I used to be quite the rebel when it came to sleep. I'd stay up until all hours of the night working on different projects and watching Youtube videos - some nights I'd be up until 4 or 5am! I'd usually have trouble falling asleep (and staying that way all throughout the night without waking up once or twice), so it was just easier to stay up and get work done. I've recently made an effort to follow a more normal sleeping schedule, and I've found a few tricks that work quite well at getting better sleep.
I'm a big believer in self-education. I enjoy researching things, learning about different topics, and bettering myself - hence why I'm such a fan of self-help and inspirational reads. I've got a little collection of books that fall into this category, and I thought I'd share them today since they've all helped inspire and motivate me in life and with my blog.
Since it's the end of July, I've got another little roundup of favorite products from the month. The past few weeks have been incredibly hot, so my go-to products lately have been super light and hydrating. I think it's safe to say I'm totally ready for cool fall weather and rainy autumn days.
Last month, I shared 5 blog babes that give awesome advice and you guys seemed to really love that post. So, I thought it would be fun to turn the topic into a regular feature here on AGO (with the type of content creators I feature changing from time to time - sometimes they might be lifestyle or coaching bloggers, other times they could be beauty or fashion). Today, I've got 6 more blog babes that offer up advice and tips on blogging, business, and entrepreneurship!
We've been "enjoying" quite the heatwave here in Missouri for the past couple weeks...days where the heat index reaches 107 degrees and I say silent prayers that my air conditioning keeps kicking out beautiful ice cold air. I don't tend to wear much makeup on the super hot days - just some concealer, powder, mascara, and tinted lip balm. It's on days like these that I put in a little extra work at making sure my concealer does it's job for as long as possible since it's pretty much going solo.
