I feel so bad for not posting for this long! Lately I've been sick so I'm not really sure what to post about except that I find that doing normal things while sick, helps me feel better. Like wearing normal clothes, not pajama clothes that swaddle me. I didn't wear make up because I have pink eye and that can transfer the germs. But for the most part, I find acting normal helps me feel normal. Although taking medicine and eating soup is the best thing you can do.

I have combination skin; which means I have normal skin on most of my face but I get oily in the T-zone. So lately after I shower, I apply cocoa butter to my face. I use a stick because it's easier to apply and keeps my fingers from getting all buttery! And when I wake up, the butter has soaked in(or rubbed off) and my skin is soft. Sometimes I have to rub in the butter that's on my upper lip and in the corners of my nose but for the most part, it's great! I totally recommend it! I feel like it moisturizes my face and seals in the good oils; keeps my face from drying out. Which lately I've noticed; I'm guessing from the winter air(ugh). I think that people with oily skin, it might either be really good or really bad.
Bye, more tips later!

 I got my hair thinned! Yay! And my ends trimmed, which is great because I haven't had my hair worked on in a a year I think. And apparently the flakes in my hair isn't dandruff. It's shampoo residue! So excited about this because I have tried multiple products to get rid of my 'dandruff' but it never worked. Now I know why. So according to my new hairdresser, I really have to scrub my head so I can get the residue out. We also purchased this shampoo and conditioner by Redken. She shampooed my hair, trimmed it, thinned it, and blow dried it. I'm considering blow drying my hair now because my hair is sooooo soft. I've been touching it ALL day. She also parted it on a different side. Which for me, normal is parted in the middle; but she parted it a little to the left. I think I'm going to try this look. I went to Hair Cuttery and I am sooo happy!
What do you do when you go to the salon?

I am so happy with myself. The last three days. I have really been putting effort into my outfits. I even tried out a new outfit today after I got home; it looks pretty good on me.
Anyways, I though I'd share some things.
Yesterday, as I was getting ready for bed, I noticed my bottle of Aveeno soothing lavender body wash. I decided that I would wash my hands with it so that I would smell it all night. It was so nice smelling.
Also, I've been getting dry patches on my face; so when I get ready in the morning, I apply cocoa butter to my face. It can be greasy feeling but then it protects my face from wind and prevents me from touching my face: ergo transferring oils, making acne. This morning I noticed my feet were especially dry and cracked from the winter. So I decided to take body lotion (because it's so thick and moisturizing) and applied it to my feet, and put my socks on; going through my day like normal. And when I took my socks off after school, my feet were softer.

So today, I finally went back to school. I decided I wanted to show off a little but not be over dressed. So I wore:

  • Fuzzy Ugg ankle boots
  • Black skinny jeggings
  • White & gray striped t-shirt with small lace breast pocket
  • A square orange scarf 
  • Diamond studs
  • Silver bracelet

I'm not the type of person who wear's gobs and gob's of make-up. I like to think of wearing make-up as smoothing out the (metaphorical) wrinkles; and when you cake your face in make-up, it's like you're changing the fabric (of your face). I don't think I'm gorgeous but I think everyone has natural beauty; they just have to use the right products to bring it out. I only wear Burt's Bee's pomegranate chapstick, Cover Girl Nature Luxe mascara, and Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus midnight blue eyeliner. I wanted to use a slightly colored eyeliner because I wanted to make my eyes pop. My eyeliner is the crayon kind where you twist it out. I use Clearasil tinted acne cream because it gets rid of bumps and it acts like a concealer. I only dab it on my nose (my trouble area) and whenever I get a random pimple.
How much make-up do you where?

I am now officially in love with Lush products. I have never used them but I am in love. I plan on buying the Lush No Drought dry shampoo because I go to school and I just don't have time to take a shower in the morning along with curling my hair and doing my little bit of make up. I want to buy the Toothy Tabs and maybe some massage bars because they sound great and I like to pamper myself. Speaking of pampering, today I used both a Mint Julep mask and a clay mask. I prefer the mint over the clay persoanlly. Maybe because it feels so refreshing or the fact that it fights acne. I don't get pimples usually, and I'd like to keep it that way. My only problems spots are my T-zone (I get oily there and only bumps on my nose), and around my lips; like the little place above your upper lip but below your nose, and my chin. I'm not sure what it is, I just seem to get them there only. After I masked my face (and did dishes while they dried, multitasking!), I used my three-step face thing. I'm considering skipping the dry shampoo and getting a few Lush facial masks instead. I might just wait for the masks and use my birthday money to get them. Luckily, I have a few Lush stores only and hour away (ok that's a little far but so worth it!). I feel like the Cosmetic Warrior would be perfect for me. Some people hate the smell of garlic but I love it.....and I also love onions! What a mouth-disaster! See, this is why I need Lush Toothy Tabs; so I don't scare guys away with my yummy garlic-onion breath. JK those scents combined aren't to yummy smelling. So anyways: do you guys have any homemade masks? And what are your feelings on Lush products?
