Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe it’s literally in the middle of the week already. This week for me so far has been overwhelming but I will make it. I haven’t been feeling well just yesterday I have been fighting to rest and literally forgot about today’s post, I literally came up with this post and stayed up past 10 trying to make this post so bare with me. For today’s post I wanted to share how I plan my blog posts, how I organise just the planning out process. I am happy I came up with a system especially with being a wife and having a five year old and a baby but this system works for me.

So first things first, I just want to make a disclaimer that my system doesn’t have to work for everyone but then again it can end up working for someone so it’s all on your schedule. So I schedule all Mondays and Wednesday only and I do not post on social media on Saturday or Sunday’s because I am always busy on the weekends. So literally how I organize everything is on those days only, so Saturday and Sunday I brainstorm and will go on WordPress in drafts and type out all the potential blog posts I’d want to do and just literally sit and type out as many as I can get out. If I am having writers blog what I do is go onto Pinterest type “blog ideas” and read through potential ideas I love and I might change it up a bit to suite my blog and I still sit there and type out as much ideas as possible. Ok so I got my ideas down next I delete all the posts I am not feeling and clear them, when I decide what I will post I use Saturday and Sundays to type out my Monday post. If I have time after I finish and schedule Monday post I will write my intro for Wednesday post this helps me a step further in planning.

As soon as it’s Monday and my post goes up I use Tuesday to write and prepare for my Wednesday post. And if am stuck which I shouldn’t be because I literally type out all my blog ideas so I barely get stuck. I choose which post id want to do and type that out, and schedule it for Wednesday morning. I find Tuesday is less time for me to prepare for a post but since I prepare a lot over the weekend it helps in some way. After Wednesday I am back to doing the same system over again ..

Blog ideas

Draft posts

Type posts

Schedule

If you do this often around your blog schedule you would have enough posts possibly for the month and also never get stuck and have writers block. Also having your posts drafted already and half way typed out saves you huge amounts of time. Sometimes I have about 3 posts at a time intro already typed out or more and I could get about two posts already scheduled and up. The only thing to get in my way of my posting schedule is of life takes over and I don’t have time to do this process, and I end up having to miss a day of posting. But overall I literally do this over and over throughout the weeks, I just incorporated tailwind into my method I am still trying to get a hang of using it and figuring it out. But so far I am liking it, tailwind helps put aloe with my posting and hopefully it helps increase my blog traffic. It has helped so far with me just putting pins through out the day to my Pinterest but if you guys would like to know me check it out here.

I hope my method of blog posting has helped you all in some way or another or maybe my whole system is easy for you either way I hope I made your job easier. Thank you all for reading, remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all! Next scheduled post will be up Monday at 9am EST time. Also forgot to mention this is my 100th blog post! yay!

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to another blog post ! Lucky you this week getting posts back to back. I am so excited to do this post as it is a product line I have tried awhile back and it doesn’t get out there much also because not much people know of it. But this is a line that can pretty much relate to everyone and to be honest its a pretty fun line.

Farm house fresh is a founded brand from its name of course, their ingredients is made from their fresh grown ingredients on the farm. This brand is a natural based skin care brand their farm house is based in the united states, 99.6% of the ingredients are healthy and fresh. Story behind the brand itself !

All About Farmhouse Fresh

Being such an interesting brand, even for the green beauty space, the story behind FarmHouse Fresh is one to hear. Like many small, indie brands, FarmHouse Fresh was created with one flagship product that went on to become the cornerstone of a full line of skin care products. Just over 10 years ago, FarmHouse Fresh launched an exfoliation trio with sea salt as the main ingredient. This exfoliation system was developed by FarmHouse Fresh founder Shannon McLinden to heal cracked heels. It was that one simple product that launched FarmHouse Fresh to almost instant success after it snagged a coveted feature on Oprah’s O-List. That achievement was just one of many with FarmHouse Fresh products scoring numerous nods from esteemed publications like Elle, Southern Living Magazine, and Redbook.

