Proactiv 3 Step Acne Treatment System Review

According to the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, 54% of women over the age of 25 have acne.  I’m here to say that, unfortunately, I think I’m one of those 54%!  I’ve never been really good at following a facial care routine, so I’m not sure if it’s actually acne or just dirty pores, but when I was given the chance by Facing Acne to try Proactiv, I jumped at it!  I had a friend in high school that used Proactiv right when it came out and raved about it, so I was excited to finally try it.

Handmade Gifts with Love

Having found myself recently unemployed, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands.  So I’ve been putting those hands to work producing more handmade gifts for friends in exchange for both money and thanks.  Many have involved my trusty Cricut but others are more, well, hands-on like a small commissioned cross-stitch ornament I’ll be working on this week.  I’d be happy to put these hands to work on your custom, commissioned gifts as well!

Julep Red & Gold Ombre Nail Art Tutorial

If you’ve been following my blog for long enough, you’ll have noticed that I love nail art… but I’m no nail tech.  I do my best, but I usually have to simplify things.  That’s why I LOVE the look of the red & gold ombre nail art tutorial that Julep has shared.  It’s got holiday flare but it’s also elegant enough to really be worn year-round with the right outfit and attitude.

Julep Matte Metallic Fall Manicure

Julep Matte Metallic Fall Manicure

Having been a Julep Maven for almost two years now, I officially own 76 different Julep polishes.  That’s 24% of my entire collection (you can do the math).  So in the last few months, I’ve been really finicky with my Maven selections, opting for makeups or skipping boxes.  But when I saw the new Julep Matte Metallic collection, I couldn’t pick just one… so I splurged and upgraded my box to get all 5 colors.  Once I got them, I fell in love with them all over again and was immediately inspired with an idea.  So I did a fall manicure with some Bundle Monster stamping plates.
