Wise Words: How You See

how you see


Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder!  We all see the world differently, therefore we all feel differently about beauty, specifically our OWN beauty.  In the end, our individual beauty is what makes the world a wonderful place… variety!  People come in so many wonderful packages and there is room to admire them all in their own unique way.  You know what they say, variety is the spice of life!  Celebrate YOU and all of your uniqueness today and everyday.

Therefore, eliminating excess Wheat Flour may have a positive impact on your skin!  As a result, we are giving you our favorite Conversion Chart. If you like to cook and bake, this chart is a great resource that can help you easily substitute Wheat Flour for other ingredients that are Gluten-Free!  We recommend printing it and posting it up in your kitchen…

Skinny Tips: Natural Honey Lemon Blackhead Removal

Blackheads can be an unpleasant, and very persistent, problem!  As a result, we found a fantastic natural remedy that is simple and can be made with items that you might have in your kitchen right now!  Go through your pantry, grab the ingredients, and give it a try!
get rid of blackheads honey lemon natural remedy

Here is what you’ll need:

-Half a lemon



Add 3 to 4 drops of honey to the lemon.  Then rub the lemon directly on to the blackhead prone areas of your face. Leave the lemon and honey mixture on your face for 5 minutes and then wash it with cold water.  (Added bonus, lemon juice is also known to fade other marks/spots on the face and honey is a natural moisturizer!) Depending upon skin type you might want to try this method 1-2 times a week in order to see results.


As with any skin treatment, always test a small area on your skin first to make sure that you don’t get an allergic reaction.

Wise Words: Say Yes

say yes


We love Ms. Tina Fey!  And we couldn’t agree more with these wise words. Often times, we end up talking ourselves out of things when we over-think them.  What would happen if you just said yes? Ask yourself, “What would be the best case scenario? What would be the worst case scenario?” Once you set yourself up for both sides, there will no surprises you can’t tackle! So go ahead and say yes every once in a while instead of analyzing the situation. We bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results!

Skinny Tips: DIY Watercolor Nail Art

We love the nail art trend, but it can get a little pricey to constantly visit the nail salon! As a result, we found this easy Watercolor Nail Art tutorial that you can do at home. It looks professional without the time and money it takes to go to the salon! We love colorful & affordable tricks that keep us fabulous from our heads down to our watercolored toes!


diy watercolor nails


You’ll need:


3 nail polishes




Piece of paper



How to get the look:


Paint your nails with the base colour, and make sure the nails are dry before the next step.


To prepare the sponge, use an ordinary makeup sponge and cut one sponge into six small pieces because you’ll only need a small piece.


Place a small amount of polish on a piece of paper, and pick up some polish with the sponge.


Dab a few times on the paper to get excess polish off the sponge.


Tap the sponge on your nail a few times.


Repeat step 3 to 5 using other polish.


Apply top coat to smooth the lines.

Wise Words: Falling Into Place

falling apart falling into place


Have you ever looked back at a difficult situation and thought, “if that hadn’t happened, then I wouldn’t be where I am today?”  Sometimes when things seem to be at their worst, that is when the best things are molding and building. Embrace change. Embrace life’s challenges. In the end,  it may be for the best, even if it doesn’t seem like it in the moment!