So aside from the fact that FarmHouse Fresh literally uses farm fresh ingredients, there are many things that make this brand so unique. FarmHouse Fresh princes itself on being a USA made product that specially crafts each and every one of its growing skin care line. Their message of farm life and freshness goes beyond their skin care products as evidenced by just a quick tour around their site. You’ll see that FarmHouse Fresh is dedicated to their farm and all the animals that live there.  – FarmHouseFresh 


Farm house fresh has collection of face, body, fragrance and bath products. They carry oils, exfoliates, lotions, creams, moisturisers, soaks, cleansers and much more. Farm house fresh boy oils are perfect to moisturiser the skin after a nice bath or shower, the unique formulation they have is created to lock in moisture. The oils each have a formulation of blended oils and each farm house fresh oil is 99.6% natural formulation. To achieve the best results with the oil is best to drop in a bath or just apply right after a shower. The farm house fresh lotions they have has a great formulation like aloe, shea butter that benefit the skin. They have a number of different scents like back country caramel, fresh melon, ginger sorbet and sweet cream.

The first time I ever tried this brand was back in college when I was studying spa management and this was sold in the college spa, and I personally was hooked on this brand. There products smell so good I purchased the melon scrub with vodka in it and the back country caramel lotion, that lotion was my all time favourite I must say. If you are looking for the all time organic brand that does the job and smells great this would be the one. I love how farm house fresh does their scrubs, their bourbon bubbler is infused with brown sugar and real Kentucky whiskey.

There is a watermelon basil vodkatini, which is watermelon, organic vodka and basil. This has watermelon seed oils with sugar and rice bran for a great exfoliation. The rasmopolitan which is raspberry and vodka, and sugar with rice bran oil. The raspberry extract and the vitamin E in it help hydrate the skin and the salt and sugar help lift away any dead skin cells on the skin. The brand has a great variety of products, you can look at here on their site Farmhousefreshgoods.com. I hope I had the answer to all your cleansing, exfoliating and skin needs if you would like to know more have some time to visit their site. Thank you for reading I hope you all have a great rest of our Wednesday ! Look out for Monday post which will be posted at 9am EST.

Good afternoon everyone! and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday I hope everyone is having a great day so far? Here we are half way through the week already. For today blog post we will be digging into skincare and talking about a big issue for a lot of people, I’ve noticed working in the skin industry which is acne. For this post we will be looking into skin and at different segments to understand how skin works and the steps needed to diminish acne scaring.

So first things first the questions we always ask ourselves “how does acne scaring start?” and “why does it almost always leave a scar?” well now to answer these questions. There is different types of scaring their not all the same but acne scars most occur when acne occur and it is irritated before time. From picking to popping when it is not ready or it is inflamed or even when touching your face all the bacteria from you fingers get onto your skin this can lead to scaring, the best thing to do is to leave it alone and find the best products to assist your skin.

So the question now “how do I diminish my scars”, well to be honest with you all this is not going to just go over night. I can be honest again and tell you if you start with this and keep doing it you will see results, I am one to say it works I did have a few scars and now my face is pretty clear. We all know we always have dead skin cells on our skin and new skin cells are produced, and to get the cycle going and make sure we are on top of removing old skin cells the key to that is to always exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! This process removes the dead skin off your body and allows new skin cells to come, this is so important because the more you exfoliate the more overtime your pigmentation on your face will slowly but surely go. Make sure you know your skin type also this would help you determine in what exfoliate to get and also how many times a week to exfoliate and help you start a skin regimen. Keeping up this process will start shedding away those scars and your face will start glowing, and trust me your skin will thank you.

