Dealing With Paranormal Activity

Hello Dumplings,

          It is one of my favorite times of year. Tonight on my radio show we are going to be talking about some spooky personal experiences and advice about how to handle yourself if you encounter the paranormal. Perhaps you believe, but even if you don't I hope you find this post entertaining:)

         Okay so when I say paranormal what I am speaking of is energy that is not attached to a living being( ghosts,demons,entities,spirits. . . ) I will be talking about my own personal experiences on tonight's show, but below I will list a few pointers to help you overcome your fears and take control of your life and or home.

        I wanted to address that I am not a medium and I do not speak with spirits. I choose to disconnect with any abilities that I might have. In my experiences it is a door once opened that is very difficult to close.

Don't open the door
 I know that it can be tempting to dabble with the idea of talking with the paranormal, especially this time of year. Most people open the door without even being aware of what they've done. Fooling around with friends trying to have a seance or play with a oija board. My advice is don't bother. If anyone in the group has a sensitivity to the paranormal and is un-aware, or if there is an overwhelming negative energy in the space you are at risk.

Don't trust what you can't see
  Opening the door to that world is like leaving the front door to your home wide open. Imagine all the random strangers that could enter your home with out your control.  It takes experts years to learn how to safe guard themselves from negative entities.  Beings with negative intent will try to manipulate you to gain your trust. They will pretend to be children,heroes,and even lost loved ones. letting your guard down gives them power, and that is what they desire. They thrive on negative energy like fear, anger,sadness, and anxiety. The stronger you feel these emotions the stronger they become.

Ignore, Ignore, Ignore
  Okay so your washing dishes and all of a sudden you get a creepy feeling, or see something weird. The best thing you could do is remain calm and just go about your business. Showing fear of curiosity will intensify the energy and strengthen the entity. Ignoring gives you power and strength.

Keep It Positive
  If you have activity in your home or office it is more important than ever to not give in to sadness,fear or anger. If you are having disputes with someone speak to them calmly. Don't leave things hanging, clear the air. Put on music that makes you happy. Be aware that the being might try to provoke things so learn to laugh it off. Also you can burn sage and bathe yourself in sea salt to remove negative energy. If you are religious use the power of prayer to help you and give you comfort. The trick is whatever you believe in will help you.

Okay so I tried that stuff and they are still here!!!
  Regroup with the others you live with, make sure everyone is following the above rules. If that is the case then you have two options you can bring in a expert(religious leader or medium). Do lots of research find someone that you can trust to help. Another option is for the least affected member of your group to take a stand. Speak firmly to the entity and ask it to leave. "You are not welcome here, please leave right now"). I suggested the person who was least affected to speak because they are the ones that the being has the least power over.

          Not all paranormal activity is bad, and sometimes it is just lingering energy that doesn't have a mind of it's own. If you have been happily living with paranormal activity then it's best to let things be. This post is more to serve as a warning and to help deal with an unpleasant situation.

          I hope you will be listening to tonight's show. I will be live tweeting throughout so follow us @psychicE_R if you would like to receive those tweets:)

          You may listen to our show Tuesday @11:30pm est.  here

Being Your Own Best Friend

Hello Dumplings,

      I have luckily been blessed with some wonderful best friends. I hope you have too. Friends can be your second family, and best support in times of need. Unfortunately not everyone has a crack team of besties they can count on. Usually these periods of time are temporary. In these times it is important to know that you can be your own best friend. We all have that inner instinct that guides us through our day. Sometimes we listen and sometimes we don't. If you develop a good and honest relationship with yourself you will feel more confident and self reliant. You will also notice your life moving in a better direction. I am going to give you a few tips to get you started:)

Get a diary or a journal
 This is where you can release your secrets,dreams,plans,ideas. . . . White in it every morning or evening when you are most peaceful. This is a place where you won't be judged so let loose. You never know what inspirational ideas you might discover.

Get an agenda
 This is to keep you on track. If you write it down you won't forget! Get an agenda that you can keep in your purse or bag. This is the first place where you become your best friend by remembering to take it with you and check it frequently lol.

Set goals and keep them
  These goals can be small at first. They should be reasonably attainable like organizing your purse or shredding old mail. You can gradually build up to more challenging goals. Making yourself stick to them is where the best friend part comes in. Achieving goals on a regular basis makes you feel accomplished and builds self esteem. Any movement forward is a step toward success, and is better than sitting still in sadness or chaos.

Be honest with yourself
  This sounds much more difficult than it is. We are all born with instincts and intuition.Whenever we feel torn about a decision big or small there is always that little voice that guides us. Most of the time we regret not listening to that little voice when things go wrong. You need to start honoring that intuition and trusting it to lead you through difficult decisions.

Don't beat yourself up
  We are often so much more harsh on ourselves than we need to be. That negativity builds up on a daily basis and eventually you think your the dumbest,fattest,ugliest. . . person on earth. It's important to acknowledge your mistakes, but there's a big difference between "I wish I would have done that differently" and "what else is knew? I always screw up!"

