Before I start blogging about all of my favorite makeup and lifestyle topics, I figured I would tell you a bit more about myself.
I’m Nerina, a 30-something semi-recent single mom who works full time as a Middle School English Teacher as well. I love my co-workers, my job, and most of all, my students. Every single day is filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.
Being a teacher has taught me so much about passion, and kindness, and empathy. It has taught me the ability to push someone to reach their highest potential. It has taught me that some days, its not about the learning, but about the love and compassion that these kids sometimes go without.
Teaching has made me a better person. My students have made me a better person. I am forever changed for having been blessed to be a teacher.
I am also a mom to a vibrant, amazing, creative, rambunctious little boy named Gavin (who is growing up wayyy too fast for my liking). He is the light of my life and the kindest person I know. He will always offer to share, he will always kiss my owwie’s away, and will lay his head on my shoulder and tell me he loves me about 30 times a day.
He is a ray of sunshine! Full of sass and humor, and is always telling jokes!
I am also blessed to have a good relationship with his dad that makes parenting easy and stress free.
I am also a baker. I love baking and decorating cookies. For a while there, I thought this would make an amazing career for me. I love it and luckily, I am really good at it.
After the divorce, juggling a full time job and being a single mom really took its toll on me and I have not been able to take orders since.
Nonetheless, here are some pictures of some of the cookies I made.
I also love all things make-up, fitness, lifestyle, fashion, and home decorating. I seriously cannot wait to share with you all of my favorite things!
Until Next Time,