The next thing you want to keep up is your products, its not recommended to exfoliate and not apply product afterwords or even sunscreen/sunblock. When exfoliated your skin is exposed to the sun and pollution. Other ways of removing acne scars a bit of a faster way and skipping some steps for the process is more costly but someone who tried it I would recommend. The first one is having micro-dermabrasion done, this is a technique which someone is working with crystals. The top of the skin is peeled, this is a type of exfoliation on the skin which allows the skin to renew process (this treatment does not hurt lol) . I have had this treatment done more than once and given this treatment more than once I highly recommend this one. The next treatment which is great is chemical peels this is a treatment used to improve the appearance of your face, neck and even hands. So a mixture of a chemical fluid is applied to your face and this exfoliates the skin and causes the skin to soon peel off, and the new skin then comes through and is much more smoother. The next is laser skin resurfacing, its a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a laser to improve the appearance of the skin. This treatment treats minor facial flaws, by removing thin layers of the skin.

There is more medical treatments that’s can help improve the appearance of the skin, but of course I cannot go on and on. But for advice id recommend buying your favourite exfoliate and exfoliating as much as needed and following up with products and serums. That is it for Wednesday post there will be a new post up Monday, remember to comment & like even post questions I love always hearing from you all! I hope you have a great rest of your Wednesday.

Good morning everyone! And welcome to another blog post. I am excited because today I can finally get two blog posts out for this week, I finally have settled on a schedule I can work with to get back to being consistent. For today’s post I decided to do a post on make up application, tomorrow is finally Christmas and its the best time to put out a make up post. From since having my blog I get questions on make up and lash application, I’ve also get tons of questions away from my blog. I decided to do a post make up application step by step for those who would like ideas on the application process.

  1. Skin Perpetration –  If its one thing I had learn while I was studying to become an esthetican it was that our face is the base to any make up application. So if you want a smooth glowing make up application it starts with the face. Another great thing to learn is that every girl wants that perfect application but if you suffer from skin issues example severe oily skin, breakouts, pimples, dry skin and dont treat these issues and cover it up I am letting you know it wont help. Everything underneath needs to be treated first before covering it up, if its not then you wont get the perfect foundation you need for putting on a great application.
  2. Products made for you! – One big mistake I noticed a lot of girls and older women do that hey I even have done is buy products not for you. Now to get a great application you also have to get the products your skin needs and to also make your application last longer. Your probably wondering ” But how do I know what my skin needs?” well we would need to analyse our skin and get to know it. But there is a difference between “Skin Type” and “Skin Condition”, everyone has a skin type but not everyone has a skin condition. The difference between skin type and condition is conditions can be dehydration, dryness, sun damage, hyper pigmentation ,wrinkles and acne. Which skin types are normal, dry, oily, combination and sensitive. When we start getting to know what our skin needs and is lacking we will then have a better understanding of what make up and skin care to buy.
  3. The Right Products – Okay! So you studied your skin, next would be buying the right skin products and make up for your skin. We all love recommending the next best product that came out but do we ever ask our self “Wait! is it for my skin!?” and then we wondering why our foundation is turning orange or why this foundation is making your skin oily. The next step would be to buy the right skincare and picking out the right products either it be Sephora or MAC.
  4. Products – When buying the right products it serves good to your skin when you either a make up lover (like myself) or occasionally wear make up. Buying the right foundation, primer, setting powder and moisturiser make a big deal when its made for your skin it makes your application come out flawless and lasting so much longer. Also a bonus to doing this is one your skin will love you and second your skin will less break out give problems because your using products that is helping your skin while getting to wear as much make up as you would like.

Using these four tools will help you with your make up application process, when applying anything over your skin you want the base to be looking great for whatever that goes on top to look great. Look at everything like this, if you have a lot of acne or dry patches and old skin cells on your skin and you dont properly wash you face or prep it for make up and just apply your make up will come out uneven and looking dull and wouldn’t last that long. You 100% want to remember to always have a perpetration before anything, your skin will start to allow improvements. I hope all this info helps, I will soon make a second half to this post on the actually make up application process. Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you all. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a great rest of your day!