Know your limits
  It's important to be your own cheerleader and push yourself, but more importantly it's important to know your physical and emotional limits. Taking a break from hard work or defining your emotional boundaries with a friend or partner will keep you balanced and strong. Don't compete with others set goals that fit your abilities.

Do something nice for yourself.
  A deliberate kind act to yourself promotes self worth and is the bridge to accepting love from others. These kindnesses can be small daily things like getting your nails done,taking a bubble bath,or buying yourself flowers. The goal is to do something that feels good emotionally.

          We are usually all to eager to go out of our way for someone else but it is so important to be good to ourselves as well. A lot of my clients are baffled because they go out of their way for others,but don't get the same treatment back. We all teach others how to treat us because of the way treat ourselves. If you are experiencing\ this problem I hope these tips help.

Simple Self Esteem Builders

Hello My Dearest Dumplings,

          The daily struggle that most of us face. Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's a heck of a lot more challenging. The truth is low self esteem is more than likely what's keeping you better relationships and job opportunities. Conquering the big bully inside us isn't as hard as you might think. I am going to lay out a few small ways that you can improve your self image every day. I have given these suggestions to many of my clients over the years and they have had positive results. These activities are designed to be done every day.

Write down 5 things you are grateful for. They don't have to be big, just things you are felling purely positive about.

Write down 5 things that you are good at. hey can be small and simple. It may be difficult for you to think of them at first, but they will come. Here are some examples to inspire you( good handwriting, posture,cook, good dog owner, organized. . .  you get the idea:)

Do something productive each day. Besides the daily things like going to work of feeding your kids. This is more of a personal goal to set and achieve for yourself. It's a physical manifestation of things moving in a positive direction in your life. Here are some ideas(organizing a drawer, dyeing your hair,painting your nails,learning a healthy new recipe,

Give something back. Sometimes it helps us feel better to be giving to others. You may not realize how valuable your skills might be to others. Donating time, money, and emotion for something you feel passionately about enriches your life on many levels. There is a delicate balance between giving and giving too much. It also may be hard to know where to start when you aren't used to giving or feeling passionately about anything.

These two sites are a great way to start. One click a day will feed people and animals. No cost or anything just click!

Help Animals  Feed Humans

If you want a more in depth guide to better self esteem I must recommend this book. It has helped me personally and I have also suggested it to many clients.

Is Your Root Chakra Unbalanced?

Hello Dumplings,

     Are you feeling stuck or in a rut? Or are you feeling insecure, unstable, and out of place? Chances are this may be a symptom of your Root Chakra being unbalanced.

     Chakras are strong points of energy around your body that govern different functions including physical, mental, and emotional. If one or more of these are out of sync you will experience a combination of symptoms.

     The Root Chakra is the first chakra. It sits at the base of the spine. This chakra represents physical health, activity, and how one feels about their surroundings.

     When the Root Chakra is unbalanced you may feel the following:
       .in a rut
       .feeling out of place or insecure
       .back and or leg pain
       .digestive disorders

     The good news is that there are several ways to balance your Root Chakra.

     Firstly be honest with yourself. Are you happy with your home, relationship,job,physical health? Journal about what you are feeling, and what you want to strengthen or change. Becoming aware of your fears and issues is the first step toward balance.

     Get some exercise ! physical movement is crucial to balancing this chakra that represents movement and action. Go for a walk/run, play sports,do yoga, or play with your kids. Speaking of yoga the following poses are perfect for balancing the Root Chakra( the tree, the chair, and downward dog).

    Clean up your diet with a healthy detox program, incorporating fresh fruit and veggies will improve your mood and appearance. Find a healthy detox plan that works for you. I personally love juicing and smoothies.

     On my radio show tonight's topic is Finding your destiny! If you are having problems sorting out your life and finding your best path we welcome you to tune in or call. If you are interested you can find all the show information on out website

     We hope to hear from you:)

Fashion Items I'm Lusting For

Hello My Dumplings,

          When I was younger I had a real passion for all things fashion. It has been years since I felt this park. While this is amazing for my self esteem, and creativity it's not so great for the wallet lol. I went spring clothes     shopping already so I need to cool it for a while, but these are some things I'm dying to add to my wardrobe :)

A Denim Jacket
   I'm not sure if I want one in denim or black. I just know I want one. I would love to wear it with maxi dresses and other outfits as a finishing touch. I just think they are so versatile

3 Inch Nude Pumps
   I really want these specifically to go with my beloved lipstick dress. I just think they would add a real polished look, and make my legs look taller.

  I am seriously lacking in belts :) I want a silver one in particular, but I'm also looking for other neutrals.

Chuncky Necklaces
 I can not wait to hit up clairs and forever 21 to stock up on inexpensive statement pieces.

          What summer items are you lusting after? On a side note today is the day that the winner is announced for my mega beauty giveaway!!!! I'm pretty pumped.

Beach Bag Must Haves

Hello Dumplings,

          Summer is almost here! I am not a big fan of the heat, but I love all the fun summer activities. I am putting together a grouping of things I am going to be putting in my beach bag this year. Some of them are my own creations from my store, and some are from other stores.

