My Self Care Routine

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Wednesday already and half way through the week. For today’s blog post I wanted to share my usual self care routine. Now since am a mom I dont get much time for myself to be honest so whenever I do get a chance I do these usual routines. Its important to get some time out of the day or week to have a little self care time I believe its healthy for us. And its extremely important of course for us mom because it helps us not lose ourselves in motherhood. Now the best brand for your care needs would be Farm House Fresh. They have the best products go check them out now!

Self Care

Shower Time

Now I know a shower is just a shower, but I love when I get time out. This is one of my best care times because I love doing a good body scrub. Right now I am currently using a caramel body scrub and I absolutely love it. Almost every time I get my time out to go shower I am using this. Another great tip I use that I actually found on Pinterest is a great shaving tip. If you are a shaver like me a great tip is to use Johnsons baby oil prior to shaving. In the shower and then your going to want to shave. This prevents ingrown hairs and helps get a better shave then shaving dry. This also helps hydrate your skin when you come out your legs will be so soft I promise yall!

Work Out

Working out is another great idea, I am going to be completely honest I hate to work out. After having two kids my tummy has not been looking to great. And I gave in to least try and change that. One of my revolutions was to least try and work out this year so I have been trying to. I have not been doing it on a regular but I try to whenever I have the energy. Its not as fast results but I am proud because we all have to start somewhere right.

Nails & Make up

Now another great thing we can do for ourselves is least get our nails done or get pretty for no reason. One thing I do whenever my husband is home is go and get my nails done! I love just having time out for me and have time to relax. And to be honest it feels pretty good I dont even care how much I spend on them. I do though always do my own toes at home. I dont trust nail salon tubs I just have heard to many horror stories in college since am a esthetican. However if I am not doing that another great thing that makes me feel good is make up. Sometimes we just need to put on some makeup, even if we not going out sometimes we need to do something for oursleves. I use to prior to baby number two always have time for this and now I rarely touch my box. I usually not even in the mood to put it out when I go out because I dont have the time. But I honestly want to get back into finding time, hopefully soon I can.

Breakfast

So I am not much a healthy eater but I always try to have breakfast in the mornings. My usual routine after dropping my oldest off at school is laying down with little one for awhile. Then when she goes down for her nap by 11:00 AM I am then usually hungry and go quickly make something. My usual : Eggs, Oatmeal, Toast, Banana, Waffles, Bagels with a cup of coffee.

Self Care

Down Time

Last but not least having some down time. As a mom I always make sure to get a break into the days and especially after the kids go to sleep. Throughout the day my down time usually consist of Netflex and some good online shopping or browsing. This helps me reflect relax a bit and rest my body. Even if your not a mother we humans are always on the go. Its always good to get a break in and relax a bit and gain some energy. If I honestly didn’t take any down time for myself I couldn’t have typed this post lol. By 6pm I usually dont have energy in me and cannot wait till 7pm – 8pm bedtime to finally get the whole night to myself. I am sometimes to exhausted and just need that whole time and night to regain my energy.

That is all for my self care routine, I hope you all found some of my tips useful. I am surprised I found energy to type this out tonight. But remember to squeeze in a little care through out your day we all need to be pampered. I feel like all of this is what least helps me and keeps me going. Thank you all for reading, please remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all. And if you haven’t checked out my last post you can do so HERE.

How “ The Ordinary “ brand benefits your skincare

Hey everyone! Happy Monday hope everyone is having a great start to their week and morning. For my first blog post for September I wanted to do a post on The Ordinary skincare brand. Due to the changing season this does cause for our skincare re gamin to change and our skin to change. If you would like to check out the brand you can find that HERE.

“The Ordinary skincare brand, is a collection of skincare treatments. These treatments are of clinical technologies to increase communication in the skincare industry. ” The Ordinary is a brand from DECIEM. We are an umbrella of brands focused on advanced functional beauty. Our team is specialized in materials chemistry and biochemistry, and we have brought pioneering innovation in skincare through our core brands, Hylamide and NIOD. “– The Ordinary

How The Ordinary Helps

For instance, one of the things I love about this brand is how it can help benefit your skincare. Did you know the brand can help you mix and match your products? I love how the brand helps by having a regimen guide on their site. The guide is there for everyone who needs suggestions in combining products into one whole regimen. Therefore implementing their skin guide can help with your AM and Pm steps. Help combine formulations to combat all your skincare needs and achieve you ideal skin goals. The ordinary holds a chart which can help you map out everything, they also help by giving skincare mix and match examples which is awesome! Need a regimen guide head over to the ordinary HERE.

In other words, the ordinary brand has stated about DECIEM products. Which they said is the parent company to the ordinary brand. All products go through safety testing which is great I feel like it feels great to buy from a brand you know their formulations are safe to apply to your skin. The products also do not test on animals and majority of their products are vegan. Need help with finding the right products for your skin? You can actually submit an inquiry to them and they can help you! In other words I’ve never came across a brand that can be this helpful. As an esthetican I feel like the brand comes off as a personal esthetican in your own home. The amount of help and affordable products their products is worth the buy to me.

