We all have a few tasks in life we deeply dislike. I for one, despise ironing and avoid it all costs. My hatred stems mostly from being left handed. Trying to learn to iron as a left-handed kid was a nightmare. The iron cord was always in my way and I could never figure out which side of the ironing board to stand on. Thankfully, when I went to college I received a steamer and my wrinkle problem became less of a problem.
With every season change, I am reminded to evaluate my makeup and skincare products. I like to use products that work with the weather. In the winter, I tend to use moisturizing products that protect my skin at night. In the summer, I like to use fewer skin care products that allow my skin to breathe in the hot weather.
April has come and gone. Do you see May flowers?! Our weather has been a bit crazy. We’ve had overcast and rain and then a few days later, the sun is back! This month’s theme is “Make May Your Bae.” Let’s get ready for summer date nights!
Being a beauty blogger, I receive a ton of products to try. Sometimes, I wish I had sisters or lived closer to my extended family just so I could share everything that I receive! Many times, I end up giving away a lot of products. I’ve shipped boxes home to my mom but that can get expensive. I’ve also given them to my husband to take to work with him.
I’m the worst when it comes to dragging various items into the bath tub. I take everything in there: a drink, my cell phone, a candle, various facial scrubs/shower gels, bath sponge, razor, pumice stone, and usually a book or magazine for starters. Sometimes I even take snacks to munch on if I’m planning on reading and soaking for awhile before bathing.
The sides of my tub (even though it’s a large garden tub) can get pretty crowded if I’m not careful and I hate it when it looks cluttered. I’ve been wanting to add a bath caddy to my tub for a while but had been having trouble finding one I thought would work well. I found an Adjustable Bamboo Bath Caddy from ToiletTree™ that looked like it might be just the one for me. I’m also using a Professional Skincare System – Facial Brush Set from the same company and wanted to share my thoughts with our readers…. [read more]
When it comes to the beautifying process, a lot can be involved. Makeup, skincare, fashion…those are all key players in the stylish persona that is you. However, the products on your face and body aren’t necessarily more important than what’s on your head! If your hair is happy, you might not need much else–and SoapBox understands that. With shampoos and conditioners that come in a variety of scents–and come in gigantic bottles, so that your family will have a surplus of product (as opposed to the ever-looming hazard of running out mid-shower)–SoapBox is ready to make your hair regimen a positive one, instead of a chore!
Adulting is hard. There, I said it. Some days feel like you are wading through a battlefield and by the time you get home from your day’s activities it feels like you just want to collapse. But, you can’t because there are family issues to deal with, or homework and bath time with the kids, and dinner to make.
The point is that we all need down time to relax and recuperate from our day. One of the best ways to do that is to escape to a hot bath or shower. Lemme give you a glimpse of some items that I find essential to my relaxing end-of-day bath routine…. [read more]
With it being full blown traveling season I know lots of people are either headed out for spring break or getting ready for summer vacations. I don’t know about you, but when I travel I like to have things that make me feel comfortable and make it convenient to travel. I know sometimes weather in other places can take a huge toll on my skin and not having to use travel samples from hotels and having my own personal items can keep my skin from flaring up and breaking out.
Hello April! Spring is here! It is time to think about the sun! I don’t know about you but we’re getting rain! It’s been raining off and on for the last few days! This month’s theme is “Stay Golden.” With summer coming up, I am already thinking of the sun and enjoying the warmer weather!
