I recently started to like baking too! Do you have a favorite blog for baking? Mine is Sally’s Baking Addiction.

We are doing the feel good challenge too! Im Marie and we were kid free for like ever! * not saying you will change your mind, gosh I hated being told that! * Kudos, do yo thang! We were military so we moved around quite a bit. I LOVE cartoon network… I am going to blame it currently on kids but I was an addict before then haha!

Monica

I have a few favs for sure but I follow a lot of bakers on Instagram. They make some amazing stuff!!

Monica

Yes!!! My husband is in the Coast Guard so that’s why we move so much. I love it though…lol.

Hi Monica:
It must be great to have a twin sister!
And finding friends online is a great thing. About 10 years ago I met one of my best friends on the internet ♥.
Wish you the best of luck with your book! :D

Monica

Having a twin is super fun for sure. Thanks so much!!

I always love reading about you, I feel like I already know you and then you throw a curveball in the mix like being a math geek. Now you know you need to get on Skype with Desman and help him with that 43 and stop playing, you can be honorary god mama you know they like you. LOLOL.

Sugar Skull Tutorial

Can I just say that this was one of the most fun things I’ve done recently? Well it is. Transforming myself into a Sugar Skull face truly taught me patience…lol. I was a little worried when I started. It took a while for the makeup to layer and I was worried that my pores would […]

I love the fact that you used makeup sticks! This turned out so great….

I’ve always liked “Día de muertos” is a very pretty tradition :)

Monica

Yes! So great :) I love how it turned out on you wow!! Wonderful video!!

So you know I am going to try this right. I might need to put some crisco on my lips before I do this, because lord knows I can’t mess up the DSL’s boo. No for real .. I am SO excited to try this.

A Simple Introduction

Hi all! Although I have a handy dandy section that tell you who I am, I think it’s a great idea to just write a post all about me. My name is Monica Day. No, I’m not the news anchor or beauty pageant contestant. I am a photographer, artist, baker, writer, wife, daughter, and sister. […]

It’s great to read that your blog has evolved and now you can share posts of many topics!
If someday you need help with your Spanish, maybe I could help; my first language is Spanish :D
And yes! Anything is possible!

I’m interested to learn about how you blog about so many topics, I’m excited to read more!

Monica

That would be soooo awesome!! I think I’m just afraid to use what I do know.

Monica

Thanks! I’m interested to see how this works as well…lol. I know we’re always told to focus on one thing but my one thing is me soooooo. ;)

My family is from Dominican Republic so we are neighbors haha except I don’t live there. Great post can’t wait to continue to see your photography business develop

I started my blog to be accountable to myself too! I do hope you stick with this one :) I really enjoyed reading your introduction and btw “I don’t want to be that unaccountable girl anymore. I want to be the woman that everybody can count on.” <— amen! I'm in the same boat as you. But we can do this!!

Monica

Nice to meet you, Monica! I read your intro and checked out your YouTube videos, and now I totally want to be friends with you. Is that weird? Congrats on your weightloss journey, I know it’s not an easy one. I’m on my on weight loss quest, too. And can I just say that it’s SO COOL that you went to Lara Jade’s workshop?! I’m so glad I found your blog through the Feel Good Blogging Challenge. I will be following along with your progress! :)

Monica, Thank you sooooo much for your inspiration. I have been struggling with getting back to a healthy weight and diet myself. It is SO difficult living in the environment I live in. I am from the southern US (Alabama) and we have a strong culture of VERY unhealthy eating habits LOL. Thanks so much for putting yourself out there. You are beautiful and it shines through in your blog!
Blessings,
Chrissy

Cancer Can Kiss My A–

Why do people say that a person has “lost their battle” with cancer when they pass away? Did they really lose? Maybe the fought for a long, long, long time and now they are ready to move on. Maybe they fought long and hard and actually won the fight because they didn’t let cancer take […]
