Facial Relationship

My favorite view in my house right now


It’ hard to see it in the picture but there are Christmas lights hidden in the plants. I was left with a long wire of Christmas lights after putting them on the window so I placed them through out the plants. When it is dark out it gives the living room a pretty decoration.

In other news, I had to get a facial the other day. 😦

So I am one of those people who has been ‘graced’ with blackheads, which means I have to get a facial every month. :/ I have pores that you could probably spot from Mars. As most people who frequent spas know facials are expensive so even though I say I need them every month it doesn’t mean that I actually get them every month. Last week, I was overdue for a facial (4 months) so I booked an appointment and watched my wallet cry as I handed over my money. I realized 5 things happen to me every time I get a facial.

  1. I am told I have a ton of blackheads(what a surprise?!)
  2. I start to feel like I have to sneeze as the blackheads are extracted
  3. I wonder if I should have just booked a massage
  4. I try to catch my breath everytime steam is placed on my face
  5. I wish they would change the music on the speakers

I have yet to find any cheap facial products to get rid of blackheads. Not to be negative or gross I just felt I needed to vent about my dislike of getting facials. I understand many people experience enjoyable ones and even are psyched to get one. I am aware that I am rare when saying I am not a fan. On the bright side, I am going to kettle bell this morning or as I call it “a quicker way to clog my pores” class. Tonight, I am going to my friend’s place to watch xmas movies and drink William Sonoma hot chocolate. 🙂



Mini Beauty World

Happy First Wednesday of the Year!

I am planning on going to Disney World with my bestie very soon! I have work and some other busy things to do before I go so I decided to go shopping this week for some main essentials for the trip. Part of my ‘New Year’s Resolution’ list is to be more organized. I figure if I start packing a bunch of days before the trip, then I won’t stress about packing the night before. I stress about packing even if it is for a one night trip in some small town in Connecticut.

I already own 3 bottles that hold 6 ounces of fluid so I was in search for something smaller. I prefer pouring shampoo and conditioner in tiny reusable bottles rather than buying miniature shampoo and conditioner bottles. I think the reusable bottles are way easier since they are bigger and it makes it cheaper for me. I once bought the miniature shampoo bottles for a 5 day trip and I ended up going through 2 bottles. I am only bringing a carry on for my trip so I had to buy a lot of miniature versions for my everyday beauty essentials.

My shopping list:

  • Three bottles that hold 3 ounces of liquid
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Steripod for my toothbrush

I found these adorable polka dot bottles from Conair. I am obsessed with polka dots so this felt like a huge win.



I put my astringent in the spray bottle.mini bottles

I put some emergency medicine in the mini green dot case.

I use the scrub at night to help get all the dirt out of my pores after a long day at the parks. I use the foam wash in the morning.

I use whatever soap the hotel offers. Luckily, I didn’t have to find a bottle to put my face lotion in since it already comes in a small case.

Have an awesome Wednesday! 🙂
