Sunday Home Inspo Series

Happy Sunday!

I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend so far.

I spent the majority of my weekend catching up on my favorite Netflix shows, OITNB, and i’m a huge Netflix documentary fanatic, so those included.

Before this upcoming week rolls around, I felt like I needed much R + R, and so I did just that!

Here’s a little Sunday home inspo for you….

Go Back To School With Schick – Be Campus Ready!

It’s so crazy to think that around this time, it’s already time to start going back to school. Where has the summer gone? Where on earth does time go?

If it’s one thing that I personally miss, it’s going to high school, and going to college. People use to tell me all of the time, that those were the BEST years of my life, and I never seemed to want to listen, I rushed through my classes in college, and always took advantage of Senior Privileges in high school.

Looking back on those years now, I really wish that I would have taken my time going through school, and really taken advantage of the time I spent in high school, and when I went to college. If you’re still in high school or college, BE SURE TO SERIOUSLY CHERISH THOSE MEMORIES, because once those years are gone, you’re on your own.

The only thing that I didn’t like about those years is that I was on a SERIOUS budget. I’m talking about eating Ramen almost 3-4 times a week, and having my mom send me care packages.

Yesterday, I was ecstatic though because I heard that Schick was offering ‘Buy one get one free‘ razors in Walmart, and us girls ( and guys ), know that this is a COLLEGE MUST HAVE.

I ended up choosing the ‘Schick Quattro‘ razors for women, since I had the ‘Buy one get one free’ coupon.

They also had plenty of razors for men such as the Schick Hydro 5, and the Schick Xtreme3 Ultimate razor, and these razors as well, qualify for the Walmart ‘Buy one get one free‘ promo.

The Cutest Little Cards And The Most Thoughtful Gift | Flaunt Cards

When it comes to a birthday or special occasion, the most thoughtful gift that you can always give somebody is a card.

I personally feel like cards are always much more thoughtful then an actual gift itself.

One of my favorite places to online shop for homemade greeting cards, has recently been “Flaunt Cards“.

My Personal Thoughts On Turning The Big 25

unnamed (2)

As I am turning 25 next Tuesday, I figured that I would write down, and share with you all my own personal thoughts and feelings about turning the big 2-5.

When I automatically think about turning 25, the first thing that comes to my mind is, that I am closer then ever to being 30, and that scares me, just a wee little bit.

Also, these thoughts come to my mind:

Should I be getting married soon?

Should I at least be getting engaged soon?

Am I going to be married by the time i’m 40 with no kids?

Where is my life going? What am I doing?

H E L P 

Then I start going into ‘instant panic mode’.

Somebody please tell me that these kind of thoughts went through your mind when you hit your mid-twenties? Is this what they call your ‘mid life crisis’ ?

There is no doubt that my year of being 24 has certainly had it’s own ups and downs, and somehow the older I get, the more I end up finding myself drifting into my own little world, and doing my own thing. Maybe that’s because I moved away at 18 years old, live in a totally different state than the state I grew up in? I’m honestly not even sure.

It’s until I  finally have to remind myself that everyone lives life at their own pace, and at their own speed. That certain people in your life aren’t going to be there for you forever. You’re bound to make right and wrong mistakes, no matter how much you don’t want to make any mistakes. This is just how life works and how it is, and we all have to face it.

unnamed

As I found myself going through bins of old pictures last night, there is no joke that both of my parents literally have thousands of pictures in these bins, I began to get a tad emotional.

It’s so crazy to me how fast we all grow up, and how much something can change in such a short time.

Life is extremely precious, and we always have to remember to enjoy every moment.

I’m nervous to see what the year of being 25 brings me, but i’m also very excited to see what unexpected or expected things come my way.

unnamed

I’m looking forward to continuing building the blog, as well as working on myself.

I want to step outside of my comfort zone, and try things that I’ve never tried before, or normally wouldn’t try.

Even though 25 gives me the vibe of, “Okay Heather, now it’s REALLY time to grow up!”, I am over the moon excited to see what life throws my way.

This Girl Is Getting Married | Steal Whitney Ports Bachelorette Weekend Style

To be honest, who wasn’t a fan of ‘The Hills’, or ‘The City’ growing up?

