Wash Your Make Up Brushes

Image
I cannot tell you how many times I have written an article regarding the cleanliness of makeup brushes. I will give you three guesses and the first two do not count, on who is the number one violator of her own words, that's right, me! Oh it's awful, because I get busy and like everyone else I forget to do it. I have sensitive skin and light to moderate rosacea so I am a prime example of those who can get skin irritation from filthy brushes. The brushes will not even apply makeup correctly if they are corroded and filled with makeup that is built up over time! There is a huge amount of bateria that will naturally also build up on your brushes from skin cells and pollution that is naturally or un naturally found on your skin. **Look how dirty mine are** Especially that sponge applicator, By the way they truly are disposable and if they start to shred or come apart, they definitely need to be tossed. Now a lot of the top makeup gurus and dermatoligists say to wash make up br

Pickle Chips Keto Style

Image
So you need a simple,quick, and easy snack recipe and it has to be Keto-friendly? Oh I have a great little snack that takes about 10 minutes to prepare and to bake and you'll just love them. These treats are something a bit different but will keep you satisfied and in ketosis. (I'm that person who is FOMO) Really, I am missing out and if one intends to stay with the keto lifestyle, you have to give yourself little easy snacks that you can much on while everyone is opening a bag of chips and dip in front of you. This recipe isn't just good for keto, anyone at all can eat these and love them. Preheat your oven between 375-400 degrees (oven times vary) For this recipe I will be using a regular sized muffin tin pan, one can use the mini-muffin maker and I would set the oven on only 375 degrees. Also, one caveat, you also have to love pickles! For this recipe I am using dill pickles. Pre-cut coin size pickles work great for this recipe, but I didn't have any on-hand s

Deconstructed Jean Jacket

Fashion is about style. Fashion changes often, but each time fashion changes they don't invent a new wheel; fashion just evolves and is embellished upon what came before it. For this post i'm taking my decent but outdated denim jean jacket and I'll be updating it by decontructing it. I've owned this jean jacket quite a long time and I'm gauaranteeing that I have worn it only once. Hopefully once done with this project, I'll love to wear this jacket with every outfit. This is an easy craft to do, especially since there is no sewing involved. Denim that is 100% cotton frays like a dream. If you are thrifting an item, try to make sure to look for 100% cotton so that your deconstruction project will be easy. I decided that once I saw these particular designer denim jackets with similar styling (i.e. two pockets on chest, that I could "match" them). I was also astonished at the prices for these deconstructed jean jackets were going for! (see my pho

Hello Activated Charcoal Toothpaste Review #brushhappy

I wanted to jump on real quick and let in on my latest review. I used Hello Activated Charcoal Toothpaste for two weeks and I did really like it! It tastes well and doesn't have that huge chemical taste as other pastes do. I thought that it did clean my teeth very well and even whitened them natually without that bleachy kind of look of all others. I am glad I was able to participate in this reivew. I give this a full 5 stars for the products effectiveness, and ease of use. One point as noted from my funny picture below, is you do have to get used to the black look in your mouth! *****NOW THATS A SILLY SELFIE***** But if you are looking for "cleaner" type products I'll share a link down below with you. (I receive no endorsement from this mention) Contains No flouride, and had coconut oil, and mint in it.It contains no sulfates,no peroxide,no artifical sweeteners, and no dyes.
