Wishfully Waiting

First, allow me to properly thank Dan AragĂłn for making this photo available for free on @unsplash. It captures my current mood so well as I listen to LoFi Hip Hop radio via Youtube at the moment.

Now I can begin my update from my post last month.

My documents for the teaching internship program that I applied for were, in fact, received by the GA consulate. All is not lost but instead completed. At least on my end 🙂

I have completed my initial and final interviews for the internship, and am now waiting to hear back from the head office overseas in regards to whether or not I was accepted. On or before June 1st I should know the outcome. How am I keeping myself busy until then?

  • Catching up on my blogs.
  • Working as many hours as I can at both of my jobs.
  • Spending time with my friends.
  • Going to the beach.
  • Creating a new vlog playlist on my YouTube channel.

The light at the end of the tunnel can almost be seen! I just hope it leads me to the sunny, magical, and beautiful side where my hopes and dreams can take flight.

As always, be inspired and stay inspiring musings!

Make Up Noob to Beauty Bakerie Bombshell?!

 

Hello there musings!

In midst of preparing to continue my wanderlust adventures, I have been sprinkled with fairy dust by a lovely makeup fairy!

Though…I do not know much when it comes to makeup. I am a total noob to the makeup world, in fact.

No matter how many Jackie Aina videos that I watch, I can not seem to master the art of ‘serving face’. The most recent video that I did watch from Auntie Jackie was a foundation review on the makeup line by Beauty Bakerie. Which is what inspired me to come up with another topic for my soon-to-be revived YouTube channel – Make Up Noob to Beauty Bombshell!

The title is still a bit of a work in progress, as I have only purchased a few items from their site, but the challenge that I have set for myself is now out there in the universe. Now is the time for me to work more on my visuals, and the first step to that is to recognize that I (sigh! lol) am a brand. And it is now time for me to work on presenting my brand as best as I can, so learning about makeup with an affordable, fun, and polished line such as Beauty Bakerie I believe is the way to go.

Expect a super short yet sweet video from me about this line in the next few weeks musings! In the mean time, if you would like to check out their site and you happen to see a few things that you would like, click here for free shipping on your order!

Until then, be inspired and stay inspiring!

Wanderlust and Beyond!

Heya Musings!

It has been a little over a month since I have arrived back to the States. While I’m here, I have trying to collect as much coin as possible to travel again. Yes, the wanderlust is real!

I miss traveling. So much so that I am looking into becoming a full time wanderluster.

And I can hear all of you now, “Well, aren’t you already working on becoming an author?” or “I thought that you were working on teaching now?” All of which are true. Though now, I see no reason why I can not add one more title to the list.

Personally speaking, I am not too hung up on titles to begin with anyway 🙂

Now that I have spent almost a year traveling, teaching, and building my name in the indie author world, I know that I can do this!

And that is why I am posting this entry. I want this to serve as a timestamp for me to ‘stamp out’ the last remaining negative thoughts that I have about taking on this new adventure. This is where I say, ‘So long sucker!’ to those last pesky dream crushing thoughts and ‘Hello beautiful!’ to every dream I have of me in a place I had only ever read about or saw online.

The real question now is: How do I go about letting the rest of the world know about my new permanent ‘wanderlust’ status?

Yes, this post is a step in the right direction, but what else can I do? How should a rebrand my social medias for Soprano Musings? Goodness knows that my YouTube and Facebook would welcome the change – lol

My most important question is: How do I incorporate my love of music (even as a Music Major dropout), my new found passion for teaching (and learning as a student of life along the way), with my wanderlust pursuits? Surprisingly, the name that I chose when I started my journey still fits – Soprano Musings is definitely here to stay 🙂

Though what about the rest? Now this is where I call upon all of you!

If you have any suggestions on how to make my presence known as a newbie travel blog (on a budge), where can I go to buy the equipment needed to share my travels on social media, what blogs should I visit for a few tips, or if you have a few places in mind that I should visit – let me know in the comments. I would love to hear from you, and I promise to check in soon with an update!

As always, be inspired and stay inspiring!
