Glow.

Hello, beautiful people.

For today’s post, we’re getting deep- skin deep. I’ve gotten into the habit of taking better care of my skin and that includes a few facial masks, which I will be sharing with you. By all means, I’m no beauty blogger, so I’ll try my best to pretend like I know what I’m talking about.

I love this K&K beach clay masque from Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott, the women behind the health and fitness community, Tone It Up. It has a fresh scent and my skin always feels so great after plus it’s made from organic ingredients. I usually put it on before going into the shower because clay can be a little messy. I try to use it at least twice a week, but once is also good.

I must confess that the Yes to grapefruit brightening peel and the night treatment were compulsive purchases because they were on clearance at Walmart. Good decision because in the time I’ve been using it, I’ve noticed how my skin glows after and it smells amazing. It goes on for only 10 minutes, so it’s great if you’re short on time. Follow up with the night treatment for even more amazing results.

A new Ulta opened recently and I left with Panda’s dream white sleeping pack from TONYMOLY. It’s a cute little thing and I love it. You just let it do its job while you, spoiler alert, sleep. It absorbs into your skin quickly, so you don’t have to worry about any sticky feeling on your pillow. In the morning, rinse to reveal brighter-looking skin. This one I’ve been using three times a week.


What other masks should I try?

Check back soon for your new playlist.

Stay beautiful.

May wishes

It’s officially been a month since my last post. Oops. Anyway, I’m here now to kind of make up for lost time with your new playlist and a couple of my favorite things at the moment.

Update + favorite things.

Hello, there! You look beautiful today. I also hope you’re having a good day so far.

It’s been two weeks since my last post. No, I didn’t disappear off the face of the earth, if that’s something you’re wondering. After blogging consecutively for an entire year, I’m all written out. A little break is nice to have, but now we’re back to business. At least I hope so. I would hate to disappear again after finally getting a handle on this.

Nothing new happening here, so here are things I’m currently into:

Television

Black Mirror (Netflix)

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (Netflix)

Bates Motel (A&E)

Music

Darkness and Light -John Legend

Movies

La La Land

Okay, so it’s not an extensive list, but a list is still a list. It’s only the first month of 2017. There will be more new things to enjoy.

Have a fantastic weekend.

10- Countdown (Th.Th #42)

What’s up my people?

The final countdown begins! Only 10 more of these babies until my resolution is fully realized. That’s so crazy! A special thanks to anyone who has read thus far, no matter how boring some of these got to be. 

I can’t believe we’re almost done here. Speaking of, can we just skip over the next four years? I tried to watch the finsl debate, but I couldn’t do it. Either way, we’re heading for disaster, and I won’t apologize for it.

The United States isn’t the only thing going down. Stay with me as we get closer to 2017 because it’s about to be the GOOD kind of going down. This is real.

Let’s do this.

P.s, check out my new favorite lifestyle blog, We the Dreamers. It was created by singer Kate Voegele, who happens to be my favorite person ever. Pre-order her new album, Canyonlands, on iTunes or visit her official website for other fun stuff.

Xx again.

Never grow up (Th.Th #33)

Hello, darlings.

Some days I feel like I’m talking to no one here, but I suppose that’s one of the perks of blogging. I mean, I’m not looking for an audience or anything like that. I could be reaching out to just one person and that would be enough for me. This is part of my resolution and I enjoy it regardless.

Where has the entire summer gone? It’s been flying right on by. Soon, it will be fall and there will be pumpkin-flavored everything. Pumpkin is okay, but I’m more into the colors and the atmoshere. And crunchy leaves.

Lately, I’ve gotten into a science fiction podcast called The Bright Sessions about a therapist who specializes in the strange and unusual, and a web series called The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy, a modern day adaptation of Peter and Wendy by J.M. Barrie. 

I also got around to reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child a few days ago. It’s taking me right back to my childhood as if the characters are still with me. Back then, I could also finish a book in less than a day, but now life is in the way and it takes a little longer. My love for books will never go away. It’s part of the reason I decided to go into commununications along with my interest in writing.

Enjoy the day and make the best of all that is left of summer.

Love you all.

A magical time (Th.Th #32)

Hello and welcome to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

I’ll keep this short and sweet and it’s mostly because I don’t have time. This is a little late because I work the dreaded overnight shift and I didn’t want to lose too much sleep working on this. 

If you couldn’t guess from the greeting, I got my copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. If only I lived in London to see the play. In the mean time, I’ll just pretend.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” by J.K Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne (Simon & Schuster)
