7 Days #Photography challenge 


What’s something special you see daily, but never paid attention long enough to really appreciate what you’re looking at? In this case, it’s not my husband. It’s myself 🙂 I’ve lived a life that I know many people wouldn’t survive it. I know half would give up at the beginning. The other half would maybe try and last half way. I’m sure there are many and many women’s out there that has suffered or is suffering all or worst than I have. I pray to God to give you strength. It’s not easy. I know!

My mother today at 68 still has to work to take care of herself otherwise she doesn’t have the income to live on.

She has 2 daughters that can’t afford to pay for her living. Sad story.

She has worked so hard her whole life ever since she was little and for what? Today she is still working and not living.  That’s why I always say live now if you can. This time will never come around again.

Today’s picture inspired me because I’ve been a fighter.

  • I’ve fought child abuse.
  • I’ve fought mentally  and verbally abuse
  • I’ve fought my fears
  • I’ve fought self-esteem
  • I’ve fought depression
  • I’ve fought suicide
  • I’ve fought PTSD
  • I fought drugs
  • I fought alcohol
  • I fought an alcoholic father
  • I fought murder
  • I’ve fought adultery
  • I’ve fought unfaithfulness
  • I’ve fought being sick
  • I’ve been fighting my weight
  • I’ve been fighting my sickness
  • I’ve been fighting this world

This world will not bring us better things, from here on it will only be worst. Some of these things I’m still fighting daily like PTSD. Depression. Etc. Some stuff you can never get rid of it. It’s a constant battle.

Doing My Before and After the Right Way #fblogger

Makeup By Elly 4Guys_1Girl

Everyone that knows me knows I love makeup and fashion. Clothes, shoes, bags, and makeup are my favorites. Now you ask me you must have a lot of it then? Actually no… I have plenty, but it’s never enough. I have enough bags, some I haven’t even used yet. Shoes I don’t have many I do need to buy some cute ones, but it’s hard to find the perfect fit comfortable and that looks good. I love the looks of many brands, but they just don’t look good on my feet I don’t know why.
Clothes I’m just starting to build up my wardrobe as I’m losing weight, I didn’t want to start buying all these outfit being 50 pounds overweight, but now that I lost some I started to.


@4Guys_1Girl

MakeUp I don’t buy anything too expensive Unless I really like it and it’s worth me paying that amount of money for it. Otherwise, I buy cheap makeup and I get the same results.
A lot of people doubted that I could do a cute makeup on a budget so I proved them wrong. I got makeup from CVS pharmacy, and my brushes are from BHcosmetic and I did a before and after picture and this is my results.

I wanted an opinion to see what you all think? I think it came out nice. The first photo I used bronzer and the last one I didn’t. Personally now I will never leave the house without some bronzer I love it.

Me at age 7

Let’s do a little Challenge here today… Posting a throw back Thursday Before and Now  photo Challenge.
Who’s in? 🙂 Come on let’s do this… hehehe
I received some of my old childhood photos from my mother when she went to our home town ” Brazil ” to visit, and when she came back with all these beauty 😮 I had big surprises to see all my modeling days hahahahahaha

I really don’t know what she was thinking LOL I would have left these photos hidden hahahah.

I still like to believe I have some type of Fashion in me … didn’t I ? What do you think?

The memories I have left from those days in another hand is something I hate to remember. Lets not even go there.
Anyways, This photo above was taken at one of our homes in Rio De Janeiro Brazil.

I think what was in my mind was ” Hey look at me I’m beautiful ” LOL
I love looking at old photos just as long as they don’t have my big head in them ..

Today This is who I am a simple lady. I love to shop and get dressed and look my best no doubt about that.
I absolutely love make-up and fashion. Even though I don’t dress myself the best I can, I can still coordinate very well 🙂
The only reason I don’t do it to myself is because I haven’t reached my weight goal 🙂
Feeling confident plays a big role in being a fashionista. I can dress other people, design, and put awesome outfits together. But when it comes to myself I chicken out and dress simple usually dark colors. I do go wild on my makeups though. I picked a few for you to take a look. Thanks for taking the time and hey, Share with me what you think xoxo

Fascinating Shoes Under $40

Untitled

I had to go see my mother on an emergency bases and ended up being gifted with three pairs of shoes that I’m in love with. 
It’s still so cold here in MA so I asked for a pair of tan boots since I don’t have one because mine was too old. I got these for less than $25  the actual cost was  $24.50  it’s from #TopModa I don’t really care about brands as long as what I have on is comfortable, fits good, and looks as cute as these boots do. Don’t you think they are cute? I think they are adorable. 

I also got these two sandals for $7.00 each. I was in shock. These are super cute. I love the style, the color, how they fit, and how comfortable they are on my feet. 
Every time I have to buy sandals that are these style I always have to get either a size bigger or a 1/2 size bigger because it doesn’t fit good and it’s always too tight and uncomfortable. I got one similar to the black one at Kohl’s before for $36 and I had to get a size 8 1/2 when my size is 7 1/2 because it would fit right. These TOPMODA fits awesome.
Now the store I got them at only God knows LOL. I can’t remember the name. 😦  But you can find them on Amazon.com they have them there for a good price as well. 🙂 
Sorry, all I know is that it’s in St. Petersburg Florida and they have a huge selection of shoes for a very affordable price. 🙂

That’s why I love the sunshine state and I wish I lived there.
My dream one day will come true, not only because I can buy shoes, but because I know I would have a better life.

Getting Dressed with @Nordstrom #fashion

This awesome looking dress is from Nordstrom and When they had them for sale the price was around $200-210 I actually bought it for a great deal. I got mine for only $79 and it was perfect. It fit just right and it made me feel so pretty 🙂 I was in love with it. I used it to a friends wedding. The only problem I had with it was at the breast it was too big and at last minute I had to improvise and tie the back with something so my boobs wouldn’t hang out lol. A lot of the people I know when I say I got my dress at Nordstrom they usually say

well I can’t afford anything there.

Well if you look for it they do have great deals and some awesome things going out of stock and big savings. So what if you will be the last one to use it for that season at least I had on a beautiful dress for a wedding that people thought I paid a lot of money for it and it only cost me $79 lol. It’s worth it. You all need to check out the sale and all the good deals at Nordstrom 😜
