally everything that Target and Walmart sell, I do too! The bonus is that I ship it right to your door :)
You ladies will love the makeup line, it's called Artistry! Similar to Estee Lauder in quality, and its an awesome product, I definitely abide by it now haha! 
This all being said, since I love you guys so much I would like to give you 15% off, so if you decide to check it out and fall in love with anything let me know before you check out and I will apply the discount :)

My trip to the ER.

Happy Hump Day!

Not too much to report today, just a sore little girl today haha!
A few weeks ago when I was MIA from the blogging world, I got really sick.
Cramps like no tomorrow focusing in on my right hip. It was horrible, I spent 2 days in the ER and they thought my appendix was going to burst. Thankfully it did not, I had to go through ultrasounds, CT scans, Pelvic exams, and all sorts of stuff. It was horrendous to say the least.I was bed ridden for 5 days, on percocets and Tylenol 3's ah awful! So how did things turn out? Well..... they couldn't figure it out. They're "best guess" is a uterine infection so that's what they treated me for (and pain) It all went away but now it sort of creeps up on me, just not as bad. I am hoping this ordeal is done with!

So as promised I will still be posting my workout from the previous night :)
Last night was arms! I also did some core/abs but had a tough time due to my side hurting...

Also! If anyone here has myfitnesspal add me! @mzjessicaxo



Work, Work, Work it out!

Good Morning my lovelies!

I hope you all got a good night's rest and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast this morning :)
It's chilly out here in Calgary this morning, the winter months seem to last longer and longer with each year that passes. This of course does not stop this girl from going to the gym!

Last night was legs night! Which of course means... my legs are sore today! It's a good feeling though (hard to explain to people that don't obsess at the gym haha) I can feel how great of a workout I had though and I love it! 

So what did I do last night.....

Here was my workout. It was grand! 
When you see "4x10 lunges passing 10lb weight through legs"... it means you walk across the gym while doing lunges (do not let your knee go past your toes) and while doing this you pass a weight between your legs. If your left leg is lunging, take the weight in your right hand, pass under your right leg and hold with your left hand. Switch legs and repeat! You will definitely feel this one, so ladies if you're looking to tone those thighs this is for you!

Happy Tuesday!
Eat Clean & Train Dirty