When I was growing up in Ohio, all I would watch was The Hills because it seemed like a dream watching it, at least that is what it felt like growing up in a small town, where everything was just slow and boring.

Now, it being what seems like forever since both shows have been on the air, at some point in our lives, we all grow up.

So, with that being said, one of my favorite city gals, Whitney Port, currently celebrated her Bachelorette weekend in style!

I’m all about her entire look, and i’m sure that you are too!

Talkin All About Rocksbox A Monthly Favorite Of Mine

I am one that is an addict to any kind of monthly subscription box, especially when it comes to a beauty or fashion category.

I recently stumbled upon, Rocksbox, which is now, one of my personal favorite accessory subscription boxes.

Just imagine UNLIMITED DESIGNER JEWELRY each and every month!

unnamed (1)

When my box came in the mail the other day, I was basically ‘freaking out’, before I even opened the box.

The best part about Rocksbox though, unlike any other subscription box, is that you can actually wear the jewelry for as long as you want, and then when you get tired of it, you just return the box for new jewelry!

Each box comes with a maximum of 3 jewelry pieces per box.

The 3 pieces that came in my box were:

  • Ring: Gorjana: Messa Crossover Ring
  • Necklace: Urban Gem: Paisley Necklace
  • Earrings: Kendra Scott: Dee Earrings In Rose Quartz

My Thoughts On Korean Skincare With Peach & Lily

I’ve always been a major fan of skincare in general.

I always use multiple skincare products in the morning when I wake up, and I also use a few favorite products at night for my skin, before I go to bed.

When you’re in your twenties, especially, it’s really important to take care of your skin, before you hit the older digits, and it’s really important to know what products work for your skin, and what products don’t work.

So, with that being said, i’ve always been super curious about different types of skincare in other countries. Say, you’re traveling to Japan, and their all out of your favorite ‘Clean & Clear’ face wash, what do you do?

I’ve decided to provide my thoughts on a few Korean skincare products that I tried out from Peach & Lily.

I also have to admit, that I was just a little hesitant about trying the products with the ‘snail slime’ in them.

Here are the products that I gave a try:

1. HERB TEA BLEMISH MINUS CALMING MASK

cremor_herb_tea_mask

At first, I didn’t like that the mask was a little too slippery & slimey to put on, but I did adjust to it, when I put it on, and it suddenly gave me this ‘cool & calming’ effect. I left it on for about 15 minutes, and as soon as I took it off, it made my skin feel very relaxed, and ready for bed. Overall, this was one of my favorites.

2. SNAIL REPAIR EYE CREAM

Screen_shot_2015-06-02_at_8.31.43_PM

This was one of the products, that I was semi afraid to try because it actually contains 80% snail mucin, but as much as snail anything freaks me out, I found it quite interesting to learn that it also contains ‘Bee Venom‘. This had to of been my second favorite product, because I am one that LITERALLY hops on the ‘dark circles’ bus. Being on the computer at all hours of the day, drains me out, and makes me feel extremely tired. I used this product one night before I went to bed, and to my surprise, I noticed a seemingly increased difference in the dark circles that were under my eyes. The lines were gone, and it looked like I had slept an extra 4 hours. This also wakens me up, which I LOVE, since my eyes hurt all day long.

3. SEA DAFFODIL CLEANSING MOUSSE

Aromatica_SeaDaffodilCleansingMousse

I am one that gets very dry skin, if I don’t keep it hydrated and moisturized. I loved the fact that this cleansing mousse left my sensitive and dry skin feeling hydrated. It also exfoliated my dead skin cells without causing my skin to look irritated, because lets face it, that the majority of us girls, all have sensitive skin. I loved that this cleanser also included a few of my favorite ingredients such as: Lemon Peel Oil & Rosewood oil. This is a great product, especially for these summer months to keep your skin feeling hydrated.

4. MINI RAW SAUCE

img_6490_Final

When I first saw this Raw Sauce, I was unsure of exactly what it was, but I was excited to try it out. This Raw Sauce is actually 93% maple tree sap, and it has Asian herbal and fruit extracts to achieve healthier looking skin. Raw Sauce is the type of product that you would put on your skin, to make your skin feel much more nourishing.
