Why You Should Have an “I Love Me” Day

Last Saturday I had an “I love me day”. I spent the whole day by myself. I did little things that made me happy and it was nice getting to do that by myself. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love spending all of my time with my boyfriend and I love having girls days with friends. 

But sometimes, you just need a ‘me’ day… a day where you can pick the restaurant you eat at, the movie you watch, the stores you shop at, etc. 

I think spending time alone and having an “I love me day” is so important for your health and spirit. I think it’s important for our own self care. I think it’s necessary in order to stay sane!
I remember having friends who used to say “I can’t go to a restaurant and sit and eat alone! I don’t have the guts or courage to do it.” 

I think we live in a society where if we aren’t glued to one another in person or on social media, there’s something wrong with us… and that is just not true! 

Sometimes the only way for is to think clearly is if we unplug and unglue ourselves from our phones and others for a day! 

Here’s what I did on my “I love me” day! 

1. Went to one of my favorite coffee shops


I used to loooove to go to coffee shops all the time when I was in college to do homework or write. Since college, I haven’t really had much quiet alone time at a coffee shop, so lady Saturday I ordered myself one of my favorite drinks (iced vanilla latte) and just spent time reading and enjoying my time. 

2. Shopped at my favorite stores

I took my time and browsed around in every aisle at some of my favorite stores (Ulta Beauty and Dollar Tree). I treated myself to a few items and I splurged on an item I’ve been dying to get! 

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Eyeshadows


(My review on this item will be up soon and I’m soooo excited to try it out!!) 

3. Had lunch at one of my favorite places


I had a delicious lunch at Vinaigrette! I love this restaurant because they have awesome food and healthy choices! They also only have sea salt on their tables and I love that! I don’t come here often because my boyfriend thinks it’s “too hipster and weird” lol so we usually go to a place where he can get more manly food (like a rare steak) 

4. Took a nap! 

I won’t post a picture of me sleeping but I loooove taking afternoon naps on the weekend and thats what I did! 

All in all it was a good day and I highly recommend everyone to take a day where they do what they want and go to the places and stores that they want to go! 

Take your time shopping, read a good book, relax and try not to rush through your day! 

What are your favorite places to eat or shop at? What coffee shop do you go to and what kind of drink do you get? I’d love to know about what you do on your “I love me days” 

Thanks for reading y’all! 

Blessings,

My Love Poem to Jesus 

What a splendid  thing, that Jesus died to set me free. 

Such a high price he paid, all to have my death fade.

Even after all of my mistakes and flaws, he still offered me mercy and grace and loved me through it all. 

I will never understand or see, how such a beautiful king can love someone as ugly as me. 

Shame and death is what I deserve, but it was Jesus who came and took all the hurt. 

He was beaten, scorned and mocked… and through it all, his love for me never stopped. 


The nails in his hands, the crown of thorns, such pain and agony… I can’t believe he did it for someone like me. 

What a way He made, so that I could know him.. a perfect and flawless King, who wants to spend eternity with me. 

Thank you Jesus, for your love an grace. My life and heart is forever changed. 

My thankfulness and love for you will never be expressed enough, thank you Jesus for being my one true love. 

You died and rose from the grave. You broke every chain. 

I’m free, I’m made new, my heart is filled with true joy, and it’s all because of you. 

I will live my life to serve and glorify you. Jesus, my life will never be the same, and because of that, I’ll forever praise Your Name. 


With Love, 

Olivia❤️

Treat Yo Self Tuesday: Fiona Stiles Matte Foundation 

Happy #TreatYoSelfTuesday !🎉 

My current obsession and new found favorite makeup product is the Fiona Stiles Matte Finish Foundation Concentrate

And guys, when I say that I’m obsessed, I’m literally OBSESSED. 

[Before I continue to rave about this product, I’ll have you know that this post is no way sponsored and there are not any affiliate links or codes included here! I genuinely love this brand and this product and I wish I could be sponsored by this lovely brand.]

I first heard about this brand and foundation from my esthetician. I have acne prone skin and I’m always fighting more than a few breakouts on my face. I also have oily skin and a lot of acne scars(red marks and indentation scars) .

So basically, I have really flawed skin… in order for me to do the best for my skin, I need foundation that’s paraben free and free of all of those crazy pore cloggers that are in so many cosmetic products.

I try not to cake on my foundation because I know how horrible that is for your pores and skin. And I also know that the less makeup I wear and the more I let my skin breathe, the better. (Less is more 😉) 

There are just many days though where I feel so insecure about my breakouts and my scars, that I like to wear foundation. It helps to boost my confidence, I feel a little better with it on, and I love putting it on. 


Here’s What I LOVE about this foundation: 

  • It is so light weight! It does not feel cakey or thick at all. 
  • It offers the perfect amount of coverage- medium to full. 
  • It gives you the perfect matte finish… it’s never dry looking. 
  • It STAYS Matte.. all day long
  • It blends effortlessly with a brush or Beauty blender. 
  • The packaging is high quality, it comes with a pump, and it’s all around packaged beautifully. 
  • It does not contain any parabens or pore cloggers. 
  • It gives you a very beautiful finish and looks natural (while still being full coverage) 

I’ve been currently applying this foundation with a beauty blender, but I also will use the Wet n’ Wild Flat Top Brush (and if you haven’t tried these new Wet n’ Wild brushes yet, you need to!) 


It is currently 21 Days of beauty At Ulta and I discovered this product is HALF OFF! So of course I bought four of these. [ha ha] (I also bought their concealer which I have been LOVING as well.) 

Before this foundation, I used to use the Bare Minerals Original Foundation. I love that foundation because it only has FIVE ingredients in it and it’s insanely good for your skin. BUT, I’m an oily mess, and there’s no way to make that foundation Matte… I look like a shiny disco ball two hours after I put it on… that’s only because of how oily my skin has become. It’s still an amazing foundation.


So I finally retired my beloved Bare Minerals and will use the Maybeline Fit Me Matte from time to time. But Fiona Stiles Foundation is my new ride or die. 
So like I said, if you’re looking for a new foundation that’s light weight, full coverage, good for your skin, and gives you a beautiful finish, you might want to try Fiona Stiles Beauty. 


I highly recommend it 😉 

What is your current ride or die Foundation and why? 🙂 


With Love,

Olivia 💜