          The essential piece is the bag of course. I found this Bag at Old Navy. I love the bright colors against the clean white background. I also think the sequense are gonna look gorgeous in the sunlight.

         Of course we need a cute Beach Towel I think this one from Target is so adorable. I love the cute little gold fish and the cool blue background.

          It's really important to stay hydrated in the heat. This Water Bottle is from my store. It is made from recycled materials and is crack and freeze resistant. I picked the Daisy design, but we have other designs available This one was just so summery.


          Of course you gotta throw in some cute Sun Glasses. These not only keep the sun out of your eyes, they also help shield your eyes from sun damaging wrinkles. I think this pair is too cute. I love the shape and that cute little bow <3

          Speaking of sun protection lol. I love the Kiss My Face brand. It goes on smooth and creamy. It blends in easily. I t feels like a moisturizer. It is also cruelty free.

          Janson Sunscreen is what I use on my body. It smells really good, its all natural and of course cruelty free.

          I looked through a lot of different stores for a cute Cover Up. I liked this one from Walmart because it looks very flattering on lots of different shapes, and it covers pretty well for modesty.

        Nothing say's beach glamour like a Big Floppy Straw Hat. These literally help make my summers so much more pleasant. I always feel so feminine and glamorous when I wear them. I love the black rim. It just adds a cute touch.

          I think I'm going to do some beach themed videos for my channel. This vlog totally got me in the mood. I hope you all have a wonderful day <3

Dare Party Animal Nail Polish Set

Hello My dumplings,

          I got this fun set as a birthday present from my Mom and Dad. I was super excited because I have been wanting to get my hands (and nails) on some neon polish for the longest time. My Mom is psychic lol. I had never heard of this brand before so I was really curious to try them out.

            These polishes are sold exclusively at walmart. They are cruelty free and made in the U.S.A. They came packaged together as a set. I threw my packaging out, but I found this image on google :)

           As a whole the set is really cute. I love the packaging. I think it would be so much fun to use these colors for nail art designs. I normally don't do this in my reviews but I'm going to list pro's and con's.

They are very pigmented
They have a matte texture which gives you versatility
They dry completely in less than 60 seconds.
They are cruelty free.
They are inexpensive.

They go on splotchy.
You need 2 to 3 coats for the green to look decent.
The names aren't on the bottles.
They stain your nails.

         All in all I would say they are worth picking up. I think if you use a good base coat and apply them with thicker coats you'll be very happy. Here is a look at the individual shades.

Bold Move (neon pink)

Heating Up ( neon orange)

Social Magnet (neon green)

Natural Flirt (neon coral)

Social Magnet, Bold Move, Heating Up, Natural Flirt

With a glossy top coat

          I will most likely be creating some nail tutorials using these for my youtube channel. I hope you all have a wonderful day :) Don't forget to enter my Mega Beauty Giveaway!! I love you guys <3

Nyx Xtreme Lip Cream In Candy Land

Hello Dumplings,

          I purchased this product several months ago and sort of forgot about it. That tends to happen to me a lot lol. It is so much fun when you find a hidden treasure.

         I must say Nyx really knows there stuff when it comes to lip products. I have been really loving their stuff. The Xtreme Lip Cream is a glossy liquid lipstick. They come in 11 different shades and have a doe foot applicator. The texture is very smooth and creamy. They feel comfortable on the lips and last a few hours. The one I have has great pigmentation. They are available at Ulta for $5.99. I have already purchased another one in strawberry jam. I also have my eye on a few others :) They remind me a lot of the Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing lipstick. It's a similar formula and design. You can find them at Sephora for $16.

          Candy Land is a medium toned bright pink. It reminds me of summer and the beach. I have pale skin but I think it would look beautiful on anyone with a tan. It is an opaque color even with one coat. I've been wearing it like crazy.

          I hope you all have a wonderful day. if you would like to score some free Nyx products please enter my Mega Beauty Giveaway linked below. I love you guys :)

Spotlight Review Sigma P82 Small round top kabuki

Hello Dumplings,

          I recently received two sigma brushes for my birthday. I also purchased a set for myself. I am going to post a full blown review of all the brushes on my youtube channel in the future. For now I have been so so crazy about this particular brush.

          The P82 caught my eye originally because of it's shape and description of uses. I did not have anything like it in my collection already. It retails for $16.

          According to sigma this brush is intended to blend cream products such as primer, concealer, and cream eyeshadow.  I freaking love this brush so much. It works well. It's comfortable to hold, and it feels comfortable on the face.

          I used it for all of it's intended purposes and found it worked really well for everything.

Concealer- It blends like a dream and doesn't mess up the pigmentation of your concealer. The rounded shape makes it easy to get into odd corners around your eyes.

Eye Primer- I found that for primer application this brush makes the job a lot faster. I especially like it for thicker textures like Urban Decay's Eden.

Cream Shadows- Kind of like the concealer this brush distributes the product with out lessening the pigmentation. It gives a wonderful even coverage.

          So there you go lol. I have been using this brush everyday and I love it. It's everything I hoped it would be. I hope you all have a wonderful day:)
