Personal.

This wasn’t something I was going to share at first, because it’s what I call highly classified information. But I want to be transparent on this blog; I can continue to be happy and cheery on my blog, but yesterday that wasn’t me, so since I wasn’t feeling myself I didn’t want to blog. After sleeping on it, I realized that I can’t abandon my blog when I’m feeling sad, basically defeats the purpose of blogging right? Continue reading “Personal.”

My FAVORITE face products!

I’m definitely not the type to share like the products I use, maybe because I’m very basic! (Does that sound bad?) But my skin, oof, its been bad the past few months. I’ve been drinking so much caffeine and eating like more cheeseburgers than any person should ever consume. But I’ve got to get back on the wagon like right now, I have the Bronx Zoo 5k in like two months and I’m woefully not prepared! So I’ve cut caffeine almost completely out, besides my morning cup of coffee. (I’m a New Yorker, I don’t run well without coffee.) I’ve been drinking water and a morning protein shake that I’ve been taking with me in the mornings, whether it’s work or just out running errands.

But water is just the start to great skin as well all know. I’ve noticed over the past year my skin has been very dry and flakey. Meaning the moisturizer I was using just wasn’t doing the trick to keep my skin supple. And it was much worse in the winter, so being the good daughter that I am, I actually took my mother’s advice who’s always had great skin. I went paraban free, all organic for the skin care regime.

 

Now these aren’t everything I use when it comes to my skin. These are just a few that I just picked up this week and I already need to rave about.

PEARLESSENCE: I’ve actually been hearing quite a bit about Rose Water; my mom interjected that she used to use it when I was younger, and it’s back! Thank god, cause I love this stuff so much. It has a very refreshing feeling when I spritz that wonderful stuff onto my face. I put it on after my face cleanser and before my moisturizer. But I also throw it in my bag and will spritz it on actually over my makeup if I need some hydration. (Keep at a distance just in case). 🙂 But I grabbed this bottle of awesome at TJ Maxx. And it has made its way into my daily routine.

ALBA: First and foremost, I use basically the entire line! I use the Alba Pineapple Enzyme moisturizer along with the exfoliator But I recently came across these two items while bumming around TJ Maxx (Can you see that I have a problem?) I’ve been using the Pineapple Enzyme 3 in 1 towelettes since early winter and I love them cause they’re a cleanser and toner along with a makeup remover and I am all about what’s fast and easy to take my makeup off before bed cause I have been terrible about that at times. So when I saw this duo, let’s just say I spent a lot of money that day. The Volcanic Clay detox towelettes are an interesting experience to say the least and I love it! It makes my face seem so refreshed after using them.

The mask with the same Volcanic Clay in it was a fun experience that I actually tried for the first time this morning. Be prepared, it is a full mask; so when I walked out of the bathroom this morning with my black mask on; well my fiancée couldn’t keep the laughter in. He was like well, that’s nice! We laughed about it together! I left this mask on for 15 minutes, the smell when taking it off was a little off-putting for some reason. But the way my skin glowed after this mask makes the smell definitely worth it. The serum that remains on your face after taking off the mask can simply be rubbed into your skin after you remove the mask. And let me tell you, my skin is so unbelievably soft and glowing. My skin hasn’t been this great since I don’t know when.

I will be honest, I’ve been pretty terrible to my skin at times. Thinking it would be fine, if I didn’t use moisturizer, or didn’t take my makeup off before bed. So it takes a lot to maintain my skin right now. But I’m finally in a routine where I feel like my skin will finally be given the opportunity to bounce back.

I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Friends.

I didn’t think I would ever say this honestly, but damn it’s hard to make friends in 2017..

I mean, I’ll be honest; I’m a really good friend. I’ll listen to your problems nonstop with no judgement. If something happens, I’m there no matter what. But every time I think I have a really good friend that I can share things with; I always become everyone’s second friend. The one they choose to be more prevalent in their life is the one who has done horrible things to them and create constant drama and yet, they are the ones they go to for in their time of need and even though I have the background of being the one stable relationship that they have… and I get pushed away like the plague. Why?

I’m currently trying to branch out; meet new people. And when those friends are in a drama filled situation; the stable friend that they need desperately in that moment will not be there to pick up the pieces.

I may be young, but I’m too damn old to be constantly involved in high school drama. I need stable friendships that I can rely on in my own time of need.

They weren’t lying when they said good friends are hard to find.

I think they are playing a really good game of hide and seek and I’m just a terrible seeker. This is a cruel, cruel game world and I demand you send me some real friends right this second.

 

Why are you blogging?

