How is everyone feeling today? April is ending and I’m happy to say that it was a great month. Many good things happened and I can’t wait to keep this good spell going. Especially for the blog! This has been the best month since I started blogging last year, and I just want to grow even more. For that, my gift to you is a freebie. The classic habit tracker and planner!
As you can see, the blog has a new look. I changed my theme and I’m loving it! What has me more excited is that I can finally add a more professional store. So now I can start selling my products. Coming soon: Pinterest templates! They will be available for Photoshop and Canva. I know many of you use that tool.

Two months ago I made a switch in my life, or more like in my head. I started being more positive and worry less about things, trusting that everything will be okay. Telling myself to ‘go with the flow’. I’m amazed at how things started, slowly, getting better. So I’m excited to keep improving and reach all my goals. Now, let’s do what I normally do when a new month is starting. Repeat and believe this:
May will be a good month. May will be a good month. May will be a good month.
Don’t forget that and keep it in your mind! Seriously! I know doubts will come and bumps in the road will make you think that whatever you want is not going to work, but it will! Maybe not when you want, but believe me, it’s going to work out. Just trust the universe, God, or any other powerful force you believe in.Doubts will come and bumps in the road will make you think that whatever you want is not going to work, but it will!

1. Pendulum Dowsing Workshop
This was life-altering! I learned so many things and I can’t wait to keep improving. Do you know what dowsing is? Well, in simple words dowsing is a type of divination that helps you to gain insight into a question or situation, all that by using a pendulum or another tool. My aunt (the one who made the workshop) has been doing it for years, helping many people with their medical problems, but can use it in many other ways!
I know that many people don’t believe any of this, and that’s okay. For me, it was an amazing experience that helped me to be in tune with myself.
The first time I listened to it, I was like… Okay, I like it. The second time it was when I knew I was going to see listen to it many times a day. I’m exactly that person that listen non stop a good song until you end up hating it because of that. I can’t help! It puts me in such a good mood too, so everything is good.
I can’t explain how good this product is! I haven’t used lipstick this whole month because I’m obsessed with this lip shimmer from Burt’s Bees. This doesn’t mean that it can replace lipstick, especially if you want a long-lasting color. It’s more for a day look.
My lips are chapped all the time, so I’m constantly using lip balm to calm that annoying sensation that chapped lips bring. Why I love this product so much? First, it makes my lips feel so fresh, especially because they have a touch of mint. Secondly, it kinda cures my chapped lips, I don’t have to reapply every ten minutes and that helps so much! Sometimes it feels like I’m a slave of lip balms. I can’t go anywhere without one!
It can be a little disappointing that the container is too small. I mean, 0.09 oz it’s not a lot. It could be bigger.
My favorite colors: Cherry and Raisin.
4. Start Meditating
After learning at my dowsing workshop how good is meditation for you, I made the decision to try. So I committed myself to meditate every day in the morning for 10 minutes. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but mornings go by so fast that sometimes I forget to do it. So far I’ve meditated at least 4 times a week, hoping this month I will do it more!
Mindfulness meditation can be a little difficult at first, especially for the ones who have a hard time focusing. If you want to start meditating, the best thing you can do is to find a guided meditation on Youtube. It’s what I did! I would link mine, but it’s in Spanish.
5. Starting My Own Products
I’m so excited to start this new stage on my blog! Selling my own products can be a little scary but I’m so ready for it! I have so many ideas, but I told myself that I wouldn’t start another project until I finish the first one. Being that, Pinterest templates! I wanted them to be accessible for everyone, and since many of you use Canva as their design tool, I made sure to have that option too.
The designs are ready, I just need to make the Canva version. That is taking longer than I thought since I had to learn how to use Canva, but everything is going great so far.
Here’s there’s a little sneak peek of what I’m making. Let me know what you think about them!
I got this foundation for free thanks to Influenster, and I’m so happy I tried it! Especially because the color I chose matches my skin perfectly. Besides that, I had to say that I’m not a big foundation fan. Especially the ones that are full coverage. I just hate how it feels on my skin and I prefer to not put anything on and let my skin breathe.
However, sometimes it is necessary. I like lightweight foundations, that’s always going to be my first choice, but even those sometimes feel horrible on my skin. That’s why sometimes I prefer BB creams instead.
So far I haven’t been lucky, but after trying the Shameless Foundation, I knew I had found the one. I even forget that put it on! So if you are like me, you are going to love it!
I’m using color: medium R310
I don’t remember the last time a movie has shocked me so much. I normally can guess how a movie will end. They are so predictable! But this time… it was a surprise, after surprise. I even reached a point where I wanted to skip to the end. Yes, I’m that annoying person that loves spoilers and would ask about the big finales.
Either way, I RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE. I watched it on Netflix, but I’m not sure if it’s in the US. Maybe you can look at the international Movies section. Here in Chile was there.
8. New Logo and Theme
If you are an Elephant on the Road regular, you noticed that I’m doing some changes on my blog. The first one being the theme, and the second one the logo. I think that the little elephant is adorable and it adds a nice touch to it. It almost feels likes if the elephant was walking! At least for me lol
I spent my Friday and Saturday making the changes. It hasn’t been easy, especially after almost messing up with my whole blog trying to change the permalink settings. I still believe I have to make the change, but I will leave that to a professional. So what do you think? Do you like it? Let me know in the comments!
