  So I might've been irresponsible on my recent family vacation and gotten a little too much sun on my face. It's not like don't know better; I just lost track of time playing in the ocean with my niece and nephew (sue me; they're cute). Sure enough, my mom pointed out my lobster face to me a few hours later in the condo. Luckily, I had my Karen's Botanicals Rehydrating Aloe Vera Lotion in my toiletry bag and went to the bathroom right away to tend to...

1. Big Towel- Who will be there to comfort you when your upper lip won't stop sweating or you get sand in that cut on your foot? Big towel, that's who.

2. Beach Bag- Because you'll obviously need somewhere to put your folded towel and the items to follow.

3. Books- Reading is like...

Those of you who have been reading the blog for a while might remember that my friend and former roommate, Selena, once guest reviewed Karen's Botanicals Fennel Sage Toner. At the time, my skin was pretty dry overall and I intentionally avoided the toner Selena loved since it's meant for normal to oily skin. My skin has since ventured into combination territory, though, and when I recently received a complimentary bottle of the Fennel Sage Toner to try, I all but...

  While I had fun experimenting with the oil cleansing method (as well as moisturizing with a mixture of oils), I can honestly say that I'm glad to be using my old favorites again--Karen's Botanicals Perfect and Gentle Cleansing Lotions. With these guys, I don't have to worry about proportions or adjustment periods...and sometimes leaving out the guesswork is just what I need. For those of you who are interested, the mixture of oils I used was equal parts grape seed and castor oils...

Caitie's recent November Used It post inspired me to do one of my own. It's my very first, and it's a little late, but here I go anyway.

  From Left to Right: Captain Blankenship Mantra Perfume Sample- I ran out of this dreamy sample almost immediately. After Jana heard about how much I liked this particular scent, she kindly offered to send me my own roll-on for free! My Christmas list just got a little shorter. Wash the Day Away Calming Chamomile Facial Elixir- Since...

I love having soft feet and polished toes, but I do not love paying a stranger $20+ to touch all over my feet (not to mention all the harsh ingredients in the creams, scrubs, and polishes most nail salons use). To avoid this awkward, pricey, and potentially hazardous situation, I gathered all the necessary supplies and gave myself a pedicure just in time for the beach. If you too would like to fancy up your feet at home, I've provided a picture of the supplies I used and a list of the steps I took below.
