It's been requested! So here's my routine!
I was breaking out (I'll share how I stopped it below.) and it's a little on the dry side (probably from some of the things I do that I'll talk about below.). Oh, I'm also SUPER pale. I quit tanning to help my skin (and prevent wrinkles) but right now I'm also getting laser hair removal done so I can't get spray tans done! :(
I (hopefully) wake up with no makeup on (unless it was one of THOSE nights...).
Now, this isn't technically a part of "skincare" but changing my makeup made a...
You can set yourself up to be more successful by preparing for success. Keeping certain things in your car will make it easier for you to do things like getting to work on time and make it to the gym. Keeping your car clean can also make you feel less stressed since you'll enjoy going in your car each day. So let's get into how to keep your car clean.
You'll want to clean out your car to get it clean to start with. Once it's clean, just take out your trash each day when you get home from work. This way you only have a little bit to throw out each day versus letting it pile up. Make sure to get regular car washes as well! I have a monthly car wash membership so I was my car 1-2 times a week.
I also love to keep seat covers, mats, and a steering wheel cover on my car to keep in clean and to help with the heat!
I keep two gym bags in my car. I keep one...
No way! If I ever got rejected I took it SO personally and it upset me SO much.
Two things changed.
Let me explain.
When you're 100% yourself and you're not apologizing for it, you don't have to try to act a certain way. You don't have to try to live up to a certain expectation. All you have to do is do what you feel is right for you. For me, that includes loving dogs, unicorns, anything pink, brunch, anything social media, my family, my friends. I know who I am and I'm VERY clear on that. (I'll get to why this matters in a bit.) So figure out who you are, and be yourself!
Once I knew what I wanted, and what I didn't want, I had to put rules in place to respect that. I have rules in place for both my personal and my professional life. Some of my personal rules are taking time to learn new things, working...
Well if you follow me on Snap or IG (@AzaleeMaslow) you know I've been getting laser hair removal at Simplicity Laser. (If you sign up there mention my name so I can get a month free :) )
What you may not know is I've been getting A TON of questions about it. So here are all your answers!
It's a laser that zaps you and you grow back a lot less hair.
The laser has a cold air blower attached to it to make it hurt less!
Oh when they do your legs, they draw white lines on them to be sure they get every spot.
My lower legs, the top of my feet/toes, armpits and Brazilian.
I've been getting my Brazilian waxed for YEARS so it doesn't really phase me. I just lay back with my legs in a butterfly and watch Snap stories.
The only part that's different than getting a Brazillian is when they do you butt. When you're getting waxed...
Honestly, I'd rather not. But of all my Instagram posts, my Phentermine post is the one I consistently get questions on. I'll get into why "I'd rather not" talk about it later in this post. That Instagram post is below.
Phentermine is a medication prescribed by a doctor to help you lose weight. Sometimes it's prescribed with an additional medication to help more, such as Topiramate or B-12 shots. Topiramate helps accelerate the weight loss. B-12 helps with energy.
Phentermine makes you not hungry at all. Sometimes, even kind of nauseous. You just don't want to eat, nothing sounds good. You really have to force yourself to eat on it.
I lost 45 pounds in about 2 months.
Sure! If you don't want to lose weight. The 2 months I lost 45 pounds I was very strict on my diet. I had barely any...

Do you want to become an influencer in your niche? If you do then follow these 5 steps!
The first step to becoming an influencer is deciding what you want to be an influencer of! You'll want to pick something you like and know a lot about! Make sure it's something you can create content about and that people are interested in!
Next, you need to decide where you want to be an influencer. Pick the social platform that makes the most sense for you and your niche. If you're great on video, YouTube might be right for you. If you're great at taking photos then Instagram could be your jam!
How often are you going to post? You should base this on the platform you chose! Also, make sure it's something you can keep up with over time. You don't want to start out posting a ton and get burnt out!
There's no reason to do what you can automate! Schedule your posts so you stay consistent! One of my favorite tools...
Do you want more Instagram followers?
Duh, who doesn't right!
Maybe you want more followers just for fun, or maybe you're a business owner that wants to use Instagram to get more clients.
Either way, these tips are sure to help you out!
What's your username? Make sure it's either your name or your company name. Also, be sure to use the same username on every social platform, so you're easy to find!
Do you have a business account on Instagram? You should! Having a business account allows you to see all of your analytics! To have a business account, all you need it a Facebook Page.
You want your profile pic to match your overall account! Make sure it's something eye-catching that makes people want to click it to learn more about you!
Your bio should tell people who you are, what you do, and why they should care. It should also give them a reason to click the link!
Your link in your bio...
Hold up...why do I need a blog? I never asked, "how do I start a blog?"!? I thought you were going to teach us about becoming a SOCIAL MEDIA influencer?!
Relax...I am...take a chill pill sassy pants. I have a point! It doesn't matter if you want to be an influencer on YouTube or Snapchat or Instagram...you still need a home base. Why? Because what happens when the platform you're a celebrity on up and disappears? Myspace? Vine? Ring a bell? What happens when they change their algorithms and you have to PAY to reach YOUR FANS? Wouldn't you rather already have those people on lock? Facebook Pages ring a bell?
Now you can do whatever you want, but when you hit 100k followers on Instagram and your account gets hacked, don't come crying to me!
