For those of you who are new here – my name is Mary and I am the founder of The Candid Millennial. I’m SO excited to have you here and talk ALL things millennial!
Before we get started – I just wanted to make a quick comment on the outfit featured in this post. I am L O V I N G this wide leg pant trend this season. This pair of LEITH pants is SO cute and comes in SO many beautiful colors. Plus, they’re under $100!
Like you and many of my readers, I fill my life with all the things: career, side hustle (blog), charity, family and so much more. My biggest motivator is personal growth and career growth, all while trying to find “balance” in my life.
The title of this post might not be the most classy, politically correct, or even appealing to some women – but I can’t help and be completely candid on the types of Google searches I’ve found myself get lost in over the years.
I know, I know, some of you might be thinking “could this post be any more narcissistic?!” I mean yeah, it could be, but who doesn’t want to put their best foot forward and present the world with the best image of themselves?!
If you don’t care, that’s totally cool. Let’s catch up on the next post. But today I wanted to share all the selfie-taking secrets I’ve collected over the years and what I’ve narrowed down to what I call “selfie essentials”.
Is there a burden that has been placed on your heart that you aren’t sure what to do about? Is there something that has been on your mind that you can’t help but keep going back to? Is there something you have your eye on that you really want?
The biggest gift we are given in this life is time. Sadly, time is the first thing to go. As you’re reading this, you have lost a minute but perhaps gained insight. My philosophy with anything in life is to just go for it.
For my motivated millennials out there – today I wanted to talk about some different ways I’ve been able to leverage my knowledge, talent and skills to make more money and essentially more than triple my income in the past four years.
You might not realize it, but often times there are opportunities every single day that we come across to increase our income. We can choose to ignore these opportunities, or jump right on them! More often than not, we also fail to recognize that most opportunities are created by us!
It’s 77 degrees in Dallas right now, and it has me feeling some type of way!! I’m SO ready for fall and ready to be able to comfortably hang out outdoors again. Preferably on a patio, with wine. Very specific, I know!
Eyelash extensions are ALL the rage lately. Women of all ages have become more aware of the different lash options available as their popularity has grown tremendously over the past few years!
I believe in working with a professional who can make recommendations based on your individual needs. Shannon Amin is an eyelash stylist and did an excellent job at educating me on eyelash extensions. She even let me try them out myself!
Hey ya’ll! So I’ve been getting tons of questions lately about my hair and what I use to style it. I recently purchased the last pieces needed to complete the perfect blowout (shoutout to DRYBAR!) and I am now ready to share my process via YouTube.
Setting unrealistic fitness goals is what I do best (am I the only one?!) I have come to the realization that setting a goal of working out 5-7 days a week every single week for the rest of the year is unreasonable. At least, for me it is.
Work, volunteering, blogging, side gigging, working out, singing + all while maintaining a social life is quite the plate full. #millennialproblems
However…what wecan do is challenge ourselves for a (shorter) amount of time to help jump-start our year with healthier habits!
Starting this Sunday, I’m asking ALL girl bosses who are excited about the new year and who want to give their body a good kick in the rear to join me in The Candid Millennial 10 Day Challenge!
There’s nothing better than getting brand new makeup as a gift! It’s such a fun surprise, from the packaging, to the beautiful design of the product, to applying it and seeing what it looks like when you put it on your skin!
Whether you’re looking for something for your best friend, sister, mom or aunt, adding one or two of your favorite makeup items or brands to your gift is simply thoughtful and fun.
I’ve rounded up a few of my must-have beauty items that I use every single day to help get you started on the best gifts for your babes!
