Ditching Self Sabotage to Fully Love Life with Veronica Cisneros

 

Today’s episode is a conversation with Veronica Cisneros.

Veronica Cisneros is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, motivational speaker, and queen hostess of transformational women’s retreats. Through these retreats, Veronica helps women answer the question: “how did I lose me?” She lovingly calls out insecurities and doubts and teaches women to challenge them for what they are, a mythical assault to their true femininity.

When it comes to stepping outside of your comfort zone, Veronica is your best bet. Yet, she ensures that, by stepping out, women are able to experience true transformational change; uncovering the inner goddess and, let’s be honest, bad ass, they’ve always been. Veronica helps women truly become empowered and unapologetic’ through unique challenges and personalized coaching.

It comes as no surprise, then, that Veronica is also CEO (a.k.a queen hustler) of Empowered and Unapologetic; a hardcore ‘girl gang’ of women aggressively supporting each other on Facebook. Her focus is to continue to expand this community, filled with authentic women who know their worth and who are unapologetic about putting themselves first. Veronica’s true aspiration is to help multitudes of women learn how to let go of perfectionism and, instead, face their emotional wounds and insecurities.

I am partnering with Woosh Beauty this month as a sponsor for the podcast and was truthfully hesitant when they reached out. I’m not a beauty blogger, I don’t really know what I am doing when it comes to makeup and I wasn’t sure it would be a great fit for my community.
I am glad I went with my gut and decided to move forward with working with them because as soon as I was able to try their products, I knew it was going to be a great fit!

This post was a paid campaign with Woosh Beauty but the thoughts and opinions expressed are directly my own.

Everyday Make Up for Busy Moms

 

One of the reasons I don’t focus too much on make up is because it can be hard to take care of myself as a busy mom. I don’t have a lot of time to get ready, I don’t want to spend a ton of money on makeup, and it’s hard to even get to the store to figure out which makeup I should be using.

 

But makeup can be such a great form of self care for busy moms. I know that we need an everyday face that will boost our confidence and let us conquer whatever life throws at us – and I found Woosh Beauty to be exactly that!

Woosh Beauty Review

 

Woosh sent me an incredible package including their signature Fold Out Face, accessories, lip glosses and more! Honestly, I was a bit intimidated when I first opened the package because I didn’t want to let them down since I had no idea how to use most of it!

 

I was in luck! Their makeup is perfect for moms who want everything in one place AND moms who have no clue exactly what to do with make up.

 

Maybe you’ve seen videos where people use contour and know it’s a think you might need to do but have NO clue where it’s supposed to go. Maybe you know that you need a setting powder or something to conceal your dark circles but don’t know how to pick a shade. Or maybe you stand in the makeup aisle with dozens of makeup brushes and have no clue how to pick which one to use where.

 

If that sounds like you (because it definitely sounded like me) you’re in luck!

 

Using Woosh Beauty felt like using a grown up version of color by number. The instructions were so simple and contained great images telling me which product to use with which brush and where to put it. Everything was labeled and easy to figure out and I had so much fun using it!

Watch to see the inside of the instructions!

 

I also loved that their makeup was good for my skin. Since using it I truly feel like my skin has started to clear up from some hormonal acne I’ve been dealing with!

* NO: Parabens, Sulfates, Gluten, Fragrance.

* Cruelty Free & Dermatologist-Tested

*Mineral based makeup

*Made from environmentally friendly paperboard instead of plastic or glass.

Woosh Beauty Fold Out Face

 

What I loved the most out of all their products was the fold out face. I just told them what color my skin was (according to the matcher on their site) and boom – they sent me a perfect palette with everything in one place that worked for my complexion!

 

What’s cool about the Fold Out Face? 
  • This palette has everything you need for a full face of makeup: 4 eye shadows, 2 concealers, 2 contour powders, 2 blushes, 2 foundation powders, 1 highlighter and a 4-in-1 brush set.
  • All you have to do is pick your shade – that’s it!
  • Comes in shades for all skin tones
  • The makeup is mineral based, fragrance free, has amazing coverage and not tested on animals.
  • It’s makeup for busy people!  It’s makeup for people who want amazing makeup without the hassle of sorting through a cluttered makeup bag every day! It’s makeup for professionals and novices alike!

 

 

 

 

 

What comes in the fold out face? 

13 full sized cosmetics in one convenient palette, including:

4 eyeshadows

2 Concealers & Perfectors (no need for liquid foundation!)

2 Contours (light and dark)

2 Blush shades to mix/match

A shimmer

2 blenders as finishing step

4-in-1 secret brush  has numbered brush heads which correspond to the numbers on the palette of the product which they apply for a “paint by numbers” simplicity.  Easy to follow

instructions simply guide through the 5 steps for a complete look.  Can not make a mistake!

Comes in 6 shades that cover all skin tones:

Shade 1 – Light

Shade 2 – Medium Light

Shade 2.5 – Medium Tan

Shade 3 – Medium

Shade 4 – Medium Deep

Shade 5 – Deep

 

I also loved that it was ONE thing! My kids love to play with my makeup and now I have just one thing to hide from them, one thing to toss in my bag when I travel and one thing to worry about! It was made for moms like you and me!

 

 

Woosh Beauty Discount Code

 

And because you know I love a good deal, I was able to partner with Woosh to get a 25% discount off the ENTIRE order! This makeup is really affordable without the discount and that extra percentage is a great bonus! Use the promo code PURPOSE25 at checkout for 25% off!

How to Practice Self-Care as a Busy Mom

 

 

We all experience stress sometime in our lives. Whether you’re worried about excelling in your career, reaching a certain fitness goal, or making sure the kids get their homework done, stress can come into our lives in many different ways.

 

 

One budget-friendly and easy way to manage stress is by practicing self-care. In recent years, we’ve increasingly heard about how important self-care is, but what exactly does “self-care” mean and look like to people? Some people think luxurious spa trips, a massage or a new outfit fall under self-care — but those activities can add up quickly, and may even cause a financial burden.

 

 

 

 

Self-care isn’t just treating yourself to expensive experiences and things. It’s any conscious action you take to support your mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. That could be as simple as taking a break during your busy day to mediate or even canceling plans to stay in, relax and regroup.

 

 

To help, Mint has gathered some easy self-care activities you can incorporate into your day to day on any budget. Try a few of these activities when you’re feeling stressed, anxious or just need a mental break. After practicing one or even a few of these activities, you might find yourself having a more productive day, increased mental clarity and and best of all, reduced stress.

Looking for a best list of book for self care? Look no further!

 

I am a self proclaimed self care junkie. I stopped feeling guilty about taking time for me and instead decided that spending time learning & growing will help me become a better me!

 

As a busy mom of 3, I fit self care in the pockets of my day but I make sure that, no matter what, I do something. Reading is one of my favorite past times and I’m always in between 3-5 books at a time. I read in small chunks throughout the day and always have a book on my phone ready to read while we wait at school pick up or the doctors.