How does it help me?

In conclusion, why not go with a brand that gives enough tools to help you a long the way in your skincare? One of the major issues I come across in the skincare field is clients walking in confused on how to start a proper regimen. Not everyone has the time and money to be honest to walk into a spa to be educated on how to start a good guide. The ordinary brand has started the easy way on how to get across to their clients and market a way to help you with your everyday skincare. And they have honestly sold me on this, I am planning on giving this line a try. If any of you have bought any of their products let me know! Thanks to everyone on reading today’s post, if you haven’t checked out my last you can find it HERE.

Blog Update

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I just wanted to do a quick blog update somewhat of what has been going on lately. This will sadly affect my blogging schedule and I wanted to let you guys know ahead of time.

This last weekend my laptop has officially gave away and won’t turn on, am assuming I need a new battery. But my laptop has had previous issues also other then the battery giving out so I am thinking of just purchasing a brand new one. At the moment I can’t say when I am purchasing it so for now I will not be putting up much blog posts due to this happening. I can still do everything from my phone like me putting this post up now but it’s not the same to properly edit before publishing. You will randomly see spontaneous posts uploading it’s if I can get a hold of a computer not completely sure. I also had been so busy these last few weeks trying to get things done and it’s been so physically and emotionally draining especially since Toronto has been having heat warnings. I hope soon I can slow down and also get a hold of buying a laptop.

In Conclusion ..

I also still have unpacking to do, and then am also running around doing errands and preparing for a vacation me and my husband is taking for our anniversary. So it’s a lot to take in but I wanted to make sure I put out a blog update post so everyone knows whats going on. These changes will maybe be going on for the rest of the summer, hopefully things get back to its original schedule soon. I will of course still be active on all my social media platforms which you can find here Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you all for understanding, I will do my best of course on uploading as much content I can. I really do not want to delay much postings I will go insane if I am behind so I will make out the best I can do in this situation. Thank you all for reading, please check out my latest post, Blog Q&A. See you all in my next post!

Your Blog Post Ideas

Hey everyone, welcome back to another post! I hope everyone had a great weekend and is having a great start to their morning. I can officially say I have moved and I am so happy to say that. So for today’s blog post is going to be different I have been sending out a few questions through my social media asking questions. I have been doing a lot of blog posts based on through inspiration and knowledge but I want to do something different.

I really want to put content out there that is going to help and benefit a lot of people, but also content that people would like to see or need more knowledge in even. This is also another chance for me to get to know my readers and engage with you all, I always love to hear from you all.

Why Blog Post Ideas?

Lately I have been trying to engage as much as I can with my fellow bloggers and also readers. One of the best things we can all do is connect with each other which is one of the best ways to gain a lot of things from. I have asked blog post idea questions over social media like what are some of your major skin concerns to get information from you all to do skincare posts . I have decided to do this because I would love to do blog posts on information that readers are looking for and would like to read. do you love beauty more? or fashion is your thing? Also like I have mentioned earlier I would love for you all to start asking me some questions.

Getting to know me

I would love to put more information about myself out there but I dont know exactly what you all would like to know now that I have moved I am slowly adjusting and getting back into my blog schedule. I am still trying to unpack and get organised so I will still be putting out blog posts but please bare with me for now if they are off days I do not post.

Thank you all for reading please leave any questions in the comments. Just be sure it is beauty, fashion or lifestyle related. I always love to hear from you all also please like and share ! See you all in my next blog hope you all continue to have a great Tuesday!

June Goals

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a great week. It’s the 5th of June and I am just now writing my June goals for the month, I have realized that I probably won’t have high expectations this month because of a lot going on. This month I am doing a lot of packing because I am getting ready to move, I am super excited for this move I am so ready to be leaving my apartment. I am ready to start a new chapter in my family life, also after this move I will be putting up more content and be even more consistent with my blog.

One of my goals are to consistently at least on my social media platforms. Especially Twitter and Instagram I want to increase my followings, be more engaging with my followers because before increasing numbers I at least want connections with my followers. My second goal is pretty similar to the first, I want to continue to improve my content with Instagram. I am always trying to put up the best quality of pictures on my instagram; one thing I believe in is if you don’t put out the best or least quality it can always lead to lack of following and engagement. I am always hearing this consistently when doing my research on social media containing being a blogger. My third and last goal is to work hard and increase my views on my blog, I feel like this will always be a goal every month for most bloggers I mean even if you got a thousand every month you want to push for two. Sometimes I feel like giving up on blogging but I remember it’s not about the numbers I started all this because I love it. Soon enough my numbers will grow, heck today I made it to more views ! I am getting somewhere and I feel proud of it.

And there you have it three of my big goals for the month of June, its always hard to keep up with blogging especially being a mom and a wife but I feel like setting goals for yourself every month helps motivate you even more. I hope this blog helps in some way, thank you all for reading, sorry if my blogs seem short I am trying to put out posts while dealing with a move and kids running around. There will be a post up Friday morning at 9am EST standard time so look out for that! Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you !
