Laurita Always

Updates in My Daily Life & A Giveaway!

Monday, May 18, 2015

Hi there. Welcome back to my blog!
As you can see I'm alive and well from this picture. This was taken a few weeks back after I filmed two videos for my YouTube channel of two reviews!

Let's get started, shall we? I am still not back on my blogging track. How come? I cannot find my card reader to transfer all of my pictures and videos for new posts which is killing me! Oh my god. Why I can't find it? It is because my room is a mess and always destroyed by my two year old nephew, Benji. Why boys got to be so rough especially to my makeup lot!? I even bought a new door knob with a lock and key to keep him out BUT it couldn't work out due to that little annoying metal plate that was in the way of the lock to the hole of the door frame. UGH. Also, ha, my sister tore my door off as we couldn't get out of my room too. Seriously, I need a room makeover like A-S-A-P. Anyway, more to my daily life, I am going to be an aunty.....AGAIN. Haha! Yayy! This time, it is one of my sister who I am really close to, Big Jessica. She already have a four year old son, Israel and I'm so legit happy for her because she always wanted an another child earlier but couldn't due to financial situation, college, and of course, the duty as a mother. Then next thing my family and I knew, her Facebook post online telling us she is pregnant with an another child! Seriously, my family and I are excited because it's been wayyyyyyyyyyy too long since we had a girl in this family! Haha! So I want to shout out to my big sis, Jessica: CONGRATS BIG JESSICA! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIM/HER ALREADY!! Laugh a lot and stay positive! Haha.

So yes, you now know about my room, my extending family, and oh! I quit my hostess job due to the fact I couldn't keep up with it. Here was my schedule for one day before with two jobs:

7 am: Get up, drive big sis, Yola to her job, and drop her off.
8 am; Benji is wide awake and ready to conquer the world. Me, not really. Still in daze and sleep deprived.
9 am: Naptime for me. 
10 am: Get ready for work at Amalfi's. 
11 am: Drop Benji off at a family home for a couple hours.
11:30 am: Work started at Amalfi's.
1:30 pm: Off of Amalfi's and on my way to pick Benji up.
2:00 pm: Get pre-dinner meal ready for Benji and big sis.
2:30 pm: Pre-dinner is ready and feed Benji.
3:00 pm: Pick big sis up and come back home.
3:15 pm: Straight to my bed for 2 hours nap.
5:00 pm: Get up and get ready for work at Tyson.
5:15 pm: On my way to Tyson and the work starts from there on.
3 am: Finally off of Tyson and go home.
3:15 am: On my bed, dead asleep.

Oh my god. As I looked back, I know I cannot go back to that schedule. Haha! I always love my beauty sleep and I still do so mm-mm! Ain't going back to that again! Haha! Don't worry, I still work at Tyson and each and every passing day, I enjoy it working there even if my hands are swollen every morning and shoulders sore every night. I love it still. Pay is still great in my opinion. I get to help out a family member or two once in a while with their debts or bills with no problems. I get to spoil my cats and kittens with pride. However, I need to prioritize of what I want to what I NEED. Haha. For an example, I need a laptop, a new camera that meets my blog and YouTube channel needs, and of course, a room makeover! Oh yes. Speaking of laptops, here comes the giveaway part! Enter down below to win a GOLD MACBOOK! Yes, you read that right! FREE Gold Macbook! The giveaway starts today to June 15! And yes, it is open to everyone WORLDWIDE! Heck yeah! What are you waiting for? Enter and have fun!

HELLOOOOOO THERE!! Yes, I know it's been a long, long time since a post went up on my blog.  I know I did not post up of all the reviews that I said in a previous post but I had been so busy. Oh my god. No joke about getting up at seven in the mornings to take care of Benji while his mother goes to work and sometimes, my eyes cannot open any longer, I would sleep a few hours. Haha! Then at three, my sister comes home and I find this an opportunity to get a nap right away! Next thing I know, it's four o'clock and I need to be ready for work. Every day, I come home from work at 3 in the morning. Crazy.. I'm telling you. Haha!  

Yesterday, it was my 22nd birthday and I had to work on my special day. Boo! Haha! This past Sunday, I was supposed to celebrate my birthday with a party for my family and I. The weather opposed it unfortunately. It rained all dang day. The party had an Easter Hunt for my nieces and nephews so I had to tell my family that there won't be any celebration but will save all the decor and props for next year.

I have a SECOND job!!

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Hi there! 

Yikes! It's been almost THREE weeks since I have done anything on my blog and I am so, so sorry about that! I have definitely been busy with my hostess job these past few weeks! However, I am so excited to tell you another great news that I just recently received and that is I have a new job AGAIN! Yay! Please celebrate with me! Cheers! Yes, I still have my hostess job at Amalfi's Italian Restaurant and I can say that is my morning job if that makes any sense. Haha! My new job is being a poultry trimmer at a widely known food processing plant called Tyson. Tyson is a plant that processes mostly of poultry. So Tyson is my night job because I work at 5 in the afternoon to 2 in the early morning. Yes. It's going to be long weeks ahead of me but hey, I'm not complaining at all. I am very blessed to even have a family who believes in me when they tell me I will get the two jobs I have right now. Speaking of these jobs, I have thought about my blog these days. I decided that I will only have sponsors for the month of April and that will be the end of sponsorships for my blog because I am sure that after April, things will get busy and hectic. I would not find time to help my sponsors out as much as I would love to. I think I will be fine with that though because I know I can now thoroughly support my blog on my own! Ah. Now, I am starting to loving the independence of being a blogger! How nice! Haha. Now to the actual content of my blog, I have NEW reviews and fun posts on many products that I have received the past few weeks from many companies! I will start posting this week so be on the lookout! Here are a few hints: Fit Snack, Frangipani Body Products, Pura D'or, A&M Treasure Box and more!

There ya go. Now you know a bit of what's happening in my life so far. If you like to know how my interview went with Tyson, it was a really long (4 hours) interview, then let me know in the comments! I am more than happy to tell you all how it went down. Haha! So yes, thank you so much for reading. I hope to see y'all next time. Until then, bye!!
