Blog Party!!!

Hello everyone! I just want to start by saying THANK YOU to all my amazing followers. You guys are the best πŸ™‚ (And if you’re new here, welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by!)

Today is exciting, because I have decided to host my first blog party πŸ™‚ I hope this all works out as I didn’t do anything fancy…just opened my commenting section to you all!

Blog parties have been a great way for me to meet other awesome bloggers as well as get my own blog out into the community. It has really helped, and so I want to thank all of the people who have done one of those for doing them. Now I want to share this wonderful experience with all of you, so I hope you enjoy!

Here are the some things to think about:

  1. Share a link and tell us about yourself and your blog πŸ™‚
  2. Please don’t leave more than one link at a time. If you want to leave another link, please do that in another comment.
  3. For every link you leave, try to check someone else out. Spread the love!
  4. If you want, feel free follow me! πŸ™‚ I love meeting new people and I would love to have you join me here on my blog. I love sharing things with you all!

Okay…I hope I covered everything. Share links, meet new people, and have fun! Looking forward to seeing how this goes!

Natural Ways To Get Better When You’re Sick

Hey, hey! Hope you are having a great weekend! I’ve been fighting a nasty cold, and decided to share with you some things I do to help relieve and heal my body while I’m sick. Hopefully, you are not in this situation now :), but if you are then I hope this will help you get better quickly!

One of the first things to do is to start drinking liquids. Tea and water are the best! This Throat Coat tea is good as well as green tea and peppermint tea. Drinking orange juice is also good for the vitamin C.

Next, I apply LOTS of essential oils πŸ™‚ Peppermint, Thieves, Eucalyptus, etc. I rub them on with jojoba oil onto my neck, chest, ears (if they hurt), and forehead. I use Young Living Oils.

Eat PLENTY of healthy food. Don’t get me wrong, packaged chicken noodle soup, jello, and juice are delicious, but be sure to include fruits and veggies into your diet.

REST! REST! REST! This is so important. Sleep on the couch. Your bed. The living room chair. Wherever! But rest is so important, and will help your body heal quicker. (If you’re tired of sleeping but can’t get up and do much, watching your favorite is always an option :))

Take lots of hot showers and baths. This feels really good and helps relax your achy muscles. Plus, feeling clean and having freshly washed hair makes you feel better.

Obviously, there are many other ways to help get rid of sickness, but these are a couple of the main things I do to help my body recover and heal.

What is your favorite way to help yourself get better? Comment below and share your tip below! I’d love to hear about it!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

5 Must-Have Beauty Products I Love

Hey, hey! Today I wanted to share with you five beauty products I love. Sometimes it’s nice to have couple go-to products, and these are great start. I have personally tried all five of these beauty items, and definitely recommend you try them out! (These are not affiliate links…just products I love and hope you enjoy!

Obviously, having clear skin makes applying make-up easier. It also means that you might not have to wear as much make-up but still achieve smooth skin. So first I will share two face products I love.

This is what I love using for cleansing and helping my acne-prone skin. Ideally, I would apply this both morning and night, but I try to at least do it at night.

 

 

 

 

Burt's Bees Sheer Body Lotion - Clementine and Calla Lily - 8 ozFor “moisturizer” I just use this lovely lotion. It smells great, and with the mist attachment, it’s easy to control the amount you’re applying. I also love other Burt’s Bees products. πŸ™‚ Ideally, I would be using an actual face moisturizer, but for now, this works good.

 

 

 

 

Personally, I do not love wearing foundation. I have never gone out and bought a super fancy brand, and some are better than others, but even still, it’s not my favorite beauty product.

First of all, I don’t love the feeling. When I apply foundation, it makes my face feel weighed down and plastered. Secondly, It always seems to make my face break out which is what I’m trying to avoid by using the facial products listed above.

COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder Foundation Soft Honey 155, .39 ozSo instead of foundation, I try to keep my face looking clean and use powder instead. To be honest, I haven’t tried many powders because I love the one I’m using right now. To be fair though, I do sometimes cover up some red spots with a concealer, but I mainly stick to powder. I’ve been loving this brand.

 

 

 

L'OrΓ©al Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes Lengthening Mascara, Black, 0.33 fl. oz.Next, I will share what mascara I have been using. This stuff is water-proof, stays on (really well :)), and helps achieve a thicker lash. If you’re in a hurry and you’re looking for a quick mascara that will wake up your eyes a bit, this works great!

 

 

 

 

 

And lastly, I love lip glosses and sticks. I vary a lot in what color and type of lip color I use. Sometimes I wear a light raspberry color, sometimes it’s a purple pink tone, and other times it’s just a light shine. Since I go back and forth so much, maybe I’ll have a post just for lip colors πŸ™‚ Instead, I’m going to share a pretty lip color I hope to try soon. I was introduced to it through Kate at The Small Things Blog. Don’t forget to check out her post and video here where I first found the lip color! Here is the lipstick. (Sorry…no picture to easily transfer over here, but just click the link to see it!)

And there you have it! I hope you’ll check out (and try!) these great beauty products. These have proved to be great for me, and so I wanted to share them with you. There are more products I love, but I thought this would be a great start.

What is your favorite go-to product? Please comment below and let me know! Also, be sure to let me know what you think of these products if you have ever tried any of them. I’d love to hear from you!

As always, hope you have a great day, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
