One Scent Woman—Finding Your Signature Fragrance

Growing up, many of us drenched ourselves in cheap body sprays and heavily scented lotions. Bath & Body Works items lined my bathroom counter, as I recall the scents of sweet pea and warm vanilla sugar filling the room. Where we once trailed down the drugstore beauty isle in search of glitter spray, we are now choosing more intricate scents. Being a young adult woman, I now understand how fragrance is synonymous with womanhood. The perfume you select represents you; it is your calling card to everyone you encounter and a scent remembered by those you love. With the wide selection sold…

Winter Bath Survival Guide

As the air grows crisp, wintertime brings unwanted gifts of muscle pain, lower immunity, and increased fatigue. Our golden-bronzed summer glow is merely an echo fading away, leaving us with dehydrated, worn skin. Although you are experiencing the depressing side effects of vitamin D withdrawal, one  way for rehabilitation is by soaking in a relaxing, hot bath. A soak in the tub is no longer about leisure, as it is a survival tactic during these frosty months. Baths can be very relaxing and therapeutic; they’re a luxurious way to revitalize parched, wearied winter skin. 5 Tips to Achieve the Perfect Bath →…

At Home Facial – Tips For Gorgeous Skin

I’ve combined knowledge obtained from previous professional facials, YouTube videos, and various credible books and websites to provide a step-by-step process in giving you a spa-like facial at home. Whereas a typical facial can cost anywhere between $150-$250, this mini facial can be done for a third of that price (ballin’ on a budget). Whether you simply want to pamper yourself or are seeking the many benefits facials can offer your skin, I personally suggest giving yourself one once a week. A professional facial is not necessary for someone in their early 20’s unless you have major skin concerns (as…

Below are a few of my favorite products for the summer of 2015!

DIY Organic Coffee Scrub

What inspired me to make a natural coffee scrub is the Frank Body coffee scrub. I didn’t want to pay $15 plus shipping to receive something I could just make at home! I love the smell of coffee and certainly love drinking it so why not make a scrub? After looking up a few recipes online, I created my own and thought I would share it. The caffeine from coffee used on your skin can reduce the appearance of cellulite and give your skin a firmer look! The cinnamon helps remove bacteria from your skin and the coffee will exfoliate…

DIY Organic Chapstick

This summer is all about getting my mind and body healthy! Since my last trip to Colorado in March, I’ve had a growing infatuation with natural products. Rarely do we think about how certain products we use on our body absorb into our skin. Although they may smell good, like peonies or Japanese cherry blossoms, we don’t think about the chemicals used and how they can affect us. I’ve switched many of my facial products, body lotions, body scrubs, and even toothpaste to natural brands that are more safe and gentle on my skin. Today I decided to share with…
