Skincare Routine (Summer 2017)

Hey guys , with the summer heat my skin has been a wreck. Recently I found a great combo for my combination skin that has really helped with the scarring and acne itself . Most of the products I use are pretty much natural and affordable. 

1. Cleanser- I use to use the most expensive cleanser like Clinique and a few other drug store products like Clearasil , Clean and Clear , and Acne Free. I found that those product only work for a short period of time. And I needed something that would help get rid of the acne as well as the scarring left behind. I remember my mom telling me to go with the basic for my face and she mentioned using black soap. So yesterday I went to the commissary and purchased black soap from the brand Shea Moisture and it worked wonders overnight. I could tell a huge difference in the way my skin felt after using it. And the good thing is it was less then three dollars.

2. Toners- I never knew how important toner were, until I read an article about the importance of toning your face and how it was the most forgotten step in skin care. I use to just pick up toner from the brands mention above until , once again my mother introduce me to witch hazel. Witch Hazel is great for blemishes and damaged skin and it only cost about three dollars.

3. Moisturizers- Moisturizing your face is also an important step in your skin care routine even if you have oily to combination skin. The moisturizer I use for my face is shea butter. Now I know that sound weird, but it actually works well for my skin and help fade my acne scars. The best part is it last a lot longer than majority of my other moisturizers.

This concludes my summer skin care routine. Most of the products mention above are affordable and natural as well. And I only use three product to help cleanse my skin.Skin care is important especially during the summer time with the sweat from the heat . Let me know your skin care routine in the comments below.

Back to School Haul (2018)

Hey guys today I thought I would show you some of my school supplies for this upcoming semester. I am a pre-nursing student so a lot of the items I purchased are mainly for organization. The classes I am taking is Human Anatomy and Physiology 2 with lab and Pharmacology. This semester will be a lot of heavy material , memorization and reading. So I hope you enjoy what I picked out for this semester. 

Summer Curly Natural Hair Must Haves ( Summer 2018)

1. Invest in a good conditioner it doesn't have to be expensive , I like to use Garnier Whole Blend Restoring Conditioner in the scent Maple Remedy. I find that with this conditioner it deeply nourishes my hair and retains moisture. 

2. Get a good leave in conditioner, I normally switch between the Curls Blueberry Bliss and Garnier Curl Nourish Butter-cream. I like both of them and they both smell good buts its all preference and what works best for your hair. 
3. In the summer time I do not like to put a lot of tension on my hair so I switch to using scrunchies instead of hair ties. I find that my hair is still secure without the tension.

4. When I do a wash and go I love to use Miss Jessie's Coily Custard for the summer time , its easy to apply and throw your hair in a pony.
5. I also apply coconut oil to my hair each night before bed when I put my hair in a protective style. I find that it moisturizes my hair and my hair feels soft and more manageable in the morning. 

Back to School Haul 2018 (Planner Edition)

Hey guys today I will be showing you some of the planners I picked up for the semester. And I will be showing some of the planner accessories as well. This semester I picked up three planners , I know thats too many planners but I have my reasoning's.  The first planner that I picked up was the Lilly Pulitzer planner its convenient for my job but as far as school there isn't a lot of space to work with especially being a nursing student.

The second planner I picked up was the Green Botanical , this planner has a lot of space to write in and plus there is extra pages in the back . I will be using this planner for school .

The third planner I purchased was this one , I am not sure of the name but I got it from Micheals. It is similar to the Happy Planner and I will be using it as my everyday planner .
