Top Five Unique and Useful Beauty and Fashion Products that I Love This Year

Are you fond of sorting out your beauty and fashion products on a regular basis? As for me, I usually check what I have in my closet and maintain a regular inventory of the things that I own lately. There are things that should be replaced, kept and even donated to others.

Lately, I've documented my top 5 unique and useful beauty and fashion products that I love this 2018. Whether you're a perennial style lover or a new fashion follower, these fabulous items will surely inspire you.

1. Pink Sweater with Bell Shape Sleeves

One of my hobbies is to find unique fashion pieces in my favorite shopping stores and every time I travel. Lately, I had a thrift shopping spree with my husband. He found a really chic sweater and he immediately told me to buy it. This piece is usually mentioned in my YouTube Channel, Karen Lopez Vlog, so some of you may be familiar with this. He knows that I love pink and the item will surely attract my attention. So without even asking the price, I bought the item quickly. I'm afraid someone will buy it ahead of me.

2. Canvas Avenue Handcrafted Wooden Earrings

Many people love unique and handcrafted items that are created by talented individuals. If you're fond of unique fashion pieces, you can check Canvas Avenue since they have really stylish items for fashion lovers. Through their website, I found these gorgeous handcrafted wooden earrings. 

The Popsickle Earrings look extraordinary since it was created with timeless design in mind with the little details you can find it it. On the other hand, I can't let go of the Heart Earrings since it has pink shades in it. Luckily, they have enough stocks or else I will feel totally heartbroken to know it's hard to find it in their online store.

3. L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

Since I love fashion, wearing simple makeup comes with it. Nowadays, this L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation is really useful and unique since it matches with my skin tone. Every time I need a reliable foundation, this is the product that I usually use.  I've bought a lot of foundation products but this one is the best so far. Aside from that, this is really affordable for me.

4. White Handbag

Handbags make an outfit pop, especially if the look is a little bit minimalist. On my part, I love wearing colorful outfits so my bag should be classy and in neutral colors. Basically, my white handbag is perfect for any look since it is really simple. It is also unique because the design is not so big and not so small, just the right size for a fashion lover like me. 

5. Pink Ice Watch

My friend, Aisie, gave me this pink Ice watch as a gift. She also gave one to Iris, our common friend. The packaging is really chic and fancy that is perfect for safekeeping the watch. If you'll not use the box to store the watch after using it, you can transform it into a coin bank. In addition, the color is totally amazing so I really love the product.

Top Three Ways to Handle Haters Without Losing Your Dignity

Will you agree with me that every now and then, you'll discover that a lot of haters surround you in a group where you belong? Or you supposed to belong?

You'll probably nodding your head right now.

I've experienced a lot of people who are always trying to get ahead of others by hurting their fellows. They don't want your promotion. They're threatened of your success, even if it's just a small one. They're not contented of what they have and tend to feel envious of you. They will say side comments in front of you that they thought you won't hear it. But you did.

Since haters gonna hate, all you really need is to be prepared for their next attack. At least now, you're fully aware that they're trying to be nice to you but actually fail in hiding their facial expressions. Their eyes say it all. Right?

Here are the top three ways to handle haters without losing your dignity. Don't get your hands dirty because of these people. They're not worth your time.

1. Don't react directly to any attack.

Be subtle. Wait for that perfect moment to give a deafening reply that will make your opponent so ashamed to even say a word or raise an eyebrow.

2. Delay your anger. 

You can better think of strategies to defeat your opponents if you have plenty of time to find the right move. It will also help you look dignified, something that your enemy will be afraid of.

3. Be humble.

You're going to use this trick wisely, though. Sometimes people will trample on your rights because you're too lenient on them.

I've given you simple ways to stay dignified in front of pretentious, jealous and sarcastic individuals. Make sure to learn from your experiences and be wise in dealing with other people. Take care!

How to Maintain Your Upwork Profile in 2018

I've started working through Upwork since 2012 and a lot of things changed since then. I just joined the platform to prepare for freelancing in the future [which is right now] and it really helped me to be patient about anything freelance. Here are a few things that you should remember in maintaining your Upwork profile this 2018.

1. Always find work and get paid to avoid your profile to become private that will not allow potential employers to find you via search.

This is basically a new rule for me and I never heard anyone talking about this one. I just discovered this when my profile was turned to private by Upwork after not having income for more than three weeks, I think, and it was really a huge change on my freelancing activity. So now I learned to have at least 2-3 clients every week.

2. Check the background of the employer first before starting to sending an application letter or submitting a proposal. You can do so by checking the reviews about the potential client and read all the comments. In that way, you'll have an idea on what type of client you'll be dealing with in the future.

3. Maybe, you can start applying work of clients that have already invested a lot at Upwork. In that way, you can avoid those who can't pay or those who have no plans of paying you in the first place.

4. Be mindful of your reviews. I usually provide positive reviews for clients who really gave me a smooth, meaningful and profitable working experience. They usually provide remarkable rating in return.

In closing, make sure to develop a good working relationship with your clients. Obviously, your rating or job success will go down if some clients will give you low rating.

Happy freelancing! 💓