Okay, I will admit that I did look up how to gain more followers on WordPress specifically. Call me a newbie, that’s fine. I run a blog on Tumblr, and it has taken me a very long time to gain a decent amount of followers; but I believe there’s a huge difference between Tumblr and WordPress. Two different beasts I guess.

But I loved what one fellow blogger said, the big question you need to ask yourself before you begin the blogging process is, “Why are you blogging?”

I barely touched base on this topic when I introduced myself to you.

To be honest, I’m lost. I do so much to show the world that I got my shit together. But as many before me have said; social media doesn’t necessarily feel the void that some of us feel. We are so obsessed with updating statues, snapchatting, insta-stories, etc. and we forget to like actually enjoy the moment that we are documenting.

So I desperately want to find somewhere I can come and just be me. Yes, I’m still on social media; but here I can be me instead of the fake façade that I have created within my own existence.

I do want followers, cause I want to reach others around me who may feel the same way I do; but if I only have 5 or 500. I’ll continue to write and share my stories and feelings and my makeup and clothing fails. Cause all I am looking for is somewhere to be who I always wanted to be and maybe felt restricted.

That’s why I am here. Feel free to comment and tell me why you are here and blogging.

xoxo,

Sarah

 

 

 

Post Valentine’s Day

 

I’m having a moment at Starbucks; starting this post off well because they accidentally processed my Starbucks on my debit card instead of reloading the 10.00 on my gold card, and charging me the 7.68  on my card for the full amount of my transaction. She felt bad and voided my first transaction, and gave me coffee at 5.03 for free. I was like score! Free Starbucks Coffee, I’ll take that. Damn, I should of ordered a Venti!

 

 

I said that I wanted to create a non-sense blog, I have no interest in commenting on politics, or religion. Not that I don’t care about those things, because I do. But I want this blog to be a place where you can come to get away from that. With the current situation in the world; there’s not a place anymore that you can go to escape it; it’s everywhere!

 

 

So let’s start with a post I probably should of posted two days ago, when it was actually Valentine’s Day. But I was working and doing laundry before work, because that’s what I do for fun…I will mention that I am not yet married or having children; so that signals how lame my life is already when clean clothes are the highlight of my day. 🙂

 

 

My fiancée and I are unconventional when it comes to Valentines Day. He doesn’t like sweets (I am not that person), so he asked for Hershey’s Treasures, now I haven’t heard of these, so I was like oh the Hershey’s Pot of Gold. I was surprised that he would request that, but I bought those and a 6-pack of his favorite beer, Blue Moon. Yes, I’m cheap; but I know my man will be happy. And that’s all that matters. But when he buys me gifts, he remembers everything I have ever mentioned in the past 8 years. So I’m constantly surprised. He surprised with me a cute laptop case, 1 lb of M&Ms, and a cute card with probably the most emotional note he’s ever written in the 8 years we’ve been together. I had to hide in my office so he didn’t know that I actually cried, I ugly cry like Kim Kardashian; not cute!

 

 

Followed by some sex on a holiday! We never do the whole it’s a holiday, let’s have sex. We rarely have sex on each other’s birthdays. But any other day, we’re DOWN!

 

We constantly have to be thinking of it; and make sure that it hasn’t been too long cause like most couples we are so busy in our day to day routine that we are like oh crap it’s been like a month and we play catch up for the next two weeks. 🙂

 

 

If that last paragraph bothered you, please excuse yourself from my blog and there’s no point in returning, I’m an open book and I won’t shy away from subjects like sex, money and other unmentionables. But I can promise that I will stay out of religion, politics and those touchy subjects cause I just can’t even.

 

 

I can’t wait to kick start this blog, even if I don’t get a lot of followers; this is a place where I can blow off some steam with my free Starbucks Coffee. 🙂

HELLO!!

Welcome to Edgy and Urban. I’m Sarah, the curator you could say.

I’m a millennial who is trying to navigate this strange world we live in. I began this site because I’m in a rut in my life. I’m a huge advocate for writing for therapeutic reasons, typing is just so much faster.

All of my friends and friends who constantly see me writing always tell me I need to write a book; I may take their advice one day, but I figured I would give this a try to see how I do.

I want this blog to be a party of refuge, somewhere where everyone can come and read fun blog posts about anything and everything after a stressful day at work or a crappy blind date; truly anything.

I’ve been in such for that particular type of blog for about a month or so and haven’t been able to find anything to satisfy my need to non sense blogs that make me not feel so bad about all of the crap that happens in my personal life.

I will be open to you guys about my life. It’s truly a shit show, no doubt.

I want to share with you any trends I run across, what doesn’t work and what does. Videos about my life, nature, my upcoming nuptials, and how terrified I am to get married. 🙂

Put on your seatbelts, it’s going to be a wild ride. 🙂

xoxo,

Sarah
